Fe(x)Pt(100-x) nanoparticles of varying composition have been synthesized with various shapes and sizes using a high pressure synthesis method which allows control of synthesis conditions, in particular the reaction temperature. Tailoring the shapes and sizes of Fe(x)Pt(1-x) nanoparticles allows one to control a variety of properties that are relevant to(More)
New material UCB-1 is synthesized via the delamination of zeolite precursor MCM-22 (P) at pH 9 using an aqueous solution of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, tetrabutylammonium fluoride, and tetrabutylammonium chloride at 353 K. Characterization by powder X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, and nitrogen physisorption at 77 K indicates the(More)
While enzymes are valuable tools in many fields of biotechnology, they are fragile and must be protected against denaturing conditions such as unfavorable solution pH. Within living organisms, chaperonins help enzymes fold into their native shape and protect them from damage. Inspired by this natural solution, mesoporous silica SBA-15 with different pore(More)
