    ABSTRACT: A novel poorly crystalline hydroxyapatite (HAP) nanomaterial was developed for methylene blue (MB) removal from aqueous solution. Surface functionality, crystallinity, and morphology of the synthetic adsorbent were characterized and the potential of poorly crystalline HAP nanoparticles for MB removal was evaluated. Results indicated that poorly crystalline HAP nanoparticles possessed good adsorption ability to MB. The adsorption process was fast, and it reached a steady state after only 2 min. MB removal was increased with an increasing amount of adsorbent dosage but decreased as the ionic strength increased. It was worth noting that the presence of humic acid significantly promoted the adsorption of MB by poorly crystalline HAP. While the adsorption was favorable at higher pH and lower temperature, and the equilibrium data were well fitted by the Freundlich isotherm. The maximum adsorption capacity was estimated to be 14.27 mg/g. Thermodynamic parameters suggested that the adsorption was a typical physical process, spontaneous, and exothermic in nature. The mechanisms for the adsorption of MB on poorly crystalline HAP may include electrostatic attraction, hydrogen bonding, and Lewis acid-base interaction. Regeneration studies exhibited that HAP could be recyclable for a long term. The obtained results indicated that poorly crystalline HAP nanoparticles can be used as a biocompatible and effective adsorbent to remove MB from water.

    ABSTRACT: ZnO complex microstructures were deposited onto interdigitated metallic electrodes by electrospraying. Simple methods, such as wet chemical precipitation and optical lithography, were used for the synthesis of flower-like and snowflake-like ZnO structures and for the preparation of interdigitated metallic electrodes, respectively. The electrosprayed ZnO particles preserve the structural, optical and morphological properties of the chemically synthesized ZnO powders. During the electrospraying process, the ZnO microstructures form bridges between the interdigitated metallic electrodes leading to electrical contacting. Changes in the electron transport through the ZnO microstructures are evidenced by their exposure to ammonia or their passivation with poly(methyl methacrylate). Merging such easy-scalable and low-cost techniques, devices based on electrosprayed complex ZnO structures can be designed.

    ABSTRACT: Nanocrystalline metastable hexagonal and thermodynamically stable orthorhombic MoO3were successfully synthesized by precipitation, and calcined at various temperatures in the range 200-500ºC. The influence of calcination temperature on crystal structure, crystallite size, thermal properties, morphology, optical properties, and photochromic properties was determined. The 432ºC phase transformation temperature of hexagonal flower-like MoO3to an orthorhombic platelet structure was determined. The band gap energy of MoO3 varied from 3.13 to 3.20 eV, depending on calcination temperature. The photochromic properties were determined with UV irradiation and CIE Lab colour system. The hexagonal MoO3 from low temperature calcination had an about seven-fold photochromic efficiency relative to orthorhombic MoO3.
