This paper describes how, through a combination of scheduling and buuer insertion, real-time systems may b e optimized for power consumption while maintaining deadlines. Beginning with simple examples components that have n o i n ternal pipelines and in which the only design freedoms are buuer insertion and scheduling, we illustrate the eeect of adjusting(More)
BACKGROUND The exhaled nitric oxide (eNO) signal is a marker of inflammation, and can be partitioned into proximal [J'awNO (nl/s), maximum airway flux] and distal contributions [CANO (ppb), distal airway/alveolar NO concentration]. We hypothesized that J'awNO and CANO are selectively elevated in asthmatics, permitting identification of four inflammatory(More)
Among divalent cations, the ionophore monensin shows high activity and selectivity for the transport of lead ions (Pb2+) across phospholipid membranes. When coadministered to rats that were receiving meso-dimercaptosuccinate for treatment of Pb intoxication, monensin significantly increased the amount of Pb removed from femur, brain, and heart. It showed a(More)
Interrogating individual molecules within bio-membranes is key to deepening our understanding of biological processes essential for life. Using Raman spectroscopy to map molecular vibrations is ideal to non-destructively 'fingerprint' biomolecules for dynamic information on their molecular structure, composition and conformation. Such tag-free tracking of(More)
COSMO-RS is a novel and efficient method for the a-priori prediction of thermodynamic properties of mixtures. It is based on unimolecular quantum chemical calculations that provide the necessary information for the evaluation of molecular interactions in liquids. Thus, the method provides an alternative to group contribution methods such us UNIFAC for the(More)
One-dimensional (1D) nanoparticle chains with defined nanojunctions are of strong interest due to their plasmonic and electronic properties. A strategy is presented for the assembly of 1D gold-nanoparticle chains with fixed and rigid cucurbit[n]uril-nanojunctions of 9 Å. The process is electrokinetically accomplished using a nanoporous polycarbonate(More)
The macrobicyclic title compound, C(23)H(35)N(3)O(8)S, contains two tertiary amide bridgehead N atoms and a toluene-sulfonamide N atom in the center of the five-atom bridging strand. The mol-ecule has a central cavity that is defined by the 18-membered ring identified by the N(2)O(4) donor atom set and two 15-membered rings with N(3)O(2) donor atom sets.(More)
The macrotricyclic title compound, C(36)H(64)N(4)O(14)·2C(6)H(6), is located on a crystallographic center of symmetry. The mol-ecule has four tertiary amide bridgehead atoms and consists of two unsymmetrical 20-membered diaza-tetra-oxamacrocycles (N(2)O(4) donor atom set) connected through the N atoms by two lateral oxydiethyl-ene bridges. The bridging(More)
The macrobicyclic title compound, C(24)H(28)N(2)O(7), has two tertiary diamide bridgehead atoms and is composed of a 12-membered ring (N(2)O(2) donor set) and two 18-membered rings (N(2)O(4) donor sets). The solid-state structure shows that each of the amide groups is not coplanar with the adjacent benzene ring and NMR studies indicate that this(More)
