Ice nucleation activity in various tissues of Rhododendron flower buds: their relevance to extraorgan freezing
Wintering flower buds of cold hardy Rhododendron japonicum cooled slowly to subfreezing temperatures are known to undergo extraorgan freezing, whose mechanisms remain obscure. We revisited thisExpand

Development of a new vitrification solution, VSL, and its application to the cryopreservation of gentian axillary buds
Vitrification methods are convenient for cryopreserving plant specimens, as the specimens are plunged directly into liquid nitrogen (LN) from ambient temperatures. However, tissues and species withExpand

Interfacial Films and Wetting Behavior of the Air/Hexadecane/Aqueous Solution of a Surfactant System
The tension of the three interfaces and the dihedral angle of the lens of the air/hexadecane lens/aqueous solution of tetramethylammonium dodecyl sulfate (TMADS) system were measured as a function ofExpand

Temperature Effect on the Adsorption of Fluorooctanols at the Hexane/Water Interface
The interfacial tensions of the hexane solution of fluorooctanols (1,1,2,2-tetrahydrotridecafluorooctanol, TFC8OH, and 1,1-dihydropentadecafluorooctanol, DFC8OH) against water were measured as aExpand

Thermodynamic Study on Phase Transition in Adsorbed Film of Fluoroalkanol at the Hexane/Water Interface. 7. Pressure Effect on the Miscibility in the Adsorbed Film of Alkanol and Fluoroalkanol Mixture
The Miscibility of 1-icosanol (C20OH) and 1,1,2,2-tetrahydroheptadecafluorodecanol (FC10OH) in the adsorbed film at the hexane/water interface was studied by measuring the pressure dependence ofExpand

Dihedral angle of lens and interfacial tension of air/long chain alcohol/water systems. 2
The dihedral angle of an alcohol lens at the air/water interface and the three kinds of interfacial tensions of air/1-octanol/water and air/1-decanol/water systems have been measured as a function ofExpand

A competitive relationship between wetting of oil lens and condensed film formation of fluorinated alkanol at the air-water interface
We have previously studied the wetting behaviour of hexadecane (C16) lens on the dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB) aqueous solution from interfacial tensiometry and ellipsometry. It is foundExpand
