Various viologens have been used to control the doping of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) via direct redox reactions. A new method of extracting neutral viologen (V(0)) was introduced using a biphase of toluene and viologen-dissolved water. A reductant of sodium borohydride transferred positively charged viologen (V(2+)) into V(0), where the reduced(More)
To obtain the superhydrophobic water-repellent cotton fabrics, cotton fabrics were treated with silica nanoparticles and/or a cost-effective water-repellent agent (WR agent). Two different silica nanoparticles were synthesized via a sol-gel process and their shapes, sizes, and compositions were characterized. It was found that silica particles are spherical(More)
Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) were implanted with thermally decomposed oxygen (O2+) and nitrogen (N2+) ions at an acceleration voltage of 20 V. With a low dose of oxygen ions, the CNT-FET exhibited p-type behaviors with substantial changes in threshold voltage and in the slope of the source-drain current (l(sd)). However, at high dosages, the device exhibited(More)
BACKGROUND We evaluated the vascular complications and success rate of manual compression in achieving hemostasis and access site closure after transfemoral arterial extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) decannulation. METHODS Between February 2010 and July 2014, 63 patients who underwent veno-arterial ECMO were retrospectively studied. Patients who(More)
Superior vena cava (SVC) syndrome refers to a medical emergency resulting from compression of the SVC. It requires early diagnosis and treatment, and is usually caused by malignant tumors; rarely, mediastinal tuberculous lymphadenitis can cause SVC syndrome. Here, we present a case study of an immunocompetent 61-year-old woman who presented with acute onset(More)
