The AG not only incurs the formation of macropores by promoting the nucleation and growth of ice particles, but also strengthens the mechanical properties by increasing the crystallinity of PVA and the inter-molecular hydrogen bonds. The in vitro cell experiments imply that the obtained PVA hydrogels is cytocompatible and the chondrocyte...

Ansar Ali, Bula Singh, Bidyut SahaAbstractOxidation of isoamyl alcohol was carried out under pseudo 1st order reaction condition in aqueous medium by chromic acid. In addition to single micelle, mixed anionic-nonionic micelle (SDS-TX 100) was found to be effective catalyst. Promoters in presence of micelle catalyst showed almost million fold rate acceleration. The product was confirmed by IR and NMR study. UV and NMR analysis were carried out to establish the formation of mixed mice...

The thermodynamic consistency tests for the experimental data were checked by Van Ness point test and Wisniak’s L-W method. The experimental VLE data of t...

Two series of phosphorus-modified titanias were used: The iridium catalysts supported on phosphorus-doped rutile titania prepared by the hydrothermal method showed nearly 5 times higher activity for the reaction of 2-nitroaniline (1a) and benzyl alcohol (2a) to 2...

AbstractThe association between an adolescent's own behavior and that of his or her peers remains a key empirical finding in the study of delinquency, and this similarity is often explained in criminology by invoking processes of social influence and homophily. Adolescence is a period of rapid change for both individuals and their surroundings, however, and influence and homophily are often discussed without attending to their development over time. In the current study, I employ longitudinal social network models to estimate social influence and homophily related to alcohol and cigarette use and to determine whether there...

The increase of graphene content from 0.2 to 1.6 mg/g results in oscillating changes of permittivity and dielectric losses of the composit...

Conclusion: The majority of adult DDLT recipients in Korean MELD score-based allocation system have very high MELD scores, which is often associated with HRS. Pretransplant RRT appears to improve posttransplant survival outcomes. We thereby recommend that, if indicated, pretransplant RRT be performed while awaiting DDLT. PMID: 32051819 [PubMed]

This study demonstrates, for the first time, the protective effect of TBE against alcohol-induced acute and chronic liver injury in vivo and in vitro. Given the dietary nature of tartary buckwheat, pueraria, lycium barbarum, and hawthorn, the oral intake of TBE or liquor contained TBE, e.g., Maopu Tartary buckwheat liquor, compared with pure liquor consumption alone, may have the potential to alleviate alcoholic-induced liver injuries.

This study revealed that ester bonds are responsible for the polymerization of soybean oil during frying and heating at 175 °C. The ester value of soybean oil increased during frying up to day 3 of the experiment and slightly decreased on day 4 of the experiment indicating that esterification and hydrolysis concomitantly occurred. The 13C NMR spectra showed further evidence of the formation of ester bonds. This study also examined unidentified chemical bonds in the polymer products, other than ester bonds, with NMR spectroscopy. No NMR signals indicating ether bonds were observed. The NMR study after the reaction of ox...
