Treatment of Pentachlorophenol-Contaminated Soils Using Fenton's Reagent
ABSTRACT The Fenton's reagent (hydrogen peroxide and iron (II)) treatment of pentachlorophenol (PCP) was investigated as a basis for the on site and in situ treatment of contaminated surface soils.Expand

It is found that TiO2 micro- and nanoparticles induced cell death on both human cell types in a concentration-related manner and it was noted that zinc oxide (ZnO) nanoparticles were the most effective,TiO2 nanoparticles the secondmost effective, and magnesium oxide (MgO), the least effective in inducing cell death in U87 cells.

Fenton-like soil remediation catalyzed by naturally occurring iron minerals
ABSTRACT The ability of the iron minerals hematite and magnetite to catalyze the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and initiate the Fenton-like oxidation of pentachlorophenol (PCP) wasExpand
Degradation of perchloroethylene by Fenton's reagent : speciation and pathway
Silica sand contaminated with perchloroethylene (PCE) was effectively treated by Fenton's reagent. Silica sand contaminated with PCE at 1000 mg/kg was totally mineralized in 3 h by Fenton's reagentExpand
Prosthetic devices: Challenges and implications of robotic implants and biological interfaces
To develop a design that satisfies the ‘ideals’ of a satisfactory prosthetic, an interdisciplinary team of biomedical and tissue engineers, and biomaterial and biomedical scientists is needed to work together holistically and synergistically. Expand

A unified consideration of the various stains and their possible interrelationships is attempted, specifically as to frequency of occurrence and relative distributions, both among differ­ ent subjects as well as in the same mouth. Expand
Functional enhancement of chitosan and nanoparticles in cell culture, tissue engineering, and pharmaceutical applications
The aim is to update the current status of how nanoparticles can be utilized to modify the properties of chitosan to advance the art of tissue engineering by using cell cultures. Expand
Treatment of human astrocytoma U87 cells with silicon dioxide nanoparticles lowers their survival and alters their expression of mitochondrial and cell signaling proteins
The results strongly suggest that the cytotoxicity of silicon dioxide nanoparticles in human neural cells implicates altered mitochondrial function and cell survival/proliferation signaling. Expand
