  2. 2. Oxidation kinetics of nickel particles

    Author : Richard Karmhag; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Oxidation; kinetics; nickel; particles; UFP; solar absorber; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; Solid State Physics; fasta tillståndets fysik;

    Abstract : Nanoparticles have an immense surface to volume ratio. This is a key factor to the new properties of some materials made up of such particles. The oxide layer formed on all materials will have a large influence on the behaviour of these materials. The layer isadvantageous in some cases but causes problems in other. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ru-Based Water Oxidation Catalysts : Development and Mechanistic Studies

    Author : Andrey Shatskiy; Björn Åkermark; Martin Albrecht; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ruthenium; catalysis; water oxidation; artificial photosynthesis; organisk kemi; Organic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Oxidation of water constitutes one of the most challenging processes in artificial photosynthesis, which aims at storing solar energy in the form of chemical bonds of high-energy fuels. To facilitate this process, efficient and durable water oxidation catalysts have to be developed and integrated into the complete photosynthetic cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Structural, Electronic and Reactive Properties of Pentapyridyl - Base Metal Complexes : Relevance for Water Oxidation Catalysis

    Author : Manuel Boniolo; Johannes Messinger; Antoni Llobet; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Water oxidation; Base metal complexes; Redox potential; Spin crossover; Magnetic anisotropy; Chemistry with specialization in Molecular Biomimetics; Kemi med inriktning mot molekylär biomimetik;

    Abstract : The rationalization of chemical-physical proprieties of transition metal complexes is fundamental in order to understand and tune their reactivity. In this thesis, a systematic investigation of the geometrical and electronic properties of [M(Py5OH)Cl]+ complexes (M= Mn, Fe, Co, Ni) has been performed, and their ability to act as molecular water oxidation catalysts has been probed.

  5. 5. Chemical Modification of Cellulose Fibres and Fibrils for Design of New Materials

    Author : Verónica López Durán; Lars Wågberg; Per A. Larsson; Akira Isogai; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; borohydride reduction; cellulose-based materials; chemical modification; chlorite oxidation; fibres; fibrils; periodate oxidation; TEMPO oxidation; Fiber- och polymervetenskap; Fibre and Polymer Science;

    Abstract : Due to the growing interest in biobased materials in today’s society, where the need for a cyclic economy is obvious, there has been a huge increase in the  interest for using cellulose due to its excellent mechanical and chemical properties. However, the properties of cellulose have to be modified and improved in order to satisfy advanced material applications where the cellulose properties can be tuned to fit the properties of other components in composite mixtures.
