Morphological Distortion of Galactic Globular Clusters
The shapes and sizes of 116 Galactic globular clusters (GCs) are presented, based on the analysis of the spatial distribution of 2MASS point sources. In general, Galactic GCs are slightly flattenedExpand

Crystal plane-dependent gas-sensing properties of zinc oxide nanostructures: experimental and theoretical studies.
The sensitivity of a metal oxide gas sensor is strongly dependent on the nature of the crystal surface exposed to the gas species. In this study, two types of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures:Expand

Design and construction of polymerized-glucose coated Fe3O4 magnetic nanoparticles for delivery of aspirin
Abstract This study demonstrates a facile but effective method to construct glucose coated magnetic Fe3O4 nanoparticles for drug delivery through a glycothermal method (100–200 °C). In this process,Expand
