H2S is one of the most common toxic contaminants frequently utilized in various fields, including the oil, gas, waste treatment, and paper industries. Even trace amounts of H2S gas are extremely toxic to many organisms, such as human respiratory and nerve systems. Generally, it is recommended that the acceptable ambient levels of H2S for a healthy condition are in the range of 20 -100 ppb.
Materials exhibiting abrupt transition between low and high thermal conductance states are strongly desired for rapidly developing thermal regulation applications.
A binary nanoparticle array refers to a periodic structure comprising at least two types of building nanoparticles with component or morphological dissimilarities. Synthetic binary arrays can boost not only structural diversity but also new optical, magnetic, or thermoelectronic properties synergized from different components.
As an archetypical correlated oxide which possesses rich metal-insulator transitions, V2O3 has been extensively studied. The paramagnetic metallic (PM) phase can evolve into a paramagnetic insulating (PI) phase or an antiferromagnetic insulating (AFI) phase depending on chemical doping, temperature, and pressure.
2,5-Furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) has received increasing attention as a near-market platform chemical that can potentially replace terephthalic acid in the production of commercial and high-performance polymers.
