Sintering and thermal properties of multiwalled carbon nanotube–BaTiO3 composites
Densified multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT)–BaTiO3 composites were successfully fabricated through a spark plasma sintering (SPS) method. The influences of sintering temperature, annealing time, andExpand
Boron nitride nanotubes: functionalization and composites
Boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) are novel because of their wide band gap, superb mechanical properties, high thermal conductivity and robustness to oxidation. These features make BNNTs promisingExpand
Enhancing superplasticity of engineering ceramics by introducing BN nanotubes
Introducing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) into polymer or ceramic matrices has been a promising approach to obtain ultra-strong, extra-toughened materials as well as multifunctional composites. Most of theExpand
Multiwalled carbon nanotube/BaTiO3 nanocomposites: Electrical and rectification properties
Multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT)∕BaTiO3 functional nanocomposites were fabricated via the spark plasma sintering technique. The resistivity of MWNT∕BaTiO3 nanocomposites was found higher than thatExpand
Effects of polymer matrices to the formation of silicon carbide (SiC) nanoporous fibers and nanowires under carbothermal reduction
SiC fibers with varied nano-scale morphologies (i.e., nanowires, nanoparticles, etc) were successfully fabricated by the electrospinning of preceramic polyureasilazane (PUS) with either poly(methylExpand
High-current-induced damage on carbon nanotubes: The case during spark plasma sintering
The influence of high current on the structure and integration of carbon nanotubes during spark plasma sintering is discussed in this paper. Observation of the microstructure showed that most carbonExpand
Manufacture and electrical properties of multiwalled carbon nanotube/BaTiO3 nanocomposite ceramics
In this paper, we report that novel multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT)/BaTiO3 nanocomposite ceramics were successfully fabricated via a hot-press sintering approach. Well dispersed MWNT–BaTiO3Expand
Pyrite nanorod arrays as an efficient counter electrode for dye-sensitized solar cells
Pyrite (FeS2) nanorod arrays were produced on a fluorine doped tin oxide substrate by sulfurizing FeO(OH) nanorods, and then tested as the counter electrode (CE) for dye-sensitized solar cellsExpand
Macroporous silicon oxycarbide fibers with luffa-like superhydrophobic shells.
High-surface-area silicon oxycarbide macroporous fibers were fabricated through in situ cross-linking of a preceramic precursor without a prepatterned template, and the oil-uptake capacity of the corresponding fiber mat is significantly improved by the capsulated nanoparticles. Expand
Systematic Investigation of the Formation of 1D α‐Si3N4 Nanostructures by Using a Thermal‐Decomposition/Nitridation Process
This article describes a simple thermal-decomposition/nitridation method for the large-scale synthesis of 1D α-Si3N4 nanostructures, such as millimeter-scale microribbons, nanosaws, nanoribbons, andExpand
