Environmental-Friendly and Facile Synthesis of Co3O4 Nanowires and Their Promising Application with Graphene in Lithium-Ion Batteries

In this work, we developed an eco-friendly strategy for preparing Co3O4 nanowires. The process consisted of two steps: controllable synthesis of metal cobalt nanowires followed by a facile air-oxidization step. The 1D nanowire structure with a high aspect ratio was easily achieved via a magnetic-field-assisted self-assembly of cobalt ion complexes during reduction. After ...

Charmed baryon weak decays with SU(3) flavor symmetry

We study the semileptonic and non-leptonic charmed baryon decays with SU(3) flavor symmetry, where the charmed baryons can be B c = (Ξ c 0 , Ξ c + , Λ c + ), B c ′ = (Σ c (++,+,0) , Ξ c ′ (+,0) , Ω c 0 ), B cc = (Ξ cc + + , Ξ cc + , Ω c + ) or B cc = Ω ccc + + . With B n (′) denoted as the baryon octet (decuplet), we find that the B c → B n ′ ℓ + ν ℓ decays are forbidden, while the ...

Association between elevated central venous pressure and outcomes in critically ill patients

Background Some prior studies have shown that elevated mean central venous pressure in certain patient populations and disease processes may lead to poor prognosis. However, these studies failed to generalize the concept of elevated central venous pressure (ECVP) load to all patients in critical care settings because of the limited cases and exclusive cohorts. The aim of the study ...

Preparation of Palladium(II) Ion-Imprinted Polymeric Nanospheres and Its Removal of Palladium(II) from Aqueous Solution

Three kinds of functional monomers, 4-vinylpridine(4-VP), 2-(allylthio)nicotinic acid(ANA), and 2-Acetamidoacrylic acid(AAA), were used to synthetize palladium(II) ion-imprinted polymeric nanospheres (Pd(II) IIPs) via precipitation-polymerization method in order to study the effects of different functional monomers on the adsorption properties of ion-imprinted materials. The ...

A novel architecture for parallel multi-view HEVC decoder on mobile device

The multi-view HEVC (MV-HEVC) extension was finalized in July of 2014 by the Moving Picture Experts Group and the Video Coding Experts Group. Recently, multi-view videos based on stereo representations are becoming widely popular. Also, a variety of multimedia contents are now available for mobile devices. A real-time multi-view video decoder is therefore needed. In mobile devices, ...

An efficient depth map preprocessing method based on structure-aided domain transform smoothing for 3D view generation

Depth image-based rendering (DIBR), which is used to render virtual views with a color image and the corresponding depth map, is one of the key techniques in the 2D to 3D conversion process. Due to the absence of knowledge about the 3D structure of a scene and its corresponding texture, DIBR in the 2D to 3D conversion process, inevitably leads to holes in the resulting 3D image as ...

Identification and validation of a novel major QTL for harvest index in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Background Harvest index (HI) in rice is defined as the ratio of grain yield (GY) to biomass (BM). Although it has been demonstrated that HI is significantly related to yield and is considered as one of the most important traits in high-yielding rice breeding, HI-based high-yielding rice breeding is difficult due to its polygenic nature and insufficient knowledge on the genetic ...

Low Power Consumption Substrate-Emitting DFB Quantum Cascade Lasers

In the present work, an ultra-low power consumption substrate-emitting distributed feedback (DFB) quantum cascade laser (QCL) was developed. The continuous-wave (CW) threshold power dissipation is reduced to 0.43 W at 25 °C by shortening the cavity length to 0.5 mm and depositing high-reflectivity (HR) coating on both facets. As far as we know, this is the recorded threshold power ...

Differences in perceived causes of childhood obesity between migrant and local communities in China: A qualitative study

In developing countries, obesity traditionally affectsmore affluent children, butis spreading to a wider social group. Understanding the perceivedcontributors can provide valuable insights to plan preventive interventions. We exploreddifferences in the perceived causes of childhood obesity between local and migrant communities in a major Chinese city. We conducted 20 focus groups ...

An Estimation Method of Pore Structure and Mineral Moduli Based on Kuster-Toksöz (KT) Model and Biot’s Coefficient

Pore structure and mineral matrix elastic moduli are indispensable in rock physics models. We propose an estimation method of pore structure and mineral moduli based on Kuster-Toksöz model and Biot’s coefficient. In this technique, pore aspect ratios of five different scales from 100 to 10−4 are considered, Biot’s coefficient is used to determine bounds of mineral moduli, and an ...

Gene Regulatory Network Inferences Using a Maximum-Relevance and Maximum-Significance Strategy

Recovering gene regulatory networks from expression data is a challenging problem in systems biology that provides valuable information on the regulatory mechanisms of cells. A number of algorithms based on computational models are currently used to recover network topology. However, most of these algorithms have limitations. For example, many models tend to be complicated because ...

Comparative study on the in vitro effects of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and seaweed alginates on human gut microbiota

Alginates pertain to organic polysaccharides that have been extensively used in food- and medicine-related industries. The present study obtained alginates from an alginate overproducing Pseudomonas aeruginosa PAO1 mutant by screening transposon mutagenesis libraries. The interaction between bacterial and seaweed alginates and gut microbiota were further studied by using an in ...

On Some Properties of a Class of Fractional Stochastic Heat Equations

We consider nonlinear parabolic stochastic equations of the form \(\partial _t u=\mathcal {L}u + \lambda \sigma (u)\dot{\xi }\) on the ball \(B(0,\,R)\), where \(\dot{\xi }\) denotes some Gaussian noise and \(\sigma \) is Lipschitz continuous. Here \(\mathcal {L}\) corresponds to a symmetric \(\alpha \)-stable process killed upon exiting B(0, R). We will consider two types of ...

Tetrandrine inhibits migration and invasion of human renal cell carcinoma by regulating Akt/NF-κB/MMP-9 signaling

Renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is known as one of the most lethal malignancies in the urological system because of its high incidence of metastasis. Tetrandrine (Tet), a traditional Chinese herbal medicine, exerts a potent anti-cancer effect in a variety of cancer cells. However, the anti-metastatic effect of Tet and its possible mechanism in RCC is still unclear. The present study ...

An activity-integrated strategy of the identification, screening and determination of potential neuraminidase inhibitors from Radix Scutellariae

Small molecules isolated from herbal medicines (HMs) were identified as the potential neuraminidase inhibitors which are effective in influenza prevention and treatment. Unfortunately, current available screen methods of small molecules isolated from HMs are inefficient and insensitive. Here a novel Ultra Performance Liquid Chromatography coupled with diode-array detectors and ...
