Preparation of Nanographene oxide (NGO) - Gelatin hybrids for efficient treatment of Neuroblastoma. Nanohybrids were prepared via non-covalent interactions. Spectroscopic tools have been used to discriminate the chemical states of NGO prior and after gelatin coating, with UV visible spectroscopy revealing the maximum binding capacity of gelatin to NGO.(More)
A new amorphous compound with the initial atomic composition Al 43 Li 43 Y 6 Ni 8 applied as electrode material for Li-ion batteries is investigated. Unlike other amorphous compounds so-far investigated as anode materials, it already contains Li as a base element in the uncycled state. The amorphous compound powder is prepared by high energy ball milling of(More)
Hexagonal Aluminium nitride (h-AlN) is an important wide-bandgap semiconductor material which is conventionally fabricated by high temperature carbothermal reduction of alumina under toxic ammonia atmosphere. Here we report a simple, low cost and potentially scalable mechanochemical procedure for the green synthesis of nanostructured h-AlN from a powder(More)
Trilayered Pd/MnO x /Pd nanomembranes are fabricated as the cathode catalysts for Li-O2 batteries. The combination of Pd and MnO x facilitates the transport of electrons, lithium ions, and oxygen-containing intermediates, thus effectively decomposing the discharge product Li2O2 and significantly lowering the charge overpotential and enhancing the power(More)
With Fe2O3 as a proof-of-concept, free-standing nanomembrane structure is demonstrated to be highly advantageous to improve the performance of Li-ion batteries. The Fe2O3 nanomembrane electrodes exhibit ultra-long cycling life at high current rates with satisfactory capacity (808 mAh g(-1) after 1000 cycles at 2 C and 530 mAh g(-1) after 3000 cycles at 6 C)(More)
