Hierarchically organized silica-titania monoliths were synthesized under purely aqueous conditions by applying a new ethylene glycol-modified single-source precursor, such as 3-[3-{tris(2-hydroxyethoxy)silyl}propyl]acetylacetone coordinated to a titanium center. The influence of the silicon- and titanium-containing single-source precursor, the novel(More)
There is great interest in the self-organization of the proper subunits as a new strategy for the realization of fluorescent chemosensors. In this article, it is shown that commercially available fluorescent dyes, functionalized with triethoxysilane moieties, can be converted into fluorescent chemosensors by simple inclusion into silica nanostructures.(More)
The optimum performance of an optical oxygen sensor based on polysulfone (PSF)/[Ru(II)-Tris(4,7-diphenyl-1,10-phenanthroline)] octylsulfonate (Ru(dpp)OS) was checked by carefully tuning the parameters affecting the membrane preparation. In particular, membranes having thickness ranging between 0.2 and 8.0 microm with various luminophore concentrations were(More)
A novel method for the preparation of CuS nanoparticles based on the fast nucleation of the sulphide has been developed. The particles have been synthesized by reaction of thioacetic acid with water and copper carboxylates (acetate, propionate) in the corresponding carboxylic acid (acetic, propionic) as a solvent. The use of carboxylic acids presents(More)
The hydrolysis-polycondensation behaviour of alcoholic solutions containing Si(OEt)4 and Ti(OBun)4, in different molar ratios (Si/Ti = 10-0.2), was analysed by laser desorption/ionisation (LDI) and matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionisation (MALDI) mass spectrometry. The solutions were prepared using operating conditions usually employed in the sol-gel(More)
We report here on the production of nitrogen doped carbon using the hydrothermal carbonization process of nitrogen containing carbohydrates under mild carbonization temperatures. The resulting materials contain significant amounts of nitrogen in their composition and display a high degree of aromatisation. The nitrogen contents are also maintained after(More)
The exchange of the monocarboxylate ligand of the zirconium methacrylate oxocluster Zr(6)O(4)(OH)(4)(OMc)(12) (OMc = CH(2)=CH(CH(3))COO) with dicarboxylic acids (trans,trans muconic acid and terephthalic acid) leads to porous zirconium dicarboxylates exhibiting the UiO-66 architecture; the mild reaction conditions allow the control of their particle size.
This paper presents an ontologically founded basic architecture for information systems, which are intended to capture, represent, and maintain metadata for various domains of clinical and epidemiological research. Clinical trials exhibit an important basis for clinical research, and the accurate specification of metadata and their documentation and(More)
An original synthetic route, based on the combination of a single-source precursor, UV-photodegradation and inverse w/o miniemulsion, is used to prepare Au nanoparticles (NPs) dispersed on titania. The source of the nanocomposite materials is the photolabile single-source precursor AuCl4(NH4)7[Ti2(O2)2(cit)(Hcit)]2·12H2O, which is suspended in a w/o(More)
