As a cation-deficient, p-type semiconductor, copper sulfide (Cu(2-x)S) shows promise for applications such as photovoltaics, memristors, and plasmonics. However, these applications demand precise tuning of the crystal phase as well as the stoichiometry of Cu(2-x)S, an ongoing challenge in the synthesis of Cu(2-x)S materials for a specific application. Here,(More)
Semiconductor nanowires (NWs) have been studied extensively for over two decades for their novel electronic, photonic, thermal, electrochemical and mechanical properties. This comprehensive review article summarizes major advances in the synthesis, characterization, and application of these materials in the past decade. Developments in the understanding of(More)
Colloidal GaP nanowires (NWs) were synthesized on a large scale by a surfactant-free, self-seeded solution-liquid-solid (SLS) method using triethylgallium and tris(trimethylsilyl)phosphine as precursors and a noncoordinating squalane solvent. Ga nanoscale droplets were generated in situ by thermal decomposition of the Ga precursor and subsequently promoted(More)
Gallium phosphide (GaP) nanowire photocathodes synthesized using a surfactant-free solution-liquid-solid (SLS) method were investigated for their photoelectrochemical evolution of hydrogen. Zinc as a p-type dopant was introduced into the nanowires during synthesis to optimize the photocathode's response. Investigation of the electrical properties of(More)
Some fundamental issues in ground-state density functional theory are discussed without equations: (1) The standard Hohenberg-Kohn and Kohn-Sham theorems were proven for a Hamiltonian that is not quite exact for real atoms, molecules, and solids. (2) The density functional for the exchange-correlation energy, which must be approximated, arises from the(More)
Finite element model of crossbeam of GMCU2060 gantry machine center is proposed, the static and dynamic stiffness is analyzed by using finite element analysis. The weak link of the crossbeam is discovered and a modification scheme is put forward for the design of the crossbeam structure. The analysis shows that the maximum deformation of the improved(More)
A method for catalytic asymmetric gamma sulfenylation of carbonyl compounds has been developed. In the presence of an appropriate catalyst, thiols not only add to the gamma position of allenoates, overcoming their propensity to add to the beta position in the absence of a catalyst, but do so with very good enantioselectivity. Sulfur nucleophiles are now(More)
We report a simple, one-step method for assembling spherical nanoparticles into wires without the need for lithographic templating. It is effective for a variety of conducting and nonconducting nanoparticles and substrates, and the only material requirement is that the nanoparticles be placed in a colloidal suspension that is wettable on the desired(More)
Colloidal metal nanowire based transparent conductors are excellent candidates to replace indium-tin-oxide (ITO) owing to their outstanding balance between transparency and conductivity, flexibility, and solution-processability. Copper stands out as a promising material candidate due to its high intrinsic conductivity and earth abundance. Here, we report a(More)
Because carbonyl groups are ubiquitous in organic chemistry, the ability to synthesize functionalized carbonyl compounds, particularly enantioselectively, is an important objective. We have developed a straightforward and versatile method for catalytic asymmetric carbon-carbon bond formation at the γ-position of carbonyl compounds, specifically,(More)
