Presence of Li Clusters in Molten LiCl-Li
Molten mixtures of lithium chloride and metallic lithium are of significant interest in various metal oxide reduction processes. These solutions have been reported to exhibit seemingly anomalous physical characteristics ...
Effect of porosity and carbon composition on pore microstructure of magnesium/carbon nanotube composite foams
Three-dimensional (3D) pore microstructure was investigated for six types of carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced magnesium (Mg) composite foams with various porosities (i.e. 29%, 39%, and 49%) and compositions (0.05 wt.% CNT ...
Enhanced Performance of beta-Bi2O3 by In-Situ Photo-Conversion to Bi2O3-BiO2-x Composite Photoanode for Solar Water Splitting
Ordered nanoporous bismuth oxide layer consisting of metastable beta-Bi2O3 phase that showed n-type semiconductivity was synthesized by a simple electrochemical anodization of bismuth substrate. When the anodic nanoporous ...
New ground-state crystal structure of elemental boron
(American Physical Society, 2016)
Elemental boron exhibits many polymorphs in nature based mostly on an icosahedral shell motif, involving stabilization of 13 strong multicenter intraicosahedral bonds. It is commonly accepted that the most thermodynamic ...
Formation of polyelectrolyte multilayers: ionic strengths and growth regimes
This article presents a study of layer-by-layer (LbL) formation of poly-electrolyte multilayers (PEMs). Upon increasing ionic strength LbL growth patterns vary from linear for the lowest salt concentrations ([NaCl] = 0, ...
Nucleation of amorphous shear bands at nanotwins in boron suboxide
(Nature Research, 2016)
The roles of grain boundaries and twin boundaries in mechanical properties are well understood for metals and alloys. However, for covalent solids, their roles in deformation response to applied stress are not established. ...
Hydrogen Induced Abrupt Structural Expansion at High Temperatures of a Ni32Nb28Zr30Cu10 Membrane for H-2 Purification
Ni-Nb-Zr amorphous membranes, prepared by melt-spinning, show great potential for replacing crystalline Pd-based materials in the field of hydrogen purification to an ultrapure grade (>99.999%). In this study, we investigate ...
Mixed anionic surfactant-templated mesoporous silica nanoparticles for fluorescence detection of Fe3+
This work demonstrates a novel method for the synthesis of large pore mesoporous silica nanoparticles (MSNs) with a pore diameter of 10.3 nm and a particle diameter of similar to 50 nm based on the incorporation of mixed ...
Hydrothermal carbonization of glucose in saline solution: sequestration of nutrients on carbonaceous materials
In this study, feasibility of selected nutrient sequestration during hydrothermal carbonization (HTC) was tested for three different HTC temperatures (180, 230, and 300 degrees C). To study the nutrient sequestration in ...
