HNO?-assisted polyol synthesis of ultralarge single-crystalline Ag microplates and their far propagation length of surface plasmon polariton.
ACS Appl Mater Interfaces
PUBLISHED: 07-14-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
We developed a HNO3-assisted polyol reduction method to synthesize ultralarge single-crystalline Ag microplates routinely. The edge length of the synthesized Ag microplates reaches 50 ?m, and their top facets are (111). The mechanism for dramatically enlarging single-crystalline Ag structure stems from a series of competitive anisotropic growths, primarily governed by carefully tuning the adsorption of Ag(0) by ethylene glycol and the desorption of Ag(0) by a cyanide ion on Ag(100). Finally, we measured the propagation length of surface plasmon polaritons along the air/Ag interface under 534 nm laser excitation. Our single-crystalline Ag microplate exhibited a propagation length (11.22 ?m) considerably greater than that of the conventional E-gun deposited Ag thin film (5.27 ?m).

Toward highly efficient photocatalysis: a flow-through Pt@TiO?@AAO membrane nanoreactor prepared by atomic layer deposition.
Chem. Commun. (Camb.)

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
A Pt@TiO2@AAO membrane nanoreactor was fabricated by atomic layer deposition. The photodegradation test of methylene blue demonstrated that the nanoreactor shows efficient photocatalysis performance. It exhibited ~28% photodegradation of methylene blue after ten flow-through cycles, corresponding to about 2.7 × 10(-2) s of contact time of methylene blue with Pt@TiO2 nanotubes.

Hide Abstract
The formation of TiO(2) nanotubes was conducted by atomic layer deposition (ALD) with tris-(8-hydroxyquinoline) gallium (GaQ(3)) nanowires as a template at different substrate temperatures, 50, 100, and 200?°C. TiO(2) nanotubes were formed only at 50 and 100?°C. Although a higher growth rate at 50?°C was observed, nanotubes with better uniformity, conformality, and less residual chloride were obtained at 100?°C because of a different formation mechanism. A photocatalysis test of TiO(2) nanotubes prepared by different cycle numbers at 100?°C was conducted. It showed that TiO(2) nanotubes prepared by 400 cycles of ALD and treated at 700?°C for 1 h to form anatase phase had the best photocatalytic performance. Compared with P-25, the nanotubes showed higher photocatalytic degradation of rhodamine B and water splitting efficiency.

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Rutile TiO2 nanowires anchored on silica were fabricated by annealing TiO2 nanoparticles dispersed on silicon or quartz substrate by means of a polystyrene nanosphere monolayer template at 1000 degrees C for 1 h without any catalyst. The diameter and length of the nanowires were 30-80 nm and 1-3 microm, respectively. The growth direction of the nanowires is [112]. The photocatalytic activities of TiO2 nanoparticles and anchored nanowires were evaluated. TiO2 nanowires had higher photocatalytic activity for rhodamine B than TiO2 nanoparticles.

Hide Abstract
TiO(2) nanowires were fabricated by annealing TiO(2) nanoparticles on silicon substrate at 1000 degrees C in air. When a polystyrene nanosphere monolayer was used as a template to separate the TiO(2) nanoparticles, they could more easily react with the silicon substrate to form Ti(5)Si(3). The TiO(2) nanowires were formed upon further oxidation of Ti(5)Si(3). The diameters and lengths of TiO(2) nanowires were 30-80 nm and 1-3 microm, respectively. The nanowires had a rutile structure with the growth direction [112]. It is believed that the formation of TiO(2) nanowires involved a precipitation process in the mixture of SiO(2) and TiO(2). The nanowires show different photoluminescence behavior from that of the powder.

Crystalline Gaq(3) Nanostructures: Preparation, Thermal Property and Spectroscopy Characterization.
Nanoscale Res Lett
PUBLISHED: 02-25-2009
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Crystalline Gaq(3) 1-D nanostructures and nanospheres could be fabricated by thermal evaporation under cold trap. The influences of the key process parameters on formation of the nanostructures were also investigated. It has been demonstrated that the morphology and dimension of the nanostructures were mainly controlled by working temperature and working pressure. One-dimensional nanostructures were fabricated at a lower working temperature, whereas nanospheres were formed at a higher working temperature. Larger nanospheres could be obtained when a higher working pressure was applied. The XRD, FTIR, and NMR analyses evidenced that the nanostructures mainly consisted of delta-phase Gaq(3). Their DSC trace revealed two small exothermic peaks in addition to the melting endotherm. The one in lower temperature region was ascribed to a transition from delta to beta phase, while another in higher temperature region could be identified as a transition from beta to delta phase. All the crystalline nanostructures show similar PL spectra due to absence of quantum confinement effect. They also exhibited a spectral blue shift because of a looser interligand spacing and reduced orbital overlap in their delta-phase molecular structures.

Deposition of platinum on oxygen plasma treated carbon nanotubes by atomic layer deposition.
Nanotechnology
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Platinum nanoparticles were deposited on oxygen plasma treated carbon nanotubes (CNTs) by atomic layer deposition (ALD). The treatment time with oxygen plasma generated by microwaves under a power of 600 W varied from 5 to 20 s. The number of ALD cycles was controlled at 5-125. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopic analysis indicated that oxygen plasma can graft oxygen-containing functional groups to the CNT surface to act as nucleation sites for growth of Pt nanoparticles. Formation of very uniform and well distributed Pt nanoparticles of a size of 1.60-4.80 nm was achieved. The growth rate of Pt nanoparticles could be controlled by the number of ALD cycles and oxygen plasma treatment time. This offers a dry process to deposit well-dispersed metallic nanoparticles on selected support materials.

Preparation and characterization of molecularly homogeneous silica-titania film by sol-gel process with different synthetic strategies.
ACS Appl Mater Interfaces
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Three silica-titania thin films with various degrees of molecular homogeneity were synthesized by the sol-gel process with the same precursor formula but different reaction paths. The dried films prepared by a single spin-coating process have a thickness of 500-700 nm and displayed no cracks or pin holes. The transmittances and refractive indices of the samples are >97.8% in the range of 350-1800 nm and 1.62-1.65 at 500 nm, respectively. The in-plane and out-of-plane chemical homogeneities of the films were analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Auger electron spectroscopy, respectively. For the film with the highest degree of homogeneity, the deviations of O, Si, and Ti atomic contents in both in-plane and out-of-plane directions are less than 1.5%, indicating that the film is highly molecularly homogeneous. It also possesses the highest transparency and the lowest refractive index among the three samples.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
