Gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) constitute one of the most interesting model systems in the area of heterogeneous catalysis. Au NP hybrids with hollow nanocages, alloyed nanoparticles and core-shell structure play important roles in harvesting light energy and
In chemistry, ‘organic’ molecules are defined as having a carbon-based structure and are found in all living systems. They can also be designed and synthesised for application in numerous industries, for example as pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, cosmetics, paints,
Most chemical reaction of industrial relevance are catalysed by different metals in their metallic state. However, after catalyst synthesis which involves calcination to adequately anchor those active metals unto the catalyst supports, the metals were oxidized, thus
Artificial enzymes were first described several decades ago and have become an ambition for bionanomaterial sciences. Artificial enzymes are small fabricated molecules that possess an active centre, which binds to a substrate and catalyses a chemical reaction.
In aqueous solution, molecules with both polar head group and non polar tail (amphiphilic molecules) aggregate i.e., micelles. They absorb/uptake both polar and non polar molecules from solution as a universal host. Thus the horizon of catalysis, detergency,
Nuclear energy is a promising source of renewable energy, however, to facilitate its adoption and avoid nuclear proliferation, solutions to the handling, reprocessing, and disposal of nuclear waste must be addressed. In the United States, commercial reactors
Catalysis is the cornerstone for chemical industries. The development of low-cost sustainable catalysts with high catalytic activity, selectivity, and stability under mild conditions remains at the heart of modern material chemistry, green chemistry, and catalysis fields for
