They found that very short sleep was associated with less intake of tap water, lycopene (found in red- and orange-colored foods), and total carbohydrates, short sleep was associated with less vitamin C, tap water, selenium (found in nuts, meat and shellfish), and more lutein/zeaxanthin (found in green, leafy vegetables), and long sleep was associated with less intake of theobromine (found in chocolate and tea), dodecanoic acid (a saturated fat) choline (found in eggs and fatty meats), total carbohydrates, and more alcohol.
The resultant metallic coating had a superhydrophilic nature, but could he switched into superhydrophohic by spraying an acetone solution of dodecanoic acid while the sprayed surface remained within a temperature range of 100-200[degrees]C, although dodecanoic acid itself has a hydrophilic nature.
