Metabolic insertion of nanostructured TiO2 into the patterned biosilica of the diatom Pinnularia sp. by a two-stage bioreactor cultivation process.
This is the first reported study of using a living organism to controllably fabricate semiconductor TiO(2) nanostructures by a bottom-up self-assembly process.
Conversion of Glucose to Hydrogen-Rich Gas by Supercritical Water in a Microchannel Reactor
Microchannel reactors offer the intensification of heat transfer to endothermic chemical reactions. Microchannel reactors consist of a parallel array of micron-scale channels that are integrated into
Conversion of Xylose and Xylose−Phenol Mixtures to Hydrogen-Rich Gas by Supercritical Water in an Isothermal Microtube Flow Reactor
Microchannel reactors with inner diameters of less than 1.0 mm offer high rates of heat transfer to endothermic reforming reactions, particularly for the supercritical water gasification of biomass
The potential of diatom nanobiotechnology for applications in solar cells, batteries, and electroluminescent devices
The ability to produce low-cost, hierarchically-structured and nanopatterned inorganic materials could potentially revolutionize the way we fabricate photovoltaic, energy storage, and optoelectronic
Photoluminescence Detection of Biomolecules by Antibody‐Functionalized Diatom Biosilica
In this study, antibody‐functionalized diatom biosilica frustules serve as a microscale biosensor platform for selective and label‐free photoluminescence (PL)‐based detection of immunocomplex formation.
Electroluminescence and Photoluminescence from Nanostructured Diatom Frustules Containing Metabolically Inserted Germanium
Diatoms are single-celled algae that possess silica shells called "frustules" decorated with periodic structures ordered at the micro- and nanoscale. Diatom biosilica containing metabolically
Modeling of Supercritical Water Gasification of Xylose to Hydrogen-Rich Gas in a Hastelloy Microchannel Reactor
Microchannel reactors offer high rates of heat transfer that intensify biomass gasification in supercritical water by sustaining the reaction temperature in the presence of endothermic reforming
