After manual dismantling of printed circuit boards, speakers, wires, protective metal casing, deflection system, and electron gun, CRT screens are cut off the cone along the line of welding using the diamond wheel; luminophore is cleaned away by the laboratory vacuum cleaner; screens are washed of process contaminations and dried to prepare for crushing and milling.
To enable such a change, the design integrates a chromophore or luminophore into the receptor, either by covalent or non-covalent attachment.
For example, light emission can be observed at an electrode placed in contact with an aqueous solution containing luminophore Ru(bpy)32+ (ruthenium (II) tris(2,2'-bipyridine) and an ECL coreactant tripropylamine (TPrA) upon anodic potential scanning.
The luminophore of the photoprotein-based bioluminescence systems of hydrozoans and ctenophores is coelenterazine (Anctil and Shimomura, 1984; Shimomura, 1985).
It also produces a variety of rare earth-based luminophore powders used in energy-efficient light bulbs or high-precision polishing powders for the electronics market.
ECL produced from electrochemically oxidized and reduced species is called "annihilation ECL", while "coreactant ECL" is produced from the interactions between electrochemically reduced or oxidized luminophore and a strongly oxidizing or reducing intermediate formed after the chemical decomposition of an electrochemically reduced or oxidized coreactant.
This will rely on the unprecedented combination of two-photon excitation of a d-block luminophore (Pt- or Ir-based) having a long-lived excited state, followed by partial d-f energy-transfer to sensitise the lanthanide ion.
Separation of bound and unbound TSH is made by a magnet, and luminescence from a luminophore is triggered electrochemically.
Herein, we present a novel highly sensitive and selective enhanced ECL method to detect o-aminophenol on the basis of doughnut-shaped structure of the cyclodextrin, using CdSe quantum dots as a luminophores.
The GBU leverages its distinctive knowledge to provide specialized products and solutions to selected industries, such as: rare earth-based formulations for use in automotive catalysts, luminophores and polishing; NOCOLOK fluxes for automotive heat exchangers; Solkane 365 as foam blowing agent in thermal insulation foams; fluorinated intermediates for agrochemicals and pharmaceuticals; process chemicals for semiconductors; barium salts for electronic passive components, etc.
Other areas explored include screening tests for selecting anticancer metal compounds, gold-based therapeutic agents, MRI contrast agents, metal-based radiopharmaceuticals, and biomedical applications of metal-containing luminophores.
