GOAL, SCOPE AND BACKGROUND Amu Darya river, one of the main water resources of Uzbekistan, shows a relevant longitudinal enrichment of soluble contents which strongly limits the human uses of its waters. Because of the low natural run-off processes, salts and pollutants are mainly driven to the river by the return waters used for washing and irrigating the(More)
This paper describes an industrial cloud robotics distributed application that was executed across a high-speed wide-area network. The application was implemented using ROS libraries and packages. The purpose of the application is to enable an industrial robot to perform surface blending. A Kinect sensor, a surface blending tool and a laser scanner are(More)
Recently, Photonic Slot Routing (PSR) has been proposed as a practical solution for achieving optically transparent communication in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) wide-area networks. PSR makes use of available and simple wavelength-non-sensitive optical devices to switch data ows at di erent wavelengths, but in the same time slot, as a single unit.(More)
Environmental palladium levels are increasing because of anthropogenic activities. The considerable mobility of the metal, due to solubilisation phenomena, and its known bioavailability may indicate interactions with higher organisms. The aim of the study was to determine the Pd uptake and distribution in the various organs of the higher plant Pisum sativum(More)
The nitrido-encapsulated heterometallic cluster anions [Co(10)Rh(N)2(CO)21](3-) (1), [Co(10)Rh2(N)2(CO)24](2-) (2), and [Co(11)Rh(N)2(CO)24](2-) (3) have been obtained by tailored redox-condensation reactions. These three anions are rare high-nuclearity mixed-metal clusters containing two interstitial nitrogen atoms. Their structures have been determined by(More)
BACKGROUND, AIM, AND SCOPE The widespread use of some platinum group elements as catalysts to minimize emission of pollutants from combustion engines produced a constantly growing increase of the concentration of these elements in the environment; their potential toxicological properties explain the increasing interest in routine easy monitoring. We have(More)
The substitution of one or two carbonyls by many different primary and secondary alkylamines and -diamines has been established for the first time in a homoleptic carbonyl cluster anion, the trigonal bipyramidal [Rh(5)(CO)(15)](-). Two derivatives, the bis-monosubstituted [[Rh(5)(CO)(14)]-(H(2)N(CH(2))(4)NH(2))-[Rh(5)(CO)(14)]](2-) dianion (1) and the(More)
Six metal carbido-carbonyl clusters have been isolated and recognized as members of a multivalent family based on the dioctahedral Rh(10)(C)(2) frame, with variable numbers of CO ligands, AuPPh(3) moieties, and anionic charge: [Rh(10)(C)(2)(CO)(x)(AuPPh(3))(y)](n-) (x = 18, 20; y = 4, 5, 6; n = 0, 1, 2). Anions [Rh(10)(C)(2)(CO)(18)(AuPPh(3))(4)](-)(More)
This work illustrates the feasibility of the implementation of innovative, efficient and low-cost solutions for fast-prototyping and customization of controlled mechanical and aeroservoelastic systems, applied to a controlled constant-speed wind-turbine as an example of the proposed methodologies. A physical problem is controlled by a controller process(More)
