Title: A new metal-organic hybrid material with intrinsic resistance-based bistability: monitoring in situ room temperature switching behavior

Abstract

Two new silver containing materials with TCNQ derivatives were prepared by electrocrystallization. Synchrotron radiation diffraction studies were conducted to determine the structures of the new phases which exhibit unprecedented high room temperature conductivity. The I–V characteristics reveal a room-temperature switching behaviour and memory effect based on intrinsic negative differential resistance (NDR). EPR spectroscopic measurements performed under an applied electric field indicate a g-tensor shift that is correlated to the amplitude of current.

  • Graphene based micro-supercapacitors (MSCs) have been extensively studied in recent years; however, few of them report room temperature fabricating methods for flexible MSC. Here we developed a convenient procedure based on simultaneous self-assembly and reduction of graphene oxide (GO) on Cu/Au interdigit at room temperature. The as-produced MSC shows a specific areal capacitance of 0.95 mF cm(-2) and maintains 98.3% after 11,000 cycles of charge and discharge. Extremely small relaxation time constants of 1.9 ms in aqueous electrolyte and 4.8 ms in gelled electrolyte are achieved. Also the device shows great flexibility and retains 93.5% of the capacitance after 5000more » times of bending and twisting tests. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.« less
  • Through changing the metal ions, two Keggin polyoxometalates-based hybrid compounds, [Cu{sub 5}(pz){sub 6}(Cl)(SiW{sub 12}O{sub 40})] (1) and [Ag{sub 4}(pz){sub 3}(H{sub 2}O){sub 2}(SiW{sub 12}O{sub 40})] (2) (pz=pyrazine), were hydrothermally synthesized and characterized by an elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, thermogravimetric analyses, and single X-ray diffraction. In compound 1, the metal-organic motif exhibits a 6{sup 3} topological 2-D sheet, which is further fused by the [SiW{sub 12}O{sub 40}]{sup 4-} anions to construct a (6.7.8)(6{sup 3}.7.8{sup 2})(6{sup 3})(6{sup 5}.7)(6{sup 5}.8) topological 3D structure. In compound 2, the bridging groups Ag{sub 2}(pz) connect the [SiW{sub 12}O{sub 40}]{sup 4-} anions to form a (5{sup 3}){sub 2}(5{supmore » 4}.8{sup 2}) topological 2-D layer, which is further linked by an [Ag(pz)]{sub n}{sup n+} chains to construct a 3D structure with the (3{sup 4}.4{sup 16}.5{sup 24}.6{sup 12}.7{sup 8}.8{sup 2})(3{sup 4}.4{sup 6}.5{sup 4}.6){sub 2}(4.5{sup 2}){sub 2} topology. It represents the highest connected network topology presently known for the polyoxometalates system. The structure differences of compounds 1 and 2 reveal that the coordination numbers and geometries of the metal ions have a great influence on the final structure and topology of the Keggin POMs-based hybrid compounds. In addition, the electrochemistry properties of the two compounds have been studied. -- Graphical Abstract: Two new highly connected Keggin POMs-based hybrids have been synthesized by changing metal ions under hydrothermal conditions and the effect of metal ions on the final structure and topology of the POMs-based hybrid compounds was discussed.

  • In the present work, a chiral layered derivative of γ-zirconium phosphate (γ-ZrP) containing L-(+)-phosphoserine (γ-ZrP-PS*) covalently attached to inorganic layers has been prepared by means of topotactic exchange reaction. This organic–inorganic derivative is characterized by X-ray diffractometry, Solid {sup 13}C–NMR and FT-IR spectrophotometries and thermal analyses. A maximum level of topotactic replacement of 20% is achieved. Under both the acidic environment of the interlayer region of γ-ZrP and the acidic synthesis conditions, the hydrolysis of the ester bond of PS* is expected to take place to some extent. For this reason, it was impossible to exceed the recent percentage, whichmore » in turn reflects the relative moderate stability of the above mentioned bond under these conditions. In order to be more certain with regard to an expected further hydrolysis for this bond after separation, a sample of γ-ZrP-PS* was stored in a desiccator over a saturated solution of BaCl{sub 2} (90% relative humidity) for three months, and then the sample re-analyzed once again. Surprisingly, the results show that the sample still keeps almost the same level of exchange (i.e., 20%). Second, it is revealed that the sample almost gives the same spectroscopic and thermal behavior. This could be attributed to the less acidic character of the partially exchanged inorganic layers of the sample in comparison with that of the precursor γ-ZrP. Therefore, the PS* molecules persist and stay there into the interlayer gallery without further hydrolysis. - Graphical abstract: • Red: oxygen • White: zirconium • Cyan: carbon • Yellow: phosphorus • Blue: nitrogen. Highlights: • L-(+)-Phosphoserine (PS*) is exchanged with γ-ZrP by means of topotactic exchange. • The maximum exchange level is 20%. • γ-ZrP is functionalized with chiral amino acid group. • γ-ZrP-PS* has large chiral space for huge guest molecules to be intercalated.« less
  • An investigation was carried out to determine the growth kinetics of [gamma][prime] precipitates in a newly developed single-crystal nickel-base superalloy containing rhenium (CMSX-4G). The investigation also examined the influence of [gamma][prime] precipitates (size and distribution) on fatigue crack growth behavior of the material in a room-temperature ambient atmosphere. The influence of load ratio on fatigue threshold of the material and crack growth mechanisms in fatigue was also studied. Compact tension specimens were prepared from a single-crystal nickel-base superalloy, CMSX-4G, with the <001> crystallographic direction. These specimens were given two different heat treatments to produce two different [gamma][prime] size precipitates. Fatiguemore » crack growth behavior of these materials was studied at three different load ratios (R = 0.10, 0.50, and 0.90) in room-temperature ambient atmosphere. The results of the present investigation demonstrate that rhenium additions in CMSX-4G substantially lowers the [gamma][prime] coarsening kinetics of this alloy. The smaller [gamma][prime] precipitate size was found to be beneficial for fatigue resistance and has resulted in a higher fatigue threshold and lower fatigue crack growth rate in the threshold region. The fatigue threshold was found to decrease with an increase in load ratio. The crack growth mechanism in the threshold region was found to occur by a combination of microvoid coalescence and striations.« less
  • We study theoretically and experimentally the propagation of light beams in chiral nematic liquid crystals. Despite the rather complex refractive index distribution of these crystals, their reorientational nonlinearity can compensate for diffraction, leading to robust solitonlike beams propagating along helical trajectories. We demonstrate that, due to a symmetry-breaking instability of the liquid crystal structure, these beams undergo abrupt switching and bistability, features that are of potential interest for applications to all-optical signal processing.
