Research was undertaken into the organic semiconductors tris(8- hydroxyquinoline)aluminum (Alq3) as well as bis(8-hydroxyquinoline)zinc (Znq2) to the effect of improving achievable morphological control using an inexpensive evaporation based solution synthesis method. By varying experimental...
Highly Ordered Methanofullerene Nanotube Array: Fabrication and Implications for Room Temperature Organic SpintronicsDownload
Organic semiconductors have come to the forefront of research in physics, chemistry and electronics due to their impressive properties and low cost of device production. Presented here is a novel centrifuge assisted organic nanowire growth technique and its application in the fabrication of...
Supramolecular rosette nanotubes (RNTs) are obtained by the hierarchical self-assembly of mono and twin G^C building blocks. The mono G^C motif is a fused bicyclic ring of guanine and cytosine with six self-complementary sets of hydrogen bonding sites, while the twin G^C motif is a covalently...
Surface modification of zirconium implants via electrochemical anodization and wet chemical techniquesDownload
Metals such as titanium (Ti) and zirconium (Zr) have been widely applied in the orthopaedic and orthodontic field for construction of joint replacement prostheses and teeth implants due to their lower cytotoxicity, excellent mechanical properties, and corrosion resistance. However, the current...
Synthesis and Characterization of TiO2 Nanowire and Nanotube Arrays for Increased Optoelectronic FunctionalityDownload
The n-type semiconducting, vertically oriented TiO2 nanotube and nanowire arrays constitute a mechanically robust, high surface area, easily functionalized architecture with vectorial electron percolation pathways and have been the focus of interest for variety of applications including but not...
Rosette nanotubes (RNTs) are bio-inspired nanomaterials generated from the self-assembly of a guanine-cytosine motif called the “G∧C” base. These nanotubular architectures are promising 2-D coating materials for bone tissue engineering applications, and delivery scaffolds for hydrophobic drug...
