    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:https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apsusc.2022.154150.
    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).

    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.

    IF: 11.301 (2019); For the first time, we have synthesized all-inorganic CsPbBr3/Cs4PbBr6 perovskite@COF nanocomposites under atmospheric conditions and tuned the crystal structures of the perovskite as well. The nanocomposite is reasonably stable and maintains its crystalline properties even when dipped into water for 60 minutes. The perovskite@COF nanocomposite shows efficient visible-light-driven photocatalytic performance to degrade Methyl orange (10 mL; 20–100 ppm). The rate of photodegradation was about 0.245 min1 with high catalytic activity and recyclability for three to six cycles.

    Recently, the in situ polymerization process is widely employed as a robust fabrication tool for surpassing the intricacies related to the integration of PE in LPBs. Hence, in this review, we focus on the in situ polymerization processes that employ various polymerization methods (e.g., free-radical polymerization, ionic polymerization, electropolymerization, condensation polymerization, etc.), functional monomers and oligomers (e.g., acrylate, methacrylate, allyl and vinyl ethers, epoxides, etc.), and PE integration strategies for the fabrication of lithium (ion and metal) polymer batteries (LIPBs and LMPBs). Additionally, this review also evaluates the approaches that have been developed until now to implement the in situ processing of LPBs from large-sized pouch cells to flexible-/printable-batteries and even microbatteries.

    This study reports the electropolymerization of novel keto functionalized octaethyl metal porphyrins (Zn2+ and Ni2+) in the presence of 4,4?-bipyridine (4,4?-bpy) as a bridging nucleophile. The polymer films were characterized by electrochemical, spectroscopic (UV-Vis, XPS, FT-IR and Raman spectroscopy) and imaging (AFM and SEM) techniques. The absorption and electronic spectra confirm the presence of both porphyrin and 4,4?-bipyridine units in the film. The surface morphology reveals homogeneous film deposition with average roughness values of approx. 8 nm. The theoretical studies performed offered insights into the interplay of different metal centres (Zn2+ and Ni2+) and the keto functionality of the porphyrin unit in the formation of copolymer films. The electrochemical interaction of polymer films with CO2 suggests a reversible trap and release of CO2 with low energy barriers for both the polymers.

    Recently, Machine Learning (ML) has proven to yield fast and accurate predictions of chemical properties to accelerate the discovery of novel molecules and materials. The majority of the work is on organic molecules, and much more work needs to be done for inorganic molecules, especially clusters. In the present work, we introduce a simple Topological Atomic Descriptor called TAD, which encodes chemical environment information of each atom in the cluster. TAD is a simple and interpretable descriptor where each value represents the atom count in three shells. We also introduce the DART, Deep Learning Enabled Topological Interaction model, which uses TAD as a feature vector to predict energies of metal clusters, in our case Gallium clusters with size ranging from 31 to 70 atoms. DART model is designed based on the principle that energy is a function of atomic interactions and allows us to model these complex atomic interactions to predict the energy. We further introduce a new dataset called GNC_31-70, which comprises structures and DFT optimized energies of Gallium clusters with sizes ranging from 31 to 70 atoms. We show how DART can be used to accelerate the identification of ground-state structures without geometry optimization. Albeit using topological descriptor, DART achieves MAE of 3.59 kcal/mol (0.15 eV) on testset. We also show that our model can distinguish core and surface atoms in the Ga-70 cluster, which the model has never encountered earlier. Finally, we demonstrate the transferability of DART model by predicting energies for about 6k unseen configurations picked up from Molecular Dynamics (MD) data for three cluster sizes (46, 57, and 60) within seconds. The DART model was able to reduce the load on DFT optimizations while identifying unique low energy structures from MD data.

C., , (2021), DOI:https://doi.org/10.1021/acs.jpcc.0c10165.
    A systematic investigation of the electrocatalytic Methanol Oxidation Reaction (MOR) was carried out using a model Co:Pt alloy system with different compositions and structural arrangements of the Co and Pt atoms. The structural variations with the same alloy composition included those with disordered arrangement of Co and Pt atoms in a face-centered cubic (fcc) lattice and ordered arrangements in face-centered tetragonal (fct) lattices. Our investigations clearly show that structures with disordered arrangements with Co:Pt atomic ratios near to 1:1 display better electrocatalytic efficiencies even when compared to pure Pt. These experimental findings were then rationalized by means of Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations. Electronic level signatures in terms of charge transfer and relative shift in the peaks of the d band for surface metal atoms are proposed to be the reasons for the superior catalytic activity of a particular composition over the others. An increase in the number of inequivalent sites for methanol adsorption in disordered systems appears to result in better catalytic performance in comparison with ordered systems.

    IF: 4.189 (2019); The enhancement of the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) property of the plasmonic metal oxide semiconductor nanostructures by controlling their phase, shape, size, and oxygen vacancy to detect trace amounts of organics is of significant interest. In this study, a simple surfactant-free hydrothermal strategy was proposed to fabricate crystalline h-MoO3-x and o-MoO3-x nanomaterials with tunable plasmonic properties. Herein, the crystal phase, morphology, and oxygen vacancy of MoO3-x nanostructures were precisely controlled under suitable synthetic conditions. The plasmonic properties of the assynthesized h-MoO3-x and o-MoO3-x micro-/nanostructures were controlled by adjusting the residual volume in the autoclaving chamber. In addition, the plasmonic MoO3-x exhibited SERS activity with a detection limit as low as 1.0 × 10-9 M and the maximum enhancement factor (EF) up to 6.99 × 105 for h-MoO3-x, while for o-MoO3-x, the detection limit was 1.0 × 10-7 M with the corresponding EF up to 8.51 × 103, comparable with plasmonic noble metal nanomaterials without a “hot spot”.

    Nanoparticle (NP) patterning on a solid surface via nanofluid droplet evaporation is one of the most fascinating topics of research. Quite intriguingly, though a dose of excess ligand has been invariably included in all of the experimental studies that resulted in large-area NP patterns, the role of this excess ligand has been addressed inadequately in the modeling studies carried out so far. Addressing this, we have conducted systematic studies by including excess ligand both in our experiments and modeling, and correlated the results with each other. For this, we prepared nearly monodispersed thiolprotected gold nanoparticle dispersion in toluene and added calculated amounts of excess thiol before drop-casting it onto a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) grid. Subsequently, upon solvent evaporation, the patterns formed were imaged using conventional electron microscopy and analyzed with customized image processing tools, to perform statistically significant measurements. Our study demonstrates the ability of soluble excess ligand to induce NP aggregation under nonequilibrium condition, leading to large-area monolayer formation. These experimental results were then rationalized by Monte Carlo simulations, based on a modified coarse-grained two-dimensional (2D) lattice-gas model. We found that excess ligand facilitates NP spinodal phase separation under nonequilibrium conditions, largely governed by the interplay between ligand?solvent and nanoparticle?ligand interactions. Using power spectrum density analysis, we clearly demonstrate that these spatial patterns have fractal surface characteristics due to persistent fractional Brownian motion within subdiffusion limit.

    The fabrication of a dual-functional drug-containing porous polymeric scaffold by layer-by-layer surface modification involving citrate-stabilized gold nanoparticles and cisplatin molecules is being reported. These scaffolds were characterized by electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The capability of the scaffolds to release hydrated cisplatin in a slow and sustained manner over two days is established. Most importantly, the scaffolds turn nontoxic and cell-friendly after drug release, thus allowing the noncancerous fibroblast cells to adhere and proliferate (from 5000 cells to 16,000 cells in 6 days), becoming a potential solution toward an effective drug-carrying scaffold for volume-filling applications. The scaffold-mediated cancer cell killing and fibroblast cell proliferation were confirmed by fluorescence microscopy imaging, flow cytometry, and cell proliferation assays. We surmise that such a dual-purpose (drug-delivery and volume-filler) scaffold could help avoid the multiple surgical interventions needed for tumor surgery and cosmetic corrections. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first example of scaffolds with such a dual functionality which gets manifested in a sequential manner.

    Density functional theory (DFT) is currently one of the most accurate and yet practical theories used to gain insight into the properties of materials. Although successful, the computational cost required is still the main hurdle even today. In recent years, there has been a trend of combining DFT with Machine Learning (ML) to reduce the computational cost without compromising accuracy. Finding the right set of descriptors that are simple to understand in terms of giving insights about the problem at hand, lies at the heart of any ML problem. In this work, we demonstrate the use of nearest neighbor (NN) distances as descriptors to predict the interaction energy between the cluster and an adsorbate. The model is trained over a size range of 5 to 75 atom clusters. When the training and testing is carried out on mutually exclusive cluster sizes, the mean absolute error (MAE) in predicting the interaction energy is ? 0.24 eV. MAE reduces to 0.1 eV when testing and training sets include information from the complete range. Furthermore, when the same set of descriptors are tested over individual sizes, the MAE further reduces to ?0.05 eV. We bring out the correlation between dispersion in the nearest neighbor distances and variation in MAE for individual sizes. Our detailed and extensive DFT calculations provide a rationale as to why nearest neighbor distances work so well. Finally, we also demonstrate the transferability of the ML model by applying the same recipe of descriptors to systems of different elements like (Na10), bimetallic systems (Al6Ga6, Li4Sn6, and Au40Cu40) and also different adsorbates (N2, O2, and CO).

    Conversion type anode materials are intensely being studied for Li-ion batteries (LIBs) for their potentially higher capacities over current graphite-based anodes. This work describes the development of high capacity and stable anode from a nanocomposite of N and S co-doped Carbon spheres (NSCS) with Co3O4 (NSCS-Co3O4). Hydrothermal reaction of saccharose with L-cysteine has been carried out followed by its carbonization. CSs, when used as support for conversion type materials provide efficient electron/ion transfer channels enhancing the overall electrochemical performance of the electrodes. Additionally, hetero atoms doped in carbon matrix alter the electronic properties, often increasing the reactivity of the carbon surface and reported to be effective for anchoring metal oxide nanoparticles. Consequently, the NSCS-Co3O4nanocomposites developed in this work exhibit enhanced and stable reversible specific capacity over the cycling. Stable cycling behavior is observed at 1 Ag-1 with 1285 mAhg-1 of specific capacity retained after 350 cycles alongwith more than 99% of coulombic efficiency. This material shows an excellent rate capability with specific capacity retained to 745 mAhg-1 even at a high current density of 5 Ag-1. Detailed DFT based calculations have revealed the role of doped support in controlling the volume expansion upon lithiatio

    In this work, we propose a mixed metal oxide as a catalyst and demonstrate it's ability to not only activate the MeOH molecule upon adsorption but also dissociate O-H and one of it's C-H bonds. MeOH activation is compared on two prominent facets of \znalo~ viz. (220) and (311). While spontaneous O-H bond dissociation is observed on both facets, C-H bond dissociates only on the (311) surface. Multiple factors like atomic arrangement and steps on the surface, coordination of surface atoms, and their effective charges have a combined effect on MeOH activation. The (311) surface offers higher catalytic activity in comparison with (220) surface. Having a stepped surface, availability of multiple sites, and variation in the charge distribution are some of the reasons for better catalytic performance of (311) facet. Effect of orientation of MeOH with respect to the surface adds both, information and complexity to the problem. Observations pertinent to understanding this effect are also reported. A detailed analysis of atomic arrangement on the two surfaces provides a rationale as to why MeOH gets dissociated spontaneously on the mixed metal oxide. The promising results reported here opens up a new class of catalyst for research.

    IF: 2.109; Superparamagnetic cobalt ferrite (CFO) nanocrystals (NCs) with sizes ?6 nm and ?4 nm were synthesized using a facile solvothermal method using fatty acids, lauric acid and stearic acid, as the capping agents. The synthesized nanocrystals were well characterized by XRD, FT-IR, XPS, SEM and TEM. The formation mechanism was explored and it was shown that the fatty acid was actually chemisorbed as a carboxylate onto the surface of CFO NCs. The experimental results specify that the size and size distribution of the CFO NCs were highly dependent on the length of fatty acid hydrophobic chain. Corresponding changes of the magnetic properties were investigated by measuring magnetization as a function of field and temperature, which suggest that the CFO NCs were superparamagnetic in nature. The catalytic properties for the oxidation of styrene in organic medium were examined by using the synthesized CFO NCs with sizes ?6 nm and ?4 nm. The synthesized CFO NCs, well dispersible in organic media, were demonstrated to be highly catalytically active, reached 100% conversion of styrene in 12 h with ?77% and ?82% selectivity for styrene oxide respectively. The magnetic CFO nanocatalysts were easily separated and recovered from the reaction medium by an external magnet, and reused for several cycles without losing catalytic selectivity for styrene oxide.

    IF: 6.707; In this work, a facile controlled synthesis of plasmonic photocatalyst, Ag@AgCl hollow cubic cage with the tuning of nanoframe structures was reported. AgCl cubical hollow nanoframes were primarily prepared using sacrificial NaCl template protocol. Ion exchange reaction between Ag+ in the solution and NaCl, in presence of poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) led to continuous nucleation followed by growth of AgCl on the surface of sacrificial NaCl template. The tuning of AgCl nanoframe structures was obtained by changing the AgNO3 concentration in the reactions. Afterwards, ethylene glycol assisted reduction of AgCl, produced Ag@AgCl, the metal@semiconductor composite with the homogeneous distribution of Ag nanoparticles on the surface of the AgCl hollow nanoframes. Efficient sunlight-driven photocatalytic activity to degrade Methylene blue (MB) (50 mL; 10 mg/L) with these Ag@AgCl hollow frames was also demonstrated. The plasmonic photocatalysts were exhibited photodegradation rates about 0.098–0.184 min?1 with high catalytic activity and recyclability for five cycles. Additionally, active species entrapping experiments were performed and a possible mechanism for the enhanced photocatalytic performance of the synthesized plasmonic photocatalyst was also proposed.
