The properties of several cinnamic acid compounds used as matrices for matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) were investigated as standard dried droplet (DD) and vacuum sublimed preparations. The differences between both preparation methods were analyzed with regard to matrix grain size, internal ion(More)
Analysis of interior samples of the Murchison meteorite by two routes yielded an upper limit of 2 ppb for its C60 content, as compared to parts per million levels for individual polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Provided the samples contain an interstellar component, which is probable since Murchison hydrocarbons contain excess deuterium, this result(More)
Optical coatings with enhanced roughness offer promising prospects for ultrahydrophobic transparent surfaces with controlled scatter losses. Our approach links roughness characteristics with both wetting behavior and scattering. Experiments with rough oxide layers yielded surfaces with a high water contact angle.
We present linear (AB)(n)() multiblock copolymers that exhibit a thermally induced reversible alteration of the surface composition at a sharply defined transition temperature T(s) of 120-170 degrees C depending on the polymer structure. At temperatures below T(s) the surface consists of block A, a 4,4'-methylenediphenyl diisocyanate (4,4'-MDI) type(More)
