Formaldehyde removal by potted plant-soil systems.
Investigation of formaldehyde removal by potted spider plant, aloe and golden pothos with potted soils showed that the potted plant-soil systems could remove formaldehyde from air in a long time, indicating that further elevating formaldehyde Removal capacity for plant- soil system will be realized by increasing exposed surface of potted soil.

Physicochemical differences between sorghum starch and sorghum flour modified by heat-moisture treatment.
Sorghum starch and sorghum flour were modified by heat-moisture treatment (HMT) at two different moisture contents, 20% and 25%. The result showed that solubility and swelling power of modifiedExpand

Investigation of the water migration mechanism between arabinoxylan gels and gluten matrix in a whole wheat dough system prepared from whole wheat flour with different particle sizes indicated that the decreased particle size of WWF increased the water absorption of AX gels, which led to water migration from the gluten network to the AX gelt and resulted in inferior baking quality of WWB.

Determination of effective wavelengths for discrimination of fruit vinegars using near infrared spectroscopy and multivariate analysis.
NIR spectroscopy combined with LS-SVM models had the capability to discriminate the varieties of fruit vinegars with high accuracy and indicted that the regression coefficients was an effective way for the selection of effective wavelengths. Expand
Evaluation on the toxicity of nanoAg to bovine serum albumin.
A new perspective and method is provided for determining the toxic effects of nanoAg on biological macromolecules and it is shown that BSA had destroyed the double-layer structure of nano Ag and covered its surface, generating a BSA-nanoAg complex held together by van der Waals and electrostatic forces.

Biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles by the endophytic fungus Epicoccum nigrum and their activity against pathogenic fungi
It was found that an alkaline pH favored the formation of Ag NPs and elevated temperature accelerated the reduction process, and the antifungal activity of the AgNPs was assessed using a microdilution method. Expand
Characteristics, sources, and health risk of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in urban surface dust: a case study of the city of Xi’an in Northwest China
Investigation of urban surface dust samples from Xi’an, the largest city in Northwest China, showed that the PAHs originated mainly from the combustion of fossil fuel as well as coal and wood, and petroleum emission. Expand
A MEMS Thermal Biosensor for Metabolic Monitoring Applications
This paper presents a microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) differential thermal biosensor integrated with microfluidics for metabolite measurements in either flow-injection or flow-through mode. TheExpand
Development of rapid determination of 18 phthalate esters in edible vegetable oils by gas chromatography tandem mass spectrometry.
A simultaneous and fast determination of 18 phthalic acid esters in edible vegetable oils was developed and shown to be a rapid and reliable alternative for determination and confirmation of PAEs in routine analysis. Expand
