Intelligent regulation of fluid mechanical properties is an enormous challenge. Here we report a photocontrolled thermogelling system that features switchable sol-gel transition in response to light. Such a system is composed of amphiphilic copolymer appending with charged long alkyl stickers and α-cyclodextrin (α-CD) host units. Temperature can induce the reversible threading/dethreading between the α-CD and the alkyl chain, leading to a sol-gel transition.
The primary challenge in material design and fabrication is achieving excellent performance, economical substances, fast and convenient synthesis for real world applications. We tackle this challenge by an ultra-fast synthesis of core-shell 13X@NaA zeolite composites within only 30 min. By using the plasma treatment, more silanol groups on the surface of 13X powders and hydroxyl radicals in NaA precursor gel result in the accelerated formation of NaA crystal shell.
The transport properties of gases in mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) are important in materials design. Here, we developed a novel time-dependent density functional theory (TDDFT) method to study the transport properties of gases in MMMs. The MMM is modeled by inserting a spherical filler into the continuous polymer phase, which is similar to the Maxwell model; additionally, the inhomogeneity of the filler and the molecular correlations were taken into account in the TDDFT method.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
