This study reports on the exploration of temporal relationships between milk mid-infrared predicted biomarkers and lameness events. Lameness in dairy cows is an issue that can vary greatly in severity and is of concern for both producers and consumers. Metabolic disorders are often associated with lameness. However, lameness can arise weeks or even months after the metabolic disorder, making the detection of causality difficult. We already use mid-infrared technology to predict major milk components, such as fat or protein, during routine milk recording and for milk payment. It was recently shown that this technology can also be used to predict novel biomarkers linked to metabolic disorders in cows, such as oleic acid (18:1 cis-9), β-hydroxybutyrate, acetone, and citrate in milk. We used these novel biomarkers as proxies for metabolic issues. Other studies have explored the possibility of using mid-infrared spectra to predict metabolic diseases and found it (potentially) usable for indicating classes of metabolic problems. We wanted to explore the possible relationship between mid-infrared-based metabolites and lameness over the course of lactation. In total, data were recorded from 6,292 cows on 161 farms in Austria. Lameness data were recorded between March 2014 and March 2015 and consisted of 37,555 records. Mid-infrared data were recorded between July and December 2014 and consisted of 9,152 records. Our approach consisted of fitting preadjustments to the data using fixed effects, computing pair-wise correlations, and finally applying polynomial smoothing of the correlations for a given biomarker at a certain month in lactation and the lameness events scored on severity scale from sound or non-lame (lameness score of 1) to severely lame (lameness score of 5) throughout the lactation. The final correlations between biomarkers and lameness scores were significant, but not high. However, for the results of the present study, we should not look at the correlations in terms of absolute values, but rather as indicators of a relationship through time. When doing so, we can see that metabolic problems occurring in mo 1 and 3 seem more linked to longterm effects on hoof and leg health than those in mo 2. However, the quantity (only 1 pair-wise correlation exceeded 1,000 observations) and the quality (due to limited data, no separation according to more metabolic-related diseases could be done) of the data should be improved.

Aim/Hypothesis: Bone tissue regeneration remains an important challenge in orthopaedic and maxillofacial surgery. The present study in rat was performed to determine if Minocycline could influence the behavior of Deproteinized Bovine Bone Mineral (DBBM) and bioactive glass particles when used as scaffold for Guided Bone Regeneration (GBR). Minocycline is a wide spectrum antibiotic with demonstrated effects on bone formation, bone resorption and connective tissue breakdown. We chose to investigate this molecule in relation with bioactive glasses and DBBM, both important classes of bone grafting materials. Material and methods: Two completely occlusive titanium bone augmentation caps were placed on each side of the sagittal cranial suture of the rat calvaria. One was filled with bioactive glass particles (BioGran-Biomet 3i, Plam Beach, FL, USA) and the second with DBBM particles (Bio-Oss®–Geistlich, Wolhusen, Switzerland). Bone filler particles were mixed with blood, collected from the animal’s tail, and a drop of balanced salt solution in order to acquire a moldable consistency of the particles and a perfectly adapted fill of the regeneration chambers. In Minocycline-Cl group (n=10) bone grafts were additionally placed into a minocycline solution at 0.1 mg/ml prior placement. The study protocol included animal accommodation with water ad libitum, regular rat pellet with artificial light with a night and day cycle. All surgeries were conducted under strict aseptic conditions. For each observation time (4, 8 and 16 weeks) two calvaria were embedded in methyl methacrylate resin and cut in thin serial sections (100-200 µm), grounded and polished to a thickness of 20-40 µm. A Giemsa (Gross & Strunz, 1977), Paragon and a combination of Stevenel’s blue with Van Gieson staining was used for light microscopy. The remaining calvaria were fixed, decalcified in an EDTA solution at 0.2 M (pH 7.4) for 30 days and dehydrated in ascending ethanol series for 96 h. The paraffin embedded blocks were sectioned (5 µm) and either hematoxylin eosin (H&E) or Toluidine blue stained for the histologic analysis. Results: This study has confirmed osteoconductive and osteoinductive response of BioGran. The addition of Minocycline has hardly influenced the result positively. In contact with blood, BioGran underwent a surface modification in form of a calcium phosphate precipitate, quite similar in composition and structure to hydroxyapatite. Cracks in the outer shell were to be recognized and the silica core tended to disappear leaving a calcium phosphate pouch for future bone growth. Likewise, first signs of osteoinduction in the form of ectopic mineralization foci could be observed after just 4 weeks at some distance from BioGran particles. These ossification islets were lined by a layer of osteoblasts for centrifugal expansion. The osteoconductivity and predictability of Bio-Oss®, are well documented. Some studies however found that Bio-Oss® inhibited new bone formation or interfered with new bone generation especially when used as an onlay graft under totally occlusive capsules in a GTR model. Our observations were similar: the major part of the biomaterial particles was embedded in connective tissue. Most of the new bone regenerated were lamellar bone formations in close contact and bonded to the DBBM particles. Islands of spontaneous ossification suggesting some osteoinductive activities could only be observed in Bio-Oss® sections treated with Minocycline. A possible correlation of these centres with the basal skull bone, outside of our observation field, cannot be excluded. Conclusions and clinical implications: The osteoconductive and osteoinductive properties of bioactive glass particles could be confirmed within the limitations of the present study. Minocycline-HCl may be considered as a promising complementary treatment approach and may add some osteoinductive properties to DBBM. Further investigations into the volume of the newly generated bone are needed to refine the present results. [less ▲]

Interconnected macroporous imidazolium-based mono- liths are produced via the modified Radziszewski multicomponent reaction (MCR) applied to triamines under high internal phase emulsion (HIPE) conditions. This straightforward one-pot synthesis combines the efficiency and versatility ofMCRs with the ease of implementation of the emulsion templating polymerization process. The characterization of the chemical structure and morphology of the resulting materials confirms the formation of the expected macroporous poly(ionic liquid)s (PILs) networks. The promising catalytic activity and recyclability of these porous PIL monoliths are illustrated for the transesterification reaction and the decarboxylation of caffeic acid. In these cases, almost complete conversion is reached while benefiting from the advantages associated with a heterogeneous catalyst. [less ▲]

Regenerative medicine using mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) is developped in several musculoskeletal diseases. The concentration of bone marrow or adipose tissue has been the most common therapeutic method used. The large variability of the cell-productions, however, could be a limitation. Recent biological research concerning MSC has unearthed several new aspects. Firstly, a heterogeneity of the MSC was found following the tissue origin and/or the patient's. Then, the characterisation of MSC was improved by using new combinations of cellular membrane markers. Another important step was the discovery of the paracrine activity of MSC. The MSCs are able to produce a lot of growth factors and cytokines, a production of extra cellular vesicles like exosomes arising an intercellular signaling. MSCs were found to have not only a proliferation and differentiation performance to restore the damages of time, but also immunomodulation and anti-inflammation activities. The field of cell-based therapy with MSC is enlarged with newer and more promising methods than bone marrow concentrate. Expansion culture methods of MSC have been developped, as in vitro differentiation in osteoblasts and chondrocytes or cell manipulations by transfection to produce induced pluripotent stem cells or super MSCs able to produce more growth factors or cytokines, or to modify the membrane signaling for improving MSC homing. The translation of these biological developments in human therapy is the key for the MSC future. After pre-clinical tests to verify the safety, controlled trials are needed to define the true place of this regenerative medicine. © 2020 Société Française de Rhumatologie [less ▲]

Mass spectrometry imaging (MSI) is an analytical technique for the unlabeled and multiplex imaging of molecules in biological tissue sections. It therefore enables the spatial and molecular annotation of tissues complementary to histology. It has already been shown that MSI can guide subsequent material isolation technologies such as laser microdissection (LMD) to enable a more in-depth molecular characterization of MSI-highlighted tissue regions. However, with MSI now reaching spatial resolutions at the single-cell scale, there is a need for a precise co-registration between MSI and the LMD. As proof-of-principle, MSI was performed on a breast cancer tissue and segmentation on the lipid data was performed to detect molecularly distinct segments within its tumor areas. After image processing of the segmentation results, the coordinates of the MSI detected segments were passed to the LMD system by three co-registration steps. The errors of each co-registration step were quantified and the total error was found to be less than 13 micrometers. With this link established, MSI data can now accurately guide LMD to excise MSI-defined regions of interest for subsequent extract-based analyses. In our example, the excised tissue material was then subjected to ultrasensitive microproteomics in order to determine predominant molecular mechanisms in each of the MSI highlighted intratumor segments. This work shows how the strengths of MSI, histology, and extract-based omics can be combined to enable a more comprehensive molecular characterization of in situ biological processes. [less ▲]

At the TA18 conference on “Technology Assessment and Normativity”, held in Vienna in June 2018, an equally spontaneous and memorable controversy arose between Armin Grunwald and Pierre Delvenne concerning the roles of neutrality and democracy in technology assessment (TA), its philosophical foundations, and TA’s obligation to be inclusive. How do TA’s obligation to democracy and its operational neutrality relate to each other, where do they interfere, and what are the practical consequences? And what does this imply for TA’s future? Should we shape TA today according to the ideals of a strong democracy that advocates value-oriented solutions while not shying away from conflicts? Or should we rather strive for a fundamental normative orientation toward democracy, which, however, for this very reason follows the neutrality principle in TA practice and does not favor certain pathways? As editors of TATuP’s special issue on normativity in technology assessment, our intention has been to make this debate accessible to a wider readership by confronting the two researchers once more with the core issues of their dispute.

The performance of lithium‐ and sodium‐ion batteries relies notably on the accessibility to carbon electrodes of controllable porous structure and chemical composition. This work reports a facile synthesis of well‐defined N‐doped porous carbons (NPCs) using a poly(ionic liquid) (PIL) as precursor, and graphene oxide (GO)‐stabilized poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) nanoparticles as sacrificial template. The GO‐stabilized PMMA nanoparticles are first prepared and then decorated by a thin PIL coating before carbonization. The resulting NPCs reach a satisfactory specific surface area of up to 561 m2 g−1 and a hierarchically meso‐ and macroporous structure while keeping a nitrogen content of 2.6 wt%. Such NPCs deliver a high reversible charge/discharge capacity of 1013 mA h g−1 over 200 cycles at 0.4 A g−1 for lithium‐ion batteries, and show a good capacity of 204 mA h g−1 over 100 cycles at 0.1 A g−1 for sodium‐ion batteries.

Due to their great modularity, ease of implementation, and atom economy, multicomponent reactions (MCRs) are becoming increasingly popular macromolecular engineering tools. In this context, MCRs suitable in polymer synthesis are eagerly searched for. This work demonstrates the potential of the Ugi-three component reaction (Ugi-3CR) for the design of polymers and, in particular, of poly(α-amino amide)s. A series of polymers containing amino and amido groups within their backbone were obtained through a one-pot process by reacting aliphatic or aromatic diamines, diisocyanides, and aldehydes. The impact of temperature, concentration, catalyst loading, and substrates on polymerization efficiency is discussed. A preliminary study on the thermal properties and the solution behavior of these poly(α-amino amide)s was carried out. An aliphatic-rich derivative notably showed some pH-responsiveness in water via protonation−deprotonation of its amino groups. [less ▲]

With intermittent vitamin D supplementation, serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD)levels may remain stable only if the dosing interval is shorter than 3 months, the ideal perhaps being about 1 month. Recent data support moderate daily vitamin D doses instead of high intermittent doses, notably in elderly patients prone to falls. The level of evidence is low, however, with no head-to-head comparisons of clinical outcomes such as fractures and falls in groups given identical dosages daily versus intermittently. A challenge to daily vitamin D supplementation in France is the absence of a suitable pharmaceutical formulation. In addition, daily dosing carries a high risk of poor adherence. Until suitable vitamin D3 formulations such as tablets or soft capsules each containing 1000 or 1500 IU become available, we suggest intermittent supplementation according to 2011 GRIO guidelines. Among the available dosages, the lowest should be preferred, with the shortest possible interval, e.g., 50,000 IU monthly rather than 100,000 every two months. © 2019 Société française de rhumatologie [less ▲]

As unanimously claimed within the rare disease community, cooperation between all stakeholders is a necessity in order to tackle these diseases and improve the difficult situations faced by patients and families. Public authorities, health professionals, scientists, industrials, or obviously patients and relatives' associations, have an active part to play in the collective projects that are currently being developed worldwide. However, putting cooperation into practice does not always go unhindered. Drawing on a qualitative research in social sciences, this poster presented some drivers and effects of cooperation in the field of rare diseases in Belgium and, more generally, in Europe. It highlighted some meaningful points of agreement and tension such as the degree of adequacy between international guidelines and national constraints, the confrontation between professional and experiential points of view, or the multiple meanings and uses of the "rare diseases" category. To conclude, the poster stated the value of multidisciplinary perspectives and mutual exchanges between social scientists and stakeholders, for the joint understanding of, and cooperation in, the lively field of rare diseases.

n-tetrabutyl ammonium organic salts are used for the first time as catalysts for the coupling of CO2 with 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-ol to form α-methylene cyclic carbonate. The final yields could reach 98% in less than 10 hours at 353K and 3MPa under solvent free conditions. A particular synergistic effect between the cation and the anion of the organocatalyst is demonstrated through catalyst screening. Online kinetic studies by ATR-IR spectroscopy correlated to DFT calculations reveal a compelling evolution of the solvation of the catalyst during the reaction that provide an understanding of the underlying reason for the observed unique kinetics and selectivity. Such in-depth fundamental mechanistic and kinetic studies enable determining and comprehending the key parameters favouring the design of novel highly active and selective catalysts for the valorisation [less ▲]

An unprecedented level of control for the radical polymerization of vinylidene fluoride (VDF), yielding well-defined PVDF (up to 14,500 g/mol) with low dispersity (≤1.32), was achieved using organometallic mediated radical polymerization (OMRP) with an organocobalt compound as initiator. The high chain-end fidelity was demonstrated by the synthesis of PVDF- and PVAc-containing di-and tri-block copolymers. DFT calculations rationalize the efficient reactivation of both head and tail chain end dormant species. [less ▲]

Phosphorus (P) is an important macronutrient affecting the growth and yield of all crop plants. Plants absorb P from the soil solution as inorganic phosphate (Pi). More than 70% of the arable land is deficient of Pi which demands the supply of an external source of synthetic P fertilizers to improve the yields. The P fertilizers are manufactured from non-renewable rock phosphate reserves which are expected to be exhausted within the next 100-200 years. This poses a great threat to food security since it is very difficult to meet the food production caused by increasing world population without the supply of an adequate P fertilizer. Several efforts have been made in the past decade to understand the mechanism of Pi uptake and its redistribution in plants. In this mini-review, we discuss the details on possible strategies to combat the crisis caused by loss of phosphate rock reserves and to improve the crop yield without much dependency on external P fertilizer. Approaches such as application of functional genomics studies to manipulate the expression levels of key transcription factors and genes involved in low Pi stress tolerance, molecular marker-assisted breeding to develop new varieties with improved yields under Pi-deficient soils and to recapture the Pi released in wastewaters for recycling back to the farm lands, will help improve the crop production without depending much on non-renewable P fertilizers and will also aid for the sustainable food production. © 2018 S.

Osteoarthritis is a painful degenerative disease, sometimes responsible for the premature ending of the careers of sporting horses. In humans, meniscal neurogenesis has been suggested to contribute to pain in osteoarthritis. To the best of our knowledge, no study on this subject has been performed in equine species. The aim of this report was to compare the density of the nociceptive and sympathetic nerves in the menisci of two 11- and 13-year-old mares, one presenting a “low-chondropathy grade” in its stifle and the other a “high-chondropathy grade”. The cranial horns of the medial menisci, a commonly reported site of equine meniscal injuries, were harvested after a maximum of 48 hours postmortem. A macroscopic and microscopic grading system was established using a modified Pauli score. Nociceptive fibers were highlighted by immunohistochemical staining with an antibody against Substance P (SP) and postganglionic sympathetic fibers with an antibody against tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). Descriptive statistics were calculated, and a nonparametric statistical test was used to analyze the data. The meniscus from the “high-chondropathy horse (HCH)” showed a higher density and frequency of postganglionic sympathetic nerves compared with the meniscus of the “low-chondropathy horse (LCH)”. No difference was observed regarding nociceptive nerves. This report shows possible meniscal sympathetic efferent-mediated pain in a “highly chondropathic horse”. Although these results cannot be extended to the equine population as a whole because of the small sample size, they are nevertheless interesting as they provide new information regarding the possible etiology of the pain in equine stifle osteoarthritis.

Since Romania’s accession to the European Union, resident EU citizens enjoy the right to vote in and stand for local elections and European Parliament (EP) elections held in Romania. Due to the fact that non-resident nationals vastly outnumber EU citizens residing in Romania, the enfranchisement of Romanians abroad is, however, a much more salient issue in Romania. Non-resident nationals may vote in national and EP elections, but cannot stand as candidates if they are registered with the domicile abroad. The turnout of non-citizen resident and non-resident citizens in elections held in Romania is overall quite low. Possible facilitators would be to simplify the voting and registration procedure and to introduce more awareness raising campaigns specifically targeting resident EU citizens and Romanians abroad.

In Belgium, EU citizens and third-country nationals have the right to vote in local elections. Third-country nationals only gain this right after five years of continuous residence in Belgium. EU citizens also enjoy passive electoral rights in local elections. Furthermore, EU citizens have the right to vote in and stand for the European Parliament (EP) elections held in Belgium. The electoral rights for nonresident Belgian citizens are more restrictive. Non-resident citizens have the right to vote, but not to stand for national legislative elections. Belgian citizens also have the right to vote for EP elections, whether they reside in another EU Member State or a third country, but only those residing in other EU Member States can stand as candidates for these elections. Once registered, all voters are obliged to vote in Belgium. Despite the dissemination efforts made by different institutions and civil society organizations for past elections in Belgium, a key difficulty that voters still face is the lack of information about the Belgian registration procedures and the political process more generally. Possible facilitators to encourage the political participation of non-citizen residents would be to formalise information dissemination strategies and communicate with new residents in different languages.

Introduction Parathyroid carcinoma (PCa) is a rare presentation of primary hyperparathyroidism (PHPT), accounting for less than 1 % of cases. Differentiating parathyroid cancer from adenoma is clinically challenging. Rubin et al (2008) et al. suggested that urinary hCG might be a marker of disease progression in PCa. In this study, we aimed to investigate whether the hCG+β kit from Roche Diagnostics could distinguish PCa patients from PHPT. Material and methods We studied a series of 8 patients suffering from advanced PCa, referred to the CHU de Liege. A control group of 20 PHPT patients was used as comparative. hCG+β kit on Cobas (Roche Diagnostics) uses 2 monoclonal antibodies that recognize holo-hCG, nicked hCG, β-core fragment and free β-subunit. Limits of hCG detection and quantification are <0.1 and <0.6 mUI/mL. In non pregnant and postmenopausal women and in men, hCG (p95) is <1 (5.3), <7 mUI/mL (8.3) and <2 (2.6) mUI/mL, respectively. Results. The 8 PCa patients (3 women) presented high serum hCG values at: 1.29, 3.46, 5.7, 24.2, 31.2, 34.1, 36.5 and 164 mUI/mL. Values of 1.29 and 3.46 were obtained in 2 postmenopausal women. The lowest value was presented by the only still alive patient. There was a significant correlation (r=0.786; ρ <0.05) between hCG and PTH and a borderline correlation (r=0.750; ρ =0.05) between hCG and calcium concentrations. All PHP patients presented undetectable hCG values. Conclusions These results suggest that serum hCG might have the potential to discriminate between parathyroid adenomas and carcinomas, with a sensibility of 75% (6/8) and a specificity of 100% (0/20). The only patient still alive presented the lowest hCG values. If hCG could be predictive of PCa survival needs to be studied in a larger series of patients. [less ▲]

Introduction Performance of people undergoing critical tasks (like driving) may be impaired completely by the lowering of their vigilance level, due to sleep deprivation for instance. This reduction of performance may be measured by metrics computed from the reaction times (RT) recorded during a 10min Psychomotor Vigilance Test (PVT). Here, we analyze and compare the sensitivity to sleep deprivation and the subject dependent variability of the PVT metrics performance, with a special emphasis on the time interval sizes. Materials and Methods Individuals (22 volunteers; 11 males, 11 females, mean 22.2y., range 19-34 years) follow an uninterrupted 28h sleep deprivation standard PVT protocol during which they achieved two groups of three PVT sessions (in different conditions). The first PVT of each group is in Non-SDP condition (9h30 and 10h30 Day 1) and the second and third PVT of each group are in SDP condition (2h30, 3h30, 10h30 and 11h30 day 2). The subjects fill a sleep journal during the week before the experiment. We checked that they had a normal sleep-wake cycle with no sleep deprivation, jet-lag or shift work and no medication. During the PVT of the first group, the subjects were wearing the glasses of the Phasya’s Drowsimeter. We compute the usual PVT metrics; meanRT, meanRS (Reaction Speed) and LN500 (500ms lapses number). We also compute LNQ25 (adaptive lapses number computed with a subject dependent threshold) and ELN (Expected Lapse Number, computed from a subject-dependent estimation of the lapse probability). Results We use the “Effect Size” (ES, ratio of the mean by the standard deviation of the difference of metrics in the SDP and Non-SDP conditions) to assess the sensitivity to sleep deprivation. For the 10min (resp. 1min, 3min) interval, the ES of LNQ25 and ELN are respectively 1.38 (resp. 0.95, 1.22) and 1.35 (resp. 0.85, 1.14), the ES of meanRS, meanRT and LN500 are 1.23 (resp. 0.91, 1.09), 0.81 (resp. 0.54, 0.68) and 0.85 (resp. 0.63, 0.77). We classify the intervals on which metrics are computed as SDP or non-SDP. We use a fixed threshold for the metrics, independent of the subject. In the ROC curves, the TPR (for a FPR of 10%) assesses the quality of the classification, and then also the subject independence. For the 10min (resp. 1min, 3min) interval, the TPR of LNQ25 and ELN are respectively 0.86 (resp. 0.56, 0.75) and 0.83 (resp. 0.58, 0.75), the TPR of meanRS, meanRT and LN500 are 0.42 (resp. 0.38, 0.41), 0.40 (resp. 0.39, 0.40) and 0.42 (resp. 0.24, 0.30). Conclusions We demonstrate that LNQ25 and ELN enable a quite good classification of the SDP condition for time intervals greater than or equal to 3min, independently of the subject. On the other hand, these metrics provide also a good sensitivity to sleep deprivation. They outperform the usual metrics for both criteria. For time intervals below 3min, the performances degrade first progressively and then much more quickly below 1min. [less ▲]

There is an increasing interest in the specific physicochemical properties of gradient copolymers at interfaces. In this work, the phase behavior and interfacial properties of amphiphilic gradient copolymers at the water/CO2 interface are explored and compared to that of diblock copolymer counterparts. It is observed that spontaneous amphiphilic block-like gradient copolymers made of N,N-dimethylacrylamide, vinyl pivalate, and vinyl acetate exhibit slightly lower cloud point pressures in supercritical carbon dioxide (scCO2) than the corresponding diblock copolymers. Much more pronounced differences are established at the water/scCO2 interface, with larger critical aggregation concentration (CAC), much faster adsorption kinetics and equilibration, and lower surface tension for gradient copolymers. RAFT/MADIX polymerization allows the control of molar mass, composition, and microstructure of the copolymers of the study. These findings shed light on how microstructural control in amphiphilic copolymers can give access to a new range of macromolecular emulsifiers for CO2 media with improved properties. [less ▲]

Introduction: Although fibromyalgia syndrome (SFM) affects 2–4 percent of adults, research has not identified a preferred therapeutic option for patients worldwide yet. Based on recent findings, it can be expected that whole body cryotherapy can improve health-reported quality of life by alleviating the symptoms of musculoskeletal pain and fatigue. Objective: Our aim was to determine whether whole body cryotherapy only can result in improved perceived health and quality of life in fibromyalgia patients. Methods: 24 patients with fibromyalgia diagnosis were randomized into 2 groups (n= 11 in the whole body cryotherapy group, n=13 in the control group). In the whole body cryotherapy group, 10 sessions of whole body cryotherapy were performed (in addition to usual care) in a standard cryotherapy room over a duration of 8 days. Subjects in the control group did not change anything in their everyday activities. Quality of life was assessed just before and one month after treatment. Results: Compared with the control group, patients in the whole body cryotherapy group reported significantly improved for health-reported quality of life. These effects lasted for at least one month following intervention. Conclusion: Based on these findings, whole body cryotherapy can be recommended as an effective clinically adjuvant approach in the improvement of health-related quality of life in fibromyalgia patients.

Redox-active catechols are bioinspired precursors for ortho-quinones that are characterized by higher discharge potentials than para-quinones, the latter being extensively used as organic cathode materials for lithium ion batteries (LIBs). Here, this study demonstrates that the rational molecular design of copolymers bearing catechol- and Li+ ion-conducting anionic pendants endow redox-active polymers (RAPs) with ultrarobust electrochemical energy storage features when combined to carbon nanotubes as a flexible, binder-, and metal current collector-free buckypaper electrode. The importance of the structure and functionality of the RAPs on the battery performances in LIBs is discussed. The structure-optimized RAPs can store high-capacities of 360 mA h g−1 at 5C and 320 mA h g−1 at 30C in LIBs. The high ion and electron mobilities within the buckypaper also enable to register 96 mA h g−1 (24% capacity retention) at an extreme C-rate of 600C (6 s for total discharge). Moreover, excellent cyclability is noted with a capacity retention of 98% over 3400 cycles at 30C. The high capacity, superior active-material utilization, ultralong cyclability, and excellent rate performances of RAPs-based electrode clearly rival most of the state-of-the-art Li+ ion organic cathodes, and opens up new horizons for large-scalable fabrication of electrode materials for ultrarobust Li storage.

Poly(ionic liquid)s (PILs) have attracted considerable attention as innovative single-ion solid polyelectrolytes (SPEs) in substitution to the more conventional electrolytes for a variety of electrochemical devices. Herein, we report the precise synthesis, characterization, and use as single-ion SPEs of a novel double PIL-based amphiphilic diblock copolymer (BCP), i.e., where all monomer units are of N-vinyl-imidazolium type, with triethylene glycol pendant groups in the first block and a statistical distribution of N-vinyl-3-ethyl- and N-vinyl-3-perfluorooctyl-imidazolium bromides in the second block. BCP synthesis is achieved directly in water by a one-pot process, by cobalt-mediated radical polymerization-induced self-assembly (CMR-PISA). A subsequent anion exchange reaction substituting bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide (Tf2N-) for bromide (Br-) counter-anions leads to PIL BCPs with two different lengths of the first block. They demonstrate ionic conductivity σDC = 1-3 × 10-7 S cm-1, as determined by broadband dielectric spectroscopy at 30 °C (under anhydrous conditions), and exhibit wide electrochemical stability (up to 4.8 V versus Li+/Li) and form free-standing films with mechanical properties suited for SPE applications (Young's modulus = 3.8 MPa, elongation at break of 250%) as determined by stress/strain experiments. © 2017 American Chemical Society.

A chemically cross-linked but remarkably (re)processable shape-memory polymer (SMP) is designed by cross-linking poly(ε -caprolactone) (PCL) stars via the efficient triazolinedione click chemistry, based on the very fast and reversible Alder– ene reaction of 1,2,4-triazoline-3,5-dione (TAD) with indole compounds. Typically, a six-arm star-shaped PCL function- alized by indole moieties at the chain ends is melt-blended with a bisfunctional TAD, directly resulting in a cross-linked PCL-based SMP without the need of post-curing treatment. As demonstrated by the stress relaxation measurement, the labile character of the TAD–indole adducts under stress allows for the solid-state plasticity reprocessing of the permanent shape at will by compression molding of the raw cross-linked material, while keeping excellent shape-memory properties.

The thermochemical method called “biomass gasification” is generating emphatic interest for the production of bio-Syngas (CO+H2) since this process presents the advantage of being renewable without emitting CO2. However, in practical applications, there are still some technical problems due to high concentration of tars in the outlet gas, which can condensate and clog the pipes. Previous studies have highlighted the fact that the tar elimination via catalytic reforming seem to be the more practical and economical solution. Catalysts were synthesized by an aqueous sol-gel process to develop γ-Al2O3 doped with 10wt.% of nickel and 2 wt.% of a second dopant (Co, Cu, Fe, Mn, Mo). Before their adding in AlOOH sol, metallic dopants were complexed with (OCH3)3-Si-(CH2)3-NH-(CH2)2-NH2 (EDAS) to increase their dispersion by cogelation between EDAS and AlOOH clusters. All the samples were tested for toluene reforming. [less ▲]

Eosinophils are typically considered to be specialized effector cells that are recruited to the tissues as a result of T helper type 2 (Th2) cell responses associated with helminth infections or allergic diseases such as asthma. Once at the site of injury, eosinophils release their cytotoxic granule proteins as well as preformed cytokines and lipid mediators, contributing to parasite destruction but also to exacerbation of inflammation and tissue damage. Accumulating evidence indicates that, besides their roles in Th2 responses, eosinophils also regulate homeostatic processes at steady state, thereby challenging the exclusive paradigm of the eosinophil as a destructive and inflammatory cell. Indeed, under baseline conditions, eosinophils rapidly leave the bloodstream to enter tissues, mainly the gastrointestinal tract, lungs, adipose tissue, thymus, uterus, and mammary glands, where they regulate a variety of important biological functions, such as immunoregulation, control of glucose homeostasis, protection against obesity, regulation of mammary gland development, and preparation of the uterus for pregnancy. This article provides an overview of the characteristics and functions of these homeostatic eosinophils. [less ▲]

La Perspective Temporelle Equilibrée fait référence à une disposition individuelle caractérisée par le fait de se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente. Nous avons développé la version française d’une échelle initialement conçue en anglais, évaluant cette orientation temporelle : la “Balanced Time Perspective Scale” (Webster, 2011). Une étude en ligne a permis de recueillir les données de 622 participants francophones issus de la population générale (Barsics et al., 2017). Les résultats indiquent que la version française réplique la structure en deux facteurs du questionnaire original et plaident en faveur d’une bonne validité de construit. De surcroît, les résultats montrent qu’une tendance importante à se projeter mentalement dans le futur et dans le passé de manière positive et fréquente est associée à la réévaluation cognitive, une stratégie de régulation émotionnelle. En somme, ce questionnaire permet d’évaluer la perspective temporelle, qui est ici envisagée en tant qu’importante ressource pour le Self, et ce, en étroite relation avec les capacités de régulation émotionnelle.
