Measurement of oxygen extraction fraction (OEF): an optimised BOLD signal model for use with hypercapnic and hyperoxic calibration

A Merola, RG Wise & MA Germuska
Several techniques have been proposed to estimate relative changes in cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (CMRO2) by exploiting combined BOLD fMRI and cerebral blood flow data in conjunction with hypercapnic or hyperoxic respiratory challenges. More recently, methods based on respiratory challenges that include both hypercapnia and hyperoxia have been developed to assess absolute CMRO2, an important parameter for understanding brain energetics. The aim of this project is to empirically optimise a previously presented “original...

Combining the Advantages of Powder X-ray Diffraction and NMR Crystallography in Structure Determination of the Pharmaceutical Material Cimetidine Hydrochloride

AE Watts, K Maruyoshi, CE Hughes, SP Brown & KDM Harris
The crystal structure of the anhydrous phase of cimetidine hydrochloride was determined directly from powder X-ray diffraction data. The material was prepared bydehydration of the readily obtained monohydrate form of cimetidine hydrochloride, the only form for which a crystal structure has previously been reported. As such, solid-state dehydration processes typically yield the product phase as a microcrystalline powder, and structure determination was carried out directly from powder X-ray diffraction data, using the direct-space genetic algorithm...

Integrated III-V Haemocytometer: SU-8 surface treatment and analysis

A Sobiesierski, R Thomas, DJ Morgan, PM Smowton & A Moskalenko
SU-8 photoresist is used as a microfluidic structuring material. However the native SU-8 surface is too hydrophobic to enable capillary flow. The project that this dataset relates to has been the development of a two stage surface treatment that firstly renders the SU-8 surface hydrophilic and secondly stabilises the surface so that it remains hydrophilic for the longterm (in excess of three months). Contact angles images are taken using a goniometer and digital camera and...

State estimation of medium voltage distribution networks using smart meter measurements

Distributed generation and low carbon loads are already leading to some restrictions in the operation of distribution networks and higher penetrations of e.g. PV generation, heat pumps and electric vehicles will exacerbate such problems. In order to manage the distribution network effectively in this new situation, increased real-time monitoring and control will become necessary. In the future, distribution network operators will have smart meter measurements available to them to facilitate safe and cost-effective operation of...

Synthesis and Reactivity of N-Allenyl Cyanamides

James N Ayres, Matthew T J Williams, Graham J Tizzard, Simon J Coles, Kenneth B Ling & Louis C Morrill
N-Allenyl cyanamides have been accessed via a one-pot deoxycyanamidation-isomerization approach using propargyl alcohol and N-cyano-N-phenyl-p-methylbenzenesulfonamide (NCTS).
