  • Investigation of metabolites for estimating blood deposition time 

    Lech, Karolina; Liu, Fan; Davies, Sarah K.; Ackermann, Katrin; Ang, Joo Ern; Middleton, Benita; Revell, Victoria L.; Raynaud, Florence J.; Hoveijn, Igor; Hut, Roelof A.; Skene, Debra J.; Kayser, Manfred (2017-08-05) - Journal article
    Trace deposition timing reflects a novel concept in forensic molecular biology involving the use of rhythmic biomarkers for estimating the time within a 24-h day/night cycle a human biological sample was left at the crime ...
  • Laccase redox potentials: pH dependence and mutants, a QM/MM study 

    Goetze, Jan Philipp; Buehl, Michael (2016-09-08) - Journal article
    We have studied the T. versicolor laccase T1 site redox potential (RP) at the M06/6-311++G**/SDD(Cu) level of theory, employing QM/MM optimised geometries (RI-BP86/def2-SVP/def2-TZVP(Cu):CHARMM) of the whole protein system ...
  • Nanoporous nanocrystalline monoclinic zirconia for luminescent oxygen sensors 

    Fidelus, Janusz; Zhou, Wuzong; Tenderenda, Tadeusz; Nasilowski, Tomasz (SPIE, 2015-09-28) - Conference item
    In this work we present a nanocrystalline monoclinic ZrO2 with large free volumen open towards the nanocrystals surface dedicated for optical oxygen sensors. Nanoporous zirconia nanopowder was fabricated in hydrothermal ...
  • NdBaScO4: aristotype of a new family of geometric ferroelectrics? 

    Cochrane, Amber; Telfer, Michael; Dixon, Charlotte Amy Louise; Halasyamani, P. Shiv; Zhang, Weiguo; Bousquet, Eric; Lightfoot, Philip (2016-09-21) - Journal article
    NdBaScO4 represents the aristotype structure of a new series of <110>-cut layered perovskites; it is suggested that compositional fine-tuning is likely to produce a family of new geometric ferroelectrics, driven primarily ...
  • Synthesis and electrochemical study of CoNi2S4 as a novel cathode material in a primary Li thermal battery 

    Giagloglou, Kyriakos; Payne, Julia L.; Crouch, Christina; Gover, Richard; Connor, Paul A.; Irvine, John T. S. (2017-07-25) - Journal article
    In this work CoNi2S4 was investigated as a candidate cathode material for Li thermal batteries. The CoNi2S4 was synthesized by a solid state reaction at 550◦C in a sealed quartz tube. Neutron powder diffraction was utilized ...
