Aqueous U(VI) reduction by hydrogen sulfide was investigated by batch experiments and speciation modeling; product analysis by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was also performed. The molar ratio of U(VI) reduced to sulfide consumed, and the TEM result suggested that the reaction stoichiometry could be best represented by UO2(2+) + HS- = UO2+ S* + H+.(More)
BACKGROUND Polyunsaturated omega-3 fatty acids may beneficially influence healing processes and patient outcomes. The aim of this research was to study the clinical efficacy of fish oil enriched total parenteral nutrition in elderly patients after colorectal cancer surgery. METHODS Fifty-seven elderly patients with colorectal cancer were enrolled in this(More)
Batch experiments were used to evaluate the reductive immobilization of hexavalent uranium (U(VI)) by synthesized, amorphous iron sulfide (FeS) in the anoxic environment. The tests were initiated by spiking 168.0 microM U(VI) to 0.18 g/L FeS suspensions under a CO2-free condition with pH varied from 5.99 to 10.17. The immobilization rate of U(VI) was(More)
Dissolved organic matter (DOM) can react with chlorine and yield undesirable disinfection byproducts (DBPs), e.g., trihalomethanes (THMs). Numerous studies have demonstrated that various DOM constituents have DBP formation potentials. We explored in this study the use of fluorescence excitation-emission (EEM) spectroscopy to identify THM precursors in 55(More)
Highly uniform GaAs/GaAsP coaxial nanowires were prepared via selective-area metal organic vapor phase epitaxy. Photoluminescence spectra from a single nanowire indicate that the obtained heterostructures can produce near-infrared (NIR) lasing under pulsed light excitation. The end facets of a single nanowire form a natural mirror surface to create an axial(More)
— With the opening of the power industry to competition , the power system structure is changing. According to these changes, power system operation, planning, and control need modifications. Under this deregulated power market, generation companies (GENCOs) can schedule their generators to maximize their own profit without accurately satisfying system(More)
In this paper, a method based on local feature bidirectional two-dimensional principal component analysis is proposed for facial expression recognition. First of all, a facial expressional image is divided into three separate sub-blocks, from the horizontal and vertical directions we utilize bidirectional 2DPCA to extract local feature of each sub-block. To(More)
—This paper presents an innovative method to evaluate the credibility of network connections based on neural network with back propagation (BP) network model and Levenberg-Marquardt (LM) optimization algorithm. In it, the second-level index values are taken as input and expected evaluation values as output, based on which, L test samples are used to test(More)
BACKGROUND Chinese medicine (CM) has its own diagnostic indicators that are used as evidence of change in a patient's condition. The majority of studies investigating efficacy of Chinese herbal medicine (CHM) have utilized biomedical diagnostic endpoints. For CM clinical diagnostic variables to be incorporated into clinical trial designs, there would need(More)
This study investigated the influences of pH, bicarbonate, and calcium on U(VI) removal and reduction by synthetic nanoscale zerovalent iron (nanoFe(0)) particles under anoxic conditions. The results showed that the rates of U(VI) removal and reduction by nanoFe(0) varied significantly with pH and concentrations of bicarbonate and/or calcium. For instance,(More)
