Evaluation of synthetic methods for microporous metal–organic frameworks exemplified by the competitive formation of [Cu2(btc)3(H2O)3] and [Cu2(btc)(OH)(H2O)]
Six different synthetic methods (solvothermal, microwave-assisted, atmospheric pressure and reflux, ultrasonic and mechanochemical conditions) for the metal–organic framework [Cu3(btc)2(H2O)3] (btc =Expand
Metastable β-Bi2O3 nanoparticles with high photocatalytic activity from polynuclear bismuth oxido clusters.
The β-Bi(2)O(3) nanoparticles show excellent photocatalytic activity as demonstrated by dye decomposition (rhodamine B, methyl orange, methylene blue and orange G) under visible light. Expand
Optically tunable chiral nematic mesoporous cellulose films.
A straightforward and scalable way to produce iridescent, mesoporous cellulose membranes with tunable colors and porosity with chiral nematic structures and tunable optical properties is demonstrated. Expand
Two novel nanoscaled bismuth oxido clusters, [Bi38O45(OMc)22(C8H7SO3)2(DMSO)6(H2O)1.5]·2.5H2O and [Bi38O45(HSal)22(OMc)2(DMSO)15(H2O)]·DMSO·2H2O
Abstract The synthesis of [Bi38O45(OMc)22(C8H7SO3)2(DMSO)6(H2O)1.5]·2.5H2O (1·2.5H2O) (OMc—methacrylate) and [Bi38O45(HSal)22(OMc)2(DMSO)15(H2O)]·DMSO·2H2O(2·DMSO·2H2O) (Hsal—salicylate) startingExpand
Chiral nematic cellulose-gold nanoparticle composites from mesoporous photonic cellulose.
Gold nanoparticles (NPs) have been loaded into mesoporous photonic cellulose (MPC) films. The NPs show a low polydispersity and a nanoparticle-based plasmonic chiroptical activity with potential forExpand
Hydrolysis of a basic bismuth nitrate--formation and stability of novel bismuth oxido clusters.
Examination of the fragmentation pathways of 1a and 2 by infrared multi-photon dissociation (IRMPD) tandem MS experiments allows the identification of novel bismuth oxido cluster species in the gas phase. Expand
Nanoscale tungsten trioxide synthesized by in situ twin polymerization.
Hydrolysis studies on bismuth nitrate: synthesis and crystallization of four novel polynuclear basic bismuth nitrates.
Variation of the conditions for partial hydrolysis of Bi(NO(3))(3) gave bismuth oxido nitrates of even higher nuclearity, and differences in the number of DMSO molecules (coordinated and noncoordinated) and ligand (nitrate, D MSO) coordination modes are observed. Expand
Metastable β-Bi2O3 Nanoparticles with Potential for Photocatalytic Water Purification Using Visible Light Irradiation
The photocatalytic activity of as-prepared β-Bi2O3 nanoparticles for the decomposition of phenol, 4-chlorophenol, 2,4-dichlorphenol), 4-nitrophenol, triclosan and ethinyl estradiol is demonstrated. Expand
