Optical characterization of surface adlayers and their compositional demixing at the nanoscale

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5897338
PMID: 29650981
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03820-w

[…] g this unique spectral information to the next level, we examined adlayers from a solvent mixture, and revealed that for the miscible TCE-chloroform system, in adlayers the two solvents spontaneously demix into nanodroplets of varying compositions. Notably, the composition correlated strongly with droplet size and location, thus pointing to rich interactions between different factors in determinin […]


Lignocellulose Liquefaction to Biocrude: A Tutorial Review

PMCID: 5900959
PMID: 29364569
DOI: 10.1002/cssc.201702362

[…] recovery of the solvent from the biocrude. Solvents that show a large Hansen distance from cellulose, being either very polar (such as water) or very apolar (such as alkanes), appear to spontaneously demix from the biocrude at room temperature. They thereby allow a cheap and easy recovery of the solvent, which has formed the basis of a novel biocrude fractionation approach that will be discussed l […]


Swelling Inhibition of Liquid Crystalline Colloidal Montmorillonite and Beidellite Clays by DNA

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5847546
PMID: 29531235
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-22386-7

[…] heets. In spite of the DNA and clay nanosheets being both negatively charged, we found that the DNA adsorbs to some extent on the clay sheets. We also found that the 2-component suspensions generally demix into a clay-poor isotropic phase and a clay-rich nematic phase, which corresponds to a large widening of the I/N biphasic region. We argue that this is due to the appearance of attractive, DNA-m […]


FISSA: A neuropil decontamination toolbox for calcium imaging signals

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5823956
PMID: 29472547
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21640-2

[…] a mixture of signals originating from this ROI as well as from a surrounding volume (Fig. ). This volume includes mostly neurites (axons and dendrites) of other cells, and sometimes other somata. To demix these signals, we use the fact that the signals (photon counts) are always positive, and assume that the mixing of the different signals is linear and additive. A method of choice for demixing s […]


Phosphorylation of the FUS low‐complexity domain disrupts phase separation, aggregation, and toxicity

PMCID: 5641905
PMID: 28790177
DOI: 10.15252/embj.201696394

[…] Bassell, ; Thomas et al, ). Recent reports suggest these granules are membraneless organelles, partially or wholly stabilized by liquid–liquid phase separation (LLPS) where molecules self segregate (demix) to form two co‐existing liquids as observed for oil droplets in water (Courchaine et al, ). However, unlike oil–water emulsions, RNP granules formed by LLPS are not devoid of water and are thou […]


Multi scale approaches for high speed imaging and analysis of large neural populations

PLoS Comput Biol

DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005685

[…] y decimating the original imaging data as well as the neural shapes we had obtained by the CNMF approach, with a variety of decimation factors l. Then we used these decimated shapes Al to extract and demix the activities Cl from the corresponding downscaled data Yl. The reconstruction based on A1 and Cl fits the original data Y well, as measured by the RSS (, orange dashed line), whereas ‘single-p […]
