Large piezoresistivity phenomenon in SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 composites
(AIP Publishing, 2009-02-01)
We present the results on SiCN-(La,Sr)MnO3 (LSMO) composites correlating the observed large piezoresistance behavior with the microstructural features and defect chemistry. Scanning electron microscopy characterization ...
Thermal transport in composites of self-assembled nickel nanoparticles embedded in yttria stabilized zirconia
(AIP Publishing, 2009-04-01)
We investigate the effect of nickel nanoparticle size on thermal transport in multilayer nanocomposites consisting of alternating layers of nickel nanoparticles and yttria stabilized zirconia (YSZ) spacer layers that are ...
Overexpression and simple purification of the Thermotoga maritima 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase in Escherichia coli and its application for NADPH regeneration
Background Thermostable enzymes from thermophilic microorganisms are playing more and more important roles in molecular biology R&D and industrial applications. However, over-production of recombinant soluble proteins from ...

Cell-free protein synthesis energized by slowly-metabolized maltodextrin
Background Cell-free protein synthesis (CFPS) is a rapid and high throughput technology for obtaining proteins from their genes. The primary energy source ATP is regenerated from the secondary energy source through substrate ...
