    Abstract:

    Abstract Zeolite imidazole framework (ZIF-90) nanoparticles were chemically modified by grafting triptycene moieties. The modified nanoparticles were introduced into a triptycene-based polyimide as fillers to generate mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) for gas separation. The incorporation of “hook-like” triptycene moieties in both dispersed and continuous phases led to intimate contact between the two phases and thus defect-free interfacial morphology, due to the supramolecular interlocking and π…

    Abstract:

    Printing techniques using nanomaterials have emerged as a versatile tool for fast prototyping and potentially large-scale manufacturing of functional devices. Surfactants play a significant role in many printing processes due to their ability to reduce interfacial tension between ink solvents and nanoparticles and thus improve ink colloidal stability. Here, a colloidal graphene quantum dot (GQD)-based nanosurfactant is reported to stabilize various types of 2D materials in aqueous inks. In pa…

    Abstract:

    Uranyl vanadate compounds with divalent cations, M(UO2)(V2O7) (M = Ca, Sr) and Sr3(UO2)(V2O7)2, were synthesized by flux crystal growth, and their crystal structures were solved using single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. Ca(UO2)V2O7 and Sr(UO2)V2O7 were synthesized from reactants with molar ratios M:U:V of 1:1:2 and identical heating conditions, and increasing the M:U:V ratio to 3:1:4 resulted in Sr3(UO2)(V2O7)2. Crystallographic data for M(UO2)V2O7 compounds are: a = 7.1774(18) Å, b = 6.77…

    Abstract:

    The influence of different SPS-based methods, that is, conventional spark plasma sintering (SPS), flash SPS (FSPS), and reactive SPS (RSPS) on the properties of Al2O3/SiC composite was investigated. It was shown that the application of preliminary high energy ball milling of the powders significantly enhances the sinterability of the ceramics. It was also demonstrated that FSPS provides unique conditions for rapid, that is, less than a minute, consolidation of refractory ceramics. The Al2O3-2…

    Abstract:

    Flexible thermoelectric (TE) devices hold great promise for energy harvesting and cooling applications, with increasing signi cance to serve as perpetual power sources for exible electronics and wearable devices. Despite unique and superior TE properties widely reported in nanocrystals, transforming these nanocrystals into exible and functional forms remains a major challenge. Herein, demonstrated is a transformative 3D conformal aerosol jet printing and rapid photonic sintering process to pr…
