Why Soft,Solution Processing(=Low-EnergyProduction) of Advanced Nano-Materials is Difficult but Necessary for Sustainable Society?
November 10 (Thu.), 2022 16:00-17:00 on Japan Time
Modern our society has been developed with various advanced nano-materials. Most of advanced materials, Metallurgical materials, Semiconductors, Ceramic materials and Plastics have been used in wide area of applications like structural, mechanical, chemical, electrical, electronic, optical, photonic, biological, medical, etc. Most of them except for bio-polymers & bio-minerals have never been produced via biological systems. Thus they have generally been fabricated artificially and/or industrially by so-called high-technology, where high temperature, high pressure, vacuum, molecule, atom, ion, plasma, etc. have been used for their fabrications, then consumed huge amount of resources and energies thus exhausted huge amounts of wastes: materials, heats and entropy. To save this tragedy, we must consider “Cascade use of Heats”, and “Low energy Production of advanced nano-materials via water-based industries.” Bio-inspired process, which mean that “Learn from Bio-systems then Exceed them” and/or exceed “Green Technology mostly based upon Bio-systems”. They should also be necessary for SDGs (Sustainable Developing Goals.)
We have challenged to fabricate those advanced inorganic materials with desired shape/size/location,etc. directly in low energetic routes using aqueous solutions since 1989 when we found a method to fabricate BaTiO3 film on Ti substrate in a Ba(OH)2 solution by Hydrothermal Electrochemical[HEC] method at low temperatures of 60-200 C. We proposed in 1995 an innovative concept and technology, “Soft Processing” or “Soft Solution Processing,” which aims low energetic (=environmentally friendly) fabrication of shaped, sized, located, and oriented inorganic materials in/from solutions1,2). It can be regarded as green processing, or eco-processing. When we have activated/stimulated interfacial reactions locally and/or moved the reaction point dynamically, we can get patterned ceramic films directly in solution without any firing, masking nor etching. Direct Patterning of CdS, PbS and CaWO4 on papers by Ink-Jet Reaction method. Furthermore, we have succeeded to fabricate BaTiO3 patterns on Ti by a laser beam scanning3) and carbon patterns on Si by plasma using a needle electrode scanning directly in solutions4). Successes in TiO2 and CeO2 patterns by Ink-Jet Deposition, where nano-particles are nucleated and grown successively on the surface of substrate thus become dense even below 300 C will be presented. Nano-structured films will be also talked. .A recent novel subject, Soft Processing for various nano-carbons including Graphene, functionalized Graphene and Mxene will be introduced. Where we have succeeded to prepare functionalized Graphene Ink via successive processes under ambient temperature and pressure conditions.5-8) In addition we propose Heat cascades for Materials Fabrication to elliminate wastes (Heat and materials =Entropy).
