Microfluidic-based Synthesis of Covalent Organic Frameworks (COFs): A Tool for Continuous Production of COF Fibers and Direct Printing on a Surface Afshin Abrishamkar1, David Rodríguez-San-Miguel2, Jorge Andrés Rodríguez Navarro3, Romen Rodriguez-Trujillo4, David B. Amabilino5, Ruben Mas-Ballesté2, Félix Zamora2,6,7, Andrew J. deMello1, Josep Puigmarti-Luis1 1Institute of Chemical and Bioengineering, Department of Chemistry and Applied Bioscience, ETH Zurich, 2Departamento de Química Inorgánica, Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, 3Departamento de Química Inorgánica, Universidad de Granada, 4Institut de Ciència de Materials de Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), 5School of Chemistry, University of Nottingham, 6Condensed Matter Physics Center (IFMAC), Universidad Autónoma de Madrid, 7Instituto Madrileño de Estudios Avanzados en Nanociencia (IMDEA Nanociencia) We present a novel microfluidic-based method for synthesis of covalent organic frameworks (COFs). We demonstrate how this approach can be used to produce continuous COF fibers, and also 2D or 3D COF structures on surfaces.
Best Current Practice for Obtaining High Quality EEG Data During Simultaneous fMRI Karen J. Mullinger1, Pierluigi Castellone2, Richard Bowtell1 1Sir Peter Mansfield Magnetic Resonance Centre, School of Physics and Astronomy, University of Nottingham, 2Brain Products GmbH Simultaneous electroencephalography (EEG) and functional Magnetic Resonance imaging (fMRI) is a powerful neuroimaging tool. However, the inside of an MRI scanner forms a difficult environment for EEG data recording and safety must be considered whenever operating EEG equipment inside a scanner. Here, we present an optimised EEG-fMRI data acquisition protocol.
Polymer Microarrays for High Throughput Discovery of Biomaterials Andrew L. Hook1, Chien-Yi Chang2, Jing Yang1, David J. Scurr1, Robert Langer3, Daniel G. Anderson3, Steve Atkinson2, Paul Williams2, Martyn C. Davies1, Morgan R. Alexander1 1Laboratory of Biophysics and Surface Analysis, University of Nottingham, 2School of Molecular Medical Sciences, University of Nottingham, 3David H. Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, Massachusetts Institute of Technology A description of the formation of a polymer microarray using an on-chip photopolymerization technique. The high throughput surface characterization using atomic force microscopy, water contact angle measurements, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry and a cell attachment assay is also described.
