In this study, two novel benzimidazolium salts consisting propane sulfonate order were integrated in high yields as N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) precursors.The silver-NHC buildings were set up by responding 1-(2,2-dimethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium and 1-(2,2-diethoxyethyl)- 3-(propyl-3-sulfonate)benzimidazolium with silver oxide on average state. Gold-NHC edifices were acquired by means of transmetallation of their silver precursors with [AuCl{S(CH3)2}]. The structures of all mixes were completely portrayed by spectroscopic techniques (1H-NMR, 13C{1H} NMR , IR and elemental and further analyzed by DFT/...

Publication date: 1 June 2020Source: Chemical Engineering Journal, Volume 389Author(s): Xiaojing Wang, Peng Wang, Xiaomeng Liu, Limin Hu, Qiao Wang, Peng Xu, Guangshan ZhangAbstractPerfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) has been used as a dispersant in the fabrication of fluoropolymers and is classified as a “likely carcinogen” by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. In this work, the enhanced degradation of PFOA in water by dielectric barrier discharge (DBD) plasma in a coaxial cylindrical structure with the assistance of peroxymonosulfate (PMS) was explored. The effects of PMS dosage, input voltage and s...

Narayana MurthyAbstractIntroductionGlobally, cervical cancer is the 4th most common cancer and is one of the leading cancers causing death in India. Cervical cancer is one of those cancers which can be easily prevented by screening women who are aged above 30 years and by vaccinating young girls against HPV. Lack of awareness about cervical cancer makes early detection and timely screening difficult. Awareness about cervical cancer among people will help us to decide on an appropria...

ConclusionsOur findings support measurement invariance of the EORTC QLQ-C30 in a large sample of patients with hematological malignancies. The results showed that the number of non-invariant items was negligible, suggesting that this questionnaire is a valid and robust measurement tool in patients with hematological malignancies, also for comparisons across groups and time.

Publication date: Available online 17 February 2020Source: Pathology - Research and PracticeAuthor(s): Hongying Wang, Weiping TianAbstractMicroRNAs (miRNAs) have been proven to be critical regulators of cancer development. To date, many of them are still in urgent need of characterisation, and role of miR-595 in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) remains unknown. To better understand the mechanism of miR-595 in HCC development, a series of experiments were carried out to explore the effects of miR-595 on malignant behaviour in HCC. First, we found that miR-595 was downregulated in HCC tissues and cells and tightly associated w...
