With the aim to develop an ecologically viable catalytic pathway for furfural production without the use of inorganic acids, H3PW12O40, Amberlyst-5 and NKC-9 (macroporous styrene-based sulfonic acid resin) were used as catalysts for producing furfural from xylose, xylan and lignocellulosic biomass in [BMIM]Cl under microwave irradiation at atmospheric pressure. A surprisingly high furfural yield of 93.7% from xylan was obtained by H3PW12O40 at 160°C in 10min. The degradation of furfural affected by single addition of [BMIM]Cl and solid acids was also investigated. The IL could be easily recycled and reused with stable solvent capacity for multiple runs (5×) after the product furfural was extracted with ethyl acetate. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd. Source

In this paper, we prove analytically that the plane-wave Bose-Einstein condensates with spin-orbit coupling are stable in two dimensions at zero temperature. The SOC induced extra breaking of the O(2) symmetry of the ground state makes the goldstone modes more divergent in the infrared limit. But the depletions are still finite, which means the condensates are stable. © 2013 EDP Sciences, SIF, Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. Source

This technical note studies consensus problems of multiple agents with continuous-time second-order dynamics, where each agent can obtain its positions and velocities relative to its neighbors only at sampling instants. It is assumed that the sampling period of each agent is independent of the others' and the interaction topology among agents is time-varying, where the associated direct graphs may not have spanning trees. If the union graph of all direct graphs has a spanning tree, then there exist controller gains and sampling periods such that consensus is reached. Moreover, two approaches are presented to design such controller gains and sampling periods. Simulations are performed to validate the theoretical results. © 2011 IEEE. Source

In this paper, we revisit a priori error analysis of nonconforming finite element methods for the Poisson problem. Based on some techniques developed in the context of the a posteriori error analysis, under two reasonable assumptions on the nonconforming finite element spaces, we prove that, up to some oscillation terms, the consistency error can be bounded by the approximation error. We check these two assumptions for the most used lower order nonconforming finite element methods. Compared with the classical error analysis of the nonconforming finite element method, the a priori analysis herein only needs the H1 regularity of the exact solution. © 2014 Global Science Press.

MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are an important gene regulator, controlling almost all biological and metabolic processes, in both plants and animals. In this study, we investigated the effect of drought and salinity stress on the expression of miRNAs and their targets in cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.). Our results show that the expression change of miRNAs and their targets were dose-dependent and tissue-dependent under salinity and drought conditions. The expression of miRNAs in leaf was down-regulated under higher salinity stress while shows variable patterns in other conditions. The highest fold-changes of miRNAs were miR398 in roots with 28.9 fold down-regulation under 0.25% NaCl treatment and miR395 in leaves with 7.6 fold down-regulation under 1% PEG treatment. The highest up-regulation of miRNA targets was AST in roots with 4.7 fold-change under 2.5% PEG and the gene with highest down-regulation was CUC1 in leaves with 25.6 fold-change under 0.25% NaCl treatment. Among seven miRNA-target pairs we studied, five pairs, miR156-SPL2, miR162-DCL1, miR159-TCP3, miR395-APS1 and miR396-GRF1, show significant regulation relationship in roots and leaves under salinity stress concentration. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.
