The excellent mechanical flexibility of organic electronic devices is expected to open up a range of new application opportunities in electronics, such as flexible displays, robotic sensors, and biological and medical electronic applications. However, one of the major remaining issues for organic devices is their instability, especially their thermal(More)
Magnesium-aluminum oxide (Mg-Al oxide) obtained by thermal decomposition of Mg-Al layered double hydroxide (Mg-Al LDH) effectively removed HCl from gaseous streams. HCl removal was greater in the presence of added water vapor at all temperatures examined and increased with decreasing temperature in both the presence and absence of added water vapor. Wet and(More)
Metabolism of simvastatin (SV), a new cholesterol-lowering agent, by hepatic microsomes from male and female rats was investigated. After incubation of [14C]-SV with hepatic microsomes, radioactive metabolites were detected by HPLC. The main metabolite was 3′α-hydroxy-SV in male rats and the hydroxy open acid form of SV (SVA) in females. The 3″-hydroxy-SV(More)
Metabolic pathways of simvastatin (MK-733), a lactone prodrug of an inhibitor of HMG-CoA reductase, were elucidated in male rats, using the [14C]-labelled compound. Evidence has been obtained for hydrolysis of simvastatin and its metabolites at their 2,2-dimethylbutyryl moieties. Metabolites identified in plasma were 2,2-dimethylbutyric acid (DMB),(More)
Although effective treatment of acid gases such as HCl, SO(x), and NO(x) is essential for preventing air pollution, current methods pose other environmental problems such as CaCl₂ leaching, reduced landfill lifetimes, and solid waste production. Here we show that acid gases can be treated simply with a Mg-Al oxide slurry. The contribution of Mg-Al oxide to(More)
It is important to treat gaseous HCl from incineration streams efficiently to avoid adverse environmental consequences. In this paper, a new treatment method for gaseous HCl is presented-the application of Mg-Al layered double hydroxide (LDH) intercalated with CO(3)(2-) (CO(3)·Mg-Al LDH) to treat gaseous HCl continuously. The degree of HCl removal without(More)
Wearable assist robots deliver power in form of direct contacts with the user, therefore, safety control is considered to be the prior requirement for wearable assist robots. To improve safety, the robot needs to be controlled based on the current contact state feedback. As a state estimation concept approach, a feedback control system based on joint torque(More)
