Title: A generic method of visible light sensitization for perovskite-related layered oxides: Substitution effect of lead

Abstract

Nearly complete substitution of lead into layered perovskites is a generic method of visible light sensitization for these ultraviolet (UV)-active materials. Thus, CaBi{sub 4}Ti{sub 4}O{sub 15} (Aurivillius phase), K{sub 0.5}La{sub 0.5}Ca{sub 1.5}Nb{sub 3}O{sub 1} (Dion-Jacobson phase), and Sr{sub 3}Ti{sub 2}O{sub 7} (Ruddlesden-Popper phase) are photocatalysts, all working under UV light, but their analogs containing lead (PbBi{sub 4}Ti{sub 4}O{sub 15}, K{sub 0.5}La{sub 0.25}Bi{sub 0.25}Ca{sub 0.75}Pb{sub 0.75}Nb{sub 3}O{sub 1}, and PbTiO{sub 3}) absorb visible light and exhibit photocatalytic activity of decomposition of water under visible light.

  • We investigate the surface plasmon resonances (SPRs) behavior of silver niobate (AgNbO{sub 3}) experimentally and theoretically. Result shows that the localized SPRs (LSPRs) of AgNbO{sub 3} combining with its interband transitions enlarge the absorption band across the whole ultraviolet-visible range. The LSPRs behavior in visible-light is mainly ascribed to the metal-like state of silver ion and self-assembled microstructures of AgNbO{sub 3} microcrystal. The ab initio density functional theory calculations are carried out to obtain the further insight of the SPRs behaviors. Theoretical study indicates that the Ag atoms are weakly bound in the perovskite structure, leading to a metal-like state,more » which was the key factor to SPRs behavior of AgNbO{sub 3}.« less
  • Violet electroluminescence is rare in both inorganic and organic light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Low-cost and room- temperature solution-processed lead halide perovskites with high- efficiency and color-tunable photoluminescence are promising for LEDs. Here, we report room-temperature color-pure violet LEDs based on a two-dimensional lead halide perovskite material, namely, 2-phenylethylammonium (C 6H 5CH 2CH 2NH 3 +, PEA) lead bromide [(PEA) 2PbBr 4]. The natural quantum confinement of two-dimen- sional layered perovskite (PEA) 2PbBr 4 allows for photoluminescence of shorter wavelength (410 nm) than its three-dimensional counterpart. By converting as-deposited polycrystalline thin films to micrometer-sized (PEA) 2PbBr 4 nanoplates using solvent vapor annealing,more » we successfully integrated this layered perovskite material into LEDs and achieved efficient room-temperature violet electroluminescence at 410 nm with a narrow bandwidth. This conversion to nanoplates significantly enhanced the crystallinity and photophysical properties of the (PEA) 2PbBr 4 samples and the external quantum efficiency of the violet LED. Finally, the solvent vapor annealing method reported herein can be generally applied to other perovskite materials to increase their grain size and, ultimately, improve the performance of optoelectronic devices based on perovskite materials.« less

  • The magnetic properties and the magnetocaloric effect are presented for the perovskite-related oxide SrFe{sub 0.5}Co{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} prepared using electrochemical oxidation. SrFe{sub 0.5}Co{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} exhibits a second order paramagnetic-ferromagnetic transition close to room temperature (T{sub C}=330 K). The maximal magnetic entropy change {Delta}S{sub M}{sup Max} , the maximal adiabatic temperature change {Delta}T{sub ad} and the refrigerant capacity are found to be equal to respectively 4.0 J/kgK, 1.8 K and 258 J/kg while raising the B-field change from 0 to 5 T. - Graphical Abstract: Moderate but reversible magnetocaloric properties are associated with the 2nd order paramagnetic to ferromagnetic phasemore » transition exhibited at 330 K. A metal-like behavior is seen for the first time on the ferromagnetic regime. Highlights: Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Both Fe{sup 4+} and Co{sup 4+} are stabilized on perovskite-related phase SrFe{sub 0.5}Co{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} using electrochemical oxidation. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer Its crystallographic structure is cubic. Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer SrFe{sub 0.5}Co{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} is metal-like/ferromagnetic below 330 K Black-Right-Pointing-Pointer SrFe{sub 0.5}Co{sub 0.5}O{sub 3} exhibits magnetocaloric properties associated with the sharp paramagnetic to ferromagnetic phase transition.« less
  • The Ni-Al layered double hydroxides (LDHs) with Ni/Al molar ratio of 2, 3, and 4 were prepared by coprecipitation and treated under hydrothermal conditions at 180 deg. C for times up to 20 h. Thermal decomposition of the prepared samples was studied using thermal analysis and high-temperature X-ray diffraction. Hydrothermal treatment increased significantly the crystallite size of coprecipitated samples. The characteristic LDH diffraction lines disappeared completely at ca. 350 deg. C and a gradual crystallization of NiO-like mixed oxide was observed at higher temperatures. Hydrothermal treatment improved thermal stability of the Ni2Al and Ni3Al LDHs but only a slight effectmore » of hydrothermal treatment was observed with the Ni4Al sample. The Rietveld refinement of powder XRD patterns of calcination products obtained at 450 deg. C showed a formation of Al-containing NiO-like oxide and a presence of a considerable amount of Al-rich amorphous component. Hydrothermal aging of the LDHs resulted in decreasing content of the amorphous component and enhanced substitution of Al cations into NiO-like structure. The hydrothermally treated samples also exhibited a worse reducibility of Ni{sup 2+} components. The NiAl{sub 2}O{sub 4} spinel and NiO still containing a marked part of Al in the cationic sublattice were detected in the samples calcined at 900 deg. C. The Ni2Al LDHs hydrothermally treated for various times and related mixed oxides obtained at 450 deg. C showed an increase in pore size with increasing time of hydrothermal aging. The hydrothermal treatment of LDH precursor considerably improved the catalytic activity of Ni2Al mixed oxides in N{sub 2}O decomposition, which can be explained by suppressing internal diffusion effect in catalysts grains. - Graphical Abstract: Hydrothermal treatment of Ni-Al LDH precursors influenced the porous structure of related mixed oxides and considerably improved their catalytic activity in N{sub 2}O decomposition; the higher catalytic activity of hydrothermally treated samples can be explained by suppressing internal diffusion effect in catalysts grains.« less
