Degradation of dimethyl phthalate through Fe(II)/peroxymonosulphate heightened by fulvic acid: efficiency and possible mechanism

Yi Ding, Min Zhang, Sijie Zhou, Linbei Xie, Ao Li & Ping Wang
Ferrous iron (Fe(II)) reacts with peroxymonosulphate (PMS) to form active oxidants that can degrade refractory organic pollutants. However, the conversion rate of Fe(III) to Fe(II) is slow, which limits its actual application. In the study, the effect of fulvic acid (FA) on the degradation of dimethyl phthalate (DMP) by Fe(II)/PMS was investigated. Moreover, the degradation process of DMP was predicted by the preliminary identification of active free radicals and intermediates. As expected, FA gave rise...

Multi-period price competition of blockchain-technology-supported and traditional platforms under network effect

Ting Zhang, Peimiao Li & Ningning Wang
We build a multi-period pricing model between a blockchain-technology-supported platform and a traditional platform, where the blockchain-technology-supported platform provides a higher value for customers. Customers are influenced by network effect, that is, they value a platform more if the platform has more users. As either platform can adopt static pricing or dynamic pricing, four scenarios may occur. By deriving the equilibrium of each scenario, we reveal the 'Matthew effect' caused by network effect, that platform...

Dong Weng, Zhao-Fang Yin, Shan-Shan Chen, Xian He, Nan Li, Tao Chen, Hui Qiu, Meng-Meng Zhao, Qin Wu, Nian-Yu Zhou, Li-Qin Lu, Dan-Li Tang, Jia-Cui Song & Hui-Ping Li
Glucocorticoid (GC) hormone has been commonly used to treat systemic inflammation and immune disorders. However, the side effects associated with long-term use of high-dose GC hormone limit its clinical application seriously. GC hormone that can specifically target the lung might decrease the effective dosage and thus reduce GC-associated side effects. In this study, we successfully prepared human lung-targeting liposomal methylprednisolone crosslinked with nanobody (MPS-NSSLs-SPANb). Our findings indicate that MPS-NSSLs-SPANb may reduce the effective therapeutic dosage...
