  • Multivalent cation crosslinking suppresses highly energetic graphene oxide’s flammability 

    Turgut, Hulusi; Tian, Z. Ryan; Yu, Fengjiao; Zhou, Wuzong (2017-03-16) - Journal article
    Graphene oxide (GO), a common intermediate for making graphene-like materials from graphite, was recently found to possess an explosive fire-hazard that can jeopardize the GO’s large-scale production and wide applications. ...
  • Wet chemical synthesis and characterisation of Ba0.5Sr0.5Ce0.6Zr0.2Gd0.1Y0.1O3 − δ proton conductor 

    Naeem Khan, M.; Savaniu, C. D.; Azad, A. K.; Hing, Peter; Irvine, J. T. S. (2017-05) - Journal article
    Ba0.5Sr0.5Ce0.6Zr0.2Gd0.1Y0.1O3 − δ (BSCZGY) proton conducting electrolyte material for intermediate temperature solid oxide fuel cells (IT-SOFCs) has been synthesized by a sol-gel modified Pechini process and its ...
  • Chlorine-enabled electron doping in solution-synthesized SnSe thermoelectric nanomaterials 

    Han, Guang; Popuri, Srinivas R.; Greer, Heather F.; Llin, Lourdes F.; Bos, Jan-Willem G.; Zhou, Wuzong; Paul, Douglas J.; Ménard, Hervé; Knox, Andrew R.; Montecucco, Andrea; Siviter, Jonathan; Man, Elena A.; Li, Wen-guang; Paul, Manosh C.; Gao, Min; Sweet, Tracy; Freer, Robert; Azough, Feridoon; Baig, Hasan; Mallik, Tapas K.; Gregory, Duncan H. (2017-07-05) - Journal article
    An aqueous solution method is developed for the facile synthesis of Cl-containing SnSe nanoparticles in 10 g quantities per batch. The particle size and Cl concentration of the nanoparticles can be efficiently tuned as a ...
  • Structural study of the coordination behavior of a tetradentate NO3-donor amino alcohol ligand toward a CdII:HgII mixture 

    Mardani, Zahra; Golsanamlou, Vali; Khodavandegar, Saba; Moeini, Keyvan; Slawin, Alexandra M. Z.; Woollins, J. Derek (2017-05-01) - Journal article
    In this work, the reaction of 2,2′,2″-nitrilotriethanol (NTE) with a 1:1 mixture of CdI2 and HgI2 is investigated. The complex [Cd(NTE)2][Hg2(μ-I)2I4] was synthesized and identified by elemental analysis, FT-IR, 1H NMR ...
  • An unusual flavin-dependent halogenase from the metagenome of the marine sponge Theonella swinhoei WA 

    Smith, Duncan R. M.; Uria, Agustinus R.; Helfrich, Eric J. N.; Milbredt, Daniela; van Pée, Karl-Heinz; Piel, Jörn; Goss, Rebecca J. M. (2017-05-19) - Journal article
    Uncultured bacteria from sponges have been demonstrated to be responsible for the generation of many potent, bioactive natural products including halogenated metabolites.1 The identification of gene clusters from the ...
