Popcorn-derived porous carbon flakes (PCFs) have been successfully fabricated from the biomass of maize. Utilizing the "puffing effect", the nubby maize grain turned into materials with interconnected honeycomb-like porous structure composed of carbon flakes. The following chemical activation method enabled the as-prepared products to possess optimized porous structure for electrochemical energy storage devices, such as multi-layer flake-like structures, ultrahigh specific surface area (SBET: 3301 m2 g-1), a high content of micropores (microporous surface area of 95%, especially the optimized sub-nanopores with the size of 0...

This work focuses on ionogel membranes for use in Li-ion batteries fabricated from syndiotactic polystyrene (sPS) gels filled with ionic liquids (ILs). The aim is to increase the operating temperature of Li-ion batteries. s. Thermal stability and safe operation of Li-ion batteries are two key attributes for their success in hybrid vehicles and other high temperature applications. The volatility of the liquid electrolytes in current lithium-ion battery technology causes thermal runaway leading to fire, explosion, and swelling of the cell...

With intrinsic safety and much higher energy densities than supercapacitors, rechargeable nickel/cobalt-zinc-based textile batteries are promising power sources for next generation personalized wearable electronics. However, high-performance wearable nickel/cobalt-zinc-based batteries are rarely reported because there is a lack of industrially weavable and knittable highly conductive yarns. Here, we use scalably produced highly conductive yarns uniformly covered with zinc (as anode) and nickel cobalt hydroxide nanosheets (as cathode) to fabricate rechargeable yarn batteries...

Probing electrodes at a nanometer scale is challenging but desirable to reveal the structural evolution of materials in electrochemical reactions. Herein, we present an atomic force microscopic method for an in situ analysis of a single Sn nanoparticle during sodiation and desodiation, which is conducted in an aprotic liquid electrolyte akin to a real electrochemical environment of the Na-ion cells. The morphological evolution of different-sized single Sn nanoparticle is visualized during the charge/discharge cycles by using a homemade planar electrode...

Oral electrolyte solutions are used widely for rehydration in diarrheal illness and to maintain hydration during vigorous exercise. In diarrheal illness, an oral rehydration solution (ORS) typically is preferred over intravenous fluids except for patients with severe dehydration. The preferred ORS is one similar to the glucose-containing reduced osmolarity World Health Organization ORS. There also are polymer-based solutions that use rice or wheat as the source of carbohydrates but these are not widely recommended...

In this article we demonstrate a simple approach to fabricate interdigitated in-plane electrodes for flexible micro-supercapacitors (MSCs). A nanosecond ultraviolet laser treatment is used to reduce and pattern the electrodes on thick graphite oxide (GO) freestanding films. These laser-treated regions obtained by direct writing provide the conducting channels for electrons in the capacitors. The electrochemical performance of the MSCs was evaluated in the presence of two different electrolytes and they exhibit characteristics of nearly electrical double layer capacitors...

Irinotecan, a chemotherapy drug, can cause acute diarrhea immediately after administration. Hence, the present study was designed to investigate the gastrointestinal (GI) disturbances after an intraperitoneal (IP) administration of irinotecan in rats.Twenty Wistar rats were separated into two groups of ten. Group A was considered as a control group (NaCl, 0.9%). Group B was treated with irinotecan at a single dose of 200mgkg(-1). The rats were observed for defecation. For the enteropooling test, the animals were sacrificed by decapitation 1h post-treatment...

Here X-ray reflectivity has been used to determine the structure of liquid crystal monolayers for different cyanobiphenyl homologues supported on aqueous solutions of two different salt species. Sodium iodide induces homeotropic ordering for all of the monolayer forming liquid crystal homologues studied here, and forms a Stern layer of iodide ions at the liquid crystal cyano headgroup, similar to the case of lipids or surfactants supported on electrolyte solutions. The liquid crystal headgroups were also found to penetrate into the water surface when binding with iodide ions...

Carbon-based supercapacitors have attracted extensive attention as the complement to batteries owing to its durable lifespan and superiority in high-power-demand field. However, their widespread use is limited by the low energy storage density; thus, a high-surface-area porous carbon is urgently needed. Herein, a highly porous carbon with a Brunauer-Emmett-Teller specific surface area up to 3643 m<sup>2</sup> g<sup>-1</sup> has been synthesized by chemical activation of resourceful papayas for the first time...

Electrostatic interactions are characteristic for ionic liquids, they play a pivotal role in determining the formation of species when solutes are dissolved in them. The formation of new species/complexes has been investigated for certain ILs. However, such investigations have not yet been focused on eutectic liquids, which get emerging interest as a promising class of ILs. These liquids (or Liquid Coordination Complexes, LCCs) are rather new and are composed of cationic and anionic chloro complexes of metals...

The performance of nanostructured semiconductors is frequently limited by interface defects that trap electronic carriers. However, high aspect ratio geometries dramatically increase the difficulty of using typical solid-state electrical measurements (multifrequency capacitance- and conductance-voltage testing) to quantify interface trap densities (D<sub>it</sub>). We report on electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) with liquid electrolytes providing conformal electrical contact to characterize the energy distribution of interface traps at metal oxide/semiconductor interfaces...

The unique motion of amoeba with a deformable body has long been an intriguing issue in scientific fields ranging from physics, bionics to mechanics. So far, most of the currently available artificial machines are still hard to achieve the complicated amoeba-like behaviors including stretching pseudopodia. Here through introducing a multi-materials system, we discovered a group of very unusual biomimetic amoeba-like behaviors of self-fueled liquid gallium alloy on the graphite surface immersed in alkaline solution...

We presented the colorimetric and electrochemical methods for determination of the dipeptidyl peptidase-IV (DPP-IV) activity and screening of its inhibitor using gold nanoparticle (AuNP) as the probe. In the colorimetric assay, the substrate peptide with a sequence of Arg-Pro-Arg induced the aggregation and color change of AuNPs, whereas cleavage of the peptide by DPP-IV prevented the aggregation of AuNPs. Furthermore, the aggregation of AuNPs in the solution was easily initiated on a solid/liquid (electrode/electrolyte) surface, which induced a decrease in the electron-transfer resistance...

This contribution reports the synthesis, characterization and capillary electrophoretic application of heptakis-(6-O-sulfobutyl-ether)-β-cyclodextrin sodium salt, (6-(SB)7-β-CD). The compound was obtained through a five-steps synthesis and it represents the first example of single-isomer sulfobutylated cyclodextrin that carries the negatively charged functions exclusively on its primary side and it is unmodified on the lower rim. The purity of each intermediate was determined by appropriate liquid chromatographic methods, while the isomeric purity of the final product was established by an ad-hoc developed HPLC method based on a CD-Screen-IEC column...
