    Synthetic mixtures prepared gravimetrically from highly enriched isotopes of neodymium in the form of oxides of well-defined purity were used to calibrate a thermal ionization mass spectrometer. A new error analysis was applied to calculate the final uncertainty of the atomic weight value. Measurements on natural neodymium samples yielded an absolute isotopic composition of 27.153(19) atomic percent (at.%) 142Nd, 12.173(18) at.% 143Nd, 23.798(12) at.% 144Nd, 8.293(7) at.% 145Nd, 17.189(17) at.% 146Nd, 5.756(8) at.% 148Nd, and 5.638(9) at.% 150Nd, and the atomic weight of neodymium as 144.2415(13), with uncertainties given on the basis of 95% confidence limits. No isotopic fractionation was found in terrestrial neodymium materials.

    The neodymium isotope effects were investigated in Nd-malate ligand exchange system using the highly porous cation exchange resin SQS-6. The temperature of the chromatographic columns was kept constant at 50°C by temperature controlled water passed through the columns jackets. The separation coefficient of neodymium isotopes, ɛ's, was calculated from the isotopic ratios precisely measured by means of an ICP mass spectrometer equipped with nine collectors as ion detectors. The separation coefficient, ɛ×10(5), were calculated and found to be 1.4, 4.8, 5.4, 10.6, 16.8 and 20.2 for (143)Nd, (144)Nd, (145)Nd, (146)Nd, (148)Nd and (150)Nd, respectively.

    Based on non-local thermodynamical equilibrium (NLTE) calculations, the solar neodymium (Nd) content was found based on a model atom of singly ionized neodymium (Nd ii) containing 153 energy levels and 42 line transitions plus the ground state of Nd iii. Here, we re-derive the solar Nd abundance using the model of the solar photosphere of Holweger & Müller.We succeed in selecting a good sample line list, relying on 20 Nd ii solar lines together with the most accurate transition probabilities measured experimentally and available observational data. With damping parameters obtained from the literature, we find a mean NLTE solar photospheric Nd abundance of log ɛNd(1D) = 1.43 ± 0.16, which is in excellent agreement with the meteoritic value (log ɛNd = 1.45 ± 0.02). For a set of selected Nd ii lines, the NLTE abundance correction is found to be +0.01 dex compared with the standard LTE effect. The influence of collisional interactions with electrons and neutral hydrogen atoms is investigated in detail.

    Neutron capture and transmission measurements were performed by the time-of-flight technique at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute LINAC using metallic neodymium samples. The capture measurements were made at the 25-m-long flight station with a 16-segment NaI(Tl) multiplicity detector, and the transmission measurements were performed at 15 and 25 m flight stations with a 6Li glass scintillation detector. After the data were collected and reduced, resonance parameters were determined by simultaneously fitting the transmission and capture data with the multilevel R-matrix Bayesian code SAMMY. The resonance parameters for all naturally occurring neodymium isotopes lie within the energy range of 1.0-500 eV. The resulting resonance parameters were used to calculate the capture resonance integral with this energy region and were compared to calculations obtained when using the resonance parameters from ENDF-B/VI. The RPI parameters gave a resonance integral value of 32 +/- 0.5 b that is approximately 7% lower than that obtained with the ENDF-B/VI parameters. The current measurements significantly reduce the statistical uncertainties on the resonance parameters when compared with previously published parameters.

    The oldest rocks-3.85 billion years old-from southwest Greenland have coupled neodymium-142 excesses (from decay of now-extinct samarium-146; half-life, 103 million years) and neodymium-143 excesses (from decay of samarium-147; half-life, 106 billion years), relative to chondritic meteorites, that directly date the formation of chemically distinct silicate reservoirs in the first 30 million to 75 million years of Earth history. The differences in 142Nd signatures of coeval rocks from the two most extensive crustal relicts more than 3.6 billion years old, in Western Australia and southwest Greenland, reveal early-formed large-scale chemical heterogeneities in Earth's mantle that persisted for at least the first billion years of Earth history. Temporal variations in 142Nd signatures track the subsequent incomplete remixing of very-early-formed mantle chemical domains.

    The high-spin states of 143Nd have been studied in the 130Te(18O, 5n)143Nd reaction at a beam energy of 80 MeV using techniques of in-beam γ-ray spectroscopy. Measurements of γ - γ - t coincidences, γ-ray angular distributions, and γ-ray linear polarizations were performed. A level scheme of 143Nd with spin and parity assignments up to 53/2+ is proposed. While a weak coupling model can explain the level structure up to the Jπ=39/2- state, this model can not reproduce the higher-lying states. Additionally, a new low-lying non-yrast level sequence in 143Nd was observed in the present work, which can be well described by the weak coupling of an i13/2 neutron to the 142Nd core nucleus.

    Organometallic liquid scintillator becomes one of the man detection mediums for neutrino experiment. Liquid-liquid extraction is the method of choice for loading metallic ions of interest into the organic solvents at BNL. High purity of all starting materials is essential for the optimization of synthesis. A newly developed 'self-scavenging' technique was applied to purify undesired radioisotopes from the starting metal compound and found to effectively remove thorium and such containments from the neodymium chloride for SNO+.

    Neodymium-142 data for rocks from the Nuvvuagittuq greenstone belt in northern Quebec, Canada, show that some rock types have lower 142Nd/144Nd ratios than the terrestrial standard (epsilon142Nd = -0.07 to -0.15). Within a mafic amphibolite unit, 142Nd/144Nd ratios correlate positively with Sm/Nd ratios and produce a 146Sm-142Nd isochron with an age of 4280(-81)(+53) million years. These rocks thus sample incompatible-element-enriched material formed shortly after Earth formation and may represent the oldest preserved crustal section on Earth.

    A novel procedure has been developed for the measurement of (143)Nd/(144)Nd isotope ratio in various uranium-bearing materials, such as uranium ores and ore concentrates (UOC) in order to evaluate the usefulness and applicability of variations of (143)Nd/(144)Nd isotope ratio for provenance assessment in nuclear forensics. Neodymium was separated and pre-concentrated by extraction chromatography and then the isotope ratios were measured by multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS). The method was validated by the measurement of standard reference materials (La Jolla, JB-2 and BCR-2) and the applicability of the procedure was demonstrated by the analysis of uranium samples of world-wide origin. The investigated samples show distinct (143)Nd/(144)Nd ratio depending on the ore type, deposit age and Sm/Nd ratio. Together with other characteristics of the material in question, the Nd isotope ratio is a promising signature for nuclear forensics and suggests being indicative of the source material, the uranium ore.

    Fluorescence spectroscopy in combination with UV absorption spectroscopy was carried out to investigate the interaction between the neodymium-naproxen complex (Nd-NAP) and calf thymus DNA (ctDNA). The experimental results showed that Nd-NAP intercalated with the ctDNA base pairs. Analysis of fluorescence quenching data of Nd-NAP by ctDNA at different temperatures using a Stern-Volmer equation revealed that dynamic and static quenching occurred simultaneously. The binding constants and the number of binding sites at 293 and 310 K were obtained as 2.904 × 10(4) L mol(-1), 1.172 and 2.432 × 10(4) L mol(-1), 1.143, respectively. The thermodynamic parameters ΔG, ΔH, and ΔS calculated at different temperatures indicated that hydrogen bonding and van der Waals force were the main binding forces.

  20. Variations in the neodymium and strontium isotopic composition and REE content of molluscan shells from the Cretaceous Western Interior seaway

    Rare earth element concentrations, [epsilon][sub ND](T) values, and strontium isotopic compositions of mollusc shells were used to trace variations in the neodymium and strontium isotopic composition of the epicontinental Late Cretaceous Western Interior seaway of North America. Rare earth element patterns are different in aragonite and calcite produced by the molluscs endemic to the seaway, indicating that either mineralogical control or possibly scavenging by organic films associated with the different phases of biogenic carbonate resulted in differential partitioning of the REEs from seawater during shell formation. The biogenic carbonate also may contain REEs associated with Fe-flocs trapped in the shells during growth, but these flocs cannot result in different REE patterns of aragonite and calcite produced by the molluscs. The neodymium isotopic composition of the Western Interior seaway is inferred to have varied 13 [epsilon]-units over 20 My as a result of incursions of seawater from the Arctic Ocean and Gulf of Mexico, river influx from tectonically active terranes, benthic diagenetic fluxes, and volcanic ash falls. Ash from a variety of volcanic centers in western North America was significant in producing rapid and marked changes in [sup 143]Nd/[sup 144]Nd ratios of the seaway, and abrupt regional variations in neodymium isotopic composition of the seaway make the construction of an accurate neodymium isotope evolution curve difficult for this basin. Strontium isotopic compositions of the mollusc shells indicate the [sup 87]Sr/[sup 86]Sr ratio of the Western Interior seaway was generally similar to contemporaneous oceans, although, periodically, the basin had strontium isotopic compositions distinct from contemporaneous seawater. 58 refs., 7 figs., 3 tabs.

    Small metallic nanoparticles of neodymium are obtained by a facile route based on the biosynthesis and the pH conditions that demonstrate the possibility of obtaining particles of 1-8 nm. The size is controlled by synthesis conditions. Smaller clusters were obtained with pH = 5, while for pH = 10 evidences of nanorods productions are found and this opens the perspective to use this rare-earth element for zero and one dimensional based applications. Using transmission electron microscopy techniques, the size distribution and structure are studied. Density functional theory-based calculations allow the determination of the lowest energy configuration, which is based on the hexagonal bulk symmetry. Theoretical models are used to simulate the high resolution transmission electron microscopy to identify the experimental image, determining that the synthesized nanoparticles reach the lowest energy hexagonal configurations.

    Neodymium (III) ion-imprinted polymer (IIP) materials were prepared by the copolymerization of neodymium (III)-5,7-dichloroquinoline-8-ol-4-vinylpyridine ternary complex with styrene(monomer), divinyl benzene (crosslinking monomer) in the presence of 2,2'-azobisisobutyronitrile (initiator). The synthesis was carried out in 2-methoxy ethanol medium (porogen) and the resultant material was filtered, washed, dried and powdered to form unleached IIP particles. The imprint ion was removed by stirring the above particles with 50% (v/v) HCl for 6 h to obtain leached IIP particles with cavities in the polymer particles. Control polymer (CP) particles were similarly prepared without imprint ion, i.e. neodymium (III). CP, unleached and leached IIP particles were characterized by TLC, IR, microanalysis, XRD and UV-visible spectrophotometric studies. The preconcentration of 5-150 microg of neodymium (III) ions present in 500 ml of solution was possible with as little as 40 mg of neodymium (III) IIP particles in the pH range 7.5-8.0 with a detection limit of 50 ng/l. Five replicate determinations of 25 microg of neodymium (III) present in 500 ml of solution gave a mean absorbance of 0.120 with a relative standard deviation of 2.65%. The imprinting effect of IIP particles was noticed in all preconcentration and selectivity studies when compared with CP particles. Furthermore, the selectivity coefficients of neodymium (III) IIP particles were much higher compared with the reported separation factors for the best liquid-liquid extractants, viz. di-2-ethylhexyl phosphoric acid and 2-ethylhexyl-ethylhexyl phosphonate. Kinetic and isotherm studies during rebinding of neodymium (III) onto IIP particles were also carried out.

  12. Boundary processes traced by neodymium isotopes

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jeandel, C.; Lacan, F.

    2003-04-01

    Continental margins have been identified as preferential sites for removing of reactive elements from the ocean, on the base of U-series measurements (more specifically 231Pa/230Th). This process is called boundary scavenging (Bacon, 1988). Five years of neodymium isotopes data in water masses along the ocean margins (Indonesia, Papua New Guinea, Greenland-Scotland ridge and Labrador Sea) suggests that Nd is transferred from the sediments to the ocean but the reverse also occurs via the so-called boundary scavenging. These processes are only detectable by isotopic ratio measurements because they affect the isotopic signature of the water mass coming in contact with the margin, without changing its concentration. They can involve much higher fluxes than net input processes: for example, the modification of the AAIW signature along the Papua New Guinea slope involves exchange processes only (Lacan and Jeandel, 2001). Since we suspect that such processes not only affect the Nd oceanic chemistry but also the chemical fate of other reactive elements in the ocean, we suggest that the concept of boundary scavenging should be extended to "boundary exchange".

  13. Nonaqueous Synthesis of Gadolinium and Neodymium Nanoparticles

    Nanoparticles are of great interest due to their magnetic properties, such as superparamagnetism, that are not exhibited by their bulk counterparts. Gd and Nd are being tested by applying the reverse micelle method. The reverse micelle method consists of using a surfactant with a large nonpolar solvent to polar solvent ratio to form spherical cages that control the size of the products. Many studies involving the reverse micelle method employ water as the polar solvent. Since Gd and Nd are highly reactive to water, methanol is used as a replacement with hexane or heptane as the nonpolar solvent. Gadolinium chloride or neodymium nitrate are reduced using sodium borohydride after the reverse micelles encapsulate the rare earth compound. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and light microscopy show small, spherical clusters with diameters in the micron range. Higher magnification of the SEM melted the clusters, even after cooling the sample to 87 K. The sample was coated with Pt to prevent melting. Energy dispersive x-ray measurements were conducted to find the chemical composition of the clusters, but the sample signals were too small to make a conclusion. Future growths will use the surfactant DDAB instead of AOT since DDAB is more stable when examined with SEM. Research at California State University-Fresno is supported by NSF DMR-1104544.

  14. Samarium-neodymium evolution of meteorites

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Prinzhofer, A.; Papanastassiou, D. A.; Wasserburg, G. J.

    1992-01-01

    The feasibility of using Sm-147 and Sm-146 as chronometers was investigated using Sm-Nd data obtained on three meteorites: Ibitira, Morristown, and Acapulco. The results of isotope analyses demonstrate the presence of in situ decay of short-lived Sm-146 in these meteorites with initial abundances of Sm-146/Sm-144 between 0.009 and 0.007 in different meteorites. Precisely defined Sm-147/Nd-143 internal isochrons were obtained yielding ages equal to 4.46 +/-0.02 AE for Ibitira, 4.47 +/-0.02 AE for Morristown, and 4.60 +/-0.03 AE for Acapulco. However, detailed examination of the coupled Sm-147/Nd-143 and Sm-146/Nd-142 parent-daughter systematics and of initial Nd-143/Nd-144 values indicated the presence of inconsistencies in the data in spite of the precise isochrons, indicating the need for care in the interpretation of the parent-daughter systematics, even when they appear well behaved.

  15. Neodymium isotopic characterization of Ross Sea Bottom Water and its advection through the southern South Pacific

    2015-06-01

    Since the inception of the international GEOTRACES program, studies investigating the distribution of trace elements and their isotopes in the global ocean have significantly increased. In spite of this large-scale effort, the distribution of neodymium isotopes (143Nd/144Nd, εNd) and concentrations ([Nd]) in the high latitude South Pacific is still understudied, specifically north of the Antarctic Polar Front (APF). Here we report dissolved Nd isotopes and concentrations from 11 vertical water column profiles from the South Pacific between South America and New Zealand and across the Antarctic frontal system. Results confirm that Ross Sea Bottom Water (RSBW) is represented by an εNd value of ∼ - 7, and for the first time show that these Nd characteristics can be traced into the Southeast Pacific until progressive mixing with ambient Lower Circumpolar Deep Water (LCDW) dilutes this signal north of the APF. That is, εNd behaves conservatively in RSBW, opening a path for studies of past RSBW behavior. Neodymium concentrations show low surface concentrations and a linear increase with depth north of the APF. South of the APF, surface [Nd] is high and increases with depth but remains almost constant below ∼1000 m. This vertical and spatial [Nd] pattern follows the southward shoaling density surfaces of the Southern Ocean and hence suggests supply of Nd to the upper ocean through upwelling of Nd-rich deep water. Low particle abundance due to reduced opal production and seasonal sea ice cover likely contributes to the maintenance of the high upper ocean [Nd] south of the APF. This suggests a dominant lateral transport component on [Nd] and a reduced vertical control on Nd concentrations in the South Pacific south of the APF.

  18. Samarium-neodymium direct dating of fluorite mineralization.

    PubMed

    Chesley, J T; Halliday, A N; Scrivener, R C

    1991-05-17

    The direct dating of many styles of hydrothermal mineralization has proved difficult, limiting understanding of the geological processes that lead to crustal fluid flow and the formation of major ore deposits. The hydrothermal mineral fluorite (CaF(2)) displays large variations in rare earth element (REE) abundance and samarium/neodymium ratios within a single vein. Samarium-neodymium dating of fluorite from the classic granite-hosted tin deposits of southwest England demonstrates its use as a precise chronometer of mineralization. The concentrations of light rare earth elements (LREEs) in the fluorites are highly variable and suggest the coeval precipitation of an LREE-rich phase as the most likely cause of the extreme variation in samarium/neodymium ratios.

    The environmental conditions leading to deep water anoxia in the Eastern Mediterranean during sapropel formation remain controversial. It is broadly accepted that sapropels are the result of either water column stagnation or increased export production, or both. Oxygen isotopes indicate reduced surface-water salinities during sapropel formation, which would have facilitated deep-water stagnation via convective stabilisation of the water column. A number of sources for the additional freshwater have been proposed, including glacial meltwater influx, increased outflow from European rivers, increased precipitation over the Mediterranean region as a whole, and increased Nile outflow due to intensification of the African monsoon. Oxygen isotopes by themselves cannot fully distinguish between these various possibilities. Though the exact mode of incorporation of neodymium (Nd) into foraminiferal tests remains a matter of debate, Nd isotopes in sedimentary planktonic foraminifera clearly record those in surface seawater and not any other part of the water column or the sediment1,2. Here we present Nd isotopic data for both the present-day Nile and for sedimentary foraminifera from ODP core 967, which demonstrate a significant increase in Nile outflow during the formation of sapropel S5. Samples of Nile river water were collected from the Sudan in the dry season and analysed for neodymium isotope compositions. These analyses clearly show that the River Nile has both a very high neodymium concentration compared to the Mediterranean and a distinct 143Nd/144Nd ratio. \\epsilonNd (defined as ((143Nd/144Ndsample)/(143Nd/ 144NdCHUR)-1)\\times104) for the main Nile around and below Khartoum is -3. In the wet season (sampling in progress), the Blue Nile (\\epsilonNd = +1) dominates over the White Nile (\\epsilonNd = -16) and the total Nile discharge is vastly greater, so that the annually-integrated \\epsilonNd of the main Nile should be even higher than -3. In contrast, the

    Using a rabbit model we investigated the role of pigmentation of the ciliary body in obtaining ciliodestruction by neodymium-YAG transscleral cyclophotocoagulation. There was marked destruction of the ciliary body in pigmented rabbit eyes, but no histologic effect was observed in albino rabbit eyes. These findings suggest that pigmentation of the ciliary body is important for obtaining the desired response from neodymium-YAG transscleral cyclophotocoagulation in rabbit eyes by our technique. Further study is necessary to define the role of pigmentation in human eyes in this treatment modality.

    A high-strength neodymium laser glass (SNLG) based on an alumoborophosphate composition is developed and synthesised; its physicochemical, spectral, luminescent, and lasing characteristics are studied. It is found that the chemical stability and thermal resistance of the new glass are considerably higher than the corresponding characteristics of known neodymium-doped phosphate laser glasses. Investigations of lasing upon longitudinal diode pumping showed that, due to the higher thermal resistance, the new glass allows one to obtain output powers twice as high as those of industrial GLS22 glass.

  18. Recycling potential of neodymium: the case of computer hard disk drives.

    PubMed

    Sprecher, Benjamin; Kleijn, Rene; Kramer, Gert Jan

    2014-08-19

    Neodymium, one of the more critically scarce rare earth metals, is often used in sustainable technologies. In this study, we investigate the potential contribution of neodymium recycling to reducing scarcity in supply, with a case study on computer hard disk drives (HDDs). We first review the literature on neodymium production and recycling potential. From this review, we find that recycling of computer HDDs is currently the most feasible pathway toward large-scale recycling of neodymium, even though HDDs do not represent the largest application of neodymium. We then use a combination of dynamic modeling and empirical experiments to conclude that within the application of NdFeB magnets for HDDs, the potential for loop-closing is significant: up to 57% in 2017. However, compared to the total NdFeB production capacity, the recovery potential from HDDs is relatively small (in the 1-3% range). The distributed nature of neodymium poses a significant challenge for recycling of neodymium.

    In the frame of a systematic study of activation cross sections of deuteron induced nuclear reactions on rare earths, the reactions on neodymium for production of therapeutic radionuclides were measured for the first time. The excitation functions of the natNd(d,x) 151,150,149,148m,148g,146,144,143Pm, 149,147,139mNd, 142Pr and 139gCe nuclear reactions were assessed by using the stacked foil activation technique and high resolution γ-spectrometry. The experimental excitation functions were compared to the theoretical predictions calculated with the modified model codes ALICE-IPPE-D and EMPIRE-II-D and with the data in the TENDL-2012 library based on latest version of the TALYS code. The application of the data in the field of medical isotope production and nuclear reaction theory is discussed.

    Cerium, neodymium and gadolinium contain double beta active isotopes. The most interesting are 150Nd and 160Gd (promising for 0ν2β search), 136Ce (2β+ candidate with one of the highest Q2β). The main problem of compounds containing lanthanide elements is their high radioactive contamination by uranium, radium, actinium and thorium. The new generation 2β experiments require development of methods for a deep purification of lanthanides from the radioactive elements. A combination of physical and chemical methods was applied to purify cerium, neodymium and gadolinium. Liquid-liquid extraction technique was used to remove traces of Th and U from neodymium, gadolinium and for purification of cerium from Th, U, Ra and K. Co-precipitation and recrystallization methods were utilized for further reduction of the impurities. The radioactive contamination of the samples before and after the purification was tested by using ultra-low-background HPGe gamma spectrometry. As a result of the purification procedure the radioactive contamination of gadolinium oxide (a similar purification efficiency was reached also with cerium and neodymium oxides) was decreased from 0.12 Bq/kg to 0.007 Bq/kg in 228Th, from 0.04 Bq/kg to <0.006 Bq/kg in 226Ra, and from 0.9 Bq/kg to 0.04 Bq/kg in 40K. The purification methods are much less efficient for chemically very similar radioactive elements like actinium, lanthanum and lutetium.

Information from various resources like the Korean Ministry of Environment, Korea international trade association, United Nations Commodity Trade Statistics Database and from individual industry were collected and analyzed for materials flow analysis of neodymium. Demand of neodymium in the Republic of Korea for the year 2010 was 409.5 tons out of which the majority of neodymium, i.e., 68.41% was consumed by domestic electronics industry followed by medical appliances manufacturing (13.36%). The Republic Korea is one of the biggest consumer and leading exporter of these industrial products, absolutely depends on import of neodymium, as the country is lacking natural resources. The Republic of Korea has imported 325.9 tons of neodymium permanent magnet and 79.5 tons of neodymium containing equipment parts mainly for electronics, medical appliances, and heavy/light vehicles manufacturing industry. Out of which 95.4 tons of neodymium permanent magnet get exported as an intermediate product and 140.6 tons of neodymium in the form of consumable products get exported. Worldwide the neodymium is at the high end of supply chain critical metal because of increasing demand, scarcity and irreplaceable for technological application. To bring back the neodymium to supply stream the recycling of end of life neodymium-bearing waste can be a feasible option. Out of total domestic consumption, only 21.9 tons of neodymium have been collected and subsequently recycled. From material flow analysis, the requirement for an efficient recycling system and element-wise material flow management for these REEs in the Republic of Korea were realized and recommended.

    Inferring the melting process at mid-ocean ridges, and the physical conditions under which melting takes place, usually relies on the assumption of compositional similarity between all mid-ocean-ridge basalt sources. Models of mantle melting therefore tend to be restricted to those that consider the presence of only one lithology in the mantle, peridotite. Evidence from xenoliths and peridotite massifs show that after peridotite, pyroxenite and eclogite are the most abundant rock types in the mantle. But at mid-ocean ridges, where most of the melting takes place, and in ophiolites, pyroxenite is rarely found. Here we present neodymium isotopic compositions of abyssal peridotites to investigate whether peridotite can indeed be the sole source for mid-ocean-ridge basalts. By comparing the isotopic compositions of basalts and peridotites at two segments of the southwest Indian ridge, we show that a component other than peridotite is required to explain the low end of the (143)Nd/(144)Nd variations of the basalts. This component is likely to have a lower melting temperature than peridotite, such as pyroxenite or eclogite, which could explain why it is not observed at mid-ocean ridges.

    MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are endogenously expressed 20-24 nucleotide RNAs thought to repress protein translation through binding to a target mRNA (1-3). Only a few of the more than 250 predicted human miRNAs have been assigned any biological function. In an effort to uncover miRNAs important during adipocyte differentiation, antisense oligonucleotides (ASOs) targeting 86 human miRNAs were transfected into cultured human pre-adipocytes, and their ability to modulate adipocyte differentiation was evaluated. Expression of 254 miRNAs in differentiating adipocytes was also examined on a miRNA microarray. Here we report that the combination of expression data and functional assay results identified a role for miR-143 in adipocyte differentiation. miR-143 levels increased in differentiating adipocytes, and inhibition of miR-143 effectively inhibited adipocyte differentiation. In addition, protein levels of the proposed miR-143 target ERK5 (4) were higher in ASO-treated adipocytes. These results demonstrate that miR-143 is involved in adipocyte differentiation and may act through target gene ERK5.

  10. Dissociation of cerium(III) and neodymium(III) phthalocyanines

    Lomova, T. N.

    2015-07-01

    The kinetics of dissociation of phthalocyanine complexes with cerium(III) and neodymium(III) (X)LnPc (X = Cl-, Br-, AcO-) under the action of acetic acid in ethanol with isolation of the macrocyclic ligand depending on the temperature was studied. The kinetic equations with the numerical values of rate constants, activation parameters, and the stoichiometric mechanisms with the limiting simple reaction between the nonionized AcOH molecule and (phthalocyaninato)lanthanide(III) in the axially coordinated ((X)LnPc, cerium complexes) or axially ionized ([(AcOH)LnPc]+X-, neodymium complexes) state were derived by solving the direct and inverse problems. As shown by a comparative analysis of quantitative kinetic data, the state is determined by the electronic structure of the metal cation and the mutual effect of the axial and equatorial ligands in the first coordination sphere.

  11. Neodymium-YAG laser vitreolysis in sickle cell retinopathy

    Six patients with proliferative sickle cell retinopathy and vitreous bands were treated with the neodymium-YAG (Nd-YAG) laser to accomplish lysis of avascular traction bands or to clear the media in front of the macula. Transection of bands was possible in five of the six cases but in two of these the effect was only partial. Three cases were satisfactorily treated with the Nd-YAG laser application alone, two eventually required conventional vitreoretinal surgery, and one patient's condition stabilized despite failure of the treatment. Complications from the treatment occurred in three cases and included subretinal (choroidal) hemorrhage, preretinal hemorrhage, microperforation of a retinal vein, and focal areas of damage to the retinal pigment epithelium. Neodymium-YAG vitreolysis may be a useful modality in carefully selected patients with proliferative sickle cell retinopathy, but potentially sight-threatening complications may occur.

    O'Neil et al. (Reports, 26 September 2008, p. 1828) presented neodymium-142 data for rocks from northern Quebec, Canada, and suggested that these rocks may represent the oldest preserved crustal section on Earth. We argue that the age of the rocks is based on a spurious correlation between rocks that are probably not co-genetic and negative (142)Nd anomalies that may be the result of an analytical artifact.

    In parallel with technological developments, small size but strong magnets are commonly used in modern devices. In terms of foreign body injuries, magnet injuries are quite rare. However, due to their unique characteristics, there are some difficulties in their management. The magnetic field generated by the magnet affects the surgical instruments and make treatment difficult. In this case report, a nasal injury due to neodymium magnet and our alternative approach for its management was reported.

  14. Complexation of di-amides of dipicolinic acid with neodymium

    Di-amides have undergone significant studies as possible ligands for use in the partitioning of trivalent minor actinides and lanthanides. The binding affinities of three isomeric ligands with neodymium in acetonitrile solution have been investigated. The stability constants of the metal-ligand complexes formed between different isomers of N,N'-diethyl-N,N'- ditolyl-di-picolinamide (EtTDPA) and trivalent neodymium in acetonitrile have been determined by spectrophotometric and calorimetric methods. Each isomer of EtTDPA has been found to be capable of forming three complexes with trivalent neodymium, Nd(EtTDPA), Nd(EtTDPA){sub 2}, and Nd(EtTDPA){sub 3}. Values from spectrophotometric and calorimetric titrations are within reasonable agreement with each other. The order of stability constants for each metal:ligand complex decreases in the order Et(m)TDPA > Et(p)TDPA > Et(o)TDPA. The obtained values are comparable to other di-amidic ligands obtained under similar system conditions and mirror previously obtained solvent extraction data for EtTDPA at low ionic strengths.

    The isotope effects of neodymium in Nd-glycolate ligand exchange system were studied by using ion exchange chromatography. The separation coefficients of neodymium isotopes, ε’s, were calculated from the observed isotopic ratios at the front and rear boundaries of the neodymium adsorption band. The values of separation coefficients of neodymium isotopes, ε’s, for the Nd-glycolate ligand exchange system were compared with those of Nd-malate and Nd-citrate, which indicated that the isotope effects of neodymium as studied by the three ligands takes the following direction Malate > Citrate > Glycolate. This order agrees with the number of available sites for complexation of each ligand. The values of the plate height, HETP of Nd in Nd-ligand exchange systems were also calculated. PMID:25685410

  14. Do foraminifera accurately record seawater neodymium isotope composition?

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Scrivner, Adam; Skinner, Luke; Vance, Derek

    2010-05-01

    Palaeoclimate studies involving the reconstruction of past Atlantic meridional overturning circulation increasingly employ isotopes of neodymium (Nd), measured on a variety of sample media (Frank, 2002). In the open ocean, Nd isotopes are a conservative tracer of water mass mixing and are unaffected by biological and low-temperature fractionation processes (Piepgras and Wasserburg, 1987; Lacan and Jeandel, 2005). For decades, benthic foraminifera have been widely utilised in stable isotope and geochemical studies, but have only recently begun to be exploited as a widely distributed, high-resolution Nd isotope archive (Klevenz et al., 2008), potentially circumventing the difficulties associated with other methods used to recover past deep-water Nd isotopes (Klevenz et al., 2008; Rutberg et al., 2000; Tachikawa et al., 2004). Thus far, a single pilot study (Klevenz et al., 2008) has indicated that core-top sedimentary benthic foraminifera record a Nd isotope composition in agreement with the nearest available bottom seawater data, and has suggested that this archive is potentially useful on both millennial and million-year timescales. Here we present seawater and proximal core-top foraminifer Nd isotope data for samples recovered during the 2008 "RETRO" cruise of the Marion Dufresne. The foraminifer samples comprise a depth-transect spanning 3000m of the water column in the Angola Basin and permit a direct comparison between high-resolution water column and core-top foraminiferal Nd isotope data. We use these data to assess the reliability of both planktonic and benthic foraminifera as recorders of water column neodymium isotope composition. Frank, M., 2002.

    1997-06-01

    The number and correlation of skin stroma cells was studied on mice C57B1 with the subcutaneously transplanted melanoma B16 which was exposed to neodymium pulsed laser radiation. Within 1-5 days after the exposure the total number of the free skin stroma cells was found to increase in the periphery from the radiation epicenter and the number of lymphocytes, macrophages and leucocytes tended to grow. Lymphoid infiltration was also revealed in the preparations of the epithelized wound and cicatrix on the skin melanoma sites in the patients who had undergone pulsed laser radiation therapy.

  16. Pulsed neodymium-YAG laser trabeculotomy: energy requirements and replicability.

    Dutton, G N; Allan, D; Cameron, S A

    1989-01-01

    Short pulsed laser trabeculotomy has been shown to reduce intraocular pressure in patients with primary open angle glaucoma. This study seeks to determine the energy levels required to produce a fistula into the canal of Schlemm for four different Q-switched neodymium-YAG lasers. The laser was fired at fixed human trabecular meshwork specimens at a range of energy settings for each laser and the characteristics and replicability of the lesions produced were analysed. Energy levels between 3 and 5 mJ were sufficient to produce fistulae into the canal of Schlemm with an approximately 50% success rate for each instrument. Images PMID:2706207

  17. Effect of transscleral neodymium: YAG cyclophotocoagulation on intraocular lenses

    1990-03-01

    A neodymium: YAG laser operating in the thermal mode was used to irradiate isolated intraocular lenses (IOLs) and to perform transscleral cyclophotocoagulation on pseudophakic autopsy eyes to investigate the potential damage to IOL haptics such irradiation may cause. In the isolated IOLs, 70 mJ of energy deformed and partially melted both polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) and polypropylene haptics. One of the capsular-fixated PC-IOL haptics in an autopsy eye partially melted when irradiated with the maximum energy level (8.8 J), with the aiming beam focused 1 mm posterior to the limbus and maximal posterior focus offset.

  18. Implications for post-comminution processes in subglacial suspended sediment using coupled radiogenic strontium and neodymium isotopes

    Enhanced physical weathering rates in subglacial systems promote high levels of comminution, transport, and deposition of fine-grained sediment within the subglacial drainage network. The impact of shifts in sediment loads from variations in meltwater flux, and their effects on downstream ecosystems, remains poorly quantified and places a fundamental importance on our ability to characterize subglacial depositional environments. Here, for the first time, we assess the seasonal evolution of the subglacial suspended sediment using coupled radiogenic strontium (87Sr/86Sr) and neodymium (143Nd/144Nd) isotopic ratios with elemental ratios and in situ measurements. Weathering rates in fluvial and riverine systems have been traditionally assessed using radiogenic isotopic tracers: 143Nd/144Nd ratios relate to the crustal age whereas 87Sr/86Sr ratios relate to age and preferential mineral dissolution. Thus relative shifts in these ratios will allow us to characterize distinct sediment transport networks. We apply this technique to the Lemon Creek Glacier (LCG), Alaska, USA, and to the Athabasca Glacier (AG), Alberta, CA. At the LCG, the 143Nd/144Nd values range from εNd of - 4.6 (0.9) to - 8.7 (0.2), which suggests a poorly mixed sediment flux. However, the greatest period of variability may correlate with the drainage of a supraglacial lake and suggests caution should be exerted in time-scale 143Nd/144Nd provenance studies that may be affected by climatic disturbances. In contrast, limited variation is observed within the AG 143Nd/144Nd seasonal record. A consistent, direct relation between the Rb/Sr elemental ratio and the 87Sr/86Sr ratio proves interesting as it enables us to unravel incongruent weathering trends in the radiogenic Sr record. Correlation between the 87Sr/86Sr and total discharge suggests that the process is partially controlled by mantling of the bedrock, which can be detected using post-comminution ages. While the subglacial structure may be enabled by

  19. Incorporation of cerium and neodymium in uranyl phases

    2006-07-01

    The potential for incorporating rare earth elements (REE) into/onto crystalline compounds has been evaluated by precipitating uranyl phases from aqueous solutions containing either cerium or neodymium. These REEs serve both as monitors for evaluating the potential repository behavior of REE radionuclides, and as surrogate elements for actinides (e.g., Ce 4+ and Nd 3+ for Pu 4+ and Am 3+, respectively). The present experiments examined the behavior of REE in the presence of ianthinite ([U24+(UO2)4O6(OH)4(H2O)4](H2O)5), becquerelite (Ca(UO 2) 6O 4(OH) 6(H 2O) 8), and other uranyl hydroxide compounds commonly noted as alteration products during the corrosion of UO 2, spent nuclear fuel, and naturally occurring uraninite. The results of these experiments demonstrate that significant quantities of both cerium ( Kd = 1020) and neodymium ( Kd = 840) are incorporated within the uranium alteration phases and suggest that ionic substitution and/or adsorption to the uranyl phases can play a key role in the limiting the mobility of REE (and by analogy, actinide elements) in a nuclear waste repository.

  20. Magnetic behaviour of Neodymium-substituted strontium hexaferrite

    Bhat, Bilal Hamid; Want, Basharat

    2016-03-01

    Neodymium-substituted strontium hexaferrites, Sr1- x Nd x Fe12O19 ( x = 0, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20), have been successfully synthesized by using citrate precursor method. The synthesized samples were characterized by X-ray diffraction, Transmission electron microscopy and vibrating sample magnetometry. The X-ray diffraction results show that the prepared samples are crystalline in nature and are of single phase with the space group P63/mmc. Transmission electron microscopy results show that the prepared sample is composed of fine nanoparticles with an average size of 80 nm. The effect on magnetic behaviour of strontium hexaferrite with neodymium substitution was analysed by using first-order reversal curves (FORCs). FORC analysis was done in order to know the domain state of magnetization of the nanoparticles and the nature of magnetic interactions among the particles. FORC diagrams depict a single peak, suggesting that the substituted systems are formed of interacting nanoparticles.

  1. Origin of the Sudbury Complex by meteoritic impact: Neodymium isotopic evidence

    USGS Publications Warehouse

    Faggart, B.E.; Basu, A.R.; Tatsumoto, M.

    1985-01-01

    Samarium-neodymium isotopic data on whole rocks and minerals of the Sudbury Complex in Canada gave an igneous crystallization age of 1840 ?? 21 ?? 106 years. The initial epsilon neodymium values for 15 whole rocks are similar to those for average upper continental crust, falling on the crustal trend of neodymium isotopic evolution as defined by shales. The rare earth element concentration patterns of Sudbury rocks are also similar to upper crustal averages. These data suggest that the Sudbury Complex formed from melts generated in the upper crust and are consistent with a meteoritic impact.

    1998-01-01

    A method of producing neodymium in an electrolytic cell without formation of perfluorinated carbon gases (PFCs), the method comprising the steps of providing an electrolyte in the electrolytic cell and providing an anode in an anode region of the electrolyte and providing a cathode in a cathode region of the electrolytic cell. Dissolving an oxygen-containing neodymium compound in the electrolyte in the anode region and maintaining a more intense electrolyte circulation in the anode region than in the cathode region. Passing an electrolytic current between said anode and said cathode and depositing neodymium metal at the cathode, preventing the formation of perfluorinated carbon gases by limiting anode over voltage.

  7. Analysis of the structure and Mössbauer study of the neodymium substitution in the Sr-hexaferrite

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Pérez-Juache, T. J.; Guerrero, A. L.; Cabal-Velarde, J. G.; Mirabal-García, M.; Palomares-Sánchez, S. A.; Matutes-Aquino, J. A.

    This work reads on the obtainment of the strontium hexaferrite substituted with neodymium in its pure phase using the solid state reaction method. The solubility of neodymium on the strontium hexaferrite was investigated according with the formula Sr1-xNdxFe12O19, for x=0.00, 0.05, 0.10, 0.15, 0.20 and 0.25. Results indicate that neodymium is soluble in the hexaferrite until x=0.15. In samples with higher neodymium content there are traces of secondary phases. Analysis of magnetic and structural properties was performed in function of the neodymium content, always in its solubility range. From the structural properties, it was observed that the addition of a little neodymium quantity in the Sr-hexaferrite causes an important reduction of the unit cell volume. Also, magnetic properties are strongly linked to the structural behavior, in this case a trend to reduce the magnetization of the samples was detected when neodymium content increased, which can be explained in terms of fluctuations of the superexchange coupling conducted by the neodymium interactions with the structure. Mössbauer analysis was carried out in order to analyze the effects of the neodymium substitution on the hyperfine parameters, as well as to confirm the preferential site of the neodymium substitution in the Sr-hexaferrite.

  8. A new contact neodymium: YAG laser for cyclophotocoagulation

    A newly developed compact (40 kg), self-contained contact Neodymium:YAG laser produces high-peak, high-energy (800 mJ/pulse), short (1.0 millisecond) pulses with 1 to 3 pulses/exposure. Energy is delivered via a 320-microns cleaved quartz fiber optic probe. Cyclophotocoagulation was performed in five eyes of three medium-sized Dutch-pigmented rabbits. The eyes received exposures of 1 to 3 pulses/exposure. Energy delivered ranged from 100 to 800 mJ/pulse. Histopathology revealed ciliary body disruption and hemorrhage with no damage to overlying sclera. When used for transscleral cyclodiathermy in the rabbit, the laser created significant ciliary body disruption with minimal scleral injury.

  9. Segmental irradiation of the bladder with neodymium YAG laser irradiation

    The Neodymium YAG laser energy source can be readily adapted for cystoscopic use by some simple modifications of existing urologic equipment. Both the fiberoptic resectoscope and a deflecting cystourethroscope have been adapted for this purpose. Fixation of the fiber tip 1 cm. from the target and use of a divergent beam of 36 degrees allows the delivery of standardized dosage to a relatively large bladder tissue volume. Animal experiments involving 35 mongrel dogs established that repetitive overlapping doses of 200 joules ech can successfully treat a large area of bladder resulting in a full thickness bladder wall injury. This technique has been used in 4 high risk patients with infiltrating bladder cancer without adverse sequelae. The ability to reliably produce a full thickness lesion may give this modality a therapeutic advantage over conventional cautery techniques especially for the treatment of residual infiltrative carcinoma.

    The morphology and particle size of neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles were tailored through fabrication under mild hydrothermal conditions (T = 150-250 degrees C, P = autogeneous, t = 18 h) for the first time using two surface modifiers: caprylic acid and n-butylamine. Characterization of these nanoparticles was carried out using powder XRD, FTIR, SEM, zeta-potential analysis and UV-vis spectroscopy. The results revealed that modification of ZnO nanoparticles using neodymium as a dopant and caprylic acid or n-butylamine as a surfactant could change the optical and physical properties of the surface-modified neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles. The work proved the efficiency of caprylic acid and n-butylamine as suitable surfactants for surface modification of neodymium-doped ZnO hybrid nanoparticles.

    In this study we examined 17 explanted silicone intraocular lenses (IOLs) (two one-piece, 15 three-piece) that had evidence of neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser damage. The majority of lenses (47.1%) had been explanted because of persistent pigment deposits and chronic inflammation. Decentration or IOL dislocation had occurred with 29.4% of lenses. All 17 patients had had Nd:YAG laser posterior capsulectomy, anterior surface polishing, or both; treatments ranged from one to 13 times. By both clinical and gross examination, the laser lesions appeared dark. This was misinterpreted by some opthalmologists as pigment deposits and some patients had additional Nd:YAG laser treatment, which increased the severity of the laser damage. The mean depth of laser damage on the IOLs was 143 +/- 113.4 microns. It was between 51 and 175 microns in approximately 61.0% and deeper than 300 microns (maximum 660 microns) in 9.3%. We compared the explanted IOLs with silicone IOLs that were experimentally damaged using standard power levels from 0.3 to 3.0 mJ and different focal areas. The appearance of the experimentally induced laser burns was equivalent to that on the explanted IOLs, especially the dark laser pits. Since the laser lesions may resemble pigment deposits on slitlamp examination, we recommend careful examination of patients prior to planned laser therapy.

    Combined neodymium and strontium isotope studies on Tertiary volcanics from northwest Scotland indicate that their parental mantle isotopic compositions have been substantially modified in many instances by contamination with the Precambrian continental crust through which they were erupted. The occurrence of samarium-neodymium and rubidium-strontium "pseudoisochrons" of different ages in these contaminated continental volcanics indicates that they are artifacts of the contamination processes and have no temporal significance with respect to mantle fractionation events.

    Experimental determinations of the diffusion coefficients of samarium and neodymium in almandine garnet and theoretical considerations show that one cannot assign a sufficiently restricted range of closure temperature, TC, to the samarium-neodymium decay system in garnet for the purpose of constraining the cooling rate. However, it is shown that the samarium-neodymium cooling age of garnet can be used to calculate both cooling rate and TC if the temperature and age at the peak metamorphic conditions are known.

    This study investigates the thermoluminescent sensitivity of neodymium doped SiO2 optical fibre with various dose ranges from 0.5 Gy to 4.0 Gy by 6 MeV photon irradiations. The TL responses of the neodymium doped silica fibres are compared with available TLD-100 dosimeter in order to determine the suitability as a TL material. We found that the TLD-100 and neodymium doped silica fibre have a significant linear signal to dose relationship. Neodymium doped fibres sensitivity is approximately 11% of TLD-100.

  3. Extraction of seawater-derived neodymium from different phases of deep sea sediments by selective leaching

    In order to deduce reliable information about the interaction of the oceans with the climate system as a whole in the past, the reconstruction of water mass circulation is crucial. The analysis of seawater-derived neodymium isotopes (143Nd/144Nd, expressed as ɛNd) in marine sediments provides a unique proxy for deep water provenance in particular in the Atlantic [1]. The ɛNd signature and thus the mixing proportion of the local bottom water masses is archived in authigenic phases in the sediment. Obtaining seawater ɛNd from authigenic accretions bound to foraminiferal tests has lately become the preferred since most reliable method [2]. Attempts have also been made to extract the Nd-rich authigenic metal fraction by leaching it off the bulk sediment and thereby use this proxy with less effort, in the highest possible resolution and in sediments where foraminifera are not sufficiently present. However, often other sedimentary components are also leached in the process and contaminate the extracted Nd [3,4]. In this project several core-top and older sediments across the Atlantic have been leached in ten consecutive steps with either dilute buffered acetic acid or an acid-reductive solution. The leachates were analysed on their elemental and Nd isotope compositions, as well as rare earth element (REE) distributions. By graduating the total leaching procedure into smaller stages the results display which processes take place in the course of sediment leaching in the laboratory and which components of the sediment are most reactive. Thus, they help to better evaluate the quality of sediment leaches for ɛNd analysis. Clearly, organic calcite acts as a fast reacting buffer and at the point where its amount is sufficiently reduced the leaching of other components commences and the Nd concentration peaks. Corruption of the extracted ɛNd signal by non-authigenic sources in many cases occured early in the leaching sequence, indicating that only very cautious leaching

    Neodymium isotope (143Nd/144Nd) compositions from dispersed authigenic ferromanganese oxide fraction in marine sediments, ferromanganese crusts, foraminiferal shells and fossil fish teeth are employed to trace provenance and water mass mixing in the past, having the advantage of not being fractionated by biological processes in the water column. In the modern ocean the different water masses ultimately derive their ɛNd values through continental weathering, erosion and particle-seawater interactions. This geochemical tracer has been only recently applied to scleractinian deep-water coral skeletons sourced from various sites and depths in the Atlantic ocean. Aragonitic corals can be precisely dated by U-series, potentially providing century-long records of intermediate and bathyal zone variability at sub-decadal resolution. Motivated by these recent findings we have investigated the Nd isotopic compositions of living specimens of various calcifying organisms collected in two key locations of the Mediterranean Sea and in the Southern Ocean. In particular, we analyzed several specimens of the aragonitic deep-water corals Desmophyllum dianthus, Lophelia pertusa, Madrepora oculata, Flabellum impensum, the temperate coral Cladocora caespitosa, the calcitic gorgonian coral Corallium rubrum, the bivalves Glans aculeata and Karnekampia bruei and the polychate Serpula vermicularis. Most of the samples were retrieved from the Strait of Sicily and the Southern Adriatic Sea at different water depths. Ten seawater samples from three new profiles in the Mediterranean were also collected at the same locations and depths, offering a unique opportunity to compare the Nd isotopic composition of biogenic carbonates directly with the surrounding ambient seawater. The Mediterranean Sea is particularly suited for this comparison exercise since it is characterized by water masses displaying a large range of ɛNd values, from -10.5 in the Western Mediterranean to -4.8 in the Eastern

    Spatial modes of light can potentially carry a vast amount of information, making them promising candidates for both classical and quantum communication. However, the distribution of such modes over large distances remains difficult. Intermodal coupling complicates their use with common fibers, whereas free-space transmission is thought to be strongly influenced by atmospheric turbulence. Here, we show the transmission of orbital angular momentum modes of light over a distance of 143 km between two Canary Islands, which is 50× greater than the maximum distance achieved previously. As a demonstration of the transmission quality, we use superpositions of these modes to encode a short message. At the receiver, an artificial neural network is used for distinguishing between the different twisted light superpositions. The algorithm is able to identify different mode superpositions with an accuracy of more than 80% up to the third mode order and decode the transmitted message with an error rate of 8.33%. Using our data, we estimate that the distribution of orbital angular momentum entanglement over more than 100 km of free space is feasible. Moreover, the quality of our free-space link can be further improved by the use of state-of-the-art adaptive optics systems.

    As a direct consequence of the no-cloning theorem, the deterministic amplification as in classical communication is impossible for unknown quantum states. This calls for more advanced techniques in a future global quantum network, e.g., for cloud quantum computing. A unique solution is the teleportation of an entangled state, i.e., entanglement swapping, representing the central resource to relay entanglement between distant nodes. Together with entanglement purification and a quantum memory it constitutes a so-called quantum repeater. Since the aforementioned building blocks have been individually demonstrated in laboratory setups only, the applicability of the required technology in real-world scenarios remained to be proven. Here we present a free-space entanglement-swapping experiment between the Canary Islands of La Palma and Tenerife, verifying the presence of quantum entanglement between two previously independent photons separated by 143 km. We obtained an expectation value for the entanglement-witness operator, more than 6 SDs beyond the classical limit. By consecutive generation of the two required photon pairs and space-like separation of the relevant measurement events, we also showed the feasibility of the swapping protocol in a long-distance scenario, where the independence of the nodes is highly demanded. Because our results already allow for efficient implementation of entanglement purification, we anticipate our research to lay the ground for a fully fledged quantum repeater over a realistic high-loss and even turbulent quantum channel.

    Context: The asteroid 25143 Itokawa is one of the candidates for the detection of the Yarkovsky-O'Keefe-Radzievskii-Paddack (YORP) effect in the rotation period. Previous studies were carried out up to the 196 608 facets triangulation model and were not able to provide a good theoretical estimate of this effect, raising questions about the influence of the mesh resolution and the centre of mass location on the evolution the rotation period. Aims: The YORP effect on Itokawa is computed for different topography models up to the highest resolution Gaskell mesh of 3 145 728 triangular faces in an attempt to find the best possible YORP estimate. Other, lower resolution models are also studied and the question of the dependence of the rotation period drift on the density distribution inhomogeneities is reexamined. A comparison is made with 433 Eros models possessing a similar resolution. Methods: The Rubincam approximation (zero conductivity) is assumed in the numerical simulation of the YORP effect in rotation period. The mean thermal radiation torques are summed over triangular facets assuming Keplerian heliocentric motion and uniform rotation around a body-fixed axis. Results: There is no evidence of YORP convergence in Gaskell model family. Differently simplified meshes may converge quickly to their parent models, but this does not prove the quality of YORP computed from the latter. We confirm the high sensitivity of the YORP effect to the fine details of the surface for 25 143 Itokawa and 433 Eros. The sensitivity of the Itokawa YORP to the centre of mass shift is weaker than in earlier works, but instead the results prove to be sensitive to the spin axis orientation in the body frame. Conclusions: Either the sensitivity of the YORP effect is a physical phenomenon and all present predictions are questionable, or the present thermal models are too simplified.

    Fluoride-type crystals (CaF2, SrF2) doped with neodymium Nd3+ and codoped with buffer ions for breaking clusters of active ions and increasing fluorescence efficiency, present interesting alternative as laser active media for the diode-pumped mode-locked lasers. In comparison with widely used materials as Nd:YAG or Nd:YVO4, they have broad emission spectra as well as longer fluorescence lifetime, in comparison with Nd:glass, SrF2 and CaF2 have better thermal conductivity. In spite of the fact, that this thermal conductivity decreases with Nd3+ doping concentration, these crystals are alternative for the Nd:glass in subpicosecond mode-locked laser systems. In this paper we review the basic results reported recently on these active materials and in the second part we present our results achieved in low power diode pumped passively mode locked lasers with Nd,La:CaF2 and Nd,Y:SrF2 crystals. The pulses as short as 258 fs at wavelength of 1057 nm were obtained in the first case, while 5 ps long pulses at 1065 nm were generated from the second laser system.

    The water containing high fluoride ions could do harm to human and environment. In this work, the applicability of neodymium-modified chitosan as adsorbents for the removal of excess fluoride ions from water was studied. The effect of various physico-chemical parameters such as temperature (283-323 K), pH (5-9), adsorbent dose (0.2-2.0 g L(-1)), particle size (0.10-0.50mm) and the presence of co-anions (NO(3)(-), Cl(-) and SO(4)(2-)) on removal of fluoride ions were studied. The equilibrium sorption data were fitted reasonably well for Langmuir isotherm model, the maximum equilibrium sorption had found to be 11.411-22.380 mg g(-1). Sorption dynamics study revealed that the pseudo-second-order was suitable to describe the kinetics process of fluoride ions sorption onto the adsorbent with the initial sorption rate 1.70, 2.10 and 2.67 mg g(-1)min(-1) at 283, 303 and 323 K, and the sorption process was complex, both the boundary of liquid film and intra-particle diffusion contributed to the rate-determining step. The used adsorbents could be regenerated in 24h by 4 g L(-1) of sodium hydroxide.

    The effect of Nd{sup 3+} substitution on the structural properties of Magnesium ferrite was studied in the series MgNd{sub x}Fe{sub 2-x}O{sub 4}, where x = 0 to 0.3 in steps of 0.05. The series was prepared by sol-gel technique which is one of the novel technique to prepare nanosized samples. Structural characterization was done using X-ray diffractometer and Fourier Transform Infrared Spectrometer. XRD analysis reveals the prepared samples are single phasic till x = 0.2. From x0 = .25, a secondary phase of iron neodymium oxide appears along with the spinel phase. Particle size calculation shows the prepared samples are in the 9nm to 11 nm regime. Lattice parameter was found to increase with concentration of Nd. XRD and FTIR analysis confirmed spinel structure of the prepared samples. XRF result shows the expected composition of prepared samples. The frequency dependence of the dielectric constant in the range 100 Hz--120MHz was also studied

    Relaxor ferroelectrics or relaxors are a class of disordered single crystals and ceramic materials, of peculiar structure as well as properties. The commonly known examples of such materials are Pb(Mg,Nb)O3 (PMN) ceramics as well as single crystals. The second most extensively studied relaxor ceramics is lanthanum-doped lead zirconate-titanate, described as x/65/35 PLZT when lanthanum content is x = 6-10 at%. Throughout the last few decades, there has been an increasing interest in rare-earth-doped PLZT ceramics, because PLZT can be easily substituted with lanthanide elements for La3+ ions. For this reason, the present studies concern the changes in microstructure and crystal structure as well as in dielectric properties, caused by modification of 8/65/35 PLZT with neodymium dopant. Modification of this material with Nd3+ influences the microstructure, electrooptical and dielectric properties, whereas the changes in crystal structure are slight. It was also observed that the maximum value of dielectric properties decreases and moves to a low temperature. Described changes in physical properties are associated with the significant improvement of relaxor properties, characteristic for pure 8/65/35 PLZT ceramics.

    Transscleral cyclophotocoagulation was performed with a neodymium: YAG laser on five patients 24-72 hr before enucleation for a blind, painful eye. The thermal mode at 20 ms and a maximum offset between aiming and therapeutic beams were kept constant. Variable parameters evaluated were energy levels between 2 and 8 J and distance from the limbus of 0.5-3.0 mm. Because of the underlying distortion in three of the eyes, meaningful interpretation by light microscopic evaluation was possible only in the other two. This suggested that the early histologic hallmark of the procedure is similar to that previously observed in human autopsy eyes with ciliary epithelial damage and elevation from underlying tissue. In addition, fibrin and scant inflammatory cells were seen in the space between ciliary epithelium and stroma. Minimal damage was observed in the ciliary muscle. These findings suggest that direct damage to the ciliary epithelium is the most likely mechanism of reduced aqueous production by this cyclodestructive procedure. The findings also support the concept that an anterior placement of approximately 1.0-1.5 mm posterior to the limbus is most likely to damage the ciliary epithelium of the pars plicata.

Four eutectic reactions are found in this binary system, i.e. at ∼25 at.% Cd and 770 °C, at 58 at.% Cd and 955 °C, at 79 at.% Cd and 850 °C, and very close to pure Cd at 318 °C, as well as one eutectoid reaction at ∼15 at.% Cd and 500 °C. The solid solubility of Nd in Cd is negligible. Dilatometric curves were recorded for three Nd-Cd compositions up to 4 at.% Cd, to accurately determine phase transitions between the solid solutions of Cd in the low- and high-temperature modification of Nd.

    We present the detection of 10 lines of singly ionized neodymium (Nd ii, Z = 60) in H-band spectra using observations from the SDSS-III Apache Point Observatory Galactic Evolution Experiment (APOGEE) survey. These lines were detected in a metal-poor ([Fe/H] ˜ -1.5), neutron-capture element-enhanced star recently discovered in the APOGEE sample. Using an optical high-resolution spectrum, we derive a Nd abundance for this star using Nd ii lines with precise, laboratory-derived gf values. This optical abundance is used to derive log(gf) values for the H-band lines. We use these lines to rederive Nd ii abundances for two more metal-rich, s-process enhanced stars observed by APOGEE and find that these lines yield consistent Nd ii abundances, confirming the Nd enhancement of these stars. We explore the region of parameter space in the APOGEE sample over which these lines can be used to measure Nd ii abundances. We find that Nd abundances can be reliably derived for ˜18% of the red giants observed by APOGEE. This will result in ˜50,000 Milky Way stars with Nd ii abundances following the conclusion of APOGEE-2, allowing for studies of neutron-capture element abundance distributions across the entire Milky Way.

    A neodymium:yttrium aluminum garnet (Nd:YAG) laser was used to study effects of applying laser irradiation transendoscopically to the corniculate process of the arytenoid cartilage in horses. Dosimetry was established initially in vitro in 10 corniculate cartilages that were irradiated and examined histologically to determine penetration depths at selected power settings. Eleven horses were given xylazine IV and butorphoral tartrate IV, and their left ventricle and corniculate process were irradiated. Six horses had left laryngeal hemiplegia and were euthanatized and necropsied 14 weeks after laser application and evaluation for upper airway stridor. Endoscopy was performed in the 5 other horses; they were euthanatized and necropsied at selected intervals to characterize the healing process. Healing was by second intention and was complete at 14 weeks. Two horses developed buds of granulation tissue along the laser incision, which resolved after a second laser application. Scar tissue formation resulted in left of midline displacement of the dorsal portion of the right corniculate process. The left ventricle healed without complications and was totally ablated. All horses had inspiratory stridor when exercised 14 weeks after laser irradiation.

    A neodymium-glass diode-pumped amplifier with a zigzag laser beam propagation through the active medium was elaborated; the amplifier is intended for operation in a repetitively pulsed laser. An amplifier unit with an aperture of 20 × 25 mm and a ~40-cm long active medium was put to a test. The energy of pump radiation amounts to 140 J at a wavelength of 806 nm for a pump duration of 550 μs. The energy parameters of the amplifier were experimentally determined: the small-signal gain per pass ~3.2, the linear gain ~0.031 cm-1 with a nonuniformity of its distribution over the aperture within 15%, the stored energy of 0.16 — 0.21 J cm-3. The wavefront distortions in the zigzag laser-beam propagation through the active element of the amplifier did not exceed 0.4λ (λ = 0.63 μm is the probing radiation wavelength).

  20. Dielectric and impedance spectroscopic studies of neodymium gallate

    2016-05-01

    The AC electrical properties of a polycrystalline neodymium gallate, NdGaO3 (NGO), synthesized by the sol-gel method have been investigated by employing impedance spectroscopy in the frequency range from 42 Hz to 5 MHz and in the temperature range from 323 K to 593 K. The X-ray diffraction analysis shows that the compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic phase with Pbnm space group at room temperature. Two relaxation processes with different relaxation times are observed from the impedance as well as modulus spectroscopic measurements, which have been attributed to the grain and the grain boundary effects at different temperatures in NGO. The complex impedance data are analyzed by an electrical equivalent circuit consisting of a resistance and a constant phase element in parallel. It has been observed that the value of the capacitance and the resistance associated with the grain boundary is higher than those associated with the grain. The temperature dependent electrical conductivity shows the negative temperature coefficient of resistance. The frequency dependent conductivity spectra are found to follow the power law.

  1. Accidental macular hole following neodymium:YAG posterior capsulotomy.

    Posterior capsular opacification (PCO) is the commonest complication of cataract surgery, occurring in up to one-third of patients in a period of five years. The treatment of choice is the Neodymium:YAG laser posterior capsulotomy. This treatment can be associated with several complications, some of them severe. A rare complication of this procedure is the accidental induced macular hole. A 54-year-old female patient was referred to our Department because of a severe loss of vision and a central scotoma at the right eye. The patient underwent a Nd:YAG posterior capsulotomy 2 days ago, for a PCO. The fundus examination at presentation revealed a round retinal defect in the macular region, a massive inferior preretinal hemorrhage and a mild vitreous hamorrhage. A 6-months follow-up of the case, including retinography and fluorescein angiography, is presented. Although the Nd:YAG laser capsulotomy is a safe, noninvasive, and effective outpatient procedure to improve vision hindered by PCO, it must be recognized that it carries a low but definite risk of serious complications. Physicians and patients should be aware of these rare but severe complications regarding this otherwise safe procedure. Fortunately, most of the complications related to this procedure are transient and can be managed by proper medication.

  2. Dielectric and impedance behavior of neodymium substituted strontium hexaferrite

    Bhat, Bilal Hamid; Samad, Rubiya; Want, Basharat

    2016-09-01

    In this study, dielectric behavior and complex impedance of neodymium (Nd) substituted strontium hexaferrite system: Sr1- x Nd x Fe12O19 ( x = 0.0, 0.05, 0.1, 0.15, 0. 20), synthesized by citrate precursor technique, have been evaluated as a function of applied frequency and temperature. Variation of dielectric constant and dielectric loss with frequency shows the identical behavior for all the compositions. The value of dielectric constant increases with Nd doping. Relaxation process is observed in the composition x = 0.20, and the peaks in this composition shift toward the higher-frequency region as the temperature increases. The dielectric constants show temperature-independent behavior at low temperature, whereas at higher temperatures it increases for all the frequencies. The AC conductivity follows Jonscher's power law, showing that conduction mechanism is due to polaron hopping. Complex impedance as a function of composition and temperature is used to examine the role of grain and grain boundary in the prepared material. Cole-cole plot shows only one semicircle up to x = 0.15, while as for x = 0.20 two semicircles are observed. The conduction mechanism is explained on the basis of both grain and grain boundary.

  3. Laboratory and clinical experience with neodymium:YAG laser prostatectomy

    1996-05-01

    Since 1991, we have undertaken extensive laboratory and clinical studies of the Neodymium:YAG (Nd:YAG) laser for surgical treatment of bladder outlet obstruction due to prostatic enlargement or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Side-firing optical fibers which emit a divergent, relatively low energy density Nd:YAG laser beam produce coagulation necrosis of obstructing periurethral prostate tissue, followed by gradual dissolution and slough in the urinary stream. Laser-tissue interactions and Nd:YAG laser dosimetry for prostatectomy have been studied in canine and human prostate model systems, enhancing clinical application. Ongoing studies examine comparative Nd:YAG laser dosimetry for various beam configurations produced by available side-firing optical fibers and continue to refine operative technique. We have documented clinical outcomes of Nd:YAG laser prostatectomy in 230 consecutive patients treated with the UrolaseTM side-firing optical fiber. Nd:YAG laser coagulation the prostate produces a remarkably low acute morbidity profile, with no significant bleeding or fluid absorption. No postoperative incontinence has been produced. Serial assessments of voiding outcomes over more than 3 years of followup show objective and symptomatic improvement following Nd:YAG laser prostatectomy which is comparable to older but more morbid electrosurgical approaches. Nd:YAG laser prostatectomy is a safe, efficacious, durable and cost-effective treatment for BPH.

    A method is described for producing neodymium in an electrolytic cell without formation of perfluorinated carbon gases (PFCs), the method comprising the steps of providing an electrolyte in the electrolytic cell and providing an anode in an anode region of the electrolyte and providing a cathode in a cathode region of the electrolytic cell. Dissolving an oxygen-containing neodymium compound in the electrolyte in the anode region and maintaining a more intense electrolyte circulation in the anode region than in the cathode region. Passing an electrolytic current between said anode and said cathode and depositing neodymium metal at the cathode, preventing the formation of perfluorinated carbon gases by limiting anode over voltage. 4 figs.

  8. A Comparison between Two Cell Designs for Electrochemical Neodymium Reduction Using Numerical Simulation

    2017-08-01

    Nowadays, neodymium is almost solely produced by the electrochemical reduction of Neodymium oxide in fused fluoride salts. Thereby, the fluid flow distribution within the electrolysis cell is important for the productivity and efficiency of the process. In this work, the flow field within a conventional cell with vertical electrodes is compared to that of an innovative cell concept with horizontal electrodes by computational fluid dynamics. The numerical model uses the Eulerian volume of fluid approach to track phase boundaries between the continuous phases, while the Lagrangian discrete phase model is applied to compute the rising trajectories of emitted off-gas bubbles. The calculated results indicate that the new cell type is more suitable for the efficient, large-scale production of neodymium, since there is potential to decrease the cell voltage and enhance the current efficiency. By that, the specific energy consumption can be lowered significantly. However, an advanced level of automation is necessary to operate the new cell.

    We report rare earth element (REE) and neodymium (Nd) isotope data for the organic fraction of sediments collected from various depositional environments, i.e. rivers (n = 25), estuaries (n = 18), open-ocean settings (n = 15), and cold seeps (n = 12). Sedimentary organic matter (SOM) was extracted using a mixed hydrogen peroxide/nitric acid solution (20%-H2O2-0.02 M-HNO3), after removal of carbonate and oxy-hydroxide phases with dilute hydrochloric acid (0.25 M-HCl). A series of experimental tests indicate that extraction of sedimentary organic compounds using H2O2 may be complicated occasionally by partial dissolution of sulphide minerals and residual carbonates. However, this contamination is expected to be minor for REE because measured concentrations in H2O2 leachates are about two-orders of magnitude higher than in the above mentioned phases. The mean REE concentrations determined in the H2O2 leachates for samples from rivers, estuaries, coastal seas and open-ocean settings yield relatively similar levels, with ΣREE = 109 ± 86 ppm (mean ± s; n = 58). The organic fractions leached from cold seep sediments display even higher concentration levels (285 ± 150 ppm; mean ± s; n = 12). The H2O2 leachates for most sediments exhibit remarkably similar shale-normalized REE patterns, all characterized by a mid-REE enrichment compared to the other REE. This suggests that the distribution of REE in leached sedimentary organic phases is controlled primarily by biogeochemical processes, rather than by the composition of the source from which they derive (e.g. pore, river or sea-water). The Nd isotopic compositions for organic phases leached from river sediments are very similar to those for the corresponding detrital fractions. In contrast, the SOM extracted from marine sediments display εNd values that typically range between the εNd signatures for terrestrial organic matter (inferred from the analysis of the sedimentary detrital fractions) and marine organic matter

    Solid-state lasers play a significant role in providing the technology necessary for active remote sensing of the atmosphere. Neodymium doped yttria (Nd:Y2O3) is considered to be an attractive material due to its possible lasing wavelengths of aprrox.914 nm and approx.946 nm for ozone profiling. These wavelengths when frequency tripled can generate UV light at approx.305 nm and approx.315 nm, which is particularly useful for ozone sensing using differential absorption lidar technique. For practical realization of space based UV transmitter technology, ceramic Nd:Y2O3 material is considered to possess great potential. A plasma melting and quenching method has been developed to produce Nd3+ doped powders for consolidation into Nd:Y2O3 ceramic laser materials. This far-from-equilibrium processing methodology allows higher levels of rare earth doping than can be achieved by equilibrium methods. The method comprises of two main steps: (a) plasma melting and quenching to generate dense, and homogeneous doped metastable powders, (b) pressure assisted consolidation of these powders by hot isostatic pressing to make dense nanocomposite ceramics. Using this process, several 1" x 1" ceramic cylinders have been produced. The infrared transmission of undoped Y2O3 ceramics was as high as approx.75% without anti-reflection coating. In the case of Nd:Y2O3 ceramics infrared transmission values of approx.50% were achieved. Furthermore, Nd:Y2O3 samples with dopant concentrations of up to approx.2 at. % were prepared without significant emission quenching.

    A facile soft chemical approach using cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) as template is successfully designed for synthesis of neodymium hydroxide nanotubes. These nanotubes have an average outer diameter around 20 nm, inner diameter around 2 nm, and length ranging from 100 to 120 nm, high BET surface area of 495.71 m(2) g(-1). We also find that neodymium hydroxide nanorods would be obtained when CTAB absented in reaction system. The Nd(OH)3 nanorods might act as precursors that are converted into Nd2O3 nanorods through dehydration at 550 degrees C. The nanorods could exhibit upconversion emission characteristic under excitation of 591 nm at room temperature.

    Uniform yttrium, lanthanum, cerium, and neodymium basic carbonate particles were prepared by homogeneous precipitation. Powders were characterized with respect to size, shape, crystal structure, and thermal decomposition behavior. Yttria precursor particles were spherical, monosized (0.4 {mu}m), and amorphous; whereas lanthana, neodymia, and ceria precursors were prismatic (ranging from 1 to 6 {mu}m in size) and crystalline. Crystal structure was found to be ancylite-type orthorhombic symmetry in all three cases. Upon heating in air, yttrium, lanthanum, and neodymium precursors underwent two-step decomposition to first form oxycarbonate and then oxide. Cerium hydroxycarbonate decomposed in a single step to form the oxide.

    The low-lying states of 143Nd and 154Nd have been studied by means of Coulomb excitation with 16O and α-particles. Angular distribution measurements were carried out for some transitions in 145Nd with 11.2 MeV α-particles. Level energy decay schemes and B(E2)↑ values were measured for two states in 143Nd and for six states in 145Nd. Some spin assignments have been established for the 145Nd nucleus. 143Nd and 145Nd have been theoretically described by coupling one and three particles, respectively, to quadrupole vibrations, and rather good agreement with experiment was achieved.

  7. Groundtruthing the Neodymium Isotope Proxy in Deep-Sea Corals

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    2007-12-01

    The Nd isotopic composition of marine precipitates is increasingly recognized as a powerful tool in paleoceanography. Unlike nutrient proxies such as δ13C or Cd/Ca, Nd isotopes are not thought to be altered by biological processes, and thus may serve as a quasi-conservative water mass mixing tracer. However, any archive, which is used to extract authigenic Nd isotopes, needs careful examination, to test the integrity of the inferred seawater signal. Here we present first data on cleaning experiments and modern calibration experiments on different species of deep-sea corals. Seven different coral samples ranging in age from modern to ~220ka were selected for experiments designed to remove ferromanganese crusts and / or organic residues that may contain high concentrations of Nd and Th. The aim was to determine whether the rigorous chemical procedure we use to remove Th associated with these crusts is effective at removing Nd, and whether it causes any fractionation in the Nd isotopic composition of the coral aragonite. Crusts were found to contain Th-232 concentrations of up to ~160ppm, with 232Th/230Th ratios dependent on the oceanic location of the coral. Un-cleaned corals had Th-232 concentrations of up to 8ppb and the cleaning procedure reduced these values to less than 0.2ppb in both modern and fossil specimens. Neodymium isotopic compositions reveal that for modern corals, with no visible coating, a pre-cleaning step is sufficient to yield the isotopic composition of ambient seawater. The ferromanganese coating around fossil corals however may have a very different isotopic composition than the coral aragonite since it may be a time-integrated signal biased towards modern values. This bias is observed for intermediate water depth D. dianthus corals from stage 3 in the northwest Atlantic. Modern D. dianthus skeletons from the northwest Atlantic and the Drake Passage reflect the seawater Nd isotopic composition, and we are extending this modern calibration to

  8. Dissolved Neodymium Isotopes and Concentrations in the South Pacific

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Basak, C.; Pahnke, K.

    2013-12-01

    The isotopic composition of dissolved Neodymium (expressed as ɛNd) in seawater is becoming increasingly established as a tracer for present and past water mass structure and flow paths. The South Pacific represents the largest sector of the Southern Ocean and harbors major areas of bottom and intermediate water mass formation and is therefore a key area for understanding present and past deep ocean circulation. While more dissolved Nd data are becoming available from different ocean basins, the South Pacific is still understudied with respect to the distribution of Nd isotopes and concentrations. In this study we have analyzed dissolved Nd isotopes and concentrations from 11 water column profiles across the South Pacific between 46°S and 69°S that sample all water masses. Our data show that the bottom water in the vicinity of the Ross Sea (Ross Sea Bottom water, RSBW) is represented by an ɛNd value of ~ -7, while the overlying Circumpolar Deep Water (CDW) carries a signature of ɛNd = -8 to -9. The characteristic Nd isotopic signal of RSBW can be tracked along its flow path into the southeast Pacific where it progressively looses its signal through interaction with ambient CDW. The easternmost stations, closer to South America, exhibit an excursion towards radiogenic ɛNd at ≤2000 m water depth. This change towards more positive ɛNd coincides with low oxygen and high phosphate concentrations representing Pacific Deep Water (PDW) and possibly indicates water mass mixing of CDW with more radiogenic PDW. While the Nd isotopic composition shows apparent variations between stations and different water masses, the concentration profiles show a rather uniform and gradual increase with depth, a pattern typical for open ocean settings. Spatial and vertical contrasts in Nd isotopic values throughout the South Pacific indicate that Nd isotopes can be used as a water mass tracer in this region. It is reasonable to infer that local lithology in the Ross Sea influenced

    2017-03-01

    As a way to manage neodymium-iron-boron (NdFeB) magnets wasted in end-of-life hard disk drives (HDDs), a waste characterization is needed prior to a recycling process. Due to their magnetic properties, NdFeB magnets are essential in technological applications nowadays, thus causing an increase in the industrial demand for rare earth metals. However, these metals have a short supply, since they are difficult to obtain from ores, creating a critical market. In this work, a study of the characterization of sintered neodymium-iron-boron magnets was undertaken by qualitatively and quantitatively uncovering the neodymium recovery potential from this type of electronic waste. From the collection and disassembly of hard disk drives, in which the magnet represents less than 3% of the total weight, an efficient demagnetization process was proceeded at 320°C. Then, the magnet was ground and screened for an X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, which showed the Nd2Fe14B tetragonal phase as the dominant constituent of the sample. An analysis was also carried out in a scanning electron microscope (SEM) and an inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectrometer (ICP-OES), where the magnet composition showed 21.5wt% of neodymium and 65.1wt% of iron, among other chemicals. This Nd content is higher than the one found in Nd ores, enhancing the recyclability and the importance of waste management.

    Neodymium being considered as nitride forming element has been used in a design of advanced ferritic/martensitic (FM) steels for fossil fired power plants at service temperatures of 630 °C to 650 °C to effectively improve the creep strength of the steels. To fully understand the characteristics of neodymium precipitates in high-Cr FM steels, precipitate phases in an 11Cr FM steel with 0.03 wt% addition of Nd have been investigated by transmission electron microscopy. Three neodymium phases with a face-centered cubic crystal structure and different composition were observed in the steel. They consisted of neodymium carbonitride with an average lattice parameter of 1.0836 nm, Nd-rich carbonitride mainly containing Mn, and Nd-rich MN nitride mainly containing Mn and Co. Other three Nd-rich and Nd-containing phases, which appear to be Nd-Co-Cr/Nd-rich intermetallic compounds and Cr-Fe-rich nitride containing Nd, were also detected in the steel. Nd-relevant precipitates were found to be minor phases compared with M23C6 and Nb/V/Ta-rich MX phases in the steel. The content of Nd in other precipitate phases was very low. Most of added Nd is considered to be present as solid solution in the matrix of the steel.

    Complex formation reactions of praseodymium nitrate hexahydrate, and neodymium nitrate hexahydrate salts with tri-n-butyl phosphate (TBP) and several other neutral organophosphorus reagents were investigated in supercritical carbon dioxide. The concentration of the metal complexes in the supercritical fluid (SCF) phase was determined using UV-Vis and luminescence spectroscopies. The stoichiometry of the complexes was determined using the mole-ratio method. Extraction equilibrium constants were calculated from the spectral data using least-squares regression and hard-equilibria models. UV-Vis absorbance data indicate that praseodymium nitrate and neodymium nitrate both form 1:4 lanthanide–tributyl phosphate complexes in supercritical carbon dioxide at 308 K. The conditional extraction coefficients for those two systems were calculated to be log Kex=7.45±0.06 for the praseodymium system and log Kex=7.52±0.03 for the neodymium system. For comparison, neodymium nitrate complexation reactions with tri-n-butyl phosphate and tributyl phosphite (TBPO3) were studied in hexane under ambient conditions. UV-Vis data indicate that a 1:4 neodymium–tributyl phosphate complex is formed in hexane with a conditional extraction coefficient of log Kex=3.4±0.2. Tributyl phosphite forms a 1:8 complex with neodymium in hexane with a conditional extraction coefficient of log Kex=11.0±0.1. Neodymium nitrate was titrated with other organophosphorus reagents, tributyl phosphite and tributyl phosphine oxide (TBPO), in supercritical carbon dioxide to investigate differences between neutral oxygen donor ligands and neutral phosphorus donor ligands. UV-Vis and luminescence data indicate that neodymium nitrate forms a 1:8 complex with tributyl phosphite and a 1:5 complex with tributyl phosphine oxide, compared to a 1:4 complex with tri-n-butyl phosphate. The conditional extraction coefficient for the 1:8 neodymium–tributyl phosphite system was calculated as log Kex=21.4±0.2 from UV

  19. Mechanisms of magma generation beneath hawaii and mid-ocean ridges: uranium/thorium and samarium/neodymium isotopic evidence.

    Measurements of uranium/thorium and samarium/neodymium isotopes and concentrations in a suite of Hawaiian basalts show that uranium/thorium fractionation varies systematically with samarium/neodymium fractionation and major-element composition; these correlations can be understood in terms of simple batch melting models with a garnet-bearing peridotite magma source and melt fractions of 0.25 to 6.5 percent. Midocean ridge basalts shows a systematic but much different relation between uranium/thorium fractionation and samarium/neodymium fractionation, which, although broadly consistent with melting of a garnet-bearing peridotite source, requires a more complex melting model.

    Dissolved neodymium (Nd) isotopic composition (expressed as εNd) has been analysed for 82 seawater samples collected from 13 stations stretching from the Alboran Sea to the Iceland Basin. The distribution of the εNd values of water masses was thus investigated for the first time along the western European margin in order to explore whether the water masses flowing in the eastern subpolar and subtropical Atlantic reveal distinct isotopic patterns. The Modified Atlantic Water (MAW) in the Alboran Sea displays εNd values (between -9.2 ± 0.2 and -8.9 ± 0.2) that are significantly more radiogenic than those reported in previous studies (-10.8 ± 0.2 to -9.7 ± 0.2), suggesting temporal variations in the Nd isotopic composition of the water that enters the Mediterranean Sea from the Strait of Gibraltar. The εNd value of the underlying modified Winter Intermediate Water (WIW) has been established for the first time (-9.8 ± 0.3) and is compatible with a Nd signature acquired from the sinking of MAW in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea. Within the Gulf of Cádiz, southern Mediterranean Sea Water (MSW) (-10.6 ± 0.2) differs slightly from the northern MSW (-9.9 ± 0.4) owing to a significant contribution of modified East Antarctic Intermediate Water (EAAIW) (-10.9 ± 0.2). In the northeast Atlantic, the North Atlantic Current surface water located in the inter-gyre region (north of 46°N) displays εNd values of between -14.0 ± 0.3 and -15.1 ± 0.3, reflecting the subpolar gyre signature. Along the western European margin, εNd values of surface water decrease toward the north (from -10.4 ± 1.6 to -13.7 ± 1.0) in agreement with the gradual mixing between subtropical and subpolar water. At intermediate depth, εNd values decrease from -9.9 ± 0.4 within the Gulf of Cádiz to -12.1 ± 0.2 within the Porcupine Seabight, indicating a strong dilution of the MSW with subpolar water. Within the Rockall Trough and the Iceland Basin, the more negative εNd values at mid

  1. A new luminous blue variable - R143 in 30 Doradus

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    1993-01-01

    We have discovered that R143 in the Large Magellanic Cloud is a luminous blue variable (LBV), the first and perhaps the lone LBV in the central cluster of 30 Doradus, and only the sixth known LMC LBV. Photometric and spectroscopic observations over the past 40 yr indicate that during that time R143 moved redward (changing from an F5 to F8 supergiant), then blueward (possibly becoming as early as O9.5), and is now moving back to the red (currently appearing as a late B supergiant). Similarly, the V magnitude of the star has changed by at least 1.4 mag. Images of R143 show very unusual filaments of nebulosity extending from the star to a shell at a distance of 3.5 pc, perhaps due to a similar ejection mechanism that created the spiral jets and shell associated with AG Car, another LBV.

    This paper presents the results of the application of freeze granulation to the production of transparent neodymium-doped yttrium-aluminum garnet ceramics. Aqueous suspensions of aluminium oxide, yttrium oxide and neodymium oxide powders were prepared based on nanometric or submicronic powders which were either commercially available or prepared by precipitation. The relations between the composition of suspension, the properties of granulate and the final properties of ceramics (microstructure, optical transmission and emission spectra) were studied.

    1994-04-01

    A process waste assessment (PWA) is a systematic, planned procedure with the overall objective of identifying opportunities and methods to reduce and eliminate waste. This specific PWA examines waste minimization and emission information for the trichloroethylene vapor degreaser in area 143, Chem Clean. Area 143 Chem Clean is involved in the solvent cleaning and acid cleaning (etching) of various metal and ceramic parts in preparation for further processing (e.g., electroplating, brazing, final assembly). A standard set of worksheets for a level three PWA is included.

  4. Comparison of sutureless argon- and neodymium:YAG-welded ileo-ileal anastomosis using a biodegradable intraluminal stent

    Costello, Anthony J.; Johnson, Douglas E.; Wishnow, Kenneth I.

    1990-06-01

    Sutureless end-to-end ileo-ileal intestinal anastomoses were successfully constructed with both the 1.06 jim neodymium:YAG and the 488/515-nm argon lasers. A 5-watt power setting was used with the neodymium:YAG, and various biologic solutions were added to the anastomotic seam during lasing. Power settings of 1.5, 3, 4, and 5 watts were used for argon lasing, with and without an exogenous chromophore. At the 4-watt argon setting, a continuous infusion of normal saline was dripped onto the anastomosis during lasing, replacing the chromophore. All bowel anastomoses were constructed with the aid of a biodegradable intraluminal stent that held the bowel ends in place during construction of the watertight ileal fusion and then completely degraded within 8 hours. We concluded that the neodymium:YAG seemed superior for tissue fusion using the techniques outlined, as it was associated with fewer anastomotic leaks. It appeared easier to determine the end-point of tissue fusion with the neodymium:YAG than the argon, because the tissue changes were more obvious during neodymium:YAG lasing. The deeper penetration into the bowel wall of neodymium:YAG laser energy may confer a welding advantage over the more shallow penetration of the argon wavelength.

  5. NEW ACTIVE MEDIA AND ELEMENTS OF LASER SYSTEMS: Influence of short-lived color centers on the lifetime of a metastable level of neodymium in silicate glasses

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Dzhibladze, M. I.; Lazarev, L. E.

    1987-11-01

    It was found that the short-lived color centers formed in neodymium-activated silicate glasses under the action of the violet part of the pump spectrum increased the lifetime of a neodymium metastable level by more than an order of magnitude in needle-shaped waveguide lasers. The highly efficient suppression of superradiance and a strong increase in the gain of the active element were due to stimulated decay of the color centers accompanying absorption of photons emitted by the neodymium.

    Photocatalytic degradation of municipal wastewater was investigated using reagent grade TiO(2) and modified neodymium doped TiO(2) hybrid nanoparticles. For the first time, surface modification of Nd(3 +) doped TiO(2) hybrid nanoparticles were carried out with n-butylamine as surface modifier under mild hydrothermal conditions. The modified nanoparticles obtained were characterized by Powder XRD, FTIR, DLS, TEM, BET surface area, zeta potential and UV-Vis Spectroscopy. The characterization results indicated better morphology, particle size distribution and low agglomeration of the nanoparticles synthesized. It was found that photodegradation of wastewater using surface modified neodymium doped TiO(2) nanoparticles was more compared to pure TiO(2), which can be attributed to the doping and modification with n-butylamine.

    A procedure is described for the determination of trace amounts of Cd(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Pb(II), Fe(III), Co(II), and Mn(II) that combines flame atomic absorption spectrometry with neodymium hydroxide coprecipitation. The influences of analytical parameters (amount of neodymium, pH of the model solutions, etc.) that affect quantitative recoveries of the analyte ions were investigated. The effects of concomitant ions were also examined. The detection limits for analytes were found in the range of 0.2-3.3 microg/L. The validation of the presented procedure was controlled by analysis of certified reference materials (National Institute of Standards and Technology 1570a spinach leaves and TMDA 54.4 fortified lake water). The applications of the procedure were performed by the analysis of water, food, and herbal plants from Turkey.

    In this work, two synthetic polyelectrolytes, PSS and PAH, are employed as strong adsorbed surfactants to disperse and stabilize neodymium oxide nanoparticles. The acid-base equilibria of the oxide surfaces of the particles were investigated under different pH conditions in the absence and presence of polyelectrolytes, to optimize particle stabilization through enhancement of the effective repulsive surface charges. Surface charge amplification of a 3:5 ratio was achieved to permit improved particle transparency of 100-fold in visible wavelengths in neutral and acidic pH regimes, and a stable 10-fold surface charge amplification was achieved under basic pH conditions. The potential of polyelectrolytes as stabilizing agents for neodymium oxide NPs in large-scale particle physics experiments requiring extremely high optical transparency over long path length is evaluated based on optical absorbance and particle stability.

A comparison of the spectral shapes of both emission and absorption spectra is presented, from which the relevant role played by the host matrix is evidenced. The lack of a “universal” optimum system for infrared bioimaging is discussed, as the specific bioimaging application and the experimental setup for infrared imaging determine the neodymium-doped nanoparticle to be preferentially used in each case.

    NdxCe1-xO2-0.5x (x=0-1.0) powders were prepared by reverse coprecipitation-calcination method and characterized by XRD. The crystal structure of product powders transformed from single fluorite structure to the complex of fluorite and C-type cubic structure, and finally to trigonal structure with the increase of x-value. An empirical equation simulating the lattice parameter of neodymium doped ceria was established based on the experimental data. The lattice parameters of the fluorite structure solid solutions increased with extensive adoption of Nd3+, and the heating temperature going up. The average thermal expansion coefficients of neodymium doped ceria with fluorite structure are higher than 13.5×10-6 °C-1 from room temperature to 1200 °C.

    PubMed

    2006-11-03

    Bulk carbonaceous chondrites display a deficit of approximately 100 parts per million (ppm) in 144Sm with respect to other meteorites and terrestrial standards, leading to a decrease in their 142Nd/144Nd ratios by approximately 11 ppm. The data require that samarium and neodymium isotopes produced by the p process associated with photodisintegration reactions in supernovae were heterogeneously distributed in the solar nebula. Other samarium and neodymium isotopes produced by rapid neutron capture (r process) in supernovae and by slow neutron capture (s process) in red giants were homogeneously distributed. The supernovae sources supplying the p- and r-process nuclides to the solar nebula were thus disconnected or only weakly connected.

    We study paramagnetic resonance linewidth in a series of CaWO4 and CaMoO4 crystals with different concentrations of neodymium ions (0.0031-0.81 at %). Experimental data are interpreted in the framework of the statistical theory of line broadening by charged point defects. In our calculations, three different contributions are singled out: arising from the local electric fields, electric field gradients and magnetic fields of the nearby point defects. The interaction parameters are determined from the spectroscopic data available for Nd:CaWO4 crystal. Direct calculations of the linewidth are performed for different crystal orientations with respect to external magnetic field. We conclude that major contribution to the broadening comes from the interactions with random electric fields produced by neodymium and charge compensator ions.

    Neodymium pentaphosphate monocrystals of good quality were grown from phosporic acid solutions containing alkaline metals, Sb and Pb admixtures. The changes in the crystal habit are connected with the properties of the interacting admixtures, and the (P 10O 28) ∞ ribbons which distinguish the structure of pentaphosphates. The presence of B, Al, Si, Ge, Cr and Mn does not influence the quality of the crystals. The NdP 5O 14 grown from the K-containing solution was tested, for CW generation with α = 1.05 μm and a second harmonic pumping of the neodymium laser (λ = 0.53 μm, frequency = 12.5 Hz) using a resonator consisting of spherical ( R = 5 cm) and plane mirrors ( R = 99.8%) with a threshold pumping of 56 μJ.

    1988-02-01

    The recent considerable progress in the development of solid-state lasers, primarily neodymium-based lasers for use as sources of short, synchronized, high-power optical pulses, is reviewed. The amplification of femtosecond optical pulses using synchronous amplification techniques with these lasers has proved particularly applicable to experimentation. The authors also presents a laser design which combines several advantageous qualities into a single laser cavity.

    We developed a novel fluorescent probe that contains the neodymium(III) complex moiety and fluorescein moiety. This probe can emit long-lived near-infrared luminescence derived from a Nd ion through excitation of the fluorescein moiety with visible light (lambda(ex) = 488 nm, lambda(em) = 880 nm, lifetime = 2.3 micros). These results indicate the possibility of the probe as a candidate for in vivo fluorescence molecular imaging.

  12. Powerful neodymium laser radiation for the treatment of facial carcinoma: 5 year follow-up data.

    PubMed

    Moskalik, Konstantin; Kozlow, Alexander; Demin, Eugeny; Boiko, Ernest

    2010-01-01

    A retrospective non-comparative follow-up study was performed to evaluate the curative efficacy of powerful neodymium laser radiation (λ = 1,060 nm) for the treatment of 2,837 patients with 3,001 histologically confirmed facial skin carcinoma lesions of stages T1-2N0M0: 2,743 primary basal cell carcinomas (BCC), 172 recurrent limited basal cell carcinomas (RLBCC), and 86 primary squamous cells carcinomas (SCC). All patients were followed-up from 5 to 11 years (mean: 8.2 years; median: 7.0 years) after treatment. The overall recurrence rate (RR) after treatment with laser radiation of facial carcinomas was 2.5% of all irradiated tumours (mean: 13.4 months; median: 11.0 months). Patients with BCC treated by radiation with the pulsed Neodymium (Nd) laser developed RR in 2.2% of cases and patients treated with the Nd:YAG laser had RR of 3.1%. Recurrences following treatment for RLBCC, and those of SCC, after irradiation with the Nd laser appeared in 4.1% and 4.6% of patients, respectively. Neodymium laser radiation is a safe and effective means of treating facial carcinomas of stages T1-2N0M0 with good cosmetic results.

    A complex of neodymium(III) with 4-hydroxy-3[1-(4-nitrophenyl)-3-oxobutyl]-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one (acenocoumarol) was synthesized by mixing water solutions of neodymium(III) nitrate and the ligand (metal to ligand molar ratio of 1:3). The complex was characterized and identified by elemental analysis, conductivity, IR, 1H NMR and mass spectral data. DTA and TGA were applied to study the composition of the compound. Elemental and mass spectral analysis of the complex indicated the formation of a compound of the composition NdR3 x 6H2O, where R = C19H14NO6-) The reaction of neodymium(III) with acenocoumarol was studied in detail by the spectrophotometric method. The stepwise formation of three complexes, vis., NdR2+, NdR2+ and NdR3 was established in the pH region studied (pH 3.0-7.5). The equilibrium constants for 1:1, 1:2 and 1:3 complexes were determined to be log K1 = 6.20 +/- 0.06; log K2 = 3.46 +/- 0.07 and log K2) = 2.58 +/- 0.05, respectively.

  14. Subtissue thermal sensing based on neodymium-doped LaF₃ nanoparticles.

    In this work, we report the multifunctional character of neodymium-doped LaF₃ core/shell nanoparticles. Because of the spectral overlap of the neodymium emission bands with the transparency windows of human tissues, these nanoparticles emerge as relevant subtissue optical probes. For neodymium contents optimizing the luminescence brightness of Nd³⁺:LaF₃ nanoparticles, subtissue penetration depths of several millimeters have been demonstrated. At the same time, it has been found that the infrared emission bands of Nd³⁺:LaF₃ nanoparticles show a remarkable thermal sensitivity, so that they can be advantageously used as luminescent nanothermometers for subtissue thermal sensing. This possibility has been demonstrated in this work: Nd³⁺:LaF₃ nanoparticles have been used to provide optical control over subtissue temperature in a single-beam plasmonic-mediated heating experiment. In this experiment, gold nanorods are used as nanoheaters while thermal reading is performed by the Nd³⁺:LaF₃ nanoparticles. The possibility of a real single-beam-controlled subtissue hyperthermia process is, therefore, pointed out.

  15. Separation of samarium and neodymium: a prerequisite for getting signals from nuclear synthesis.

    (146)Sm (T(1/2) = 10(8) y) is a long-lived radionuclide which has been produced in significant amounts during burning in a supernova (SN). Detection of this SN produced long-lived radionuclide on Earth may be helpful for getting information on nuclear synthesis at the time of our solar system's formation. Only accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) can determine such minute traces of (146)Sm still expected in the Earth's crust. However, the villain of (146)Sm measurement through AMS is its naturally occurring stable isobar (146)Nd which is a million times more abundant than the trace amount of (146)Sm. Therefore an efficient method for the separation of samarium and neodymium is required to measure (146)Sm through AMS. A simple liquid-liquid extraction (LLX) based method for separation of samarium and neodymium has been developed using radiometric simulation. Di-(2-ethylhexyl)phosphoric acid (HDEHP) has been used as the organic reagent. A very high separation factor ( approximately 10(6)) can be achieved when a solution containing samarium and neodymium is reduced by hydroxylamine hydrochloride followed by extraction with 0.1% HDEHP diluted in cyclohexane from 0.025 M HCl solution.

  16. X-ray radiometric determination of lanthanides (praseodymium, neodymium, and samarium) in soils

    2011-04-01

    A procedure of the modified energy-dispersive X-ray fluorescence method (X-ray radiometric analysis using a 241Am radionuclide source) was developed for the identification of praseodymium, neodymium, and samarium. The procedure is based on the exclusion of the disturbing effect of barium and lanthanum on the lines of praseodymium and neodymium, as well as the effect of lanthanum and cerium on the lines of samarium. On the basis of the new method, data were obtained on the geochemistry of three lanthanides in soils of the northern taiga. Praseodymium and neodymium were detected by the X-ray radiometric method even in podzols depleted of heavy metals. The method can detect samarium at the levels of the soil clarke and higher. Positive samarium (or, wider, rare-earth) anomalies can be expected in the soils located not far from the deposits of apatite-nephelines, loparites, and phosphorites and in the soils developed on alkaline granites and carbonate weathering crusts.

  17. Safety and efficacy of Neodymium-Yag laser photocoagulation: an experimental study in dogs.

    Acute and chronic experiments were carried out in 26 beagle dogs to study the safety and efficacy of Neodymium-Yag laser photocoagulation in the treatment of bleeding gastric lesions. Continuous high power (50-60 W) Neodymium-Yag laser photocoagulation applied to the exposed stomach of the dog produced evaporation lesions that reached the muscle layer after six to 10 seconds and caused free perforation after 10 to 12 seconds. The tissue damage caused by these long lasting exposures was closely related to the working distance. Moreover, long pulses of high power photocoagulation were not always effective in stopping experimentally induced gastric bleedings. Short pulses (1/2-1 s) of very high power (60-70 W) caused less tissue evaporation, which reached the muscle layers only after 14 to 18 pulses and caused free perforation after 22 to 24 pulses. The tissue damage was not related to the working distance when short pulses were used. Repeated shots of high power Yag laser radiation always resulted in stopping the experimental bleedings without deep injury. It is concluded that high power Neodymium-Yag laser photocoagulation is safe and may be used with success in the treatment of bleeding gastric lesions if the radiation is performed in shots of short duration (1 s or less). Clinical studies in man are warranted and indicated. Images Fig. 3 Fig. 7 Fig. 8 PMID:7193164

    A family of neodymium complexes featuring a redox-active ligand in three different oxidation states has been synthesized, including the iminoquinone (L(0) ) derivative, ((dipp) iq)2 NdI3 (1-iq), the iminosemiquinone (L(1-) ) compound, ((dipp) isq)2 NdI(THF) (1-isq), and the amidophenolate (L(2-) ) [K(THF)2 ][((dipp) ap)2 Nd(THF)2 ] (1-ap) and [K(18-crown-6)][((dipp) ap)2 Nd(THF)2 ] (1-ap crown) species. Full spectroscopic and structural characterization of each derivative established the +3 neodymium oxidation state with redox chemistry occurring at the ligand rather than the neodymium center. Oxidation with elemental chalcogens showed the reversible nature of the ligand-mediated reduction process, forming the iminosemiquinone metallocycles, [K(18-crown-6)][((dipp) isq)2 Nd(S5 )] (2-isq crown) and [K(18-crown-6)(THF)][((dipp) isq)2 Nd(Se5 )] (3-isq crown), which are characterized to contain a 6-membered twist-boat ring. © 2017 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.

    Complexes of neodymium (III) with bis-coumarins: 3,3'-benzylidene-bis(4-hydroxy-2H-1-benzopyran-2-one); bis(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)-piridin-2-yl-methane; bis(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)-piridin-4-yl-methane; bis(4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-chromen-3-yl)-(1H-pyrazol-3-yl)-methane were synthesized by reaction of neodymium (III) salt and the ligands, in amounts equal to metal:ligand molar ratio of 1:2. The complexes were prepared by adding an aqueous solution of neodymium (III) salt to an aqueous solution of the ligand subsequently raising the pH of the mixture gradually to ca. 5.0 by adding dilute solution of sodium hydroxide. The neodymium (III) complexes with bis-coumarins were characterized by different physicochemical methods-elemental analysis, IR-, (1)H- and (13)C-NMR-spectroscopies and mass-spectral data. The spectral data of neodymium (III) complexes were interpreted on the basis of comparison with the spectra of the free ligands. This analysis showed that in the Nd (III) complexes the ligands coordinated to the metal ion through both deprotonated hydroxyl groups. On the basis of the nu(C=O) red shift observed, participation of the carbonyl groups in the coordination to the metal ion was also suggested. Cytotoxic screening by MTT assay was carried out. The complexes were tested on HL-60, HL-60/Dox and SKW-3 cell lines. The overall results from the preliminary screening program revealed that all of the new Nd (III) complexes reach 50% inhibition of the malignant cells proliferation and thus could be considered as biologically active. On the basis of the IC(50) values obtained compounds Nd(L(1))(OH).H(2)O and Nd(L(3))(OH).2H(2)O were found to exert superior activity in comparison to the remaining complexes.
