Nanostar and nanonetwork crystals were prepared from fully conjugated poly(3-(2-ethylhexyl)thiophene)-block-polythiophene (P3EHT-b-PT) via a simple INCP process. The structural conformation of the nanocrystals was investigated in detail, revealing that with an increase in the block length of PT, the morphology of the nanocrystals changed from nanospheres to(More)
Toroidal nanostructures are symmetrical ring-shaped structures with a central internal pore. Interestingly, in nature, many transmembrane proteins such as β-barrels and α-helical bundles have toroidal shapes. Because of this similarity, toroidal nanostructures can provide a template for the development of transmembrane channels. However, because of the lack(More)
Zero-dimensional (0D) nanospheres, 1D nanocaterpillars, and 3D aggregates are produced from simple diblock copolymers containing polyacetylene (PA) via in situ nanoparticlization of conjugated polymers. The diblock copolymers are prepared by ring-opening metathesis polymerization via one-pot sequential addition of an endo-tricyclo[4.2.2.0]deca-3,9-diene(More)
Here we report the spontaneous formation of switchable sheets in aqueous solution, which is based on bent-shaped aromatic amphiphiles containing m-pyridine units at the terminals and a hydrophilic dendron at the apex. The aromatic segments self-assemble into flat sheets consisting of a zigzag conformation through π-π stacking interactions. Notably, the(More)
of refractory plasmonic materials can be avoided with the proper material integration ( 6). TiN antennae have recently been shown to satisfy the stringent requirements for an optically efficient, durable HAMR near-field transducer, thereby paving the way to the next-generation data recording systems ( 6). The durability and refractory properties of TiN and(More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether rhythmic arm swing modulates the long latency effect of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) on soleus motoneuron pool excitability. Ten healthy humans rhythmically swung the left arm back and forth in a sitting position. The soleus H-reflex was evoked when the arm was in the backward swing phase.(More)
Semiconducting polymers have been widely investigated due to their intriguing optoelectronic properties and their high crystallinity that provides a strong driving force for self-assembly. Although there are various reports of successful self-assembly of nanostructures using semiconducting polymers, direct in situ self-assembly of these polymers into(More)
