Catalyst Enabled in Situ Linkage Reduction in Imine Covalent Organic Frameworks

April 29, 2021
Jiyun Hu, Federica Zanca, Gregory McManus, Isabella Riha, Huong Giang Nguyen, William Shirley, Collin Borcik, Benjamin Wylie, Mourad Benamara, Roger van Zee, Peyman Moghadam, M. Hassan Beyzavi
New linkages for covalent organic frameworks (COFs) have been continuously pursued by chemists as it serves as the structure and property foundation for the materials. Developing new reaction types or modifying known linkages have been the only two methods

NIST on a Chip: Photonic and Quantum-Based Sensors for Measurements of Pressure, Vacuum, Temperature and Beyond!

April 29, 2021
Jay H. Hendricks, Zeeshan Ahmed, Daniel Barker, Stephen Eckel, James A. Fedchak, Nikolai Klimov, Julia Scherschligt
At the core of the NIST on a Chip (NoAC) program is the idea that measurement technology can be developed to enable metrology to be done "outside the National Metrology Institute" by virtue of deployed and often miniaturized standards (that can also serve

National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan 2020

February 9, 2021
Heather Evans, Kristen Greene, William M. Healy, Elizabeth Hoffman, Kate Rimmer, Anna V. Sberegaeva, Neil M. Zimmerman
The 2020 National Institute of Standards and Technology Environmental Scan provides an analysis of key external factors that could impact NIST and the fulfillment of its mission in coming years. The analyses were conducted through four separate lenses

Quantitative Analysis of Zirconium Alloys Using Borate Fusion and Wavelength Dispersive X-Ray Fluorescence Spectrometry

January 26, 2021
John R. Sieber, Anthony F. Marlow, Rick L. Paul, Charles A. Barber, Laura J. Wood, Lee L. Yu, Alaina Rieke, Amy Kutnerian, Jessica McCandless, Candace Wallace
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) uses borate fusion, wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence (WDXRF) spectrometry and synthetic calibration standards for high performance, quantitative analyses of a wide range of materials

Production and Analysis of RM 8403 Cocoa Flavanol Extract

October 23, 2020
Catherine A. Rimmer, Katrice A. Lippa, James H. Yen, Ugo Bussy, Gregory Hewitt, Nicholas P. Anderson, Catherine Kwik-Uribe
NIST Reference Material 8403 is intended for use in harmonizing methods for the determination of cocoa flavanols monomers and their oligomers up to a degree of polymerization (DP) of 7 units. RM 8403 is a free-flowing powder containing cocoa flavanols

High-density polyethylene - an inert additive with stabilizing effects on organic field-effect transistors

September 11, 2020
Alberto Scaccabarozzi, James Basham, Liyang Yu, Paul Westcott, Weimin Zhang, Aram Amassian, Iain McCulloch, Mario Caironi, David J. Gundlach, Natalie Stingelin
Organic electronics technologies have attracted considerable interest over the last decades and have become promising alternatives to conventional, inorganic platforms for specific applications. To fully exploit the touted potential of plastic electronics

Early stage nucleation in barium disilicate glass

August 1, 2020
Ling Cai, Randall E. Youngman, David E. Baker, Aram Rezikyan, Minghui Zhang, Bryan Wheaton, Indrajit Dutta, Bruce G. Aitken, Andrew J. Allen
Early stage nucleation in silicate glasses is often evidenced by formation of nanosized regions that are stoichiometrically different from the surrounding matrix. The structural origin of these early stage nucleation sites is of great interest in gaining a

IFCC working group recommendations for correction of bias caused by non-commutability of a certified reference material used in the calibration hierarchy of an end-user measurement procedure

June 1, 2020
Johanna Camara, W. Greg Miller, Jeffrey R. Budd, Neil Greenberg, Weykamp Cas, Harald Althaus, Heinz Schimmel, Mauro Panteghini, Vincent Delatour, Ferruccio Ceriotti, Thomas Keller, Douglas Hawkins, Robert Rej, Finlay MacKenzie, Elina van der Hagen, Hubert W. Vesper
Establishing metrological traceability to a matrix-based certified reference material (CRM) that has been validated to be commutable among a group of measurement procedures (MPs) is central to producing equivalent results for a measurand in clinical

Quasi-elastic Neutron Scattering Measurement of Hydrogen Diffusion in a Graphene Oxide Framework

April 16, 2020
Matthew J. Connolly, Z. N. Buck, Carlos Wexler, Joseph C. Schaeperkoetter, H. Taub, Andrew Gillespie, Helmut Kaiser
We present quasielastic neutron scattering (QENS) spectra from molecular hydrogen adsorbed in GOF. The measurements probed the motion of adsorbed hydrogen as a function of pressure, in order to understand the relationship between the motion of adsorbed

Characterization of triacontyl (C-30) liquid chromatographic columns

March 15, 2020
Lane C. Sander, Catherine A. Rimmer, Walter B. Wilson
Differences in the performance characteristics of seventeen commercial C30 liquid chromatographic columns were studied for the separation of carotenoid isomers. A mixture consisting of nine xanthophyll and hydrocarbon carotenoids were separated under

Optimum lithium loading of a liquid scintillator for neutron and neutrino detection

February 11, 2020
Hans P. Mumm, Denis E. Bergeron, Mark A. Tyra, Jerome J. LaRosa, Svetlana Nour, T.J. Langford, Dimitry A. Pushin
Neutral particle detection in high-background environments is greatly aided by the ability to easily load 6Li into liquid scintillators. We describe a readily available and inexpensive liquid scintillation cocktail stably loaded with up to 1 % Li by mass

Excess Electrons Bound to H2S Trimer and Tetramer Clusters

January 24, 2020
Gaoxiang Liu, Manuel D?az-Tinoco, Sandra M. Ciborowski, Svetlana Lyspustina, Jay H. Hendricks, Vincent Ortiz, Kit H. Bowen
The hydrogen sulfide trimer and tetramer anions, (H2S)3– and (H2S)4–, were generated by Rydberg electron transfer and studied via a synergy between velocity-map imaging anion photoelectron spectroscopy and high-level quantum chemical calculations. The
