Synthesis and Characterisation of Platinum Nanoparticles Supported Vulcan Carbon Based Conductive Bipolymeric Nanoparticles
Poster May 22, 2012
S. Balaji and B. Narayanamoorthy
The physical interactions of Platinum nanoparticles anchored on Vulcan® carbon XC – 72 (VC) over Nafion® - Polyethylene glycol - 6000 (PEG) polymer matrix nanocomposite were characterized by Fourier Transform – Infrared (FT-IR) spectra technique and surface morphology by Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) analyses. The conductivity of the Pt nanoparticles embedded polymer nanocomposite membranes was measured using Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and the ORR studies were investigated using Cyclic Voltammetry (CV) and Linear Scan Voltammetry (LSV) under hydrodynamic conditions . The results show that VC over Nafion®-PEG polymer matrix nanocomposite exhibited a better improvement on their conductivity and comparable with neat Nafion® membranes hinting the possible use of the carbon over Nafion®-PEG matrix for improving the fuel cell efficiency for ORR with different Pt loading conditions.
A New Tool for the Automated Sample Preparation of Whole Blood Samples by LC-MS using a Commercial AutosamplerPoster
Automated sample preparation reduces the costs per sample and minimizes sample handling errors. Usually expensive and highly specialized pipetting robots are used. However, most of these systems are not designed with a direct interface for LC-MS applications. In addition common pipetting systems are not optimized for smaller scale sample series. Here we present a new tool for liquid handling of whole blood samples and direct sample injection.
