In this study, for the rapid preparation of PAC from pulverized coal, response surface methodology (RSM) based on central composite design (CCD) was used to develop the second order quadratic models of SO2 adsorption capacity and burn-off. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) was used to determine the effective parameters of the two models, and to explain the accuracy and fitness of them. In addition, the 3D response surface plots illustrated the influencing rules of the variables and their interactions. Further, multi-objective optimization was performed to maximize SO2 adsorption capacity and minimize burn-off using the desirabi...

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - A lead-paint poisoning plaintiff on Jan. 9 moved jointly with the city of New Haven in Connecticut state court seeking an extension of time for the plaintiff to reply to the city's motion to dismiss in order to review the case and explore the possibility of a settlement (Nichelle Hobby, et al. v. City of New Haven, No. NHH-CV-19-5003875-S, Conn. Super., New Haven Jud. Dist.).

Prof Sandy Harrison tells the Liberal on his Facebook page that his misuse of her study should not go unchallengedA leading UK climate scientist has used the Facebook page of the MP Craig Kelly to correct his “blatant misrepresentation” of a study she co-authored on a 70,000-year history of bushfires in Australia.Kelly, a serial denier of climate change, has been using the 2011 study to claim rising CO2 in the atmosphere can ’t be linked to Australia’s bushfire crisis, because the study had shown total area being burned was going down while CO2 is rising.Continue reading...

DankovcevAbstractPreliminary mechanical activation of titanium, carbon black, high speed steel (HSS) and high chromium cast iron (HCCI) powder mixtures were held. These powders were used for self-propagating high temperature synthesis in wave combustion mode. It was shown, that the preliminary MA makes possible to initiate SHS in reaction mixtures with a HSS binder content up to 60 vol%. However, the MA effect is sufficiently lower, than expected, especiall...

Dhakate, Ajay DharAbstractThe current study reports a single-step synthesis of thermoelectric material p-type chromium di-silicide (CrSi2), using reaction sintering of their elemental powders employing spark plasma assisted sintering at optimized processing parameters. This process of single-step synthesis takes only a few minutes in contrast to the conventional processes reported earlier, which take several hours and involve multi-step processing, includ...

The developed rare-earth-based complexes showed the ability to catalyze the coupling of CO2 and industrially attractive epoxides such as epichlorohydrin and propylene oxide into cyclic carbonates under ambient c...

Chromic acid is an industrial metal acid widely used for electroplating in alloy and dye production. It can cause serious skin burn and, if absorbed, may lead to acute chromium poisoning. Such poisoning cases appear rarely in the literature [ 1 ]. We n...

Conclusion and Perspectives Collectively, previous studies showed that numerous types of TCMs protect against AKI via different mechanisms of action, including inhibiting inflammation, cell apoptosis, necroptosis, ferroptosis, and restraining oxidative stress etc. These data support the potential application of these TCMs as novel therapeutic agents in treating patients with AKI. Although some TCMs have entered preclinical trials, it is essential to initiate pre-clinical pharmacologic and toxicologic trials and clinical trials to evaluate the efficacy and safety of TCMs usage. Moreover, considering that some TCMs are dele...

Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide (MEKP) is a highly toxic clear liquid used as a solvent. It is a strong oxidizing agent and a corrosive. Acute and chronic toxicity can occur as an occupational hazard. Ingestion is associated with corrosive burns leading to stricture formation, inhalational pneumonitis, acidosis, liver failure and renal failure. In this paper we present a case of a young patient who intentionally ingested MEKP. The patient developed multiple complications including proximal intestinal obstruction, acidosis and acute kidney injury. He was managed conservatively and recovered after a prolonged hospital stay. He ...
