Fly ash, a coal combustion byproduct with a predominantly aluminosilicate composition, is modified to develop an inexpensive sorbent for oil spill remediation. The as-produced fly ash is a hydrophilic material with poor sorption capacity. A simple two-step chemical modification process is designed to improve the oil sorption capacity. First, the fly ash was(More)
Instabilities of nanoscale ceria surface facets are examined on the atomic level. The electron beam and its induced atom migration are proposed as a readily available probe to emulate and quantify functional surface activity, which is crucial for, for example, catalytic performance. In situ phase contrast high-resolution transmission electron microscopy(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate collagen receptors on primary bovine articular chondrocytes from full-thickness and different layers of bovine articular cartilage. Cytometric studies with antibodies showed that approximately 56% of the chondrocytes from the superficial layer and 29% of the chondrocytes from the deep layer bound anti-annexin V.(More)
Annexin V has been characterized as a major collagen type II binding cell-surface component of normal chondrocytes and is also called anchorin CII in chondrogenic populations. Herein we present evidence that in vitro cultured Swarm rat chondrosarcoma cells are not capable of binding collagen type II in significant quantities to their surfaces, as compared(More)
Single-crystalline ceria nanorods were fabricated using a hydrothermal process and annealed at 325 °C-800 °C. As-synthesized CeO2 nanorods contain a high concentration of defects, such as oxygen vacancies and high lattice strains. Annealing resulted in an improved lattice crystalline quality along with the evolution of novel cavity-shaped defects in the(More)
