Optical and Thermodynamic Properties of Gold Metal Nanoparticles - Effect of Chemical Functionalization
27 May 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Baudilio Tejerina, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
This laboratory is intended to introduce the student to the use of semiempirical electronic structure methods. In particular, the semiempirical methods will be applied to the study of metallic clusters and the interaction of the clusters with discrete molecular systems such as pyridine.
Carbon Nanotube Fracture
27 May 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Christine M Aikens, George C. Schatz, Marcelo Carignano
Due to their mechanical properties, carbon nanotubes (CNTs) hold promise as nanoreinforcements in a variety of composites. As a result, numerous theoretical and experimental studies have been performed in order to understand the behavior of CNTs under axial tension. Whereas quantum mechanical...
Molecular Modeling and Electronic Structure Calculations with QC-Lab
01 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: George C. Schatz, Baudilio Tejerina, Shelby Hatch, Jennifer Roden
This is a purely computational project that is concerned with using the nanoHUB tool QC-Lab to create and optimize molecules, and to study their spectroscopic and structural properties. The molecules studied are generally small molecules of interest to atmospheric chemistry, however the tool...
Synthesis and Analysis of Silver/Gold Nanoparticles
01 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Shelby Hatch, George C. Schatz
This lab provides instructions for the synthesis of nanoscale silver colloidal particles along with questions to guide student thinking regarding the molecular-scale interactions between acids, bases, salts and sugar with the silver particles. A UV-Vis spectrophotometer (300-800 nm) is used to...
Learning Module: Chemical Lab Safety Rules
