In this study, the development of a thermophilic biotrickling filter (BTF) system to inoculate a newly isolated strain of Chelatococcus daeguensis TAD1 for the effective treatment of nitric oxide (NO) is described. It was successfully started up in 35days and effectively removed NO from the oxygen contained simulated gas at 50°C. A mathematical model based(More)
The development of an effective biotrickling filter (BF) system to inoculate a newly isolated strain of Pseudomonas putida SB1 for the effective treatment of nitric oxide (NO) is described. The experiments were carried out in a bench-scale BF under high concentrations of O(2) and NO in simulated flue gas. A method including alternating aeration in screening(More)
A convenient and highly efficient multicomponent protocol has been developed for the synthesis of various poly-substituted 2-(pyridin-2-yl)imidazoles from 2-cyanopyridine, corresponding aromatic aldehydes, and NH(4)OAc/primary amine. Notably, tri-substituted 2-(pyridin-2-yl)imidazoles were highly yielded when aromatic primary amines were used as substrates,(More)
PURPOSE To investigate changes in the optic nerve head morphology after acute intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation during a dark room prone provocative test (DRPPT). DESIGN Prospective cohort study. PARTICIPANTS Acute primary angle-closure (APAC) suspects underwent DRPPT. METHODS Study participants stayed in a dark room for 2 hours with the forehead(More)
The tumor suppressor gene TP53 and its negative regulator murine double minute 2 are involved in multiple cellular pathways. Two potentially functional single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) MDM2 SNP309 and TP53 R72P have been extensively investigated to be associated with breast cancer risk. However, the original studies as well as the subsequent(More)
Alkaline coal fly ash and lime were tested for their effectiveness in pathogen removal from biosolids at different time intervals and temperatures. Coal fly ash at 10 and 35% w/w was mixed with dewatered biosolids and then the ash-biosolids mixture was mixed separately with 0, 1.1, 2.2, 4.4, 8.5, 11, and 18% calcium oxide (w/w on a dry weight basis) with(More)
PURPOSE To measure peripapillary choroidal thickness (PPCT) and to assess its associations. METHODS The population-based cross-sectional Beijing Eye Study 2011 included 3468 participants. Detailed medical and ophthalmic examinations were performed. We measured PPCT by spectral-domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) with a 3.4-mm scan circle centered(More)
The present paper reports a dual wavelength spectroscopic method for the determination of chemical oxygen demand (COD) of low content samples, based on the absorption measurement at 440 and 560 nm. Since the absorptivities of Cr3+ at these two wavelengths are the same, a net absorption from dichromate ions can be determined by subtracting the absorption at(More)
PURPOSE To assess changes in the peripapillary retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) in association with an acute intraocular pressure (IOP) elevation provoked by a dark room prone provocative test (DRPPT). DESIGN Prospective, comparative clinical observational study. PARTICIPANTS Nineteen study group eyes (14 individuals) and 26 control eyes (21 patients).(More)
