Self-assembled monolayers to create novel surfaces utilising peptides identified by phage display for in vitro study of cancer stem cells
Systematic analyses of global cancer rates suggest the annual number of head and neck cancer (HNC) cases is approaching 1 million and in England 5-year survival rates are remain around 50%. This is due to metastasis and ...
Carbon Hybrids Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Reduction Reaction in Fuel Cells
The oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) is a key reaction in fuel cells and metal-air batteries. This process involves multi-electron transfer and is kinetically sluggish due to the high-energy barriers required to break the ...
Effect of Polar Structure on Photocatalytic Properties of Oxide Powders and Films
Semiconductor photocatalysis has gained increasing research interests in the application of solar fuel production and wastewater treatment. A key challenge for these applications is to reduce the photogenerated charge ...
Platinum-free electrocatalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction in fuel cells
While climate change remains a persistent threat, long lasting alternatives must be developed to avoid greenhouse gas emissions. One solution could be the shift to a hydrogen based energy economy, where hydrogen could be ...
Current Assisted Sintering of Thermoelectric Materials
The performance of thermoelectric materials (ZT), their capability of converting a temperature gradient into electricity, is dependent not only on their composition but also how they were processed (pressure-less, hot ...
