We have manufactured a highly conductive and stretchable composite by backfilling a preformed graphene/MWCNT aerogel with poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS). The electrical conductivity of our product can reach 2.8 S cm(-1) with only 1.3 wt% graphene/MWCNT loading, and remains constant after 100 times repeated stretching by 20% and 5000 times bending.
New flexible and conductive materials (FCMs) comprising a quartz fiber cloth (QFC) reinforced multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs)-carbon aerogel (QMCA) and poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS) have been successfully prepared. The QMCA-PDMS composite with a very low loading of MWCNTs (∼1.6 wt%) demonstrates enhanced performance in tensile strength (129.6 MPa),(More)
We have manufactured a highly conductive and stretchable composite by backfilling the 3D graphene-PEDOT:PSS skeleton with poly(dimethylsiloxane) (PDMS). The electrical conductivity of our product can reach 24 S cm(-1) with only 1.5 wt% graphene and 1.5 wt% PEDOT:PSS loading, and its resistance increased only 35% when stretched to 80% strain.
CONTEXT Previous population studies in evaluating the beneficial effects of capsaicin (CAP) have yielded inconclusive results, and the mechanisms responsible for possible benefit remain unclear. OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess the effect of dietary CAP on metabolic and immune profiles and its potential associations with gut microbial patterns in(More)
A thermo-regulated phase separable catalysis (TPSC) system for AGET ATRP based on a thermo-regulated ionic liquid was developed for the first time. The corresponding transition metal catalysts could be easily recovered and reused several times with negligible loss of catalytic activity.
The combination of carbon nanomaterial with three-dimensional (3D) porous polymer substrates has been demonstrated to be an effective approach to manufacture high-performance stretchable conductive materials (SCMs). However, it remains a challenge to fabricate 3D-structured SCMs with outstanding electrical conductivity capability under large strain in a(More)
Metabolic endotoxemia originating from dysbiotic gut microbiota has been identified as a primary mediator for triggering the chronic low-grade inflammation (CLGI) responsible for the development of obesity. Capsaicin (CAP) is the major pungent bioactivator in chili peppers and has potent anti-obesity functions, yet the mechanisms linking this effect to gut(More)
Facial micro-expressions are brief involuntary spontaneous facial expressions which can reveal suppressed affect. However, previous studies ignored that different face regions have different contributions to micro-expression recognition. In this study, we proposed a method which employs weight of feature and weighted fuzzy classification to enhance the(More)
The genus Pityocona is reviewed in China. Pityocona longovata sp. nov., P. transovata sp. nov., P. monoprocessa sp. nov., P. mastoidea sp. nov. and P. sinuosa sp. nov. are described as new; P. bifurcatus Wadhawan et Walia originally described from India is widely known in southern China as a pest of rice. Photos of adults and genitalia are provided, along(More)
