Crystalline Ropes of Metallic Carbon Nanotubes
X-ray diffraction and electron microscopy showed that fullerene single-wall nanotubes (SWNTs) are nearly uniform in diameter and that they self-organize into “ropes,” which consist of 100 to 500 SWNTs in a two-dimensional triangular lattice with a lattice constant of 17 angstroms.
Rates of Shoreline Progradation during the Last 1700 Years at Beachmere, Southeastern Queensland, Australia, Based on Optically Stimulated Luminescence Dating of Beach Ridges
Abstract The optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating method was used to determine the geochronology of seven relict beach ridges that sit immediately behind the modern beach at Beachmere, a
High conductivity transparent carbon nanotube films deposited from superacid.
This work demonstrates that CNT transparent films have not reached the conductivity limit; continued improvements will enable these films to be used as the transparent electrode for applications in solid state lighting, LCD displays, touch panels, and photovoltaics.
Durable transparent carbon nanotube films for flexible device components
article i nfo Article history: This paper describes a durable carbon nanotube (CNT) film for flexible devices and its mechanical properties. Films as thin as 10 nm thick have properties approaching
Sodium Methyl Carbonate as an Effective C1 Synthon. Synthesis of Carboxylic Acids, Benzophenones, and Unsymmetrical Ketones.
Reported is the synthesis of carboxylic acids, symmetrical ketones, and unsymmetrical ketones with selectivity achieved by exploiting the differential reactivity of sodium methyl carbonate with
CO2-Catalysed aldol condensation of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural and acetone to a jet fuel precursor
CO2 can act as a catalyst for the production of bio-jet fuel precursors through aldol condensation. CO2-Catalysed aldol condensation of HMF with acetone gives a >95% yield of
Use of a switchable-hydrophilicity solvent as both a solvent and a catalyst in aldol condensation
CO2 switchable N,N-dimethylcyclohexylamine was used as both a recyclable catalyst and solvent for aldol condensation, giving good to excellent yields.
UV-Vis as quantification tool for solubilized lignin following a single-shot steam process.
UV-Vis quantification of lignin was found suitable for different types of biomass making this a timesaving analytical system that could lead to uses as Process Analytical Tool (PAT) in biorefineries utilizing steam processes or comparable approaches.
Inline Analysis of the Dry Reforming Process through Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy and Use of Nitrogen as an Internal Standard for Online Gas Chromatography Analysis
In this work, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) was used as a process analytical tool (PAT), allowing for quantification of the output gas from a dry reforming of methane (DRM) reaction.
