G protein activation by the agonist-occupied nociceptin- (orphanin FQ-) receptor in rat cerebral cortex was studied by characterizing the nociceptin-stimulated binding of the radiolabeled guanylyl triphosphate (GTP) analog 35S-guanylyl-5'-O-(gamma-thio)-triphosphate (GTPgammaS). Using 3H-Tyr14- and 125I-Tyr14-nociceptin in saturation and displacement(More)

The depletion of traditional energy resources has stimulated signifi cant research interest in developing renewable energy sources, including solar radiation, wind, and waves. [ 1 ] Because of the intermittent availability of these resources, the exploitation of their full potential requires the development of energy storage systems. Lithium-ion batteries(More)
A new amorphous compound with the initial atomic composition Al 43 Li 43 Y 6 Ni 8 applied as electrode material for Li-ion batteries is investigated. Unlike other amorphous compounds so-far investigated as anode materials, it already contains Li as a base element in the uncycled state. The amorphous compound powder is prepared by high energy ball milling of(More)
Hexagonal Aluminium nitride (h-AlN) is an important wide-bandgap semiconductor material which is conventionally fabricated by high temperature carbothermal reduction of alumina under toxic ammonia atmosphere. Here we report a simple, low cost and potentially scalable mechanochemical procedure for the green synthesis of nanostructured h-AlN from a powder(More)
With Fe2O3 as a proof-of-concept, free-standing nanomembrane structure is demonstrated to be highly advantageous to improve the performance of Li-ion batteries. The Fe2O3 nanomembrane electrodes exhibit ultra-long cycling life at high current rates with satisfactory capacity (808 mAh g(-1) after 1000 cycles at 2 C and 530 mAh g(-1) after 3000 cycles at 6 C)(More)
