Perfluorinated acids (PFAs) have been recognized as emerging environmental pollutants because of their widespread occurrences, persistence, and bioaccumulative and toxicological effects. PFAs have been detected in aquatic environment and biota in China, but the occurrences of these chemicals have not been reported in solid matrices in China. In the present(More)
Perfluoroalkyl surfactants (PASs) have attracted increasing concerns in recent years due to their global distribution, persistence, bioaccumulation and potential toxicity. Since sludge was a significant source of PASs to environment, the sorption of short (C2-C6) and long-chain (C7-C15) PASs on different sewage sludge was investigated in this study. The(More)
Laboratory-scale batch experiments were conducted to investigate the sorption and degradation of bisphenol A (BPA) at microg/L range in an aerobic activated sludge system. The sorption isotherms and thermodynamics indicated that the sorption of BPA on sludge was mainly a physical process in which partitioning played a dominating role. The values of sorption(More)
NO reacts spontaneously with superoxide to produce the potent oxidant peroxynitrite. Studies were designed to examine the role of NO-derived oxidants and peroxynitrite on the regulation of Na(+),K(+)-ATPase activity by angiotensin II (ANG II) freshly isolated rat proximal tubules. At picomolar concentrations ANG II stimulates Na(+),K(+)-ATPase activity, but(More)
Lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced renal oxidant injury and the role of nitric oxide (NO) were evaluated using the inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) inhibitor L-iminoethyl-lysine (L-NIL). One group of male rats received LPS (Salmonella minnesota; 2 mg/kg, i.v.). A second group received LPS plus L-NIL (3 mg/kg, i.p.). A third group received saline i.v. At(More)
Genetic diversity, and thus the adaptive potential of invasive populations, is largely based on three factors: patterns of genetic diversity in the species’ native range, the number and location of introductions and the number of founding individuals per introduction. Specifically, reductions in genetic diversity (‘founder effects’) should be stronger for(More)
Raw and treated landfill leachate samples were collected from 5 municipal landfill sites in China to measure the concentrations and contamination profile of perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) in leachate during different steps of treatment. The total concentration of PFAAs (∑PFAAs) ranged from 7280 to 292,000 ng L(-1) in raw leachate and from 98.4 to 282,000 ng(More)
Globally distributed and highly stable, perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) has prompted much concern regarding its accumulation in the natural environment and its threats to ecosystems. Therefore, it is desirable to develop an effective treatment against PFOA pollution. In this study, a photo-reduction method is developed and evaluated for the decomposition of(More)
An efficient approach based on differential flatness and spline theory for the aircraft trajectory generation in the target area is proposed. It is well known that the traditional feedback control approach frequently fails for a large class of nonlinear mechanical systems with constraints. The aircraft dynamics system is a nonlinear system restrained by the(More)
A new method based on discrete event It is widely used in the field of language and system is proposed for fault diagnosis of a certain automata theory, supervisory control, Petri net theory, kind of circuit, such as a relay control circuit. The Markov chains and queuing theory, discrete-event original algorithm to obtain a minimal test set is simulation,(More)
