    Ag-containing ZnO/?-Ga2O3 semiconductor, which exhibit reduced bandgap, increased light absorption, and hydrophilicity, have been found to be useful for photocatalytic CO2 reduction and N2 fixation by water. The charge-separation is facilitated by the new interfaces and inherent vacancies. The Ag@GaZn demonstrated the highest photocurrent response, about 20- and 2.27-folds that of the Ga and GaZn samples, respectively. CO, CH4, and H2 formed as products for photo-reduction of CO2. Ag@GaZn catalyst exhibited the highest AQY of 0.121% at 400nm (31.2W/m2). Also, Ag@GaZn generated 740 of NH4+ ions, which was about 18-folds higher than Ga sample. In situ DRIFTS for isotopic-labelled 13CO2 and 15N2 reaffirmed the photo-activity of as-synthesized catalysts. Density functional theory provided insight into the relative affinity of different planes of heterostructures towards H2O, CO2 and N2 molecules. The structure-photoactivity rationale behind the intriguing Ag@GaZn sample offers a fundamental insight into the role of plasmonic Ag and design principle of heterostructure with improved photoactivity and stability.

    IF 5.436 (2021), Simple inorganic routes for the synthesis of WO3 nanostructures with variable crystal phases, WO3·(H2O)0.5 and (NH4)0.33WO3, and their self-assembled structures as nanoplates and nanospheres, respectively, were reported. The morphologies and formation of nanoplates and nanospheres were controlled by changing the solvent amount (H2O/n-propanol) in the solvothermal reactions without any stabilizing agent or surfactant. The adsorption properties of the WO3 nanostructures were studied, and it was found that nanospheres show remarkably higher and ultrafast adsorption of methylene blue (MB) in comparison to nanoplates and commercial WO3. The adsorption isotherms, kinetics, mechanism, and reusability of (NH4)0.33WO3 nanospheres were systematically studied. The nanospheres exhibited an exceptionally high adsorption rate K2 of 17.24 g·mg–1·min–1 and the maximum adsorption capacity of 116 mg·g–1 for MB. The adsorption cycle of nanospheres was examined, and the removal efficiency of MB remained at ?98–99% even after three regeneration cycles. In addition, (NH4)0.33WO3 nanospheres exhibited excellent selective adsorption performance toward several cationic dyes, including MB, malachite green (MG), safranin O (SO), crystal violet (CV), and separate MO, a negatively charged dye, with a separation efficiency of 99.93 and 77.31% from binary and pentanary dye mixture solutions, respectively, at neutral pH.

    IF: 9.473 MoO3-x/N-doped-carbon (MoO3-x/N-C) nanocomposites with nanobelt structures were prepared by the in situ carbonization of the (NH4)Mo3O9–(NH4)2Mo4O13/oleylamine–oleic acid hybrids, and were designed using a two-step tailored nanoemulsion method followed by a solvothermal process. The MoO3?x/N-C nanocomposites possess high stability in a wide pH range of 1–11. In addition to the formation mechanism, detailed studies on adsorption properties, including adsorption isotherms, kinetics, mechanism, and reusability of the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites were systematically studied. The effects of various parameters on the adsorption characteristics, such as adsorbate concentration, contact time, pH, and temperature, were also evaluated. The detailed investigation of the kinetics and adsorption mechanism of MB from an aqueous solution showed that the adsorption process follows a pseudo-second-order kinetics and intraparticle diffusion model. The adsorption isotherm study demonstrated that the Langmuir isotherm model could illustrate the experimental data with a maximum adsorption capacity value of ?1360 mg g-1, which turns out to be the highest among the previously reported adsorbents based on MoO3 nanomaterials, and is attributed to multiple adsorption mechanisms including electrostatic, pi-pi stacking, and H-bonding interactions between the MB dye and the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites. Thermodynamic analysis suggested that MB adsorption onto the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites was spontaneous and endothermic. Additionally, the adsorption and desorption cycles were examined for 100 ppm aqueous MB solution, where the removal efficiency by the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites remained at ~99% even after four regeneration cycles. Furthermore, the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites could selectively adsorb MB from a binary solution mixture containing two times higher concentrations of an anionic dye, methyl orange (MO), and the separation efficiency obtained was ~99% at neutral pH. More significantly, the MoO3-x/N-C nanocomposites could successfully and simultaneously adsorb several cationic dyes, including MB,malachite green (MG), crystal violet (CV), safranin O (SO), and separate an anionic dye, MO, from quaternary and pentanary dye mixture solutions with a separation efficiency of ~75% and 62%, respectively, at neutral pH. To the best of our knowledge, the effective separation of a single component by molybdenum oxide-based nanomaterials via a simple batch separation technique from a four/five-component mixed interfering analyte, close to a real matrix system, in an aqueous medium at neutral pH has not been reported so far. Therefore, the MoO3-x-based nanocomposite could be a new promising material for application in dye wastewater treatment.

    IF : 4.568; In the current scenario of increased pollution and releasing toxic gases by burning petroleum products, switching to natural gas is more promising for reducing CO2 emissions and air pollutants. Hence, research on Liquefied Natural Gas and Compressed Natural Gas is gaining more value. However, natural gas primarily consists of CH4, which has less energy density than conventional fuels. Interestingly, since the C?H ratio of CH4 gas is 1?:?4, it is easily combustible, gives less carbon footprint, and reduces unburnt hydrocarbon pollution. Hence, research on storing and transporting CH4 has utmost importance, and porous materials are one of the suitable candidates for storing CH4. Herein we report the scalable synthesis of highly porous and crystalline covalent organic frameworks for storing CH4 at room temperature and pressure. Two COFs, namely, Tp-Azo and Tp-Azo-BD(Me)2, synthesized in 1?kg at ?45?g batch scale using a Planetary mixer, displayed a maximum BET surface area of around 3345?m2/g, and 2342?m2/g and CH4 storage of 174.10?cc/cc and 151?cc/cc, respectively. A comparison of the CH4 sorption of Tp-Azo and Tp-Azo-BD(Me)2 COFs synthesized in different batches has a variation of only ±5?cc/cc and shows the consistency in bulk scale synthesis of COFs. The cyclic equilibrium CH4 adsorption studies showed the COFs are stable with consistent CH4 adsorption and desorption cycles. The present study is a step towards the scalable mechanochemical synthesis of COFs for gas storage applications.

    Both mechanically and electrically rechargeable zinc-air batteries (ZABs) have received much interest due to their high energy density and suitability for mobile and stationary applications. However, their commercialization has been impeded by the lack of robust, low-cost and environmentally benign catalyst materials that can be easily scaled up. In this context, the present work introduces a new type of transition metal-free catalytic material (AlOOH/NGr) by anchoring the pseudo-boehmite phase of aluminium oxyhydroxide (AlOOH) nanosheets over nitrogen-doped graphene (NGr) via a single-step and straightforward hydrothermal process. Furthermore, density functional theory (DFT) based computation demonstrates that the nucleation of AlOOH starts from the N-sites and points towards the strong surface interaction between AlOOH and NGr via doped nitrogen. AlOOH/NGr consisting of thin layered pseudo-boehmite sheets uniformly distributed over NGr has displayed an oxygen reduction reaction onset potential of 0.83 V and a half-wave potential of 0.72 V, along with good catalytic durability in alkaline medium. With this, AlOOH/NGr, when used as an air electrode for fabricating a primary Zn-air battery, the system has exhibited an open circuit voltage of ?1.27 V with a flat discharge profile at a current rate of 10 mA cm?2. The fabricated system delivered a specific capacity of ?720 mA h g?1 and a high power density of 204 mW cm?2 and is comparable to the counterpart system based on the state-of-the-art Pt/C (20 wt% Pt) cathode. Additionally, the homemade battery was able to maintain its performance after 4 times of mechanical recharging of the battery, which lasted for more than 35 h at a discharge current density of 10 mA cm?2. Thus, we have uncovered the potential of an earth-abundant metal-based catalytic system for fabricating and demonstrating a robust mechanically rechargeable zinc-air battery.

    This study investigates four machine-learning (ML) models to predict the redox potentials of phenazine derivatives in dimethoxyethane using density functional theory (DFT). A small data set of 151 phenazine derivatives having only one type of functional group per molecule (20 unique groups) was used for the training. Prediction accuracy was improved by a combined strategy of feature selection and hyperparameter optimization, using the external validation set. Models were evaluated on the external test set containing new functional groups and diverse molecular structures. High prediction accuracies of R2 > 0.74 were obtained on the external test set. Despite being trained on the molecules with a single type of functional group, models were able to predict the redox potentials of derivatives containing multiple and different types of functional groups with good accuracies (R2 > 0.7). This type of performance for predicting redox potential from such a small and simple data set of phenazine derivatives has never been reported before. Redox flow batteries (RFBs) are emerging as promising candidates for energy storage systems. However, new green and efficient materials are required for their widespread usage. We believe that the hybrid DFT-ML approach demonstrated in this report would help in accelerating the virtual screening of phenazine derivatives, thus saving computational and experimental costs. Using this approach, we have identified promising phenazine derivatives for green energy storage systems such as RFBs.
  • Kavita Joshi And Shweta Mehta, From molecular adsorption to decomposition of methanol on various ZnO facets: A periodic DFT study, Applied Surface Science., 602, 154150 (2022), DOI:
    Methanol is an interesting and important molecule to study because of its potential to replace existing fuels. It is also a prominent hydrogen source which can be used to generate hydrogen in-situ. ZnO is widely used as catalyst in synthesis of methanol from CO2 at industrial scale. In this work, we demonstrate that the same catalyst could be used for MeOH decomposition. We have investigated interaction of methanol with various flat and stepped facets of ZnO by employing Density Functional Theory (DFT). Two flat [(100) and (110)] and two stepped [(103) and (112)] facets are studied in detail for methanol adsorption. Chemisorption of MeOH with varying strength is common to all four facets. Most importantly spontaneous dissociation of O-H bond of methanol is observed on all facets except (110). Our DFT calculations reveal that molecular adsorption is favored on flat facets, while dissociation is favored on step facets. Also, (100) facet undergoes substantial reconstruction upon MeOH adsorption. Activation of C-H bond along with strengthening of C-O bond on ZnO facets suggest partial oxidation of methanol. With our DFT investigations, we dig deeper into the underlying electronic structure of various facets of ZnO and provide rationale for the observed facet dependent interaction of ZnO with MeOH.

    Methane has long captured the world's spotlight for being the simplest and yet one of the most notorious hydrocarbon. Exploring its potential to be converted into value added products has raised a compelling interest. In the present work, we have studied the efficiency of Single-Atom Catalysts (SACs) for methane activation employing Density Functional Theory (DFT). The Climbing Image-Nudged Elastic Bond (CI-NEB) method is used in tandem with the Improved Dimer (ID) method to determine the minimum energy pathway for the first C-H bond dissociation of methane. Our study reported that the transition-metal doped Cu(111) surfaces enhance adsorption, activate C-H bond, and reduce activation barrier for first C-H bond cleavage of methane. The results suggest Ru/Co/Rh doped Cu(111) as promising candidates for methane activation with minimal activation barrier and less endothermic reaction. For these SACs, the calculated activation barriers for first C-H bond cleavage are 0.17 eV, 0.24 eV, and 0.26 eV respectively, which is substantially lower than 1.13 eV, the activation barrier for Cu(111).
  • Aathira Nair, Nivedita Kenge And Kavita Joshi, Role of facet in the competitive pathway of ethylene epoxidation, Surface Science., 716, 121954 (2022), DOI:
    Ethylene epoxide (EtO) is used as raw material for a broad range of products from pharmaceuticals and plastics to paints and adhesives. Although the reaction of ethylene interacting with preadsorbed oxygen on Ag surface is known for decades, the underlying mechanism of EtO formation is not completely understood. Successful investigation of oxametallacycle (OMC) intermediate common to selective as well as non-selective path- ways has ensured at least 50% selectivity. The current study brings out the electronic signatures of distinct conformers of OMC stabilized on two different facets of Ag viz. (100) and (111). There are subtle differences between OMC conformers observed on these two facets with near-eclipsed on Ag(100) and near- staggered on Ag(111). A de- tailed analysis of Ag-O, C-O, C-C, and Ag-C interactions along with projected Density of States (pDOS) and projected Crystal Orbital Hamilton Population (pCOHP) imply towards ring closure on Ag(100) and hydrogen transfer on Ag(111). Finally, our un derstanding based on electronic and structural signatures are backed up by activation barriers computed through NEB calculations. Activation barrier for EtO is lower on ( 100) as compared to (111) facet. Thus, our study sheds light on how these differences between OMC affect the selectivity towards EtO.

    AbstractIdentifying factors that influence interactions at the surface is still an active area of research. In this study, we present the importance of analyzing bondlength activation, while interpreting Density Functional Theory (DFT) results, as yet another crucial indicator for catalytic activity. We studied theadsorption of small molecules, such as O 2 , N 2 , CO, and CO 2 , on seven face-centered cubic (fcc) transition metal surfaces (M = Ag, Au, Cu, Ir, Rh, Pt, and Pd) and their commonly studied facets (100, 110, and 111). Through our DFT investigations, we highlight the absence of linear correlation between adsorption energies (E ads ) and bondlength activation (BL act ). Our study indicates the importance of evaluating both to develop a better understanding of adsorption at surfaces. We also developed a Machine Learning (ML) model trained on simple periodic table properties to predict both, E ads and BL act . Our ML model gives an accuracy of Mean Absolute Error (MAE) ? 0.2 eV for E ads predictions and 0.02 Å for BL act predictions. The systematic study of the ML featuresthat affect E ads and BL act further reinforces the importance of looking beyond adsorption energies to get a full picture of surface interactions with DFT

    We have demonstrated a simple fabrication methodology of free-standing polymer composite film firework that sparkles, provides colour display and moderate sound, yet is less polluting. The polymer composite film fireworks are composed of magnesium boride (MgB2), sodium nitrite (NaNO2) and poly(vinyl alcohol) (PVA). This study also suggested that a flammable, explosive powder composition can be made of two very common inorganic precursors, mainly NaNO2 and MgB2. This is the first report demonstrating composite film fireworks with new flammable composition using metal boride as a primary precursor, which can also be used in conventional fireworks fabrication, replacing the traditional fuel, mainly gunpowder. The film fireworks were free from charcoal, sulphur, metal powder and paper. Therefore, they substantially lower the odour and COx, NOx emissions and minimize the substantial trash generated when burned. Most importantly, film firework‘s minimum ignition temperature and exothermic decomposition temperature are much higher than the ambient temperature; hence are safe to handle. IF: 1.983 (2021)

    IF 12.959; We demonstrate synthesis of a new low-D hybrid perovskitoid (a perovskite-like hybrid halide structure, yellow crystals, P21/n space group) using zwitterion cysteamine (2-aminoethanethiol) linker, and its remarkable molecular diffusion-controlled crystal-to-crystal transformation to Ruddlesden-Popper phase (Red crystals, Pnma space group). Our stable intermediate perovskitoid distinctly differs from all previous reports by way of a unique staggered arrangement of holes in the puckered 2D configuration with a facesharing connection between the corrugated-1D double chains. The PL intensity for the yellow phase is 5 orders higher as compared to the red phase and the corresponding average lifetime is also fairly long (143 ns). First principles DFT calculations conform very well with the experimental band gap data. We demonstrate applicability of the new perovskitoid yellow phase as an excellent active layer in a selfpowered photodetector and for selective detection of Ni2+ via On-Off-On photoluminescence (PL) based on its composite with few layer black phosphorous.

    IF 5.097; The design and synthesis of a highly sensitive and exceptionally selective surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate with an excellent reusable property are of significant interest because of its vast prospective application in actual and complicated detection environments. Here, a simple synthesis strategy was presented to fabricate crystalline two-dimensional (2D) MoO2/N-doped-carbon nanosheets with the plasmonic property. The morphology, crystal phase, and surface property of MoO2 nanomaterials (NMs) were specifically controlled under suitable reaction conditions. In addition, the plasmonic MoO2/N-doped-carbon NM exhibited a SERS maximum enhancement factor up to 1.38 × 104 with a detection limit as low as 1.0 × 10?6 M. More importantly, the as-synthesized nanocomposite shows high selectivity as a “SERS Tweezer” toward methylene blue (MB) in binary and ternary mixed interfering analyte solutions, preserving detection sensitivity toward MB for three cycles via an “elect-and-eliminate” approach. This strategy will be helpful to design other plasmonic semiconductor NMs for successful tangible applications of selective SERS sensing for trace impurity detections in real and complex environments.
