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  - In this study, the influence of boron doping on structural and surface properties of carbon material synthesized by a hydrothermal method was investigated, and the obtained results were compared with the previously published influence that boron has on characteristics of carbonized boron-doped hydrothermal carbons (CHTCB). Hydrothermal carbons doped with boron (HTCB) were obtained by the hydrothermal synthesis of glucose solutions with different nominal concentrations of boric acid. It was found that glucose based hydrothermal carbon does not have developed porosity, and the presence of boron in their structure has insignificant influence on it. On the contrary, additional carbonization increases the specific surface area of the undoped sample, while an increase in boron content drastically decreases the specific surface area. Boron doping leads to a decrease in the amount of surface oxygen groups, for both, hydrothermally synthesized and additionally carbonized materials. Raman analysis showed that the boron content does not affect a structural arrangement of the HTCB samples, and Raman structural parameters show a higher degree of disorder, compared to the CHTCB samples. Comparison of structural and surface characteristics of hydrothermal carbons and carbonized materials contributes to the study of the so far, insufficiently clarified influence that boron incorporation has on the material characteristics. © 2022 Serbian Chemical Society.

AB  - This study presents the impact properties of the new form of hybrid thermoplastic composites. The Kolon fabrics were impregnated with the 10 wt% poly (vinyl butyral) (PVB)/ethanol solution with the addition of silica (SiO2) particles originating from rice husk or layered double hydroxide modified silica particles (FeAl-LDH@SiO2) as reinforcement. All the composites consisted of one layer of the impregnated fabric where the silica particles concentrations were 0.5 wt% and 1.0 wt% regarding PVB. The impact properties of the composite samples were analyzed by the controlled energy puncture impact tester. The structures of the composite samples were determined by the attenuated total reflection Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (ATR-FTIR) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM). The results showed that the Kolon/PVB/1 wt% FeAl-LDH@SiO2 sample yielded the maximum impact force.

AB  - Carbonaceous solid-phase extraction (SPE) sorbent, efficient in isolation and enrichment of multiclass pesticides and pharmaceuticals from water, was synthesized starting from cheap waste beech sawdust and using KOH as the activated agent. The first step in carbon material preparation was hydrothermal carbonization of the waste beech sawdust. Following hydrothermal treatment, the obtained material was activated, using different amounts of KOH. It was found that applied activation leads to changes in material structure, an increase in specific surface area, and a decrease in the number of surface oxygen groups compared to carbonized sample. SPE procedure of multiclass pesticides and pharmaceuticals from water using activated carbonized beech sawdust (AcSD) was optimized by selecting the appropriate elution solvents, the sample pH, and the sample volume to obtain the highest enrichment efficiency. The optimized SPE procedure was applied for water analysis using different AcSD samples as a sorbent for analyte preconcentration. Activated carbon sorbent, obtained with the highest amount of KOH, showed the highest recoveries regarding the most analytes, which were comparable with the recoveries obtained by commercial cartridges. © 2022 Serbian Chemical Society.

AB  - Diatomite (diatomaceous earth) and clay minerals deposits from the mining basin Kolubara, Serbia, are natural materials with high economic potential in many fields. As received and treated materials, diatomite and clay were characterized using X-ray diffraction, mercury intrusion porosimetry, particle size distribution, scanning electron microscopy, and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. Activity concentrations for natural radionuclides 40K, 226Ra and 232Th and anthropogenic radionuclide 137Cs in diatomite and clay were determined by gamma spectrometry with HPGe detector. For diatomite and clay, the mean activity concentrations of 226Ra, 232Th and 40K were found to be 9, 26 and 173 Bq kg-1 and 19, 26 and 470 Bq kg-1, respectively. In the present study was to show that these materials are environmentally safe for further use in many fields.

AB  - The effect of zircon (ZrSiO4) on the physico-chemical and mechanical properties of geopolymer/zircon composites was examined in this study. Four geopolymer/zircon composites containing 10, 20, 30 and 40 wt.% zircon were prepared from metakaolin with alkali activators. Characterization of the obtained geopolymers was performed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Scanning electron microscope (SEM-EDS), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR) and Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF). XRD results did not confirmed the formation of interconnected phases between added zircon, starting aluminum silicates and alkali activators. Compressive strength of prepared geopolymer was examined. The maximum obtained compressive strength of 70.15 MPa was measured in sample containing the smallest fraction of zircon, i.e., 10 wt.%. Addition of larger amount of zircon (20 wt.%) hinders the progress of geopolymerization reaction and consequently decreases compressive strength.

AB  - Redirecting waste biomass back into the economy can reduce their burden on the environment. The use of waste biomass for the production of fuels, value-added materials or natural fillers has significant economic and environmental benefits. Physico-chemical characterization of waste biomass (plum pomace and fig pomace) was done by proximate, elemental, biochemical analysis, FTIR and SEM analysis. The calorific value of both biomasses can be compared with the calorific value of lignite, which rises their potential use as a solid biofuel. The combustion behavior of biomass was investigated by thermal analysis techniques. Based on thermal degradation experiments performed at four heating rates a kinetic analysis of the biomass decomposition process was accomplished. The kinetic study was done using Kissinger method, Ozawa method, Flynn-Wall-Ozawa (FWO) method, Starink method, and Kissinger-Akahira-Sunose (KAS) method. The value of activation energy obtained by different kinetic methods was ∼210 kJ/mol for plum pomace and ∼162 kJ/mol for fig pomace. Estimated activation energy values were used to calculate thermodynamic parameters. In addition to the fact that the obtained results can serve as a useful reference for the design of pyrolysis reactors, this research has ecological significance because it solves the problem of solid waste disposal.

AB  - We report on overcoming the sensitivity limit of Boltzmann's thermometers by utilization of seven thermalized Dy3+ excited states in the Lu1.5Y1·5Al5O12 host. Emission spectra recorded from room temperature to 938 K show transitions originating from seven 4F9/2, 4I15/2, 4G11/2, 4I13/2, 4M21/2, 4K17/2, and 4F7/2 excited levels to the 6H15/2 ground state. We introduce the multi-cascade LIR (McLIR) by extending the conventional, two-thermalized level Boltzmann-type LIR to seven thermalized levels. This approach provides higher energy differences between thermalized levels which results in five times larger sensitivity than in the conventional LIR. Considering energy differences between Dy3+ excited states of 1043, 2464, 4331, and 5089 cm−1, the luminescence thermometry with McLIR provided 0.35, 0.84, 1.47, 1.73% K−1 relative sensitivities at 650 K, respectively, in four different LIR combinations. The validity of the McLIR method and the effectiveness of thermalizations between levels is confirmed with the good theoretical fit of experimental data.

AB  - The endangered loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) are a relatively abundant sea turtle species in Madeiran waters, where they encounter various environmental stressors: from natural to anthropogenic. The physiological stress response is increased corticosterone (CS) level in the blood, achieving 2 ng/mL. Although there are various analytical methods for determining the CS concentration in turtle blood, most of them require tedious procedures for the preparation. In this work, we have tested the possibility of using matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF MS) for fast screening and detection of CS in blood from a turtle captured at the coast of Madeira Island. MALDI does not require sample derivatization and is suitable for low sample volume. The linearity, precision, and limit of detection and quantification with three organic MALDI matrices were investigated in this study. The signal-to-noise ratio of the CS-derived signal was used as a parameter for quantification. Isotopically labelled corticosterone was added as a correction factor at fixed concentration to achieve better linearity and precision. Our results demonstrate that this method has the potential for quantification of CS in turtle blood. However, the lowest concentration of CS extracted from plasma that was still detectable by MALDI TOF MS was about 0.04 mg/mL, which is about ten times higher than the expected CS concentration in blood.

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  - Background This study aimed to investigate the effects of lithium treatment on gene expression and activity of the prefrontal antioxidant enzymes: copper, zinc superoxide dismutase (SOD1), manganes superoxide dismutase (SOD2), catalase (CAT), and glutathione peroxidase (GPx) in animals exposed to chronic restraint stress (CRS). Methods The investigated parameters were quantified using real-time RT-PCR, Western blot analyses, and assays of enzyme activities. Results We found that lithium treatment decreased gene expression of SOD2, as well as the activities of SOD1 and SOD2 in chronically stressed rats to the levels found in unstressed animals. However, lithium treatment in animals exposed to CRS increased prefrontal GPx activity to the levels found in unstressed animals. Conclusions These findings confirm that treatment with lithium induced the modulation of prefrontal antioxidant status in chronically stressed rats. Our results may be very important in biomedical research for understanding the role of lithium in maintaining the stability of prefrontal antioxidant defense system in neuropsychiatric disorders caused by chronic stress.

Our results may be very important in biomedical research for understanding the role of lithium in maintaining the stability of prefrontal antioxidant defense system in neuropsychiatric disorders caused by chronic stress.",

AB  - The aim of the study was to investigate the potency of Cinnamomum camphora cineoliferum and Melaleuca ericifolia essential oils (EOs) against facultative and obligate anaerobes isolated from teeth’ infected root canals. Biocompatibility of the EOs was also in the study focus. Chemical composition of the EOs was determined by GC/MS analysis. Their antibacterial potential and cytotoxicity were evaluated by microdilution and MTT assays, respectively. Statistical analysis was performed by Student’s t-test and one way ANOVA. Two the most abundant constituents of C. camphora cineoliferum EO were 1,8-cineole and sabinene, while in M. ericifolia EO the dominant were linalool and 1,8-cineole. MICs achieved against all tested strains were in the ranges 0.95±0.50 - 22.50±0.00 mg/mL and 0.65±0.00 - 23.35±7.80 mg/mL for the C. camphora cioneoliferum and M. ericifolia EOs, respectively. Statistical analysis showed that response to both oils has not differed between facultative and obligate anaerobes. Sensitivity pattern of the tested strains was different for the EOs and the positive control triple antibiotic paste (TAP): while E. faecalis and certain strains of S. salivarius were among the most sensitive to the oils, they were the least susceptible to the conventional antimicrobial TAP. Although the observed cytotoxicity of the EOs after 30 min of cell exposition was high (50.78-66.35% and up to 70% for C. camphora cioneoliferum and M. ericifolia EOs, respectively) it was lower than that of positive control (1.5% NaOCl, p<0.05). To conclude, both EOs showed promising antibacterial potential and achieved at least the same or even better biocompatibility than the conventional intracanal antimicrobials. Obtained results strongly encourage future research with an aim to formulate C. camphora cioneoliferum and M. ericifolia EO- based irrigants and medicaments, that could be used in endodontic practice.

AB  - Urea-formaldehyde (UF) composites with a formaldehyde/urea (FA/U) ratio = 0.8 and different particle sizes of montmorillonite (MMT), namely UF/KSF and UF/K10 were synthesized. The hydrolytic stability of modified UF composites was determined by measuring the content of the liberated formaldehyde of modified UF composites after acid hydrolysis. The synthesized modified UF composites were irradiated (50 kGy) and the effect of γ–irradiation was evaluated on the basis of these thermal behaviors. The thermal behavior was studied by non-isothermal thermo-gravimetric analysis (TG), differential thermo-gravimetry (DTG), and differential thermal analysis (DTA) supported by data from Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The minimum percentages of free (0.4%) and liberated (1.2%) formaldehyde were obtained in the UF/KSF composite. The modified UF/KSF composite shows better radiation resistance than the modified UF/K10 composite. The shift of temperature values for the selected mass losses (T5%) to higher temperatures indicates an increase in the thermal stability of the UF/K10 composite after γ–irradiation. γ–irradiation causes a decrease in the absorption intensity of bands in the FTIR spectrum of a modified UF/KSF composite and an increase in the absorption intensity of bands in the FTIR spectrum of a modified UF/K10 composite. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - In the last decade, targeting membrane lipids in cancer cells has been a promising approach that deserves attention in the field of anticancer drug development. To get a comprehensive understanding of the effect of the drug [Ru(η5-Cp)(PPh3)2CN] (RuCN) on cell lipidic components, we combine complementary analytical approaches, matrix-assisted laser desorption and ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI TOF MS) and synchrotron radiation-based Fourier transform infrared (SR-FTIR) spectroscopy. Techniques are used for screening the effect of potential metallodrug, RuCN, without and with drug carriers (carbon dots (CDs) and nitrogen-doped carbon dots (N-CDs)) on the lipids of the human ovarian cancer cell line A2780. MALDI TOF MS results revealed that the lysis of ovarian cancer membrane lipids is promoted by RuCN and not by drug carriers (CDs and N-CDs). Furthermore, SR-FTIR results strongly suggested that the phospholipids of cancer cells undergo oxidative stress after the treatment with RuCN that was accompanied by the disordering of the fatty acid chains. On the other hand, using (N-)CDs as RuCN nanocarriers prevented the oxidative stress caused by RuCN but did not prevent the disordering of the fatty acid chain packing. Finally, we demonstrated that RuCN and RuCN/(N-)CDs alter the hydration of the membrane surface in the membrane–water interface region.

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 characterization of nanocomposite samples which contain Cu, Fe-species, prepared by the sol-gel method, was established by Nikolić et al., in a previous article (Nikolić et al. in Journal of Solid State Physics 513:1, 2021). In this study, the magnetic behavior of nanocomposite samples was examined. The basic parameters of the room- and low-temperature magnetic hysteresis loops are discussed. To better describe the shape of magnetic hysteresis loop, the authors proposed to consider additional parameters - measures of the exterior angles of the hysteresis curve. Behavior of hysteresis parameters and exterior angles, caused by annealing treatment, was investigated by measuring hysteresis loops at two measured temperatures: 298K, and 5K. Correlation between changes in the behavior of hysteresis parameters and exterior angles was discussed. An attempt has been made to attribute physical meaning to chosen measured angles, which would allow a better understanding of the magnetic hysteresis curve. © 2022, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature.

AB  - The reduction of the photogenerated charge carriers' influence in periodically illuminated thin silicon membranes is investigated by using the experimental setup of an open photoacoustic cell in the standard range of modulation frequencies from 20 Hz to 20 kHz. It is confirmed that the deposition of a 200 nm thin film of titanium dioxide on the 30- and 50 μm silicon membrane leads to a large increase of the thermoelastic component of the photoacoustic signal, which restores the flexibility lost to the membrane under the influence of photogenerated carriers. The effect of the thermoelastic component enhancement is analyzed by observing the displacement of the tested samples along the heat propagation axis, depending on the carrier density and temperature differences on the illuminated and unilluminated sides, for different membrane thicknesses and a constant film thickness. It is found that the effect of enhancement of several orders of magnitude is more visible in thinner membranes due to higher ratios between the film and membrane thicknesses.

AB  - We study how the nonlinear propagation dynamics of bulk states may be used to distinguish topological phases of slowly driven Floquet lattices. First, we show how instabilities of nonlinear Bloch waves may be used to populate Floquet bands and measure their Chern number via the emergence of nontrivial polarization textures in a similar manner to static (undriven) lattices. Second, we show how the nonlinear dynamics of nonstationary superposition states may be used to identify dynamical symmetry inversion points in the intracycle dynamics, thereby allowing anomalous Floquet phases to be distinguished from the trivial phase. The approaches may be readily implemented using light propagation in nonlinear waveguide arrays.

AB  - Newly designed mesoporous brushite-metakaolin-based geopolymer materials were examined with an idea for using this material as a potential adsorbent for Pb(II) removal from aqueous solutions. As a starting component for geopolymer synthesis, a natural raw kaolinite clay with theaddition of 2 wt.%, 4 wt.%, 6 wt.%, 8 wt.%, and 10 wt.% of pure brushite was used. Phase, structural,morphological, and adsorption properties of newly synthesized mesoporous brushite-metakaolin geopolymer materials were examined in detail by the means of XRPD, FTIR, SEM-EDS, BET/BJH, and ICP-OES methods. The ICP-OES results showed that the synthesized material samples with 2 wt.%, 4 wt.%, and 6 wt.% of brushite possess significant adsorption properties and the mechanisms of the adsorption process can be attributed to chemisorption. The most notable result is that brushite-metakaolin-geopolymer with 2 wt.% of brushite have the best efficiency removal, more than 85% of Pb(II).

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.

abstract = "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).

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.
