    Abstract: A plasma treatment has been used to modify the surface of BNNTs. In one example, the surface of the BNNT has been modified using ammonia plasma to include amine functional groups. Amine functionalization allows BNNTs to be soluble in chloroform, which had not been possible previously. Further functionalization of amine-functionalized BNNTs with thiol-terminated organic molecules has also been demonstrated. Gold nanoparticles have been self-assembled at the surface of both amine- and thiol-functionalized boron nitride Nanotubes (BNNTs) in solution. This approach constitutes a basis for the preparation of highly functionalized BNNTs and for their utilization as nanoscale templates for assembly and integration with other nanoscale materials.

  • Publication number: 20120027937
    Abstract: Novel cyclic amides containing tin or lead are disclosed. These cyclic amides can be used for atomic layer deposition or chemical vapor deposition of tin or lead as well as their oxides, sulfides, selenides, nitrides, phosphides, carbides, silicides or borides or other compounds. Tin(IV) oxide, SnO2, films were deposited by reaction of a cyclic tin amide vapor and H2O2 or NO2 as oxygen sources. The films have high purity, smoothness, transparency, electrical conductivity, density, and uniform thickness even inside very narrow holes or trenches. Deposition temperatures are low enough for thermally sensitive substrates such as plastics. Suitable applications of these films include displays, light-emitting diodes, solar cells and gas sensors. Doping SnO2 with aluminum was used to reduce its conductivity, making material suitable as the active semiconductor layer in electron multipliers or transparent transistors.

  • Publication number: 20120016127
    Abstract: The invention at hand describes Cu-(II)-oxygen adduct complexes, which are stable at room temperature, as well as methods for their production. In this, compounds of the general formula [L-Cu—O—O—Cu-L](BAr4)2 are concerned. Here, BAr4? is a tetraarylborate anion, selected from tetraphenylborate and tetrakis(3,5-trifluoromethyl)phenylborate. L represents a tripodal tetradentate ligand, wherein, each of the four binding sites of the tripodal tetradentate ligand is a nitrogen atom. Each of the three podal ligands is suitable for comprising an aliphatic amine or a nitrogen-containing heteroaromatic compound independently of one another. A bridge of one to four carbon atoms is located between the central nitrogen atom and the nitrogen atom of each of the podal ligands. The Cu-(II)-oxygen adduct complexes according to the present invention are produced, by initially reacting the ligand L with a Cu-(I) salt to [Cu-L]X.
