of Pd nanowires without chemical contaminations and deformations are obtained after removal of the silica matrix using aqueous HF. Our study indicates that mesoporous silicas such as C 16 MCM-41, C 22 MCM-41, and SBA-15 can act as good templates for the synthesis of Pd nanowires. Moreover , a significantly depressed melting point of the Pd nano-wires is… (More)
Soft biocompatible gels comprised of rolled up graphene oxide nanocapsules within the pores of silanized hydrogels may be used as electrochemical pseudocapacitors with physiological glucose or KOH as a reducing agent, affording a material suitable for devices requiring pulses with characteristic time less than a second.
Stable annulated diaminocarbene ligands 7,9-bis(2,4,6-trimethylphenyl)-6b,9a-dihydroace naphtha[1,2-d]imidazolin-2-ylidene and 7,9-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)-6b,9a-dihydroacenaphtho[1,2-d]imidazolin-2-ylidene; designated as (BIAN-SIMes, 5a,) and (BIAN-SIPr, 5b), respectively, have been prepared. The base dependent decomposition of imidazolinium salts via… (More)
