Construction and characterization of superhydrophobic wood coatings using one-step technique

Description: Article describes how this study was aiming at enhancing the stain resistance and durability of varnish on wood surfaces, a super hydrophobic solution was created by blending the synthetic ZIF-8/paraffin with Hexadecyltrimethoxysilane at a specified mass ratio. This superhydrophobic mixture was then directly applied onto the wood varnish coating using a one-step method.

Dry blood spot samples to monitor immune-associated mRNA expression in intervention studies: Impact of Baker's yeast beta glucan

Description: Article describes how monitoring immunological response to physical stressors in a field setting is challenging because existing methods require a laboratory visit and traditional blood collection via venipuncture. The purpose of this study was to determine if our optimized dry blood spot (DBS) methodology yields sufficient total RNA to quantify the effect of Baker's Yeast Beta Glucan supplementation on post-exercise mRNA expression.

Highly Pseudocapacitive Storage Design Principles of Heteroatom-Doped Graphene anode in Calcium-Ion Batteries

Description: Article describes how pseudocapacitive storage of multivalent ions, especially Ca2+, in heteroatom-doped carbon nanomaterials is promising to achieve both high energy and power densities, but there is the lack of pseudocapacitive theories that enable rational design of the materials for calcium-ion batteries.

NextGen-Malloc: Giving Memory Allocator Its Own Room in the House

Description: Article describes how memory allocation and management have a significant impact on performance and energy of modern applications. The authors observe that performance can vary by as much as 72% in some applications based on which memory allocator is used, and in this paper, the authors make a case for offloading memory allocation (and other similar management functions) from main processing cores to other processing units to boost performance, reduce energy consumption, and customize services … more

Automated Approach to In Vitro Image-Guided Photothermal Therapy with Top-Down and Bottom-Up-Synthesized Graphene Quantum Dots

Description: Article discusses how, based on recent studies, graphene quantum dots (GQDs) are expected to possess advantageous photothermal properties and facilitate fluorescence image-tracking in the visible and near-infrared (NIR), while surpassing other graphene-based materials in their biocompatibility. The combination of the photothermal and imaging modalities tested in vitro makes the GQDs developed in this work prospective agents for cancer theragnostics.
