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 ...
Preparation and evaluation of nanocellulose-gold nanoparticle nanocomposites for SERS applications
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2015-06-09)
Nanocellulose is of research interest due to its extraordinary optical, thermal, and mechanical properties. The incorporation of guest nanoparticles into nanocellulose substrates enables production of novel nanocomposites ...
Protein-aided formation of triangular silver nanoprisms with enhanced SERS performance
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-05-10)
In this work, we present a modified seed-mediated synthetic strategy for the growth of silver nanoprisms with low shape polydispersity, narrow size distribution and tailored plasmonic absorbance. During the seed nucleation ...
Pulmonary Exposure to Magnéli Phase Titanium Suboxides Results in Significant Macrophage Abnormalities and Decreased Lung Function
Coal is one of the most abundant and economic sources for global energy production. However, the burning of coal is widely recognized as a significant contributor to atmospheric particulate matter linked to deleterious ...
