Atomic pair distribution study of the growth of Pt nanoparticles in zeolites
The Pair Distribution Function (PDF) is a total scattering method used to study the local structure of a material and yields a function in real space with peaks that represent the interatomic distances. In this work, we ...
Nucleation and growth of silver sulfide nanoparticles
The synthesis of metal and semiconductor nanoparticles has received widespread attention by the scientific community due to the large number of technological applications they find in nanoscaled systems. The mechanism of ...
Mortar mix design with fly ash and nano-silica for structural patchment
Mortars with sufficient bonding and mechanical strength are alternative remedies to restore the original resistance of a failed structural element, prolonging its longevity. The present thesis proposed the analysis of ...
