In recent years many experimentalists have reported an anomalously enhanced thermal conductivity in liquid suspensions of nanoparticles. Despite the importance of this effect for heat transfer applications, no agreement has emerged about the mechanism of this phenomenon, or even about the experimentally observed magnitude of the enhancement. To address(More)
We show that granular media, consisting of metallic microparticles immersed in a poorly conducting liquid in a strong dc electric field, self-assemble into a rich variety of novel phases. These phases include static precipitates: honeycombs and Wigner crystals; and novel dynamic condensates: toroidal vortices and pulsating rings. The observed structures are(More)
We carried out experimental studies of the self-assembly of metallic micron-size particles in poorly conducting liquid subject to a constant electric field. Depending on the experimental conditions, the particles self-assemble into long chains directed along the electric field lines and form vortices and other structures. The vortices perform Brownian-type(More)
Upon heating in a dry atmosphere, benzenehexasulfonic acid forms three cyclic anhydrides. Mono- and dianhydride do not hydrolyze readily due their flatter structures compared to the hydrolysis products. The trianhydride appears more to be reactive toward hydrolysis. In solutions, the mono- and dianhydride undergo ring-shift tautomerization, which is in the(More)
A mathematical framework is presented for the quantitative analysis of in situ potential modulation spectroelectrochemical techniques based on phase-sensitive detection for the study of solution-phase redox systems under strict diffusion control. In the case of arrangements in which the probing beam is parallel to the electrode surface, the phase of the(More)
