We have performed density functional calculations for the structures and stabilities of various isomers of the defect fullerene clusters of C(60): C(59), C(58), and C(57). The C(59_)5-8, C(58_)5-5-7, and C(57_)4-5-9 clusters were calculated to be the most stable isomers of the C(59), C(58), and C(57) clusters, respectively. There are obvious relationships(More)
A novel composite film was designed for use as a highly selective mediator-free amperometric biosensor, and a method was created for accomplishing direct electrochemistry of myoglobin on a multi-walled carbon nanotube and tyramine-modified composite decorated with Au nanoparticles on a glassy carbon electrode. The ultraviolet-visible and electrochemical(More)
In this study, a simple one-step hydrothermal reaction is developed to prepare composite based on Prussian blue (PB)/reduced graphene oxide foam (RGOF) for efficient removal of radioactive cesium ((137)Cs) from contaminated water. Scanning electron microscopy and transmission electron microscopy show that cubic PB nanoparticles are decorated on the RGO(More)
Enantiomeric separation of pyrethroic acid methyl and ethyl esters was examined on cellulose-based chiral stationary phases (CSPs): chiralcel OD (cellulose tris(3,5-dimethylphenyl carbamate)) and chiralcel OF (cellulose tris(4-chlorophenyl carbamate)). The good resolution of pyrethroic acid esters was achieved on chiralcel OD and OF. Separation factors(More)
By considering the qualitative benefits associated with solution rheology and mechanical properties of polymer semiconductors, it is expected that polymer-based electronic devices will soon enter our daily lives as indispensable elements in a myriad of flexible and ultra low-cost flat panel displays. Despite more than a decade of research focused on(More)
Hierarchical hollow spheres of Fe2 O3 @polyaniline are fabricated by template-free synthesis of iron oxides followed by a post in- and exterior construction. A combination of large surface area with porous structure, fast ion/electron transport, and mechanical integrity renders this material attractive as a lithium-ion anode, showing superior rate(More)
In this report, titanium nitride (TiN) nanoparticles decorated multi-walled carbon nanotube (MWCNTs) nanocomposite is fabricated via a two-step process. These two steps involve the decoration of titanium dioxide nanoparticles onto the MWCNTs surface and a subsequent thermal nitridation. Transmission electron microscopy shows that TiN nanoparticles with a(More)
Despite the exceptionally large capacities in Li ion batteries, Si has been considered inappropriate for applications in Na ion batteries. We report an atomic-level study on the applicability of a Si anode in Na ion batteries using ab initio molecular dynamics simulations. While crystalline Si is not suitable for alloying with Na atoms, amorphous Si can(More)
Spin–orbit effects on the bond lengths and dissociation energies of sixthand seventh-row p-block element monohydrides MH~M5Tl–Rn and element 113–118! are evaluated using relativistic effective core potentials at the coupled-cluster level of theory. Spin–orbit effects play a dominant role in the determination of molecular properties for the seventh-row(More)
