AB  - Nickel acetate tetrahydrate (NAT) sample series were used to modify screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPCE). The samples were hybrid Ni/NiO nanocomposites, where the NiO phase increased with an applied treatment temperature. Results of electrochemical measurements pointed that the Ni/NiO550/SPCE-modified electrode had the best analytical performance toward the detection of riboflavin (RF). The Ni/NiO550/SPCE-based sensor showed linear response with RF in the concentration range of 0.5–75 μM and 0.15 μM LOD in BRBS. Sensor offered fast response time, good repeatability, and selectivity with an RSD of 1.4 %. Our results show that the Ni:NiO nanocomposite ratio strongly influenced the electroanalytical performance of SPCE.

AB  - Several pyrazoloquinolinone (PQ) ligands were recently discovered as functionally selective positive modulators at the PQ site of α6-containing GABAA receptors. PQs are also neutral modulators at the benzodiazepine site. We assessed the influence of PQ compounds from three structural groups (PZ-II-029 and related deuterated analogues DK-I-56-1, RV-I-029, DK-I-60-3 and DK-I-86-1; LAU 463 and related analogues DK-I-58-1 and DK-II-58-1; and DK-I-87-1), alone and in combination with diazepam, on the behaviour of male Sprague–Dawley rats. An excellent behavioural safety profile of all tested PQs was demonstrated in the spontaneous locomotor activity, rotarod, loss of righting reflex and pentylenetetrazol tests. In interaction studies, only PZ-II-029 and its analogues prevented the ataxic effects of the benzodiazepine, as assessed in the rotarod test and during monitoring of rat locomotor activity after awakening from the loss of righting reflex. Published electrophysiological profiles of PQ ligands imply that positive modulation elicited at α6-GABAA receptors that contain the γ2 and δ subunit, rather than their neutral modulatory action at the benzodiazepine site, may prevent the ataxic action of diazepam. Thus, PZ-II-029 and its deuterated analogues are not prone to untoward interactions with benzodiazepines and may indeed completely abolish their ataxic action, seen at therapeutic, and especially toxic concentrations.

AB  - Scandium oxychloride (ScOCl) has recently become of interest as an advanced material with possible applications in solid oxide fuel cells, photocatalysis, and electronic devices, as are oxyhalides of various transition metals. In the present study, crystal structure prediction has been utilized to fully investigate the energy landscape of ScOCl. A multi-methodological approach has been used consisting of a combination of two search methods, where the final structure optimization has been performed on ab initio level using DFT-LDA and hybrid PBE0 functionals. The experimentally observed α-ScOCl phase has been found as well as several additional structure candidates at high pressures and/or temperatures. A successful synthesis of these novel ScOCl modifications would have the potential for extending the scientific, technological and industrial applications of ScOCl.

AB  - Background Myocardial infarction (MI) leads to ischemia and afterward to left ventricular (LV) remodeling. Matrix metalloproteinase−1 (MMP1) and −3 (MMP3) belong to the family of endopeptidases and together they can dissolve most of the components of the extracellular matrix. MMP1 and MMP3 variants have been investigated solely in association with ischemic heart disease and LV dysfunction, but not in haplotype. The aims of this study were to investigate the association of haplotypes inferred from MMP1 rs1799750 (−1607 1G/2G; NC_000011.9:g.102670497del) and MMP3 rs35068180 (−1612 5A/6A; NC_000011.9:g.102715952dup) with MI and their effect on the change in echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function in patients within 6 months after MI. Methods The study included 325 patients with the first MI and 283 healthy controls. Gene variants were detected by PCR-RFLP method. Parameters of LV structure and function were assessed by conventional 2D echocardiography, 3–5 days and 6 months after the first MI, on a subgroup of 160 patients. Haplotype analysis was performed with Thesias software. Results Haplotypes 2G-5A and 1G-6A were significantly and independently associated with MI compared with the reference haplotype 2G-6A (adjusted, p = 0.009 and p = 0.026, respectively). After Bonferroni correction for multiple testing, MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes lost their association with the change in LV long diameter and stroke volume within 6 months after MI. Conclusion MMP1 and MMP3 haplotypes are strongly associated with MI. Further studies are needed to validate this result and to examine their association with echocardiographic parameters of LV structure and function after MI.

AB  - Aluminum nitride (AlN) and boron nitride (BN) are well-known ceramic materials with numerous valuable properties, whereas recently there is a growing field of research on the AlN/BN advanced ceramic materials. Here, we present a study on boron-rich AlN, structural and electronic properties, and structure–property relationship. Several AlxB1−xN solid solutions (x = 1, .875, .75, and .625) have been investigated, and structure optimization has been performed for four different structure types: h-BN, wurtzite, sphalerite, and rock salt. First-principles calculations were performed using hybrid B3LYP functional. New modifications and compounds have been predicted as a function of boron concentration in AlN, and especially, interesting phase transitions were found at extreme pressure conditions. Electronic properties and band structures were computed, and the possibility for bandgap tuning has been discovered. The present study, and especially the structure–property relationship, gives new possibilities for bandgap engineering in boron-rich AlN electroceramic materials.

AB  - The operating characteristics of a commercial monocrystalline and amorphous Si-solar cell for outdoor and indoor applications with and without the use of the water flow lens (WFL) system are explored and reported. The cells are tested in indoor conditions with halogen and tungsten lamps, and additionally, in outdoor sun radiation. Changes in the spectra, investigation of the influence of higher and lower lighting, and indirect cooling of the solar cell are possibilities in the application of the used WFL system. After achieving the highest level of development and improvement for the Si-solar cell, as well as approaching theoretical maximum efficiency, it is obvious that efficiency gains can be made by better understanding additional light effects. Measurements made on monocrystalline Si-solar cells revealed that in the “focal point position” where intensity increases (above standard testing conditions [STC]), independently of indoor or outdoor lighting, huge improvements in ISC and VOC were observed. It was found that the ratios of the short-circuit current (ISC) and the input light energy (Pinput) are 5.2 and 24.8 for artificial light and 4.9 and 17.6 for outdoor light, without and with the use of the WFL system, respectively. The same trend after applying the WFL system was observed for the amorphous Si cell, except those oscillations were more pronounced at lower light intensities (far lower than STC), as expected. The ratios of ISC and Pinput are in the range of 5.1–5.3 and 10.5–26.5 without and with the use of the WFL system.

The cells are tested in indoor conditions with halogen and tungsten lamps, and additionally, in outdoor sun radiation. Changes in the spectra, investigation of the influence of higher and lower lighting, and indirect cooling of the solar cell are possibilities in the application of the used WFL system. After achieving the highest level of development and improvement for the Si-solar cell, as well as approaching theoretical maximum efficiency, it is obvious that efficiency gains can be made by better understanding additional light effects. Measurements made on monocrystalline Si-solar cells revealed that in the “focal point position” where intensity increases (above standard testing conditions [STC]), independently of indoor or outdoor lighting, huge improvements in ISC and VOC were observed. It was found that the ratios of the short-circuit current (ISC) and the input light energy (Pinput) are 5.2 and 24.8 for artificial light and 4.9 and 17.6 for outdoor light, without and with the use of the WFL system, respectively. The same trend after applying the WFL system was observed for the amorphous Si cell, except those oscillations were more pronounced at lower light intensities (far lower than STC), as expected. The ratios of ISC and Pinput are in the range of 5.1–5.3 and 10.5–26.5 without and with the use of the WFL system.",

AB  - In this paper, some results concerning the evolution of the fluid flow pattern and flame propagation of various fuels in a particular combustion chamber with four tilted valves were elucidated. Flame propagation was represented by the evolution of spatial distribution of temperature in various cutplanes within combustion chamber. Flame front location was determined in the zones with maximum temperature gradient. All results were obtained by dint of multidimensional modeling of reactive flows in arbitrary geometry of IC engine combustion chamber with moving boundaries. The above mentioned results were analysed and presented for two different hydrocarbon fuels such as gasoline and methane and one alchocol based fuel such as ethanol. The results for all three fules considered were obtained by dint of eddy-viscosity model i.e. with standard k-ε model of turbulence. The interplay between fluid flow pattern and flame propagation is entirely invariant as regards fuel variation indicating that flame propagation through unburnet mixture considered fuels is not chemically controlled but controlled by dint of turbulent diffusion.

AB  - Vaccination is one of the greatest achievements in biomedical research preventing death and morbidity in many infectious diseases through the induction of pathogen-specific humoral and cellular immune responses. Currently, no effective vaccines are available for pathogens with a highly variable antigenic load, such as the human immunodeficiency virus or to induce cellular T-cell immunity in the fight against cancer. The recent SARS-CoV-2 outbreak has reinforced the relevance of designing smart therapeutic vaccine modalities to ensure public health. Indeed, academic and private companies have ongoing joint efforts to develop novel vaccine prototypes for this virus. Many pathogens are covered by a dense glycan-coat, which form an attractive target for vaccine development. Moreover, many tumor types are characterized by altered glycosylation profiles that are known as “tumor-associated carbohydrate antigens”. Unfortunately, glycans do not provoke a vigorous immune response and generally serve as T-cell-independent antigens, not eliciting protective immunoglobulin G responses nor inducing immunological memory. A close and continuous crosstalk between glycochemists and glycoimmunologists is essential for the successful development of efficient immune modulators. It is clear that this is a key point for the discovery of novel approaches, which could significantly improve our understanding of the immune system. In this review, we discuss the latest advancements in development of vaccines against glycan epitopes to gain selective immune responses and to provide an overview on the role of different immunogenic constructs in improving glycovaccine efficacy.

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  - Thyroid hormones (TH) have a significant impact on cellular oxidative metabolism. Besides that,they maintain vascular homeostasis by positive effects on endothelial and vascular smooth muscle cells. Subclinical(SCH) and clinical (CH) hypothyroidism influences target organs by changing their morphology andfunction and impaired blood and oxygen supply induced by accelerated atherosclerosis. The increased risk ofacceleration and extension of atherosclerosis in patients with SCH and CH could be explained by dyslipidemia,diastolic hypertension, increased arterial stiffness, endothelial dysfunction, and altered blood coagulation. Instabilityof atherosclerotic plaque in hypothyroidism could cause excessive activity of the elements of innateimmunity, which are characterized by the significant presence of macrophages in atherosclerotic plaques, increasednuclear factor kappa B (NFkB) expression, and elevated levels of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α) andmatrix metalloproteinase (MMP) 9, with reduced interstitial collagen; all of them together creates inflammationmilieu, resulting in plaque rupture. Optimal substitution by levothyroxine (LT4) restores biochemical euthyroidism.In postmenopausal women and elderly patients with hypothyroidism and associated vascularcomorbidity, excessive LT4 substitution could lead to atrial rhythm disorders and osteoporosis. Therefore, it isof interest to maintain thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) levels in the reference range, thus eliminating thedeleterious effects of lower or higher TSH levels on the cardiovascular system. This review summarizes the recentliterature on subclinical and clinical hypothyroidism and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease and discussesthe effects of LT4 replacement therapy on restoring biochemical euthyroidism and atherosclerosis processes.

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  - As a renewable resource, starch is considered to be fully biodegradable and nonpolluting to the environment but the hygroscopicity of starch is the main disadvantage for wider applicability in the production of a polymer-based material. Hydrophobically modified starch prepared using natural-based plasticizers/modifiers in a first step ([-]-diisopropyl D-tartrate [DiPT], ricinoleic acid [RA] and epoxidized soybean oil [ESO]), and maleated polypropylene (MAPP) in a second step contributed to better compatibility, and thus reinforcing of composites. Tailored processing conditions, structural/morphological properties, hydrophobicity, and water-resistance of the modified starch were established. In addition, the Charpy impact and tensile strength of composites, based on poly(ethylene-co-acrylic acid) (EAA) and modified starches, were determined. Increased tensile strength and Young modulus of the composite using starch-modified with DiPT-MAPP, that is, 3 and 83%, respectively, indicated the possible applicability of obtained materials.

AB  - In this study, four low molecular weight (LMW) excipients, tryptophan (TRY), phenylalanine (PHE), lysine (LYS) and saccharin (SAC) were evaluated as co-formers to generate co-amorphous systems (CAMS) by ball milling with carvedilol (CRV). Mixtures of CRV and LMW excipient in 1:0.5, 1:1 and 1:2 drug:excipient molar ratios were ball milled and analysed by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), Fourier transform (FT-IR) infrared spectroscopy and dissolution testing. CAMS were formed by milling of a mixture of CRV with TRY in 1:2 M ratio and SAC in 1:1 M ratio, while amorphization of only CRV was achieved in other mixtures with SAC. In other samples containing TRY and PHE, milling resulted in partial amorphization, while LYS was the least suitable excipient for the amorphization of CRV. Unexpectedly, the highest supersaturation of CRV was achieved from samples containing CRV and LYS in 1:1 and 1:2 M ratios, despite the absence of a significant reduction in CRV crystallinity upon milling of these samples. Increase of hydrophobic surface area caused by milling of samples with TRY and PHE and agglomeration during dissolution testing of samples containing SAC are likely causes of poor dissolution performance of mixtures containing fully or partially amorphous CRV.

AB  - Polymer matrix composite materials have found application in dentistry because of good mechanical properties, aesthetic, easy processing, and possibilities of the repair. Acrylates are materials used to make and repair dentures. Reinforcements in the form of short glass or polymer fibers are added to improve the mechanical properties of dental polymers. In this study, the processing of composite material with a polymer matrix from commercial auto-polymerized acrylate Simgal, with reinforcement in the form of short poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) fibers was examined. Samples were processed in three series: pure Simgal, Simgal/PET 1 wt% and Simgal/PET 3 wt%. The influence of the reinforcement in the form of short PET fibers on the mechanical properties of composite materials was investigated. Strength and hardness were tested by impact testing and Vickers microhardness, and it was shown that there is an increase in absorbed energy and hardness. The modulus was reduced by the addition of PET fibers and by increasing the amount of fibers in the composite. The increase in the amount of PET fibers also resulted in a smaller loss of surface mass of the samples compared to the pure matrix by 63% and 93%, respectively. Cavitation test revealed better cavitation resistance of composites than the pure acrylate.

AB  - Aims GABAergic modulation involved in cognitive processing appears to be substantially changed in Alzheimer's disease (AD). In a widely used 5xFAD model of AD, we aimed to assess if negative and positive allosteric modulators of α5 GABAA receptors (NAM and PAM, respectively) would affect social interaction, social, object and spatial memory, and neuroinflammation. Methods After 10-day treatment with PAM, NAM, or solvent, 6-month-old transgenic and non-transgenic 5xFAD mice underwent testing in a behavioral battery. Gene expressions of IL-1β, IL-6, TNF-α, GFAP, and IBA-1 were determined in hippocampus and prefrontal cortex by qPCR. Results PAM treatment impaired spatial learning in transgenic females compared to solvent-treated transgenic females, and social recognition in transgenic and non-transgenic males. NAM treatment declined social interaction in transgenic and non-transgenic males, while had beneficial effect on cognitive flexibility in non-transgenic males compared to solvent-treated non-transgenic males. Transgenic animals have not fully displayed cognitive symptoms, but neuroinflammation was confirmed. NAM reduced proinflammatory gene expressions in transgenic females and astrogliosis in transgenic males compared to pathological controls. Conclusion PAM and NAM failed to exert favorable behavioral effects in transgenic animals. Suppression of neuroinflammation obtained with NAM calls for more studies with GABAergic ligands in amyloid beta- and/or tau-dependent models with prominent neuroinflammation.

AB  - Theoretical tools or structure-property relations that enable the prediction of metal hydrides are of enormous interest in developing new hydrogen storage materials. Density functional theory (DFT) is one such approach that provides accurate hydride formation energies, which, if complemented with vibrational zero-point energy and other contributions, provides accurate hydride formation enthalpies. However, this approach is time consuming and, therefore, often avoided, hindering the modeling of experimental behavior. The recent implementation of graph neural networks (GNN) in materials science enables fast prediction of crystal formation energy with a DFT accuracy. Starting from the MatErials Graph Network (MEGNet), transfer learning is applied to develop a model for predicting hydride formation enthalpy based on the crystal structure of the starting intermetallic. Excellent accuracy is achieved for Mg-containing alloys, allowing the screening of the Mg-Ni-M ternary intermetallics. In addition, data containing matching experimental properties and crystal structure of metal hydrides are provided, enabling future development.

AB  - Nanopowders of up-conversion SrGd2O4 orthorhombic (Pnma) phase co-doped with different Yb3+ (1, 2.5 and 5 at%) and constant Er3+ (0.5 at%) ions were successfully prepared via sol-gel assisted combustion. Rietveld refinement indicated unit cell lattice parameters increase with Yb3+ and Er3+ ions doping. Scanning transmission electron microscopy with corresponding energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy revealed that obtained powders are composed of agglomerated nanoparticles that have a uniform distribution of all constituting elements. Photoluminescence measurements implied intensification of the up-conversion (UC) emission in the visible part of spectrum with the increase of Yb3+ content, which is followed by a significant change in the green to red ratio. Two-photon UC processes are established as a result of Er3+ f-f electronic transitions: green emission at 523 and 551 nm (2H11/2, 4S3/2 → 4I15/2) as well as a red emission at 661 nm (4F9/2 → 4I15/2). The highest value of absolute quantum yield of 0.055% is determined for SrGd2O4 nanoparticles doped with 0.5 at% of Er3+ and co-doped with 5 at% of Yb3+ (λexc = 976 nm, power density 200 W/cm2).

AB  - Triclosan (TCS) is a polychlorinated phenoxy phenol (PCPPs) used as a disinfectant and a broad-spectrum antibacterial and antifungal agent in personal hygiene products. TCS easily forms diphenyl ethers and dioxins, which are persistent organic pollutants. This work used a double approach for the TSC sensing: a) screen-printed (SPE) electrochemical platform for on-site application, modified with lanthanum iron oxide and graphitic carbon nitride composite (LaFeO3/Fe2O3@g-C3N4/SPE); and b) carbon paste electrode (CPE), modified with the same material and used in laboratory conditions. Linear range from 0.1 μM to 10 μM, the limit of detection (LOD) of 29 nM and the limit of quantification (LOQ) of 91 nM were obtained for CP electrode in BRBS pH 8. SPE showed the best analytical parameters in BRBS at pH 3, with a linear range from 0.3 μM to 7 μM, LOD of 0.09 μM and LOQ of 0.28 μM. Furthermore, the influence of potential interferents was investigated and proven to be negligible. Determination of TSC was performed to estimate the environmental impact of this compound as well as the practical usefulness of the proposed sensor in the real sample analysis, confirmed with a HPLC analysis. © 2022 Elsevier B.V.

AB  - D-galactose (d-gal) is broadly used in animal aging studies as its chronic administration mimics learning and memory impairments related to aging in humans. However, within the few studies that utilize chronic oral d-gal intake, none of them is focused on alteration in synaptic structure and function. We examined the effects of 6-weeks oral d-gal intake (200 mg/kg and 500 mg/kg, dissolved in tap water) on age-related changes, with emphasis on the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and hippocampus (HIP) of adult male Wistar rats. Memory assessment was followed by histological examination of the PFC and HIP (Nissl staining and Iba-1 immunostaining), while in crude synaptosomal fractions the state of oxidative stress and the expression of proteins involved in glutamatergic signaling was determined. Although applied dosages compromised memory, alterations such as impaired sensory-motor function and aberrant morphology were not detected. In the PFC, analysis of microglia revealed reduction of branching pattern following d-gal intake, in parallel with increased oxidative damage of proteins, lipids and disturbed pro-oxidant antioxidant balance. These changes in the PFC were further accompanied with decreased levels of vesicular glutamate transporter 1, syntaxin-1 and NMDA receptor 2B subunit in both treated groups. Simultaneously, the increased hippocampal oxidative damage of lipids was detected. Results indicate successful provocation of age-related changes following oral d-gal intake, and suggest greater sensitivity of the PFC to d-gal treatment than HIP.

AB  - A series of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs)-poly(vinyl alcohol)/poly(N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVA/PVP) hydrogel nanocomposites were synthesized by gamma irradiation to examine the matrix's impact on properties of Ag nanocrystals important for strain engineering in functional materials. SEM analysis and the swelling studies revealed nanocomposite morphology and fluid transport properties. UV–Vis absorption characterization of AgNPs has enabled an understanding of the cluster size effects. The gel content indicated inter-crosslinking of the two components of the polymer matrix, especially for equivalent (1:1) PVA/PVP ratio, affecting the investigated AgNPs structural parameters. The lattice parameters and the interface stress, analyzed using XRD, have the lowest negative magnitude from the bulk lattice constant for the PVA/PVP (2:1) and (1:1) ratio. The lowest values of the lattice strain and dislocation density, as mutually dependent parameters, are obtained in AgNPs embedded in a PVA/PVP (2:1) and (1:1) matrix. The XPS and FTIR data show a positive shift of the O1s and a redshift of the CO – Ag vibration band indicating charge transfer to the vacant orbital of Ag nanocrystals. The N atoms of the pyrrolidine ring are not directly involved in the electronic interactions, but over the p-π conjugation with carbonyl O. In addition, the tested Ag-(PVA/PVP) hydrogel nanocomposites showed significant potential as a broad-spectrum antibacterial material.

AB  - Pure and samarium (Sm3+) - or zirconium (Zr4+)-doped TiO2 nanofibers were synthesized by electrospinning method followed by calcination at 500 °C for 1 h. As-spun fibers were smooth, straight and continuous, whilst EDS analysis confirmed the fiber composition and incorporation of dopants in the fibers. Doping with Sm3+ and Zr4+ greatly inhibited the phase transformation of anatase to rutile, by surrounding of Sm3+ ions through formation of Ti-O-Sm bonds and by replacement of Ti4+ ions with larger Zr4+ ions. This was confirmed by HRTEM and SAED analysis. The size of nanofibers was determined to be 133 nm, 175 nm and 155 nm for pure, (0.5%)Sm3+:TiO2 and (1%)Zr4+:TiO2, respectively. After calcination, TiO2 crystal lattice with interplanar spacing of 0.353 nm of (101) crystal plane was not significantly disturbed by Sm doping whilst crystal lattice spacing of 0.357 nm of (101) planes of anatase phase in case TiO2:1.0%Zr4+, significantly differs from the value of pure TiO2 (0.352 nm), thus implying that Zr was doped into substitutional sites of the TiO2 lattice. The indirect band gaps were calculated to be in the range 3.07–3.24 eV. TiO2:0.5%Sm3+ and TiO2:1.0%Zr4+ exhibited higher specific surface area, of 47.1 and 59.4 m2/g, respectively, than pure TiO2 fibers (19.7 m2/g). Effects of Sm3+ and Zr4+ dopant content on the photodegradation efficiency of methylene blue (MB) were studied. TiO2:0.5%Sm3+ and TiO2:1.0%Zr4+ nanofibers have shown the highest photocatalytic activity of 97% and 98% with constant rates 0.01768 min−1 and 0.01939 min−1, respectively, within180 min irradiation under visible light.

AB  - Gamma irradiation provides an alternative pathway to conventional gold nanoparticle synthesis because it is simple, fast, and economical. Here, we employed gamma irradiation at low doses (1–20 kGy) to obtain gold nanoparticles (Au NPs) anchored onto graphene oxide (GO) sheets. GO was selected as a suitable platform for the nucleation and growth of Au NPs because of its large surface area and good dispersibility in water due to the presence of polar oxygen-containing functional groups in its structure. Gamma irradiation at all the applied doses led to the reduction of chloroauric acid and the formation of evenly distributed Au NPs at the GO surface, simultaneously causing the reduction of GO and partial restoration of the graphene structure. As-prepared Au NPs have predominately spheric shapes and the smallest nanoparticles were reported for the dose of 1 kGy. The increase in the irradiation dose caused either the growth of larger particles (5 and 10 kGy) or the broad distribution of particles’ sizes (20 kGy). All samples showed a temperature increase upon exposure to 800 nm laser and photothermal efficiency was the highest for the sample prepared at 20 kGy. © 2022 Elsevier Ltd

AB  - In this paper, the influence of the input and output data scaling and normalization on the neural network overall performances is investigated aimed at inverse problem-solving in photoacoustics of semiconductors. The logarithmic scaling of the photoacoustic signal amplitudes as input data and numerical scaling of the sample thermal parameters as output data are presented as useful tools trying to reach maximal network precision. Max and min–max normalizations to the input data are presented to change their numerical values in the dataset to common scales, without distorting differences. It was demonstrated in theory that the largest network prediction error of all targeted parameters is obtained by a network with non-scaled output data. Also, it was found out that the best network prediction was achieved with min–max normalization of the input data and network predicted output data scale within the range of [1–10]. Network training and prediction performances analyzed with experimental input data show that the benefits and improvements of input and output scaling and normalization are not guaranteed but are strongly dependent on a specific problem to be solved.

AB  - The objective of this paper is to present methodology of the precise and reliable determination of thermal diffusivity and linear coefficient of thermal expansion of the photoacoustic signal recorded (obtained) using open photoacoustic cell where thickness of the sample served as a control parameter. The methodology was based on the application of neural networks that were trained on numerical experiments and optimized by adding Gaussian noise to the training base that corresponded in percentage to maximum measurement uncertainty. By comparing the predictions of the neural network with theoretical fitting curve for experimental results for the aluminum sample that was 197 μm thick, it was shown that the proposed methodology achieves high precision in the determination of thermoelastic and geometrical properties of the sample.
