Polystyrene/magnetite nanocomposite synthesis and characterization: investigation of magnetic and electrical properties for using as microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)

nanocomposite were studied by VSM, XRD and FT-IR. 2 Experimental 2.1 Apparatus Electrochemical experiments were performed with a 797 VA Computrace (Metrohm) for cyclic voltammetry studies (CVS). A conventional three-electrode system was used, including a platinum wire as an auxiliary electrode, Ag/AgCl (saturated KCl) as a reference electrode, and the prepared electrode made from the nanocomposite as the working electrode. A 1 M LiCl solution was used as an electrolyte. For characterization of the nanocomposite FT-IR (Fourier transform infrared) spectra were

) was used as the photogeneration source [ 25 ]. Surface photovoltage (SPV) decays were measured in the contactless capacitor arrangement, and details of the setup are given in the literature [ 26 ]. Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectra were recorded using FT-IR Spectrometer SPECTRUM BX II (Perkin Elmer). 3 Results and discussion 3.1 PL spectra Photoluminescence spectra of SC1, SC2 and SC3 samples are shown in Fig. 1 . They can be decomposed into two components (dashed lines) with relative intensities given by the vertical bars. It is seen that a

Novel and facile synthesis of transparent-monolithic TiO2 gels by sol-gel method based on an esterification reaction

method via the chemical modification of titanium isopropoxide with esterification mixture. This is an efficient method for introducing water homogeneously (in situ) into a solution and therefore avoiding the problems associated with mixing irregularities. This method takes only substantial time (3 days) to obtain a transparent monolithic gel. The precipitate formation never occurs. FT-IR spectra of the samples suggest that the acetic acid is chemically bound to the titanium by bridging acetates leading to Ti[(OH) y (OOCCH 3 ) x ] oligomers. 2 Experimental

Synthesis of PVDF/SBT composite thin films by spin coating technology and their ferroelectric properties

placed into the air blowing thermostatic oven under 60 °C for 48 hours. When they were naturally cooled down to room temperature, these x-SBT/PVDF thin films were successfully fabricated. 2.3 Structural and electrical characterizations The crystal structure properties of x-SBT/PVDF films on Si substrate synthesized in this study were investigated by θ to 2θ method of XRD with a CuKα 1 (λ = 0.15406 nm) source at 40 kV and 35 mA using an ARL XTRA powder X-ray diffraction diffractometer at a scan rate of 10°/min. FT-IR spectra were performed on a Nicolet FT-IR

, therefore decreases the size of nanoparticles [ 14 ]. In the present work, two widely used nanoparticles of iron and iron oxide were obtained at the same time by the pulsed current electrochemical method using a membrane divided electrochemical cell and iron (II) sulfate aqueous solution as a starting material. The composition, size and morphology of the synthesized samples were characterized by FT-IR spectroscopy, XRD, SEM, TEM and VSM studies. The method has been found to be simpler, efficient, clean and energy saving, which could have a potential for industrial

image processing approach using ImageJ programme has been also used to measure the particle size from 2D SEM images. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) measurement has been performed by Perkin Elmer 1600 FT-IR in the spectral range of 400 cm –1 to 4000 cm –1 in % T mode using KBr pellet technique. The X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) data was recorded using PANaytical’s X’Pert-Pro diffractometer, with CuKα radiation (λ = 1.5406 Å), operating at 40 kV and 40 mA.
