【医療機器】数μmのエアロゾル液滴が親水性表面にどのように沈着するのか?Micrometer-sized droplet aerosols on to a hydrophilic surface.

大気に浮遊する微粒子の沈着の場所について考えてみた。”Wet”微粒子は「親水性の高い」場所に多く沈着する。”Dry”微粒子”は「親水性の低い」場所に多く沈着する。Considered the location of the deposition of particles suspended in the air. The results: “More hydrophilic” area trapped more “wet” particles. The “less hydrophilic” area trapped more “dry” particles.

開発の事例:微粒子の合成と構造化 Example of Technology: Synthesis & Structuring of Particles (2018-2019)

浮遊する微粒子の構造化と集積化について、従来まで考証されていなかった物質の輸送に対する「駆動力のバランス」の視点からの技術手法を開発した。We have developed methods for synthesis & structuring suspended particles from the viewpoint of “balance of the driving force on the transport of matter”, which has not been considered before.

【医療機器】40℃の表面に気中微粒子を沈着させた流体制御 Can aerosol particles move/deposit, from 25 to 40 ℃ surface?

閉鎖空間における沈着を考慮したエアロゾルフローシステムを構築した。沈着効率が悪い従来法に代わって本手法を気液界面細胞曝露に応用できれば有用である。An aerosol flow system has been constructed to mimic the delivery of particles to the air-liquid interface. Potentially be applied for the deposition and analysis of submicron particles on various types of substrate without the need for vacuum imaging analysis..

【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?

Short Introductions of other papers: /paper/ Komatsuna plants were grown and exposed to ammonium sulfate (((NH4)2SO4), AS) submicron particles for 16 days (22.5 µg m−3 per day) in phytotrons. The amount of particles deposited on the leaf  decreased over time, because AS particles deposited on the leaf deliquesced, allowing ions such as SO42− in the…

【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】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。
