Synthesis of Thin Film Vanadium Oxide (VO2)
Introduction Vanadium Oxide (VO2) is a thermochromics material, capable of undergoing a reversible semiconductor-to-metal phase transition at a relatively low temperature (~70oC). This phase transition temperature can be further reduced through the addition of metal dopants. The change in the optical properties of VO2 is marked by an increased in i...
Copper-based photovoltaic nanocrystals for thin-film solar cells
IntroductionIncreased environmental awareness promoted many countries to adopt renewable energy as the new power source. Solar energy tapped through photovoltaic (PV) technology has become the widely accepted source of power generation, as it operation generates no pollution, and no greenhouse gas emissions. Improving efficiency while reducing cost...
Formaldehyde-Free Phenolic Bio-Resins
BackgroundPhenol formaldehyde (PF) resins are synthetic polymers which have a market value of $10 billion globally per year. They are used in a wide variety of products, including coatings, adhesives, laminates, and engineered plastics. Comprising many household and industrial goods such as plywood, countertops, brake pads, and bearings. PF resins ...
Stimuli-responsive polyglyoxylates as biodegradable polymers
Market for Biodegradable PolymersMost synthetic polymers are produced from petrochemicals and are not biodegradable. Conventional polymers such as polypropylene and polyethylene persist in the environment for many years, even after their disposal. The potential of biodegradable polymers to overcome such limitations has long been recognized. Under p...
Rice Straw Agri-Silica
Background:Rice is one of the most prevalent food crops in the world. In 2005, the International Rice Research Institute estimated global production at 618 million tonnes. Each tonne of rice produces an equal amount of straw and 200 kg of husk as bi-products. In many countries, the rice straw bi-product is burned in open fields, generating smoke an...
Super-Hydrophobic and Super-Oleophobic Barrier Coating for Electronic Devices
Background:The electronics industry aims to deliver flexible, lightweight and inexpensive electronic products to consumers. The absence of effective barrier technologies meeting the water permeability demands is the single largest technical hurdle preventing the widespread commercialization of products such as organic solar cells (OPV), disposable ...
