    A giant barocaloric effect (BCE) in a molecular material Fe3(bntrz)6(tcnset)6 (FBT) is reported, where bntrz = 4-(benzyl)-1,2,4-triazole and tcnset = 1,1,3,3-tetracyano-2-thioethylepropenide. The crystal structure of FBT ...
  • OpenFOAM computational fluid dynamics simulations of thermal wind generation in mountain/valley configurations 

    Athota, Rathan Babu; Villardi de Montlaur, Adeline de; Arias Calderón, Santiago; Rojas Gregorio, José Ignacio (2021)
    Conference report
    Open Access
    Thermal winds appear in mountainous areas and valleys due to temperature gradients caused by the buoyancy effects associated with the diurnal heating-cooling cycle of the lower atmosphere. These winds develop over complex ...
  • The introduction of the glaze in al-Andalus: Technological waves and Oriental influences 

    Salinas Pleguezuelo, Elena; Pradell Cara, Trinitat (2020-11-01)
    Article
    Open Access
    This research develops a much-needed approach to the study of glazed ware production in al-Andalus (Muslim Spain and Portugal) during the early Middle Ages. The introduction of glaze to the Iberian Peninsula was a long and ...
  • A facile approach to hydrophilic oxidized fullerenes and their derivatives as cytotoxic agents and supports for nanobiocatalytic systems

    Article
    Open Access
    A facile, environment-friendly, versatile and reproducible approach to the successful oxidation of fullerenes (oxC60) and the formation of highly hydrophilic fullerene derivatives is introduced. This synthesis relies on ...
  • On the microscopic origin of the cryoprotective effect in lysine solutions 

    Henao, Andrés; Ruiz Tabbia, Guadalupe Natalia; Steinke, Nicola; Cerveny Murcia, Silvina; Macovez, Roberto; Busch, Sebastian; McLain, Sylvia E.; Lorenz, Christian D.; Pardo Soto, Luis Carlos (2020-04-07)
    Article
    Open Access
    The amino acid lysine has been shown to prevent water crystallization at low temperatures in saturated aqueous solutions [S. Cerveny and J. Swenson, Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys., 2014, 16, 22382–22390]. Here, we investigate two ...
  • Reversible barocaloric effects over a large temperature span in fullerite C60 

    Li, Junning; Dunstan, David; Lou, Xiaojie; Planes Vila, Antoni; Manosa, L; Barrio Casado, María del; Tamarit Mur, José Luis; Lloveras Muntané, Pol Marcel (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2020-07-31)
    Article
    Restricted access - publisher's policy
    Solid-state cooling methods based on field-driven first-order phase transitions are often limited by significant hysteresis and small temperature span, which increase the input work required to drive the cooling cycle ...
  • Does the trihydrate of atorvastatin calcium possess a melting point? 

    Barrio Casado, María del; Clevers, Simon; Dupray, Valérie; Coquerel, Gerard; Tamarit Mur, José Luis; Rietveld, Ivo B. (2020-05-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    To decide whether an active pharmaceutical ingredient can be used in its amorphous form in drug formulations, often the glass transition is studied in relation to the melting point of the pharmaceutical. If the glass ...
  • The phase relationship between the pyrazinamide polymorphs a and y 

    Barrio Casado, María del; Tamarit Mur, José Luis (2020-04-30)
    Article
    Open Access
    Pyrazinamide is an active pharmaceutical compound for the treatment of tuberculosis. It possesses at least four crystalline polymorphs. Polymorphism may cause solubility problems as the case of ritonavir has clearly ...
  • Polymorphism of 1,3-X-adamantanes (X = Br, OH, CH3) and the crystal plastic phase formation ability
