Preparation of nanoparticles prior to atomic force microscopy

Preparation of Nanoparticles - Recently published research in Nature Materials, by groups working at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), Imperial College London and the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory details advances in the development of organic semiconductor photocatalysts which could be used in solar panels to harness more of the sun’s energy than was previously possible.

The work demonstrates that incorporating a heterojunction between a donor polymer (PTB7-Th) and non-fullerene acceptor (EH-IDTBR) inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) can result in hydrogen evolution photocatalysts with greatly enhanced photocatalytic activity. The Henniker HPT-100 plasma system was used to prepare nanoparticles prior to atomic force microscopy to confirm the core-shell morphology of the deposited nanoparticle layer.
