Path analysis of attitudinal, motivational, demographic and behavioural factors influencing food choice among Australian consumers who had consumed at least some organic food in the preceding 12 months showed that concern with the naturalness of food and the sensory and emotional experience of eating were the major determinants of increasing levels of(More)
Ordered porous carbon films with tunable pore diameters, immobilized with glucose oxidase (GOD) have been fabricated and employed for the construction of a biosensor for glucose molecules. The as-prepared porous films have large specific surface areas and highly ordered porous structure with uniform pore sizes, which are critical for the immobilization of(More)
[1] Using magnetic field, plasma, and energetic particle data from Wind and ACE, we analyze interplanetary features associated with the first strongly geoeffective interval in the rising phase of solar cycle 23, which affected Earth on 1–4 May 1998. As shown by Skoug et al. [1999], the configuration consisted of a compound stream made up of an(More)
Poly-lactic acid (PLA) has been widely applied in the medical field (in biomedicines such as medical capsules, surgical sutures and suture wounds) owing to its high biodegradability, good biocompatibility and ability to be dissolved in common solvents. Chitosan (CS) is an abundant polysaccharide and a cationic polyelectrolyte present in nature. In this(More)
Recently, mesoporous carbon nitride (MCN) has aroused extensive interest for its potential applications in organocatalysis, photo- and electrochemistry and CO2 capture. However, further surface functionalization of MCN for advanced nanomaterials and catalysis still remains very challenging. Here we show that acidic carboxyl groups can be smoothly introduced(More)
Highly basic active sites were introduced by the encapsulation of SrO nanoparticles inside the porous channels of highly ordered mesoporous carbon using wet-impregnation method. The samples prepared were thoroughly investigated employing various physico-chemical characterization techniques such as X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption, high resolution(More)
The ‘wellness’ phenomenon is now apparent throughout the world and is associated, inter alia, with: the importance of a balanced diet; recognition of the need for regular exercise; the introduction of workplace fitness programs; and the introduction of new (and alternative) approaches to the treatment of medical ailments. What has gone seemingly unnoticed,(More)
This paper proposes the complete information agent system in the cloud computing environment based on a location tracking mechanism using GPS techniques on Android platform. This information agent system is collaborated with a related activity diagram to telecast the exact location the user procures in the cloud computing environment. The ontology which is(More)
Three-dimensional cage-like mesoporous FDU-12 materials with large tuneable pore sizes ranging from 9.9 to 15.6 nm were prepared by varying the synthesis temperature from 100 to 200 °C for the aging time of just 2 h using a tri-block copolymer F-127(EO106PO70EO106) as the surfactant and 1,3,5-trimethyl benzene as the swelling agent in an acidic condition.(More)
The nation's hospitals have long used distributed data processing as a means of reducing operational costs and providing timely service. Radiology Departments are now also taking advantage of these facilities in order to decrease the cost of producing and archiving radiological images. Today a typical medium scale hospital consumes large quantities of(More)
