The response of cells to forces is essential for tissue morphogenesis and homeostasis. This response has been extensively investigated in interphase cells, but it remains unclear how forces affect dividing cells. We used a combination of micro-manipulation tools on human dividing cells to address the role of physical parameters of the micro-environment in(More)
The progressive liquid-phase layer-by-layer (LbL) growth of anisotropic multicomponent layer-based porous coordination polymers (PCPs) of the general formula [M(L)(P)(0.5)] (M: Cu(2+), Zn(2+); L: dicarboxylate linker; P: dinitrogen pillar ligand) was investigated by using either pyridyl- or carboxyl-terminated self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) on gold(More)
A cobalt oxide-based oxygen-evolving cocatalyst (Co-Pi) is photodeposited by visible-light irradiation onto nanocrystalline TiO(2)-polyheptazine (TiO(2)-PH) hybrid photoelectrodes in a phosphate buffer. The Co-Pi cocatalyst couples effectively to photoholes generated in the surface polyheptazine layer of the TiO(2)-PH photoanode, as evidenced by complete(More)
Layer-selective installation of functional groups at SURMOFs (surface-attached metal-organic framework multilayers) is reported. Multilayers of [Cu(ndc)(dabco)(0.5)] grown in [001] orientation on pyridine-terminated organic self-assembled monolayers on Au substrates were functionalized with amino groups by step-by-step liquid-phase epitaxy. The method(More)
The stepwise thin film deposition of the robust, hydrophobic [Zn(4)O(dmcapz)(3)](n) (dmcapz = 3,5-dimethyl-4-carboxy-pyrazolato) is reported. The adsorption of small organic probe molecules, including alkanols, toluene, aniline and xylenes, was monitored by an environment-controlled quartz crystal microbalance setup. The adsorption selectivity was tuned by(More)
