In this study, the distribution and partitioning of nine perfluorinated compounds (PFCs) in the water and sediment of Nansi Lake were systematically investigated. The total concentration of PFCs was in the range of 38.4-91.4 ng/L in the water and 0.47-1.81 ng/g in the sediment. The concentration of perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) was the highest in all the(More)
This study provides a timely comparative genomic and transcriptomic analysis of the terpene synthase (TPS) gene family in Medicago truncatula (bears glandular and non-glandular trichomes) and Arabidopsis thaliana (bears non-glandular trichomes). The authors' efforts aimed to gain insight into TPS function, phylogenetic relationships and the role of(More)
BACKGROUND Recent studies have demonstrated the utility of social media data sources for a wide range of public health goals, including disease surveillance, mental health trends, and health perceptions and sentiment. Most such research has focused on English-language social media for the task of disease surveillance. OBJECTIVE We investigated the value(More)
An improved loop test, which consists of twisting a loop in a nanoscale whisker adhered to a transmission electron microscopy (TEM) grid or other flat substrate and pulling the ends until the loop breaks, was developed for experimentally approaching the intrinsic strength of the whisker material. Alumina whiskers with diameters in the 82-320 nm range, as(More)
This paper seeks to identify and characterize healthrelated topics discussed on the Chinese microblogging website, Sina Weibo. We identified nearly 1 million messages containing health-related keywords, filtered from a dataset of 93 million messages spanning five years. We applied probabilistic topic models to this dataset and identified the prominent(More)
A simple criterion was developed to assess the appropriateness of the currently available models that estimate the static friction force between nanowires and substrates using the 'most-bent-state' method. Our experimental testing of the static friction force between Al2O3 nanowires and Si substrate verified our theoretical analysis, as well as the(More)
The Guangzhou section of the Pearl River (GSPR) has been seriously affected by long-term intensive industrial and urban activities. The objectives of this study were to determine the total As (TAs) content and the forms of that As in order to investigate the geochemical relationships between As forms and sediment mineral phases of the surface sediments of(More)
The chemical forms and ecological risk of As were characterized in the sediment of the Daliao River System (DRS), which has been affected by long-term intensive industrial, urban, and agricultural activities. Twenty-seven samples of surface sediment were collected and analyzed for total As content and that of its chemical forms. The results indicated that(More)
Single-crystal tungsten nanobelts with thicknesses from tens to hundreds of nanometers, widths of several micrometers and lengths of tens of micrometers were synthesized using chemical vapor deposition. Surface energy minimization was believed to have played a crucial role in the growth of the synthesized nanobelts enclosed by the low-energy {110} crystal(More)
SiC nanowires with diameters ranging from 29 to 270 nm exhibit an average strain of 5.5% with a maximum of up to 7.0%. The brittle fracture of the nano-wires being measured was confirmed by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis. This study demonstrates that amorphisation occurs in the stained SiC nanowires during normal TEM examination, which(More)
