Quantum dot-sensitized solar cells (QDSSCs) are interesting energy devices because of their (i) impressive ability to harvest sunlight and generate multiple electron/hole pairs, (ii) ease of fabrication, and (iii) low cost. The power conversion efficiencies (η) of most QDSSCs (typically <4%) are, however, less than those (up to 12%) of dye-sensitized solar(More)
With the increasing use of C60 in many industrial and commercial sectors, it is likely that it will eventually appear in the environment however, its environmental fate and transport is still largely unknown. The extent to which C60 partitions to soil will contribute to its environmental fate and bioavailability. Because C60 is extremely hydrophobic, in(More)
The present study investigated the genetic diversity, population structure, F ST outliers, and extent and pattern of linkage disequilibrium in five populations of Keteleeria davidiana var. formosana, which is listed as a critically endangered species by the Council of Agriculture, Taiwan. Twelve amplified fragment length polymorphism primer pairs generated(More)
Trailing edge populations of upward migrating species induced by postglacial climatic warming can be evolutionarily significant in the face of global warming. We tested for population size changes between lower- and higher-elevation populations located in the same mountainous regions of the upward-shifting temperate woody species of the Rhododendron(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) photosensitize the production of reactive oxygen species that may damage organisms by biomembrane oxidation or mediate environmental transformations of CNTs. Photosensitization by derivatized carbon nanotubes from various synthetic methods, and thus with different intrinsic characteristics (e.g., diameter and electronic properties),(More)
Very limited information exists on transformation processes of carbon nanotubes in the natural aquatic environment. Because the conjugated pi-bond structure of these materials is efficient in absorbing sunlight, photochemical transformations are a potential fate process with reactivity predicted to vary with their diameter, chirality, number and type of(More)
