Electric Double Layer Capacitors of High Volumetric Energy Based on Ionic Liquids and Hierarchical-Pore Carbon
Hsisheng Teng

Electric double-layer capacitors (EDLCs) are one of the most reliable energy-storage devices because of the physical nature of their charge-storage mechanism. Ionic liquids are promising electrolytes that can be used to extend the voltage window of EDLCs and enhance the energy and power performance of EDLC cells. We report for the first time that the function of carbon micropores is indispensable …

Social interaction with a helper rescues memory deficit in an animal model of Alzheimer’s disease by increasing BDNF-dependent hippocampal neurogenesis
Po-Wu Gean

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease in which cognitive deficits gradually worsen with age. Until now, there are no effective treatments in preventing or retarding the progression of AD. We have often been told that maintain social connection with others and keep mental active can decrease the risk of developing AD, yet the underlying mechanism of the beneficial …

A Stable Mode-Transition Technique for a Digitally Controlled Non-Inverting Buck-Boost DC-DC Converter
Chien-Hung Tsai

This paper presents a stable mode-transition technique for a digitally controlled non-inverting buck-boost dc-dc converter, as shown in Fig. 1. The system is based on the li-ion battery which is suitable for portable devices as the power supply, and its output voltage varies from 2.7 V to 4.2 V. For variable nature of the battery output voltage, the system take the step-down converter structure …

Interaction of ciprofloxacin and probe compounds with palygorskite
Wei-Teh Jiang

Fluoroquinolone antibiotics have been widely used in human therapy, veterinary treatment and aquaculture applications and imperceptibly become harmful to the environment through time. Clay minerals as a major host of many organic compounds have often been utilized to remove organic contaminants in various aqueous conditions. Like most of other fluoroquinolones, ciprofloxacin possesses more than …
