Studies from Jiamusi University Reveal New Findings on Nanoparticles

May 6, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Life Science Weekly -- A new study on Nanoparticles is now available. According to news reporting originating from Jiamusi, People's Republic of China, by NewsRx correspondents, research stated, "In this paper, pure and different amount Co ions doped TiO2 nanoparticles were synthesized by a sol-hydrothermal method and were served as SERS-active substrate."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from Jiamusi University, "The effect of metal Co doping on SERS properties of TiO2 nanoparticles was mostly investigated."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The results indicate that abundant metal doping energy levels can be formed in the energy gap of TiO2 by an appropriate amount Co ions doping, which can promote the charge transfer from TiO2 to molecule, and subsequently enhance SERS signal of adsorbed molecule on TiO2 substrate, and improve remarkably SERS properties of TiO2 nanoparticles."
