VIP: Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle Electrostatics

Dr. Kristina Tschulik, Dr. Wei Cheng, Dr. Christopher Batchelor-McAuley, Stuart Murphy, Dr. Dario Omanović and Prof. Dr. Richard G. Compton

Non-Invasive Probing of Nanoparticle ElectrostaticsNot what you might think: A new and non-invasive technique to probe the electrostatic interaction between surface-charged nanoparticles and a charged metal/solution interface shows that electrostatic effects are insignificant in all but very dilute electrolytes.

    Getting hot in here: An electrochemical field-effect transistor setup is used for cyclic voltammetry and conductivity measurements (see picture). It includes a counter electrode (CE) and a reference electrode (RE) immersed into a drop of 5 Li-S1-cMb solvent-free melt, which comprises Li+ (green circles) dispersed in polymer-conjugated myoglobin bioconjugates.

    Diffusing the situation: A dual oxygen-sensing electrochemical device is designed to enhance the accuracy of diffusivity measurements in porous electrodes of fuel cells.

  3. MnO QD/Graphene Dot Fabrics: A Versatile Nanohybrid Material

    Dr. Liwei Su, Jiajia Jiang, Prof. Lianbang Wang, Dr. Yuanhao Wang and Prof. Manman Ren

    Article first published online: 20 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/celc.201402459

    Polka dots go quantum: A gel-like film (GF) mechanism is proposed to prepare quantum dot/graphene nanosheet (QD/GNS) fabric. Large numbers of MnO QDs are homogeneously dispersed on the GNS surface, similar to polka dot fabrics in real life. This material presents superior long-term and rate performance for lithium storage.

  4. Assessments of Surface Coverage after Nanomaterials are Drop Cast onto Electrodes for Electroanalytical Applications

    Ya Yun Chan, Alex Y. S. Eng, Prof. Dr. Martin Pumera and Prof. Dr. Richard D. Webster

    Article first published online: 17 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/celc.201500047

    Incomplete coverage: The drop-casting procedure is unable to prevent solution-phase ions from diffusing all the way through the nanomaterial coating to the base electrode. Studies that utilize nanomaterial coatings on electrode surfaces need to take into account the effect of the base electrode on the overall measured current or potential.

  5. Electrospun Single-Phase Na1.2V3O8 Materials with Tunable Morphologies as Cathodes for Rechargeable Lithium-Ion Batteries

    Yah Wen Ko, Dr. Pei Fen Teh, Dr. Stevin Snellius Pramana, Dr. Chui Ling Wong, Tanto Su, Linlin Li and Prof. Srinivasan Madhavi

    Article first published online: 11 MAR 2015 | DOI: 10.1002/celc.201500023

    You spin me right round: Nanobelts with standalone and hierarchical configurations are synthesized by using a simple electrospinning technique with alterations to the sintering profile. As a potential cathode material for rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, the standalone, non-agglomerated nanobelts exhibit excellent cyclability and rate capability.
