A facile polyol synthesis was used for the deposition of Ag nanoparticles on electrospun TiO2 nanofibers for the subsequent fabrication of Ag/TiO2 nanofiber membrane. The permeate flux of the Ag/TiO2 nanofiber membrane was remarkably high compared to commercial P25 deposited membrane. The Ag/TiO2 nanofiber membrane achieved 99.9% bacteria inactivation and(More)
Multifunctional nanocomposites (GO-TiO2-Ag) integrating 2D GO sheets, 1D TiO2 nanorods and 0D Ag nanoparticles were synthesized via a facile two-phase method and characterized by various analytical techniques including TEM, EDS and XRD. The GO-TiO2-Ag nanocomposites demonstrate remarkably enhanced photocatalytic activities in degrading AO 7 and phenol under(More)
Until recently, the histologic diagnosis of obstetrical and gynecologic neoplasia was based principally on morphologic criteria. However, interobserver reproducibility for entities such as squamous intraepithelial, endometrial, and trophoblastic disease varies widely between observers. This inherent variability in interpretation between individuals has led(More)
A novel hierarchical ZnO/Cu "corn-like" material was successfully synthesized via facile low temperature hydrothermal and photo-deposition methods. This novel hierarchical material was well characterized by FESEM, XRD, EDS, UV-Vis. This novel material displayed high photodegradation and antibacterial capability under the irradiation of visible light. This(More)
Hierarchical 3D dendritic TiO2 nanospheres building with ultralong 1D TiO2 nanoribbon/wires were hydrothermally synthesized via controlling the hydrolysis rate of precursor by EG. It is found that the EG and Cl(-) in the precursor solution are the dominant factors in controlling the hydrolysis rate of Ti(4+) from TTIP, and the growing direction of 1D TiO2,(More)
Cylinder- and bamboo-shaped boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) have been synthesized in large scale via a facile chemical vapor reaction route using ammonia borane as a precursor. The structure and chemical composition of the as-synthesized BNNTs are extensively characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, high-resolution transmission(More)
Recently, some attempts have been made to enhance the gas barrier properties of semicrystalline polymers by precisely controlling the arrangement of their impermeable crystalline lamellae. However, it is still a great challenge to achieve regular arrangement of the lamellae along the direction perpendicular to the gas diffusion path, especially using(More)
Managing the wastewater discharged from oil and shale gas fields is a big challenge, because this kind of wastewater is normally polluted by high contents of both oils and salts. Conventional pressure-driven membranes experience little success for treating this wastewater because of either severe membrane fouling or incapability of desalination. In this(More)
It is still a challenge to photocatalytically cogenerate clean water and energy from dye wastewater owing to the relatively low photocatalytic efficiency of photocatalysts. In this study, novel-structured TiO2/CuO composite nanofibers were successfully fabricated via facile electrospinning. For the first time, the TiO2/CuO composite nanofibers demonstrated(More)
Novel SiOC nanocomposites were successfully synthesized from commercial silica sol and sucrose via a simply designed route. The formation of SiOC nanocomposites was studied using thermogravimetry and differential scanning calorimetry. The synthesized nanocomposites were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, x-ray fluorescence(More)
