When exposed to near-UV light, titanium dioxide (TiO 2) exhibits a strong bactericidal activity. However, the killing mechanism(s) underlying the TiO 2 photocatalytic reaction is not yet well understood. The aim of the present study is to investigate the cellular damage sites and their contribution to cell death. A sensitive approach using o-nitrophenol(More)
SKF-83959 [6-chloro-7,8-dihydroxy-3-methyl-1-(3-methylphenyl)-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-3-benzazepine] is reported to be a functionally selective dopamine D1 receptor ligand with high bias for D1-mediated phospholipase C (PLC) versus D1-coupled adenylate cyclase signaling. This signaling bias is proposed to explain behavioral activity in both rat and primate(More)
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory, a U.S. Department of Energy national laboratory, is collaborating with U.S. automotive manufacturers to develop innovative techniques to reduce national fuel consumption and vehicle tailpipe emissions by reducing vehicle climate control loads. A new U.S. emissions test, the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure(More)
Research results concerning the photocatalytic activity and selectivity of benzene are discussed. This compound, which represents one of an important class of volatile organic compounds found in indoor air, was oxidized in an annular photocatalytic reactor featuring a thin film of titanium dioxide and illuminated by a fluorescent black light. The gas phase(More)
It is a challenge to synthesize clusters having a certain shape associated with a desirable property. In this study, we perform density functional calculations on ligand-protected Al(7) and Al(77) clusters. It is found that small ligands such as NH(2) still prefer the compact structure of bare Al clusters. However, large ligands such as N(SiMe(3))(2)(More)
At the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), one of the goals of the Center for Transportation Technologies and Systems is to develop innovative techniques for reducing automobile fuel usage and tailpipe emissions by decreasing the auxiliary loads on the propulsion system of advanced vehicles. The power required to cool(More)
