Publication date: Available online 9 December 2019Source: Journal of Membrane ScienceAuthor(s): Miao Tian, Yuan Liao, Rong WangAbstractIn recent years, novel superwetting membranes have gained popularity for oily wastewater treatments via synergy between surface chemistry and topography. However, the water fluxes of the superwetting membranes normally decrease rapidly due to pore clogging and surface fouling, especially when treating surfactant-stabilized oil-in-water emulsions. Herein, a facile strategy is proposed to develop a superwetting thin film nanofibrous composite (TFNC) membrane with remarkable antifouling and se...

Publication date: March 2020Source: Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Volume 57Author(s): Arti Anuragi, Dilip Singh Singh SisodiaAbstractElectroencephalogram (EEG) signals are well used to characterize the brain states and actions. In this paper, a novel empirical wavelet transform (EWT) based machine learning framework is proposed for the classification of alcoholic and normal subjects using EEG signals. In the framework, the adaptive filtering is used to extract Time–Frequency-domain features from Hilbert–Huang Transform (HHT). The boundary detection method is used for segmenting the Fourier spectrum ...

Herein, imidazolium polymer coated graphene oxides (AImGOs), bearing different length of polymer brushes, are synthesized via ATRP technique, and thus a very high weight percentage of imidazolium polymer brushes on GO (up to 89.5%) is acquir...

Galiote, Germano Tremiliosi-FilhoAbstractIn the present study, random superficial defects of the {110}-type were electrogenerated on an initially well-ordered Pt(111) single crystal electrode, by cycling the potential in the range from 0.05 to 1.30 V by 32 times in perchloric acid solution and in a scan rate of 0.05 V s−1, named as Pt(111)-32. After partial disordering of the electrode surface, it was modified by deposition of tin submonolayers in three di...

This study showed that platinum exhibits better dispersion on alumina sites than silica sites. This can be due to a strong interaction between platinum and alumina, leading to a higher dispersion of platinum species. Furthermore, the addition of MC enhanced the Pt dispersion over the mullite, leading to an improvement in the catalytic performance.
