Synthesis and antiprotozoal activity of furanchalcone–quinoline, furanchalcone–chromone and furanchalcone–imidazole hybrids
(Springer Verlag, 2018)
We report herein the synthesis and biological activities (cytotoxicity, leishmanicidal, and trypanocidal) of several furanchalcone–quinoline, furanchalcone–chromone, and furanchalcone–imidazole hybrids. The synthesized ...
Citrus plants exude proline and phytohormones under abiotic stress conditions
(Springer Verlag, 2017)
Key message This article describes the root exudation of proline and phytohormones in citrus and their involvement in salt- and heat-stress responses. Abstract Plants are constantly releasing several compounds to the ...
Zoophytophagous mirids provide pest controlby inducing direct defences, antixenosis andattraction to parasitoids in sweet pepper plants
BACKGROUND: In addition to their services as predators, mirid predators are able to induce plant defences by phytophagy.However, whether this induction occurs in sweet pepper and whether it could be an additional beneﬁt ...
Categorizing paintings in art styles based on qualitative color descriptors, quantitative global features and machine learning (QArt-Learn)
The QArt-Learn approach for style painting categorization based on Qualitative Color Descriptors (QCD), color similarity (SimQCD), and quantitative global features (i.e. average of brightness, hue, saturation and lightness ...
Imidazolium Iodide-Doped PEDOT Nanofibers as Conductive Catalysts for Highly Efficient Solid-State Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells Employing Polymer Electrolyte
(American Chemical Society, 2017)
The electrical conductivity and catalytic activity of nanofibrous poly(3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene)s (PEDOT NFs) was improved by redoping with dimethyl imidazolium iodide (DMII) as a charge transfer facilitator. Addition ...
Influence of implementing selective collection on municipal waste management systems in developing countries: A Brazilian case study
The aim of this study is to analyse the evolution of the municipal solid waste management (MSWM) system of João Pessoa (Brazil), which is one of the pioneering Brazilian cities to implement door-to-door selective collection ...
Firm-local community relationships in polluting industrial agglomerations: How firms' commitment determines residents' perceptions
This research contributes to the literature on the management of firm–local community relationships in polluting industrial agglomerations. Taking as reference a previous quantitative study on residents' perceptions of ...
Coordinating the overall stomatal response of plants: Rapid leaf-to-leaf communication during light stress
(American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2018)
The plant canopy functions as an aerial array of light-harvesting antennas. To achieve maximal yield, each leaf within this array and the array as a whole need to rapidly adjust to naturally occurring fluctuations in light ...
Psychosocial and sexual health factors of Spanish women who participate in ecofeminist spirituality
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-12)
This article explores the spiritual movements emerging from ecofeminism as possible environments where psychosocial and sexual factors are promoted for the Spanish women who participate in them. The study is based on a ...
New formulation and characterization of enhanced bulk-organic phase change materials
The main drawbacks faced by researchers to successfully implement organic-PCM as materials to improve the thermal performance of building systems are their low thermal conductivity, their high flammability, and their low ...
