    • High Efficiency Nanocomposite Sorbents for CO₂ Capture based on Amine-functionalized Mesoporous Capsules 

      Qi, G.; Estevez, L.; Anako, N.; Park, A-H.; Li, W.; Jones, C.; Giannelis, E.P. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, THOMAS GRAHAM HOUSE, SCIENCE PARK, MILTON RD, CAMBRIDGE CB4 0WF, CAMBS, ENGLAND, 2010-10-18)
      A novel high efficiency nanocomposite sorbent for CO2 capture has been developed based on oligomeric amine (polyethylenimine, PEI, and tetraethylenepentamine, TEPA) functionalized mesoporous silica capsules. The newly ...
    • Nafion-clay hybrids with a network structure 

      Burgaz, E.; Lian, H.; Alonso, H.; Estevez, L.; Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-05-22)
      Nafion-clay hybrid membranes with a unique microstructure were synthesized using a fundamentally new approach. The new approach is based on depletion aggregation of suspended particles - a wellknown phenomenon in colloids. ...
    • Nafion-clay nanocomposite membranes: Morphology and properties 

      Alonso, R.H.; Estevez, L.; Lian, H.Q.; Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-05-22)
      A series of Nafion-clay nanocomposite membranes were synthesized and characterized. To minimize any adverse effects on ionic conductivity the clay nanoparticles were HI exchanged prior to mixing with Nafion. Well-dispersed, ...
    • Nafion/Clay Hybrids with a Network Structure 

      Burgaz, E.; Lian, H.; Alonso, H.; Estevez, L.; Kelarakis, A.; Giannelis, E.P. (ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2009-05-22)
      Nafion-clay hybrid membranes with a unique microstructure were synthesized using a fundamentally new approach. The new approach is based on depletion aggregation of suspended particles - a wellknown phenomenon in colloids. ...
    • A plasmonic fluid with dynamically tunable optical properties 

      Bhattacharjee, R.R.; Li, R.; Estevez, L.; Smilgies, D-M.; Amassian, A.; Giannelis, E.P.G. (RSC Publishing, 2009-10-19)
      We report the first synthesis of a gold nanorod (GNR)-based nanocomposite that exhibits solid-like plasmonic properties while behaving in a liquid-like manner. Tuning the degree of GNR clustering controls the material's ...
    • Superhydrophilic and solvent resistant coatings on polypropylene fabrics by a simple deposition process 

      Fang, J.; Kelarakis, A.; Estevez, L.; Wang, Y.; Rodriguez, R.; Giannelis, E.P. (ROYAL SOC CHEMISTRY, 2010-02-01)
      A simple, yet general coating method to plasma treated polymeric substrates is presented. The method is based on electrostatic interactions between the surface functionalized nanoparticles and the charged substrate and ...
