High-density live cell array serves as a valuable tool for the development of high-throughput immunophenotyping systems and cell-based biosensors. In this paper, we have, for the first time, demonstrated a simple fabrication process to form the hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) and poly(ethylene...

A series of poly(gamma-chloropropyl-L-glutamate) (PCPLG) with controlled polymer molecular weight (MW = 5-28 kg x mol(-1)) and molecular weight distribution (PDI = 1.16-1.26) have been prepared from hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS)-mediated ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of gamma-chloropropyl-L-glutamic acid based N-carboxylanhydride (CP-NCA).

Trimethylsilylation of cellulose in different 1,3-dialkylimidazolium ionic liquids (IL) with hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) as a silylating agent was investigated. Trimethylsilyl (TMSi) cellulose with a degree of substitution (DS) greater than 1 is insoluble in the IL. The maximum DS obtained depends...

Full details of an anti-selective catalytic asymmetric nitroaldol reaction promoted by a heterobimetallic catalyst comprised of Nd(5)O(O(i)Pr)(13), an amide-based ligand, and NaHMDS (sodium hexamethyldisilazide) are described. A systematic synthesis and evaluation of amide-based ligands led to the identification of optimum...

Common dehydration methods of cells on biomaterials for scanning electron microscopy (SEM) include air drying, hexamethyldisilazane (HMDS) or tetramethysilane (TMS) treatment and critical point drying (CPD). On the other side, freeze-drying has been widely employed in dehydrating biological samples and...
