Advanced Materials Proceedings, April-June 2020 issue value to “Green and Sustainable Innovation and Nanotechnology”

Advanced Materials Proceedings (AMP) is a not-for-profit Diamond Open Access (DOA) journal focuses primarily on the launch of April-June 2020 as 2nd issue, which value to “Green and Sustainable” environment for any Innovation and Nanotechnology involved in materials world under current situation. This successful issue will have direct access to global materials researchers around the world to ensure quality content acquisition and information during the launch.

The IAAM intervene towards best goals of “green technology”, which encompasses a non-toxic product as sustainable technology. These environmentally friendly, energy efficient, renewable resources were helpful to fight for climate change challenges. International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM) releasing interdisciplinary materials research articles for Green and Sustainable world through its AMP journal. 

This issue has discussed about Green and Sustainable Innovation and Nanotechnology, Nanoelectronics, Lithium Ion Batteries, Polymer Slurry and Nanocomposites under sphere and emphasis on sustainable Innovation and Nanotechnology. AMP as an IAAM’s official journal, represents successful materials science research and technology information’s and establishing it even more prominent by ensuring it openly available through its unique model of Diamond Open Access (DOA).

About Cover

In current scenario, green technology found to be important and play a vital role in improving environment for the advancement of green and sustainable world. A high range of environmental friendly materials that have been procured from various resources have ignited significant interest due to their impressive properties of sustainability and generated logical initiatives to facilitate new technology development. The cover photo of the current April-June 2020 issue of Advanced Materials Proceedings is dedicated to the International Association of Advanced Materials (IAAM)'s agenda of next decade - "Advancement of Materials to green and sustainable world".

Article 1: Green and Sustainable Innovation and Nanotechnology

The first article of the issue is authored by A. Mishra from VBRI, India and Institute of Advanced Materials, IAAM, Sweden. This article solely describes about developing a large pool of research and technology data and high ranges of environmental friendly materials that have been procured from various resources have ignited significant interest due to their impressive properties of sustainability. This article emphasizes more about the advancements of green and sustainable nanomaterials research and their environmental impacts in the development of sustainable technologies.

Article 2: Known-how Needs For Higher Education In Nanoelectronics: French CNFM Network Strategy.

The second article of the issue is authored by author Olivier Bonnaud from University of Rennes and National Coordination for Education in Microelectronics at France. This article described about microelectronic technologies, which have progressively shifted to nanotechnologies. This evolution has been achieved by decreasing the lateral dimensions of the devices, and the thicknesses of the layers involved in the architecture of the devices. The minimum dimensions have today reached the size of several atoms. As a consequence, Higher education must continuously adapt to meet these needs. In France, a national network was created and organized in this way. Based on several examples of the activities of the French common centers, this paper presents how to maintain a high scientific level and skills based on the knowledge and know-how of future engineers and researchers.

Article 3: A Haloing Structured SiMPs@Cu Composite Anode Material For Lithium Ion Batteries

The third article was from Hui Xu et al., from Xi'an Jiaotong University, People’s Republic of China. This article described about the micrometer sized silicon particles encapsulated in copper layer (SiMPs@Cu), which was synthesized by a simple electroless deposition process. The electrochemical properties of the composite were characterized in terms of Cyclic Voltammetry (CV), Gavanostatic charge/discharge (GCD) and Electrochemical Impedance spectroscopy (EIS). The result demonstrates that the copper layer can effectively alleviate the failure issue of electrode induced by Si pulverization during the charge/discharge process. This method is cost-effective and easy-to-control which illuminates a feasible strategy to fabricate Si anode with cheap micro sized Si starting material.

Article 4: Polymer Slurry in Foundation Construction

The forth article is reported by Sarah, Mobley et al., from University of South Florida, USA. This article optimized discussion and results about a common method of constructing foundations for bridges or tall buildings in a submerged state below the ground water table. The most common slurry products are comprised of clay minerals mixed with water to form a thick consistency capable of suspending soil cuttings. This paper outlines test results showing the marked performance improvements. Results from concrete to soil bond, steel reinforcement to concrete bond, and corrosion durability tests are presented from multiple research projects all coming to the same conclusion: present methods that use mineral slurry may be unwittingly constructing poor foundation elements, and polymer slurry alternates result in superior end products.

Article 5: Development of SiO2-epoxy Nanocomposites and their Thermo-mechanical Properties

The fifth article is reported by Bandana Rajpoot et al., from Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, India. This study is focused to see reinforcing effects of SiO2 nanoparticles on the mechanical and thermal properties of epoxy resin. A good dispersion of silica nanoparticles enhances mechanical and thermal properties up to 4 wt.% SiO2. As a result, the value of fracture toughness increases from 1.10 to 2.90 M Pa.m1/2, fracture energy increases from 2.66 to 11.50 kJ/m2 and glass transition temperature increased about 9°C for the epoxy containing 4 wt. % SiO2 nanoparticles. With further particle loading in epoxy reflected decrease in mechanical and thermal properties, which is attributed to the significant increase in clustering of the nanoparticles at higher loading concentrations.
