I investigated cellular mechanisms of ion and acid-base transport in rainbow trout (Oncorhyncus mykiss), crabs (Neohelice granulata), zebrafish (Danio rerio), Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii), and mosquito larvae (Aedes aegypti) with a primary focus on discerning the mechanisms governing ion...
Conductive Atomic Force Microscopy Study of Electron Transport Through Diazonium Derived Films and Mixed – Mode Bonded Layers on Gold and Carbon SurfacesDownload
For Molecular Electronics to become a viable replacement or complitment to current elec- tronic devices a fundamental understanding of device operation and functionality is needed. This work explores electron transport through diazonium derived molecular junctions via conductive atomic force...
An experimental set up based on a diffusion bridge is developed to accurately determine the in-plane and through-plane permeability, Knudsen diffusivity and effective molecular diffusivity of gas diffusion layers used in PEFC. The parameters are estimated under various compression levels in...
Arsenic is a proven human carcinogen and associated with a myriad of other adverse health effects. This metalloid is methylated in human liver to monomethylarsonic acid (MMAV), monomethylarsonous acid (MMAIII), dimethylarsinic acid (DMAV), and dimethylarsinous acid (DMAIII) and eliminated...
Synthetic polymers are still widely used in today’s life despite all environmental issues attributed to them. Replacing synthetic polymers with natural biodegradable polymers has been considered as a way of reducing these environmental impacts partially, if not completely. Hydroxyporpyl xylan...
Loading vitrifiable concentrations of cryoprotective agents is an important step for cryopreservation of biological tissues by vitrification for research and transplantation purposes. This may be done by immersing the tissue in a cryoprotective agent (CPA) solution, and increasing the...
The Dual Failure Restorability (DFR) problems involve the design of network topology to be restorable in the event of single and dual failures scenarios. We developed new integer linear programming (ILP) models to optimally design mesh topology networks with various survivability schemes; span...
Advancements in the field of electronics might be achieved by future molecular scale devices. Hybrid organic-silicon structures have the potential to overcome many challenges facing the use of molecules as devices while maintaining the ability to interface with traditional silicon technology. The...
This study experimentally evaluated wheat straw slurry pipelines. Tests were conducted to determine the particle properties of the biomass mixed in water over time. The saturated particle density of 1,060kg/m3 was reached after 24 hours, while the saturated moisture contents of 78.5% and 79.5%...
Respiration, Acid/Base, Ammonia and Ionoregulatory Strategies in the Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus stoutii)Download
Hagfish feed on putrefied carrion, which poses several environmental challenges to the scavenger including hypoxia (Low PO2), hypercapnia (high PCO2) and high environmental ammonia (HEA). To any other organism, these conditions would be physiologically challenging; however, hagfish seem to have...
