One-dimensional Ni/Ni3C core-shell nanoball chains with an average diameter by around 30 nm were synthesized by means of a mild chemical solution method using a soft template of trioctylphosphine oxide (TOPO). It was revealed that the uniform Ni nanochains were capped with Ni3C thin shells by about 1-4 nm in thickness and each Ni core consists of(More)
Well-aligned and uniform Nickel nanochains with diameters ranging from 20 to 110 nm have been synthesized using a simple template-free solution-phase method using environment friendly reagents under diverse temperature and magnetic field. Our results indicate that the size and morphology of as-prepared nanochains can be controlled by adjusting the reaction(More)
Highly uniform and well-aligned one-dimensional Ni nanochains with controllable diameters, including 33, 78, and 120 nm, have been synthesized by applying an external magnetic field without any surface modifying agent. The formation can be explained by the interactions of magnetic dipoles in the presence of applied magnetic field. Magnetic measurements(More)
Three powder samples of Ni nanochains formed of polycrystalline Ni nanoparticles with an estimated diameter of about 30 nm have been synthesized by a wet chemical method using different organic surfactants. These samples, having magnetically/structurally core-shell structures, all with a ferromagnetic Ni core, are Ni@Ni(3)C nanochains, Ni@Ni(SG) nanochains(More)
Fine powders of micron- and submicron-sized particles of undoped Cu(2)O semiconductor, with three different sizes and morphologies, have been synthesized by different chemical processes. These samples include nanospheres 200 nm in diameter, octahedra of size 1 µm and polyhedra of size 800 nm. They exhibit a wide spectrum of magnetic properties. At low(More)
High quality single-crystal magnesium diboride (MgB(2)) nanowires with lengths exceeding 10 μm were successfully synthesized by hybrid physical chemical vapor deposition. The magnetization and electrical transport properties of single-crystal MgB(2) nanowires (NWs) were measured. The superconducting transition temperature of the NWs was 37 K, as confirmed(More)
Chains of superparamagnetic (SPM) Ni nanoparticles of 20 and 33 nm in diameter are synthesized by a facile, template-free, wet chemical method in magnetic field. The blocking temperature for the sample of 20 nm appears at T(B) approximately 255 K, above which the sample exhibits SPM behaviors by a M(H) measurement. At T < T(B), the temperature dependent(More)
Using a wet chemical method, we have synthesized chain-like structure with diameters of 200-250 nm and lengths of approximately 10 microm formed by assembly of small cobalt nanoparticles. The chain-like structures were realized via reaction of CoCl2 x 6H2O and N2H4 in the presence of PVP in an ethylene glycol solution. Magnetic measurements show a(More)
In recent years, the synergistic effects of Au-based hybrids have generated enormous scientific interest. The hybrids of Au and Co are expected to exhibit attractive properties. In this paper, we report the successful fabrication of the nanohybrids between bulk-immiscible Au and Co with chain-like structures via a mild solution method. Elemental mapping,(More)
