A facile chemical synthesis of CuxNi(1−x)Fe2O4 nanoparticles as a nonprecious ferrite material for electrocatalytic oxidation of acetaldehyde
In the present work, Cu-doped nickel ferrite (CuxNi(1−x)Fe2O4) nanoparticles (CuNFNPs) were chemically fabricated by adding citric acid as a capping agent followed by combustion and calcination for acetaldehyde oxidation reaction (AOR) in KOH electrolytes. The as-prepared CuNFNPs were studied in terms of Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), Field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM), Energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), ...

Incorporating zirconia nanoparticles into activated carbon as electrode material for capacitive deionization
In recent years, capacitive deionization (CDI) has attracted intensive research due to its environmentally-friendly nature and low power requirement. Although the characteristics of titania (TiO2) and zirconia (ZrO2) are almost the same, ZrO2 has not attracted the same attention since the characteristics of the carbonaceous material need to be modified to enhance its performance as an electrode in CDI cells. ...

A Multifunctional Zinc Oxide/Poly(Lactic Acid) Nanocomposite Layer Coated on Magnesium Alloys for Controlled Degradation and Antibacterial Function
ABSTRACT: In the present work, magnesium (Mg) AZ31 alloy was coated with a multifunctional membrane layer composed of ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) embedded in a poly(lactic acid) (PLA) matrix. We aimed to produce a stable coating that would be used to control the degradation rate of the Mg alloy and promote a local antibacterial activity. ZnO NPs were dispersed at 5 ... Read more

Facile synthesis of TiO2/ZrO2 nanofbers/nitrogen co-doped activated carbon to enhance  the  desalination  and  bacterial  inactivation  via  capacitive  deionization
Capacitive deionization, as a second generation electrosorption technique to obtain water, is one of the most promising water desalination technologies. Yet; in order to achieve high CDI performance, a well-designed structure of the electrode materials is needed, and is in high demand. Here, a novel composite nitrogen-TiO2/ZrO2 nanofibers incorporated activated carbon (NACTZ) is synthesized for the first time with enhanced ... Read more

Electrocatalytic behavior of a nanocomposite of Ni/Pd supported by carbonized PVA nanofibers towards formic acid, ethanol and urea oxidation: A physicochemical and electro-analysis study
A nanocomposite of Ni/Pd supported by carbonized poly-vinyl alcohol (PVA) nanofibers (NFs) was synthesized via electrospinning followed by calcination under an argon atmosphere. The as-synthesized NFs were studied using physicochemical analyses, such as field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), Transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), to investigate the morphology, crystallinity, ...

Design of novel electrode for capacitive deionization using electrospun composite titania/zirconia nanofibers doped-activated carbon
Well-dispersed TiO2/ZrO2 nanofibers-doped activated carbon (AC/TiZr) were successfully synthesized as an electrode for the capacitive deionization (CDI) technique via electrospinning that was followed by a hydrothermal treatment. SEM, TEM, XRD, XPS and EDX measurements were employed to characterize the morphology, crystal structure and chemistry composition of the as-synthesized material. The electrochemical performance of the AC/TiZr nanocomposite modified electrode was measured ... Read more

Facile synthesis of GO@SnO2/TiO2 nanofibers and their behavior in photovoltaics
Chemical doping is a widely-used strategy to improve the performance of TiO2 for the dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). However, the effect of two efficient dopants has been rarely investigated. We present the synthesis of GO@SnO2/TiO2nanofibers (NFs) by a facile method using electrospinning and hydrothermal processes. The synthesized NFs are described in terms of morphology, crystallinity and chemistry through FESEM, TEM, ... Read more

This study presents the combination of N, graphene oxide (GO) and SnO2 as efficient dopants into TiO2 nanofibers (NFs) photoanode substrate for highly efficient dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs). The developed NFs are synthesized by electrospinning and hydrothermal processes and characterized by FESEM, TEM, XPS, FT-IR, Raman and EDX-studies.

This work focuses on systematic studies of dissolution engineering for Pt0.9M0.1/graphene (M = Au, Co, Cu, Fe, Mo, Ni, Pd, Ru, and Sn) counter electrodes (CEs). The developed nanohybrid materials exhibit higher catalytic activity and electrical conductivity compared with those of Pt/graphene CEs.

Fabrication of N-doped &SnO2-incorporated activated carbon to enhance desalination and bio-decontamination performance for capacitive deionization
Herein, nitrogen-doped tin oxide intercalated activated carbon nanocomposite (N-AC/SnO2) were prepared using hydrothermal strategy and explored as an electrode for capacitive desalination and disinfection. Although tin oxide (SnO2) has good characteristics, the nitrogen must be carefully considered for modifying the characteristics of the carbonaceous materials to improve the performance as an electrode in the CDI process. The characterization of the ... Read more
