The resistance to thermal quenching is an essential factor in evaluating the performance of luminescent materials for application in white light emitting diodes (WLEDs). In this work, we studied the site occupancy preference and thermal quenching of luminescence in β-Ca2P2O7:Bi(2+) red phosphor at low (10-300 K) and high temperatures (303-573 K). In β-Ca2P2O7, the host lattice has four different calcium sites, at which Bi(2+)dopant can be located. After comparing the change of bond energy when the Bi(2+) ions are incorporated into the four calcium sites, we found out that Bi(2+) would preferentially occupy the smaller energy variation sites Ci(2) and Ci(1) in this compound, which can be assigned to Bi(2) and Bi(1), respectively...

For the first time, we have successfully synthesized rare-earth doped Gd2(MoO4)3: RE(3+) (RE=Eu, Tb) nanoplates by solvothermal method. The morphology of Gd2(MoO4)3 can be manipulated by changing the reaction times and reaction temperatures. The composition and surface morphology have been investigated by X-ray powder diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM), respectively. Under the excitation of UV, Photoluminescence (PL) has been used to explore the excellent luminescence properties of the synthesized nanophosphors...

The aim of this study was to ascertain the effect of Zn-doping of dental adhesives and mechanical load cycling on the micromorphology of the resin-dentin interdiffusion zone (of sound and caries affected dentin). The investigation considered two different Zn-doped adhesive approaches and evaluated the interface using a doubled dye fluorescent technique and a calcium chelator fluorophore under a confocal laser scanning microscopy. Sound and carious dentin-resin interfaces of unloaded specimens were deficiently resin-hybridized, in general...

Nanostructured phosphorus-carbon composites are promising materials for Li-ion and Na-ion battery anodes. A hierarchical phosphorus hybrid, SiC@graphene@P, has been synthesized by chemical vapor deposition of phosphorous on the surfaces of barbed nanowires, where the barbs are vertically grown graphene nanosheets and the cores are SiC nanowires. A temperature gradient vaporization-condensation method has been used to remove the unhybridized phosphorous particles formed by homogeneous nucleation. The vertically grown barb shaped graphene nanosheets and high concentration of edge carbon atoms induced a fibrous red phosphorus (f-RP) growth with its {001} planes in parallel to {002} planes of nanographene sheets and led to a strong interpenetrated interface interaction between phosphorous and the surfaces of graphene nanosheets...

Aerobic anoxygenic phototrophic (AAP) bacteria are microorganisms that can harvest light energy using bacteriochlorophyll a to supplement their predominantly organotrophic metabolism. Growth enhancement by light has repeatedly been demonstrated in laboratory experiments with AAP isolates. However, the ecological advantage of light utilization is unclear, as it has never been proven in the natural environment. Here, we conducted manipulation experiments in the NW Mediterranean and found that AAP bacteria display high growth rates which are controlled to a large extent by intense grazing pressure and phosphorous availability...

We report for the first time, on the growth of homogeneous radial p-n junction in ZnO core-shell configuration with a p-doped ZnO nanoshell structure grown around a high quality un-intentionally n-doped ZnO nanorods using sonochemistry. The simultaneous decomposition of Phosphorous (P), Zinc (Zn) and Oxygen (O) from their respective precursors during sonication allows for the successful incorporation of P atoms in to the ZnO lattice. The as formed p-n junction shows a rectifying current - voltage characteristic consistent with a p-n junction with a threshold voltage of 1...

Sirtuin1 (SIRT1) deacetylase delays and improves many obesity-related diseases, including non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and diabetes, and has received great attention as a drug target. SIRT1 function is aberrantly low in obesity, so understanding the underlying mechanisms is important for drug development. Here, we show that obesity-linked phosphorylation of SIRT1 inhibits its function and promotes pathological symptoms of NAFLD. In proteomic analysis, Ser-164 was identified as a major serine phosphorylation site in SIRT1 in obese, but not lean, mice, and this phosphorylation was catalyzed by casein kinase-2 (CK2), the levels of which were dramatically elevated in obesity...

The axially chiral arylquinazolinone acts as a privileged structural scaffold, which is present in a large number of natural products and biologically active compounds as well as in chiral ligands. However, a direct catalytic enantioselective approach to access optically pure arylquinazolinones has been underexplored. Here we show a general and efficient approach to access enantiomerically pure arylquinazolinones in one-pot fashion catalysed by chiral phosphoric acids. A variety of axially chiral arylquinazolinones were obtained in high yields with good to excellent enantioselectivities under mild condition...

BACKGROUND: Myocardial infarction (MI) is a major disease burden. Wild-type p53-induced phosphatase 1 (Wip1) has been studied extensively in the context of cancer and the regulation of different types of stem cells, but the role of Wip1 in cardiac adaptation to MI is unknown. We investigated the significance of Wip1 in a mouse model of MI. METHODS: The study began in June 2014 and was completed in July 2016. We compared Wip1-knockout (Wip1-KO) mice and wild-type (WT) mice to determine changes in cardiac function and survival in response to MI...

Herein we describe the synthesis and luminescence of nanosized (Lu1-y-xGdx)2O2S:Tby and (Lu1-y-xGdx)2O3:Tby phosphors with y = 0.1 mol% Tb(3+) and y = 2 mol% Tb(3+) and x ranging between 0 and 1. The concentration of Gd(3+) (x) was varied in steps of 0.1 (molar ratio Gd(3+)). The samples at 0.1 < x < 0.7 contained a mixture of (Lu1-xGdx)2O3:Tb(3+) and (Lu1-xGdx)2O2S:Tb(3+), while the samples at x = 0 contained only Lu2O3:Tb(3+). At 0.1 < x < 0.7 Lu2O2S:Tb(3+) and Gd2O2S:Tb(3+) did not form a solid solution, but rather crystallised into two slightly different hexagonal structures...

Carbon nanotubes (CNTs) are employed as nanoscale reaction vessels for the asymmetric oxa-Michael addition of 2'-hydroxychalcones. A systematic comparison of the catalytic activities of chiral phosphoric acid treated ferrite nanoparticles (chiral ferrites) has been studied for the synthesis of flavanones. Higher reactivity and selectivity with switching of enantiomers were observed when these chiral ferrites are inside the CNT channel.

An aerobic granular sludge system has been started-up and operated at 7°C temperature using cold-adapted activated sludge as inoculum. The system could form granular biomass due to batch operation allowing for just 5-3min of biomass sedimentation. Scanning electron microscopy showed that fungi helped in the granular biomass formation in the early stages of the granule formation. The removal performance of the system was of 92-95% in BOD5, 75-80% in COD, 70-76% in total nitrogen and 50-60% in total phosphorous...

Titanium phosphate nanoparticles, TPNP, consisting of a NaTi2(PO4)3 core and a shell of hydrogen phosphate and dihydrogen phosphate of titanium, undergo fast hydrolysis in water releasing phosphoric acid. This reaction is inhibited in the presence of metallic ions like Cd(2+) or Hg(2+), which are able to replace the protons of the shell acid phosphates. The amount of the adsorbed metallic cations could be regulated using counterions of different basicity. The resulting nanoparticles also incorporate NH2(CH2)7CH3 (N-octylamine) at room temperature forming N-octylammonium/phosphate ion pairs, but it was found that at higher cation concentration inside the nanoparticle, a lower amount of amine was adsorbed...
