Unexpected Synthesis of Segmented Poly(hydroxyurea−urethane)s from Dicyclic Carbonates and Diamines by Organocatalysis
A complete study of the effect of different organocatalysts on the step-growth polyaddition of a five-membered dicyclic carbonate, namely diglycerol dicarbonate, with a poly(ethylene glycol)-based diamine in bulk at 120 ...
Testing Wastewater Treatment Plant Effluent Effects on Microbial and Detritivore Performance: a Combined Field and Laboratory Experiment
The amount of pollutants and nutrients entering rivers via point sources is increasing along with human population and activity. Although wastewater treatment plants (WWTPs) greatly reduce pollutant loads into the environment, ...
Light-responsive Materials for Microfluidic Applications
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-03-07)
While the microfluidic device itself may be small, often the equipment required to control fluidics in thechip unit is large e.g. pumps, valves and mixing units, which can severely limit practical use and functionalscalability. ...
Photoswitchable Layer-by-layer Coatings Based on Photochromic Polynorbornenes Bearing Spiropyran Side Groups
(American Chemical Society, 2018-04-10)
Micro-capillaries, capable of light-regulated binding and qualitative detection of divalent metal ions in continuous flow, have been realised through functionalisation with spiropyran photochromic brush-type coatings. Upon ...
Embodied Coordination and Psychotherapeutic Outcome: Beyond Direct Mappings
(Frontiers Media, 2018-06-23)
Data on Links Between Structural and Functional Prokaryotic Diversity in Long-Term Sewage Sludge Amended Soil
The application of sewage sludge to agricultural soil induces co-exposure of prokaryotic populations to antibiotics and heavy metals, thus exerting a selection pressure that may lead to the development of antibiotic ...
Deterministic Evolutionary Trajectories Influence Primary Tumor Growth: TRACERx Renal
(Cell Press, 2018-04-19)
The evolutionary features of clear-cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) have not been systematically studied to date. We analyzed 1,206 primary tumor regions from 101 patients recruited into the multi-center prospective study, ...
Ubiquitylation Dynamics of the Clock Cell Proteome and TIMELESS During a Circadian Cycle
(Cell Press, 2018-05-22)
Circadian clocks have evolved as time-measuring molecular devices to help organisms adapt their physiology to daily changes in light and temperature. Transcriptional oscillations account for a large fraction of rhythmic ...
Preparation and Characterization of Resveratrol Loaded Pectin/Alginate Blend Gastro-Resistant Microparticles
Background: The use of resveratrol as a dietary supplement is limited because it is easily oxidized and, after oral ingestion, it is metabolized into enterocytes and hepatocytes. Thus, new formulations are needed in order ...
An Original Tribometer to Analyze the Behavior of Abrasive Grains in the Grinding Process
Manufacturing of grinding wheels is continuously adapting to new industrial requirements. New abrasives and new wheel configurations, together with wheel wear control allow for grinding process optimization. However, the ...
