AB  - Objectives This study aimed to experimentally validate dysregulated expression of miRNA candidates selected through updated meta-analysis of most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer and to explore their diagnostic and prognostic potential. Materials and methods Five miRNAs (miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p, miR-30a-5p and miR-139-5p) from updated meta-signature were selected for validation by qRT-PCR method in 35 oral cancer clinical specimens and adjacent non-cancerous tissue. Results Updated meta-analysis has identified 13 most commonly deregulated miRNAs in oral cancer. Seven miRNAs were consistently up-regulated (miR-21-5p, miR-31-3p, miR-135b-5p, miR-31-5p, miR-424-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-21-3p), while five were down-regulated (miR-139-5p, miR-30a-3p, miR-375-3p, miR-376c-3p and miR-30a-5p). Increased expression of miR-31-3p and miR-135b-5p, and decreased expression of miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p were confirmed in oral cancer compared to adjacent non-cancerous tissue. A three miRNAs combination (miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p) gave the most promising diagnostic potential for discriminating oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue (AUC: 0.780 [95% CI: 0.673–0.886], p < 0.0005, sensitivity 94.3%, specificity 51.4%). High expression of miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p was associated with poor survival (p = 0.003, p = 0.048, p = 0.016 respectively). Conclusion miR-31-3p, miR-139-5p and miR-30a-5p panel was confirmed as a potential diagnostic biomarker when distinguishing oral cancer from non-cancerous tissue. miR-135b-5p, miR-18a-5p and miR-30a-5p might serve as potential biomarkers of poor survival of oral cancer patients.

AB  - Objective Cholesteatoma is a challenging chronic pathology of the middle ear for which pharmacologic therapies have not been developed yet. Cholesteatoma occurrence depends on the interplay between genetic and environmental factors while master regulators orchestrating disease progression are still unknown. Therefore, in this review, we will discuss the diagnostic and therapeutic potential of non-coding RNAs (ncRNA) as a new class of regulatory molecules. Methods We have comprehensively reviewed all articles investigating ncRNAs, specifically micro RNAs (miRNAs) and long ncRNAs (lncRNA/circRNA) in cholesteatoma tissue. Results Candidate miRNA approaches indicated that miR-21 and let-7a are the major miRNAs involved in cholesteatoma growth, migration, proliferation, bone destruction, and apoptosis. Regulatory potential for the same biological processes was also observed for miR-203a. The NF-kB/miR-802/PTEN regulatory network was in relation to observed miR-21 activity in cholesteatoma as well. High throughput approaches revealed additional ncRNAs implicated in cholesteatoma pathology. Competitive endogenous RNA (ceRNA) analysis highlighted lncRNA/circRNA that could be “endogenous sponge” for miR-21 and let-7a based on the hypothesis that RNA transcripts can communicate with and regulate each other by using shared miRNA response elements. Conclusion In this review, we summarize the discoveries and role of ncRNA in major pathways in cholesteatoma and highlight the potential of miRNA-based therapeutics in the treatment of cholesteatoma.

AB  - The aim of this study was to develop antimicrobial nanocomposite textile material comprising of Cu-based nanostructures synthesized on oxidized cotton fabric using Arctostaphylos uva-ursi (L.) Spreng., Ericaceae (bearberry leaves) as a green reducing agent for adsorbed Cu2+-ions. In order to provide sufficient number of carboxyl groups for complexation with Cu2+-ions a two-step oxidation process with NaIO4 and NaClO2 was carried out. The influence of NaIO4 concentration on content of carboxyl groups and Cu-based nanoparticles was studied by FTIR and AAS. HPLC analysis identified the gallic acid known as a reducing agent in bearberry leaves extract. FESEM and XRD analyses revealed that using bearberry leaves extract and gallic acid solution as reducing agents led to a formation of spherical Cu2O/CuO nanoparticles and CuO nanosheets, respectively. These nanoparticles and nanosheets provided excellent antibacterial activity against Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli and Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. Cytotoxicity on human keratinocyte cells was shown to depend on their copper content.

AB  - Even though type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) represents a worldwide chronic health issue that affects about 462 million people, specific underlying determinants of insulin resistance (IR) and impaired insulin secretion are still unknown. There is growing evidence that chronic subclinical inflammation is a triggering factor in the origin of T2DM. Increased C-reactive protein (CRP) levels have been linked to excess body weight since adipocytes produce tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) and interleukin 6 (IL-6), which are pivotal factors for CRP stimulation. Furthermore, it is known that hepatocytes produce relatively low rates of CRP in physiological conditions compared to T2DM patients, in which elevated levels of inflammatory markers are reported, including CRP. CRP also participates in endothelial dysfunction, the production of vasodilators, and vascular remodeling, and increased CRP level is closely associated with vascular system pathology and metabolic syndrome. In addition, insulin-based therapies may alter CRP levels in T2DM. Therefore, determining and clarifying the underlying CRP mechanism of T2DM is imperative for novel preventive and diagnostic procedures. Overall, CRP is one of the possible targets for T2DM progression and understanding the connection between insulin and inflammation may be helpful in clinical treatment and prevention approaches.

AB  - This work presents a study of the applicability of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy based on infrared transversally excited atmospheric CO2 pulsed laser for quantitative analysis of main inorganic elements in lignite coals. Calibration standards were prepared by mixing and pelleting an appropriate amount of rock reference material and graphite. Time-integrated spatially resolved measurements of analyte spectra of standard samples were used to construct univariate calibration curves of Al, Si, Ca, Fe and Mg. The spectral intensities of analytical lines were normalized by the carbon spectral line to compensate for the shot-to-shot fluctuation of plasma parameters. The obtained curves of growth have good linearity in a wide range of concentrations (up to 1% for Al and 3% for Si). Correlation coefficients were in the range of 0.955–0.993, depending on the element. Measured limits of detection (from 2.4 to 25 ppm for analyzed metals and 61 ppm for Si) are low enough to control the coal combustion process in power plants. The Stark-broadening and the Boltzmann plot method were used to determine apparent values of excitation temperatures and electron number densities. A relatively small but measurable influence of the concentration of metal elements on the plasma parameters was observed, which should be considered in quantitative analysis of coal samples with higher inorganic elements content.

AB  - A calcium-pyro-hydrochar (Ca-PHC) can be distinguished as a novel sorbent of Pb2+ and Cd2+ from an aqueous solution. It was obtained using hydrothermal treatment of the spent mushroom substrate (SMS), followed by a CaCl2·5H2O activation and pyrolysis. The characterisation of chars before and after modifications was done by scanning electron microscope (SEM), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). Batch experiments were performed to examine Ca-PHC’s sorption properties and binding mechanisms to selected metal ions. The maximum sorption capacities of Ca-PHC for Pb2+ and Cd2+ were 297 mg g−1, and 131 mg g−1, respectively. The obtained results demonstrated that the sorption of Pb2+ and Cd2+ by Ca-PHC follows a pseudo-second kinetic model and Freundlich isotherm. The binding of the selected metals onto Ca-PHC was enabled by the ion-exchange mechanism, surface complexation, mineral precipitation and cation–π interaction. Thermodynamic parameters indicate that metal ions binding by Ca-PHC are spontaneous and endothermic. Due to the high adsorption capacities, the obtained Ca-PHC has good potential for application in industrial wastewater treatment. In addition, the demonstrated use of SMS highlights another possibility of applying this specific biomass relevant to sustainable and economical waste management in the growing mushroom industry.

The characterisation of chars before and after modifications was done by scanning electron microscope (SEM), Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) and Fourier transform infrared (FTIR). Batch experiments were performed to examine Ca-PHC’s sorption properties and binding mechanisms to selected metal ions. The maximum sorption capacities of Ca-PHC for Pb2+ and Cd2+ were 297 mg g−1, and 131 mg g−1, respectively. The obtained results demonstrated that the sorption of Pb2+ and Cd2+ by Ca-PHC follows a pseudo-second kinetic model and Freundlich isotherm. The binding of the selected metals onto Ca-PHC was enabled by the ion-exchange mechanism, surface complexation, mineral precipitation and cation–π interaction. Thermodynamic parameters indicate that metal ions binding by Ca-PHC are spontaneous and endothermic. Due to the high adsorption capacities, the obtained Ca-PHC has good potential for application in industrial wastewater treatment. In addition, the demonstrated use of SMS highlights another possibility of applying this specific biomass relevant to sustainable and economical waste management in the growing mushroom industry.",

AB  - All remediation pathways in aqueous solutions come down to three dominant ones - physical, chemical, and combinations thereof. Materials proposed for adsorption and oxidative degradation can induce positive or negative effects on cells compared to the pollutants themselves. Present research deals with the effects different methods for pesticide remediation have and how they impact cytotoxicity. With this particular intention, Fe-modified zeolites (obtained via citrate/oxalate complexes) of three zeotypes (MFI, BEA and FAU) were prepared and tested as adsorbents and Fenton catalysts for the removal of the acetamiprid pesticide. The materials are characterized by AFM, FTIR spectroscopy and ICP-OES. A different effect of the zeolite framework and modification route was found among the samples, which leads to pronounced adsorption (FAU), efficient Fenton degradation (MFI) or synergistic effect of both mechanisms (BEA). The cytotoxic effects of acetamiprid in the presence of zeolites, in pristine and modified forms, were tested on the MRC-5 human fibroblast cell line. A complete survey of the toxicity effect behind different pesticide removal methods is presented. Since neither adsorption nor catalytic degradation is the best option for pesticide removal, the focus is shifted to a combination of these methods, which proved to be optimal for pesticide toxicity reduction.

AB  - Pyrolytic tire (PT) chars were first produced from waste car tires (WCT) through carbonization process at 800 °C, for different retention times. Then, best PT-char sample by its physicochemical properties (WCT 800(1 h)) was further tested for its ability to adsorb Rhodamine B (RhB) dye from aqueous solutions. Structural characterization of synthesized material showed existence of graphene-based material, with average pore diameter of 22.8 nm and specific surface area of 55.8 m2·g−1. Obtained carbon material meets specifications of commercial carbon black (CB). The yield of 33.6% of CB recovered has been achieved. Under the optimal conditions, 99.57% of RhB was removed. Adsorption of RhB obeys pseudo second-order model and Langmuir isotherm model. DFT (the density functional theory) was revealed that effective bonding of RhB onto WCT 800 originates from π-electron interactions with aromatic moieties and chemical (or at least the electrostatic) interactions, between positive nitrogen and electron-rich surface groups.

AB  - The pyrolysis of [4-(hydroxymethyl)phenoxymethyl]polystyrene (Wang) resin was studied by dynamic simultaneous thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) and derivative thermogravimetry techniques. The studied resin is used as the most commonly polymer supports in the peptide synthesis. A developed experimental master plots (exp-MP) model is presented that can be used to describe in more detail the pyrolysis of the resin established upon 4-hydroxybenzyl alcohol (PHB) on polystyrene, occurring throughout TGA experiments. This model assumes that the Wang resin is pyrolyzed through three parallel independent reaction steps, whereby their separation was performed through deconvolution procedure of the complex conversion rate curves. The mechanistic nature of each stage of Wang resin pyrolysis was explained by applying a combination of kinetic models such as diffusion mechanism, random nucleation and subsequent growth and chemical reactions mechanisms. The kinetic triplet parameters obtained in the present paper were then compared with those available in the literature. Within this kinetic study, the fraction distribution analysis (via distributed reactivity model) was performed, enabling reliable prediction of liquid products produced during the pyrolysis of the solid support of the Wang resin.

AB  - The presented paper deals with the influence of the heating rate on combustion characteristics (reactivity and reactivity evaluation, ignition index (Di), burnout index (Df), the combustion performance index (S), and the combustion stability index (RW)) of the protective coronavirus face masks. Two types of commonly used face masks in different state (new and exploited) were investigated by TG-DTG analysis in an air atmosphere, directly coupled with mass spectrometry (MS). Based on the experimental results, the impact of ultimate and proximate analysis data on the evolved gas analysis (EGA) was discussed. Also, the derived values from thermo-analytical (TA) data were compared with the literature reports, related to individual constitutive face mask materials. According to the performed research, it was established that different maximal reaction rate values at various heating rates indicate the complex nature of coronavirus face mask thermo-oxidative degradation, which is stimulated with carbon oxidation reactions and volatile matter (VM) release. By detailed analysis of obtained TG-DTG profiles, it was established that process takes place through the multiple-step reaction pathways, due to many vigorous radical reactions, causes by polymers degradation. The performed research was done to evaluate the possible utilization of coronavirus waste to energy production and sustainable pandemic environmental risk reduction.

AB  - With the increased popularity of using wood stoves for household heating in recent years, numerous experimental research projects have been launched with the goal of generating cleaner and more efficient stove designs. This work is focused on mathematical modeling of combustion process in low-power residential heating appliance (small-scale stove) fuelled by different wood pellets (WP1-Beech (hardwood) and WP2-Pine (softwood)). Kinetic model scheme that encompasses determination of Arrhenius parameters was proposed for applied Finite rate/Eddy Dissipation approach. Types of wood pellets have been combusted on the experimental stand which is equipped with a set of temperature sensors and exhaust analyzer. A comparison of results obtained from combustion in the heating unit has been performed to find relations between established kinetics of devolatilization for various wood pellets and to determine exhaust composition, arising from oxidation reactions. Numerical modeling using computational fluid dynamics (CFD) has been performed for the char and CO oxidations to supplement the experimental results. Due to limitations on installed stove such as poor design, air supply, fume extraction, or heat exchanger can lead to excessive CO emissions or lower energy efficiency. Outcomes show that it is crucial to minimize unused stove volume and to enhance gaseous mixing for reduction of CO emissions, while maintaining sufficiently high temperatures for supporting fast oxidation reactions. Results of comparisons of conducted analyses can be useful in areas related to process optimization and improvement of combustion and devolatilization reaction conditions in the small scale heating units.

AB  - ObjectiveTo investigate the impact of atrial flutter (Afl) in the atrial arrhythmias classification task. We additionally advocate the use of a subject-based split for future studies in the field in order to avoid within-subject correlation which may lead to over-optimistic inferences. Finally, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the classifiers outside of the initially studied circumstances, by performing an inter-dataset model evaluation of the classifiers in data from different sources.MethodsECG signals of two private and three public (two MIT-BIH and Chapman ecgdb) databases were preprocessed and divided into 10s segments which were then subject to feature extraction. The created datasets were divided into a training and test set in two ways, based on a random split and a patient split. Classification was performed using the XGBoost classifier, as well as two benchmark classification models using both data splits. The trained models were then used to make predictions on the test data of the remaining datasets.ResultsThe XGBoost model yielded the best performance across all datasets compared to the remaining benchmark models, however variability in model performance was seen across datasets, with accuracy ranging from 70.6% to 89.4%, sensitivity ranging from 61.4% to 76.8%, and specificity ranging from 87.3% to 95.5%. When comparing the results between the patient and the random split, no significant difference was seen in the two private datasets and the Chapman dataset, where the number of samples per patient is low. Nonetheless, in the MIT-BIH dataset, where the average number of samples per patient is approximately 1300, a noticeable disparity was identified.

abstract = "ObjectiveTo investigate the impact of atrial flutter (Afl) in the atrial arrhythmias classification task. We additionally advocate the use of a subject-based split for future studies in the field in order to avoid within-subject correlation which may lead to over-optimistic inferences. Finally, we demonstrate the effectiveness of the classifiers outside of the initially studied circumstances, by performing an inter-dataset model evaluation of the classifiers in data from different sources.MethodsECG signals of two private and three public (two MIT-BIH and Chapman ecgdb) databases were preprocessed and divided into 10s segments which were then subject to feature extraction. The created datasets were divided into a training and test set in two ways, based on a random split and a patient split. Classification was performed using the XGBoost classifier, as well as two benchmark classification models using both data splits. The trained models were then used to make predictions on the test data of the remaining datasets.ResultsThe XGBoost model yielded the best performance across all datasets compared to the remaining benchmark models, however variability in model performance was seen across datasets, with accuracy ranging from 70.6% to 89.4%, sensitivity ranging from 61.4% to 76.8%, and specificity ranging from 87.3% to 95.5%. When comparing the results between the patient and the random split, no significant difference was seen in the two private datasets and the Chapman dataset, where the number of samples per patient is low. Nonetheless, in the MIT-BIH dataset, where the average number of samples per patient is approximately 1300, a noticeable disparity was identified. The accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity of the random split in this dataset of 93.6%, 86.4%, and 95.9% respectively, were decreased to 88%, 61.4%, and 89.8% in the patient split, with the largest drop being in Afl sensitivity, from 71% to 5.4%.

AB  - Despite many advantages, the practical application of fullerene C60 and curcumin (CUR) has been limited by their hydrophobic nature, deficient solubility in aqueous media and, therefore, poor bioavailability. In this study, aqueous nanoformulations containing C60 and CUR in the absence and presence of three solubility enhancers, β-cyclodextrin (CD), Tween 80 (T80) and polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP), were prepared and subjected to the antioxidant activity assessment. The content of C60 and CUR, stability, size and morphology of nanoparticles were determined using UV–vis, DLS and SEM techniques. Contrary to better solubility of pure C60 than the corresponding C60-CUR system, the solubilization of CUR in hybrid suspensions was improved compared to corresponding pure CUR suspensions, with the exception of the C60-CUR-PVP formulation. The DLS results revealed nearly monodisperse nature of CUR-T80 nanoformulation, while other ones ranged from widely dispersed to polydispersed. Depending on the type of solubilizer, similarity was observed in the particle size distributions of T80- and PVP-coated nanoformulations as well as water and CD nanoformulations. The presence of T80 differently and significantly reduces the particle size in all three nanoformulations, while PVP slightly reduces CUR-based nanoparticles but increases the size of C60 nanoparticles. Zeta potential values, ranging from − 9 mV to − 34 mV, show variation in the starting stability of nanoparticles, from unstable or relatively stable three PVP formulations and C60-T80 to highly stable CUR-T80 and C60-water. Compared to water nanoformulations as a control, SEM images of dispersant-coated nanoparticles lost the visible morphology of active components, showing variation in their morphology depending on the type of dispersant and active component used. Nanoformulations containing CUR in PVP and T80 expressed a very good antioxidant potential in DPPH radical scavenging assay, much stronger than ascorbic acid. At the same time, a moderate to high antioxidant activity in β-carotene bleaching assay was reached in PVP and T80 nanoformulations containing C60, CUR, and their noncovalent hybrid, as well. Our studies have shown that T80 and PVP colloidal systems containing C60-CUR hybrid, but also their individual components, can be used as stable antioxidant nanoformulations with potential application in the field of food and pharmacology.

AB  - Titanium-nitride (TiN) is known as a very promising plasmonic material, which offers many advantages compared to conventional metals commonly used in practical devices. Despite many improvements, TiN still suffers from high losses in the near-infrared (NIR) spectral region, making it less suitable for real-life applications. In this study, we have investigated the effects of pure silver implanted as well as silver/gold co-implanted TiN thin films on their optical properties, which we analyzed by spectroscopic ellipsometry. We demonstrate that the presence of silver and gold drastically changes both the real and imaginary part of the dielectric function. The implanted films exhibit optical losses several times lower compared to as-deposited TiN. The changes are in particular more pronounced for the samples with Au/Ag co-implantations, reaching nearly the same optical values as those of pure gold and being only slightly larger than that of silver. Thus, such an optical tuning of TiN opens new horizons and provide high potential for its implementation into plasmonic applications.

AB  - Enhanced optical properties of TiO2 thin films can be achieved by doping or coating with metals. Metal-doped TiO2 can reduce electron-hole recombination and increase hydroxyl radical concentration on the surface of TiO2, resulting in increase of the photocatalytic activity. TiO2 and TiO2-Au thin films were obtained by DC magnetron sputtering of Ti target with Ar ions in O2 atmosphere. In the case of Au buffered TiO2 thin films, two different systems were deposited for comparison. Post deposition annealing at 400 °C was carried out in nitrogen atmosphere for 3 h. The structural and optical characteristics of the prepared films were investigated in detail by the combination of high-resolution microscopic and spectroscopic techniques. The photo-degradation rate was measured using Rhodamine B which simulated pollutant. Post deposition annealing resulted in diffusion of Au atoms through the layer as it was revealed by transmission electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy. The obtained TiO2 thin films were found to be amorphous after deposition and annealing at 400 °C leads to crystallization of anatase phase. Analysis of the binding energy in the corresponding X-ray photoelectron spectra has confirmed stoichiometry of TiO2 and that concentration of Au on the surface can be controlled by sputtering and annealing conditions, thus changing optical properties by influencing the surface plasmonic nature. All Au doped TiO2 thin films exhibited enhanced wettability and photo-degradation rates when compared to pristine titania films. © 2022 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - We analyze the influence of the generalizations of hyperbolic (Cattaneo) heat equations (GCE) on temperature profile and photoacoustic signal for the two-layer samples. The GCE extensions employ fractional-order derivatives related to the anomalous thermal diffusion in solid. We compare the superdiffusive (GCEII) and subdiffusive (GCEIII) generalizations with the classical and hyperbolic results. To show the fractional-order influence on results, we analyze opaque layers of aluminum with dye by considering only the last one with the anomalous characteristic. The promising results show that minor variations in fractional order and relaxation time can influence the photoacoustic signal.

AB  - In the present paper, we discuss implementation details of a free and open-source numerical solver based on the finite volume method for numerical simulation of viscoplastic non-Newtonian fluids. In addition to the fact that they are involved in many industrial applications, both their physical properties and their rheological behavior make them challenging for numerical simulation. Viscoplastic fluids are known to behave as solid unless the shear stress reaches a critical level, known as yield-stress, beyond which they behave as liquid. In most cases, both yielded and unyielded regions coexist in the fluid domain. In mathematical model of viscoplastic fluid, the constitutive equation is a non-differentiable function. This is often overcome by using the approximate constitutive equation that has a regularized form, e.g. the Papanastasiou regularization model. Using the same approach, we assess the influence of regularization parameters on simulation convergence and results accuracy. In this study, we give implementation details of viscoplastic fluid models in freeCappuccino open-source Computational Fluid Dynamics code. Moreover, we perform validation on several well known benchmark cases and compare proposed approach with those existing in published literature. We also perform a parametric analysis and show the effect of Reynolds and Bingham numbers on the extent of the yielded regions. Conclusions of the study have relevance in practical application of computational fluid dynamics to viscoplastic fluids in particular and to non-Newtonian fluids in general. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.

Conclusions of the study have relevance in practical application of computational fluid dynamics to viscoplastic fluids in particular and to non-Newtonian fluids in general. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive license to Springer Nature Switzerland AG.",

AB  - The power transmitters, guyed masts and other lattice structures are exposed to wind action. The aerodynamic forces acting on tall tower constructions have crucial importance on the stability of the structure. The lattice structure drag coefficient determination is the subject of the international standards ESDU 81027 and 81028 and Eurocode 3 Part 3.1, but it can also be determined by numerical methods. For that purpose modelling using CFD proved to be both accurate and reliable. In this study the fluid-flow around the segment of a power transmitter was simulated by a 3-D model, where the geometry of the segment is approximated with a porous structure having the appropriate factor of porosity, in order to simplify the geometry. We have used three representative models of turbulence, standard k-? model, RNG k-? model, and Reynolds stress model. Drag coefficient values are extracted from the flow field and compared for all studied cases and with available experimental results from the wind tunnel. Simulations were performed for four wind velocities between 10 m/s and 30 m/s. The results are supplemented by the ones obtained by artificial neural network. The aim of this study is to show how the simple turbulence model coupled with approximated geometry can be used in the analysis of the aerodynamic forces acting on the lattice structure.

AB  - This paper describes the influence of thin transparent film on thermal and elastic characteristics of the two-layer sample consisting of the silicon substrate and thin TiO2 film using analysis of photoacoustic signals and their components in the 20 Hz – 20 kHz frequency domain. Through thermoelastic component changes, it was found that the thin film significantly changes the thermal state of the substrate and makes the degree of its bending increase drastically. The relationships between the thermoelastic component, the displacement along the heat flux axis and the difference of carrier density and temperatures on the different sides of the sample are described. It has been shown that the addition of a thin transparent film to a silicon substrate can effectively reduce the influence of photogenerated carriers in the substrate, especially on its degree of flexibility and restore it efficiently.

AB  - The paper presents a generalized model of the photothermal response of a polymer sample. The model is based on a linear non-Fourier heat conduction equation that considers thermal memory and complex heat capacity. The physical meaning of imaginary heat capacity is discussed from the point of view of non-equilibrium thermodynamics. The derived heat conduction equation introduces two additional dynamic properties of a medium to time-varying heat conduction: inertial and kinetic relaxation time. The influence of these relaxation times on photothermal response is analyzed. It is shown that the derived model could explain the measured photoacoustic response of different semi-crystalline polyethylenes (PEs). The obtained results show that photothermal techniques can be employed to estimate relaxation phenomena in polymeric materials when the frequency scale of the experiment is greater than the inverse value of any relaxation time. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - S and N-doped carbon dots (S-CDs and N-CDs) and their cisplatin (cis-Pt) derivatives. (S-CDs@cis-Pt and N-CDs@cis-Pt) were tested on two ovarian cancer cell lines: A2780 and A2780 cells resistant to cis-Pt (A2780R). Several spectroscopic techniques were employed to check S-CDs@cis-Pt and N-CDs@cis-Pt: solid- and solution-state nuclear magnetic resonance, matrix-assisted laser desorption, ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry, and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. In addition, synchrotron-based Fourier Transformed Infrared spectro-microscopy was used to evaluate the biochemical changes in cells after treatment with cis-Pt, S-CDs, N-CDs, or S-CDs@cis-Pt and N-CDs@cis-Pt, respectively. Computational chemistry was applied to establish the model for the most stable bond between S-CDs and N-CDs and cis-Pt. The results revealed the successful modification of S-CDs and N-CDs with cis-Pt and the formation of a stable composite system that can be used for drug delivery to cancer cells and likewise to overcome acquired cis-Pt resistance. Nanoparticle treatment of A2780 and A2780R cells led to the changes in their structure of lipids, proteins, and nucleic acids depending on the treatment. The results showed the S-CDs@cis-Pt and N-CDs@cis-Pt might be used in the combination with cis-Pt to treat the adenocarcinoma, thus having a potential to be further developed as drug delivery systems.

AB  - The essential amino acid tryptophan (Trp) undergoes catabolism through several pathways, producing biologically active metabolites that significantly impact physiological processes. The metabolic pathway responsible for the majority of Trp catabolism is the kynurenine synthesis pathway (KP). Serotonin and melatonin are among the most essential Trp pathways degradation products. It has emerged that a strong relationship exists between alterations in Trp metabolism and the onset and progression of atherosclerosis and diabetes. Atherosclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the small and medium arteries wall caused by maladaptive local immune responses, which underpins several cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Systemic low-grade immune-mediated inflammation is implicated in atherosclerosis where pro-inflammatory cytokines, such as interferon-γ (IFN-γ), play a significant role. IFN-γ upregulates the enzyme indoleamine 2,3-dioxygenase (IDO), decreasing serum levels of the Trp and increasing metabolite levels of kynurenine. Increased IDO expression and activity could accelerate the atherosclerosis process. Therefore, activated IDO inhibition could offer possible treatment options regarding atherosclerosis management. Diabetes is a chronic metabolic disease characterized by hyperglycemia that, over time, leads to severe damage to the heart, blood vessels, eyes, kidneys, and peripheral nerves. Trp serum levels and lower activity of IDO were higher in future type 2 diabetes (T2DM) patients. This article reviews recent findings on the link between mammalian Trp metabolism and its role in atherosclerosis and diabetes and outlines the intervention strategies.

AB  - The mVINIS ion source, a part of FAMA installation at Vinca Institute of Nuclear Sciences, is able to produce multiple charged heavy ion beams through the utilization of vapors created by the process of melting solids inside the miniature oven (mini-oven). The mini-oven that was used previously could only reach the maximum temperature of 800?C, which is far too low for evaporating most metals. For this purpose, a higher operating-temperature of 1500?C was needed. Our study focuses on numerical finite element method analysis of the temperature distribution of newly designed mini-oven.

AB  - The essence of this study is synthesis of a newly developed and efficient heterogeneous catalyst based on aluminum oxide support promoted with potassium iodide (KI) as active dopant responsible for pronounced catalyst activity. Modified sol–gel, reflux and hydrothermal method were used for synthesis of aluminum-oxide support using aluminum isopropoxide as a precursor. The γ-Al2O3 support and KI/γ-Al2O3 catalyst samples were examined by various experimental techniques. Effects of several operational parameters were considered and those are: methanol to sunflower oil molar ratio, catalyst loadings, reaction time and reaction stirring rate. The obtained results indicated that modified sol–gel method for synthesis of γ-Al2O3 catalyst support is the most favorable for obtaining the catalyst with superior catalytic performances in transesterification of sunflower oil. A maximum conversion (triglycerides to methyl esters) of 99.99% was achieved using the SG-KI/γ-Al2O3-770 catalyst under following optimal process parameters: 15:1 methanol to sunflower oil molar ratio, 2.5 wt% catalysts loading, 600 rpm stirring rate and 4 h of the reaction run.
