Reducing marble-SO2 reaction rate by the application of certain surfactants
(Kluwer Academic Publishers, 2003-01)
Sulfur dioxide (SO2), prevalent in the modern urban environment of industrial countries, attacks calcite (CaCO3) in marble. As a result, a gypsum (CaSO4.2H2O) crust is produced at rain-sheltered surfaces while areas exposed ...
RAFT polymerization mediated bioconjugation strategies
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2011-07)
This review aims to highlight the use of RAFT polymerization in the synthesis of polymer bioconjugates. It covers two main bioconjugation strategies using the RAFT process: (i) post-polymerization bioconjugations using ...
Dynamic shared spectrum allocation for underlaying device-to-device communications
This article provides an overview on spectrum sharing in D2D underlaying communications for 5G and beyond 5G applications. Various spectrum sharing algorithms are summarized within a framework of underlaying D2D communications ...
Computing optical properties of ultra-thin crystals
An overview is given of recent advances in experimental and theoretical understanding of optical properties of ultra-thin crystal structures (graphene, phosphorene, silicene, MoS2 , MoSe2 , WS2 , WSe2 , h-AlN, h-BN, ...

(American Institute of Physics Publishing, 2016-12)
Atomically thin nanoribbons (NRs) have been at the forefront of materials science and nanoelectronics in recent years. State-of-the-art research on nanoscale materials has revealed that electronic, magnetic, phononic, and ...
Perspectives for solid biopolymer electrolytes in dye sensitized solar cell and battery application
Photovoltaic technologies represent one of the leading research areas of solar energy which is one of the most powerful renewable alternatives of fossil fuels. In a common photovoltaic application the batteries play a key ...
Federated query processing on linked data: A qualitative survey and open challenges
(Cambridge University Press, 2015-08)
A large number of data providers publish and connect their structured data on the Web as linked data. Thus, the Web of data becomes a global data space. In this paper, we initially give an overview of query processing ...
The importance of protein profiling in the diagnosis and treatment of hematologic malignancies
(Galenos Publishing House, 2011)
Proteins are important targets in cancer research because malignancy is associated with defects in cell protein machinery. Protein profiling is an emerging independent subspecialty of proteomics that is rapidly expanding ...
Algorithms for the de novo sequencing of peptides from tandem mass spectra
(Taylor & Francis, 2011-10)
Proteomics is the study of proteins, their time- and location-dependent expression profiles, as well as their modifications and interactions. Mass spectrometry is useful to investigate many of the questions asked in ...
