(I)SOL-GEL SYNTHESIS OF AEROGELS

Aerogels are a unique, nanostrutured material derived from gels. Gels are a novel class of material exhibiting solid-like behavior although consisting predominantly of a liquid phase. Their solidity derives from a continuous interpenetrating framework that, in essence, acts like a molecular scaffold extending throughout the liquid. This perspective of a gel as a molecular web in a liquid has found many industrial applications.

Encapsulated Dendrimer
  • The following figure shows mono dispersed Starburst PAMAM polyamidoamine dendrimers encapsulated in a sol-gel matrix of silica at 25 wt. %. Surface area analysis shows the material surface area was 617 m2/g. The dark spheres in Figure 1 dispersed throughout the silica matrix show diameters similar to their hydrodynamic values for this dendrimer in solution.

synthesis of hexagonal mesoporous silica carbon
Synthesis of Hexagonal Mesoporous Silica & Carbon
  • This lab couples the hydrolysis and condensation of TEOS or other silica sources with Structure directing agents such as surfactants or polymers .
  • It also uses the final silica mesoporous material as a template to synthesize a high surface area, hexagonal pure carbon material.

MESOPOROUS ZEOLITE-TYPE MATERIALS

The uniqueness of surfactant templated materials allows a variety of metal oxides to be formed with uniform honeycomb structure and surface area approaching 1000 m2/g. Surfactant templated materials have already been synthesized by the authors These materials were synthesized with Mg, Cr, Ru, Pt, and Co doped in the MCM-41 silica oxide.

synthesis of organic and carbon xerogels
Synthesis of Organic and Carbon Xerogels
  • Resorcinol is a molecule that much like TEOS can undergo hydrolysis and condensation reaction to form a gel structure that can be dry as a xerogel or aerogel.
  • This gel can be further transformed in to a high surface area carbon material. It gives the highest capacitance per unit volume .
  • Laurent Moch will demonstrate.

NANOSTRUCTURED ANODIZED ALUMINUM

Anodized aluminum is an ideal substrate in that it possesses vertical pores perpendicular to its surface.These nanopores are formed by electrochemical etching and pore diameter can be precisely controlled from 300 nm down to 2nm.

Reactors CVD Synthesis of SWNTs

  • Two parallel thermal reactors capable have already been constructed and tested,
  • These carbon nanotube reactors can operate from 100 torr to above atmospheric
  • The reactor’s temperature is computer controlled and may be ramped.
  • The reactors are set up to run either in parallel or separately
  • One of the reactors can handle large substrates such as silicon wafers up to 6 inches.

(II) CARBON NANOTUBES

Below is pictured a diagram of the unique geometry of a carbon nanotube as well as a transmission electron micrograph of a single wall nanotube produced in our department.

FIGURE 2: Open Nanotube (Newman)

At 100-150 times the strength of steel yet only 1/60th of its weight, nanotubes are being recognized as the penultimate fiber with a promise for material technology far surpassing all previous fibers yet created. This promise, as noted, is far beyond just the properties obtained with carbon fibers, now used in the highest performance composites. Potentially, future airplanes formed from
