Synovial fluid is a approximately 0.15% (w/v) aqueous solution of hyaluronic acid (HA), a polysaccharide consisting of alternating units of GlcA and GlcNAc. In synovial fluid of patients suffering from rheumatoid arthritis, HA is thought to be degraded either by radicals generated by Fenton chemistry (Fe2+/H2O2) or by NaOCl generated by myeloperoxidase. We(More)
Levofloxacin (Levo), a second generation fluoroquinolone, has both clinical and environmental relevance. Therefore, the implementation of fast, robust and cost effective techniques for its monitoring is required. Here, its spectroscopic characterization and its detection in aqueous environment were carried out using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy(More)
In this article, a 3D finite element simulation of a material accumulation process based on rod end and blank end melting is discussed. This process represents the first step of a two-level cold forming process in microrange and can be modeled mathematically by coupling the Stefan problem with the Navier-Stokes equations including a free capillary surface.(More)
The special macroscopic properties of liquid water stem from its structure as a complex network of molecules connected by hydrogen bonds. While the dynamics of single molecules within this network has been extensively investigated, only little attention has been paid to the closed loops (meshes) of hydrogen-bonded molecules which determine the network(More)
The microwave spectra of the 3,4- (syn and anti), 2,5- (syn), and 3,5-dimethylbenzaldehyde (DMBA) molecules have been recorded for the first time in the 2-26.5 GHz frequency range, using the high resolution COBRA-FTMW spectrometer in Hannover. The experimental assignments and fits are supplemented by ab initio quantum chemical calculations of the(More)
