  • Anti-scaling performances of different aged landfill leachates on PPR and ABS pipe materials. [Journal Article]
    Water Sci Technol. 2023 Jan; 87(2):366-380.Zhao R, Chen J, … Yang H
  • Landfill leachate, because of its complex components, may cause pipe clogging during its collection and transportation, and pose a threat to the environment. This study considers two typical drainage pipe materials, i.e., polypropylene-random (PPR) and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS), to discriminate their anti-scaling performances through a landfill leachate immersion experiment. The resul…
  • Nanoscale Analysis of the Structure and Composition of Biogenic Calcite Reveals the Biomineral Growth Pattern. [Journal Article]
    ACS Nano. 2023 Jan 25 [Online ahead of print]de Frutos M, Rodríguez-Navarro AB, … Checa AG
  • The vast majority of calcium carbonate biocrystals differ from inorganic crystals in that they display a patent nanoroughness consisting of lumps of crystalline material (calcite/aragonite) surrounded by amorphous pellicles. Scanning transmission electron microscopy coupled with electron energy loss spectroscopy (STEM-EELS) was used to map the calcite secreted by a barnacle chemically and structu…
  • Attenuation of Pb and Sb in shooting range soils by Fe amendments. [Journal Article]
    Chemosphere. 2023 Jan 21 [Online ahead of print]Barker AJ, Douglas TA, … Trainor TP
  • Lead (Pb) and antimony (Sb) contamination pose a major environmental risk at firing ranges and threaten land sustainability. Methods for the stabilization of metal (loid) contaminants are necessary to prevent off-site migration of metals in surface and ground water or from soil erosion. In the present study, two remediation treatments (ferric chloride/calcium carbonate and nanoscale zero-valent i…
  • 3D Printed Gas Distributor for Enhanced Production of CaCO3 via Bubbling Carbonation. [Journal Article]
    ACS Omega. 2023 Jan 17; 8(2):2398-2405.Wu KL, Li X, … Liu CJ
  • Bubbling carbonation is the most widely used method for production of CaCO3. A structure-controllable preparation of calcium carbonate with homogeneous crystallinity and narrow particle size distribution is generally required. In this work, a gas distributor is designed and fabricated by light-curing three-dimensional (3D) printing technology to optimize the pore size and distribution of the dist…
  • The Science Behind Nefertiti's Beauty: A Plastic Surgeon's Analysis. [Journal Article]
    Indian J Plast Surg. 2022 Dec; 55(4):357-363.Chauhan N
  • Introduction The famous stucco limestone coated "Bust of Nefertiti" housed in the Neues Museum, Germany dated 1,345 BC is an icon of beauty. Sculpted around three millennia ago by Thutmose, the bust still emits a charm that leaves its audience spellbound. However, no one, to the best of author's knowledge, has analyzed this sculpture or its photographs objectively to determine if there is any sci…
  • Alkali-Activated Binary Binders with Carbonate-Rich Illitic Clay. [Journal Article]
    Polymers (Basel). 2023 Jan 10; 15(2)D'Elia A, Clausi M, … Pinto D
  • This work deals with the investigation of alkaline binders obtained from binary mixtures of carbonate-rich illitic clay from deposits in southern Italy and two industrial by-products with very different total composition and calcium content, i.e., blast furnace slag and type F fly ash, respectively. To improve the reactivity, the selected clay was ground in a ball miller and heated to 700 °C. The…
  • Bio-Stimulated Surface Healing of Historical and Compatible Conservation Mortars. [Journal Article]
    Materials (Basel). 2023 Jan 09; 16(2)Vučetić S, Čjepa D, … Ranogajec J
  • The main focus of this research was the bio-stimulated healing of cracks in lime mortar samples (historical and newly designed). The investigation started from comprehensive characterisation of historical mortars, while in the next stage a compatible conservation mortar was designed and characterised, with special attention given to the contact zone formation between original and conservation mor…
  • Preparation of CaCO3/Al(OH)3 Composites via Heterogeneous Nucleation. [Journal Article]
    Materials (Basel). 2023 Jan 04; 16(2)Xu Y, Bao W, … Qu J
  • As one of the most widely used inorganic fine powder fillers, calcium carbonate is cheap. However, considering its poor light transmittance, it is not suitable to be added to resin matrix composites that require high light transmittance. Aluminum hydroxide has good light transmission and flame retardancy, but it is more expensive than calcium carbonate. CaCO3/Al(OH)3 composites with a core-shell …
  • Adsorptive exchange of coccolith biominerals facilitates viral infection. [Journal Article]
    Sci Adv. 2023 Jan 20; 9(3):eadc8728.Johns CT, Bondoc-Naumovitz KG, … Bidle KD
  • Marine coccolithophores are globally distributed, unicellular phytoplankton that produce nanopatterned, calcite biominerals (coccoliths). These biominerals are synthesized internally, deposited into an extracellular coccosphere, and routinely released into the external medium, where they profoundly affect the global carbon cycle. The cellular costs and benefits of calcification remain unresolved.…
  • Hydrogel Complex Containing the Antimicrobial Peptide HX-12C Accelerates Healing of Infected Wounds. [Journal Article]
    Macromol Biosci. 2023 Jan 20 [Online ahead of print]Chen H, Song Y, … Qin Z
  • Bacterial infections of the wound surface can be painful for patients, and traditional dressings do not effectively address this problem. In this study, we prepared an antimicrobial wound dressing using a novel antimicrobial peptide, HX-12C. This hydrogel system is based on the natural biomaterials sodium alginate and gelatin, utilizing calcium carbonate as a source of Ca2+ , and ionic cross-link…
  • Acid-Triggered Release of Eugenol and Fluoride by Desensitizing Macro- and Nanoparticles. [Journal Article]
    J Funct Biomater. 2023 Jan 11; 14(1)Sereda G, Ahammadullah A, … Solano YA
  • The modern dentifrice industry needs non-toxic materials able to adhere to dentin, occlude dentinal tubules, hold pharmacons at the surface of dentin, and release them on demand to the location the tooth needs them most. Novel dental materials loaded with eugenol or fluoride-ions examined for the release of the pharmacon in an aqueous suspension efficiently adhere to the surface of human dentin a…
