Nanocrystalline titania: Controlling physical properties and photocatalytic behavior
This dissertation describes a hydrothermal method for synthesizing titanium dioxide nanocrystals with controllable physical properties and explores the influence of such properties on the material's photocatalytic efficiency. ...
Influence of varying analyte concentration, environment, and composition on nanoshell-based SERS
This thesis describes a series of experiments designed to examine the use of Au nanoshells as highly controllable surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) nanosensor substrates. Individual Au nanoshells provide simple, ...
Chemistry of nanostructured carbon: I. Fluorination, cutting and derivatization of single-wall carbon nanotubes; II. Fluorination and characterization of polymeric carbon 60
Purified HiPco SWNTs have been fluorinated with elemental fluorine under various conditions to control the stoichiometry of the resultant Fluorotubes. The partially fluorinated SWNTs with stoichiometry CFx (x ≤ 0.3), ...
