This phenomenon also has a significant impact on the etiology of prostate cancer (PCa). Using several in vitro models, the roles of vitamin D3 on energy metabolism and its implication in primary, early ...

In light of its detrimental environmental effects, ensuring its easy and ultrasensitive detection is highly essential. In this paper, we demonstrate facile and label free electrochemical detection of atrazine, using electrospun manganese oxide nanofibers (MNF). Here, we report an anti-atrazine-antibody b...

The BUC-17 powders were further characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Zeta potential analysis. The BUC-17 ultrafine powder exhibited excellent adsorption performance toward Cr(VI) from si...

The glass-ceramics are tested by X-ray diffraction (XRD) techniques, and NaNbO3 as major phase led a high permittivity. A microstructure with nanoscale grains enclosed by glass phase is observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). With the increase of content of K2O, a relaxed glass network structure is obtained, and more kinds of phase are formed. Permittivity com...
