Wear. Volumes 466–467, 15 February 2021

Abstract:
PVD coatings have been studied as candidates for erosion protection of carbon fibre reinforced polymers. Thus, multilayer Ti/TiN coating stacks with different thicknesses ranging from 1.5 to 11 μm have been deposited by pulsed…

Vibrational Frequencies of Cerium-Oxide-Bound CO: A Challenge for Conventional DFT Methods

Vibrational Frequencies of Cerium-Oxide-Bound CO: A Challenge for Conventional DFT Methods

Author: Pablo G. Lustemberg, Philipp N. Plessow, Yuemin Wang, Chengwu Yang, Alexei Nefedov, Felix Studt, Christof Wöll, and M. Verónica Ganduglia-Pirovano

Phys. Rev. Lett. 125, 256101 – Published 17 December 2020

Abstract:
In ceria-based catalysis, the shape of the catalyst particle, which determines the exposed crystal facets, profoundly affects its reactivity. The vibrational frequency of adsorbed carbon monoxide (CO) can be used as a sensitive probe…

Abstract:
A multilayer passive radiative selective cooling coating based on Al/SiO2/SiNx/SiO2/TiO2/SiO2 prepared by dc magnetron sputtering is presented. The design was first theoretically optimized using the optical constants….

Gas-phase kinetics of CH3CHO with OH radicals between 11.7 and 177.5 K

Gas-phase kinetics of CH3CHO with OH radicals between 11.7 and 177.5 K

Author:

Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys.

Abstract:
Gas-phase reactions in the interstellar medium (ISM) are a source of molecules in this environment. The knowledge of the rate coefficient for neutral–neutral reactions as a function of temperature, k(T), is essential to improve….
