The paper discusses the impact of the aqueous electrolytes on the electrochemical capacitor capacitance using two activated carbons (CA and Norit GSX) and carbon nanotubes. The activated carbon CA (2300 m2/g) showed best electrochemical performance in 1M Na 2SO3 , despite the considerably lower conductivity of the electrolyte in comparison...

Molecular techniques are very popular in microbial laboratories. Among them FISH- fluorescent in situ hybridization (with modifications like: CARD-FISH, MAR-FISH, RING-FISH, CloneFISH), DGGE – denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis based on 16S rRNA molecular marker and flow cytometry, are the most popular. These analytical methods are commonly use...

Poly(methacrylic acid-co-methyl methacrylate) (P(MAA-coMMA))/poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP)/multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) nanocomposites were prepared via ultrasonic assisted emulsifier solution free radical polymerization technique. It was found that, at low concentration of MWNTs, it could uniformly disperse into P(MAA-co-MMA)/PVP blends and provide P(MAA-coMMA)/PVP/MWNTs nanocomposites much improved mechanical properties. Thermal stability for...
