Scientists at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City had recently discovered that ingesting cyanate salts could prevent the "sickling" of red blood cells that leads to the anaemia and pain of sickle cell disease.
As a result, after surface pretreatment, the roughness on an epoxy and/or cyanate ester type dielectric surface is still as low as Ra=80 [+ or -] l 8nm, compared to that of raw dielectric material at Ra= 50 [+ or -] 5nm as received.
It is formed by non-enzymatic condensation of cyanate with the N-terminal valine of hemoglobin, and is increased due to abnormal urea concentration, which is dissociated in vivo to yield cyanate ions.
Their topics include the role of environmentally friendly adsorbents in the defluoridation of water, silicate ceramics and its composites for hard tissue applications, binding interactions and morphology studies of nanoparticles treated with 3-aminopropyltriethoxysilane, and cyanate esters based organic-inorganic hybrid nanocomposites for low-K dielectric applications.
