EVIDENCE ACQUISITION Experts in PHSSR were consulted to identify 11 key published PHSSR studies.(More)
OBJECTIVE The importance of the built environment for physical activity has been recognized in recent decades, resulting in new research. This study aims to understand the current structure of physical activity and built environment (PABE) research and identify gaps to address as the field continues to rapidly develop.

In this paper, we studied the kinetics of the adsorption of poly(methyl methacrylate), PMMA, onto native aluminum oxide surfaces by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and reflection-absorption infrared spectroscopy, with the intent of tracking the various changes observed in the infrared spectrum of the adsorbed polymer layer as a function of adsorption time.(More)
