A novel series of Ge-Te-BiI(3) chalcogenide glasses were prepared by traditional melt-quenching method and the glass-forming region was determined. Properties measurements including density, Vis-NIR and infrared (IR) transmission spectra with FTIR, XRD, DSC were adopted to analyze the composition, structure...

BiOI-MWCNT composites, with high absorption and visible-light photocatalytic performance, were synthesized by a solvothermal process, in which ethylene glycol (EG) participated in the reaction. Synthesized BiOI-MWCNT composites were characterized by X-ray diffraction (XRD), diffuse reflectance spectra (DRS), scanning electronic microscopy...

The solvothermal reactions of BiI(3), KI, I(2), 4,4'-bipyridine (4,4'-bipy), and a small amount of water in alcohol and acetonitrile produced four bipyridinium iodobismuthates {[MQ](3)[Bi(2)I(6)(μ-I)(3)][Bi(2)I(6)(μ-I)(2)(MQ)(2)](3)} (1, MQ(+) = N-methyl-4,4'-bipyridinium), {[EQ](3)[Bi(2)I(6)(μ-I)(3)][Bi(2)I(6)(μ-I)(2)(EQ)(2)](3)} (2, EQ(+) = N-ethyl-4,4'-bipyridinium), [MV][BiI(5)] (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem., 2010, 5326)...
