  • Nagle, Lorraine C.; Rohan, James F. (Elsevier, 2011-08)
    Nanoporous gold (NPG) electrodes were fabricated in film and wire array formats by selectively dealloying Ag from Au0.18Ag0.82. Borohydride oxidation reaction (BOR) was studied by cyclic voltammetry at the NPG electrodes. ...
  • Nagle, Lorraine C.; Rohan, James F. (The Electrochemical Society, 2011-01)
    Nanoporous gold (NPG) electrodes were fabricated in film and wire array formats by selectively dealloying Ag from Au0.18Ag0.82. The ammonia borane (AB) oxidation reaction was studied by cyclic voltammetry at the NPG ...
  • O'Brien, Garret (University College Cork, 2006)
    The objective of this thesis is the exploration and characterisation of the nanoscale electronic properties of conjugated polymers and nanocrystals. In Chapter 2, the first application of conducting-probe atomic force ...
  • Varghese, Justin Manjaly (University College Cork, 2012-12)
    Nanostructured materials are central to the evolution of future electronics and information technologies. Ferroelectrics have already been established as a dominant branch in the electronics sector because of their diverse ...
  • Armstrong, Mark John (University College Cork, 2013)
    The Li-ion battery has for several years been at the forefront of powering an ever-increasing number of modem consumer electronic devices such as laptops, tablet PCs, cell phones, portable music players etc., while in more ...
  • Rohan, James F.; Hasan, Maksudul; Holubowitch, Nicolas E. (Elsevier, 2011-11-01)
    Nanotemplated materials have significant potential for applications in energy conversion and storage devices due to their unique physical properties. Nanostructured materials provide additional electrode surface area ...
  • Hasan, Maksudul; Chowdhury, Tamjid; Rohan, James F. (Electrochemical Society, 2010-06)
    A direct electrodeposition technique for Cu nanotube array fabrication and the subsequent conversion of the deposited Cu into Cu2O was developed. The Cu2O nanotube arrays showed high capacity, cyclability, and rate capability. ...
  • O'Dwyer, Colm; Navas, D.; Lavayan, Vladimir; Benavente, Eglantina; Santa Ana, M. A.; Gonzalez, Guillermo; Newcomb, Simon B.; Sotomayor Torres, Clivia M. (American Chemical Society, 2006-01)
    We report the observation of urchin-like nanostructures consisting of high-density spherical nanotube radial arrays of vanadium oxide nanocomposite, successfully synthesized by a simple chemical route using an ethanolic ...
  • Lee, Alice S.; Gibbon, Fiona E.; Crampin, Lisa; Yuen, Ivan; McLennan, Grant (Taylor & Francis Ltd., 2007-03)
    Although previous studies have demonstrated the benefits of using electropalatography (EPG) for treating therapy-resistant articulation errors associated with cleft palate, until recently access to this form of treatment ...
  • Hennessy, Áine (University College Cork, 2013)
    This research investigated the micronutrient intakes of Irish pre-school children (1-4 years) and adults (18-64 years) and the role that fortified foods (FFs) play in the diets of these population groups. Dietary intake ...
  • O'Leary, Deirdre M.; Ruth, Albert A.; Dixneuf, Sophie; Orphal, Johannes; Varma, Ravi M. (Elsevier, 2012-01)
    The absorption spectrum of methyl cyanide (CH3CN) has been measured in the near IR between 6000 and 8000 cm(-1) with a resolution of 0.12 cm(-1) using Fourier transform incoherent broadband cavity-enhanced absorption ...
  • Chen, Jun; Wenger, John C.; Venables, Dean S. (American Chemical Society, 2011-09-29)
    Nitrophenols and methylnitrophenols have been identified as photolytic precursors of nitrous acid, HONO, but their gas-phase absorption has not previously been reported. In this study, the absorption cross sections of ...
  • Koslowski, Nora Christina (University College Cork, 2012-04)
    When people work from home, the domains of home and work are co-located, often under one roof. Home-workers have to cope with the meeting of two practices that have traditionally been physically separated. In light of ...
  • Burgoyne, Louise N.; Woods, Catherine; Coleman, Rosarie; Perry, Ivan J. (BioMed Central Ltd., 2008-03-28)
    Background: Effective promotion of physical activity in low income communities is essential given the high prevalence of inactivity in this sector. Methods: This study explored determinants of engaging in physical activity ...
  • Ó Drisceoil, Donal (Cambridge University Press, 2006-01)

  • Woods, David (Editions Latomus, 2009)
    The purpose of this paper is to propose a new understanding of the relationship between Nero and the young freedman Sporus whom he apparently 'married' sometime during his tour of Greece in AD 66-67. Dio claims that Nero ...
  • Toulouse, André; Collins, Grace C.; Sullivan, Aideen M. (Springer-Verlag, 2012)
    The neurotrophin growth/differentiation factor 5 (GDF5) is studied as a potential therapeutic agent for Parkinson's disease as it is believed to play a role in the development and maintenance of the nigrostriatal system. ...
  • Sullivan, Aideen M.; Toulouse, André (Elsevier, 2011-06)
    Parkinson's disease (PD) is a common neurodegenerative disorder caused by the progressive degeneration of the nigrostriatal dopaminergic pathway. The resulting loss of dopamine neurotransmission is responsible for the ...
