Batch and flow reactors are two most common production methods employed widely in various chemical industries. The main advantage of flow reaction systems over batch reactors is the continuous production capability. Besides, particularly for the [...]
Electronics and sensors pervade all aspects of life, needing solutions to make them less obtrusive, which is where fully transparent electronics come into play. Our research focus has been to realise stretchable electronic devices with [...]
In our experiment, it was observed that silicon nanocrystal rapidly grows with radiation of electron beam on amorphous silicon film prepared by pulsed laser deposition, and shape of silicon nanocrystal is usually sphere in smaller [...]
The objective of this research is to fabricate, beginning with screen printing, electrically conductive glass nanocomposite films and optimize their properties. By discovering an optimum thickness and nanoparticle spacing within the glass matrix, we may [...]
Abstract: Platinum group metals (PGM: Pd, Pt, Ir, Rh, etc) are commonly used in catalysis. Conventional catalysts typically consist of PGM nanoparticles dispersed on high surface area oxide supports. However, high PGM loadings must be [...]

Recently, nanoporous gold has been pointed out as a promising candidate for the development of SERS-based sensors for the detection of environmental toxins and small molecules . One way to improve the detection ability of [...]
Alumina is chemically stable and excellent in hardness, heat resistance, and mechanical properties. That is the reason alumina is widely used as a structural material, an abrasive grain and a cutting tool. In general, alumina [...]
Polymer nanocomposites are composed of a nanofiller, such as nanoclay, carbon nanotubes, graphene, and nanosilver, in a polymer matrix. Depending on the choice of filler, these nanocomposites exhibit unique material properties, including improved barrier properties, [...]

Layered double hydroxides (LDHs), also known as hydrotalcites or anionic clays having a brucite-like structure are a class of host-guest materials, which can be described by the formula [M2+1-xM3+x(OH)2]x+(An-)x/n•mH2O where M2+ and M3+ are divalent [...]
In this study electrospun PVA nanofibres were functionalized with Fe-MOFs to synthesise a novel super adsorbing material. The synthesized material was characterized by scanning electron microscope (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). [...]
In the recent past, Titanium dioxide (TiO2), polyoxometalates (POMs) and silver (Ag) based nanomaterials have been employed for various biological and industrial applications. TiO2 possesses excellent photocatalytic activity; POMs are keggin ions with exceptional biomedical [...]
At present, most metal 3D printing applications involve deposited metal powder sintering or melting under the influence of an external energy source such as a laser (e.g. Selective Laser Sintering (SLS)  and Direct Metal [...]
We present the first nano- and microfabrication of vacuum microelectronic components incorporating lanthanum hexaboride (LaB6), a refractory low work function material with high electron emissivity. We design novel fabrication processes which yield ultra-low fill factor [...]
We present here ultraviolet A (UVA) light controlled photocatalytic activity of roll-to-roll (R2R) deposited TiO2 nanoparticles on paper, board, and plastic films both for controlled wetting and oxygen sensors for modified atmosphere packages (MAPs). It [...]
Silicon carbide is a wide band-gap semiconductor material with many superior properties, such as high electron mobility, high thermal conductivity, high mechanical strength, and high radiation resistance. These superior properties make SiC an excellent material [...]
