[More] Four aminosilane compounds were synthesized and employed as external electron donors for 1-butene polymerization with MgCl2 supported Ziegler-Natta catalyst. The four aminosilane compounds are di(piperidinyl)dimethoxysilane (DPPDMS), di(piperidinyl)- diethoxysilane (DPPDES), di(pyrrolidinyl)dimethoxysilane (DPRDMS) and di(pyrrolidinyl)- diethoxysilane (DPRDES). A detailed study has been performed on the effects of the chemical structure of different external electron donors on the catalytic efficiency, isotacticity, melting temperature and molecular weight distribution of obtained poly(1-butene). Poly(1-butene) products have been characterized with gel permeation chromatography (GPC) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) analysis. The results indicated that: first, aminosilane compounds with dimethoxy groups showed higher catalytic efficiency and polymers isospecificity than those of with diethoxy groups. Conversely, the aminosilane compounds with diethoxy groups were conductive to obtaining polymers with broader molecular weight distribution than those of with dimethoxy groups. Second, compared with single DPPDMS or TEOS (tetraethyl orthosilicate), DPPDMS/TEOS complex in a proper molar ratio would not only increase the catalytic efficiency and isotacticity of obtained polymers, but also broaden the molecular weight distribution of polymers. Third, the effects of other factors on catalytic efficiency and isotacticity of polymers product were also studied, including different amount of hydrogen, concentration of external donor and cocatalyst.



Di(piperidinyl)dimethoxysilane (DPPDMS) was synthesized and employed as external electron donors for 1-butene polymerization with MgCl2 supported Ziegler-Natta catalyst. Compared with single DPPDMS or TEOS (tetraethyl orthosilicate), DPPDMS/TEOS complex in a proper molar ratio would not only increase the catalytic efficiency and isotacticity of obtained polymers, but also broaden the molecular weight distribution of polymers. The selection of molar ratio should depend on the requirements to the polymer.

Doubly nonparametric sparse nonnegative matrix factorization based on dependent Indian buffet processes

Authors: Xuan, J; Lu, J; Zhang, G; Xu, RYD; Luo, X (2017) . HERO ID: 3859070

[More] Sparse nonnegative matrix factorization (SNMF) aims to factorize a data matrix into two optimized nonnegative sparse factor matrices, which could benefit many tasks, such as document-word co-clustering. However, the traditional SNMF typically assumes the number of latent factors (i.e., dimensionality of the factor matrices) to be fixed. This assumption makes it inflexible in practice. In this paper, we propose a doubly sparse nonparametric NMF framework to mitigate this issue by using dependent Indian buffet processes (dIBP). We apply a correlation function for the generation of two stick weights associated with each column pair of factor matrices while still maintaining their respective marginal distribution specified by IBP. As a consequence, the generation of two factor matrices will be columnwise correlated. Under this framework, two classes of correlation function are proposed: 1) using bivariate Beta distribution and 2) using Copula function. Compared with the single IBP-based NMF, this paper jointly makes two factor matrices nonparametric and sparse, which could be applied to broader scenarios, such as co-clustering. This paper is seen to be much more flexible than Gaussian process-based and hierarchial Beta process-based dIBPs in terms of allowing the two corresponding binary matrix columns to have greater variations in their nonzero entries. Our experiments on synthetic data show the merits of this paper compared with the state-of-the-art models in respect of factorization efficiency, sparsity, and flexibility. Experiments on real-world data sets demonstrate the efficiency of this paper in document-word co-clustering tasks.

Urinary levels of phthalate metabolites and associations with demographic characteristics in Korean adults

[More] The objective of this study is to assess human exposure to phthalates and its associations with demographic characteristics of the subjects in the Korean National Human Biomonitoring Survey. The subjects aged between 18 and 69 were selected through nationwide stratified sampling. A total of 1874 urine samples were collected and stored at -20 °C until measurement for ten selected metabolites of phthalates (MnBP, MiBP, MBzP, MCHP, MnOP, MEHP, MEOHP, MEHHP, MiNP, and MiDP) using high-performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). The difference in the level of urinary phthalate metabolites by the characteristics of the subjects was tested for statistical significance using SAS Surveyreg procedure. The coefficients and standard errors from multiple linear regressions were exponentiated to estimate the adjusted proportional change (APC) and 95% CIs compared with a referent level. The proportion of data above LOQ was less than 20% for MCHP, MnOP, MiNP, and MiDP. Geometric means of creatinine-adjusted concentrations (unit: μg/g creatinine) of six other phthalate metabolites among Korean adults were 41.7 (95% CI 39.6-43.9) for MnBP, 17.1 (95% CI 16.1-18.1) for MiBP, 15.7 (95% CI 14.4-17.1) for MBzP, 8.65 (95% CI 8.10-9.22) for MEHP, 17.5 (95% CI 16.8-18.3) for MEOHP, and 38.1 (95% CI 36.2-40.2) for MEHHP. Urinary level of phthalates tended to be higher among subjects with older age, females, and those with vigorous daily physical activity and tended to be lower among drinkers and those with higher income. Our results suggest that the level of phthalate exposure is significant among Korean adults and thus warrants further studies to identify major source and route of exposure to phthalates.

Maternal urinary phthalates and sex-specific placental mRNA levels in an urban birth cohort

Authors: Adibi, JJ; Buckley, JP; Lee, MK; Williams, PL; Just, AC; Zhao, Y; Bhat, HK; Whyatt, RM (2017) Environmental Health: A Global Access Science Source 16:35. HERO ID: 3859023

[Less] BACKGROUND: Prenatal urinary concentrations of phthalates in women participants in . . . [More] BACKGROUND: Prenatal urinary concentrations of phthalates in women participants in an urban birth cohort were associated with outcomes in their children related to neurodevelopment, autoimmune disease risk, and fat mass at 3,5,7, and 8 years of life. Placental biomarkers and outcomes at birth may offer biologic insight into these associations. This is the first study to address these associations with candidate genes from the phthalate and placenta literature, accounting for sex differences, and using absolute quantitation methods for mRNA levels.

METHODS: We measured candidate mRNAs in 180 placentas sampled at birth (HSD17B1, AHR, CGA, CYP19A1, SLC27A4, PTGS2, PPARG, CYP11A1) by quantitative PCR and an absolute standard curve. We estimated associations of loge mRNA with quartiles of urinary phthalate monoesters using linear mixed models. Phthalate metabolites (N = 358) and mRNAs (N = 180) were transformed to a z-score and modeled as independent, correlated vectors in relation to large for gestational age (LGA) and gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).

RESULTS: CGA was associated with 4 out of 6 urinary phthalates. CGA was 2.0 loge units lower at the 3(rd) vs. 1(st) quartile of mono-n-butyl phthalate (MnBP) (95% confidence interval (CI): -3.5, -0.5) in male placentas, but 0.6 loge units higher (95% CI: -0.8, 1.9) in female placentas (sex interaction p = 0.01). There was an inverse association of MnBP with PPARG in male placentas (-1.1 loge units at highest vs. lowest quartile, 95% CI: -2.0, -0.1). CY19A1, CYP11A1, CGA were associated with one or more of the following in a sex-specific manner: monobenzyl phthalate (MBzP), MnBP, mono-iso-butyl phthalate (MiBP). These 3 mRNAs were lower by 1.4-fold (95% CI: -2.4, -1.0) in male GDM placentas vs. female and non-GDM placentas (p-value for interaction = 0.04). The metabolites MnBP/MiBP were 16% higher (95% CI: 0, 22) in GDM pregnancies.

CONCLUSIONS: Prenatal concentrations of certain phthalates and outcomes at birth were modestly associated with molecular changes in fetal placental tissue during pregnancy. Associations were stronger in male vs. female placentas, and associations with MnBP and MiBP were stronger than other metabolites. Placental mRNAs are being pursued further as potential mediators of exposure-induced risks to the health of the child.
