Scaling the h-index for different scientific ISI fields
We propose a simple way to put in a common scale the h values of researchers working in different scientific ISI fields, so that the foreseeable misuse of this index for inter-areas comparison might be prevented, or at least alleviated. Expand

The infrared dielectric properties of maghemite, γ-Fe2O3, from reflectance measurement on pressed powders
The infrared complex permittivity functions of three varieties of maghemite, γ-Fe2O3, having different degrees of vacancy ordering, have been determined from their IR reflectance spectra, measured atExpand

Antibacterial activity of copper monodispersed nanoparticles into sepiolite
Copper monodispersed nanoparticles (2–5 nm) embedded into submicron particles of sepiolite (Mg8Si12O30(OH)4(H2O)4·8H2O), suitable to be used for biological applications have been obtained after aExpand

Thermal Evolution of Transitional Aluminas Followed by NMR and IR Spectroscopies
Thermal decomposition of boehmite and bayerite has been studied by X-ray diffraction and by NMR and IR spectroscopies. Coordination and site distortion of Al polyhedra have been estimated by 27Al NMRExpand
