    Abstract: Silver nanoparticles were synthesized using block copolymer (Pluronic® P123) spherical micelles as a template. In aqueous Ag+ ions may be electrostatically complexed with the anionic surfactant or ionic liquids. The silver ions were reduced in situ by introducing sodium borohydride as a reducing agent. We found that the size of the silver nanoparti... Show More

    Abstract: Technology of production of the pyrite cinders of molybdenum middlings includes: mixture granulation (composition 1: Mo-concentrate 90%, kaolin 10%; composition 2: Mo-concentrate, 97.3-97.0%, kaolin 2%, SK polymer 0.7%), their firing at 600°C to oxidize sulfide minerals and to recover rhenium oxide. As a result of Mo concentrate mixing with kaolin,... Show More
  • Simple Synthesis of Vanadium Oxide (V2O5) Nanorods in Presence of CTAB Surfactant

    Abstract: Structural and morphological properties of vanadium oxides (V2O5) nanoparticles have been studied. V2O5 nanoparticles were synthesized using a simple chemical method by sodium metavanadate as precursor and Cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as surfactant. The samples were characterized by high resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM),... Show More
