Note, this can be a prequel to Queen urban Jazz
This is the way it begins...
...with the Silence, born of mysterious, space-originated phenomena that render Earth's dominant applied sciences dead -- inspiring paranoia and alien invasion fears inside of mystery executive organisations, which, in flip, encourage repressive activities opposed to a perceived enemy populace.
...and with murder, as New Orleans mob boss and voudoun queen, Marie Laveau, dies in a hail of gunfire -- and is remade during the wonders of nanotechnology.
In a brand new international that necessity has transfigured -- an exciting, seething stew of microscopic equipment and genetic engineering; of totalinarianism, eco-terrorism and violence -- Marie Laveau's starvation for vengance is giving method to anything greater.
For future has named her savior of the outcasts, the opressed, the crazies, the hunted and the Silence's mutant teenagers, who all flock to her dream of a destiny as candy as an Ellington riff...and a secure haven known as Crescent urban.

The solvated gel-like derivative has a bilayered structure. The reaction of silicate gel with T E O S yields TEOS-intercalated layered silicate. The increase of basal spacing in the TEOSintercalated layered silicate may be caused by interlayer solvation and the factor of TEOS molecules The of intercalated T E O S by acid o r base catalyst produces siloxane-intercalated derivatives with well-ordered basal spacing as well as a n increase in the gallery. T h e calcined samples have high specific surface areas between 533 and depending on the catalyst type.
39 n m larger than the gallery height of magadiite precursor gel. 15 n m observed in et reported the effects of organic solvents o n the intercalation of octylamine into According to this result, the expansion of gallery height could be effected not only by the solvation of intercalated octylamine but also by the steric effects of solvated solvent molecules and solvent itself. In the layered silicate gel reacting with excess TEOS, T E O S could be exchanged with solvated free octylamine molecules in the interlayers a n d hydrogen-bonded ion on the inner surface.
The higher molar ratio and the direct synthesis without an intermediate could be taken advantage of for obtaining pure kenyaite industrially. Figure 4 shows scanning electron micrographs of the synthetic magadiite and kenyaite. Na-magadiite shows a particle morphology composed of silicate layers intergrown to form spherical nodules resembling rosettes. The shape of kenyaite is very similar to that of magadiite. The chemical compositions of Na-magadiite and Na-kenyaite were obtained by T G A and EDS analyses for silica and sodium.
