Metal nanoparticles have attracted much attention over the last decade owing to their unique properties, different to their bulk counterparts, which pave the way for their application in different fields from materials science and engineering to biomedical applications. Of particular interest, the use of metal nanoparticles in catalysis has brought superior efficiency in terms of activity, selectivity and lifetime to heterogeneous catalysis. This article reviews the recent developments in the synthesis routes and the catalytic performance of metal nanoparticles depending on the solvent used for various organic and inorganic transformations. Additionally, we also discuss the prevalent complications and their possible solutions plus future prospects in the field of nanocatalysis.

Structural vibration analysis of single walled carbon nanotubes with atom-vacancies
Doğan, İbrahim Onur; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2010)
Recent investigations in nanotechnology show that carbon nanotubes (CNT) have one of the most significant mechanical, electrical and optical properties. Interactions between those areas like electrical, optical and mechanical properties are also very promising in both research and industrial fields. Those unique characteristics are built by mainly the atomistic structure of the carbon nanotubes. In this thesis, the effects of vacant atoms on single walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNT) are investigated using matr...
Structural Vibration Analysis of Single Walled Carbon Nanotubes with Atom Vacancies
Dogan, Ibrahim Onur; Yazıcıoğlu, Yiğit (2014-11-01)
Recent investigations in nanotechnology show that carbon nanotubes have significant mechanical, electrical and optical properties. Interactions between those are also promising in both research and industrial fields. Those unique characteristics are mainly due to the atomistic structure of carbon nanotubes. In this paper, the structural effects of vacant atoms on single walled carbon nanotubes are investigated using matrix stiffness method. In order to use this technique, a linkage between structural mechan...
METAL-ORGANIC FRAMEWORKS (MOFs): SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION, AND POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS
KHAN, SAEED AHMAD; Akata Kurç, Burcu; Department of Micro and Nanotechnology (2022-8-22)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are an emerging class of crystalline porous materials that consist of metal clusters (nodes) connected by organic linkers (struts) to form a three-dimensional molecular framework. MOFs have attracted considerable attention in recent years owing to their exceptional properties. Due to their remarkable design flexibility, ultra-high porosity, large specific surface area, and tunable chemistry, MOFs are indispensable for potential applications in clean energy, gas adsorption, an...

Bonyi, Enock; Kukoyi, Zeenat; Daodu, Oluseyi; Boone-Kukoyi, Zainab; COŞKUN, Sahin; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Asian, Kadir (Elsevier BV, 2017-06-01)
Physical stability of metal nanoparticle films on planar surfaces can be increased by employing surface modification techniques and/or type of metal nanoparticles. Subsequently, the enzymatic response of colorimetric bioassays can be increased for improved dynamic range for the detection of biomolecules. Using a model bioassay b-BSA, three planar platforms (1) poly (methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) with silver thin films (STFs), (2) silver nanowires (Ag NWs) on paper and (3) indium tin oxide (ITO) on polyethylen...
