As a company that puts science first, our peer-reviewed publications are very important to us.  You can check out our extensive library of publications to see the variety and depth of subjects on which our scientists have published over the years.

Naturally, we are always excited when our publications make an impact in the scientific community, and recently, two publications with co-authors from RJ Lee Group have been recognized for doing so.

Science Selects Publication on Nanoparticle Transformers as Editors’ Choice

The highly respected Science journal chose RJ Lee Group’s Senior Scientist Long Li’s publication “Non-Crystalline-to-Crystalline Transformations in Pt Nanoparticles,” as its August 9 issue Editors’ Choice in Materials Science.  The publication, which Li co-authored, examines platinum nanoparticles and the fact that there is not a single size in which they change in phase from non-crystalline to crystalline. Instead, the authors discovered that there was a size range in which the nanoparticles could exist in either phase, depending on the substrate used and the amount of H2 absorbed.  Get the Science review of the publication for free with registration, or view the abstract and purchase the original paper.

NIOSH Nominates Paper on Carbon Nanotubes for Charles C. Shepard Science Award

NIOSH selected RJ Lee Group’s Dr. Kristin Bunker and John Mastovich, co-authors of “Single-walled carbon nanotube-induced mitotic disruption,” as one of the nominees for the Charles C. Shepard Science Award in the category of Laboratory Science. The award is sponsored by the U.S. CDC and presented to the best peer-reviewed manuscript published by a CDC or ATSDR scientist. The nominated publication investigated risks to workers that may be exposed to carbon nanotubes. The authors found that occupational exposure to carbon nanotubes could potentially have health concerns, concluding that caution should be used when handling and processing them.  View the abstract and purchase the original paper.
