The electrochemical degradation of chloride-mediated and chloride-free dye wastewaters was investigated on a boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrode in comparison with that on a dimensionally stable anode (DSA), and the applicability of BDD electrode to the degradation of these two kinds of wastewaters was explored. In chloride-free wastewater, the(More)
The research on ultrasound (US) enhanced electrochemical oxidation of Phenol (Ph) on boron-doped diamond (BDD) and Pt electrodes is studied. The enhancement by US on BDD is much greater than for Pt. With the assistance of US, the degradation rate and current efficiency on BDD are increased by 301% and 100%, respectively, while those on Pt are 51% and 49%.(More)
In this paper the electrochemical degradation of chlorobenzene (CB) was investigated on boron-doped diamond (BDD) and platinum (Pt) anodes, and the degradation kinetics on these two electrodes was compared. Compared with the total mineralization with a total organic carbon (TOC) removal of 85.2% in 6h on Pt electrode, the TOC removal reached 94.3% on BDD(More)
The enhancement on degradation of two typical organic pollutants, phenol (Ph) and phthalic acid (PA) on boron-doped diamond (BDD) electrode is particularly investigated in this study. Results show that ultrasound (US) has remarkable influence on electrochemical (EC) oxidation of the two pollutants including degradation efficiency, EC oxidation energy(More)
A novel electrosorption-photocatalysis synergistic electrode of TiO(2)/carbon aerogel (TiO(2)/CA) is prepared. The thermal stability and dispersion of the anatase TiO(2) particles are well facilitated by the porous and discontinuous microstructure of CA. The degradation experiments show that the TiO(2)/CA material is not only a good photocatalyst but also(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate whether poor sleep quality of third-trimester pregnancy is a risk factor for postpartum depression. MATERIAL AND METHODS Third-trimester pregnant women (T0, n=293) were tested using the first socio-demographic, Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index, and Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale assessments, and(More)
Linagliptin is a dipeptidyl Peptidase-4 (DPP-4) inhibitor that inhibits the degradation of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1), and has been approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes (T2D) in clinic. Previous studies have shown linagliptin improves β cell function using animal models and isolated islets from normal subjects. Since β cell dysfunction occurs(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate whether a genetic combined effect exists between CD40-1C>T and CTLA-4+6230G>A (CT60) polymorphisms and whether the combined effect renders susceptibility to Graves' disease (GD). We recruited 260 patients with GD and 248 healthy controls. Single nucleotide polymorphisms were genotyped by polymerase chain(More)
The development of high efficient and low energy consumption approaches for the transformation of cellulose is of high significance for a sustainable production of high value-added feedstocks. Herein, electrocatalytic oxidation technique was employed for the selective conversion of cellulose to gluconate in alkaline medium by using concentrated HNO3(More)
A highly ordered and vertically oriented array of nanotubes (NTs) of mixed oxide was prepared in situ by Ti-W alloy anodization. Compared with the traditional TiO2 NTs, the photoelectrocatalytic activity of the resulting Ti-W-O NTs was greatly enhanced. Results indicated a narrowing of the band gap from 3.2 eV for pristine TiO2 to 2.7 eV for Ti-W-O NTs.(More)
