Application

Hexadecane may be used as a solvent for trioctylamine-based synthesis of indium antimonide (InSb) nanocrystals. It may also be used as an internal standard for the synthesis of poly(9,9-
dioctylfluorene)-b-poly(3-hexylthiophene) via Grignard metathesis chain growth polymerization.

Emulsification in microdevices (microfluidic emulsification) involves micrometer-sized droplets and fast interface expansion rates. In addition, droplets are formed in less than milliseconds, and therefore traditional tensiometric techniques cannot be used to quantify the actual interfacial tension. In this paper, monodisperse

CRISPR-based nucleic-acid detection is an emerging technology for molecular diagnostics. However, these methods generally require several hours and could cause amplification errors, due to the pre-amplification of target nucleic acids to enhance the detection sensitivity. Here, we developed a platform
