A real-time system for monitoring oxidative potential of PM

Particulate matter (PM), a major component of outdoor and indoor air pollution was recently classified by World Health Organization as carcinogenic to humans. The underlying toxicological mechanisms by which particles induce adverse health effects are still not entirely known. Numerous toxicological studies have demonstrated that particles have the ability to generate free radicals and related reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are able to induce oxidative stress at the sites of deposition (i.e. lungs).A fluorescence-based profluorescent nitroxide (PFN) molecular probe synthesized …

Molecular Lego: building new materials piece-by-piece on surfaces

Single-atom thick materials represent the ultimate spatial limit for thin films.  At single-atom thickness, new physical properties can emerge along with new opportunities for reducing the size and operating power of devices made from these ultrathin materials.One of the main challenges in contemporary materials science lies in synthesising and characterising new single-atom thick materials.
