Due to the screening effect the application of singlewall CNTs for the enhancement of energy dissipation is more effective than the application of multiwall CNTs or CNT bundles at the same mass fraction of CNT inclusions. The INCB28060 inhibitor presence of a lossy dielectric (surfactant) coating can significantly increase the absorption cross section of singlewall CNTs. (c) 2010 American Institute of Physics.

“A novel fibrous adsorbent that grafts glycidyl methacrylate (GMA) and methacrylic acid (MAA) monomer mixture onto poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fibers was used for removal of methylene blue (MB) in aqueous solutions by a batch equilibration technique.
The operation parameters investigated included, pH of solution, removal time, graft yield, dye concentration, and reaction temperature. The adsorption rate of MB is much higher on the MAA/GMA-grafted PET fibers than on the ungrafted PET fibers. MB was removed 99% the initial dye concentration at XMU-MP-1 in vivo 10 mg L-1 and 93% at 200 mg L-1 by monomers mixture-grafted PET fibers. Pseudofirst order and pseudosecond order kinetic equations were used to examine the experimental data of different graft yield. It was found that the pseudosecond order kinetic equation described the data
of dye adsorption on fibrous adsorbent very well. The experimental isotherms data were analyzed using Langmuir and Freundlich isotherm models. The data was that Freundlich isotherm model fits the data very well for the dyes on the fibers adsorbent. The dye adsorbed was easily desorbed by treating with acetic acid/methanol mixture (50% V/V) at room temperature. (C) 2010 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. J Appl Polym Sci 119: 3034-3042, 2011″
“Mucormycosis is an aggressive and potentially
devastating fungal infection which typically manifests in pulmonary, rhinocerebral, or disseminated forms in patients with hematologic malignancy. Mucormycosis confined to the periodontium is uncommon, and to our knowledge only 6 cases have been reported in the English-language literature. This case report describes a patient with acute leukemia and periodontal mucormycosis. Calcofluor fluorescence microscopy is also proposed as a method for establishing a prompt diagnosis and guiding extent of intraoperative surgical debridement.

“Catalysts are widely utilized to promote reactions in liquid and gaseous phases but are rarely encountered in solid state synthesis. Here we use catalytically active (001) ceria buffers to modify the structure of the epitaxial high temperature superconductor YBa2Cu3O7. The modification is achieved by catalytically-assisted synthesis of a previously unknown metastable phase. The new phase, a long-period (3.5 nm) perovskite, intercalates into the YBa2Cu3O7 matrix without negatively affecting the critical temperature of the film.
