Nanostructured titanium oxides with various morphologies were prepared through the hydrothermal treatment of TiO2 anatase, using LiOH, NaOH and KOH as a peptizing agent at 400 K for 30 hrs. The obtained samples were characterized using the scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, BET measurement and the electron(More)
Surface functional groups on carbon dots (CDs) play a critical role in defining their photoluminescence properties and functionalities. A new kind of organosilane-functionalized CDs (OS-CDs) were formed by a low temperature (150°C) solvothermal synthesis of citric acid in N-(β-aminoethyl)-γ-aminopropylmethyl-dimethoxysilane (AEAPMS). Uniquely, the(More)
CO2 adsorption measurement at 273 K was employed to see if the porous material has either micropore or mesopore dominantly. The adsorption isotherm of CO2 on microporous solid such as zeolite A and Y was the typical Langmuir type while on SBA-15, silica gel and polymer, the adsorption isotherm was proportional to the applied pressure, following the Henry's(More)
Platinum nanoparticle has been supported on the tubular type titanium oxide using incipient wetness method employing H2PtCl6 as a precursor, where the loading was controlled to 4 wt%. The result of transmission electron micrographs of the sample showed the formation of Pt nanoparticles inside the tubule. The distribution of the particle size was found to be(More)
Magnesium ion exchanged zeolite A was subject to the measurement of the temperature programmed desorption of NH3 to explore the possibility of the potential hydrogen carrier. The result suggested that the Mg supported NaA zeolite released a significant amount of ammonia corresponding to 1.4 Hwt% hydrogen at around 373 K. Under the same condition after the(More)
As a potential adsorbent for humidity control, the mesoporous silica, SBA-15, with various pore sizes that was synthesized hydrothermally at different temperatures was examined by measuring the rate of water adsorption under ambient condition, 2.53 kPa H2O and 30 degrees C. The adsorption saturation quantity and the diffusion coefficient of water were(More)
We report carbon nanodots that can be utilized as effective color converting phosphors for the production of white light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Blue-excitable and yellow-emitting carbon nanodots, functionalized with 3-(imidazolidin-2-on-1-yl)propylmethyldimethoxysilane (IPMDS)-derived moieties (IS-CDs), are synthesized by a novel one-pot reaction in which(More)
Augmenting fluorescence intensity is of vital importance to the development of chemical and biochemical sensing, imaging and miniature light sources. Here we report an unprecedented fluorescence enhancement with a novel architecture of multilayer three-dimensional colloidal photonic crystals self-assembled from polystyrene spheres. The new technique uses a(More)
