Phase equilibria studies for CaO–SiO2-5wt.%MgO–Al2O3–TiO2 system in high Al2O3 content area with w(CaO)/w(SiO2) ratio of 1.50

Publication date: Available online 21 August 2019Source: Journal of Alloys and CompoundsAuthor(s): Lifeng Sun, Junjie Shi, Chengjun Liu, Maofa JiangAbstractWith the purpose of providing fundamental understanding of equilibrium phase relations with the addition of Al2O3 to CaO–SiO2-5wt%MgO–Al2O3–TiO2 system, the equilibria phase relations were experimental determined from 1300 °C to 1450 °C at constant w(CaO)/w(SiO2) ratio of 1.50 using high temperature equilibrium and quenching method followed by XRD (X-Ray diffraction) and SEM-EDX (Scanning Electron Microscope and Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence scope) analysis. The results showed that with the increase of Al2O3 content up to 30 wt%, the coexisting equilibria solid phases gradually changed from perovskite of CaO·TiO2 and melilite solid solution of (2CaO·Al2O3·SiO2, 2CaO·MgO·2SiO2)ss to spinel of MgO·Al2O3. Comparisons with the predictions by Factsage revealed that the simulated results were only well agreed when Al2O3 content lower than 20 wt%, while significant discrepancies existed with Al2O3 content higher than 30 wt%. Finally, the 1400 °C and 1450 °C isotherms, as well as the predicted primary phase boundary lines were projected on the pseudo-ternary phase diagram of CaO–SiO2-5wt.%MgO–Al2O3–TiO2 system within specific composition range.

Authors: Wei L, Osman S, Hatt M, El Naqa I Abstract Due to the recent developments of both hardware and software technologies, multimodality medical imaging techniques have been increasingly applied in clinical practice and research studies. Previously, the application of multimodality imaging in oncology has been mainly related to combining anatomical and functional imaging to improve diagnostic specificity and/or target definition, such as positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) and single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/CT. More recently, the fusion of various images, such as multi-...

Authors: Bogowicz M, Vuong D, Huellner MW, Pavic M, Andratschke N, Gabrys HS, Guckenberger M, Tanadini-Lang S Abstract Today, rapid technical and clinical developments result in an increasing number of treatment options for oncological diseases. Thus, decision support systems are needed to offer the right treatment to the right patient. Imaging biomarkers hold great promise in patient-individual treatment guidance. Routinely performed for diagnosis and staging, imaging datasets are excepted to hold more information than used in the clinical practice. Radiomics describes the extraction of a large number of meaningfu...

To circumvent the effect of P-gp, a nanocomposite material termed montmorillonite-surfactant hybrid particles was developed. The particles consisted of montmorillonite, the P-gp-inhibiting, nonionic surfactant, polysorbate 20, and the P-gp substrate,...

CONCLUSIONS: Pelvic fracture MRI should be performed primarily in elderly female patients without adequate trauma. In patients with adequate trauma, MRI is of low value, especially as MRI diagnostics are performed with delay, resulting in later surgery. PMID: 31533165 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Conclusions: Among IBS patients, the presence of comorbid Generalized Anxiety Disorder and/or Major Depressive Disorder is associated with lower socioeconomic status and lower average per capita income. These findings speak to a biopsychosocial model of illness, which should be considered by clinicians in the care of IBS patients. PMID: 31530048 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

In this study, we aim to assess plasma and serum calprotectin measurements as biomarkers of disease activity in paediatric and adult ulcerative colitis. Methods: Paediatric (5-18 years) and adult (>18 years) patients scheduled for colonoscopy due to suspected or confirmed ulcerative colitis were included prospectively. Stool and blood samples were collected at time of colonoscopy and patient symptom scores were recorded. At colonoscopy the Ulcerative Colitis Endoscopic Index of Severity was recorded. Histology was graded according to the Geboes score. Results: 84 patients where included; 30 paediatric and ...
