Much success has been achieved with platinum-based chemotherapeutic agents, i.e. through interactions with DNA. The long-term application of Pt complexes is thwarted by issues, leading scientists to examine other metals such as palladium which could exhibit complementary modes of action (given emphasis wherever known). Over the last 10 years several research groups have focused on the application of an eclectic array of palladium complexes (of the type PdX2L2, palladacycles and related structures) as potential anti-cancer agents. This review therefore provides readers with an up to date account of the advances that have taken place over the past several decades. © 2014 The Royal Society of Chemistry. Source

Applied Catalysis A: General | Year: 2014
The present review is mainly dealing with the latest progress on sulfur poisoning of Solid Oxide Fuel Cell anodes, which in particular operate under reforming conditions. In general, sulfur seems to poison the electrochemical interface and at the same time or even faster blocks the catalytically active sites that are responsible for the H/C conversion, leading finally to the cells' degradation. Worldwide research effort has focused on the development of efficient and tolerant anode materials against carbon deposition and/or sulfur poisoning and one viable approach has been through targeted modifications of the traditional Ni-based anode cermets. In this respect, the review comprises a brief description of anode materials that are less prone to carbon deposition, but the main interest is focused on the studied sulfur tolerant cermets. The latter have been classified into four groups, depending on whether the examined anode feed comprises H2S in H2or H/Cs plus H2S fuels, while there is also discrimination between Ni-free and Nibased anode materials. Finally, the main part of the discussion focuses on the published studies regarding the effect of sulfur on the reforming activity and consequently on the electrochemical performance of H/C fueled Ni-based SOFCs. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

A method of improving heat utilization in a thermodynamic cycle, the method comprising heating a working stream in a at least one distillation assembly to produce a rich stream and a lean stream; wherein the distillation assembly comprises a bottom reboiler section, a middle distillation section and a top condenser section; superheating the rich stream in at least one superheater to produce a gaseous working stream; expanding the gaseous working stream in at least one means for expansion to obtain energy in usable form and at least one spent stream; mixing the spent stream and the lean stream to produce a mixed stream; condensing the mixed stream in an absorber-condenser assembly using cooling water to obtain a condensed stream; exchanging heat between the condensed stream and the rich stream to partially condense the rich stream before step b); whereby the condensed stream on heat exchange gives a liquid working stream; exchanging heat between the liquid working stream and the lean stream in at least one heat exchanger before step d) to produce the working stream; and, recycling the working stream to the distillation section of the distillation assembly.

The present invention relates to a composition for external application for improving a skin disease (e.g. psoriasis). The composition contains adenosyl cobalamin (coenzyme B12), optionally in admixture with other cobalamins. The composition can be present in the form of liposomal preparations, which are made of a phospholipid and cholesterol.
