Fundamental growth principles of colloidal metal nanoparticles
a new perspective
In the past few decades, much effort was put into the development of synthetic strategies to produce nanoparticles of different sizes and morphologies and a large number of scientific contributions is dedicated to the ...
Switching Diarylethenes Reliably in Both Directions with Visible Light
A diarylethene photoswitch was covalently connected to two small triplet sensitizer moieties in a conjugated and nonconjugated fashion and the photochromic performance of the resulting compounds was investigated. In ...
Modification of the 6-Hydroxydopamine Technique for the Correct Determination of Superoxide Dismutase
Heikkila & Cabbat (Anal. Biochem. 75, 356-362 (1976)) have proposed the autoxidation of the 6-hydroxydopamine as a method to test Superoxide dismutase activity in biological samples. This method has several advantages ...
Thrombin induces broad spectrum proteolysis in human serum samples
Background: During clotting, α thrombin cleaves fibrinogen releasing fibrinopeptide A (FPA). FPA is easily identified in serum using matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight (MALDI-TOF) mass spectrometry ...
Numerically accurate linear response-properties in the configuration-interaction singles (CIS) approximation
In the present work, we report an efficient implementation of configuration interaction singles (CIS) excitation energies and oscillator strengths using the multi-resolution analysis (MRA) framework to address the basis-set ...
Gating the photochromism of an azobenzene by strong host–guest interactions in a divalent pseudorotaxane
The ability of an E-configured azobenzene guest to undergo photoisomerisation is controlled by the presence of a complementary host. Addition of base/acid allowed for a weakening/strengthening of the interactions in the ...
