  • Stable iron nanoparticles have been synthesised by the decomposition of (Fe(N[Si(CH{sub 3}){sub 3}]{sub 2}){sub 2}){sub 2} under dihydrogen pressure. Those conditions lead to a system of monodisperse and metallic nanoparticles which diameter is less than 2 nm and stabilized by HN[Si(CH{sub 3}){sub 3}]{sub 2}. The magnetization is found to be M{sub S}=1.92{mu}{sub B}/at., i.e., 10% lower than the bulk value. The Moessbauer spectrum is fitted by two contributions of metallic iron. The magnetic anisotropy energy constant increases up to 5.2x10{sup 5} J/m{sup 3}, i.e., ten times the bulk one.
  • Radiolytic reduction of silver and gold ions and subsequent formation of their aggregates have been studied in propan-2-ol:cyclohexane mixture using pulse radiolysis technique. The silver sol, produced on irradiation of Ag{sup +} solution with a train of electron pulses, has been characterized using XRD and TEM. The size of the particles has been found to be in the range of 30-50 nm. The silver sol emit light with a maximum at 340 nm on irradiation with a high energy electron beam. The intensity of emission has been found to decrease with decrease in concentration of Ag particles. Formation of colloidalmore » gold has also been observed on irradiation of NAuCl{sub 4} solution in propan-2-ol:cyclohexane by train of electron pulses. The particles so formed are oxidized on exposure to air. No light emission has been observed from Au sol.« less
  • Ultrabright ultrasmall ({similar_to}1 nm) blue luminescent Si{sub 29} nanoparticles are chlorinated by reaction with Cl{sub 2} gas. A Si{endash}N linkage is formed by the reaction of the chlorinated particles with the functional amine group in butylamine. Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and x-ray photospectroscopy measurements confirm the N linkage and the presence of the butyl group, while emission, excitation, and autocorrelation femtosecond optical spectroscopy show that, after the linkage formation, the particles with the ultrabright blue luminescent remain, but with a redshift of 40 nm. {copyright} 2001 American Institute of Physics.
  • The synthesis of catalytically useful, ultrasmall oxide nanoparticles (NPs) of group 5 and 6 metals is not readily achievable through reported methods. Here in this work, we introduce a one-pot, two-precursor synthesis route to <2 nm MO x NPs in which a polyoxometalate salt is decomposed thermally in a high-boiling organic solvent oleylamine. The use of ammonium metatungstate resulted in oleylamine-coated, crystalline WO x NPs at consistently high yields of 92 ± 5%. The semicrystalline NPs contained 20–36 WO x structural units per particle, as determined from aberration-corrected high-resolution scanning transmission electron microscopy, and an organic coating of 16–20 oleylaminemore » molecules, as determined by thermogravimetric analysis. The NPs had a mean size of 1.6 ± 0.3 nm, as estimated from atomic force microscopy and small-angle X-ray scattering measurements. Carrying out the synthesis in the presence of organic oxidant trimethylamine N-oxide led to smaller WO x NPs (1.0 ± 0.4 nm), whereas the reductant 1,12-dodecanediol led to WO x nanorods (4 ± 1 nm × 20 ± 5 nm). Lastly, these findings provide a new method to control the size and shape of transition metal oxide NPs, which will be especially useful in catalysis.« less
