Wentao Zhao, Qian Sui, Xia Huang
Elimination of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from coke wastewater is crucial to minimize the PAHs contamination levels to the environment. Knowledge about the characteristics of PAHs removal in biological treatment processes, especially hybrid systems, for real coke wastewater treatment has been very scarce. In this study, a lab-scale hybrid anaerobic-anoxic-oxic (A1 /A2 /O) process was used to treat highly toxic coke wastewater and operated more than 600 d at total hydraulic retention time (HRT) of 50 h, 40 h, 30 h, 20 h and internal mixed liquor recirculation ratio (R) of 3, 6, 9...

A Jain, S K Jain
Cancer remains a deadly disease for effective treatment. Although anomalous tumor microenvironment is now widely exploited for targeted chemotherapy, safe and efficacious drug delivery to tumor cells is not still warranted. Liposomes are promising biodegradable and biocompatible nanocarriers having potential amenability for surface and internal modifications, and extraordinary capability to carry both hydrophilic as well as hydrophobhic drugs. Meticulous fabrication of liposomes with tumor selective ligand(s) and PEGylation reduces immunogenicity and increase target-specificity...

REVIEW
Valentina Stazi, Maria Concetta Tomei
Recent concerns over public health, environmental protection, and resource recovery have induced to look at domestic wastewater more as a resource than as a waste. Anaerobic treatment, owing to attractive advantages of energy saving, biogas recovery and lower sludge production, has been suggested as an alternative technology to the traditional practice of aerobic wastewater treatment, which is energy intensive, produces high excess of sludge, and fails to recover the potential resources available in wastewater...

F Paquet, J Harrison
Internal doses are calculated using biokinetic and dosimetric models. These models describe the behaviour of the radionuclides after ingestion, inhalation, and absorption to the blood, and the absorption of the energy resulting from their nuclear transformations. The International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) develops such models and applies them to provide dose coefficients and bioassay functions for the calculation of equivalent or effective dose from knowledge of intakes and/or measurements of activity in bioassay samples...

Technetium-99m methoxy isobutyl isonitrile (99m Tc-MIBI; sestamibi) single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT)/computed tomography (CT) performed for preoperative localization of parathyroid adenomas or for other indications can reveal incidentalomas. Interpretation of such findings can be challenging, particularly when thyroid or other endocrine tumors are also present. Preoperative staging of a 59-year-old female patient with medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) showing moderate hypermetabolism on 18 F-fluorodeoxyglucose positron emission tomography/CT also detected a slightly hypermetabolic pulmonary nodule (standardized uptake value normalized by body weight max = 2...

Grignard reagents are among the most fundamental reagents in organic synthesis, yet studies have hitherto failed to fully explain the selectivity and kinetics of Grignard reagent formation (GRF). The present study provides new insights into the intermediates and pathways of GRF using density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Potential energy surfaces of RX dissociation along different directions reveal the origin of configuration retention of alkenyl and aromatic halides. Radical intermediates participate solely in the dissociation stage, and depend on the geometry of the reactant halide...
