Making crime a sustainable development issue: from 'drugs and thugs' to 'peaceful and inclusive societies' - Blaustein J, Chodor T, Pino NW.

Development has long featured on the United Nations (UN) crime policy agenda; however, crime was only officially recognized by the international community as a global development priority following the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals in 2015....

AbstractBurns and chronic wounds are especially challenging wounds to heal. In efforts to heal these wounds, physicians often use autologous skin grafts to help restore mechanical and barrier functionality to the wound area. These grafts are, by nature, limited in availability. In an effort to provide an alternative, we have developed an electrospun wound dressing designed to incorporate into the wound with the option to deliver a cellular payload. Here, a blend of poly(glycolic acid) and poly(ethylene glycol) was electrospun as part of a custom fabrication method that incorporated 3D printed poly(vinyl alcohol) sacrificia...

In this paper, we formulate foam stabilizer by combining a polymer, two different surfactants, and six different nanoparticles. Static foam stability tests are conducted using alpha olefin sulfonate (AOS) and cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as anionic and cationic surfactants, respectively, pol...

PtNi-C catalyst was synthesized by combining Pt nanoparticles with Ni-BTC after annealing in the tube furnace and the unstable Ni species can be easily leached out in nitric acid, and the stable PtNi nanoparticles trapped in the graphite carbon layer were obtained. The ...

Ibrahim, Eric GuibalAbstractA simple method has been designed for preparing a new material based on the interactions of cellulose acetate (mixed with an alkaline urea solution, CA/urea), cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) with tetraethyl orthosilicate in alcohol (CTAB/TEOS). In a second step, the material is loaded with molybdate. The nano-objects produced by this procedure are characterized as microporous hollow spheres with a morpholog...
