Intestinal schistosomiasis has never been reported in the delta of the Senegal River Basin. A year and a half after the Diama dam became operational, a first case of Schistosoma mansoni infection was detected at Richard-Toll. In 1988 and 1989, 1,935 stool examinations out of a sample of 3,926 were found positive for S. mansoni. The progression of positive(More)
AIMS Interleukin 6 (IL-6) is produced by some renal carcinoma cell lines in vitro. This might be biologically important because IL-6 is a cytokine of particular interest, owing to its involvement in the growth of renal cell carcinoma. In this study, the expression of IL-6 protein in tissue samples from primary renal cell carcinoma was analysed, and then its(More)
Proton NMR measurements are used to study the kinetics and equilibrium binding of n-butanethiolate (BUS-) to the surfaces of CdSe nanocrystallites and the chemistry induced by CdSe surfaces. Because these crystallites have a well-defined size and shape, the overall amount of attached ligand can be determined by NMR and related to the average number of(More)
The actual knowledge about Ambrosia maritima is reviewed with emphasis on recent developments in the fields of plant morphology and taxonomy, the molluscicidal principles--the sesquiterpene lactones--present in the plant and the effects on snails and on non-target organisms. The use of the plant in traditional medicine is also discussed. Areas where more(More)
Plastic electronics based on organic semiconductors attract considerable attention due to the promise of low cost, lightweight, and fl exible large area electronic devices such as organic fi eld effect transistors (OFETs), [ 1 ] organic photovoltaics (OPVs), [ 2 ] electrochromic devices, [ 3 ] and organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). [ 4 ] Of the(More)
Charge injection and transport in bottom-contact regioregular-poly(3-hexylthiophene) (rr-P3HT) based field-effect transistors (FETs), wherein the Au source and drain contacts are modified by self-assembled monolayers (SAMs), is reported at different channel length scales. Ultraviolet photoelectron spectroscopy is used to measure the change in metal work(More)
Two acyclic Schiff-base ligands, bis-5,5′-(1,3-propanediyldiimino)-2,2-dimethyl-4-hexene-3-one and bis-5,5′-(1,3-ethanediyldiimino)-2,2-dimethyl-4-hexene-3-one, were used to complex homoleptic triethylaluminum and tris[bis(trimethylsilyl)amino]alu minum, respectively. The acid–base reactions proceeded in excellent yields with elimination of ethane or(More)
A new class of volatile, low-melting, fluorine-free lanthanide metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) precursors has been developed. The neutral, monomeric Ce, Nd, Gd, and Er complexes are coordinatively saturated by a versatile, multidentate ether-functionalized beta-ketoiminato ligand series, the melting point and volatility characteristics of(More)
