    Nowadays, there is a need for a paradigm shift in material selection for surface coatings so as to meet the requirements of advanced systems. Polyhedral oligomeric silsesquioxanes (POSS) are three-dimensional networks with a silica-like core covered by an organic shell, a promising nanosized structure for organic coatings. The use of POSS structures in coating materials has experienced an almost erratic

    This research studied the comprehensive dielectric properties of copper (Cu)/polyethylene terephthalate (PET) and copper/polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) composite films under the influence of copper nanoparticle (CuNP) sputtering time. Copper thin film was grown on flexible PET and PTFE using the ion beam sputtering technique. X-ray diffraction confirmed that CuNPs had been successfully synthesized

    Herein, an approach was carried out toward in situ synthesis of chitosan-mediated silver (Ag) nanoparticles (AgNPs) on merino wool fabrics (MWFs) and its utilization as colored textile, antibacterial material and removable substrate after toxic dye reduction. The investigation on the as-produced products (AgNPs@MWFs) indicates that AgNPs were successfully assembled on the MWF surface through efficient

    Highly efficient, non-precious and stable electrocatalysts for both oxygen (O2) reduction reaction (ORR) and oxygen evolution reaction (OER) have drawn attention as alternatives to noble-metal catalysts. The rational construction of dual-functional catalysts is meaningful because most nanomaterials can perform only a single electrocatalytic activity. Herein, nitrogen (N)-doped carbon (C) nanotubes

  • Novel approach to enhancing remineralization of tooth surface by magnetic field exposure

    Modern dentistry is directed toward overcoming dental caries progression in the early stages with the aid of remineralizing agents. Long-established remineralizing agents have very slow kinetics to be applicable, and the need for an external cofactor is a must. In the present work, the authors improved the kinetics of dentin/enamel remineralization by magnetic field exposure whereby calcium (Ca2+)

    Perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have attracted tremendous attention due to their rapid growth in efficiency and low cost. In this work, an effective perovskite material was developed by the interaction of chloride (Cl−) ions and dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Crystal nucleus formation was enhanced, and the crystallization was delayed by adding a moderate amount of chloride ions to the (FAPbI3)0.85(MAPbBr3)0

    The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of hydrophobicity, surface chemistry and topography on bacterial and microalgal adhesion. To this end, the effects of surface plasma treatments (argon (Ar) and tetrafluorocarbon (CF4)) of polycarbonate substrates on bioadhesion were investigated in vitro. Surfaces were characterized by goniometry, atomic force microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy

    Babak Ghorbanian; Mohammad Tajally; Seyed Mohammad Mousavi Khoie; Hossein Tavakoli

    Aluminum (Al) alloys are used widely in the automotive and aerospace industries, but their corrosion resistance is insufficient in long-term service, particularly in a high-salinity environment. The incorporation of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) particles into plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) coatings formed on an aluminum alloy was investigated in this work. After oxidation, the coatings were investigated

    As one common industrial waste liquid, waste copper (Cu) etchant can seriously pollute the environment if it is unreasonably managed. Herein, tetrahedron-like copper (I) chloride (CuCl) crystals were extracted from waste copper etchant by way of facile electrodeposition, and the effect of the electrodeposition time on the lithium (Li)-storage capacity of the copper (I) chloride crystal was further

    DongZhi Zhu; YuLi Di; ZongJian Chai; XiaoDong Zhu; Shanhua Chen; Lin Deng

    Bismuth (III) (Bi3+) and chloride (Cl−) ion co-doped Li3V1·97Bi0·03(PO4)3−x Cl x /carbon (C) compounds (x = 0·03, 0·05, 0·07, 0·09) were prepared by way of a simple sol–gel method. The X-ray diffraction patterns proved that a small amount of bismuth (III) and chloride ion doping does not change the crystal structure of lithium vanadium phosphate (Li3V2(PO4)3). Charge/discharge results showed that bismuth

  • Effect of tungsten doping on the performance of MAO coatings on a Ti6Al4V drill pipe

    Xiaowen Chen; Dandan Liao; Xuan Jiang; Defen Zhang; Taihe Shi

    A tungsten (W)-doped microarc oxidation (MAO) coating on a TC4 titanium (Ti) alloy drill pipe was prepared by adding sodium tungstate (Na2WO4) into electrolytes. The effects of adding different concentrations on the electrical conductivity of the electrolyte and the performance and structure of MAO coatings on the titanium alloy drill pipe were studied. The electrical conductivity of the solution was

    In this study, atmospheric plasma spraying was used for the preparation of a CoNiCrAlY bonding layer on a nickel (Ni)-based superalloy with different laser shock times designed for surface modification. In addition, electron-beam physical vapor deposition was used to deposit a ceramic layer to form a new modified coating. When comparing high-temperature oxidation resistance with mechanical properties

    Surf. Innov. (IF 2.845) Pub Date : 2020-08-13
    Yonghao Dong; Aiqiong Ma; Dian Zhang; Yunqin Gao; Hongfei Li

    In the present work, α-bismuth (III) oxide (α-Bi2O3) photocatalysts with a porous and nanosheet structure were prepared by using the biomimetic-synthesis-assisted hydrothermal method. l-Arginine (C6H14N4O2) was used as the biomimetic template, and the pH value range of the precursor solution was 3–12. The as-obtained samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, field-emission scanning electron

    The aim of this work was to achieve improved dispersibility of hydrophobic dry lubricants in aqueous media through plasma activation. As a result, the use of wet-chemical environmentally questionable substances – for example, certain surfactants – to ensure the dispersibility of such particles can be avoided. These plasma-activated particles can be further embedded in electroless nickel (Ni) coatings

    In the present study, phytic acid was used as an environmentally sustainable phosphorus-containing flame retardant (FR) to improve the flammability of cotton fabrics. The facile preparation approach is adequate for offering an intumescent FR system for cotton, as phytic acid and triethanolamine could serve as the acid source and blowing agent, respectively, and a cellulose substrate may function as

    Surf. Innov. (IF 2.845) Pub Date : 2020-04-20
    Wenhao Wang; Kelvin W K Yeung

    A variety of bioinorganic ions have been reported to alter different cellular functions, including the transport of potassium (K+) and calcium (Ca2+) ions, while also modulating signal transduction, energy metabolism and cell proliferation due to the electro-potential change of the cell membrane. It was recently reported that the presence of such bivalent cations in the bone system is beneficial to

    Malgorzata Sikora-Jasinska; Ehsan Mostaed; Jeremy Goldman; Jaroslaw W Drelich

    Understanding the surface interactions and reactivity of zinc (Zn)-based biomaterials with constituents of physiological fluids such as proteins and ions is essential for an accurate evaluation of biomaterial corrosion initiation and progression. In this paper, the effect of the albumin addition on the corrosion behavior of pure Zn and Zn–4Ag alloy is discussed. The corrosion behavior of Zn-based materials

    Ideal hydrogels for tissue engineering applications should mimic the properties of native extracellular matrices and optimize the cell behavior. Silk fibroin (SF) that possesses tunable mechanical strength and low cytotoxicity and elastin protein that stimulates cell viability are complementary for hybrid hydrogels. Here, hydrolyzed elastin peptide (HEP) and reconstituted SF (RSF) are combined to generate

    Ruiqing Hou; Frank Feyerabend; Regine Willumeit-Römer

    To understand the magnesium (Mg) degradation mechanism in vivo, a variety of in vitro investigations have been conducted. However, there is still a gap between in vitro results and in vivo observations. Herein, the combined effect of proteins and medium-flow conditions on magnesium degradation was studied. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) and fetal bovine serum (FBS) were employed as the commonly used protein

    Silver nanoparticles (AgNP) are promising candidates for fighting drug-resistant infections because of their intrinsic antimicrobial effect. The design of high-yield antimicrobial molecules may inadvertently cause variation in host cells' biological responses. While many factors affect AgNPs' efficacy, their surface is exposed to the biological environment and thus plays a critical role in both the
