Pujari Revealing the Nano-Level Molecular Packing in Chitosan–NiO Nanocomposite by Using Positron Annihilation Spectroscopy and Small-Angle X-ray Scattering ChemPhysChem 14
Principles of packing: Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy and the coincidence Doppler broadening (CDB) technique are used to quantify the free volume and molecular packing in chitosan–NiO nanocomposites (CNCs) containing 0.2–5 wt % NiO. CDB reveals the longitudinal component of the positron–electron momentum (PL, see picture). The changes in nanohole size, density, and size distribution as a function of NiO loading are measured.
