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 ...
Excitation dependent recombination studies on SnO2/TiO2 electrospun nanofibers
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015)
Poly(vinyl acetate) (PVAc)/TiO2 nanofibers, PVAc/SnO2 nanoribbons and PVAc/SnO2-TiO2 nanoribbons were produced via electrospinning. TiO2 nanofibers and SnO2 nanoribbons were obtained by removal of the polymeric matrix ...
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 ...
Amorphous to tetragonal zirconia anostructures and evolution of valence and core regions
(American Chemical Society, 2015)
In this report, we study the evolution of valence band (VB) structure during a controlled amorphous to tetragonal transformation of ZrO2 core-shell nanostructures fabricated from electrospun nanofiber template (at 130, ...
