The gadolinium(III) complex with a new DOTA-based ligand bearing a methanethiosulfonate group (MTS) was synthesized and its relaxivity properties were investigated. MTS-ADO3A is a triacid DOTA derivative with an amide arm substituted by an ethylmethanethiosulfonate function. This ligand was obtained in two steps: tri-tert-butyl 2,2′,2″-(1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7-triyl)triacetate was reacted with S-(2-aminoethyl)methanesulfonothioate and the tert-butyl groups were removed with trifluoroacetic acid. The Gd(III) MTS–ADO3A complex readily formed disulfide bonds with albumin (BSA) in its native and reduced forms and with thiolated silica particles. Four- to five-fold relaxivity increases at 20 MHz were measured on the isolated adducts. The EuMTS-ADO3A chelate was found to be monohydrated by fluorescence and the relaxivity parameters of the Gd(III) complex were obtained by 17O NMR and by measuring the nuclear magnetic relaxation dispersion between 0.01 and 80 MHz. The water exchange time τm is increased upon forming disulfide bonds with macromolecules and particles and the relaxivity gains of all the complexes are limited by the τm factor. Forming covalent or hydrophobic/electrostatic bonds with BSA seems to bring about similar relaxivity changes but the covalent BSA adducts can be isolated and their properties can be directly studied. The addition of dithiothreitol or glutathione leads to the removal of the metal chelates from the macromolecules, as indicated by the relaxation times reverting to their values before binding. It is thus expected that the chelate will stay in the body long enough for imaging but will still be excreted through the kidneys. [less ▲]

The experimental setup for laser—induced breakdown spectroscopy test was designed with pulsed Nd:YAG laser,spectrograph and ICCD and so on.Furthermore the potassium chloride solution spectra signals were detected by this setup.The spectra lines of the trace elements such as natrium (20mg/1),magnesium(1 mg/1),calcium(3 mg/1)are recorded.Experiment results show that delay time is one of the important parameters when qualitative analysis.It is easy for LIBS technology to detect multi—elements simultaneity if delay time is appropriate,and qualitative analysis has demonstrated that the feasibility of detecting trace poisonous metals in waste water using LIBS、 [less ▲]

We review what we think to be the major advances in the field of respiratory medicine over the last ten years. We concentrate here on four major diseases i.e. asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and chronic respiratory insufficiency due to restrictive disorders. Therapeutic advances are based either on new drugs or on new disease management concepts and, in some cases, on new medical devices. These advances have allowed a reduction in mortality and morbidity in aforementioned diseases. [less ▲]

This structured experience addresses four goals: to allow the participants to introduce themselves to each other; to facilitate interpersonal sharing; for the sessions focusing specifically on interpersonal relationships, to raise awareness of the different dimensions of interpersonal encounters; and finally, for the sessions focusing specifically on creativity, to foster reflection on the relationship between oneself, others, the work that is produced, and the audience to whom it is addressed.

Invasive exotic plants can modify soil organic matter (SOM) dynamics and other soil properties. We evaluated changes in particulate organic matter (POM) and carbon (C) mineralisation in adjacent plots invaded by Solidago gigantea, Prunus serotina, Heracleum mantegazzianum and Fallopia japonica, and non-invaded control plots on different soils in Belgium. Litter decomposition of S. gigantea and P. serotina was compared to that of the native species Epilobium hirsutum, Betula pendula and Fagus sylvatica. Disregarding the differences in site characteristics (soil texture, parental material and plant species), we argued that the invasion by S. gigantea and P. serotina enhance SOM dynamics by increasing C mineralisation in 2 out of 3 sites invaded by S. gigantea and in 1 out of 3 sites invaded by P. serotina; C in coarse POM (cPOM, 4,000-250 mu m) and fine POM (fPOM, 250-50 mu m) in 1 site invaded by S. gigantea and C content in total POM (tPOM, 4,000-50 mu m) and the organo-mineral fraction (OMF, 0-50 mu m) in 1 site invaded by P. serotina. H. mantegazzianum and F. japonica slowed down SOM dynamics by reducing C mineralisation in three out of four sites; C and nitrogen (N) of fPOM in the invaded compared with the non-invaded plots at one site invaded by H. mantegazzianum. However, N content of cPOM (4,000-250 mu m) was higher in the invaded sites by F. japonica compared with the non-invaded plots. Our results indicated that the effects of invasion by exotic plant species were not species-specific but site-specific. [less ▲]

The suitability of high-resolution X-ray diffraction (HRXRD) as an in-line measurement tool for the characterization of heterojunction bipolar transistor SiGe base layers and Si cap layers was investigated. We showed that despite of polycrystalline Si on the mask material of patterned wafers, HRXRD measurements performed on an array of small windows yield results which are comparable to those that were obtained on a window which is larger than the size of the source beam, regarding the thickness and the Ge content of the SiGe layers. The possibility to extract layer parameters for active device windows of different sizes was therefore demonstrated. The suitability of HRXRD for in-line measurement of the Si cap thickness was also assessed and the sensitivity of this technique for determining the substitutional boron concentration in SiGe was studied. The detection limit in the monitoring of the active dopant concentration was about 2.7 × 1019 cm-3. [less ▲]

This paper presents the advantages of a strong coupled formulation to model the electro-mechanical coupling appearing in MEMS. The classical modeling approach is to use a staggered methodology iterating between two different programs to obtain the solution of the coupled problem. In this research a strong coupled formulation is proposed and a tangent stiffness matrix of the whole problem is computed. Using this matrix, nonlinear algorithms such as the Riks-Crisfield algorithm may be applied to solve the static nonlinear problem and accurately determine the static pull-in voltage. Moreover, the natural frequencies may be computed around each equilibrium positions. The dynamic behavior of the structure may also be studied and two new parameters are defined: the dynamic pull-in voltage and the dynamic pull-in time. This strong coupled methodology deriving from variational principle may also be used for topology optimization and extended finite elements. [less ▲]

Any pruritus occurring in pregnant women may represent a sensorial manifestation unrelated to pregnancy, but it may represent the consequence of a pregnancy-specific dermatosis. This latter group encompass pruritus gravidarum with or without intrahepatic cholestasis, pemphigoid gestationis, polymorphic eruption of pregnancy, prurigo gestationis, acute folliculitis of pregnancy, impetigo herpetiformis and the progesterone auto-immune dermatitis. Fetal risk of morbidity is recognized for pruritus gravidarum with intrahepatic cholestasis, pemphigoid gestationis and impetigo herpetiformis. [less ▲]
