We measured the glass transition temperatures of mono-, di-, and trisaccharide mixtures using differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and analyzed these temperatures using the Gordon-Taylor equation. We found that the glass transition temperatures of monosaccharide-monosaccharide and disaccharide-disaccharide mixtures could be described by the conventional(More)
Increased survival of cancer cells mediated by high levels of ionizing radiation (IR) reduces the effectiveness of radiation therapy for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). In the present study, danshensu which is a selected component of traditional oriental medicine (TOM) compound was found to reduce the radioresistance of NSCLC by inhibiting the nuclear(More)
The binding of ZnO nanoparticles (NPs) and caffeic acid (CFA) was investigated using fluorescence quenching, UV/vis absorption spectrscopy, Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and dynamic light scattering (DLS) at different temperatures. The study results indicated fluorescence quenching between ZnO NPs and(More)
The dynamics of the jamming transition in a three-dimensional granular system under vertical vibration is studied using diffusing-wave spectroscopy. When the maximum acceleration of the external vibration is large, the granular system behaves like a fluid, with the dynamic correlation function G (t) relaxing rapidly. As the acceleration of vibration(More)
Well-aligned ZnO nanostructures have been intensively studied over the last decade for remarkable physical properties and enormous applications. Here, we describe a one-step fabrication technique to synthesis freestanding ZnO nanorod/graphene/ZnO nanorod double heterostructure. The preparation of the double heterostructure is performed by using thermal(More)
The liquid–glass transition in the disaccharide sugar trehalose mixed with small amounts of water was studied with calorimetry, photon correlation spectroscopy, Brillouin scattering, dielectric spectroscopy, and rheology measurements. Trehalose is of particular interest among the sugars because of its importance in biology, biochemistry, and the(More)
We measured the α-relaxation in trehalose glass by using photon correlation spectroscopy(PCS). The α-relaxations of trehalose glass showed a crossover from stretchedto compressed-exponential relaxations as the temperature increased. From the Raman scattering measurements, we found that the unusual compressed-exponential relaxation in trehalose glass was(More)
The effects of solvent polarity on absorption and fluorescence spectra of biologically active compounds (chlorogenic acid (CGA) and caffeic acids (CA)) have been investigated. In both spectra pronounced solvatochromic effects were observed with shift of emission peaks larger than the corresponding UV-vis electronic absorption spectra. From solvatochromic(More)
The interactions of caffeine (CF) with chlorogenic acid (CGA) and caffeic acid (CFA) were investigated by fluorescence quenching, UV/vis and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopic techniques. The results of the study indicated that the fluorescence quenching between caffeine and hydroxycinnamic acids could be rationalized in terms of static(More)
We studied the temperature dependent vibrational modes of the glycosidic bond in trehalose, sucrose, and maltose at wavenumbers ranging from 1000 to 1200 cm(-1). We found that the slope of temperature dependent Raman shifts of the glycosidic bond in trehalose and sucrose changed at temperatures around 120 degrees C, indicating a bond length or a bond angle(More)
