Well-aligned Cu(OH)2 nanoribbon and CuO nanorod arrays have been prepared on copper substrates by liquid-solid reactions. The effects of temperature, reaction time, solvent, and pH value on the morphology and composition of the products are systematically studied. Using the Cu(OH)2 nanoribbons array as a reactive and sacrificial template, we have(More)
Silver nanodendrites are synthesized by a simple surfactant-free method using a suspension of zinc microparticles as a heterogeneous reducing agent. Structural characterizations suggest the preferential growth along 100 and 111 directions by oriented attachment of silver nanocrystals in the diffusion limit, leading to the formation of silver nanodendrites(More)
The purpose of the study is to analyze and compare differences in the optical properties between normal and adenomatous human colon tissues in vitro at 630-, 680-, 720-, 780-, 850-, and 890-nm wavelengths using a Ti:sapphire laser. The optical parameters of tissue samples are determined using a double integrating sphere setup at seven different laser(More)
Monomethyl poly(ethylene glycol) (mPEG)-modified bovine serum albumin (BSA) conjugates (BSA-mPEG) were obtained by the mild Cu(I)-mediated cycloaddition reaction of azided BSA (BSA-N(3) ) and alkyne-terminated mPEG. The structure and characteristics of BSA-mPEG conjugates were thoroughly investigated. There were about two PEG chains conjugated onto each BSA(More)
We report a study of the optical and electric properties of Au nanoparticle networks grown on the porous alumina membrane by dry atom sputtering deposition approach. An effective cluster model was developed to evaluate the dielectric function and the electrical conductivities of the nanoparticle networks by taking into account the effects of the Au particle(More)
The highly bulky bis-pocket corrole 5,10,15-tris(2,4,6-triphenylphenyl)corrole (H(3)TTPPC) has been synthesized. Resonance Raman spectroscopy revealed a triply bonded Mn[triple bond]O moiety in its manganese(V)-oxo complex. Direct oxygen atom transfer from (TTPPC)Mn[triple bond]O to styrene was confirmed by an (18)O-labeling experiment. The (TTPPC)Mn(III)(More)
Two novel ruthenium(II) complexes, [Ru(pztp)2(phen)](ClO4)2 and [Ru(pztp)2(bpy)](ClO4)2, have been synthesized and characterized by UV/Vis and 1H NMR spectroscopies and mass spectrometry. The MeCN solutions of both complexes display fluorescence that was found to be highly sensitive to the presence and concentration of water. The complexes behave like a(More)
We report on the successful synthesis of silver sulfide (Ag(2)S) nanowires by a simple and mild gas-solid reaction approach. For the nanowire synthesis, a preoxidized silver substrate is exposed to an atmosphere of an O(2)/H(2)S mixture at room temperature or slightly above. The resulting Ag(2)S nanowires are phase pure with a monoclinic crystal structure(More)
Two asymmetric tridentate copper(II) complexes, [Cu(dppt)Cl(2)].0.25H(2)O (1) (dppt=3-(1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)-5,6-diphenyl-as-triazine) and [Cu(pta)Cl(2)] (2) (pta=3-(1,10-phenanthrolin-2-yl)-as-triazino[5,6-f]acenaphthylene), have been prepared and characterized by elemental analysis, IR and Fast atomic bombardment mass spectra. Complex 1 has also been(More)
We propose a gauge model where quark-lepton universality is an accidental symmetry which is only approximate, in analogy to the well-accepted notion that strong isospin is accidental and approximate. This is a natural framework for explaining possible small deviations of quark-lepton universality which is applicable to the recently reported apparent(More)
