Self-assembled microtubes and rhodamine 6G functionalized Raman-active gold microrods from 1-hydroxybenzotriazole
Ravula Thirupathi Erode N Prabhakaran
1-Hydroxybenzotriazole spontaneously self-assembles to form hollow, linear microtubes initiated by controlled evaporation from water. The tube cavities act as thermo-labile micromoulds for the synthesis of linear gold microrods. Rhodamine 6G-labelled gold microrods, exhibiting surface enhanced resonance Raman activity, have been synthesized using the HOBT microtubes.

Organic fragments from graphene oxide: Isolation, characterization and solvent effects
Ravula Thirupathi Y Jayasubba Reddy Erode N Prabhakaran Hanudatta S Atreya
As-prepared graphene oxide (GO) contains oxidative debris which can be washed using basic solutions. We present the isolation and characterization of these debris. Dynamic light scattering (DLS) is used to monitor the separation of the debris in various solvents in the presence of different protic and aprotic alkylamino bases. The study reveals that the debris are rich in carbonyl functional groups and water is an essential component for separation and removal of the debris from GO under oxidative reaction conditions.
