Using a hydrazone-protected benzenediazonium salt to introduce a near-monolayer of benzaldehyde on glassy carbon surfaces.
A methodology is described for introducing a thin layer of covalently attached benzaldehyde on glassy carbon surfaces using aryl diazonium chemistry. Usually the electroreduction of aryl diazoniumExpand

Controlled growth and formation of SAMs investigated by atomic force microscopy.
Recently we reported a simple method for obtaining both monolayer thickness and surface patterning using self-assembled monolayers (SAMs). Here we presented a straightforward method for controllingExpand

Effect of lateral morphology formation of polymer blend towards patterning silane-based SAMs using selective dissolution method.
A number of strategies have been developed including soft lithography and photolithography for patterning various surfaces. Here we have discussed a customized strategy for surface patterning ofExpand

Temperature-induced formation of strong gels of acrylamide-based polyelectrolytes.
Very strong physical gels have been formed by moderate temperature increases of concentrated aqueous dispersions of acrylamide-based copolymers. The results of rheometry, confocal laser scanningExpand

The opposite effects of Cu(II) and Fe(III) on the assembly of glucagon amyloid fibrils
A few transition metal ions are strongly implicated as co-factors in modulating the aggregation of amyloid peptides, which is believed to be a key factor in regulating the cytotoxicity of peptides.Expand

Cyanopyridine based conjugated polymer-synthesis and characterization
Abstract Two novel D-A polymers containing pyridine with vinylene spacer, P1 and P2 were synthesised through Heck polymerisation. In both the polymers, pyridine is linked with two donor phenylene atExpand

Growth performance of black tiger shrimp (Penaeus monodon) in substrate based zerowater exchange system
To evaluate the effect of periphyton based system, an on–station grow-out trial of black tiger shrimp, Penaeus monodon was carried out for 130 days using with (Ts) and without (Tc) submergedExpand
