Multiwalled carbon nanotubes in alfalfa and wheat: toxicology and uptake
Data on the bioavailability and toxicity of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in the environment, and, in particular, on their interactions with vascular plants, are limited. We investigated the effects ofExpand

Hydrogen synthesis from biomass pyrolysis with in situ carbon dioxide capture using calcium oxide
Abstract Hydrogen (H2) and other gases (CO2, CO, CH4, H2O) produced during the pyrolysis of cellulose, xylan, lignin and pine (Pinus radiata), with and without added calcium oxide (CaO), were studiedExpand

Novel CaO-SiO2 sorbent and bifunctional Ni/Co-CaO/SiO2 complex for selective H2 synthesis from cellulose.
Catalysis- and sorption-enhanced biomass gasification is a promising route to high-purity hydrogen (H(2)); however, most CaO-based sorbents for CO(2) capture have poor surface area and mechanicalExpand

Dichotomous adsorption behaviour of dyes on an amino-functionalised metal–organic framework, amino-MIL-101(Al)
An amino-functionalised metal–organic framework (MOF), aluminium aminoterephthalate (amino-MIL-101(Al)), has been applied to the adsorptive removal of dyes (cationic methylene blue, MB, and anionicExpand

Effect of CeO₂ addition to Al₂O₃ supports for Pt catalysts on the aqueous-phase reforming of glycerol.
A series of Pt catalysts supported on Al₂O₃ that was doped with different amounts of CeO₂ was developed, characterized, and tested in the aqueous-phase reforming (APR) of glycerol to H₂. CatalystExpand

Polyol-assisted functionalization of carbon nanotubes—a perspective
Since the 1991 rediscovery of carbon nanotubes (CNTs), methods to decorate these materials with well-dispersed, functional nanoparticles have been greatly pursued. Nanoparticle-functionalized carbonExpand

Mesocellular-foam-silica-supported Ni catalyst: Effect of pore size on H2 production from cellulose pyrolysis
Supported nickel metal can be used as a tar-cracking catalyst in the thermal processing of large organics to give H2. Though porous supports offer the opportunity to disperse a relatively largeExpand

Photoresponsive spiropyran-functionalised MOF-808: postsynthetic incorporation and light dependent gas adsorption properties
The first example of a spiropyran-incorporated metal–organic framework was synthesised via a two-step post-synthesis modification of the Zr-oxo nodes in MOF-808. The incorporated spiropyran could notExpand
