General description

Chloroform, a halogenated hydrocarbon, is widely employed as a solvent. Its photochemical degradation has been investigated in the presence of TiO2 aqueous suspensions (wavelength range of 310-380nm).

Application

Chloroform has been employed for the ion exchange isolation of sulfatides from the urinary samples by using DEAE-cellulose membranes before the tandem mass spectrometric analysis. It has been used as a solvent for the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) deposition of lipid bilayers over mica sheets (silver coated back).†

Pentameric ligand-gated ion channels (pLGICs), such as nicotinic acetylcholine, glycine, γ-aminobutyric acid GABA(A/C) receptors, and the Gloeobacter violaceus ligand-gated ion channel (GLIC), are receptors that contain multiple allosteric binding sites for a variety of therapeutics, including general anesthetics. Here, we...

Solution-processed organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs) hold great promise to enable roll-to-roll printing of environmentally friendly, mechanically flexible and cost-effective photovoltaic devices. Nevertheless, many high-performing systems show best power conversion efficiencies (PCEs) with a thin active layer (thickness is ~100 nm) that...

Abdominal obesity and exaggerated postprandial lipemia are independent risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality, and both are affected by dietary behavior. We investigated whether dietary supplementation with whey protein and medium-chain saturated fatty acids (MC-SFAs) improved postprandial lipid...
