  • Facile synthesis of gradient mesoporous carbon monolith based on
           polymerization-induced phase separation
    • Authors: sales@wspc.com.sg (Shunjian Xu)
      Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Ahead of Print. In this paper, a gradient mesoporous carbon (GMC) monolith derived from the mixtures of phenolic resin (PF) and ethylene glycol (EG) was prepared by a facile route based on polymerization-induced phase separation under temperature gradient (TG). A graded biphasic structure of PF-rich and EG-rich phases was first formed in preform under a TG, and then the preform was pyrolyzed to obtain the GMC monolith. The TG is mainly induced by the thermal resistance of the preferential phase separation layer at high temperature region. The pore structure of the monolith changes gradually along the TG direction. When the TG varies from 58°C to 29°C, the pore size, apparent porosity and specific surface area of the monolith range respectively from 18 nm to 83 nm, from 32% to 39% and from 140.5 m2/g to 515.3 m2/g. The gradient porous structure of the monolith is inherited from that of the preform, which depends on phase separation under TG in the resin mixtures. The pyrolysis mainly brings about the contraction of the pore size and wall thickness as well as the transformation of polymerized PF into glassy carbon.

  • Fluorescence properties of full-color-emitting BCNO phosphors synthesized
           under different oxygen pressure
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. The colorful BCNO phosphors comprised of boron, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen atoms have been novelty synthesized by varying the environmental oxygen pressure without changing the compositions of the raw materials such as boric, urea, and poly-ethylene glycol. X-ray diffraction (XRD), fourier-transformed infrared (FTIR), and photoluminescence (PL) spectra were employed to characterize the effect of environmental oxygen pressure on the structure and PL properties of the synthesized phosphors. The results of their PL properties indicates that the emission color of these BCNO phosphors has been easily tailored for a large-range from violet to near-red regions through variations of the environmental oxygen pressure as prepared under the excitation of 365 nm. This provides a new approach to tailor the emitting colors.

  • Improved thermoelectric performance of Bi2Te3-xSex bulk materials produced
           by the preparation of high-pressure
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. The purpose of this research is to study the effect of Se doping content on the improvement in thermoelectric properties of Bi2Te3-xSex bulk materials produced by high-pressure role. The Bi2Te3-xSex bulk materials can be successfully synthesized within 30 min due to high-pressure role, which significantly shortened the synthesis time. The typical textures of the reaction products exhibit abundant cracked crystal planes and special layer structures with increasing Se content, which can coordinate electrical and thermal transport in the Bi2Te3-xSex samples to achieve an optimal thermoelectric performance. As a result, a Bi2Te2.73Se0.27 bulk material obtained a maximum ZT value of 1.03 at 344 K. These results suggest that the low Se doping content with high-pressure can improve the figure of merit of Bi2Te3-xSex materials.

  • Simple synthesis and enhanced photocatalytic performance of La-modified
           ZnO nanosheet-assembled flower-like microstructures
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. La-modified ZnO nanosheet-assembled flower-like microstructures, were successfully obtained through a facile two-step solution-based strategy including a simple aqueous solution and subsequent impregnation technique. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD) and ultraviolet-visible spectrometer (UV-Vis) were employed to characterize the morphology, composition, crystal structure and photocatalytic properties of prepared products in detail. The photocatalysis test results revealed that the La-modified ZnO nanoflowers displayed greatly enhanced catalytic performance and the decomposition efficiency was up to about 99.60%, which was mainly ascribed to the increased charge separation rate on the La-modified surface of ZnO nanosheets and the high surface area of the flower-like structure.

  • Performance improvement of Sn–Co alloy film anodes for lithium-ion
           batteries
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Three sets of Sn–Co alloy films were electrochemically deposited onto nodule-type Cu foil in aqueous solution. The results of X-ray diffraction (XRD), atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) proved that the electrochemical current density and the depositing time had influence on the structure and the morphology of the alloy films. The electrochemical properties of the Sn–Co alloy film electrodes for lithium-ion battery were investigated by galvanostatic charge-discharge test and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The Sn–Co alloy with the thickness of 0.8 μm created at the current density of 15 mA cm-2 presents excellent electrochemical performance with the discharge capacity of 949.3 mAh g-1 at the first cycle and 661.1 mAh g-1 after 70 cycles. The high coulombic efficiency of almost 100% can be observed at different current rate. The improved performance is attributed to the structure of Cu foil, the optimized Co content and thickness of the alloy film, which were beneficial to strengthen the adhesion of the active materials to the current collector, shorten diffusion length of lithium ions and reduce the electrical resistance.

  • Near-infrared quantum cutting of Dy3+, Ho3+–Yb3+ and
           Er3+–Yb3+-doped Ca10K(PO4)7 phosphors
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Dy3+, Ho3+–Yb3+ and Er3+–Yb3+-doped Ca10K(PO4)7 phosphors were prepared by solid-state reaction method, and their luminescence properties of near-infrared (NIR) quantum cutting (QC) were investigated for the first time. The Rietveld refinement performed for the X-ray diffractometer (XRD) data indicates the obtained samples are single-phase. From the excitation spectra, it can be seen that the energy transfers from Ho3+ to Yb3+, and from Er3+ to Yb3+ occur. The Dy3+, Ho3+–Yb3+ and Er3+–Yb3+ co-doped Ca10K(PO4)7 samples all exhibit NIR emission peaks in the QC processes, and their spectral characteristics are agreement with the corresponding NIR QC mechanisms. The NIR QC properties of the as-prepared samples indicate the potential applications in modifying the solar spectrum to enhance the efficiency of silicon solar cells.

  • Dielectric properties of spark plasma sintered BaTi2O5 ceramics prepared
           through sol–gel process
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Barium dititanate (BaTi2O5) ceramics with high density and phase purity were fabricated by spark plasma sintering (SPS) from the sol–gel derived powders. The fine grained ceramics exhibited a diffuse phase transition which is qualitatively the same as the conventional defects induced relaxor behavior but different in high transition temperature and weak diffuseness. Furthermore the dielectric constant of the present BaTi2O5 ceramics showed an abnormal enhancement under the dc bias. The tunability can reach 58%. This can be explained by the favor of b-axis during the cooling process with the help of the dc bias.

  • Synthesis, structure and electrochemical behavior of a 3D crystalline
           copper(II) metal-organic framework
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Using an flexible amide-type tripodal ligand N,N′,N″-tris(3-pyridyl)-1,3,5-benzenetricarboxamide (L) and 1,4-benzenedicarboxylic acid (H2bdc), a three-dimensional copper(II) metal-organic framework (MOF) formulated as [Cu(bdc)(L)]n has been hydrothermally synthesized and structurally characterized by IR, elemental, X-ray single-crystal diffraction and thermal analysis.

  • FTIR and VSM properties of samarium-doped nickel ferrite
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Nickel Ferrite (NiFe2O4) doped with Samarium (Sm) (0.2, 0.3, 0.4, 0.5 mol.%) was prepared by the conventional solid-state reaction. The crystal structure, surface morphology, infrared spectrum of absorption, and magnetic properties of samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). XRD patterns were indexed with inverse spinel cubic phase with the space group of Fd-3m of nickel ferrite. The average grain size was about 5–10 μm. FTIR spectral study on the NiFe2O4 ferrite phase was recorded between 350 cm-1 and 4000 cm-1. Two fundamental absorption bands of the ferrites were appeared at 450 cm-1 and 1000 cm-1 characteristic of metal vibrations. VSM measurements show that the NiFe2O4 doped with Sm 0.3% has the highest value of saturation magnetization. It is also easily demagnetized due to the low value of coercivity field it has. Both NiFe2O4 doped with Sm 0.2 mol.% and 0.4 mol.% materials have same values of coercivity field. However, NiFe2O4 doped with Sm 0.4 mol.% material has the comparatively high value of saturation magnetization than NiFe2O4 doped with Sm 0.2%, also this material was hardly demagnetized, and has highest coercivity field.

  • Electrical characterization of Bi1.50-xYxZn0.92Nb1.5O6.92 varactors
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. The electrical properties of yttrium doped bismuth zinc niobium oxide (BZN) pyrochlore ceramics are explored by means of temperature dependent electrical conductivity dielectric constant and capacitance spectra in the frequency range of 0–3 GHz. It is observed that the doped BZN exhibit a conductivity type conversion from intrinsic to extrinsic as the doping content increased from 0.04 to 0.06. The thermal energy bandgap of the intrinsic type is 3.45 eV. The pyrochlore is observed to exhibit a dielectric breakdown at 395 K. In addition, a negative capacitance (NC) spectrum with main resonance peak position of 23.2 MHz is detected. The NC effect is ascribed to the increased polarization and the availability of more free carriers in the device. When the NC signal amplitude is attenuated in the range of 0–20 dBm at 50 MHz and 150 MHz, wide tunability is monitored. Such characteristics of the Y-doped BZN are attractive for using them to cancel the positive parasitic capacitance of electronic circuits. The canceling of parasitic capacitance improves the high frequency performance of filter inductors and reduces the common mode noise of the resonance signal.

  • Synthesis and characterization of hydrogen-bond acidic functionalized
           graphene
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Hexafluoroisopropanol phenyl group functionalized materials have great potential in the application of gas-sensitive materials for nerve agent detection, due to the formation of strong hydrogen-bonding interactions between the group and the analytes. In this paper, take full advantage of ultra-large specific surface area and plenty of carbon–carbon double bonds and hexafluoroisopropanol phenyl functionalized graphene was synthesized through in situ diazonium reaction between -C=C- and p-hexafluoroisopropanol aniline. The identity of the as-synthesis material was confirmed by transmission electron microscopy, Raman spectroscopy, ultraviolet visible spectroscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and thermo gravimetric analysis. The synthesis method is simply which retained the excellent physical properties of original graphene. In addition, the novel material can be assigned as an potential candidate for gas sensitive materials towards organophosphorus nerve agent detection.

  • On the functional degradation of binary titanium–tantalum
           high-temperature shape memory alloys — A new concept for fatigue
           life extension
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. High-temperature shape memory alloys are promising candidates for actuator applications at elevated temperatures. Ternary nickel–titanium-based alloys either contain noble metals which are very expensive, or suffer from poor workability. Titanium–tantalum shape memory alloys represent a promising alternative if one can avoid the cyclic degradation due to the formation of the omega phase. The current study investigates the functional fatigue behavior of Ti–Ta and introduces a new concept providing for pronounced fatigue life extension.

  • In situ high pressure synthesis of cBN-based composites
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Vickers hardness, phase combination, elastic modulus and cutting performance of the cubic boron nitride (cBN) based composites with different cBN weight ratios sintered at high pressure and high temperature were investigated. During high-pressure sintering, reactions occurred between cBN and Ti3SiC2, then new compounds, TiB2, C0.7N0.3Ti, SiC and SiB4 were formed, and no hBN phase was observed. Bulk modulus and hardness of the cBN composites decreased with increasing Ti3SiC2 contents in raw mixture, and the highest hardness of 35.9 GPa was achieved for 95 wt.% cBN–5 wt.% Ti3SiC2 composition specimen sintered at 1600°C. In addition, the present cBN-based composites exhibited good cutting performance.

  • Epitaxial BiFe0.95Mn0.05O3 film prepared by sol–gel method combined
           with rapid thermal annealing
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Epitaxial BiFe0.95Mn0.05O3 (BFMO) film with room-temperature switching properties is prepared on SrTiO3 (STO) substrate with a SrRuO3 (SRO) buffer layer by sol–gel method coupled with rapid thermal annealing (RTA). The remnant polarization and coercive field of SRO/BFMO/SRO capacitor, measured at 455 kV/cm, are 51.8 μC/cm2 and 153.5 kV/cm, respectively. Besides the good fatigue resistance and retention characteristics, the relatively small leakage current density of the capacitor is mainly attributed to the suppression of oxygen vacancies resulting from RTA. Moreover, the SRO/BFMO/SRO capacitor satisfies the Ohmic conduction behavior at fields lower than 90 kV/cm, and the Schottky emission at fields higher than 90 kV/cm.

    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. Al-doped ZnO (AZO) powders with flower-like microstructures were successfully synthesized through a simple and efficient hydrothermal approach, and were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and energy diffraction spectrum (EDS). All the samples presented high crystallinity with a hexagonal wurtzite structure. The heater gas sensors based on AZO were fabricated and investigation of gas sensing properties was conducted. The sensors showed high response values and reproducible response-recovery for 50–1800 ppm ethanol at 332°C, comparing with NH3, SO2, CO, and HCHO. The underlying mechanism was discussed.

  • Preparation of activated carbon monolith by application of phenolic resins
           as carbon precursors
    • Abstract: Functional Materials Letters, Volume 0, Issue 0, Ahead of Print. In the current work, activated carbon monoliths have been prepared by application of different phenolic hydrocarbons namely catechol and resorcinol as carbon precursors. For synthesis of carbon monolith, the precursors have been mixed with Genapol PF-10 as template and then polymerized in the presence of lysine as catalyst. Then the polymerized monolith carbonized in inert atmosphere at 700°C and activated by water steam at 550°C. It was found that resorcinol polymerization is easier than catechol and occurred at 90°C while for polymerization of catechol elevated temperature of 120°C at hydrothermal condition is necessary. The prepared activated carbon samples have been characterized by various analysis methods including scanning electron microscopy (SEM), surface area measurement, and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The adsorptions of three different aromatic hydrocarbons by the prepared activated carbon samples have also been investigated by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and UV–Vis spectroscopy. It was found that carbon monolith prepared by catechol as carbon precursor has higher adsorpability and strength in comparison with the other sample. The higher performance of carbon monolith prepared by catechol can be associated with its higher active sites in comparison with resorcinol.
