Abstract: NiO-loaded NaTaO3 doped with lanthanum showed a high photocatalytic activity for water splitting into H2 and O2 in a stoichiometric amount under UV irradiation. The photocatalytic activity of NiO-loaded NaTaO3 doped with lanthanum was 9 times higher than that of nondoped NiO-loaded NaTaO3. The maximum apparent quantum yield of the NiO/NaTaO3:La photocatalyst was 56% at 270 nm. The factors affecting the highly efficient photocatalytic water splitting were examined by using various characterization techniques. Electron microscope observations revealed that the particle sizes of NaTaO3:La crystals (0.1−0.7 μm) were smaller than that of the nondoped NaTaO3 crystal (2−3 μm) and that the ordered surface nanostructure with many characteristic steps was created by the lanthanum doping. The small particle size with a high crystallinity was advantageous to an increase in the probability of the reaction of photogenerated electrons and holes with water molecules toward the recombination.

Abstract: Fullerenes with a single lanthanum atom trapped on the inside of the carbon cage were produced by laser vaporization of a lanthanum oxide/graphite composite rod in a flow of argon gas at 1200 °C. When sublimed with C_(60) and C_(70), they formed an air-stable film containing principally LaC_(60), LaC_(70), LaC_(74), and LaC_(82). When dissolved in toluene and exposed to air, LaC_(82) was found to be uniquely stable. Evidence was also obtained for coalescence reactions between these fullerenes at high temperatures to form larger cages with as many as three lanthanum atoms inside. Indications have also been obtained for the successful production of KC_(60), C_(59)B, and KC_(59)B where the boron has substituted for a carbon in the soccerball cage. The use of the @ symbol is advocated for specifying such complex fullerenes as (K@C_(59)B). more

Abstract: A study of the core-electron X-ray photoelectron (X-p.e.) spectra of the f0 compounds La2O3, LaMO3(M = Fe and Co), CeO2, and BaCeO3 is described. Results on the chelate species [La(tmhd)3] and [Ce(tmhd)4](tmhd = 2,2,6,6-tetramethylheptane-3,5-dionato) are included for comparison. Special precautions have been taken to ensure an optimal degree of surface purity of the samples. Satellite structure has been observed for the 4p, in addition to the 3d and 4d, signals in both the lanthanum(III) and cerium(IV) compounds. These satellites arc discussed in terms of coexcitations of the charge-transfer type, principally O 2p→ metal 4f transitions. In the cerium(IV) oxides the satellites are apparently due to energy-gain (representing ‘ shake-down ’) rather than energy-loss (shake-up) processes. more
