Early in infection, human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) generally uses the CCR5 chemokine receptor (along with CD4) for cellular entry. In many HIV-1-infected individuals, viral genotypic changes arise that allow the virus to use CXCR4 (either in addition to CCR5 or alone) as an entry coreceptor. This switch has been associated with an acceleration(More)
A mechanically robust and ion-conductive polymeric coating containing two polymers, polyethylene glycol tert-octylphenyl ether and poly(allyl amine), with four tailored functional groups is developed for graphite and graphite-Si composite anodes. The coating, acting as an artificial solid electrolyte interphase, leads to remarkable enhancement in capacity(More)
Humic acids were used to simulate natural organic compounds in water for the investigation of DMP oxidation by three different AOPs (advanced oxidation processes) of UV-H2O2, O3 and UV-O3. The results showed that pseudo-first-order reaction equation could describe the oxidation of DMP by UV-H2O2 perfectly, which was strongly affected humic acids in water.(More)
Batch experiments using lake sediment mud liquors spiked with E2 were performed under aerobic and anaerobic conditions. The catabolic mechanisms of E2 were also induced. The results indicate that under aerobic condition, 99% of E2 can be removed from aqueous phase after as short as 24 h. Concentration of estrone (E1) firstly increase and then decrease(More)
In the present investigation the explosion characteristics of 30% H2/70% CH4-blended fuels have been experimentally studied in different turbulent environments. Some important indicators about the explosion characteristics, including maximum explosion pressure (pmax), explosion duration (tc), maximum rate of pressure rise ((dp/dt)max), deflagration index(More)
In this study, the effect of flame intrinsic instability on the flame structural characteristics of hydrogen/air mixtures premixed at various equivalence ratios were experimentally investigated from the macroscopic and microscopic perspectives, respectively. The correlation degree and the relative deformation degree were defined to quantitatively study the(More)
A high-performance graphite-Si composite anode for Li-ion batteries containing Si nanoparticles (NPs) attached onto graphite microparticles was synthesized by adopting a polymer-blend of poly(diallyl dimethyl-ammonium chloride) and poly(sodium 4-styrenesulfonate). The polymer-blend enabled uniform distribution of Si NPs during synthesis and served as a(More)
