This paper offers insights on the major issues and challenges firms face in the Covid-19 pandemic and their concerns for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) themes. To do so, we investigate large Italian firms' discussions on Twitter in the first nine months of the pandemic. Specifically, we ask: How is firms' Twitter discussion developing during the Covid-19 pandemic? Which CSR dimensions and topics do firms discuss? To what extent do they resonate with the public? We downloaded Twitter posts by the accounts of large Italian firms, and we built the bipartite network of accounts and hashtags. Read More

This study explores the transport properties of bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide-based ionic liquids with a naturally derived (1,2,5)-(-)-menthol moiety in the cationic part. In particular, we investigated the dependence of the dynamic viscosity and electrical conductivity as functions of the alkyl chain length. An important finding of this study is that both properties show nonmonotonic behavior with respect to the alkyl chain length. Read More

Controlling harmful microorganisms, such as , can require reliable inactivation steps, including those providing conditions (e.g., using high salt content) in which the pathogen could be progressively inactivated. Read More

High myopia is one of the leading causes of visual impairment worldwide with high heritability. We have previously identified the genetic contribution of SLC39A5 to nonsyndromic high myopia and demonstrated that disease-related mutations of SLC39A5 dysregulate the TGF-β pathway. In this study, the mechanisms underlying SLC39A5 involvement in the pathogenesis of high myopia are determined. Read More

5-(hydroxymethyl)furan-2-carbaldehyde, better known as hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), is a well-known freshness parameter of honey: although mostly absent in fresh samples, its concentration tends to increase naturally with aging. However, high quantities of HMF are also found in fresh but adulterated samples or honey subjected to thermal or photochemical stresses. In addition, HMF deserves further consideration due to its potential toxic effects on human health. Read More
