Perspective: common errors in dose–response analysis and how to avoid them

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Eshagh Keshtkar, Per Kudsk, Mohsen B Mesgaran

Abstract Dose–response experiments are conducted to determine the toxicity of chemicals on organisms. The relationship between dose and response is described by different statistical models. The four‐parameter log‐logistic model is widely used in pesticide sciences to derive biologically relevant parameters such as ED50 and resistance index (RI). However, there are some common errors associated with the calculation of ED50 and RI that can lead to erroneous conclusions. Here we discuss five...

Prognostic value of liver and kidney function parameters and their correlation with the ratio of urine‐to‐plasma paraquat in patients with paraquat poisoning

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Shuangyang Zhang, Shuai Song, Xuemei Luo, Jianfeng Liu, Mouze Liu, Wenqun Li, Ting Cao, Nana Li, Cuirong Zeng, Bikui Zhang, Hualin Cai

Abstract Acute paraquat poisoning resulting from multiple organ failure usually has a high mortality rate. Liver and kidney, as the key oranges of paraquat detoxification and elimination, their injuries may suppress toxin excretion and enhance the toxicity of paraquat in other organs and worsen the prognosis. Therefore, we intended to explore the prognostic value of liver and kidney function parameters, and further evaluate their correlation with a more stable index urine‐to‐plasma paraquat...

Comparative study of rapid ATP bioluminescence assay and conventional plate count method for development of rapid disinfecting activity test

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Masako Ishimaru, Hideyuki Noda, Erino Matsumoto, Hiroyuki Koshi, Hideyuki Otake

Abstract Antimicrobial activity is tested when developing disinfectants, pharmaceutical products, cosmetics, and many other consumer products. However, the plate count method, the conventional way to count the number of microorganisms, needs several days of culture. Consequently, a means of rapid microbial detection is strongly desired to replace this method. We have already developed a rapid and sensitive microbial adenosine triphosphate (ATP) detection system utilizing ATP bioluminescence,...

Rheological and microstructural characterization of wheat dough formulated with konjac glucomannan

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Kexin Meng, Haiyan Gao, Jie Zeng, Jingxiang Zhao, Yueqi Qin, Guanglei Li, Tongchao Su

Abstract BACKGROUND This work aimed to investigate the effects of different levels of konjac glucomannan (KGM) on the thermomechanical and pasting properties, water distribution, gelatinization, texture, and microstructural characteristics of wheat flour and dough. RESULTS The thermomechanical properties assessed with a Mixolab showed that KGM could increase the water absorption and degree of softening and decrease the stability time of wheat dough. In addition, wheat flour starch with KGM...

Synthesis of blue fluorescent carbon dots and their application in detecting mercury and iodine based on “off–on” mode

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Xiaoliang Hao, Shujuan Dai, Jing Wang, Zhigang Fang

Abstract In this study, a type of blue‐emission fluorescent carbon dot was synthesized using malic acid, urea, and water. This material demonstrates strong stability to heat, ionic strength, and time. It was found that mercury ions can quench the blue fluorescence of the material, and using iodine ions, the fluorescence can be recovered. Hence, we designed an “off–on” mode to detect mercury and iodine ions using the carbon dots. The results showed that this material exhibits good selectivity...

Multiwalled carbon nanotubes/guanidine/Ni (II): A new and effective organometallic catalyst for the green synthesis of pyrazolopyranopyrimidines

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Hakimeh Saeidiroshan, Leila Moradi

In this research, we report the first example of the use of multiwalled carbon nanotubes/guanidine/Ni (II) as a new and effective catalyst. The supported catalyst was prepared through a new method and characterized by Fourier transform infrared, scanning electron microscopy, energy‐dispersive spectroscopy, inductively coupled plasma, thermogravimetric analysis, ultraviolet diffuse reflectance spectroscopy, and transmission electron microscopy. Obtained catalyst was used for green and efficient...

Responses of sweet pepper (Capsicum annum L.) cultivated in a closed hydroponic system to variable calcium concentrations in the nutrient solution

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Andreas Ropokis, Georgia Ntatsi, Youssef Rouphael, Anastasios Kotsiras, Constantinos Kittas, Nikolaos Katsoulas, Dimitrios Savvas

Abstract BACKGROUND The use of water containing calcium bicarbonate (Ca(HCO3)2) at excessively high concentrations in closed hydroponic crops can cause calcium ion (Ca2+) accumulation in the recycled nutrient solution (NS) and concomitantly negatively affect yield and product quality. The aim of the study was to determine maximum Ca2+ concentrations that do not harm the crop and to simulate the pattern of Ca2+ accumulation when the Ca2+ concentration in the irrigation water, and concomitantly...

Effects of high oil viscosity on oil‐gas downward flow in deviated pipes. Part 1: Experimental setup and flow pattern transitions

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Gabriel Soto‐Cortes, Eduardo Pereyra, Cem Sarica, Fabian Rivera‐Trejo, Carlos Torres

Abstract This work provides new experimental data on high viscosity oil‐gas flow. A set of 170 downward flow experiments were carried out using a mixture of air and mineral oil (213 mPa · s, 50.8 mm internal diameter, 21.5 m long) for five different elevations: −45°, −60°, −70°, −80°, and −85°. Superficial liquid and gas velocities varied from 0.05 m/s to 0.7 m/s and 0.7 m/s to 7 m/s, respectively. Flow pattern transitions were identified and analyzed. The results helped to evaluate the...

Effect of Ag2S nanoparticles on optical, photophysical, and electrical properties of P3HT thin films

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Mohd Taukeer Khan, Abdullah Almohammedi, Mohd Shkir, Salman Walid Aboud

Abstract In the present work, optical, electrical, and photophysical properties of poly(3‐hexylthiophen)/silver sulphide (P3HT/Ag2S) nanocomposites thin films were investigated. New amorphous dispersion formula was used to fit the experimental ellipsometer data and it was observed that the both refractive index (n) and absorption index (k) increased for hybrid films compared with pure P3HT film. The photophysical properties of fabricated films were examined by recording the photoluminescence...

The diagnostic tools for viable but nonculturable pathogens in the food industry: Current status and future prospects

Published: 23 January 2021

Author(s): Tian Ding, Donghong Liu, Xihong Zhao, Xinyu Liao, Rui Gao

Abstract Viable but nonculturable (VBNC) microorganisms have been recognized as pathogenic contaminants in foods and environments. The failure of VBNC cells to form the visible colonies hinders the ability to use conventional media for their detection. Efficient and rapid detection of pathogens in the VBNC state is a prerequisite to ensure the food safety and public health. Despite their nonculturability, VBNC cells have distinct characteristics, such as morphology, metabolism, chemical...
