For the practical use of activated carbon (AC) as an adsorbent of CH(4) , tightly packed monoliths with high microporosity are supposed to be one of the best morphologies in terms of storage capacity per apparent volume of the adsorbent material. However, monolith-type ACs may cause diffusion obstacles in adsorption processes owing to their necked pore(More)
Vibrational-rotational properties of CH(4) adsorbed on the nanopores of single-wall carbon nanohorns (SWCNHs) at 105-140 K were investigated using IR spectroscopy. The difference vibrational-rotational bands of the ν(3) and ν(4) modes below 130 K show suppression of the P and R branches, while the Q branches remain. The widths of the Q branches are much(More)
A hydrophobic tetrapodal molecule is composed of carbazole units at the periphery linked by a phenyl spacer on an adamantane core. Tetrapodal adamantane self-assembles into hollow spherical aggregates with a multilayer membrane in organic media. The spherical assembly size is dependent on the organic solvent used. Hollow spheres can entrap guest molecules(More)
The nanoporosities and catalytic activities of Pd nanoparticles dispersed on single wall carbon nanohorns (Pd-SWCNHs) and oxidized single wall carbon nanohorns (Pd-ox-SWCNHs) were examined. A transmission electron microscopy (TEM) observation indicated that Pd nanoparticles of 2-3 nm size were highly dispersed on both the SWCNHs. X-ray photoelectron spectra(More)
Nanosilicas can disperse single-wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) in aqueous solution efficiently; SWCNTs are stably dispersed in aqueous media for more than 6 months. The SWCNT dispersing solution with nanosilica can produce highly conductive transparent films which satisfy the requirements for application to touch panels. Even multiwall carbon nanotube can be(More)
A new modelling-aided approach for the atomistic model of single walled carbon nanohorn (SWNH) creation is presented, based on experimental evidence, on realistic potential of carbon-carbon interactions and on molecular simulations. A new model of SWNHs is next used to predict Ar adsorption properties and to check the molecular fundamentals of the(More)
Timing-and constraint-oriented placement procedures are proposed to reduce design time and cost. These goals are (1) optimizing the intra and inter LSI delays, (2) observance of several electrical constraints such as simultaneous switching, and (3) high precision and high speed delay calculation. Hierarchical pin assignment, timing-driven placement, and(More)
