Image of the month

platinum_particles

 

July's image is a TEM micrograph, with false colour, of a group of platinum particles with ordered nanoporous structures. These novel particles were prepared using a technique known as lyotropic liquid crystal templating by Samina Akbar, a PhD student supervised by Drs Elliott and Squires in the Department of Chemistry. The very high surface areas of these materials suggest they may have important applications in catalysis. The image was recorded by Samina and Peter Harris on CfAM's JEOL high resolution TEM using a digital camera kindly loaned by Gatan UK
