    Abstract: This paper studies the effect of time and temperature of polymerisation on morphology and conductivity of polyaniline which is produced by oxidative polymerisation. It has been reported that with decrease in temperature and increase in polymerisation duration, the yield and particle size increases. The polyaniline particles are rod-like at the onse... Show More

    Abstract: CuInSe2 synthesized by a modified solvothermal route could be altered considerably by controlling the reaction temperature, reaction time and washing agents. Synthesized CuInSe2 powders were characterized by X-ray diffraction. The particle size (t), lattice strain (ε) and Debye-Waller factor (B) were determined from the half-widths and inte... Show More

    Abstract: Ferrofluid is colloidal system poised of single domain of nanoparticles dispersed in a carrier liquid. Ferrofluid bargain incredible new potentials to improve heat transfer performance compared with pure liquids and can be watchful to be the next-generation of heat transfer fluids. In the present work Fe3O4 nanoparticles were synthesized by co-prec... Show More
