Super-hydrophobic Silver-Doped TiO2 @ Polycarbonate Coatings Created on Various Material Substrates with Visible-Light Photocatalysis for Self-Cleaning Contaminant Degradation


Zhengjian Li, Zongzhao Sun, Zhiqiang Duan et al.


In the present work, a facile and efficient fabrication method has been developed for creating super-hydrophobic coatings of silver-doped TiO2@polycarbonate (TiO2 (Ag)@PC) on the …


Discrete Element Model for Suppression of Coffee-Ring Effect


Ting Xu, Miu Ling Lam, Ting-Hsuan Chen


When a sessile droplet evaporates, coffee-ring effect drives the suspended particulate matters to the droplet edge, eventually forming a ring-shaped deposition. Because it causes …


Graphene-Induced Pore Formation on Cell Membranes


Guangxin Duan, Yuanzhao Zhang, Binquan Luan et al.


Examining interactions between nanomaterials and cell membranes can expose underlying mechanisms of nanomaterial cytotoxicity and guide the design of safer nanomedical …


Corrigendum: Photo Initiated Chemical Vapour Deposition To Increase Polymer Hydrophobicity


Ariane Bérard, Gregory S. Patience, Gérald Chouinard et al.



Focus on PNA Flexibility and RNA Binding using Molecular Dynamics and Metadynamics


Massimiliano Donato Verona, Vincenzo Verdolino, Ferruccio Palazzesi et al.


Peptide Nucleic Acids (PNAs) can efficiently target DNA or RNA acting as chemical tools for gene regulation. Their backbone modification and functionalization is often used to …


A new model for in situ nitrogen incorporation into 4H-SiC during epitaxy


Gabriel Ferro, Didier Chaussende


Nitrogen doping of 4H-SiC during vapor phase epitaxy is still lacking of a general model explaining the apparently contradictory trends obtained by different teams. In this …


Visualisation of abscisic acid and 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid in immature Phaseolus vulgaris L. seeds using desorption electrospray ionisation-imaging mass spectrometry


Hirofumi Enomoto, Takuya Sensu, Kei Sato et al.


The plant hormone abscisic acid (ABA) and the jasmonic acid related-compound 12-oxo-phytodienoic acid (OPDA) play crucial roles in seed development, dormancy, and germination. …


Frustration of crystallisation by a liquid–crystal phase


Christopher D. Syme, Joanna Mosses, Mario González-Jiménez et al.


Frustration of crystallisation by locally favoured structures is critically important in linking the phenomena of supercooling, glass formation, and liquid-liquid transitions. …


Synthesis of Pt/K2CO3/MgAlOx–reduced graphene oxide hybrids as promising NOx storage–reduction catalysts with superior catalytic performance


Xueyi Mei, Qinghua Yan, Peng Lu et al.


Pt/K2CO3/MgAlOx–reduced graphene oxide (Pt/K/MgAlOx–rGO) hybrids were synthesized, characterized and tested as a promising NOx storage and reduction (NSR) catalyst. Mg–Al layered …


3D printed self-driven thumb-sized motors for in-situ underwater pollutant remediation


Fen Yu, Qipeng Hu, Lina Dong et al.


Green fuel-driven thumb sized motors (TSM) were designed and optimized by 3D printing to explore their in-situ remediation applications in rare studied underwater area. Combined …


1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate as a highly efficient organocatalyst for cyanosilylation of carbonyl compounds with trimethylsilyl cyanide


Bakhtar Ullah, Jingwen Chen, Zhiguo Zhang et al.


1-Ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate is introduced as a robust organocatalyst for solvent-free cyanosilylation of carbonyl compounds with trimethylsilyl cyanide (TMSCN). The …


The Biophysical Probes 2-fluorohistidine and 4-fluorohistidine: Spectroscopic Signatures and Molecular Properties


Chandana Kasireddy, Jonathan M. Ellis, James G. Bann et al.


Fluorinated amino acids serve as valuable biological probes, by reporting on local protein structure and dynamics through 19F NMR chemical shifts. 2-fluorohistidine and …


Four reversible and reconfigurable structures for three-phase emulsions: extended morphologies and applications


Xue-hui Ge, Yu-hao Geng, Qiao-chu Zhang et al.


Here in this article, we classify and conclude the four morphologies of three-phase emulsions. Remarkably, we achieve the reversible transformations between every shape. Through …


A cyclometalated iridium(III) complex used as a conductor for the electrochemical sensing of IFN-γ


Xiangmin Miao, Chung-Nga Ko, Kasipandi Vellaisamy et al.


A novel iridium(III) complex was prepared and used as a conductor for sensitive and enzyme-free electrochemical detection of interferon gamma (IFN-γ). This assay is based on a …


Solvent Chemistry in the Electronic Cigarette Reaction Vessel


R. Paul Jensen, Robert M. Strongin, David H. Peyton


Knowledge of the mechanism of formation, levels and toxicological profiles of the chemical products in the aerosols (i.e., vapor plus particulate phases) of e-cigarettes is …


Grayscale image recording on Ge2Sb2Te5 thin films through laser-induced structural evolution


Tao Wei, Jingsong Wei, Kui Zhang et al.


Chalcogenide Ge2Sb2Te5 thin films have been widely exploited as binary bit recording materials in optical and non-volatile electronic information storage, where the crystalline …


How Native and Alien Metal Cations Bind ATP: Implications for Lithium as a Therapeutic Agent


Todor Dudev, Cédric Grauffel, Carmay Lim


Adenosine triphosphate (ATP), the major energy currency of the cell, exists in solution mostly as ATP-Mg. Recent experiments suggest that Mg2+ interacts with the highly charged …


Crystal shape controlled H2 storage rate in nanoporous carbon composite with ultra-fine Pt nanoparticle


Tsan-Yao Chen, Yanhui Zhang, Liang-Ching Hsu et al.


This study demonstrates that the hydrogen storage rate (HSR) of nanoporous carbon supported platinum nanocatalysts (NC) is determined by their heterojunction and geometric …
