The polyvinyl alcohol (PVA)/halloysite nanotubes (HNTs) solution were prepared with the aid of ultrasonic treatment. The composite films were prepared through casting or coagulating the PVA/HNTs solution. The coagulation process was employed to obtain a composite film without aggregation of HNTs....
A two-step laser-assisted method for the synthesis of small and low-dispersed colloidal gold nanoparticles in deionized water is reported. As the first step, laser ablation from a gold target is used to fabricate relatively large (few tens of nanometers) and size-dispersed colloids. As the second...
