Insights into the evolution of rachis dominated tail feathers from a new basal enantiornithine (Aves: Ornithothoraces)
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of EMMARM, as to provide real-time information about concrete mechanical properties such as E-modulus and compressive strength and high-resolution X-ray diffraction analysis.
A new ornithuromorph (Aves) with an elongate rostrum from the Jehol Biota, and the early evolution of rostralization in birds
The 65% upper limit in rostral proportions of Early Cretaceous taxa with elongate maxillae and the fact that this morphology was abandoned in more derived taxa suggests that in Aves this skull configuration provided less structural stability.
Growth characteristics and eicosapentaenoic acid production by Nannochloropsis sp. in mixotrophic conditions
Nannochloropsis sp. was grown under mixotrophic conditions with 30 mM glucose as carbon source, reaching 507 mg dry wt l−1 after 8 d. This was 1.4-fold of that obtained under photoautotrophic
A new small enantiornithine bird from the Jehol Biota, with implications for early evolution of avian skull morphology
The results indicate that the quadratojugal is an inverted L-shaped element, morphologically similar to that of more basal birds Archaeopteryx bavarica, Jeholornis prima, Confuciusornis sanctus and Sapeornis chaoyangensis, contributing to the refinement of the cranial kinesis in early birds.
A mild method to prepare high molecular weight poly(butylene furandicarboxylate-co-glycolate) copolyesters: effects of the glycolate content on thermal, mechanical, and barrier properties and
The melt polycondensation of glycolic acid based copolymers with high molecular weights remains a big challenge.
Synthesis and Structure–Property Relationship of Biobased Biodegradable Poly(butylene carbonate-co-furandicarboxylate)
A series of biobased poly(butylene carbonate-co-furandicarboxylate) (PBCF), are synthesized through a two-step polycondensation reaction. Chemical structures, thermal properties, crystallization
Toward Biobased, Biodegradable, and Smart Barrier Packaging Material: Modification of Poly(Neopentyl Glycol 2,5-Furandicarboxylate) with Succinic Acid
A series of biobased poly(neopentyl glycol succinate/furandicarboxylate) (PNSF) copolyesters were synthesized via a transesterification and melt polycondensation process. The 1H NMR and analysis
Biodegradable Elastomer from 2,5-Furandicarboxylic Acid and ε-Caprolactone: Effect of Crystallization on Elasticity
Most biodegradable thermoplastic materials cannot be used as elastomers due to their relatively poor elasticity. Poly(butylene furandicarboxylate-co-e-caprolactone) (PBFCL) copolyesters were synthe...
