A novel plasma-electrolysis method is introduced to synthesize high-quality TiO(2) nano/microspheres that exhibited excellent optical absorption covering the range from ultraviolet to infra-red. Both experimental and theoretical results show that the oxygen vacancies in the TiO(2) spheres are primarily responsible for this wide absorption.
The visible-light-induced split of water confined in channels of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) was experimentally studied. Arc-discharging synthesized SWNTs were used to adsorb water vapor and then were irradiated in a vacuum by using light from a camera flash. It was found that a great amount of hydrogen-rich gases could be repeatedly produced(More)
CuO nano/microspheres with a wide diametric distribution were prepared by thermal decomposition of Cu(2)(OH)(3)NO(3) nano/microspheres formed in a simple asymmetric-electrode based cathodic-plasma electrolysis. The morphological, componential, and structural information about the two kinds of spheres were characterized in detail by SEM, TEM, EDX, XPS and(More)
Inorganic synthesis of organic molecules is a significant step for the primordial life. Generally, inorganic synthesis of methane necessitates, in addition to catalyst, a high-temperature and high-pressure environment. Here we will show that such an environment could be locally and instantly realized in the channels of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs)(More)
