This work contextualizes the research of materials that can be applied as artificial muscles. The main motivation of this research is the importance of the development of mechatronic systems for the replacement of traditional devices of actuation and motion based on rotational electrical motors by other devices that reproduce biological muscle movements.(More)
Polycrystalline Nd(1-x)Eu(x)NiO(3) (0≤x≤0.5) compounds were synthesized in order to investigate the character of the metal-insulator (MI) phase transition in this series. Samples were prepared through the sol-gel route and subjected to heat treatments at ∼1000 °C under oxygen pressures as high as 80 bar. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and neutron powder(More)
We report on the synthesis of two and three dimensional carbonaceous sponges produced directly from graphene oxide (GO) into which functionalized iron nanoparticles can be introduced to render it magnetic. This simple, low cost procedure, wherein an iron polymeric resin precursor is introduced into the carbon framework, results in carbon-based materials(More)
We have measured magnetization M(T,H), electrical resistivity ρ(T,H), thermal conductivity κ(T,H), and thermopower S(T,H) of polycrystalline samples of Nd1−xEuxNiO3 (0 ≤ x ≤ 0.5) as a function of temperature and external magnetic field. The data indicate a metal-insulator (MI) transition in a wide range of temperature (200 < TMI < 325 K). The magnetic(More)
We have studied the experimental conditions needed to produce LaNiO3 (LNO) nanostructures using a template-assisted method. In this route, a mesoporous anodic aluminum oxide template was filled with a chemical solution that had been prepared with polymeric precursors route. The precursor solutions and synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray(More)
The paper reports the catalytic action of the basic sites of nanocrystalline particles of rare earth-doped magnesium oxide in the aldolization reaction between acetone and methanol leading to the C–C bond formation of an a,b-unsaturated compound (methyl vinyl ketone), also forming methyl ethyl ketone and isopropyl alcohol. Undoped and doped MgO samples were(More)
The technological interest in transparent conductive oxide films (TCOs) has motivated several works in processing techniques, in order to obtain adequate routes to application. In this way, this work describes a new route to obtain antimony-doped tin oxide (ATO) films, based in colloidal dispersions of oxide nanocrystals. The nanoparticles were obtained by(More)
