The rearrangement process during liquid phase sintering has been generally accepted that driven by the capillary forces between solid grains embedded in liquid. This paper outlines a computer-based method for three-dimensional computer simulation of rearrangement during liquid phase sintering. The theoretical models dealing with the fundamental interaction forces that exist between grains attached by liquid bridges will be outlined and the development from these pair-wise interactions to multi-grain models will be described. © 2011 Ceramic Society of Japan.

A pathogenic fungus, Fusarium sporotrichioides Sherb., was isolated from Hypericum barbatum Jacq. The volatile compounds of broth and mycelium were analyzed using GC-MS and three cyclodidepsipeptides (dioxomorpholines), 3,6-di(propan-2-yl)-4-methyl-morpholine-2,5-dione, 3-(2-methylpropyl)-6-(propan- 2-yl)-4-methyl-morpholine-2,5-dione and 3-(butan-2-yl)-6-(propan-2-yl)-4-methyl- morpholine-2,5-dione, were found for the first time in the natural products. The structures of the compounds were confirmed by comparison of the analytical data for the natural products with samples obtained via synthetic methods. The conformational features and vibrational spectra of the three cyclodidepsipeptides were characterized by density functional theory (DFT) calculations and IR spectroscopy. The cyclic hexadepsipeptide enniatin B was identified by a LC-MS/MS analysis of the non-volatile products of broth and mycelium. The above-mentioned three cyclodidepsipeptides are probably synthesized using similar biosynthetic ways to enniatin B involving a nonribosomal mechanism. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs-CMD) were synthesized from aqueous solution of silver nitrate (AgNO3) and carboxymethyl dextrane (CMD) in mole ratio 1:1 and 1:2. The characterization of AgNPs-CMD was performed by ultraviolet-visible (UV-VIS) spectroscopy, gel permeation chromatography (GPC), scanning electron microscope (SEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and antimicrobial activity. The formation of AgNPs-CMD was screened by color changes of the reaction mixture to yellow, by measuring the surface plasmon resonance absorption peak in UV-VIS region at 420 nm. The GPC chromatography measurement confirmed the formation of AgNPs-CMD. The SEM microscopy was used for size and shape of AgNPs-CMD nanoparticles determination. The presence of elemental silver and crystalline structure of AgNPs-CMD were confirmed by XRD analyses. The possible functional group of CMD responsible for the reduction and stabilization of AgNPs were determinated by FT-IR spectroscopy. The AgNPs-CMD showed strong antibacterial activity against Bacillus lutea, Bacillus aureus, Bacillus cereus, Enterococus fecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae and antifungal activity against Aspergillus spp., Penicillum spp., and Candida albicans. © 2014 Elsevier B.V.
