    • Abstract

       

      TiO2 nanostructured films have been synthesized by the hydrolysis of Ti[OCH(CH3)2]4 as the precursor. These films have been utilized for the dissociation of phenol contaminant in water. Free-standing nanostructured film of silicon carbide (SiC) has been synthesized, employing a simple and new route of spray pyrolysis technique utilizing a slurry of Si in hexane. Another study is done on organized carbon nanotube (CNT) structures. These are made in the form of hollow cylinders (50 mm length, 4 mm diameter and 1.5 mm wall thickness). These CNT-based cylinders are made of conventional CNT and bamboo-shaped CNT. The filtrations of heavy hydrocarbons andE. coli bacteria from water have been carried out. In addition to this, ZnO nanostructures have also been studied. Another study concerns CNT-blood platelet clusters.
