Summary of "Two-Dimensional Growth of Large-Area Conjugated Polymers on Ice Surfaces: High Conductivity and Photoelectrochemical Applications."

Polymerizing monomers on atomically flat solid surface and air/water, solid/liquid or liquid/liquid interface is now a rapidly emerging frontier. Dimension-controlled synthesis of π-conjugated polymers is of particular interest, which can be achieved by precise control of monomer distribution during the polymerization. Ice surface allows rapid polymerization of monomers in the plane direction along air-water interface to yield large-area two-dimensional sheet-like poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene):poly(styrene sulfonate) (2D sheet-like
PSS) films with thickness of ca. 30 nm. The persuasive role of ice-chemistry is reflected in high degree of crystallinity and superior conductivity of resultant
PSS films. Excellent photoelectrochemical (PEC) features were further disclosed when the ice-templated
PSS films were coupled to quantum dots. Utilization of these polymer films in photovoltaic devices also resulted in excellent current density and power conversion efficiency. This work presents an innovative material technology that goes beyond traditional and ubiquitous inorganic 2D materials such as graphene and MoS2 for integrated electronic applications.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Encrustations, formed from microbes (bacteria, algae, fungi, plankton, or protozoa) embedding in extracellular polymers, that adhere to surfaces such as teeth (DENTAL DEPOSITS); PROSTHESES AND IMPLANTS; and catheters. Biofilms are prevented from forming by treating surfaces with DENTIFRICES; DISINFECTANTS; ANTI-INFECTIVE AGENTS; and antifouling agents.

The application of drug preparations to the surfaces of the body, especially the skin (ADMINISTRATION, CUTANEOUS) or mucous membranes. This method of treatment is used to avoid systemic side effects when high doses are required at a localized area or as an alternative systemic administration route, to avoid hepatic processing for example.

The third stomach of ruminants, situated on the right side of the abdomen at a higher level than the fourth stomach and between this latter and the second stomach, with both of which it communicates. From its inner surface project large numbers of leaves or folia, each of which possesses roughened surfaces. In the center of each folium is a band of muscle fibers which produces a rasping movement of the leaf when it contracts. One leaf rubs against those on either side of it, and large particles of food material are ground down between the rough surfaces, preparatory to further digestion in the succeeding parts of the alimentary canal.

Echocardiography amplified by the addition of depth to the conventional two-dimensional ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY visualizing only the length and width of the heart. Three-dimensional ultrasound imaging was first described in 1961 but its application to echocardiography did not take place until 1974. (Mayo Clin Proc 1993;68:221-40)
