The aim of this study was to examine the catalyzed decomposition of hydrogen peroxide and 2-chlorophenol (2-CP) in the presence of iron oxides. Granular ferrihydrite, goethite, and hematite were selected as catalysts in this study. 2-CP was used as the model compound because it is a typical toxic compound and has not been investigated in the catalytic(More)
This paper presents a distance measurement method based on pixel number variation of CCD images by referencing to two arbitrarily designated points in the image frames. By establishing a relationship between the displacement of the camera movement along the photographing direction and the difference in pixel count between reference points in the images, the(More)
This study examines how Fenton's reagent (Fe2+ and H2O2) decomposed dichlorvos insecticide. Results showed that dichlorvos decomposed in a two-stage reaction. The first stage is a Fe2+/H2O2 reaction in which dichlorvos swiftly decomposed. In the second stage, dichlorvos decomposed somewhat less rapidly, and it is a Fe3+/H2O2 reaction. The detection of(More)
The adaptive urban traffic signal control (TSC) system became a development trend of intelligent transportation system (ITS). We investigated the vision based surveillance and to keep sight of the unpredictable and hardly measurable disturbances may perturb the traffic flow. We integrated and performed the vision based methodologies that include the object(More)
AIM To investigate the effects of the water extracts of Danggui Shaoyao San (DGSYS) in rats used the passive avoidance task. METHODS Impairment in learning acquisition in rats was induced by colchicines, and the level of superoxide dismutase in the brain and the effects of DGSYS on the locomotor activity and pain threshold induced by colchicines were(More)
The use of goethite (alpha-FeOOH) and hydrogen peroxide was recently found that they could effectively oxidize organic compounds. The study was to investigate the effect of goethite particle size, goethite concentration, Fe2+ and Fe3+ on the 2-chlorophenol oxidation. Results indicated that 2-chlorophenol can be decomposed with hydrogen peroxide catalyzed by(More)
Complement C5a is aetiologically linked to inflammatory tissue damage in conditions like septicaemia, immune complex diseases and ischaemia-reperfusion injury. We here describe a monoclonal antibody (mAb), 137-26, that binds to the C5a moiety of human C5 and neutralizes the effects of C5a without interfering with C5 cleavage and the subsequent formation of(More)
The specific filtration resistance, moisture, and SVI were used to evaluate the influence of pH on the filtration and dewatering efficiencies when applying Fenton's reagent to treat the excess sludge. The excess sludge used in this study was obtained from the wastewater treatment plant of An-Ping Industrial Park in Tainan, Taiwan. Results show that initial(More)
In this brief, a nighttime vehicle distance measuring system using charge-coupled device (CCD) cameras is proposed. The authors use the proportionality of similar triangles to measure the distance between a CCD camera and taillights of a vehicle in front. At night, the taillights form two bright spots in the CCD image, therefore producing two measurable(More)
A novel electro-Fenton method, called the Fered-Fenton method, applying H2O2 and electrogenerated ferrous ions for treating organic-containing wastewater was investigated. By combining electrochemical reduction and chemical oxidation, the process can regenerate ferrous ions and remove organic compounds simultaneously in a batch reactor. Because the(More)
