The Co(salen)(X) complex, where salen is chiral N,N'-bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)-1,2-cyclohexanediamine and X is an external axial ligand, has been widely utilized as a versatile catalyst. The Co(salen)(X) complex is a stable solid that has been conventionally described as a Co(III)(salen)(X) complex. Recent

Highly ordered mesoporous Co3O4 nanostructures were prepared using SBA-15 silica as hard templates. The mesoporous structures were characterized by X-ray diffraction, high resolution transmission electron microscopy, and N2 adsorption/desorption isotherm analysis. The results demonstrated that the as-prepared mesoporous Co3O4 has
Metal orthopedic implant debris-induced osteolysis of hip bone is a major problem in patients with prosthetic-hips. Although macrophages are the principal targets for implant-wear debris, the receptor(s) and mechanisms underlying these responses are not fully elucidated. We examined whether the

Femoral stems with dual-taper modularity were introduced to allow additional options for hip-center restoration independent of femoral fixation in total hip arthroplasty. Despite the increasing availability and use of these femoral stems, concerns exist about potential complications arising from the
