Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Advancements in oxides-based nanomaterials in recent years have created a tremendous impetus for innovations in many industries, such as electronics, energy storage, energy conversion, health care, and environmental protection. In this context, oxides-based nanomaterials appear to be a strong class of materials which have a great potential to push through the limitations of next-generation electronics and energy storage technologies, with great potential for environmental application.

A large range of oxides with diverse nanostructures, such as nanoparticles, nanotubes, nanorods, nanoflowers, etc., have been investigated for their diverse applications. Moreover, hybrid materials in which one or more than one components are oxides nanomaterials are of significant interest to researchers, as they offer improved selectivity to exploit the potential of each component and hence can significantly improve device performances.

Potential topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to:

  • Recent advances in oxide nanostructures, oxide nanoparticles and nanostructures, with complex oxide/metal, oxide/surface, and oxide/organic interfaces;
  • Applications of oxides nanomaterials for electronics devices such as RRAM, transistors, photodetectors, etc.;
  • Hybrid materials, including oxides nanomaterials and their applications in energy storage devices;
  • Graphene/oxides composites for electronics, energy storage/conversion, sensors;
  • Recent advances of oxides nanomaterials for environmental and biomedical applications.

Quantitative analysis of endocrine-disrupting molecules such as bisphenol A (BPA) in freshwater to determine their widespread occurrence in environmental resources has been challenged by various adsorption and desorption processes. In this work, ion trap mass spectrometry (ITMS) analysis of BPA was aimed at studying its molecular interactions with titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles and milk whey proteins. Addition of sodium formate prevented TiO2 nanoparticles from sedimentation while enhancing the electrospray ionization (ESI) efficiency to produce an abundance of [BPA + Na]+ ions at m/z 251.0. More importantly, the ESI-ITMS instrument could operate properly during a direct infusion of nanoparticles up to 500 μg/mL without clogging the intake capillary. Milk protein adsorption of BPA could decrease the [BPA + Na]+ peak intensity significantly unless the proteins were partially removed by curdling to produce whey, which allowed BPA desorption during ESI for quantitative analysis by ITMS.
