【材料合成技術】同一ロウソクから親水性と疎水性の両方の粒子層が製造可能 From a single candle: we can make both hydrophilic & hydrophobic layers.

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?

【環境技術、材料合成】ココナツ殻由来素材の表面に微粒子を集積 Fine particles on bio-composite surface.

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…

【環境技術】薄板の裏側まで微粒子が沈着?Are the particles deposited to the back of a sheet?

Simultaneous deposition of submicron aerosols onto both surfaces of a plate substrate by electrostatic forces We demonstrate one-step deposition of submicrometer-sized particles suspended in the gas-phase onto a plate type substrate using an electrostatic-assisted spray system. The particles were deposited on plate-type metallic surfaces, on both front and rear sides of the substrate. This “both-side”…

【植物と微粒子】2年間、水溶性微粒子を植物に与えたら?Effect of water-soluble particles on growth of plants (2 years)

JOURNAL: Atmospheric Environment (2014)http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1352231014000405 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 of…

【植物と微粒子】森林へのエアロゾル沈着過程を解明. Deposition process of particles into forests

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。

【環境計測技術】煙突の模擬~ガスから微粒子への転換を計測した : Measuring particles from mixed gases

These results may be informative for predicting phenomena related to gas-to-particle conversion at the exit of stationary emission sources.火力発電所等の燃焼過程から生成すると考えられる混合排気ガスを実験室内で模擬した。This paper was awarded 2013 Takahashi Award from Japan Association Aerosol of Science and Technology. エアロゾル学会の2013年のTakahashi賞を受賞。
