Synthesis and characterization of rigid +2 and +3 heteroleptic dinuclear ruthenium(II) complexes
Abstract Synthesis and characterization of the dinuclear ruthenium coordination complexes with heteroleptic ligand sets, [Cl(terpy)Ru(tpphz)Ru(terpy)Cl](PF6)2 (7) andExpand
Direct measurement of the interactions of amide solvents with single-walled carbon nanotubes using isothermal titration calorimetry.
The interaction enthalpy of amide solvents with single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) dispersions is measured using isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC). N,N-Dimethyl-formamide (DMF) andExpand
Aggregation kinetics of single-walled carbon nanotubes investigated using mechanically wrapped multinuclear complexes: probing the tube-tube repulsive barrier.
The rational design of supraparticle assemblies requires a detailed understanding of directed assembly processes. The stability of dispersions of nanoscale materials, like single-walled carbonExpand
Quantification of hexagonal boron nitride impurities in boron nitride nanotubes via FTIR spectroscopy
Preparation of high-quality boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) from commercially available stock is critical for eventual industry adoption and to perform comprehensive experimental studies of BNNTs.Expand
Synthesis and properties of symmetrical N,N′-bis(alkyl)imidazolium bromotrichloroferrate(III) paramagnetic, room temperature ionic liquids with high short-term thermal stability
Abstract A series of paramagnetic ionic liquids (PILs) based on N,N′-bis(alkyl)imidazolium bromotrichloroferrate(III), [(Cn)2Im][FeCl3Br] (Im = imidazole; Cn = ethyl, butyl, hexyl, octyl, decyl,Expand
Binding of Dinuclear Ruthenium Complexes, SWNTs and Nanoparticles for Hybrid Nanocomposite Materials
ABSTRACT Integration of nanomaterials into composite systems is the next evolutionary step in nanoscale science. Until recently nanocomposites are formed by embedding nanomaterial components intoExpand
Effect of Surface Treatment on Liquid Adhesion Inside 3-D Structures
This material is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation through the Robert Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program under grant # DUE – 1239896. Any opinions, finding, and conclusionsExpand
Ionic Liquid Microemullsions, Templates for Directing Morphology of Cellulose Biopolymer Nanoparticles (Briefing Charts)
Abstract : Cellulose is the most abundant natural polymer on Earth. Cellulose is intra and inter-molecularly connected by hydrogen bonds, and is insoluble in water and most organic solvents. IonicExpand
Adsorption studies of divalent, dinuclear coordination complexes as molecular spacers on SWCNTs.
In order to enhance the electrical energy storage capabilities of nanostructured carbon materials, inter-particle spacer strategies are needed to maintain ion-accessible surface area between theExpand
