From a single candle, both hydrophilic & hydrophobic layers could be produced/ 一本のロウソクから親水性と疎水性の両方の粒子層が作製できた

From a candle burning, we developed assembly routes to form hydrophilic or hydrophobic layers of carbonaceous nanoparticles. ロウソク燃焼の「煤」を用いて、親水性または疎水性を有するナノ粒子膜の作製する方法を開発。5000年前に中国で開発された、従来の「墨」技術と同じかどうか?

Other “intro” of papers from our lab >> /tag/paper/ HIGHLIGHTS:* Physical treatment on the biocomposite increases the surface roughness.* Single bond COOH network on the treated biocomposite promotes the particle deposition.* The network reduces the particles repulsion during the deposition process. # Bio-composite(バイオコンポジット)is a composite material formed by a matrix (resin) and a reinforcement of natural…

What happens when we spray water-soluble “air pollution” particles to plants for 2 years? 水溶性 「大気汚染」 粒子を植物に2年間散布したらどうなるでしょう?

JOURNAL: Atmospheric Environment (2014) https://doi.org/10.1016/j.atmosenv.2014.01.023 Effects of 2-years exposure to (sub-micron) ammonium sulfate particles on growth and gas exchange rates of Fagus crenata (ブナ), Castanopsis sieboldii (スダジイ), Larix kaempferi (唐松) and Cryptomeria japonica (スギ) seedlings •No significant effect of the particles on growth was observed after 2 years.•Net photosynthetic rates of 3 species were not significantly changed.•Net photosynthesis…

Particulate matter strongly adsorbed onto leaf surfaces is not washed away by rainfall and contributes to the EC (Elemental Carbon) flux. Leaf-surface particles must be included when evaluating the dry and total fluxes of particulate matter, in particular for water-insoluble constituents such as EC. 葉面に強く「付着」した粒子状物質は降雨によって洗い流されず、EC(元素炭素)フラックスに寄与する。粒子状物質、特にECのような水不溶性成分の乾燥流束および全流束を評価する場合には、葉表面粒子を含めなければならない。
