Book Description :

The goal of this thesis is to produce NiO- and Ni(OH)2-carbon based nanocomposites and explore their possible adoption as active electrode materials in supercapacitor and gas sensing applications. Field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and gas adsorption analyses were utilized to evaluate the structure and morphology of all samples in this study. The major aim of integrating carbon-based nanomaterials (graphene foam, graphene oxide and activated carbon) into Ni-based oxides and hydroxides in this study is to take advantage of their outstanding characteristics. These include good electrical conductivity, high corrosion resistance, large SSA, low-cost, good cyclic and temperature stability, as well as the capability to serve as a substrate for growth of other materials to form a suitable composite. The electrochemical evaluation as a potential supercapacitor electrode was employed in a three (3)-electrode configuration for the as-prepared Ni(OH)2/carbon based electrodes (NiOH)2/graphene foam and Ni(OH)2/graphene oxide electrodes) while the gas sensing characteristics of NiO/carbon-based electrodes were investigated using NCSM-CSIR gas sensing station controlled by a KEITHLEY pico-ammeter system. The electrochemical results of Ni(OH)2/carbon-based electrodes have demonstrated a superior electrochemical performance as compared to the pristine Ni(OH)2 electrodes with the results comparable and even better than some earlier related studies available in the literature. Similarly, NiO/carbonbased electrodes in the form of NiO/graphene foam and NiO/activated carbon electrodes both exhibited enhanced gas sensing properties in comparison to the pristine NiO electrode due to the increased specific surface area and electrical conductivity that are linked to its sensing response, response time and recovery time. Thus, the results obtained from these studies have clearly established the viability of these carbon-based nanomaterial composites as promising candidates for electrochemical supercapacitor and gas sensing applications.

Book Description :

Metal oxide nanomaterials exhibit interesting electrical and photochemical properties because of their size, stability, and high surface area that render them as great choices in fabricating alternative electrode materials for electrochemical energy storage and sensor applications. The hybridization of metal oxides with other materials lead to the improvement in electrical conductivity, stability, and electron transfer kinetics during the electrocatalytic reactions. These key factors result in greater sensitivity of the sensor materials towards the analyte molecules. This book reviews the electrochemical determination of a variety of toxic chemical contaminants using metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials. Ultrasensitive and selective detection of toxic chemical contaminants is important and demanding, especially for monitoring and controlling environmental pollution. In recent years, metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials have shown high potential in the electrochemical detection of heavy metals, inorganic anions, phenolic compounds, pesticides, and chemical warfare reagents. Metal Oxides in Nanocomposite-Based Electrochemical Sensors for Toxic Chemicals comprehensively reviews this topic. In addition to the instrumental simplicity, the electrochemical methods show the improved sensor performance through the synergetic effect of metal oxide and other electroactive nanomaterial present in the nanocomposite. Thus, detailed information on the electrochemical sensing of toxic chemical contaminants using metal oxide-based nanomaterials are discussed. The recent progress in developing electrochemical sensors using metal oxide-based nanocomposite materials and perspectives on future opportunities in sensor research and development are addressed in the book. Introduces the fundamentals of electrochemical sensors and fabrication of metal oxide sensors of toxic chemicals Reviews binary, doped, metal oxide-metal, metal oxide-carbon, metal oxide-polymer, metal-boron nitride, metal oxide-clay, and metal oxide- MOF electrodes Systematically addresses the fabrication, synthesis, performance, mechanisms, detection limits, sensitivity, advantages and limitations and future perspectives of a wide range of metal oxide-based electrochemical sensors

Book Description :

Smart wearable devices can be fabricated using flexible and linear cable-type materials for applications in energy, electronics, sensing and healthcare products. Such wearable devices have been prepared by incorporating conductive nanostructures, metallic nanomaterials, hybrid nanocomposites and polymer nanocomposites on the surface of flexible and permeable cotton materials (threads, fibers, yarns and fabrics). The present research work explores the feasibility of a novel sensor based on nanostructured cotton threads. These threads were functionalized using carbon nanotubes (CNTs) and PANi/ -Fe2O3 nanostructures. These hybrid nanostructured cotton based sensing threads could be easily woven into the textile materials which will be useful as wearable gadgets for LPG detection in household kitchens, manufacturing sites and industries. Also this work will boost an essential encouragement for the development of wearable smart sensing gadgets."

Book Description :

Advanced materials and nanotechnology is a promising, emerging field involving the use of nanoparticles to facilitate the detection of various physical and chemical parameters, including temperature, humidity, pH, metal ion, anion, small organic or inorganic molecules, gases, and biomolecules responsible for environmental issues that can lead to diseases like cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis, bacterial infections, and brain, retinal, and cardiovascular diseases. By monitoring environmental samples and detecting these environmental issues, advanced nanotechnology in this type of sensory technology is able to improve daily quality of life. Although these sensors are commercially available for the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, many existing models require significant power and lack advanced technology for more quality selectivity and sensitivity. There is room in these sensors to optimize their selectivity, reversibility, on/off ratio, response time, and their environmental stability in real-world operating conditions. This book explores the methods for the development and design of environmentally-friendly, simple, reliable, and cost effective electrochemical nanosensors using powerful nanostructured materials. More specifically, it highlights the use of various electrochemical-based biosensor sensors involved in the detection of monovalent cations, anions, gases, volatile organic molecules, heavy metal ions, and toxic metal ions, with the ultimate goal of seeing these technologies reach market.
