In this paper, we presented the preparation procedure of Pt nanoparticles with the well-controlled polyhedral morphology and size by a modified polyol method using AgNO(3) in accordance with the reduction of H(2)PtCl(6) in EG at high temperature around 160°C. The methods of UV-vis spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy(More)
The global minimum structures for Li(x)CoO(2) compositions where 0 ≤ x ≤ 1 were probed by using a hybrid evolutionary algorithm with an underlying ab initio structural relaxation scheme. The method successfully predicted experimentally observed variants of layered configurations at various degrees of lithiation and the spinel (Fd3[combining macron]m) phase(More)
Single-crystalline platinum nanocubes with porous morphology were synthesized for the first time by using ethylene glycol, HCl, and polyvinylpyrrolidone as the reducing agents of H2PtCl6. The morphology and size distribution of the Pt particles formed were studied with a high-resolution transmission electron microscope and selected-area electron diffraction(More)
The ongoing search for fast Li-ion conducting solid electrolytes has driven the deployment surge on density functional theory (DFT) computation and materials informatics for exploring novel chemistries before actual experimental testing. Existing structure prototypes can now be readily evaluated beforehand not only to map out trends on target properties or(More)
