This study examined the effects of the combination of UV radiation and water limitation on the leaf photosynthesis, stomatal conductance, and terpene emissions of four Mediterranean species. 1-year-old seedlings of these Mediterranean species [Daphne gnidium L., Pistacia lentiscus L., Ilex aquifolium L. and Laurus nobilis L.] were grown under one of three(More)
In this work, we study the reinforcement of polymers by mechanically interlocked derivatives of single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs). We compare the mechanical properties of fibers made of polymers and of composites with pristine SWNTs, mechanically interlocked derivatives of SWNTs (MINTs), and the corresponding supramolecular models. Improvements of both(More)
A simple one-pot process to exfoliate graphite and synthesize nanographene-dimesitylporphyrin hybrids has been developed. Despite the bulky mesityl groups, which are expected to hinder the efficient π-π stacking between the porphyrin core and graphene, the liquid-phase exfoliation of graphite is significantly favored by the presence of the porphyrins.(More)
