  • Measured long-ranged attractive interaction between charged polystyrene latex spheres at a water-air interface 

    Chen, W.; Tan, S.; Huang, Z.; Ng, Tai-Kai; Ford, Warren T.; Tong, Penger; Tan, S.; Ford, Warren T. (Physical Review E, 2006-08-15)
    We report results of a systematic experimental study of interactions between charged polystyrene (PS) latex spheres at a water-air interface. Optical observations of stable bonded particle clusters and formation of circular ...
  • Long-ranged attraction between charged polystyrene spheres at aqueous interfaces 

    Chen, W.; Tan, S.; Ng, Tai-Kai; Ford, Warren T.; Tong, Penger; Tan, S.; Ford, Warren T. (Physical Review Letters, 2005-11-15)
    We report an optical and atomic force microscopic study of interactions between charged polystyrene spheres at a water-air interface. Optical observations of bonded particle clusters and formation of circular chainlike ...
  • Donor-acceptor nanoensembles of soluble carbon nanotubes 

    Guldi, D. M.; Rahman, G. N. A.; Ramey, J.; Marcaccio, Massimo; Paolucci, D.; Paolucci, Francesco; Qin, S.; Ford, Warren T.; Balbinot, D.; Jux, N.; Tagmatarchis, Nikos; Prato, M.; Qin, S.; Ford, Warren T. (Chemical Communications, 2004-08-10)
    Donor�acceptor nanoensembles, prepared via electrostatic interactions of single wall carbon nanotubes and porphyrin salts, give rise to photoinduced intra-complex charge separation that lasts tens of microseconds.
  • Survey of alkyl methacrylate latexes as aqueous catalytic media 

    Miller, P. D.; Ford, Warren T.; Miller, P. D.; Ford, Warren T. (1998-09-28)
    Cationic polymer latexes serve as catalytic media for the hydrolysis of p-nitrophenyl esters by providing a more lipophilic environment into which these compounds can partition from the aqueous phase. The latex quaternary ...
  • Multilayer formation in an azacrown [18]N6 Langmuir film 

    Heiney, P. A.; Gidalevitz, D.; Maliszewskyj, N. C.; Satija, S.; Vaknin, D.; Pan, Y.; Ford, Warren T.; Pan, Y.; Ford, Warren T. (Chemical Communications, 1998-01-01)
    A neutron reflectivity study of a deuterated azacrown [18]N6 at the air-water interface shows that it forms multilayers upon compression, with monolayers and trilayers being more stable than bilayers.
  • XANES and EXAFS study of a platinum phthalocyanine 

    Chang, Y. H.; Choi, K. H.; Ford, Warren T.; Cho, S. J.; Ryoo, R.; Ford, Warren T. (Chemical Communications, 1994-01-01)
    Extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) and X-ray absorption near-edge structure (XANES) studies on [octa(2-ethylhexyloxy)phthalocyaninato]platinum [PtL] as a film at room temperature suggest that the structure ...
  • Autoxidation of tetralin in water catalysed by Cobalt(ii)-pyridine complexes bound to polymer colloids 

    Chandran, R. S.; Ford, Warren T.; Chandran, R. S.; Ford, Warren T. (Chemical Communications, 1988-01-01)
    Cobalt(ii)-pyridine complexes bound to 60 nm diameter latex copolymers of styrene, divinylbenzene, and either acrylic or methacrylic acid catalyse autoxidation of tetralin in water faster than cobalt(ii)-pyridine complexes ...
  • Triethyl-n-hexylammonium triethyl-n-hexylboride: a new antimicrobial showing activity against Candida albicans and gram-positive bacteria 

    Rosenthal, K. S.; Storm, D. R.; Ford, Warren T.; Ford, Warren T. (Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 1975-10)
    The organic salt triethyl-n-hexylammonium triethyl-n-hexylboride (N2226 B2226) has biostatic effects against two gram-positive bacteria, Bacillus subtilis and Micrococcus luteus, and the yeast Candida albicans. Escherichia ...
