Dalton Trans 2021 Apr;50(15):5262-5268

State Key Laboratory of Silicate Materials for Architectures, Wuhan University of Technology, Wuhan 430070, P. R. China. and Wuhan National Laboratory for Optoelectronics, Huazhong University of Science and Technology, Wuhan 430074, P. R. China.

Ca doped CuScO2 (CSO) delafossite oxides of 3-4 μm were synthesized through the hydrothermal method using Cu(NO3)2·3H2O, Sc(NO3)3·xH2O as the precursor at 240 °C for 24 h in this work. The influence of the process parameters (reaction temperature, Cu/Sc molar ratios, EG (ethylene glycol) quantity, NaOH mineralizer, reactant concentration) on the structure and morphology of CSO was studied systematically. The crystal structure, morphology, and chemical composition of these Ca doped CSO (0, 1 at%, 3 at%, and 5 at%) sheets were analyzed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), field emission scanning electron microscopy (FESEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS).

Mouse mandibular retromolar taste buds associated with a mucus salivary gland.

Chem Senses 2021 Apr 15. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Monell Chemical Senses Center, Philadelphia, PA, USA.

We have characterized a recently rediscovered chemosensory structure at the rear of the mandibular mucosa in the mouse oral cavity originally reported in the 1980s. This consists of unorganized taste buds, not contained within troughs, associated with the ducts of an underlying minor salivary gland. Using whole-mount preparations of transgenic mice expressing green fluorescent protein under the promoter of taste-signaling-specific genes, we determined that the structure contains taste bud clusters and salivary gland orifices at the rear of each mandible, distal to the last molar and anterior to the ascending ramus.

Bacterial Microcompartments Coupled with Extracellular Electron Transfer Drive the Anaerobic Utilization of Ethanolamine in Listeria monocytogenes.

mSystems 2021 Apr 13;6(2). Epub 2021 Apr 13.

Food Microbiology, Wageningen University and Research, Wageningen, the Netherlands

Ethanolamine (EA) is a valuable microbial carbon and nitrogen source derived from cell membranes. EA catabolism is suggested to occur in a cellular metabolic subsystem called a bacterial microcompartment (BMC), and the activation of EA utilization () genes is linked to bacterial pathogenesis. Despite reports showing that the activation of is regulated by a vitamin B-binding riboswitch and that upregulation of genes occurs in mice, it remains unknown whether EA catabolism is BMC dependent in Here, we provide evidence for BMC-dependent anaerobic EA utilization via metabolic analysis, proteomics, and electron microscopy.

J Colloid Interface Sci 2021 Aug 17;595:202-211. Epub 2021 Mar 17.

Université Paris-Saclay, CNRS, Institut Galien Paris-Saclay, 92296 Châtenay-Malabry, France. Electronic address:

In this study, we proved that the stabilisation of Pickering emulsions by polymer nanoparticles (NPs) heavily depends on polymer characteristics. We prepared NPs with four poly(lactide-co-glycolide) polymers (PLGA), of different molar masses (14,000 and 32,000 g/mol) and end groups (acid or alkylester).

An Update on Endodontic Microsurgery of Mandibular Molars: A Focused Review.

Medicina (Kaunas) 2021 Mar 16;57(3). Epub 2021 Mar 16.

Department of Conservative Dentistry, School of Dentistry, Jeonbuk National University, Jeonju 54896, Korea.

Endodontic microsurgery is a highly predictable treatment option in most cases when conventional endodontic treatment is not feasible. Nevertheless, mandibular molars are still considered by clinicians to be the most difficult type of teeth, with the lowest success rate. In recent years, endodontic microsurgery has been attempted more frequently with the emergence of modern cutting-edge technologies such as dental operating microscopes, various microsurgical instruments, and biocompatible materials, and the success rate is increasing.

Green Solvents as an Alternative to DMF in ZIF-90 Synthesis.

Molecules 2021 Mar 12;26(6). Epub 2021 Mar 12.

Department of Inorganic Chemistry and Technology, National Institute of Chemistry, Hajdrihova 19, SI-1001 Ljubljana, Slovenia.

The use of green solvents as an alternative to dimethylformamide (DMF) in the synthesis of zeolitic imidazolate framework-90 (ZIF-90) was investigated. Two biobased aprotic dipolar solvents Cyrene and γ-valerolactone (GVL) proved to successfully replace DMF in the synthesis at room temperature with a high product yield. While the Cyrene-based product shows reduced porosity after activation, the use of GVL resulted in materials with preserved crystallinity and porosity after activation, without prior solvent exchange and a short treatment at 200 °C.

Modulating solvation interactions of deep eutectic solvents formed by ammonium salts and carboxylic acids through varying the molar ratio of hydrogen bond donor and acceptor.

J Chromatogr A 2021 Apr 18;1643:462011. Epub 2021 Feb 18.

Ames Laboratory-USDOE and Department of Chemistry, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa 50011, United States. Electronic address:

Deep eutectic solvents (DESs) have gained increasing popularity in separation science due to the fact that their physico-chemical properties can be easily fine-tuned by varying the type or ratio of hydrogen bond acceptor (HBA) and hydrogen bond donor (HBD). While it is well-known that the molar ratio of HBA/HBD affects the melting point of a eutectic mixture, much less is understood regarding its effect on the magnitude of individual solvation interactions. This is largely due to the fact that established solvatochromic dye methods lack sensitivity when the HBA/HBD ratio is varied slightly in a eutectic mixture. Read More

Effects of Impacted Lower Third Molar Extraction on Periodontal Tissue of the Adjacent Second Molar.

Ther Clin Risk Manag 2021 22;17:235-247. Epub 2021 Mar 22.

Shanxi Medical University School and Hospital of Stomatology, Taiyuan, 030001, People's Republic of China.

The extraction of impacted lower third molars (ILTM) is one of the most common procedures in oral-maxillofacial surgery. Being adjacent to lower second molars, most impacted lower third molars often lead to distal periodontal defects of adjacent second molars. Several symptoms may occur after extraction, such as periodontal pocket formation, loss of attachment, alveolar bone loss and even looseness of second molar resulting in extraction. Read More

Orally administered saccharide-sequestering nanocomplex to manage carbohydrate metabolism disorders.

Sci Adv 2021 Mar 31;7(14). Epub 2021 Mar 31.

School of Biomedical Engineering, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai 200240, P. R. China.

Excessive carbohydrate intake is linked to the growing prevalence of diabetes, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), and obesity. α-Glucosidases inhibitor, the only Food and Drug Administration-approved drug for limiting the absorption of polysaccharides and disaccharides, is ineffective for monosaccharides. Here, we develop a boronic acid-containing polymer nanocomplex (Nano-Poly-BA), absorbing all saccharides into nanocomplex with the diol/boronic acid molar ratio far above 1, to prevent saccharides' absorption in the gut.

Department of Chemical Engineering, Indian Institute of Science Education and Research Bhopal, Bhopal, 462 066, Madhya Pradesh, India. Electronic address:

The emerging contaminants in wastewater discharged from numerous chemical process industries, pharmaceutical industries, textile, and wineries have attracted the attention of the scientific community due to their toxicity and persistence in the environment. The conventional techniques are incompetent to treat many of such recalcitrant toxic pollutants. To achieve high mineralization, advanced oxidation processes (AOPs) are found to be more efficient for the degradation of these organic pollutants without producing secondary pollutants with no/less amount of sludge.
