Two categories of nanoscale ionic materials (NIMs) based on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were obtained. According to the nature of organic modifier and the type of interaction, these NIMs can be divided into two categories referred to as A-MWCNTs-Fs and I-MWCNTs-Fs, respectively. These MWCNT derivatives were virtually solvent-free and showed good(More)
Calcium carbonate nanoparticles are one of the most economical nanomaterials. However, the ease of agglomeration and lack of functionalities are obstacles to their widespread application. Here we report the preparation and characterization of the solvent-free fluids based on rhombohedral nanoparticles of calcium carbonate, with a soft organic shell on the(More)
Inorganic nanoparticles coated with a soft organic shell possess a different rheological property1 and novel functionalities compared with common solutions or colloids, and these may find important applications in smart sensors,2 advanced composites,3 and novel devices or systems.4-6 These hybrid nanostructures include SiO2, γ-Fe2O3, TiO2, and carbon(More)
Multifunctional integration based on a single nanostructure is emerging as a promising paradigm to future functional materials. In this paper, novel magnetofluorescence nanobowls built with ferroferric mandrel and quantum dots exoderm is reported. Magnetic mandrels are stacked into nanobowls though hydrophobic primary Fe3O4 nanocrystals dragged into anion(More)
We have prepared Fe3O4 nanocrystal-embedded polyaniline hybrids with well-defined cluster-like morphology through macromolecule-induced self-assembly. These magnetic and electrically conductive composite nanoclusters show flowability at room temperature in the absence of any solvent, which offers great potential in applications such as microwave absorbents(More)
