The simple preparation of a conducting and transparent polypyrrole film (1990)
Journal Article
Ratcliffe, N. M., & Ratcliffe, N. M. (1990). The simple preparation of a conducting and transparent polypyrrole film. Synthetic Metals, 38(1), 87-92. https://doi.org/10.1016/0379-6779%2890%2990070-2

The preparation of transparent, c. 50 nm thick, conducting (c. 5.0 S cm-1) films of polypyrrole onto non-conducting substrates, e.g. acrylic, polyester, glass is described. The coating was produced by a dip process into a colloidal dispersion of poly... Read More about The simple preparation of a conducting and transparent polypyrrole film.

Polypyrrole-based sensor for hydrazine and ammonia (1990)
Journal Article
Ratcliffe, N. M. (1990). Polypyrrole-based sensor for hydrazine and ammonia. Analytica Chimica Acta, 239(C), 257-262. https://doi.org/10.1016/S0003-2670%2800%2983859-3

An ultra-thin layer of polypyrrole can be coated on non-conducting substrates, e.g., acrylic, by dip coating into a colloidal suspension of polypyrrole. This thin coating reversibly combines with low concentrations of ammonia or hydrazine with a conc... Read More about Polypyrrole-based sensor for hydrazine and ammonia.

The Biosynthesis of Melanin‐Concentrating Hormone in a Fish (1990)
Journal Article
Bird, D. J., Baker, B. I., Eberle, A., & Swann, R. W. (1990). The Biosynthesis of Melanin‐Concentrating Hormone in a Fish. Journal of Neuroendocrinology, 2(3), 309-315. https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2826.1990.tb00410.x

This work investigated the biosynthesis of a neurohypophysial hormone, melanin‐concentrating hormone (MCH), in the trout. Sephadex G‐75 chromatography showed the presence of several large MCH‐immunoreactive molecules in hypothalamic and pituitary gla...

Arterial pulse modulates steady-state ocular accommodation (1990)
Journal Article
Winn, B., Pugh, J. R., Gilmartin, B., & Owens, H. (1990). Arterial pulse modulates steady-state ocular accommodation. Current Eye Research, 9(10), 971-975. https://doi.org/10.3109/02713689009069933

Rapid and continuous fluctuations in ocular focus are known to occur when the eye views a stationary target. The advent of high-speed infra-red optometers has established that these microfluctuations of ocular accommodation have two dominant componen...
