From a silane monomer to anisotropic buckled silica nanospheres: a polymer-mediated, solvent-free and one-pot synthesis

The morphology of particles, along with other particle attributes, has been shown to affect the biological fate of particles administered into the body. Particles with collapsed surfaces or shells (dimpled, buckled or crumpled) can have different appearances, under the microscope, that rese ... more

Characterization and modelling of Langmuir interfaces with finite elasticity

Interfaces differ from bulk materials in many ways, one particular aspect is that they are compressible. Changing the area per molecule or per particle changes the thermodynamic state variables such as surface pressure. Yet, when compressing to high surface pressures, dense packing of the i ... more

Liquid coordination complexes of Lewis acidic metal chlorides: Lewis acidity and insights into speciation

Coordination complexes of Lewis acidic metal chlorides: AlCl3, GaCl3, InCl3, SbCl3, SnCl4, SnCl2, ZnCl2 and TiCl4 with trioctylphosphine (P888) and with trioctylphosphine oxide (P888O) were synthesised.

Charged Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) Nanogels for Use as Differential Protein Receptors in a Turbidimetric Sensor Array

Due to the high cost and environmental instability of antibodies, there is precedent for developing synthetic molecular recognition agents for use in diagnostic sensors. While these materials typically have lower specificity than antibodies, their cross-reactivity makes them excellent candi ... more

A convenient approach to facilitate monitoring Gaucher disease progression and therapeutic response

Gaucher disease (GD) is caused by mutations on GBA1 gene leading to deficiency in acid β-glucosidase (GCase) and subsequent accumulation of its substrates, glucosylceramide (GlcC) and glucosylsphingosine (GlcS). GlcS in plasma has been proposed as a highly sensitive and specific biomarker f ... more

Re-usable PDMS Stamps for Non-destructive Fluorescence Evaluation and Imaging of Thin Film Photonic Structures

We report on a non-destructive method to evaluating fluorescence emission from fluorophores placed upon engineered photonic structures. Our method utilizes re-usable, fluorescent thin film coated Polydimethyl siloxane (PDMS) stamps. We harness the inherent characteristic of PDMS slabs; thei ... more

Recent Developments in Sensing Methods for Eutrophying Nutrients with a Focus on Automation for Environmental Applications

The demand for autonomous sensors for unattended, continuous nutrient monitoring in water is rapidly growing with the increasing need for more frequent and widespread environmental pollution monitoring. Legislative bodies, local authorities and industries all require frequent water quality ... more

Mimicking arterial thrombosis in a 3D-printed microfluidic in vitro vascular model based on computed tomography angiography data

Arterial thrombosis is the main instigating factor of heart attacks and strokes, which result in over 14 million deaths worldwide every year. The mechanism of thrombosis involves factors from the blood and the vessel wall, and it also relies strongly on 3D vessel geometry and local blood fl ... more

A reaction model on the self-assembly process of octahedron-shaped coordination capsules

Herein, the self-assembly process of an octahedron-shaped coordination capsule was analyzed based on a master equation approach using a reaction network model. This model was found to adequately reproduce the overall experimentally observed time evolutions and enabled us to trace the real-t ... more

Identification of hispidin as a bioluminescent active compound and its recycling biosynthesis in the luminous fungal fruiting body

We previously showed that luminous fungi share a common mechanism in bioluminescence, and identified hispidin as the luciferin precursor in Neonothopanus nambi mycelium. Here we showed the presence of hispidin as a bioluminescent active compound at 25–1,000 pmol/g in the fruiting bodies of ... more

Explosion behavior of ammonia and ammonia/methane in oxygen‐enriched air

The effect of enriching air with oxygen on the explosion behavior of ammonia and ammonia/methane has been experimentally investigated in a closed 5‐l cylindrical vessel. Results have shown that for both ammonia and ammonia/methane, when moving from air to pure oxygen, a transition takes pla ... more

Dropwise Condensation on Advanced Functional Surfaces – Theory and Experimental Set‐Up

Abstract Compared to filmwise condensation on conventional condenser surfaces, heat transfer can be significantly enhanced by tuning the wettability of the surface to promote dropwise condensation. Following rapid advances in surface engineering, the last years have seen an unprecedented ... more

Enriched‐air or pure oxygen as oxidant for gas‐to‐liquid process with microchannel reactors

Abstract The syngas production step is one of the most costly steps in a gas to liquid plant. It is common practice to use oxygen as oxidant in the reforming step. However, by the introduction of microchannel reactors with their remarkable heat transfer characteristics, high active catal ... more

Development of a hydrothermal liquefaction process using microalgae for improvement of bio‐crude yield and phosphorous content

Abstract Hydrothermal liquefaction (HTL) is a thermal depolymerization process used to convert wet biomass such as microalgae into bio‐crude oil. Four main products, gas, bio‐crude oil, an aqueous phase, and solid residue, are generated through HTL. In this study, we investigated HTL con ... more
