Protein-aided formation of triangular silver nanoprisms with enhanced SERS performance
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-10)
In this work, we present a modified seed-mediated synthetic strategy for the growth of silver nanoprisms with low shape polydispersity, narrow size distribution and tailored plasmonic absorbance. During the seed nucleation ...
Giant piezoelectric voltage coefficient in grain-oriented modified PbTiO3 material
(Springer Nature, 2016-10-11)
A rapid surge in the research on piezoelectric sensors is occurring with the arrival of the Internet of Things. Single-phase oxide piezoelectric materials with giant piezoelectric voltage coefficient (g, induced voltage ...
Waste not want not: life cycle implications of gold recovery and recycling from nanowaste
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-08-24)
Commercial-scale applications of nanotechnology are rapidly increasing. Enhanced production of nanomaterials and nano-enabled products and their resultant disposal lead to concomitant increases in the volume of nanomaterial ...
Nanoparticles in road dust from impervious urban surfaces: distribution, identification, and environmental implications
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-24)
Nanoparticles (NPs) resulting from urban road dust resuspension are an understudied class of pollutants in urban environments with strong potential for health hazards. The objective of this study was to investigate the ...
