Themed collection Raman spectroscopy and non linear effects
SERS and DFT investigation on the adsorption of 1,10-phenanthroline on transition metal surfaces
A combined SERS and DFT study was carried out to investigate the adsorption of 1,10-phenanthroline on transition metals.
The influence of
alkaline earth ions on the structural organization of acetone probed by the noncoincidence effect of the ν(CO) band: experimental and quantum chemical results
The large and negative noncoincidence effect of the additional ν(CO) Raman band in acetone electrolytic solutions reflects the structural organization of solvent molecules clustering around the M2+ ion.
Amplified spontaneous emission from opal photonic crystals engineered with structural defects
We report on the optical properties and amplified spontaneous emissions (ASE) of polystyrene opals engineered with planar structural defects containing a conjugated polymer emitter.
Silver nanoparticles behave as hydrophobic solutes towards the liquid water structure in the interaction shell. A Raman study in the O–H stretching region
Raman spectra of O–H stretching in aqueous silver colloids reveal weak interactions perturbing the hydration shell hydrogen-bond ordering of the solvent.
Experimental and calculated vibrational and
electronic circular dichroism spectra of 2-Br-hexahelicene
Most intense observed VCD bands for (−)-2-Br-hexahelicene compared with corresponding calculations for (M)-2-Br-hexahelicine.
Diffusion-mediated resonant energy transfer in lanthanide-based
polymer white-light-emitting diodes
Novel single layer lanthanide-based polymer white light emitting diodes are reported and their photophysical properties successfully modeled by diffusion-assisted resonant energy transfer.
Raman scattering of molecular graphenes
A computationally convenient model is introduced for real space analysis of the Raman response of molecular graphite in terms of bond contributions.
About this collection
This web-based theme issue showcases a collection of papers which were submitted following the XXI Italian national meeting on Raman spectroscopy and non-linear optical effects (GNSR 2009) held in Milan in February. The issue has been Guest Edited by Professor Matteo Tommasini and Professor Chiara Castiglioni at Politecnico di Milano. At the meeting, the Italian raman spectroscopists group (GNSR) formally decided to join the SocietÃ Chimica Italiana (Italian chemical society). SocietÃ Chimica Italiana is one of PCCP's 16 Owner Societies. All PCCP Owner Societies receive a royalty every time the journal publishes an article by a researcher based in the Owner Society's country. Earlier this year PCCP published a special celebratory issue to highlight the recent work of Italian physical chemists in celebration of the SocietÃ Chimica Italiana 100 year anniversary, which can be viewed via the link at the bottom of the page. Links to all the articles from this web theme issue can be found below. This list will be updated once new articles are published, so please come back and view it again.
