Fast Characterization of Functionalized Silica Materials by Silicon-29 Surface-Enhanced NMR Spectroscopy Using Dynamic Nuclear Polarization

submitted by: emsley
We demonstrate fast characterization of the distribution of surface bonding modes and interactions in a series of functionalized materials via surface-enhanced nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy using dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP). Surface-enhanced silicon-29 DNP NMR spectra were obtained by using incipient wetness impregnation of the sample with a solution containing a polarizing radical (TOTAPOL). We identify and compare the bonding topology of functional groups in materials...

Simulation studies of spherical nanoparticles in mesogenic media

submitted by: icamvid
Matt Glaser, University of Colorado at Boulder Abstract: We describe results from simulations of spherical nanoparticles in a nematogenic solvent consisting of soft spherocylinders. We find that nanoparticles remain well dispersed in the isotropic (low-density) phase of the solvent, but demix into a nanoparticle-poor nematic phase and a nanoparticle-rich isotropic phase at higher pressures. When the nanoparticle-spherocylinder interactions are modified to promote homeotropic anchoring, the...
