V-doped TiO(2)nanoparticles were synthesized at low temperature and characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy (RS), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Brunauer-Emmet-Teller (BET), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), UV-vis spectroscopy, and photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy, respectively. It is found the nanoparticle shape(More)
TiO(2) nanocrystals with tunable bulk/surface defects were synthesized and characterized with TEM, XRD, BET, positron annihilation, and photocurrent measurements. The effect of defects on photocatalytic activity was studied. It was found for the first time that decreasing the relative concentration ratio of bulk defects to surface defects in TiO(2)(More)
Through comparing the photocatalytic performance of microscale ZnO, nano ZnO, and Degussa P25 titania (P25), it was found that the microscale ZnO exhibited 2.6-35.7 times higher photocatalytic activity for the photodegradation of various dye pollutants than P25 under both UV-visible and visible irradiation and showed much better photostability than the nano(More)
Zinc carbonate hydroxide nanobelts are prepared by the hydrolysis of zinc acetate aqueous solution in the presence of urea at 90 °C. The zinc carbonate hydroxide nanobelts can be facilely self-assembled in a circular flexible freestanding film with a diameter of 8.4 cm and thickness of ~48 μm. The calcination of the zinc carbonate hydroxide nanobelts at 300(More)
Lowering the working temperature without sacrificing other good gas-sensing properties is of particular interest to gas sensors for an excellent performance. In this work, La surface doped ZnO nanocrystals were successfully prepared by a facile thermal treatment with lanthanum nitrate (La(NO3)3) solution injected into ZnO thick films, which exhibited a(More)

Nanostructured AgI/TiO(2) photocatalyst was synthesized by a feasible approach with AgNO(3), LiI, and Ti(OBu)(4) and characterized by X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, angle-dependent X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, diffusive reflectance UV-vis spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, photoluminescence, and the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller(More)
The octahedral layered birnessite-type manganese oxide (OL-1) with the morphologies of nanoflowers, nanowires, and nanosheets were prepared and characterized with X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), thermogravimetric/differential scanning calorimetry (TG/DSC), Brunnauer-Emmett-Teller (BET),(More)
Anatase TiO2 nanocrystals with internal pores are prepared by a novel facile microwave-assisted hydrolysis of a mixture of TiOCl2 and HF aqueous solutions, followed by calcination at 400 °C. The TiO2 nanocrystals with internal pores are characterized by XRD, TEM, SEM, BET, EDS, and XPS. The formation mechanism of the TiO2 nanocrystals with internal pores is(More)
The polymeric adsorption of methylene blue (MB) on a TiO(2) surface is reported. The MB molecule on the TiO(2) surface mainly exists as the H-trimeric adsorption state, which results in the MB@TiO(2) polymeric sol. The trimeric adsorption leads to a remarkable "blueshift" of visible-light adsorption of MB. Electrostatic attraction is important for trimeric(More)
In this work, we present one-step low temperature hydrothermal synthesis of submicrometer particulate CuAlO2 and AgAlO2 delafossite oxides, which are two important p-type transparent conducting oxides. The synthesis parameters that affect the crystal formation processes and the product morphologies, including the selection of starting materials and their(More)
