A new discrete bis-dithiolene complex, [PPh4]2[Zn(DMED)2] (1; DMED = 1,2-dicarbomethoxy-1,2-dithiolate) with sulfur-based radical character was synthesized and structurally characterized. Complex 1 is stable and exhibits a square planar geometry around the zinc metal. 1 forms nanospheres through a one-pot water-induced self-assembly in a mixture of solvents (acetonitrile–water). These nanospheres were further decorated with water-soluble carbon nanotubes (wsCNTs) through hydrogen bonding between the peripheral –COOCH3 groups of 1 and surfacial carboxyl groups of wsCNTs to assemble into a spherical nanocomposite. The as-prepared nanocomposite showed fluorescence emissions in visible region due to the separation of energy states of the nanospheres assisted by wsCNTs, suggesting the future possibilities of these new materials for use in biomedical application.

Abstract The excellent properties of Methyl Ammonium Lead Iodide (MAPI) have already created an extensive research interest in photovoltaic applications. However, their utility in thermoelectric application is still not realized thoroughly by researchers. By continuing this interest, we have explored the formation of low dimensional CH3NH3PbI3 (MAPI) perovskite in presence of Polyaniline (PANI) and Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) and its thermoelectric performance. For this purpose, a two ...
Abstract Rubber composites were prepared for elastomer slab by mixing barium titanate (BaTiO3), carbon nanotube (CNT), carbon black (CB), and room-temperature vulcanized (RTV) silicone rubber. An electrode was prepared from composite for energy harvesting with fillers such as CB and CNT, and RTV thinner was used to improve the processing of the specimen. At 50 phr of BaTiO3, there is an increase in compressive modulus by 180%. There was a correlation between prestrain and biaxial strain in enhan...

Abstract Coordination polymers and metal–organic frameworks have attracted immense attention across different fields of science as materials with numerous functional applications. Herein, we report the use of coordination polymers obtained from near-isostructural metal (Mn2+, Fe2+, and Co2+) bipyridine complexes as electrode materials in a symmetric supercapacitor test cell. The variation in the central metal ion (Mn2+ vs. Fe2+ vs. Co2+) in these nearly identical coordination complexes was found...

Abstract Titanium production by a direct TiO2 reduction route which is highly energy-efficient and environment-friendly compared to commercial Kroll's process, known as HAMR (Hydrogen Assisted Magnesiothermic Reduction) process has been developed in recent times to meet the growing global demands of low-cost pure Ti. Removal of the Mg compounds after each reduction and de-oxygenation step in the HAMR process by leaching, is essential to ensure good purity and mechanical properties of the final T...

Abstract Construction of nanostructures on surfaces has appealed intensive attention due to its significant applications in diverse fields. Especially, engineering surface properties via surficial nanostructures is actually the creation of functional interface-based materials and slated to be the key aspect for the future of materials science. Although many efforts have been made, there are only a few reports about the construction of nanostructures on carbon nanotube film surfaces. The big chal...

The present study evaluates the role of graphene oxide’s (GO’s) peroxidase-like and inherent/carbocatalytic properties in oxidising silver nitrate (AgNO3) to create graphene nanocomposites with silver nanoparticles (GO/Ag nanocomposite). Activation of peroxidase-like catalytic function of GO required hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and ammonia (NH3) in pH 4.0 disodium hydrogen phosphate (Na2HPO4). Carbocatalytic abilities of GO were triggered in pH 4.0 deionised distilled water (ddH2O). Transmission el...

Abstract Despite the advancement in treatment processes, pathogenic bacterial contamination is very common and is a major threat to human health and safety. The limitations of modern detection technologies towards rapid detection and discrimination of bacterial pathogens and early availability of information of their antimicrobial susceptibility underpin the necessity for the continued development of novel bacterial sensors. Revolutions in nanotechnology have led to exceptional accomplishments i...

Multi-metallic alloy nanoparticles (MNPs) can offer valuable opportunities to meet the various demands of applications. MNPs consist of various noble metallic elements can combine diverse electronic, optical and catalytic properties in a single NP configuration, thus taking the advantage of each element. In this paper, the fabrication of tri- and quad- metallic alloy NPs with noble elements (Ag, Au, Pd and Pt) and the corresponding localized surface plasmon resonance (LPSR) properties are system...

Nitrogen-doped soluble graphene nanosheets (N-wsGNSs) were synthesized using lentil as a natural source of carbon and nitrogen via a simple pyrolysis and oxidation approach. The as-synthesized N-wsGNSs showed remarkable fluorescence emission over the entire visible range, attributed to the high degree of surface passivation due to the introduction of oxygenated functional groups and heteroatom doping. The significant prospect of this approach is to use N-wsGNSs as multifunctional materials for p...

Abstract The main aim of this present work is to explore the influence of dispersion of MWCNTs in a mixture of water-solar glycol (70:30) on its electrical conductivity and thermophysical properties such as density, rheology and thermal conductivity. The MWCNTs were seeded with a various weight percentage of 0.15, 0.3 and 0.45 via a common two-stage synthesis technique. The homogeneous stability of MWCNTs based nanofluids was confirmed by high-resolution scanning electron microscopy and ultravio...
