Abstract To clarify the morphology effect of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) on their electrochemistry as well as to explore their electrochemical applications, three MOFs with metal centers of nickel, cobalt, and zinc are synthesized. The used organic ligand is only 1,3,5-benzenetricarboxylic acid. Characterizations using Fourier Transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and electrochemical techniques reveal that these MOFs possess similar bonding properties, crystalline structures and phase purity, but various morphology and electrochemical activities, including their own ...

Abstract Herein, a novel class-specific artificial receptor-based on molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP)-coated quantum dots (QDs@MIP) was synthesized, characterized, and used for the detection and quantification of the bacterial quorum signaling molecules N-acyl-homoserine lactones (AHLs), a class of autoinducers from Gram-negative bacteria. The QDs@MIP was prepared by surface imprinting technique under controlled conditions using CdSe/ZnS QDs as the signal transducing material. The synthesis of the QDs@MIP was characterized by transmission electron microscopy, scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infr...

ka P, Prokopec V, Švecová M Abstract Recent advances in nanotechnology have opened a lot of new possibilities for nanomaterials application in wide variety of industrial, pharmaceutical, medicinal and environmental applications. This review aims to description of various Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR)-based spectroscopic techniques suitable to characterize (i) different types of nanomaterials and (ii) various macroscopic samples at their nanoscale. In the introductory section, nanomaterials are classified according to their crucial properties, i.e. chemical composition, size and surface morphology...

Authors: Cai Y, Gao T, Fu S, Sun P Abstract The present study formulated a hydroxyapatite (HA)-coated lipid nanoparticle loaded with zoledronic acid to treat patients with osteoporosis (OP). HA-coated zoledronic acid loaded lipid bilayer nanoparticles (HZL NPs) were prepared using methods of extrusion and precipitation. Nanosized particles were prepared with the aim of increasing gradual and prolonged drug release and inducing toxicity of osteoblasts. Cellular morphology was investigated by scanning electron microscopy, which revealed clear spherical shaped NPs ~200 nm in size that could treat osteopores in the bon...

Authors: Tian X, Yu C, Shi L, Li D, Chen X, Xia D, Zhou J, Xu W, Ma C, Gu L, An Y Abstract The present study investigated the expression of microRNA (miRNA or miR)-199a-5p in the peripheral blood of patients with primary hypertension, and examined its mechanism of action in vascular endothelial cell injury induced by hypertension. A total of 57 patients with primary hypertension, who were treated at the Affiliated Hospital of Qingdao University (Qingdao, China) between December 2014 and November 2015 were included in the present study. Peripheral blood was collected from all patients. The expression of miR-199a-5p ...

Authors: Zhang L, Luo Z, Wang H, Ren L, Yu F, Guan T, Fu S Abstract Palpation of the seventh cervical vertebra (C7) is important for the diagnosis and treatment of neck and chest conditions. However, the spinous process of C7 (C7-SP) displays an anatomical deviation among individuals. The present study aimed to clarify anatomic characteristics of C7-SP by using a three-dimensional (3D) computed tomographic (CT) reconstruction technique. A total of 245 subjects meeting the selection criteria were examined. After CT scanning, the images were reconstructed in 3D. All subjects were grouped according to their deviation ...

SalehAbstractInterfacial polymerization of trimesoyl chloride (TMC) and 1,3- phenylene diamine (MPD) was simultaneously combined with the in-situ formation of TiO2 from TiCl4 using urea. The titania-polyamide nanocomposite (TPN) was characterized by using X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, N2-physisorption analysis and a scanning electron microscope equipped with energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The TPN was evaluated as an adsorbent for the removal of dyes. It ...

Dual Energy Computed Tomography Scans of the Bowel: Benefits, Pitfalls, and Future Directions. Radiol Clin North Am. 2018 Sep;56(5):805-819 Authors: Yeh BM, Obmann MM, Westphalen AC, Ohliger MA, Yee J, Sun Y, Wang ZJ Abstract Current computed tomography bowel imaging is challenging given the variable distension, content, and location of the bowel, the different appearance of tumors within and adjacent to bowel, and peristaltic artifacts. Published data remain sparse. Derangements in enhancement may be highlighted, image artifacts reduced, and radiation dose from multiphase scans minimized. This m...
