  2. Buena fe subjetiva y buena fe objetiva. Equívocos a los que conduce la falta de claridad en la distinción de tales conceptos

    2009-12-01

    Full Text Available El presente escrito tiene por objeto dejar en evidencia la confusión que en cierto sector de la jurisprudencia colombiana existe entre el concepto de buena fe objetiva y el concepto de buena fe subjetiva, que ha trascendido, por demás, a una parte de la doctrina y la legislación (C. Co., art. 863, pero, sobre todo, busca advertir sobre los graves equívocos a los que dicha confusión conduce, entre los que se cuentan: asumir que la buena objetiva comprende tanto una buena fe exenta de culpa como una buena fe en la que la diligencia no resulta exigible; pretender que la regla que prohíbe el ir contra los actos propios está regida por la buena fe subjetiva y que es una manifestación de la teoría de la apariencia; pretender proteger a nombre del principio de buena fe la representación mental del deudor que cree haber cumplido, desconociendo la exigencia de la buena fe objetiva que impone desplegar un comportamiento efectivo; y apreciar de manera errónea los alcances de la presunción de buena fe; equívocos que llevan a plantear la necesidad de retomar los senderos del derecho romano, en el que el concepto originario de buena fe estuvo siempre atado al deber de comportamiento probo y leal frente a la otra parte en el contrato, es decir, a lo que hoy entendemos como buena fe objetiva y donde la exigencia de buena fe en la posesión del comprador (convicción o creencia debió ser una utilización particular de la bona fides contractual adaptada en función de la problemática posesoria, que luego se extendería a otras situaciones que se engloban hoy bajo el nombre de la teoría de la apariencia.

    Full Text Available La sociedad por acciones simplificada –SAS–, como los demás esquemas societarios, se funda en y está informada por el principio de la buena fe. Pero a diferencia de los otros modelos, la SAS tiene concreciones particulares de la buena fe que permiten un amparo más efectivo y eficiente de los derechos de los socios y de los terceros, en la medida en que instituciones como el fraude a la ley, el perjuicio injusto a terceros, el abuso del derecho y el administrador de hecho, todos estructurados a partir de violaciones a la buena fe, permiten tramitar los eventos de responsabilidad por ilícitos atípicos y llegar incluso a desestimar por ello el atributo de la limitación de responsabilidad.

    2015-01-01

    La transgresión de la buena fe contractual aparece en la normativa como una causa de despido disciplinario muy difusa. Para concretarla, en el presente trabajo realizo un estudio de la doctrina jurisprudencial emitida los últimos años por el Tribunal Supremo y los Tribunales Superiores de Justicia, que han aportado las características comunes que reúnen los supuestos de vulneración, por parte de los trabajadores, del deber de buena fe que rige el vínculo laboral y que deben ser sancionados co...

    2000-01-01

    La buena fe es uno de aquellos conceptos que presentan unas raíces muy profundas en la historia de la humanidad ya que, incluso antes de la juridificación de las relaciones de los ciudadanos de Roma aparece esta idea. Esta larga historia que la legitima supone que el concepto de la buena fe haya pasado por muchas etapas. Desde interpretaciones que hoy en día claramente serían calificadas como de muy arcaicas, ya que presentan una formulación muy simple y exclusivamente moral, hasta concepcion...

    La recepción del tema de los derechos fundamentales del trabajador al interior de la empresa ha generado diversos debates jurídicos relevantes para el Derecho del trabajo. Uno de ellos es el de la posibilidad de que el ejercicio de esos derechos por parte del trabajador quede limitado por las exigencias derivadas del principio de buena fe contractual. Una comunidad donde esa discusión ha tenido especial importancia es en la doctrina laboral española. La revisión de ese debate sobre el rol de ...

  7. La presunción de buena fe en el sistema jurídico colombiano: una regla cuya aplicación tergiversada desnaturaliza el principio

    Martha Lucía Neme Villarreal

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available Una de las desafortunadas consecuencias de la ausencia de una adecuada diferenciación entre los conceptos de buena fe objetiva y buena fe subjetiva es la aplicación inapropiada de la presunción de buena fe, en cuanto aquello que constituye una excepción al régimen general, esto es, que la buena fe subjetiva posesoria se presume, se ha adoptado como regla general en materia de buena fe objetiva. Una tal generalización de la presunción; desnaturaliza el principio de buena fe, pues la regla general en materia de buena fe objetiva es que el cumplimiento de los deberes de comportamiento que emanan del principio no se presume, sino que se debe probar su efectiva realización, en tanto que los estados psicológicos o las creencias, en los que se funda la buena fe subjetiva, constituyen excepciones a la regla general en cuanto se permite su presunción. El Código de Bello consagra la regla de presunción de buena fe con alcances restringidos a los eventos de buena fe subjetiva y extenderla a situaciones en las que lo aplicable es la buena fe objetiva contraría la esencia misma del principio. En materia administrativa la Constitución colombiana consagra una excepción a la regla general que rige en materia de buena fe objetiva conforme a la cual la buena fe no se presume, al permitir que opere una presunción legal en favor del particular en las gestiones que este adelante ante aquella, como medida para equilibrar las relaciones entre la administración pública y los particulares, relación que se encuentra marcada por una fuerte asimetría.

  9. ANÁLISIS CRÍTICO SOBRE LA INCLUSIÓN DEL PRINCIPIO DE BUENA FE PROCESAL EN EL PROYECTO DE CÓDIGO PROCESAL CIVIL CHILENO

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Francisco Alberto Ruay Suarez

    2013-12-01

    Full Text Available La inclusión de la buena fe procesal como un principio formativo del proceso civil abre una serie de discusiones sobre el fin del proceso y su desarrollo. Implica necesariamente una posición ideológica sobre el alcance de los poderes del Estado. En este artículo el autor pretende mostrar que las consecuencias de su inclusión en nuestro procedimiento civil es nefasta, debido a que vulnera directamente derechos fundamentales como el derecho de defensa, e incluso vulnera el debido proceso, garantía fundamental en cualquier Estado democrático.

  10. VIGENCIA DEL PRINCIPIO DE LA BUENA FE EN EL DERECHO DEL TRABAJO CHILENO Validity of the principle of good faith in the Chilean labor law

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Pedro Irureta Uriarte

    2011-01-01

    Full Text Available La buena fe es un principio general del Derecho que, en el ámbito laboral, encuentra especial aplicación en la figura del contrato de trabajo. La buena fe es predicable tanto para el trabajador como para el empleador, y se verifica en los estadios previos a la contratación, durante el desarrollo mismo del contrato, así como al momento de la extinción. El Código del Trabajo chileno, sin referirse expresamente a este principio, ha terminado incorporando sus exigencias en distintas figuras laborales; cuestión que no impide que el núcleo esencial del principio se despliegue en toda su magnitud al momento de configurar los derechos y obligaciones de cada parte.Good faith is a general principle of law which, in the workplace, finds special application in the employment contract. This principle acts both from the worker and the employer and has to be present in stages prior to recruitment, during the fulfillment of the contract and the date of termination. The Chilean Labour Code, without explicitly referring to this principle, has incorporated its work demands in different shapes. This special technique does not interfere with a direct spillover of the legal core of that principle when the legal order configures the rights and obligations of each party.

    Full Text Available Casos suelen suceder en que la información del lector brilla por su solidez y su abundancia, siendo entonces inválido el interés del escritor por presentarle problemas y situaciones para su conocimiento, reflexión y buen consejo. En el caso presente, me parece que huelga todo comentario y que pintar la realidad y exponer las preocupaciones que de ella se desprenden, no sería más que una impertinencia y no quiero incurrir en ella a sabiendas de que el lector no ignora que hace mucho tiempo acabaron en Colombia las buenas costumbres.

    Full Text Available On-farm implementation of good production practices (GPP and effective translation of food safety knowledge to food-animal producers are recommended to achieve a safer food supply. A pilot study was conducted during 2009-2010 to assess the knowledge and attitudes towards food safety and reported use of GPp among a sample of 930 cattle producers in Santa Fe, Argentina. A response percentage of 31.8% (n = 296 was obtained. Several respondents indicated that they rarely or never isolate sick cattle (25.8%, keep records of diseases (32.5% or antimicrobial use (43.3%, and ensure that farm visitors and employees, respectively, wash their hands (79.2% and 31.2% and wear protective clothing (79.0% and 31.3%. Respondents' median use of 13 GPp was calculated and evaluated in a multivariable ordinal regression model. Previous training in food safety (OR = 2.59, often (OR= 5.89 or always (OR= 6.33 discussing food safety with the veterinarian, and being a dairy producer compared to cow-calf producer (OR= 3.86 were associated with a higher median use of GPP. Approximately 40% of the total variation in respondents' median use of GPp was attributable to veterinarians, indicating that they should have an important role in the education of cattle producers about food safety in Santa Fe. These preliminary results should be used to inform future research and decision-making about food safety and GPp in cattle production in Argentina.La implementación de buenas prácticas de producción (BPP en establecimientos pecuarios y la traducción efectiva de conocimiento sobre inocuidad de los alimentos a productores agropecuarios se recomienda para un suministro de alimentos más seguros.

    The Bottom-Up Energy Analysis System (BUENAS) calculates potential energy and greenhouse gas emission impacts of efficiency policies for lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, appliances, and industrial equipment through 2030. The model includes 16 end use categories and covers 11 individual countries plus the European Union. BUENAS is a bottom-up stock accounting model that predicts energy consumption for each type of equipment in each country according to engineering-based estimates of annual unit energy consumption, scaled by projections of equipment stock. Energy demand in each scenario is determined by equipment stock, usage, intensity, and efficiency. When available, BUENAS uses sales forecasts taken from country studies to project equipment stock. Otherwise, BUENAS uses an econometric model of household appliance uptake developed by the authors. Once the business as usual scenario is established, a high-efficiency policy scenario is constructed that includes an improvement in the efficiency of equipment installed in 2015 or later. Policy case efficiency targets represent current 'best practice' and include standards already established in a major economy or well-defined levels known to enjoy a significant market share in a major economy. BUENAS calculates energy savings according to the difference in energy demand in the two scenarios. Greenhouse gas emission mitigation is then calculated using a forecast of electricity carbon factor. We find that mitigation of 1075 mt annual CO2 emissions is possible by 2030 from adopting current best practices of appliance efficiency policies. This represents a 17 % reduction in emissions in the business as usual case in that year.

    Buena Vista Valley is a small Tertiary Basin located in Northwestern Nevada. Oil was discovered in a mineral exploration hole drilled by Independence Mining Company Inc. (IMC) during October, 1993 near Kyle Hot Springs in Buena Vista Valley. The hole flowed unchecked for four and a half days, producing an estimated 500 barrels of oil with large volumes of hot water, before it was plugged and abandoned. In August of 1994 a continuous core hole was drilled by Barton/Evans to further evaluate the oil occurrences in the IMC hole. Two oil zones were found in the Barton/Evans hole, both of which have similar characteristics to the oil produced in the IMC hole. Pristane and phytane ratios (pr/ph) for oil samples from both holes are low (<0.1) which suggests that the source rock for this oil is from non marine lacustrine Tertiary sediments. There are no detectable hydrocarbons in the gas emanating from Kyle Hot Springs which indicates that the current day geothermal system is not in direct contact with any oil accumulations. Organic rich Triassic marine rocks which outcrop west of Buena Vista Valley, are over mature which supports the hypothesis that unexposed organic rich Tertiary rocks occurring in the deeper portions of the basin acted as the source for the oil occurrences in the IMC hole and in the Barton/Evans hole. In 1974, Standard Oil drilled an 11,000 foot well south of Buena Vista Valley in the Carson Sink and encountered organic rich Tertiary sediments at about 3500`. If this organic rich unit extends north into Buena Vista Valley, local geothermal anomalies might play an important role in the generation of oil. Earlier researches have reported that such anomalies do exist with temperature gradients approaching 100 C per kilometer west of Kyle Hot Springs in an area where gravity data suggest a relatively thick interval of Tertiary rocks have accumulated.

    The Permo-Triassic archosauromorph record is crucial to understand the impact of the Permo-Triassic mass extinction on the early evolution of the group and its subsequent dominance in Mesozoic terrestrial ecosystems. However, the Permo-Triassic archosauromorph record is still very poor in most continents and hampers the identification of global macroevolutionary patterns. Here we describe cranial and postcranial bones from the Permo-Triassic Buena Vista Formation of northeastern Uruguay that contribute to increase the meagre early archosauromorph record from South America. A basioccipital fused to both partial exoccipitals and three cervical vertebrae are assigned to Archosauromorpha based on apomorphies or a unique combination of characters. The archosauromorph remains of the Buena Vista Formation probably represent a multi-taxonomic assemblage composed of non-archosauriform archosauromorphs and a 'proterosuchid-grade' animal. This assemblage does not contribute in the discussion of a Late Permian or Early Triassic age for the Buena Vista Formation, but reinforces the broad palaeobiogeographic distribution of 'proterosuchid grade' diapsids in Permo-Triassic beds worldwide.

The Spanish legislation about those controversial topics could also exemplify the changing perspective about ethical codes and ethical committees, because now they are not only centered on rights, and guarantees for the subjects involved in experimentation, but on good practice. Research Ethics has usually been related to norms, and especially to respect for human rights in the biomedical field. From the Nurmberg Code, the Helsinki Declaration, the Oviedo Convention to the Addition Protocol on biomedical research, the perspective of rights prevailed over a wider perspective, which now aims to promote the researchers’ commitment and their responsibilities to health and welfare; the welfare of every subject, humans, and non-humans, and in every context, including the developing countries. The UNESCO Declaration could expand this perspective, including social justice issues in the agenda of research Ethics, usually centered on autonomy, as basic principle, and on the human rights approach. The article would analyze the good practice approach, with guidelines expanding the agenda of research Ethics in order to promote a better governance of scientific practice.La Ley 14/2007 regula la investigación biomédica, incluida la investigación con células troncales y la clonación con fines terapéuticos.

  8. INTERPRETATION OF GRAVITY SURVEYS IN GRASS AND BUENA VISTA VALLEYS, NEVADA

    Energy Technology Data Exchange (ETDEWEB)

    Goldstein, N.E.; Paulsson, B.

    1977-12-01

    Continuing the LBL study of geothermal exploration techniques and the assessment of potential reservoirs begun in 1974, detailed gravity surveys were made in the vicinity of Leach Hot Springs, Grass Valley, and Kyle Hot Springs, Buena Vista Valley, in northern Nevada. The terrain-corrected Bouguer gravity values were gridded, corrected for regional gradients (Grass Valley only) bya least squares polynomial fit to the data, and then processed by means of an inversion scheme to yield a contour map of the basement configuration. The three-dimensional inversion algorithm assumes a two-layer earth of variable first layer thickness but constant density contrast between layers. Although a fit to observed data can be obtained for a range of density contrasts, a contrast of 0.06 g/cm{sup 3} gave interpreted results most consistent with results from other geophysical data: (a) agreement between the minimum thickness contours and the margins of exposed Paleozoic rocks and Cretaceous intrusives; (b) agreement between the calculated basement depth and report information from a deep drill hole in Grass Valley; and (c) agreement between estimated basement depths and interpretation of seismic reflection-refraction data. To illustrate the information value of the depth-to-basement calculations, we show comparisons of gravity, electrical resistivity, and seismic interpretations along selected profile lines. Gravity and seismology gave nearly identical results for the location and dip of the Hot Springs fault in Grass Valley. The gravity interpretation agreed reasonably well with that of the electrical basement, although the electrical basement is consistently 200-400 meters deeper than the density or velocity interface.

    The objective of this work was the development and establishment of a specific analytical protocol for the determination of the {sup 59}Ni, {sup 63}Ni, {sup 55}Fe, {sup 99}Tc and {sup 94}Nb radionuclides in low and intermediate radioactive waste samples of Almirante Alvaro Alberto Nuclear Power Plant, CNAAA, located in the city of Angra dos Reis, RJ. The separation and purification techniques used have taken into account the particularities of each radionuclide studied. Chemical separation methods were used, as well as carriers and radioisotope tracers, and ion-exchange and extraction chromatography involving specific resins. The main techniques used for the analysis and determination of the radionuclides were Liquid Scintillation Counting (LSC) and Gamma Spectrometry. Also used were Atomic Emission Spectroscopy with Inductively Coupled Plasma (ICP-AES) and Neutron Activation Analysis (NAA) for the chemical yield determination. Concerning to the {sup 59}Ni, {sup 63}Ni, {sup 55}Fe radionuclides, the methodology of sequential separation proved to be very appropriate for their separation and determination, as could be observed by the results obtained. Chemical yields in the range from 39 to 100%, and LSC counting efficiencies in the range of 37.8% for {sup 55}Fe, and 71.5% for {sup 63}Ni, are in accordance with the results found in the literature. The spectra of LSC showed that the methodology used to separation and purification of these radionuclides was very successful. The results for {sup 59}Ni have shown that the use of a {sup 55}Fe certified standard for calibration of the equipment was a viable alternative. In the case of the {sup 99}Tc radionuclide the use of rhenium as carrier and chemical yield monitor, resulted in high chemical yields. Use of Gamma Spectrometry analysis made it possible to check that the main interfering agents were actually removed with the combined use of anion exchange chromatography and TEVA resin. The chemical yield of {sup 94}Nb was

En este marco, el objetivo central de esta investigación empírica ha sido analizar las características del “buen o buena docente” desde la percepción de sujetos egresados de educación secundaria de escuelas públicas y privadas de Lima (Perú. Los resultados de este estudio cualitativo, basado en entrevistas semiestructuradas a ocho estudiantes que han egresado, ha permitido describir, por un lado, los rasgos del buen personal docente en relación a su alumnado, caracterizado por un estilo vinculante expresado en el compromiso con este, en una percepción positiva y actitud motivadora y una calidad afectiva en la interacción profesorado-alumnado; y, por otro lado, rasgos en relación con su profesión como: su pasión por enseñar; su dominio sobre contenidos y la organización de la clase. El estudio concluye que el hecho que todos los egresados y egresadas hayan podido recordar al menos a un profesor o profesora como buen o buena docente revela la heterogeneidad de tipos de docentes que exige superar generalizaciones negativas y que la imagen docente es una construcción colectiva en varias promociones. Una de las implicaciones de este estudio es recuperar la voz de los exalumnos y exalumnas, tanto para el campo de las investigaciones como en el de la política educativa, por contener un valioso potencial para mejorar nuestra comprensión de la experiencia escolar y de la relación docente-estudiantes.

  13. Dos traducciones costarricenses de Guy de Maupassant

    Full Text Available La historia de la traducción literaria en Costa Rica ya tiene buena documentación académica que corrobora su desarrollo y su persistencia. Desde los años tempranos del siglo xx, no pocos escritores dedicaron su pluma, a modo de oficio paralelo, tanto a su creación literaria como a la traducción. Sin duda alguna, porque las obras que tradujeron significaban, en buena medida, sus verdaderos modelos de escritura, pero también porque como traductores, entendieron desde temprano que misión suya era también verter al español, y para Costa Rica, obras que de otro modo difícilmente se conocerían con prontitud en el medio. Un insigne escritor costarricense de aquella etapa inicial de las letras nacionales fue Alejandro Alvarado Quirós (1876-1945, autor de crónicas, crítica literaria y ensayos de singular interés. Como escritor asociado al modernismo costarricense, fue asiduo lector de las letras francesas de la segunda mitad del siglo xix, y varios de los grandes narradores del realismo y el simbolismo francés fueron sus preferidos. En 1912 reunió en el pequeño tomo titulado Lilas y resedas (Imprenta Alcina, San José varios cuentos franceses, especialmente del ilustre cuentista Guy de Maupassant. De esa colección se han extraído dos, para esta sección de Letras: «Nuestras cartas» y «Adiós», que pulcramente Alvarado Quirós vertió al español; desde luego, un español culto, al modo del discurso modernista, como conscientemente el traductor ejecutó su labor. Como Alvarado Quirós, no pocos modernistas se vieron seducidos por el oficio de traducir: Roberto Brenes Mesén, Ricardo Fernández Guardia, Fabio Baudrit, José Fabio Garnier. Fue una empresa que se fue convirtiendo en tarea obligada y, con el tiempo, en una especie de tradición solapada, que hasta nuestros días se extiende.

    Full Text Available En este artículo intento responder a la pregunta de si son –o al menos pueden ser– pluralistas las éticas de la vida buena. Por tales se entienden las éticas teleológicas, centradas en el fin último o bien supremo del individuo humano. ¿Pueden, pese a su aparente individualismo, ser éticas pluralistas? Para responder, me circunscribo al Filebo de Platón, en que el autor, superando las visiones que identifican el bien humano con la vida de placer o con la vida del conocimiento, lo identifica con una vida mixta, que es una mezcla de las dos. Desarrolla, pues, a mi modo de ver, una ética estructuralmente pluralista: (1 por la actitud, eminentemente dialógica, de sus interlocutores; (2 por el método de la división que emplea, el cual va de la pluralidad indefinida a la unidad, y de esta a una pluralidad definida; (3 por el principio ontológico de lo Uno-Múltiple en que se funda; (4 por el contenido que asigna al bien de la existencia humana. Sobre todo por este contenido –esencialmente inclusivo– la ética del Filebo ha ejercido una influencia decisiva en la filosofía moral igualmente pluralista de la Ética a Nicómaco.

El trabajo se propone sistematizar la experiencia de implementación de un programa que se está llevando a cabo actualmente con 74 productores que se localizan en el partido de Pilar, uno de los más afectados por el avance de la urbanización. El mismo, denominado PRO.A.A.S. (Promoción de la Actividad Agropecuaria Sustentable, se ha instituido durante 2007 a través de un convenio formalizado entre la Municipalidad de Pilar y el Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria. Tiene como propósito que los horticultores, en su gran mayoría de origen boliviano, mejoren sus procedimientos a través de “buenas prácticas” tecno-productivas. El trabajo pretende determinar en qué medida este tipo de experiencias interpelan al investigador sobre los modos de la urbanización en una metrópolis como Buenos Aires considerando que el periurbano, un espacio de interfase urbano-rural, constituye un territorio “de borde”, con la carga simbólica y las dificultades de abordaje metodológico que su situación “transicional” trae aparejada.

    By 2030, the population of the Arkansas Headwaters Region, which includes all of Chaffee and Lake Counties and parts of Custer, Fremont, and Park Counties, Colorado, is forecast to increase about 73 percent. As the region’s population increases, it is anticipated that groundwater will be used to meet much of the increased demand. In September 2009, the U.S. Geological Survey, in cooperation with the Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District and with support from the Colorado Water Conservation Board; Chaffee, Custer, and Fremont Counties; Buena Vista, Cañon City, Poncha Springs, and Salida; and Round Mountain Water and Sanitation District, began a 3-year study of groundwater and surface-water conditions in the Buena Vista-Salida Basin. This report presents results from the study of the Buena Vista-Salida Basin including synoptic gain-loss measurements and water budgets of Cottonwood, Chalk, and Browns Creeks, changes in groundwater storage, estimates of specific yield, transmissivity and hydraulic conductivity from aquifer tests and slug tests, an evaluation of areas with potential for underground water storage, and estimates of stream-accretion response-time factors for hypothetical recharge and selected streams in the basin. The four synoptic measurements of flow of Cottonwood, Chalk, and Browns Creeks, suggest quantifiable groundwater gains and losses in selected segments in all three perennial streams. The synoptic measurements of flow of Cottonwood and Browns Creeks suggest a seasonal variability, where positive later-irrigation season values in these creeks suggest groundwater discharge, possibly as infiltrated irrigation water. The overall sum of gains and losses on Chalk Creek does not indicate a seasonal variability but indicates a gaining stream in April and August/September. Gains and losses in the measured upper segments of Chalk Creek likely are affected by the Chalk Cliffs Rearing Unit (fish hatchery). Monthly water budgets were estimated for

Thanks to the experience in lot of adults´ literacy courses, using a methodology consistent with the goal of learning, we show a good formative experience, which although obvious, it allows us to realize factors such as the shortage of technological resources, adult psychology and the need to educate not only new technological capabilities but also to transmit values essential to ease management in the knowledge society.

    Background Hotspot detection and characterization has played an increasing role in understanding the maintenance and transmission of zoonotic pathogens. Identifying the specific environmental factors (or their correlates) that influence reservoir host abundance help increase understanding of how pathogens are maintained in natural systems and are crucial to identifying disease risk. However, most recent studies are performed at macro-scale and describe broad temporal patterns of population abundances. Few have been conducted at a microscale over short time periods that better capture the dynamical patterns of key populations. These finer resolution studies may better define the likelihood of local pathogen persistence. This study characterizes the landscape distribution and spatio-temporal dynamics of Oligoryzomys fulvescens (O. fulvescens), an important mammalian reservoir in Central America. Methods Information collected in a longitudinal study of rodent populations in the community of Agua Buena in Tonosí, Panama, between April 2006 and December 2009 was analyzed using non-spatial analyses (box plots) and explicit spatial statistical tests (correlograms, SADIE and LISA). A 90 node grid was built (raster format) to design a base map. The area between the nodes was 0.09 km2 and the total study area was 6.43 km2 (2.39 x 2.69 km). The temporal assessment dataset was divided into four periods for each year studied: the dry season, rainy season, and two months-long transitions between seasons (the months of April and December). Results There were heterogeneous patterns in the population densities and degrees of dispersion of O. fulvescens that varied across seasons and among years. The species typically was locally absent during the late transitional months of the season, and re-established locally in subsequent years. These populations re-occurred in the same area during the first three years but subsequently re-established further south in the final year of the

  20. The DosS-DosT/DosR Mycobacterial Sensor System

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    2013-07-01

    Full Text Available DosS/DosR is a two-component regulatory system in which DosS, a heme-containing sensor also known as DevS, under certain conditions undergoes autophosphorylation and then transfers the phosphate to DosR, a DNA-binding protein that controls the entry of Mycobacterium tuberculosis and other mycobacteria into a latent, dormant state. DosT, a second sensor closely related to DosS, is present in M. tuberculosis and participates in the control of the dormancy response mediated by DosR. The binding of phosphorylated DosR to DNA initiates the expression of approximately fifty dormancy-linked genes. DosT is accepted to be a gas sensor that is activated in the ferrous state by the absence of an oxygen ligand or by the binding of NO or CO. DosS functions in a similar fashion as a gas sensor, but contradictory evidence has led to the suggestion that it also functions as a redox state sensor. This review focuses on the structure, biophysical properties, and function of the DosS/DosT heme sensors.

O autor defende a tese de que o erro está no método, e não é à toa, nem por má vontade dos profissionais. Acima de tudo, o método praticado nos consultórios públicos e privados do país serviria ao capitalismo de várias maneiras. Dantas começa descrevendo o atendimento imediatista, que permite o pronto retorno do trabalhador a seu posto de trabalho. Nesta prática, prevalece uma abordagem rápida em que a comunicação é pautada puramente pelos sintomas. O paciente é reduzido a sua parte com problema ou até mesmo ao problema de sua parte. Promove-se o consumo de exames e prescreve-se a dependência de medicamentos, atendendo aos interesses de uma das indústrias mais lucrativas do mundo. Esse círculo se fecha com a produção de novos sintomas gerados pelos tratamentos químicos propostos (iatrogenia e, assim, novas demandas por serviços desse mesmo tipo.

    Full Text Available La UNASUR se ha destacado desde sus inicios en la compleja labor de mediación y resolución de conflictos internacionales. Para ello, esta entidad multilateral ha apelado a distintas fórmulas políticas tendientes al encausamiento de problemáticas y conflictos apartados del camino de la institucionalidad y de los medios tradicionales de resolución. Con todo, y pese a la búsqueda de caminos alternativos, han sido las cumbres presidenciales la principal herramienta destinada a encontrar soluciones innovadoras y respetuosas del orden democrático y constitucional de los países sudamericanos. En este artículo se analiza de manera específica la actuación de la unasur en dos casos de profunda gravedad institucional: el intento de golpe de Estado ocurrido en Ecuador el 30 de septiembre de 2010 y el derrocamiento del ex presidente Fernando Lugo en Paraguay en junio de 2012. Luego de analizar estos dos casos extremos, y las implicancias políticas generadas, se avanza en una visión comprensiva acerca del éxito o el fracaso del papel político de la unasur como instancia de resolución de conflictos a nivel internacional.

    In southern South America the acquisition of high-quality Holocene paleoclimate data is a priority due to the paucity of complete, continuous and well dated records. Here we report preliminary results from a combined sedimentological and palynological study of an alluvial fan sequence and the laterally connected sedimentary deposits of the Vega de la Cueva profile at Agua Buena east of the Andes in central Argentina. The main geomorphological units of the area were identified and mapped based on satellite image analysis and multiple field surveys. The sedimentological and pollen results allowed us to reconstruct the development of some environments. The Agua Buena record corresponds to the distal facies of the Arroyo Bayo alluvial fan starting the aggradation process prior to ca. 4100 cal yr BP. The organic-rich levels found were formed during the development of wetlands (vegas) dominated by Cyperaceae, Juncaceae and Poaceae. These highly productive environments with almost permanent water saturation were important between 4100 and 2800 cal yr BP, indicating more stable conditions. After 2800 cal yr BP, the organic content was comparatively lower with increasing sedimentation rates that are indicative of higher fluvial discharges. This information is fundamental to interpret both the pollen and charcoal records of the area and to evaluate their representativeness and potential to reconstruct past local and/or regional vegetation.

    2013-01-01

    Full Text Available The Fe(6 nm/FePt film with perpendicular magnetization was deposited on the glass substrate. To study the oxygen diffusion effect on the coupling of Fe/FePt bilayer, the plasma oxidation with 0.5~7% oxygen flow ratio was performed during sputtered part of Fe layer and formed the FeOx(3 nm/Fe(3 nm/FePt trilayer. Two-step magnetic hysteresis loops were found in trilayer with oxygen flow ratio above 1%. The magnetization in FeOx and Fe/FePt layers was decoupled. The moments in FeOx layer were first reversed and followed by coupled Fe/FePt bilayer. The trilayer was annealed again at 500°C and 800°C for 3 minutes. When the FeOx(3 nm/Fe(3 nm/FePt trilayer was annealed at 500°C, the layers structure was changed to FeOx(6 nm/FePt bilayer due to oxygen diffusion. The hard-magnetic FeOx(6 nm/FePt film was coupled with single switching field. The FeOx/(disordered FePt layer structure was observed with further annealing at 800°C and presented soft-magnetic loop. In summary, the coupling between soft-magnetic Fe, FeOx layer, and hard-magnetic L10 FePt layer can be controlled by the oxygen diffusion behavior, and the oxidation of Fe layer was tuned by the annealing temperature. The ordered L10 FePt layer was deteriorated by oxygen and became disordered FePt when the annealed temperature was up to 800°C.

  19. DOS cones along atomic chains

    Science.gov (United States)

    Kwapiński, Tomasz

    2017-03-01

    The electron transport properties of a linear atomic chain are studied theoretically within the tight-binding Hamiltonian and the Green’s function method. Variations of the local density of states (DOS) along the chain are investigated. They are crucial in scanning tunnelling experiments and give important insight into the electron transport mechanism and charge distribution inside chains. It is found that depending on the chain parity the local DOS at the Fermi level can form cone-like structures (DOS cones) along the chain. The general condition for the local DOS oscillations is obtained and the linear behaviour of the local density function is confirmed analytically. DOS cones are characterized by a linear decay towards the chain which is in contrast to the propagation properties of charge density waves, end states and Friedel oscillations in one-dimensional systems. We find that DOS cones can appear due to non-resonant electron transport, the spin–orbit scattering or for chains fabricated on a substrate with localized electrons. It is also shown that for imperfect chains (e.g. with a reduced coupling strength between two neighboring sites) a diamond-like structure of the local DOS along the chain appears.

Para isso, realiza-se um estudo descritivo, com abordagem predominantemente qualitativa, por meio de pesquisa documental e análise de conteúdo, com consultas aos sites oficiais dos tribunais de contas estaduais. O universo da pesquisa corresponde às 27 unidades federativas do Brasil, excluídas aquelas que não possuíam nos sites oficiais de seus tribunais de contas todas as informações propostas para o estudo - tratando-se dos estados do Acre, Amapá, Rondônia, Roraima, Maranhão e Piauí -, resultando em uma amostra de 21 unidades federativas. Os resultados apontam que os tribunais de contas dos estados das regiões Centro-Oeste, Sudeste e Sul apresentaram maior assiduidade quanto à divulgação do parecer de auditoria nos seus sites. Verifica-se, também, que há inúmeras ordenações feitas pelos auditores aos órgãos públicos no que concerne à aplicação das normas referentes à contabilidade do setor público. Ao final, conclui-se que existem divergências no conteúdo informacional dos pareceres prévios dos tribunais de contas dos estados brasileiros, embora tratem de matéria similar. Vê-se, também, que os gestores públicos das unidades federativas do Brasil descumpriram, em alguns quesitos, a Lei nº 4.320/1964, a Lei nº 101/2000 e a Constituição Federal.

    We measured the thermopower of LaFe11.6Si1.4 and its hydride LaFe11.6Si1.4Hy to investigate changes in the electronic structure induced by hydriding. Using a model based on a density-of-states (DOS) function we can accurately describe a non-linear temperature dependence of the thermopower over a wide temperature range. The fit of the model to experimental data yields a significantly broader maximum in the DOS function near the Fermi energy of the hydride as compared to LaFe11.6Si1.4. Additionally, a new scattering mechanism leading to a decreased thermopower is observed in LaFe11.6Si1.4Hy at low temperatures which is attributed to scattering of electrons on magnetic excitation.

    Full Text Available La artritis séptica de pubis u osteomielitis púbica es la infección que compromete la sínfisis pubiana y su articulación. Es poco frecuente, representando menos del 1% de las osteomielitis. Afecta más a menudo a atletas jóvenes y a mujeres que se someten a cirugía ginecológica o urológica. Se presenta con fiebre y dolor púbico, irradiado a genitales, que aumenta con la movilización de la cadera lo que produce claudicación de la marcha. Debe hacerse el diagnóstico diferencial con la osteítis del pubis que es una condición inflamatoria estéril. La punción guiada por imagen suele ser necesaria para el diagnóstico diferencial con la osteítis del pubis. El diagnóstico se basa en la clínica apoyada en el aislamiento microbiológico, métodos por imágenes e incremento de las proteínas de fase aguda. Los agentes etiológicos más comúnmente encontrados son Staphylococcus aureus, seguidos de bacilos gram negativos, o pueden ser polimicrobianos en posquirúrgicos. El tratamiento antibiótico se ajusta al germen aislado por cultivo, además de antiinflamatorios y reposo. El desbridamiento quirúrgico se requiere hasta en el 55% de los casos. Se recomiendan antibióticos por 6 semanas. Se presentan dos casos de osteomielitis del pubis por S. aureus, con buena respuesta al tratamiento. Ambos pacientes eran jóvenes y deportistas.

  6. Characteristics and biotechnology applications of aliphatic amino acid hydroxylases belonging to the Fe(II)/α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenase superfamily.

    The asymmetric hydroxylation of inactive carbon atoms is still an important reaction in the industrial synthesis of valuable chiral compounds such as pharmaceuticals and fine chemicals. Applications of monooxygenation enzymes, like cytochrome P450 monooxygenases, flavin-containing monooxygenases, and Fe(II)/α-ketoglutarate-dependent dioxygenases (Fe/αKG-DOs), are strongly desired as hydroxylation biocatalysts because they have great advantages in regio- and stereoselectivity of the reactions. Recently, several novel Fe/αKG-DOs have been found to catalyze the asymmetric hydroxylation of aliphatic amino acids. Depending on their amino acid sequences, these Fe/αKG-DOs catalyze different types of regioselective hydroxylations, or C3-, C4-, and C5-hydroxylation. Additionally, most also have stereoselective sulfoxidation activities. Here, we have reviewed the characterization and process development of this novel functioning group of Fe/αKG-DOs.

    Full Text Available Resumen Merced a los inventarios de bienes de la ciudad de Burgos a lo largo del Setecientos, se accede a las disponibilidades de dinero en efectivo y a los tipos de monedas que los hogares atesoraban en el interior de sus viviendas. No en todos ellos hallamos liquidez monetaria. A la postre, la tipología del numerario diferenciaba, de manera notoria, a quienes, ya fuera al hilo de su óbito o en sus existencias cotidianas, eran poseedores de “buena” moneda –en plata y en oro– de aquellos que únicamente disponían de vellón, la “mala” moneda. Empero, los hogares acaparaban los metales “nobles” no sólo a través del numerario sino también en las cuberterías, en los relojes, en las alhajas y adornos personales, en algunos pertrechos religiosos, etcétera. La ley de Gresham, “La moneda buena expulsa a la mala”, se traducía en la práctica no sólo en la circulación habitual de la moneda de peor calidad cuanto en que los hogares menos afortunados disponían, cuando les era posible, de la moneda más modesta. La buena moneda era propiedad de los aristócratas y los privilegiados. Abstract With probate inventories in the city of Burgos during the eighteenth century, we gain access to the available cash and the types of coins hoarded in households. Not in all of them we find liquidity. Ultimately, type of cash made a noticeable difference between those who, close to their deaths or in their daily lives, had “good money –silver or gold– and those who only possessed fleece –the bad money. However, households hoarded “noble” metals not only through cash but also in cutlery, clocks, jewellery and personal ornaments, some religious supplies, and so on. Gresham’s law, “The good money drives out the bad”, was put into practice not only in the normal movement of poorer quality coin as but also in the fact that the less fortunate households when they could, possessed more modest currency. The coin was owned by

    Full Text Available El objetivo del presente trabajo es analizar el aporte del enfoque de las capacidades de Amartya Sen para el razonamiento ético en salud pública. A partir de las críticas del enfoque de las capacidades al utilitarismo, se propone una concepción de salud sustentada en cuatro características: una noción de vida buena de carácter pluralista, la expansión de la libertad como fundamento ético de las acciones en salud, la concepción de la persona como agente y el reconocimiento de la visión interna de la salud, basada en una objetividad posicional. El aporte del enfoque de las capacidades para el razonamiento ético en salud pública puede resumirse en el reconocimiento de cuatro aspectos: la insuficiencia de la asistencia sanitaria como criterio de la ventaja individual, la equidad en salud como un aspecto fundamental de la justicia social, la relevancia de la visión que tienen las personas con relación a su propia salud y el desarrollo de las capacidades como finalidad de las políticas públicas en el campo de la salud pública.

    Density functional theory (DFT) calculation has been performed to study the electronic structure and chemical bonding in FeSiAl alloy. These calculations are useful to understand the magnetic properties of this alloy. Our results show that the mean magnetic moment of Fe atoms decreases due to the crystal structure and the effect of Si and Al. Depending on the environment, the magnetic moment of one Fe site (Fe{sub 1}) increases to about 14.3% while of the other site (Fe{sub 2}) decreases to about 25.9% (compared with pure bcc Fe). All metal–metal overlap interactions are bonding and slightly weaker than those found in the bcc Fe structure. The electronic structure (DOS) shows an important hybridization among Fe, Si and Al atoms, thus making asymmetric the PDOS with a very slight polarization of Al and Si atoms. Our study explains the importance of crystal structure in determining the magnetic properties of the alloys. FeSiAl is a good candidate for electromagnetic interference shielding combining low price and good mechanical and magnetic properties. - Highlights: • The mean magnetic moment of the Fe atoms decreases compared to bcc Fe. • There are strong bonding interactions among the Fe, Si and Al atoms. • This structure has a stable ferromagnetism. • The Fe–Fe bonds distances elongates and are weaker than those in the bcc Fe.

  2. Phonon density of states in nanocrystalline 57Fe

    2003-03-01

    The Born–von Karman model is used to calculate phonon density of states (DOS) of nanocrystalline bcc Fe. It is found that there is an anisotropic stiffening in the interatomic force constants and hence there is shrinking in the nearest-neighbour distances in the nanophase. This leads to additional vibrational modes above the bulk phonons near the bottom of the phonon band. It is found that the high energy phonon modes of nanophase Fe are the surface modes. The calculated phonon DOS closely agree with the experimental data except a peak at 37 meV. The calculated phonon dispersion relations are also compared with those of the bulk phonons and anomalous behaviour is discussed in detail. The specific heat in nanophase enhances as compared to bulk phase at low temperatures and the calculated Debye temperature agrees with the experimental results. It is predicted that the nanocrystalline Fe may consist of about 14 GPa pressure.

Diferenciamos os acting-out, a passagem ao ato, os sintomas, as inibições e a angústia fazendo uma duplicação do esquema de Lacan levando em consideração os registros do simbólico, do real e do imaginário. Esse esquema permite uma abordagem da questão dos atos do sujeito sem cair em uma perplexidade do clínico, nem na confusão entre os atos e a ação. Permite também uma melhor orientação do clínico em relação às diversas modalidades de respostas subjetivas que não se restringem à questão sintomática, que é o campo inaugural da clínica psicanalítica desde a sua fundação por Sigmund Freud. Acreditamos contribuir, assim, para um maior esclarecimento desse esquema no ensino de Lacan e para que ele possa servir de orientação para o tratamento dos atos do sujeito na clínica.

  5. Graphyne-supported single Fe atom catalysts for CO oxidation.

    2015-01-14

    Single atom catalysts (SACs) are highly desirable for the effort to maximize the efficiency of metal atom use. However, the synthesis of SACs is a major challenge that largely depends on finding an appropriate supporting substrate to achieve a well-defined and highly dispersed single atom. This work demonstrates that, based on the density functional theory (DFT) calculation, graphyne is a good substrate for single Fe atom catalysts. The Fe atom can be tightly embedded in a graphyne sheet with a high binding energy of ∼4.99 eV and a high diffusion energy barrier of ∼1.0 eV. The graphyne-supported Fe (Fe-graphyne) SAC shows high catalytic activity towards CO oxidation, which is often regarded as a prototype reaction for designing atomic-scale catalysts. We studied the adsorption characteristics of CO and O2 on Fe-graphyne SACs, and simulated the reaction mechanism of CO oxidation involving Fe-graphyne. The simulation results indicate that O2 binding on Fe-graphyne is much stronger than that of CO, and the adsorbed O2 prior to occupy the Fe atoms as the co-existence of O2 and CO. The reaction of CO oxidation by adsorbed O2 on Fe-graphyne SACs favors to proceed via the Eley-Rideal (ER) mechanism with the energy barrier of as low as ∼0.21 eV in the rate-limiting step. Calculation of the electronic density of states (DOS) of each reaction step demonstrates that the strong interaction of the O2 and Fe adatom promotes the CO oxidation on Fe-graphyne SACs. The results presented here suggest that graphyne could provide a unique platform to synthesize SACs, and the Fe-graphyne SACs could find potential use in solving the growing environmental problems caused by CO emission from automobiles and industrial processes, in removing CO contamination from vehicle exhaust and in fuel cells.

    Full Text Available La violencia interna en el lugar de trabajo es la que tiene lugar entre los trabajadores, incluidos mandos y directivos. Incluye la violencia física, el acoso sexual y el acoso psicológico, abarcando también otras conductas de violencia psicológica diferenciadas de éste. Debe ser considerada como un riesgo psicosocial, que supone un peligro importante para la salud y seguridad de las personas, y tiene repercusiones organizacionales a través de costes directos e indirectos. Considerar la violencia interna con este enfoque de riesgo laboral, supone que su abordaje se ha de realizar aplicando los principios de la acción preventiva, a la vez que permite adoptar estrategias de actuación dirigidas a la prevención del fenómeno. Las principales organizaciones a nivel mundial y nacional proponen la implementación de una política de prevención de la violencia en el lugar de trabajo. Este artículo trata sobre la conveniencia del desarrollo e implementación en las organizaciones de una política de prevención de la violencia interna, de carácter integral e integrado, que involucre a toda la organización, orientada a lograr entornos de trabajo más saludables y con un enfoque centrado en los factores organizativos y psicosociales. En el artículo se contemplan las premisas esenciales de esa política preventiva de la violencia interna, abordándose también los momentos básicos de la estrategia preventiva: - La evaluación de riesgo psicosociales. - La política de buenas prácticas. - Los procedimientos de gestión de conflictos y acoso psicológico en el trabajo. - Las estrategias de comunicación organizacional y las acciones formativas. Para conseguir auténtica efectividad, las políticas de prevención de la violencia interna deben incorporarse al Sistema de Gestión de la Prevención de la organización, que, a su vez, estará integrado en todos los sistemas de gestión restantes de la empresa.

    In this work we aimed to study the structural, electronic, and magnetic properties of the Fe-doped GaP nanotubes (GaPNTs). The method, utilized in this work is based on first-principle calculations that are applied to the case studies; (5,5) armchair, (8,0) zigzag GaPNTs, and Fe-doped GaPNTs. The results of simulation show that there is distortion around Fe impurity with respect to the pristine GaPNTs for Fe-doped (5,5) and (8,0) GaPNTs. The total density of states (DOS) indicates that Fe-doped GaPNTs show the metal behavior. Furthermore, it is perceived that both Fe-doped (5,5) and (8,0) GaPNTs are magnetic systems while pristine GaPNTs do not show magnetic behavior. The study suggests that such Fe-doped nanotubes may be useful in nanomagnets and spintronics.

Discutir o papel e o significado das remessas implica, assim, uma discussão em torno da existência (ou não de um "campo de positividades" do fenômeno migratório internacional. O principal objetivo deste artigo é contribuir para essa discussão por meio de um estudo empírico do caso brasileiro que adota as remessas como foco. Para tanto, é identificado o perfil das remessas e dos remetentes, assim como os objetivos e os beneficiários do dinheiro enviado. A pesquisa usa uma abordagem baseada em entrevistas em profundidade e survey não-representativo (Boston e Governador Valadares.DO REMITTANCES contribute to local development and the reduction of poverty? What are the consequences of the dollars sent by the migrants to the people, families, and organizations that receive them in the cities of origin? These are the key questions that recent studies have raised. According to some authors "migration is inevitable and has the potential to be quite positive in terms of development and reduction of poverty. The policies that have their origins in this principle will be more successful than those that attempt to oppose, intransigently, both globalization and the migration of people in space". Do current international migrations produce positive local development effects? The main objective of this article is to contribute to this discussion through an empirical study of the Brazilian case, which takes remittances as its focus. Thus, we identify who the immigrants are who send remittances from the United States to Brazil, to what ends the remittances are directed, who the beneficiaries are, and how the remittances

    Full Text Available En muchas ocasiones, los pacientes con cáncer no expresan su dolor por miedo a que el médico desvíe su atención hacia este síntoma, en lugar de centrarse en el tratamiento de su enfermedad principal. No obstante, el paciente debe saber que el tratamiento de su dolor no solo no interfiere con la terapia curativa, sino que colabora con ella. Entre los enfermos, es habitual el temor a que el avance de la enfermedad les lleve a situaciones de sufrimiento insostenible que supere todas las posibilidades médicas, pero es nuestro deber ayudarles a ser conscientes de que la medicina ofrece un abanico de terapias capaces de aliviar su dolor y evitar su sufrimiento. Este conocimiento es esencial para aumentar su confianza en el tratamiento y mejorar la relación médico-paciente. Frente a este desafío, SECPAL (Sociedad Española de Cuidados Paliativos, SED (Sociedad Española del Dolor, SEOM (Sociedad Española de Oncología Médica y SEOR (Sociedad Española de Oncología Radioterápica unen sus esfuerzos y crean ALIADO (Alianza Contra el Dolor Oncológico, un grupo de trabajo interdisciplinario que nace con el objetivo de concienciar e implicar a todo el colectivo médico en la necesidad de mejorar la calidad de vida del paciente con dolor oncológico.

    Feng, Ye [Iowa State Univ., Ames, IA (United States)

    2001-01-01

    Fe2VAl has recently been discovered to have a negative temperature coefficient of resistivity, moderately enhanced specific heat coefficient, and a large DOS at the Fermi level by photoemission. This triggered a round of heated research to understand the ground state of this material, both theoretically and experimentally. here they report a comprehensive characterization of Fe2VAl. X-ray diffraction exhibited appreciable antisite disorder in all of our samples. FTIR spectroscopy measurements showed that the carrier density and scattering time had little sample-to-sample variation or temperature dependence for near-stoichiometric samples. FTIR and DC resistivity suggest that the transport properties of Fe2VAl are influenced by both localized and delocalized carriers, with the former primarily responsible for the negative temperature coefficient of resistivity. Magnetization measurements reveal that near-stoichiometric samples have superparamagnetic clusters with at least two sizes of moments. X-ray photoemission from Fe core level showed localized magnetic moments on site-exchanged Fe. They conclude that in Fe2VAl, antisite disorder causes significant modification to the semi-metallic band structure proposed by LDA calculations. With antisite disorder considered, they are now able to explain most of the physical properties of Fe2VAl.

  16. Fe atom exchange between aqueous Fe2+ and magnetite.

    The reaction between magnetite and aqueous Fe(2+) has been extensively studied due to its role in contaminant reduction, trace-metal sequestration, and microbial respiration. Previous work has demonstrated that the reaction of Fe(2+) with magnetite (Fe(3)O(4)) results in the structural incorporation of Fe(2+) and an increase in the bulk Fe(2+) content of magnetite. It is unclear, however, whether significant Fe atom exchange occurs between magnetite and aqueous Fe(2+), as has been observed for other Fe oxides. Here, we measured the extent of Fe atom exchange between aqueous Fe(2+) and magnetite by reacting isotopically "normal" magnetite with (57)Fe-enriched aqueous Fe(2+). The extent of Fe atom exchange between magnetite and aqueous Fe(2+) was significant (54-71%), and went well beyond the amount of Fe atoms found at the near surface. Mössbauer spectroscopy of magnetite reacted with (56)Fe(2+) indicate that no preferential exchange of octahedral or tetrahedral sites occurred. Exchange experiments conducted with Co-ferrite (Co(2+)Fe(2)(3+)O(4)) showed little impact of Co substitution on the rate or extent of atom exchange. Bulk electron conduction, as previously invoked to explain Fe atom exchange in goethite, is a possible mechanism, but if it is occurring, conduction does not appear to be the rate-limiting step. The lack of significant impact of Co substitution on the kinetics of Fe atom exchange, and the relatively high diffusion coefficients reported for magnetite suggest that for magnetite, unlike goethite, Fe atom diffusion is a plausible mechanism to explain the rapid rates of Fe atom exchange in magnetite.

    The reversible thermal spin transition which occurs in [Fe(phen)2(NCS)2] around T1/2 177 K has been investigated by muon spin relaxation (μSR) (10-280 K). The depolarisation curves are well described by two Lorentzian lines represent fast and slow components in the decay curves, with the initial asymmetry parameter of the fast component found to track the spin transition in [Fe(phen)2(NCS)2]. Comparison of zero-field and transverse field (20 Oe) μSR measurements shows that diamagnetic muonic species occur over the entire temperature range.

  11. Experimental constraints on the thermodynamics and sound velocities of hcp-Fe to core pressures

    Murphy, Caitlin A.; Jackson, Jennifer M.; Sturhahn, Wolfgang

    2013-05-01

    We report the high-pressure thermoelastic and vibrational thermodynamic parameters for hexagonal close-packed iron (ɛ-Fe), based on nuclear resonant inelastic X-ray scattering and in situ X-ray diffraction experiments at 300 K. Long data collection times, high-energy resolution, and quasi-hydrostatic sample conditions produced a high-statistical quality data set that comprises the volume-dependent phonon density of states (DOS) of ɛ-Fe at eleven compression points. From the integrated phonon DOS, we determine the Lamb-Mössbauer factor (fLM), average force constant (Φ), and vibrational entropy (Svib) of ɛ-Fe to pressures relevant to Earth's outer core. We find fLM = 0.923 ± 0.001 at 171 GPa, suggesting restricted thermal atomic motion at large compressions. We use Φ to approximate ɛ-Fe's pressure- and temperature-dependent reduced isotopic partition function ratios (β-factors), which provide information about the partitioning behavior of iron isotopes in equilibrium processes involving solid ɛ-Fe. In addition, we use the volume dependence of Svib to determine the product of ɛ-Fe's vibrational thermal expansion coefficient and isothermal bulk modulus, which we find to be pressure-independent and equal to 5.70 ± 0.05 MPa/K at 300 K. Finally, from the low-energy region of each phonon DOS, we determine the Debye sound velocity (vD), from which we derive the compressional (vP) and shear (vS) sound velocities of ɛ-Fe. We find vD = 5.60 ± 0.06, vP = 10.11 ± 0.12, and vS = 4.99 ± 0.06 km/s at 171 GPa, thus providing a new tight constraint on the density dependence of ɛ-Fe's sound velocities to outer core pressures.

    Ultrathin epitaxial Fe films on Cu(1 0 0) with perpendicular magnetization have been used as templates for the preparation of FCC Fe/Cu/Fe trilayers. The magnetic anisotropy and the coupling of these films have been studied by in-situ magneto optical Kerr effect measurements and Kerr microscopy. The magnetic coupling of both Fe layers is found to be dominated by magnetostatic interaction. Adsorbate-induced spin reorientation in the top layer also causes spin reorientation in the bottom layer. The governing role of the Fe-vacuum interface for the magnetism of the whole trilayer is demonstrated.

    Full Text Available Nadie reconocía en él patria ni bandera. Cuando llegaba a los pagos de Quirihue, Rere, San Pedro, Tinguiririca, Puchacay o Maule, los inquilinos y mayordomos de las haciendas rehuían de su compañía porque leían en las cicatrices de su rostro, en los tatuajes de su cuerpo o en su hablar tosco y extraño, al hombre que vivía recorriendo caminos, huyendo de su propio nombre y de la justicia. Procreado en la violencia de un momento que nadie recordaba, su vida se inició en el mundo de los miserables, recogiendo las migajas con sabor a vino y cebolla, a charqui y queso añejo, para luego cazar furtivamente corderos, cabras y gallinas que degollaba con inusual calma para alimentar a su madre y a sus hermanastros; su juventud pasó entre muchas pendencias, grillos, cadenas, cepos y amores, aventuras y malones, para convertirse en hombre el día aciago en que por primera vez limpió de la hoja de su cuchillo la sangre de otro ser humano. Siempre llegaba y se iba en silencio, sin más nombre que sus apodos, que hablaban de otras muertes y de otras tierras, de asaltos, cuatrerismo y picardías; muchos se medían contra su sombra, otros se afanaban por ser sus conocidos y muy pocos podían llamarle amigo; bebedor incansable de aguardiente durante la vendimia y cantor alegre en las pulperías de extramuros, era un jugador empedernido de dados y naipes, de rayuelas y carreras ‘a la chilena’. Transitaba como sombra por fuertes, pagos y villas, puestos y vados, dejando tras de sí la extraña sensación de nunca haber pisado esa tierra. Sus historias en las noches lluviosas eran interminables, atrayendo sobre sí el halo de los hombres solitarios y andariegos que deslumbraban a las mujeres y niños, y que ejercían una fatal envidia entre los huasos e inquilinos. En su vida se entrecruzaban corregidores, comandantes y cabos de fuertes con la misma abundancia que lonkos, machis y caciques; hablaba con facilidad las dos lenguas, preparaba pócimas de

    2014-01-01

    El objetivo principal del artículo es estudiar la asociación entre la percepción subjetiva sobre la situación económica propia y una serie de medidas objetivas de bienestar socioeconómico –fuentes de ingresos, tenencia de vivienda, nivel educativo y transferencias familiares informales de dinero- entre adultos mayores de dos países Latinoamericanos: México y Costa Rica. Los datos se obtienen de las primeras rondas de dos encuestas sobre envejecimiento: CRELES para Costa Rica y ENASEM para México. La variable dependiente más importante se obtiene de las respuestas a las pregunta “¿Cómo califica su situación económica actual?” en Costa Rica y “¿Diría usted que su situación económica es…?” en México. Para ambas encuestas, las respuestas se codificaron en forma binaria; el código 0 representa las categorías Excelente, Muy buena y Buena, y el código 1 representa a las categorías Regular y Mala. Se encontró que el ingreso por jubilación es un importante determinante de la percepción de bienestar en ambos países. En Costa Rica, el ingreso del cónyuge y la tenencia de vivienda son importantes predictores de la percepción de bienestar, mientras que en México, los ingresos por transferencias están fuertemente asociados con dicha percepción.

    1992-07-01

    Full Text Available No final dos anos 50 e começo doe anos 60, houve uma reformulação significativa da Matemática no Brasil. Sob a bandeira do modernismo, seus defensores buscaram inovações no ensino da Matemática. Dessa forma, os reformistas se concentraram essencialmente na linguagem abusiva e no formalismo da Teoria dos Conjuntos, o que trouxe mais danos do que benefícios do ensino da Matemática de 1º e 2ºgraus. A linguagem formal da Teoria dos Conjuntos é porém sua parte menos importante. A teoria criada por Cantor tão logo revelou-se como o fundamento de toda a Matemática, possibilitando o desenvolvimento de novas disciplinas, como a Topologia, a Algebra Abstrata, a Teoria da Medida e Integração, a Teoria da Probabilidade e a Análise Funcional. O objetivo deste trabalho é um relato sucinto de como surgiu essa teoria, apresentando o "Conjunto de Cantor" como um dos mais ricos exemplos de "Conjunto perfeito" encontrados na literatura matemática.

    Full Text Available A legislação brasileira exige que os micronutrientes nos fertilizantes sejam garantidos pelo teor total presente. Isto abre um precedente para a utilização de produtos não considerados como fontes de micronutrientes na fabricação dos fertilizantes. Todavia, a eficiência agronômica desses produtos é ainda duvidosa. Objetivou-se realizar um trabalho para caracterizar a solubilidade e a disponibilidade dos micronutrientes em trinta fertilizantes comerciais, por meio do uso de cinco extratores químicos: a água e soluções de ácido cítrico a 2%, de citrato neutro de amônio na diluição 1 + 9, de DTPA 0,005 mol L-1 e de EDTA 0,005 mol L-1. Os resultados mostraram a baixa solubilidade dos micronutrientes metálicos (cobre, ferro, manganês e zinco dos fertilizantes tipo "fritas". O ácido cítrico a 2% mostrou-se promissor na caracterização da disponibilidade de cobre, manganês e zinco para as plantas. Para o ferro não houve uma definição entre os extratores estudados. O boro teve boa solubilidade, tanto nos fertilizantes solúveis, como nos insolúveis em água, e a garantia pelo teor total mostrou-se bom indicativo da disponibilidade do elemento. Para o molibdênio a solubilidade foi maior para os fertilizantes com baixo teor do elemento. A garantia dos micronutrientes catiônicos pelo teor total, conforme exige a legislação, não indicou a sua real disponibilidade nos fertilizantes comerciais, mostrando a necessidade de uma definição de extratores para esse fim.

    2016-01-01

    Although it was found that the FeH lines exist in the spectra of some stars, none of the spectral features in the ISM have been assigned to this molecule. We suggest that iron atoms interact with hydrogen and produce Fe-H nanoparticles which sometimes contain many H atoms. We calculate infrared spectra of hydrogenated iron nanoparticles using density functional theory methods and find broad, overlapping bands. Desorption of H2 could induce spinning of these small Fe-H dust grains. Some of hydrogenated iron nanoparticles posses magnetic and electric moments and should interact with electromagnetic fields in the ISM. Fe_nH_m nanoparticles could contribute to the polarization of the ISM and the anomalous microwave emission. We discuss the conditions required to form FeH and Fe_nH_m in the ISM.

Taking the Universal Human Rigths Declaration, of 1948, as the basis for analysis, the author brings up three different approaches to promote these rights: the European, the American and the African. The evolution of each of them is described using its procedure as a basic reference. Besides, an analogical analysis, brings to the fore singularities, without ignoring reciprocal influences dictated by particular contexts, though. The author stresses the importance of the International Penal Court, as a means to establish ecumenical justice. At the same time, he reminds the reader of the risks implicit in the possible non-ratification of the IPC by United States.

    Full Text Available Procurou-se relacionar as informações disponíveis sobre os organoclorados e os efeitos crônicos provocados pela exposição. Os compostos organoclorados são os praguicidas mais persistentes já fabricados. Embora sejam geralmente eficientes no controle das pragas, são importantes poluentes ambientais e potenciais causas de problemas de saúde para o homem, tendo sido proibidos ou controlados na maioria dos países. Com poucas exceções, os efeitos tardios desses compostos sobre a saúde humana são difíceis de detectar, em função de dificuldades metodológicas e da extrapolação dos resultados. A genotoxicidade está entre os mais sérios dos possíveis danos causados por esses compostos e merece atenção especial, devido à natureza irreversível do processo. Outro ponto a ser considerado é o aumento na incidência de alterações no desenvolvimento do trato reprodutivo e na fertilidade masculina observada nas últimas décadas provavelmente decorrente do aumento da exposição intra-uterina a compostos estrogênicos e anti-androgênicos, como os organoclorados.

    magnet Fe2 complexes should display two-step spin transitions triggered by external stimuli, i.e. temperature or light, which confirm the previous phenomenological model and agree well with previous experimental measurements. Based on the calculated transport results, we observe a nearly perfect spin-filtering effect and negative differential resistance (NDR) behavior integrated in the SCO magnet Fe2 junction with the [HS-HS] configuration. The current through the [HS-HS] SCO magnet Fe2 complex under a small bias voltage is mainly contributed by the spin-down electrons, which is significantly larger than those of the [LS-LS] and [LS-HS] cases. The bias-dependent transmissions are responsible for the observed NDR effect. These theoretical findings suggest that SCO Fe2 complexes hold potential applications in molecular spintronic devices. Electronic supplementary information (ESI) available: The spin density of SCO magnet Fe2 complexes, the partial DOS of HS Fe cations, zero-bias transmission curves of SCO magnet Fe2 junctions with different anchoring configurations, and bias-dependent transmission curves of SCO magnet Fe2 complexes with the [LS-LS] and [LS-HS] configurations.

    Much interest exists in finding mineralogical, organic, morphological, or isotopic biosignatures for Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria (FeOB) that are retained in Fe-rich sediments, which could indicate the activity of these organisms in Fe-rich seawater, more common in the Precambrian Era. To date, the effort to establish a clear Fe isotopic signature in Fe minerals produced by Fe(II)-oxidizing metabolisms has been thwarted by the large kinetic fractionation incurred as freshly oxidized aqueous Fe(III) rapidly precipitates as Fe(III) (oxyhydr)oxide minerals at near neutral pH. The Fe(III) (oxyhydr)oxide minerals resulting from abiotic Fe(II) oxidation are isotopically heavy compared to the Fe(II) precursor and are not clearly distinguishable from minerals formed by FeOB isotopically. However, in marine hydrothermal systems and Fe(II)-rich springs the minerals formed are often isotopically lighter than expected considering the fraction of Fe(II) that has been oxidized and experimentally-determined fractionation factors. We measured the Fe isotopic composition of aqueous Fe (Feaq) and the final Fe mineral (Feppt) produced in batch experiment using the marine Fe(II)-oxidizing phototroph Rhodovulum iodosum. The δ56Feaq data are best described by a kinetic fractionation model, while the evolution of δ56Feppt appears to be controlled by a separate fractionation process. We propose that soluble Fe(III), and Fe(II) and Fe(III) extracted from the Feppt may act as intermediates between Fe(II) oxidation and Fe(III) precipitation. Based on 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy, extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy, and X-ray total scattering, we suggests these Fe phases, collectively Fe(II/III)interm, may consist of organic-ligand bound, sorbed, and/or colloidal Fe(II) and Fe(III) mineral phases that are isotopically lighter than the final Fe(III) mineral product. Similar intermediate phases, formed in response to organic carbon produced by FeOB and inorganic

    FeSe, which has the simplest crystal structure among the Fe based superconductors, and related chalcogenide superconductors are ideal candidates for investigating the detailed mechanism of the iron-based superconductors. Here, we summarize recent studies on the Fe-chalcogenides, with the goal to address some unresolved questions such as what is the influence of chemical stoichiometry on the phase diagram, what is the exact parent phase of FeSe system, and why can T{sub c}s be so dramatically enhanced in FeSe based superconductors? Recent developments in novel synthesis to prepare chalcogenide crystals, nano-materials and thin films allow the community to begin to address these issues. Then we review physical properties of the Fe chalcogenides, specifically focusing on optical properties, scanning tunneling spectroscopy and angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy (ARPES) results. These measurements along with recent theories provide a framework for better understanding the origin of superconductivity in FeSe and Fe-chalcogenides.

  3. Roles of Fe-Nx and Fe-Fe3C@C Species in Fe-N/C Electrocatalysts for Oxygen Reduction Reaction.

    Iron and nitrogen codoped carbons (Fe-N/C) have emerged as promising nonprecious metal catalysts for the oxygen reduction reaction (ORR). While Fe-Nx sites have been widely considered as active species for Fe-N/C catalysts, very recently, iron and/or iron carbide encased with carbon shells (Fe-Fe3C@C) has been suggested as a new active site for the ORR. However, most of synthetic routes to Fe-N/C catalysts involve high-temperature pyrolysis, which unavoidably yield both Fe-Nx and Fe-Fe3C@C species, hampering the identification of exclusive role of each species. Herein, in order to establish the respective roles of Fe-Nx and Fe-Fe3C@C sites we rationally designed model catalysts via the phase conversion reactions of Fe3O4 nanoparticles supported on carbon nanotubes. The resulting catalysts selectively contained Fe-Nx, Fe-Fe3C@C, and N-doped carbon (C-Nx) sites. It was revealed that Fe-Nx sites dominantly catalyze ORR via 4-electron (4 e(-)) pathway, exerting a major role for high ORR activity, whereas Fe-Fe3C@C sites mainly promote 2 e(-) reduction of oxygen followed by 2 e(-) peroxide reduction, playing an auxiliary role.

    Full Text Available Se ha dicho por grandes penalistas que las tesis en nuestra disciplina son una eterna vuelta al pasado. Empero, debe constatarse, que ello se ha dicho en un sentido de lo clásico: una vuelta a lo que resulta digno de admirar en cualquier época, toda vez que las experiencias históricas negativas nos previenen de repetir el pasado, razón fundamental por la cual debemos conocerlo. En este escrito pretendemos mostrar cómo algunas tendencias actuales nos indican que épocas nefastas ya superadas pueden repetirse, lo cual particularmente sucede tanto con la noción de dolo como con la de mala fe, concepto que de imponerse destruiría, a la manera como se derrumba un castillo de naipes, el sólido edificio dogmático construido por el Derecho penal liberal.

    Background: Bronchial asthma constitutes a high prevalence disease which gets the 10 % of our milieu. That’s why it is very important to assess its clinical management. The clinical good practice guide constitutes a group of orientations which outline the medical assistance based on what is considered as the best options for treatment and diagnosis. Objective: to determine the adherence of the medical personnel specialized on the clinical good practical guide in the diagnosis and treatment of intercrisis bronchial asthma in ambulatory patients. Methods: A descriptive study was performed at the University Hospital ¨Dr. Gustavo Aldereguía Lima¨ in Cienfuegos city where 300 clinical records of allergic patients attending consultation during November 2001 to December 2005 were assessed. The questionnaire was applied to verify the level of general and partial fulfilment of the guide. Results: The main errors detected in the partial adherence were: Not to evaluate the asthmatic patient according to the criteria of high risk (90 % of partial adherence and lack of assessment of the patients of asthmatic high risk in the multidisciplinary consultation in which only the 70 % is adherenced to the guide. Conclusions: The general adherence to the guide was of 100% with highly significant results and a satisfactory evaluation.

    Full Text Available Os compostos cerâmicos BiFeO3 puro e modificado (Bi0,95R0,05FeO3, com terras raras R = Gd ou Eu, foram sintetizados por moagem em altas energias. As amostras foram analisadas por difração de raios X, microscopia eletrônica de varredura e espectroscopia por energia dispersiva de raios X. A difração de raios X indicou que as amostras modificadas com Eu são monofásicas, enquanto que as amostras puras e modificadas com Gd apresentaram majoritariamente a fase BiFeO3, com uma pequena quantidade de outras fases. A espectroscopia por energia dispersiva de raios X revelou a presença dos átomos modificantes na amostra e o mapeamento destes átomos indicou uma distribuição homogênea deles em toda a amostra. A microscopia eletrônica de varredura mostrou uma significante diminuição no tamanho das partículas, estando estas com dimensões sub-micrométricas e com diâmetro médio em torno de 500 nm. Estudos de densificação dos corpos cerâmicos indicaram compostos altamente densos, com densidades relativas acima de 0,9 sendo que o composto modificado com Eu alcançou a densidade relativa ρ/ρ0 = 0,98.The, pure and rare earth modified (Bi0.95R0.05FeO3 / R = Gd or Eu BiFeO3 compounds were synthesized by high-energy ball milling.

    Full Text Available A partir do anúncio da reedição de seu livro O Mundo dos Bens, publicado originalmente em 1979, a autora faz uma reflexão do contexto intelectual em que sua obra foi fundamentada. Ela discute as bases da importância do estudo do consumo para a economia e para a antropologia, salientando que isso pode contribuir para alcançar o projeto de "totalidade" dos fenômenos sociais, na perspectiva de Marcel Mauss - autor que teve grande influência para O Mundo dos Bens. O artigo ainda mostra trabalhos e debates clássicos sobre o tema das trocas que contribuíram para as reflexões desenvolvidas no livro. É retomado o argumento de que a pobreza deve ser entendida como um processo de exclusão de informação e, nesse sentido, a autora expõe porque o estudo sobre o consumo é de grande valia para a antropologia.Taking into account the announcement of the re-edition of her book The World of Goods, originally published in 1979, the author develops a reflection on the intellectual context in which her work was created. She discusses the bases of the importance of Consumption Studies for Economics and Anthropology, suggesting that they help to attain the project of "totality" in the study of social phenomena, following the notion of Marcel Mauss - an author who exerted a great influence in the The World of Goods. The article also analyses classical works and discussions about exchanges that contributed to the reflections developed in the book. She resumes her central point, that is, that poverty must be understood as a process concerning the exclusion of information. In this sense, she presents the reasons the study on consumption is of great value for Anthropology.

    Full Text Available Este artigo questiona a possibilidade de a estipulação dos direitos fundamentais, e suas obrigações e proibições correspondentes, ser suficiente para garantir adequadamente as necessidades e os interesses vitais, em especial aqueles de interesse coletivo. São bens fundamentais aqueles cujo acesso é garantido a todos e a cada um, visto que são objetos dos direitos fundamentais subtraídos à lógica do mercado. A garantia de novos bens como bens fundamentais exige uma decisão política civilizatória de submeter ao direito as relações de mercado. Assim, às cartas e convenções internacionais e constitucionais de direitos fundamentais deveriam ser acrescentadas Cartas Constitucionais e Cartas Internacionais de bens fundamentais. Daí a necessidade de uma nova dimensão do constitucionalismo garantista: a longo prazo, além de global, para além da lógica individualista dos direitos e da miopia, e do estreito localismo da política das democracias nacionais.AbstractThis article addresses the question of whether the stipulation of fundamental rights and obligations and prohibitions related to them is sufficient to properly ensure the needs and vital interests, especially those from collective interest. Fundamental goods are those whose access is guaranteed to each and every one since they are the object of fundamental rights, excluded from the logic of the market. The warranty for new goods and basic goods in the bottom of civilization requires a political decision to submit the right market relations. Thus, to the international charters and conventions and fundamental constitutional rights should be added Charters and international charter of basic goods. Hence the need for a new dimension of the constitutionally guaranteed: a constitutionally guaranteed in the long term, and global, apart from the individualistic logic of rights and shortsightedness and narrow localism policy of national democracies.

    采用基于密度泛函理论的局域自旋密度近似加U法(LSDA+U:Hubbard参数)计算了多铁材料BiFeO3铁电相以及稀土元素Gd掺杂BiFeO3材料的能带结构、态密度(DOS)、原子轨道占据数和净电荷分布等,对稀土元素Gd掺杂BiFeO3可能引起的电子结构、介电常数和铁磁性的改变进行了第一性原理研究.计算结果表明:Gd掺杂对材料钙铁矿结构影响不大,BiFeO3铁电性主要来源于Fe原子3d轨道和O原子2p轨道杂化;掺杂Gd后材料中的Fe原子和O原子的共价性减弱,Bi原子和O原子的离子性增强,禁带宽度变窄,绝缘性减弱,铁磁性明显增强;计算得到的光学性质表明材料的静态介电常数有所增加.%The band structure, density of states (DOS) , Mulliken charge population etc. Of ferroelectric (FE) BiFeO3 and rare-earth-element Gd doped BiFeO3 have been studied by first-principles calculations within the local spin density approximation plus Hubbard U (LSDA+U) approach. Our result turns out that the perovskite structure of BiFeO3 is not significantly affected by Gd doped. The ferroelectric stability of BiFeO3 is found to be attributed to the hybridization between 3d orbit of Fe and 2p orbit of O atom. And the strength of covalent bonds between Fe atom and O atom becomes weaker while the strength of ionic bonds between Bi and O becomes stronger. Meanwhile the insulativity becomes weaker since the band gap of Gd doped BiFeO3 is narrower than that of ferroelectric BiFeO3. However, the fer-romagnetism improved significantly. Furthermore, the absorption coefficient and dielectric function were calculated and the corresponding numerical results show that the static dielectric constant of Gd doped BiFeO3 is higher than that of pure BiFeO3.

    The enrichment of Fe, relative to alpha-elements such as O and Mg, represents a potential means to determine the age of quasars and probe the galaxy formation epoch. To explore how \\ion{Fe}{2} emission in quasars is linked to physical conditions and abundance, we have constructed a 830-level \\ion{Fe}{2} model atom and investigated through photoionization calculations how \\ion{Fe}{2} emission strengths depend on non-abundance factors. We have split \\ion{Fe}{2} emission into three major wavelength bands, \\ion{Fe}{2} (UV), \\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt1), and \\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt2), and explore how the \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Mg}{2}, \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt1) and \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt2) emission ratios depend upon hydrogen density and ionizing flux in broad-line regions (BLR's) of quasars. Our calculations show that: 1) similar \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Mg}{2} ratios can exist over a wide range of physical conditions; 2) the \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt1) and \\ion{Fe}{2}(UV)/\\ion{Fe}{2}(Opt2) ratios serve to constrain...

Sin embargo, esta matriz bíblica no se entiende como una especie de "moral revelada", sino más bien como un ethos bíblico que da cuenta de una "realidad revelada" a la luz de la Buena Noticia y sus consecuencias en el estilo de vida de la comunidad de los discípulos. De esta manera, el indicativo de la fe se torna un imperativo ético.After the Second Vatican Council, the reflection of Moral Theology definitely abandons its legalistic spirit in favor of a discourse rooted in the biblical perspective of a human response to the divine call. However, this biblical matrix is not understood as a type of "revealed morality" but rather as a biblical ethos that accounts for a "revealed reality" in light of the Good News and its consequences on the lifestyle of the disciples' community. Thus, the indicative of faith becomes an ethical imperative.

Crime e loucura surgem como figuras do mal e da desrazão, prisão e manicômio circunscrevem espaços da exclusão total, instituições estratégicas para se compreender os fundamentos da ordem social. Recusando-se a dar voz ao silêncio dos sujeitos, Foucault coloca, de modo radical, a questão da representação, convidando-nos a uma nova reflexão sobre o papel específico do intelectual e do político em geral.

    Full Text Available Resumo. Este artigo busca refletir sobre a forte associação entre morte e cristandade no Ocidente, buscando identificar os lugares dos mortos nos diferentes sistemas de cristandade. Propõe-se aqui a viabilidade de se pensar numa certa vinculação entre determinadas atitudes e representações diante da morte e do morrer e o sistema de cristandade vigente em determinados contextos históricos, entre fins da Antiguidade tardia e o século XX, mais especificamente em países nos quais a Igreja romana exerceu hegemonia sobre a sociedade. Procura argumentar que, enquanto predominou a modalidade “constantiniana”, os mortos faziam parte do cotidiano e a morte e foram instrumentos do projeto cristianizador. Quando este modelo de Cristandade recuou, diante da emergência da chamada “Cristandade pós-constantiniana” – na qual a Igreja não mais era braço do aparelho estatal –, os mortos tinham sido afastados da cidade dos vivos e a morte, ou melhor, o medo da morte não mais representava instrumento de pressão sobre a consciência do cidadão

    Maturation of [FeFe]-hydrogenases, consisting in the synthesis and assembly of a di-iron center with a dithiolate bridging ligand as well as CO and CN ligands, depends on the concerted action of three metalloproteins, HydE, HydF and HydG. HydE and HydG are ''Radical-SAM'' enzymes involved in the synthesis of the ligands. HydF is proposed to function as a scaffold protein in which the di-iron center is assembled before being transferred to the hydrogenase. Here we review the current knowledge regarding the structure of the three maturases and the mechanisms of synthesis and assembly of the di-iron center of [FeFe]-hydrogenases. (author)

    Full Text Available Research on ancient mercenaries is fraught with problems, being the match between the scarce and partial data provided by the literary sources and the archaeological record a tricky and difficult matter. The recent publication of two books dealing with Iberian and Celtic mercenaries, by Raimon Graells and Luc Baray respectively, offers us an opportunity to dwell on a pervading discussion when studying cultural and military dynamics, and long distance relationships in Ancient Western Europe.La actividad mercenaria en la Antigüedad es uno de los campos de estudio más complejos de la investigación histórica, en buena medida debido a la difícil combinación que existe entre los siempre parciales datos de las fuentes literarias y la arqueología.

    Although it was found that the FeH lines exist in the spectra of some stars, none of the spectral features in the interstellar medium (ISM) have been assigned to this molecule. We suggest that iron atoms interact with hydrogen and produce Fe-H nanoparticles which sometimes contain many H atoms. We calculate infrared spectra of hydrogenated iron nanoparticles using density functional theory methods and find broad, overlapping bands. Desorption of H2 could induce spinning of these small Fe-H dust grains. Some of hydrogenated iron nanoparticles possess magnetic and electric moments and should interact with electromagnetic fields in the ISM. FenHm nanoparticles could contribute to the polarization of the ISM and the anomalous microwave emission. We discuss the conditions required to form FeH and FenHm in the ISM.

    Full Text Available Hydroxyl-terminated polybutadiene (HTPB propellant were prepared with different content of Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite, and the mechanical, thermal and energetic performances were studied. Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite exhibited good compatibility with HTPB and dioctyl sebacate (DOS through differential scanning calorimetry (DSC tests. Mechanical experiments show that the mechanical properties of HTPB propellant could be improved by the addition of a small quantity of Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite, compared with the absence of Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite. For example, with the addition of 3% Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite, the tensile strength and elongation of propellant had the increase of 15.3% and 32.1%, respectively. Thermal analysis indicated that the decomposition of ammonium perchlorate (AP in HTPB propellant could be catalyzed by Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite, the high-temperature exothermic peak of AP was shifted to lower temperature by 70.8 °C when the content of Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite was 5%, and the heat released was enhanced by 70%. At the same time, the heat of explosion of HTPB propellant could also be enhanced by the addition of Al/B/Fe2O3 nano thermite. Copyright © 2016 BCREC GROUP.

    Phosphorus (P)-efficient soybean (Glycine max) plants absorb and utilize P with high efficiency. To investigate the effects of iron (Fe)-deficient conditions on the absorption and utilization of Fe in P-efficient soybean plants, two soybean cultivars with different P efficiency, the 03-3 (P-efficient variety) and Bd-2 (P-inefficient variety), were used in this study. The two soybean cultivars were grown in nutrient solution containing Fe concentrations of 0 (Fe0), 20 (Fe20), 40 (Fe40), or 80 (Fe80) μM for 7 days. The Fe reductase activity of roots was higher in 03-3 plants grown under the Fe0, Fe20, and Fe40 treatments than in Bd-2 plants and the total Fe uptake was greater in 03-3 plants under the Fe40 treatment. GmFRD3a was much more highly expressed in the stem of 03-3 than in that of Bd-2, and significantly more iron was transported to 03-3 plant shoots during Fe0 treatment. Chlorosis in young leaves caused by Fe deficiency under the Fe0 and Fe20 treatments was alleviated by increased Fe concentration in shoots. Increased levels of active Fe in young 03-3 leaves under Fe-deprivation conditions (Fe0) and maintenance of stable Fe concentrations in 03-3 shoots subjected to Fe20, Fe40, and Fe80 treatments suggested that the P-efficient 03-3 cultivar is also Fe-efficient. It is suggested that 03-3 soybean cultivar should be a good resource for application to farm field.

  9. Comparison of Tunneling in Fe-based Superconductors with Multi-band MgB2

    Science.gov (United States)

    Zasadzinski, John; Iavarone, Maria

    MgB2 is an s-wave, phonon coupled, multiband superconductor that exhibits novel tunneling spectra including a subtle dip feature due to quasiparticle transfer between bands. Since this feature mimics the above-gap spectral dip feature observed in Fe-based superconductors, typically attributed to a strong coupling boson, it is worthwhile to consider whether quasiparticle transfer is relevant. We first show that the dip in MgB2 appears in the π-band, DOS (Δ = 2.4 meV) and is due to quasiparticle transfer to the σ-band with Δ = 7.2 meV. Reviewing the spectral dip in Fe-based superconductors, including new data on FeSe crystals, there are inconsistencies with quasiparticle transfer as the origin. The conclusion is that the spectral dip is more likely due to a boson, the resonance spin excitation, as found in cuprate superconductors.

    Compartmentalization is a major prerequisite for the origin of life on earth according to Wächtershäuser "Iron-Sulfur-World". The hypothesis is mainly based on an autocatalytic inorganic energy reproducing redox system consisting of iron and sulfur as requirement for the subsequent synthesis of complex organic structures. Here, we modified [FeFe]-hydrogenase models by means of covalent coupling to either oleic acid or the amphiphilic block copolymer polybutadiene-polyethyleneoxide (PB-PEO) and incorporated those into the membranes of vesicles composed of phospholipids (liposomes) or the unmodified amphiphilic polymer (polymersomes). We employed a [2Fe-2S] cluster as a hydrogenase model, since these structures are known to be suitable catalysts for the generation of H2 in the presence of weak acids. Successful incorporation was confirmed by spectrophotometric iron quantification and the vesicles formed were characterized by size determination (photon correlation spectroscopy (PCS)), and zeta potential as well as by cryo-transmission electron microscopy (Cryo-TEM). The modified models could be incorporated into liposomes or polymersomes up to molar proportions of 3.15% and 28%, respectively. Due to the immobilization in vesicular bilayers the [FeFe]-hydrogenase models can even exhibit catalytic action under the particular conditions of the intravesicular microenvironment. Our results suggest that the vesicular systems described may be applied as a nanoreactor for the reduction of encapsulated substances by generating hydrogen and thus as a minimal cell model.

    Hydrogenases catalyze the reversible formation of H2 from electrons and protons with high efficiency. Understanding the relationships between H2 production, H2 uptake, and H2-H2O exchange can provide insight into the metabolism of microbial communities in which H2 is an essential component in energy cycling. In this manuscript, we used stable H isotopes (1H and 2H) to probe the isotope effects associated with three [FeFe]-hydrogenases and three [NiFe]-hydrogenases. All six hydrogenases displayed fractionation factors for H2 formation that were significantly less than 1, producing H2 that was severely depleted in 2H relative to the substrate, water. Consistent with differences in their active site structure, the fractionation factors for each class appear to cluster, with the three [NiFe]-hydrogenases (α = 0.27-0.40) generally having smaller values than the three [FeFe]-hydrogenases (α = 0.41-0.55). We also obtained isotopic fractionation factors associated with H2 uptake and H2-H2O exchange under conditions similar to those utilized for H2 production, providing us with a more complete picture of the three reactions catalyzed by hydrogenases. The fractionation factors determined in our studies can be used as signatures for different hydrogenases to probe their activity under different growth conditions and to ascertain which hydrogenases are most responsible for H2 production and/or uptake in complex microbial communities.

DESFECHOS: Estudos pré-clínicos sugerem que a neuromodulação das monoaminas cerebrais está associada à tomada de decisões impulsivas e aos comportamentos de risco. Os estudos clínicos implicam diversos sistemas de neurotransmissores (serotoninérgico, dopaminérgico, adrenérgico e opióide na fisiopatologia do jogo patológico e de outros transtornos do controle dos impulsos. Estudos de neuroimagem preliminares têm indicado o córtex pré-frontal ventromedial e o estriato ventral como atuantes na fisiopatologia do jogo patológico e de outros transtornos do controle dos impulsos. As contribuições genéticas para o jogo patológico parecem substanciais e os estudos iniciais têm relacionado esse transtorno a polimorfismos alélicos específicos, ainda que os achados de varredura genômica ainda tenham que ser publicados. CONCLUSÃO: Mesmo que tenham sido logrados avanços significativos em nossa compreensão sobre os transtornos do controle dos impulsos, mais pesquisas são necessárias para ampliar o conhecimento existente e traduzir esses achados em avanços clínicos.OBJECTIVE: To review the neurobiological substrates of impulse control disorders. Pathological gambling is a main focus of the review in that most biological studies of the formal impulse control disorders have examined this disorder.

    Full Text Available Resumo Neste artigo, procuro discutir a práxis dos movimentos estudantis universitários dos anos 1960em relação às "comunidades" no entorno das unidades de ensino. Constata-se, primeiro, uma relativa carência de ações efetivas, principalmente porque os movimentos estudantis se preocupavam, sobretudo, com a intervenção na política nacional e nos rumos gerais da sociedade de que faziam parte. Ainda assim, na sua riqueza e complexidade, os movimentos estudantis dos anos 1960 enfrentaram a questão da relação com a "comunidade", o que se observa em projetos e propostas criativas de ação prática, revelando uma potencialidade que poderia ter sido mais bem aproveitada. Palavras-chave: movimentos estudantis; universidade; comunidade.   Abstract In this article I intend to discuss the praxis from student movements of sixties, in its relations with the "communities" in the universities ‘neighborhoods. I evidence, first, a relative failure of effective actions, principally because the student movements preoccupy, especially, with the intervention in national politic and in the general ways of their societies. Indeed, in their wealth and complexity, the student movements from the sixties confront the question of the relation with the community, what it looks in creative projects and propositions of practical action, what reveals a potentiality what can be better used. Keywords: student movements; university; community.

    Using ab initio calculations on Zn0.975–Fe0.025CuO ( = 0, 0.01, 0.02, 0.05), we study the variations of magnetic moments vs Cu concentration. The electronic structure is calculated by using the Korringa–Kohn–Rostoker (KKR) method combined with coherent potential approximation (CPA). We show that the total magnetic moment and magnetic moment of Fe increase on increasing Cu content. From the density of state (DOS) analysis, we show that Cu-induced impurity bands can assure, by two mechanisms, the enhancement of Fe magnetic moment in Zn0.975–Fe0.025CuO.

    The catalytic activity of a heme-based oxygen sensor phosphodiesterase from Escherichia coli (EcDOS) towards cyclic diGMP is regulated by the redox state of the heme iron complex in the enzyme's sensing domain and the association of external ligands with the iron center. Specifically, the Fe(II) complex is more active towards cyclic diGMP than the Fe(III) complex, and its activity is further enhanced by O2 or CO binding. In order to determine how the redox state and coordination of the heme iron atom regulate the catalytic activity of EcDOS, we investigated the flexibility of its isolated N-terminal heme-binding domain (EcDOS-heme) by monitoring its spectral properties at various hydrostatic pressures. The most active form of the heme-containing domain, i.e. the Fe(II)-CO complex, was found to be the least flexible. Conversely, the oxidized Fe(III) forms of EcDOS-heme and its mutants had relatively high flexibilities, which appeared to be linked to the low catalytic activity of the corresponding intact enzymes. These findings corroborate the suggestion, made on the basis of crystallographic data, that there is an inverse relationship between the flexibility of the heme-containing domain of EcDOS and its catalytic activity. The Fe(II)-CO form of the heme domain of a second heme-based oxygen sensor, diguanylate cyclase (YddV), was also found to be quite rigid. Interestingly, the incorporation of a water molecule into the heme complex of YddV caused by mutation of the Leu65 residue reduced the flexibility of this heme domain. Conversely, mutation of the Tyr43 residue increased its flexibility.

    Full Text Available Os corretivos da acidez dos solos podem ter dois equivalentes em carbonato de cálcio: um, calculado pelos teores de cálcio e magnésio utilizando a expressão: % CaO x 1,79 + % MgO x 2,48 = %ECaCO3; outro, determinado analiticamente pelo poder ou valor de neutralização. Para uma mesma amostra ambos os valores deveriam coincidir, o que raramente acontece. Diversas hipóteses foram levantadas para justificar essa diferença. Os resultados deste trabalho permitiram inferir que nem todo o cálcio e magnésio dos corretivos devem estar associados às bases quimicamente efetivas mas também a fosfato, sulfato ou outras bases de forças inexpressivas; também os constituintes neutralizantes podem estar aprisionados em cristais de outros componentes dos corretivos, como sílica por exemplo, que só são atingidos por um ataque mais enérgico da amostra. Como conclusão, a avaliação química atual dos corretivos da acidez dos solos pode não estar se compatibilizando com o comportamento agrícola desses produtos.Agricultural liming materials can have two calcium carbonate equivalents: one calculated in function of calcium and magnesium oxide percentages, by the expression: % CaO x 1,79 + % MgO x 2,48 = %ECaCO3; and the other determined analytically by the neutralization power or value. For one sample, both values should be similar, however, this rarely occurs. Several hypoteses were raised to justify the difference. Results of this research permit to infer that not all calcium and magnesium should be associated to the chemically effective bases, but they are also associated to phosphate, sulphate or other bases of inexpressive strength. It is also possible that, the neutralizing components could be captured inside cristals, like silica for example, which react only after a strong solubilization of the sample. It is concluded that the chemical evaluation of agricultural liming materials at the present time cannot explain the agronomical behaviour of

    We report on neutron quantum well states in Fe/Co/Fe trilayers, in which the reflection potential exhibits a quantum well for both spin states of the neutron. It is shown, that the resonance state in such a system exists and manifests itself as a dip in the reflectivity plateau below the critical angle of total reflection. The range of trilayer parameters was numerically analyzed to find optimal experimental conditions for the enhancement of the neutron wave field in the Co spacer. Enhancement of the wave field by a resonance is suggested as a way to substantially increase the off-specular scattering signal from lateral domains in buried layers of Co.

We study conditions that allow us to change the given presentation to obtain a palindromic presentation. We prove that if the knot group G admits a faithful discrete SL(2, C-representation then G admits a palindromic presentation.

Tres elementos ayudan a explicar esta permanencia: la tradición, que es asumida y reproducida por el "linaje de creyentes" pasados, presentes y futuros; el ritual, que reproduce la memoria histórica y la identidad local; y la apropiación de elementos culturales ajenos a la cultura local para sobrevivir en contextos globales. Estas celebraciones permiten restituir la armonía en los pueblos o barrios, que han cambiado drásticamente por la inserción de los mismos en un mercado mundial. También generan la percepción de tener el control de la comunidad frente a los grandes procesos externos que la amenazan: la mancha urbana, el comercio internacional, los medios masivos de comunicación, la cultura de masas, entre otros.

    The influences of an Fe cap layer on the structural and magnetic properties of FePt/Fe bi-layers are investigated.Compared with single FePt alloy films, a thin Fe layer can affect the crystalline orientation and improve the chemical ordering of L10 FePt films. Moreover, the coercivity increases when a thin Fe layer covers the FePt layer. Beyond a critical thickness, however, the Fe cover layer quickens the magnetization reversal of Fe49Pt51/Fe bi-layers by their exchange coupling.

    An electrochemical approach to fabricate a nanostructured Fe/Pt-Fe catalyst through electrodepo-sition followed by galvanic replacement is presented. An Fe/Pt-Fe nanostructured electrode was prepared by deposition of Fe-Zn onto a Fe electrode surface, followed by replacement of the Zn by Pt at open-circuit potential in a Pt-containing alkaline solution. Scanning electron microscopy and energy-dispersive X-ray techniques reveal that the Fe/Pt-Fe electrode is porous and contains Pt. The electrocatalytic activity of the Fe/Pt-Fe electrode for oxidation of methanol was examined by cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry. The electrooxidation current on the Fe/Pt-Fe catalyst is much higher than that on flat Pt and smooth Fe catalysts. The onset potential and peak potential on the Fe/Pt-Fe catalyst are more negative than those on flat Pt and smooth Fe electrodes for methanol electrooxidation. All results show that this nanostructured Fe/Pt-Fe electrode is very attractive for integrated fuel cell applications in alkaline media.

    Iron based catalysts generally have the advantage of the easily operated magnetically recovery from application sites. In the present work, paramagnetic iron and copper core-shell nanoparticles having the iron fractions (X(Fe) = Fe/(Cu+Fe)) of 0.33-1.0 were prepared and characterized by in situ synchrotron X-ray absorption and scattering spectroscopy. During the temperature-programmed carbonization (TPC) of Cu(2+)- and Fe(3+)-β-cyclodextrin (CD) complexes, a rapid reduction of Cu(II) occurs at about 453 K together with a growth of the metallic copper (Cu). Iron proceeds in the distinct growth path. At 453-513 K, the Fe(III) → Fe(II) → Fe consecutive reduction is observed. The unreduced Fe(III) (7-13%) is coated on the surfaces of the Fe nanoparticles (as Fe2O3/Fe). Growth of the Fe nanoparticle is inhibited by the surface Fe2O3, while the steady growth in Cu is observed. The Cu has a size range of 14-18 nm in diameter, compared to the small Fe2O3/Fe ones (3-6 nm). Under the UV-visible light irradiation for four hours, methylene blue can be photocatalytically degraded (>90%) by the (Cu-Fe2O3/Fe)@C. The (Cu-Fe2O3/Fe)@C photocatalysts can effectively oxidize dye molecules, providing a promising alternative for dye degradation using solar energy. Recovery of the (Cu-Fe2O3/Fe)@C photocatalysts can be attained by applying external magnetic field to trap the ferromagnetic Cu-Fe2O3/Fe nanoparticles, which suggests an economically attractive process, especially applied in photocatalytic degradation of dye-contaminated wastewater.

Tais dispositivos surgiram como uma alternativa às soluções de hardware tradicionais na tentativa de equilibrar flexibilidade e desempenho. Uma das principais formas de utilização de arquiteturas reconfiguráveis corresponde a um bloco reconfigurável anexado a um processador hospedeiro. Esse processador é responsável por executar diversas tarefas críticas, incluindo o particionamento hardware/software e indicar o momento do bloco reconfigurável executar. Apesar de existirem diversas propostas de arquiteturas reconfiguráveis na literatura, pouco se estudou sobre o impacto do processador hospedeiro na arquitetura. Nesse contexto, esse artigo apresenta um estudo sobre o impacto do processador hospedeiro no desempenho da arquitetura reconfigurável híbrida. Como estudo de caso foi realizada uma avaliação sobre o uso dos processadores SPARC V8 da Sun Microsystems e Nios II da Altera como processadores hospedeiros da arquitetura reconfigurável híbrida RoSA. O objetivo deste estudo é realizar a comparação entre o desempenho desses processadores e identificar qual deles é o mais adequado para anexar a arquitetura em questão. Os resultados mostraram que foi possível alcançar até 47% de ganho de desempenho com o uso do processador Nios II em comparação ao SPARC V8, indicando o primeiro como mais adequado para a arquitetura RoSA.

Ao passarem muitas horas em frente a um ecrã as crianças podem estar a tornar-se pequenas pessoas inativas, porque as horas que passam a jogar videojogos poderiam ser dedicadas à actividade física, tornando assim as crianças mais ativas e menos sedentárias (Bergamasco et al., 2008. O magnetismo exercido pelos videojogos pode assustar os intervenientes da educação, pois as crianças e jovens de hoje passam horas a jogar, e nesse período de tempo não se consegue saber o que é que as crianças aprendem, ou não aprendem (Pereira, 2007.

  18. Spin structure of exchange biased heterostructures. Fe/MnF{sub 2} and Fe/FeF{sub 2}

    2006-12-18

    In this work, the {sup 57}Fe probe layer technique is used in order to investigate the depth- and temperature-dependent Fe-layer spin structure of exchange biased Fe/MnF{sub 2} and Fe/FeF{sub 2} (pseudo-twinned) antiferromagnetic (AFM) systems by conversion electron Moessbauer spectroscopy (CEMS) and nuclear resonant scattering (NRS) of synchrotron radiation. Two kinds of samples with a 10 A {sup 57}Fe probe layer directly at or 35 A away from the interface, labeled as interface and center sample, respectively, were studied in this work. The results obtained by CEMS for Fe/MnF{sub 2} suggests that, at 80 K, i.e., above T{sub N}=67 K of MnF{sub 2}, the remanent state Fe-layer spin structure of the two studied samples are slightly different due to their different microstructure. In the temperature range from 300 K to 80 K, the Fe-layer spin structure does not change just by zero-field cooling the sample in remanence. For Fe/FeF{sub 2}, a continuous non-monotonic change of the remanent-state Fe spin structure was observed by cooling from 300 K to 18 K. NRS of synchrotron radiation was used to investigate the temperature- and depth-dependent Fe-layer spin structure during magnetization reversal in pseudo-twinned Fe/MnF{sub 2}. A depthdependent Fe spin structure in an applied magnetic field (applied along the bisector of the twin domains) was observed at 10 K, where the Fe spins closer to the interface are not aligned along the field direction. The depth-dependence disappears at 150 K. (orig.)

    The heat capacity of a hydrothermally-prepared polycrystalline sample of Fe3O4 was measured from 53 to 350 K, primarily to study the thermophysics of the Verwey transitions. Although the bifurcation of the transition was confirmed, the sample was found to contain traces of manganese. The observed transition temperatures of 117.0 and 123.0 K are 3.7 and 4.2 K higher respectively than those found in pure Fe3O4. Ancillary analytical results are consistent and indicate a stoichiometry of Mn0.008Fe2.992O4 for this material. Characteristics in the transition region are ascribed to dopant effects. ?? 1976.

    FeGa3 and related compounds have been subjects of recent investigation for their interesting thermoelectric, electronic, and magnetic behaviors. Here, single crystals of FeGa3- y Ge y were grown by the self-flux technique with effective y = 0, 0.09(1), 0.11(1), and 0.17(1) in order to investigate the evolution of the diamagnetic semiconducting compound FeGa3 into a ferromagnetic metal, which occurs through the electron doping and band structure modifications that result from substitution of Ge for Ga. Heat capacity and magnetization measurements reveal non-Fermi liquid behavior in the vicinity of the transition from a paramagnetic to ferromagnetic ground state, suggesting the presence of a ferromagnetic quantum critical point (FMQCP). We also present the first results of hole doping in this system by the growth of FeGa3- y Zn y single crystals, and electron- and hole doping of the related compound CoGa3 by CoGa3- y Ge y and CoGa3- y Zn y crystal growths, aiming to search for further routes to band structure and charge carrier tuning, thermoelectric optimization, and quantum criticality in this family of compounds. The ability to tune the charge carrier type warrants further investigation of the MGa3 system's thermoelectric properties above room temperature.

    2005-06-01

    Wireless network is more vulnerable to denial of service (DoS) attacks than wired one. In this paper we propose two methods to resist DoS attacks in UMTS-WLAN network, one is active and the other is passive. These two are complementary to each other. In active DoS defense method, a mobile terminal generates an authorized anonymous ID (AAI) using its true ID such as IP address, MAC address, PIN code, or asymmetric key, and substitutes its true ID with the authorized anonymous ID. The mobile terminal may be authenticated by the UMTS-WLAN, however its true ID is anonymous to intending attackers. This method can be used to isolate de-authenticating/disassociating DoS attackers, spoofing power-save DoS attacker, etc. In passive DoS defense method, we propose a trace back scheme. We use covert channels in the header of mobile IP packets to trace back the malicious nodes by embedding some address information of intermediate nodes, and recovering the embedded information by the victim. After the victim successfully traces the attacking paths from malicious nodes, it can segregate the malicious nodes and protect itself. This method can be used to resist DoS attacks of mass-produced junk message congestions.

    Full Text Available Resumo Na formação do território brasileiro, os fluxos migratórios internacionais e internos desempenharam papel central. Se as correntes de imigrantes oriundas da África e da Europa fomentaram as atividades econômicas do passado, as novas ondas migratórias, a contar de meados do século XX, conformaram a dinâmica socioespacial brasileira mais recente. Ao lado de tradicionais destinos como o Japão e Estados Unidos, novos movimentos populacionais internos à América do Sul ganharam importância, incluindo os fluxos de entrada no território brasileiro. Em face dessa dinâmica migratória, constitui objetivo principal deste trabalho o levantamento das diferentes nacionalidades dos imigrantes estrangeiros residentes no Brasil e a análise das diferenças na mobilidade espacial interna desses mesmos estrangeiros. De acordo com dados extraídos dos censos demográficos de 1991, 2000 e 2010, nota-se uma expressiva expansão do número de estrangeiros naturais dos países latino-americanos em terras brasileiras, em especial dos vizinhos do cone sul, e um significativo nível de mobilidade espacial interna dos paraguaios e dos bolivianos.

    Due to their stability toward reductive dissolution, Fe-bearing clay minerals are viewed as a renewable source of Fe redox activity in diverse environments. Recent findings of interfacial electron transfer between aqueous Fe(II) and structural Fe in clay minerals and electron conduction in octahedral sheets of nontronite, however, raise the question whether Fe interaction with clay minerals is more dynamic than previously thought. Here, we use an enriched isotope tracer approach to simultaneously trace Fe atom movement from the aqueous phase to the solid ((57)Fe) and from the solid into the aqueous phase ((56)Fe). Over 6 months, we observed a significant decrease in aqueous (57)Fe isotope fraction, with a fast initial decrease which slowed after 3 days and stabilized after about 50 days. For the aqueous (56)Fe isotope fraction, we observed a similar but opposite trend, indicating that Fe atom movement had occurred in both directions: from the aqueous phase into the solid and from the solid into aqueous phase. We calculated that 5-20% of structural Fe in clay minerals NAu-1, NAu-2, and SWa-1 exchanged with aqueous Fe(II), which significantly exceeds the Fe atom layer exposed directly to solution. Calculations based on electron-hopping rates in nontronite suggest that the bulk conduction mechanism previously demonstrated for hematite1 and suggested as an explanation for the significant Fe atom exchange observed in goethite2 may be a plausible mechanism for Fe atom exchange in Fe-bearing clay minerals. Our finding of 5-20% Fe atom exchange in clay minerals indicates that we need to rethink how Fe mobility affects the macroscopic properties of Fe-bearing phyllosilicates and its role in Fe biogeochemical cycling, as well as its use in a variety of engineered applications, such as landfill liners and nuclear repositories.

After milling for 80 h, differential scanning calorimetry scans show low-temperature recovery processes and several crystallization processes related with crystal growth and reordering of crystalline phases. The apparent activation energy values are 315 ± 40 kJ mol–1 for alloy A, and 295 ± 20 kJ mol–1 and 320 ± 25 kJ mol–1 for alloy B. Furthermore, a melt-spun Fe-based ribbon was mechanically alloyed to obtain a powdered-like alloy. The increase of the rotation speed and the ball-to-powder weight ratio reduces the necessary time to obtain the powdered form.

    Magnetic Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene has been successfully synthesized by a one-step reduction method and investigated in rapid degradation of dyes in this work. The material was characterized by N2 sorption-desorption, scanning electron microscopy (SEM), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), vibrating-sample magnetometer (VSM) measurements and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The results indicated that Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene had a layered structure with Fe crystals highly dispersed in the interlayers of graphene, which could enhance the mass transfer process between Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene and pollutants. Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene exhibited ferromagnetism and could be easily separated and re-dispersed for reuse in water. Typical dyes, such as Methyl Orange, Methylene Blue and Crystal Violet, could be decolorized by Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene rapidly. After 20min, the decolorization efficiencies of methyl orange, methylene blue and crystal violet were 94.78%, 91.60% and 89.07%, respectively. The reaction mechanism of Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene with dyes mainly included adsorption and enhanced reduction by the composite. Thus, Fe(0)/Fe3O4/graphene prepared by the one-step reduction method has excellent performance in removal of dyes in water.

In this regard, different Fe2O3-B2O3 powder mixtures with sufficient amount of CaH2 were milled in a planetary ball mill in order to produce nanocrystalline Fe, Fe95B5 and Fe85B15 alloys. The produced samples were characterized using X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The results showed that, nanocrystalline Fe, Fe95B5 and Fe85B15 alloys can be successfully synthesized by the reduction reaction of Fe2O3 and B2O3 with CaH2 during mechanical alloying. The structure of produced Fe95B5 and Fe85B15 alloys was a combination of Fe and Fe2B phases with average crystallite sizes of about 15 and 10 nm, respectively. The produced nanocrystalline alloys exhibited soft magnetic properties with the coercivity and saturation of magnetization in the range of 170-240 Oe and 9-28 emu/g, respectively. Increasing the boron content has a destructive effect on soft magnetic properties of Fe-B alloys.

    Full Text Available No sabemos muy bien si su experiencia carcelaria cambió para mal la forma de ser de Inés Palou (Agramunt, Lérida, 1923 – Gelida, Barcelona, 1975 o si, por el contrario, eligió el delito como forma de vida con anterioridad. En cualquier caso, su primera nove- la, Carne apaleada, es, o pretende ser, una autobiografía exculpatoria. Sobre su biografía real algo nos dicen los textos que acompañan a la edición de sus obras: Nació en una familia de clase media que pudo pagarle estudios de Comercio y Peritaje Mer- cantil. Su educación familiar fue la misma que solían recibir hace cuarenta o cincuenta años las hijas de buena familia. Desempeñó diversos oficios relacionados con sus estudios hasta que siendo responsable en parte de la marcha financiera de una empresa se vio envuelta en problemas fiscales. Para salir del paso recurrió a métodos que la justicia consideró delictivos, por lo que pasó una larga temporada en la cárcel de mujeres de Barcelona. Allí comenzó a escribir. Y allí comenzaría también el terrible túnel de humillaciones y rebeldía del que sólo salió con el suicidio en 1975.

    The room temperature optical constants n and k of MBE grown FeF{sub 2} films are reported. Because of poor chemical stability, FeF{sub 2} had to be coated with a protective Au layer. Reflection spectral ellipsometry in the photon energy range between 1.3 and 5.2 eV was performed on structures with a typical profile Au(0.5 nm)/FeF{sub 2}(120 nm)/Au(30 nm)/Ag(20 nm)/Fe(0.6 nm) grown on GaAs(0 0 1) substrate. The spectra of n and k in FeF{sub 2} were subsequently employed in the design of FeF{sub 2}/Fe/FeF{sub 2} sandwiches considered as magneto-optic (MO) sensors for weak microwave currents. Their MO response was evaluated using reflection MO (Kerr) spectroscopy at polar magnetization. The present results may be of interest in MO studies of magnetic nanostructures with Fe/FeF{sub 2}/Fe, including MO magnetometry and MO magnetic domain imaging.

    Osteoporosis is a common skeletal disease with serious clinical consequences because of fractures. Despite the availability of clinical tools to diagnose osteoporosis and assess fracture risk, and drugs proven to reduce fracture risk, it remains a disease that is underdiagnosed and undertreated. When treatment is started, it is commonly not taken correctly or long enough to be effective. Recent advances in understanding of the regulators and mediators of bone remodeling have led to new therapeutic targets and the development of drugs that may offer advantages over current agents in reducing the burden of osteoporotic fractures. Many genetic factors that play a role in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis and metabolic bone disease have now been identified. At the 2009 Santa Fe Bone Symposium, held in Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA, the links between advances in genetics, basic bone science, recent clinical trials, and new and emerging therapeutic agents were presented and explored. Socioeconomic challenges and opportunities in the care of osteoporosis were discussed. This is a collection of medical essays based on key presentations at the 2009 Santa Fe Bone Symposium.

    In this work a novel heterogeneous Fenton system based on Fe(0)/Fe3O4 composites is described. The composites with several Fe(0)/Fe3O4 ratios were prepared by two different methods, i.e. mechanical alloying of Fe(0) and Fe3O4 powders and controlled reduction of Fe3O4 with H2. Reaction studies and detailed Conversion Electron Mössbauer surface characterization of the composites Fe(0)/Fe3O4, Fe(0), Fe3O4, alpha-Fe2O3 and gamma-Fe2O3 suggested that Fe2+surf species are essential to produce an active Fenton system. Kinetic studies for the oxidation of the dye methylene blue, used as an organic model molecule, and for the peroxide decomposition suggest that the reactions proceed via HO* radicals generated from Fe2+surf species and H2O2 in a Fenton like mechanism. The increase in activity caused by the addition of Fe(0) is discussed in terms of a creation of Fe2+surf species during the preparation of the composite and by an electron transfer mechanism from Fe(0) to Fe3+surf during the Fenton reaction to regenerate the Fe2+surf active species.

    Under the surface peeling of Cu-Fe-P lead frame alloy larger Fe particles were observed by energy dispersive spectroscopy. By using the large strain two-dimension plane strain model and elastic-plastic finite element method, the cause for peeling damage of Cu-Fe-P lead frame alloy was investigated. The results show that when the content of Fe particles is more than 30% at local Fe-rich area the intense stress concentration in the Fe particle would make the Fe particle broken up. The high equivalent stress mutation and the mismatch of equivalent strain 10% at the two sides of interface make it easy to develop the crack and peeling damage on finish rolling. The larger Fe particles in the Cu-Fe-P alloy should be avoided.

    Full Text Available We have fabricated strain-sensitive spin valves on flexible substrates by utilizing the large magnetostrictive FeGa alloy to promote the strain sensitivity and the composite free layer of FeGa/FeCo to avoid the drastic reduction of giant magnetoresistance (GMR ratio. This kind of spin valve (SV-FeGa/FeCo displays a MR ratio about 5.9%, which is comparable to that of the conventional spin valve (SV-FeCo with a single FeCo free layer. Different from the previously reported works on magnetostrictive spin valves, the SV-FeGa/FeCo displays an asymmetric strain dependent GMR behavior. Upon increasing the lateral strain, the MR ratio for the ascending branch decreases more quickly than that for the descending branch, which is ascribed to the formation of a spiraling spin structure around the FeGa/FeCo interface under the combined influences of both magnetic field and mechanical strain. A strain sensitivity of GF = 7.2 was achieved at a magnetic bias field of -30 Oe in flexible SV-FeGa/FeCo, which is significantly larger than that of SV-FeCo.

    In line with this work the structural and magnetic properties of the exchange coupled layered systems Fe/FeSn{sub 2} and Fe/FeSi/Si and of the Fe ion implanted diluted magnetic semiconductor (DMS) SiC(Fe) were investigated. The main measuring method was the isotope selective {sup 57}Fe conversion electron Moessbauer spectroscopy (CEMS), mostly in connection with the {sup 57}Fe tracer layer technique, in a temperature range from 4.2 K to 340 K. Further measurement techniques were X-ray diffraction (XRD), electron diffraction (LEED, RHEED), SQUID magnetometry and FMR (Ferromagnetic Resonance). In the first part of this work the properties of thin AF FeSn{sub 2}(001) films and of the exchange-bias system Fe/FeSn{sub 2}(001) on InSb(001) were investigated. With the application of {sup 57}Fe-tracer layers and CEMS both the Fe-spin structure and the temperature dependence of the magnetic hyperfine field (B{sub hf}) of FeSn{sub 2} could be examined. The evaporation of Fe films on the FeSn{sub 2} films produced in the latter ones a high perpendicular spin component at the Fe/FeSn{sub 2} interface. In some distance from the interface the Fe spins rotate back into the sample plane. Furthermore {sup 57}Fe-CEMS provided a correlation between the absolute value of the exchange field vertical stroke He vertical stroke and the amount of magnetic defects within the FeSn{sub 2}. Temperature dependent CEMS-measurements yielded informations about the spin dynamics within the AF. The transition temperatures T{sub B}{sup *}, which were interpreted as superparamagnetic blocking temperatures, obtain higher values compared to the temperatures T{sub B} of the exchange-bias effect, obtained with magnetometry measurements. The second part of this work deals with the indirect exchange coupling within Fe/FeSi/Si/FeSi/Fe multilayers and FeSi diffusion barriers. The goal was to achieve Fe free Si interlayers. The CEMS results show that starting from a thickness of t{sub FeSi}=10-12 A of the

    Isolated Fe-57 atoms were studied in MgO single-crystals by emission Mossbauer spectroscopy following implantation of Mn-57 decaying to Fe-57. Four Mossbauer spectral components were found corresponding to different Fe lattice positions and/or charge states. Two components represent Fe atoms substituting Mg as Fe2+ and Fe3+, respectively; a third component is due to Fe in a strongly implantation-induced disturbed region. The fourth component, which is the focus of this paper, can be assigned to Fe at an interstitial site. Comparison of its measured isomer shift with ab initio calculations suggests that the interstitial Fe is located on, or close to, the face of the rock-salt MgO structure. To harmonize such an assignment with the measured near-zero quadrupole interaction a local motion process (cage motion) of the Fe has to be stipulated. The relation of such a local motion as a starting point for long range diffusion is discussed.

Despite the ability of bacteria to grow using both Fe(II) and Fe(III) bound in solid-phase iron minerals, it is currently unknown whether changing environmental conditions enable the sharing of electrons in mixed-valent iron oxides between bacteria with different metabolisms. We show through magnetic and spectroscopic measurements that the phototrophic Fe(II)-oxidizing bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris TIE-1 oxidizes magnetite (Fe3O4) nanoparticles using light energy. This process is reversible in co-cultures by the anaerobic Fe(III)-reducing bacterium Geobacter sulfurreducens. These results demonstrate that Fe ions bound in the highly crystalline mineral magnetite are bioavailable as electron sinks and electron sources under varying environmental conditions, effectively rendering magnetite a naturally occurring battery.

    Full Text Available 1 — Duas amostras de vírus capazes de produzir uma mielencefalite foram isoladas de dois camundongos brancos suíços, de criação, espontâneamente infetados, em um total de 7.000 animais examinados; uma terceira amostra foi obtida por trituração e filtração dos intestinos de camundongos aparentemente normais. 2 — Foram feitas separadamente dez passagens por inoculação intra¬cerebral em camundongos jovens e adultos. Verificou-se por testes de imunidade cruzada que as três amostras eram idênticas. Prossegiu-se então nas passagens com apenas uma das amostras. 3 — O poder infetante aumenta com o número de passagens: o período médio de incubação diminui e aumenta a letalidade. 4 — A infecção espontânea e experimental é descrita. A doença parece ser mais comum em animais jovens. O período de incubação varia de 5 a 30 dias. Às vêzes observa-se uma fase prodromica: fraqueza, menor atividade, dificuldade em andar; geralmente surge a paralisia flácida sem sintomas prévios, na grande maioria das vêzes, nos membros posteriores. Três formas clínicas foram observadas: super-aguda, aguda e crônica. 5 — Em camundongos normais o vírus pode ser demonstrado nas fezes e nos intestinos. Ele é comum no tubo digestivo e só ocasionalmente invade o sistema nervoso central, ou melhor, a encefalomielite e primàriamente uma doença do trato digestivo no qual a invasão do SNC é um acidente. 6 — O vírus passa através de velas de CHAMBERLAND L3 e L5, em BER KEFED V, N e W e em filtro Seitz EK, a suspensão sendo tão ativa como antes da filtração. Conserva-se bem em glicerina a 50% pelo menos 60 dias, se guardado na geladeira. Suspensão de cérebro e medula aquecida em banho-maria a 56°C por 30 minutos perde a atividade. 7 — O título variou entre 4.000 e 20.000 dmm. 8 — Obteve-se infecção por inoculação intracerebral, por instilação nasal e, com menos regularidade, por inoculação intraperitoneal; a via g

    Fe and FeCo ferromagnetic nanoparticles in the 5-10 nm size regimes featuring high magnetization were synthesized using a modified chemical reduction method. The structure and morphology of these nanoparticles were confirmed by XRD and TOM analysis. These small, monodisperse and phase pure nanoparticles exhibited magnetic saturation of 210 emu/g (Fe) and 220 emu/g (Fe+Co) for Fe and FeCo nanoparticles respectively. The magnetization was found to be dependent on the temperature at which the reducing agent was introduced. (C) 2014 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved,

    Iron chelates derived from ethylenediaminedi(o-hydroxyphenylacetic) acid (EDDHA), ethylenediaminedi(o-hydroxy-p-methylphenylacetic) acid (EDDHMA), ethylenediaminedi(2-hydroxy-5-sulfophenylacetic) acid (EDDHSA), and ethylenediaminedi(5-carboxy-2-hydroxyphenylacetic) acid (EDDCHA) are remarkably efficient in correcting iron chlorosis in plants growing in alkaline soils. This work reports the determination of impurities in commercial samples of fertilizers containing EDDHMA/Fe(3+), EDDHSA/Fe(3+), and EDDCHA/Fe(3+). The active components (EDDHMA/Fe(3+), EDDHSA/Fe(3+), and EDDCHA/Fe(3+)) were separated easily from other compounds present in the fertilizers by HPLC. Comparison of the retention times and the UV-visible spectra of the peaks obtained from commercial EDDHSA/Fe(3+) and EDDCHA/Fe(3+) samples with those of standard solutions showed that unreacted starting materials (p-hydroxybenzenesulfonic acid and p-hydroxybenzoic acid, respectively) were always present in the commercial products. 1D and 2D NMR experiments showed that commercial fertilizers based on EDDHMA/Fe(3+) contained impurities having structures tentatively assigned to iron chelates of two isomers of EDDHMA. These findings suggest that current production processes of iron chelates used in agriculture need to be improved.

    The composite NdFeB magnets with blending melt-spun flakes and Fe fine powders were prepared by the hot-pressed and hot-deformed route. Characterizations of the hot-deformed NdFeB magnets affected by the doped Fe powders were tested. The doped Fe powders decrease the hot-deformed pressure when the strain is between 15 and 50%. XRD patterns show that the doped Fe powders have little influence on the c-axis alignment of hot-deformed NdFeB magnets in the press direction. The B{sub r} and the (BH){sub max} get improved when the doped Fe powders are less than 3 wt%. The doped Fe of hot-deformed NdFeB magnets exists in the elongated state and the spherical state surrounded by the Nd-rich phase. With the Fe fraction increasing, the potential of magnet moves to the positive direction and the diameter of the Nyquist arc becomes larger, which indicate that the corrosion resistance improved effectively. The bending strength was enhanced by the elongated α-Fe phase embedded in the matrix 2:14:1 phase. - Highlights: • The doped Fe powders have little influence on the c-axis alignment of magnets. • The elongated Fe powders are more than the spherical Fe powders in the magnets. • The corrosion resistance is improved effectively with the increasing Fe fraction. • The bending strength is enhanced by the elongated α-Fe phase embedded in the matrix.

    Biological hydrogen production is based on activity of specific enzymes called hydrogenases. Hydrogenases are oxygen sensitive metalloenzymes containing Ni and/or Fe atoms at the active site, catalyzing reversible reduction of protons. Generally, [Fe-Fe] hydrogenases prefer proton reduction to molecular hydrogen, a potential energy carrier molecule that can be produced by bioprocesses in sustainable manner. Thus, monitoring tools have been developed to study the relationship between [Fe-Fe] hydrogenases and biohydrogen production in bioreactors at DNA and RNA levels. In the present study, novel molecular tools are introduced for quantitative monitoring of clostridial [Fe-Fe] hydrogenases at the protein level. Aerobic and anaerobic biopanning (for inactive and active [Fe-Fe] hydrogenase, respectively) of phage displayed single-chain variable fragment (scFv) antibody libraries aided in isolating nine potential scFvs. The enriched antibodies demonstrated high specificity towards Clostridium spp. [Fe-Fe] hydrogenases allowing detection from pure and mixed cultures. Additionally, the antibodies showed different binding characteristics towards hydrogenase catalytic states, providing a possible means for functional detection of clostridial [Fe-Fe] hydrogenases. From hydrogenase-antibody interaction studies we observed that though antibody binding reduced the enzyme catalytic activity, it facilitated to retain hydrogen evolution from oxygen exposed hydrogenases.

    The magnetic properties of ball-milled TbFe2 and TbFe2B were studied by magnetization measurements. X-ray diffraction studies on TbFe2B showed that boron occupied interstitial position in the crystal structure, just as hydrogen did. The value of the saturation magnetization of TbFe2B was found to be smaller than that of TbFe2. This is explained on the basis of a charge transfer between the boron atoms and the 3d band of Fe. The anisotropy of TbFe2B was found to be large compared to that of TbFe2. X-ray diffractograms for the ball milled samples showed that after 80 h of milling, a predominantly amorphous phase was obtained. TbFe2B was found to undergo easy amorphization compared to TbFe2. Magnetization of TbFe2 was found to decrease rapidly with initial milling hours and was found to be constant with further hours of milling. TbFe2B exhibited an anomalous behaviour with an increase in moment with milling hours and this may be due to the segregation of -Fe.

    The calculations on electronic structures of Nd2Fe14B are calculated using first-principles full-potential linearized augmented plane wave (FPLAPW) method. We study the magnetic properties of Nd2Fe14B using the LDA+U and spin-orbit coupling methods. Results are presented for total density of states (DOS) as well as the site-projected partial density of states (PDOS) and the spin magnetic moment of Fe at each of the six in-equivalent transition-metal sites. The total spin-magnetic moments and the average Fe moment are in a good agreement with the values deduced from the neutron scattering experiment. The spin-polarized calculations, excluding the Hubbard and SO interaction, resulted in the total spin magnetic moment is 46.6 μB compared to the experimental values 34.63 μB to the value of 39.6 μB we obtained using LDA+U scheme without Spin-Orbit coupling(SO). But using LDA+U +SO the total spin magnetic moment is 37.6 μB.

    Fe/CNTs composites, with different concentrations of Fe nanoparticles (NPs) on carbon nanotube (CNT) surfaces, were successfully fabricated via a facile solvothermal method. The lengths of CNTs are up to 10 {mu}m and the mean diameter of the Fe nanoparticles is about 25 nm. The structures, composition and magnetic properties of the Fe/CNTs were characterized by XRD, FTIR, FE-SEM, TEM and PPMS. We found that the concentrations of Fe nanoparticles depositing on the CNTs could be controlled by adjusting the initial mass ratio of ferrocene to CNTs. The Fe/CNTs composites display good ferromagnetic properties at room temperature, with a saturation magnetization of 125 emu/g-Fe and a coercivity of 276 Oe. The Curie temperature of the sample is about 1038 K, slightly lower than that (1043 K) of the bulk iron.

    In this study, quantitative PCR (qPCR) was used to quantify [FeFe]-hydrogenases and subsequently melting curves were analyzed from hydrogen-fermenting, mixed-culture bioreactor samples. Denaturing gradient gel electrophoresis (DGGE) analysis was also performed to the reactor samples revealing a clostridial dominance in the reactor. Primers targeting [FeFe]-hydrogenases were designed based on known clostridial [FeFe]-hydrogenase gene sequences and tested with several clostridial strains. The results show that amplification efficiencies of four different clostridia are highly similar and melting curves of the clostridial strains were within 1 C of each other. We compared the melting curves to the hydrogen percentage and observed a correlation between the results. The closer the melting curves were to those of clostridia, the better the hydrogen production. Based on these results, the primers and melting curve analysis of [FeFe]-hydrogenase amplicons can be used for analysing hydrogenase genes from bioreactor samples. (author)

    We report on stable Fe isotope fractionation during microbial and chemical reduction of structural Fe(III) in nontronite NAu-1. (56)Fe/(54)Fe fractionation factors between aqueous Fe(II) and structural Fe(III) ranged from -1.2 to +0.8‰. Microbial (Shewanella oneidensis and Geobacter sulfurreducens) and chemical (dithionite) reduction experiments revealed a two-stage process. Stage 1 was characterized by rapid reduction of a finite Fe(III) pool along the edges of the clay particles, accompanied by a limited release to solution of Fe(II), which partially adsorbed onto basal planes. Stable Fe isotope compositions revealed that electron transfer and atom exchange (ETAE) occurred between edge-bound Fe(II) and octahedral (structural) Fe(III) within the clay lattice, as well as between aqueous Fe(II) and structural Fe(III) via a transient sorbed phase. The isotopic fractionation factors decreased with increasing extent of reduction as a result of the depletion of the finite bioavailable Fe(III) pool. During stage 2, microbial reduction was inhibited while chemical reduction continued. However, further ETAE between aqueous Fe(II) and structural Fe(III) was not observed. Our results imply that the pool of bioavailable Fe(III) is restricted to structural Fe sites located near the edges of the clay particles. Blockage of ETAE distinguishes Fe(III) reduction of layered clay minerals from that of Fe oxyhydroxides, where accumulation of structural Fe(II) is much more limited.

    Iron is one of the most abundant transition metal in higher plants and variations in its isotopic compositions can be used to trace its utilization. In order to better understand the effect of plant-induced isotopic fractionation on the global Fe cycling, we have estimated by quantum chemical calculations the magnitude of the isotopic fractionation between different Fe species relevant to the transport and storage of Fe in higher plants: Fe(II)-citrate, Fe(III)-citrate, Fe(II)-nicotianamine, and Fe(III)-phytosiderophore. The ab initio calculations show firstly, that Fe(II)-nicotianamine is ˜3‰ (56Fe/54Fe) isotopically lighter than Fe(III)-phytosiderophore; secondly, even in the absence of redox changes of Fe, change in the speciation alone can create up to ˜1.5‰ isotopic fractionation. For example, Fe(III)-phytosiderophore is up to 1.5‰ heavier than Fe(III)-citrate2 and Fe(II)-nicotianamine is up to 1‰ heavier than Fe(II)-citrate. In addition, in order to better understand the Fe isotopic fractionation between different plant components, we have analyzed the iron isotopic composition of different organs (roots, seeds, germinated seeds, leaves and stems) from six species of higher plants: the dicot lentil (Lens culinaris), and the graminaceous monocots Virginia wild rye (Elymus virginicus), Johnsongrass (Sorghum halepense), Kentucky bluegrass (Poa pratensis), river oat (Uniola latifolia), and Indian goosegrass (Eleusine indica). The calculations may explain that the roots of strategy-II plants (Fe(III)-phytosiderophore) are isotopically heavier (by about 1‰ for the δ56Fe) than the upper parts of the plants (Fe transported as Fe(III)-citrate in the xylem or Fe(II)-nicotianamine in the phloem). In addition, we suggest that the isotopic variations observed between younger and older leaves could be explained by mixing of Fe received from the xylem and the phloem.

    The spectrum of singly-ionized iron (Fe II) has been recorded using high-resolution Fourier transform and grating spectroscopy over the wavelength range 900 {\\AA} to 5.5 {\\mu}m. The spectra were observed in high-current continuous and pulsed hollow cathode discharges using Fourier transform (FT) spectrometers at the Kitt Peak National Observatory, Tucson, AZ and Imperial College, London and with the 10.7 m Normal Incidence Spectrograph at the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Roughly 12 900 lines were classified using 1027 energy levels of Fe II that were optimized to measured wavenumbers. The wavenumber uncertainties of lines in the FT spectra range from 10-4 cm-1 for strong lines around 4 {\\mu}m to 0.05 cm-1 for weaker lines around 1500 {\\AA}. The wavelength uncertainty of lines in the grating spectra is 0.005 {\\AA}. The ionization energy of (130 655.4+-0.4) cm-1 was estimated from the 3d6(5D)5g and 3d6(5D)6h levels.

    Exchange coupling multilayer thin films, which combined giant magnetostriction and soft magnetic properties, were of growing interest for applications. The TbFe/FeAl multilayer thin films were prepared by dc magnetron sputtering onto glass substrates. The microstructure, magnetic, and magnetostrictive properties of TbFe/FeAl multilayer thin film was investigated at different annealing temperatures. The results indicated that the soft magnetic and magnetostrictive properties for TbFe/FeAl multilayer thin film compared with TbFe single layer film were obviously improved. In comparison with the intrinsic coercivity JHc of 59.2 kA/m for TbFe single layer film, the intrinsic coercivity JHc for TbFe/FeAl multilayer thin films rapidly dropped to 29.6 kA/m. After optimal annealing (350 ℃×60 min), magnetic properties of Hs=96 kA/m and JHc=16 kA/m were obtained, and magnetostrictive coefficient could reach to 574×10-6 under an external magnetic field of 400 kA·m-1 for the TbFe/FeAl multilayer thin film.

    We have studied the ferrous (Fe2+) and ferric (Fe3+) iron concentrations in Al-free Fe containing Mg-silicate perovskite (Mg-Pv) at pressure (P), temperature (T), and oxygen fugacity (fO2) conditions related to the lower mantle using a thermodynamic model based on ab-initio calculations. We consider the oxidation reaction and the charge disproportionation reaction, both of which can produce Fe3+ in Mg-Pv. The model shows qualitatively good agreement with available experimental data on Fe3+/{\\Sigma}Fe ({\\Sigma}Fe = total Fe in system), spin transitions, and equations of state. We predict that under lower-mantle conditions Fe3+/{\\Sigma}Fe determined by the charge disproportionation is estimated to be 0.01-0.07 in Al-free Mg-Pv, suggesting that low Al Mg-Pv in the uppermost pyrolitic mantle (where majoritic garnet contains most of the Al) and in the harzburgitic heterogeneities throughout the lower mantle contains very little Fe3+.

  19. Perpendicular Magnetic Anisotropy of Tb/Fe and Gd/Fe Multilayers Studied with Torque Magnetometer

    Chowdhury, Ataur

    Perpendicular magnetic anisotropy (PMA) of multilayers critically depend on the magnetic and structural ordering of the interface. To study the effect of interface on PMA, Tb/Fe and Gd/Fe multilayers with varying Fe (0.8-9.0 nm) and Gd (0.5-2.8 nm) or Tb (0.3-6.3 nm) layer thicknesses were fabricated by planar magnetron sputtering. The magnetometer results of spin orientation clearly reveals that samples with Gd or Tb layer thickness of more than 1.2 nm display no PMA, regardless of the Fe layer thickness. Tb/Fe and Gd/Fe multilayers with thin (<1.2 nm) Tb or Gd layers display large PMA, but no PMA is observed when the Fe layer thickness is increased to 4.0 nm and higher. The bulk magnetization and anisotropy energy constant of the samples are found to increase with increasing Fe layer thickness. Torque measurement also reveals that there are two distinctly different axes of spin alignment at different energy. Tb/Fe and Gd/Fe multilayers with similar composition reveal similar magnetic and structural characteristics, and it may imply that single-ion-anisotropy of rare-earth element, which is quite large for Tb ions and very small for Gd ions, may not be the dominating cause of PMA in Td/Fe and Gd/Fe multilayers. A detailed explanation of the results will be provided based on exchange interaction at the interface.

    2000-01-01

    The Fe3O4/Fe/Fe3O4 (MIM) tri-layer films (200 nm/12~93 nm/200 nm) were prepared on Si(100) by DC-magnetron reactive-sputtering followed by air- or vacuum-annealing at 280~400℃ for 1.5 h, respectively. Magnetic properties and phases under different sandwich and annealing conditions were studied. In MIM structure, the incorporation of the interlayer iron does increase the magnetization measured under 8 kOe (M8K), but reduce coercivity (Hc). The Hc of as deposited films decreases from 354 Oe to 74 Oe; while M8K increases from 254 to 392 emu/cc. By annealing in air, the whole MIM tri-layer film becomes γ-Fe2Oa, Hc is about 550 Oe and M8K is around 250 emu/cc. The coercivity mechanism of as-deposited and annealed MIM tri layer films belongs to domain-wall pinning type. δM plots show that when the interlayer Fe thickness is 12 nm, the Fe and Fe3O4 layers are decoupled in the as-deposited and annealed states; while it is coupled in the as deposited state when the Fe thickness increases to 23 nm. Vacuum annealing of the MIM films leads to increase in both coercivity and magnetization, and to enhance the exchange coupling between layers.

    FeS2 nanomaterials with two-dimensional features hold great promise for electrochemical and photovoltaic applications. However, the preparation of ultrathin FeS2 nanosheets is still challenging because of the lack of a tailor-made approach. In this work, FeS2 nanosheets with a thickness of 2.1 nm are prepared through a Fe3O4-seeded approach. Uniform Fe3O4 nanoparticles are foremost synthesized via the standard method in organic media. The injection of a S solution leads to the replacement of O in Fe3O4 through anion-exchange, which generates (110) facet-enriched FeS2 nuclei. The subsequent (110) facet-mediated oriented attachment and fusion of FeS2 nuclei produce ultrathin FeS2 nanosheets. As catalysts in the hydrogen evolution reaction, FeS2 nanosheets exhibit good electrochemical activity.FeS2 nanomaterials with two-dimensional features hold great promise for electrochemical and photovoltaic applications.

    Full Text Available FeNi/FeMn bilayers were grown in a magnetic field and subjected to heat treatments at temperatures of 50 to 350 °C in vacuum or in a gas mixture containing oxygen. In the as-deposited state, the hysteresis loop of 30 nm FeNi layer was shifted. Low temperature annealing leads to a decrease of the exchange bias field. Heat treatments at higher temperatures in gas mixture result in partial oxidation of 20 nm thick FeMn layer leading to a nonlinear dependence of coercivity and a switching field of FeNi layer on annealing temperature. The maximum of coercivity and switching field were observed after annealing at 300 °C.

    With the new technologies about math algorithms and software interpretation to solve the inverse problem, two examples of electric tomography were done in two different places and over quaternary deposits that correspond to Sabana de Bogota. The first, placed, near the location of Tenjo, was done to see the behaviour of the geoelectrical model with low resistivity and electric contrast materials (alluvial deposits of Formaci6n Sabana. While the second, over deposits of fluvial-glacier origen, like Rio Tunjuelito's deposits, shows effects over high resistivity materials with great lateral variations of resistivity. The evaluation of the quality of data was made with lithologic columns in both cases, in general, the results were coherent and showed high resolution. The reached depths of investigation were 30% for the first example and 40%, for the second, situating the electrodes with Wenner amd Wenner-Sciumberguer arrays. Using the results of these two examples, clearly we can see that the depth of investigation depends on the media, the geometric array and the lenght of the section. This geophysic tool is very useful in shallow applications (100 m depth, and where high resolution and quality are needed.

O objetivo do trabalho foi estudar a mineralogia da fração argila e os teores de metais pesados dos solos do Cemitério Municipal do Boqueirão, em Curitiba (PR, e avaliar o risco de contaminação ambiental. Foram selecionados seis pontos dentro da área do cemitério, de onde se coletaram amostras em três profundidades (0-20, 20-80 e 80-120 cm. A fração de argila foi estudada por difratometria de raios X e análises térmicas. Os teores totais e trocáveis de Cr, Cu, Pb, Ni e Zn foram determinados. Os teores de Fe2O3 associados com minerais de Fe mais cristalinos foram baixos, o que reflete os baixos teores de Fe dos materiais de origem dos solos e diferentes estágios de desenvolvimentos dos solos. Dentre os metais analisados, os teores de Pb e Zn total foram os que apresentaram os maiores valores em relação a solos de mesmo material de origem, porém tais concentrações não são indicativas de poluição ambiental, e sim de uma branda contaminação. Conclui-se que os solos deste cemitério apresentam-se aptos para esta atividade, visto serem profundos, de textura argilosa e com alto potencial de adsorção de metais.

    The composition and size dependence of the magnetic properties of FePt/Fe exchange-spring bilayer films was studied using micromagnetic simulation. Based on the simulated hysteresis loops for composite layers with an identical thickness of 20 nm and different composition ratios, it can be observed that when the thickness ratio of Fe is 10%, an exchange-spring effect with a negative nucleation field appears; the switching field is greatly reduced compared to the rigid magnetic FePt, and the squareness ratio reaches its maximum value. When the thickness ratio of Fe is 25% and more, the nucleation fields become positive; meanwhile, the coercivity is smaller than the switching field, and the squareness ratio decreases because of the increase in the thickness of the Fe film. In addition, at a fixed thickness ratio and total volume, the switching field of the FePt/Fe bilayer films is further reduced, accompanied by a decrease in the squareness ratio due to an increase in the thickness of the Fe layer. - Highlights: • Exchange-spring behavior of FePt/Fe multi-layers was studied via micro-magnetic simulation. • As total thickness is 20 nm, optimal magnetic property is shown when the thickness ratio of Fe is 10%. • As total thickness is 20 nm, nucleation fields are positive when the thickness ratio of Fe is 25% and larger. • As total thickness is 20 nm, coercivity is greatly reduced when the thickness ratio of Fe is 25% and larger. • Under fixed volume and the thickness ratio of Fe (10%), switching field can be reduced by reducing the bottom size.

Falta poco para que se consolide sobre ese lado una gran ciudad lineal de un extremo al otro.

Mientras en la margen derecha, más angosta y empinada, se suceden pueblitos como Huaripampa, Muquiyauyo, Sincos, Mito y Orcotuna, menos tocados por la fiebre comercial y el desarrollo, pero más preservados. Las dos carreteras paralelas se unen pasando y, sin entrar a Jauja, dirigiéndose en una sola vía hacia La Oroya, y por el otro extremo la ruta desde Huancayo se dirige hacia Huancavelica. Esa es la imagen actual, pero, muchos siglos atrás, se piensa que el valle fue un gran lago que terminó desaguando por la quebrada de Izcuchaca en Huancayo, quedando un valle regado por un río.

    A new method for the determination of Fe by thin layer resin phase spectrophotometry in alkali condition was reported. The complex anion formed by Fe(Ⅱ) and VA was absorbed on the 717#resin and Fe was determined by making thin layer. This method had a high sensitivity (ε620=3.0×105 L/mol·cm), which was 15 times higher than that of liquid phase spectrophotometry. It had been proved a satisfactory precision (5.0μg Fe, n=6, RSD=1.8%). The trace Fe in natural water was determined and the recovery was 97%.

    Full Text Available A Cidade dos Meninos de São Vicente de Paulo, é uma das mais ousadas e completas abordagens no enfrentamento do problema dos menores de rua no Brasil. Este artigo, descreve a experiência da “Cidade dos Meninos” e de seu idealizador, apoiando-se em teorias recentes sobre empreendedorismo social. Atenção especial é dada à definição de empreendedor social catalítico (WADDOCK; POST, 1991, relacionando a atuação da liderança da Cidade dos Meninos a esse perfil. Uma das possíveis conclusões é que, em países em desenvolvimento como o Brasil, o empreendedor social catalítico não pode exercer apenas a função de criador e implementador de políticas, face a dimensão da carência e do problema com o qual ele se confronta, envolvendo-se então na ação direta

Todo hematologista habituado pode facilmente fazer o diagnóstico do estado da célula plasmocitária pela sua morfologia, seu tamanho e sua coloração. Nos quadros mais proeminentes de predominância de células de linhagem plasmocitária, os exames hematológicos e clínicos aliados ao mielograma, auxiliarão no diagnóstico do plasmocitoma. A nosso ver, os sinais (qualitativos, distintivos, de natureza citológica, que aparecem nos mielogramas no caso de plasmocitoma são: a Pleomorfismo e dismorfismo na célula plasmática; b "Rouleaux" de hemácias, já visível no hemograma; c Aumento das dimensões de alguns metamielócitos e bastonetes, acompanhados geralmente de atipias nucleares. Atipias e plurissegmentação nos segmentados; d No setor plaquetogenético aparecem plaquetas grandes e certo grau de perturbação nos megacarióticos, traduzido ás vezes pela presença de núcleos nus.Two hundred fifty bone marrow specimens, including twenty seven from hematologically normal patients, were examined hitologically. The Wright's and Brachet's stains were used. Plasma cells were rarely seen in the peripheral blood and bone marrow of normal individuals, but they were prominent constituents in some pathological states. A number significantly increased of plasma cells or mieloma cells were usually recognized in bone marrow from patients with plasmacytoma. These cells ranged from a very anaplastic immature form to closely resembling plasma cell. Even in the same patient, considerable pleomorphism often occured, and variation in cell size, number of nuclei and degree of nuclear immaturity were common. Although the results report certain observations regarding to the other cell series in patients with plasmacytoma. The most suggestive evidences

    A new molecule-based magnet containing Fe 2+, Fe 3+, Cu(opba) 2- and Bu 4N +, with opba=ortho-phenylenebis(oxamato) and Bu 4N +=tetra-n-butylammonium, was synthesized. The samples were characterized by infrared spectroscopy, elemental analysis, atomic absorption, vibrating sample magnetometry and 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy. The magnetic measurements show that the compound presents a magnetic transition around 25 K and a high coercivity, around 1.3 T. Above the transition temperature, the Mössbauer spectrum is dominated by a broad doublet characteristic of Fe 2+. At 20 K, the spectrum shows clear magnetic splitting and at least two non-equivalent Fe sites can be identified. To the best of our knowledge, this compound presents the highest coercive field observed for an iron-based molecular magnetic system.

    Nuclear level densities for $^{56,57}$Fe have been extracted from the primary $\\gamma$-ray spectra using ($^3$He,$^3$He$^{\\prime}\\gamma$) and ($^3$He,$\\alpha \\gamma$) reactions. Nuclear thermodynamic properties for $^{56}$Fe and $^{57}$Fe are investigated using the experimental level densities. These properties include entropy, Helmholtz free energy, caloric curves, chemical potential, and heat capacity. In particular, the breaking of Cooper pairs and single-quasiparticle entropy are discussed and shown to be important concepts for describing nuclear level density. Microscopic model calculations are performed for level densities of $^{56,57}$Fe. The experimental and calculated level densities are compared. The average number of broken Cooper pairs and the parity distribution are extracted as a function of excitation energy for $^{56,57}$Fe from the model calculations.

    Although there have been many studies reporting the photochemical formation of Fe(II) in various aqueous-phase such as rain, cloud waters, seawater and aerosols, the detailed formation mechanisms are not well understood. To better understand the mechanisms of Fe(II) formation, we attempted to determine the molar absorptivity and the quantum yield of Fe(II) photoformation for individual Fe(III)-dicarboxylate species. The concentrations of Fe(II) and total dissolved Fe were measured by a Ferrozine-HPLC method. The Visual MINTEQ computer program was used to calculate the equilibrium concentrations of chemical species in the solutions of Fe(III)-dicarboxylate complexes. The molar absorptivity and the product of the quantum yield and the molar absorptivity of Fe(III)- dicarboxylate complex can be analysed by UV-VIS spectrophotometer and photochemical experiments, and these experimental data were combined with the calculated equilibrium Fe(III) speciation to determine individual molar absorptivity and quantum yield of Fe(II) photoformation for a specific Fe(III)-dicarboxylate complex. Preliminary results, using an oxalate whose quantum yield has been previously reported, indicate that this approach gives lower quantum yield values in air saturated solutions than previously reported.

    The objective of the present study was to compare the toxicity and availability of Fe(Ⅱ) and Fe(Ⅲ) to Caco-2 cells.Cellular damage was studied by measuring cell proliferation and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release. The activities of two major antioxidative enzymes [superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione peroxidase (GPx)] and differentiation marker (alkaline phosphatase) were determined after the cells were exposed to different levels of iron salts. The cellular iron concentration was investigated to evaluate iron bioavailability. The results show that iron uptake of the cells treated with Fe(Ⅱ) is significantly higher than that of the cells treated with Fe(Ⅲ) (P<0.05). Fe(Ⅱ) at a concentration>1.5 mmol/L was found to be more effective in reducing cellular viability than Fe(Ⅲ). LDH release investigation suggests that Fe(Ⅱ) can reduce stability of the cell membrane. The activities of SOD and GPx of the cells treated with Fe(Ⅱ) were higher than those of the cells treated with Fe(Ⅲ), although both of them increased with raising iron supply levels. The results indicate that both Fe(Ⅱ) and Fe(Ⅲ) could reduce the cellular antioxidase gene expression at high levels.

    {sup 57}Fe conversion electron Moessbauer spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, electrochemical and magnetic measurements were used to study pulse electroplated Fe-P and Ni-Fe coatings. XRD and {sup 57}Fe CEMS measurements revealed the amorphous character of the novel pulse plated Fe-P alloys. CEM spectra indicated significant differences in the short range order and in the magnetic anisotropy between the Fe-P deposits pulse plated at medium long deposition time (t{sub on} = 2 ms), with short relaxation time (t{sub off} = 9 ms) and low current density (I{sub p} = 0.05 Acm{sup -2}) or at short deposition time (t{sub on} = 1 ms) with long relaxation time (t{sub off} = 250 ms) and high current density (I{sub p} = 1.0 Acm{sup -2}). The broad peaks centred around the fcc reflections in XRD of the pulse plated Ni-22 wt.% Fe deposit reflected a microcrystalline Ni-Fe alloy with a very fine, 5-8 nm, grain size. The CEM spectrum of the pulse plated Ni-22 wt.% Fe coating corresponded to a highly disordered solid solution alloy containing a minute amount of ferrihydrite. Extreme favourable soft magnetic properties were observed with these Ni-Fe and Fe-P pulse plated thin layers.

    Sorbitol, short chain molecules, have been used to stabilise of Fe@FeO x nanoparticles produced in the gas phase under the ultra-high vacuum (UHV) conditions. The sorbitol coated Fe@FeO x nanoparticles produced by our method have a narrow size distribution with a hydrodynamic diameter of 35 nm after NaOH is added to the solution. Magnetisation measurement shows that the magnetic nanoparticles are superparamagnetic at 100 K and demonstrate hysteresis at 5 K with an anisotropy constant of 5.31 × 104 J/m3 (similar to bulk iron). Also, it is shown that sorbitol is only suitable for stabilising the Fe@FeO x suspensions, and it does not prevent further oxidation of the metallic Fe core. According to MRI measurement, the nanoparticles have a high transverse relaxation rate of 425 mM-1 s-1.

A portion of hydrogen brings the counteraction on the surface of cathode leading nickel-iron alloys to be anomalous in the process of co-depositing. The results of X-ray diffraction (XRD) show that the Ni-Fe alloys layer is amorphous. The Giant Magneto -Impedance (GMI) effect of Ni-Fe alloys was obtained under the optimal conditions, dependence on the soft magnetic property of Ni-Fe amorphous thin film. As a result, the ratios△ Z/Z of NiFe/Cu/NiFe amorphous thin film are 30% at 40 kHz which is in low frequency. Furthermore, the GMI value of NiFe/Cu/NiFe amorphous thin film with a sandwich structure is higher than that of single-layer ferromagnetic films of the same thickness.

    This paper uses the density functional theory (DFT)(B3p86) of Gaussian03 to optimize the structure of Fe2 molecule. The result shows that the ground state for Fe2 molecule is a 9-multiple state, which shows spin polarization effect of Fe2 molecule of transition metal elements for the first time. Meanwhile, we have not found any spin pollution because the wavefunction of the ground state does not mingle with wavefunctions with higher energy states. So, that the ground state for Fe2 molecule is a 9-multiple state is indicative of the spin polarization effect of Fe2 molecule of transition metal elements. That is, there exist 8 parallel spin electrons. The non-conjugated electron is greatest in number. These electrons occupy different spacious tracks, so that the energy of the Fe2 molecule is minimized. It can be concluded that the effect of parallel spin of the Fe2 molecule is larger than the effect of the conjugated molecule, which is obviously related to the effect of electron d delocalization. In addition, the Murrell-Sorbie potential functions with the parameters for the ground state and other states of Fe2 molecule are derived. Dissociation energy De for the ground state of Fe2 molecule is 2.8586ev, equilibrium bond length Re is 0.2124nm, vibration frequency ωe is 336.38 cm-1. Its force constants f2, f3, and f4 are 1.8615aJ·nm-2, -8.6704a J·nm-3, 29.1676aJ·nm-4 respectively. The other spectroscopic data for the ground state of Fe2 moleculeωeχe, Be, αe are 1.5461 cm-1, 0.1339 cm-1, 7.3428×10-4 cm-1 respectively.

    Modern iron-silica deposits of small yellow to rust coloured mounds and chimney-like structures were found in a low-temperature venting area distal to a white smoker type hydrothermal vent site at the south-western part of the Mohns Ridge, North Atlantic. Individual stratified mm to cm thick laminated layers within these structures are largely composed of branching, twisted filaments resembling encrusted stalks of Fe-oxidising bacteria. DNA analyses have confirmed the presence of both Fe-oxidising (Mariprofundus ferrooxidans and other ζ-Proteobacteria) and Fe-reducing bacteria (Shewanellaceae). Similar morphologic features, such as several mm thick red hematite-rich laminae and micron-scale filamentous structures concentrated in discrete laminae, have also been found in Early Ordovician volcanogenic massive sulphide (VMS) hosted jasper deposits in the Løkken-Høydal area, Norway [1]. These filamentous structures are believed to be formed by Fe-oxidising bacteria similar to Mariprofundus ferrooxidans [2]. Here, we compare the Fe isotope composition of these two different types of Fe-Si deposits with the aim to gain further information about deposition mechanisms and the role of microorganisms in Fe redox cycling of deep-sea hydrothermal systems. Fe isotope compositions of the modern biogenic Fe-Si deposit vary between -2.09 and -0.66 ‰ in δ56Fe values, a range that is comparable to late Archaean to early Proterozoic banded iron formations. The ~490 Ma old Løkken jaspers show a similar variation, but with significantly higher δ56Fe values ranging from -0.39 to +0.89 ‰. The Fe isotopic composition of the Løkken jaspers clearly correlates with morphological features with the lowest δ56Fe values in layered and the highest ones in brecciform jaspers. Our data demonstrate that variations in Fe isotope compositions of the modern Fe-Si deposit cannot be explained by a single process, but rather reflect the full complexity of Fe redox cycling within deep

    The intermetallic narrow-gap semiconductor FeGa3 is one of the few Fe-based diamagnetic materials. Experimentally, Ge doping induces a ferromagnetic (FM) state. The mechanism responsible for this FM response is still unestablished, but there are proposals of itinerant magnetism to explain this behavior. Our DFT simulations show that inserting holes induces a delocalized FM response, while inserting electrons induces a localized FM response around some Fe atoms. We also modeled different distributions of Ge substitution and observe that the FM response depends on the Ge concentration and also on the Ge distribution on the Ga sites. We observed that the extra electrons become localized in some specific Fe atoms, rather than delocalized over the entire crystal lattice, as expected from an itinerant model. For experimental probing of this scenario, we have performed 57Fe Mössbauer spectroscopy on flux-grown singlecrystalline samples. The resulting resonance peak shape supports a localized model for ferromagnetism, since it is possible to resolve the presence of two distinct Fe isomer shifts (despite a single crystallographic site), expected to correspond to Fe atoms with high and low magnetic moments.

    The nitrate- and Fe(III)-reducing bacterium Paracoccus versutus LYM was characterized in terms of its ability to perform Fe(II)EDTA-NO reduction coupled with Fe(II)EDTA oxidation (NO-dependent Fe(II)EDTA oxidation, NDFO). It experienced a single anaerobic FeEDTA redox cycling through NDFO and dissimilatory Fe(III)EDTA reduction in FeEDTA culture. The increase in the Fe(II)EDTA concentration contributed to the ascending Fe(II)EDTA-NO reduction rate. The amount of glucose controlled the rate and extent of Fe(II) oxidation during NDFO. Without glucose addition, Fe(II)EDTA-NO reduction rate was at a rather slow rate even in presence of relatively sufficient Fe(II)EDTA. Unlike aqueous Fe(2+) and solid-phase Fe(II), Fe(II)EDTA could prevent cells from encrustations. These findings suggested the occurrence of NDFO preferred being beneficial via a mixotrophic physiology in the presence of an organic cosubstrate to being out of consideration for metabolic strategy.

  2. Change of Electronic Structure and Magnetic Properties with MgO and Fe Thicknesses in Fe/MgO/Fe Magnetic Tunnel Junction

    2006-01-01

    The effects of the thickness of MgO and Fe on the electronic structure and magnetic properties of Fe/MgO/Fe magnetic tunnel junction was studied using the first principle method. Two series of models with MgO of different thicknesses: Fe(3)MgO(t)Fe(3) (t=1,3,5,7) and with Fe of varied thicknesses: Fe(t)MgO(3)Fe(t) (t=3,4,5,6,7) were established. Calculated results show that in all the models the magnetic moment of Fe increases at the Fe/MgO interface and surface as compared with that of the inner layers. The magnetic moment of each Fe layer was found to be independent of MgO thicknesses, while the spin-polarization of Fe layer at the interface shows a slight change in function of the MgO thicknesses. The tunneling magnetoresistance (TMR) ratio estimated by the Julliere model has the same change tendency as the spin-polarization has, and the largest value is obtained at the MgO thickness of 5 atomic layers. When the Fe thickness increases, the spin-polarization of interface Fe layer follows up an increase with a decrease. The highest TMR value is achieved when the Fe thickness is of 4 atomic layers.

    We report high-resolution photodetachment spectra of the cryogenically cooled iron monoxide clusters Fe4O- and Fe5O- obtained with slow photoelectron velocity-map imaging (cryo-SEVI). Well-resolved vibrational progressions are observed in both sets of spectra, and transitions to low-lying excited states of both species are seen. In order to identify the structural isomers, electronic states, and vibrational modes that contribute to the cryo-SEVI spectra of these clusters, experimental results are compared with density functional theory calculations and Franck-Condon simulations. The main bands observed in the SEVI spectra are assigned to the 15A2←16B2 photodetachment transition of Fe4O- and the 17A'←18A″ photodetachment transition of Fe5O-. We report electron affinities of 1.6980(3) eV for Fe4O and 1.8616(3) eV for Fe5O, although there is some uncertainty as to whether the 15A2 state is the true ground state of Fe4O. The iron atoms have a distorted tetrahedral geometry in Fe4O0/- and a distorted trigonal-bipyramidal arrangement in Fe5O0/-. For both neutral and anionic species, the oxygen atom preferably binds in a μ2-oxo configuration along the cluster edge. This finding is in contrast to prior predictions that Fe5O0/- exhibits a μ3 face-bound structure.

    Electrospun polyacrylonitrile nanofibers (PAN NFs) with entrapped water-soluble Fe-aminoclay (FeAC) [FeAC-PAN NFs] were prepared. Slow dropwise addition of water-soluble FeAC into a PAN solution, less aggregated of FeAC into electrospun PAN NFs was one-pot evolved without FeAC post-decoration onto as-prepared PAN NFs. Taking into consideration both the Fe{sup 3+} source in FeAC and the improved surface hydrophilicity, the feasibility of Fentonlike reaction for decolorization of cationic model dye methylene blue (MB) under 6 hrs UV-light irradiation was established. In the case where FeAC-PAN NFs were enhanced by hydrogen peroxide (H{sub 2}O{sub 2}) injection, the apparent kinetic reaction rates were increased relative to those for the PAN NFs. Thus, our flexible FeAC-PAN NF mats can be effectively utilized in water/waste treatment and other environmental engineering applications.

  6. Effect of oxidation rate and Fe(II) state on microbial nitrate-dependent Fe(III) mineral formation.

    A nitrate-dependent Fe(II)-oxidizing bacterium was isolated and used to evaluate whether Fe(II) chemical form or oxidation rate had an effect on the mineralogy of biogenic Fe(III) (hydr)oxides resulting from nitrate-dependent Fe(II) oxidation. The isolate (designated FW33AN) had 99% 16S rRNA sequence similarity to Klebsiella oxytoca. FW33AN produced Fe(III) (hydr)oxides by oxidation of soluble Fe(II) [Fe(II)sol] or FeS under nitrate-reducing conditions. Based on X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, Fe(III) (hydr)oxide produced by oxidation of FeS was shown to be amorphous, while oxidation of Fe(II)sol yielded goethite. The rate of Fe(II) oxidation was then manipulated by incubating various cell concentrations of FW33AN with Fe(II)sol and nitrate. Characterization of products revealed that as Fe(II) oxidation rates slowed, a stronger goethite signal was observed by XRD and a larger proportion of Fe(III) was in the crystalline fraction. Since the mineralogy of Fe(III) (hydr)oxides may control the extent of subsequent Fe(III) reduction, the variables we identify here may have an effect on the biogeochemical cycling of Fe in anoxic ecosystems.

    Dissimilatory microbial reduction of solid-phase Fe(III)-oxides and Fe(III)-bearing phyllosilicates (Fe(III)-phyllosilicates) is an important process in anoxic soils, sediments, and subsurface materials. Although various studies have documented the relative extent of microbial reduction of single-phase Fe(III)-oxides and Fe(III)-phyllosilicates, detailed information is not available on interaction between these two processes in situations where both phases are available for microbial reduction. The goal of this research was to use the model dissimilatory iron-reducing bacterium (DIRB) Geobacter sulfurreducens to study Fe(III)-oxide vs. Fe(III)-phyllosilicate reduction in a range of subsurface materials and Fe(III)-oxide stripped versions of the materials. Low temperature (12K) Mossbauer spectroscopy was used to infer changes in the relative abundances of Fe(III)-oxide, Fe(III)-phyllosilicate, and phyllosilicate-associated Fe(II) (Fe(II)-phyllosilicate). A Fe partitioning model was employed to analyze the fate of Fe(II) and assess the potential for abiotic Fe(II)-catalyzed reduction of Fe(III)-phyllosilicates. The results showed that in most cases Fe(III)- oxide utilization dominated (70-100 %) bulk Fe(III) reduction activity, and that electron transfer from oxide-derived Fe(II) played only a minor role (ca. 10-20 %) in Fe partitioning. In addition, the extent of Fe(III)-oxide reduction was positively correlated to surface area-normalized cation exchange capacity and the phyllosilicate-Fe(III)/total Fe(III) ratio, which suggests that the phyllosilicates in the natural sediments promoted Fe(III)-oxide reduction by binding of oxide-derived Fe(II), thereby enhancing Fe(III)-oxide reduction by reducing or delaying the inhibitory effect that Fe(II) accumulation on oxide and DIRB cell surfaces has on Fe(III)-oxide reduction. In general our results suggest that although Fe(III)-oxide reduction is likely to dominate bulk Fe(III) reduction in most subsurface sediments, Fe

    The reduction of substrates catalyzed by nitrogenase normally requires nucleotide-dependent Fe protein delivery of electrons to the MoFe protein, which contains the active site FeMo-cofactor. Here, it is reported that independent substitution of three amino acids (ß-98Tyr→His, α-64Tyr→His, and ß-99Phe→His) located between the P cluster and FeMo-cofactor within the MoFe protein endows it with the ability to reduce protons to H2, azide to ammonia, and hydrazine to ammonia without the need for Fe protein or ATP. Instead, electrons can be provided by the low potential reductant polyaminocarboxylate ligated Eu(II) (Em -1.1 to -0.84 V vs NHE). The crystal structure of the ß-98Tyr→His variant MoFe protein was determined, revealing only small changes near the amino acid substitution that affect the solvent structure and immediate vicinity between the P cluster and the FeMo-cofactor, with no global conformational changes observed. Computational normal mode analysis on the nitrogenase complex reveal coupling in the motions of the Fe protein and the region of the MoFe protein with these three amino acids, which suggests a possible mechanism for how Fe protein might communicate deep within the MoFe protein subtle changes that profoundly affect intramolecular electron transfer and substrate reduction. This work was supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation (MCB-1330807) to JWP and LCS. This material is based upon work supported by the U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Science, Office of Basic Energy Sciences (DE-SC0010687 and DE-SC0010834 to LCS and DRD) and the Division of Chemical Sciences, Geosciences, and Bio-Sciences (SR).

    The effects of FeCl₃ and Fe-EDTA on the development of psoriasis were studied in the mouse model of vaginal epithelium and tail epidermis. The mitoses of vaginal epithelial cell in female mice of their estrogenic stage and the formation of granular cell layers in male mouse tail scale were observed. Mice were randomly divided into eight groups and treated with normal saline, methotrexate, and different doses of two iron forms, FeCl₃ and Fe-EDTA, respectively, for 10 days. To explore the influence of FeCl₃ and Fe-EDTA on the excretion of Cu, Fe, Zn, Ca, Mg, Mn, and Se, the concentration of those elements in liver and kidney was analyzed by atomic absorption spectrometry. The different doses of FeCl₃ or Fe-EDTA could obviously inhibit the mitoses of vaginal epithelial cell (pEDTA, and between experimental groups and methotrexate group acted as the positive control (p>0.05). Compared with the negative group, the concentrations of Cu, Fe, Zn, Ca, Mg, Mn, and Se in liver and kidney of experimental groups and positive control group were not significantly changed (p > 0.05). FeCl₃ and Fe-EDTA are as effective as methotrexate on inhibiting hyperplasia of epidermal cells and increasing the formation of granular cell layers, and the concentrations of Cu, Fe, Zn, Ca, Mg, Mn, and Se in liver and kidney of experimental groups and positive control group were not significantly changed compared with the negative group, possibly retarding the development of psoriasis.

    Full Text Available Fluorine atoms can be introduced to Sm2Fe17 using XeF2 below 423 K. The resulting fluorinated Sm2Fe17 powders have ferromagnetic phases containing Sm2Fe17FY1(0Fe17FY2 (1Fe17, and α-Fe. The unit cell for Sm2Fe17 is elongated by the fluorination. The largest unit cell volume among the rhombohedral Sm2Fe17 compounds is 83.8 nm3, which is 5.8% larger than Sm2Fe17. The rhombohedral Sm2Fe17 with the largest unit cell volume is dissociated above 873 K, and fluorination increases Curie temperature from 403 K for Sm2Fe17 to 675 K. This increase can be explained by the magneto-volume effect.

    To understand the differences in behaviour between up- and down-spin electrons observed in the half-metallic Sr{sub 2}FeMoO{sub 6} double perovskite, the density of states (DOS) was studied for the (FeO{sub 6}){sup -4} and (MoO{sub 6}){sup -6} octahedral clusters using first-principles density functional theory within the generalised gradient approximation (GGA) scheme and the Perdew-Burke-Ernzerhof (PBE) functional. Our results reveal that half-metallic character is present, even starting from an isolated (FeO{sub 6}){sup -4} cluster, and is a consequence of spin decoupling of antibonding hybridisations between iron t{sub 2g} states and oxygen p states (t{sub 2g}{sup a} states), i.e., t{sub 2g}{sup a} states lie below the Highest Occupied Molecular Orbital (HOMO) in the up-spin channel, whereas they lie above the HOMO level in the down-spin channel. The spin-induced shifting between up-spin and down-spin DOS situates the HOMO in such a way that the molecular orbitals oxygen p states (p bands) are fully spin-paired by octet electrons. Thus, the down-spin channel has metallic character because the HOMO lies just at the p bands, and the up-spin channel is semiconducting because the HOMO falls within the energy gap between the t{sub 2g}{sup a} and e{sub g}{sup a} bands. Finally, the (MoO{sub 6}){sup -6} octahedron does not inhibit the perovskite half-metallic character since this cluster has a zero total spin.

Uma das estratégias para compreender a formação dos componentes curriculares no espaço da escola, sendo uma instituição da modernidade que está intimamente relacionada ao projeto da sociedade burguesa urbano-industrial, é refletir como seus caracteres são construídos. A escola vem desempenhando a função de formar e conformar os sujeitos individuais e coletivos aos padrões de racionalização e burocratização dessa sociedade. Embora outras instituições sociais realizem a mesma tarefa, cabe à escola o papel de transmitir os saberes legitimados, fundamental para atender às demandas sociais. Os componentes curriculares colaboram nesta mediação e, dentre outros, é no Ensino Religioso que se percebe concretizado especialmente pelos livros didáticos, que por meio de seus textos e exercícios expressam saberes a serem transmitidos. Compreende-se que por meio dos livros didáticos é possível verificar o desenvolvimento desta disciplina, especialmente em sua origem quando era denominada aula de religião, e que pretendia consolidar o projeto de uma religião hegemônica do país, através de seus catecismos como instrumento de ensino de inúmeras gerações.

Mas, o conjunto de Procedimentos descritos nas IFRSs é fortemente afetado pelo julgamento profissional dos contadores. O mesmo fato ocorre com o auditor, que deve avaliar se a aplicação das normas resulta em fair presentation. Esse julgamento dependerá da interpretação do auditor sobre o nível de probabilidade associada a determinadas expressões presentes no texto das normas contábeis. Alguns autores evidenciam que existem diferenças significativas na interpretação das expressões verbais de probabilidade entre os auditores e que aspectos comportamentais estão influenciando a emissão do parecer de auditoria. Diante desse cenário, o objetivo deste estudo foi investigar como se comportam os auditores no julgamento de situações subjetivas, inseridos em um cenário pessimista ou otimista, no momento da avaliação dos critérios de reconhecimento e/ou mensuração, quando da execução dos trabalhos da auditoria. A amostra desta pesquisa é composta por 258 auditores independentes com registro de responsáveis técnicos junto à Comissão de Valores Mobiliários (CVM.

    Grazing incidence neutron reflectometry provides an opportunity to measure the depth profile of a thin film sample with a resolution <1 nm, in a non-destructive way. In this way the diffusion across the interfaces can also be measured. In addition, neutrons have contrast among the isotopes, making it feasible to measure the self-diffusion. In the present work, the isotope multilayers of [FeN/57 FeN]10 and [FeN/Fe15N]10 were prepared using magnetron sputtering and self-diffusion of Fe and N was investigated. It was found that N diffusion is slower compared to Fe and does not follow the atomic size dependence.

    We employed periodic DFT calculations (PBE-D2) to investigate the catalytic conversion of methanol over graphene embedded with Fe and FeO. Two possible pathways of dehydrogenation to formaldehyde and dehydration to dimethyl ether (DME) over these catalysts were examined. Both processes are initiated with the activation of methanol over the catalytic center through O-H cleavage. As a result, a methoxo-containing intermediate is formed. Subsequently, H-transfer from the methoxy to the adjacent ligand leads to the formation of formaldehyde. Conversely, the activation of the second methanol over the intermediate gives DME and H2O. Over Fe/graphene, the dehydration process is kinetically and thermodynamically preferable. Unlike Fe/graphene, FeO/graphene is predicted to be an efficient catalyst for the dehydrogenation process. Oxidative dehydrogenation over FeO/graphene takes place through two steps with free energy barriers of 5.7 and 10.2 kcal mol(-1).

    Denial of Service (DoS) attacks disable network services for legitimate users. A McAfee report shows that eight out of ten Critical Infrastructure Providers (CIPs) surveyed had a significant Distributed DoS (DDoS) attack in 2010.1 Researchers proposed many approaches for detecting these attacks in the past decade. Anomaly based DoS detection is the most common. In this approach, the detector uses statistical features; such as the entropy of incoming packet header fields like source IP addresses or protocol type. It calculates the observed statistical feature and triggers an alarm if an extreme deviation occurs. However, intrusion detection systems (IDS) using entropy based detection can be fooled by spoofing. An attacker can sniff the network to collect header field data of network packets coming from distributed nodes on the Internet and fuses them to calculate the entropy of normal background traffic. Then s/he can spoof attack packets to keep the entropy value in the expected range during the attack. In this study, we present a proof of concept entropy spoofing attack that deceives entropy based detection approaches. Our preliminary results show that spoofing attacks cause significant detection performance degradation.

    In order to control the size and distribution of the high conductive Fe2P in LiFePO4/Fe2P composite, two different cooling rates (Fast: 15 ℃·min-1, Slow: 2 ℃·min-1) were employed after mechanical alloying.The discharge capacity of the fast cooled was 83 mAh·g-1 and the slow cooled 121 mAh·g-1.The particle size of the synthesized powder was examined by transmission electron microscopy and distribution of Fe2P was characterized using scanning electron microscopy (SEM).In addition, two-step heat treatment was carried out for better distribution of Fe2P.X-ray diffraction (XRD) and Rietveld refinement reveal that LiFePO4/Fe2P composite consists of 95.77% LiFePO4 and 4.33% of Fe2P.

    Full Text Available We report the investigation of temperature dependent magnetic properties of FePt and FePt(30/M(Cu,C/Fe(5 trilayer thin films prepared by using magnetron sputtering technique at ambient temperature and postannealed at different temperatures. L10 ordering, hard magnetic properties, and thermal stability of FePt films are improved with increasing postannealing temperature. In FePt/M/Fe trilayer, the formation of interlayer exchange coupling between magnetic layers depends on interlayer materials and interface morphology. In FePt/C/Fe trilayer, when the C interlayer thickness was about 0.5 nm, a strong interlayer exchange coupling between hard and soft layers was achieved, and saturation magnetization was enhanced considerably after using interlayer exchange coupling with Fe. In addition, incoherent magnetization reversal process observed in FePt/Fe films changes into coherent switching process in FePt/C/Fe films giving rise to a single hysteresis loop. High temperature magnetic studies up to 573 K reveal that the effective reduction in the coercivity decreases largely from 34 Oe/K for FePt/Fe film to 13 Oe/K for FePt/C(0.5/Fe film demonstrating that the interlayer exchange coupling seems to be a promising approach to improve the stability of hard magnetic properties at high temperatures, which is suitable for high-performance magnets and thermally assisted magnetic recording media.

    Full Text Available Magnetically exchange coupled SrFe12O19/Fe-Co composites with different mass percentage of Fe-Co were synthesized through an ex situ process. The morphology, magnetic properties, and crystallization of SrFe12O19/Fe-Co composites were investigated. Lower mass percentage of Fe-Co presented an even distribution of Fe-Co nanoparticles on the surface of SrFe12O19, and effective magnetic exchange coupling between Fe-Co and SrFe12O19. Higher mass percentage of Fe-Co leads to an agglomeration of Fe-Co nanoparticles on SrFe12O19 surface, and a weak magnetic exchange coupling between Fe-Co and SrFe12O19. This ex situ process proposed a new method to synthesize magnetically exchange coupled SrFe12O19/Fe-Co core/shell composites with precise control of the magnetic properties. This method can also be potentially used for other hard/soft magnetic composite synthesis.

    Iron (Fe)-based nanoparticles are extremely valuable in biomedical applications owing to their low toxicity and high magnetization values at room temperature. In this study, we synthesized nearly monodisperse iron oxide (Fe3O4) and Fe@Fe3O4 (core: Fe, shell: Fe3O4) nanoparticles in aqueous medium under argon flow and then, coated them with various biocompatible ligands and silica. In this study, eight types of surface-modified nanoparticles were investigated, namely, Fe3O4@PAA (PAA = polyacrylic acid; Mw of PAA = 5100 amu and 15,000 amu), Fe3O4@PAA-FA (FA = folic acid; Mw of PAA = 5100 amu and 15,000 amu), Fe3O4@PEI-fluorescein (PEI = polyethylenimine; Mw of PEI = 1300 amu), Fe@Fe3O4@PEI (Mw of PEI = 10,000 amu), Fe3O4@SiO2 and Fe@Fe3O4@SiO2 nanoparticles. We characterized the prepared surface-modified nanoparticles using high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) absorption spectroscopy, a superconducting quantum interference device (SQUID), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy and confocal microscopy. Finally, we measured the cytotoxicity of the samples. The results indicate that the surface-modified nanoparticles are biocompatible and are potential candidates for various biomedical applications.

    We report on structural, magnetic, and superconducting properties of the spin-valve multilayer system CoOx/Fe1/Cu/Fe2/In. For most of the thicknesses of the second iron layer dFe2 up to 2 nm, we have observed a full spin-valve effect for the superconducting current, i.e., a complete transition from the normal to the superconducting state by changing the mutual orientation of the magnetizations of the Fe1 and Fe2 layers. For dFe2<1 nm, the superconducting transition temperature TcP for the parallel orientation of magnetizations of the Fe1 and Fe2 layers is smaller than that for the antiparallel orientation TcAP, which corresponds to the direct spin-valve effect. For dFe2⩾1 nm, we have found the inverse spin-valve effect with ΔTc=TcAP-TcP<0. Further, in samples with a fixed thickness of the In layer, we have observed an oscillating dependence of its superconducting transition temperature Tc on dFe2. The analysis of the Tc(dFe2) dependence using the theory of the superconducting-ferromagnetic proximity effect has enabled determination of all microscopic parameters of the studied system. With these parameters, a satisfactory description of the sign-changing oscillating behavior of the spin-valve effect ΔTc(dFe2) has been obtained using a recent theory by Fominov [Ya. V.

    Nitrate-reducing, Fe(II)-oxidizing bacteria were suggested to couple with enzymatic Fe(II) oxidation to nitrate reduction. Denitrification proceeds via intermediates (NO2 -, NO) that can oxidize Fe(II) abiotically at neutral and particularly at acidic pH. Here, we present a revised Fe(II) quantification protocol preventing artifacts during acidic Fe extraction and evaluate the contribution of abiotic vs. enzymatic Fe(II) oxidation in cultures of the nitrate-reducing, Fe(II) oxidizer Acidovorax sp. BoFeN1. Sulfamic acid used instead of HCl reacts with nitrite and prevents abiotic Fe(II) oxidation during Fe extraction. Abiotic experiments without sulfamic acid showed that acidification of oxic Fe(II) nitrite samples leads to 5.6-fold more Fe(II) oxidation than in anoxic samples because the formed NO becomes rapidly reoxidized by O(2) , therefore leading to abiotic oxidation and underestimation of Fe(II). With our revised protocol using sulfamic acid, we quantified oxidation of approximately 7 mm of Fe(II) by BoFeN1 within 4 days. Without addition of sulfamic acid, the same oxidation was detected within only 2 days. Additionally, abiotic incubation of Fe(II) with nitrite in the presence of goethite as surface catalyst led to similar abiotic Fe(II) oxidation rates as observed in growing BoFeN1 cultures. BoFeN1 growth was observed on acetate with N(2) O as electron acceptor. When adding Fe(II), no Fe(II) oxidation was observed, suggesting that the absence of reactive N intermediates (NO2 -, NO) precludes Fe(II) oxidation. The addition of ferrihydrite [Fe(OH)(3) ] to acetate/nitrate BoFeN1 cultures led to growth stimulation equivalent to previously described effects on growth by adding Fe(II). This suggests that elevated iron concentrations might provide a nutritional effect rather than energy-yielding Fe(II) oxidation. Our findings therefore suggest that although enzymatic Fe(II) oxidation by denitrifiers cannot be fully ruled out, its contribution to the observed Fe

  19. Nanophase Fe0 in lunar soils

    2005-06-01

    Back scattered electron and transmission electron imaging of lunar soil grains reveal an abundance of submicrometer-sized pure Fe00 globules that occur in the rinds of many soil grains and in the submillimeter sized vesicular glass-cemented grains called agglutinates. Grain rinds are amorphous silicates that were deposited on grains exposed at the lunar surface from transient vapors produced by hypervelocity micrometeorite impacts. Fe0 may have dissociated from Fe-compounds in a high temperature (< 3000°C) vapor phase and then condensed as globules on grain surfaces. The agglutinitic glass is a quenched product of silicate melts, also produced by micrometeorite impacts on lunar soils. Reduction by solar wind hydrogen in agglutinitic melts may have produced immiscible droplets that solidified as globules. The exact mechanism of formation of such Fe0 globules in lunar soils remains unresolved.

    Biosynthesis of nitrogenase FeMoco is a highly complex process that requires, minimally, the participation of nifS, nifU, nifB, nifE, nifN, nifV, nifH, nifD and nifK gene products. Previous genetic analyses have identified the essential factors for the assembly of FeMoco; however, the exact functions of these factors and the precise sequence of events during the assembly process had remained unclear until recently, when a number of the biosynthetic intermediates of FeMoco were identified and characterized by combined biochemical, spectroscopic and structural analyses. This review gives a brief account of the recent progress toward understanding the assembly process of FeMoco, which has identified some important missing pieces of this biosynthetic puzzle.

    This work is driven by the vision of engineering planar field emitters with ferromagnetic metal-insulator nanocomposite thin films, using swift heavy ion (SHI) irradiation method. FeCo nanoparticles inside SiO2 matrix, when subjected to SHI get elongated. Using this, we demonstrate here a planar field emitter with maximum current density of 550 μA/cm(2) at an applied field of 15 V/μm. The film, irradiated with 5 × 10(13) ions/cm(2) fluence (5e13) of 120 MeV Au(9+) ions, shows very high electron emitting quantum efficiency in comparison to its unirradiated counterpart. Surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy analysis of unirradiated and 5e13 films further confirms that the field emission (FE) enhancement is not only due to surface protrusions but also depends on the properties of entire matrix. We find experimental evidence of enhanced valence band density of states (VB DOS) for 5e13 film from XPS, which is verified in the electronic structure of a model FeCo cluster from first-principles based calculations combining density functional theory (DFT) and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The MD temperature is selected from the lattice temperature profile inside nanoparticles as deduced from thermal spike model. Increasing the irradiation fluence beyond 5e13, results in reduced VB DOS and melting of surface protrusions, thus causing reduction of FE current density. We finally conclude from theoretical analysis that change in fluence alters the co-ordination chemistry followed by the charge distribution and spin alignment, which influence the VB DOS and concurrent FE as evident from our experiment.

    Spin-polarized density functional theory computations have been carried out to study the stable adsorption configurations of Cun (n = 1-7, 13) on Fe and Fe3C surfaces for understanding the initial stages of copper promotion in catalysis. At low coverage, two-dimensional aggregation is more preferred over dispersion and three-dimensional aggregation on the Fe(110) and Fe(100) surfaces as well as the metallic Fe3C(010) surfaces, while dispersion is more favorable over aggregation on the Fe(111) surface. On the Fe3C(001) and Fe3C(100) surfaces with exposed iron and carbon atoms, the adsorbed Cu atoms prefer dispersion at low coverage, while aggregation along the iron regions at high coverage. On the iron surfaces, the adsorption energies of Cun (n = 2-7) are highest on Fe(111), medium on Fe(100) and lowest on Fe(110). On the Fe3C surfaces, the adsorption energies of Cun (n = 1-3) are highest on Fe3C(100), medium on Fe3C(010) and lowest on Fe3C(001), while, for n = 4-7 and 13, Fe3C(010) has stronger adsorption than Fe3C(100). On the basis of their differences in electronegativity, the adsorbed Cu atoms can oxidize the metallic Fe(110), Fe(100) and Fe3C(010) surfaces and become negatively charged. On the Fe3C(001) and Fe3C(100) surfaces with exposed iron and carbon atoms, the adsorbed Cu atoms interacting with surface carbon atoms are oxidized and positively charged. Unlike the most stable Fe(110) and Fe3C(001) surfaces, where the Fe(110) surface has stronger Cu affinity than the Fe3C(001) surface, which is in agreement with the experimental finding, the less and least stable Fe3C(010) and Fe3C(100) surfaces have stronger Cu affinities than the Fe(110) and Fe(100) surfaces. Since less stable facets are not preferably formed thermodynamically, it is crucial to prepare such surfaces to explore Cu adsorption and promotion, and this provides challenges to surface sciences.

    Well-dispersed Fe304 nanoparticles are synthesized via an oxidization method with NANO2 as oxidant. The microwave magnetic properties of the composites are studied with different volume fractions of Fe3O4 nanoparti-cles. It is found that a lower volume fraction corresponds to a higher magnetic resonance frequency. This could be ascribed to the enhancement of exchange interaction with a weakened dipolar interaction when the volume fraction decreases.

    We have studied the magnetic structure of Fe[Fe(CN)6]·4H2O, prepared by precipitation method, using neutron diffraction technique. Temperature dependent DC magnetization study down to 4.2 K shows that the compound undergoes from a high temperature disordered (paramagnetic) to an ordered magnetic phase transition at 22.6 K. Rietveld analysis of neutron diffraction pattern at 60 K (in its paramagnetic phase) revealed a face centred cubic structure with space group Fm3m. The structure contains three-dimensional network of straight Fe3+ –C≡N–Fe3+ chains along the edges of the unit cell cube. Fe3+ ions occupy 4 (0, 0, 0) and 4 (1/2, 1/2, 1/2) positions. Fe3+ (0, 0, 0) is surrounded octahedrally by six nitrogen atoms and Fe3+ (1/2, 1/2, 1/2) is surrounded octahedrally by six carbon atoms. Magnetic Rietveld refinement of neutron diffraction data at 11 K shows a ferromagnetic coupling between the two inequivalent Fe3+ sites. Refinement yielded an ordered moment of 4.4(6) and 0.8(6) B per Fe ion located at (0, 0, 0) and (1/2, 1/2, 1/2), respectively. Ordered moments are found to align along the face diagonal. The observed net moment from low temperature neutron diffraction study is consistent with DC magnetization results.

    It has been suggested in the literature that the (Fe/alpha) abundance ratio may be used as a chronometer, due to a delay in this ratio reaching its solar value as predicted by galactic chemical evolution models. Using grids of photoionization models along a sequence of the (Fe/Mg) abundance ratio vs.\\ metallicity with time in a giant elliptical starburst scenario, we investigate the relationship between the (Fe/Mg) abundance ratio and the FeII/MgII emission line flux ratio under the assumption that these lines originate in photoionized clouds within the broad emission line regions of quasars.

  9. The behavior of Fe3+/∑Fe during partial melting of spinel lherzolite

    Gaetani, Glenn A.

    2016-07-01

    This study presents an internally consistent model for the behavior of Fe3+/∑Fe during partial melting of spinel lherzolite. The Fe3+/∑Fe ratio for olivine is calculated on the basis of point defect thermodynamics, and the oxidation states of iron in the other solid phases are calculated using Fe3+/Fe2+ distribution between olivine and orthopyroxene, clinopyroxene, or spinel. Conservation of mass is used to relate the Fe3+/Fe2+ ratio of partial melt to the concentrations of Fe3+ and Fe2+ in the initial and residual solids as a function of pressure, temperature, and oxygen fugacity. Results from isobaric batch melting calculations demonstrate that the Fe3+/∑Fe ratio of the partial melt decreases with increasing melt fraction. Conversely, the Fe3+/∑Fe ratio of the partial melt increases with increasing melt fraction during decompression batch melting. The relative oxygen fugacity of the upper mantle depends on both the oxidation state of iron and mantle potential temperature. Results from incremental decompression melting calculations in which 1% melt is produced for each 100 MPa of decompression and then removed from the residual solid indicate that relative oxygen fugacity calculated from the oxidation state of iron in basaltic glass does not represent a unique value for the oceanic upper mantle but, rather, reflects conditions in the lower portion of the melting regime. A 100 °C change in mantle potential temperature produces a change in relative oxygen fugacity of ∼0.8 log units, similar to the global range inferred from mid-ocean ridge basalt glasses. It is necessary, therefore, to compare relative oxygen fugacity calculated from basaltic glass with proxies for potential temperature before drawing conclusions on heterogeneity of the oxidation state of iron in the oceanic upper mantle. Results from model calculations also suggest that the sub-arc mantle is intrinsically more oxidizing than the oceanic mantle because it is cooler. The global correlation

    Highlights: • Comparative study of the influence of U and J in FeSe and FeTe. • We found correlation effects are strong in Fe-3d orbitals in FeSe and FeTe. • Correlation effects are orbital selective in nature. - Abstract: We present a comparative study of the influence of Coulomb interaction and Hund’s coupling on the electronic structure of FeSe and FeTe. Our calculations are based on density functional theory (DFT) with local density approximation (LDA + U) framework employed in TB-LMTO ASA code. We found the correlation effects are orbital selective due to the strength of interorbital hybridization among the different Fe-3d orbitals mediated via the chalcogen (Se/Te-p) orbitals and are different in both the compounds. The Coulomb interaction is screened significantly by Te-p bands in FeTe. Similarly the orbital selection is different in both the compounds because of the difference in the chalcogen height.

    Density functional theory calculations were performed to study the structure and magnetic properties of bcc (α) and fcc (γ) Fe with 3 at.% carbon and manganese impurities. We find that all bcc-based Fe, Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C phases exhibit a ferromagnetic (FM) ground state, while the antiferromagnetic double-layer (AFMD) state is lowest in energy within the collinear spin approach in fcc Fe, Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C phases. However, the carbon and manganese impurities affect the local magnetic interactions significantly. The states with opposite manganese magnetic moments are quasi-degenerate in bcc Fe-Mn alloy, whereas octa-site carbon stabilizes ferromagnetic coupling of the nearest manganese atom with the Fe host. We demonstrate that the antiferromagnetic (AFM) fcc Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C alloys are intrinsically inhomogeneous magnetic systems. Carbon frustrates the local magnetic order by reorientation of magnetic moments of the nearest Mn and Fe atoms, and favors their ferromagnetic coupling. The competition between ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic Fe-Fe and Fe-Mn interactions and the local magnetovolume instability near carbon may give rise to the spin-glass-like regions observed in austenitic Fe-Mn-C alloys.

    Using the first-principles calculations, the elastic properties, anisotropy properties, electronic structures, Debye temperature and stability of Fe-Al (Fe3Al, FeAl, FeAl2, Fe2Al5 and FeAl3) binary compounds were calculated. The formation enthalpy and cohesive energy of these Fe-Al compounds are negative, and show they are thermodynamically stable structures. Fe2Al5 has the lowest formation enthalpy, which shows the Fe2Al5 is the most stable of Fe-Al binary compounds. These Fe-Al compounds display disparate anisotropy due to the calculated different shape of the 3D curved surface of the Young's modulus and anisotropic index. Fe3Al has the biggest bulk modulus with the value 233.2 GPa. FeAl has the biggest Yong's modulus and shear modulus with the value 296.2 GPa and 119.8 GPa, respectively. The partial density of states, total density of states and electron density distribution maps of the binary Fe-Al binary compounds are analyzed. The bonding characteristics of these Fe-Al binary compounds are mainly combination by covalent bond and metallic bonds. Meanwhile, also exist anti-bond effect. Moreover, the Debye temperatures and sound velocity of these Fe-Al compounds are explored.

    Density functional theory calculations were performed to study the structure and magnetic properties of bcc ({alpha}) and fcc ({gamma}) Fe with 3 at.% carbon and manganese impurities. We find that all bcc-based Fe, Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C phases exhibit a ferromagnetic (FM) ground state, while the antiferromagnetic double-layer (AFMD) state is lowest in energy within the collinear spin approach in fcc Fe, Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C phases. However, the carbon and manganese impurities affect the local magnetic interactions significantly. The states with opposite manganese magnetic moments are quasi-degenerate in bcc Fe-Mn alloy, whereas octa-site carbon stabilizes ferromagnetic coupling of the nearest manganese atom with the Fe host. We demonstrate that the antiferromagnetic (AFM) fcc Fe-C and Fe-Mn-C alloys are intrinsically inhomogeneous magnetic systems. Carbon frustrates the local magnetic order by reorientation of magnetic moments of the nearest Mn and Fe atoms, and favors their ferromagnetic coupling. The competition between ferromagnetic and antiferromagnetic Fe-Fe and Fe-Mn interactions and the local magnetovolume instability near carbon may give rise to the spin-glass-like regions observed in austenitic Fe-Mn-C alloys.

    We have measured electron-ion recombination for Fe$^{9+}$ forming Fe$^{8+}$ and for Fe$^{10+}$ forming Fe$^{9+}$ using merged beams at the TSR heavy-ion storage-ring in Heidelberg. The measured merged beams recombination rate coefficients (MBRRC) for relative energies from 0 to 75 eV are presented, covering all dielectronic recombination (DR) resonances associated with 3s->3p and 3p->3d core transitions in the spectroscopic species Fe X and Fe XI, respectively. We compare our experimental results to multi-configuration Breit-Pauli (MCBP) calculations and find significant differences. From the measured MBRRC we have extracted the DR contributions and transform them into plasma recombination rate coefficients (PRRC) for astrophysical plasmas with temperatures from 10^2 to 10^7 K. This spans across the regimes where each ion forms in photoionized or in collisionally ionized plasmas. For both temperature regimes the experimental uncertainties are 25% at a 90% confidence level.

    Interstellar clouds that exhibit strong Ca I and Fe I lines were called CaFe clouds. The ionisation equilibrium equations were used to model the column densities of Ca II, Ca I, K I, Na I, Fe I and Ti II in CaFe clouds. The chemical composition of CaFe clouds is that of the Solar System and no depletion of elements onto dust grains is seen. The CaFe clouds have high electron densities n=1 cm^-3 that leads to high column densities of neutral Ca and Fe.

    2009-01-01

    FeAs- single layer is tested as a simple model for LaFeAsO and BaFe2As2 based on firstprinciples calculations using generalized gradient approximation (GGA) and GGA+U. The calculated single-layer geometric and electronic structures are inconsistent with that of bulk materials. The bulk collinear antiferromagnetic ground state failed to be obtained in the FeAs- single layer. The monotonous behavior of the Fe-As distance in z direction upon electron or hole doping is also in contrast with bulk materials. The results indicate that,in LaFeAsO and BaFe2As2, interactions between FeAs layer and other layers beyond simple charge doping are important, and a single FeAs layer may not represent a good model for Fe based superconducting materials.

    First,it is proposed that hydrogen atoms occupy the interstitial sites in Fe3Al and FeAl.Then the environmental embrittlement of intermetallic compounds in Fe-Al alloys is studied in the light of calculated valence electron structures and bond energy of Fe3Al and FeAl containing hydrogen atoms.From the analyses it is found that the states of metal atoms will change,in which more lattice electrons will become covalent electrons to bond with hydrogen atoms when the atomic hydrogen diffuses into the intermetallic compounds in Fe-Al alloys,which will result in the decrease of local metallicity in Fe3Al and FeAl.Meanwhile,it is found that the crystal will easily cleave since solute hydrogen bonds with metal atoms and severely anisotropic bonds form.As a conclusion,these factors result in the environmental embrittlement of Fe3Al and FeAl.

    2016-05-01

    Systematic investigations of structural properties of 1-10% Fe doped ZnO nanostructure (Fe:ZnO NS) prepared via chemical precipitation method have been reported. Structural properties were probed thoroughly employing scanning electron microscope (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM), energy dispersive X-ray (EDAX) analysis and X-ray diffraction (XRD). Morphological transformation of nanostructures (NS) with Fe incorporation is evident in SEM/TEM images. Nanoparticles (NP) obtained with 1% Fe, evolve to nanorods (NR) for 3% Fe; NR transform to nanocones (NC) (for 5% and 7% Fe) and finally NC transform to nanoflakes (NF) at 10% Fe. Morover, primary phase of Zn1-xFexO along with secondary phases of ZnFe2O4 and Fe2O3 were also revealed through XRD measurements. Based on collective XRD, SEM, TEM, and EDAX interpretations, a model for morphological evolution of NS was proposed and the pivotal role of Fe dopant was deciphered.

    In the present work, we report a detailed theoretical investigation of a series of metalloporphyrin, MP (M = FeP, CoP and ZnP), molecules interacting with silicon carbide nanotube (SiCNT) by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations. In all calculations, we used the Perdew-Burke-Erzenhof (PBE) functional as employed in the SIESTA package. The detailed analysis of the structural and electronical properties of various optimized configurations is performed. The results show that among the MPs, adsorption of FeP molecule on the Si site with zigzag orientation is the most energetically preferable with a binding energy of -2.10 eV. Compared to SiCNTs, boron nitride nanotubes (BNNTs) have weaker interaction strength with the FeP molecule with -0.34 eV of binding energy. We have analyzed charge transfer between two interacting species trough well-known Mulliken, Hirshfeld and Voronoi charges analysis for aforementioned systems. The spin-polarized DFT calculations showed that the density of states (DOSs) are spin-polarized for the Fe-BNNT complex while the spin-polarization of the DOS spectra turn out to be less notable for MP-SiCNT complexes. Our results propose that FeP-SiCNT complex could be used for interesting applications in solar cell technology and nano-biosensors while FeP-BNNT complex might be considered for spintronic molecular devices.

    Full Text Available Fe-Cu films with low and high Fe : Cu ratio have been produced from the electrolytes with different Fe ion concentrations at a constant deposition potential of −1400 mV versus saturated calomel electrode (SCE by electrodeposition technique onto indium tin oxide (ITO coated conducting glass substrates. It was observed that the variation of Fe ion concentration in the electrolyte had a very strong influence on the compositional, surface morphological, and microstructural properties of the Fe-Cu films. An increase in the Fe ion concentration within the plating bath increased the Fe content, consequently Fe : Cu ratio within the films. The crystallographic structure analysis showed that the Fe-Cu films had a mixture of face-centered cubic (fcc Cu and body centered cubic (bcc α-Fe phases. The average crystallite size decreased with the Fe ion concentration. The film electrodeposited from the electrolyte with low Fe ion concentration exhibited a morphology consisting of dendritic structures. However, the film morphology changed from dendritic structure to cauliflower-like structure at high Fe ion concentration. The surface roughness and grain size were found to decrease significantly with increasing Fe ion concentration in the electrolyte. The significant differences observed in the microstructural and morphological properties caused by the change of Fe ion concentration in the electrolyte were ascribed to the change of Fe : Cu ratio within the films.

    A simple and new low pressure ion chromatography combined with flow injection spectrophotometric procedure for determining Fe(II) and Fe(III) was established. It is based on the selective adsorption of low pressure ion chromatography column to Fe(II) and Fe(III), the online reduction reaction of Fe(III) and the reaction of Fe(II) in sodium acetate with phenanthroline, resulting in an intense orange complex with a suitable absorption at 515 nm. Various chemical (such as the concentration of colour reagent, eluant and reductive agent) and instrumental parameters (reaction coil length, reductive coil length and wavelength) were studied and were optimized. Under the optimum conditions calibration graph of Fe(II)/Fe(III) was linear in the Fe(II)/Fe(III) range of 0.040-1.0 mg/L. The detection limit of Fe(III) and Fe(II) was respectively 3.09 and 1.55 μg/L, the relative standard deviation (n = 10) of Fe(II) and Fe(III) 1.89% and 1.90% for 0.5 mg/L of Fe(II) and Fe(III) respectively. About 2.5 samples in 1 h can be analyzed. The interfering effects of various chemical species were studied. The method was successfully applied in the determination of water samples.

    Compressional wave velocity-density (V(P)--ρ) relations of candidate Fe alloys at relevant pressure-temperature conditions of the Earth's core are critically needed to evaluate the composition, seismic signatures, and geodynamics of the planet's remotest region. Specifically, comparison between seismic V(P)--ρ profiles of the core and candidate Fe alloys provides first-order information on the amount and type of potential light elements--including H, C, O, Si, and/or S-needed to compensate the density deficit of the core. To address this issue, here we have surveyed and analyzed the literature results in conjunction with newly measured V(P)--ρ results of hexagonal closest-packed (hcp) Fe and hcp-Fe(0.85)Si(0.15) alloy using in situ high-energy resolution inelastic X-ray scattering and X-ray diffraction. The nature of the Fe-Si alloy where Si is readily soluble in Fe represents an ideal solid-solution case to better understand the light-element alloying effects. Our results show that high temperature significantly decreases the V(P) of hcp-Fe at high pressures, and the Fe-Si alloy exhibits similar high-pressure V(P)--ρ behavior to hcp-Fe via a constant density offset. These V(P)--ρ data at a given temperature can be better described by an empirical power-law function with a concave behavior at higher densities than with a linear approximation. Our new datasets, together with literature results, allow us to build new V(P)--ρ models of Fe alloys in order to determine the chemical composition of the core. Our models show that the V(P)--ρ profile of Fe with 8 wt % Si at 6,000 K matches well with the Preliminary Reference Earth Model of the inner core.

    A diiron dithiolate complex with a pendant phosphine coordinated to one of the iron centers, [(μ-SCH2)2N(CH2C6H4-o-PPh2){Fe2(CO)5}] (1), was prepared and structurally characterized. The pendant phosphine is dissociated together with a CO ligand in the presence of excess PMe3, to afford [(μ-SCH2)2N(CH2C6H4-o-PPh2){Fe(CO)2(PMe3)}2] (2). Redox reactions of 2 and related complexes were studied in detail by in situ IR spectroscopy. A series of new Fe(II)Fe(I) ([3](+) and [6](+)), Fe(II)Fe(II) ([4](2+)), and Fe(I)Fe(I) (5) complexes relevant to Hox, Hox(CO), and Hred states of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase active site were detected. Among these complexes, the molecular structures of the diferrous complex [4](2+) with the internal amine and the pendant phosphine co-coordinated to the same iron center and the triphosphine diiron complex 5 were determined by X-ray crystallography. To make a comparison, the redox reactions of an analogous complex, [(μ-SCH2)2N(CH2C6H5){Fe(CO)2(PMe3)}2] (7), were also investigated by in situ IR spectroscopy in the absence or presence of extrinsic PPh3, which has no influence on the oxidation reaction of 7. The pendant phosphine in the second coordination sphere makes the redox reaction of 2 different from that of its analogue 7.

    Full Text Available Microbial biomineralization sometimes leads to periplasmic encrustation, which is predicted to enhance microorganism preservation in the fossil record. Mineral precipitation within the periplasm is however thought to induce death, as a result of permeability loss preventing nutrient and waste transit across the cell wall. This hypothesis had however never been investigated down to the single cell level. Here, we cultured the nitrate reducing Fe(II oxidizing bacteria Acidovorax sp. strain BoFeN1 that have been previously shown to promote the precipitation of a diversity of Fe minerals (lepidocrocite, goethite, Fe phosphate encrusting the periplasm. We investigated the connection of Fe biomineralization with carbon assimilation at the single cell level, using a combination of electron microscopy and Nano-Secondary Ion Mass Spectrometry (NanoSIMS. Our analyses revealed strong individual heterogeneities of Fe biomineralization. Noteworthy, a small proportion of cells remaining free of any precipitate persisted even at advanced stages of biomineralization. Using pulse chase experiments with 13C-acetate, we provide evidences of individual phenotypic heterogeneities of carbon assimilation, correlated with the level of Fe biomineralization. Whereas non- and moderately encrusted cells were able to assimilate acetate, higher levels of periplasm encrustation prevented any carbon incorporation. Carbon assimilation only depended on the level of Fe encrustation and not on the nature of Fe minerals precipitated in the cell wall. Carbon assimilation decreased exponentially with increasing cell-associated Fe content. Persistence of a small proportion of non-mineralized and metabolically active cells might constitute a strategy of survival in highly ferruginous environments. Eventually, our results suggest that periplasmic Fe biomineralization may provide a signature of individual metabolic status, which could be looked for in the fossil record and in modern

    In-plane magnetic anisotropy and crystal structure of FeCoB layer on Si/NiFe/Ru underlayer were investigated by using X-Ray Diffraction (XRD) measurement. A pole-figure measurement of XRD showed directionally tilted alignment of FeCo crystallites in Si/NiFe/Ru/FeCoB multilayered film with high in-plane anisotropy field H(k) but no directional alignment was found in FeCoB single layered film. The higher H(k) appeared in the Si/NiFe/Ru/FeCoB multilayered configuration with the thicker FeCoB layer. Since Ru crystallites in a multiunderlayer configuration exhibited no directional alignment, the surface structure of underlayer should be no main reason for the directional alignment of FeCo crystallites deposited on it. The dependence of hickness of FeCoB layer in Si/NiFe/Ru/FeCoB film on H(k) indicated that the in-plane magnetic anisotropy is caused by not only the structure of Ru underlayer but also oblique incidence effect of sputtered particles, which is attained in configuration of Facing Targets Sputtering (FTS) system. From these experimental results, remarkably high H(k) of 540 Oe was obtained.

    Institute of Scientific and Technical Information of China (English)

    2001-01-01

    The NiFe/FeMn bilayers with different buffer layers (Ta or Ta/Cu) were prepared by magnetron sputtering.Results show that the exchange coupling field of NiFe/FeMn films with Ta buffer is higher than that of the films with Ta/ Cu buffer. We analysed the reasons by investigating the crystallographic texture, surface roughness and surface segregation of both films, respectively. We found that the decrease of the exchange coupling fields of NiFe/FeMn films with Ta/Cu buffer layers was mainly caused by the Cu surface segregation on NiFe surface.

Para a pesquisa foi empregada a base de dados Scielo, com artigos de 1995 a 2011, utilizando a palavra “Planta Medicinal” como palavra-chave. Foram avaliados 329 artigos, mas somente 265 foram compatíveis à pesquisa. Artigos que não foram desenvolvidos no Brasil; que não utilizaram o termo planta medicinal; ou não citaram plantas foram excluídos das análises. Em cada artigo selecionado foram coletadas as seguintes informações: título do artigo, quantidade de autores, instituições responsáveis pelo estudo, local das instituições, ano de publicação, tipo de estudo (ex.: farmacológico, agropecuário e ecológico e as plantas que foram estudadas. Por meio de análises desses dados foi possível verificar as tendências dos estudos com plantas medicinais no Brasil. Conforme esperado, a maior parte dos artigos avaliados estão voltados para a Farmacologia, com aplicação em diversas áreas da saúde e em segundo lugar a Agropecuária, devido ao interesse em desenvolver produtos a partir de plantas para o controle de pragas. Entretanto, verificou-se o emprego em outras áreas, como a Bioquímica, Botânica, Ecologia, Genética/Molecular e Educação que apesar de serem menos frequentes, são essenciais, pois os estudos com plantas medicinais requerem profissionais de múltiplas áreas. Além da investigação da medicina popular

    Full Text Available For spin crossover (SCO complexes, computation results are reported and confirmed with experiments at multiscale levels of the isolated molecule and extended solid on the one hand and theory on the other hand. The SCO phenomenon which characterizes organometallics based on divalent iron in an octahedral FeN6-like environment with high spin (HS and low spin (LS states involves the LS/HS switching at the cost of small energies provided by temperature, pressure or light, the latter connected with Light-Induced Excited Spin-State Trapping (LIESST process. Characteristic infra red (IR and Raman vibration frequencies are computed within density functional theory (DFT framework. In [Fe(phen2(NCS2] a connection of selected frequencies is established with an ultra-fast light-induced LS → HS photoswitching mechanism. In the extended solid, density of state DOS and electron localization function (ELF are established for both LS and HS forms, leading to characterizion of the compound as an insulator in both spin states with larger gaps for LS configuration, while keeping molecular features in the solid. In [Fe(PM-BiA2(NCS2], by combining DFT and classical molecular dynamics, the properties and the domains of existence of the different phases are obtained by expressing the potential energy surfaces in a short range potential for Fe–N interactions. Applying such Fe–N potentials inserted in a classical force field and carrying out molecular dynamics (MD in so-called “semi-classical MD” calculations, lead to the relative energies of HS/LS configurations of the crystal and to the assessment of the experimental (P, T phase diagram.

    Full Text Available Neste ambiente de grandes incertezas em que as organizações estão inseridas, a correta utilização de um sistema de medição pode significar vantagem competitiva e desempenho. Este ensaio procura esclarecer os limites dos sistemas de medição, verificando se a utilização de metas de resultado é suficiente para que uma empresa tenha um desempenho superior. O objetivo é analisar a teoria das metas sob um olhar crítico, observando os limites da utilização de diversos tipos de metas, até mesmo no serviço público. Buscou-se fazer uma análise das pesquisas dos autores que defendem a utilização de metas para se ter desempenho e, a partir das suas premissas, analisar os estudos dos autores que as criticam, mostrando que elas podem causar, dependendo da situação, sérios danos financeiros e à imagem da organização. Após essa análise, verificou-se que as metas possuem um importante papel no aumento do desempenho da organização, todavia, deve-se ter certo cuidado na sua utilização, pois elas podem levar as pessoas a comportamentos não éticos, à inibição da cooperação e do aprendizado organizacional, entre outros.

    Full Text Available Este texto teve origem em palestra subordinada ao tema "Cenário Nacional da Educação Brasileira e Pós-graduação". Retoma teses do etnólogo Andre Leroi-Gourhan, sobre origem e desenvolvimento das técnicas e dos saberes humanos, confrontando-as com momentos desse processo na educação e na pesquisa que se fez no Brasil, ao longo da história. Aponta-se, desse modo, para as dimensões reduzidas do sistema de ciência e tecnologia aqui produzido, quando confrontado com as necessidades de adaptação ao meio tecnológico mundial, ameaçando de modo permanente a própria adaptação ao meio natural. Investir em saúde, educação, ciência e técnica não é algo que possa ser visto pelo ângulo financeiro: investimentos nestes setores definem, em termos econômicos e antropológicos, a sobrevivência e a expansão bioetnológica de um povo. Sem eles, o que se faz, na verdade, é condenar o coletivo inteiro à morte lenta. Salvo, é claro, os pequenos setores que escapam do inferno, integrando-se em outros coletivos, usando privilégios e tornando-se parte de outros povos. O que podemos fazer? No plano político mais amplo, controle sobre o Executivo, por parte dos outros poderes da República. No plano das universidades, ação dos órgãos colegiados sobre a política da administração, bem como sobre as políticas de financiamento e fomento à pesquisa.

    The effect of plasma nitrogenation on the structural and magnetic properties of Pr2Fe17 and Sm2Fe17 compounds was investigated by Mössbauer spectroscopy, thermomagnetic measurements, optical metallography, and electronic microprobe analysis. Samples were prepared starting from Pr2Fe17 and Sm2Fe17 commercial powders with 20 μm granulometry, submitted to nitrogenation treatment at 400 °C in 10 Torr atmosphere of 80%H2-20%N2 during periods up to 8 h. Our results show the formation of R2Fe17N3 and metallic Fe and indicate the existence of two other phases. The Mössbauer parameters of the latter are characterized by magnetic hyperfine fields (peak values) of 21 (24) and 3 (4) T and isomer shifts of 0.17 and 0.24 (0.24 and 0.29) mm/s for Pr (Sm). Their magnetic-phase transitions were determined to be close to 250 and 90 °C. Our results suggest that these 2:17 phases present stoichiometries close to R2Fe17N8 and R2Fe17N11, respectively.

  13. A cell-free microtiter plate screen for improved [FeFe] hydrogenases.

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    James A Stapleton

    Full Text Available BACKGROUND: [FeFe] hydrogenase enzymes catalyze the production and dissociation of H(2, a potential renewable fuel. Attempts to exploit these catalysts in engineered systems have been hindered by the biotechnologically inconvenient properties of the natural enzymes, including their extreme oxygen sensitivity. Directed evolution has been used to improve the characteristics of a range of natural catalysts, but has been largely unsuccessful for [FeFe] hydrogenases because of a lack of convenient screening platforms. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS: Here we describe an in vitro screening technology for oxygen-tolerant and highly active [FeFe] hydrogenases. Despite the complexity of the protocol, we demonstrate a level of reproducibility that allows moderately improved mutants to be isolated. We have used the platform to identify a mutant of the Chlamydomonas reinhardtii [FeFe] hydrogenase HydA1 with a specific activity approximately 4 times that of the wild-type enzyme. CONCLUSIONS/SIGNIFICANCE: Our results demonstrate the feasibility of using the screen presented here for large-scale efforts to identify improved biocatalysts for energy applications. The system is based on our ability to activate these complex enzymes in E. coli cell extracts, which allows unhindered access to the protein maturation and assay environment.

    The H{sub 2}-evoving [FeFe]-hydrogenase in Clostridium tyrobutyricum JM1 was isolated to elucidate molecular characterization and modular structure of the hydrogenase. Then, homologous overexpression of the hydrogenase gene was for the first time performed to enhance hydrogen production. The hydA open reading frame (ORF) was 1734-bp, encodes 577 amino acids with a predicted molecular mass of 63,970 Da, and presents 80% and 75% identity at the amino acid level with the [FeFe]-hydrogenase genes of Clostridium kluyveri DSM 555 and Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824, respectively. One histidine residue and 19 cysteine residues, known to fasten one [2Fe-2S] cluster, three [4Fe-4S] clusters and one H-cluster, were conserved in hydA of C. tyrobutyricum. A 2327-bp DNA region containing the ORF and the putative promoter region was amplified and subcloned into a pJIR418 shuttle vector. The gene transfer of the recombinant plasmid into C. tyrobutyricum JM1 was performed by a modified electrotransformation method. Homologous overexpression of the [FeFe]-hydrogenase gene resulted in a 1.7-fold and 1.5-fold increase in hydrogenase activity and hydrogen yield concomitant with the shift of metabolic pathway.

    Full Text Available Abstract Background FeFe-hydrogenases are the most active class of H2-producing enzymes known in nature and may have important applications in clean H2 energy production. Many potential uses are currently complicated by a crucial weakness: the active sites of all known FeFe-hydrogenases are irreversibly inactivated by O2. Results We have developed a synthetic metabolic pathway in E. coli that links FeFe-hydrogenase activity to the production of the essential amino acid cysteine. Our design includes a complementary host strain whose endogenous redox pool is insulated from the synthetic metabolic pathway. Host viability on a selective medium requires hydrogenase expression, and moderate O2 levels eliminate growth. This pathway forms the basis for a genetic selection for O2 tolerance. Genetically selected hydrogenases did not show improved stability in O2 and in many cases had lost H2 production activity. The isolated mutations cluster significantly on charged surface residues, suggesting the evolution of binding surfaces that may accelerate hydrogenase electron transfer. Conclusions Rational design can optimize a fully heterologous three-component pathway to provide an essential metabolic flux while remaining insulated from the endogenous redox pool. We have developed a number of convenient in vivo assays to aid in the engineering of synthetic H2 metabolism. Our results also indicate a H2-independent redox activity in three different FeFe-hydrogenases, with implications for the future directed evolution of H2-activating catalysts.

    Three polypyridine ligand-supported multinuclear iron complexes, [Fe5], [Fe7] and [Fe17], were synthesized and their physical properties were investigated. The complexes had triple-stranded helical structures with pseudo threefold symmetry, and were stabilized by varying degrees of intramolecular π-π stacking. The pentanuclear iron complex consisted of two Fe(II) and three Fe(III) ions, supported by three ligands, while the heptanuclear complex comprised four Fe(II) centres, three Fe(III) ions, and six ligands, and the heptadecanuclear complex contained seventeen Fe(III) ions and nine ligands. Electrochemical studies revealed that the pentanuclear and heptanuclear iron complexes showed pseudo-reversible three- and five-step redox behaviours, respectively. Magnetic measurements conducted on the pentanuclear and heptanuclear complexes revealed that antiferromagnetic interactions were operative between neighbouring iron ions through the oxo- and pyrazole-bridges.

    The low temperature magnetic properties of nanopowders of CoFe2O4 and of CoFe2O4/FeCo-FeO with average particle size of about 6 nm were investigated for temperatures down to 5 K and for applied magnetic fields up to 350 kOe. Highly enhanced coercive fields were obtained for the CoFe2O4 nanoparticles. The values of the saturation magnetization MS and of the anisotropy constant K1 were also found to be enhanced for the nanocomposite powder sample. The overall results are discussed in terms of a particle model which takes into account a thin amorphous layer present in the CoFe2O4 particles and due to a FeCo-FeO layer grown during an annealing procedure. Moreover, the temperature dependence of K1 was found to be in good agreement with a model proposed by Tachiki.
