Highly porous N-doped activated carbon monoliths (ACMs) are fabricated by carbonization and physical activation of mesoporous polyacrylonitrile (PAN) monoliths in the presence of CO(2). The monoliths exhibit exceptionally high CO(2) uptake; 5.14 mmol g(-1) at ambient pressure and temperature and 11.51 mmol g(-1) at ambient pressure and 273 K.
Mesoporous polyacrylonitrile (PAN) monolith has been fabricated by a template-free approach using the unique affinity of PAN towards a water/dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) mixture. A newly developed Thermally Induced Phase Separation Technique (TIPS) has been used to obtain the polymer monoliths and their microstructures have been controlled by optimizing the… (More)
Iron containing porous organic polymers (Fe-POPs) have been synthesized by a facile one-pot bottom-up approach to porphyrin chemistry by an extended aromatic substitution reaction between pyrrole and aromatic dialdehydes in the presence of small amount of Fe(III). The Fe-POPs possess very high BET surface area, large micropores and showed excellent CO(2)… (More)
Attractor reconstruction (AR) analysis has been used previously to quantify the variability in arterial blood pressure (ABP) signals. Since ABP signals are only available in a minority of clinical scenarios, we sought to determine whether AR could also be performed on more widely available pho-toplethysmogram (PPG) signals. AR analysis was performed on… (More)
