Thin layers of indium tin oxide are widely used as transparent coatings and electrodes in solar energy cells, flat-panel displays, antireflection coatings, radiation protection and lithium-ion battery materials, because they have the characteristics of low resistivity, strong absorption at ultraviolet wavelengths, high transmission in the visible, high(More)
Layered compounds are nanostructured, intrinsically anisotropic materials which often undergo intercalation reactions producing host– guest complexes. In this work examples from the molybdenum disulfide chemistry are used for discussing how the properties of the products may be regulated by appropriate selection of the guests species used for(More)
We report a successful ligand- and liquid-free solid state route to form metal pyrophosphates within a layered graphitic carbon matrix through a single step approach involving pyrolysis of previously synthesized organometallic derivatives of a cyclotriphosphazene. In this case, we show how single crystal Mn(2)P(2)O(7) can be formed on either the micro- or(More)
Both low-dimensional bar-coded metal oxide layers, which exhibit molecular hinging, and free-standing organic nanostructures can be obtained from unique nanofibers of vanadium oxide (VO(x)). The nanofibers are successfully synthesized by a simple chemical route using an ethanolic solution of vanadium pentoxide xerogel and dodecanethiol resulting in a double(More)
The effect of the neutral surfactant dodecylamine and octadecylamine on the synthesis of TiO2-based nanostructures by the treatment of anatase with NaOH under hydrothermal conditions in the temperature range 120-150 degrees C and different reaction times was investigated. The products analyzed by electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, FT-IR and elemental(More)
This study was conducted a promising approach to surface functionalization developed for lipid-core nanocapsules and the merit to pursue new strategies to treat solid tumors. Bromelain-functionalized multiple-wall lipid-core nanocapsules (Bro-MLNC-Zn) were produced by self-assembling following three steps of interfacial reactions. Physicochemical and(More)
The synthesis and characterization of new organosilicon derivatives of N(3)P(3)Cl(6), N(3)P(3)[NH(CH(2))(3)Si(OEt)(3)](6) (1), N(3)P(3)[NH(CH(2))(3)Si(OEt)(3)](3)[NCH(3)(CH(2))(3)CN](3) (2), and N(3)P(3)[NH(CH(2))(3)Si(OEt)(3)](3)[HOC(6)H(4)(CH(2))CN](3) (3) are reported. Pyrolysis of 1, 2, and 3 in air and at several temperatures results in nanostructured(More)
We present a method for the preparation and deposition of metallic microstructures and nanostructures deposited on silicon and silica surfaces by pyrolysis in air at 800 degrees C of the corresponding metallophosphazene (cyclic or polymer). Atomic force microscopy studies reveal that the morphology is dependent on the polymeric or oligomeric nature of the(More)
Pyrolysis of the silicon-containing polymer {(NP[O2C12H8])0.5[NP(OC6H4 x SiMe3)2]0.5-x [NP(OC6H5) x (OC6H4SiMe3)]x}n (1) (x = 0.13), (2) (x = 0.3), and (3) {(NP[O,2C12He])0.5[NP(OC6H4SiMe2Ph),2]0.2 [NP(OC6H5)(OC6H4SiMe2Ph)]0.3}n in air at 600 degrees C, 800 degrees C and 1000 degrees C results in the formation of nanostructured SiP,2O7, along with P4O7. The(More)
In this work we report results of continuous wave (CW) electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy of vanadium oxide nanotubes. The observed EPR spectra are composed of a weak well-resolved spectrum of isolated V(4+) ions on top of an intense and broad structure-less line shape, attributed to spin-spin exchanged V(4+) clusters. With the purpose to(More)
