In this study, carbon nanotube (CNT) reinforced Nylon 66 nanofibers were used to modify the mechanical properties of cementitious materials. Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) and multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) were dispersed into the polymer solution of Nylon 66. CNT reinforced Nylon 66 nanofibers were fabricated and mixed directly with ordinary Portland cement through an electrospinning process using an improved collector. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) and field emission transmission electron microscope (FE-TEM) were employed to investigate the morphological characteristics of nanofibers as well as the ...

ConclusionsSUVm does not correlate with glycolytic metabolism in human NSCLC, but does correlate with the proliferation index, suggesting that SUVm predicts glucose use by pathways other than glycolysis. These pathways may offer alternative therapeutic targets, including biosynthetic pathways required for cell proliferation. The research techniques in this study offer the opportunity to understand the relationships between SUVm, tumor metabolism, and therapeutic vulnerabilities in human NSCLCs.

In this study, a novel metal-organic framework (MOF) delivery system for a food bioactive was developed. A series of molecular simulations tools, reported in recent years, have been applied to predict and optimize the delivery system. First, Zr-based MOF UiO-66, was synthesized with zirconium (IV) chloride and benzene-1,4-dicarboxylic acid. Then, curcumin was encapsulated in it using a post-synthesis loading method. Both spectroscopy and thermogravimetric analysis showed that the system achieved a high loading capacity of 3.45% w/w. The crystal structure, porosity, morphology of the curcumin delivery system were characteri...

In part I of this two-part series we discussed results obtained by potentiometric titration, rheology and turbidimetry. Here we report on the microstructure of both the proteins and the polysaccharides using confocal laser scanning microscopy with different fluorescent labels for each type of biopolymer. The effect of KC concentration at fixe...
