Mechanisms of animal skin pigment pattern formation have long been of interest to developmental and mathematical biologists. Although there has been a well-studied theoretical hypothesis-the reaction-diffusion system-that is able to reproduce the variety of skin patterns, a lack of molecular evidence has kept it just a hypothesis. In this review, we(More)
We have investigated the ultrafast molecular dynamics of five pyrrolidinium cation room temperature ionic liquids using femtosecond optical heterodyne-detected Raman-induced Kerr effect spectroscopy. The ionic liquids studied are N-butyl-N-methylpyrrolidinium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide P14+/NTf2-), N-methoxyethyl-N-methylpyrrolidinium(More)
