Phosphorene is a new 2D material that has recently attracted much attention owing to its fascinating electrical, optical, thermal, and chemical properties. Here, we report on high-quality exfoliation of black phosphorus nanosheets, with controllable size produced in large quantities by liquid phase exfoliation using N-methyl-2-pyrrolidone (NMP) as a solvent under ambient conditions. The as-synthesized few layers show a great potential for solar energy conversion based on the optical results shown in this work.

Root associated fungi in Arctic Glacier Forlands raw sequences

Pernille Bronken Eidesen, Synnøve S. Botnen, Sunil Mundra & Håvard Kauserud
Climate change causes Arctic glaciers to retreat faster, exposing new areas for colonization. Several pioneer plants likely to colonize recent deglaciated, nutrient-poor areas depend on fungal partners for successful establishment. Little is known about general patterns or characteristics of facilitating fungal pioneers and how they vary with regional climate in the Arctic. The High Arctic Archipelago Svalbard represents an excellent study system to address these questions, as glaciers cover ∼60% of the land surface and...

Microbial communities associated with the camel tick, Hyalomma dromedarii: 16S rRNA gene-based analysis

Mohammad Ali Al-Deeb, Nighat Perveen, Sabir Bin Muzaffar & Ranjit Vijayan
Background Hyalomma dromedarii is a very important blood-feeding ectoparasite that affects the health of camels in many parts of the world including the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The current study was conducted to assess the profile of the bacterial communities associated with H. dromedarii in the eastern part of the UAE in 2019 in comparison with ticks collected in 2010. Methods We performed 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing using primers flanking the V3 V4 region....
