The BAILs catalyst exhibited better catalytic performance than conventional mineral acid catalysts (H2SO4 and HCl).
Chemical Synthesis of Porous Barium Titanate Thin Film and Thermal Stabilization of Ferroelectric Phase by Porosity-Induced Strain Norihiro Suzuki1,2, Minoru Osada3, Motasim Billah3,4, Yoshio Bando3,4, Yusuke Yamauchi5,6, Shahriar A. Hossain3,4 1Research Institute for Science and Technology (RIST), Tokyo University of Science (TUS), 2International Center for Young Scientists (ICYS), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), 3International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA), National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS), 4Australian Institute for Innovative Materials (AIIM), University of Wollongong, 5School of Chemical Engineering, Australian Institute for Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (AIBN), University of Queensland, 6Department of Plant & Environmental New Resources, Kyung Hee University Here, we present a protocol for the synthesis of porous barium titanate (BaTiO3) thin film by a surfactant-assisted sol-gel method, in which self-assembled amphipathic surfactant micelles are used as an organic template.
Design and Evaluation of Smart Glasses for Food Intake and Physical Activity Classification Jungman Chung1, Wonjoon Oh2, Dongyoub Baek3, Sunwoong Ryu2, Won Gu Lee4, Hyunwoo Bang2 1School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Seoul National University, 2Envisible, Inc., 3Curiosis, Inc., 4Department of Mechanical Engineering, Kyung Hee University This study presents a protocol of designing and manufacturing a glasses-type wearable device that detects the patterns of food intake and other featured physical activities using load cells inserted in both hinges of the glasses.
