SrS phosphors activated with Ce and Dy ions were prepared by solid-state diffusion method. Photoluminescent study was carried out on SrS : Ce, SrS : Dy and SrS : Dy, Ce. Thermoluminescence and electron spin resonance studies were also carried out on SrS : Dy phosphor. The thermoluminescence glow curve shows a peak at around 142°C. Irradiated SrS : Dy exhibits an ESR line due to a defect centre. Thermal annealing behaviour indicates that this centre correlates with the TL peak at 142°C. The centre is characterized by an isotropic g-value of 2.0039 and is assigned to a 𝐹+ centre.

Curtailment of platinum catalysts loading in fuel cell is a recent central issue. As substitutes, these days several organic metal chelate compounds having featured moieties of M–N4 or M–N2O2 (M = transition metal ion) are being used as cathode catalysts in fuel cells. Here, in this study, we report in detail the electrocatalytic activity of manganese–Schiff base complexes for oxygen reduction reaction in 0.05 M HClO4 at room temperature. Actually, [Mn(salen)]+: [N,N′-bis(salicylaldehyde) ethylenediimino manganese(III)]+ and [Mn(salophen)]+: [N,N′-bis(salicylaldehyde)-1,2-phenylenediimino manganese(III)]+ were introduced into/onto the MCM-41 type silica spheres and used for the electrocatalytic reduction of oxygen. Synthesized materials were characterized by UV–Vis, FT–IR and electrochemical techniques. Significant low overpotential for oxygen reduction in 0.05 M HClO4 on [Mn(salen)]+- and [Mn(salophen)]+-incorporated silica-modified glassy carbon electrodes was observed.
