Origin of attraction and directionality of the pi/pi interaction: model chemistry calculations of benzene dimer interaction.
A model chemistry for the evaluation of intermolecular interaction between aromatic molecules (AIMI Model) has been developed. The CCSD(T) interaction energy at the basis set limit has been estimatedExpand

CH/π hydrogen bonds in organic and organometallic chemistry
This treatise is an update to a preceding highlight (CH/π hydrogen bonds in crystals) published in this journal 5 years ago (M. Nishio, CrystEngComm, 2004, 6, 130–156). After the introductory partExpand

Size effects of single-walled carbon nanotubes on in vivo and in vitro pulmonary toxicity
Abstract To elucidate the effect of size on the pulmonary toxicity of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs), we prepared two types of dispersed SWCNTs, namely relatively thin bundles with shortExpand

O8 cluster structure of the epsilon phase of solid oxygen.
Despite many experimental and theoretical studies, the crystal structure of the epsilon phase of solid oxygen has not been determined. We performed powder x-ray diffraction experiments and theExpand

The Magnitude of the CH/π Interaction between Benzene and Some Model Hydrocarbons
High-level ab initio calculations were carried out to evaluate the interaction between the π face of benzene and hydrocarbon molecules (methane, ethane, ethylene, and acetylene). IntermolecularExpand

The contribution of the median preoptic nucleus to renal sympathetic nerve activity increased by intracerebroventricular injection of hypertonic saline in the rat
The median preoptic nucleus (MnPO) of the hypothalamus is involved in the osmotic control of neurohypophysial hormone release and drinking behavior. At the same time, renal sympathetic nerves exertExpand

Tissue distribution and clearance of intravenously administered titanium dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles
Abstract The organ-tissue distribution and clearance of Degussa P25 TiO2 nanoparticles were determined after intravenous administration to rats (0.95 mg/kg bodyweight) using an inductively coupledExpand

CH/π Interaction in the Crystal Structure of Organic Compounds. A Database Study
The CH/π interaction is a weak molecular force occurring between CH groups and π-groups. A study was carried out by use of the Cambridge Structural Database in order to obtain insights into theExpand

A review of toxicity studies of single-walled carbon nanotubes in laboratory animals.
We summarized the findings of in vivo toxicity studies of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) in laboratory animals. The large majority addressed the pulmonary toxicity of SWCNTs in rodents.Expand

Differential regulation of estrogen receptor alpha and beta mRNAs in the rat uterus during pregnancy and labor: possible involvement of estrogen receptors in oxytocin receptor regulation.
Oxytocin receptor (OTR) mRNA levels in the uterus dramatically increase in the near term human and rat. Estrogen is believed to be a potent stimulator of OTR mRNA expression. However, estrogen doesExpand
