Highly interconnected ordered mesoporous carbon-carbon nanotube nanocomposites: Pt-free, highly efficient, and durable counter electrodes for dye-sensitized solar cells

We report the preparation of nanocomposites of OMC and CNTs and their successful application as novel, Pt-free, highly efficient and durable DSSC CEs. OMC?CNT nanocomposites have a unique structure wherein the primary particles of the OMC are interconnected via the CNTs, thus exhibiting a medusa-like morphology. Importantly, the OMC?CNT nanocomposites combine the advantageous properties of

Caffeine “Traffic Light”: Do you want to know how much caffeine is in your drink?

A team of researchers led by Prof. Young-Tae Chang from National University of Singapore and Prof. Yoon-Kyoung Cho from Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology (UNIST), Korea, developed a fluorescent caffeine detector and a detection kit that lights up like a traffic light when caffeine is present in various drinks and solutions. The research

Adipose-Derived “Endotrophin” May Hold Key to Obesity and Cancer Cure

Research Paper Published in Nature Communications(Prof. Jiyoung Park) The paper titled “Endotrophin triggers adipose tissue fibrosis and metabolic dysfunction” was published in Nature Communications on 19th, March, 2014. This paper revealed that adipose-derived endotrophin, which is a cleaved peptide from typeVI collagen alpha3 chain, triggers fibrosis, inflammation and insulin resistance in adipose tissues upon diet-induced
