Chemistry of Glycolic Acid (HOCH2COOH) on Titanium Dioxide
Jong-Liang Lin

Air pollution is one of the major concerns in environmental protection. Organic compounds in aerosols distributed in the atmosphere contain a substantial amount of carboxylic acid molecules. It has been reported that 3.6% of the organic content is composed of glycolic acid [1]. TiO2 is a chemically stable semiconductor and used as a photocatalyst for degradation of organic compounds. As TiO2 …

Controlling a Time-Varying Unified Chaotic System via Interval Type 2 Fuzzy Sliding-Mode Technique
Tzuu-Hseng S. Li

Chaos in control systems and controlling chaos in dynamical systems have been intensively studied over the past two decades. Nowadays, various techniques and methods have been proposed to achieve controlling chaos, such as synchronization of different chaotic system, adaptive control methods, back-stepping design techniques, and fuzzy sliding-mode control methods. In this study, …

Identification of produced powerful radicals involved in the mineralization of bisphenol A using a novel UV-Na2S2O8/H2O2-Fe(II,III) two-stage oxidation process
Yao-Hui Huang

This study mainly proposed two novel technologies for efficient Bisphenol A (BPA) decontaminantion, and investigated the behavior of dominant radicals and intermediates involved in these BPA degradation processes.

Firstly, we took advantage of the high oxidation–reduction potential of hydroxyl and sulfite radicals transformed from peroxymonosulfate (PMS) (stoichiometric ratio: …

Requirement of Inducible Nitric Oxide Synthase in Lipopolysaccharide-Mediated Src Induction and Macrophage Migration
Tzeng-Horng Leu

As important effectors of innate immunity, macrophages play a crucial role in the host response to inflammation and bacterial infection.  During these processes, macrophages are mainly participated in the phagocytosis of bacteria and host cell debris, processing and presentation of antigens, and the secretion and release of reactive nitrogen intermediates as well as inflammatory cytokines. …
