(CNN) — Your social media could reveal a lot more about you than you think. Say, for example, whether you have a medical condition. In a new study, researchers were able to predict 21 types of medical conditions — ranging from pregnancy to skin disorders — by analyzing people’s Facebook profiles. Facebook status updates were “particularly effective at predicting diabetes and mental health conditions including anxiety, depression and psychoses,” the study found. The study will be published June 19 in PLOS One, a peer-reviewed open access scientific journal published since 2006 “Peop...

Pavlostathis, Shenglian Luo, Aijie WangAbstractBioelectrochemical systems (BESs) possess a great potential for simultaneous wastewater treatment and energy recovery. Rational construction of electrode materials could significantly improve the BESs performance. Three-dimensional macroporous electrode interface with high conductivity is highly desirable but challenging. In this work, we report a hierarchically nanostructured reduced graphene oxide nanosheets-pol...

In a series of studies, high-aluminum Al–30Zn alloys were doped with (2–20) wt.% Cu, 1 wt% Mn and small (∼100 ppm) Ti addition. The alloys’ microstructure has been studied using SEM/EBSD (scanning electron microscopy/electron backscatter diffraction) and LM (light microscopy) technique...

JainAbstractMagnesium hydride is one of the most suitable candidates for hydrogen storage due to completely reversible hydrogen storage reactions. Moreover magnesium is a widespread element on the earth. In this work the preparation of nanostructured magnesium hydride has been realized by mechanical milling under inert gas in presence of iron and its oxides. The work presents a complete comparison between Fe and its oxides as catalyst for sorption kinetics. Fe is a suitable catalyst for hydro...

TiO2 nanosol was prepared using tetraethyl orthosilicate (TEOS) by a sol-gel method. The synthesized BTMA and TiO2 nanosol were mixed to form an organic/inorganic hybrid and coated onto polyester (PET) fabrics. The coated P...
