In this work, a magnesium phytic acid/hydroxyapatite composite coating was successfully prepared on AZ31 magnesium alloy substrate by chemical conversion deposition technology with the aim of improving its corrosion resistance and bioactivity. The influence of hydroxyapatite (HA) content on the microstructure and corrosion resistance of the coatings was investigated. The results showed that with the increase of HA content in phytic acid solution, the cracks on the surface of the coatings gradually reduced, which subsequently improved the corrosion resistance of these coated magnesium alloy...

Asphaltenes constitute the heaviest fraction of the aromatic group in crude oil. Aggregation and precipitation of asphaltenes during petroleum processing costs the petroleum industry billions of dollars each year due to downtime and production inefficiencies. Asphaltene aggregation proceeds via a hierarchical self-assembly process that is well-described by the Yen-Mullins model. Nevertheless, the microscopic details of the emergent cluster morphologies and their relative stability under different processing conditions remain poorly understood...

We theoretically investigate the thermophoresis of nanocylinders in the free molecule regime, wherein the nonrigid-body effect is taken into account. The analytical formulas of the thermophoretic forces on cylinders suspended in both simple gases and binary gas mixtures are derived for the two limiting collision models, i.e., specular and diffuse scatterings, based on the gas kinetic theory. In the limit of the rigid-body collision, the expressions can be reduced to the theoretical results of Garcia-Ybarra and Rosner [AIChE J...

The present study prompted the second attempts to evaluate biochemical responses of filamentous algae under different physico-chemical variables in various water bodies in Turkey. These variables were investigated by use of multivariate approach in the years of 2013 (May and November) and 2014 (May and October). Studied ecoregions had the different geographic position, climate, land-use, and anthropogenic activities, could strongly affect physico-chemical variables of water bodies, which caused to change or regulate in algal biomass composition due to the different response of filamentous species...

In this Letter, we demonstrate efficient room temperature detection of ultra-broadband mid-wave-infrared (MWIR) light with an almost flat response over more than 1200 nm, exploiting an efficient nonlinear upconversion technique. Black-body radiation from a hot soldering iron rod is used as the IR test source. Placing a 20 mm long periodically poled lithium niobate crystal in a compact intra-cavity setup (>20  W CW pump at 1064 nm), MWIR wavelengths ranging from 3.6 to 4.85 μm are upconverted to near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths (820-870 nm)...

Metallic channel transistors have been proposed as the candidate for sub-10 nm technology node. However, the conductivity modulation in metallic channels can only be observed at low temperatures usually below 100 K. In this study, room-temperature field effect and modulation of the channel resistance was achieved in the metallic channel transistors, in which the oxygen-doped TiN ultrathin-body channels were prepared by the atomic layer delta doping and deposition (AL3D) with precise control of the channel thickness and electron concentration...

Previous studies showed that the survival rate of Wolbachia decreases under high temperature in incubators. It is also known that a high density of Wolbachia in the host body reduces the host emergence rate, while low densities fail to change reproduction rates. However, few studies have examined the density of Wolbachia in hosts in the field. Here, we focus on Wolbachia infection of the pale grass blue butterfly, Zizeeria maha (Lepidoptera: Lycaenidae), which is distributed throughout the Japanese islands...

Despite the nutritional and medicinal values of Allium hookeri, its unique flavor (onion or garlic taste and smell) coming from sulfur containing compounds limits its usage as functional food. For comparative study, A. hookeri roots were prepared under two different drying conditions, namely, low-temperature drying that minimizes the volatilization of sulfur components and hot-air drying that minimizes the garlic odor and spicy taste of A. hookeri. In GC/MS olfactory system, the odorous chemicals and organosulfur compounds such as diallyl trisulfide, dimethyl trisulfide, and dipropyl trisulfide were significantly decreased in hot-air drying compared to low-temperature drying...

We develop an extended ensemble method for constructing transferable, low-resolution coarse-grained (CG) models of polyethylene-oxide (PEO)-based ionomer chains with varying composition at multiple temperatures. In particular, we consider ionomer chains consisting of 4 isophthalate groups, which may be neutral or sulfonated, that are linked by 13 PEO repeat units. The CG models represent each isophthalate group with a single CG site and also explicitly represent the diffusing sodium counterions but do not explicitly represent the PEO backbone...

Previously, we have identified a novel E3 ubiquitin ligase, BNTR1, which plays a key role in heat stress response in Brassica napus. In this study, we accidentally found that BNTR1 can also improve thermal tolerance and reduce growth inhibition at 42°C in Escherichia coli, in a manner different from that in plant. We show that BNTR1 activates E. coli heat-shock response at low concentration in soluble form instead of in inclusion body, but BNTR1 is not functioning as a heat-shock protein (HSP) because deficient temperature-sensitive mutants of HSP genes display unconspicuous thermal tolerance in the presence of BNTR1...

Three different types of anion packing, i.e., hexagonal close packed (hcp), cubic close packed (ccp), and body centered cubic (bcc), are investigated experimentally and with ab initio calculations in the model system Na2B12H12. Solvent free and water assisted mechanical grinding provide polycrystalline samples for temperature-dependent synchrotron radiation X-ray powder diffraction and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. It is shown that among the common close packed lattices, the hcp anionic backbone creates very favorable conditions for three-dimensional ionic conduction pathways, comprised of O-O, T-T, and T-O-T (O for octahedral, T for tetrahedral) cation hops...

In diverse bacterial lineages, multi-enzyme assemblies have evolved that are central elements of RNA metabolism and RNA-mediated regulation. The aquatic, Gram-negative bacteria Caulobacter crescentus, which has been a model system for studying the bacterial cell cycle, has an RNA degradosome assembly that is formed by the endoribonuclease RNase E and includes the DEAD-box RNA helicase RhlB. Immunoprecipitations of extracts from cells expressing an epitope-tagged RNase E reveal that RhlE, another member of the DEAD-box helicase family, associates with the degradosome at temperatures below the optimum for growth...
