Science and Research
Ethanol is a biofuel used worldwide. However, the presence of excessive water either during the distillation process or by fraudulent adulteration is a major concern in the use of ethanol fuel (…)
Researchers from LMF/LNNano and IQ/Unicamp introduced a simple protocol to manufacture disposable, 3D-printed microfluidic systems for sample preparation of petroleum
Researchers from LMN/LNNano and IQ/UNICAMP have studied how to control the carbon content and the number of graphitic carbon nanodomains in mesoporous silica supports using a controlled organofunctionalization and pyrolysis procedure
Capillary-based microfluidic interface enables multidimensional gas phase separations of complex organic mixtures
LMF introduced a modulation strategy for comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography by using a simple and consumable-free modulator. Proposed prototype by using an in-oven TDM modulator was successfully applied to a series of challenging samples.
Characterization and modeling of nanostructured multilayer NbN/CrN coatings for new generation wear resistant automotive components
Elemental maps obtained by EELS in Spectrum mode obtained from niobium rich and chromium rich layers and stress along a 7.5 nm periodicity coating, in the X direction
LMF addresses PDMS microdevices with burst pressures of up to 4.5 MPa. This value is more than tenfold the pressures withstood by the chips described in literature. In terms of the reversible behavior, it is crucial in research and development stages
LMF’s researcher creates a method for integrating solid electrodes into microfluidic chips that allows the reproducible renewal of passivated electroactive surfaces without any treatment, neither physical nor chemical. These electrodes are the closest analogue to the mercury drop electrode
LMF addresses for the first time the development of a totally integrated electrochemical point-of-use platform with homemade potentiostat and smartphone for real-time processing multivariate data
LNNano’s researchers outline the use of a smartphone for colorimetric determination of proteins in real samples of human blood plasma. Such platform remarkably streamlined the Bradford test
LMF addresses the second literature’s reporting on the formation of high flow rate-assisted turbulence into microfluidic channels (flow rates of up to 60 mL min-1). The platform generated high throughput liquid-liquid extractions, with residence time of only 0.01 s.
