Oxygen Diffusion into Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Doped Polystrene Latex Films Using Fluorescence Technique
(Springer/Plenum Publishers, 2013)
This study examines the oxygen diffusion into polystyrene (PS) latex/multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) nanocomposite films (PS/MWNT) consisting of various amounts of MWNT via steady state fluorescence technique (SSF). ...
CAMPways: constrained alignment framework for the comparative analysis of a pair of metabolic pathways
(Oxford University Press, 2013)
Motivation: Given a pair of metabolic pathways an alignment of the pathways corresponds to a mapping between similar substructures of the pair. Successful alignments may provide useful applications in phylogenetic tree ...
Computational Analysis of a Zn-Bound Tris(imidazolyl) Calixarene Aqua Complex: Toward Incorporating Second-Coordination Sphere Effects into Carbonic Anhydrase Biomimetics
(Amer Chemical Soc, 2013)
Molecular dynamics simulations and quantum-mechanical calculations were performed to characterize a supra-molecular tris(imidazolyl) calixarene Zn2+ aqua complex as a biomimetic model for the catalyzed hydration of ...
In silico identification of novel and selective monoamine oxidase B inhibitors
(SPRINGER WIEN, 2013)
Monoamine oxidases (MAO) A and B are flavin adenine dinucleotides containing enzymes bound to the mitochondrial outer membranes of the cells of the brain liver intestine and placenta as well as platelets. Recently selective ...
Crossover from Vibrational to Rotational Collectivity in Heavy Nuclei in the Shell-Model Monte Carlo Approach
(Amer Physical Soc., 2013)
Heavy nuclei exhibit a crossover from vibrational to rotational collectivity as the number of neutrons or protons increases from shell closure towards midshell but the microscopic description of this crossover has been a ...
Insights into the binding mode of new N-substituted pyrazoline derivatives to MAO-A: docking and quantum chemical calculations
(SPRINGER WIEN, 2013)
The binding modes of four N-substituted pyrazoline derivatives as novel MAO-A inhibitory agents were investigated using docking and quantum chemical molecular modelling tools.
Electricity market equilibrium models with dynamic demand functions
Many electricity market models have either mostly ignored the demand response to changing prices (e.g. day-ahead models with mostly fixed demand) or at the other extreme they assumed that the full demand response occurred ...
Max-pivot routing for opportunistic networks
Opportunistic networks are challenging types of networks where network connections are imminent. Network topologies are dynamic and can rapidly change. A path between a source node and a destination node may or may not ...
Flow and Turbulence Structure Around an In-Stream Rectangular Cylinder with Scour Hole
(TSINGHUA UNIV, 2013)
An eddy resolving technique is used to reveal the unsteady dynamics of the coherent structures present in the flow field around an in-stream vertical cylinder with a scour hole at a channel Reynolds number of 240000. Such ...
Exploiting heterogeneous parallelism with the Heterogeneous Programming Library
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2013)
While recognition of the advantages of heterogeneous computing is steadily growing the issues of programmability and portability hinder its exploitation. The introduction of the OpenCL standard was a major step forward in ...
