Nicotinic acid as a new co-adsorbent in dye-sensitized solar cells

http://repository.vnu.edu.vn/handle/VNU_123/28775


With the aim of introduction a new inexpensive co-adsorbent to improve solar cell performance, the influ-ence of nicotinic acid (NTA) used as a co-adsorbent in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSCs) was investigated. 


The findings showed that low concentrations of NTA (<10 mM) increased the N719 ruthenium dye loading on the TiO2electrode surface by 10–12%, whereas higher concentrations of NTA lowered the dye loading.
The adsorption of NTA onto the TiO2electrode surface was studied by attenuated total reflectance Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy, and the blocking effect of NTA toward electron transfer between the electrode and 1,4-dicyanonaphthalene (redox couple electrolyte probe) was investigated by cyclic voltammetry. 

Subsequently, the performance of NTA in functional DSCs was evaluated by current–voltage (J–V) DSC characterization and compared with that of DSCs fabricated with two well-established co-adsorbents i.e., chenodeoxycholic acid (CDA) and octadecylphosphonic acid (OPA).
The findings showed that under optimized co-adsorbent concentration (1 mM NTA, 0.03 mM CDA, 0.015 mM OPA), the efficiency of the corresponding solar cells increased to the same extent.
Specifically, the use of NTA at optimum concentration improved the efficiency of the resulting DSC from 3.14 to 5.02%.

Impacts of climate change on agro-ecological landscapes in the coastal area of the thai binh province (Vietnam) using the delphi technique

http://repository.vnu.edu.vn/handle/VNU_123/34049



This paper aims to facilitate the joint assessment of issues related to the agricultural systems, i.e. agriculture, aquaculture and climate change (CC) response strategies, in the coastal districts with a panel of stakeholders; and to evaluate the level of agreement on the topics under consideration and potentially identify the most promising approaches to assessing CC affecting agricultural systems in the area and identify relevant and adequate response strategies. Design/methodology/approach–Stakeholder Delphi technique–its assessment is an interactive method of qualitative research used to facilitate the interactive participation of varied and conceivably hierarchical and antagonistic stakeholder groups. Findings–The most important result for the province is that the impact of climate change on agro-ecological landscapes (poverty and near river areas) is the duration of cold weather, more frequent and extreme. Moreover, Kendall’sWte…

10 vua chúa tàn độc nhất lịch sử nhân loại

Thành Cát Tư Hãn, Hoàng đế Nero, Võ Tắc Thiên... nằm trong số 10 vua chúa tàn độc nhất lịch sử nhân loại, thậm chí sát hại cả người thân.


1. Thành Cát Tư Hãn:
Ông là người sáng lập ra đế chế Mông Cổ từ năm 1206 đến 1227 và là một trong 10 vua chúa tàn độc nhất lịch sử nhân loại . Trong thời gian cai trị, bạo chúa này nổi tiếng tàn nhẫn và khát máu. Những nơi vó ngựa ông đi qua đều trở nên hoang tàn và chết chóc. Cả binh lính, dân thường và trẻ em đều bị giết hại.

2. Hoàng đế Caligula:
Lịch sử ghi nhớ Hoàng đế La Mã là một vua chúa tàn độc khát máu và có đời sống trụy lạc. Không chỉ giết hại dân thường, Caligula còn làm hại cả những người thân cận. Theo sử sách, Caligula chỉ cầm quyền Đế quốc La Mã trong bốn năm trước khi Lính Đặc nhiệm ám sát ông ta.

3. Timur:
Timur hay còn gọi là lãnh chúa Tamerlane là người khai sinh ra đế chế Timur. Ông ta rất giỏi, dũng mãnh và đam mê nghệ thuật nhưng nổi tiếng hơn là một bạo chúa máu lạnh. Phương pháp cai trị của Timur rất tàn bạo và …
