Charge carrier control is a key issue in the development of electronic functions of semiconductive materials. Beyond the simple enhancement of conductivity, high charge carrier accumulation can realize various phenomena, such as chemical reaction, phase transition, magnetic ordering, and superconductivity. Electric double layers (EDLs), formed at(More)
We prepared submicron-scale spherical hollow particles of anatase TiO2 by using a polystyrene-bead template. The obtained particles were very uniform in size, with a diameter of 490 nm and a shell thickness of 30 nm. The Brunauer-Emmett-Teller surface area measurements revealed a large value of 70 m2/g. The photocatalytic property was investigated by the(More)
Progress in metal–organic framework (MOF) research has recently opened up new possibilities to realize hybrid materials with unique solid-state electric properties, such as ferroelectricity, piezoelectricity, and dielectricity. Compared with conventional pure inorganic/organic compounds, MOFs take advantage of structural tunability and multifunctionality to(More)
We successfully obtained a paramagnetic one-dimensional (1D) chain complex [{Ru2(O2CCH3)4}{Pt2(piam)2(NH3)4}2]n(PF6)4n·4nH2O (2; piam = pivalamidate) extended by metal-metal bonds. Compound 2 comprises two types of metal species, ruthenium and platinum, where an acetate-bridged dinuclear ruthenium complex (i.e., [Ru2]) and a pivalamidate-bridged platinum(More)
Square planar complexes of the type Ni(L(1))(2), Ni(L(2))(2), Cu(L(1))(2), and Cu(L(2))(2), where L(1)H = 2-hydroxy-5-t-octylacetophenone oxime and L(2)H = 2-hydroxy-5-n-propylacetophenone oxime, have been prepared and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, cyclic voltammetry, UV/vis spectroscopy, field-effect-transistor measurements, density(More)
We fabricated a rechargeable molecular cluster battery, based on a cathode active material, [Mn(12)O(12)(CH(3)COO)(16)(H(2)O)(4)]. The charging-discharging experiments revealed rechargeable battery performance with a capacity of ca. 90 A h kg(-1), while the first discharging process exhibited an extremely high value of 200-250 A h kg(-1).
We carried out in operando Mo K-edge X-ray absorption fine structure measurements on the rechargeable molecular cluster batteries (MCBs) of polyoxometalates (POMs), in which a Keggin-type POM, [PMo(12)O(40)](3-), is utilized as a cathode active material with a lithium metal anode. The POM-MCBs exhibit a large capacity of ca. 270 (A h)/kg in a voltage range(More)
