Spectroscopic and Microscopic Investigations of Phthalocyanine Aggregates on Au(111)
Self-assembled organic π systems are of interest because of their potential applications in light harvesting and electron transfer. Phthalocyanines (Pc) demonstrate desirable photonic and electronic properties, thus making ...
THE USE OF BIODEGRADABLE MULCH FOR TOMATO AND BROCCOLI PRODUCTION: CROP YIELD AND QUALITY, MULCH DETERIORATION, AND GROWERS' PERCEPTIONS
Biodegradable mulch may offer the benefits of polyethylene mulch for crop production with the added benefit of biodegradability. Four studies were carried out in Mount Vernon, WA to evaluate biodegradable mulch for tomato (
STUDY OF THE DYNAMICS OF THE MoO2-Mo2C SYSTEM FOR CATALYTIC PARTIAL OXIDATION REACTIONS
On a global scale, the energy demand is largely supplied by the combustion of non-renewable fossil fuels. However, their rapid depletion coupled with environmental and sustainability concerns are the main drivers to seek ...
Atomic Jump Frequencies in Intermetallic Compounds Studied Using Perturbed Angular Correlation of Gamma Rays
Atomic jump frequencies were determined in a variety of intermetallic compounds through analysis of nuclear relaxation of spectra measured using the nuclear hyperfine technique, perturbed angular correlation (PAC) of gamma ...
EXCIMER LASER INTERACTION WITH ZINC OXIDE
When single crystal ZnO is exposed to 193-nm laser photons in vacuum at fluences below 100 mJ/cm
POLY(3-HYDROXYBUTYRATE-CO-3-HYDROXYVALERATE) - CELLULOSE NANOWHISKERS COMPOSITES BY SOLUTION CASTING
In this research, renewable biobased nanocomposites based on poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-3-hydroxyvalerate) and cellulose nanowhiskers were prepared by solution casting. Nanocomposite structure and property investigations ...
INVESTIGATION OF A SUSTAINABLE ALTERNATIVE - WOOD BIO-PLASTIC COMPOSITES
Bio-polymers have become a focus for developing wood bio-plastic composites since they can be sustainably renewed from agricultural resources. One of the bio-polymers, poly-3-hydroxybutyrate (PHB), has been widely studied ...
A single molecule approach for measuring the transport properties and energetics of Membrane proteins in Heterogenous Planar Bio-mimetic assemblies
The significance of transmembrane protein research is well documented. Numerous studies have clearly established the biological, biophysical and pharmaceutical importance that these membrane components serve. Communications ...
Fabrication and characterization of carbon nanotube turfs
Carbon nanotube turfs are vertically aligned, slightly tortuous and entangled functional nanomaterials that exhibit high thermal and electrical properties. CNT turfs exhibit unique combinations of thermal and electrical ...
