Abstract null null Among the most toxic and suffocating gases in industries and mines are carbon monoxide (CO) and nitrogen oxides (NOx). The electrostatically functionalized self-assembled MWCNT (f-MWCNTs) were employed to develop a sensing device to selectively sense gases such as CO and NOx with high sensitivity and repeatability to as low as sub-ppm levels. The resistive gas sensor's operation is primarily based on changes in the electrical resistance of the f-MWCNT network as a result of its selective interaction with the specific target gas in a two-pole format. The degree to which the electrical resistance of the sensing film increases or decreases is determined by the concentration of the target gas to which it is exposed. As a result, the target gas can be detected both qualitatively and quantitatively. The sensitivity of 100 ppb and 300 ppb with the sensor response time of ∼30 s and ∼50 s for NOx and CO respectively were recorded using our gas sensor and was found noticeably efficient than conventional MOS-based solid-state gas detectors. It was also realized that the corona-assisted, electrostatic, self-assembled MWCNT based sensor fabrication technique is fast, simple, low-cost, and environmentally friendly for commercial-scale production of gas sensors. This approach also extends many technical merits such as simultaneous deposition and functionalization of MWCNTs at (RT = 30 °C) room temperature for specific target analyte detection. These unique characteristics make f-MWCNTs based devices very appealing for real-time commercial and domestic gas sensing applications.

Abstract We report for the first time on the parahydrophobicity and stick-slip wetting dynamics of vertically aligned carbon-nanotube (CNT) forests and compare it with previously observed droplet infiltration characteristics. CNT surfaces have generally been reported to be superhydrophobic, but unstable, as the water rapidly infiltrates the forest. In this paper, we demonstrate the first observation of parahydrophobicity of CNT forests, where the surface exhibits an apparent static water contact...

We report the preparation of graphene oxide nanoparticles (GONPs), a metal-free, heterogeneous, non-toxic, reusable and mesoporous green-(acid)-catalyst obtained by sugar carbonization through a micro-wave chemical synthesis method for the synthesis of bio-active benzylpyrazolyl coumarin derivatives (BCDs) under thermal conditions (50 °C) in ethanol solvent. The obtained products were purified by re-crystallization from ethanol, assuring usability of GONPs in multicomponent reactions (MCRs) that...

: Conversion of waste heat to voltage has the potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of a number of critical energy sectors, such as the transportation and electricity-generation sectors, and manufacturing processes. Thermal energy is also an abundant low-flux source that can be harnessed to power portable/wearable electronic devices and critical components in remote off-grid locations. As such, a number of different inorganic and organic materials are being explored for their po...

Abstract CdO decorated flower-like ZnO hollow microspheres were successfully prepared via a two-step hydrothermal strategy. CdO nanoparticles (∼12 nm) equably loaded on the surfaces of ZnO nanosheets, which could be clearly observed from SEM and TEM images. The results of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and H 2 temperature-programmed reduction (H 2 -TPR) indicated that the amount of chemisorbed oxygen was increased after the introduction of CdO nanoparticles. Compared with the flower-like ZnO h...

The development of simple and low-cost chemical sensors is critically important for improving human life. Many types of chemical sensors have been developed. Among them, the chemiresistive sensors receive particular attention because of their simple structure, the ease of high precise measurement and the low cost. This review mainly focuses on carbon nanotube (CNT)-based chemiresistive sensors. We first describe the properties of CNTs and the structure of CNT chemiresistive sensors. Next, the se...

A hybrid material consisting of bulk-reduced TiO2, graphene oxide (GO) and polyaniline (PANI) was fabricated by decorating TiO2 with GO, followed by in-situ oxidative chemical polymerization of aniline. The TiO2 nanoparticles (NPs) with thermally stable bulk reduction states were initially prepared from porous amorphous titanium as the precursor. The TiO2 NPs and GO were chemically conjugated to each other via amide bonds to improve the stability of the composite. The sensor, if operated in the ...

In this paper, SnO2/MWCNT nanocomposites with different types of MWCNTs, namely as-received, acid treated and Ag-decorated, were synthesized via a facile method and their CO gas sensing properties were investigated. Microstructure and phase formation of the synthesized composites were studied using FE-SEM and XRD, respectively. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was employed to study the functional groups on the surface of MWCNTs after acid treatment. CO gas sensing results showed th...

Abstract Sm 2 O 3 microspheres were prepared by the coprecipitation method, using samarium nitrate and formic acid. The size of the microspheres was in the range 1–6 μm; however, extensive fragmentation was observed. An outstanding improvement of the microstructure was achieved by using an aqueous solution of pectin. In this case, hollow and nanoporous microspheres, having little fragmentation, were produced. The evolution of the crystal structure with calcination temperature revealed the format...
