The fundamental and technological principles for the fabrication of hexagonal boron nitride nanostructures of various morphologies (nanotubes, nanoparticles, nanosheets with a high specific surface) using chemical vapor deposition (CVD) [CrystEngComm. 18 (2016)
The “know-how” on the “Method for the preparation of heterogeneous BN/Cu nanoparticles in a microwave plasma installation and device for its implementation” (No. 40
Under the leadership of the project supervisor, various methods for the synthesis of nanohybrid materials based on h-BN for catalytic processes were developed. Efficient hybrid nanocatalysts were developed in the Ag/BN and CuNi/BN systems, and the work is underway with nanohybrids in the Pt/BN and Au/BN systems. A higher catalytic activity of nanomaterials obtained by the decomposition of metal salts was established compared with the CVD synthesis, in which cladding of metal nanoparticles on the surface of h-BN occurs [Beilstein J. Nanotechnol. 9 (2018)
Resulting from the comprehensive study of the evolution of the structure of heterogeneous Ag/BN structures, it was found that the formation of silver nanoparticles over h-BN surfaces is accompanied by intermediate stages of the formation of nanocomposite polymer structures with Ag particles, as well as silver acetate. It was shown that these structures may be effectively used to control the content and size distribution of silver nanoparticles on the h-BN surface during low-temperature (up to 150°C) annealing. Varying the duration and temperature of annealing may also be used to control their morphology. It was also shown that the intermediate layer between the metal particle and the substrate plays an important role in increasing the catalytic properties of the Ag / BN system in the CO oxidation reaction. So, with the same content and size distribution of silver nanoparticles, enhanced properties are demonstrated by heterogeneous Ag / BN nanostructures containing a thin Ag-O-B transition layer [Catal. Sci. Technol. 9 (2019)
Nanohybrid materials (Cu0.8Ni0.2)/BN were obtained, and their high catalytic activity in the reaction of methanol reforming and oxidation of carbon monoxide was demonstrated. It was shown that the methanol conversion starts at ~20 °C and is nearly completed at 320 °C.It was demonstrated that the (Ni0.2Cu0.8)/BN nanohybrids exhibit high catalytic stability and high selectivity for CO2 over the entire temperature range. No carbon monoxide was detected during the full methanol conversion. The possible mechanism of CO utilization during methanol reforming was proposed using ab initio calculations. It was also established that the onset temperature of catalytic CO oxidation is 100 °C and full conversion is completed at 200 °C [Chem. Eng. J. 395 (2020) 125109].
It was established that an increase in the content of silver nanoparticles on the surface of h-BN by their formation by the polyol method is nonlinear. For the first time, the catalytic stability of the Ag/BN nanohybrid catalysts in the CO oxidation reaction was studied. Thus, correlations between Ag content, particle size distribution and temperature of complete CO conversion allow us to conclude that AgNPs, which size is below the critical value (3 nm), have a decisive role in Ag/BN nanohybrid catalytic performance. Exceeding this time leads to an increase in the concentration of silver on the h-BN surface due to the growth of particles and does not contribute to an increase in the catalytic activity of the material. It was found that the high catalytic activity of the Ag/BN nanohybrids in the CO oxidation reaction persists for a long time, and its decline is associated with the partial sintering of the smallest silver nanoparticles [ChemCatChem 12(6) (2020)
A cross-bar structure is employed to design a transparent p-n junction-based photodetector. The device consisting of aligned n-SnO2 and p-NiO nanofibers exhibits a high detectivity of 2.33×1013 Jones under the 250 nm illumination at −5 V, outperforming most state-of-art SnO2-based UV photodetectors. The device is also equipped with the self-powered functions due to a photovoltaic effect from the pn junction, resulting in a photocurrent of 10−10 A, responsivity of 30.29 mA W−1 at 0 V bias, and detectivity of 2.24×1011 Jones at 0.05 V bias.Moreover, the device is highly transparent (over 90% toward visible light) due to the wide band gap of photoactive materials and a well-designed cross-bar fiber structure [Advanced Electronic Materials 6 (2020) 1901048].
The developed BN nanostructureswere successfully utilized to fabricate lightweight yet high strength aluminum-based composite materials [Mater. Sci, Eng. A 642 (2015)
Obtaining antibacterial yet biocompatible and bioactive surfaces is an important task that the biological and biomedical community has been facing for many years already, but the problem has not yet been completely handled. Under the guidance of the project supervisor, new types of coatings with an antibacterial effect were developed [Applied Surface Science 330 (2015) 339; Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces 135 (2015) 158; Advanced Biomaterials and Devices in Medicine 1 (2015) 37; Journal of Biomedical Materials Research — Part B Applied Biomaterials, 105B (2017)
For the first time, boron-doped TiCaPCON coatings were obtained, and their antibacterial activity was studied (Applied Surface Science 465 (2019)
It was shown for the first time that the concentration of ions released in a biological medium depends not only on the content of the bactericidal element in the coating, but also on the topography and surface roughness (ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces, 9 (2017)
New type of coatings decorated with metal nanoparticles were developed. It was shown that new materials effectively inhibit the growth of eight types of bacteria: Escherichia coli K261 and U20, Klebsiella pneumoniae B1079k/17-3, Acinetobacter baumannii B1280A/17, Staphylococcus aureus no. 839, Staphylococcus epidermidis i5189-1, Enterococcus faecium Ya-235: VanA and I-237: VanA, including antibiotic resistant ones. The bactericidal effect is achieved due to the intensive release of bactericidal ions, the generation of reactive oxygen species, and microgalvanic interaction. The results wee published in the high-ranking journal of the American Chemical Society (ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces 11 (2019)
For the first time, the pulsed electrospark deposition technology was used to produce biocompatible and bioactive films with an antibacterial effect. The results were published in a number of Q1 journals: Surface and Coatings Technology, 302 (2016)
The method of plasma electrolytic oxidation (PEO) in electrolytes with particle additives was used to obtain hydroxyapatite-titanium dioxide coatings onto a Ti surface. Their microstructure and biological properties were studied in vitro (RSC Advances 6 (2016)
Another promising research area, actively developing under the guidance of the project supervisor, is plasma polymerization [Appl. Surf Sci. 435 (2018)
For the first time, BN nanoparticles with a petal-like surface were obtained by chemical vapor deposition and characterized as a promising anticancer drug-delivery system. The efficiency of nanocarriers against tumor cells with multidrug resistance was demonstrated [Applied Materials & Interface 7 (2015) 17217; ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces 9 (2017)
TiAlSiCN coatings with extremely high thermal stability were obtained. The nanocomposite columnar coating structure does not undergo any structural changes upon annealing in vacuum up to 1,300 °C [Acta Mater. 83 (2015)
Studies aimed at obtaining nanocomposite self-lubricating coatings were delivered. MoSeC/TiAlSiCN nanocomposite coatings with a low coefficient of friction (< 0.1) and high wear resistance in the temperature range of
For the first time, the new technology combining pulsed-arc evaporation (PAE) and electrospark deposition (ESD) in vacuum in a single technological cycle was developed. The excellent tribological properties of WC/a-C two-layer coatings are explained by the formation of a functional gradient structure with a smooth change in grain size and hardness from 3.6 GPa (Ti substrate) to 20 GPa (upper coating layer), increased strength and thickness of the electrospark deposited sublayer, which protects the substrate from plastic deformation, and a low coefficient of friction of the upper layer due to the formation of an amorphous structure with a high volume fraction of a-C phase providing good solid lubrication [Materials & Design 167 (2019) 107645]. In situ mechanical tests in an electron microscope column showed a high adhesive strength between the layers (the interface can withstand a load of 560 MPa). It was shown that in two-layer TiNbC coatings obtained by a combination of the ESD and PAE methods, the upper PAE layer provides wear protection for the less wear-resistant ESD sublayer. At the same time, a thick ESD underlayer with improved toughness prevents plastic deformation of the substrate under high loads [Surf. Coat. Technol. 385 (2020) 125422].
