Platinum Deposition on Carbon Nanotubes via Chemical Modification
Carbon nanotubes can be functionalized by oxidation of HNO3 or H2SO4−HNO3. The latter shows a higher capability in producing a high density of surface functional groups. These groups can act asExpand
Broadband optical limiting with multiwalled carbon nanotubes
Optical limiting effects in multiwalled carbon nanotubes have been observed in the visible and infrared spectral regions with nanosecond laser pulses. The multiwalled carbon nanotubes investigatedExpand
Decoration of activated carbon nanotubes with copper and nickel
Abstract Activated carbon nanotubes were used as precursors for preparing copper- and nickel-decorated nanotubes. The nature of the activated and decorated nanotubes was studied using high-resolutionExpand
X-Ray photoelectron spectroscopic characterization of [{Pt(PPh3)2(µ3-S)}2PtCl2], [{Pt2(PPh3)4(µ3-S)2Cu}2(µ-dppf)][PF6]2[dppf = Fe (C5H4PPh2)2] and other heterometallic aggregates derived from
Lewis acid–base reactions between [{Pt(PPH3)2(µ-S)}2] and [{Cu(NO3)(µ-dppf)}2]–NH4PF6[dppf = Fe(C5H4PPh2)2] and [PtCl2(NCMe)2] gave hexanuclear [{Pt2(PPh3)4(µ3-S)2Cu}2(µ-dppf)][PF6]2 and trinuclearExpand
Enhancing multiphoton upconversion through energy clustering at sublattice level.
The applications of lanthanide-doped upconversion nanocrystals in biological imaging, photonics, photovoltaics and therapeutics have fuelled a growing demand for rational control over the emissionExpand
Preparation and assembly of colloidal gold nanoparticles in CTAB-stabilized reverse microemulsion
Monodisperse colloidal Au nanospheres (ca. 7 nm) in hexane are prepared in quaternary CTAB/n-pentanol/hexane/water reverse microemulsion (CTAB stands for cetyltrimethylammonium bromide). TheirExpand
Electroless plating of metals onto carbon nanotubes activated by a single-step activation method
In this work, carbon nanotubes were activated with Pd−Sn catalytic nuclei via a single-step activation approach. These activated nanotubes were used as precursors for obtaining nickel- andExpand
A zwitterionic 1D/2D polymer co-crystal and its polymorphic sub-components: a highly selective sensing platform for HIV ds-DNA sequences.
Polymorphic compounds {[Cu(dcbb)2(H2O)2]·10H2O}n (2, 1D chain), [Cu(dcbb)2]n (3, 2D layer) and their co-crystal {[Cu(dcbb)2(H2O)][Cu(dcbb)2]2}n (4) have been prepared from the coordination reactionExpand
Aryl-BIAN-ligated silver(I) trifluoromethoxide complex.
A reaction of acetonitrile-solvated AgOCF3 with 1 equiv. of Aryl-BIAN ligand in THF at room-temperature afforded the silver(i) complex (Aryl-BIAN)AgOCF3 (1) in 75% yield. The crystal structure ofExpand
Luminescent [Cu₄I₄] aggregates and [Cu₃I₃]-cyclic coordination polymers supported by quinolyl-triazoles.
Quinolyl-1,2,3-triazole ligand supported [Cu4I4] stair-step aggregates [Cu4I4(L1)2] (1), [Cu4I4(L2)2] (2), [Cu4I4(L3)2] (3), [Cu4I4(L4)2] (4), [Cu4I4(L5)2] (5), and six-membered [Cu3I3] metallacycleExpand
