In this study, the control strategy of alcohol medium was developed to conveniently synthesize monodisperse anatase-TiO2 nanocrystals with controllable size and shape by sol-gel method combined with solvothermal treatment. The effects of the amount of stearic acid and water, and molecular structure of alcohol on the size, the shape and the dispersity of TiO2 nanocrystals were explored. The optimum synthesis conditions were achieved. Monodisperse TiO2 nanoparticles and nanorods were obtained by using linear and branched alcohols, respectively. The size of nanoparticles decreased from 12 to 5 nm with increasing carbon number...

By HANS DUVEFELT MD  I have seen the light. I now, finally, see a clear role for artificial intelligence in health care. And, no, I don’t want it to replace me. I want it to complement me. I want AI to take over the mandated, mundane tasks of what I call Metamedicine, so I can concentrate on the healing. In primary care visits in the U.S., doctors and clinics are buried in government mandates. We have to screen for depression and alcohol use, document weight counseling for every overweight patient (the vast majority of Americans), make sure we probe about gender at birth and current gender identification, offer ...
