Metal oxides comprise a class of materials that contain transition elements and oxygen. They include insulators as well as (poor) metals. Often the same material may display both types of transport properties, hence a Metal-Insulator transition, obtained by varying either temperature or pressure. 274 more words
We lucked out during today’s smoke firing workshop because the moment we had lit the barrel, the rain came pouring down.

A classification-based cytotoxicity nanostructure–activity relationship (nanoSAR) is presented based on a set of nine metal oxide nanoparticles to which transformed bronchial epithelial cells (BEAS-2B) were exposed over a range of concentrations (0.375–200 mg L−1) and exposure times up to 24 h. 182 more words
