A literature review is a critical analysis of scholarly works that provide information on a specific topic. It is a collection of relevant publications and lets the readers know what work has already been done on a particular topic. It analyzes the mentioned literature and shows possible relationships between them. A literature review at the postgr...
3D graphene and its derivatives have attracted widespread attention as novel material for the adsorption and photocatalysis of wastewater contaminants. Because of unique physicochemical properties and easy regeneration abilities, it can be an excellent and most efficient material for the treatment of water pollutants. 3D graphene aerogels have been...
Mesoporous CuS nanospheres (CuS-NS) decorated reduced graphene oxide (rGO) aerogel composite (3D CuS-NS/rGO) was prepared by chemical reduction process and used for the synergistic removal of Cr(VI) and cationic dyes. The porosity of the as prepared samples was determined by Bruner-Emmet-Teller (BET) surface Area. Structural and morphological prope...

Fused filament fabrication (FFF) with thermoplastic filaments is the most popular 3D printing technology. The continuous polymer filaments undergo a series of thermal processes, including heating, melting, cooling, and solidification. Therefore, it is necessary to investigate the thermal behavior of polymer filaments. The present study aims to prov...
CuS-functionalized cellulose based aerogel (CBA) with 3D macroporous structure was synthesized by in situ deposition of visible light responsive CuS photocatalyst. Hexagonal CuS was deposited onto the outer and inner walls of CBA matrix. CuS/CBA composite catalyst has hierarchical porous structure and abundance in functional groups supporting CuS o...

I am a newbie in research and would like to ask about how do we find out the chemical "Composition" and "Structure" of a polymer material by using any accurate characterization technique?
Your answers will highly be appreciated.
I am looking for the list of Top Scholarship sharing websites. As per my nanoscale knowledge about scholarships, there are fully funded scholarships available for students to study in countries like US, UK, Turkey, China, etc. But to find out the scholarship application window for each country is challenging and that is why i request our research community to recommend top websites that share scholarship opportunities.
I synthesized the composite of CuS with another material and tested its performance against organic dyes under visible light. It composite worked very well under visible light.
But the problem is that the bandgap of CuS Composite is higher than its bulk CuS.
Why is this even possible?
Any help will be appreciated to solve this mystery of mine.
Greetings Researchers,
I seek an example with reference where the bandgap of bulk material (example Cu2O) is lower than that of its composite material (Example Cu2O/ZnS).
