Photofragment translational spectroscopy experiments employing tunable vacuum ultraviolet photoionization yielded absolute photoionization cross sections for vinyl and propargyl radicals at 10 eV of 11.1±2.2 and 8.3±1.6 Mb, respectively. From these values, the photoionization efficiency curves from 7.8–10.8 eV for these radicals were placed on an absolute scale.

Carbon nanotubes are shown to be modulators of ionic gradients possibly impacting artificial nanophysiology. In contrast with wider nanotubes, the ion traffic inside narrow nanotubes (∼9.45 Å diameter) eventually reaches steady stoichiometries which may be dramatically different from bulk ratios. The narrow nanotube reduces the polarizability of confined water so that charge imbalances inside cannot be sustained.
