Mineralization and defluoridation of 2,2,3,3-tetrafluoro -1- propanol (TFP) by UV oxidation in a novel three-phase fluidized bed reactor (3P-FBR)
Yao-Hui Huang

In the fabrication of CD-R and DVD-R, 2,2,3,3-tetrafluoro-1-propanol (TFP, C3H4F4O, M.W. = 132.06), a fluorinated alcohol, is employed as the colored solvent. The recordable optical disc storage industry in Taiwan consumes approximately 3,000 tons of TFP per year. The fluorinated alkyl-chain makes TFP bio-accumulative and very harmful to microorganisms …

Telehealth, sustainable economic development, and social welfare
Fuh-mei Wang

This study aims to examine how healthcare systems, including regimes of telemedicine and conventional medical care, stimulate economic growth and improve social welfare. To our knowledge, welfare valuation as well as economic-growth analysis of health services through the telecommunications system leaves a void in the literature. Drawing on literature from the healthcare and economics fields, …

Cefepime Therapy for Monomicrobial Bacteremia caused by Cefepime-susceptible Extended-Spectrum beta-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae: MIC matters
Wen-Chien Ko

Extended-spectrum ß-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates are important clinical pathogens, and the efficacy of cefepime in such a clinical setting is controversial. A retrospective study of monomicrobial bacteremia due to ESBL producers at two medical centers between May 2002 and August 2007 were conducted. The patients definitively treated by in vitro active …

High-Q dielectrics using ZnO-modified Li2TiO3 ceramics for microwave applications
Cheng-Liang Huang

The microwave dielectric properties of the (1–x)Li2TiO3xZnO (x = 0.1–0.5) ceramic system prepared by mixed oxide route have been investigated. The rock-salt structured (1–x)Li2TiO3xZnO were characterized by using X-ray diffraction spectra, scanning electron microcopy (SEM). The dielectric properties are strongly dependent on the compositions, …
