Innovating a way out

Nature Materials 14, 849 (2015). doi:10.1038/nmat4417 The ongoing European Union fiscal crisis has taken its toll on research and innovation across several member states. A number of initiatives aim to boost technological innovation as a tool for increasing wealth. more

Reworking Greek research

Nature Materials 14, 853 (2015). doi:10.1038/nmat4403 Costas Fotakis, the Greek Alternate Minister for Research and Innovation, explains to Nature Materials how he plans to improve the country's research and innovation landscape under the constraints of austerity. more

Normal Taste Acceptance and Preference of PANX1 Knockout Mice

Taste compounds detected by G protein-coupled receptors on the apical surface of Type 2 taste cells initiate an intracellular molecular cascade culminating in the release of ATP. It has been suggested that this ATP release is accomplished by pannexin 1 (PANX1). However, we report here that ... more

Oleogustus: The Unique Taste of Fat

Considerable mechanistic data indicate there may be a sixth basic taste: fat. However, evidence demonstrating that the sensation of nonesterified fatty acids (NEFA, the proposed stimuli for "fat taste") differs qualitatively from other tastes is lacking. Using perceptual mapping, we demonst ... more

Mice Lacking Pannexin 1 Release ATP and Respond Normally to All Taste Qualities

Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is required for the transmission of all taste qualities from taste cells to afferent nerve fibers. ATP is released from Type II taste cells by a nonvesicular mechanism and activates purinergic receptors containing P2X2 and P2X3 on nerve fibers. Several ATP relea ... more

19F NMR-, ESR-, and vis-NIR-spectroelectrochemical study of the unconventional reduction behaviour of perfluoroalkylated fullerene: dimerization of the C70(CF3)10− radical anion

The most abundant isomer of C70(CF3)10 (70-10-1) is a rare example of a perfluoroalkylated fullerene exhibiting electro-chemically irreversible reduction. We show that electro-chemical reversibility at the first reduction step is achieved at scan rates higher than 500 V/s. Applying ESR-, vi ... more

Accurate determination of lithium isotope ratios by MC-ICP-MS without strict matrix-matching by using a novel washing method

The accurate determination of Li isotopic ratios by MC-ICP-MS has traditionally been hampered by high background and severe memory effect of Li. In this study, a novel method to efficiently reduce the high background and memory effect of Li was developed. It was found that the Li background ... more

Application of [small beta]-cyclodextrin/graphene oxide-modified fiber for solid-phase microextraction of six fragrance allergens in personal products

A new β-cyclodextrin/graphene oxide hybrid material prepared via chemical covalent interaction and layer-to-layer assembly, was developed as a sorbent for the solid-phase microextraction of fragrance allergens. Benefited from the ultra-large surface area, large delocalized π-electron system ... more

High resolution ion mobility-mass spectrometry for separation and identification of isomeric lipids

Lipidomics is a particularly difficult analytical challenge due to the number and importance of isomeric species that are known or postulated in biological samples. Current separation and identification techniques are too often insufficiently powerful, slow or ambiguous. High resolution, lo ... more

Centrifugo-pneumatic sedimentation, re-suspension and transport of microparticles

Microparticles are widely used as solid phase for affinity based separation. Here, we introduce a new method for automated handling of microparticles in centrifugal microfluidics that is not restricted by the particle size and requires neither auxiliary means such as magnets nor coating of ... more
