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. Level of Evidence: NA.

AB  - The surface of a titanium-based alloy Ti6Al4V was subjected to modifications by a near-IR femtosecond Ti:Sapphire laser, emitting at 775 nm pulses of 200 fs duration, in single-pulse and multi-pulse regimes, with up to 400 accumulated pulses, and pulse energies ranging from 2.5 to 250 $$\upmu $$J. The whole range of induced effects is presented, from gentle ablation and pattern occurrence to substantial crater formation. Very observable laser-induced parallel periodic surface structures are reported, appearing both within the damage spot area, with low fluences, and at the peripheries of the craters, with higher fluences—but also on crater walls, and inside the crater structures. Damage threshold fluences $$({F}_{\mathrm{th}})$$and the incubation factor $$(\zeta )$$were also determined.

AB  - ObjectivesGalectin-3 affects a variety of biological processes. It is encoded by LGALS-3, located in unique haplotype block in Caucasians. Most of the studies regarding the gal-3 role in atherosclerosis are focused exclusively on protein/mRNA levels. Genetic analyses of LGALS-3 are scarce. We sought to thoroughly examine the genetic background of gal-3 and to analyze tag variants that cover more than 80% variability of the LGALS-3 containing hap-block in association with carotid plaque presence (CPP). According to Tagger server, rs4040064 G/T, rs11628437 G/A and rs7159490 C/T cover 82% (r2 > 0.8) of the genetic variance of this hap-block. Our aims were to investigate possible association of rs4040064, rs11628437 and rs7159490 haplotypes with CPP in patients with advanced carotid atherosclerosis (CA) and to analyze their possible effect on LGALS-3 mRNA expression in carotid plaques.Materials and methodsStudy group consisted of 468 patients and 296 controls. Rs4040064, rs11628437, rs7159490 and LGALS-3 mRNA expression were detected by TaqMan® technology.ResultsWe have found that haplotype TAC was associated with the cerebrovascular insult (CVI) occurrence (OR = 1.68, 95% CI = 1.09-2.58, p = 0.02), compared to the referent haplotype. OR was adjusted for hypertension, age and BMI. TAC also showed higher, but not statistically significant, LGALS-3 expression in carotid plaques.ConclusionsOur results suggest that rs4040064, rs11628437 and rs7159490 bear no association with CPP, neither they affect LGALS-3 mRNA in carotid plaques. However, we showed a significant association of haplotype TAC with the CVI occurrence in CA patients from Serbia. Replication and validation of our results are required.

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  - Di(meth)acrylate (D(M)A) systems with pendant oligo(ethylene glycol) (OEG) chains are promising biomedical candidates. Homopolymeric P(OEG)D(M)A hydrogels have significant thermoresponsiveness demonstrated mainly at elevated temperatures which makes this class of materials unsuitable for bio-applications. Copolymerisation with less hydrophilic 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) was performed in an effort to shift volume phase transition (VPT) closer to physiological temperatures and to widen their application as thermoresponsive materials. Various monomer-solvent mixtures, consisting of different mole ratios of OEGDMA and HEMA monomers (100/0, 50/50, 27.5/72.5, and 12.5/87.5) and water/ethanol as solvent, were exposed to gamma radiation up to 6, 12, 25, and 50 kGy. Furthermore, in an attempt to obtain multi- (thermo- and pH-) responsive hydrogels for biomedical applications new P(OEGDMA/HEMA/IA) terpolymers containing a small share (2.5, and 5 wt%) of itaconic acid (IA) were synthesised. The successful fabrication of the hydrogels was confirmed by gel measurements and FTIR spectroscopy. Swelling measurements indicated that obtained networks possessed tuneable thermal behaviour and swelling properties which could be significantly altered by hydrogel composition. The porous architecture was investigated using SEM, confirming swelling results. Cytotoxicity revealed relatively high cell viability for all hydrogels, indicating satisfactory in vitro biocompatibility. Therefore, new OEGDMA based hydrogels showed potential for biomedical applications.

AB  - In order to compare alpha-particle and gamma-ray spectrometry, the activity concentrations of 235U, 238U and 226Ra in samples of coal, slag and fly-ash from the thermal power plant “Nikola Tesla A”, Serbia, were determined by these two methods. Methods were compared and discussed from the point of view of its precision, difficulty to apply and complexity. Gamma-ray spectrometry was performed with HPGe (High Purity Germanium) spectrometer, while alpha activity was measured by PIPS (Passivated Implanted Planar Silicon) detector. For the alpha-particle spectrometry, the chemical procedures applied were chromatographic resin extraction for uranium isotopes and micro-coprecipitation for 226Ra. Thin alpha sources were prepared by electrodeposition and filtration through polypropylene membrane filter for uranium determination, while filtration technique was performed for radium sources. For the evaluation of the statistical difference between individual measurement results obtained by application of two methods Z - test was used. In order to evaluate the difference between two methods used, paired samples t-test and F-test were applied. Results show that there is no statistical difference between two methods used and that gamma-ray spectrometry is a valid alternative to time consuming alpha spectrometry.

Thin alpha sources were prepared by electrodeposition and filtration through polypropylene membrane filter for uranium determination, while filtration technique was performed for radium sources. For the evaluation of the statistical difference between individual measurement results obtained by application of two methods Z - test was used. In order to evaluate the difference between two methods used, paired samples t-test and F-test were applied. Results show that there is no statistical difference between two methods used and that gamma-ray spectrometry is a valid alternative to time consuming alpha spectrometry.",

AB  - The need for stable, chemical resistant and conductive materials is on the rise in recent times. Graphene shows promising electrical conductivity and chemical stability, but the production of a continual, conductive layer is limited and expensive. Silver nanowires (AgNWs) are both conducive and economically viable, but they are sensitive to water and oxygen. In this study, graphene oxide (GO) and AgNWs were synthesized and combined in different mass ratios (3:1, 2.5:1.5, and 1:1) to obtain chemically stable composites with improved electrical properties. Composites were reduced using ascorbic acid. With the increase of AgNWs to GO mass ratio, the surface of the free-standing composite film improved: the root mean square roughness was lowered from 376 nm for GO to 168 nm for the composite with the mass ratio of GO:AgNWs 1:1, while the sheet resistance was lowered from 146 × 106 Ω/□ to 4 Ω/□. For the first time, the effects of gamma irradiation on the structure of the composites were studied. Doses of 15, 25, and 35 kGy were applied.

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.

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 analytical potential of LIBS for the analysis of liquid solutions was evaluated using two experimental setups, one based on a TEA CO2 laser and the other in which Nd:YAG laser was used. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) was used as a substrate on which a 10 μL drop of analyte solutions with different concentrations of analyte elements, Be, Cr, Ni, Co, Pb, Tl, and V, were deposited and dried. The samples were deposited either directly on the PTFE or over the pre-deposited layer of copper oxide nanoparticles to study the influence of nanoparticles (NPs) on the ablation and plasma excitation. The obtained results imply that the presence of Cu oxide NPs does not significantly affect the analytical performance of LIBS based on TEA CO2 laser for analysis of solutions. At the same time, it was shown that plasma created by TEA CO2 laser radiation efficiently excited ablated material, making metal elements detectable in the sub-ppm concentration range. On the other hand, Cu oxide NPs significantly influence the formation and the analytical properties of plasma induced by Nd:YAG laser. Without the presence of NPs, the intensities of analyte lines were very low, unsuitable for spectrochemical analysis. At the optimal surface concentration of NPs, 0.36 mg/cm2, the intensity of analyte lines was increased more than ten times. Limits of detection of Be and Cr were 5.3 ppb and 33 ppb, with good linearity of curves of growth.

AB  - The interaction of a Transversely Excited Atmospheric (TEA) CO2 laser with a polymer polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) sample in a vacuum ambiance was studied. The main goal was to demonstrate the feasibility of laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) to detect hydrogen. The generation of plasma over the PMMA surface, using a low laser intensity of ∼ 48 MW/cm2 and fluence of ∼ 16.5 J/cm2, required the application of a metal sub-target. Besides hydrogen, the recorded spectra were dominated by atomic lines of carbon and oxygen and band emission of the C2 and CN molecules. The electron number density and temperature (ionic, vibrational, and rotational) were evaluated to characterize the laser-induced plasma. In addition, PMMA micro-damages (diameter ∼ 45 µm) created by a multipulse laser ablation could find potential applications in sensor technologies.

AB  - Cr3+-doped Mg2SiO4 orthorhombic nanoparticles are synthesized by a combustion method. The 3d3 electron configuration of the Cr3+ ion results in the deep-red emission from optical transitions between d-d orbitals. Two overlapping emissions from the Cr3+ spin-forbidden 2Eg→ 4A2g and the spin-allowed 4T2g→ 4A2g electronic transitions are influenced by the strong crystal field in Mg2SiO4 and, thus, are suitable for ratiometric luminescence thermometry. The temperature-induced changes in Cr3+-doped Mg2SiO4 emission are tested for use in luminescence thermometry from cryogenic to physiologically relevant temperatures (10-350 K) by three approaches: (a) temperature-induced changes of emission intensity; (b) temperature-dependent luminescence lifetime; and (c) temperature-induced changes of emission band position. The second approach offers applicable thermometry at cryogenic temperatures, starting from temperatures as low as 50 K, while all three approaches offer applicable thermometry at physiologically relevant temperatures with relative sensitivities of 0.7% K-1 for emission intensity, 0.8% K-1 for lifetime and 0.85% K-1 for band position at 310 K. © 2021 IOP Publishing Ltd.

AB  - Results concerning the controllable ablation of nano-layered thin films (NLTF) by femtosecond laser pulses are presented. Investigated samples were titanium-aluminum bilayers, deposited on a silicon substrate, with the top titanium or aluminum layer of variable thickness on the surface. Irradiation was done in ambient air with single femtosecond laser pulses under standard laboratory conditions. The samples were analyzed by complementary methods of optical and scanning electron microscopy and optical profilometry, exhibiting laser-fluence-dependent ablative removal either of the top layer or the entire bilayer or even partial ablation of the underlying silicon substrate. The removal (spallation) threshold fluences for the topmost layer are scalable versus its thickness almost irrespectively of its material, being rather selective for the Ti-coated samples and much less selective for the Al-coated samples. The removal of the entire bilayers was found to be strongly influenced by electronic properties of the underlying metallic layer, dictating the NLTF-Si adhesion, heat conduction, and capacity in the NLTFs toward the NLTF-Si interface and beyond, as well as by their thermophysical characteristics, e.g., almost twice higher melting temperature and enthalpy for Ti. As a result, precise fs-laser machining of the entire NLTFs is pronounced and selective for the samples with the fusible Al at the low-adhesion Al-Si interfaces, compared with the incomplete NLTF removal from the high-adhesion and refractory Ti-Si interfaces.

AB  - Results regarding morphological and compositional changes of bimetallic thin film (BMTF), composed of aluminium (Al) and titanium (Ti) nano-layers, by single fs laser pulses, are presented. Laser irradiation was conducted in the air with focused, linearly polarized laser pulses, the duration being 300 fs, wavelength 515 nm, and pulse energy up to 1.2μJ. Effects of the variations of the pulse energy on the changes were studied. In the experiment, single pulse energy values from 0.03 to 0.08 μ J caused ablation–photomechanical spallation of the upper part of BMTF layer from the Si substrate, without ablation of the whole film. Irradiation at higher pulse energies gradually removed the whole BMTF and even a part of the Si substrate. We explained the influence of different electron–phonon dynamics, in the case of multilayered thin films composed of Al and Ti, on BMTF ablation. Damage/ablation threshold, which is minimal pulse energy/fluence sufficient for starting ablation, was calculated.

AB  - The aim of this study was to demonstrate the potential of Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) in the analysis of pottery shards, which are commonly the most abundant artefacts recovered at archaeological sites. The analytical capability of LIBS in identification of elements characteristic to inorganic pigments used for decoration was assessed. Based on the specific elements detected in the LIBS spectra of glazes, correlations between the elemental composition of the glaze and the colours of the glazed surface were established. The results were in accordance with the previously reported Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) and Raman analyses of some of the samples, and with the presently performed XRF analysis. Two important parameters for plasma characterization, temperature and electron number density, were estimated from the spectral data. A potential use of LIBS for depth profiling was also investigated by analysing the silicon to aluminium intensity ratio as a function of the number of laser shots applied. Profilometry analysis of the damages created on the glazed surfaces by laser shots was used to estimate the average ablation depth and ablated mass.

AB  - The benefits of walnut (Juglans regia) consumption for metabolic health are known, but the molecular background underlying their putative antioxidant and anti-inflammatory/immunomodulatory effects is underexplored. We assessed that walnut supplementation (6 weeks) reverted unfavorable changes of the SIRT1/FoxO3a/MnSOD/catalase axis in the heart induced by fructose-rich diet (FRD). Intriguingly, Nox4 was increased by both FRD and walnut supplementation. FRD increased the cytosolic fraction and decreased the nuclear fraction of the uniquely elucidated ChREBP in the heart. The ChREBP nuclear fraction was decreased in control rats subjected to walnuts. In addition, walnut consumption was associated with a reduction in systolic BP in FRD and a decrease in fatty acid AA/EPA and AA/DHA ratios in plasma. In summary, the protective effect of walnut supplementation was detected in male rats following the fructose-induced decrease in antioxidative/anti-inflammatory capacity of cardiac tissue and increase in plasma predictors of low-grade inflammation. The current results provide a novel insight into the relationship between nutrients, cellular energy homeostasis, and the modulators of inflammatory/immune response in metabolic syndrome, emphasizing the heart and highlighting a track for translation into nutrition and dietary therapeutic approaches against metabolic disease.

AB  - Glutathione S-transferases (GSTs) are the family of enzymes involved in the second line of defense against oxidative stress (OS). The lack of GSTT1/GSTM1 enzyme quantity or activity, due to the presence of homozygous deletion compromises antioxidative defense resulting in OS. OS is the critical mechanism in the pathophysiology of atherosclerosis, coronary artery disease, and myocardial infarction (MI). The increase in reactive oxygen species together with the process of apoptosis plays a role in left ventricular remodeling (LVR) after MI. The associations of GSTT1 and GSTM1 gene polymorphisms with the risk of MI are inconsistent. The aim was to analyze the association of GSTT1/GSTM1 null genotypes with first MI and LVR 8 months after the MI. The study involved 330 controls and 438 consecutive patients with symptoms and signs of first MI. The subgroup of 150 MI patients was prospectively followed up for 6 months. Evidence of maladaptive LVR was obtained by 2D Doppler echocardiography 3-5 days and 6 months after the MI. A multiplex polymerase chain reaction was used to detect the deletion in GSTT1 and GSTM1 genes. GSTM1 null genotype was significantly and independently associated with first MI (adjusted OR = 1.45 95% CI 1.03-2.03, p = 0.03). Association of double null genotypes with maladaptive LVR in patients 6 months after the first MI was no longer significant after adjustment for factors that differed significantly between patients with and without maladaptive LVR. This study demonstrated the association of GSTM1 null genotypes with the risk of MI in the Serbian population.

AB  - Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is associated with alterations in DNA methylation and polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) profile, both modulated by dietary polyphenols. The present parallel, placebo-controlled study (part of the original clinical study registered as NCT02800967 at www.clinicaltrials.gov) aimed to determine the impact of 4-week daily consumption of polyphenol-rich Aronia melanocarpa juice (AMJ) treatment on Long Interspersed Nucleotide Element-1 (LINE-1) methylation in peripheral blood leukocytes and on plasma PUFAs, in subjects (n = 54, age range of 40.2 ± 6.7 years) at moderate CVD risk, including an increased body mass index, central obesity, high normal blood pressure, and/or dyslipidemia. The goal was also to examine whether factors known to affect DNA methylation (folate intake levels, MTHFR C677T gene variant, anthropometric and metabolic parameters) modulated the LINE-1 methylation levels upon the consumption of polyphenol-rich aronia juice. Experimental analysis of LINE-1 methylation was done by MethyLight method. MTHFR C677T genotypes were determined by the polymerase chain reaction–restriction fragment length polymorphism method, and folate intake was assessed by processing the data from the food frequency questionnaire. PUFAs were measured by gas–liquid chromatography, and serum lipid profile was determined by using Roche Diagnostics kits. The statistical analyses were performed using Statistica software package. In the comparison after vs. before the treatment period, in dyslipidemic women (n = 22), we observed significant decreases in LINE-1 methylation levels (97.54 ± 1.50 vs. 98.39 ± 0.86%, respectively; P = 0.01) and arachidonic acid/eicosapentaenoic acid ratio [29.17 ± 15.21 vs. 38.42 (25.96–89.58), respectively; P = 0.02]. The change (after vs. before treatment) in LINE-1 methylation directly correlated with the presence of MTHFR 677T allele, average daily folate intake, and the change in serum low-density lipoprotein cholesterol but inversely correlated with the change in serum triacylglycerols (R = 0.72, R2 = 0.52, adjusted R2 = 0.36, P = 0.03). The current results imply potential cardioprotective effects of habitual polyphenol-rich aronia juice consumption achieved through the modifications of DNA methylation pattern and PUFAs in subjects at CVD risk, which should be further confirmed. Hence, the precision nutrition-driven modulations of both DNA methylation and PUFA profile may become targets for new approaches in the prevention of CVD.

AB  - Interventional procedures in radiology and cardiology are associated with high dose to the patient. Accurate dosimetry is essential and calibration of the equipment is a means to provide the necessary accuracy of dose assessment. The objective of this work is to investigate the performance of dosimeters used in interventional procedures in different standard and non-standard X-ray radiation qualities, and to investigate potential uncertainties related to dose measurements, thus improving accuracy of patient dosimetry in interventional procedures. Four new reference radiation qualities dedicated to interventional cardiology applications have been established, allowing calibration of dosimeters used in clinical conditions with appropriate traceability to primary standards. Testing of solid-state semiconductor detectors and thermoluminescent dosimeter properties, e.g. influence of photon energy, angle of incidence and dose rate, was performed in the standard and non-standard radiation qualities. Both dosimeter types showed good performance in the non-standard beams during all performance tests. Solid-state dosimeters displayed weak dependence on energy, angle of incidence and dose rate, in the range defined by the manufacturer and requirements of the international standard. Thermoluminescent dosimeters displayed excellent linearity and angular dependence. The influence of energy dependence on measurement uncertainty can be reduced if appropriate radiation quality is selected for calibration. © 2021 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - Liverworts are characterized by a high content of bioactive compounds reported to show antimicrobial, anticancer, and antioxidant properties. In this study, the biological effects of the methanol extract of the liverwort Pellia endiviifolia and its constituents, bis-bibenzyls perrottetin E, 10′-hydroxyperrottetin E, and 10,10′-dihydroxyperrottetin E, were investigated using human peripheral blood cells as a model system. The assessment of the investigated compounds comprised testing their genotoxicity, apoptotic potential, and redox modulating activities. The genotoxicity testing indicated that medium (25 µM) and high concentrations (100 µM) of the investigated compounds displayed genotoxic and antiproliferative effects in human lymphocytes as revealed by significant, concentration-dependent enhancement of the micronuclei incidence and decrease in the cytokinesis-block proliferation index compared to the control (P <.001). Analysis of leukocyte apoptosis showed a substantial potential of all investigated compounds to induce apoptosis, which was not concentration-dependent. The P endiviifolia extract and perrottetin E demonstrated considerable pro-apoptotic potential, even at the lowest concentration (1 µM) applied. Evaluation of the redox modulating effects, which comprised measuring erythrocyte catalase activity and the lymphocyte malondialdehyde level, showed that the investigated compounds did not induce oxidative stress in human peripheral blood cells (P >.05). The observed genotoxic, antiproliferative, and proapoptotic effects of the investigated compounds make them suitable for further comprehensive studies related to their possible applications as anticancer agents.

AB  - The COVID-19 infectious disease in 2020 caused a global and subsequent lockdown policies imposed by various governments. Public libraries were affected as well. For many public libraries, the only one that remained active and available to users was access to their digital content. The Njegoš public library in Knjaževac, Serbia, responded by improving access to, and promoting, its vast digital content. The library also monitored access to the digital library, hypothesizing that the conclusions from the statistical data would bring insights and future improvements. The statistical data from the website of the public library revealed users’ most popular times of day and days of the week during the pandemic and in normal times. Regarding the devices used for access, there was a trend toward more up-to-date operating systems and also toward mobile devices. The average time reading increased by approximately 130%, with the highest peak during the most restrictive lockdown in March 2020. Thus, digital library servers should have the capacity to handle such increases in network traffic, at increased download speeds. Library posts on social media, specifically Facebook, were viewed an order of magnitude times during the pandemic when compared with posts from the previous year. Thus, social media posts were an effective pathway for promoting the digital library during the pandemic-induced lockdown. © 2021 Jelena Ćirić, Aleksandar Ćirić 89101.

For all the investigated isotopes, there is a tendency that, on average, the lowest activity concentrations were found in tree stems, then in leaves, while the highest ones were in the soil. Statistical analysis did not show any differences between activity concentrations of leaves and needles, showing that both leaves and needles could be equally well used as a biomonitors.

AB  - Da bi se postigla tačnost i preciznost dobijenih rezultata pri gamaspektrometrijskom merenju uzoraka iz životne sredine neophodno je obezbediti odgovarajuće kalibracione standarde. Imajući u vidu da i sami standardi vremenom gube na kvalitetu zbog degradacije matriksa, od izuzetne je važnosti praćenje stabilnosti standarda koji se koriste. U ovom radu prikazani su rezultati ispitivanja karakteristika krivih efikasnosti u odnosu na starenje matriksa. Napravljeni su radni kalibracioni standardi sa tri različita matriksa (aktivni ugalj, zemlja i pesak), upakovani u cilindričnu geometriju kutijice od 120 ml i 250 ml i mereni na poluprovodničkom HPGe detektoru. Isti standardi ponovo su mereni nakon četiri godine u kontakt geometriji u odnosu na detektor i izvrnuto sa poklopcem kutijice ka detektoru. Analiza dobijenih rezultata pokazala je odstupanja u vrednostima efikasnosti, što ukazuje na degradaciju svih standarda u smislu narušavanja njihove homogenosti.

AB  - The gammaspectrometric measurement of the environmental samples requires the use of appropriate calibration standards in order to achieve the accuracy and precision of the obtained results. Taking into account that the standards lose their quality over time due to the degradation of the matrix, it is extremely important to keep tracking their stability. Comprehensive reconsideration on efficiency curves with respect to the ageing of calibration standards is presented in this paper. Spiked laboratory standards of different matrices (active coal, soil and sand) were prepared in two measurement geometries, PVC cylindrical 120 ml and 250 ml boxes. The same standards were measured after four years in contact geometry on the detector and upside down (box cover towards the detector). The analysis of the obtained results showed discrepancies in efficiency values and it indicates that the homogeneity of standards is disturbed. Such standards are not reliable for use.

Dobijeni rezultati su u rasponu od 0.36 do 0.7, što je u proseku veće od preporučene vrednosti od 0.4. Na istim lokacijama su izvršena interkomparativna merenja koncentracije radona (uređajima Alpha Guard Pro, RAD7 i RTM1688-2), ravnotežne ekvivalentne koncentracije radona (uređajima RNWL i RPM2200) i radonskog ravnotežnog faktora. Slaganje rezultata je testirano Z-testom koji ukazuje da ne postoji statistički značajno odstupanje između rezultata dobijenih različitim mernim uređajima, odnosno ne postoji nekonzistentnost između različitih metodologija merenja kao ni potrebe za harmonizacijom različitih procedura merenja.
AB  - In this contribution, the results of radon equilibrium factor measurement in selected dwelling and workplaces in Montenegro and Serbia are presented. Radon equilibrium factor was derived from measurements of indoor radon concentration and equilibrium equivalent radon concentration. Measurements were performed one day for each of 5 locations by using different active devices. Obtained radon equilibrium factors range from 0.36 to 0.7 which is in average larger than worldwide average of 0.4 Results are not surprising since measuring locations were kept closed during the measuring time, reducing therefore ventilation rate which as a consequence has an increase of equilibrium factor. Individual measuring results of indoor radon concentrations, equilibrium equivalent radon concentrations and radon equilibrium factors obtained with different detectors systems from 2 research teams was tested using Z – test. Obtained Z – score for each measurement vas below critical value, indication that there is no statistical difference between different measuring devices.

AB  - Glavni izvori aerozagađenja u Srbiji su energetski sektor u koji spadaju termoelektrane, toplane i pojedinačno grejanje domaćinstava, potom transportni sektor i industrijska aktivnost (rafinerije nafte, hemijska industrija, rudarstvo i sl.). Procenjeno je da je broj preranih smrti izazvanih aerozagađenjem u Srbiji, među najvećima u Evropi. Najvažniji parametri za praćenje su koncentracija čestica i njihova raspodela u veličini. Uzorkovanje suspendovanih čestica atmosfere (particulate matter - PM) frakcionisanih po veličini sprovedeno je u periodu od marta 2012. godine do decembra 2013. godine u suburbanom delu Beograda na pozadinskoj mernoj stanici Zeleno brdo, kao receptorskom mestu. Svaki šesti dan uziman je po jedan usrednjeni 48-časovni uzorak aerosolnih čestica razdvojenih na jedanaest intervala aerodinamičkih prečnika čestica (particle diameter - Dp) pomoću kaskadnog impaktora niskog pritiska prof. dr. Bernera - LPI 25/0,0085/2 u opsegu veličine čestica (0,0085 μm < Dp< 16 μm). Tehnika mikrotalasne digestije korišćena je za razaranje sakupljenog depozita aerosolnih čestica iz šest krupnijih frakcija (0,27 μm < Dp< 16 μm). Koncentracije 25 ispitivanih elemenata su određene primenom indukovano spregnute plazme sa masenom spektrometrijom. Najzastupljeniji elementi u ispitivanom aerosolu su bili Ca, Fe, Al, K i Mg. Najveći procentualni udeo As, Cd, K, Pb i Sb bio je prisutan u frakcijama čestica finog moda, dok su u grubom modu dominirali Al, Ba, Ca, Cr, Fe, Mg, Mn i Ti. Naknadno je vršena i gama spektrometrijska analiza uzoraka. Jedan deo ispitivanja je obuhvatao merenje svake od 11 frakcija posebno, a drugi deo analizu svih 11 frakcija odjednom. Takođe, merene su i aktivnosti više različitih uzoraka iste frakcije. U spektru su nađeni u tragovima prirodni radionuklidi, dok radionuklidi veštačkog porekla nisu detektovani. U radu su diskutovane istražene korelacije dobijenih rezultata koncentracije aktivnosti radionuklida sa dominantnim elementarnim sastavom i dijametrom čestica, kao i moguće poreklo aerozagađenja.
AB  - The main sources of air pollution in Serbia are the energy sector, which includes thermal power plants, heating plants and individual heating of households, then the transport sector and industrial activity (oil refineries, chemical industry, mining, etc.). It is estimated that the number of premature deaths caused by air pollution in Serbia is among the highest in Europe. The most important parameters for monitoring are the concentration of particles and their size distribution. Sampling of suspended atmospheric particles (particulate matter - PM) fractionated by size was conducted in the period from March 2012 to December 2013 in the suburban part of Belgrade at the background measuring station Zeleno brdo, as a receptor site. Every sixth day, one averaged 48-hour sample of aerosol particles was taken, separated into eleven intervals of aerodynamic particle diameters (Dp) using a low-pressure cascade impactor prof. dr. Berner–LPI \25 /0.0085 /2. The microwave digestion technique was used to destroy the collected aerosol particle deposit from the six tested size ranges: 0.27 ≤ Dp ≤ 0.53 μm, 0.53 ≤ Dp ≤ 1.06 μm, 1.06 ≤ Dp ≤ 2.09 μm, 2.09 ≤ Dp ≤ 4.11 μm, 4.11 ≤ Dp ≤ 8.11 μm and 8.11≤ Dp ≤ 16 μm. Concentrations of 25 test elements were determined using induced conjugated plasma by mass spectrometry. The most common elements in the tested aerosol were Ca, Fe, Al, K and Mg. The highest percentage of As, Cd, K, Pb and Sb was present in the fractions of fine mode particles, while in the coarse mode Al, Ba, Ca, Cr, Fe, Mg, Mn and Ti dominated. Subsequently, gamma spectrometric analysis of the samples was performed. One part of the study included the measurement of each of the 11 fractions separately, and the other part the analysis of all 11 fractions at once. Also, the activities of several different samples of the same fraction were measured. Traces of natural radionuclides were found in the spectrum, while radionuclides of artificial origin were not detected. The paper discusses the investigated correlations of the obtained results of the activity concentrations of radionuclides with the dominant elemental composition and particle diameter, as well as the possible origin of air pollution.
