ZnO powder was synthesized by solution combustion method without annealing process. The specimens prepared with different fuel/oxidant ratios were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy, fourier transform infrared spectrometry, ultraviolet spectrometer (UV) and photoluminescence spectra (PL). With the optimal fuel/oxidant ratio of 0.25, relatively pure ZnO powder, showing the highest XRD peak, UV absorption and better luminescence property was obtained. Two peaks at 412 and 468 nm in PL spectra were attributed to the transition from conduction band to some deep acceptor level and the transition from the level of oxygen vacancies to the valence band, respectively. © Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2011.

Based on nonequilibrium Green's functions (NGF) and density-functional theory (DFT), we investigate the magnetotransport properties and magnetothermoelectric effects in zigzag graphene nanoribbons (ZGNRs) with non-magnetic doping on the double ribbon edges. One of the carbon atoms without hydrogen saturation in each ribbon edge is replaced by one boron (B) or one nitrogen (N) atom. Compared with boron-boron (BB) and nitrogen-nitrogen (NN) double-edge doping, the boron-nitrogen (BN) double-edge doping induces a perfect spin-filter effect with 100% negative spin polarization at the Fermi level. Moreover, we find that the thermoelectric effect can be enhanced by the double-edge doping. Interestingly, the spin Seebeck effect in NN- and BN-doped ZGNRs becomes comparable with the charge Seebeck effect and even larger than it. These results originate from the spin-dependent transmission node near the Fermi level induced by the non-magnetic doping. These findings strongly suggest that the double-edge-doped ZGNRs are promising materials for spintronics and thermo-spintronics. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.

We propose a pure thermoelectric spin generator based on a Rashba quantum dot molecular junction by using the temperature difference instead of the usual voltage bias difference. A magnetic flux penetrating through the device is also considered. The spin Seebeck coefficient SS and the spin figure of merit ZST of the molecular junction are calculated in terms of the Green's function formalism and the equation of motion (EOM) technique. It is found that a pure spin-up (spin-down) Seebeck coefficient can be generated by the coaction of the magnetic flux and the Rashba spin-orbit (RSO) interaction. © 2011 American Institute of Physics.

Dendritic poly (amine-ester) (PAE (NH 2) 8)-lauric acid was prepared by electrostatic force self-assembling and was characterized by means of FTIR. The effects of lauric acid dosage, PAE (NH 2) 8 mole concentration and aqueous phase pH on the phase-transfer rates of dyes(namely methyl orange, titan yellow and xylenol orange)were investigated. The results showed that the phase-transfer rates of the dyes increased firstly and then decreased with increasing lauric acid dosage and aqueous phase pH, and increased with increasing PAE (NH 2) 8 dosage. In the mixture of 20 mL lauric acid toluene solution with 9.09% (w) lauric acid, 10 mL PAE (NH 2) 8 aqueous solution with 4.2×10 -4 mol/L PAE (NH 2) 8 and 10 mL dye (methyl orange, titan yellow or xylenol orange) aqueous solution with about 1.200×10 -5 mol/L dye, when aqueous phase pH were 7.72, 6.64 and 7.72, the phase-transfer rates of titan yellow, methyl orange and xylenol orange reached the maximum value of 40.06%, 47.09% and 33.70%, respectively.

The electronic structure and conductance of substitutionally edge-doped zigzag silicene nanoribbons (ZSiNRs) are investigated using the nonequilibrium Green's function method combined with the density functional theory. Two-probe systems of ZSiNRs in both ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic states are considered. Doping effects of elements from groups III and V, in a parallel or antiparallel magnetic configuration of the two electrodes, are discussed. By switching on and off the external magnetic field, we may convert the metallic ferromagnetic ZSiNRs into insulating antiferromagnetic ZSiNRs. In the ferromagnetic state, even- or odd-width ZSiNRs exhibit a drastically different magnetoresistance. In an odd-width edge-doped ZSiNR a large magnetoresistance occurs compared to that in a pristine ZSiNR. The situation is reversed in even-width ZSiNRs. These phenomena result from the drastic change in the conductance in the antiparallel configuration. © 2014 the Owner Societies.

In order to develop the enameled wire with good heat resistance and direct tin solderability, using m-phthalic acid, adipate, glycol or ethanolamine and glycerol or tri-ethanolamine, serial polyester polyols were synthesized by melt co-polycondensation reaction. The synthesized polyester polyols were then mixed with methanol-etherfied amino resin and solvent to form the enameling solutions used for coating copper wire to prepare the enameled wires. The results show that the molecular weights and the acid values of the synthesized polyester polyols satisfy the technical requirement of the enameled wire preparation. It was found that, during melt co-polycondensation, using ethanolamine instead of glycol or using tri-ethanolamine instead of glycerol, the polycondensation reaction activity increases; and during temperature range of 350~400°C, the pyrolyses of the synthesized polyester polyols become faster and with less pyrolysis residue. The enameled wires prepared by using most of the above enameling solutions have good direct tin solderability at 400~460°C, and the inflexion point temperature of their dielectric loss curves can reach 162°C; It means that the enameled wires prepared can have a higher heat resistant class.

A novel technics of preparation of poly (urethane-ester-imide) (PUEI) was developed. First, N, N′-bis(β-hydroxyethyl)pyromallitimide (HEPMI) monomer was synthesized by reaction of ethanolamine and pyromellitic anhydride in dimethylformamide. In the period of intermediate amide-acid formation, the method of reactor dipped in ice-water and fed step-by-step were implemented. The poly (ester-imide) (PEI) polyol was synthesized by copolycondensation of HEPMI, apidic acid and glycerol, than the PUEI was obtained by crosslink reaction of PEI polyol and polyisocyanate. The results show that the PEI polyol are behaved higher viscous flow temperature and inherent viscosity, and that similar solubility in dimethylformamide, methyl pyrrolidone and m/p-cresol compared with polyester polyol. The PUEI are behaved better pyrolysis stability and solvent-resistant compared with poly (urethane-ester).

The thermal properties and pyrolysis of the poly(urethane-ester-imide) (PUEI) reported previously were studied in this paper. It was researched by the poly-technics method of tensile measurement at various temperature or after heat aging at higher temperature, Fourier transform infrared spectrum (FT-IR) and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA)-co-mass spectrometry (MS). The results show that: The PUEI behaves good mechanical properties at 100°C or after heat aging 2 hrs at 230°C. Seven ions with the m/e as 44, 54, 56, 84, 88, 95, 106 are checked in the pyrolysis of the PUEI. The ion with m/e as 44 is the main decomposed substance from pyrolisis of ester and urethane group in macromolecular chain. The heat resistance and heat aging properties of the PUEI are enhanced by the protection of the imide group to the close ester and urethane group.

Series of tris(2-hydroxyethyl)cyanuric acid (THEIC) modified poltester polyols and resulted enamels were prepared using waster polyester bottles as main material and THEIC and ethylene glycol (EG) as alcoholysis agent. It is found that the alcoholysis end point of wasted polyester bottles can be effectively controlled by thin-layer chromatography (TLC). The optimal alcoholysis condition is (195±5)℃ for 7 h. When 3/2 mass ratio of THEIC/EG is used, the number average molecular weight 5800 of polyester polyol is obtained which can accord with the dem and of enamel preparation.

We study the crystal reconstruction in the presence of monovacancies (MVs), divacancies (DVs), and linear vacancies (LVs) in a zigzag silicene nanoribbon (ZSiNR) with transversal symmetry. Their influence on the electric and thermoelectric properties is assessed by the density functional theory combined with the nonequilibrium Greens functions. In particular, we focus on the spin resolved conductance, magnetoresistance and current-voltage curves. A 5-atom-ring is formed in MVs, a 5-8-5 ring structure in DVs, and a 8-4-8-4 ring structure in LVs. The linear conductance becomes strongly spin-dependent when the transversal symmetry is broken by vacancies, especially if they are located on the ribbons edges. The giant magnetoresistance can be smeared by asymmetric vacancies. Single spin negative differential resistance may appear in the presence of LVs and asymmetric MVs or DVs. A strong spin Seebeck effect is expected at room temperature in ZSiNRs with LVs. © 2014 American Chemical Society.
