  • Strong, Light, Multifunctional Fibers of Carbon Nanotubes with Ultrahigh Conductivity 

    Behabtu, Natnael; Young, Colin C.; Tsentalovich, Dmitri E.; Kleinerman, Olga; Wang, Xuan; Ma, Anson W.K.; Bengio, E. Amram; ter Waarbeek, Ron F.; de Jong, Jorrit J.; Hoogerwerf, Ron E.; Fairchild, Steven B.; Ferguson, John B.; Maruyama, Benji; Kono, Junichiro; Talmon, Yeshayahu; Cohen, Yachin; Otto, Marcin J.; Pasquali, Matteo (2013)
    Broader applications of carbon nanotubes to real-world problems have largely gone unfulfilled because of difficult material synthesis and laborious processing. We report high-performance multifunctional carbon nanotube ...
  • Switchable Diamine Surfactants for CO2 Mobility Control in Enhanced Oil Recovery and Sequestration 

    Elhag, Amro S.; Chen, Yunshen; Reddy, Prathima P.; Noguera, Jose A.; Ou, Anne Marie; Hirasaki, George J.; Nguyen, Quoc P.; Biswal, Sibani L.; Johnston, Keith P. (2014)
    The design of switchable amine surfactants for CO2 EOR in carbonate reservoirs at high temperatures is challenging because of the increase in the pH due to dissolution of calcium carbonate at acidic conditions. The increased ...
  • Synergistic Gold-Bismuth Catalysis for Non-Mercury Hydrochlorination of Acetylene to Vinyl Chloride Monomer 

    Zhou, Kai; Wang, Wei; Zhao, Zhun; Luo, Guohua; Miller, Jeffrey T.; Wong, Michael S.; Wei, Fei (2014)
    Gold has been proposed as an environmentally friendly catalyst for acetylene hydrochlorination for vinyl chloride monomer synthesis by replacing the commercially used mercury catalyst. However, long life with excellent ...
  • Synthesis of oligo(poly(ethylene glycol) fumarate) 

    Kinard, Lucas A.; Kasper, F. Kurtis; Mikos, Antonios G. (1905-07-04)
    This protocol describes the synthesis of oligo(poly(ethylene glycol) fumarate) (OPF) (1–35 kDa)(a polymer useful for tissue engineering applications) by a one-pot reaction of poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) and fumaryl ...
  • TFEB regulates lysosomal proteostasis 

    Song, Wensi; Wang, Fan; Savini, Marzia; Ake, Ashley; di Ronza, Alberto; Sardiello, Marco; Segatori, Laura (2013)
    Loss-of-function diseases are often caused by destabilizing mutations that lead to protein misfolding and degradation. Modulating the innate protein homeostasis (proteostasis) capacity may lead to rescue of native folding ...
  • Theoretical analysis of selectivity mechanisms in molecular transport through channels and nanopores 

    Agah, Shaghayegh; Pasquali, Matteo; Kolomeisky, Anatoly B. (2015)
    Selectivity is one of the most fundamental concepts in natural sciences, and it is also critically important in various technological, industrial, and medical applications. Although there are many experimental methods that ...
  • Thermodynamic perturbation theory for associating fluids with small bond angles: Effects of steric hindrance, ring formation, and double bonding 

    Marshall, Bennett D.; Chapman, Walter G. (2013-05-22)
    We develop a comprehensive approach to model associating fluids with small bond angles using Wertheim’s perturbation theory. We show theoretically and through Monte Carlo simulations that as bond angle is varied various ...
  • Thermoresponsive PNIPAAM bottlebrush polymers with tailored side-chain length and end-group structure 

    Li, Xianyu; ShamsiJazeyi, Hadi; Pesek, Stacy L.; Agrawal, Aditya; Hammouda, Boualem; Verduzco, Rafael (2014)
    We explore the phase behaviour, solution conformation, and interfacial properties of bottlebrush polymers with side-chains comprised of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) (PNIPAAM), a thermally responsive polymer that exhibits a ...
  • Three new branched chain equations of state based on Wertheim’s perturbation theory 

    Marshall, Bennett D.; Chapman, Walter G. (2013-05-03)
    In this work, we present three new branched chain equations of state (EOS) based on Wertheim’s perturbation theory. The first represents a slightly approximate general branched chain solution of Wertheim’s second order ...
  • Transport mechanism in granular Ni deposited on carbon nanotubes fibers 

    Salvato, M.; Lucci, M.; Ottaviani, I.; Cirillo, M.; Tamburri, E.; Orlanducci, S.; Terranova, M.L.; Notarianni, M.; Young, C.C.; Behabtu, N.; Pasquali, M. (2012-09-12)
    We investigate the transport properties of granular nickel electrodeposited on carbon nanotube fibers by measuring the electrical resistance and the current voltage characteristics as a function of the temperature. The ...
  • Visualizing oil displacement with foam in a microfluidic device with permeability contrast 

    Conn, Charles A.; Ma, Kun; Hirasaki, George J.; Biswal, Sibani Lisa (2014)
    Foam mobility control and novel oil displacement mechanisms were observed in a microfluidic device representing a porous media system with layered permeability. Foam was pre-generated using a flow focusing microfluidic ...
  • Volcano-shape glycerol oxidation activity of palladium-decorated gold nanoparticles 

    Zhao, Zhun; Arentz, Joni; Pretzer, Lori A.; Limpornpipat, Pongsak; Clomburg, James M.; Gonzalez, Ramon; Schweitzer, Neil M.; Wu, Tianpin; Miller, Jeffrey T.; Wong, Michael S. (2014)
    Bimetallic PdAu catalysts are more active than monometallic ones for the selective oxidation of alcohols, but the reasons for improvement remain insufficiently detailed. A metal-on-metal material can probe the structure–catalysis ...
