    , Article Journal of Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers and Materials ; Volume 23, Issue 4 , April , 2013 , Pages 881-887 ; 15741443 (ISSN) Sebt, S. A ; Khajehnezhad, A ; Dariani, R. S ; Akhavan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    Due to the strong magnetic anisotropy energy, the L10 FePt nanocrystals are considered as one of promising candidates for magnetic recording media with ultrahigh densities. The surfaces of Si and SiO2 wafers have been covered by FePt nanoparticles (NPs) and heated at 600 °C for 1 h to form the L10 phase. Bonding of NPs with the SiO2 surface in the presence of magnetic field during annealing process controls the L10 FePt NPs size and their uniform surface distribution. In the presence of perpendicular magnetic field to the surface, the size of NPs obtains up to 30 nm with coercivity of 5.8 kOe and in parallel magnetic field, the NPs size reaches to 45 nm with coercivity of 2.9 kOe. These... 

    Catalytic activity of TiO 2 nanotubes modified with carbon and Pt nanoparticles for detection of dopamine

    , Article ECS Transactions ; Volume 35, Issue 35 , 2011 , Pages 53-62 ; 19385862 (ISSN) ; 9781607682950 (ISBN) Mahshid, S ; Mahshid, S.

    Catalytic activity of carbon/Pt nanoparticles modified TiO 2 nanotubes electrode was studied by using dopamine contained solutions. The TiO 2 nanotubes electrode was prepared using anodizing method in aqueous solution. The electrochemical pulse method was then applied for electrodeposition of Pt nanoparticles onto the TiO 2 nanotubes. Further modification was achieved by decomposition of polyethylene glycol in a tube furnace to have a carbon/Pt nanoparticles modified TiO 2 nanotubes electrode. The final modified electrode could successfully detect the electro-oxidation of dopamine in a ImM contained solution using cyclic voltametry method. Also, a high sensitivity towards the oxidation of... 

    The role of ligands in the synthesis of FePt nanoparticles

    , Article Journal of Superconductivity and Novel Magnetism ; Volume 22, Issue 8 , 2009 , Pages 849-854 ; 15571939 (ISSN) Sebt, A ; Parhizgar, S ; Farahmandjou, M ; Aberomand, P ; Akhavan, M ; Sharif University of Technology
    The monosize formation, the ability of self-assembly, and high coercivity after annealing are the properties that lead to the priority of FePt magnetic nanoparticles for the application in recording media. These nanoparticles were synthesized by the superhydride method. The effect of oleic acid and oleylamin ligands on the fabrication of nanocrystals and the stability of the FePt system has been studied. TEM, EDS, XRD, and spectrophotometer analysis show the formation of FePt nanoparticles dispersion in hexane and indicate that oleylamine increases the number of particles in the nucleation stage and decreases the size of the Pt core, whereas the oleic acid controls the shell of the particle...

    In this study, we have investigated the use of electrodeposited Au-Pt nanoparticles (AuPtNPs) on indium tin oxide (ITO) for the detection of Hg2+ heavy ions in water samples. The mechanism of AuPtNP electrocrystallization on ITO glass in an aqueous solution containing 0.5 mM HAuCl4 + 0.5 mM H2PtCl6 is described for the first time. The nucleation mechanism of monometallic AuNPs on ITO was found to be progressive; however, a transition from progressive to instantaneous was observed for bimetallic AuPtNPs at elevated overpotentials. The modified ITOs were then assessed for the electrodetection of Hg2+ in aqueous media. It was shown by differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) that the sensitivity of... 

    The decoration of TiO2/reduced graphene oxide by Pd and Pt nanoparticles for hydrogen gas sensing

    , Article International Journal of Hydrogen Energy ; Volume 37, Issue 20 , 2012 , Pages 15423-15432 ; 03603199 (ISSN) Esfandiar, A ; Ghasemi, S ; Irajizad, A ; Akhavan, O ; Gholami, M. R ; Sharif University of Technology

    Reduced graphene oxide (RGO) was used to improve the hydrogen sensing properties of Pd and Pt-decorated TiO2 nanoparticles by facile production routes. The TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by sol-gel method and coupled on GO sheets via a photoreduction process. The Pd or Pt nanoparticles were decorated on the TiO2/RGO hybrid structures by chemical reduction. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy demonstrated that GO reduction is done by the TiO2 nanoparticles and Ti-C bonds are formed between the TiO2 and the RGO sheets as well. Gas sensing was studied with different concentrations of hydrogen ranging from 100 to 10,000 ppm at various temperatures. High sensitivity (92%) and fast response time... 

    Carbon-Pt nanoparticles modified TiO 2 nanotubes for simultaneous detection of dopamine and uric acid

    , Article Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology ; Volume 11, Issue 8 , 2011 , Pages 6668-6675 ; 15334880 (ISSN) Mahshid, S ; Luo, S ; Yang, L ; Mahshid, S. S ; Askari, M ; Dolati, A ; Cai, Q ; Sharif University of Technology
    The present work describes sensing application of modified TiO 2 nanotubes having carbon-Pt nanoparticles for simultaneous detection of dopamine and uric acid. The TiO 2 nanotubes electrode was prepared using anodizing method, followed by electrodeposition of Pt nanoparticles onto the tubes. Carbon was deposited by decomposition of polyethylene glycol in a tube furnace to improve the conductivity. The C-Pt-TiO 2 nanotubes modified electrode was characterized by cyclic voltam-metry and differential pulse voltammetry methods. The modified electrode displayed high sensitivity towards the oxidation of dopamine and uric acid in a phosphate buffer solution (pH 7.00). The electro-oxidation currents...

    Pt@Bi-TiO2 photocatalysts with different Bi (0–5 wt%) and Pt (0–2 wt%) contents were prepared by a two-step sol-gel and photo-deposition technique and were used in photo-reduction of CO2. The synthesized catalysts were characterized by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), UV–Vis diffuse reflectance spectroscopy (DRS), scanning and transmission electron microscopy (SEM and TEM), nitrogen sorption measurement (BET), Raman spectroscopy, Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and photoluminescence spectroscopy (PL). CO2 photo-reduction results revealed that the introduction of Bi into TiO2 structure and subsequent loading of Pt on its surface significantly increased the methane yield....
