Herein, we prepare a conductive polypyrrole-graphene oxide/polypyrrole-camphorsulfonic acid bilayer composite coating (PPY-GO/PPY-CSA) on 304 stainless steel bipolar plate by electrodeposition method. The electrochemical tests are conducted in ...

In this study, a novel rotating bipolar disc electrolytic (RBDE) reactor was designed for the treatment of textile wastewater and the performance was evaluated. The turbulence created in the system and enhanced mass transport (coagulants/ions) improved the overall performance of electrolytic cell during rotation. The effect of various parameters like current density, electrical conductivity, pH, rotation speed, and pollutant concentration on the performance of the RBDE reactor was examined in terms of COD, colour and TSS removal. Complete decolorization was obtained in 2 min and 6 min of electrolysis time in ...

DISCUSSION: The results showed a potential association between substance dependence and bipolarity. Mood dysregulation appears to be the link between the two. The gradient of bipolarity detected by BSDS screener suggests a continuum model between substance use and bipolar disorder. However, this is a clinic based study and only male patients have been taken for study. PMID: 31731145 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

What if you could rob a word like “suicide” of some of its isolating effect and control?  Words are serious business. What they represent – true or not – are real problems that need real solutions. Taking control of the power of words is one strategy that places the focus wher...
