This review deals with recent progress on the development of nanocomposite materials formed by conducting organic polymers (COPs) and carbon nanotubes (CNs), both from a fundamental and applied point of view. The combination of the unique properties of CNs with COPs makes of these materials interesting multifunctional systems with great potential in many(More)
On subjecting a bulk 2H-PbI(2) crystal to vacuum annealing at 500 K followed by a sudden cooling at liquid nitrogen temperature stacking faults are generated that separate distinct layers of nanometric thickness in which different numbers of I-Pb-I atomic layers are bundled together. Such structures, containing two, three, four, five etc I-Pb-I atomic(More)
We report experimental data that indicate an anti-Stokes Raman emission, reminiscent of coherent antiStokes raman scattering. It originates from a wave mixing process between the incident laser light l and Stokes Raman light s generated by a surface enhanced Raman scattering SERS mechanism. The variation of anti-Stokes SERS spectra of single-walled carbon(More)
Simple and low cost biosensor based on screen-printed electrode for sensitive detection of some alkylphenols was developed, by entrapment of HRP in a nanocomposite gel based on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([BMIM][PF(6)]) ionic liquid. Raman and FTIR spectroscopy, CV and EIS studies demonstrate(More)
For the single-walled carbon nanotubes, the higher values of anti-Stokes/Stokes Raman intensity ratio (Ias/Is) then the predictions of the Maxwell-Bolzmann formula indicates a CARS emission resulting from a wave mixing process between the incident laser light (ωl) and Stokes Raman light (ωs) generated by a SERS mechanism . The weaker value of (Ias/Is)(More)
The exciton-phonon interaction, considered as a stimulated Raman scattering process, is studied in different semiconductor mixtures: PbI2/TiO2, PbI2/Si and CdS/Si. Raman spectra recorded at excitation wavelengths of 514.5 and 488 nm for PbI2 and CdS, respectively, reveal a strong enhancement of the Raman lines peaked at 97 and 305 cm-1, evaluated by the(More)
Semiconducting single-walled carbon nanotubes resonantly excited by the interband E(22)(S) electronic transitions (at 1064 nm) display for the two components of the radial Raman band-one associated with the isolated tubes and the other associated with the bundled tubes-an anti-Stokes/Stokes Raman intensity ratio (I(aS)/I(S)) which deviates oppositely from(More)
Graphene is widely used in nanotechnologies to amplify the photocatalytic activity of TiO₂, but the development of TiO₂/graphene composites imposes the assessment of their risk to human and environmental health. Therefore, reduced graphene oxide was decorated with two types of TiO₂ particles co-doped with 1% iron and nitrogen, one of them being obtained by(More)
Electrochemical polymerization of N-vinyl carbazole (VC) on carbon nanotube (CNT) films was studied by cyclic voltammetry (CV) in LiClO4/acetonitrile solutions. Comparing the cyclic voltammograms recorded on a blank Pt electrode with those obtained when single- or multi-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT or MWNT) films were previously deposited onto the Pt(More)
The electrochemical polymerization of N-ethyl carbazole (EK) on carbon nanotubes (CNs) films immersed in a LiClO4/acetonitrile solution was studied by cyclic voltammetry. Cyclic voltammograms recorded on a blank Pt electrode were compared with those obtained when CNs films were deposited on a Pt plate. In the latter case, the oxidation maximum is not(More)
