Additive manufacture of complex 3D Au-containing nanocomposites by simultaneous two-photon polymerisation and photoreduction (2017)
Journal Article
Hu, Q., Sun, X., Parmenter, C. D., Fay, M. W., Smith, E. F., Rance, G. A., …Wildman, R. D. (in press). Additive manufacture of complex 3D Au-containing nanocomposites by simultaneous two-photon polymerisation and photoreduction. Scientific Reports, 7, https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-017-17391-1

The fabrication of complex three-dimensional gold-containing nanocomposite structures by simultaneous two-photon polymerisation and photoreduction is demonstrated. Increased salt delivers reduced feature sizes down to line widths as small as 78nm, a...

Dehydrocoupling of dimethylamine-borane promoted by manganese(II) m-terphenyl complexes (2017)
Journal Article
Sharpe, H. R., Geer, A. M., Blundell, T. J., Hastings, F. R., Fay, M. W., Rance, G. A., …Kays, D. L. (in press). Dehydrocoupling of dimethylamine-borane promoted by manganese(II) m-terphenyl complexes. Catalysis Science and Technology, 8(1), doi:10.1039/C7CY02086D

Two- and three-coordinate manganese m-terphenyl complexes are precatalysts for the dehydrogenation of dimethylamine-borane (Me2NH·BH3) affording one equivalent of molecular hydrogen and half an equivalent of [Me2N–BH2]2. Experimental studies into the... Read More about Dehydrocoupling of dimethylamine-borane promoted by manganese(II) m-terphenyl complexes.

A one-pot-one-reactant synthesis of platinum compounds at the nanoscale (2017)
Journal Article
Stoppiello, C. T., Biskupek, J., Li, Z. Y., Rance, G. A., Botos, A., Fogarty, R. M., …Khlobystov, A. N. (2017). A one-pot-one-reactant synthesis of platinum compounds at the nanoscale. Nanoscale, 9(38), https://doi.org/10.1039/C7NR05976K

The preparation of inorganic nanomaterials with a desired structure and specific properties requires the ability to strictly control their size, shape and composition. A series of chemical reactions with platinum compounds carried out within the 1.5... Read More about A one-pot-one-reactant synthesis of platinum compounds at the nanoscale.

Growth of Carbon Nanotubes inside Boron Nitride Nanotubes by Coalescence of Fullerenes: Toward the World's Smallest Coaxial Cable (2017)
Journal Article
Walker, K. E., Rance, G. A., Pekker, Á., Tóháti, H. M., Fay, M. W., Lodge, R. W., …Khlobystov, A. N. (2017). Growth of Carbon Nanotubes inside Boron Nitride Nanotubes by Coalescence of Fullerenes: Toward the World's Smallest Coaxial Cable. Small Methods, 1(9), 1700184. https://doi.org/10.1002/smtd.201700184

The use of boron nitride nanotubes as effective nanoscale containers for the confinement and thermal transformations of molecules of C60-fullerene has been demonstrated. The gas-phase insertion of fullerenes into the internal channel of boron nitride...

Engineering p-n junctions and bandgap tuning of InSe nanolayers by controlled oxidation (2017)
Journal Article
Balakrishnan, N., Kudrynskyi, Z. R., Smith, E. F., Fay, M. W., Makarovsky, O., Kovalyuk, Z. D., …Patanè, A. (2017). Engineering p-n junctions and bandgap tuning of InSe nanolayers by controlled oxidation. 2D Materials, 4(2), https://doi.org/10.1088/2053-1583/aa61e0

Exploitation of two-dimensional (2D) van der Waals (vdW) crystals can be hindered by the deterioration of the crystal surface over time due to oxidation. On the other hand, the existence of a stable oxide at room temperature can offer prospects for s...
