Similarly, nano oxide configuration has also had a positive impact. Add nano titanium dioxide or nano silicon oxide(sio2 hydrophobic or hydrophilic) to the traditional system, to form nano-oxide anti-wrinkle tidal liquids at high speed, and anti -wrinkle arrangement of fabrics.


Nano material is a new type of functional material that has a large surface area, many surface activity centers, and strong adsorption capacity. In recent years, the study of nano  titanium dioxide has been started in China. The addition of nano titanium dioxide effectively improves the anti -wrinkle effect of cotton fabrics, and at the same time greatly improves the strength of the fabric. When the content of nano -titanium dioxide is 0.1g/L, the anti -wrinkle performance and improvement of the fabric will be the best.

In order to improve the rebound performance of real silk, many studies have been conducted at home and abroad. Studies have shown that nano -silicon oxide has many activity points , and its reaction activity is better than nano -titanium dioxide. On the surface of the experiment, the Malaysid Anid Anid anhydride anti -wrinkles can be used as a catalyst. In addition, the best process conditions for nano -silicon oxide as the anti -wrinkle system are: 2g/(50ml) of the Malay acid anhydride concentration, and the baking temperature of the roasting temperature It is 150C. This is realistic and economic value for improving the grade of textiles.

Chinese Scientists Have Made Important Breakthroughs in The Field of Super-strong Carbon Nanotube Fibers

Carbon nanotubes are considered to be one of the strongest materials discovered by humans, with a Young’s modulus of over 1 TPa and a tensile strength of over 100 GPa (the specific strength is as high as 62.5 GPa/(g/cm3). ), more than 10 times stronger than T1000 carbon fiber. Theoretical calculations show that carbon nanotubes are currently the only material that has the potential to help us realize our dream of a space elevator.

How to maintain the excellent mechanical properties of a single carbon nanotube after assembling is the first problem that must be solved in the preparation of super strong fibers. However, the reported strength of carbon nanotube fibers is only 0.5–8.8 GPa, which is far lower than the theoretical strength of carbon nanotubes (>100 GPa). The main reason is that the carbon nanotubes that form fibers are short in length, and the units overlap each other by van der Waals force, which easily slips each other under the action of tension, and cannot fully utilize the inherent high strength of carbon nanotubes. In addition, structural defects and disordered orientations in carbon nanotubes will lead to the decrease of fiber strength. In contrast, ultra-long carbon nanotubes have lengths of centimeters or even decimeters and have perfect structures, consistent orientations, and mechanical properties close to the theoretical limit, which have great advantages in the preparation of ultra-strong fibers.

With the support of the national key R&D program “Nanotechnology”, Professor Wei Fei’s team of Tsinghua University and Professor Li Xide’s team have made a breakthrough in the field of super-strength carbon nanotube fibers. Preparation of ultralong carbon nanotube bundles for theoretical strength. By adopting the method of in-situ airflow focusing, the research team controllably prepared centimeter-scale continuous ultra-long carbon nanotube bundles with definite composition, perfect structure and parallel arrangement, ingeniously avoiding the above-mentioned limiting factors. By preparing ultralong carbon nanotube bundles containing different numbers of units, quantitatively analyzing the effects of their composition and structure on the mechanical properties of ultralong carbon nanotube bundles, a definite physical/mathematical model was established. A “synchronized relaxation” strategy is proposed to release the initial stress of carbon nanotubes in the tube bundle through nanomanipulation, so that it is in a narrow distribution range, and then the tensile strength of the carbon nanotube bundle can be increased to 80 GPa. The above is close to the tensile strength of a single carbon nanotube. The reported tensile strength of ultralong carbon nanotube bundles is superior to all other fiber materials found so far. This work reveals the bright prospect of ultra-long carbon nanotubes for the manufacture of super-strong fibers, and points out the direction and method for the development of new super-strong fibers.

Application of TiO2 Nanotubes in Denitrification Field

TiO2 nanotubes have a high specific surface area (greater than 300m2/g). The specific surface area of ​​the catalyst has an important influence on the catalytic performance, so TiO2 nanotubes were used as the denitration catalyst carrier, and the manganese oxide/TiO2 nanotube denitration catalyst was prepared by loading manganese oxide by the equal impregnation method. The catalyst showed good low temperature denitration. performance, especially in the temperature range of 100-220 °C, the denitration activity is almost 100%.

Manganese oxide has relatively high catalytic activity in low-temperature denitration (electrons on 3D orbitals are very easy to migrate). Using TiO2 nanotubes with high specific surface as a carrier can improve the dispersion of manganese oxide and promote more catalytically active sites. At the same time, the mass transfer process of the reaction is improved; on the other hand, TiO2 nanotubes have strong anti-sulfur poisoning ability. In addition, the active sites of amorphous manganese oxide in the catalyst were uniformly dispersed on the surface of the carrier and the increase of Lewis acid content jointly promoted the improvement of catalyst performance.

The application of TiO2 nanotubes with large specific surface area in the catalytic reaction of low-temperature denitration is of great significance to expand the field of denitration.

Silicon carbide whiskers can significantly improve the service life of resin diamond grinding wheels

The diamond grinding wheel uses diamond abrasive as raw material, and uses metal powder, resin powder, ceramics and electroplated metal as binders respectively. The circular bonded abrasive tool with a through hole in the center is called diamond grinding wheel (alloy grinding wheel).

The resin-bonded diamond grinding wheel generally has a low life and cannot meet the requirements of advanced numerical control machine tools. The short life is mainly due to the poor wear resistance of the resin bond itself or the low holding force on the diamond, which causes the diamond abrasive particles to fall off prematurely during the grinding process. Therefore, how to improve the wear resistance of the resin bond and improve the holding force of the resin on the diamond has become the key to improving the service life of the resin bond diamond grinding wheel.

The addition of silicon carbide whiskers can greatly improve the strength, hardness, heat resistance, polishing, etc. of the bond and the grinding wheel. Silicon carbide whiskers have unique mechanical and physicochemical properties such as high hardness, high strength (toughness), and excellent wear resistance, so they are widely used in metals, ceramics, plastics, etc.

About Platinum-Carbon Catalyst and Its Application



Platinum-carbon catalyst, also called Pt/C, is a carrier catalyst loaded with platinum onto activated carbon and belongs to one of the subcategories of precious metal catalysts. It is mainly used for chemical reactions such as hydrogen oxidation, methanol oxidation, formic acid oxidation and oxygen reduction in fuel cells, and is a very common precious metal catalyst. Platinum carbon catalysts have a high technological threshold and are mainly produced through three major processes: precipitation conversion, chemical reduction and alternate microwave heating, which are highly demanding. Chemical reduction is the most commonly used method for the production of platinum carbon catalysts, which refers to the use of activated carbon, distilled water and hexachloroplatinic acid solution as raw materials to generate platinum carbon catalysts through mixing and dissolving, ultrasonic shaking and chemical reduction treatment. (nano platinum powders)




PEM electrolytic water cathode

Platinum-carbon catalyst is widely applied in PEM electrolytic water cathode, which is a method of decomposing water into hydrogen and oxygen. PEM electrolytic water cathode is one of the most widely used water decomposition technologies and is highly efficient, controllable and safe. With PEM electrolysis, hydrogen can be produced wherever it is needed and no emissions are produced. In the electrolytic water reaction, a platinum carbon catalyst facilitates the decomposition of water to produce hydrogen and oxygen. This process requires a lot of energy to carry out, so Pt/C catalyst can accelerate the reaction rate at low voltages. This means that using Pt/C catalyst can significantly reduce the amount of energy required to produce hydrogen and increase the efficiency of the reaction. Since the PEM electrolytic water hydrogen production equipment has made remarkable breakthroughs in technology and market, many PEM electrolyzer material companies started to enter the market one after another to start the attempt of localization and replacement.


Hydrogen fuel cell anode

Nowadays, new energy vehicle is the main application area for Pt/C catalyst. In this field, Pt/C catalyst plays an important role in hydrogen fuel cell anodes, as it can facilitate the reaction between hydrogen and oxygen to generate electrical energy, thus providing power for new energy vehicles. Normally, new energy vehicles use PEM fuel cells. The anode of this fuel cell requires Pt/C catalyst to accelerate the oxidation reaction of hydrogen to produce electric current. A fuel cell is an energy conversion device that converts chemical energy into electrical energy, and the electrode catalyst is one of its key raw materials. In a hydrogen fuel cell, a platinum-carbon catalyst is used to facilitate the reaction between oxygen and hydrogen. As the hydrogen passes through the electrolyte membrane into the cathode, Pt/C catalyst breaks the hydrogen into protons and electrons. The electrons flow through the circuit to produce electricity, while the protons pass through the electrolyte membrane to the anode where they combine with oxygen to form water. This process generates electricity and water for the hydrogen fuel cell.


Unlike conventional chemical platinum-carbon catalyst, which is loaded with less than 5%, the Pt/C catalyst for hydrogen fuel cells generally has a platinum loading of more than 20% and is very difficult to produce. Pt/C catalysts for hydrogen fuel cells require platinum nanoparticles with a particle size of 3-5nm, narrow particle size distribution, uniform dispersion on carbon, and no harmful impurities. Since the surface energy of 3-5nm Pt nanoparticles is very large and easily agglomerated, it is very difficult to prepare such a kind of Pt/C catalyst. With the development of new technologies, engineers are proactively researching to improve the structure and composition of catalysts in order to reduce their cost and increase their efficiency.


Pt/C catalyst is one of the fuel cell electrode catalysts commercially available in China, and the market demand for platinum carbon catalysts continues to increase, driven by the rapid growth of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle sales. According to the relevant data, the production and sales of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles in China in 2022 completed 3,626 and 3,367 units respectively, representing a year-on-year growth of 105.4% and 112.8%. In the future, with the production and sales scale of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles maintaining rapid growth, it is expected that the platinum carbon catalyst market in China will maintain growth at a CAGR of over 7% from 2023 to 2028, with promising prospects for the industry development.


The successful application of platinum carbon catalysts in hydrogen fuel cells and electrolytic water reactions provides a new direction for the development and utilization of clean energy. Compared with traditional fossil fuels, hydrogen has a wide range of applications as a clean energy source, and the use of Pt/C catalyst will become more common and mature.



Overall, Pt/C catalyst has a wide range of uses in hydrogen fuel cell and electrolytic water reactions, enabling much higher reaction efficiency and lower energy consumption required for the reaction. As technology and materials continue to advance, it is believed that the use of platinum carbon catalysts will become more and more widespread and offer more possibilities for the development of our clean energy.


Ferroferric Oxide Nanopowder Used for Ceramic Tile Substrate

Ferroferric oxide (Fe304 HW-P632) is an important type of iron oxide material with extensive applications in magnetic materials, polymer materials, electronic materials, and other fields. In recent years, ferric oxide has gradually been introduced into ceramic tile substrates, becoming a new type of functional ceramic material.


Ceramic tile is a common building decoration material, and its surface quality directly affects the decoration effect and service life. At present, traditional ceramic tile surface treatment methods are mainly chemical coating or physical treatment, but these methods have disadvantages such as high cost, long treatment time, and serious environmental pollution. By adding ferroferric oxide material to the ceramic tile substrate, the performance and quality of the tiles can be easily improved, becoming a new type of ceramic material with practical application value.


Firstly, Fe3O4 has conductivity property, which can form a certain electrostatic field on the surface of ceramic tiles, making it easier for particles such as dirt and dust attached to the surface of tiles to be adsorbed, thus purifying the air. Secondly, it also has strong antibacterial property, which can kill surface bacteria, reduce the growth of bacteria, and thus improve the hygiene level of ceramic tile surfaces. In addition, it has photocatalytic function, which can decompose organic substances on the surface of ceramic tiles through ultraviolet light irradiation, achieving the effect of purifying air and deodorizing.


Research has shown that adding different proportions of Fe3O4 materials to ceramic tile substrates can maintain their basic physical and mechanical properties, while enhancing their conductivity, antibacterial properties, and photocatalytic properties. Therefore, the introduction of ferroferric oxide material into the ceramic tile substrate can not only add new performance and value into the traditional building decoration materials, but also meet the people’s demand for healthy and comfortable indoor environment. It is a new application with broad development prospects.


Although ferroferric oxide has been widely applied and studied, its application in ceramic tile substrates still needs further improvement in order to achieve more ideal results in practical applications. Therefore, the future research work needs to strengthen the preparation and application technology of Fe3O4 material and improve its application effect and reliability in ceramic tile substrate to meet people’s demand for high-quality indoor environment.
