Dye-adsorption-induced gelation of suspensions of spherical and rodlike zinc oxide nanoparticles in organic solvents.

Abstract

The adsorption of amphiphilic Ru(II) complex Z907 onto the surface of ZnO nanospheres and nanorods causes the gelation of organic solvents, such as THF and acetone. The gels are thermally stable at very low concentration (nanoparticle volume fraction phi = 0.009) but mechanically fragile, with the behavior being dependent on the nature of the solvent… (More)
