Dispersion of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in an aqueous medium by water-dispersible conjugated polymer nanoparticles
Vertically aligned multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) synthesized by the alcohol catalytic CVD (ACCVD) technique are dispersed in water with the aid of water-dispersible conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CPNs). The ...
Toxicity of lanthanum oxide (La2O3) nanoparticles in aquatic environments
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
This study demonstrates the acute toxicity of lanthanum oxide nanoparticles (La2O3 NP) on two sentinel aquatic species, fresh-water microalgae Chlorella sp. and the crustacean Daphnia magna. The morphology, size and charge ...
White-emitting conjugated polymer nanoparticles with cross-linked shell for mechanical stability and controllable photometric properties in color-conversion LED applications
We report on the synthesis and characterization of water-dispersible, mechanically stable conjugated polymer nanoparticles (CPNs) in shelled architecture with tunable emission and controllable photometric properties via ...
Novel one-step synthesis of silica nanoparticles from sugarbeet bagasse by laser ablation and their effects on the growth of freshwater algae culture
Scientific research involving nanotechnology has grown exponentially and has led to the development of engineered nanoparticles (NPs). Silica NPs have been used in numerous scientific and technological applications over ...
Nanocomposite glass coatings containing hexagonal boron nitride nanoparticles
(Pergamon Press, 2016)
Glass coatings composed of SiO2-K2O-Li2O, containing non-modified and fluorosilane modified hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) nanoparticles, were prepared on stainless steel plates through sol-gel spin-coating method. Coatings ...
Structural superlubricity of platinum on graphite under ambient conditions: the effects of chemistry and geometry
(American Institute of Physics Inc., 2017)
An investigation of the frictional behavior of platinum nanoparticles laterally manipulated on graphite has been conducted to answer the question of whether the recent observation of structural superlubricity under ambient ...
