ZnO nanostructures on electrospun nanofibers by atomic layer deposition/hydrothermal growth and their photocatalytic activity
(Materials Research Society, 2014)
A hierarchy of nanostructured-ZnO was fabricated on the electrospun nanofibers by atomic layer deposition (ALD) and hydrothermal growth, subsequently. Firstly, we produced poly(acrylonitrile) (PAN) nanofibers via ...
One-step synthesis of size-tunable Ag nanoparticles incorporated in electrospun PVA/cyclodextrin nanofibers
(Pergamon Press, 2014)
One-step synthesis of size-tunable silver nanoparticles (Ag-NP) incorporated into electrospun nanofibers was achieved. Initially, in situ reduction of silver salt (AgNO3) to Ag-NP was carried out in aqueous solution of ...
Antibacterial electrospun nanofibers from triclosan/cyclodextrin inclusion complexes
The electrospinning of nanofibers (NF) from cyclodextrin inclusion complexes (CD-IC) with an antibacterial agent (triclosan) was achieved without using any carrier polymeric matrix. Polymer-free triclosan/CD-IC NF were ...
Release and antibacterial activity of allyl isothiocyanate/β-cyclodextrin complex encapsulated in electrospun nanofibers
Allyl isothiocyanate (AITC) is known as an efficient antibacterial agent but it has a very high volatility. Herein, AITC and AITC/β-cyclodextrin (CD)-inclusion complex (IC) incorporated in polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) nanofibers ...
Role of zinc interstitials and oxygen vacancies of ZnO in photocatalysis: a bottom-up approach to control the defect density
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2014-06-09)
Oxygen vacancies (VOs) in ZnO are well-known to enhance photocatalytic activity (PCA) despite various other intrinsic crystal defects. In this study, we aim to elucidate the effect of zinc interstitials (Zn i) and VOs on ...
