Recently, composite materials based on Li-Mn-Ti-O system were developed to target low cost and environmentally benign cathodes for Li-ion batteries. The spinel-layered Li1.5MnTiO4…


Domain-specific interactions between MLN8237 and human serum albumin estimated by STD and WaterLOGSY NMR, ITC, spectroscopic, and docking techniques


Hongqin Yang, Jiuyang Liu, Yanmei Huang et al.


Alisertib (MLN8237) is an orally administered inhibitor of Aurora A kinase. This small-molecule inhibitor is under clinical or pre-clinical phase for the treatment of advanced …


Single crystalline superstructured stable single domain magnetite nanoparticles


Victoria Reichel, András Kovács, Monika Kumari et al.


Magnetite nanoparticles exhibit magnetic properties that are size and organization dependent and, for applications that rely on their magnetic state, they usually have to be …


Low phonon energies and wideband optical windows of La2O3-Ga2O3 glasses prepared using an aerodynamic levitation technique


Kohei Yoshimoto, Atsunobu Masuno, Motoi Ueda et al.


xLa2O3-(100 − x)Ga2O3 binary glasses were synthesized by an aerodynamic levitation technique. The glass-forming region was found to be 20 ≤ x ≤ 57. The refractive indices were …


Photostability of plasma polymerized γ-terpinene thin films for encapsulation of OPV


Kateryna Bazaka, Jakaria Ahmad, Michael Oelgemöller et al.
