Synergetic effect of metal-organic framework UiO-66 and silver plasmonic nanoparticles on PET waste support in degradation of nerve agent simulant
The combination of versatile metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) with high porosity and catalytic activity with plasmonic nanoparticles (PNPs) defines a new paradigm in photocatalytic degradation of
Facile Synthesis of Metal-Organic Layers with High Catalytic Performance toward Detoxification of a Chemical Warfare Agent Simulant.
A facile bottom-up method for synthesizing MOLs with microwave assistance is applied and a first demonstration for the application of 2D metal coordination materials in CWA protection is provided.
Superelastic and Photothermal RGO/Zr-Doped TiO2 Nanofibrous Aerogels Enable the Rapid Decomposition of Chemical Warfare Agents.
To date, the reckless use of deadly chemical warfare agents (CWAs) has posed serious risks to humanity, property, and ecological environment. Therefore, necessary materials able to rapidly adsorb and
Bulk and surface theoretical investigation of Nb-doped δ-FeOOH as a promising bifunctional catalyst
Evidence has been found that the insertion of Nb increases Brönsted acidity and gives rise to new Lewis acid sites on the catalyst surface and the formation of stronger van der Waals interactions among the doped δ-FeOOH layers, which can increase the thermal stability of the catalyst.
Transitioning from Oxime to the Next Potential Organophosphorus Poisoning Therapy Using Enzymes
The restrictions and obstacles in the therapeutic development of oximes, along with the new strategies to overcome the problems, are discussed and the emerging interest in enzyme treatment with its advantages and disadvantages is described.


Simple and compelling biomimetic metal-organic framework catalyst for the degradation of nerve agent simulants.
The combination of the strong Lewis-acidic Zr(IV) and bridging hydroxide anions led to ultrafast half-lives for these solvolysis reactions, especially remarkable considering that the actual catalyst loading was a mere 0.045 % as a result of the surface-only catalysis observed.
Fabrication of Anisotropic Silver Nanoplatelets on the Surface of TiO2 Fibers for Enhanced Photocatalysis of a Chemical Warfare Agent Simulant, Methyl Paraoxon
Among the world’s most deadly toxins are a class of organophosphates that are used as chemical warfare agents (CWAs). It is imperative to continue to develop novel means for mitigation and protection
Undesired Role of Sacrificial Reagents in Photocatalysis
O of the most important limitations of the application of photocatalysis for water decomposition is that the process employing pure water is usually rather inefficient or is not even operative at
