A copper-catalyzed depolymerization strategy was employed to investigate the impact of lignin structure on the distribution of hydroprocessing products. Specifically, lignin was extracted from beech wood and miscanthus grass. The extracted lignins, as well as a commercial lignin (P1000), were then fractionated using ethyl acetate to provide three different portions for each source of lignin [total of 9 fractions]. Each fraction was structurally characterized and treated with a copper-doped porous metal oxide (Cu-PMO) catalyst under 4 MPa H2 and at 180 °C for 12 hours. The reaction conditions provided notable yields of oil for each fraction of lignin. Analysis of the oils indicated phenolic monomers of commercial interest. The structure of these monomers and the yield of monomer-containing oil was dependent on the origin of the lignin. Our results indicate that hydroprocessing with a Cu-PMO catalyst can selectively provide monomers of commercial interest by careful choice of lignin starting material. [less ▲]

Para acceder a una visibilidad médiatica, a una postura reconocible por el público y por sus pares, el traductor se ve obligado a capitalizar espacios de enunciación como los que conceden los prefacios, la crítica o los retratos biográficos. Es gracias a dichos espacios, en donde el traductor pone en marcha unas estrategias discursivas e institucionales que le permiten posicionar su figura y su proyecto de traduccción, que éste accede al estatuto de traductor-auctoritas, esto es, de instancia dotada de una autoridad simbólica susceptible de conferirle una imagen pública. Un análisis detallado de las estrategias editoriales y de los calculos institucionales que Baudelaire puso en marcha para posicionar su proyecto de traducción de Edgar Poe en la escena literaria del Segundo Imperio nos permitirá demostrar no solo cómo el autor de Las Flores del Mal accede al estatuto de traductor-auctoritas, sino también el rol que jugó su traducción en la construcción de su propia identidad literaria. Reinscribir el proyecto de traducción de Baudelaire en las relaciones de fuerza de un espacio fuertemente jerarquizado, en el cual el escritor busca construir una posición, no sólo nos permite comprender los mecanismos de funcionamiento del espacio institucional en el que se inscribe, sino también los intereses particulares que lo motivan.

Starting early 2015, the fusion-based additive manufacturing of Al alloys has been developing at an ever faster pace after undergoing a comparatively slow start with respect to other metallic materials. This paper reviews the recent developments with the aim of identifying major challenges and opportunities for future work. Laser Beam Melting proves the most useful technique for the additive fabrication of Al components with strongly out-of-equilibrium microstructures and potentially enhanced mechanical behavior. Laser Cladding is also promising for specific applications such as repairs and coatings. However, a deeper understanding of the thermal history during fabrication is still needed to further optimize the microstructures and usage properties. The design of new high strength alloys and of Al-matrix composites, and the development of better adapted post-processing procedures to take greater advantage of the specificities of fusion-based additive techniques are two other important issues in view of reaching the full potential of additive Al components.

Because of the progressive loss of nigro-striatal dopaminergic terminals in Parkinson’s disease (PD), in vivo quantitative imaging of dopamine (DA) containing neurons in animal models of PD is of critical importance in the pre-clinical evaluation of highly awaited disease-modifying therapies. Among existing methods, the high sensitivity of positron emission tomography (PET) is attractive to achieve that goal. The aim of this study was to perform a quantitative comparison of brain images obtained in 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA) lesioned rats using two dopaminergic PET radiotracers, namely [18F]fluoro-3,4-dihydroxyphenyl-L-alanine ([18F]FDOPA) and 6-[18F]fluoro-L-m-tyrosine ([18F]FMT). Because the imaging signal is theoretically less contaminated by metabolites, we hypothesized that the latter would show stronger relationship with behavioural and post-mortem measures of striatal dopaminergic deficiency. We used a within-subject design to measure striatal [18F]FMT and [18F]FDOPA uptake in eight partially lesioned, eight fully lesioned and ten sham-treated rats. Animals were pretreated with an L-aromatic amino acid decarboxylase (AADC) inhibitor. A catechol-O-methyl transferase inhibitor was also given before [18F]FDOPA PET. Quantitative estimates of striatal uptake were computed using conventional graphical Patlak method. Striatal dopaminergic deficiencies were measured with apomorphine-induced rotations and post-mortem striatal DA content. We observed a strong relationship between [18F]FMT and [18F]FDOPA estimates of decreased uptake in the denervated striatum using the tissue-derived uptake rate constant Kc. However, only [18F]FMT Kc succeeded to discriminate between the partial and the full 6-OHDA lesion and correlated well with the post-mortem striatal DA content. This study indicates that the [18F]FMT could be more sensitive, with respect of [18F]FDOPA, to investigate DA terminals loss in 6-OHDA rats, and open the way to in vivo AADC activity targeting in future investigations on progressive PD models.

¿Cómo el poeta de Las Flores del Mal paso de ser un autor proscrito, y en consecuencia sospechoso, al autor perseguido e incomprendido que ha inmortalizado la historia literaria? ¿Cómo Baudelaire pudo desviar a su favor una circunstancia que, a primera vista, era desafortunada? Baudelaire supo utilizar el escándalo que provocó la publicación de Las Flores del Mal para promover su figura pública. Un análisis de las posturas discursivas desplegadas por Baudelaire y por sus pares durante y después del proceso nos permitirá comprender mejor la inversión que el poeta hace de su condenación al transformar la sanción penal y moral, y la exclusión a la que ésta conduce, en un signo de su grandeza y de su gloria póstuma.
