Title: Simultaneous determination of hydrazine and phenyl hydrazine using 4′-(4-carboxyphenyl)-2,2′:6′,2″ terpyridine diacetonitrile triphenylphosphine ruthenium(II) tetrafluoroborate complex functionalized multiwalled carbon nanotubes modified electrode

Abstract

Highlights: • A nanocomposite of ruthenium(II) terpyridine, triphenylphosphine based complex and multiwalled carbon nanotubes have been used first time for simultaneous detection of hydrazine and phenyl hydrazine. • The detection limit reported is lower as compared to other reported works. • The paper also focuses towards effect of ligand variation attached to ruthenium(II) terpyridine based complexes complex for the hydrazine and phenyl hydrazine detection. • Nanocomposite does not involve any biological entity hence high stability. - Abstract: A nanocomposite based on the incorporation of the complex 4′-(4-carboxyphenyl)-2,2′:6′,2″ terpyridine triphenylphosphine diacetonitrile ruthenium(II) tetrafluoroborate with multiwalled carbon nanotubes and ionomer supported upon a glassy carbon electrode substrate is reported and characterized with scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy and infrared spectroscopy. The electrochemical behavior and stability of the composite electrode was investigated via cyclic voltammetry. The modified electrode exhibits an electro-catalytic activity towards the oxidation of both hydrazine and phenyl hydrazine in 0.1 M phosphate buffer solution (PBS, pH 7.4). The oxidation of hydrazine and phenyl hydrazine occurs at 0.81 V and 0.32 V with limit of detection found to be 3.7 × 10{sup −7} M and 1.15 × 10{sup −7} M and having a linear range from 5 × 10{sup −6}more » M to 6.5 × 10{sup −3} M, and 5 × 10{sup −6} M to 0.2 × 10{sup −3} M, respectively.« less

  • To create new catalyst materials for fuel cell applications, multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were functionalized with -C=O, -C-O-C-, -COO-, and -C-OH groups using a sonochemical treatment method under acidic aqueous solution (HNO{sub 3}/H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}) conditions to make them amenable to deposition of highly dispersed, {approx}4 nm diameter Pt nanoparticles. The Pt-CNT interface was probed with X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), extended X-ray absorption fine structure spectroscopy (EXAFS), and Raman and attenuated total reflection infrared (ATR-IR) spectroscopies to elucidate the nature of the Pt cluster-CNT surface binding. The degree of disorder of the sp{sup 3}-hybridized C from the CNTs, as measuredmore » by the Raman D-to-G integrated peak area ratios, increased with the degree of surface oxidation of the CNTs. EXAFS of the Pt LIII edge showed Pt coordination with oxygen (in the form of PtOx) at the outermost perimeter of the Pt clusters while the majority of the bulk, as shown by the XPS Pt 4f core level, was in the metallic form. Infrared measurements showed that the carbonyl C=O stretching at 1700 cm{sup -1} red shifted to {approx}1550 cm{sup -1} following Pt cluster deposition. In addition, changes in the C-O structural features at {approx}1030 and 1150 cm{sup -1} were observed, indicative of Pt cluster binding with the ionic form of carboxylate, COO(Pt), or ester-like, C(=O)CO(Pt), O atoms.« less
  • Single (SWNTs) and multiwalled (MWNTs) carbon nanotubes were functionalized with a titanium alkoxide catalyst through a Diels-Alder cycloaddition reaction. The catalyst-functionalized carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were used for the surface initiated titanium-mediated coordination polymerizations of L-lactide (L-LA), -caprolactone (-CL) and n-hexyl isocyanate (HIC) employing the grafting from technique. 1H NMR, IR and Raman spectra showed that the precursor catalyst was successfully synthesized and covalently attached on the CNTs surface. Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) revealed that the grafted poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) content could be controlled with time. The final polymer-grafted CNTs were readily dissolved in organic solvents as compared to the insoluble pristine andmore » catalyst-functionalized CNTs. The presence of thick layers of polymers around the CNTs was observed through transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) proved that the glass transition (Tg) and melting (Tm) temperatures of the PLLA are affected by the presence of the CNTs, while PLLA R-helix conformation remains intact, as revealed by the circular dichroism (CD) spectra.« less
  • Chemoresistive sensors based on multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) functionalized with SnO 2 nanocrystals (NCs) have great potential for detecting trace gases at low concentrations (single ppm levels) at room temperature, because the SnO 2 nanocrystals act as active sites for the chemisorption of gas molecules, and carbon nanotubes (CNTs) act as an excellent current carrying platform, allowing the adsorption of gas on SnO 2 to modulate the resistance of the CNTs. However, uniform conjugation of SnO 2 NCs with MWCNTs is challenging. An effective atomic layer deposition based approach to functionalize the surface of MWCNTs with SnO 2 NCs, resultingmore » in a novel CH 4 sensor with 10 ppm sensitivity, is presented in this paper. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive x-ray spectroscopy, and Raman spectroscopy were implemented to study the morphology, elemental composition, and the crystal quality of SnO 2 functionalized MWCNTs. High resolution TEM images showed that the crystal quality of the functionalizing SnO 2 NCs was of high quality with clear lattice fringes and the dimension almost three times smaller than shown thus far in literature. A lift-off based photolithography technique comprising bilayer photoresists was optimized to fabricate SnO 2 functionalized MWCNTs-based chemoresistor sensor, which at room temperature can reliably sense below 10 ppm of CH4 in air. Such low level gas sensitivity, with significant reversible relative resistance change, is believed to be the direct result of the successful functionalization of the MWCNT surface by SnO 2 NCs.« less
