    Niu, Kaiyang; Xu, You; Wang, Haicheng; Ye, Rong; Xin, Huolin L.; Lin, Feng; Tian, Chixia; Lum, Yanwei; Bustillo, Karen C.; Doeff, Marca M.; Koper, Marc T. M.; Ager, Joel; Xu, Rong; Zheng, Haimei (AAAS, 2017-07-28)
    Solar-driven photocatalytic conversion of CO2 into fuels has attracted a lot of interest; however, developing active catalysts that can selectively convert CO2 to fuels with desirable reaction products remains a grand ...
  • Block copolymer–based porous carbon fibers 

    Zhou, Zhengping; Liu, Tianyu; Khan, Assad U.; Liu, Guoliang (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2019-02-01)
    Carbon fibers have high surface areas and rich functionalities for interacting with ions, molecules, and particles. However, the control over their porosity remains challenging. Conventional syntheses rely on blending ...

    Wang, Qi; Chapleski, Robert C., Jr.; Plonka, Anna M.; Gordon, Wesley O.; Guo, Weiwei; Thuy-Duong Nguyen-Phan; Sharp, Conor H.; Marinkovic, Nebojsa S.; Senanayake, Sanjaya D.; Morris, John R.; Hill, Craig L.; Troya, Diego; Frenkel, Anatoly I. (Springer Nature, 2017-04-10)
    Ambient pressure in situ synchrotron-based spectroscopic techniques have been correlated to illuminate atomic-level details of bond breaking and formation during the hydrolysis of a chemical warfare nerve agent simulant ...
  • High-performance inertial impaction filters for particulate matter removal 

    Zhang, Xiaowei; Zhang, Wei; Yi, Mingqiang; Wang, Yingjie; Wang, Pengjun; Xu, Jun; Niu, Fenglei; Lin, Feng (Springer Nature, 2018-03-19)
    Airborne particulate matter (PM) is causing more and more serious air pollution and threatening the public health. However, existing air filter technologies with the easy-to-block manner can rarely meet the requirements ...
  • Select Small Core Structure Carbamates Exhibit High Contact Toxicity to "Carbamate-Resistant" Strain Malaria Mosquitoes, Anopheles gambiae (Akron) 

    Wong, Dawn M.; Li, Jianyong; Chen, Qiao-Hong; Han, Qian; Mutunga, James M.; Wysinski, Ania; Anderson, Troy D.; Ding, Haizhen; Carpenetti, Tiffany L.; Verma, Astha; Islam, Rafique; Paulson, Sally L.; Lam, Polo Chun Hung; Totrov, Maxim; Bloomquist, Jeffrey R.; Carlier, Paul R. (PLOS, 2012-10-01)
    Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) is a proven target for control of the malaria mosquito (Anopheles gambiae). Unfortunately, a single amino acid mutation (G119S) in An. gambiae AChE-1 (AgAChE) confers resistance to the AChE ...
  • Transport and Metabolism Behavior of Brazilein during Its Entrance into Neural Cells 

    Zhao, Shuang; Wang, Xin-Pei; Jiang, Jing-Fei; Chai, Yu-Shuang; Tian, Yu; Feng, Tian-Shi; Ding, Yi; Huang, Jing; Lei, Fan; Xing, Dong-Ming; Du, Li-Jun (PLOS, 2014-10-02)
    Brazilein, a natural small molecule, shows a variety of pharmacological activities, especially on nervous system and immune system. As a potential multifunctional drug, we studied the distribution and the transport behavior ...
