In this work, we describe a solution-based synthesis of monodisperse Cu(2)O nanocrystals with controllable sizes in the nanoscale regime. Two types of nanocrystals, cubes and rhombic dodecahedra unifaceted with either {001} or {110} crystal planes, have been prepared at a 100% morphological yield. In particular, synthetic parameters and formation processes(More)
Acid rain causes damages to forest ecosystems. Here, we reported that acid rain could promote plant growth. From 2006 to 2009, one-year-old Elaeocarpus glabripetalus seedlings were sprayed with simulated acid rain (AR) (pH 2.5, 4.0, and 5.6). The maximum quantum yield efficiency of PSII and the actual photochemical quantum efficiency of PSII increased with(More)
AIMS To explore the relationship between family average income (FAI; an index of socio-economic status) and Type 2 diabetes in a region of mainland China. METHODS Population-based cross-sectional study, conducted between October 2000 and March 2001 in administrative villages (n = 45) randomly selected from three urban districts and two rural counties of(More)
To assess the safety and efficacy that compare bipolar hemiarthroplasty with unipolar hemiarthroplasty for the treatment of femoral neck fracture in the patient aged more than 65 years. We searched databases including PubMed Central, MEDLINE (from 1966), EMBASE (from 1980) and the Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials database. Only prospective(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the association of red meat and vegetable consumption with excess bodyweight. This is a cross sectional study, conducted between October 2000 and March 2001. Participants included 23,316 local residents aged 35 and above from 45 administrative villages randomly selected from urban and rural areas of Nanjing, China,(More)
The authors report on gas sensing properties of SnO2 hollow spheres with diverse microstructures, which are synthesized through controlled precipitation of Sn(OH)4 layers on carbon sphere templates, followed by heat treatment at different temperatures. Hollow spheres derived at 973 K consist of monolayer SnO2 grains, which lead to a huge activated surface(More)
This paper presents an automatic X-ray image processing system for fastener hole radial and circular crack detection. A robot guided X-ray imaging system equipped with a digital detector is employed to take high resolution reference images of fastener holes of various shapes, thicknesses and in different locations of an aircraft wing. Learning module of the(More)
SnO2@carbon nanostructure composites are prepared by a simple hydrothermal method. The composite exhibits unique structure, which consists of a mesoporous SnO2 core assembled of very small nanoparticles and a carbon shell with 10 nm thickness. The mesoporous SnO2@carbon core-shell nanostructures manifest superior electrochemical performance as an anode(More)
In recent years, considerable attention has been focused on graphene, because it has shown to possess a wealth of exceptional properties and various promising applications. To realize this promise, reliable methods for the large-scale production of high-quality graphene are required. Epitaxial growth on polycrystalline nickel is being actively pursued, but(More)
Two kinds of topochemical conversion routes from cobalt hydroxide precursors to cobalt oxide-based porous nanostructures are presented: pyrolysis in air and hydrothermal treatment by the Kirkendall diffusion effect. These cobalt hydroxide precursors were synthesized by a simple hydrothermal approach with sodium acetate as mineralizer at 200 °C. Detailed(More)
