Aerosol microdroplets exhibit a stable pH gradient
Suspended aqueous aerosol droplets (< 50 mu m) are microreactors for many important atmospheric reactions. In droplets and other aquatic environments, pH is arguably the key parameter dictating chemical and biological ...
Abundance and Speciation of Surface Oxygen on Nanosized Platinum Catalysts and Effect on Catalytic Activity
Oxygen at the surface of nanosized platinum has a direct effect on catalytic activity of oxidation−reduction chemical reactions. However, the abundance and speciation of oxygen remain uncertain for platinum with different ...
Transcriptomic Analysis of Hepatic Cells in Multicellular Organotypic Liver Models
(Springer Nature, 2018-07-27)
Liver homeostasis requires the presence of both parenchymal and non-parenchymal cells (NPCs). However, systems biology studies of the liver have primarily focused on hepatocytes. Using an organotypic three-dimensional (3D) ...
Effects of internal electrode cooling on irreversible electroporation using a perfused organ model
(Taylor and Francis Ltd, 2018-05-28)
Purpose: This study evaluates the effects of active electrode cooling, via internal fluid circulation, on the irreversible electroporation (IRE) lesion, deployed electric current and temperature changes using a perfused ...
Combinatory Finite Element and Artificial Neural Network Model for Predicting Performance of Thermoelectric Generator
Thermoelectric generators (TEGs) are rapidly becoming the mainstream technology for converting thermal energy into electrical energy. The rise in the continuous deployment of TEGs is related to advancements in materials, ...
Nanomaterial enabled sensors for environmental contaminants
Abstract The need and desire to understand the environment, especially the quality of one’s local water and air, has continued to expand with the emergence of the digital age. The bottleneck in understanding ...
