Sildenafil is the active ingredient in Viagra tablets.Sildenafil was re crystallised in 10% alcohol and allowed to air dry, then adhered onto a SEM stub using double sided carbon adhesive discs, prior to viewing the sample was gold coated in an Emitech K550 Sputter Coater for 2 minutes at 20mA. The coated sample was then transferred into a FEI XL30 Scanning Electron Microscope and imaged at 10KV using a high tilt angle. High definition digital images were captured and imported into Photoshop for enhancing and colouring.

Gold nanoparticles on an ITO surface under a layer of graphene. The structure of the ITO, which is transparent in optical microscopes, is visible in blue. The nanoparticles are clearly visible through the very thin layer of graphene. Sample prepared by Joanna Niedziolka-Jönsson for this article: dx.doi.org/10.1063/1.4867167

Hybrid inorganic/polymer based photovoltaic nanodevices offer the promise of low cost large area conversion of solar energy to electricity. Nanostructures of zinc oxide have shown supreme capabilities in emerging technologies ranging from solar energy harvesting to biosensing. However, the ability to control the size and position of these nanostructures is crucial for fabricating nanodevices with remarkable properties and astonishing solar energy conversion efficiencies. Herein, we present a collection of scanning electron micrographs of zinc oxide nanostructures prepared by low temperature hydrothermal methods Image taken and Processed by Luisa Whittaker PhD.
