Metal nanoparticles in liquid phase catalysis; from recent advances to future goals
Zahmakiran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim (2011-01-01)
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 rout...
Metal polymer composite nanofiber production by electrospinning
Karakoç, Nihan; Gündüz, Güngör; Department of Chemical Engineering (2009)
This study aims synthesis of metal/polymer one dimensional nanostructures by micelle formation, reduction, and electrospinning route, and to analyze the morphological characteristics of composite nanofibers. The study was carried out in three main steps. First, the reverse micelle structures were established between the anionic surfactant and the metal ion. The surfactant acts as an agent to bind metal ions together so that the arrangements of metal ions can be controlled in the solution. As the surfactant ...
Metal–organic framework coated porous structures for enhanced thermoelectric performance
Günay, Ahmet Alperen; Harish, Sivasankaran; Fuchi, Masanori; Kinefuchi, Ikuya; Lee, Yaerim; Shiomi, Junichiro (2022-03-01)
Self-powered sensors/transmitters can be operated by thermoelectric generators if the temperature difference across the device is maximized. Here, we demonstrate a novel strategy to increase the overall thermoelectric conversion efficiency near room temperature (≈30 °C) through enhancement of the heat transfer between the thermoelectric generator and the atmosphere by utilizing the latent heat of atmospheric water, radiative cooling, and an enhanced surface area. To maximize the sorption and emissivity, we ...
Metal/metal laminates with controlled macrostructure: Problems and prospects
Ercan, O; Yazar, O; Soydaner, E; Ozturk, T (1997-06-06)
Prospect of producing metallic composites with controlled macrostructure via deformation processing is examined. The study combines numerical analysis(FEM) with experimental observations both made under plane strain and aims to determine conditions that would lead to macrostructure in which the reinforcements are refined with large aspect ratio and homogeneously distributed throughout the structure. The role of the inherent properties of the constituent phases and that of the geometric parameters, i.e., rel...
Metal-Enhanced Fluorescence from Silver Nanowires with High Aspect Ratio on Glass Slides for Biosensing Applications
Abel, Biebele; Coskun, Sahin; Mohammed, Muzaffer; Williams, Richard; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Aslan, Kadir (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2015-01-08)
High enhancement of fluorescence emission, improved fluorophore photostability, and significant reduction of fluorescence lifetimes have been obtained from high aspect ratio (>100) silver (Ag) nanowires. These quantities are found to depend on the surface loading of Ag nanowires on glass slides, where the enhancement of fluorescence emission increases with the density of nanowires. The surface loading dependence was attributed to the creation of intense electric fields around the network of Ag nanowires and...
