Delayed Antarctic melt season reduces albedo feedback (open access)

Delayed Antarctic melt season reduces albedo feedback

Article discusses how Antarctica's response to climate change varies greatly both spatially and temporally. The authors used a 43-year record of Antarctic snow melt seasons from space-borne microwave radiometers with a machine-learning algorithm to show that both the onset and the end of the melt season are being delayed.

A Remarkable Difference in Pharmacokinetics of Fluorinated Versus Iodinated Photosensitizers Derived from Chlorophyll-a and a Direct Correlation between the Tumor Uptake and Anti-Cancer Activity (open access)

A Remarkable Difference in Pharmacokinetics of Fluorinated Versus Iodinated Photosensitizers Derived from Chlorophyll-a and a Direct Correlation between the Tumor Uptake and Anti-Cancer Activity

Article says that to investigate and compare the pharmacokinetic profile and anti-cancer activity of fluorinated and iodinated photosensitizers (PSs), the 3-(1′-(o-fluorobenzyloxy)ethyl pyropheophorbide and the corresponding meta-(m-) and para (p-) fluorinated analogs (methyl esters and carboxylic acids) were synthesized. According to the authors, the nature of the delivery vehicle and tumor types showed a significant difference in uptake and long-term cure by photodynamic therapy (PDT), especially in the iodinated PS.

Incorporation of Chiral Frustrated Lewis Pair into Metal–Organic Framework with Tailored Microenvironment for Heterogeneous Enantio- and Chemoselective Hydrogenation (open access)

Incorporation of Chiral Frustrated Lewis Pair into Metal–Organic Framework with Tailored Microenvironment for Heterogeneous Enantio- and Chemoselective Hydrogenation

Article states that the development of efficient heterogeneous catalysts with multiselectivity (e.g., enantio- and chemoselectivity) has long been sought after but with limited progress being made so far. To achieve enantio- and chemoselectivity in a heterogeneous system, as inspired by enzymes, the authors illustrate herein an approach of creating an enzyme-mimic region (EMR) within the nanospace of a metal–organic framework (MOF) as exemplified in the context of incorporating a chiral frustrated Lewis pair (CFLP) into a MOF with a tailored pore environment.

Detecting interdisciplinary semantic drift for knowledge organization based on normal cloud model (open access)

Detecting interdisciplinary semantic drift for knowledge organization based on normal cloud model

Article describes how, to reduce the conceptual ambiguity in interdisciplinary knowledge organization systems (KOSs) and enhance interdisciplinary KOS management, this paper proposes a framework for interdisciplinary semantic drift (ISD) detection based on the normal cloud model (NCM). The research indicates the meaning of an interdisciplinary concept will drift from the high KPE discipline to the low KPE discipline as long as interdisciplinary knowledge potential differences (KPD) exist between these two related disciplines.

Descriptive Complexity in Cantor Series (open access)

Descriptive Complexity in Cantor Series

Article discusses how a Cantor series expansion for a real number x with respect to a basic sequence Q=(q), where qi≥2, is a generalization of the base b expansion to an infinite sequence of bases. The authors show that for any basic sequence the set of distribution normal numbers is Π03-complete, and if Q is 1-divergent then the sets of normal and ratio normal numbers are Π03-complete.

Urban edge trees: Urban form and meteorology drive elemental carbon deposition to canopies and soils (open access)

Urban edge trees: Urban form and meteorology drive elemental carbon deposition to canopies and soils

Article asserts that urban tree canopies are a significant sink for atmospheric elemental carbon (EC)--and air pollutant that is a powerful climate-forcing agent and threat to human health. The authors' findings indicate that complex configurations of roads, buildings, and vegetation produce “urban edge trees” that contribute to heterogeneous EC deposition patterns across urban systems, with implications for greenspace planning.
