In this study, we describe a nanostructured ZnO adsorbent, which displays remarkable efficiency toward the removal of widely used azo dyes, methyl orange (MO) and amaranth (AM), from aqueous systems. The ZnO nanoparticles (ZnO-NPs) were prepared by simple co-precipitation method, and the structural morphology of the as-prepared NPs was revealed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform IR (FTIR) and Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET). After complementary characterization, as-prepared ZnO-NPs were further used as adsorbent for the removal of toxic azo dyes (MO and AM) from water...

Authors: Ryu S, Chang Y, Kim YS, Kim HJ Abstract OBJECTIVES: We aimed to examine the relationship between sitting time and the development of ultrasonography-diagnosed gallstone disease (GSD) in young and middle-aged Korean men and women. MATERIAL AND METHODS: We conducted a cohort study of 147,237 participants without GSD at baseline who underwent a health checkup examination between 2011 and 2015 and were followed annually or biennially until December 2016. Sitting time and physical activity were measured using the validated Korean version of the international physical activity questionnaire short form. GSD w...

Publication date: 1 November 2018Source: Carbohydrate Polymers, Volume 199Author(s): Rahmi, Lelifajri, Rizki NurfatimahAbstractPreparation and characterization of polyethylene glycol diglycidyl ether (PEDGE) crosslinked chitosan/activated carbon composite film have been conducted. PEDGE was used as crosslinking agent and activated carbon as a filler on composite film preparation. The composite films were produced with several ratios of chitosan/PEDGE/activated carbon. Tensile test, Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR), X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) and Scanning electron Microscope (SEM) were used to study the structure and properti...

Publication date: Available online 21 July 2018Source: Chemico-Biological InteractionsAuthor(s): Bharath Kumar VelmuruganAbstractThe psychoactive properties of cannabinoids are well known and there has been a continuous controversy regarding the usage of these compounds for therapeutic purposes all over the world. Their use for medical and research purposes are restricted in various countries. However, their utility as medications should not be overshadowed by their negative physiological activities. This review article is focused on the therapeutic potential and applications of phytocannabinoids and endocannabinoids. It h...

ConclusionsImpingement-type bony morphology was related to cartilage defects, but not labral tear. Hip pain was not associated with pathology or bony morphology. Longitudinal studies are warranted to determine if bony features, such as cam morphology, acetabular retroversion or anteversion, are precursors to symptomatic hip joint injury or osteoarthritis.

In this month ’s first feature article, Silva’s group report that a 16 week in-classroom standing desk intervention reduced sitting time without an increase in sedentary behaviour out of school time. In the second featured article, Tsikopoulos and colleagues report the results of a network meta-analysis on in terventions to enhance dynamic balance in individuals with chronic ankle instability. In the third feature article Mayes, Smith and Cook suggest that impingement related bony morphology is not related to pain in professional dancers’ hips.
