Olivines are divalent orthosilicates with important geologic, biological, and industrial significance and are typically comprised of mixtures of Mg2+ and Fe2+ ranging from forsterite (Mg2SiO4) to fayalite (Fe2SiO4). Investigating the role of Fe(II) in olivine reactivity requires the ability to synthesize olivines that are nanometer-sized, have different percentages of Mg2+ and Fe2+, and have good bulk and surface purity. This article demonstrates a new method for synthesizing nanosized fayalite and Mg-Fe mixture olivines...

HYPOTHESIS: Subjecting colloids to electric fields often results in (electrophoretic) deposition on conductive substrates. Dispersing a single-source precursor (SSP) of choice in an appropriate solvent, should allow its deposition on different substrates. The SSP-solvent interaction might play a role in the deposition (e.g., direction, rate, coverage). After thermal decomposition, the SSPs convert to the designed material, thus allowing formation of thin films or hybrid nanostructures...

In situ pegylated (PEGylated) microporous membranes have been extensively reported using poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG)-based polymers as blending additives. Alternatively, free standing PEGylated polysulfone (PSf) membranes with excellent hydrophilicity and antifouling ability were directly fabricated from polysulfone/poly(ethylene glycol) methyl ether methacrylate (PSf/PEGMA) solutions after in situ cross-linking polymerization without any treatment via vapor induced phase separation (VIPS) process for the first time...

An efficient and non-precious metal catalyst is a key factor for hydrogen evolution reaction (HER). Here we report that the fabrication of highly ordered porous arrays of Cu-Zn-Ni alloy has been carried out in a one-step electrochemical route at a constant apparent current density of -3 A·cm-2. The optimum film composition and reactivity of the electrodes for catalytic hydrogen evolution reaction were analyzed by using different current densities, deposition time and bath concentration. For this purpose, onset potentials in linear sweep voltammograms (LSV) were compared...

Palladium nanoparticles decorated reduced graphene oxide (Pd-rGO) and palladium nanoparticles intercalated inside nitrogen doped reduced graphene oxide (Pd-NrGO) hybrids have been synthesized by applying a very simple, fast and economic route using microwave-assisted in-situ reduction and exfoliation method. The Pd-NrGO hybrids materials show good activity as catalyst for ethanol electro oxidation for direct ethanol fuel cells (DEFCs) as compared to Pd-rGO hybrids. The enhanced direct ethanol fuel cell can serve as alternative to fossil fuels because it is renewable and environmentally-friendly with a high energy conversion efficiency and low pollutant emission...

HYPOTHESIS: It is known that additives like glycerol and sucrose lead to the swelling of aqueous bilayer Lα phases. The swelling of the Lα phases can be explained by the increase of the refractive index of the mixed solvent, which lowers the van der Waals attraction between the bilayers. Afterwards, the undulation forces between the bilayers can push them apart. This hypothesis was previously extended to wormlike micelles (WLM) of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium salicylate (NaSal)...

Trimellitated-sugarcane bagasse (STA) was used as an environmentally friendly adsorbent for removal of the basic dyes auramine-O (AO) and safranin-T (ST) from aqueous solutions at pH 4.5 and 7.0. Dye adsorption was evaluated as a function of STA dosage, agitation speed, solution pH, contact time, and initial dye concentration. Pseudo-first- and pseudo-second-order, Elovich, intraparticle diffusion, and Boyd models were used to model adsorption kinetics. Langmuir, Dubinin-Radushkevich, Redlich-Peterson, Sips, Hill-de Boer, and Fowler-Guggenheim models were used to model adsorption isotherms, while a Scatchard plot was used to evaluate the existence of different adsorption sites...

MnO2 and Mn3O4 particles were prepared by wet chemical methods and efficiently dispersed and mixed with multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNT) for the fabrication of composite MnO2-MWCNT and Mn3O4-MWCNT electrodes for electrochemical supercapacitors (ES). The problem of particle agglomeration was addressed by particle extraction through a liquid-liquid interface (PELLI) using octanohydroxamic acid (OHA) as a new extractor. OHA exhibited remarkable adsorption on particles due to a bidentate bonding mechanism. The use of OHA broadened the application of PELLI technology, because it allowed good extraction of particles from an aqueous phase at high pH...

Ag6Si2O7, a visible light-driven photocatalyst, has attracted considerable attention owing to its enormous environmental remediation potential. In this work, a magnetic iron(II,III) oxide/titania/silver silicate (Fe3O4/TiO2/Ag6Si2O7) nanocomposite was synthesized by anchoring TiO2 and Ag6Si2O7 on the surface of Fe3O4 nanoparticles. The morphology, crystal structure, as well as the spectroscopic, magnetic, and photocurrent properties of the as-prepared Fe3O4/TiO2/Ag6Si2O7 nanocomposite were studied. Methylene blue (MB) was used for evaluating the photocatalytic performance under simulated visible light...

We use activated carbon (AC) and titanium oxide (TiO2) nanomaterials as the additives to prepare four polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) based ultrafiltration membranes by nonsolvent induced phase separation. The surface properties (pore size, porosity, hydrophilicity and roughness) of the membranes are characterized by scanning electron microscopy, water contact angle measurement, and atomic force microscopy. The chemical properties of the membranes are evaluated by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy with attenuated total reflection and X-ray diffraction...

Here, we report a facile salt-assisted direct liquid-phase exfoliation method for mass production of MoS2 nanosheets. We choose organic solvent isopropanol (IPA) as exfoliation media and potassium ferrocyanide, potassium sodium tartrate, or sodium tartrate as salt, the assistant. The selected salts show universal and efficient assistant effect for the exfoliation of MoS2 in IPA. Especially, potassium ferrocyanide (K4Fe(CN)6) can enhance the exfoliation efficiency up to 73 times and a dispersion of MoS2 nanosheets with concentration as high as 0...

A novel antifouling coating based on the polymerization of a polymerisable bicontinuous microemulsion (PBM) was developed and applied for commercially available membranes for textile wastewater treatment. PBM coating was produced by polymerizing, on a polyethersulfone (PES) membrane, a bicontinuous microemulsion, realized by finely tuning its properties in terms of chemical composition and polymerization temperature. In particular, the PBM was prepared by using, as the surfactant component, inexpensive and commercially available dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB)...

Ternary blend (TB) strategy has been considered as an effective method to enhance the photovoltaic performance of bulk heterojunction (BHJ) polymer solar cells (PSCs). Here, we report on TB-based PSCs containing two donor materials; poly-3-hexylthiophene (P3HT) and Rhodamine B (RhB) laser organic dye, and [6,6]-phenyl C61 butyric acid methyl ester (PC61BM) as an acceptor. The influence of RhB weight percentage and injection volume was extensively studied. To gain insight into the influences of RhB on the photovoltaic performance of PSCs, physicochemical and optical properties of TBs were compared with those of BHJ binary blend as a standard...

Dermal defects caused by trauma or disease are challenging to treat due to difficult-to-treat infections that impair wound healing. Due to the widespread emergence of drug-resistant bacteria and dwindling discoveries of new antibiotics, there is currently an urgent need to introduce novel antimicrobials effective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria without causing damage to host tissues. As selenium (Se) and silver (Ag) are known for their antimicrobial properties, we investigated the separate loading of these materials into porous chitosan/PVA (CS) scaffolds through a simple in situ deposition method to create two distinct wound dressing materials (CS-Se and CS-Ag)...

#15
Qingwen Dai, Wei Huang, Xiaolei Wang
Thermocapillary migration describes a phenomenon where a liquid droplet spreads from warm to cold regions due to the interfacial tension gradients. Since the contact angle hysteresis effect is involved during the migration process, we consider the hysteresis effect and rectify the theoretical model to predict the migration velocity on solid surfaces. By conducting migration experiments on surfaces with different magnitudes of the hysteresis effect, we verify the validity of the theoretical derivation. This study advances the understanding of the interfacial phenomenon of thermocapillary migration, moreover, offers an insight into the migration capacity of different materials and guides the design of key components associated with the thermal gradients...

Ternary CoFeNi-layered double hydroxide (CoFeNi-LDH) was synthesized and initially applied to activate peroxymonosulfate (PMS) for the degradation of Congo red (CR) and Rhodamine B (RhB). The results show that the CoFeNi-LDH/PMS system can efficiently degrade nearly 100% of 20 mg/L CR or 20 mg/L RhB within 6- and 10-min reaction times, respectively. And the catalyst exhibits higher degradation efficiency on CR than on RhB under identical conditions, which is confirmed by electron clouds of the highest occupied molecular orbital (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbital (LUMO) performed by DFT calculations...

HYPOTHESIS: Surfactant-free emulsion polymerization has become favorable due to circumventing instability issues reasonably. Incorporation of an appropriate hydrophilic macroRAFT, could provide controlled in-situ self-assembly via copolymerization with hydrophobic monomers into polymer particles. So far, this approach has mostly been studied in dispersion systems and further studies are needed in emulsions. Beside the corresponding mechanistic studies, the prepared latex particles would potentially exhibit smart behaviors by choosing stimuli-responsive monomers...
