Synthesis and characterization of nano TiO2-SiO2: PVA composite - a novel route

A novel, simple, less time consuming and cost-effective sol–gel method has been developed to synthesize nano titania-silica with polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) composite relatively at low temperature in acidic pH. Titania sol is prepared by hydrolysis of titanium tetrachloride and was mixed with silicic acid and tetrahydrofuran mixture. The reaction was carried out under vigorous stirring ...

Nanostructured copper oxide-cotton fibers: synthesis, characterization, and applications

Copper oxide nanoparticles were prepared and subsequently deposited onto surface of the cotton fibers by ultrasonic irradiation. The structure and morphology of the coated and un-coated cottons were examined by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscopy/energy dispersive X-ray analysis. These methods revealed that of CuO nanoparticles are crystalline and corresponds to ...

Tailored hybrid hyperbranched polyglycidol-silica nanocomposites with high third-order nonlinearity

One of the most convenient techniques for optical material fabrication is the sol–gel processing. It can be performed at low temperature that enables one to entrap even relatively unstable organic substances into silica matrix at the nanometer scale, thus developing homogeneous hybrid organic–inorganic nanocomposite materials of various functionalities. Here, novel hybrid ...

Influence of temperature on AC conductivity of nanocrystalline CuAlO2

Nanocrystalline CuAlO2 was synthesized by mechanical alloying of Cu2O and α-Al2O3 powders in the molar ratio of 1:1 for 20 h in toluene medium with tungsten carbide balls and vials using planetary ball mill. The ball milling was carried out at 300 rpm with a ball to powder weight ratio of 10:1 and then annealed at 1373 K in a platinum crucible for 20 h to get CuAlO2 phase with ...

Graphene wrapped BiVO4 photocatalyst and its enhanced performance under visible light irradiation

Graphene wrapped BiVO4 (GW-BiVO4) photocatalyst is successfully synthesized via facile sol–gel method and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and transmission electron microscopy techniques. The morphology of GW-BiVO4 looks like a human embryo embedded inside the amniotic sac. The photocatalytic performance of ...

Synthesis, characterization, and photocatalytic activity of MCM-41 and MCM-48 impregnated with CeO2 nanoparticles

MCM-41/CeO2 and MCM-48/CeO2 were synthesized by direct and indirect methods in solvent media and by grinding method in a solvent-free media. The materials prepared by grinding method are characterized by X-ray diffraction, infrared spectrum analysis, and N2 adsorption and desorption. Surface areas and pore size of MCM-48/CeO2 were obtained with values of 680.9 m2·g−1 and 1.64 nm, ...

Chemical synthesis and antibacterial activity of novel-shaped silver nanoparticles

Silver nanoparticles are useful for medical applications due to their strong antibacterial activity. The antibacterial activity can be tuned by controlling the size and shape of the prepared silver nanoparticles. In this work, silver nanoparticles with different sizes and shapes were synthesized by solution phase routes, and their interactions with Escherichia coli were studied. ...
