Electrochemical polymerization of aniline has been studied using real-time spectroelectrochemical experiments conducted concurrently with potentiodynamic scans in a nitric acid electrolyte with its pH adjusted to 0.50. Two-dimensional correlation spectral analysis and subsequent extraction of pure component spectra as well as their relative concentration(More)
Graphene sheets have the potential for practical applications in electrochemical devices, but their development has been impeded by critical problems with aggregation of graphene sheets. Here, we demonstrated a facile and bottom-up approach for fabrication of DNA sensor device using water-soluble sulfonated reduced graphene oxide (SRGO) sheets via(More)
A quantitative analysis of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) in samples of human blood serum by fluorescence immunochromatography using monoclonal antibodies to PSA was developed. The fluorescence immunochromatographic analysis system is composed of anti-PSA-monoclonal antibody (mAb), fluorescence conjugates in detection solution, a immunochromatographic(More)
The water-urea-beta-lactoglobulin interaction was studied by means of principal component analysis (PCA) and two-dimensional correlation spectroscopy applied to the urea concentration-dependent FTIR spectra of aqueous urea-protein solutions. The two nu(CO) and nu(as)(CN) bands coming from urea's absorbance, instead of the amide bands arising from protein,(More)
A rapid and highly sensitive bicinchoninic acid (BCA) reagent-based protein quantitation tool was developed using competitive resonance Raman (RR) and surface-enhanced resonance Raman scattering (SERRS) methods. A chelation reaction between BCA and Cu(+), which is reduced by protein in an alkaline environment, is exploited to create a BCA-Cu(+) complex that(More)
In order to provide new insight into the molecular mechanism of perforating trauma-induced cataract formation in an 8-week-old ddY mouse lens, we performed an in situ investigation into changes in the water-protein and/or protein-protein interactions by using 500 MHz (1)H-NMR spectroscopy, and into structural alterations in lens proteins by using Raman(More)
In this study, we demonstrate the potentials and pitfalls of using various waterfall plots, such as conventional waterfall plots, two-dimensional (2D) gradient maps, moving window two-dimensional analysis (MW2D), perturbation-correlation moving window two-dimensional analysis (PCMW2D), and moving window principal component analysis two-dimensional(More)
A novel photosensitive polyimide, poly(4,4'-stilbenylene 4,4'-oxidiphthalimide) (ODPA-Stilbene PSPI) was newly synthesized. The most surprising feature of this PSPI is that the PSPI films irradiated with linear polarized ultraviolet light (LPUVL) can favorably induce a unidirectional alignment of liquid crystals (LCs) in contact with the film surface and(More)
The two-dimensional (2D) infrared correlation spectra obtained from the reaction time- and concentration-dependent IR spectra elucidates the reaction of CO2 and NH3 in an aqueous solution for CO2 absorption. In the synchronous 2D correlation spectra, the interrelation of the proton with carbamate and bicarbonate indicates that the pH level affected the(More)
