Ag-TiO2 nanoparticles for photocatalytic degradation of sparfloxacin

Raviraj M. Kulkarni; Ramesh S. Malladi; Manjunath S. Hanagadakar

Volume 3, Issue 8 , 2018, , Pages 526-529

  Liquid Impregnation (LI) technique was developed to prepare 1% and 2% Ag doped Titania nanoparticles. The characterization of the prepared nanoparticles was achieved by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive X-ray Analysis (EDX) and Transmission Electron Microscopy ...  Read More

Deepti R. Kulkarni; Narasimha H. Ayachit; Raviraj M. Kulkarni

Volume 3, Issue 3 , 2018, , Pages 181-183

  We report an inexpensive TiO2 based quantum dot solar cell (QDSSC) with improved power conversion efficiency prepared by simple techniques. Barium doped zinc sulfide has been successfully deposited on cadmium sulfide quantum dots (QDs) by simple successive ion layer adsorption and reaction (SILAR) technique. ...  Read More

Preparation and characterization of nanoparticles mixed cutting fluids

Rabesh Kumar Singh; Anuj Kumar Sharma; Amit Rai Dixit; Arun Kumar Tiwari; Amitava Mandal

Volume 2, Issue 7 , 2017, , Pages 458-462

  Health and environmental concerns about the use of excessive conventional cutting fluids during conventional machining has led to the development of a new type of cutting fluid. Inefficient disposal of industrial cutting fluids during wet machining also reduces the use of conventional cutting fluid. ...  Read More

Visible light driven photocatalysis using nitrogen doped TiO2 quantum dots prepared by microemulsion route

Yuvraj S. Malghe; Atul B. Lavand

Volume 2, Issue 1 , 2017, , Pages 16-21

  Here, we report on microemulsion synthesis of nitrogen (N) doped TiO2 quantum dots (QDs) with improved visible-light response. XRD, FTIR, XPS, EDX and Raman spectroscopy confirms that N was doped successfully in TiO2 lattice. SEM and TEM study confirms spherical morphology of N-doped TiO2 QDs. N-doped ...  Read More

Effect of gadolinium inclusion on the raman spectra and photoluminescence of TiO2 nanoparticles

J. Dhanalakshmi; D. Pathinettam Padiyan

Volume 1, Issue 2 , 2016, , Pages 195-199

  GdxTi1-xO2 nanocomposites with x=0.00, 0.02, 0.04, 0.06, 0.08 & 0.10 were prepared through sol-gel method.  The samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), High resolution scanning electron microscope (HR-SEM), Raman spectroscopy and photoluminescence ...  Read More
