Data for ‘On-chip density-based sorting of supercooled droplets and frozen droplets in continuous flow’Grace Porter, Sebastien Sikora, Jung-uk Shim, Benjamin Murray & Mark Tarn
The freezing of supercooled water to ice and the materials which catalyse this process are of fundamental interest to a wide range of fields. At present, our ability to control, predict or monitor ice formation processes is poor. The isolation and characterisation of frozen droplets from supercooled liquid droplets would provide a means of improving our understanding and control of these processes. Here, we have developed a microfluidic platform for the continuous flow separation of...

Within-host models of COVID-19 infection dynamics enable the merits of different forms of antiviral therapy to be assessed in individual patients. A stochastic agent-based model of COVID-19 intracellular dynamics is introduced here, that incorporates essential steps of the viral life cycle targeted by treatment options. Integration of model predictions with an intercellular ODE model of within-host infection dynamics, fitted to patient data, generates a generic profile of disease progression in patients that have recovered in...
Catalytic data describing the production of formate from the hydrogenation of CO2 using iron-sulfide, iron-nickel-sulphide and nickel-sulfide catalysts prepared with different heat treatments under a range of reaction conditions. Catalyst characterisation of these materials include XRD analysis, giving an understanding of the violarite phase and crystallinity. XPS analysis gains understanding of the iron, nickel and sulphur species, and how sulphide and oxide species change under thermal oxidation. XAS analysis employed is vital to gain more...
Supplementary Data - Regional policies targeting residential solid fuel and agricultural emissions can improve air quality and public health in the Greater Bay Area and across ChinaLuke Conibear, Carly Reddington, Ben Silver, Christoph Knote, Steve Arnold & Dominick Spracklen
Air pollution exposure is a leading public health problem in China. The majority of the air pollution disease burden is from fine particulate matter (PM2.5) exposure, with smaller contributions from ozone (O3) exposure. Recent emission reductions have reduced PM2.5 exposure. However, levels of exposure and the associated risk remain high, some pollutant emissions have increased, and some sectors lack effective emission control measures. We quantified the potential impacts of policy scenarios on ambient air quality...
Supplementary: Global continental and marine detrital εNd: an updated compilation for use in understanding marine Nd cyclingSuzanne Robinson, Ruza Ivanovic, Tina van de Flierdt, Cecile Blanchet, Kazuyo Tachikawa, Ellen E. Martin, Carys Falko, Trevor Williams, Lauren Gregoire, Yves Plancherel, Catherine Jeandel & Thomas Arsouze
Understanding the role of sediment-water interactions in the oceanic cycling of neodymium (Nd) isotopes is essential for its reliable use as a modern and palaeoceanographic tracer of ocean circulation. However, the exact processes that control Nd cycling in the ocean are poorly defined and require an up-to-date knowledge of the sources, sinks and transformation of this tracer to and within the ocean (e.g. as per the GEOTRACES core mission). We propose a considerable improvement of...

Two iron complexes are isomorphous but show different spin-state behaviour on cooling. This may be influenced by the packing of alkyl vs alkynyl chains in the solid state.

The third national lockdown began early January 2021 and started to ease on 8th March when schools and limited outdoor social contact resumed. Police-recorded crime rates per 10,000 population (in orange) are here compared to expected rates (black lines, with confidence intervals in grey). Crime effects in January and February 2021 were similar to first lockdown (Apr-Jun 2020) but with notable differences. Acquisitive crime except bike theft fell sharply but began to increase in March....
Data for Time-temperature superposition of the dissolution of silk fibres in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetateMichael Ries
This study investigated the dissolution of silk multifilament fibres in the ionic liquid 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate. The dissolution process was found to create a silk composite fibre, comprising undissolved silk multi-filaments surrounded by a coagulated silk matrix. The dissolution procedure was carried out for a range of temperatures and times. The resulting composite fibres were studied using a combination of optical microscopy, wide angle X-ray diffraction (XRD) and tensile testing. An azimuthal (alpha) XRD scan enabled...
Microbubbles (MBs) are widely used as contrast agents for ultrasound imaging and have been shown to enhance therapeutic delivery. However, they are only stable in solution for a few hours after production, which limits their potential application. Freeze-drying provides long term storage, ease of transport and consistency for therapeutic preparations thereby facilitating their use in clinical settings. The ability to freeze-dry therapeutic MBs is an important development in the translation of therapeutic MBs for clinical...
In this Global Review on Safer End of Engineered Life, we take a long overdue and systematic look at the scientific evidence around waste and resources management and the impact on human health and life. Surprisingly, this research appears to be the first of its kind anywhere in the world. We offer suggestions for immediate corrective action that should be taken and identify where engineering solutions could mitigate and prevent harm to human life and...
