Corrigendum: Self-Assembly of Amphiphilic Block Copolypeptoids – Micelles, Worms and Polymersomes


Corinna Fetsch, Jens Gaitzsch, Lea Messager et al.



Room temperature synthesis of biodiesel using sulfonated graphitic carbon nitride


R. B. Nasir Baig, Sanny Verma, Mallikarjuna N. Nadagouda et al.


Sulfonation of graphitic carbon nitride (g-CN) affords a polar and strongly acidic catalyst, Sg-CN, which displays unprecedented reactivity and selectivity in biodiesel synthesis …


How mobile are dye adsorbates and acetonitrile molecules on the surface of TiO2 nanoparticles? A quasi-elastic neutron scattering study


Valerie Vaissier, Victoria Garcia Sakai, Xiaoe Li et al.


Motions of molecules adsorbed to surfaces may control the rate of charge transport within monolayers in systems such as dye sensitized solar cells. We used quasi-elastic neutron …


Fabrication of Si negative electrodes for Li-ion batteries (LIBs) using cross-linked polymer binders


Suk-Yong Jang, Sien-Ho Han


Currently, Si as an active material for LIBs has been attracting much attention due to its high theoretical specific capacity (3572 mAh g−1). However, a disadvantage when using a …


Bacterial cytosolic proteins with a high capacity for Cu(I) that protect against copper toxicity


Nicolas Vita, Gianpiero Landolfi, Arnaud Baslé et al.


Bacteria are thought to avoid using the essential metal ion copper in their cytosol due to its toxicity. Herein we characterize Csp3, the cytosolic member of a new family of …


Effect of hydrothermal pretreatment on the structural changes of alkaline ethanol lignin from wheat straw


Xue Chen, Hanyin Li, Shaoni Sun et al.


Due to the enormous abundance of lignin and its unique aromatic nature, lignin has great potential for the production of industrially useful fuels, chemicals, and materials. …


Highly energetic phenomena in water electrolysis


A. V. Postnikov, I. V. Uvarov, M. V. Lokhanin et al.


Water electrolysis performed in microsystems with a fast change of voltage polarity produces optically invisible nanobubbles containing H2 and O2 gases. In this form the gases …


A simple and low-cost combustion method to prepare monoclinic VO2 with superior thermochromic properties


Ziyi Cao, Xiudi Xiao, Xuanming Lu et al.


In this approach, the VO2 nanoparticles have been successfully fabricated via combusting the low-cost precursor solution consisted of NH4VO3, C2H6O2 and C2H5OH. By the XRD, TEM …


Thumb Imprint Based Detection of Hyperbilirubinemia Using Luminescent Gold Nanoclusters


Srestha Basu, Amaresh Kumar Sahoo, Anumita Paul et al.


Early and easy detection of diseases, using point-of-care and inexpensive devices, not only provides option for early treatment but also reduces the risk of propagation. Herein …


Meteorite Impact-Induced Rapid NH3 Production on Early Earth: Ab Initio Molecular Dynamics Simulation


Kohei Shimamura, Fuyuki Shimojo, Aiichiro Nakano et al.


NH3 is an essential molecule as a nitrogen source for prebiotic amino acid syntheses such as the Strecker reaction. Previous shock experiments demonstrated that meteorite impacts …


Pt-Bi decorated nanoporous gold for high performance direct glucose fuel cell


Hong Guo, Huiming Yin, Xiuling Yan et al.


Binary PtBi decorated nanoporous gold (NPG-PtBi) electrocatalyst is specially designed and prepared for the anode in direct glucose fuel cells (DGFCs). By using electroless and …


Occurrence investigation of perfluorinated compounds in surface water from East Lake (Wuhan, China) upon rapid and selective magnetic solid-phase extraction


Yusun Zhou, Yun Tao, Huarong Li et al.


Using a novel magnetic nanocomposite as adsorbent, a convenient and effective magnetic solid-phase extraction (MSPE) procedure was established for selective separation and …


Microwave-assisted cross-linking of milk proteins induced by microbial transglutaminase


Chun-Chi Chen, Jung-Feng Hsieh


We investigated the combined effects of microbial transglutaminase (MTGase, 7.0 units/mL) and microwave irradiation (MI) on the polymerization of milk proteins at 30 °C for 3 h. …


Organic Redox Species in Aqueous Flow Batteries: Redox Potentials, Chemical Stability and Solubility


Kristina Wedege, Emil Dražević, Denes Konya et al.


Organic molecules are currently investigated as redox species for aqueous low-cost redox flow batteries (RFBs). The envisioned features of using organic redox species are low …


Aniline-containing guests recognized by α,α’,δ,δ’-tetramethyl-cucurbit[6]uril host


Rui-Lian Lin, Guo-Sheng Fang, Wen-Qi Sun et al.


The host−guest complexation of symmetrical α,α’,δ,δ’-tetramethyl-cucurbit[6]uril (TMeQ[6]) and cucurbit[7]uril (Q[7]) with a series of aniline-containing guests has been …


Site-Selective Controlled Dealloying Process of Gold-Silver Nanowire Array: a Simple Approach towards Long-Term Stability and Sensitivity Improvement of SERS Substrate


Natta Wiriyakun, Karuna Pankhlueab, Suwimon Boonrungsiman et al.


Limitations of achieving highly sensitive and stable surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) substrate greatly concern the suitable method for fabrication of large-area …


Theoretical and Experimental Study of Light-assisted Polymerization by Multimechanism Action


Hua Zhou, Dandan Song, Cheng Zhong et al.


A novel bicomponent alkyd system was designed to decrease the usage of Cobalt-based drier due to its latent carcinogensis. The system was polymerized using a Cobalt-salt complex …


Fabrication of Self-Ordered Alumina Films with Large Interpore Distance by Janus Anodization in Citric Acid


Yingjun Ma, Yihao Wen, Juan Li et al.


Self-organized porous anodic alumina (PAA) formed by electrochemical anodization have become a fundamental tool to develop various functional nanomaterials. However, it is still …
