Thermoelectric effect is studied in an Aharonov-Bohm interferometer with an embedded quantum dot (QD) in the Coulomb blockade regime. The electrical conductance, electron thermal conductance, thermopower, and thermoelectric figure-of-merit are calculated by using the Keldysh Green's function method. It is found that the figure-of-merit ZT of the QD ring may(More)
Spin-dependent transport through a quantum-dot (QD) ring coupled to ferromagnetic leads with noncollinear magnetizations is studied theoretically. Tunneling current, current spin polarization and tunnel magnetoresistance (TMR) as functions of the bias voltage and the direct coupling strength between the two leads are analyzed by the nonequilibrium Green's(More)
Pekinenin C is a casbane diterpenoid separated from the root of the traditional Chinese medicine, Euphorbia pekinensis Rupr., which is used as drug for the treatment of edema, ascites, and hydrothorax. Whereas pekinenin C exhibits severe cytotoxicity, the exact toxicity mechanism is unclear. In this study, the effects of pekinenin C on cell inhibition, cell(More)
The title bimetallic compound, [PtCl(2){Co(C(17)H(14)P)(2)}]PF(6), was obtained by reaction of 1,1'-bis-(diphenyl-phosphino)cobalto-cenium hexa-fluorido-phosphate with bis-(acetonitrile)di-chloridoplatinum. The Pt(II) ion is four-coordinated in a slightly distorted square-planar environment by two P atoms of the 1,1'-bis-(diphenyl-phosphino)cobaltocenium(More)
