A dyadic growth modeling approach to examine associations between weight gain and lung function decline: The NHLBI Pooled Cohorts Study (2020)
Journal Article
Cornelius, T., Schwartz, J. E., Balte, P., Bhatt, S. P., Cassano, P. A., Currow, D., …Oelsner, E. C. (in press). A dyadic growth modeling approach to examine associations between weight gain and lung function decline: The NHLBI Pooled Cohorts Study. American Journal of Epidemiology,

ABSTRACT The relationship between body weight and lung function is complex. Using a dyadic multilevel linear modeling approach, treating body mass index (BMI) and lung function as paired, within-person outcomes, we test the hypothesis that individ...

Chromium Nucleosynthesis and Silicon–Carbon Shell Mergers in Massive Stars (2020)
Journal Article
Côté, B., Jones, S., Herwig, F., & Pignatari, M. (2020). Chromium Nucleosynthesis and Silicon–Carbon Shell Mergers in Massive Stars. The Astrophysical journal, 892(1), https://doi.org/10.3847/1538-4357/ab77ac

We analyze the production of the element Cr in galactic chemical evolution (GCE) models using the NuGrid nucleosynthesis yields set. We show that the unusually large [Cr/Fe] abundance at [Fe/H] ≈ 0 reported by previous studies using those yields and...

Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells (2020)
Journal Article
Beeby, E., Magalhães, M., Poças, J., Collins, T., Lemos, M., Barros, L., …Pires, I. (in press). Secondary metabolites (essential oils) from sand-dune plants induce cytotoxic effects in cancer cells. Journal of Ethnopharmacology,

Ethnopharmacological relevance: Despite advances in modern therapeutic strategies, cancer remains the second leading cause of death worldwide. Therefore, there is a constant need to develop more efficient anticancer targeting strategies. The anticanc...

Electrical and mechanical analysis of a segmented solar thermoelectric generator under non-uniform heat flux (2020)
Journal Article
Shittu, S., Li, G., Xuan, Q., Zhao, X., Ma, X., & Cui, Y. (in press). Electrical and mechanical analysis of a segmented solar thermoelectric generator under non-uniform heat flux. Energy,

Optimization of segmented solar thermoelectric generator for power output enhancement has been well researched however, the mechanical reliability study of such devices is usually neglected. In addition, assumed heat flux distribution or uniform flux... Read More about Electrical and mechanical analysis of a segmented solar thermoelectric generator under non-uniform heat flux.

A pyrenyl-appended C-symmetric hexahomotrioxacalix[3]arene for selective fluorescence sensing of iodide (2020)
Journal Article
Xie, H., Wu, C., Zou, J., Yang, Y., Xu, H., Zhang, Q., …Yamato, T. (2020). A pyrenyl-appended C-symmetric hexahomotrioxacalix[3]arene for selective fluorescence sensing of iodide. Dyes and pigments : an international journal, 178, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.dyepig.2020.108340

A new C3v-symmetric hexahomotrioxacalix[3]arene L bearing pyrene moieties as fluorophores has been designed and synthesized. L exhibits a significant fluorescence quenching response to I− even when in the presence of other potentially competing anion...
