1 mil gold bond wire study.  

SciTech Connect

In microcircuit fabrication, the diameter and length of a bond wire have been shown to both affect the current versus fusing time ratio of a bond wire as well as the gap length of the fused wire. This study investigated the impact of current level on the time-to-open and gap length of 1 mil by 60 mil gold bond wires. During the experiments, constant current was provided for a control set of bond wires for 250ms, 410ms and until the wire fused; non-destructively pull-tested wires for 250ms; and notched wires. The key findings were that as the current increases, the gap length increases and 73% of the bond wires will fuse at 1.8A, and 100% of the wires fuse at 1.9A within 60ms. Due to the limited scope of experiments and limited data analyzed, further investigation is encouraged to confirm these observations.

Late Bombardment of the Lunar Highlands Recorded in MIL 090034, MIL 090036 and MIL 090070 Lunar Meteorites  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Kaguya mission detected small but widespread outcrops of nearly pure ferroan anorthosite in and around large impact basins on the Moon. Along with certain lunar rocks, highly feldspathic lunar meteorites such as MIL 090034 (M34), 090036 (M36), and 090070 (M70) may provide samples of this material. We have measured the Ar-40/Ar-39 release patterns and cosmogenic Ar-38 concentrations of several small (<200 microg) samples separated from M34,36, and 70. From petrographic observations concluded that "some of the clasts and grains experienced generations of modifications," a conclusion that we examine in light of our data.

The removal of bisphenol A from aqueous solutions by MIL-53(Al) and mesostructured MIL-53(Al).  

PubMed

In this work, metal-organic framework MIL-53(Al){Al(OH)[O2C-C6H4-CO2]} and MIL-53(Al)-F127{Al(OH)[O2C-C6H4-CO2]} were synthesized and used as sorbents to remove bisphenol A (BPA) from aqueous system. The sorption kinetics data of BPA were found to be in agreement with the pseudo-second-order model. The equilibrium sorption amounts of BPA on MIL-53(Al) and MIL-53(Al)-F127 reached 329.2±16.5 and 472.7±23.6 mg g(-1), respectively, far more than that of commercial activated carbons (ranging from 129.6 to 263.1 mg g(-1)). Both MIL-53(Al) and MIL-53(Al)-F127 could remove BPA fast from aqueous solutions, and the required contact time to reach equilibrium was approximately 90 min for MIL-53(Al) and 30 min for MIL-53(Al)-F127, respectively. The optimum pH levels for the removal of BPA using MIL-53 (Al) and MIL-53(Al)-F127 were 4 and 6 separately. The optimum temperature for the sorption behavior of BPA on the two sorbents was 20 °C. The results performed show that the resulting products, as one kind of MOFs, can be regarded as a new class of sorbents for water treatment and could find great applications in the fields of environmental water pollution control and resources reuse.

MEMS and mil/aero: technology push and market pull  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

MEMS offers attractive solutions to high-density fluidics, inertial, optical, switching and other demanding military/aerospace (mil/aero) challenges. However, full acceptance must confront the realities of production-scale producibility, verifiability, testability, survivability, as well as long-term reliability. Data on these `..ilities' are crucial, and are central in funding and deployment decisions. Similarly, mil/aero users must highlight specific missions, environmental exposures, and procurement issues, as well as the quirks of its designers. These issues are particularly challenging in MEMS, because of the laws of physics and business economics, as well as the risks of deploying leading-edge technology into no-fail applications. This paper highlights mil/aero requirements, and suggests reliability/qualification protocols, to guide development effort and to reassure mil/aero users that MEMS labs are mindful of the necessary realities.

Compact, Low-Overhead, MIL-STD-1553B Controller  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A compact and flexible controller has been developed to provide MIL-STD- 1553B Remote Terminal (RT) communications and supporting and related functions with minimal demand on the resources of the system in which the controller is to be installed. (MIL-STD-1553B is a military standard that encompasses a method of communication and electrical-interface requirements for digital electronic subsystems connected to a data bus. MIL-STD-1553B is commonly used in defense and space applications.) Many other MIL-STD-1553B RT controllers are complicated, and to enable them to function, it is necessary to provide software and to use such ancillary separate hardware devices as microprocessors and dual-port memories. The present controller functions without need for software and any ancillary hardware. In addition, it contains a flexible system interface and extensive support hardware while including on-chip error-checking and diagnostic support circuitry. This controller is implemented within part of a modern field-programmable gate array.

Evaluation of Mil-F-28861 filters and suppliers  

SciTech Connect

Over the last 20 years, a family of lowpass filters has been developed to eliminate electromechanical interference from power and signal lines in weapon systems. Since its inception, Sprague Electric in North Adams, Massachusetts, has produced this family of components on a line dedicated solely to these devices. Although at least seven other companies produce similar filters, suppliers are unwilling to build small quantities of components in a manner that is incompatible with their standard methods and equipment. The ability to fabricate products in small quantities on an occasional basis is an important factor in component development, and compatibility with commercially available devices enhances that ability. The Mil-F-28861/5 specifications, developed by the Defense Electronic Parts Supply Center, describe filters similar to those of the MC family. This report documents the evaluation of Mil-F-28861/5 filters acquired from the eight suppliers and serves as a basis for further development of specifications and suppliers.

Network Extender for MIL-STD-1553 Bus  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An extender system for MIL-STD-1553 buses transparently couples bus components at multiple developer sites. The bus network extender is a relatively inexpensive system that minimizes the time and cost of integration of avionic systems by providing a convenient mechanism for early testing without the need to transport the usual test equipment and personnel to an integration facility. This bus network extender can thus alleviate overloading of the test facility while enabling the detection of interface problems that can occur during the integration of avionic systems. With this bus extender in place, developers can correct and adjust their own hardware and software before products leave a development site. Currently resident at Johnson Space Center, the bus network extender is used to test the functionality of equipment that, although remotely located, is connected through a MILSTD- 1553 bus. Inasmuch as the standard bus protocol for avionic equipment is that of MIL-STD-1553, companies that supply MIL-STD-1553-compliant equipment to government or industry and that need long-distance communication support might benefit from this network bus extender

Amino Acids in the Antarctic Martian Meteorite MIL03346  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The report by McKay et al. that the Martian meteorite ALH84001 contains evidence for life on Mars remains controversial. Of central importance is whether ALH84001 and other Antarctic Martian meteorites contain endogenous organic compounds. In any investigation of organic compounds possibly derived from Mars it is important to focus on compounds that play an essential role in biochemistry as we know it and that have properties such as chirality which can be used to distinguish between biotic versus abiotic origins. Amino acids are one of the few compounds that fulfill these requirements. Previous analyses of the Antarctic Martian meteorites ALH84001 and EETA79001 have shown that these meteorites contain low levels of terrestrial amino acid contamination derived from Antarctic ice meltwater. Here we report preliminary amino acid investigations of a third Antarctic Martian meteorite MIL03346 which was discovered in Antarctica during the 2003-04 ANSMET season. Additional information is included in the original extended abstract

Molecular promoting of aluminium metal-organic framework topology MIL-101 by N,N - dimethylformamide  

PubMed Central

In-situ NMR and DFT modelling demonstrate that N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF) promotes the formation of metal-organic framework NH2-MIL-101(Al). In-situ NMR studies show that upon dissociation of an aluminium-coordinated aqua ligand in NH2-MOF-235(Al), DMF forms an HCl-DMF complex during synthesis. This reaction induces a transformation from the MOF-235 topology into the MIL-101 topology. Electronic Structure Density Functional Theory (DFT) calculations show that the use of DMF instead of water as synthesis solvent decreases the energy gap between the kinetically favored MIL-101 and the thermodynamically favored MIL-53 products. DMF therefore promotes the MIL-101 topology both kinetically and thermodynamically. PMID:24405155

Preparation, characterization, and hydrogen storage capacity of MIL-53 metal-organic frameworks.  

PubMed

Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are considered as most promising candidate for hydrogen storage material for practical application. MIL-53(Cr) MOFs were synthesized from Cr(NO3)3 x 9H2O combined with terephthalic acid organic linker. MIL-53(Cr) MOFs are octahedral in shape and the particle size was around 10 microm identified by FE-SEM. The cleaning of the MOFs crystals with different solvents at different warm temperature were found effective and approved to increase the specific surface area and porosity of MIL-53(Cr) MOFs. The XRD patterns represented that MIL-53(Cr) MOFs had well crystalline structures. Nitrogen adsorption isotherms show that Mil-53(Cr) has approximately type-I isotherm with a highest BET specific surface area of 1946 m2 g(-1) after treated with hot methanol. Hydrogen adsorption study shows that this material can store 0.45 wt.% of H2 measured at 303 K and 32 bar. The pre-edge XANES spectra confirm the existence of Cr(III) in crystalline framework of MIL-53(Cr) and the sharp feature at 6007 eV in XANES spectra represents the dipole-allowed electron transition from 1s to 4p(xy). In addition, EXAFS spectra indicate that MIL-53(Cr) metal organic frameworks structure has the Cr-O bond distance of 1.96 angstroms with a coordination number of 5.4. PMID:23763128

Novel composite material polyoxovanadate@MIL-101(Cr): a highly efficient electrocatalyst for ascorbic acid oxidation.  

PubMed

A novel hybrid composite material, PMo10V2@MIL-101 was prepared by the encapsulation of the tetra-butylammonium (TBA) salt of the vanadium-substituted phosphomolybdate [PMo10V2O40](5-) (PMo10V2) into the porous metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-101(Cr). The materials characterization by powder X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectra and scanning electron microscopy confirmed the preparation of the composite material without disruption of the MOF porous structure. Pyrolytic graphite electrodes modified with the original components (MIL-101(Cr), PMo10V2), and the composite material PMo10V2@MIL-101 were prepared and their electrochemical responses were studied by cyclic voltammetry. Surface confined redox processes were observed for all the immobilized materials. MIL-101(Cr) showed one-electron reduction process due to chromium centers (Cr(III) ? Cr(II)), while PMo10V2 presented five reduction processes: the peak at more positive potentials is attributed to two superimposed 1-electron vanadium reduction processes (V(V) ? V(IV)) and the other four peaks to Mo-centred two-electron reduction processes (Mo(VI) ? Mo(V)). The electrochemical behavior of the composite material PMo10V2@MIL-101 showed both MIL-101(Cr) and PMo10V2 redox features, although with the splitting of the two vanadium processes and the shift of the Mo- and Cr- centered processes to more negative potentials. Finally, PMo10V2@MIL-101 modified electrode showed outstanding enhanced vanadium-based electrocatalytic properties towards ascorbic acid oxidation, in comparison with the free PMo10V2, as a result of its immobilization into the porous structure of the MOF. Furthermore, PMo10V2@MIL-101 modified electrode showed successful simultaneous detection of ascorbic acid and dopamine. PMID:24308331

The Oxygen Isotopic Composition of MIL 090001: A CR2 Chondrite with Abundant Refractory Inclusions  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

MIL 090001 is a large (>6 kg) carbonaceous chondrite that was classified as a member of the CV reduced subgroup (CVred) that was recovered during the 2009-2010 ANSMET field season [1]. Based on the abundance of refractory inclusions and the extent of aqueous alteration, Keller [2] suggested a CV2 classification. Here we report additional mineralogical and petrographic data for MIL 090001, its whole-rock oxygen isotopic composition and ion microprobe analyses of individual phases. The whole rock oxygen isotopic analyses show that MIL 090001 should be classified as a CR chondrite.

Effect of synthesis solvent on the breathing behavior of MIL-53(Al).  

PubMed

This work reports the effect of using dimethylformamide (DMF) as the solvent for synthesizing MIL-53(Al). This well-known breathing MOF is typically prepared using hydrothermal methods. The two materials synthesized in DMF at 120°C and 220°C show significant deviations from the breathing behavior exhibited by the material synthesized hydrothermally. Powder X-ray diffraction confirmed that MIL-53(Al) synthesized in DMF at 120°C remains in the large-pore form under all conditions, while the other material synthesized at 220°C undergoes a more gradual breathing transition than is observed for MIL-53(Al) prepared by traditional methods. Solid-state NMR was employed to elucidate additional structural information and gain insight into the role synthesis solvent plays on breathing behavior. The CO2 and water adsorption of these large-pore stabilized materials were studied, and the differences in adsorption behavior compared to MIL-53(Al) prepared by traditional methods was discussed.

MilQuant: a free, generic software tool for isobaric tagging-based quantitation.  

PubMed

Isobaric tagging techniques such as iTRAQ and TMT are widely used in quantitative proteomics and especially useful for samples that demand in vitro labeling. Due to diversity in choices of MS acquisition approaches, identification algorithms, and relative abundance deduction strategies, researchers are faced with a plethora of possibilities when it comes to data analysis. However, the lack of generic and flexible software tool often makes it cumbersome for researchers to perform the analysis entirely as desired. In this paper, we present MilQuant, mzXML-based isobaric labeling quantitator, a pipeline of freely available programs that supports native acquisition files produced by all mass spectrometer types and collection approaches currently used in isobaric tagging based MS data collection. Moreover, aside from effective normalization and abundance ratio deduction algorithms, MilQuant exports various intermediate results along each step of the pipeline, making it easy for researchers to customize the analysis. The functionality of MilQuant was demonstrated by four distinct datasets from different laboratories. The compatibility and extendibility of MilQuant makes it a generic and flexible tool that can serve as a full solution to data analysis of isobaric tagging-based quantitation. PMID:22789671

Developmentally regulated expression of mil-1 and mil-2, mouse interferon-induced transmembrane protein like genes, during formation and differentiation of primordial germ cells.  

PubMed

In all multicellular organisms, germ cells originating from a fertilized egg have the highly specialized role of transmitting genetic information to the next generation. In many animal species, the establishment of the germ cell lineage is regulated by the maternally inherited germplasm. In mammals, however, germline determination is not based on the unequal distribution of maternal determinants. In the processes of mammalian germ cell formation and subsequent differentiation, the molecular basis of the acquisition of germ cell status is not well understood. Since migrating primordial germ cells (PGCs) are lineage-restricted to the germline, they have already acquired a germ cell specific fate distinct from that of pluri/multi-potent stem cells. However, there have been no molecules known to be expressed in migrating PGCs but not in the inner cell mass of blastocysts. Such molecules should be involved in early germ cell development, and they should make good markers for following the process of PGC formation. To identify such molecules, we performed a subtracted cDNA screening with migrating PGCs and blastocysts in mice, and isolated 11 clones preferentially expressed in PGCs. Here, we report the identification of two genes with similarity to human interferon-induced transmembrane protein (Ifitm) genes, and expression patterns of these genes in forming and in differentiating PGCs. During germ cell formation, mouse Ifitm like (mil)-1 was expressed in putative PGC ancestors in embryos at 6.5-7.5 days post coitum. In migrating PGCs, mil-1 expression was continuously observed and mil-2 expression was first detected during germ cell differentiation. PMID:14516695

However, there have been no molecules known to be expressed in migrating PGCs but not in the inner cell mass of blastocysts. Such molecules should be involved in early germ cell development, and they should make good markers for following the process of PGC formation. To identify such molecules, we performed a subtracted cDNA screening with migrating PGCs and blastocysts in mice, and isolated 11 clones preferentially expressed in PGCs. Here, we report the identification of two genes with similarity to human interferon-induced transmembrane protein (Ifitm) genes, and expression patterns of these genes in forming and in differentiating PGCs. During germ cell formation, mouse Ifitm like (mil)-1 was expressed in putative PGC ancestors in embryos at 6.5-7.5 days post coitum. In migrating PGCs, mil-1 expression was continuously observed and mil-2 expression was first detected during germ cell differentiation. PMID:12617817

Brřnsted instead of Lewis acidity in functionalized MIL-101Cr MOFs for efficient heterogeneous (nano-MOF) catalysis in the condensation reaction of aldehydes with alcohols.  

PubMed

Porous chromium(III) 2-nitro-, 2-amino-, and nonfunctionalized terephthalate (MIL-101Cr) metal organic frameworks are heterogeneous catalysts for diacetal formation from benzaldehyde and methanol (B-M reaction) as well as other aldehydes and alcohols. MIL-101Cr-NO2 obtained by direct reaction between CrO3 and 2-nitro-terephthalate showed the highest activity with 99% conversion in the B-M reaction in 90 min and turnover numbers of 114. The activity decreased in the order MIL-101Cr-NO2 > MIL-101Cr > MIL-101Cr-NH2. Within different samples of nonfunctionalized MIL-101Cr the activity increased with surface area. Methanol gas sorption of the different MIL materials correlates with the BET surface area and pore volume but not with the diacetalization activity. Benzaldehyde adsorption from heptane showed no significant difference for the different MILs. Gas sorption studies of CD3CN to probe for a higher Lewis acidity in MIL-101Cr-NO2 remained inconclusive. A high B-M catalytic activity of wet MIL-101Cr-NO2 excluded significant contributions from coordinatively unsaturated Lewis-acid sites. pH measurements of methanol dispersions of the MIL materials gave the most acidic pH (as low as 1.9) for MIL-101Cr-NO2, which significantly increased over MIL-101Cr (3.0) to MIL-101Cr-NH2 (3.3). The increase in acidity is of short range or a surface effect to the heterogeneous MIL particles as protons dissociating from the polarized aqua ligands (Cr-OH2) have to stay near the insoluble counteranionic framework. The variation in Brřnsted acidity of MIL-101Cr-NO2 > MIL-101Cr ? MIL-101Cr-NH2 correlates with the withdrawing effect of NO2 and the diacetalization activity. The catalytic B-M activity of soluble, substitution-inert, and acidic Cr(NO3)3·9H2O supports the Brřnsted-acid effect of the MIL materials. Filtration and centrifugation experiments with MIL-101Cr-NO2 revealed that about 2/3 of the catalytic activity comes from nano-MOF particles with a diameter below 200 nm. The MIL-101Cr-NO2 catalysts can be recycled five times with very little loss in activity. The diacetalization activity of MIL-101Cr-NO2 decreases with the alcohol chain length from methanol over ethanol, n-propanol, n-butanol, to almost inactive n-pentanol, while conversions for benzaldehyde, paratolylaldehyde, 4-chlorobenzaldehyde, and cyclohexanone all reach 90% or more after 90 min.

The Metal-Organic Framework MIL-53(Al) Constructed from Multiple Metal Sources: Alumina, Aluminum Hydroxide, and Boehmite.  

PubMed

Three aluminum compounds, namely alumina, aluminum hydroxide, and boehmite, are probed as the metal sources for the hydrothermal synthesis of a typical metal-organic framework MIL-53(Al). The process exhibits enhanced synthetic efficiency without the generation of strongly acidic byproducts. The time-course monitoring of conversion from different aluminum sources into MIL-53(Al) is achieved by multiple characterization that reveals a similar but differentiated crystallinity, porosity, and morphology relative to typical MIL-53(Al) prepared from water-soluble aluminum salts. Moreover, the prepared MIL-53(Al) constructed with the three insoluble aluminum sources exhibit an improved thermal stability of up to nearly 600?°C and enhanced yields. Alumina and boehmite are more preferable than aluminum hydroxide in terms of product porosity, yield, and reaction time. The adsorption performances of a typical environmental endocrine disruptor, dimethyl phthalate, on the prepared MIL-53(Al) samples are also investigated. The improved structural stability of MIL-53(Al) prepared from these alternative aluminum sources enables double-enhanced adsorption performance (up to 206?mg?g(-1) ) relative to the conventionally obtained MIL-53(Al).

Comparison of Ultrasound with Tensile Testing of Thermally Damaged Polyimide Insulated Wiring (MIL-W-81381)  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Ultrasonic measurements were performed on MIL-W-81381/7, /12, and /21 wire, a polyimide (Kapton) insulated wire. The phase velocity for the 20-gauge MIL-W-81381/7 wire had a baseline value of 3023 plus or minus 78 m/s. After exposure to high temperatures, the wire's phase velocity rapidly increased, and reached an asymptotic value of 3598 plus or minus 20 m/s after 100 hours exposure. Similar responses were measured in other gauges. The baseline measurements of Young's moduli resulted in values of 5636 plus or minus 486, 7714 plus or minus 505, and 8767 plus or minus 292 KSI for the 20 ga, 16 ga, and 12 ga. wires respectively.

Evaluating Thermally Damaged Polyimide Insulated Wiring (MIL-W-81381) with Ultrasound  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

A series of experiments to investigate the use of ultrasound for measuring wire insulation have been conducted. Initial laboratory tests were performed on MIL-W-81381/7,/12, and /21 aviation wire, a wire that has polyimide (Kapton Registered Trademark) layers for insulation. Samples of this wiring were exposed to 370C temperatures for different periods of time to induce a range of thermal damage. For each exposure, 12 samples of each gauge (12, 16, and 20 gauges) were processed. The velocity of the lowest order axisymmetric ultrasonic guided mode, a mode that is sensitive to the geometry and stiffness of the wire conductor and insulation, was measured. The phase velocity for the 20-gauge MIL-W-81381/7 wire had a baseline value of 3023 +/- 78 m/s. After exposure to the high temperatures, the wire's phase velocity rapidly increased, and reached an asymptotic value of 3598 +/- 20 m/s after 100 hours exposure. Similar behavior was measured for the 16 gauge MIL-W-81381/21 wire and 12 gauge MIL-W-81381/12 wire which had baseline values of 3225 +/- 22 m/s and 3403 +/- 33 m/s respectively, and reached asymptotic values of 3668 +/- 19 m/s, and 3679 +/- 42 m/s respectively. These measured velocity changes represent changes of 19, 14, and 8 percent respectively for the 20, 16, and 12 gauge wires. Finally, some results for a wire with an ethylene tetrafluoroethylene insulation are reported. Qualitatively similar behaviors are noted ultrasonically.

MAS/MILS Arc/Info point coverage for the western U.S. (excluding Hawaii)  

USGS Publications Warehouse

The U.S. Geological Survey has two international and one regional digital database that contains information on mineral properties. This report describes the conversion of selected data from one of the international databases - MAS/MILS (Mineral Availability System/Mineral Industry Location System) - into a spatial data product. The MAS/MILS database, obtained from the U.S. Bureau of Mines (USBM) upon its closure, contains over 221,000 records of mineral properties and processing facilities throughout the world. However, the majority of the records in the database are of sites located in the western U.S. This is due to the extensive mineral activity that has occurred in the West, and the work done by mineral professionals in the Western, Alaska, and Intermountain Field Operations Centers of the USBM. The purpose of this project was to create a spatial coverage of the western U.S. containing mineral resource information. This coverage includes information for the states of Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. For this report, locations from MAS/MILS were converted to a point coverage using a geographic information system (GIS). All work was done using Arc/Info v. 7.0.4. There are 128,441 points in the coverage.

Raster data transfer test using Formtek produced data: MIL-R-28002 Type 1 (Raster)  

SciTech Connect

The DoD Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistics Support (CALS) Test Network (CTN) is conducting tests of the military standard for the Automated interchange of Technical Information, MIL-STD-1804A, and its companion suite of specifications. The CTN is a DoD sponsored confederation of voluntary participants from industry and government, managed by the Air Force Logistics Command. The primary purpose of the CTN is to evaluate the effectiveness of the CALS standards for technical data interchange and to demonstrate the capability and operational suitability of these standards. To this end, testing should represent the systems and applications in use by a large number of participants. Sampling a wide cross section of industry and government will gain feedback on the various interpretations of the standards and broaden the base of industry participation in the CALS initiative. This test was conducted to allow Formtek to demonstrate their ability to generated a MIL-R-28002 data file. The objective was to evaluate their interpretation of the MIL-R-28002 standard thereby assist the CTN in substantiating the validity of the standards or recommending changes to these standards and the references to national or international standards. Additionally, Quick Short Test Reports (QSTRs) are intended to promote industry and government participation in the CALS initiative, developing a level of confidence in the technology and furthering mission objectives.

Effects of the herbal formulation ColiMil on upper gastrointestinal transit in mice in vivo.  

PubMed

Clinical evidence suggests that the herbal formulation ColiMil (which contains Matricaria recutita flowers extract, Foeniculum vulgare fruit extract and Melissa officinalis aerial parts extract) is effective in the treatment of breastfed colic in infants. Therefore the effect of this phytotherapeutic formulation and its herbal constituents on upper gastrointestinal transit was investigated in mice in vivo. Oral administration of the herbal formulation (0.4-0.8 mL/mice) dose-dependently delayed upper gastrointestinal transit. Among the herbal components, Matricaria recutita extract (0.89 and 1.78 mg/mouse) and Melissa officinalis extract (6.46 and 12.92 mg/mouse), but not Foeniculum vulgare (8.21 and 16.42 mg/mouse), reduced motility significantly. These results suggest that ColiMil reduces upper gastrointestinal motility in mice, with a major contribution by Matricaria recutita and Melissa officinalis. These experimental data may be important to better understand the observation that the herbal formulation ColiMil improves colic in breastfed infants. PMID:17582592

Four-Channel PC/104 MIL-STD-1553 Circuit Board  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The mini bus interface card (miniBIC) is the first four-channel electronic circuit board that conforms to MIL-STD-1553 and to the electrical-footprint portion of PC/104. [MIL-STD-1553 is a military standard that encompasses a method of communication and electrical- interface requirements for digital electronic subsystems connected to a data bus. PC/104 is an industry standard for compact, stackable modules that are fully compatible (in architecture, hardware, and software) with personal-computer data- and power-bus circuitry.] Prior to the development of the miniBIC, only one- and two-channel PC/104 MIL-STD-1553 boards were available. To obtain four channels, it was necessary to include at least two boards in a PC/104 stack. In comparison with such a two-board stack, the miniBIC takes up less space, consumes less power, and is more reliable. In addition, the miniBIC includes 32 digital input/output channels. The miniBIC (see figure) contains four MIL-STD-1553B hybrid integrated circuits (ICs), four transformers, a field-programmable gate array (FPGA), and an Industry Standard Architecture (ISA) interface. Each hybrid IC includes a MILSTD-1553 dual transceiver, memory-management circuitry, processor interface logic circuitry, and 64Kx16 bits of shared static random access memory. The memory is used to configure message and data blocks. In addition, 23 16-bit registers are available for (1) configuring the hybrid IC for, and starting it in, various modes of operation; (2) reading the status of the functionality of the hybrid IC; and (3) resetting the hybrid IC to a known state. The miniBIC can operate as a remote terminal, bus controller, or bus monitor. The FPGA provides the chip-select and data-strobe signals needed for operation of the hybrid ICs. The FPGA also receives interruption signals and forwards them to the ISA bus. The ISA interface connects the address, data, and control interfaces of the hybrid ICs to the ISA backplane. Each channel is, in effect, a MIL-STD-1553 interface that can operate either independently of the others or else as a redundant version of one of the others. The transformer in each channel provides electrical isolation between the rest of the miniBIC circuitry and the bus to which that channel is connected.

Metal-organic frameworks as potential shock absorbers: the case of the highly flexible MIL-53(Al).  

PubMed

The mechanical energy absorption ability of the highly flexible MIL-53(Al) MOF material was explored using a combination of experiments and molecular simulations. A pressure-induced transition between the large pore and the closed pore forms of this solid was revealed to be irreversible and associated with a relatively large energy absorption capacity. Both features make MIL-53(Al) the first potential MOF candidate for further use as a shock absorber. PMID:25008198

Graphite oxide/metal-organic framework (MIL-101): remarkable performance in the adsorptive denitrogenation of model fuels.  

PubMed

A highly porous metal-organic framework (MOF), MIL-101 (Cr-benzenedicarboxylate), was synthesized in the presence of graphite oxide (GO) to produce GO/MIL-101 composites. The porosity of the composites increased remarkably in the presence of a small amount of GO (<0.5% of MIL-101); however, further increases in GO reduced the porosity. GO also accelerated the synthesis of the MIL-101. The composites (GO/MIL-101) were used, for the first time, in liquid-phase adsorptions. The adsorptive removal of nitrogen-containing compounds (NCCs) and sulfur-containing compounds (SCCs) from model fuels demonstrated the potential applications of the composites in adsorptions, and the adsorption capacity was dependent on the surface area and pore volume of the composites. Most importantly, the GO/MIL-101 composite has the highest adsorption capacity for NCCs among reported adsorbents so far, partly because of the increased porosity of the composite. Finally, the results suggest that GO could be used in the synthesis of highly porous MOF composites, and the obtained materials could be used in various adsorptions in both liquid and gas/vapor phase (such as H2, CH4, and CO2 storage) adsorptions, because of the high porosity and functional GO.

The mechanical and inflammatory low back pain (MIL) index: development and validation  

PubMed Central

Background The purpose of this study was the development of a valid and reliable “Mechanical and Inflammatory Low Back Pain Index” (MIL) for assessment of non-specific low back pain (NSLBP). This 7-item tool assists practitioners in determining whether symptoms are predominantly mechanical or inflammatory. Methods Participants (n?=?170, 96 females, age?=?38?±?14 years-old) with NSLP were referred to two Spanish physiotherapy clinics and completed the MIL and the following measures: the Roland Morris Questionnaire (RMQ), SF-12 and “Backache Index” (BAI) physical assessment test. For test-retest reliability, 37 consecutive patients were assessed at baseline and three days later during a non-treatment period. Face and content validity, practical characteristics, factor analysis, internal consistency, discriminant validity and convergent validity were assessed from the full sample. Results A total of 27 potential items that had been identified for inclusion were subsequently reduced to 11 by an expert panel. Four items were then removed due to cross-loading under confirmatory factor analysis where a two-factor model yielded a good fit to the data (?2?=?14.80, df?=?13, p?=?0.37, CFI?=?0.98, and RMSEA?=?0.029). The internal consistency was moderate (??=?0.68 for MLBP; 0.72 for ILBP), test-retest reliability high (ICC?=?0.91; 95%CI?=?0.88-0.93) and discriminant validity good for either MLBP (AUC?=?0.74) and ILBP (AUC?=?0.92). Convergent validity was demonstrated through similar but weak correlations between the ILBP and both the RMQ and BAI (r?=?0.34, p?MIL is a valid and reliable clinical tool for patients with NSLBP that discriminates between mechanical and inflammatory LBP.

Ar-Ar Dating of Martian Chassignites, NWA2737 and Chassigny, and Nakhlite MIL03346  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Until recently only three nakhlites and one chassignite had been identified among martian meteorites. These four exhibit very similar radiometric ages and cosmic ray exposure (CRE) ages, indicating that they may have derived from a common location on Mars and were ejected into space by a single impact. This situation is quite different from that of martian shergottites, which exhibit a range of radiometric ages and CRE ages (1). Recently, several new nakhlites and a new martian dunite (NWA2737) have been recognized. Here we report our results of Ar-39-Ar-40 dating for the MIL03346 nakhlite and the NWA2737 "chassignite", along with new results on Chassigny.

Ar-39-Ar-40 Ages of Two Nakhlites, MIL03346 and Y000593: A Detailed Analysis  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Radiometric dating of martian nakhlites by several techniques have given similar ages of approx.1.2-1.4 Ga [e.g. 1, 2]. Unlike the case with shergottites, where the presence of martian atmosphere and inherited radiogenic Ar-40 produce apparent Ar-39-Ar-40 ages older than other radiometric ages, Ar-Ar ages of nakhlites are similar to ages derived by other techniques. However, even in some nakhlites the presence of trapped martian Ar produces some uncertainty in the Ar-Ar age. We present here an analysis of such Ar-Ar ages from the MIL03346 and Y000593 nakhlites.

Programming MIL-101Cr for selective and enhanced CO2 adsorption at low pressure by postsynthetic amine functionalization.  

PubMed

MIL-101Cr fully or partially (p) postsynthetically modified with nitro (-NO2) or amino (-NH2) groups was shown to be a robust, water stable, selective and enhanced carbon dioxide (CO2) adsorption material with the amine-functionality. The highly microporous amine-modified frameworks (up to 1.6 cm(3) g(-1) total pore volume) exhibit excellent thermal stability (>300 °C) with BET surface areas up to 2680 m(2) g(-1). At 1 bar (at 273 K) the gases CO2, CH4 and N2 are adsorbed up to 22.2 wt%, 1.67 wt% and 2.27 wt%, respectively. The two amine-modified MIL-101Cr-NH2 (4) and MIL-101Cr-pNH2 (5) showed the highest gas uptake capacities in the series with high ratios for the CO2 : N2 and CO2 : CH4 selectivities (up to 119 : 1 and 75 : 1, respectively, at 273 K). Comparison with non-modified MIL-101Cr traces the favorable CO2 adsorption properties of MIL-101Cr-NH2 (4) and MIL-101Cr-pNH2 (5) to the presence of the Lewis-basic amine groups. MIL-101Cr-NH2 (4) has a high isosteric heat of adsorption of 43 kJ mol(-1) at zero surface coverage and also >23 kJ mol(-1) over the entire adsorption range, which is well above the heat of liquefaction of bulk CO2. Large CO2 uptake capacities of amine-functionalized 4 and 5, coupled with high adsorption enthalpy, high selectivities and proven long-term water stability, make them suitable candidates for capturing CO2 at low pressure from gas mixtures including the use as a CO2 sorbent from moist air.

Immobilization of Co-containing polyoxometalates in MIL-101(Cr): structural integrity versus chemical transformation.  

PubMed

The encapsulation of three different cobalt substituted polyoxometalates (POMs) within the mesoporous chromium(iii) terephthalate MIL-101(Cr) metal-organic framework (MOF) was studied by a simple and green impregnation method using water. The POM@MIL composite materials were fully characterized by EDX, XRPD, IR, MAS NMR and N2 porosimetry measurements. The encapsulated POMs were then extracted by an exchange procedure using a LiCl solution. (31)P NMR spectroscopy is the key experiment which indicates that the monosubstituted Keggin anion [PW11CoO39(H2O)](5-) (PW11Co) and the sandwich-type anion [(PW9O34)2Co4(H2O)2](10-) (P2W18Co4) can be encapsulated and extracted without degradation, neither of the POM nor of the MOF, while the hybrid sandwich-type POM [(PW9O34)2Co7(OH)2(H2O)4(O3PC(O)(C3H6NH3)PO3)2](14-) (Co7-Ale) evolves into P2W18Co4 inside the cavities of the mesoporous material. The PW11Co Keggin anion is the most quantitatively uploaded and the most easily extracted anion. (31)P MAS-NMR spectroscopy further suggests that this anion is more mobile inside the cavities of the MOF than the P2W18Co4 POM. PMID:25009994

Adsorption of Carbon Dioxide by MIL-101(Cr): Regeneration Conditions and Influence of Flue Gas Contaminants  

PubMed Central

MIL-101(Cr) has drawn much attention due to its high stability compared with other metal-organic frameworks. In this study, three trace flue gas contaminants (H2O, NO, SO2) were each added to a 10 vol% CO2/N2 feed flow and found to have a minimal impact on the adsorption capacity of CO2. In dynamic CO2 regeneration experiments, complete regeneration occurred in 10?min at 328 K for temperature swing adsorption-N2-stripping under a 50?cm3/min N2 flow and at 348 K for vacuum-temperature swing adsorption at 20?KPa. Almost 99% of the pre-regeneration adsorption capacity was preserved after 5 cycles of adsorption/desorption under a gas flow of 10 vol% CO2, 100?ppm SO2, 100?ppm NO, and 10% RH, respectively. Strong resistance to flue gas contaminants, mild recovery conditions, and excellent recycling efficiency make MIL-101(Cr) an attractive adsorbent support for CO2 capture. PMID:24107974

Mission-oriented requirements for updating MIL-H-8501: Calspan proposed structure and rationale  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This report documents the effort by Arvin/Calspan Corporation to formulate a revision of MIL-H-8501A in terms of Mission-Oriented Flying Qualities Requirements for Military Rotorcraft. Emphasis is placed on development of a specification structure which will permit addressing Operational Missions and Flight Phases, Flight Regions, Classification of Required Operational Capability, Categorization of Flight Phases, and Levels of Flying Qualities. A number of definitions is established to permit addressing the rotorcraft state, flight envelopes, environments, and the conditions under which degraded flying qualities are permitted. Tentative requirements are drafted for Required Operational Capability Class 1. Also included is a Background Information and Users Guide for the draft specification structure proposed for the MIL-H-8501A revision. The report also contains a discussion of critical data gaps and attempts to prioritize these data gaps and to suggest experiments that should be performed to generate data needed to support formulation of quantitative design criteria for the additional Operational Capability Classes 2, 3, and 4.

Quasi-1D physics in metal-organic frameworks: MIL-47(V) from first principles  

PubMed Central

Summary The geometric and electronic structure of the MIL-47(V) metal-organic framework (MOF) is investigated by using ab initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Special focus is placed on the relation between the spin configuration and the properties of the MOF. The ground state is found to be antiferromagnetic, with an equilibrium volume of 1554.70 Ĺ3. The transition pressure of the pressure-induced large-pore-to-narrow-pore phase transition is calculated to be 82 MPa and 124 MPa for systems with ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic chains, respectively. For a mixed system, the transition pressure is found to be a weighted average of the ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic transition pressures. Mapping DFT energies onto a simple-spin Hamiltonian shows both the intra- and inter-chain coupling to be antiferromagnetic, with the latter coupling constant being two orders of magnitude smaller than the former, suggesting the MIL-47(V) to present quasi-1D behavior. The electronic structure of the different spin configurations is investigated and it shows that the band gap position varies strongly with the spin configuration. The valence and conduction bands show a clear V d-character. In addition, these bands are flat in directions orthogonal to VO6 chains, while showing dispersion along the the direction of the VO6 chains, similar as for other quasi-1D materials. PMID:25383285

Characterization of adsorbed water in MIL-53(Al) by FTIR spectroscopy and ab-initio calculations  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Here, we report ab-initio calculations developed with a twofold purpose: understand how adsorbed water molecules alter the infrared spectrum of the metal-organic framework MIL-53(Al) and to investigate which are the associated physico-chemical processes. The analyzed structures are the two anhydrous narrow (np?) and large (lp?) pore forms and the hydrated narrow pore form (np-H2O) of the MIL-53(Al). For these structures, we determined their corresponding infrared spectra (FTIR) and we identified the vibrational modes associated to the dominant spectral lines. We show that wagging and scissoring modes of CO2 give flexibility to the structure for facilitating the lp?- np? transition. In our studies, this transition is identified by eight vibrational modes including the ?CH(18a) vibrational mode currently used to identify the mentioned transition. We report an exhaustive band identification of the infrared spectra associated to the analyzed structures. Moreover, the FTIR for the np-H2O structure allowed us to identify four types of water molecules linked to the host structure by one to three hydrogen bonds.

Transmission Electron Microscope Studies of Martian 'Iddingsite' in the Nakhlite Meteorite MIL 090032  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

As with the other nakhlites, MIL 090032 contains iddingsite-like alteration veins in the olivine phenocrysts that reportedly originated on Mars[1]. These 'iddingsite' veins have been analysed in a number of the nakhlite meteorites[2], and the presence of hydrous silicate gel, smectite clays, siderite, Fe-oxides, gypsum and carbonate have been reported. The presence and proportion of these phases in the different nakhlites appears to relate to the composition and concentration of the martian brine that flowed through each, thus supporting the theory that the nakhlite secondary alteration phases were produced by an evaporation sequence on the surface of Mars[3]. We analyzed these martian 'iddingsite' veins in MIL 090032 with the aim of placing it and its three paired meteorites within the nakhlite alteration sequence. By expanding our knowledge of this alteration sequence, we will gain extra insight into the conditions on the martian surface at the time these 'iddingsite' veins formed (<1.3 Ga). We utilized the 80-300 kV aberration-corrected FEI Titan (Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscope (S-TEM) system at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to analyse a ~15×8?m Focused Ion Beam (FIB) section of an 'iddingsite' vein in MIL 090032. To allow the electrons to be transmitted through the FIB section, it was milled down to ~150 nm thickness. Our initial TEM data indicate this FIB section contains hydrous amorphous silicate gel towards the center, with areas of phyllosilicate (possibly nontronite) interspersed within this central zone. Towards the outer edge of the vein jarosite and then gypsum sulfates were present. At the very edge only partially broken down olivine was observed. The presence of phyllosilicate and silicate gel in this vein suggests the 'iddingsite' in MIL 090032 was produced by water-rich brine, and the abundance of sulfates suggests the brine was enriched in sulfur. This assemblage of minerals is most in line with that of the 'iddingsite' veins in the meteorite Lafayette, which is thought to have been exposed to the most aqueous brine in the nakhlite alteration sequence[2,3]. MIL 090032 is a meteorite find, and contains areas of terrestrially derived sulfate-rich alteration which appear to have similar compositions to the martian 'iddingsite' veins (although texturally the two are easily distinguishable). Therefore, in addition to our analysis of the above 'iddignsite' FIB section, we aim to analyze a similar FIB section of this terrestrial sulfate-rich alteration and compare the two. This comparison could not only determine if terrestrial weathering has affected the mineralogy and petrology of the pre-terrestrial alteration, but also whether the conditions on the martian surface were similar to those in the Antarctic valleys at the time the 'iddingsite' veins formed.

Post-synthetic modification of MIL-101(Cr) with pyridine for high-performance liquid chromatographic separation of tocopherols.  

PubMed

Effective separation of tocopherols is challenging and significant due to their structural similarity and important biological role. Here we report the post-synthetic modification of metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-101(Cr) with pyridine for high-performance liquid chromatographic (HPLC) separation of tocopherols. Baseline separation of four tocopherols was achieved on a pyridine-grafted MIL-101(Cr) packed column within 10min using hexane/isopropanol (96:4, v/v) as the mobile phase at a flow rate of 0.5mLmin(-1). The pyridine-grafted MIL-101(Cr) packed column gave high column efficiency (85,000platesm(-1) for ?-tocopherol) and good precision (0.2-0.3% for retention time, 1.8-3.4% for peak area, 2.6-2.7% for peak height), and also offered much better performance than unmodified MIL-101(Cr) and commercial amino-bonded silica packed column for HPLC separation of tocopherols. The results not only show the promising application of pyridine-grafted MIL-101(Cr) as a novel stationary phase for HPLC separation of tocopherols, but also reveal a facile post-modification of MOFs to expand the application of MOFs in separation sciences.

MIL-M-38510/470 test vectors: Fault detection efficiency measurement via hardware fault simulation. [rca 1802 microprocessor  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The stuck fault detection efficiency of the test vectors developed for the MIL-M-38510/470 NASA was measured using a hardware stuck fault simulator for the 1802 microprocessor. Thirty-nine stuck faults were not detected out of a total of 874 injected into the combinatorial and sequential parts of the microprocessor. Since undetected faults can create catastrophic errors in equipment designed for high reliability applications, it is recommended that the MIL-M-38510/470 NASA be enhanced with additional test vectors so as to achieve 100% stuck fault detection efficiency.

Reliability improvement of 1 mil aluminum wire bonds for semiconductors, technical performance summary  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The reliability of semiconductor devices as influenced by the reliability of wire bonds used in the assembly of the devices is investigated. The specific type of failure dealt with involves fracture of wire bonds as a result of repeated flexure of the wire at the heel of the bond when the devices are operated in an on-off mode. The mechanism of failure is one of induced fracture of the wire. To improve the reliability of a chosen transistor, one-mil diameter wires of aluminum with various alloy additions were studied using an accelerated fatigue testing machine. In addition, the electroprobe was used to study the metallurgy of the wires as to microstructure and kinetics of the growth of insoluble phases. Thermocompression and ultrasonic bonding techniques were also investigated.

129Xe NMR study of the framework flexibility of the porous hybrid MIL-53(Al).  

PubMed

The metal-organic framework MIL-53 exhibits a structural transition between two possible porous structures, so-called large-pore (lp) and narrow-pore (np) forms, depending on the temperature or when guest molecules are adsorbed. (129)Xe NMR has been used to study the lp --> np transition induced by the adsorption of xenon as revealed by the adsorption isotherms. The NMR spectra show that the two structures, characterized by two distinct lines, coexist for xenon pressures above 5 x 10(4) Pa at room temperature, but a complete transformation is achieved when the temperature is decreased. An original interpretation of the NMR results allowed us to quantify the rate of the structural transformation. In particular, at room temperature, we have shown that 28% of the channels remain open. Two possible interpretations of the hysteresis observed in the chemical shift variation versus xenon pressure are proposed. PMID:20681589

Metal-organic framework MIL-101 as a low background signal platform for label-free DNA detection.  

PubMed

A label-free and sensitive fluorescence method for recognition of sequence-specific DNA using DNA-intercalating dye and metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is developed. Here, MIL-101 (Cr3F(H2O)2O[(O2C)-C6H4-(CO2)]3·nH2O) is introduced as a quenching platform to decrease the high background fluorescence of SYBR Green I (SG)/probe DNA complex. Mechanism investigations show that MIL-101 can strongly adsorb the SG/probe DNA complex through ?-? stacking and electrostatic interactions, and as a consequence, the fluorescence of the SG dye is greatly quenched. While in the presence of target DNA, the as-formed rigid double-stranded (ds) structure of DNA will be far away from the surface of MIL-101; meanwhile, the SG dye can be bound with the dsDNA in the mode of intercalation and minor groove binding, resulting in enhancement of the SG dye fluorescence. The increased signal-to-background ratio has a linear relationship with the concentration of target DNA in the range of 0.1-14 nM. It is confirmed that the detection limit is 73 pM (3?), which is much lower than that based on the carbon nanotubes and graphene oxide platform. Moreover, one-base-mismatched target DNA can be discriminated effectively. With the introduction of MIL-101, the signal-to-background ratio has been improved ?8-fold, demonstrating that MIL-101 is an efficient low-background signal platform. PMID:24362708

Aldehyde-alcohol reactions catalyzed under mild conditions by chromium(III) terephthalate metal organic framework (MIL-101) and phosphotungstic acid composites.  

PubMed

Porous materials based on chromium(III) terephthalate metal organic frameworks (MIL-101) and their composites with phosphotungstic acid (PTA) were studied as heterogeneous acid catalysts in aldehyde-alcohol reactions exemplified by acetaldehyde-phenol (A-P) condensation and dimethylacetal formation from benzaldehyde and methanol (B-M reaction). The MIL-101 was synthesized solvothermically in water, and the MIL101/PTA composite materials were obtained by either impregnation of the already prepared MIL-101 porous matrix with phosphotungstic acid solution or by solvothermic treatment of aqueous mixtures of Cr(NO(3))(3), and terephthalic and phosphotungstic acids. The MIL101/PTA materials appeared to be effective catalysts for both A-P and B-M reactions occurring at room temperature, with half-lives ranging from 0.5 h (A-P) to 1.5-2 h (B-M) and turnover numbers over 600 for A-P and over 2900 for the B-M reaction, respectively. A synergistic effect of the strong acidic moieties (PTA) addition to mildly acidic Brřnsted and Lewis acid cites of the MIL-101 was observed with the MIL101/PTA composites. The ability of the PTA and MIL101/PTA materials to strongly absorb and condense acetaldehyde vapors was discovered, with the MIL101/PTA absorbing over 10-fold its dry weight of acetaldehyde condensate at room temperature. The acetaldehyde was converted rapidly to crotonaldehyde and higher-molecular-weight compounds while in contact with MIL-101 and MIL101/PTA materials. The stability of the MIL-101 and MIL101/PTA catalysts was assessed within four cycles of the 1-day alcohol-aldehyde reactions in terms of the overall catalyst recovery, PTA or Cr content, and reaction rate constants in each cycle. The loss of the catalyst over 4 cycles was approximately 10 wt % for all tested catalysts due to the incomplete recovery and minute dissolution of the components. The reaction rates in all cycles remained unchanged and the catalyst losses stopped after the third cycle. The developed MIL101/PTA composites appear to be feasible for industrial catalytic applications. PMID:22091761

Synthesis and characterization of mangenese(III) porphyrin supported on imidazole modified chloromethylated MIL-101(Cr): A heterogeneous and reusable catalyst for oxidation of hydrocarbons with sodium periodate  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In the present work, chloromethylated MIL-101(Cr) modified with imidazole, Im-MIL-101, was applied as a support for immobilizing of tetraphenylporphyrinatomangenese(III) chloride. The imidazole-bound MIL-101, Im-MIL-101, not only used as support for immobilization of manganese porphyrin but also applied as a heterogeneous axial base. The Mn(TPP)Cl@Im-MIL-101 catalyst was characterized by UV-vis, FT-IR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), N2 adsorption, field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDX), elemental analysis and inductively coupled plasma (ICP) methods. The catalytic activity of this new catalytic system was investigated in the alkene epoxidation and alkane hydroxylation using NaIO4 as an oxidant in CH3CN/H2O at room temperature. This heterogeneous catalyst is highly efficient, stable and reusable in the oxidation of hydrocarbons.

Petrology and Geochemistry of Unbrecciated Harzburgitic Diogenite MIL 07001: A Window Into Vestan Geological Evolution  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

There is a strong case that asteroid 4 Vesta is the parent of the howardite, eucrite and diogenite (HED) meteorites. Models developed for the geological evolution of Vesta can satisfy the compositions of basaltic eucrites that dominate in the upper crust. The bulk compositional characteristics of diogenites - cumulate harzburgites and orthopyroxenites from the lower crust - do not fit into global magma ocean models that can describe the compositions of basaltic and cumulate eucrites. Recent more detailed formation models do make provision for a more complicated origin for diogenites, but this model has yet to be completely vetted. Compositional studies of bulk samples has led to the hypothesis that many diogenites were formed late by interaction of their parent melts with a eucritic crust, but those observations may alternatively be explained by subsolidus equilibration of trace elements between orthopyroxene and plagioclase and Ca-phosphate in the rocks. Differences in radiogenic Mg-26 content between diogenites and eucrites favors early formation of the former, not later formation. Understanding the origin of diogenites is crucial for understanding the petrologic evolution of Vesta. We have been doing coordinated studies of a suite of diogenites including petrologic investigations, bulk rock major and trace element studies, and in situ trace element analyses of orthopyroxene. Here we will focus on an especially unusual, and potentially key, diogenite, MIL 07001.

Two Distinct Redox Intercalation Reactions of Hydroquinone with Porous Vanadium Benzenedicarboxylate MIL-47.  

PubMed

One of the enticing features of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is the potential to control the chemical and physical nature of the pores through postsynthetic modification. The incorporation of redox active guest molecules inside the pores of the framework represents one strategy toward improving the charge transport properties of MOFs. Herein, we report the vapor-phase redox intercalation of an electroactive organic compound, hydroquinone (H2Q) or benzene-1,4-diol, into the channels of the host [V(IV)O(bdc)], (bdc =1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) conventionally denoted as MIL-47. The temperatures and especially the atmosphere in which the reactions took place were found to determine the products. In ambient atmosphere, quinhydrone charge-transfer complexes are formed inside the channels. Under anhydrous conditions, the framework itself was functionalized by a radical anion species derived from the pyrolysis of hydroquinone. Both cases are accompanied by the reduction of V(4+) to V(3+) via single-crystal-to-single-crystal transformations. The products were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis, infrared spectroscopy, and electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy. PMID:25607937

Implementation of Ada protocols on Mil-STD-1553 B data bus  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Standardization activity of data communication in avionic systems started in 1968 for the purpose of total system integration and the elimination of heavy wire bundles carrying signals between various subassemblies. The growing complexity of avionic systems is straining the capabilities of MIL-STD-1553 B (first issued in 1973), but a much greater challenge to it is posed by Ada, the standard language adopted for real-time, computer embedded-systems. Hardware implementation of Ada communication protocols in a contention/token bus or token ring network is proposed. However, during the transition period when the current command/response multiplex data bus is still flourishing and the development environment for distributed multi-computer Ada systems is as yet lacking, a temporary accomodation of the standard language with the standard bus could be very useful and even highly desirable. By concentrating all status informtion and decisions at the bus controller, it was found to be possible to construct an elegant and efficient harware impelementation of the Ada protocols at the bus interface. This solution is discussed.

Ni-Pt nanoparticles growing on metal organic frameworks (MIL-96) with enhanced catalytic activity for hydrogen generation from hydrazine at room temperature.  

PubMed

Well-dispersed bimetallic Ni-Pt nanoparticles (NPs) with different compositions have been successfully grown on the MIL-96 by a simple liquid impregnation method using NaBH4 as the reducing agent. Powder X-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, N2 adsorption-desorption, and inductively coupled plasma-atomic emission spectroscopy measurements were employed to characterize the NiPt/MIL-96. Catalytic activity of NiPt/MIL-96 catalysts was tested in the hydrogen generation from the aqueous alkaline solution of hydrazine at room temperature. These catalysts are composition dependent on their catalytic activity, while Ni64Pt36/MIL-96 exhibits the highest catalytic activity among all the catalysts tested, with a turnover frequency value of 114.3 h(-1) and 100% hydrogen selectivity. This excellent catalytic performance might be due to the synergistic effect of the MIL-96 support and NiPt NPs, while NiPt NPs supported on other conventional supports, such as SiO2, carbon black, ?-Al2O3, poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP), and the physical mixture of NiPt and MIL-96, all of them exhibit inferior catalytic activity compared to that of NiPt/MIL-96.

A bifunctional MOF catalyst containing coordinatively unsaturated Cr(3+) sites and palladium nanoparticles (Pd@MIL-101) has been used for the cyclization of citronellal to isopulegol and for the one-pot tandem isomerization/hydrogenation of citronellal to menthol. The MOF was found to be stable under the reaction conditions used, and the results obtained indicate that the performance of this bifunctional solid catalyst is comparable with other state-of-the-art materials for the tandem reaction: Full citronellal conversion was attained over Pd@MIL-101 in 18 h, with 86% selectivity to menthols and a diastereoselectivity of 81% to the desired (-)-menthol, while up to 30 h were necessary for attaining similar values over Ir/H-beta under analogous reaction conditions.

Dispersive Micro-Solid-Phase Extraction of Herbicides in Vegetable Oil with Metal-Organic Framework MIL-101.  

PubMed

Dispersive microsolid-phase extraction based on metal-organic framework has been developed and applied to the extraction of triazine and phenylurea herbicides in vegetable oils in this work. The herbicides were directly extracted with MIL-101 from diluted vegetables oils without any further cleanup. The separation and determination of herbicides were carried out on high performance liquid chromatography. The effects of experimental parameters, including volume ratio of n-hexane to oil sample, mass of MIL-101, extraction time, centrifugation time, eluting solvent, and elution time were investigated. The Student's t test was applied to evaluate the selected experimental conditions. The limits of detection for the herbicides ranged from 0.585 to 1.04 ?g/L. The recoveries of the herbicides ranged from 87.3 to 107%. Our results showed that the present method is rapid, simple, and effective for extracting herbicides in vegetable oils. PMID:25665636

Interaction of methanol with the flexible metal-organic framework MIL-53(Fe) observed by inelastic neutron scattering  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In situ powder X-ray diffraction and thermogravimetry show that the iron(III) carboxylate material MIL-53(Fe) expands in two steps upon exposure to methanol vapour to give a ‘half open’ phase and then a fully expanded structure; these correspond to the uptake of one and two molar equivalents of methanol, respectively. This knowledge allows interpretation of inelastic neutron scattering (INS) spectra, measured using TOSCA at ISIS, of the solid loaded with various amounts of water, methanol or d3-methanol (CD3OH), aided also by DFT simulation of INS spectra of the analogous MIL-53(Al) structure. The key signature of the expansion and contraction of the structure is the shift of bands in the 400 cm-1 region: these are assigned as due to the librations of the terephthalate rings, involving motions that result in distortion of the aromatic ring and a rocking motion of the aromatic ring about the bonds to the carboxylate groups.

Multiphysics Modeling and Simulations of Mil A46100 Armor-Grade Martensitic Steel Gas Metal Arc Welding Process  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A multiphysics computational model has been developed for the conventional Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) joining process and used to analyze butt-welding of MIL A46100, a prototypical high-hardness armor martensitic steel. The model consists of five distinct modules, each covering a specific aspect of the GMAW process, i.e., (a) dynamics of welding-gun behavior; (b) heat transfer from the electric arc and mass transfer from the electrode to the weld; (c) development of thermal and mechanical fields during the GMAW process; (d) the associated evolution and spatial distribution of the material microstructure throughout the weld region; and (e) the final spatial distribution of the as-welded material properties. To make the newly developed GMAW process model applicable to MIL A46100, the basic physical-metallurgy concepts and principles for this material have to be investigated and properly accounted for/modeled. The newly developed GMAW process model enables establishment of the relationship between the GMAW process parameters (e.g., open circuit voltage, welding current, electrode diameter, electrode-tip/weld distance, filler-metal feed speed, and gun travel speed), workpiece material chemistry, and the spatial distribution of as-welded material microstructure and properties. The predictions of the present GMAW model pertaining to the spatial distribution of the material microstructure and properties within the MIL A46100 weld region are found to be consistent with general expectations and prior observations.

Fabrication of metal-organic framework MIL-88B films on stainless steel fibers for solid-phase microextraction of polychlorinated biphenyls.  

PubMed

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have received considerable attention as novel sorbents for sample preparation due to their fascinating structures and functionalities such as large surface area, good thermal stability, and uniform structured nanoscale cavities. Here, we report the application of a thermal and solvent stable MOF MIL-88B with nanosized bipyramidal cages and large surface area for solid-phase microextraction (SPME) of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs). Novel MIL-88B coated fiber was fabricated via an in situ hydrothermal growth of MIL-88B film on etched stainless steel fiber. The MIL-88B coated fiber gave large enhancement factors (757-2243), low detection limits (0.45-1.32ngL(-1)), and good linearity (5-200ngL(-1)) for PCBs. The relative standard deviation (RSD) for six replicate extractions of PCBs at 100ngL(-1) on MIL-88B coated fiber ranged from 4.2% to 8.7%. The recoveries for spiked PCBs (10ngL(-1)) in water and soil samples were in the range of 79.7-103.2%. Besides, the MIL-88B coated fiber was stable enough for 150 extraction cycles without significant loss of extraction efficiency. The developed method was successfully applied to the determination of PCBs in water samples and soil samples. PMID:24569006

A combined electron microprobe (EMP) and Raman spectroscopic study of the alteration products in Martian meteorite MIL 03346  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We examine the secondary alteration products in MIL 03346 using Raman spectroscopic and electron microprobe traverses. Discussion focuses on the single olivine in ,177 supplemented with observations from ,168 and ,169. Traverses start at the rim and progress into the interior. Dark brown, nearly opaque, laihunite [Fe2+Fe3+2(SiO4)2] is present as overgrowths, and 20-50 µm veins of reddish-brown stilpnomelane [(K,Na,Ca)4(Ti0.1,Al2.3,Fe3+35.5,Mn0.8,Mg9.3) (Si63Al9)(O,OH)206?n(H2O)] occur inside the olivine. Stilpnomelane crosscuts and postdates the laihunite; veins are in sharp contact with the host olivine but lined by ~5 µm films of jarosite [KFe3+3(SO4)2(OH)6] from a later generation of alteration. An interstitial laihunite also hosts stilpnomelane. The most recent secondary phases are gypsum and bassanite in our X-ray maps of ,168 and ,169. Ca-sulfates were not observed in X-ray maps of ,177 but were detected in our Raman point count. All sulfates are believed to be Martian. The groundmass of MIL indicates rapid cooling from elevated temperatures with fO2 near QFM. Reports of laihunite synthesis by olivine oxidation at elevated temperatures (100-800°C) suggest the overgrowths formed during consolidation. In terrestrial rocks, stilpnomelane is a product of late diagenesis to garnet-grade metamorphism. In MIL, stilpnomelane appears to be a secondary phase formed at the lower end of this stability range, at conditions akin to diagenesis. Raman spectra indicate that the stilpnomelane, jarosite, and Ca-sulfates are hydrated. The stilpnomelane contains Cl- and was followed by jarosite, a product of acid alteration, and the deposition of Ca-sulfates and halide salts from more neutral chloride solutions.

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The structure of a new flying and ground handling qualities specification for military rotorcraft is presented. This preliminary specification structure is intended to evolve into a replacement for specification MIL-H-8501A. The new structure is designed to accommodate a variety of rotorcraft types, mission flight phases, flight envelopes, and flight environmental characteristics and to provide criteria for three levels of flying qualities, a systematic treatment of failures and reliability, both conventional and multiaxis controllers, and external vision aids which may also incorporate synthetic display content. Existing and new criteria were incorporated into the new structure wherever they could be substantiated.

Sm-Nd and Rb-Sr Ages for MIL 05035: Implications for Surface and Mantle Sources  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Sm-Nd and Rb-Sr ages and also the initial Nd and Sr isotopic compositions of MIL 05035 are the same as those of A-881757. Comparing the radiometric ages of these meteorites to lunar surface ages as modeled from crater size-frequency distributions as well as the TiO2 abundances and initial Sr-isotopic compositions of other basalts places their likely place of origin as within the Australe or Humboldtianum basins. If so, a fundamental west-east lunar asymmetry in compositional and isotopic parameters that likely is due to the PKT is implied.

Chelating Agent-Free, Vapor-Assisted Crystallization Method to Synthesize Hierarchical Microporous/Mesoporous MIL-125 (Ti).  

PubMed

Titanium-based microporous heterogeneous catalysts are widely studied but are often limited by the accessibility of reactants to active sites. Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), such as MIL-125 (Ti), exhibit enhanced surface areas due to their high intrinsic microporosity, but the pore diameters of most microporous MOFs are often too small to allow for the diffusion of larger reactants (>7 Ĺ) relevant to petroleum and biomass upgrading. In this work, hierarchical microporous MIL-125 exhibiting significantly enhanced interparticle mesoporosity was synthesized using a chelating-free, vapor-assisted crystallization method. The resulting hierarchical MOF was examined as an active catalyst for the oxidation of dibenzothiophene (DBT) with tert-butyl hydroperoxide and outperformed the solely microporous analogue. This was attributed to greater access of the substrate to surface active sites, as the pores in the microporous analogues were of inadequate size to accommodate DBT. Moreover, thiophene adsorption studies suggested the mesoporous MOF contained larger amounts of unsaturated metal sites that could enhance the observed catalytic activity. PMID:25695286

Meteorite Dunite Breccia MIL 03443: A Probable Crustal Cumulate Closely Related to Diogenites from the HED Parent Asteroid  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

There are numerous types of differentiated meteorites, but most represent either the crusts or cores of their parent asteroids. Ureilites, olivine-pyroxene-graphite rocks, are exceptions; they are mantle restites [1]. Dunite is expected to be a common mantle lithology in differentiated asteroids. In particular, models of the eucrite parent asteroid contain large volumes of dunite mantle [2-4]. Yet dunites are very rare among meteorites, and none are known associated with the howardite, eucrite, diogenite (HED) suite. Spectroscopic measurements of 4 Vesta, the probable HED parent asteroid, show one region with an olivine signature [5] although the surface is dominated by basaltic and orthopyroxenitic material equated with eucrites and diogenites [6]. One might expect that a small number of dunitic or olivine-rich meteorites might be delivered along with the HED suite. The 46 gram meteoritic dunite MIL 03443 (Fig. 1) was recovered from the Miller Range ice field of Antarctica. This meteorite was tentatively classified as a mesosiderite because large, dunitic clasts are found in this type of meteorite, but it was noted that MIL 03443 could represent a dunite sample of the HED suite [7]. Here I will present a preliminary petrologic study of two thin sections of this meteorite.

Preparation and characterization of metal-organic framework MIL-101(Cr)-coated solid-phase microextraction fiber.  

PubMed

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have received great attention as novel sorbents due to their fascinating structures and intriguing potential applications in various fields. In this work, a MIL-101(Cr)-coated solid-phase microextraction (SPME) fiber was fabricated by a simple direct coating method and applied to the determination of volatile compounds (BTEX, benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, m-xylene and o-xylene) and semi-volatile compounds (PAHs, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons) from water samples. The extraction and desorption conditions of headspace SPME (HS-SPME) were optimized. Under the optimized conditions, the established methods exhibited excellent extraction performance. Good precision (<7.7%) and low detection limits (0.32-1.7 ng L(-1) and 0.12-2.1 ng L(-1) for BTEX and PAHs, respectively) were achieved. In addition, the MIL-101(Cr)-coated fiber possessed good thermal stability, and the fiber can be reused over 150 times. The fiber was successfully applied to the analysis of BTEX and PAHs in river water by coupling with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The analytes at low concentrations (1.7 and 10 ng L(-1)) were detected, and the recoveries obtained with the spiked river water samples were in the range of 80.0-113% and 84.8-106% for BTEX and PAHs, respectively, which demonstrated the applicability of the self-made fiber.

Description of a MIL-STD-1553B Data Bus Ada Driver for the LeRC EPS Testbed  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

This document describes the software designed to provide communication between control computers in the NASA Lewis Research Center Electrical Power System Testbed using MIL-STD-1553B. The software drivers are coded in the Ada programming language and were developed on a MSDOS-based computer workstation. The Electrical Power System (EPS) Testbed is a reduced-scale prototype space station electrical power system. The power system manages and distributes electrical power from the sources (batteries or photovoltaic arrays) to the end-user loads. The electrical system primary operates at 120 volts DC, and the secondary system operates at 28 volts DC. The devices which direct the flow of electrical power are controlled by a network of six control computers. Data and control messages are passed between the computers using the MIL-STD-1553B network. One of the computers, the Power Management Controller (PMC), controls the primary power distribution and another, the Load Management Controller (LMC), controls the secondary power distribution. Each of these computers communicates with two other computers which act as subsidiary controllers. These subsidiary controllers are, in turn, connected to the devices which directly control the flow of electrical power.

Radiative cooling test facility and performance evaluation of 4-MIL aluminized polyvinyl fluoride and white-paint surfaces  

SciTech Connect

A test facility designed to measure the amount of radiative cooling a specific material or assembly of materials will produce when exposed to the sky is described. Emphasis is placed upon assemblies which are specifically designed to produce radiative cooling and which therefore offer promise for the reduction of temperatures and/or humidities in occupied spaces. The hardware and software used to operate the facility are documented and the results of the first comprehensive experiments are presented. A microcomputer-based control/data acquisition system was employed to study the performance of two prototype radiator surfaces: 4-mil aluminized polyvinyl fluoride (PVF) and white painted surfaces set below polyethylene windscreens. The cooling rates for materials tested were determined and can be approximated by an equation (given). A computer model developed to simulate the cooling process is presented. (MCW)

Separation of CO2-CH4 mixtures in the mesoporous MIL-100(Cr) MOF: experimental and modelling approaches.  

PubMed

Carbon dioxide is the main undesirable compound present in raw natural gas and biogas. Physisorption based adsorption processes such as pressure swing adsorption (PSA) are one of the solutions to selectively adsorb CO(2) from CH(4). Some hybrid crystalline porous materials that belong to the family of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) show larger CO(2) adsorption capacity compared to the usual industrial adsorbents, such as zeolites and most activated carbons, which makes them potentially promising for such applications. However, their selectivity values have been most often determined using only single gas adsorption measurements combined with simple macroscopic thermodynamic models or by means of molecular simulations based on generic forcefields. The transfer of this systematic approach to all MOFs, whatever their complex physico-chemical features, needs to be considered with caution. In contrast, direct co-adsorption measurements collected on these new materials are still scarce. The aim of this study is to perform a complete analysis of the CO(2)-CH(4) co-adsorption in the mesoporous MIL-100(Cr) MOF (MIL stands for Materials from Institut Lavoisier) by means of a synergic combination of outstanding experimental and modelling tools. This solid has been chosen both for its fundamental interests, given its very large CO(2) adsorption capacities and its complexity with a combination of micropores and mesopores and the existence of unsaturated accessible metal sites. The predictions obtained by means of Grand Canonical Monte Carlo simulations based on generic forcefields as well as macroscopic thermodynamic (IAST, RAST) models will be compared to direct the co-adsorption experimental data (breakthrough curve and volumetric measurements).

Ballistic-Failure Mechanisms in Gas Metal Arc Welds of Mil A46100 Armor-Grade Steel: A Computational Investigation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

In our recent work, a multi-physics computational model for the conventional gas metal arc welding (GMAW) joining process was introduced. The model is of a modular type and comprises five modules, each designed to handle a specific aspect of the GMAW process, i.e.: (i) electro-dynamics of the welding-gun; (ii) radiation-/convection-controlled heat transfer from the electric-arc to the workpiece and mass transfer from the filler-metal consumable electrode to the weld; (iii) prediction of the temporal evolution and the spatial distribution of thermal and mechanical fields within the weld region during the GMAW joining process; (iv) the resulting temporal evolution and spatial distribution of the material microstructure throughout the weld region; and (v) spatial distribution of the as-welded material mechanical properties. In the present work, the GMAW process model has been upgraded with respect to its predictive capabilities regarding the spatial distribution of the mechanical properties controlling the ballistic-limit (i.e., penetration-resistance) of the weld. The model is upgraded through the introduction of the sixth module in the present work in recognition of the fact that in thick steel GMAW weldments, the overall ballistic performance of the armor may become controlled by the (often inferior) ballistic limits of its weld (fusion and heat-affected) zones. To demonstrate the utility of the upgraded GMAW process model, it is next applied to the case of butt-welding of a prototypical high-hardness armor-grade martensitic steel, MIL A46100. The model predictions concerning the spatial distribution of the material microstructure and ballistic-limit-controlling mechanical properties within the MIL A46100 butt-weld are found to be consistent with prior observations and general expectations.

MIL-53 frameworks in mixed-matrix membranes and cross-linked ZIF-8/matrimidRTM mixed-matrix membranes for gas separation  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) are hybrid materials consisting of two phases: an inorganic nanoscale particle as the discrete phase, and a polymeric material as the continuous phase. The incorporation of inorganic particles into a polymer can improve a membrane's overall separation performance. MMMs incorporating metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have exhibited promising gas separation performance. MOFs are inorganic-organic crystals constructed from metal ions that are linked by polydentate ligands. Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are a sub-class of MOFs that uses imidazole analogues as ligands. In these studies, the MOF MIL-53 and ZIF-8 were successfully synthesized and characterized by a battery of analytical techniques including XRD, FTIR, TGA, N2 adsorption, and SEM, and were incorporated into MMMs with Matrimid® polymer. In chapter 1, MIL-53/Matrimid® MMMs containing MIL-53-ht (open-pore form) were fabricated, characterized and obtained permeability values higher than Matrimid®. Selectivities decreased for the gas pairs of O2/N2, H2/O2, H2/CO2, and H2/N2. However, slight enhancement of the CO2/CH4 selectivity was observed for the MIL-53-ht/Matrimid® compared to that of Matrimid ®. The MIL-53-as/Matrimid® MMM also showed an increase in permeability as well as an increase in selectivity for the gas pairs H2/O2, CO2/CH4, H 2/CH4, and H2/N2. The MIL-53-lt/Matrimid ® MMM showed that it does not retain its closed-pore form in the MMM due to chloroform solvent opening the pores and eventually polymer confinement of the MIL 53 framework in the MMM. In chapter 2, easy synthesis and fabrication of the MIL-53 MOF membrane was realized using a seeded growth method with a commercially available alumina TLC plate. The MOF membrane had a well-intergrown and dense layer of MIL-53 crystals on the surface of the alumina substrate. The MIL-53 crystals were also converted to the MIL-53-lt (closed-pore form) after heating at 330 °C and cooling to room temperature, which confirms the breathing ability of the MOF. In chapter 3, a comprehensive approach for membrane materials in order to achieve high productivity and separation efficiency was applied by incorporating additives into polymers and cross-linking the resulting MMM that could lead to increase and simultaneous selectivity enhancement. ZIF-8 was used as an additive in these MMMs. ZIF-8 can readily absorb small gases such, as H 2 and CO2 due to its 3.4 Ĺ pore aperture. ZIF-8/Matrimid ® MMMs were fabricated with a spin-coated Matrimid® layer on one surface and cross-linked with EDA vapor. This membrane morphology could lead to enhanced selectivities due to the cross-linked layer, at the same time maintain the high permeability of the bulk MMM. The permeabilities decreased for the cross-linked, spin-coated Matrimid® ZIF-8/Matrimid ® MMMs. However, there was enhancement in selectivities for H 2/CO2, H2/N2, H2/O 2 and H2/CH4 gas pairs, which can be due to reduction of diffusive pathways for larger gas molecules. Compared to uncross-linked ZIF-8/Matrimid® MMMs, the cross-linked, spin-coated Matrimid ® ZIF-8/Matrimid® MMMs lie close to the Robeson's upper bound for H2/CO2 suggesting its potential for this gas pair separation.

MIL-53(Fe) as a highly efficient bifunctional photocatalyst for the simultaneous reduction of Cr(VI) and oxidation of dyes.  

PubMed

A bifunctional photocatalyst-Fe-benzenedicarboxylate (MIL-53(Fe)) has been synthesized successfully via a facile solvothermal method. The resulting MIL-53(Fe) photocatalyst exhibited an excellent visible light (?? 420nm) photocatalytic activity for the reduction of Cr(VI), the reduction rate have reached about 100% after 40min of visible light irradiation, which has been more efficient than that of N-doped TiO2 (85%) under identical experimental conditions. Further experimental results have revealed that the photocatalytic activity of MIL-53(Fe) for the reduction of Cr(VI) can be drastically affected by the pH value of the reaction solution, the hole scavenger and atmosphere. Moreover, MIL-53(Fe) has exhibited considerable photocatalytic activity in the mixed systems (Cr(VI)/dyes). After 6h of visible light illumination, the reduction ratio of Cr(VI) and the degradation ratio of dyes have been exceed 60% and 80%, respectively. More significantly, the synergistic effect can also be found during the process of photocatalytic treatment of Cr(VI) contained wastewater under the same photocatalytic reaction conditions, which makes it a potential candidate for environmental restoration. Finally, a possible reaction mechanism has also been investigated in detail. PMID:25677473

Metal-organic framework MIL-100(Fe) as the stationary phase for both normal-phase and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography.  

PubMed

Metal-organic framework MIL-100(Fe) was explored as a novel stationary phase for both normal-phase and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography. Two groups of analytes (benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene, naphthalene and 1-chloronaphthalene; aniline, acetanilide, 2-nitroaniline and 1-naphthylamine) were used to test the separation performance of MIL-100(Fe) in the reverse-phase mode, while the isomers of chloroaniline or toluidine were employed to evaluate its performance in the normal-phase mode. The MIL-100(Fe) packed column gave a baseline separation of all the tested analytes with good precision. The separation was controlled by negative enthalpy change and entropy change in the reverse-phase mode, but positive enthalpy change and entropy change in the normal-phase mode. The relative standard deviations of retention time, peak area, peak height, and half peak width for eleven replicate separations of the tested analytes were 0.2-0.7%, 0.5-3.6%, 0.6-2.3% and 0.8-1.7%, respectively. The mesoporous cages, accessible windows, excellent chemical and solvent stability, metal active sites and aromatic pore walls make MIL-100(Fe) a good candidate as a novel stationary phase for both normal-phase and reverse-phase high performance liquid chromatography.

Gas Metal Arc Welding Process Modeling and Prediction of Weld Microstructure in MIL A46100 Armor-Grade Martensitic Steel  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A conventional gas metal arc welding (GMAW) butt-joining process has been modeled using a two-way fully coupled, transient, thermal-mechanical finite-element procedure. To achieve two-way thermal-mechanical coupling, the work of plastic deformation resulting from potentially high thermal stresses is allowed to be dissipated in the form of heat, and the mechanical material model of the workpiece and the weld is made temperature dependent. Heat losses from the deposited filler-metal are accounted for by considering conduction to the adjoining workpieces as well as natural convection and radiation to the surroundings. The newly constructed GMAW process model is then applied, in conjunction with the basic material physical-metallurgy, to a prototypical high-hardness armor martensitic steel (MIL A46100). The main outcome of this procedure is the prediction of the spatial distribution of various crystalline phases within the weld and the heat-affected zone regions, as a function of the GMAW process parameters. The newly developed GMAW process model is validated by comparing its predictions with available open-literature experimental and computational data.

Synthesis and characterisation of MIL-43 and MIL-44, two new layered templated tetravalent phosphates: Zr(PO 4) 2·N 2C 2H 10 and Ti 2(PO 4) 2(HPO 4) 2·N 2C 2H 10  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Zr(PO 4) 2·N 2C 2H 10 or MIL-43 and Ti 2(PO 4) 2(HPO 4) 2·N 2C 2H 10 or MIL-44 were prepared hydrothermally (20 or 4 days, 473 or 453 K, respectively, autogenous pressure) in the presence of ethylenediamine. Their structures have been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. MIL-43 crystallises in the monoclinic space group P2 1 (No. 4) with a=11.0722(1), b=10.6631(1), c=16.4642(2) Ĺ, ?=95.991(1)° and V=1933.21(3) Ĺ 3 (final agreement factors R1( F)=0.0466, wR2( F2)=0.1096). Due to the very poor quality of the crystal, only an approached structure of MIL-44 is given; it crystallises in the triclinic space group P1 (No. 1) with a=5.0845(4), b=6.3097(5), c=12.6111(9) Ĺ, ?=77.454(1), ?=78.926(2), ?=89.986(1)° and V=387.21(5) Ĺ 3. Both solids are two-dimensional and are the ion-exchanged equivalents of the layered solids ?ZrP and ?TiP. Inorganic sheets of MIL-43 are built up from pseudo-hexagonal arrays of ZrO 6 octahedra surrounded by PO 4 tetrahedra pointing their terminal oxygen alternatively up and down at the interlayer space. Layers of MIL-44 are made of double ?(Ti?O?P)? chains built from TiO 6 octahedra and PO 4 tetrahedra on which HPO 4 groups are grafted pointing towards the interlayer space. In both cases, diprotonated organic templates, located between the layers, interact with terminal phosphate groups and ensure via hydrogen bonds the stability of the structures.

Highly selective adsorption and separation of aniline/phenol from aqueous solutions by microporous MIL-53(Al): a combined experimental and computational study.  

PubMed

Experimental measurements have been combined with molecular simulations to investigate the adsorption and separation of aniline/phenol mixtures from aqueous solutions by the aluminum terephthalate MIL-53. The results show that the framework flexibility of this material plays a crucial role in the adsorption process and thus can greatly enhance the separation of the aniline/phenol mixture from their solutions. Compared with the conventional adsorbents, MIL-53(Al) shows the best performance for such systems of interest, from the points of view of both the adsorption capacities and the selectivities for aniline. The findings obtained in this work may facilitate more investigations in connection with the application of flexible nanoporous materials for the separation of organic compounds from liquid-phase environments.

Moessbauer and Electron Microprobe Studies of Density Separates of Martian Nakhlite Mil03346: Implications for Interpretation of Moessbauer Spectra Acquired by the Mars Exploration Rovers  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Martian meteorite MIL03346 is described as an augite-rich cumulate rock with approx.80%, approx.3%, and approx.21% modal phase proportions of augite (CPX), olivine and glassy mesostasis, respectively, and is classified as a nakhlite [1]. The Mossbauer spectrum for whole rock (WR) MIL 03346 is unusual for Martian meteorites in that it has a distinct magnetite subspectrum (7% subspectral area) [2]. The meteorite also has products of pre-terrestrial aqueous alteration ("iddingsite") that is associated primarily with the basaltic glass and olivine. The Mossbauer spectrometers on the Mars Exploration Rovers have measured the Fe oxidation state and the Fe mineralogical composition of rocks and soils on the planet s surface since their landing in Gusev Crater and Meridiani Planum in January, 2004 [3,4]. The MIL 03346 meteorite provides an opportunity to "ground truth" or refine Fe phase identifications. This is particularly the case for the so-called "nanophase ferric oxide" (npOx) component. NpOx is a generic name for a ferric rich product of oxidative alteration. On Earth, where we can take samples apart and study individual phases, examples of npOx include ferrihydrite, schwertmannite, akagaaneite, and superparamagnetic (small particle) goethite and hematite. It is also possible for ferric iron to be associated to some unknown extent with igneous phases like pyroxene. We report here an electron microprobe (EMPA) and Moessbauer (MB) study of density separates of MIL 03346. The same separates were used for isotopic studies by [5]. Experimental techniques are described by [6,7].

A novel dispersive solid-phase extraction method using metal-organic framework MIL-101 as the adsorbent for the analysis of benzophenones in toner.  

PubMed

Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been paid widespread attention in the field of adsorption and separation materials due to its porosity, large specific surface area, unsaturated metal-ligand sites and structural diversity. In this study, the green powder MIL-101 was synthesized and used for the extraction of benzophenone, 2,4-dihydroxybenzophenone and 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-benzophenone from toner samples for the first time. The synthesized MIL-101 was characterized by X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, thermogravimetry and nitrogen adsorption porosimetry. The MIL-101 was applied as the dispersive solid phase extraction (DSPE) adsorbent for the extraction and preconcentration of benzophenone, 2,4-dihydroxybenzophenone and 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-benzophenone from toner samples. The extraction conditions were investigated. Under the optimized conditions, a DSPE-HPLC method for the determination of benzophenone, 2,4-dihydroxybenzophenone and 2-hydroxy-4-methoxy-benzophenone was developed. The method yielded a linear calibration curve in the concentration ranges from 4.0 to 3500 ?g L(-1) for the three analytes in toner samples with regression coefficients (r(2)) of 0.9992, 0.9999 and 0.9990, respectively. Limits of detection were 1.2, 1.2 and 0.9 ?g L(-1), respectively. Both the intra-day and inter-day precisions (RSDs) were <10%. PMID:25476369

Programming MOFs for water sorption: amino-functionalized MIL-125 and UiO-66 for heat transformation and heat storage applications.  

PubMed

Sorption-based heat transformation and storage appliances are very promising for utilizing solar heat and waste heat in cooling or heating applications. The economic and ecological efficiency of sorption-based heat transformation depends on the availability of suitable hydrophilic and hydrothermally stable sorption materials. We investigated the feasibility of using the metal-organic frameworks UiO-66(Zr), UiO-67(Zr), H2N-UiO-66(Zr) and H2N-MIL-125(Ti) as sorption materials in heat transformations by means of volumetric water adsorption measurements, determination of the heat of adsorption and a 40-cycle ad/desorption stress test. The amino-modified compounds H2N-UiO-66 and H2N-MIL-125 feature high heat of adsorption (89.5 and 56.0 kJ mol(-1), respectively) and a very promising H2O adsorption isotherm due to their enhanced hydrophilicity. For H2N-MIL-125 the very steep rise of the H2O adsorption isotherm in the 0.1 < p/p0 < 0.2 region is especially beneficial for the intended heat pump application. PMID:23864023

Mixed-metal MIL-100(Sc,M) (M=Al, Cr, Fe) for Lewis acid catalysis and tandem C-C bond formation and alcohol oxidation.  

PubMed

The trivalent metal cations Al(3+) , Cr(3+) , and Fe(3+) were each introduced, together with Sc(3+) , into MIL-100(Sc,M) solid solutions (M=Al, Cr, Fe) by direct synthesis. The substitution has been confirmed by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD) and solid-state NMR, UV/Vis, and X-ray absorption (XAS) spectroscopy. Mixed Sc/Fe MIL-100 samples were prepared in which part of the Fe is present as ?-Fe2 O3 nanoparticles within the mesoporous cages of the MOF, as shown by XAS, TGA, and PXRD. The catalytic activity of the mixed-metal catalysts in Lewis acid catalysed Friedel-Crafts additions increases with the amount of Sc present, with the attenuating effect of the second metal decreasing in the order Al>Fe>Cr. Mixed-metal Sc,Fe materials give acceptable activity: 40?% Fe incorporation only results in a 20?% decrease in activity over the same reaction time and pure product can still be obtained and filtered off after extended reaction times. Supported ?-Fe2 O3 nanoparticles were also active Lewis acid species, although less active than Sc(3+) in trimer sites. The incorporation of Fe(3+) into MIL-100(Sc) imparts activity for oxidation catalysis and tandem catalytic processes (Lewis acid+oxidation) that make use of both catalytically active framework Sc(3+) and Fe(3+) . A procedure for using these mixed-metal heterogeneous catalysts has been developed for making ketones from (hetero)aromatics and a hemiacetal. PMID:25348903

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

MIL 03346 is one of the most mesostasis-rich nakhlites [1] and thought to have equilibrated at oxygen fugacities near the fayalite-magnetite-quartz oxygen (FMQ) buffer ([2,3]). Studies of FeTi oxides in nakhlites have led to additional constraints on their equilibration temperatures and fO2s [4,5,6,7]. Comparison of these results to fO2s calculated for shergottites indicates that nakhlites are among the most oxidized samples from the martian meteorite suite [2]. The mesostasis of MIL 03346 contains skeletal titanomagnetite. Several scientists noticed several years ago (e.g. [8]) that this titanomagnetite contains very fine oxidation-driven exsolution lamellae (Figure 1). However, the lamellae are so small that they cannot be characterized by electron microprobe analysis (EMPA). Here we select several areas for focused ion beam (FIB) extraction, prepare transmission electron microscopy (TEM) foils, and identify and analyze the lamellae using TEM at the Johnson Space Center (JSC). The resulting analyses are combined with previous work on nakhlites to interpret the thermal and oxidation history of this meteorite group.

Correlation of Gas Permeability in a Metal-Organic Framework MIL-101(Cr)–Polysulfone Mixed-Matrix Membrane with Free Volume Measurements by Positron Annihilation Lifetime Spectroscopy (PALS)  

PubMed Central

Hydrothermally stable particles of the metal-organic framework MIL-101(Cr) were incorporated into a polysulfone (PSF) matrix to produce mixed-matrix or composite membranes with excellent dispersion of MIL-101 particles and good adhesion within the polymer matrix. Pure gas (O2, N2, CO2 and CH4) permeation tests showed a significant increase of gas permeabilities of the mixed-matrix membranes without any loss in selectivity. Positron annihilation lifetime spectroscopy (PALS) indicated that the increased gas permeability is due to the free volume in the PSF polymer and the added large free volume inside the MIL-101 particles. The trend of the gas transport properties of the composite membranes could be reproduced by a Maxwell model. PMID:24957061

Optimization of Gas Metal Arc Welding (GMAW) Process for Maximum Ballistic Limit in MIL A46100 Steel Welded All-Metal Armor  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Our recently developed multi-physics computational model for the conventional gas metal arc welding (GMAW) joining process has been upgraded with respect to its predictive capabilities regarding the process optimization for the attainment of maximum ballistic limit within the weld. The original model consists of six modules, each dedicated to handling a specific aspect of the GMAW process, i.e., (a) electro-dynamics of the welding gun; (b) radiation-/convection-controlled heat transfer from the electric arc to the workpiece and mass transfer from the filler metal consumable electrode to the weld; (c) prediction of the temporal evolution and the spatial distribution of thermal and mechanical fields within the weld region during the GMAW joining process; (d) the resulting temporal evolution and spatial distribution of the material microstructure throughout the weld region; (e) spatial distribution of the as-welded material mechanical properties; and (f) spatial distribution of the material ballistic limit. In the present work, the model is upgraded through the introduction of the seventh module in recognition of the fact that identification of the optimum GMAW process parameters relative to the attainment of the maximum ballistic limit within the weld region entails the use of advanced optimization and statistical sensitivity analysis methods and tools. The upgraded GMAW process model is next applied to the case of butt welding of MIL A46100 (a prototypical high-hardness armor-grade martensitic steel) workpieces using filler metal electrodes made of the same material. The predictions of the upgraded GMAW process model pertaining to the spatial distribution of the material microstructure and ballistic limit-controlling mechanical properties within the MIL A46100 butt weld are found to be consistent with general expectations and prior observations.

Regulation of expression of mouse interferon-induced transmembrane protein like gene-3, Ifitm3 (mil-1, fragilis), in germ cells.  

PubMed

Mouse interferon-induced transmembrane protein (IFITM) gene, Ifitm3 (previously known as mil-1 and fragilis), is expressed in primordial germ cells (PGCs), in their precursors, and in germ cells of the fetal gonads (Saitou et al. [2002] Nature 418:293-300; Tanaka and Matsui [2002] Mech Dev 119S:S261-S267). By examining the expression of green fluorescent protein transgene under the control of DNA sequences flanking exon 1, we have identified domains that direct Ifitm3 transcription in PGCs and their precursors in gastrula stage and 13.5 days post coitum embryos. Germ cell-specific expression is achieved by the activity of a consensus element unique to the Ifitm genes, which may act to suppress Ifitm3 expression in somatic tissues. The lack of any influence of the interferon-stimulable response elements on transgene expression in the germ-line suggests that interferon-mediated response is not critical for activating Ifitm3.

IFITM/Mil/fragilis family proteins IFITM1 and IFITM3 play distinct roles in mouse primordial germ cell homing and repulsion.  

PubMed

The family of interferon-induced transmembrane protein (Ifitm/mil/fragilis) genes encodes cell surface proteins that may modulate cell adhesion and influence cell differentiation. Mouse Ifitm1 and -3, which are expressed in primordial germ cells (PGCs), are implicated to have roles in germ cell development, but the specific functions have been unclear. Our results show that Ifitm1 activity is required for PGC transit from the mesoderm into the endoderm, and that it appears to act via a repulsive mechanism, such that PGCs avoid Ifitm1-expressing tissues. In contrast, Ifitm3, which is expressed in migratory PGCs, is sufficient to confer autonomous PGC-like homing properties to somatic cells. These guidance activities are mediated by the N-terminal extracellular domain of the specific IFITM, which cannot be substituted by that of another family member. Complex homo- and/or heterotypic intercellular interactions among various IFITMs in PGCs and neighboring cells may underpin coordinated germ cell guidance in mice. PMID:16326387

Safety Planning for Military (SAFE MIL): rationale, design, and safety considerations of a randomized controlled trial to reduce suicide risk among psychiatric inpatients.  

PubMed

Mental health related hospitalizations and suicide are both significant public health problems within the United States Department of Defense (DoD). To date, few evidence-based suicide prevention programs have been developed for delivery to military personnel and family members admitted for psychiatric inpatient care due to suicidal self-directed violence. This paper describes the rationale and detailed methodology for a study called Safety Planning for Military (SAFE MIL) which involves a randomized controlled trial (RCT) at the largest military treatment facility in the United States. The purpose of this study is to test the efficacy of a brief, readily accessible, and personalized treatment called the Safety Planning Intervention (Stanley and Brown, 2012). Primary outcomes, measured by blinded assessors at one and six months following psychiatric discharge, include suicide ideation, suicide-related coping, and attitudes toward help seeking. Additionally, given the study's focus on a highly vulnerable patient population, a description of safety considerations for human subjects' participation is provided. Based on this research team's experience, the implementation of an infrastructure in support of RCT research within DoD settings and the processing of regulatory approvals for a clinical trial with high risk suicidal patients are expected to take up to 18-24 months. Recommendations for expediting the advancement of clinical trials research within the DoD are provided in order to maximize cost efficacy and minimize the research to practice gap. PMID:25020008

Fuel characteristics pertinent to the design of aircraft fuel systems, Supplement I : additional information on MIL-F-7914(AER) grade JP-5 fuel and several fuel oils  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Since the release of the first NACA publication on fuel characteristics pertinent to the design of aircraft fuel systems (NACA-RM-E53A21), additional information has become available on MIL-F7914(AER) grade JP-5 fuel and several of the current grades of fuel oils. In order to make this information available to fuel-system designers as quickly as possible, the present report has been prepared as a supplement to NACA-RM-E53A21. Although JP-5 fuel is of greater interest in current fuel-system problems than the fuel oils, the available data are not as extensive. It is believed, however, that the limited data on JP-5 are sufficient to indicate the variations in stocks that the designer must consider under a given fuel specification. The methods used in the preparation and extrapolation of data presented in the tables and figures of this supplement are the same as those used in NACA-RM-E53A21.

Infrared study of the influence of reducible iron(III) metal sites on the adsorption of CO, CO2, propane, propene and propyne in the mesoporous metal-organic framework MIL-100.  

PubMed

The present study illustrates the importance of the oxidation state of iron within the mesoporous iron trimesate [{Fe(3)O(H(2)O)(2)F(0.81)(OH)(0.19)}{C(6)H(3)(CO(2))(3)}(2)] denoted MIL-100(Fe) (MIL= Material from Institut Lavoisier) during adsorption of molecules that can interact with the accessible metal sites through ?-back donation. Adsorption of CO has been first followed by FTIR spectroscopy to quantify the Lewis acid sites in the dehydrated Fe(III) sample, outgassed at 150 °C, and on the partially reduced Fe(II/III), outgassed at 250 °C. The exposure of MIL-100(Fe) to CO(2), propane, propene and propyne has then been studied by FTIR spectroscopy and microcalorimetry. It appears that ?-back donating molecules are strongly adsorbed on reduced iron(II) sites despite the weaker Lewis acidity of cus Fe(2+) sites compared to that of Fe(3+) ones, as shown by pyridine adsorption.

Synthesis and structural characterization of metal-organic frameworks with the mellitate linker M2(OH)2[C12O12H2]·2H2O (M = Al, Ga, In) MIL-116  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

A new series of isostructural MOF-type carboxylates called MIL-116 (M2(OH)2[C12O12H2]·2H2O), was synthesized from the combination of mellitic acid and trivalent p cations M = Al3+, Ga3+ or In3+. Their structures were analyzed either by single-crystal microdiffraction using the synchrotron radiation beamline (ID13 station at ESRF, Grenoble) or solved from powder X-ray diffraction. The 3D hybrid framework is built up from the connection of infinite straight chains of metal-centered octahedra sharing trans corners linked to each other through the mellitate ligands. Here the ligand acts as octadentate linker with four of the carboxylic groups involved in the M-O-C bondings. The two other carboxylate arms remain non-bonded under their protonated form. This represents a rare case of the occurrence of both non-bonding and bonding organic functionalities in a MOF-type solid. Within the tunnels are located water species that interact with the non-coordinated -COOH groups pointing towards the channel.

Constructing Free Standing Metal Organic Framework MIL-53 Membrane Based on Anodized Aluminum Oxide Precursor  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

Metal organic framework (MOF) materials have attracted great attention due to their well-ordered and controllable pores possessing of prominent potentials for gas molecule sorption and separation performances. Organizing the MOF crystals to a continuous membrane with a certain scale will better exhibit their prominent potentials. Reports in recent years concentrate on well grown MOF membranes on specific substrates. Free standing MOF membranes could have more important applications since they are independent from the substrates. However, the method to prepare such a membrane has been a great challenge because good mechanical properties and stabilities are highly required. Here, we demonstrate a novel and facile technique for preparing the free standing membrane with a size as large as centimeter scale. The substrate we use proved itself not only a good skeleton but also an excellent precursor to fulfill the reaction. This kind of membrane owns a strong mechanical strength, based on the fact that it is much thinner than the composite membranes grown on substrates and it could exhibit good property of gas separation.

UARS MILS O3 soundings compared with lidar measurements using the conservative coordinates reconstruction technique

A technique based on conservative properties of certain meteorological fields is used to compare ozone measurements from the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) on the Upper Atmosphere Research Satellite (UARS) with soundings from a lidar system operated at midlatitudes by the University of L'Aquila, Italy. A few typical cases are analyzed in connection with the position of the vortex relative to the observing station, and it is shown that in general lidar observations taken within the vortex compare well with the UARS data, regardless of whether they are coincident with a satellite overpass. It is shown that such analysis may be useful for comparing measurements of the same quantity taken at different sites using different measurement techniques.

Correlations in the (Sub)Mil1imeter Background from ACT x BLAST  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

We present measurements of the auto- and cross-frequency correlation power spectra of the cosmic (sub)millimeter background at: 250, 350, and 500 microns (1200, 860, and 600 GHz) from observations made with the Balloon-borne Large Aperture Submillimeter Telescope, BLAST; and at 1380 and 2030 microns (218 and 148 GHz) from observations made with the Atacama Cosmology Telescope, ACT. The overlapping observations cover 8.6 deg(sup 2) in an area relatively free of Galactic dust near the south ecliptic pole (SEP). The ACT bands are sensitive to radiation from the CMB, the Sunyaev-Zel'dovich (SZ) effect from galaxy clusters, and to emission by radio and dusty star-forming galaxies (DSFGs), while the dominant contribution to the BLAST bands is from DSFGs. We confirm and extend the BLAST analysis of clustering with an independent pipeline, and also detect correlations between the ACT and BLAST maps at over 25(sigma) significance, which we interpret as a detection of the DSFGs in the ACT maps. In addition to a Poisson component in the cross-frequency power spectra, we detect a clustered signal at 4(sigma), and using a model for the DSFG evolution and number counts, we successfully fit all our spectra with a linear clustering model and a bias that depends only on red shift and not on scale. Finally, the data are compared to, and generally agree with, phenomenological models for the DSFG population. This study represents a first of its kind, and demonstrates the constraining power of the cross-frequency correlation technique to constrain models for the DSFGs. Similar analyses with more data will impose tight constraints 011 future models.

Recycling MIL-H-46170 hydraulic fluid to extend fluid service life. Final report, 1 October 1993-31 August 1994  

SciTech Connect

This report documents the laboratory efforts in proving that used hydraulic fluid could be recycled by removing contaminants and mixing with new fluid. Once the used fluid has been filtered to remove solid particulate contamination and de-humidified to bring the moisture content below 500 ppm water, it can be mixed with new fluid in a 75:25 ratio to bring the fluid mixture up to specification performance. The recycled used fluid by itself could not pass the foaming characteristic requirement thus requiring re-inhibition. Instead of adding more anti-foaming agent to the fluid, the decision was made to mix recycled fluid with new fluid to provide the re-inhibition effect. Mixing in new fluid results in an enhancement of all additive performance and eliminated any possible problems with adding too much or too little anti-foaming agent. These efforts set the standards for evaluating commercial recycling units that can recycle hydraulic fluid on a large scale and also establish doctrine for successfully extending the service life of used hydraulic fluid.

Magnetite in Martian Meteorite Mil 03346 and Gusev Adirondack Class Basalt: Mossbauer Evidence for Variability in the Oxidation State of Adirondack Lavas  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Moessbauer spectrometers on the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit (Gusev crater) and Opportunity (Meridiani Planum) have returned information on the oxidation state of iron, the mineralogical composition of Fe-bearing phases, and the distribution of Fe among oxidation states and phases [1,2,3]. To date, approx.100 and approx.85 surface targets have been analyzed by the Spirit and Opportunity spectrometers, respectively. Twelve component subspectra (8 doublets and 4 sextets) have been identified and most have been assigned to mineralogical compositions [4]. Two sextet subspectra result from the opaque and strongly magnetic mineral magnetite (Fe3O4 for the stoichiometric composition), one each for the crystallographic sites occupied by tetrahedrally-coordinated Fe3+ and by octahedrally-coordinated Fe3+ and Fe2+. At Gusev crater, the percentage of total Fe associated with magnetite for rocks ranges from 0 to approx. 35% (Fig. 1) [3]. The range for soils (approx.5 to approx.12% of total Fe from Mt, with one exception) is narrower. The ubiquitous presence of Mt in soil firmly establishes the phase as the strongly magnetic component in martian soil [4,5].

A comparison of the V/STOL handling qualities of the VAK-191B with the requirements of AGARD report 577 and MIL-F-83300  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The handling qualities of the VAK-191B VTOL aircraft are compared with current V/STOL handling qualities requirements. The aircraft handling qualities were superior to other V/STOL fighter aircraft. Several deficiencies which would seriously affect shipboard V/STOL operation includes: (1) poor hovering precision; (2) inadequate mechanical control characteristics; (3) nonlinear pitch and roll response; (4) an uncommanded movement of the height control lever; (5) low pitch control sensitivity; (6) excessive dihedral effect; and (7) inadequate overall thrust response. The attitude command control system resulted on reduced pilot workload during hover and low speed flight.

Three inch diameter Czochralski silicon substrates sliced directly to 5 mil, 8 mil, and 27 mil thicknesses with wire saw techniques were procured. Processing sequences incorporating either diffusion or ion implantation technologies were employed to produce n+p or n+pp+ solar cell structures. These cells were evaluated for performance, ease of fabrication, and cost effectiveness. It was determined that the use of 7 mil or even 4 mil wafers would provide near term cost reductions for solar cell manufacturers.

Transcription of the Major Neurospora crassa microRNA–Like Small RNAs Relies on RNA Polymerase III  

PubMed Central

Most plant and animal microRNAs (miRNAs) are transcribed by RNA polymerase II. We previously discovered miRNA–like small RNAs (milRNAs) in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa and uncovered at least four different pathways for milRNA production. To understand the evolutionary origin of milRNAs, we determined the roles of polymerases II and III (Pol II and Pol III) in milRNA transcription. Our results show that Pol III is responsible for the transcription of the major milRNAs produced in this organism. The inhibition of Pol III activity by an inhibitor or by gene silencing abolishes the production of most abundant milRNAs and pri–milRNAs. In addition, Pol III associates with these milRNA producing loci. Even though silencing of Pol II does not affect the synthesis of the most abundant milRNAs, Pol II or both Pol II and Pol III are associated with some milRNA–producing loci, suggesting a regulatory interaction between the two polymerases for some milRNA transcription. Furthermore, we show that one of the Pol III–transcribed milRNAs is derived from a tRNA precursor, and its biogenesis requires RNase Z, which cleaves the tRNA moiety to generate pre–milRNA. Our study identifies the transcriptional machinery responsible for the synthesis of fungal milRNAs and sheds light on the evolutionary origin of eukaryotic small RNAs. PMID:23349642

Effect of central metal ions of analogous metal-organic frameworks on adsorption of organoarsenic compounds from water: plausible mechanism of adsorption and water purification.  

PubMed

The adsorptive removal of organoarsenic compounds such as p-arsanilic acid (ASA) and roxarsone (ROX) from water using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) has been investigated for the first time. A MOF, iron benzenetricarboxylate (also called MIL-100-Fe) exhibits a much higher adsorption capacity for ASA and ROX than activated carbon, zeolite (HY), goethite, and other MOFs. The adsorption of ASA and ROX over MIL-100-Fe is also much more rapid than that over activated carbon. Moreover, the used MIL-100-Fe can be recycled by simply washing with acidic ethanol. Therefore, it is determined that a MOF such as MIL-100-Fe can be used to remove organoarsenic compounds from contaminated water because of its high adsorption capacity, rapid adsorption, and ready regeneration. Moreover, only one of three analogous MIL-100 species (MIL-100-Fe, rather than MIL-100-Al or MIL-100-Cr) can effectively remove the organoarsenic compounds. This selective and high adsorption over MIL-100-Fe, different from other analogous MIL-100 species, can be explained (through calculations) by the facile desorption of water from MIL-100-Fe as well as the large (absolute value) replacement energy (difference between the adsorption energies of the organoarsenic compounds and water) exhibited by MIL-100-Fe. A plausible adsorption/desorption mechanism is proposed based on the surface charge of the MOFs, FTIR results, calculations, and the reactivation results with respect to the solvents used in the experiments.

Social threats, happiness, and the dynamics of meaning in life judgments.  

PubMed

Four studies examined social relatedness and positive affect (PA) as alternate sources of information for judgments of meaning in life (MIL). In Studies 1 through 3 (total N = 282), priming loneliness increased reliance on PA and decreased reliance on social functioning in MIL judgments. In Study 4 (N = 138), daily assessments of PA, relatedness needs satisfaction (RNS), and MIL were obtained every 5 days over 20 days. Multilevel modeling showed that on days when RNS was low, PA was strongly related to MIL. Results suggest the dynamic ways that social relationships and PA inform judgments of MIL. Informational and motivational accounts of these results are discussed. PMID:20729336

Pairing Relationships Among Feldspathic Lunar Meteorites from Miller Range, Antarctica  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The Miller Range ice fields have been amongst the most prolific for lunar meteorites that ANSMET has searched [1-3]. Six different stones have been recovered during the 2005, 2007, and 2009 field seasons: MIL 05035 (142 g), MIL 07006 (1.4 g), MIL 090034 (196 g), MIL 090036 (245 g), MIL 090070 (137 g), and MIL 090075 (144 g). Of these, the five stones collected during the 2007 and 2009 seasons are feldspathic breccias. Previous work on the Miller Range feldspathic lunar meteorites (FLMs) has suggested that they are not all paired with each other [4-5]. Here we examine the pairing relationships among the Miller Range FLMs using petrography in concert with traceand major-element compositions.

Effects of milrinone on systemic capacitance vessels in relation to venous return and right ventricular pump function.  

PubMed

To investigate the effect of milrinone (MIL) on systemic capacitance vessels, we measured the mean circulatory filling pressure (MCP) in anesthetized open chest dogs. We measured hemodynamic parameters (a) at baseline blood volume (BV), (b) immediately after bloodletting (5 ml/kg), and (c) immediately after dextran injection (5 ml/kg). These measurements were taken in a control group (n = 8) and in a MIL group (n = 8), where MIL (100 + 2.5 micrograms/kg/min) was administered i.v. The extra volume (EV) was obtained by extrapolating the straight line that was fit to the MCP-BV plot. MIL significantly decreased the EV, from 22.8 +/- 1.0 to 19.1 +/- 0.4 ml/kg, indicating that MIL dilates the systemic capacitance vessels. MIL shifted the right ventricular output curve to the left and upward and shifted the venous return curve to the left and rotated it clockwise. Thus, venous return was increased by decreasing the resistance to venous return and by improving right ventricular pump function. Next we evaluated the effects of MIL (100 micrograms/kg) on systemic capacitance and resistance vessels from changes seen in the MCP and the total peripheral resistance (TPR), respectively. In the untreated dogs, MIL decreased TPR significantly without affecting MCP. In dogs pretreated with total spinal anesthesia or phenoxybenzamine, MIL significantly decreased both MCP and TPR. This suggests that the intrinsic venodilator action of MIL is modified by the baroreflex in untreated animals. MIL decreased the MCP and TPR elevated previously by norepinephrine. One would, therefore, predict that MIL would dilate the systemic capacitance vessels in patients with congestive heart failure. PMID:1375693

Research, development and pilot production of high output thin silicon solar cells  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Work was performed to define and apply processes which could lead to high output from thin (2-8 mils) silicon solar cells. The overall problems are outlined, and two satisfactory process sequences were developed. These sequences led to good output cells in the thickness range to just below 4 mils; although the initial contract scope was reduced, one of these sequences proved capable of operating beyond a pilot line level, to yield good quality 4-6 mil cells of high output.

Silver nanoparticles were successfully supported on the zeolite-type metal-organic framework MIL-101 to yield Ag@MIL-101 by a simple liquid impregnation method. For the first time, the conversion of terminal alkynes into propiolic acids with CO2 was achieved by the use of the Ag@MIL-101 catalysts. Owing to the excellent catalytic activity, the reaction proceeded at atmospheric pressure and low temperature (50?°C). The Ag@MIL-101 porous material is of outstanding bifunctional character as it is capable of simultaneously capturing and converting CO2 with low energy consumption and can be recovered easily by centrifugation.

A climatology of planetary wave-driven mesospheric inversion layers in the extratropical winter  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

inversion layers (MILs) are a useful diagnostic to simultaneously investigate middle atmosphere radiation, chemistry, and dynamics in high-top general circulation models. Climatologies of long-lived extratropical winter MILs observed by the Microwave Limb Sounder (MLS) and the Sounding of the Atmosphere using Broadband Emission Radiometry (SABER) satellite instruments are compared to MILs in the Whole Atmosphere Community Climate Model (WACCM). In general, MIL location, amplitude, and thickness statistics in WACCM are in good agreement with the observations, though WACCM middle- and high-latitude winter MILs occur 30%-50% more often than in MLS and SABER. This work suggests that planetary wave-driven MILs may form as high as 90 km. In the winter, MILs display a wave-1 pattern in both hemispheres, forming most often over the region where the climatological winter stratospheric anticyclones occur. These MILs are driven by the decay of vertically propagating planetary waves in the mesospheric surf zone in both observations and in the model. At the base of polar inversions there is climatological local ascent and cooling situated atop the stratospheric anticyclones, which enhances the cold base of the MILs near 60 km and 120°E longitude.

Lithium Isotope Ratios in Foraminifera - A Potential Proxy for Geologic Evolution of Cenozoic Seawater Chemistry  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

The Li isotope ratio of seawater (?7Li) recorded in planktonic foraminifera has the potential to elucidate changes in seawater chemistry and the factors driving variations of oceanic silica mass balances linked to continental and sea floor/hydrothermal weathering. To establish the validity of forams as a recorder of seawater ?7Li, we measured Li/Ca, Mg/Ca, Mn/Ca, V/Ca, Sr/Ca and Ba/Ca in cleaned core top foraminifera samples from Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico from (a) 9 individual species, (b) size fractions of the same species and (c) bulk samples of size fractions. Samples were chemically cleaned with a reductive-oxidative-reductive (R-O-R) cleaning sequence. The high precision (<0.9 per mil, 2?), low blank (<500fg/ml) and low Li mass requirement (<0.3ng/quintuplicate) of our method allows precise ?7Li determination using <1.0mg of forams and <5.0?l of seawater by single collector Quadrupole ICP-MS (Agilent 7500cs). Our seawater ?7Li value (30.79 per mil ±0.91 per mil, 2?, n=10) is the same as that reported by other workers (~31 per mil ±0.5 per mil). Species-specific ?7Li analyses of Orbulina universa (>300?m) from both Caribbean Sea (30.72 per mil ±1.43 per mil, n=5) and Gulf of Mexico (30.16 per mil ±1.37 per mil, n=4) yield values similar to modern seawater. ?7Li values of Globigerina triloba and Globorotalia menardii (Caribbean Sea, >300?m) are (30.12 per mil ±1.34 per mil, n=4) and (30.29 per mil ±0.92 per mil, n=4). The 212? m-300?m size fractions of triloba (30.05 per mil) and menardii (30.29 per mil) from the Caribbean Sea produced similar ?7Li values, indicating the absence of size dependent fractionation in at least two species. Bulk foram analyses of >300?m (29.84 per mil ±1.52 per mil, n=2) and 212?m-300?m (30.25 per mil ±1.61 per mil) also produced ?7Li values similar to seawater. Identical ?7Li values, within error, of two fractions of bulk samples with seawater encourages the potential use of bulk foraminiferal samples instead of a species- specific bootstrap approach to create a long-term ?7Li record of seawater. ?7Li values for Neogloboquadrina dutertrei (29.72 per mil ±0.97 per mil), Globigerinoides ruber (30.56 per mil ±1.41 per mil) and Globigerinoides sacculifera (28.99 per mil ±1.04 per mil) from Caribbean samples yield values similar to seawater. Globorotalia tumida (28.21 per mil ±2.04 per mil) is somewhat low for reasons not yet understood.Globorotalia truncatulionoides (29.10per mil ±2.19 per mil) and Globigerinoides conglobatus (27.94 per mil ±1.95 per mil) from the Gulf of Mexico yield ?7Li values lower than seawater with comparatively larger errors in ?7Li. Samples with high Mn/Ca ratio (>20?mol/mol) produce ?7Li values significantly lower (4 per mil to 6 per mil) than seawater, emphasizing the importance of multiple oxidative-reductive (R-O-R) cleaning of forams to remove metal oxide deposits. No significant correlation was observed between ?7Li and Li/Ca ratio of foram samples, suggesting that the Li isotope ratio of forams is independent of its Li concentration. There are also no significant relations between other metals (Mg, Mn, Sr and Ba) and ?7Li that might invoke fractionation effects as dissolution or gametogenetic calcite. Analyses of >300?m bulk fraction from Equatorial Indian Ocean Site 758 (0-6.5 Ma) and Western Equatorial Atlantic Site 926 (5.0-14.0 Ma) are in progress.

Preclinical evaluation of recombinant human IFN?2b-containing magnetoliposomes for treating hepatocellular carcinoma  

PubMed Central

Magnetoliposomes are phospholipid vesicles encapsulating magnetic nanoparticles that can be used to encapsulate therapeutic drugs for delivery into specific organs. Herein, we developed magnetoliposomes containing recombinant human IFN?2b, designated as MIL, and evaluated this combination’s biological safety and therapeutic effect on both cellular and animal hepatocellular carcinoma models. Our data showed that MIL neither hemolyzed erythrocytes nor affected platelet-aggregation rates in blood. Nitroblue tetrazolium-reducing testing showed that MIL did not change the absolute numbers or phagocytic activities of leukocytes. Acute-toxicity testing also showed that MIL had no devastating effect on mice behaviors. All the results indicated that the nanoparticles could be a safe biomaterial. Pharmacokinetic analysis and tissue-distribution studies showed that MIL maintained stable and sustained drug concentrations in target organs under a magnetic field, helped to increase bioavailability, and reduced administration time. MIL also dramatically inhibited the growth of hepatoma cells. Targeting of MIL in the livers of nude mice bearing human hepatocellular carcinoma showed that MIL significantly reduced the tumor size to 38% of that of the control group. Further studies proved that growth inhibition of cells or tumors was due to apoptosis-signaling pathway activation by human IFN?2b. PMID:25288882

Positive affect, meaning in life, and future time perspective: an application of socioemotional selectivity theory.  

PubMed

Four studies tested the prediction that positive affect (PA) would relate more strongly to meaning in life (MIL) as a function of perceived time limitations. In Study 1 (N = 360), adults completed measures of PA and MIL. As predicted, PA related more strongly to MIL for older, compared to younger, participants. In Studies 2 and 3, adults (N = 514) indicated their current position in their life span, and rated their MIL. PA, whether naturally occurring (Study 2) or induced (Study 3), was a stronger predictor of MIL for individuals who perceived themselves as having a limited amount of time left to live. Finally, in Study 4 (N = 98) students completed a measure of PA, MIL, and future time perspective (FTP). Results showed that PA was more strongly linked to MIL for those who believed they had fewer opportunities left to pursue their goals. Overall, these findings suggest that the experience of PA becomes increasingly associated with the experience of MIL as the perception of future time becomes limited. The contribution of age related processes to judgments of well-being are discussed. PMID:21707177

This study reveals the efficient enantiomeric separation of bioactive molecules in the liquid phase. Chiral structure HMOF-1 separates racemic mixtures whereas heteroselectivity is observed for scalemic mixtures of ibuprofen using non-chiral MIL-47 and MIL-53. Lysine enantiomers are only separated by HMOF-1. These separations are controlled by the tight confinement of the molecules. PMID:25090236

A novel multiple instance learning method based on extreme learning machine.  

PubMed

Since real-world data sets usually contain large instances, it is meaningful to develop efficient and effective multiple instance learning (MIL) algorithm. As a learning paradigm, MIL is different from traditional supervised learning that handles the classification of bags comprising unlabeled instances. In this paper, a novel efficient method based on extreme learning machine (ELM) is proposed to address MIL problem. First, the most qualified instance is selected in each bag through a single hidden layer feedforward network (SLFN) whose input and output weights are both initialed randomly, and the single selected instance is used to represent every bag. Second, the modified ELM model is trained by using the selected instances to update the output weights. Experiments on several benchmark data sets and multiple instance regression data sets show that the ELM-MIL achieves good performance; moreover, it runs several times or even hundreds of times faster than other similar MIL algorithms.

Dealing with heterogeneous classification problem in the framework of multi-instance learning.  

PubMed

To deal with heterogeneous classification problem efficiently, each heterogeneous object was represented by a set of measurements obtained on different part of it, and the heterogeneous classification problem was reformulated in the framework of multi-instance learning (MIL). Based on a variant of count-based MIL assumption, a maximum count least squares support vector machine (maxc-LS-SVM) learning algorithm was developed. The algorithm was tested on a set of toy datasets. It was found that maxc-LS-SVM inherits all the sound characters of both LS-SVM and MIL framework. A comparison study between the proposed approach and the other two MIL approaches (i.e., mi-SVM and MI-SVM) was performed on a real wolfberry fruit spectral dataset. The results demonstrate that by formulating the heterogeneous classification problem as a MIL one, the heterogeneous classification problem can be solved by the proposed maxc-LS-SVM algorithm effectively.

Dexterity testing of chemical-defense gloves. Technical report  

SciTech Connect

Chemical-defense gloves (12.5-mil Epichlorohydron/Butyl, 14-mil Epichlorohydron/Butyl, and 7-mil Butyl with Nomex overgloves) were subjected to four dexterity tests (O'Connor Finger Dexterity Test, Pennsylvania Bi-Manual Worksample-Assembly, Minnesota Rate of Manipulation Turning, and the Crawford Small Test). Results indicated that subjects performances were most impaired by the 7-mil Butyl with Nomex overglove. Though differences between the other three gloved conditions were not always statistically significant, subjects performed silghtly better while wearing the Epichlorohydron/Butyl gloves, no matter which thickness, than they did while wearing the 15-mil butyl gloves. High negative correlation between anthropometry and gloved tests scores of subjects suggested that poor glove fit may also have affected subjects performances.

Rapid recruitment of macrophages in interleukin-12-mediated tumour regression.  

PubMed Central

In order to study the mechanism of interleukin-12 (IL-12) antitumour activity, RH7777 rat hepatoma cells were engineered to express mouse IL-12 (mIL-12) (RH7777/mIL-12) under the tight control of doxycycline (dox). The production of the mIL-12 protein was regulated by the concentration of dox that was present in the culture medium. RH7777/mIL-12 cells appeared to have the same tumorigenic activity as did parental RH7777 cells, when subcutaneously injected into syngeneic rat (BUF/N) in the absence of dox. However, the tumorigenicity of RH7777/mIL-12, but not RH7777, cells were significantly decreased when dox was administrated to the animals. In addition, established tumours of RH7777/mIL-12 cells gradually disappeared upon the induction of mIL-12 by dox. To elucidate the kinetic profile of immune cells involved in the mIL-12-induced tumour regression, both histological and immunohistochemical analyses were performed 1, 3 and 14 days after the dox treatment on rats bearing tumours that were approximately 0. 5 cm in diameter. Tumour-infiltrating macrophages began to appear at the tumour site one day after dox treatment. As time elapsed, the number of tumour infiltrates including CD4+, CD8+, natural killer (NK) cells and macrophages gradually increased. In particular, CD8+ and NK cells constituted the major population of the tumour-infiltrated cells. Furthermore, it was found that resting peritoneal macrophages (PM) from rats were chemoattracted in response to mIL-12. The effects of mIL-12 on PM chemotaxis were reproducibly observed in concentrations as low as 0.1 ng/ml. These findings suggest that IL-12 can directly recruit macrophages into tumour sites which, in turn, leads to a broad and intense immunological response against tumour.

Radiosensitizing effect of intratumoral interleukin-12 gene electrotransfer in murine sarcoma  

PubMed Central

Background Interleukin-12 (IL-12) based radiosensitization is an effective way of tumor treatment. Local cytokine production, without systemic shedding, might provide clinical benefit in radiation treatment of sarcomas. Therefore, the aim was to stimulate intratumoral IL-12 production by gene electrotransfer of plasmid coding for mouse IL-12 (mIL-12) into the tumors, in order to explore its radiosensitizing effect after single or multiple intratumoral gene electrotransfer. Methods Solid SA-1 fibrosarcoma tumors, on the back of A/J mice, were treated intratumorally by mIL-12 gene electrotransfer and 24 h later irradiated with a single dose. Treatment effectiveness was measured by tumor growth delay and local tumor control assay (TCD50 assay). With respect to therapeutic index, skin reaction in the radiation field was scored. The tumor and serum concentrations of cytokines mIL-12 and mouse interferon ? (mIFN?) were measured. Besides single, also multiple intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer before and after tumor irradiation was evaluated. Results Single intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer resulted in increased intratumoral but not serum mIL-12 and mIFN? concentrations, and had good antitumor (7.1% tumor cures) and radiosensitizing effect (21.4% tumor cures). Combined treatment resulted in the radiation dose-modifying factor of 2.16. Multiple mIL-12 gene electrotransfer had an even more pronounced antitumor (50% tumor cures) and radiosensitizing (86.7% tumor cures) effect. Conclusions Single or multiple intratumoral mIL-12 gene electrotransfer resulted in increased intratumoral mIL-12 and mIFN? cytokine level, and may provide an efficient treatment modality for soft tissue sarcoma as single or adjuvant therapy to tumor irradiation.

LEO spacecraft leakage current and discharging phenomena - TRW LDEF SP-HVDE (space plasma-high voltage drainage experiment)  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Two identical SP-HVDE trays were flown in the NASA 5.75-year LDEF (Long Duration Exposure Facility), one near the leading edge and the other near the trailing edge, in the LEO (low earth orbit) environment. Each experiment tray consisted of six assemblies with each made of Kapton dielectric samples of varying thicknesses (i.e., 2 mils, 3 mils, and 5 mils) biased under +/- 300 V, +/- 500 V, and +/- 1000 V. The objectives have been successfully achieved by measuring the first post-flight long-term (i.e. roughly 8-month experiment) average leakage current through 95 percent measurable coulombmeters and surface materials.

High pressure pulsed capillary viscometry  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

An analytical and test program was conducted in order to establish the feasibility of a multichamber pulsed-capillary viscometer. The initial design incorporated a piston, ram, and seals which produced measured pulses up to 30,000 psi in the closed chamber system. Pressure pulses from one to ten milliseconds were investigated in a system volume of 1 cuin. Four test fluids: a MIL-L-7808, a 5P4E polyphenyl ether, a MIL-L-23699A, and a synthetic hydrocarbon were examined in the test pressure assembly. The pressure-viscosity coefficient and viscosity delay time were determined for the MIL-L-7808 lubricant tested.

Identification of MicroRNA-Like RNAs in Mycelial and Yeast Phases of the Thermal Dimorphic Fungus Penicillium marneffei  

PubMed Central

Background Penicillium marneffei is the most important thermal dimorphic fungus causing systemic mycosis in China and Southeast Asia. While miRNAs are increasingly recognized for their roles in post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in animals and plants, miRNAs in fungi were less well studied and their potential roles in fungal dimorphism were largely unknown. Based on P. marneffei genome sequence, we hypothesize that miRNA-like RNAs (milRNAs) may be expressed in the dimorphic fungus. Methodology/Principal Findings We attempted to identify milRNAs in P. marneffei in both mycelial and yeast phase using high-throughput sequencing technology. Small RNAs were more abundantly expressed in mycelial than yeast phase. Sequence analysis revealed 24 potential milRNA candidates, including 17 candidates in mycelial and seven in yeast phase. Two genes, dcl-1 and dcl-2, encoding putative Dicer-like proteins and the gene, qde-2, encoding Argonaute-like protein, were identified in P. marneffei. Phylogenetic analysis showed that dcl-2 of P. marneffei was more closely related to the homologues in other thermal dimorphic pathogenic fungi than to Penicillium chrysogenum and Aspergillus spp., suggesting the co-evolution of dcl-2 among the thermal dimorphic fungi. Moreover, dcl-2 demonstrated higher mRNA expression levels in mycelial than yeast phase by 7 folds (P<0.001). Northern blot analysis confirmed the expression of two milRNAs, PM-milR-M1 and PM-milR-M2, only in mycelial phase. Using dcl-1KO, dcl-2KO, dclDKO and qde-2KO deletion mutants, we showed that the biogenesis of both milRNAs were dependent on dcl-2 but not dcl-1 or qde-2. The mRNA expression levels of three predicted targets of PM-milR-M1 were upregulated in knockdown strain PM-milR-M1KD, supporting regulatory function of milRNAs. Conclusions/Significance Our findings provided the first evidence for differential expression of milRNAs in different growth phases of thermal dimorphic fungi and shed light on the evolution of fungal proteins involved in milRNA biogenesis and possible role of post-transcriptional control in governing thermal dimorphism.

Chromium alloy sheet was clad with 5 to 10-mil-thick oxidation-resistant nickel-base alloy foils. Specimens also contained 1/2 to 1-mil-thick intermediate layers of platinum, tungsten, and/or W-25Re. Cladding was done by the isostatic hot gas-pressure bonding,.process. The clad chromium-alloy specimens were cyclic oxidation tested at 2100 F and 2300 F for up to 200 hours to determine the effectiveness of these metal claddings in protecting the chromium alloy Cr-5W from oxidation and contamination. Cladding systems consisting of 5-mil-thick Ni-20Cr-20W modified with 3 to 5 weight percent aluminum and containing a 1 /2-mil tungsten diffusion barrier demonstrated potential for long-time service at temperatures as high as 2300 F.

Metal-organic frameworks with wine-rack motif: What determines their flexibility and elastic properties?  

NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

We present here a framework for the analysis of the full tensors of second-order elastic constants of metal-organic frameworks, which can be obtained by ab initio calculations. We describe the various mechanical properties one can derive from such tensors: directional Young's modulus, shear modulus, Poisson ratio, and linear compressibility. We then apply this methodology to four different metal-organic frameworks displaying a wine-rack structure: MIL-53(Al), MIL-47, MIL-122(In), and MIL-140A. From these results, we shed some light into the link between mechanical properties, geometric shape, and compliance of the framework of these porous solids. We conclude by proposing a simple criterion to assess the framework compliance, based on the lowest eigenvalue of its second-order elastic tensor.

Relative quantification of biomarkers using mixed-isotope labeling coupled with MS.  

PubMed

The identification and quantification of important biomarkers is a critical first step in the elucidation of biological systems. Biomarkers take many forms as cellular responses to stimuli and can be manifested during transcription, translation, and/or metabolic processing. Increasingly, researchers have relied upon mixed-isotope labeling (MIL) coupled with MS to perform relative quantification of biomarkers between two or more biological samples. MIL effectively tags biomarkers of interest for ease of identification and quantification within the mass spectrometer by using isotopic labels that introduce a heavy and light form of the tag. In addition to MIL coupled with MS, a number of other approaches have been used to quantify biomarkers including protein gel staining, enzymatic labeling, metabolic labeling, and several label-free approaches that generate quantitative data from the MS signal response. This review focuses on MIL techniques coupled with MS for the quantification of protein and small-molecule biomarkers. PMID:23157360

Distinctive Nanoscale Organization of Dicationic versus Monocationic Ionic Liquids  

SciTech Connect

The distinctive structural organization of dicationic ionic liquids (DILs) with varying alkyl linkage chain lengths is systematically investigated using classical molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. In comparison with their counterparts, monocationic ionic liquids (MILs) with free alkyl chain, the DILs with short linkage chains exhibit almost identical structural features regardless of anion types, whereas the long-chain DILs display a relatively insignificant prepeak and low heterogeneity order parameter (HOP), which is accompanied by the less evident structural heterogeneity. Moreover, the predominant role of anion type in the structure of DILs was verified, similar to what is observed in MILs. Finally, the different nanoscale organizations in DILs and MILs are rationalized by the relatively unfavorable straight and folded chain models proposed for the nanoaggregates in DILs and the favorable micelle-like arrangement for those in MILs.

Iron isotope biosignatures  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

The (56)Fe/(54)Fe of Fe-bearing phases precipitated in sedimentary environments varies by 2.5 per mil (delta(56)Fe values of +0.9 to -1. 6 per mil). In contrast, the (56)Fe/(54)Fe of Fe-bearing phases in igneous rocks from Earth and the moon does not vary measurably (delta(56)Fe = 0.0 +/- 0.3 per mil). Experiments with dissimilatory Fe-reducing bacteria of the genus Shewanella algae grown on a ferrihydrite substrate indicate that the delta(56)Fe of ferrous Fe in solution is isotopically lighter than the ferrihydrite substrate by 1.3 per mil. Therefore, the range in delta(56)Fe values of sedimentary rocks may reflect biogenic fractionation, and the isotopic composition of Fe may be used to trace the distribution of microorganisms in modern and ancient Earth.

Chemical-defense flight-glove ensemble evaluation. Final report, June 1986-February 1987  

SciTech Connect

Four chemical-defense flight-glove ensembles were evaluated for their effect on manual dexterity. Two- and three-layer combinations included in the study were: cotton liner/7-mil butyl/Nomex; cotton liner/12.5-mil epichlorohydron butyl/Nomex; Nomex/7-mil butyl (no liner); and, Nomex/12.5-mil epichlorohydron butyl (no liner). Fifteen male and 15 female subjects performed five dexterity tests bare-handed and while wearing each of the glove ensembles. Results indicated that, as expected, all gloved conditions produced significantly poorer performances that did the bare-handed condition, and two-layer combinations resulted in consistently better performances that did the three-layer combinations. Although subjects' performance were least impaired by the Nomex/butyl 7 combination, the butyl 7 gloves tended to tear. For this reason, the two-layer combinations of Nomex/epichlorohydron butyl 12.5 appears to be the most practical ensemble.

Secretion of biologically active murine interleukin-2 by Lactococcus lactis subsp. lactis.  

PubMed

Secretion of functional recombinant murine interleukin-2 (mIL2) by Lactococcus lactis was achieved by fusion of the sequence encoding mature mIL2 to the secretion signal leader of the lactococcal usp45 gene placed under transcriptional control of the phage T7 promoter-T7 RNA polymerase expression system. The recombinant mature mIL2 was one of only a few proteins which accumulated in the growth medium. Sequence analysis revealed correct processing at the first amino acid of the mature protein. A T-cell proliferation assay showed that the recombinant protein has the same specific biological activity as mIL2 obtained from a natural source. PMID:7747977

Secretion of biologically active murine interleukin-10 by Lactococcus lactis.  

PubMed

We investigated the ability of Lactococcus lactis to secrete biologically active, murine interleukin-10 (mIL-10). mIL-10 was synthesized as a fusion protein, consisting of the mature part of the eukaryotic protein fused to the secretion signal of the lactococcal Usp45 protein. The secreted protein was analyzed by PAGE, ELISA and bioassay.We show that L. lactis can efficiently secrete biologically active, murine IL-10. Determination of the N-terminal amino acid sequence confirmed correct processing of the fusion polypeptide by the lactococcal signal peptidase. The amount of mIL-10, accumulating in the medium, could be increased by a factor of ten by growing the cells in an optimized medium, buffered at near-neutral pH. Under these conditions, up to 30 mg of mIL-10 was obtained from a 10-litre fermentation. PMID:11118583

Stable-isotope ratios of hydrogen and oxygen in precipitation at Norman, Oklahoma, 1996-2008  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Precipitation samples for measurement of stable-isotope ratios of hydrogen (delta2H) and oxygen (delta18O) were collected at the Norman Landfill Research Site in Norman, Oklahoma, from May 1996 to October 2008. Rainfall amounts also were measured at the site (U.S. Geological Survey gaging station 07229053) during the collection period. The delta2H of precipitation samples ranged from -121.9 to +8.3 per mil, and the delta18O of precipitation ranged from -16.96 to +0.50 per mil. The volume-weighted average values for delta2H and delta18O of precipitation over the 12-year measurement period were -31.13 per mil for delta2H and -5.57 per mil for delta18O. Average summer-season delta2H and delta18O values of precipitation usually were more positive (enriched in the heavier isotopes) than winter values.

Spaceflight performance of several types of silicon solar cells on the LIPS 3 satellite  

NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

Results from exposure of several types of Solarex silicon cells to a space environment for nearly two years on the LIPS 3 satellite are presented. Experiments include standard thickness (10 mil) cells with and without back surface fields, and ultrathin (2 mil) cells also with and without back surface fields. A comparison between a widely used coverslide adhesive, DC 93-500 and a potential alternate is also presented. The major findings from the data are that the 2 mil cells without a back surface field show the smallest normalized short circuit current degradation and that the 10 mil back surface field cells show the greatest absolute power output for the radiation exposures and temperatures encountered. The new encapsulant (McGhan Nusil CV-2500) exhibits a degradation comparable to DC 93-500. A comparison is made with each of the cell types in this experiment with expectations based on JPL Radiation Handbook data.

Iron isotope biosignatures.  

PubMed

The (56)Fe/(54)Fe of Fe-bearing phases precipitated in sedimentary environments varies by 2.5 per mil (delta(56)Fe values of +0.9 to -1. 6 per mil). In contrast, the (56)Fe/(54)Fe of Fe-bearing phases in igneous rocks from Earth and the moon does not vary measurably (delta(56)Fe = 0.0 +/- 0.3 per mil). Experiments with dissimilatory Fe-reducing bacteria of the genus Shewanella algae grown on a ferrihydrite substrate indicate that the delta(56)Fe of ferrous Fe in solution is isotopically lighter than the ferrihydrite substrate by 1.3 per mil. Therefore, the range in delta(56)Fe values of sedimentary rocks may reflect biogenic fractionation, and the isotopic composition of Fe may be used to trace the distribution of microorganisms in modern and ancient Earth.

Submarine seep of carbon dioxide in Norton Sound, Alaska  

USGS Publications Warehouse

Earlier workers have described a submarine gas seep in Norton Sound having an unusual mixture of petroleum-like, low-molecular-weight hydrocarbons. Actually, only about 0.04 percent of the seeping gas is hydrocarbons and 98 percent is carbon dioxide. The isotopic compositions of carbon dioxide (??13CPDB = -2.7 per mil) and methane (??13CPDB = -36 per mil, where PDB is the Peedee belemnite standard) indicate that geothermal processes are active here.

Impeller Metrology for Pipeline Compressors Using Computed Radiography  

SciTech Connect

A new, quantitative method is described to measure features in pipeline impellers using computed radiography (CR). This capability, with an accuracy approaching 5 mils, is required to optimize the impeller design for high efficiency. The large area coverage, simplicity, and high spatial resolution of CR are ideal for this application. A novel phantom and image processing algorithm chain was used to demonstrate measurement repeatability of 99.9% (1 mil) using CR.
