Inorganic nanoparticles (NPs) have the ability to self-organize into a variety of structures. Analysis of experimental data for different types of NPs indicates a general trend of self-assembly under a wider range of conditions and having broader structural variability than self-assembling units from organic matter.
Remarkably, the internal organization of self-assembled NP systems rivals in... More >

Nickel complexes are often less adept at the activation and functionalization of unreactive bonds than second and third row transition metals. In contrast, the ability of Ni metal surface sites to readily activate C-H and C-C under ambient conditions has found use in high temperature catalytic reactions that involve skeletal rearrangements of C-H, C-C and C-O bonds. Cooperativity amongst adjacent... More >
