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)
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)

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 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).
The preparation, X-ray structure, and detailed physical characterization are presented for a new type of single-molecule magnet [Mn4(O2CMe)2(pdmH)6](ClO4)2 (1). Complex 1.2MeCN.Et2O crystallizes in the triclinic space group P1, with cell dimensions at 130 K of a = 11.914(3) A, b = 15.347(4) A, c = 9.660(3) A, alpha = 104.58(1) degree, beta = 93.42(1)(More)
By adopting a facile synthetic strategy, we obtained a microporous redox-active metal-organic framework (MOF), namely, Cu(2,7-AQDC) (2,7-H2AQDC = 2,7-anthraquinonedicarboxylic acid) (1), and utilized it as a cathode active material in lithium batteries. With a voltage window of 4.0-1.7 V, both metal clusters and anthraquinone groups in the ligands exhibited(More)
The neutral radical 1,3,5-trithia-2,4,6-triazapentalenyl (TTTA) is a prototype of molecule-based bistable materials. TTTA crystals undergo a first-order phase transition between their low-temperature diamagnetic and high-temperature paramagnetic phases, with a large hysteresis loop that encompasses room temperature. Here, based on ab initio molecular(More)
