As in many scientific disciplines, modern chemistry involves a mix of experimentation and computer-supported theory. Historically, these skills have been provided by different groups, and range from traditional 'wet' laboratory science to advanced numerical simulation. Increasingly, progress is made by global collaborations, in which new theory may be(More)
The CLIC damping ring requires wigglers with both high on-axis fields and short periods. The present design foresees a superconductive wiggler with a period length of 5 cm, a peak on-axis field of 2.5 T and a full aperture of 12 mm. In this paper we explore the performance improvements of the damping ring when these parameters are pushed to 2.7 T at a(More)
New insights into electrochemical kinetics of the flavin adenine dinucleotide (FAD) redox center of glucose-oxidase (GlcOx) immobilized on reduced graphene oxide (rGO), single- and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (SW and MWCNT), and combinations of rGO and CNTs have been gained by application of Fourier transformed AC voltammetry (FTACV) and simulations based(More)
Fully automated and computer assisted heuristic data analysis approaches have been applied to a series of AC voltammetric experiments undertaken on the [Fe(CN)6](3-/4-) process at a glassy carbon electrode in 3 M KCl aqueous electrolyte. The recovered parameters in all forms of data analysis encompass E(0) (reversible potential), k(0) (heterogeneous charge(More)
A device for precise magnetic measurements of superconductive coils was designed, built and installed at the synchrotron radiation source ANKA, Forschungszentrum Karlsruhe. Accurate magnetic field measurements are a prerequisite for the characterization and optimization of insertion devices. The new device allows measuring the magnetic field magnitude of(More)
Detailed electrochemical studies have been undertaken on molecular aggregation of the organic semiconductor 7,14-bis((triisopropylsilyl)-ethynyl)dibenzo[b,def]chrysene (TIPS-DBC), which is used as an electron donor material in organic solar cells. Intermolecular association of neutral TIPS-DBC molecules was established by using (1)H NMR spectroscopy as well(More)
Many electrode processes that approach the "reversible" (infinitely fast) limit under voltammetric conditions have been inappropriately analyzed by comparison of experimental data and theory derived from the "quasi-reversible" model. Simulations based on "reversible" and "quasi-reversible" models have been fitted to an extensive series of a.c. voltammetric(More)
A closo-type 11-vertex osmaborane [1-(η(6)-pcym)-1-OsB10H10] (pcym = para-cymene) has been synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction and elemental analysis, as well as by (11)B and (1)H NMR, UV-visible, and mass spectrometry. The redox chemistry has been probed by dc and Fourier transformed ac voltammetry and bulk reductive(More)
Estimation of thermodynamic and kinetic parameters in electrochemical studies is usually undertaken via comparison of the experimental results with theory based on a model that mimics the experiment. The present study examines the credibility of transient d.c. and a.c. voltammetric theory-experiment comparisons for recovery of the parameters needed to model(More)
