Silver nanoparticles deposited within different carbon supports: carboxylated-graphene, SiO2-doted reduced- graphene-oxide (Gr/SiO2) ... More Evaluation of Reduced-Graphene-Oxide Aligned with WO3-Nanorods as Support for Pt Nanoparticles during Oxygen Electroreduction in Acid MediumMay 10 2018Hybrid supports composed of chemically-reduced graphene-oxide-aligned with tungsten oxide nanowires are considered here as active carriers for dispersed platinum with an ultimate goal of producing improved catalysts for electroreduction of oxygen in acid ... More Superconductivity in CaBi_{2}$Jul 26 2016Superconductivity is observed with critical temperature$T_{c}$= 2.0 K in self-flux-grown single crystals of$CaBi_{2}$. This material adopts the$ZrSi_{2}$structure type with lattice parameters a = 4.696(1)$\AA$, b = 7.081(2)$\AA$and c = 4.611(1) ... More Manipulating Mn--Mg$_k\$ cation complexes to control the charge- and spin-state of Mn in GaNNov 13 2013Owing to the variety of possible charge and spin states and to the different ways of coupling to the environment, paramagnetic centres in wide band-gap semiconductors and insulators exhibit a strikingly rich spectrum of properties and functionalities, ...

Towards 'Pt-free' Anion-Exchange Membrane Fuel Cells: Fe-Sn Carbon Nitride-Graphene 'Core-Shell' Electrocatalysts for the Oxygen Reduction ReactionMay 08 2018We report on the development of two new Pt-free electrocatalysts (ECs) for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) based on graphene nanoplatelets (GNPs). We designed the ECs with a core-shell morphology, where a GNP core support is covered by a carbon nitride ... More
A matrix-based method of moments for fitting multivariate network meta-analysis models with multiple outcomes and random inconsistency effectsMay 25 2017Random-effects meta-analyses are very commonly used in medical statistics. Recent methodological developments include multivariate (multiple outcomes) and network (multiple treatments) meta-analysis. Here we provide a new model and corresponding estimation ... More
