Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy of hydrogen-doped indium oxide (IO) tubular nanostructures shows presence of paramagnetic oxygen vacancies (VO) at room temperature. For temperatures below 80 K, the EPR spectra exhibit two distinct split resonances correspond to S=12 hydrogen electron spin. Interestingly, presence of hydrogen EPR resonances is accompanied by absence of EPR signal of VO, which is restored above 80 K with the concomitant disappearance of signature resonances from hydrogen. The temperature dependent donor and passivation behavior of hydrogen has been directly observed in metal oxide. This could provide valuable explanations of various VO induced controversial properties of IO nanostructures.

    Gold supported on ceria or ceria-alumina mixed oxides are very active catalysts for total oxidation of a variety of molecules. The key step of the oxygen activation on such catalysts is still a matter of debate. Gold-ceria (Au/CeO2) and gold-ceria-alumina (Au/CeO2/Al2O3) catalysts were prepared...

    Light-induced monodehydroascorbate (MDA) radical production was not detectable by EPR spectroscopy in untreated broad bean leaves, but it was observed after exposing the leaves to UV-B (280–320 nm) irradiation. After this pre-treatment, a low level of MDA radicals was also detectable...

    In high-accuracy work, electron-spin-resonance (ESR) g values are generally determined by calibrating against the accurately known proton nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). For that method—based on leakage of microwave energy out of the ESR cavity—a convenient technique is presented...

    We have recorded and investigated the ESR spectrum of vanadium-doped α-RbTiOPO[sub 4] single crystals in the temperature interval 77-300 K. Two types of structurally distinct centers, V1 and V2, with a 4:1 ratio of the peak intensities were observed. The angular dependences of the resonance...
