Contamination of detained sediment in Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems

Scott Arthur
Adsorption is a key water pollution remediation measure used to achieve stormwater quality improvement in Sustainable urban Drainage Systems (SuDS). The level of contamination of detained sediment within SuDS assets is not well documented, with published investigations limited to specific contaminant occurrence in ponds, wetlands or infiltration devices (bioretention cells) and generally focused on solute or suspended sediment. Guidance on contamination threshold levels and potential deposited sediment contamination information is not included in current UK...

Surface-directed modulation of supramolecular gel properties

Mischa Zelzer & Maria Marlow
Supramolecular materials are widely studied and used for a variety of applications; in most applications, these materials are in contact with surfaces of other materials. Whilst much focus has been placed on elucidating factors that affect supramolecular material properties, the influence of the material surface on gel formation is poorly characterised. Here, we demonstrate that surface properties directly affect the fibre architecture and mechanical properties of self-assembled cytidine based gel films.

Age-related changes to human stratum corneum lipids detected using ToF-SIMS following in vivo sampling

Nichola Starr, Daniel Johnson & David Scurr
This work demonstrates the ability to detect changes in both quantity and spatial distribution of human stratum corneum (SC) lipids from samples collected in vivo. The SC functions as the predominant barrier to the body, protecting against the penetration of xenobiotic substances. Changes to the SC lipid composition have been associated with barrier impairment and consequent skin disorders and it is therefore important to monitor and quantify changes to this structure. This work demonstrates the...

Processing and properties of PLA-HA nanocomposites: the effect of particle morphology and dispersants

Magdalena M. Tomczynska, Davide De Focatiis, Michael Ward, Gabriel Y. H. Choong, Alessia Canciani, Kirsty Walton, David M. Grant, Derek J. Irvine & Andrew J. Parsons
The load bearing capacity of biodegradable polymeric medical devices remains limited; an improvement in mechanical properties is desirable to widen the range of applications. Incorporation of nanoparticles is explored to increase the mechanical properties of the base matrix whilst maintaining desirable polymeric processing routes. Various nanomaterials have been investigated for polylactic acid (PLA) reinforcement for orthopaedic applications; hydroxyapatite (HA), the main inorganic constituent of bone, is one of the most promising bioresorbable nanofillers. However, uncoated...

In vitro lipolysis/microsomal metabolism approach for the prediction of oral bioavailability of BCS II drugs in lipidic formulations

Pavel Gershkovich & Paloma Benito
Lipidic formulations (LFs) are increasingly utilized for the delivery of drugs that belong to class II of the Biopharmaceutics Classification System (BCS). The current work proposes, for the first time, the combination of in vitro lipolysis and microsomal metabolism studies for the quantitative prediction of human oral bioavailability of BCS II drugs administered in LFs. Marinol® and Neoral® were selected as model LFs and their observed oral bioavailabilities (Fobserved) obtained from published clinical studies in...

Supramolecular heterostructures formed by sequential epitaxial deposition of two-dimensional hydrogen-bonded arrays

Vladimir Korolkov, Matteo Baldoni, Takashi Taniguchi, Kenji Watanabe, Elena Besley & Peter Beton
Supramolecular heterostructures are formed by growing sequential layers of bi- and mono-component two-dimensional molecular arrays stabilized by hydrogen bonding. The heterostructures are formed on hexagonal boron nitride by depositing cyanuric acid/melamine (CA.M) followed by terephthalic acid (TPA) or trimesic acid (TMA) and imaged using atomic force microscopy under ambient conditions with resolution approaching 0.1 nm. A clear epitaxial arrangement is observed between these layers having intrinsically distinct symmetries and lattice constants, which for TMA/CA.M corresponds...

Illness beliefs predict mortality in patients with diabetic foot ulcers

Kavita Vedhara
Background: Patients’ illness beliefs have been associated with glycaemic control in diabetes and survival in other conditions. Objective: We examined whether illness beliefs independently predicted survival in patients with diabetes and foot ulceration. Methods: Patients (n=169) were recruited between 2002 and 2007. Data on illness beliefs were collected at baseline. Data on survival were extracted on 1st November 2011. Number of days survived reflected the number of days from date of recruitment to 1st November...

The Adsorption of hexacontane on hexagonal boron nitride

Juan Diez, Vladimir Korolkov & Peter Beton
We have investigated the adsorption of hexacontane (C60 H122) on hexagonal boron nitride (hBN) using atomic force microscopy (AFM). The molecules can be deposited either by sublimation or from solution and form lamellar rows with dimensions of the order of 0.1 - 1 µm in three different rotational domains. High-resolution AFM images reveal that, similar to alkanes on graphite, the molecules are adsorbed parallel to the lattice vectors of hBN and we show using molecular...

Resonant Zener tunnelling via zero-dimensional states in a narrow gap diode

Amalia Patane & Davide Maria Di Paola
The data contains measured current-voltage characteristics and simulated energy band profiles describing Zener tunnelling via zero-dimensional states in a narrow gap diode. In our devices, a narrow quantum well of the mid-infrared (MIR) alloy In(AsN) is placed in the intrinsic (i) layer of a p-i-n diode. The incorporation of nitrogen in the quantum well creates states that are localized on nanometer lengthscales. These levels provide intermediate states that act as “stepping stones” for electrons tunnelling...

Raw data for new compounds described in the paper: "Enantioselective synthesis of chiral cyclopent-2-enones by nickel-catalyzed desymmetrization of malonate esters"

Hon Wai Lam
Raw data for new compounds described in the paper: "Enantioselective Synthesis of Chiral Cyclopent-2-enones by Nickel-Catalyzed Desymmetrization of Malonate Esters". The enantioselective synthesis of highly functionalized chiral cyclopent-2-enones by the reaction of alkynyl malonate esters with arylboronic acids is described. These desymmetrizing arylative cyclizations are catalyzed by a chiral phosphinooxazoline–nickel complex, and cyclization is enabled by the reversible E/Z isomerization of alkenylnickel species. The general methodology is also applicable to the synthesis of 1,6-dihydropyridin-3(2H)-ones.

Office workers' perceived barriers and facilitators to taking regular micro-breaks at work: full result table

Yitong Huang
Research has suggested regular breaks in sedentary office workers are important for health, wellbeing and long-term productivity. Although there exist many computerized break reminders, few are based on user needs and requirements as determined by formative research. This is the result table from a diary-probed interview study with 20 office workers on their perceived barriers and facilitators to taking regular micro-breaks at work.

Data for paper: Dispersive detection of radio-frequency dressed states, arxiv:1801.07016

Thomas Fernholz
We introduce a method to dispersively detect alkali atoms in radio-frequency dressed states. In particular, we use dressed detection to measure populations and population differences of atoms prepared in their clock states. Linear birefringence of the atomic medium enables atom number detection via polarisation homodyning, a form of common path interferometry. In order to achieve low technical noise levels, we perform optical sideband detection after adiabatic transformation of bare states into dressed states. The balanced...
