Journal of Physical Chemistry C – NEW in 2007

This is news to me, although it may not be news to you in chemical engineering and materials science. The American Chemical Society started a new “Journal of Physical Chemistry” this year – with the name Journal of Physical Chemistry C. According to the blurb on the ACS Journals site, this new journal (which already has 33 issues for the year, so I’m a little late with this post) will cover “research on nanoparticles, nanostructures, surfaces, interfaces, catalysis, electron transport, optical and electronic devices, and energy conversion and storage.” I would think that this new journal would be highly relevant to those of you doing research in nanotechnology and fuel cell technology. All WMU faculty and students have access to this journal via the ACS Web Editions link from the Waldo Library homepage. The links above will get you the full text of the articles if you are on campus. Those of you accessing this journal from off-campus will be prompted to enter your Bronco Net ID and password.

There are eighteen articles in the latest issue (no. 33) that deal with nanotechnology – including the following:

  • The Role of Metal Contact in the Sensitivity of Single-Walled Carbon Nanotubes to NO2 – R. Larciprete, L. Petaccia, S. Lizzit, and A. Goldini
  • Computational Design of a Rectifying Diode Made by Interconnecting Carbon Nanotubes with Peptide Linkages – Mohammad Khazaei, Sang Uck Lee, Fabio Pichierri, and Yoshiyuki Kawazoe
  • Controllable Synthesis of CuS Nanostructures from Self-Assembled Precursors with Biomolecule Assistance – Benxia Li, Yi Xie, and Yi Xue
  • Molecular Dynamics of Ice-Nanotube Formation Inside Carbon Nanotubes – Junichiro Shiomi, Tatsuto Kimura, and Shigeo Maruyama
  • Three-Dimensionally Ordered Macroporous Gold Structure as an Efficient Matrix for Solid-State Electrochemiluminescence of Ru(bpy)32+/TPA System with High Sensitivity – Wei Gao, Xing-Hua Xia, Jing-Juan Xu, and Hong-Yuan Chen
  • Magnetic Particles as Labels in Bioassays: Interactions between a Biotinylated Gold Substrate and Streptavidin Magnetic Particles – Randy De Palma, Chengxun Liu, Francesca Barbagini, Gunter Reekmans, Kristien Bonroy, Wim Laureyn, Gustaaf Borghs, and Guido Maes
  • ZnFe2O4 Nanocrystals: Synthesis and Magnetic Properties – Changwa Yao, Qiaoshi Zeng, G. F. Goya, T. Torres, Jinfang Liu, Haiping Wu, Mingyuan Ge, Yuewu Zeng, Youwen Wang, and J. Z. Jiang
  • Photoswitchable Semiconductor Bismuth Sulfide (Bi2S3) Nanowires and Their Self-Supported Nanowire Arrays – Haifeng Bao, Xiaoqiang Cui, Chang Ming Li, Ye Gan, Jun Zhang, and Jun Guo
  • Theoretical Study of the Electronic Structure of GaAs Nanotubes – Chanchal Ghosh, Sougata Pal, Biplab Goswami, and Pranab Sarkar
