Measurement of interfacial processes at electrode surfaces with the electrochemical quartz crystal microbalance
I. Introductlon The last 10-15 years have seen electrochemista applying more and more sophisticated instrumental techniques to studies of electrode surfaces, both because of the increased
Epitaxy and Molecular Organization on Solid Substrates
The recent emergence of molecular films as candidates for functional electronic materials has prompted numerous investigations of the underlying mechanisms responsible for their structure and
Real‐Time Measurement of Anchorage‐Dependent Cell Adhesion Using a Quartz Crystal Microbalance
The results demonstrate that the QCM is a viable technique for monitoring anchorage‐dependent cell attachment and detachment on surfaces (caused by stimulatory, inhibitory, or cytopathic effects).
Crystal Growth Inhibitors for the Prevention of l-Cystine Kidney Stones Through Molecular Design
AFM observations are mirrored by reduced crystal yield and crystal size in the presence of L-CDME and L-CME, collectively suggesting a new pathway to the prevention of l-cystine stones by rational design of crystal growth inhibitors.
Adhesion at calcium oxalate crystal surfaces and the effect of urinary constituents.
Force measurements demonstrate that adhesion of functional groups and binding of soluble additives, including urinary macromolecules, to COM crystal surfaces are highly specific in nature, suggesting a path toward a better understanding of kidney stone disease and the eventual design of therapeutic agents.
Scanning Electrochemical Mass Sensitivity Mapping of the Quartz Crystal Microbalance in Liquid Media
The mass sensitivity distribution of the quartz crystal microbalance was determined in situ for plano-plano and plano-convex AT-cut quartz resonators. The method involved measuring the frequency
Operation of an ultrasensitive 30-MHz quartz crystal microbalance in liquids
A new ultrasensitive quartz crystal microbalance (QCM), based on chemically milled 30-MHz AT-cut shear mode crystals, for operations in gas and liquid phases, is described. In liquid media, changes
Versatile and Resilient Hydrogen-Bonded Host Frameworks.
This Account reviews discoveries in the laboratory during the past decade related to a series of host frameworks based on guanidinium cations and interchangeable organosulfonate anions, in which the 3-fold symmetry and hydrogen-bonding complementarity of these ions prompt the formation of a two-dimensional (2-D) quasi-hexagonal hydrogen- bonding network.
Manipulating crystal growth and polymorphism by confinement in nanoscale crystallization chambers.
Recent studies of the polymorphic and thermotropic properties of crystalline materials embedded in the nanometer-scale pores of porous glass powders and porous block-polymer-derived plastic monoliths are reviewed, suggesting a reliable approach to studying the phase behaviors of compounds at the nanoscale.
