Exploring NIR Aza-BODIPY-Based Polarity Sensitive Probes with ON-and-OFF Fluorescence Switching in Pluronic Nanoparticles (open access)

Exploring NIR Aza-BODIPY-Based Polarity Sensitive Probes with ON-and-OFF Fluorescence Switching in Pluronic Nanoparticles

The articles is about a study of the response of six NIR aza-BODIPY-based and structurally similar fluorophores to polarity and viscosity for incorporation inside Pluronic nanoparticles as switchable fluorescent probes (SFPs). Based on their results, all of these fluorophores were moderately to strongly sensitive to the polarity of the microenvironment. They concluded that attaching amine groups to the fluorophore is not necessary for having strong polarity sensitive probes.

UV and infrared absorption spectra and 248 nm photolysis of maleic anhydride (C₄H₂O₃) (open access)

UV and infrared absorption spectra and 248 nm photolysis of maleic anhydride (C₄H₂O₃)

This article investigates maleic anhydride (C₂H₂(CO)₂O, Furan-2,5-dione) that is emitted into or formed in the atmosphere during bio-mass burning events as well as being a photochemical degradation product of some aromatic volatile organic compounds. The photochemical fate of maleic anhydride, however, is presently not well enough characterized to enable modeling of its impact on the environment and human health. In this study, the room temperature UV and infrared absorption spectra of maleic anhydride were measured and quantified using several complementary calibration methods.

Analysis of the Fe 2p XPS for hematite 𝛂 Fe2O3: Consequences of covalent bonding and orbital splittings on multiplet splittings (open access)

Analysis of the Fe 2p XPS for hematite 𝛂 Fe2O3: Consequences of covalent bonding and orbital splittings on multiplet splittings

Article analyzes the origins of the complex Fe 2p X-Ray Photoelectron Spectra (XPS) of hematite (α-Fe₂O₃) and is related to the character of the bonding in this compound. This analysis provides a new and novel view of the reasons for XPS binding energies (BEs) and BE shifts, which deepens the current understanding and interpretation of the physical and chemical significance of the XPS.

Long-range nonspreading propagation of sound beam through periodic layered structure (open access)

Long-range nonspreading propagation of sound beam through periodic layered structure

Article analyzing dispersion of sound in a solid-fluid layered structure and found a flex point on the isofrequency curve where D vanishes for given direction of propagation and frequency. Nonspreading propagation is experimentally observed in a water steel lattice of 75 periods (~1 meter long) and occurs in the regime of anomalous dispersion and strong acoustic anisotropy when the effective mass along periodicity is close to zero. Under these conditions the incoming beam experiences negative refraction of phase velocity leading to backward wave propagation. The observed effect is explained using a complete set of dynamical equations and our effective medium theory.

Effect of increased embryonic temperature during developmental windows on survival, morphology and oxygen consumption of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

This article applies a developmental 3-dimensional critical window experimental design for a vertebrate, using time, temperature, and phenotypic response (i.e., variables measured). To assess thermal effects on fish development, the authors examined trout hatchling phenotypes following rearing in constant temperatures (5, 10, 15 and 17.5 °C) and following exposure to increased temperature above 5 °C during specific developmental windows.

A cytoskeletal function for PBRM1 reading methylated microtubules (open access)

A cytoskeletal function for PBRM1 reading methylated microtubules

This article shows that that the coordinated read-write activity of the epigenetic machinery extends to the cytoskeleton, with PBRM1 in the PBAF chromatin remodeling complex reading microtubule methyl marks written by the SETD2 histone methyltransferase. This article opens a previously unknown window into how chromatin remodeler defects can drive disease via both epigenetic and cytoskeletal dysfunction.
