An iodinated analog of the sulfonylurea, glyburide, has been synthesized which can be labeled to high specific activity and used to photolabel the sulfonylurea receptor. 5-Iodo-2-hydroxy-"glyburide", has an iodo group replacing the chlorine at position 5 and a methoxy residue replacing the hydroxy group at position 2 on the benzamido ring. This analog(More)
Despite recent progress in producing transparent and bendable thin-film transistors using graphene and carbon nanotubes, the development of stretchable devices remains limited either by fragile inorganic oxides or polymer dielectrics with high leakage current. Here we report the fabrication of highly stretchable and transparent field-effect transistors(More)
We report a coaxial fiber supercapacitor, which consists of carbon microfiber bundles coated with multiwalled carbon nanotubes as a core electrode and carbon nanofiber paper as an outer electrode. The ratio of electrode volumes was determined by a half-cell test of each electrode. The capacitance reached 6.3 mF cm(-1) (86.8 mF cm(-2)) at a core electrode(More)
n-Butyrate inhibits the histone deacetylase from higher cells, but has little effect on the enzyme activity in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Spermine and spermidine were therefore tested as potential yeast deacetylase inhibitors and found to inhibit fully the enzyme at 2 and 5 mM, respectively. The utility of these inhibitors was demonstrated by showing that 2(More)
Seamless stitching of graphene domains on polished copper (111) is proved clearly not only at atomic scale by scanning tunnelling microscopy (STM) and transmission electron micoscopy (TEM), but also at the macroscale by optical microscopy after UV-treatment. Using this concept of seamless stitching, synthesis of 6 cm × 3 cm monocrystalline graphene without(More)
We report a chemically conjugated bilayer graphene field effect transistor demonstrating a high on/off ratio without significant degradation of the on-current and mobility. This was realized by introducing environmentally stable benzyl viologen as an electron-donating group and atmospheric dopants as an electron-withdrawing group, which were used as dopants(More)
Two-dimensional layered transition-metal dichalcogenides have attracted considerable interest for their unique layer-number-dependent properties. In particular, vertical integration of these two-dimensional crystals to form van der Waals heterostructures can open up a new dimension for the design of functional electronic and optoelectronic devices. Here we(More)
Semiconducting transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs) are promising materials for photodetection over a wide range of visible wavelengths. Photodetection is generally realized via a phototransistor, photoconductor, p-n junction photovoltaic device, and thermoelectric device. The photodetectivity, which is a primary parameter in photodetector design, is(More)
Memristors such as phase-change memory and resistive memory have been proposed to emulate the synaptic activities in neuromorphic systems. However, the low reliability of these types of memories is their biggest challenge for commercialization. Here, a highly reliable memristor array using floating-gate memory operated by two terminals (source and drain)(More)
