James’s paper entitled Imaging the Predicted Isomerism of Oligo(aniline)s: A Scanning Tunneling Microscopy Study has just been published online in the micro- and nanotechnology journal Small!
The work was performed in collaboration with Prof. Heinrich Hoerber in Physics and Dr Neil Fox in Chemistry. For the first time, we have directly observed the cis and trans isomers of tetra(aniline)s in the half-oxidised EB state. Our findings shed light on why oligo(aniline)s do not always self-assemble as easily as other materials, and how we could improve their properties.
The paper with colleagues from Xi’an Jiaotong University, outlining a facile preparation method for hollow tetra(aniline)-shell microspheres, was published earlier today in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B. Well done to Lv (first author) for her hard work!
A paper with Jiangtao (a visitor and member of the FRG in 2011) and colleagues from Xi’an Jiaotong University was accepted for publication in the Journal of Materials Chemistry B.
The paper focusses on the preparation of tetra(aniline) microcapsule through a facile solution-based process. More news on this soon!
