Vertically aligned double- and single-walled carbon nanotubes (DWNTs and SWNTs) were synthesized on a substrate at 590 °C by hot-filament chemical vapor deposition. An optimized combination of iron and aluminum layers as the catalyst resulted in iron particles ranging from 1-5 nm floating in an aluminum matrix after annealing. Selective synthesis of DWNTs(More)
We report influence of encapsulated C 60 molecules on electron transport in carbon-nanotube peapod quantum dots. We find atomic-like behaviors with doubly degenerate electronic levels, which exist only around ground states, by single electron spectroscopy measured at low back-gate voltages (V bg). Correlation with presence of nearly free electrons (NFEs)(More)
In this study, we found that two sesquiterpene lactones, isobutyroylplenolin and arnicolide D, from Centipeda minima L. (Compositae) exerted stronger cytotoxic activity than cisplatin on the human colon carcinoma HT-29 cell line. Furthermore, the cytotoxicity of these two compounds on normal cells was weaker than that of cisplatin. Treatment with(More)
