Board Connections and M&A Transactions
We examine M&A transactions between firms with current board connections and find that acquirers obtain higher announcement returns in transactions with a first-degree connection where the acquirerExpand

Vice or Virtue? The Impact of Corporate Social Responsibility on Executive Compensation
We empirically examine the impact of corporate social responsibility (CSR) on CEO compensation using a large sample of the US firms from 1996 to 2010. We develop and test two hypotheses, theExpand

Chemical reduction of three-dimensional silica micro-assemblies into microporous silicon replicas
The carbothermal reduction of silica into silicon requires the use of temperatures well above the silicon melting point (≥2,000 °C). Solid silicon has recently been generated directly from silica atExpand

Common Auditors in M&A Transactions
We examine merger and acquisition (M&A) transactions in which the acquirer and the target share a common auditor. We predict that a common auditor can help merging firms reduce uncertainty throughoutExpand

High thermal conductivity of chain-oriented amorphous polythiophene.
Polymers are usually considered thermal insulators, because the amorphous arrangement of the molecular chains reduces the mean free path of heat-conducting phonons. The most common method to increaseExpand

Identification and Design of Peptides for the Rapid, High-Yield Formation of Nanoparticulate TiO2 from Aqueous Solutions at Room Temperature
Titania (TiO2) nanoparticles are widely used, or are under active development, for a range of applications in (photo)catalysis, photovoltaics, enzyme support, energy storage, and photonics. TheExpand

Identification of peptides capable of inducing the formation of titania but not silica via a subtractive bacteriophage display approach
A “subtractive” bacteriophage display biopanning approach has been used to identify 12-mer peptides that are capable of binding selectively to, and inducing the precipitation of, titania but notExpand
