Clostridium carboxidivorans P7 is one of three microbial catalysts capable of fermenting synthesis gas (mainly CO, CO(2) , and H(2) ) to produce the liquid biofuels ethanol and butanol. Gasification of feedstocks to produce synthesis gas (syngas), followed by microbial conversion to solvents, greatly expands the diversity of suitable feedstocks that can be(More)
Gasification-fermentation is an emerging technology for the conversion of lignocellulosic materials into biofuels and specialty chemicals. For effective utilization of producer gas by fermenting bacteria, tar compounds produced in the gasification process are often removed by wet scrubbing techniques using acetone. In a preliminary study using biomass(More)
Planning of the mobile robot is one of the core research areas which is complex, binding and non-linear. Ant colony algorithm is an intelligent optimization algorithm developed in recent years. Aiming at the problems of the ant colony algorithm such as slow convergence speed and long computation cycle, in order to improve the efficiency of route planning,(More)
Single-crystalline gold microplates of several 10 microm in lateral size, characterized by hexagonal, truncated triangular, and triangular shapes with (111) planes as two basal surfaces, have been synthesized in large quantities through a solution phase process. Significantly, such anisotropic Au nanostructures exhibit remarkable optical properties, in(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the role of hemoglobin (HB) induced heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) in injured lungs caused by limb ischemia-reperfusion (I/R) in rats. METHODS A rat model of ischemia in the hind limbs was made by clamping the infrarenal aorta with a microvascular clip, and lung injury occurred after reperfusion. To induce the expression of HO-1 in the(More)
Silicon, being in the same group in the periodic table as carbon, plays a key role in modern semiconductor industry. However, unlike carbon nanotube (NT), progress remains relatively slow in silicon NT (SiNT) and SiNT-based heteroarchitectures, which would be the fundamental building blocks of various nanoscale circuits, devices, and systems. Here, we(More)
In this paper, modeling of parallel three-phase converters is first presented. Then definition of the circulating currents of paralleled converters and the circulating-current-generating mechanism are clearly explained. Thus, based on this definition, an averaged model of the circulating current is proposed. It is seen from this model that the circulating(More)
Nanocontainers have great potentials in targeted drug delivery and nanospace-confined reactions. However, the previous synthetic approaches exhibited limited control over the morphology, size and materials of the nanocontainers, which are crucial in practical applications. Here, we present a synthetic approach to multi-segment linear-shaped nanopores with(More)
