The Smashing Pumpkins follow their lead singer's, Billy Corgan, theory that, "Great music completely obliterates any conceptions of genre." The Smashing Pumpkins took their local Chicago sound of metal, alt-rock, psychedelic dream pop, and shared it with the world....   [tags: Music]

The PPy nanofibers formed in the presence of HCl (A1) are quite uniform and longer than the nanofibers prepared with HNO3 (A2), whereas, agglomerated structures without any definite shape and size have been observed with HClO4 (A3) and H2SO4 (A4).
