  • Journal Image
    Journal Scope:

    Quarterly published in print and online ‘Inventi Rapid/Impact: Nanotech & Bionic Engg’ publishes high quality unpublished as well as high impact pre-published research and reviews catering to the needs of researchers and professionals. This multidisciplinary journal covers all recent advances in the growing field of nanotechnology and bionic engineering. The journal welcomes papers related to nanofabrication, nanoprobes, nanostructures, nanoelectronics, nano-optics, nano-mechanics, nanodevices, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine and nanotoxicology. The bionic engineering segment focuses on fundamental understandings of animals and plants for bionic engineering, such as locomotion, structures, composites, morphology and physical properties of plants and natural materials, and applications of such understandings in engineering, technology and designs.

  • LOW TEMPERATURE HYDROTHERMAL SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF CARBON NANOTUBES
    B S Supriya*, P Nagaraja, K Byrappa    Download Full Text

    Carbon nanotubes were synthesized via carbon suboxide disproportionation using iron as a catalyst at a low temperature of 160°C. In this procedure carbon suboxide used as a carbon source, through disproportionation free carbon clusters are formed, after the hydrothermal treatment the free carbon clusters developed as a nanotubes using iron catalyst. The reaction is as follows diethyl malonate deh...

    Alireza Nojeh    Download Full Text

    Carbon nanotubes have a host of properties that make them excellent candidates for electron emitters. A significant amount of research has been conducted on nanotube-based field-emitters over the past two decades, and they have been investigated for devices ranging from flat-panel displays to vacuum tubes and electron microscopes. Other electron emission mechanisms from carbon nanotubes, such as p...

    Anirban Das, Eric Hall, Chien M Wai    Download Full Text

    Attachment of PbS quantumdots (QD) to single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNT) andmultiwalled carbon nanotubes(MWCNT) is described; wherein commercially obtained PbS-QD of size 2.7 nm, stabilized by oleic acid, are added to a suspension of singleormultiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNT) prefunctionalized noncovalently with 1,2-benzenedimethanethiol (1,2-BDMT) in ethanol. The aromatic part of 1,2-BDMTattac...

    Kane M Barker, Mark A Poggi, Leonardo Lizarraga, Peter T Lillehei, Aldo A Ferri, Lawrence A Bottomley    Download Full Text

    The adhesion of long, straight, single-walled carbon nanotubes to surfaces is examined usingmultidimensional force spectroscopy. We observed characteristic signatures in the deflection and frequency response of the cantilever indicative of nanotube buckling and slip-stickmotion as a result of compression and subsequent adhesion and peeling of the nanotube fromthe surface.The spring constant and th...

  • SYNTHESIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF COBALT NANOPARTICLES USING HYDRAZINE AND CITRIC ACID
    S A Salman, T Usami, K Kuroda, M Okido    Download Full Text

    Cobalt nanoparticles were produced by employing the liquid-phase reduction method and hydrazine. The effect of citric acid additives on the formation and growthmechanism of cobalt nanoparticles was investigated using polarization methods. The cobalt nanoparticles produced in 0.2M cobalt sulfate and 5M hydrazine at 298 K had a spherical shape with a diameter of 400 nm. The dendritic nanoparticles f...
