About Cover

Electric vehicles have seen steady development and growth over the last half-decade. The integration of modern technologies like Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning leading the advancements in the lives and durability of batteries and their efficiency. With each passing year, electric mobility is seeing new heights. And more than 2 million electric vehicles started running on the road which is a record for a calendar year. If the current trends continue, the number of electric vehicles that would be sold in the year 2030 could be as high as 43 million. The cover photo of this November 2019 issue is inspired by the editorial article written by Dr. Ashutosh Tiwari on Current Global Scenario of Electric Vehicles.

Abstract

Cu2O and Ag-Cu2O nanoparticles were prepared via reflux method using EDTA. From the PXRD, FTIR, UV-DRS studies the synthesized NPs were characterized. The morphologies of the prepared NPs were studied by SEM and TEM analysis. The synthesized NPs were tested for photocatalytic and photoluminescence studies. The PXRD data indicated that the synthesized nanoparticles belong to cubic phase structure and space group Pn-3m. The SEM data revealed that cube like structure were obtained. Cu2O and Ag-Cu2O Nps were taken for determine the photocatalytic activity study on methylene blue dye, the results indicated that Ag-Cu2O NPs exhibited promising photocatalytic activity. This is due to occurrence of Ag particles on the Cu2O material, which makes the catalyst more sensitive. Furthermore, a photoluminescence study reveals that Cu2O and Ag-Cu2O nano particles shown yellow light emission. © VBRI Press.
