The photocatalyst-enzyme coupled system for artificial photosynthesis process is one of the most promising methods of solar energy conversion for the synthesis of organic chemicals or fuel. Here we report the synthesis of a novel graphene-based visible light active photocatalyst which covalently bonded the chromophore, such as multianthraquinone substituted(More)
Thermal stability behavior of 1H, 1H,2H,2H-perfluorooctyl trichlorosilane self-assembled on aluminum substrates is characterized using a grazing-angle Fourier transform infrared spectrometer, Fourier transform-Raman spectroscopy, and contact angle measurements. The self-assembled monolayer (SAM) is heated quasi-statically from room temperature to above 633(More)
The thermal stability of short alkanethiol CH(3)(CH(2))(7)SH (C(8)) and long C(18) self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) is investigated using grazing angle reflection-absorption infrared spectroscopy, cyclic voltammetry, and molecular dynamics simulation. We track the disordering of SAM by untilting and gauche defect accumulation with increasing temperature in(More)
Electret ion chambers are inexpensive, light-weight, commercially available, passive charge-integrating devices for accurate measurement of different radiations. Performance of electret ion chambers for surface alpha contamination measurement was evaluated. Ion chambers of two types and electrets of three thicknesses were used for the study. Calibration of(More)
In the present article, the gas sensing behaviour of nanocrystalline CuGa(2)O(4) towards H(2), liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and NH(3) has been reported for the first time. Nanocrystalline powders of CuGa(2)O(4) having average particle sizes in the range of 30-60nm have been prepared through thermal decomposition of an aqueous precursor solution comprising(More)
Proton-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) method was employed to study the concentration of heavy elements in betel leaves, betel nuts, and mineral lime consumed in Bangladesh. The samples were collected from different parts of Bangladesh and analyzed by the thicktarget external beam technique of the PIXE method. The samples were exposed to the proton beam as(More)
