    Hydrogen sulfide gravimetric isotherm adsorption measurements were carried out on MIL-53(Al, Cr, Fe), MIL-47(V), MIL-100(Cr), and MIL-101(Cr) metal-organic frameworks (MOFs). A two-step adsorption mechanism related to a breathing effect was observed for MIL-53 terephthalate-based MOFs. Methane adsorption measurements highlighted the regenerability of MIL-53(Al, Cr) and MIL-47(V) MOFs after H(2)S treatment, whereas MIL-100 and MIL-101 CH(4) adsorption capacities were significantly decreased.

    A selection of metallocene inclusion compounds with channel structured MOFs (MOF = Metal-Organic Framework) were obtained via solvent-fee adsorption of the metallocenes from the gas-phase. The adsorbate structures ferrocene(0.5)@MIL-53(Al) (MIL-53(Al) = [Al(OH)(bdc)](n) with bdc = 1,4-terephthalate), ferrocene(0.25)@MIL-47(V) (MIL-47(V) = [V(O)(bdc)](n)), cobaltocene(0.25)@MIL-53(Al), cobaltocene(0.5)@MIL-47(V), 1-formylferrocene(0.33)@MIL-53(Al), 1,1'dimethylferrocene(0.33)@MIL-53(Al), 1,1'-diformylferrocene(0.5)@MIL-53(Al) were determined from powder X-ray diffraction data and were analyzed concerning the packing and orientation of the guest species. The packing of the ferrocene guest molecules inside MIL-47(V) is significantly different compared to MIL-53(Al) due to the lower breathing effect and weaker hydrogen bonds between the guest molecules and the host network in the case of MIL-47(V). The orientation of the metallocene molecule is also influenced by the substituents (CH(3) and CHO) at the cyclopentadienyl ring and the interaction with the bridging OH group of MIL-53(Al). The inclusion of redox active cobaltocene into MIL-47(V) leads to the formation of a charge transfer compound with a negatively charged framework. The reduction of the vanadium centers is stoichiometric. The resulting material is a mixed valence compound with a V(3+)/V(4+) ratio of 1:1. The new compounds were characterized via thermal gravimetric analysis, infrared spectroscopy, solid state NMR, and differential pulse voltammetry. Both systems are 1D-channel pore structures. The metallocene adsorbate induced breathing effect of MIL-53(Al) is more pronounced compared to MIL-47(V), this can be explained by the different bridging groups between the MO(6) clusters.

    2013-05-01

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

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

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

  10. MEMS and mil/aero: technology push and market pull

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Clifford, Thomas H.

    2001-04-01

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

    Earhart, Leroy

    Validation testing intended to verify the compliance of a terminal's interface with MIL-STD-1553 is reviewed focusing on misconceptions people might have about it, examples of remote terminal failures, and options available for validation testing. It is concluded that neglecting validation testing for an interface as complex as MIL-STD-1553 can be a costly mistake as the performance of a 1553 interface cannot be properly determined without it.

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Nyquist, L. E.; Shirai, N.; Yamaguchi, A.; Shih, C.-Y.; Park, J.; Ebihara, M.

    2016-01-01

    Our studies of the Miller Range lunar meteorites MIL 090034, 090036, and 090070 show them to be a diverse suite of rocks from the lunar highlands hereafter referred to as MIL 34, MIL 36, and MIL 70, resp. MIL34 and MIL70, the focus of this work, are crystalline melt breccias. Plagioclase compositions in both peak sharply around An96-97. Mg numbers of olivine vary from 58-65 with a few higher values. MIL36 is a regolith breccia. MIL 34 and MIL 70 have some of the highest Al2O3 abundances of lunar highland meteorites, indicating that they have among the largest modal abundances of plagioclase for lunar meteorites. They have lower Sc and Cr abundances than nearly all lunar highland meteorites except Dho 081, Dho 489 and Dho 733. MIL34 and MIL70 also have similar cosmic ray exposure (CRE) ages of approximately 1-2 Ma indicating they are launch paired. (MIL36 has a larger CRE age approximately greater than 70 Ma). Park et al. found a variation in Ar-Ar ages among subsamples of MIL 34 and MIL70, but preferred ages of 3500+/-110 Ma for the "Dark" phase of MIL 34 anorthite and 3520+/-30 Ma for the "Light" phase of MIL70. Bouvier et al. reported a Pb-Pb age of 3894+/-39 Ma for a feldspathic clast of MIL 34 and a similar age for a melt lithology. Here we reexamine the Rb-Sr and Sm-Nd isotopic data, which show complexities qualitatively consistent with those of the Ar-Ar and Pb-Pb data. The Sm-Nd data in particular suggest that the feldspathic compositions of MIL 34 and MIL 70 formed during initial lunar geochemical differentiation, and REE modeling suggests a relatively late-stage formation.

    In January 2004, the ANSMET reconnaissance field team (Fig. 1) working in the Miller Range of the Transantarctic Mountains discovered a 715 g achondrite that was instantly recognized as unique. Named MIL03346, initial processing (NASA Johnson Space Center or JSC) and classification (Smithsonian Institution or SI) revealed this achondrite to be a nakhlite (Fig. 2). MIL03346 is the seventh nakhlite recognized in world collections [2], the third nakhlite returned from Antartica, and the first nakhlite in the US Antarctic collection (Table 1). The following is a summary of the steps taken in the processing and allocating of MIL 03346 and some comparisons to some other lunar and martian meteorites processed and allocated at JSC.

    The SMART Multiplexer Interface Adapter, (SMIA) a complete system interface for message structure of the MIL-STD-1553, is described. It provides buffering and storage for transmitted and received data and handles all the necessary handshaking to interface between parallel 8-bit data bus and a MIL-STD serial bit stream. The bus adapter is configured as either a bus controller of a remote terminal interface. It is coupled directly to the multiplex bus, or stub coupled through an additional isolation transformer located at the connection point. Fault isolation resistors provide short circuit protection.

    The philosophy and structure of the proposed U.S. Military Specification for Handling Qualities Requirements for Military Rotorcraft, MIL-H-8501B, are presented with emphasis on shipboard terminal operations. The impact of current and future naval operational requirements on the selection of appropriate combinations of basic vehicle dynamics and usable cue environments are identified. An example 'walk through' of MIL-H-8501B is conducted from task identification to determination of stability and control requirements. For selected basic vehicle dynamics, criteria as a function of input/response magnitude are presented. Additionally, rotorcraft design development implications are discussed.

    Two Al based MOFs (MIL-53(Al) and MIL-53-NH2 (Al)) were synthesized, and their photoelectrical, photophysical and photocatalytic properties towards oxygen evolution from water were investigated. Different from the ligand to metal charge transfer process previously reported, we proposes a new photocatalytic mechanism based on electron tunneling according to the results of theoretical calculation, steady state and time resolved fluorescence spectra. The organic linkers absorb photons, giving rise to electrons and holes. Then, the photogenerated electrons tunnel through the AlO6-octahedra, which not only inhibit the recombination of photogenerated charge carriers, but also is a key factor to the photocatalytic activity of Al based MOFs.

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

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

    Attention is given to the BUS-65153 Small Terminal Interface Circuit (STIC), the smallest self-contained MIL-STD-1553A/B Notice 1 & 2 and MIL-STD-1760A dual redundant Remote Terminal (RT). The Terminal was designed to support a dual redundant RT protocol, including special transceivers. The author discusses the key features, especially the programmable options which make this terminal so flexible. The STIC has programmable features, such as 12/16 MHz clock selection, improved zero crossing tolerance, external status word control, and two- or three-state operation. A buffered DMA interface, programmable for 8 or 16-bit transfers, supports a variety of microprocessors. The timing and control signals available to the terminal designer are also examined.

    2003-01-01

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

    Nakhlites are olivine-bearing clinopyroxene cumulates. Based on petrographic characteristics, they may be divided into groups that cooled at different rates and may have been formed at different depths in a single flow. The order of cooling rate from slowest to fastest is NWA998MIL03346. Nakhlite cumulus pyroxene grains consist of large cores that are nearly homogeneous in major element composition surrounded by thin rims that are zoned to Fe-rich compositions. Detailed study of these pyroxenes is important because they retain a record of the crystallization history of the nakhlite magma. Moreover, because the composition of the nakhlite parent melt cannot be directly determined, inversion of the major and minor element composition of the cumulate pyroxene cores can be used to estimate the composition of that melt. Thus it is important to understand the major and minor element zoning in the cumulus pyroxenes. While major elements are nearly homogeneous, minor elements exhibit distinctive zoning patterns that vary from one nakhlite to another. This paper reports unusual Cr zoning patterns in pyroxenes from MIL03346 (MIL) and contrast these with pyroxenes from Y593.

    Apollo and Luna samples were collected from a restricted area on the near side of the Moon, while the source craters of the lunar meteorites are randomly distributed. For example, Takeda et al. [1] and Yamaguchi et al. [2] found a variety of lithic clasts in Dho 489 and Y 86032 which were not represented by Apollo samples, and some of these clasts have lower rare earth elements (REE) and FeO abundances than Apollo anorthosites, respectively. Takeda et al. [1] and Yamaguchi et al. [2] concluded that Dho 489 and Y 86032 originated from the lunar farside. Therefore, lunar meteorites provide an opportunity to study lunar surface rocks from areas not sampled by Apollo and Luna missions. Three lunar anorthitic breccias (MIL 090034, 090036 and 090070) were found on the Miller Range Ice Field in Antarctica during the 2009-2010 ANSMET season [3]. In this study, we determined elemental abudnances for MIL 090034, 090036 and 090070 by using INAA and aimed to characterize these meteorites in chemical compositions in comparison with those for other lunar meteorites and Apollo samples.

    Two Al based MOFs (MIL-53(Al) and MIL-53-NH{sub 2} (Al)) were synthesized, and their photoelectrical, photophysical and photocatalytic properties towards oxygen evolution from water were investigated. Different from the ligand to metal charge transfer process previously reported, we proposes a new photocatalytic mechanism based on electron tunneling according to the results of theoretical calculation, steady state and time resolved fluorescence spectra. The organic linkers absorb photons, giving rise to electrons and holes. Then, the photogenerated electrons tunnel through the AlO{sub 6}-octahedra, which not only inhibit the recombination of photogenerated charge carriers, but also is a key factor to the photocatalytic activity of Al based MOFs. - Graphical abstract: The photoelectrical, photophysical and photocatalytic properties towards oxygen evolution from water of two Al based MOFs were investigated.

    We conducted an airgun survey in the waters of Ascension Island in May 1999 to determine new locations and depths for three Missile Impact Location System (MILS) hydrophones (ASC23, ASC24, and ASC26) currently in use by the Prototype International Data Center (PIDC) and the National Data Center (NDC). The nominal and new locations are summarized in Table 1. Although not rigorous, errors in the new locations and depths are conservatively estimated to be less than 100 m. The hydrophones are either on or near the ocean bottom in all three cases. The new depths are consistent with the following: Direct-phase airgun arrivals; Bathymetry determined along the track of the ship used for this airgun survey; Reflected phases from the airgun data; and Depths given in the original hydrophone installation report.

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

    MIL-68 (In) nano-rods were prepared by a facile solvothermal synthesis using NaOAc as modulator agent at 100°C for 30 min. The BET test showed that the specific surface area and pore volume of MIL-68 (In) nanorods were 1252 m(2) g(-1) and 0.80 cm(3) g(-1), respectively. The as-prepared MIL-68 (In) nanorods showed excellent adsorption capacity and rapid adsorption rate for removal of Congo red (CR) dye from water. The maximum adsorption capacity of MIL-68 (In) nanorods toward CR reached 1204 mg g(-1), much higher than MIL-68 (In) microrods and most of the previously reported adsorbents. The adsorption process of CR by MIL-68 (In) nano-rods was investigated and found to be obeying the Langmuir adsorption model in addition to pseudo-second-order rate equation. Moreover, the MIL-68 (In) nanorods showed an acceptable reusability after regeneration with ethanol. All information gives an indication that the as-prepared MIL-68 (In) nanorods show their potential as the adsorbent for highly efficient removal of CR in wastewater.

    In this work, Ni-doped graphene oxide/MIL-101 hybrid composites (Ni--GO/MIL) were prepared to investigate their hydrogen storage behaviors. Ni--GO/MIL was synthesized by adding Ni--GO in situ during the synthesis of MIL-101 using a hydrothermal process, which was conducted by conventional convection heating with Cr(III) ion as a metal center and telephthalic acid as organic ligands. The crystalline structures and morphologies were measured by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM), respectively. The specific surface area and micropore volume were investigated by N2/77 K adsorption isotherms using the Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method and Dubinin-Radushkevic (D-R) equation, respectively. The hydrogen storage capacity was investigated by BEL-HP at 77 K and 1 bar. The obtained results show that Ni--GO/MIL presents new directions for achieving novel hybrid materials with higher hydrogen storage capacity.

    A novel quinone-modified metal-organic frameworks NH2-MIL-101(Fe) was synthesized using a simple chemical method under mild condition. The introduced 2-anthraquinone sulfonate (AQS) can be covalently modified with NH2-MIL-101(Fe) and acts as a redox mediator to enhance the degradation of bisphenol A (BPA) via persulfate activation. The obtained AQS-NH-MIL-101(Fe) was characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, X-ray photoelectron spectra, cyclic voltammetry and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy. AQS-NH-MIL-101(Fe) exhibited better catalytic performance compared with NH2-MIL-101(Fe) and NH2-MIL-101(Fe) with free AQS (NH2-MIL-101(Fe)/AQS). That is, AQS-NH-MIL-101(Fe) was proved to be the most effective in that more than 97.7% of BPA was removed. The degradation rate constants (k) of AQS-NH-MIL-101(Fe) was 9-fold higher than that of NH2-MIL-101(Fe) and 7-fold higher than NH2-MIL-101(Fe)/AQS, indicating that AQS is a great electron-transfer mediator when modified with NH2-MIL-101(Fe). Based on the above results, the possible mechanism of catalytic reaction has been investigated in view of the trapping experiments. In addition, the AQS-NH-MIL-101(Fe) catalyst exhibited excellent stability and can be used several times without significant deterioration in performance.

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

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

    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) MIL-88A hexagonal microrods as a new photocatalyst show an active performance for methylene blue (MB) dye decolorization using visible light. MB decolorization over the MIL-88A photocatalyst follows first-order kinetics. The addition of a H2O2 electron acceptor can markedly enhance the photocatalytic MB decoloration performance of MIL-88A. Moreover, MIL-88A showed a very stable activity for MB decoloration after four consecutive usages. Owing to the advantages of the visible light response, low cost and abundance in nature, this active MIL-88A MOF photocatalyst would have great potential for environmental purification.

    The nanoporous frameworks VO(bdc), MIL-47, and M(OH)(bdc), MIL-53; bdc=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate, can absorb various guest species in their channels. As synthesized, the channels are filled with H{sub 2}bdc molecules that have been reported to be disordered, except for [In(OH)bdc](H{sub 2}bdc){sub 3/4}, 1, which has a inorganic-organic hybrid Vernier structure with the H{sub 2}bdc molecules forming an ordered sublattice.

The number of guest H{sub 2}bdc molecules per framework metal ion is determined by the ratio of the repeat distances of the two sublattices which depends on the size of the metal ion in the octahedral chain. The octahedral chains are parallel to [201] in 2, and to [100] in 3 and 4. Remarkably, all atoms in 3 and 4 show significant sinusoidal modulations transverse to the chain axis. - Graphical abstract: The sinusoidal modulation along the channel axis direction involving all atoms in the structure of [Al(OH)(bdc)](H{sub 2}bdc){sub 11/16}. - Highlights: • Crystal growth of MIL-47, MIL-53Al, and MIL-53Ga. • The Vernier structures have corner-sharing MO6 octrahedral chains and chains of H2BDC molecules. • The stoichiometry is determined by the ratio of the host framework to the guest H2BDC column lengths. • A correlation is established between the stoichiometry and the radius of the metal ion

    A study was conducted to improve the correlation between the electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) analysis models stated in MIL-STD-1541A and the suggested testing methods used for space systems. The test and analysis methods outlined in MIL-STD-1541A are described, and a comparative assessment of testing and analysis techniques as they relate to several EMC areas is presented. Suggestions on present analysis and test methods are introduced to harmonize and bring the analysis and testing tools in MIL-STD-1541A into closer agreement. It is suggested that test procedures in MIL-STD-1541A must be improved by providing alternatives to the present use of shielded enclosures as the primary site for such tests. In addition, the alternate use of anechoic chambers and open field test sites must be considered.

    The small explorer (SMEX) project at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) launched the first spaceflight implementation of the MIL-STD-1773 fiber optic data bus on the Solar Anomalous Magnetospheric Particle Explorer (SAMPEX) in July of 1992. The Small Explorer Data System (SEDS), of which the MIL-STD-1773 data bus is a part, has been successful. The MIL-STD-1773 bus is the implementation of the MIL-STD-1553 protocol using fiber optics. Advantages of the fiber optic bus over the electrical bus include lower power, lower weight, and immunity from EMI/RFI. It does not radiate electrical or magnetic fields. It is a nonconductor so it cannot conduct electrical noise into or from a subsystem. This is particularly advantageous on a spacecraft with very sensitive instruments which are often susceptible to electrical interference. Although the MIL-STD-1773 bus is a 1 Mbps bus like the MIL-STD-1553 bus, the fiber optics also provide a path to the much higher rate systems required in upcoming NASA missions.

    The nanoporous frameworks VO(bdc), MIL-47, and M(OH)(bdc), MIL-53; bdc=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate, can absorb various guest species in their channels. As synthesized, the channels are filled with H2bdc molecules that have been reported to be disordered, except for [In(OH)bdc](H2bdc)3/4, 1, which has a inorganic-organic hybrid Vernier structure with the H2bdc molecules forming an ordered sublattice. Based on X-ray data from large single crystals grown by hydrothermal techniques, similar Vernier structures have been found for MIL-47, [VO(bdc)](H2bdc)5/7, 2, MIL-53Al, [Al(OH)(bdc)](H2bdc)11/16, 3, and MIL-53Ga, [Ga(OH)(bdc)](H2bdc)12/17, 4. The Vernier structures of 2-4 at room temperature were determined based on superstructure unit cells that index both host and guest sublattices: 2, space group P21, a=23.903(2), b=17.191(2), c=25.722(2) Å, β=105.914(8)°; 3, P21/n, a=105.224(4), b=12.2441(5), c=17.0143(6) Å, β=89.99(1)°; 4, P21, a=114.562(5), b=12.1503(5), c=17.4275(7) Å, β=89.99(1)°. The number of guest H2bdc molecules per framework metal ion is determined by the ratio of the repeat distances of the two sublattices which depends on the size of the metal ion in the octahedral chain. The octahedral chains are parallel to [201] in 2, and to [100] in 3 and 4. Remarkably, all atoms in 3 and 4 show significant sinusoidal modulations transverse to the chain axis.

    2016-12-01

    Various analytical applications of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have been rapidly developed in the past few years. However, the employment of MOFs as catalysts in chemiluminescence (CL) analysis is rare. Here, for the first time, we found that MIL-53(Fe) MOFs could significantly enhance the CL of luminol in the presence of H2O2 in an alkaline medium. The CL intensity in the luminol-H2O2-MIL-53(Fe) system was about 20 times higher than that in the luminol-H2O2 system. Moreover, the XRD pattern of MIL-53(Fe) after CL reaction was almost the same as that of the original MIL-53(Fe), confirming the catalytic role of MIL-53(Fe) in the luminol-H2O2-MIL-53(Fe) system. The possible mechanism behind the enhancing phenomenon was discussed based on the results from the CL spectra, FL probe experiments, and active oxygen species measurements. By coupling with the glucose oxidase-based catalytic oxidation reaction, a sensitive and selective CL method was developed for the detection of glucose. There is a linear relationship between the logarithm of CL intensity and the logarithm of glucose concentration in the range from 0.1 to 10 μM, and a detection limit of 0.05 μM (S/N = 3) is obtained. The proposed method has been applied to the determination of glucose in human serum samples with satisfactory results. Graphical abstract MIL-53(Fe) MOFs are found to greatly enhance the chemiluminescence emission of the luminol-H2O2 system, and this finding resulted in a new chemiluminescence method for biosensing of glucose when coupled with the glucose oxidase.

    In order to improve the adsorption speed of iodine from water, MIL-101 with extra-large specific surface area (3054 m2/g) was chosen as a base material, and then, Ag was doped into MIL-101 to enhance its adsorption capacity through an incipient-wetness impregnation method. With the characterization of SEM-EDS, TEM, XRD, XPS, TGA, IR, and BET techniques, the resulting Ag was identified to be stay in the framework of MIL-101 stably in the form of AgII (generally, AgII cation is not stable). However, after the adsorption of I- anions, AgII stay in the cages of MIL-101 in the form of AgI/AgI3. It is important to note that, all adsorbents show high adsorption speed of iodine in solution. The equilibrium adsorption time of the adsorbents were acquired by only a few minutes, which can be attributed to its large BET surface area. An interesting note is that, when the doping amount of Ag is less than 9%, the iodine anions adsorption capacity of Ag@MIL-101 is greater than its theoretical adsorption capacity. It shows that both physical adsorption and chemical adsorption are existed in the adsorption process. This study hopefully leads to a new and highly efficient Ag-based adsorbent for iodide adsorb from solutions.

  17. Extending MIL-STD-1553 bandwidth: a study of impairments, EMI, and channel capacity

    Hegarty, Michael G.

    2004-09-01

    This paper explores the possibility of increasing the data rates on existing MIL-STD-1553 networks beyond its current one megabit per second rate. A combination of empirical and theoretical methods is used in predicting the capacity of a MIL-STD-1553 network. The analysis begins with an assessment of the usable bandwidth in a 1553 network followed by the development of models to predict signal-to-noise ratios based on a transmit signal level that meets the emissions limits of MIL-STD-461 and a noise level that is representative of a real 1553 system. This paper presents the theoretical capacity limits for several 1553 network configurations. The results of the analysis predict that the theoretical capacity within a legacy MIL-STD-1553 system is expected to be several hundred megabits per second. The achievable rate depends on network configuration and usable bandwidth. Methods of approaching these theoretical capacity limits is not discussed in this paper, rather, this paper provides a framework and a baseline for the analysis of higher data rates over legacy MIL-STD-1553 networks.

    The photocatalytic decolorization of methylene blue dye in aqueous solution using a novel photocatalyst MIL-53(Fe) metal-organic frameworks was investigated under UV-vis light and visible light irradiation. The effect of electron acceptor H(2)O(2), KBrO(3) and (NH(4))(2)S(2)O(8) addition on the photocatalytic performance of MIL-53(Fe) was also evaluated. The results show that MIL-53(Fe) photocatalyst exhibited photocatalytic activity for MB decolorization both under UV-vis light and visible light irradiation, and the MB decolorization over MIL-53(Fe) photocatalyst followed the first-order kinetics. The addition of different electron acceptors all enhances the photocatalytic performance of MIL-53(Fe) photocatalyst, and the enhanced rate follows the order of H(2)O(2)>(NH(4))(2)S(2)O(8)>KBrO(3) under UV-vis light irradiation, while in the order of (NH(4))(2)S(2)O(8)>H(2)O(2)>KBrO(3) under visible light irradiation. Moreover, MIL-53(Fe) did not exhibit any obvious loss of the activity for MB decolorization during five repeated usages. The photocatalytic activities over MIL-53(M) (M=Al, Fe), the isostructure to MIL-53(Fe), indicate that the metal centers show nil effect on the photocatalytic activity of MIL-53(M) photocatalysts.

  1. MIL-STD-1553 remote terminal design using ASIC megacell technology

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Jordan, Anthony F.

    In the early development of MIL-STD-1553, board level implementations of remote terminals, bus controllers, and monitors were the norm. As technology progressed, hybrid solutions followed by monolithic solutions became the preferred solution of avionics design engineers implementing MIL-STD-1553 interfaces. Recent advances in ASIC technology allows the integration of complete MIL-STD-1553 interface into a silicon substrate along with a host microprocessor, memory, and support logic. The benefits of such a solution include reduced board space, increased flexibility, and higher reliability. A device with similar attributes was designed by Rockwell International, Rocketdyne Division, and manufactured by United Technologies Microelectronics Center (UTMC) for use on Space Station Freedom. This paper outlines the development and functionality of the ASIC device.

    Based on the analysis of the MIL-STD-1773 data bus modulation scheme, two optical modulation schemes are proposed for designing this kind of data bus, namely, partial tri-level Manchester II bi-phase coding (PTMBC) and extended Manchester II bi-phase coding with beginning-stopping flags (EMBC-BSF), which can efficiently solve the problem related to three outputs at a MIL-STD-1773 optical receiver with low complexity. Then we focus on the analysis of error probability and optical receiver sensitivity for MIL-STD-1773 data buses with three modulation schemes of Manchester II bi-phase coding, PTMBC , and EMBC-BSF. The results show that both the PTMBC and EMBC-BSF modulation schemes have almost the identical and worse receiver sensitivity than that of the Manchester bi-level coding by ~3dB.

    Trivalent metal-based MIL-53 (Al{sup 3+}, Cr{sup 3+}, Fe{sup 3+}, In{sup 3+}) compounds are interesting metal–organic frameworks (MOFs) with breathing effect and are promising gas sorption materials. Replacing bridging μ{sub 2}-OH group by neutral ligands such as pyridine N-oxide and its derivatives (PNOs), the trivalent metal-based MIL-53 analogous structures could be extended to bivalent metal systems. The introduction of PNOs and bivalent metal elements endows the frameworks with new structural features and physical and chemical properties. This minireview summarizes the recent development of bivalent metal-based MIL-53 analogues (Mn{sup 2+}, Co{sup 2+}, Ni{sup 2+}), typically, focusing on the synthetic strategies and potential applications based on our own works and literatures. We present the synthetic strategy to achieve structures evolution from single-ligand-walled to double-ligand-walled channel. Properties and application of these new materials in a wide range of potential areas are discussed including thermal stability, gas adsorption, magnetism and liquid-phase separation. Promising directions of this research field are also highlighted. - Graphical abstract: The recent development of bivalent metal-based MIL-53 analogues (Mn{sup 2+}, Co{sup 2+}, Ni{sup 2+}) on their synthetic strategies, properties and potential applications was reviewed. - Highlights: • Structure features of bivalent metal-based MIL-53 analogues are illustrated. • Important properties and application are presented. • Host–guest interactions are main impetus for liquid-phase separation. • Promising directions of bivalent metal-based MIL-53 analogues are highlighted.

    Three types of high performance silicon solar cells, textured P(+)8 to 10 mil, planar P(+)8 to 10 mil and planar P(+)2 mil were evaluated for their low temperature and low intensity (LTLI) performance. Sixteen cells of each type were subjected to 11 temperatures and 9 intensities. The textured P(+)8 to 10 mil cells provided the best performance both at 1 astronomical unit and at LTLI conditions. The average efficiencies of this cell were 14.5 percent at 1 solar constant/+25 C and 18.7 percent at 0.086 solar constant/-100 C.

  5. MIL05029, an (Impact?) Melt Rock From the Early Solar System

    Impact cratering is the dominant geologic process affecting the surfaces of small asteroids and, due to the relative ease of resetting the 39Ar-40Ar (Ar-Ar) system, heavily shocked and/or melted meteorites can be used to reconstruct the impact history of the asteroid belt. MIL05029 is an L-chondrite melt rock with an Ar-Ar age greater than 4.4 Ga, making it the third such meteorite known (the other two being Shaw and PAT91501). Moreover, while Shaw and PAT91501 have Ar-Ar ages between 4.4-4.5 Ga, three whole-rock samples of MIL05029 give well-defined plateau ages of 4.53±0.02 Ga, the oldest ever measured in an L-chondrite melt rock. As a result of this older age, the event that created MIL05029 could have occurred while metamorphism was still occurring on the parent body. Both Shaw and PAT91501 contain shocked relic material, indicating impact as the heat source. However, MIL05029 is a complete melt without this tell-tale signature, making definitive identification of the melt-forming event more complicated. MIL05029 is depleted in metal and sulfide relative to unshocked L-chondrites (<2% vs. ~14%), indicating a loss of denser phases after melting of the asteroid. Because the canonical L-chondrite parent body was not sufficiently hot for differentiation, the metal depletion in MIL05029 is either the product of shock-melting on that body (the more probable solution), or indicates MIL05069 formed on a previously unknown parent body where endogenous melting occurred. Petrologically, all three meteorites are grossly similar. For example, all three contain large pyroxene grains that poikilitically enclose olivine, but melt in both Shaw and PAT9150 contains vesicles, which is not true for MIL05029. The Ar-Ar data reveals two main sources of 39Ar (a proxy for K), both with similar activation energies, but with grain sizes different by about a factor of 5. Microprobe data also reveal two sources of K, melt inclusions and albitic feldspar, whose K mass balance and grain

    A molecular simulation study is reported on glucose recovery from aqueous solutions by adsorption in metal-organic framework MIL-101. The F atom of MIL-101 is identified to be the most favorable adsorption site. Among three MIL-101-X (X = H, NH2 or CH3), the parent MIL-101 exhibits the highest adsorption capacity and recovery efficacy. Upon functionalization by -NH2 or -CH3 group, the steric hindrance in MIL-101 increases; consequently, the interactions between glucose and framework become less attractive, thus reducing the capacity and mobility of glucose. The presence of ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methyl-imidazolium acetate, as an impurity reduces the strength of hydrogen-bonding between glucose and MIL-101, and leads to lower capacity and mobility. Upon adding anti-solvent (ethanol or acetone), a similar adverse effect is observed. The simulation study provides useful structural and dynamic properties of glucose in MIL-101, and it suggests that MIL-101 might be a potential candidate for glucose recovery.

    2015-06-01

    Minimally invasive liver surgery (MILS) is going to be a method with a wide diffusion even in general surgery units. Organization, learning curve effect, and the environment are crucial issues to evaluate before starting a program of minimally invasive liver resections. Analysis of a consecutive series of 70 patients has been used to define advantages and limits of starting a program of MILS in a general surgery unit. Seventeen MILS have been calculated with the cumulative sum method as the number of cases to complete the learning curve. Operative times [270 (60-480) vs. 180 (15-550) min; p 0.01] and rate of conversion (6/17 vs. 5/53; p 0.018) decrease after this number of cases. More complex cases can be managed after a proper optimization of all steps of liver resection. When a high confidence of the medical and nurse staff with MILS is reached, economical and strategic issues should be evaluated in order to establish a multidisciplinary hepatobiliary unit independent from the general surgery unit to manage more complex cases.

    Exotic Electro-Optics (EEO) recently completed a series of MIL-STD-810F, Method 510.4 sand erosion tests at multiple commercial testing sites. During this testing process, it became apparent that no two environmental test vendors are alike, even if MIL-STD-810F is specified in all cases. Three different test laboratories performing the same Method 510.4 sand test on identically fabricated samples yielded three different results. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the Engineer to confirm that the test vendor"s equipment, processes, and procedures produce a test environment that is applicable and a result that is accurate based upon the customer specified test requirement and the MIL-STD-810 methodology. Some critical factors that determine the utility of a test are particle concentration, air velocity, particle size and composition, and the ability to maintain these parameters over test duration of up to 90 minutes. EEO has identified a number of parametric details critical to maximizing the stability and accuracy of MIL-STD-810F, Method 510.4, Procedure II sand testing. These strategies will be presented.

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

    Metal-organic frameworks have shown interesting features for biomedical applications, such as drug delivery and imaging agents. The benchmarked mesoporous iron(III) trimesate MIL-100 MOF nanocarrier combines progressive release of high drug cargoes with absence of visible in vivo toxicity. Although in a previous study pharmacokinetics and biodistribution of MIL-100 nanoparticles were evaluated in the long term (from 24h to 1 month), the crucial times for drug targeting and delivery applications are shorter (up to 24h). Thus, this work aims to study the blood circulating profile and organ accumulation of MIL-100 nanocarrier at early times after administration. For this purpose, after intravenous administration to rats, both constitutive components of MIL-100 (trimesate and iron) were quantified by high performance liquid chromatography and a spectrophotometric method, respectively. The pharmacokinetic profile suggested that the nanoparticles act as a depot in the blood stream during the first hours before being cleared. Accumulation took mainly place in the liver and, in some extent, in the spleen. Nevertheless, histological studies demonstrated the absence of morphological alterations due to the presence of the particles in these organs. Liver function was however slightly altered as reflected by the increased plasma aspartate aminotransferase concentrations. Finally trimesate was progressively eliminated in urine.

    Iron-based MIL-53 crystals with uniform size were successfully synthesized using a microwave-assisted solvothermal method and characterized by XRD, FE-SEM and DRS. We also investigated the photocatalytic activity of MIL-53(Fe) for the decomposition of methylene blue using H2O2 as an electron acceptor. From XRD and SEM results, the fully crystallized MIL-53(Fe) materials were obtained regardless of preparation method. From DRS results, MIL-53(Fe) samples prepared using microwave-assisted process displayed the absorption spectrum up to the visible region and then they showed the high photocatalytic activity under visible light irradiation. The MIL-53(Fe) catalyst prepared by two times microwave irradiation showed the highest activity.

    A novel thymine-functionalized MIL-101 (MIL-101-Thymine) material was synthesized using a post-synthesis method to remove mercury at a high efficiency. MIL-101-Thymine was successfully prepared in this work and was confirmed by several characterization methods, such as (13)C nuclear magnetic resonance, X-ray diffraction, and infrared spectroscopy. The Hg(2+) adsorption agreed well with the Langmuir model, and the maximum adsorption capacity was 51.27mg/g. The adsorption rate fit with the pseudo-second-order kinetic model. Furthermore, MIL-101-Thymine exhibited excellent selectivity towards Hg(2+) over other cations, and the maximum value of the selective coefficient reached 947.34; this result is very likely due to the highly selective interactions of T-Hg(2+)-T in MIL-101-Thymine. The result of X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy also showed that Hg(2+) was coordinated with the N of thymine in MIL-101-Thymine. Moreover, the results of the thermogravimetric analysis and adsorption experiments showed that the Hg atom was two-coordinated with the thymine group. MIL-101-Thymine was used to remove trace Hg(2+) in real water samples, and satisfactory recoveries were obtained.

    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are considered as suitable materials for various applications in the area of photocatalysis. On the other hand, 2D BiOBr materials are efficient for the photodegradation of organic dyes under visible light illumination. In this work, BiOBr/NH2-MIL-125(Ti) composite photocatalysts with different NH2-MIL-125(Ti) content were prepared by incorporating NH2-MIL-125(Ti) with BiOBr using a co-precipitation method. A series of characterizations confirmed the strong synergistic effect between BiOBr and NH2-MIL-125(Ti). In rhodamine B (RhB) degradation experiments, the composite photocatalyst with a mass percent of 7 wt% NH2-MIL-125(Ti) exhibited an improved photocatalytic activity compared to pristine BiOBr and NH2-MIL-125(Ti). Furthermore, the enhanced photocatalytic performance under visible light illumination could be attributed to the Ti(3+)-Ti(4+) intervalence electron transfer and synergistic effect between NH2-MIL-125(Ti) and BiOBr, and also resulted in a separation efficiency of photo-generated electron-hole pairs during the photocatalytic reaction. This study can open up numerous opportunities for the development of various MOF-based visible light photocatalysts when combined with 2D bismuth oxyhalide materials for applications in environmental cleaning.

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

    The systems developer who needs Precise Time and Time Interval (PTTI) capability has relatively little guidance in the form of military standards, particularly for systems using atomic clocks or other sources of very precise time and frequency. The existing standards, including MIL-STD-188-115, MIL-F-2991(EC), and DOD-STD-1399 are discussed. These documents were written several years ago and do not always reflect current practice or take advantage of more recent technology improvements. User needs have also changed over the years and some of those needs such as more detailed time codes are not being met. We will summarize what's available and what's good and bad about it. The second part will make suggestions about what should be done in the future to promote and facilitate good PTTI design practice. Topics will include clock performance parameters, environmental considerations, time codes, signal isolation, and time dissemination.

    A facile and rapid post-synthetic strategy was proposed to prepare a glycine functionalized MIL-53(Fe), namely glycine-MIL-53(Fe), by a simple mixing of water dispersible MIL-53(Fe) and glycine. The FT-IR, SEM, XRD and zeta potential were used to characterize the glycine-MIL-53(Fe). The result showed that glycine post-synthetic modification of MIL-53(Fe) did not change in the morphology and crystal structure of MIL-53(Fe). Interestingly, compared with MIL-53(Fe), the glycine-MIL-53(Fe) exhibits an enhanced peroxidase-like activity, which could catalyze the oxidation of TMB by H2O2 to produce an intensive color reaction. Kinetic analysis indicated that the Km of glycine-MIL-53(Fe) for TMB was one-tenth of that of MIL-53(Fe). The glycine-MIL-53(Fe) as peroxidase mimetic displays better stability under alkaline or acidic conditions than MIL-53(Fe). The good performance of glycine-MIL-53(Fe) over MIL-53(Fe) may be attributed to the increase of affinity between TMB and the glycine-MIL-53(Fe). With these characteristics, a simple and sensitive method was developed for the detection of H2O2 and glucose. The linear detection range for H2O2 is 0.10-10μM with a detection limit of 49nM, and glucose could be linearly detected in the range from 0.25 to 10μM with a detection limit of 0.13μM. The proposed method was successfully used for glucose detection in human serum samples.

    2002-01-01

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

    2013-02-05

    A molecular simulation study is reported to investigate liquid chromatographic separation in metal-organic framework MIL-101. Two mixtures are considered: three amino acids (Arg, Phe, and Trp) in aqueous solution and three xylene isomers (p-, m-, and o-xylene) dissolved in hexane. For the first mixture, the elution order is found to be Arg > Phe > Trp. The hydrophilic Arg has the strongest interaction with the polar mobile phase (water) and the weakest interaction with the stationary phase (MIL-101), and thus transports at the fastest velocity. Furthermore, Arg forms the largest number of hydrogen bonds with water and possesses the largest hydrophilic solvent-accessible surface area. For the second mixture, the elution order is p-xylene > m-xylene > o-xylene, consistent with available experimental observation. With the largest polarity as compared to p- and m-xylenes, o-xylene interacts the most strongly with the stationary phase and exhibits the slowest transport velocity. For both mixtures, the underlying separation mechanism is elucidated from detailed energetic and structural analysis. It is revealed that the separation can be attributed to the cooperative solute-solvent and solute-framework interactions. This simulation study, for the first time, provides molecular insight into liquid chromatographic separation in a MOF and suggests that MIL-101 might be an interesting material for the separation of industrially important liquid mixtures.

    Boeing has first developed a space-qualifiable, radiation- hardened, dual-rate MIL-STD-1773A fiber-optic transceiver for military command/response time division multiplexed data bus applications. This will provide an enhancement path from a fixed low data rate MIL-STD-1553 bus to a high data rate MIL-STD-1773 bus with minor modification of terminals supporting the existing function. The transceiver operates at dual-rates of both 1 and 20 Mbps over temperature (minus 25 to plus 85 degrees Celsius), and it shows a large dynamic range of greater than 20 dB in support of 32-node star network; a sensitivity of up to minus 38.7 dBm and a saturation of minus 16.1 dBm (limited mainly by test source power) at BER less than or equal to 1 multiplied by 10-10. These transceivers are currently being utilized for space and military applications at DARPA, NASA, and JPL. In this paper we describe the dual-rate transceiver design requirements, ASIC and hybrid design, and performance test results.

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

    MIL-101(Cr), one of the most important prototypical MOFs, is well investigated and widely used in many scientific fields. With regard to MOF synthesis in general, the addition of a modifier is commonly used to improve the properties of the products. The effect of inorganic (mineral) and organic acid modifiers was thoroughly investigated in the synthesis of MIL-101(Cr) and HNO3 could increase the yield to over 80% of a product with average SBET > 3200 m(2) g(-1) in repeated experiments (from an average of 50% in most published syntheses) in small-scale laboratory synthesis. The large-scale synthesis could use the finding of HNO3 addition and produce MIL-101(Cr) in >100 g quantities with yields near 70% and BET-surface areas near 4000 m(2) g(-1). The addition of acetic acid (CH3COOH) together with seeding could decrease the reaction temperature, the lowest being 160 °C (from typically 220 °C in published procedures), with still relatively good yield and BET surface area of the product. The use of other strong inorganic or weak carboxylic acids as modulators typically caused a decrease in yield and porosity.

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

    In order to improve the adsorption speed of iodine from water, MIL-101 with extra-large specific surface area (3054 m{sup 2}/g) was chosen as a base material, and then, Ag was doped into MIL-101 to enhance its adsorption capacity through an incipient-wetness impregnation method. With the characterization of SEM-EDS, TEM, XRD, XPS, TGA, IR, and BET techniques, the resulting Ag was identified to be stay in the framework of MIL-101 stably in the form of Ag{sup II} (generally, Ag{sup II} cation is not stable). However, after the adsorption of I{sup −} anions, Ag{sup II} stay in the cages of MIL-101 in the form of AgI/AgI{sub 3}. It is important to note that, all adsorbents show high adsorption speed of iodine in solution. The equilibrium adsorption time of the adsorbents were acquired by only a few minutes, which can be attributed to its large BET surface area. An interesting note is that, when the doping amount of Ag is less than 9%, the iodine anions adsorption capacity of Ag@MIL-101 is greater than its theoretical adsorption capacity. It shows that both physical adsorption and chemical adsorption are existed in the adsorption process. This study hopefully leads to a new and highly efficient Ag-based adsorbent for iodide adsorb from solutions. - Graphical abstract: Ag{sup II} stay in the framework of MIL-101 stably because of F{sup -}, after the adsorption of I{sup -} anions, Ag{sup I}I /Ag{sup I}I{sub 3} stay in the cages of MIL-101. The equilibrium adsorption time of Ag@MIL-101 were acquired by only a few minutes. - Highlights: • Ag{sup II} was doped into MIL-101 by an incipient-wetness impregnation method. • Both physical adsorption and chemical adsorption are verified in the adsorption process. • Ag@MIL-101 exhibits high adsorption speed and adsorption capacity. • Ag@MIL-101 can be effectively applied to the removal of radioactive iodide anions from water in acidic and neutral medium.

    We present the in situ synthesis of Pt nanoparticles within MIL-101-Cr (MIL = Materials Institute Lavoisier) by means of atomic layer deposition (ALD). The obtained Pt@MIL-101 materials were characterized by means of N₂ adsorption and X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) measurements, showing that the structure of the metal organic framework was well preserved during the ALD deposition. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis confirmed the deposition of highly dispersed Pt nanoparticles with sizes determined by the MIL-101-Cr pore sizes and with an increased Pt loading for an increasing number of ALD cycles. The Pt@MIL-101 material was examined as catalyst in the hydrogenation of different linear and cyclic olefins at room temperature, showing full conversion for each substrate. Moreover, even under solvent free conditions, full conversion of the substrate was observed. A high concentration test has been performed showing that the Pt@MIL-101 is stable for a long reaction time without loss of activity, crystallinity and with very low Pt leaching.

  1. Performance of Coded Offset Quadrature Phase-Shift Keying (OQPSK) and MIL-STD Shaped OQPSK (SOQPSK) with Iterative Decoding

    Li, L.; Simon, M. K.

    2004-02-01

    We show that, similar to the trellis-coded modulation representation of MIL-STD shaped offset quadrature phase-shift keying (SOQPSK), offset quadrature phase-shift keying (OQPSK) can be decomposed into a "degraded" trellis encoder and a memoryless mapper. Based on the representations of OQPSK and MIL-STD SOQPSK as trellis-coded modulations, we investigate the potential coding gains achievable from the application of simple outer codes to form a concatenated coding structure with iterative decoding. For MIL-STD SOQPSK, we describe the optimum receiver corresponding to its trellis-coded modulation form and then propose a simplified receiver. The bit-error-rate (BER) performances of both receivers for uncoded and coded MIL-STD SOQPSK are simulated and compared to those of OQPSK and Feher-patented quadrature phase-shift keying (FQPSK). The asymptotic BER performance of MIL-STD SOQPSK also is analyzed and compared to that of OQPSK and FQPSK. Simulation results show that, compared to their uncoded systems, both OQPSK and MIL-STD SOQPSK obtain significant coding gains by applying iterative decoding to either the parallel concatenated coding scheme or the serial one, even when very simple outer codes are used.

X-ray fluorescence (XRF) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analysis confirmed the deposition of highly dispersed Pt nanoparticles with sizes determined by the MIL-101-Cr pore sizes and with an increased Pt loading for an increasing number of ALD cycles. The Pt@MIL-101 material was examined as catalyst in the hydrogenation of different linear and cyclic olefins at room temperature, showing full conversion for each substrate. Moreover, even under solvent free conditions, full conversion of the substrate was observed. A high concentration test has been performed showing that the Pt@MIL-101 is stable for a long reaction time without loss of activity, crystallinity and with very low Pt leaching. PMID:28344301

    The new aluminium based metal-organic framework [Al(OH)(O2C-C4H8-CO2)]·H2O denoted as Al-MIL-53-ADP-lp (lp stands for large pore) was synthesised under solvothermal conditions. This solid is an analogue of the archetypical aluminium terephthalate Al-MIL-53 based on the aliphatic single-chain linker molecule adipic acid (H2ADP, hexanedioic acid). In contrast to its aromatic counterparts, Al-MIL-53-ADP exhibits a structural breathing behaviour solely upon dehydration/rehydration. The crystal structure of the anhydrous compound denoted as Al-MIL-53-ADP-np (np stands for narrow pore) was determined by a combination of forcefield-based computations and Rietveld refinement of the powder X-ray diffraction data while the structure of the hydrated form Al-MIL-53-ADP-lp was derived computationally by a combination of force field based methods and Density Functional Theory calculations. Both structures were further supported by (1)H, (13)C and (27)Al high-resolution NMR MAS 1D data coupled again with simulations. Al-MIL-53-ADP was further characterised by means of vibrational spectroscopy, elemental analysis, thermogravimetry and water vapour sorption.

    In this study, oxygen selectivity in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) at exceptionally high temperatures originally predicted by Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) modeling is now confirmed by synthesis, sorption metal center access, in particular Sc and Fe. Based on DFT M-O2 binding energies, we chose the large pored MIL-100 framework for metal center access, in particular Sc and Fe. Both resulted in preferential O2 and N2 gas uptake at temperatures ranging from 77 K to ambient temperatures (258 K, 298 K and 313 K).

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

    The draft Mil-Std-1540E has been updated to reflect lessons learned since its publication as an SMC Standard in 2008, [1], and an earlier Aerospace Corporation Technical Report released in 2006, [2]. This paper discusses the technical rationale supporting some of the unit random vibration test requirements to provide better insight into their derivation and application to programs. It is intended that these requirements be tailored for each program to reflect the customer risk profile. Several tailoring options are provided and a two phase test strategy is discussed to highlight its applicability to utilizing heritage hardware in new applications.

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

    The MIL-STD-462 CS02 conducted susceptibility test setup, performed during electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) testing, consists of an audio transformer with the secondary used as an inductor and a large capacitor. Together, these two components form an L-type low-pass filter to minimize the injected test signal input into the power source. Some flight hardware power input configurations are not compatible with this setup and break into oscillation when powered up. This can damage flight hardware and caused a catastrophic failure to an item tested in the Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC) Large EMC Test Facility.

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

    2014-01-21

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

  12. Petrology and chemistry of MIL 03346 and its significance in understanding the petrogenesis of nakhlites on Mars

    Antarctic meteorite Miller Range (MIL) 03346 is a nakhlite composed of 79% clinopyroxene, ˜1% olivine, and 20% vitrophyric intercumulus material. We have performed a petrological and geochemical study of MIL 03346, demonstrating a petrogenetic history similar to previously discovered nakhlites. Quantitative textural study of MIL 03346 indicates long (>1 × 101 yr) residence times for the cumulus augite, whereas the skeletal Fe-Ti oxide, fayalite, and sulfide in the vitrophyric intercumulus matrix suggest rapid cooling, probably as a lava flow. From the relatively high forsterite contents of olivine (up to Fo43) compared with other nakhlites and compositions of augite cores (Wo38-42En35-40Fs22-28) and their hedenbergite rims, we suggest that MIL 03346 is part of the same or a similar Martian cumulate-rich lava flow as other nakhlites. However, MIL 03346 has experienced less equilibration and faster cooling than other nakhlites discovered to date. Calculated trace element concentrations based upon modal abundances of MIL 03346 and its constituent minerals are identical to whole rock trace element abundances. Parental melts for augite have REE patterns that are approximately parallel with whole rock and intercumulus melt using experimentally defined partition coefficients. This parallelism reflects closed-system crystallization for MIL 03346, where the only significant petrogenetic process between formation of augite and eruption and emplacement of the nakhlite flow has been fractional crystallization. A model for the petrogenesis of MIL 03346 and the nakhlites (Nakhla, Governador Valadares, Lafayette, Yamato-000593, Northwest Africa (NWA) 817, NWA 998) would include: 1) partial melting and ascent of melt generated from a long-term LREE depleted mantle source, 2) crystallization of cumulus augite (±olivine, ±magnetite) in a shallow-level Martian magma chamber, 3) eruption of the crystal-laden nakhlite magma onto the surface of Mars, 4) cooling, crystal settling

    A novel porous nanosized humidity-sensing material of amine-functionalized titanium metal organic framework (MOF), NH2-MIL-125(Ti), was investigated. NH2-MIL-125(Ti) nanoparticles with high phase purity and good physicochemical property were synthesized by a simple hydrothermal method. The nanosized MOF was characterized by X-ray diffraction and scanning electron microscope. The average size of the MOF nanoparticles is around 300 nm. Then NH2-MIL-125(Ti) humidity sensor was fabricated by coating the nanosized materials on interdigitated electrodes. The humidity sensor based on NH2-MIL-125(Ti) shows good linearity of RH (11-95 % RH), as well as fast response and recovery time. The RH detecting range is from 11 to 95 % RH at 100 Hz. The response and recovery time are about 45 and 50 s, respectively. Moreover, the sensing mechanism was discussed by complex impedance analysis in detail. These results indicate the potential application of NH2-MIL-125(Ti) in humidity sensors.

    Modified pyrimidine monophosphates such as methyl dCMP (mdCMP), hydroxymethyl dUMP (hmdUMP) and hmdCMP in some phages are synthesized by a large group of enzymes termed as thymidylate synthases (TS). Thymidylate is a nucleotide required for DNA synthesis and thus TS is an important drug target. In the biosynthetic pathway of the nucleoside fungicide mildiomycin isolated from Streptomyces rimofaciens ZJU5119, a cytidylate (CMP) hydroxymethylase, MilA, catalyzes the conversion of CMP into 5′-hydroxymethyl CMP (hmCMP) with an efficiency (kcat/KM) of 5-fold faster than for deoxycytidylate (dCMP). MilA is thus the first enzyme of the TS superfamily preferring CMP to dCMP. Here, we determined the crystal structures of MilA and its complexes with various substrates including CMP, dCMP and hmCMP. Comparing these structures to those of dCMP hydroxymethylase (CH) from T4 phage and TS from Escherichia coli revealed that two residues in the active site of CH and TS, a serine and an arginine, are respectively replaced by an alanine and a lysine, Ala176 and Lys133, in MilA. Mutation of A176S/K133R of MilA resulted in a reversal of substrate preference from CMP to dCMP. This is the first study reporting the evolution of the conserved TS in substrate selection from DNA metabolism to secondary nucleoside biosynthesis. PMID:28000775

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

    MIL-101(Cr) has drawn much attention due to its high stability compared with other metal-organic frameworks. In this study, three trace flue gas contaminants (H2O, NO, SO2) were each added to a 10 vol% CO2/N2 feed flow and found to have a minimal impact on the adsorption capacity of CO2. In dynamic CO2 regeneration experiments, complete regeneration occurred in 10 min at 328 K for temperature swing adsorption-N2-stripping under a 50 cm(3)/min N2 flow and at 348 K for vacuum-temperature swing adsorption at 20 KPa. Almost 99% of the pre-regeneration adsorption capacity was preserved after 5 cycles of adsorption/desorption under a gas flow of 10 vol% CO2, 100 ppm SO2, 100 ppm NO, and 10% RH, respectively. Strong resistance to flue gas contaminants, mild recovery conditions, and excellent recycling efficiency make MIL-101(Cr) an attractive adsorbent support for CO2 capture.

    Electrical connectors corrode. Even our best SA and MC connectors finished with 50 to 100 microinches of gold over 50 to 100 microinches of nickel corrode. This work started because some, but not all, lots of connectors held in KC stores for a decade had been destroyed by pore corrosion (chemical corrosion). We have identified a MIL-L-87177 lubricant that absolutely stops chemical corrosion on SA connectors, even in the most severe environments. For commercial connectors which typically have thinner plating thicknesses, not only does the lubricant significantly retard effects of chemical corrosion, but also it greatly prolongs the fretting life. This report highlights the initial development history and use of the lubricant at Bell Labs and AT&T, and the Battelle studies and the USAF experience that lead to its deployment to stop dangerous connector corrosion on the F-16. We report the Sandia, HFM&T and Battelle development work, connector qualification, and material compatibility studies that demonstrate its usefulness and safety on JTA and WR systems. We will be applying MIL-L-87177 Connector Lubricant to all new connectors that go into KC stores. We recommend that it be applied to connectors on newly built cables and equipment as well as material that recycles through manufacturing locations from the field.

    2014-01-01

    Summary The geometric and electronic structure of the MIL-47(V) metal-organic framework (MOF) is investigated by using ab initio density functional theory (DFT) calculations. Special focus is placed on the relation between the spin configuration and the properties of the MOF. The ground state is found to be antiferromagnetic, with an equilibrium volume of 1554.70 Å3. The transition pressure of the pressure-induced large-pore-to-narrow-pore phase transition is calculated to be 82 MPa and 124 MPa for systems with ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic chains, respectively. For a mixed system, the transition pressure is found to be a weighted average of the ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic transition pressures. Mapping DFT energies onto a simple-spin Hamiltonian shows both the intra- and inter-chain coupling to be antiferromagnetic, with the latter coupling constant being two orders of magnitude smaller than the former, suggesting the MIL-47(V) to present quasi-1D behavior. The electronic structure of the different spin configurations is investigated and it shows that the band gap position varies strongly with the spin configuration. The valence and conduction bands show a clear V d-character. In addition, these bands are flat in directions orthogonal to VO6 chains, while showing dispersion along the the direction of the VO6 chains, similar as for other quasi-1D materials. PMID:25383285

    Metal or metal oxides/carbon nanocomposites with hierarchical superstructures have become one of the most promising functional materials in sensor, catalysis, energy conversion, etc. In this work, novel hierarchical Fe3O4/carbon superstructures have been fabricated based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs)-derived method. Three kinds of Fe-MOFs (MIL-88A) with different morphologies were prepared beforehand as templates, and then pyrolyzed to fabricate the corresponding novel hierarchical Fe3O4/carbon superstructures. The systematic studies on the thermal decomposition process of the three kinds of MIL-88A and the effect of template morphology on the products were carried out in detail. Scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy, X-ray powder diffraction, X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and thermal analysis were employed to investigate the hierarchical Fe3O4/carbon superstructures. Based on these resulted hierarchical Fe3O4/carbon superstructures, a novel and sensitive nonenzymatic N-acetyl cysteine sensor was developed. The porous and hierarchical superstructures and large surface area of the as-formed Fe3O4/carbon superstructures eventually contributed to the good electrocatalytic activity of the prepared sensor towards the oxidation of N-acetyl cysteine. The proposed preparation method of the hierarchical Fe3O4/carbon superstructures is simple, efficient, cheap and easy to mass production. It might open up a new way for hierarchical superstructures preparation.

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

The hierarchical porous architecture, embedded Fe nanoparticles, and nitrogen decoration endow this composite with a superior oxygen reduction activity.

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

    2012-12-01

    As with the other nakhlites, MIL 090032 contains iddingsite-like alteration veins in the olivine phenocrysts that reportedly originated on Mars[1]. These 'iddingsite' veins have been analysed in a number of the nakhlite meteorites[2], and the presence of hydrous silicate gel, smectite clays, siderite, Fe-oxides, gypsum and carbonate have been reported. The presence and proportion of these phases in the different nakhlites appears to relate to the composition and concentration of the martian brine that flowed through each, thus supporting the theory that the nakhlite secondary alteration phases were produced by an evaporation sequence on the surface of Mars[3]. We analyzed these martian 'iddingsite' veins in MIL 090032 with the aim of placing it and its three paired meteorites within the nakhlite alteration sequence. By expanding our knowledge of this alteration sequence, we will gain extra insight into the conditions on the martian surface at the time these 'iddingsite' veins formed (<1.3 Ga). We utilized the 80-300 kV aberration-corrected FEI Titan (Scanning) Transmission Electron Microscope (S-TEM) system at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory to analyse a ~15×8μm Focused Ion Beam (FIB) section of an 'iddingsite' vein in MIL 090032. To allow the electrons to be transmitted through the FIB section, it was milled down to ~150 nm thickness. Our initial TEM data indicate this FIB section contains hydrous amorphous silicate gel towards the center, with areas of phyllosilicate (possibly nontronite) interspersed within this central zone. Towards the outer edge of the vein jarosite and then gypsum sulfates were present. At the very edge only partially broken down olivine was observed. The presence of phyllosilicate and silicate gel in this vein suggests the 'iddingsite' in MIL 090032 was produced by water-rich brine, and the abundance of sulfates suggests the brine was enriched in sulfur. This assemblage of minerals is most in line with that of the 'iddingsite

    The uptake and adsorption enthalpy of carbon dioxide at 0.2 bar have been studied in three different topical porous MOF samples, HKUST-1, UiO-66(Zr), and MIL-100(Fe), after having been pre-equilibrated under different relative humidities (3, 10, 20, 40%) of water vapor. If in the case of microporous UiO-66, CO(2) uptake remained similar whatever the relative humidity, and correlations were difficult for microporous HKUST-1 due to its relative instability toward water vapor. In the case of MIL-100(Fe), a remarkable 5-fold increase in CO(2) uptake was observed with increasing RH, up to 105 mg g(-1) CO(2) at 40% RH, in parallel with a large decrease in enthalpy measured. Cycling measurements show slight differences for the initial three cycles and complete reversibility with further cycles. These results suggest an enhanced solubility of CO(2) in the water-filled mesopores of MIL-100(Fe).

  8. Aqueous corrosion of olivine in the Mars meteorite Miller Range (MIL) 03346 during Antarctic weathering: Implications for water on Mars

    Several nakhlites (clinopyroxenite meteorites from Mars) contain olivine phenocrysts with corrosion features identical in size, shape and distribution to the smaller etch-pits of well-characterized weathered terrestrial olivine. Miller Range (MIL) 03346 is an Antarctic nakhlite find, recovered after long exposure to Antarctic conditions. The distribution of discrete olivine etch-pits almost exclusively within a few hundred microns of allocation MIL 03346,171's documentably exposed surface suggests that they formed by terrestrial weathering in Antarctica. The small size of olivine etch-pits in MIL 03346,171 relative to commonly much larger etch-pits in even incipiently weathered terrestrial examples suggests that the duration of its exposure to weathering conditions was short, or the weathering conditions to which it was exposed did not favor olivine corrosion (in the form of etch-pit formation), or both. Time-scales for the formation of etch-pits, estimated from experimentally determined dissolution rates of olivine over a range of pHs, are comparable to the measured terrestrial age of the meteorite and short relative to the time available for possible similar corrosion on Mars. Etch-pits of the observed size on MIL 03346 olivine phenocrysts would be relatively easy to form supraglacially under brief episodic acidic Antarctic conditions, but the terrestrial age of MIL 03346 is long enough that its olivine might have been weathered to the observed state by englacial films of alkaline Antarctic water. The paucity of similar etch-pits in olivine from the interior of MIL 03346 suggests that olivine in this Mars meteorite was exposed to even less aqueous alteration after iddingsitization during its 1.3 billion years on Mars than its exterior was subjected to during its Pleistocene-Holocene exposure to Antarctic weathering conditions.

    2011-01-01

    MIL 090001 is a large (greater than 6 kg) CV chondrite from the reduced subgroup (CV(sub red)) that was recovered during the 2009-2010 ANSMET field season [1]. The CV(sub red) subgroup meteorites retain primitive characteristics and have escaped the Na and Fe meta-somatism that affected the oxidized (CV(sub ox)) subgroups. MIL 090001 is, however, reported to be altered [1], and thus a major objective of this study is to characterize its mineralogy and petrography and the extent of the alteration.

    1980-01-01

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

    To improve the photocatalytic efficiency of chromium-based metal-organic framework (MIL-101) photocatalyst, Pd nanoparticles and reduced graphene oxide were used to modify the MIL-101 via a facile method. The resulting novel photocatalyst was characterized by UV-vis diffuse reflectance spectra (DRS), powder X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). It was indicated that the photocatalyst afforded high photocatalytic efficiency for degradation of two triphenylmethane dyes, brilliant green and acid fuchsin, under exposure to visible light irradiation. Cyclic experiments demonstrated that the photocatalyst showed good reusability and stability for the dye degradation.

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

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    1971-01-01

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

    The Handbook for the Space Environment Standard (MIL-STD-1809) is a companion document to the Standard. The Standard is necessarily a very concise document, so that the Handbook is intended to make its usage easier. The Handbook describes the sources of the environmental models cited in the Standard, as well as the usage of the models, and their limitations. Means for obtaining the cited models are given as well. With the exception of the space debris model, the Handbook covers only the natural space environment. The Handbook provides a general overview of the various components of the space environment and the generally accepted understanding of them at the current time. A bibliography is provided to aid in understanding the materials presented in the Handbook and Standard.

    1993-09-01

    The Small Explorer Data System (SEDS) relies heavily on new technologies in the electrical designs. Among the key technologies utilized are fiber optics. The effects of the harsh space radiation environment on these spacecraft components can be quite severe. This paper takes a preliminary look at the single event upset (SEU) data seen during the early portion of SAMPEX flight (launched in July 1992) versus the ground test predictions. The new technologies are addressed along with the error handling abilities of the fiber optic system (MIL-STD-1773). The predicted SAMPEX radiation environment is discussed as well as the methodology of SEU rate prediction utilizing both cosmic ray and proton concerns. A comparison of the flight data to ground test predictions is discussed along with information concerning the significance of where and when the SEUs have occurred.

  20. Reassessing the cooling rate and geologic setting of Martian meteorites MIL 03346 and NWA 817

    2016-06-01

    Lithium concentration and isotopic fractionation profiles across augite grains from two Martian meteorites - MIL 03346 and NWA 817 - were used to determine their thermal history and implications for their geologic setting. The iron-magnesium zoning and associated magnesium isotopic fractionation of olivine grains from NWA 817 were also measured and provide a separate estimate of the cooling rate. The observed correlation of concentration with isotopic fractionation provides the essential evidence that the zoning of these grains was in fact due to diffusion and thus can be used as a measure of their cooling rate. The diffusion rate of lithium in augite depends on the oxygen fugacity, which has to be taken into account when determining a cooling rate based on the lithium zoning. The Fe-Mg exchange in olivine is much less sensitive to oxygen fugacity, but it is significantly anisotropic and for this reason we determined the direction relative to crystallographic axes of the line along which the Fe-Mg zoning was measured. We found that the cooling rate of NWA 817 determined from the lithium zoning in augite grains and that based on the Fe-Mg zoning of olivines are in good agreement at an oxygen fugacity close to that of quartz-fayalite-magnetite oxygen buffer. The cooling rate of MIL 03346 was found to be resolvably faster than that of NWA 817 - of the order of 1 °C/h for the former and of the order of 0.2 °C/h for the latter. An important observation regarding the history of MIL 03346 and NWA 817 is that the lithium and Fe-Mg zoning are only observed where the augite or olivine is in contact with the mesostasis, which implies that they were already about 80% crystallized at the time diffusion began. The augite and olivine core compositions while very homogeneous are not in equilibrium with each other, which we interpret to imply that prior to the rapid cooling there must have been a protracted period of the order of years above the solidus, during which the much

    2015-03-01

    A novel and rapid spectrofluorometry method for the recognition of 6-mercaptopurine (6-MP) has been developed based on luminescent metal-organic frameworks Fe-MIL-88NH2 as fluorescent probe. The strong fluorescence of Fe-MIL-88NH2 at 430 nm could be quenched by 6-MP directly, and the Fe-MIL-88NH2 shows high selectivity for 6-MP compared to other thiol-containing amino acids such as homocysteine (Hcy), cysteine (Cys), glutathione (GSH), etc. Under optimal conditions, the relative fluorescence intensity was linearly proportional to the concentration of 6-MP in the range of 5-600 μM with the detection limit at 1.17 μM (S/N = 3). Furthermore, the present approach has been successfully applied to the determination of 6-MP in human serum samples. The possible fluorescence quenching mechanism has also been investigated, where it is revealed that the quenching was attributed to competition of absorption of the light source energy as well as electron transfer between Fe-MIL-88NH2 and 6-MP.

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

    Fluorescent metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have received great attention in sensing application. Here, we report the exploration of fluorescent MIL-53(Al) for highly selective and sensitive detection of Fe(3+) in aqueous solution. The cation exchange between Fe(3+) and the framework metal ion Al(3+) in MIL-53(Al) led to the quenching of the fluorescence of MIL-53(Al) due to the transformation of strong-fluorescent MIL-53(Al) to weak-fluorescent MIL-53(Fe), allowing highly selective and sensitive detection of Fe(3+) in aqueous solution with a linear range of 3-200 μM and a detection limit of 0.9 μM. No interferences from 0.8 M Na(+); 0.35 M K(+); 11 mM Cu(2+); 10 mM Ni(2+); 6 mM Ca(2+), Pb(2+), and Al(3+); 5.5 mM Mn(2+); 5 mM Co(2+) and Cr(3+); 4 mM Hg(2+), Cd(2+), Zn(2+), and Mg(2+); 3 mM Fe(2+); 0.8 M Cl(-); 60 mM NO2(-) and NO3(-); 10 mM HPO4(2-), H2PO4(-), SO3(2-), SO4(2-), and HCOO(-); 8 mM CO3(2-), HCO3(-), and C2O4(2-); and 5 mM CH3COO(-) were found for the detection of 150 μM Fe(3+). The possible mechanism for the quenching effect of Fe(3+) on the fluorescence of MIL-53(Al) was elucidated by inductively coupled plasma-mass spectrometry, X-ray diffraction spectrometry, and Fourier transform infrared spectrometry. The specific cation exchange behavior between Fe(3+) and the framework Al(3+) along with the excellent stability of MIL-53(Al) allows highly selective and sensitive detection of Fe(3+) in aqueous solution. The developed method was applied to the determination of Fe(3+) in human urine samples with the quantitative spike recoveries from 98.2% to 106.2%.

  9. Modified Spectral Fatigue Methods for S-N Curves With MIL-HDBK-5J Coefficients

    Irvine, Tom; Larsen, Curtis

    2016-01-01

    The rainflow method is used for counting fatigue cycles from a stress response time history, where the fatigue cycles are stress-reversals. The rainflow method allows the application of Palmgren-Miner's rule in order to assess the fatigue life of a structure subject to complex loading. The fatigue damage may also be calculated from a stress response power spectral density (PSD) using the semi-empirical Dirlik, Single Moment, Zhao-Baker and other spectral methods. These methods effectively assume that the PSD has a corresponding time history which is stationary with a normal distribution. This paper shows how the probability density function for rainflow stress cycles can be extracted from each of the spectral methods. This extraction allows for the application of the MIL-HDBK-5J fatigue coefficients in the cumulative damage summation. A numerical example is given in this paper for the stress response of a beam undergoing random base excitation, where the excitation is applied separately by a time history and by its corresponding PSD. The fatigue calculation is performed in the time domain, as well as in the frequency domain via the modified spectral methods. The result comparison shows that the modified spectral methods give comparable results to the time domain rainflow counting method.

    MIL 090657 meteorite (CR2.7) is one of the least altered primitive carbonaceous c hondrites [1]. This meteorite has amorphous silicates like GEMS (glass with embedded metal and sulfide), which are characteristically contained in cometary dust, in matrix [2,3] as with the Paris meteorite [4]. Three lithologies have been recognized; lithology-1 (L 1) dominated by submicron anhydrous silicates, lithology-2 (L2) by GEMS-like amorphous silicates and lithology-3 (L3) by phyllosilicates [2]. Organic materials are abundant in L 1 and L2 [2,3]. L 1 and L2 were further divided into sub-lithology respectively based on their textures and compositions [5]. These studies were performed by 2D SEM and TEM observations of sample surfaces and thin sections that are unable to reveal what constitute each lithology and how these lithologies are distributed and related to each other. This information will provide important insights into alteration and aggregation processes on asteroids and in the early solar nebula. In this study, MIL 090657 matrix was examined in 3D using two types of X-ray tomography; DET (dual-energy tomography) [6] and SIXM (scanning-imaging X-ray microscopy) [7]. Mineral phases can be discriminated based on absorption contrasts at two different X-ray energies in DET. In SIXM, materials composed of light elements such as water or organic materials can be identified based on phase and absorption contrasts. By combining these methods, we can discriminate not only organic materials from voids but also hydrous alteration products, such as hydrated silicates and carbonates, from anhydrous minerals [8]. In this study, we first observed cross sections of MIL 090657 matrix fragments C1 00 mm) in detail using FE-SEM/ EDS. Based on the results, three house-shaped samples (3 0 -50 mm) were extracted from L 1, L2 and their boundary (H1, H3 and H5, respectively) using FIB. 3D imaging of these samples were conducted at BL47XU of SPring-8, a synchrotron radiation facility, with

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

    The energy-storage capacities of a series of water-stable porous metal-organic frameworks, based on high-valence metal cations (Al(3+) , Fe(3+) , Cr(3+) , Ti(4+) , Zr(4+) ) and polycarboxylate linkers, were evaluated under the typical conditions of seasonal energy-storage devices. The results showed that the microporous hydrophilic Al-dicarboxylate MIL-160(Al) exhibited one of the best performances. To assess the properties of this material for space-heating applications on a laboratory pilot scale with an open reactor, a new synthetic route involving safer, greener conditions was developed. This led to the production of MIL-160(Al) on a 400 g scale, before the material was shaped into pellets through a wet-granulation method. The material exhibited a very high energy-storage capacity for a physical-sorption material (343 Wh kg(-1) ), which is in full agreement with the predicted value.

  14. A single-supply, monolithic, MIL-STD-1553 transceiver implemented in BiCMOS wafer fabrication technology

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Albrecht, Thomas L.; Molinari, Lou

    An integrated circuit has been designed for use as a single supply, MIL-STD-1553 transceiver using BiCMOS technology. Use of the BiCMOS fabrication process has advantages over both Bipolar and CMOS technologies. These advantages include: reduced standby current drain, increased flexibility in mating the transceiver to various remote terminals, increased control over output amplitude and rise/fall times, easier methods for adjusting filter response and residual voltage, and reduced chip size (over a CMOS transceiver). Development of this monolithic transceiver opens the door to future advances in remote terminal design. By combining the current driving capacity of Bipolar with the digital design capability of CMOS, the next probable step in the progression of MIL-STD-1553 technology would be a fully monolithic remote terminal. This device would combine a transceiver with the encoder/decoder and protocol logic on a single semiconductor device.

    The Small Explorer Data System (SEDS) is a spaceflight command and data handling system for the small explorer (SMEX) program at Goddard Space Flight Center (GSFC). A key component in this system is the SEDS MIL-STD-1773 Fiber Optic Multiplexed Data Bus. The 1773 bus provides a means of passing telemetry and commands between spacecraft subsystems. This bus is currently being considered for additional spaceflight programs inside and outside of the NASA realm. The SEDS 1773 bus uses integrated optoelectronics as part of its electrical subsystem (or user) to optical interface. Generic proton and heavy ion test results have been previously reported. Herein is presented proton test results for continuing this investigation under actual subsystem interface conditions (MIL-STD-1773) as well as for generic devices using the proton test facilities at University of California, Davis (UCD). This testing was undertaken as a joint effort between NASA/GSFC and the Naval Research Laboratories (NRL).

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

    Mesoporous hollow α-Fe2O3 bricks were synthesized via a hydrothermal method to create a precursor MIL-100(Fe) and a subsequent calcination process was applied to prepare the Fe2O3 phase. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) results showed the morphology of hollow α-Fe2O3 bricks which inherited from the MIL-100(Fe) template. The catalytic activities of hollow α-Fe2O3 bricks for CO oxidation are studied in this work. Due to better low temperature reduction behavior, mesoporous hollow α-Fe2O3 bricks obtained at calcination temperature of 430 °C displayed high catalytic activity and excellent stability with a complete CO conversion temperature (T100) of 255 °C.

    Matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF-MS) has been proven as a useful and advanced technique in the identification of polymers and proteins. However, MALDI-TOF-MS still has the unavoidable drawback of self-signal interference with traditional organic matrices, which could suppress and overlap with the analyte signals in the low-mass region. In this work, MIL-101(Cr), a kind of metal-organic frameworks which possess high molecular weight, π-conjugated 3-D structure, coordinately unsaturated chromium sites (CUS) and strong absorption in the UV range, was employed to replace traditional organic matrices, and it was found that MIL-101(Cr) can dramatically eliminate the background peaks, showing high signal-to-noise level in the analysis of small molecules. As proof-of-concept, quercetin, daidzein, genistein and naringenin, members of flavonol family which widely exists in food and natural products, were successfully determined by utilizing MIL-101(Cr) as the surface-assisted matrix, and the detection of quercetin was sensitive with good salt tolerance and reproducibility. Under optimal conditions, the mass peak intensity exhibited good linear relationships in the range from 0.25µg/mL-7.00µg/mL for quercetin (R(2)=0.996) with detection limit 2.11ng/mL (3σ/k), making the identification of quercetin in sophora japonica successfully. With this strategy we have demonstrated the potentiality of MIL-101(Cr) nanomaterials as MALDI-MS matrix for the detection of small molecules.

    A series of amino-functionalized MIL-53 with different metals as nodes has been synthesized. By determining adsorption properties and spectroscopic characterization, we unequivocally show that the interaction between the amines of the organic linker and bridging μ(2)-OH of the inorganic scaffold modulates metal organic framework (MOF) flexibility. The strength of the interaction has been found to correlate with the electropositivity of the metal.

    Size exclusion chromatography was used to determine the chemical degradation of MIL-L-27502 oil samples from a gas turbine engine test run at a bulk oil temperature of 216 C. Results revealed a progressive loss of primary ester and additive depletion and the formation of higher molecular weight products with time. The high molecular weight products absorbed strongly in the ultraviolet indicating the presence of chromophoric groups.

    A standard metal-organic framework, NH2-MIL-101 based on chromium has been synthesized. For the purpose of offering more binding sites for CO2, post-synthetic modification of tetraethylenepentamine (TEPA) was conducted by using a wet impregnation method. With the aim of better understanding the thermodynamics and mechanisms of CO2 adsorption, molecular dynamics (MD) simulations have been used for structures optimization and adsorption kinetics of NH2-MIL-101/TEPA adsorbents, and the CO2 adsorption capacity with different TEPA loadings was simulated by the Monte Carlo (MC) method. Results confirmed that TEPA was successfully grafted on the coordinative unsaturated metal centers. At 1 bar and 298 K, NH2-MIL-101 combined with 50 wt% TEPA exhibited a CO2 uptake of 3.1 mmol/g-sorb. Under low loading of TEPA, the coordinative unsaturated metal centers made a relatively big contribution to CO2 adsorption. With more TEPA incorporated, the CO2 binding affinity was enhanced due to the existence of abundant amine groups. On the basis of both experimental and simulation analysis, this synthesized amine-grafted sorbent with excellent CO2 capture performance is an ideal material for greenhouse gas control.

    The mechanism and products of the structural collapse of the metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) UiO-66, MIL-140B and MIL-140C upon ball-milling are investigated through solid state 13C NMR and pair distribution function (PDF) studies, finding amorphization to proceed by the breaking of a fraction of metal-ligand bonding in each case. The amorphous products contain inorganic-organic bonding motifs reminiscent of the crystalline phases. Whilst the inorganic Zr6O4(OH)4 clusters of UiO-66 remain intact upon structural collapse, the ZrO backbone of the MIL-140 frameworks undergoes substantial distortion. Density functional theory calculations have been performed to investigate defective models of MIL-140B and show, through comparison of calculated and experimental 13C NMR spectra, that amorphization and defects in the materials are linked.

    A robust gallium carboxylate Ga(OH)(btec)·0.5H2O (MIL-61) was synthesized under mild hydrothermal conditions and selected as the parent MOF to prepare Eu-MIL-61 by post-synthetic modification due to the uncoordinated carbonyl group of the ligand (pyromellitic acid (H4btec)). The firm framework, permanent porosity, and non-coordinated sites make MIL-61 a good scaffold for immobilizing and sensitizing Eu(3+). The products showed excellent luminescence and, more significantly, Eu-MIL-61 showed excellent selectivity with photoluminescence enhancement, fast response time, and low detection limit for Ag(+) ions in the aqueous solutions. In addition, the frameworks were not susceptible to the acid-base property of solutions, which can be further applied to monitor the concentration of Ag(+) in several daily water samples.

    Ga-MIL-53 is a metal-organic framework (MOF) that exhibits a "breathing effect," in which the pore size and overall MOF topology can be influenced by temperature, pressure, and host-guest interactions. The phase control afforded by this flexible framework renders Ga-MIL-53 a promising material for guest storage and sensing applications. In this work, the structure and behavior of four Ga-MIL-53 phases (as, ht, enp and lt), along with CO2 adsorbed within Ga-MIL-53 at various loading levels, has been investigated using (69/71)Ga solid-state NMR (SSNMR) experiments at 21.1T and 9.4T. (69/71)Ga SSNMR spectra are observed to be very sensitive to distortions in the octahedral GaO6 secondary building units within Ga-MIL-53; by extension, Ga NMR parameters are indicative of the particular crystallographic phase of Ga-MIL-53. The evolution of Ga NMR parameters with CO2 loading levels in Ga-MIL-53 reveals that the specific CO2 loading level offers a profound degree of control over the MOF phase, and the data also suggests that a re-entrant phase transition is present. Adsorption of various organic compounds within Ga-MIL-53 has been investigated using a combination of thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA), powder X-ray diffraction (pXRD) and (69/71)Ga SSNMR experiments. Notably, pXRD experiments reveal that guest adsorption and host-guest interactions trigger unambiguous changes in the long-range structure of Ga-MIL-53, while (69/71)Ga SSNMR parameters yield valuable information regarding the effect of the organic adsorbates on the local GaO6 environments. This approach shows promise for the ultra-wideline investigation of other quadrupolar metal nuclei in MIL-53 (e.g., In-MIL-53) and MOFs in general, particularly in regards to adsorption-related applications.

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

    Metal-organic framework material has been paid more attention because of its good physical and chemical properties. Nanoscale zero valent iron is also in the center of concern recently. Combination of their merits will give impressive results. Present study firstly synthesized a new magnetic nanomaterial nano-scale zero valent iron-functionalized metal-organic framworks MIL-101 (Fe@MIL-101) by co-precipitation method. The morphology and structure of the as-prepared Fe@MIL-101 were characterized by transmission electron microscopy and X-ray diffraction, etc. The experimental results showed that Fe@MIL-101 earned good adsorption ability to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The limits of detection of developed magnetic solid phase extraction were all below 0.064μgL(-1) and precision can be expressed as relative standard deviation (RSD, %) and which was better than 4.4% (n=6). The real water analysis indicated that the spiked recoveries were satisfied, and Fe@MIL-101 earned excellent reusability. All these demonstrated that Fe@MIL-101 exhibited excellent adsorption capability to polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and would be a good adsorbent for development of new monitoring methods for environmental pollutants.

  7. Processing, properties, and ballistic performance of titanium-aluminum titanium metal-intermetallic laminate (MIL) composites

    2000-10-01

    A systematic investigation into the processing of Ti-Al3Ti metal-intermetallic laminate (MIL) composites from elemental titanium and aluminum foils in open air by a novel one step technique, and subsequent characterization, physical, mechanical and ballistic testing was carried out. Al3Ti is the only intermetallic phase to form, and no oxides or other phases are formed. Composites with Ti volume fractions of ˜0, 14, 20, 35, and 57 percent can be processed consistently, with measured density agreeing well with calculated density. The intermetallic reaction occurs in two parts that are linear with respect to Al3Ti growth with time: oxide controlled diffusion of Al, and the order of magnitude faster chemical reaction that occurs after the oxide layer breaks down and transient liquid phases are formed. A reaction model based on the production of Al3Ti spheroids that are ejected from the Ti reaction surface has been developed, and is titled reactive foil sintering. Quasi-static and dynamic compression tests resulted in maximum yield stresses for the 20Ti composite, and end-confined quasi-static and dynamic compression tests, tension tests, and 3-point bend tests resulted in maximum yield stresses and bending loads for the 35Ti composite. Maximum yield stresses occurred in specimens tested with layers parallel to the load. Arrester orientation R-curve testing was completed for the 14Ti composite under large-scale bridging conditions, with initiation toughness values obtained for 20Ti and 35Ti which developed cracks in the intermetallic layer growing perpendicular to the load axis. Divider orientation R-curves were obtained, with the 20Ti and 35Ti curves closely approaching calculated steady-state toughness values. Ballistics testing of bonded Ti, bonded Ti-Al, 5Ti, 14Ti, 35Ti, 57Ti, and Al3Ti at projectile velocities of 500--700 m/s resulted in the 14Ti and 35Ti having the best ballistic performance based on mass efficiency. Ballistics testing of 14Ti, 20Ti, and 35Ti

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

    MIL-68(Al) as a metal-organic framework (MOF) was synthesized and characterized by different techniques such as SEM, BET, FTIR, and XRD analysis. This material was then applied for simulations removal of malachite green (MG) and methylene blue (MB) dyes from aqueous solutions using second order derivative spectrophotometric method (SODS) which was applied to resolve the overlap between the spectra of these dyes. The dependency of dyes removal efficiency in binary solutions was examined and optimized toward various parameters including initial dye concentration, pH of the solution, adsorbent dosage and ultrasonic contact time using central composite design (CCD) under response surface methodology (RSM) approach. The optimized experimental conditions were set as pH 7.78, contact time 5 min, initial MB concentration 22 mg L- 1, initial MG concentration 12 mg L- 1 and adsorbent dosage 0.0055 g. The equilibrium data was fitted to isotherm models such as Langmuir, Freundlich and Tempkin and the results revealed the suitability of the Langmuir model. The maximum adsorption capacity of 666.67 and 153.85 mg g- 1 was obtained for MB and MG removal respectively. Kinetics data fitting to pseudo-first order, pseudo-second order and Elovich models confirmed the applicability of pseudo-second order kinetic model for description of the mechanism and adsorption rate. Dye-loaded MIL-68(Al) can be easily regenerated using methanol and applied for three frequent sorption/desorption cycles with high performance. The impact of ionic strength on removal percentage of both dyes in binary mixture was studied by using NaCl and KCl soluble salts at different concentrations. According to our findings, only small dosage of the proposed MOF is considerably capable to remove large amounts of dyes at room temperature and in very short time that is a big advantage of MIL-68(Al) as a promising adsorbent for adsorptive removal processes.

    In this study, oxygen selectivity in metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) at exceptionally high temperatures originally predicted by Density Functional Theory (DFT) and Grand Canonical Monte Carlo (GCMC) modeling is now confirmed by synthesis, sorption metal center access, in particular Sc and Fe. Based on DFT M-O2 binding energies, we chose the large pored MIL-100 framework for metal center access, in particular Sc and Fe. Both resulted in preferential O2 and N2 gas uptake at temperatures ranging from 77 K to ambient temperatures (258 K, 298 K and 313 K).

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

    Here we describe a highly porous metal-organic framework MIL-100(Fe), which is initially used as an arsenate adsorbent in water. An appropriate mesoporous size allows AsO4(3-) to enter unrestrained and then be captured successfully, furthermore resulting in the damage of long-range order of uniform mesopores. Moreover, the porous framework could also make AsO4(3-) be reversibly desorbed without structural changes and the long-range order of mesopores be recovered again.

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

    2015-10-01

    The research presented in this paper explored the modification and application of a metal-organic framework, MIL-101, with nonionic surfactant-Triton X-114 in dispersive solid-phase extraction for the preconcentration of four endocrine disrupting chemicals (estrone, 17α-ethynylestradiol, estriol and diethylstilbestrol) from environmental water samples. Triton X-114 molecules could be adsorbed by the hydrophobic surface of the MIL-101 crystals, and thus improved the dispersibility of MIL-101 in aqueous solution by serving as a hydrophilic coating. Cloud point phase separation from Triton X-114 accelerated the separation of extracts from the aqueous matrix. The proposed method combines the favorable attributes of strong adsorption capacity resulting from the porous structure of MIL-101 and self-assembly of Triton X-114 molecules. Post-extraction derivatization using N-methyl-N-(trimethylsilyl)trifluoroacetamide was employed to facilitate the quantitative determination of the extracts by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The main factors affecting the preparation of modified MIL-101, and extraction of the analytes, such as the amount of surfactant, the ultrasonic and vortex durations, solution pH and desorption conditions, were investigated in detail. Under the optimized conditions, the present method yielded low limits of detection (0.006-0.023 ng/mL), good linearity from 0.09 to 45 ng/mL (coefficients of determination higher than 0.9980) and acceptable precision (relative standard deviations of 2.2-13%). The surface modified MIL-101 was demonstrated to be effective for the extraction of the selected estrogens from aqueous samples, giving rise to markedly improved extraction performance compared to the unmodified MIL-101.

    Herein, we present a novel strategy based on a "turn-on" fluorescence system made up of metal-organic frameworks Fe-MIL-88 and H2O2 for detecting biothiols in human serum. The nonfluorescent Fe-MIL-88 gives weak fluorescence in the presence of H2O2. Interestingly, it was found that biothiols such as glutathione (GSH), cysteine (Cys) or homocysteine (Hcy) could induce fluorescence turn-on of the Fe-MIL-88/H2O2 system. Under optimal conditions, the relative fluorescence intensity exhibited a good linear relationship in the range from 50 nM-10 μM for GSH (r = 0.994), 50 nM-10 μM for Cys (r = 0.990), and 50 nM-10 μM (r = 0.992) for Hcy; the detection limits of GSH, Cys and Hcy were 30 nM, 40 nM, and 40 nM respectively. Mechanism investigation reveals that biothiols could associate with Fe-MIL-88 via hydrogen bonding and electrostatic interaction followed by redox reaction between biothiols and Fe(3+) present in the Fe-MIL-88, Fe(3+) was thus reduced to Fe(2+), and then Fe(2+) could efficiently catalyze the decomposition of H2O2 to yield ˙OH radicals through the Fenton reaction. Besides, biothiols were able to reduce H2O2 to produce ˙OH radicals directly. Thus the Fe-MIL-88 as well as biothiols could cooperatively contribute to the activation of H2O2 to generate higher amounts of ˙OH radicals, which in turn oxidize the free ligand terephthalic acid (BDC) outside or within the Fe-MIL-88 structure to strongly fluorescent hydroxylated terephthalic acid (OHBDC), thereby turning on the fluorescence.

  16. MHC2MIL: a novel multiple instance learning based method for MHC-II peptide binding prediction by considering peptide flanking region and residue positions

    PubMed Central

    2014-01-01

    Background Computational prediction of major histocompatibility complex class II (MHC-II) binding peptides can assist researchers in understanding the mechanism of immune systems and developing peptide based vaccines. Although many computational methods have been proposed, the performance of these methods are far from satisfactory. The difficulty of MHC-II peptide binding prediction comes mainly from the large length variation of binding peptides. Methods We develop a novel multiple instance learning based method called MHC2MIL, in order to predict MHC-II binding peptides. We deem each peptide in MHC2MIL as a bag, and some substrings of the peptide as the instances in the bag. Unlike previous multiple instance learning based methods that consider only instances of fixed length 9 (9 amino acids), MHC2MIL is able to deal with instances of both lengths of 9 and 11 (11 amino acids), simultaneously. As such, MHC2MIL incorporates important information in the peptide flanking region. For measuring the distances between different instances, furthermore, MHC2MIL explicitly highlights the amino acids in some important positions. Results Experimental results on a benchmark dataset have shown that, the performance of MHC2MIL is significantly improved by considering the instances of both 9 and 11 amino acids, as well as by emphasizing amino acids at key positions in the instance. The results are consistent with those reported in the literature on MHC-II peptide binding. In addition to five important positions (1, 4, 6, 7 and 9) for HLA(human leukocyte antigen, the name of MHC in Humans) DR peptide binding, we also find that position 2 may play some roles in the binding process. By using 5-fold cross validation on the benchmark dataset, MHC2MIL outperforms two state-of-the-art methods of MHC2SK and NN-align with being statistically significant, on 12 HLA DP and DQ molecules. In addition, it achieves comparable performance with MHC2SK and NN-align on 14 HLA DR molecules. MHC2MIL

    M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala) is a fusion protein comprising melittin genetically linked to a mutant human interleukin 2((88)Arg, (125)Ala). In this study, we constructed an expression system of M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala) in Pichia pastoris: GS115/pPICZα A/M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala), and achieved the high-level expression of the fusion protein. The maximum yield of the fusion protein M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala) reached up to 814.5mg/L, higher than the system in Escherichiacoli. The fusion protein was purified by means of ammonium sulfate fractionation, dialysis and nickel ion affinity chromatography. The molecular weight of the fusion protein is about 26kDa, conforming the theoretical value. And M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala) possesses strong antigen-specificity by Western blot detection. Bioassay results indicated that the fusion protein could directly inhibit the growth of human ovarian cancer SKOV3 cells and Hela cells in vitro. This study provides an alternative strategy for large-scale production of bioactive M-IL-2((88)Arg, (125)Ala) using P. pastoris as an expression host and paves the way to clinical practice.

    A layerlike MOF (MIL-124, orGa2(OH)4(C9O6H4)) has been prepared and chosen as a parent compound to encapsulate Eu(3+) cations by one uncoordinated carbonyl group in its pores. The Eu(3+)-incorporated sample (Eu(3+)@MIL-124) is fully characterized, which shows excellent luminescence and good fluorescence stability in water or other organic solvents. Subsequently, we choose Eu(3+)@MIL-124 as sensitive probe for sensing metal ions, anions, and organic small molecules because of its robust framework. Studying of the luminescence properties reveals that the complex Eu(3+)@MIL-124 was developed as a highly selective and sensitive probe for detection of Fe(3+) (detection limit, 0.28 μM) and Fe(2+) ions through fluorescence quenching of Eu(3+) and MOF over other metal ions. In connection to this, a probable sensing mechanism was also discussed in this paper. In addition, when Eu(3+)@MIL-124 was immersed in the different anions solutions and organic solvents, it also shows highly selective for Cr2O7(2-)(detection limit, 0.15 μM)and acetone. Remarkably, it is the first Eu-doped MOF to exhibit an excellent ability for the detection of Fe(3+) and Fe(2+) in an aqueous environment without any structural disintegration of the framework.

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

    We present here a simple solvothermal method to fabricate metal-organic framework NH2-MIL-53(Al) crystals with controllable size and morphology just by altering the ratio of water in the DMF-water mixed solvent system without the addition of any surfactants or capping agents. With increasing the volume ratio of water in the mixed solvents, a series of NH2-MIL-53(Al) crystals with different sizes and morphologies were synthesized. The average size of the smallest crystal is 76 ± 20 nm, which provides us a simple and environmentally friendly way to prepare nanoscale MOFs. The largest BET surface area of these samples is 1882 m(2) g(-1) that is mainly contributed by its micropore surface area, and its corresponding micropore volume is 0.83 cm(3) g(-1), which have greatly extended its application in the fields of gas adsorption and postsynthetic modification. All these samples were characterized by SEM, XRD, N2 adsorption/desorption, TGA and FT-IR. Then a mechanism for the impact of the water ratio on the crystal size and morphology is presented and discussed.

    In this study, a metal-organic framework material, MIL-101, used as a micro-solid-phase extraction (μ-SPE) sorbent for efficient enrichment of five organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), including α-HCH, Aldrin, α-Chlordane, Dieldrin and p,p'-DDD from water samples, followed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, is reported. This study demonstrated a new application of MIL-101 using μ-SPE, an advantage of the latter being its ability to process complex aqueous matrices, due to the protection of the sorbent afforded by the hollow fiber membrane bag. Key factors affecting extraction efficiency were studied, including elution solvent, extraction and desorption time. Under the optimal extraction conditions, the calibration plots were linear from 0.05 to 50 ng/mL for α-HCH and p,p'-DDD, and 0.1 to 50 ng/mL for the other three analytes. The limits of detection were between 0.0025 and 0.016 ng/mL. The relative recoveries of the OCPs spiked into real water samples (at 5 ng/mL of each analyte) ranged from 87.6 to 98.6% with relative standard deviations of <10%.

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

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

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

    The Ni/NiO{sub x} particles were in situ photodeposited on MIL-101 metal organic frameworks as catalysts for boosting H{sub 2} generation from Erythrosin B dye sensitization under visible-light irradiation. The highest H{sub 2} production rate of 125 μmol h{sup −1} was achieved from the system containing 5 wt. % Ni-loaded MIL-101 (20 mg) and 30 mg Erythrosin B dye. Moreover, the Ni/NiO{sub x} catalysts show excellent stability for long-term photocatalytic reaction. The enhancement on H{sub 2} generation is attributed to the efficient charge transfer from photoexcited dye to the Ni catalyst via MIL-101. Our results demonstrate that the economical Ni/NiO{sub x} particles are durable and active catalysts for photocatalytic H{sub 2} generation.

    Metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-100(Fe) with well-defined thickness was homogenously coated onto the outer surface of magnetic microparticles via a liquid-phase epitaxy method. The as-synthesized MIL-100(Fe) was used as stationary phase for high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and separations of two groups of mixed aromatic hydrocarbons (toluene, styrene and p-xylene; acetanilide, 2-nirtoaniline and 1-naphthylamine) using methanol/water as mobile phase were performed to evaluate its performance. Increasing water content of the mobile phase composition can greatly improve the separations on the expense of a longer elution time. Stepwise elution significantly shortens the elution time of acetanilide, 2-nirtoaniline and 1-naphthylamine mixtures, while still achieving a baseline separation. Combining the experimental results and in-depth modeling using a recently developed chromatographic software (ChromX), adsorption equilibrium parameters, including the affinities and maximum capacities, for each analyte toward the MIL-100(Fe) are obtained. In addition, the pore diffusivity of aromatic hydrocarbons within MIL-100(Fe) was determined to be 5×10(-12)m(2)s(-1). While the affinities of MIL-100(Fe) toward the analyte molecules differs much, the maximum capacities of the analytes are in a narrow range with q*MOFmax,toluene=3.55molL(-1), q*MOFmax,styrene or p-xylene=3.53molL(-1), and q*MOFmax,anilines=3.12molL(-1) corresponding to approximately 842 toluene and 838 styrene or p-xylene, and 740 aniline molecules per MIL-100(Fe) unit cell, respectively.

    Hsieh, Josephine Ordonez

    Mixed matrix membranes (MMMs) are hybrid materials consisting of two phases: an inorganic nanoscale particle as the discrete phase, and a polymeric material as the continuous phase. The incorporation of inorganic particles into a polymer can improve a membrane's overall separation performance. MMMs incorporating metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have exhibited promising gas separation performance. MOFs are inorganic-organic crystals constructed from metal ions that are linked by polydentate ligands. Zeolitic imidazolate frameworks (ZIFs) are a sub-class of MOFs that uses imidazole analogues as ligands. In these studies, the MOF MIL-53 and ZIF-8 were successfully synthesized and characterized by a battery of analytical techniques including XRD, FTIR, TGA, N2 adsorption, and SEM, and were incorporated into MMMs with Matrimid® polymer. In chapter 1, MIL-53/Matrimid® MMMs containing MIL-53-ht (open-pore form) were fabricated, characterized and obtained permeability values higher than Matrimid®. Selectivities decreased for the gas pairs of O2/N2, H2/O2, H2/CO2, and H2/N2. However, slight enhancement of the CO2/CH4 selectivity was observed for the MIL-53-ht/Matrimid® compared to that of Matrimid ®. The MIL-53-as/Matrimid® MMM also showed an increase in permeability as well as an increase in selectivity for the gas pairs H2/O2, CO2/CH4, H 2/CH4, and H2/N2. The MIL-53-lt/Matrimid ® MMM showed that it does not retain its closed-pore form in the MMM due to chloroform solvent opening the pores and eventually polymer confinement of the MIL 53 framework in the MMM. In chapter 2, easy synthesis and fabrication of the MIL-53 MOF membrane was realized using a seeded growth method with a commercially available alumina TLC plate. The MOF membrane had a well-intergrown and dense layer of MIL-53 crystals on the surface of the alumina substrate. The MIL-53 crystals were also converted to the MIL-53-lt (closed-pore form) after heating at 330 °C and cooling to room temperature

The overpotential at 10 mA cm-2 is 0.39 V and the Tafel slope is 72.9 mV dec-1, which is comparable to that of the as-synthesized RuO2. The satisfactory results are attributed to the presence of pyridine N, Co3O4, the enlarged surface area and the micropore structures after calcination.In this work, we synthesized high-performance electrocatalysts for oxygen evolution reaction (OER) by one-step carbonization of cobalt(Co)-doped NH2-MIL-53(Fe) with different molar ratios between Fe and Co.

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

    The development of catalysts for selective catalytic reduction (SCR) reactions that are highly active at low temperatures and show good resistance to SO2 and H2O is still a challenge. In this study, we have designed and developed a high-performance SCR catalyst based on nano-sized ceria encapsulated inside the pores of MIL-100(Fe) that combines excellent catalytic power with a metal organic framework architecture synthesized by the impregnation method (IM). Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed the encapsulation of ceria in the cavities of MIL-100(Fe). The prepared IM-CeO2/MIL-100(Fe) catalyst shows improved catalytic activity both at low temperatures and throughout a wide temperature window. The temperature window for 90% NOx conversion ranges from 196 to 300°C. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and in situ diffuse reflectance infrared Fourier transform spectroscopy (DRIFT) analysis indicated that the nano-sized ceria encapsulated inside MIL-100(Fe) promotes the production of chemisorbed oxygen on the catalyst surface, which greatly enhances the formation of the NO2 species responsible for fast SCR reactions.

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

    A metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-101 was impregnated with phosphotungstic acid (PWA) and used as an adsorbent in liquid phase adsorption of nitrogen-containing compounds (NCCs) from a model fuel. The model fuel contained one sulfur-containing compound (SCC), benzothiophene (BT); one basic NCC, quinoline (QUI); and one neutral NCC, indole (IND). In both MIL-101 and PWA-impregnated MIL-101s, NCC adsorption selectivity was very high compared to the SCC selectivity. Additionally, the adsorption capacity of basic QUI increased by 20% with only 1% PWA impregnation in MIL-101. The adsorption of a neutral compound, IND, was slightly reduced with PWA impregnation in the MOF. The adsorption capacity/selectivity can be remarkably improved by a slight modification of MOFs, for example, to impart acidity. The MOF impregnated with PWA may be very interesting in commercial denitrogenation, especially for coal-derived fuels which contain mainly basic NCCs, by adsorption since the selectivity for NCCs (compared to SCCs) over the adsorbent is very high and the adsorbent can be reused many times.

    We report argon (Ar) noble gas, Ar-Ar ages and halogen abundances (Cl, Br, I) of Martian nakhlites Nakhla, NWA 998 and MIL 03346 to determine the presence of Martian hydrous fluids and weathering products. Neutron-irradiated samples were either crushed and step-heated (Nakhla only), or simply step-heated using a laser or furnace, and analysed for noble gases using an extension of the 40Ar-39Ar technique to determine halogen abundances. The data obtained provide the first isotopic evidence for a trapped fluid that is Cl-rich, has a strong correlation with 40ArXS (40ArXS = 40Armeasured - 40Arradiogenic) and displays 40ArXS/36Ar of ˜1000 - consistent with the Martian atmosphere. This component was released predominantly in the low temperature and crush experiments, which may suggest a fluid inclusion host. For the halogens, we observe similar Br/Cl and I/Cl ratios between the nakhlites and terrestrial reservoirs, which is surprising given the absence of crustal recycling, organic matter and frequent fluid activity on Mars. In particular, Br/Cl ratios in our Nakhla samples (especially olivine) are consistent with previously analysed Martian weathering products, and both low temperature and crush analyses show a similar trend to the evaporation of seawater. This may indicate that surface brines play an important role on Mars and on halogen assemblages within Martian meteorites and rocks. Elevated I/Cl ratios in the low temperature NWA 998 and MIL 03346 releases may relate to in situ terrestrial contamination, though we are unable to distinguish between low temperature terrestrial or Martian components. Whilst estimates of the amount of water present based on the 36Ar concentrations are too high to be explained by a fluid component alone, they are consistent with a mixed-phase inclusion (gas and fluid) or with shock-implanted Martian atmospheric argon. The observed fluid is dilute (low salinity, but high Br/Cl and I/Cl ratios), contains a Martian atmospheric component

    Myeloid leukemias can express interleukin-3 receptors (IL-3R). Therefore, as an antileukemia drug, a fusion immunotoxin was synthesized consisting of the murine IL-3 (mIL-3) gene spliced to a truncated form of the diphtheria toxin (DT390) gene coding for a molecule that retained full enzymatic activity, but excluded the native binding domain. The DT390-mIL-3 hybrid gene was cloned into a vector under the control of an inducible promote. The fusion protein was expressed in Escherichia coli and then purified from inclusion bodies. The fusion toxin was potent because it inhibited FDC-P1, an IL-3R-expressing murine myelomonocytic tumor line (IC50 = 0.025 nmol/L or 1.5 ng/mL). Kinetics were rapid and cell-free studies showed that DT390-mIL-3 was as toxic as native DT. DT390-mIL-3 was selective because anti-mIL-3 monoclonal antibody, but not irrelevant antibody, inhibited its ability to kill. Cell lines not expressing IL-3R were not inhibited by the fusion protein. Because the use of DT390-mIL-3 as an antileukemia agent could be restricted by its reactivity with committed and/or primitive progenitor cells, bone marrow (BM) progenitor assays were performed. DT390-mIL-3 selectively inhibited committed BM progenitor cells as measured by in vitro colony-forming unit-granulocyte-macrophage and in vivo colony-forming unit-spleen colony assays. To determine if this fusion protein was reactive against BM progenitor cells required to rescue lethally irradiated recipients, adoptive transfer experiments were performed. Eight million DT390-mIL-3-treated C57BL/6 Ly5.2 BM cells, but not 4 million, were able to rescue lethally irradiated congenic C57BL/6 Ly5.1 recipients, suggesting that progenitor cells might be heterogenous in their expression of IL-3R. This idea was supported in competitive repopulation experiments in which DT390-mIL-3 treated C57BL/6 Ly5.2 BM cells were mixed with nontreated C57BL/6 Ly5.1 BM cells and used to reconstitute C57BL/6 Ly5.1 mice.

    Conventional small-scale adsorption chillers generally employ silica-gel/water or zeolite/water working pairs given the relatively high level of mesoporosity and water affinity in these adsorbent materials. However, the coefficient of performance (COP) and specific cooling power (SCP) evaluated for the adsorption chiller using these adsorbent/adsorbate pairs cannot be still considered practically feasible in the context of a commercial system. Metal organic frameworks (MOFs) are not only characterized by much higher water adsorption capacities than these materials, but also can be mass-produced using much simpler methods than the template-assisted synthesis routes of most zeolites. However, the low intrinsic thermal conductivity of these materials limits their use as adsorbents in commercial-scale adsorption chillers. In this study, a novel composite composed of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) incorporated in a MIL-100(Fe) framework has been synthesized using a molecular-level mixing process. The resulting composite, with varying volume fraction of MWCNTs, has been characterized for microstructure, degree of crystallinity, thermal stability, water sorption kinetics and hydrothermal cyclic stability for potential use as an adsorbent in commercial adsorption chillers.

    Base rates of low ANAM4 TBI-MIL scores were calculated in a convenience sample of 733 healthy male active duty soldiers using available military reference values for the following cutoffs: ≤2nd percentile (2 SDs), ≤5th percentile, <10th percentile, and <16th percentile (1 SD). Rates of low scores were also calculated in 56 active duty male soldiers who sustained an mTBI an average of 23 days (SD = 36.1) prior. 22.0% of the healthy sample and 51.8% of the mTBI sample had two or more scores below 1 SD (i.e., 16th percentile). 18.8% of the healthy sample and 44.6% of the mTBI sample had one or more scores ≤5th percentile. Rates of low scores in the healthy sample were influenced by cutoffs and race/ethnicity. Importantly, some healthy soldiers obtain at least one low score on ANAM4. These base rate analyses can improve the methodology for interpreting ANAM4 performance in clinical practice and research.

    We show that MIL-STD shaped offset quadrature phase-shift keying (SOQPSK), a highly bandwidth-efficient constant-envelope modulation, can be represented in the form of a cross-correlated trellis-coded quadrature modulation, a generic structure containing both memory and cross-correlation between the in-phase and quadrature-phase channels. Such a representation allows identification of the optimum form of receiver for MIL-STD SOQPSK and at the same time, through modification of the equivalent I and Q encoders to recursive types, allows for it to be embedded as the inner code of a serial or parallel (turbo-like) concatenated coding structure together with iterative decoding.

    Facile regeneration of an adsorbent is very important for commercial feasibility. One typical highly porous metal-organic framework (MOF) materials based on MIL-100(Fe) and magnetic iron oxide particles (denoted as MMCs) with diameter about of 350 nm were successfully synthesized. The growth of MIL-100(Fe) shell on the surface of Fe3O4 was utilized precursor as crystal seed via in-situ step hydrothermal reaction. It is a simple way to obtain well organized core-shell MOF composites, compared to the step-by-step method. MMCs were firstly used to uptake of Cr(VI) anions in aqueous solution. Adsorption experiments were carried out in batch sorption mode investigating with the factors of contact time (0-1000 min), pH (from 2 to 12), dose of adsorbent (4-25 mg), and initial Cr(VI) concentration (range from 10 to 100 ppm).

    In this study, we report the synthesis and application of mesoporous CoFe2O4@MIL-100(Fe) hybrid magnetic nanoparticles (MNPs) for the simultaneous removal of inorganic arsenic (iAs). The hybrid adsorbent had a core-shell and mesoporous structure with an average diameter of 260 nm. The nanoscale size and mesoporous character impart a fast adsorption rate and high adsorption capacity for iAs. In total, 0.1 mg L‑1 As(V) and As(III) could be adsorbed within 2 min, and the maximum adsorption capacities were 114.8 mg g‑1 for As(V) and 143.6 mg g‑1 for As(III), higher than most previously reported adsorbents. The anti-interference capacity for iAs adsorption was improved by the electrostatic repulsion and size exclusion effects of the MIL-100(Fe) shell, which also decreased the zero-charge point of the hybrid absorbent for a broad pH adsorption range. The adsorption mechanisms of iAs on the MNPs are proposed. An Fe-O-As structure was formed on CoFe2O4@MIL-100(Fe) through hydroxyl substitution with the deprotonated iAs species. Monolayer adsorption of As(V) was observed, while hydrogen bonding led to the multi-layer adsorption of neutral As(III) for its high adsorption capacity. The high efficiency and the excellent pH- and interference-tolerance capacities of CoFe2O4@MIL-100(Fe) allowed effective iAs removal from natural water samples, as validated with batch magnetic separation mode and a portable filtration strategy.

    A new porous metal-organic framework (MOF)-type aluminum pyromellitate (MIL-121 or Al(OH)[H(2)btec]·(guest), (guest = H(2)O, H(4)btec = pyromellitic acid) has been isolated by using a high-throughput synthesis method under hydrothermal conditions. Its structure was determined from powder X-ray diffraction analysis using synchrotron radiation (Soleil, France) and exhibits a network closely related to that of the MIL-53 series. It is a three-dimensional (3D) framework containing one-dimensional (1D) channels delimited by infinite trans-connected aluminum-centered octahedra AlO(4)(OH)(2) linked through the pyromellitate ligand. Here the organic ligand acts as tetradendate linker via two of the carboxylate groups. The two others remain non-bonded in their protonated form, and this constitutes a rare case of the occurrence of both bonding and non-bonding organic functionalities of the MOF family. The non-coordinated -COOH groups points toward the channels to get them an open form configuration. Within the tunnels are located unreacted pyromellitic acid and water species, which are evacuated upon heating, and a porous MIL-121 phase is obtained with a Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) surface area of 162 m(2) g(-1). MIL-121 has been characterized by IR, thermogravimetry (TG) analyses, and solid state NMR spectroscopy employing a couple of two-dimensional (2D) techniques such as (1)H-(1)H SQ-DQ BABA, (1)H-(1)H SQ-SQ RFDR, (27)Al{(1)H} CPHETCOR and (27)Al MQMAS.

    The adsorption of N/S-containing heterocyclic organic molecules in the flexible iron(III) terephthalate MIL-53, Fe(III)(OH)(0.6)F(0.4)(O2C-C6H4-CO2)·(H2O), from the liquid phase was studied with in situ energy dispersive X-ray diffraction (EDXRD), in order to follow the adsorption-induced expansion of the structure. For comparison with the diffraction data, liquid phase adsorption isotherms were recorded for uptake of benzothiophene, benzothiazole and indole in isopropanol and in heptane. The solvent not only influences pore opening but is also a competing guest. The in situ EDXRD experiments allow the kinetics of guest uptake and the competition with solvent to be monitored directly. Indole uptake is limited; this adsorbate is barely capable of opening the closed, either hydrated or dehydrated, MIL-53(Fe) structure, or of penetrating the isopropanol-containing material in the concentration range under study. When isopropanol is used as a solvent, the guest molecules benzothiophene and benzothiazole must be present at a certain threshold concentration before substantial adsorption into the metal-organic framework takes place, eventually resulting in full opening of the structure. The fully expanded structures of benzothiophene or benzothiazole loaded MIL-53(Fe) materials have Imcm symmetry and a unit cell volume of ca. 1600 Å(3), and upon uptake of the guest molecules by the closed form (unit cell volume ~1000 Å(3)) no intermediate crystalline phases are seen. Successful uptake by MIL-53(Fe) requires that the adsorbate is primarily a good hydrogen bond acceptor; additionally, based on UV-visible spectroscopy, a charge-transfer interaction between the S atoms of benzothiophene and the aromatic rings in the MOF pore wall is proposed.

  7. Comparisons of the four Miller Range nakhlites, MIL 03346, 090030, 090032 and 090136: Textural and compositional observations of primary and secondary mineral assemblages

    Petrological and geochemical analyses of Miller Range (MIL) 03346 indicate that this meteorite originated from the same augitic cumulate layer(s) as the nakhlite Martian meteorites, but underwent rapid cooling prior to complete crystallization. As with the other nakhlites, MIL 03346 contains a secondary alteration assemblage, in this case consisting of iddingsite-like alteration veins in olivine phenocrysts, Fe-oxide alteration veins associated with the mesostasis, and Ca- and K,Fe-sulfate veins. We compared the textural and mineralogical compositions of MIL 090030, 090032, and 090136 with MIL 03346, focusing on the composition and Raman spectra of the alteration assemblages. These observations indicate that the meteorites are paired, and that the preterrestrial olivine-bound alteration assemblages were produced by weakly acidic brine. Although these alteration assemblages resemble similar assemblages in Nakhla, the absence of siderite and halite in the Miller Range nakhlites indicates that the parental alteration brine was comparatively HCO3- depleted, and less concentrated, than that which altered Nakhla. This indicates that the Miller Range nakhlite alteration brine experienced a separate evolutionary pathway to that which altered Nakhla, and therefore represents a separate branch of the Lafayette-Nakhla evaporation sequence. Thin-sections cut from the internal portions of these meteorites (away from any fusion crust or terrestrially exposed edge), contain little Ca-sulfate (identified as gypsum), and no jarosite, whereas thin-sections with terrestrially exposed edges have much higher sulfate abundances. These observations suggest that at least the majority of sulfate within the Miller Range nakhlites is terrestrially derived.

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

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

    A medical nanoplatform with small size, low cost, biocompatibility, good biodegradability, and, in particular, multifunctionality has attracted much attention in the exploration of novel therapeutic methodologies. As an emerging material of self-assembled porous structure, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have high expectations because of their special properties compared to traditional porous materials. Therefore, integration of MOFs and functional materials is leading to the creation of new multifunctional composites/hybrids. Photothermal therapy (PTT), using near-IR (NIR) laser-absorbing nanomaterials as PTT agents, has shown encouraging therapeutic effects to photothermally ablate tumors. However, the most of widely used PTT agents are inorganic materials and nonbiodegradable. Herein, uniform polypyrrole (PPy) nanoparticles (NPs) with good biodegradability were synthesized by a microemulsion method. The PPy NPs were further coated with the mesoporous iron-based MOF structure MIL-100 by interaction between PPy NPs and MIL-100 precursors at room temperature. As a multifunctional nanoplatform, an anticancer drug could easily be loaded into the mesopores of the MIL-100 shell. The PPy core, as an organic photothermal agent, is able to photothermally ablate cancer cells and improve the efficacy of chemotherapy under NIR irradiation. The composites showed an outstanding in vivo synergistic anticancer capacity. Our work could encourage further study in the construction of a synergetic system using MOFs and organic PTT agents.

    The Sierra de Mil Cumbres is a Miocene volcanic range located in central México, in the north-eastern part of the State of Michoacán, near the city of Morelia. Structurally it is a ENE-trending horst that covers an area of 1022 km2 (approximately 20 km wide × 60 km long) and contains exposures of chemically-bimodal volcanism in the form of ignimbrites, lava domes, lava flows, cinder cones, and related deposits. The main volcanic manifestations of this range are the La Escalera Caldera (16.3-23 Ma), the Garnica Volcanic Complex (18.3-17.9 Ma), the Atécuaro Caldera (16.3-19.4 Ma), and the Indaparapeo Volcanic Complex (14.1-17.5 Ma). The Sierra de Mil Cumbres stands in space and time at the intersection between the Miocene-Recent Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt and the Late Cretaceous-Early Miocene Sierra Madre Occidental, and so provides new insights into the geological evolution of central México. Arc volcanism in the Sierra de Mil Cumbres was initiated by a massive NNW-SSE extension, probably during the counterclockwise rotation of the Sierra Madre Occidental. New geological mapping, stratigraphic analysis, detailed geochemistry and 40Ar/39Ar geochronology demonstrates that this intra-plate volcanism was emplaced between 14 and 23 Ma.

    The metal-organic framework MIL-53(Al) (aluminium terephthalate) exhibits a structural transition between two porous structures with large pore (lp) or narrow pore (np) configurations. This transition, called the breathing effect, is observed upon changes in temperature or external pressure, as well as with the adsorption of guest molecules, such as H2O, within the pores. We show here how these different pore openings can be detected by observing the dephasing of (13)C magnetization under (13)C-(27)Al dipolar couplings using Rotational-Echo Saturation-Pulse Double-Resonance (RESPDOR) solid-state NMR experiments with Simultaneous Frequency and Amplitude Modulation (SFAM) recoupling. These double-resonance NMR experiments between (13)C and (27)Al nuclei, which have close Larmor frequencies, are feasible thanks to the use of a frequency splitter. The experimental SFAM-RESPDOR signal fractions agree well with those simulated from the MIL-53(Al)-lp and -np crystal structures obtained from powder X-ray diffraction analysis. Hence, these (13)C-(27)Al solid-state NMR experiments validate these structures and confirm their rigidity. A similar agreement is reported for the framework ligands in the as-synthesized (as) MIL-53(Al), in which the pores contain free ligands. Furthermore, in this case, (13)C-{(27)Al} SFAM-RESPDOR experiments allow an estimation of the average distance between the free ligands and the (27)Al nuclei of the framework.

    Alumina-hercynite nano-spinel powders were prepared via one-step pyrolysis of iron-acetylacetone-doped Al-based metal-organic framework (MOF), i.e., MIL-53(Al). Organic ferric source, iron acetylacetone, was incorporated in situ into the framework of MIL-53(Al) during the solvothermal synthesis process. Under high-temperature pyrolysis, alumina derived from the MIL-53(Al) matrix and ferric oxides originated from the decomposition of organic ferric precursor in the framework were thermally converted into hercynite (FeAl2O4). The prepared samples were characterized using transmission electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, N2 sorption, thermogravimetry, Raman spectroscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. The final products were identified to be composed of alumina, hercynite and trace amounts of carbon depending on pyrolysis temperature. The experimental results showed that hercynite phase can be obtained and stabilized at low temperatures between 900 and 1100 °C under inert atmosphere. The final products were composed of nano-sized particles with an average size below 100 nm of individual crystal and specific surface areas of 18-49 m2 g-1.

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

    A flight digital data acquisition system that uses the MIL-STD-1553B bus for transmission of data to a host computer for control law processing is described. The instrument, the Remote Interface Unit (RIU), can accommodate up to 16 input channels and eight output channels. The RIU employs a digital signal processor to perform local digital filtering before sending data to the host. The system allows flexible sensor and actuator data organization to facilitate quick control law computations on the host computer. The instrument can also run simple control laws autonomously without host intervention. The RIU and host computer together have replaced a similar larger, ground minicomputer system with favorable results.

    By a facile coordination-based post-synthetic strategy, the high surface area MIL-101(Cr) nanoparticles was functionallized by grafting amine group of ethylenediamine (ED) on coordinatively unsaturated Cr(III) centers, yielding a series of ED-MIL-101(Cr)-based adsorbents and their application for adsorption of U(VI) from aqueous solution were also studied. The obtained ED-functionallized samples with different ED contents were characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), scanning electron microscope (SEM), energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), FTIR, elemental analysis (EA) and N2 adsorption and desorption isothermal. Compared with the pristine MIL-101(Cr) sorbents, the ED-functionallized MIL-101(Cr) exhibits significantly higher adsorption capacity for U(VI) ions from water with maximum adsorption capacities as high as 200 mg/g (corresponding to 100% extraction rate) at pH of 4.5 with ED/Cr ratio of 0.68 and the sorbed U(VI) ions can easily be desorbed at lower pH (pH ≤ 2.0). The adsorption mode of U(VI) ions and effects of grafted ED on the MIL-101(Cr) frameworks were also been studied by X-ray absorption spectroscopy (XAS). We believe that this work establishes a simple and energy efficient route to a novel type of functional materials for U(VI) ions extraction from solution via the post-synthetic modification (PSM) strategy.

    The chemical stability of metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) is a major factor preventing their use in industrial processes. Herein, it is shown that judicious choice of the base for the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction can avoid decomposition of the MOF catalyst Pd@MIL-101-NH2 (Cr). Four bases were compared for the reaction: K2 CO3 , KF, Cs2 CO3 and CsF. The carbonates were the most active and achieved excellent yields in shorter reaction times than the fluorides. However, powder XRD and N2 sorption measurements showed that the MOF catalyst was degraded when carbonates were used but remained crystalline and porous with the fluorides. XANES measurements revealed that the trimeric chromium cluster of Pd@MIL-101-NH2 (Cr) is still present in the degraded MOF. In addition, the different countercations of the base significantly affected the catalytic activity of the material. TEM revealed that after several catalytic runs many of the Pd nanoparticles (NPs) had migrated to the external surface of the MOF particles and formed larger aggregates. The Pd NPs were larger after catalysis with caesium bases compared to potassium bases.

    In this work, a magnetic metal-organic framework designated as MIL-100(Fe) was prepared and applied as a magnetic solid-phase extraction sorbent for the determination of trace polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in environmental water samples by coupling with high-performance liquid chromatography and fluorescence detection. The magnetic microspheres exhibited large surface areas and high extraction ability, making them excellent candidates as sorbents for enrichment of trace polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. Under the optimized experimental conditions, good sensitivity levels were achieved with low detection limits ranging from 32 to 2110 pg/mL and good linearities with correlation coefficients higher than 0.9990 for the investigated 13 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. The proposed method has been validated in the analysis of real water samples with mean recoveries in the range of 81.4-126.9% at four spiked levels and the relative standard deviations in the range of 1.3-17.0%. The magnetic MIL-100(Fe) microspheres were stable enough for 150 extractions without a significant loss of extraction performance.

    A facile generic template-free strategy is employed to prepare hierarchical hollow hybrid Fe2O3@MIL-101(Fe)/C materials derived from metal-organic frameworks as anode materials for Na-ion batteries. The intrinsic hollow nanostructure can shorten the lengths for both electronic and ionic transport, enlarge the surface areas of electrodes, and improve accommodation of the volume change during Na+ insertion/extraction cycling. Therefore, The stable reversible capacity of Fe2O3@MIL-101(Fe)/C electrode is 710 mAhg‑1, and can be retained at 662 mAhg‑1 after 200 cycles with the retention of 93.2%. Especially, its overall rate performance data confirm again the importance of the hierarchical hollow structures and multi-elements characteristics toward high capacities in both low and high current rates. This general strategy may shed light on a new avenue for fast synthesis of hierarchic hollow functional materials for energy storage, catalyst, sensor and other new applications.

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

    The influence of the metal ion in the mesoporous metal trimesate MIL-100(Al(3+), Cr(3+), Fe(3+), V(3+)) on the adsorptive removal of N/S-heterocyclic molecules from fuels has been investigated by combining isotherms for adsorption from a model fuel solution with microcalorimetric and IR spectroscopic characterizations. The results show a clear influence of the different metals (Al, Fe, Cr, V) on the affinity for the heterocyclic compounds, on the integral adsorption enthalpies, and on the uptake capacities. Among several factors, the availability of coordinatively unsaturated sites and the presence of basic sites next to the coordinative vacancies are important factors contributing to the observed affinity differences for N-heterocyclic compounds. These trends were deduced from IR spectroscopic observation of adsorbed indole molecules, which can be chemisorbed coordinatively or by formation of hydrogen bonded species. On the basis of our results we are able to propose an optimized adsorbent for the deep and selective removal of nitrogen contaminants out of fuel feeds, namely MIL-100(V).

    Mutations in mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) encoded nucleotide 8993 can cause NARP syndrome (neuropathy, ataxia, and retinitis pigmentosa) or MILS (maternally inherited Leigh syndrome). The rare T8993C mutation in the MT-ATP6 gene is generally considered to be clinically milder, but there is marked clinical heterogeneity ranging from asymptomatic carriers to fatal infantile Leigh syndrome. Clinical heterogeneity has mostly been attributed to mtDNA heteroplasmy, but environmental, autosomal, tissue-specific factors, nuclear modifier genes, and mtDNA variations may also modulate disease expression. Here, we report the results of whole mitochondrial genome analysis of a family with m.8993T>C mutation in the MT-ATP6 gene and associated with NARP/MILS, and discuss the familial inheritance, effects of variation in combinations and heteroplasmy levels on the clinical findings. The whole mitochondrial genome was sequenced with ~182× average depth of coverage per sample with next-generation sequencing technology. Thus, all heteroplasmic (>%10) and homoplasmic variations were determined (except for 727C insertion) and classified according to the associations with mitochondrial diseases.

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

    An attractive metal-organic framework (MOF) MIL-101(Cr) material was synthesized at the nanoscale and applied as a sorbent in the porous membrane-protected micro-solid-phase extraction (μ-SPE) device for the pre-concentration of phthalate esters (PAEs) in drinking water samples for the first time. Parameters influencing the extraction efficiency, such as the selection of sorbent materials, pH adjustment, the effect of salt, magnetic-stirring extraction time, the desorption solvent and the desorption time, were investigated. Under the optimum conditions, the limits of detection from gas chromatography-mass spectrometric analysis for PAEs varied from 0.004 to 0.02 μg L(-1). The linear ranges were from 0.1 to 50 μg L(-1) or from 0.2 to 50 μg L(-1) for the analytes with the relative standard deviations fluctuating from 0.8 to 10.9% (n = 5). The enrichment factors (EFs) for the target PAEs were varied from 143 to 187. MIL-101(Cr) exhibited remarkable advantages compared to activated carbon and MIL-100(Fe). On the other hand, the computational method was first used to predict the adsorption of MIL-101(Cr) towards PAEs. The molecular interactions and the free binding energies between MIL-101(Cr) and PAEs were observed and calculated in terms of the molecular modeling method. MIL-101(Cr) showed high potential in the analysis of PAEs at trace levels in drinking water. The computational result was consistent with the detected enrichment factors. The computational modeling accurately predicted the extraction efficiency of MOF-based material towards the target analytes. Therefore, the combination of experimental and computational study provided a new strategy on the trace contaminant analysis.

    Superparamagnetic Fe3O4 supraparticles@MIL-100(Fe) core-shell nanostructure microspheres were successfully constructed by a facile step-by-step method. The polyacrylate formed in situ during the process of the preparation of Fe3O4 supraparticles not only acted as a stabilizer on the Fe3O4 nanoparticles surface, but also played a crucial role as a "bridge" in the initial stage of the framework components selectively assembly on the Fe3O4 supraparticle surfaces. The structure and composition of the obtained microspheres were characterized by SEM, TEM, DLS, XRD, FTIR, and TG analysis. The MPMS results revealed that the introduction of the MOF shells can inhibit the interplay among the neighboring Fe3O4 supraparticles while an external magnetic field applied. The well-dispersed microspheres are biocompatible, which endow the microspheres great potential in drug targeting applications with enhanced efficiency.

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

    A composite was prepared by combining a highly porous metal-organic framework (MOF), MIL-101 (Cr-benzenedicarboxylate), and graphene oxide (GnO). The porosity of the composite increased appreciably by the addition of GnO up to a specific amount in the MOF, though further increases in the quantity of GnO was detrimental to porosity. The improved porosity of the GnO/MIL-101 composite was utilized for adsorptive denitrogenation (ADN) of a model fuel where indole (IND) and quinoline (QUI) were used as nitrogen-containing compounds (NCCs). It was found that both IND and QUI showed improved adsorption on the composite compared with pristine MIL-101 or GnO due to the improved porosity of the composite. Interestingly, the improvement in adsorption of IND was much higher than the quantity estimated for the porosity. Importantly, GnO/MIL-101 showed the highest adsorption capacities for NCCs. Irrespective of the studied solvents and co-presence of IND and QUI, the composite adsorbent performed ADN most effectively. This remarkable improvement is explained by the additional mechanism of hydrogen bonding between the surface functional groups of GnO and the hydrogen attached to the nitrogen atom of IND. This hydrogen bonding mechanism is also supported by the results of the adsorption of pyrrole and methylpyrrole. On the other hand, QUI does not show hydrogen-bonding capability, and therefore, its enhanced adsorption originates from only the increased porosity of the adsorbents.

    The aim of this study was to propose and test a new laboratory cheesemaking procedure [9-mL milk cheesemaking assessment (9-MilCA)], which records 15 traits related to milk coagulation, curd firming, syneresis, cheese yield, and curd nutrients recovery or whey loss. This procedure involves instruments found in many laboratories (i.e., heaters and lacto-dynamographs), with an easy modification of the sample rack for the insertion of 10-mL glass tubes. Four trials were carried out to test the 9-MilCA procedure. The first trial compared 8 coagulation and curd firming traits obtained using regular or modified sample racks to process milk samples from 60 cows belonging to 5 breeds and 3 farms (480 tests). The obtained patterns exhibited significant but irrelevant between-procedure differences, with better repeatability seen for 9-MilCA. The second trial tested the reproducibility and repeatability of the 7 cheesemaking traits obtained using the 9-MilCA procedure on individual samples from 60 cows tested in duplicate in 2 instruments (232 tests). The method yielded very repeatable outcomes for all 7 tested cheese yield and nutrient recovery traits (repeatability >98%), with the exception of the fresh cheese yield (84%), which was affected by the lower repeatability (67%) of the water retained in the curd. In the third trial (96 tests), we found that using centrifugation in place of curd cooking and draining (as adopted in several published studies) reduced the efficiency of whey separation, overestimated all traits, and worsened the repeatability. The fourth trial compared 9-MilCA with a more complex model cheese-manufacturing process that mimics industry practices, using 1,500-mL milk samples (72 cows, 216 tests). The average results obtained from 9-MilCA were similar to those obtained from the model cheeses, with between-method correlations ranging from 78 to 99%, except for the water retained in the curd (r=54%). Our results indicate that new 9-MilCA method is a

    Four existing and three new functionalized chromium terephthalates having MIL-101 topology and denoted as Cr-MIL-101-X (existing ones with X=-F, 1-F; -Cl, 2-Cl; -Br, 3-Br; -CH3, 4-CH3; new ones with X=-C6H4, 5-C6H4; -F2, 6-F2, -(CH3)2, 7-(CH3)2) were synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. All the materials except 5-C6H4 could be prepared by a general synthetic route, in which the mixtures of CrO3, H2BDC-X (BDC=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) linkers, conc. HCl and water with a molar ratio of 1:1:3.9:222.2 were reacted at 180 °C for 144 h. Compared to the 144 h of synthesis time, three of the compounds, namely 1-Cl, 2-Br and 5-C6H4, could be prepared in much shorter reaction times (12-18 h at 180-210 °C). The materials possess high thermal stability up to 270-300 °C in an air atmosphere. The activated compounds exhibit significant porosity (SBET range: 1273-2135 m2 g-1). At 0 °C and 1 bar, the CO2 adsorption capacities of the compounds fall in the 1.7-2.9 mmol g-1 range. Compounds 1-F and 6-F2 showed enhanced CO2 uptake values compared to parent Cr-MIL-101. The benzene adsorption capacities of the compounds lie in the range of 66.2-139.5 molecules per unit cell at 50 °C and p/p0=0.35. The increased benzene uptake value of 1-F compared to un-functionalized Cr-MIL-101 and 4-CH3 suggests that the fluorination has induced more hydrophobicity in Cr-MIL-101 as compared to the methylation.

    An alternative scheme in acquiring 13C spectroscopic images using inverse detection via polarization transfer through protons was proposed and experimentally verified by a phantom using a heteronuclear multiple-quantum coherence technique. This scheme has some features that, in special circumstances, can be exploited to one's advantages. These features are: (1) signal enhancement, a feat realizable under favorable conditions; (2) spectroscopic encoding via constant time; and (3) improvement of the time efficiency of the constant-time method via optimization by singular-value decomposition analysis. Features (1) and (2) can, in some cases, yield better sensitivity than the conventional 3DFT technique without sacrificing the most important attribute of 13C, the enormity of the chemical shifts. Such is the case because spectroscopic images acquired by the technique proposed are based on the chemical shifts of carbon, in contrast to the other more prevalent inverse-detection schemes. Feature (2) can also offer higher spatial resolution by shifting the emphasis of signal encoding from a spectral-resolution-first viewpoint to one that favors spatial resolution. Feature (3) was adopted from a method previously known as MILS (metabolite imaging of lines in a spectrum), or the inverse of SLIM, an economical scheme originally proposed by Hu et al. (1988, Magn. Reson. Med. 8, 314) for obtaining a compartmentalized NMR spectrum. Copyright 1998 Academic Press. Copyright 1998 Academic Press

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

In this article, we evaluate what crystal chemistry, terrestrial analogs, and experiments have shown about how chlorine-dominant amphibole (chloro-amphibole) forms and apply these insights to the nakhlites. Chloro-amphibole is rare, with about a dozen identified localities on Earth. It is always rich in potassium and iron and poor in titanium. In terrestrial settings, its presence has been interpreted to result from medium to high-grade alteration (>400 °C) of a protolith by an alkali and/or iron chloride-rich aqueous fluid. Ferrous chloride fluids exsolved from mafic magmas can cause such alteration, as can crustal fluids that have reacted with rock and lost H2O in preference to chloride, resulting in concentrated alkali chloride fluids. In the case of the nakhlites, an aqueous alkali-ferrous chloride fluid was exsolved from the parental melt as it crystallized. This aqueous chloride fluid itself likely unmixed into chloride-dominant and water-dominant fluids. Chloride-dominant fluid was trapped in some melt inclusions and reacted with the silicate contents of the inclusion to form potassic-chloro-hastingsite.

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

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

    A novel method with high sensitivity for the rapid determination of chrysin, apigenin and luteolin in environment water samples was developed by double-pumps controlled on-line solid-phase extraction (SPE) coupled with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). In the developed technique, metal organic framework MIL-101 was synthesized and applied as a sorbent for SPE. The as-synthesized MIL-101 was characterized by scanning electron microscope, X-ray diffraction spectrometry, thermal gravimetric analysis and micropore physisorption analysis. The MIL-101 behaved as a fast kinetics in the adsorption of chrysin, apigenin and luteolin. On-line SPE of chrysin, apigenin and luteolin was processed by loading a sample solution at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min for 10 min. The extracted analytes were subsequently eluted into a ZORBAX Bonus-RP analytical column (25 cm long × 4.6 mm i.d.) for HPLC separation under isocratic condition with a mobile phase (MeOH: ACN: 0.02 M H3 PO4 = 35:35:30) at a flow rate of 1.0 mL/min. Experimental conditions, including ionic strength, sample pH, sample loading rates, sample loading time and desorption analytes time, were further optimized to obtain efficient preconcentration and high-precision determination of the analytes mentioned above. The method achieved the merits of simplicity, rapidity, sensitivity, wide linear range and high sample throughput. The possible mechanism for the adsorption of flavonoids on MIL-101 was proposed. The developed method has been applied to determine trace chrysin, apigenin and luteolin in a variety of environmental water samples.

    MIL-101(Cr) is an excellent metal-organic framework with high surface area and nanoscale cavities, making it promising in solid-phase extraction. Herein, we used MIL-101(Cr) as a solid-phase extraction packing material combined with fast detection of direct analysis in real time mass spectrometry (DART-MS) for the analysis of triazine herbicides. After systematic optimization of the operation parameters, including the gas temperature of DART, the moving speed of the 1D platform, solvent for desorption, amount of MIL-101(Cr) extraction time, eluent volume and salt concentration, this method can realize the simultaneous detection of five kinds of triazine herbicides. The limits of detection were 0.1∼0.2 ng/mL and the linear ranges covered more than two orders of magnitude with the quantitation limits of 0.5∼1 ng/mL. Moreover, the developed method has been applied for the analysis of lake water samples and the recoveries for spiked analytes were in the range of 85∼110%. These results showed that solid-phase extraction with metal-organic frameworks is an efficient sample preparation approach for DART-MS analysis and could find more applications in environmental analysis.

    In this work, a novel NH2-MIL-53(Al) incorporated poly(styrene-divinylbenzene-methacrylic acid) (poly(St-DVB-MAA)) monolith was prepared via chemical fabrication. Moreover, it has been efficiently applied to the in-tube solid-phase microextraction (SPME) for online coupling with high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to the direct determination of five estrogens in human urine samples. The NH2-MIL-53(Al)-polymer monolith was suitable for in-tube SPME owing to its good permeability, high extraction efficiency, chemical stability, good reproducibility and long lifetime. The extraction conditions including extraction solvent, pH of sample solution, flow rate of extraction and desorption, and desorption volume were investigated. Under the optimum conditions, the enrichment factors were 180-304 and saturated amounts of extraction were 2326-21393 pmol for estriol, 17β-estradiol, estrone, ethinyl estradiol and progesterone, respectively. The adsorption mechanism was also explored which contributed to its strong extraction to target compounds. The proposed method had low limit of detection (2.0-40ng/L) and good linearity (with R(2) between 0.9908 and 0.9978). Four endogenous estrogens were detected in urine samples and the recoveries of all five analytes were ranged from 75.1-120% with relative standard deviations (RSDs) less than 8.7%. The results showed that the proposed online SPME-HPLC method based on NH2-MIL-53(Al)-polymer monolithic column was highly sensitive for directly monitoring trace amount of estrogens in human urine sample.

    As a novel kind of materials, metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) have great potential for the preconcentration of trace analytes. In our work, MIL-101(Cr) was prepared and applied as a solid phase extraction (SPE) sorbent for the pretreatment of sulfadiazine (SDA), sulfamethazine (SMZ), sulfachloropyridazine (SCP) and sulfamethoxazole (SMX) in different environmental water samples coupling with ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) detection. Experimental parameters, such as SPE materials, pH of water sample, volume of sample, flow rate, and type and volume of elution solvent, were properly optimized. Under the optimum conditions, good sensitivity levels were achieved with the detection limits of 0.03-0.08μg/L and the quantitation limits of 0.11-0.27μg/L. The linear ranges were from 0.2-40 or 0.5-100μg/L (r(2)>0.996) for the analytes, and the relative recoveries were in the range from 83.5% to 107.3% with the relative standard deviations (RSD) between 0.2% and 8.0% (n=6). In addition, computational simulation was primarily used to predict the adsorption of MIL-101(Cr) toward sulphonamides (SAs), and also demonstrated the molecular interactions and free binding energies with the molecular modeling method. The results revealed that the combination of experimental and computational study not only accurately recognized the adsorption of MIL-101(Cr) on SAs, but also provided a new strategy on the trace contaminant analysis.

    Four existing and three new functionalized chromium terephthalates having MIL-101 topology and denoted as Cr-MIL-101-X (existing ones with X=–F, 1-F; –Cl, 2-Cl; –Br, 3-Br; –CH{sub 3}, 4-CH{sub 3}; new ones with X=–C{sub 6}H{sub 4}, 5-C{sub 6}H{sub 4}; –F{sub 2}, 6-F{sub 2}, –(CH{sub 3}){sub 2}, 7-(CH{sub 3}){sub 2}) were synthesized under hydrothermal conditions. All the materials except 5-C{sub 6}H{sub 4} could be prepared by a general synthetic route, in which the mixtures of CrO{sub 3}, H{sub 2}BDC-X (BDC=1,4-benzenedicarboxylate) linkers, conc. HCl and water with a molar ratio of 1:1:3.9:222.2 were reacted at 180 °C for 144 h. Compared to the 144 h of synthesis time, three of the compounds, namely 1-Cl, 2-Br and 5-C{sub 6}H{sub 4}, could be prepared in much shorter reaction times (12–18 h at 180–210 °C). The materials possess high thermal stability up to 270–300 °C in an air atmosphere. The activated compounds exhibit significant porosity (S{sub BET} range: 1273–2135 m{sup 2} g{sup −1}). At 0 °C and 1 bar, the CO{sub 2} adsorption capacities of the compounds fall in the 1.7–2.9 mmol g{sup −1} range. Compounds 1-F and 6-F{sub 2} showed enhanced CO{sub 2} uptake values compared to parent Cr-MIL-101. The benzene adsorption capacities of the compounds lie in the range of 66.2–139.5 molecules per unit cell at 50 °C and p/p{sub 0}=0.35. The increased benzene uptake value of 1-F compared to un-functionalized Cr-MIL-101 and 4-CH{sub 3} suggests that the fluorination has induced more hydrophobicity in Cr-MIL-101 as compared to the methylation. - Graphical abstract: Benzene adsorption by seven functionalized Cr-MIL-101-X metal-organic framework (MOF) materials Display Omitted - Highlights: • Seven functionalized Cr-MIL-101-X materials were synthesized solvothermally. • All Cr-MIL-101-X materials exhibited high thermal stability up to 270–300 °C in air. • All Cr-MIL-101-X compounds displayed considerable porosity towards N{sub 2

The concentration of phosphates decreased sharply from the initial 0.60 to 0.045 mg.L−1 with the exposure time in 50 minutes. The correlation between the most significant parameters such as contact time, adsorbent dose, pH, as well as adsorption capacities was optimized, and the effects of these parameters on the removal efficiency of phosphates were investigated. Surface functionalization of magnetic hollow materials is a well-designed way to bridge the gap between high adsorption activity, excellent separation and recovery of phosphates from the water treatment system. Therefore, it exhibits a remarkable selective removal of phosphates from aqueous solution. PMID:27470443

    Metal-organic framework MIL-101(Cr) was successfully used as an efficient sorbent in a vortex-assisted dispersive solid-phase extraction (VA-DSPE) and applied for the determination and the pharmacokinetic of imatinib mesylate in rat plasma by UPLC-MS/MS. In the enrichment of imatinib from rat plasma, the analyte was efficiently adsorbed on MIL-101(Cr) and simply recovered by using initial mobile phase (0.1% formic acid-methanol (6:4 v/v)) as elution solvent. Meanwhile, the protein in the plasma samples was excluded from the porous structure of MIL-101(Cr), leading to direct extraction of drug molecule from protein-rich biological samples without any other pretreatment procedure. After being removed, the supernatant was filtered and directly injected into the UPLC-MS/MS for the analysis of the target. The experimental parameters, including nature of MOFs, amount of MIL-101(Cr), pH value of aqueous solution, extraction time, type and volume of elution solvent, were systematically optimized. After VA-DSPE, chromatographic separation was performed on an ACQUITY UPLC(®) BEH C18 column (2.1mm×100mm, 1.7μm) with a 3min gradient elution using 0.1% formic acid and methanol as mobile phase at a flow rate of 0.3mL/min. The detection was accomplished on a tandem mass spectrometer via an electrospray ionization (ESI) source by multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) in the positive ionization mode. The lower limit of quantification of 1ng/mL was achieved and the mean recovery of the analyte was higher than 81.2%. Moreover, computational simulation was primarily applied to predict the adsorption behavior and revealed the molecular interactions and free binding energies between MIL-101(Cr) and imatinib with the molecular modeling method, providing certain explanation of the adsorption mechanism. The originally established pretreatment and detection method has some merits, such as less solvent consumption, easy operation, higher sensitivity and lower matrix effect. And the MIL-101

    We previously reported that serial passaging of Rous-associated virus type 1 in nondividing chicken embryo neuroretina cells leads to reproducible generation of acutely mitogenic retroviruses that transduced the catalytic domain of c-mil/c-raf or c-Rmil/B-raf. On the basis of structural analysis of several retroviruses, we proposed that the early step of oncogene transduction is the constitution of alternatively spliced leader-delta onc-poly(A) transcripts. Here, we show that neuroretina cells do synthesize hybrid leader-delta mil and leader-delta Rmil RNAs and that these RNAs exhibit mitogenic properties and serve as templates for the generation of transducing retorviruses.

    A new mixed zinc-aluminum phosphate Zn(3)Al(6)(PO(4))(12), 4tren, 17H(2)O (MIL-74) has been hydrothermally synthesized with the tris(2-aminoethyl)amine (tren) as a structure-directing agent (453 K, 36 h, autogenous pressure). The solid was characterized by a nonclassical method combining single-crystal X-ray diffraction and several solid-state NMR experiments, RFDR, C7 double quantum ((31)P), and 3QMAS ((27)Al). Its crystal structure is cubic, a = 16.7942(1) A, but the choice of the space group does not follow usual routes of structure determination, due to some "disorder" between Zn and Al. It can be assigned as well to I-43m or to P-43n. The open-framework is built up from an enneameric unit (T = Zn, Al) containing five TO(4) and four PO(4) tetrahedra (one of the P-O bonds is terminal). A central TO(4) tetrahedral unit shares all of the corners with four phosphates groups. Two phosphate groups are connected to two other peripheral TO(4) units. It results in the formation of a "pseudo" planar building block T(5)P(4) consisting of four square 4-rings. The connection of the T(5)P(4) units generates a three-dimensional framework, which defines a super-sodalite topology. The resulting cavities (diameter of 10 A) are bound by 12-ring windows in which are located the tren species in interaction with the phosphate groups (mainly terminal P-O bonds) through hydrogen bonds. A cluster of 17 water molecules occupies the center of the super-sodalite cage. The cationic (Zn, Al) occupancy is discussed for this specific topology.

    In the presented work, metal-organic framework (MOF) material MIL-101(Cr) (MIL, Matérial Institute Lavoisier) was used as a sorbent for vortex assisted dispersive micro-solid-phase extraction (VA-D-μ-SPE) of trace amount of metronidazole (MNZ), ronidazole (RNZ), secnidazole (SNZ), dimetridazole (DMZ), tinidazole (TNZ), and ornidazole (ONZ) in different environmental water samples. Ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-MS/MS) was used to quantify the target analytes. The extraction conditions, including type of sorbents, amount of MIL-101(Cr), solution pH, extraction method, extraction time, effect of salt, and elution conditions were investigated. Upon the optimal conditions, the developed method showed an excellent extraction performance with the average recovery ranging from 75.2 to 98.8 %. Good sensitivity levels were achieved with the detection limits of 0.03∼0.06 μg/L and the quantitation limits of 0.09∼0.20 μg/L. The linear ranges were varied from 0.1 to 20 for SNZ and ONZ and from 0.2 to 40 μg/L for MNZ, RNZ, DMZ, and TNZ (r (2) > 0.992), and repeatability of the method was satisfactory with the relative standard deviations (RSD) <8 %. Ultimately, the applicability of the method was successfully confirmed by the extraction and determination of 5-nitroimidazoles (5-NDZs) in 12 real water samples, showing the positive findings of MNZ and TNZ ranging from 0.3 to 1.0 μg/L. Furthermore, molecular docking was applied to explain the molecular interactions and free binding energies between MIL-101(Cr) and 5-NDZs, providing a deep insight into the adsorption mechanism. The proposed method exhibited the advantages of simplicity, rapidly, less solvent consumption, ease of operation, higher sensitivity, and lower matrix effect.

    The flexible electronics industry has adopted flexible hybrid electronic (FHE) systems as a go to market strategy. High volume products are emerging for body worn bio patches, conformal structural appliques and smart labels. These products were principally developed for volume consumer and industrial market solutions but are directly applicable to advanced defense systems. This article highlights the state of the art for bio patch, conformal and smart FHE products and identifies their dual use capability for defense systems. A discussion of the manufacturing base for FHE products is presented and current experimental prototype results and performance are shared.

    Nanometric biocompatible Metal-Organic Frameworks (nanoMOFs) are promising candidates for drug delivery. Up to now, most studies have targeted the intravenous route, related to pain and severe complications; whereas nanoMOFs for oral administration, a commonly used non-invasive and simpler route, remains however unexplored. We propose here the biofriendly preparation of a suitable oral nanocarrier based on the benchmarked biocompatible mesoporous iron(III) trimesate nanoparticles coated with the bioadhesive polysaccharide chitosan (CS). This method does not hamper the textural/structural properties and the sorption/release abilities of the nanoMOFs upon surface engineering. The interaction between the CS and the nanoparticles has been characterized through a combination of high resolution soft X-ray absorption and computing simulation, while the positive impact of the coating on the colloidal and chemical stability under oral simulated conditions is here demonstrated. Finally, the intestinal barrier bypass capability and biocompatibility of CS-coated nanoMOF have been assessed in vitro, leading to an increased intestinal permeability with respect to the non-coated material, maintaining an optimal biocompatibility. In conclusion, the preservation of the interesting physicochemical features of the CS-coated nanoMOF and their adapted colloidal stability and progressive biodegradation, together with their improved intestinal barrier bypass, make these nanoparticles a promising oral nanocarrier.

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

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

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

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Diner, David J. (Principal Investigator)

    The MISR Top-of-Atmosphere (TOA)/Cloud Stereo geophysical parameters include stereoscopically-derived cloud motion vectors (winds), cloud-top heights, and an accompanying cloud mask. The Stereo product geophysical parameters include a stereoscopically-derived cloud mask and cloud height on a 1.1 km grid. It also includes cloud motion vectors on a 70.4 km grid. The three types of stereo heights are: the BestWind heights are only calculated for those regions where the associated wind vectors passed the quality tests. Therefore, they have sparse coverage but since the wind correction is included, these contain our 'best guess' as to what the true heights are. The WithoutWind heights are calculated assuming a constant wind vector of zero. They have almost complete coverage and therefore form a nice 'pretty picture' of the relative cloud heights over small areas. The RawWind heights are a diagnostic product as they are calculated using all available wind vectors (even the bad ones). It is therefore recommended that one only use the Best and Without wind products. It is important to remember that the stereo matchers pick up the layer of maximum contrast, which is not necessarily the same as the highest cloud so all the stereo heights are keyed to this level of maximum contrast. Therefore, higher and thinner cirrus layers may not be detected by any of the height fields. [Location=GLOBAL] [Temporal_Coverage: Start_Date=2000-02-24; Stop_Date=] [Spatial_Coverage: Southernmost_Latitude=-90; Northernmost_Latitude=90; Westernmost_Longitude=-180; Easternmost_Longitude=180] [Data_Resolution: Latitude_Resolution=1.1 km; Longitude_Resolution=1.1 km; Horizontal_Resolution_Range=1 km - < 10 km or approximately .01 degree - < .09 degree; Temporal_Resolution=about 15 orbits/day; Temporal_Resolution_Range=Daily - < Weekly].

  15. MISR Level 2 TOA/Cloud Albedo parameters (MIL2TCAL_V2)

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Diner, David J. (Principal Investigator)

    The TOA/Cloud Albedo data contain albedo values, including finely-sampled or local (2.2 km) TOA albedos registered to the RLRA, and two coarsely-sampled (35.2 km resolution) TOA albedos projected to 30-km altitude. The local (2.2 km) albedos do not take the obscuration of cloud features into account, so they should only be treated as traditional albedos when the number of obscured pixels is low. The restrictive and expansive albedos are both available at 35.2 km resolution: the restrictive albedos are only calculated using the radiation upwelling from the pixel under consideration, whereas the expansive albedos use all the radiation emanating from the surrounding area. Therefore, the expansive albedo is closer to the traditional definition of top-of-atmosphere albedos. [Temporal_Coverage: Start_Date=2000-02-24; Stop_Date=] [Spatial_Coverage: Southernmost_Latitude=-90; Northernmost_Latitude=90; Westernmost_Longitude=-180; Easternmost_Longitude=180] [Data_Resolution: Latitude_Resolution=1.1 km; Longitude_Resolution=1.1 km; Temporal_Resolution=about 15 orbits/day].

    Wood, T. E.; Stone, W. P.

    1978-01-01

    Acrylonitrile and fluorocarbon compounds were evaluated at various temperatures and time intervals in samples of the fluid obtained from three qualified suppliers. It was concluded that both polymers can function in hydraulic fluids within the conditions defined by this study. Hydraulic fluid from each manufacturer was similar in its effect upon each given O-ring material, with one exception. Similarly, there were no striking differences in the resistance of O-rings of the same generic rubber type when provided by the different manufacturers.

    It is with some pride that the author worked in Geoffrey Slack's department from 1963 to 1967 and even retained a working relationship with him after that time. Slack was Professor of Dental Surgery (1959-1976) and later Professor of Community Dental Health (1976-1977) at The London Hospital Medical College, within the University of London. The change in titles came about as a result of recognition of his contribution to developments in public health and community dental care and services, for many of which he was directly responsible. He was Dental Dean from 1965 until 1969. Upon retirement in 1977 he became Emeritus Professor. In addition, he was Dean of the Faculty of Dental Surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons of England from 1974 to 1977.

    1986-01-01

    The Common APSE (Ada 1 Program Support Environment) Interface Set (CAIS) (DoD85) node model provides an excellent baseline for interfaces in a single-host development environment. To encompass the entire spectrum of computing, however, the CAIS model should be extended in four areas. It should provide the interface between the engineering workstation and the host system throughout the entire lifecycle of the system. It should provide a basis for communication and integration functions needed by distributed host environments. It should provide common interfaces for communications mechanisms to and among target processors. It should provide facilities for integration, validation, and verification of test beds extending to distributed systems on geographically separate processors with heterogeneous instruction set architectures (ISAS). Additions to the PROCESS NODE model to extend the CAIS into these four areas are proposed.

    This paper documents the results of a sequence of tests conducted to evaluate the DoD Computer-aided Acquisition and Logistic Support (CALS) data interchange capability of the Air Force Engineering Data Computer-Assisted Retrieval System (EDCARS). The CALS initiative specifies a standard digital interface to streamline the interchange of technical data between the DoD and the commercial sector. The CALS Test Network (CTN) is tasked to conduct tests of military standards which specify this digital interface. The testing results outlined in this report are intended to evaluate the EDCARS systems`s ability to sport CALS data interchanges and establish the level of technical data interoperability implemented at this DoD engineering data repository.

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

    SciTech Connect

    Mielke, R.L.

    1990-01-01

    In the United States of America, numerous organizations are writing standards and recommend practices for contamination control and cleanroom applications. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), the Institute of Environmental Sciences (IES), and various US Government agencies are among the organizations with a vested interest in publishing standards and recommended practices on these subjects. In the early years of contamination control and cleanroom technology, significant work was done in the US on standards and recommended practices. Proprietary standards were established by companies and other documents were produced by Federal agencies and technical organizations. In 1982, the IES began to focus on recommended practices, and the US General Services Administration (GSA) commissioned the IES to review and rewrite US Federal Standard 209 (FED-STD-209). The ASTM continues to review and update their standards on cleanroom applications on a periodic basis. Now, in 1990, US military organizations are beginning to review their cleanroom documents as well. This paper will discuss the preparation of IES Recommended Practices and Standards for contamination control and cleanroom applications. It will describe the current status of four IES Recommended Practices and two US Government documents.

    2016-04-01

    Fe-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) including MIL-101(Fe), MIL-100(Fe), MIL-53(Fe), and MIL-88B(Fe) prepared via a facile solvothermal process were introduced as both adsorbents and catalysts to generate powerful radicals from persulfate for acid orange 7 (AO7) removal in aqueous solution. Various catalysts were described and characterized by X-ray diffraction, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectra. Because of the high specific surface area of the materials, we studied the adsorption isotherms of the four MILs by the fitting of Langmuir adsorption isotherm. Meanwhile, the catalytic activities in persulfate oxidation system were investigated. The results showed that the sequence of the materials ability in the combination of adsorption and degradation was MIL-101(Fe) > MIL-100(Fe) > MIL-53(Fe) > MIL-88B(Fe), which had a close connection with the activity of metal ion in active site of the catalysts and their different cages in size. Moreover, the reactive species in MILs/persulfate system were identified as sulfate radicals and hydroxyl radicals. The reaction mechanism for persulfate activation over MILs was also studied.

    The water content of the breccia is 150 to 455 ppm, with a ??D from -580 to -870 per mil. Hydrogen gas content is 40 to 53 ppm with a ??D of -830 to -970 per mil. The CO2 is 290 to 418 ppm with S 13C = + 2.3 to + 5.1 per mil and ??18O = 14.2 to 19.1 per mil. Non-CO2 carbon is 22 to 100 ppm, ??18C = -6.4 to -23.2 per mil. Lunar dust is 810 ppm H2O (D = 80 ppm) and 188 ppm total carbon (??13C = -17.6 per mil). The 18O analyses of whole rocks range from 5.8 to 6.2 per mil. The temperature of crystallization of type B rocks is 1100?? to 1300??C, based on the oxygen isotope fractionation between coexisting plagioclase and ilmenite.

    The mixed metal(II)-aluminum phosphates MAl 6(PO 4) 12ṡ4 trenṡ17H 2O ( M=Mg 2+, Mn 2+, Co 2+) and its gallium phosphate analogs M3'Ga 6(PO 4) 12ṡ4 trenṡ17H 2O ( M=Mg 2+, Mn 2+, Fe 2+, Co 2+, Zn 2+) have been hydrothermally synthesized with the tris(2-aminoethyl)amine ( tren) as a structure-directing agent (453 K, 36 hours, autogenous pressure). The solids were characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. Their crystal structures are cubic, a≈16.8 Å and may be described in I -43m. The open-framework is built up from an enneameric unit ( T=Al or Ga / Mg, Mn, Fe, Co, Zn) containing five TO and four PO 4 tetrahedra (one of the P sbnd O bonding is terminal). A central TO tetrahedral unit shares all the corners with four phosphate groups. Two phosphate groups are connected to two other peripheral TO units. It results in the formation of a "pseudo" planar building block TP consisting of four square 4-rings. The connection of the TP units generates a three-dimensional framework, which defines a super-sodalite topology. The resulting cavities (diameter of 10 Å) are bound by 12-ring windows in which are located the tren species in interaction with the phosphate groups (mainly terminal P sbnd O bonding) through hydrogen bond. A (H 2O) 17 cluster is encapsulated in the super-sodalite cages. The Tsbnd O distances are discussed according to the ionic radii of the trivalent cations (Al, Ga) and the different divalent cations (Mg, Mn, Fe, Co, Zn).

    2016-08-31

    Magnetic ionic liquids (MILs) have recently generated a cascade of innovative applications in numerous areas of analytical chemistry. By incorporating a paramagnetic component within the cation or anion, MILs exhibit a strong response toward external magnetic fields. Careful design of the MIL structure has yielded magnetoactive compounds with unique physicochemical properties including high magnetic moments, enhanced hydrophobicity, and the ability to solvate a broad range of molecules. The structural tunability and paramagnetic properties of MILs have enabled magnet-based technologies that can easily be added to the analytical method workflow, complement needed extraction requirements, or target specific analytes. This review highlights the application of MILs in analytical chemistry and examines the important structural features of MILs that largely influence their physicochemical and magnetic properties.

  19. Pairing Relationships Among Feldspathic Lunar Meteorites from Miller Range, Antarctica

    NASA Technical Reports Server (NTRS)

    Zeigler, Ryan A.; Korotev, R. L.; Jolliff, B. L.

    2012-01-01

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

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