In situ visualization of platinum via synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence spectrometry, International Journal of Cancer, 10.1002/ijc.32592, 146, 9, 2498-2509, 2020.05, Oxaliplatin (l-OHP), a platinum-based drug, is a key chemotherapeutic agent for colorectal cancer (CRC), but drug resistance and toxic effects have been major limitations of its use. Synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence spectrometry (SR-XRF) is a rapid, nondestructive technique for monitoring the distribution of metals and trace elements in cells or tissue samples. We applied SR-XRF to visualize the distribution of platinum and other elements in 30 rectal cancer specimens resected from patients who received l-OHP-based preoperative chemotherapy and quantified platinum concentration in the tumor epithelium and stroma, respectively, using calibration curves. The platinum concentration in rectal cancer tissue ranged 2.85–11.44 ppm, and the detection limit of platinum was 1.848 ppm. In the tumor epithelium, the platinum concentration was significantly higher in areas of degeneration caused by chemotherapy than in nondegenerated area (p < 0.001). Conversely, in the tumor stroma, the platinum concentration was significantly higher in patients with limited therapeutic responses than in those with strong therapeutic responses (p < 0.001). Furthermore, multivariate analysis illustrated that higher platinum concentration in the tumor stroma was an independent predictive factor of limited histologic response (odds ratio; 19.99, 95% confidence interval; 2.04–196.37, p = 0.013). This is the first study to visualize and quantify the distribution of platinum in human cancer tissues using SR-XRF. These results suggest that SR-XRF analysis may contribute to predicting the therapeutic effect of l-OHP-based chemotherapy by quantifying the distribution of platinum..

Kakeru Ninomiya, Kazutaka Kamitani, Yusuke Tamenori, Kazuki Tsuruta, Toshihiro Okajima, Daisuke Yoshimura, Hideaki Sawada, Keisuke Kinoshita, Maiko Nishibori, Observation of Chemical State for Interstitial Solid Solution of Carbon in Low-carbon Steel by Soft X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy, isij international, 10.2355/isijinternational.ISIJINT-2019-206, 60, 1, 114-119, 2020.01, The near-edge X-ray absorption fine structure at the carbon K edge was measured for determining the chemical state of interstitial carbon in a low-carbon steel. In addition, the wavelength dependence of the photoelectron spectrum of the surface of the steel was evaluated, and a contamination and oxidation layer of 3 nm thickness was found. As a result, it was possible to observe a change in the chemical state of carbon existing in bulk iron located deeper than the oxidation and contamination layers, by evaluating the difference spectra between the sample and a reference. Furthermore, by evaluating the shape change of the difference spectra based on the heat treatment time, it was found that the chemical state of carbon in bulk iron changes with heat treatment..
6. Hiroyuki Yamaura, Hiroki Takahashi, Makoto Fukuoka, Maiko Nishibori, Syuhei Yamaguchi, Hidenori Yahiro, PM oxidation over Ag-loaded perovskite-type oxide catalyst prepared by thermal decomposition of heteronuclear cyano-complex precursor, Catalysis Today, 10.1016/j.cattod.2018.08.019, 83-88, 2019.07, The Ag-loaded perovskite-type oxide catalysts (Ag/LaFeO3-CN and Ag/LaFeO3-imp) were prepared using two different methods, and their catalytic activities for carbon combustion were examined. Ag loading was observed to exhibit a positive effect on the catalytic activity of carbon combustion for an Ag/LaFeO3-CN catalyst that was prepared by the calcination of an Ag-loaded heteronuclear metal cyano-complex precursor. However, Ag loading was not observed to be significantly effective in case of Ag/LaFeO3-imp that was prepared by a general impregnation method. Such a noticeable enhancement in the activity of an Ag/LaFeO3-CN catalyst was assumed to originate from both the high dispersion of Ag that was loaded on LaFeO3 and from the formation of reactive oxygen species between metallic Ag species and the perovskite-type oxide..

Tomoya Kaneko, Kohei Nosue, Tomoki Uchiyama, Masaru Nagano, Naoki Ankei, Kazutaka Kamitani, Maiko Nishibori, Oxygen sorption-desorption properties and orderdisorder transitions on LaSrCoFe perovskite-type oxides, Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan, 10.2109/jcersj2.19033, 127, 6, 378-382, 2019.06, The oxygen non-stoichiometry (¤) and structural properties of a brownmillerite-type oxide of La0.1Sr0.9Co0.9Fe0.1O (LSCF1991) during oxygen sorption/desorption were investigated by simultaneously applying a temperature-programmed technique and high-temperature X-ray diffraction. The structural changes of perovskite-type (P-type) to brownmillerite-type (B-type) and B-type to P-type occurred within limited p(O2) ranges, and a B-type phase-stable region was observed in the presence of oxygen at high temperature. Moreover, P-type LSCF1991 changed into B-type LSCF1991 through tetragonal P-type LSCF1991 as an intermediate phase. B-type LSCF1991 showed repeating structural changes with a certain limited p(O2), which is 0.5% < p(O2) < 1.0%, whereas such changes could not be observed at p(O2) > 1.0%. These behaviors correspond with the temperature programmed desorption of oxygen profiles, as well as the amount of lattice oxygen (3¤). The p(O2) dependence of the structural change will provide a basis for a further investigation into the durability of an oxygen-permeated membrane by predicting the strain across the membrane under practical conditions..

Woosuck Shin, Kazuki Tajima, Noriya Izu, Toshio Itoh, Ichiro Matsubara, Norimitsu Murayama, Maiko Nishibori, Tomoyo Goto, Thermoelectric gas sensors with selective combustion catalysts, Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan, 10.2109/jcersj2.18098, 127, 2, 57-66, 2019.02, Thermoelectric gas sensors (TGSs) were developed using a series of materials combined with gas-selective combustion catalysts. The TGSs have a micro-device structure formed on a membrane-type micro-hotplate to enhance their sensitivity. The working principle of the TGSs involves a synergetic combination of thermoelectric detection and the catalytic combustion of detection gas, which can eliminate the effects of humidity and other inflammable gases, allowing highly sensitive gas detection. This paper introduces the thin-film processing and the methodology of integrating the ceramic catalyst on the micro-device for the TGSs, and the mass production of gas sensors was demonstrated in this study. The TGSs can detect a wide H concentration range of several parts per million (ppm) to percent in air, exhibiting robust sensing performance with long-term stability. We developed new applications such as breath H

measurement with a H

concentration of 0200 ppm..

Kazutaka Kamitani, Ayumi Hamada, Kazutoshi Yokomachi, Kakeru Ninomiya, Kiyu Uno, Masaru Mukai, Yuko Konishi, Noboru Ohta, Maiko Nishibori, Tomoyasu Hirai, Atsushi Takahara, Depth-Resolved Characterization of Perylenediimide Side-Chain Polymer Thin Film Structure Using Grazing-Incidence Wide-Angle X-ray Diffraction with Tender X-rays, Langmuir, 10.1021/acs.langmuir.8b01566, 34, 29, 8516-8521, 2018.07, Polymers with a perylenediimide (PDI) side chain (PAc12PDI) consist of two kinds of crystalline structures with various types of orientations in a thin film. Understanding the population of the microcrystalline structure and its orientation along the thickness is strongly desired. Grazing-incidence wide-angle X-ray diffraction (GIWAXD) measurements with hard X-rays, which are generally chosen as λ = 0.1 nm, are a powerful tool to evaluate the molecular aggregation structure in thin films. A depth-resolved analysis for the outermost surface of the polymeric materials using conventional GIWAXD measurements, however, has limitations on depth resolution because the X-ray penetration depth dramatically increases above the critical angle. Meanwhile, tender X-rays (λ = 0.5 nm) have the potential advantage that the penetration depth gradually increases above the critical angle, leading to precise characterization for the population of crystallite distribution along the thickness. The population of the microcrystalline states in the PAc12PDI thin film was precisely characterized utilizing GIWAXD measurements using tender X-rays. The outermost surface of the PAc12PDI thin film is occupied by a monoclinic lattice with a = 2.38 nm, b = 0.74 nm, c = 5.98 nm, and β = 108.13°, while maintaining the c-axis perpendicular to the substrate surface. Additionally, the presence of solid substrate controls the formation of the crystallite with unidirectional orientation..
10. Kenji Obata, Akane Doi, Maiko Nishibori, Kengo Shimanoe, Takuya Suzuki, Shigenori Matsushima, Morphology, microstructure, and surface area of La-added MgFe2O4 powder, Nippon Seramikkusu Kyokai Gakujutsu Ronbunshi/Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan, 10.2109/jcersj2.17270, 126, 5, 402-407, 2018.05, La-added and pure MgFe2O4 powders were prepared from a malic acid complex, and the effect of La-adding on the microstructure and specific surface area of MgFe2O4 powder were examined. There were no traces of impurity phases for pure MgFe2O4 powder in the X-ray diffraction measurement after calcination in the range of 600 to 800°C. When La atoms were added to MgFe2O4, the crystallite growth of MgFe2O4 was suppressed remarkably, resulting in a higher specific surface area in comparison with the pure material, and the lattice volume increased. X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy measurements showed that the binding energies of Mg 2s, Fe 2p, O 1s, and La 3d signals were in good agreement with the Mg2+, Fe3+, O21, and La3+ valence states, respectively. Scanning electron microscopy observations revealed that MgFe2O4 powder shows an aggregation of granular particles and that the individual particles are tightly interconnected with each other, whereas smaller particles compared with pure MgFe2O4 were observed for the La-added powder. It was found from the N2 adsorption measurement, moreover, that the amount of mesopore increases with La addition..

Formation of a thermally stable and reactive copper hydroperoxo species, ACS Catalysis, 10.1021/acscatal.7b04092, 8, 4, 2645-2650, 2018.04, [Cu(terpy)]2+ complexes encapsulated into Na-Y zeolite ([Cu(terpy)]2+@Y) were prepared, and their catalytic activities for the oxidation of sulfides using hydrogen peroxide were investigated. Several spectroscopic results, as well as elemental analysis, demonstrated the formation of [Cu(terpy)]2+ complexes in supercages of Y-zeolite. [Cu(terpy)]2+@Y exhibited high selectivity for the oxidation of thioanisole into methylphenylsulfoxide when H2O2 was used. The kinetic study of this oxidation at the catalyst [Cu(terpy)]2+@Y suggests that the reaction of [Cu(terpy)]2+ species with H2O2 is the rate-determining step. The oxidation of thioanisole, benzene, and 2-phenylethylamine using [[Cu(terpy)]2+@Y]∗, which was prepared from the reaction between [Cu(terpy)]2+@Y and H2O2, quantitatively proceeded to methylphenylsulfoxide, phenol, and 2-amino-1-phenylethanol, respectively. The reaction of [Cu(terpy)]2+@Y and H2O2 was found to yield thermally stable but active CuII-OOH species in [Cu(terpy)]2+@Y..

White, Nobuyuki Otozawa, Tomoyasu Hirai, Atsushi Takahara, Preparation of High-Density Polymer Brushes with a Multihelical Structure, Langmuir, 10.1021/acs.langmuir.7b04167, 34, 10, 3283-3288, 2018.03, It is well-known that a mixture of isotactic and syndiotactic polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) forms a stereocomplex consisting of a multihelical structure in which an isotactic chain is surrounded by a syndiotactic chain. Here, we report the basic structure of the stereocomplex formed when the syndiotactic PMMA chains are tethered to a silicon substrate and form a high-density polymer brush. The influence of geometric confinement was investigated by preparing the high-density polymer brushes on a flat and spherical substrate. In both cases, mixing the untethered isotactic PMMA with the grafted syndiotactic PMMA led to the formation of a stereocomplex with a multihelical structure. Static contact angle measurements showed a hindered surface mobility at the outermost surface of the polymer brush, indicating that the stereocomplex forms a crystalline structure. A syndiotactic polymer brush with substituted fluoroalkyl groups was prepared to increase the contrast for grazing incidence wide-angle X-ray diffraction (GIWAXD) measurements. The GIWAXD results verified that the stereocomplex forms a crystalline structure oriented perpendicular to the substrate with a relatively low degree of orientation..

O

adsorption equilibrium constants, K

and K

, respectively, were calculated from the relationship between the electrical resistance and the oxygen partial pressure (P
O2
) using a competitive adsorption model. It was found that the values of both K
1
and K
2
decreased with increasing humidity, indicating a reduction in the amount of oxygen adsorption on the In

particles can detect CO at ppm level in dry and wet atmospheres, although they were greatly reduced in wet atmospheres. Moreover, we found that the sensor response to CO is closely related to the values of K

X-ray spectroscopy supported the divalent character of the inner copper centers, and electron paramagnetic resonance and magnetometric studies suggested the presence of unpaired d electrons strongly antiferromagnetically coupled with π-radicals delocalized on the macrocycle. The 25 π non-innocent dioxohexaphyrin ligand allowed the facile interconversion between antiaromatic 24 π and aromatic 26 π species, respectively, upon redox reactions..

Hongcheng Ruan, Maiko Nishibori, Tomoki Uchiyama, Kazutaka Kamitani, Kengo Shimanoe, Soot oxidation activity of Ag/HZSM-5 (Si/Al=40) catalyst, Evergreen, 4, 2-3, 7-11, 2017.09, Ag/HZSM-5 with Si/Al ratio of 40 was synthesized by the impregnation method. The catalyst materials were characterized by the X-ray diffraction and X-ray absorption spectroscopy by Ag-L3 edge and Ag-K edge. Three different chemical states of Ag (ZO-Ag+, O-Ag+ and metallic Ag, here Z represents Si or Al) in the catalyst. The soot oxidation performance was evaluated by the TG-DTA measurement and showed two combustion stages in tight contact mode which indicates the intrinsic soot oxidation activity. This is because that a lot of Ag ion-exchanged with H ions and existed in the pores of HZSM-5 as ZO-Ag+, which cannot work for soot oxidation. Additionally, this catalyst has a high thermal stability even after high temperature program at 800 °C..

Labhsetwar, Solvent-free, improved synthesis of pure bixbyite phase of iron and manganese mixed oxides as low-cost, potential oxygen carrier for chemical looping with oxygen uncoupling, Pure and Applied Chemistry, 10.1515/pac-2016-1127, 89, 4, 511-521, 2017.04, Chemical looping with oxygen uncoupling (CLOU) is the tendency of releasing gaseous oxygen of an oxygen carrier upon heating, which is the key property for the efficient and cleaner combustion of solid fuels for their wide exploitation for thermal power applications. The solvent-free, improved synthesis method was developed for the synthesis of pure bixbyite, FeMnO3 (Ia3-, a=b=c=0.94 nm) as a low-cost, oxygen carrier by exposing of the abundantly available precursors (Fe3O4 and MnO) under inert- or reduction- atmosphere followed by air at 900°C. The bixbyite FeMnO3 showed the enhanced, stable multi-cycle CLOU performance than that of the physical mixture and it is converted into FeMn2O4 after the complete exhaustion of reactive oxygen under CLOU conditions. FeMnO3 showed the uniform elemental distribution of Fe, Mn and O, which facilitate the regeneration in air upon heating for multi-cycle performance. 3.2 wt.% of reactive oxygen can be obtained compared to the mass of FeMnO3 which is almost equal to the theoretical value under CLOU conditions. The lattice of FeMnO3 is altered linearly above 100°C with the increase of temperature, however; without the decomposition of the bixbyite phase and it was reinstated virtually upon cooling in air..

There were no traces of any impurity phase in Si-doped and pure MgFe2O4 powders both in XRD measurements. When Si atoms were doped to MgFe2O4 , crystallite growth of MgFe2O4 was remarkably suppressed, and the lattice volume increased up to 10 mol% Si monotonously. SEM observations revealed that MgFe2O4 powders show a granulation shape such as the aragonite and each particle tightly interconnected each other, whereas smaller particles compared with pure MgFe2O4 were observed for Si-doped MgFe2O4 . Also, it was found that the amount of mesopore increases by Si doping. Further, XPS and XAS measurements suggested that Si atoms exist in MgFe2O4 crystal..

The design of this system puts emphasis on reliable data collection for the structural analysis. With this system, the adjustment of the optical systems for both x-ray and laser beams can be done easily, and high quality diffraction data can be obtained typically within several minutes. A system for temperature measurement of ten points in a sample area at the same time was also developed. The performance of the laser heated DAC system was tested by observing phase transitions of natural olivine..

Since this beamline is designed to provide X-rays with the energies higher than 37 keV (λ < 0.33 Å), this camera is advantageous in crystal structure analyses of heavily X-ray absorbing materials. The title crystal structure analysis led to precise positional parameters and well-behaved displacement parameters not only for heavy atoms but also for light atoms..

Tetsuo Irifune, Maiko Nishibori, Iron partitioning in a pyrolite mantle and the nature of the 410-km seismic discontinuity, Nature, 10.1038/33663, 392, 6677, 702-705, 1998.04, Pyrolite is a hypothetical mixture of distinct minerals which is widely believed to represent the composition of the Earth's mantle. The main pressure-induced phase transformations of the olivine component of pyrolite occur at about 13.5 GPa (α to β) and 24 GPa (γ to MgSiO3-rich perovskite + magnesiowustite), which are thought to be responsible for the seismic discontinuities at 410 and 660 km depths in the mantle. Recent seismological studies, however, have demonstrated that the 410-km seismic discontinuity is sharper in some areas than that expected from the α to β transformation in mantle olivine with a fixed composition. Moreover, some mineral physics studies suggest that the seismic velocity jump at the 410-km discontinuity is inconsistent with that associated with the α to β transformation in olivine. Here we present a phase equilibria study of a material having pyrolite composition at pressures of 6-16 GPa. We found that the iron content in olivine changes significantly with increasing pressure, as a result of the formation of a relatively iron-rich majorite phase at these pressures. This variation in iron content can overcome, or at least reduce, both of the above difficulties encountered with the pyrolite model of mantle composition, by showing that the component mineral systems cannot be treated as separate..

The boundary was determined at temperatures between 1400°to 1800°C, demonstrating that the postspinel phase boundary has a negative Clapeyron slope as estimated by quench experiments and thermodynamic analyses. The boundary was located at 21.1 (± 0.2) gigapascals, at 1600°C, which is ~2 gigapascals lower than earlier estimates based on other high-pressure studies..

While serpentine completely dehydrates at temperatures higher than 600-800°C and at pressures to 12 GPa, phase assemblages including some dense hydrous magnesium silicates (DHMS) such as phases A, E, superhydrous B and D were formed at higher pressures. Phase D was found to possess a stability field of particularly wide pressure and temperature regime, suggesting that this phase may play an important role in transportation of water into the lower mantle via subduction of cold slabs..
