Self-propagating high temperature reaction waves, leading to the synthesis of advanced materials, are investigated in a variety of heterogeneous reaction systems by using a digital high-speed microscopic video recording technique. It is shown that, although on the macroscopic length and time scales, the reaction appears to move in a steady mode, on the(More)
Most studies on endosymbiotic dinoflagellate algae (genus Symbiodinium) associated with scleractinian corals focus on tropical and sub-tropical reefs. Their diversity in outlying, non-reef coral communities at high latitudes is still not fully documented. In this study, we analyzed the Symbiodinium diversity associated with five scleractinian species(More)
Hydrogen absorption and desorption isotherms have been measured on ballmilled mixtures of LiH+Si powders to evaluate the thermodynamic parameters of these reversible reactions. The phase compositions at the various stages of reaction have been examined by Magic Angle Spinning-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (MAS-NMR) of the Li, H, and Si nuclei and powder x-ray(More)
The incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections after middle ear surgery has recently increased at our hospital. Most of these infections were thought to be hospital-acquired when medical personnel in contact with an MRSA-infected patient may have inadvertently transmitted the pathogen to other patients. To prevent further(More)
In this paper we report, for the first time, the synthesis and characterization of new zincosilicate Zn-SSZ-42. New method of synthesizing pure-silica SSZ-42 via the OH route without using F anions is presented. Furthermore, the synthesis and characterization of the novel layered zincosilicate and pure-silica designated as SSZ-71 are discussed.
