    PEREIRA, L.A.T. ; MARTINEZ, L.G. ; ROSSI, J.L. ; TAKIISHI, H. . Recycling of zircaloy machining chips using powder metallurgy and remelting in an electric arc furnace. Advances in Materials Science and Engineering, v. 1, n. 1, p. 1-5, 2017.

    Abstract: Nuclear power reactors use UO2 pellets as nuclear fuel and Zircaloy as cladding. Machining chips are generated in the fabrication of Zircaloy. This highly valuable material is not discarded for regular recycling due to its low market price. This paper presents two methods for recycling Zircaloy chips. The first is the powder metallurgy technique, where by the chips were subjected to hydriding, which involved milling, isostatically pressing and sintering the material. The second technique consisted of melting the chips in an electric arc furnace to obtain ingots, which were heat-treated. The chemical composition, crystal phases, hardness and microstructures produced by the two methods were characterized, strongly suggesting that Zircaloy chips maybe a source of high quality material that can be reused in the field of nuclear technology and in biomaterials.

    MIKOLA, TALITA V.Z.; POTENZA, MARCOS R.; REIS, FABRICIO C. ; SILVA, VANESSA C. da; SATO, MARIO E.; SAKITA, MASSAKO N.. Evaluation of essential oils of Eucalyptus spp. for the control of the subterranean termite Coptotermes gestroi (WASMAN) / Toxicidade de óleos essenciais de Eucalyptus spp. para o controle do cupim subterrâneo Coptotermes gestroi (WASMAN). Revista Árvore, v. 41, n. 2, p. 1-8, 2017. DOI: 10.1590/1806-90882017000200017

    Abstract: The subterranean termite Coptotermes gestroi (Wasman) (Isoptera: Rhinotermitidae) is considered one of the main pest species in urban areas in the Southeast Region of Brazil. For the control of this pest, the use of chemical insecticides is recommended, but this method is problematic in urban areas because of the risks of intoxication in the population and environmental contamination along with difficulties in isolating the treated areas. Therefore, it is necessary to find alternative methods aimed at minimizing the undesirable effects on the human population and the environment caused by termite control measures. The objective of this research was to evaluate the toxicity of several essential oils of Eucalyptus (E. camaldulensis, E. citriodora, E. tereticornis, E. pseudoglobulus, and E. maidenii) to the termite C. gestroi, under laboratory conditions. The oils were applied on filter papers that were infested with C. gestroi immediately after the treatment. The most toxic oil to the termite was E. citriodora, with the lowest lethal concentration (LC50: 0.63%) and the shortest lethal time (LT50: <1 h at 10%, LT50: 42.4 h at 1.25%). The least toxic oil was E. pseudoglobulus, with the highest lethal concentration (LC50: 3.66%) and the longest lethal time (LT50: 11.1 h at 10%; LT50: 473 h at 1.25%). These results indicate the potential for use of eucalyptus essential oils, especially for E. citriodora, for the control of C. gestroi. This article also provides information on the yield from essential oil extraction for different eucalyptus species.

    Abstract: Automotive industry demands products that work under extreme conditions. The development of components for internal combustion engines is an action to improve this product, so that it reaches the required life with acceptable levels of wear and respecting the legal operating limits, such as values of emission pollutants. In view of these requirements, it is necessary to study components considered critical, which are known to influence the performance of the engine. So, within this universe the tribology of the intake valve and valve seat insert is an important set, that must receive attention to its wear and consequently its influence on the engine degradation, in the emission of pollutants and performance related to the operational maintenance requirements and life of the product. The aim of this work is to evaluate the behavior of the tribological intake pair, valve and valve seat insert, submitted to dynamometer and vehicular tests (real operating conditions), regarding the level and type of wear occurred in the pair. Correlating the results obtained with legal and operational performance requirements of a Diesel cycle engine, as well as the characterization of the wear type occurred in the tribological pair, with the related literature.

    Abstract: Aerosols can play the role of cloud and ice condensation nuclei. This study shows a set of measurements and experiments analysis in remote sensing, in distinct scenarios of cloud cover during day/nightime measurements using lidar, visible all-sky camera and solar photometry. The retrieved products are studied to obtain aerosol optical and physical properties in the vicinity of clouds. In this approach cloud cover and optical properties should be retrieved as well as main features used for cloud pixel identi cation, e. g., Red-Blue Di erence, Red- Blue Ratio, Normalized Red-Blue Ratio, Saturation and Intensity. We show some case studies to illustrate this methodology.

In: INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR ON SENSOR, INSTRUMENTATION, MEASUREMENT AND METROLOGY, August 25-26, 2017, Surabaya, Indonesia. Proceedings... Piscataway, NJ: IEEE, 2017. p. 99-103.

    Abstract: A huge Brazilian nuclear project, the Brazilian Multipurpose Research Reactor (RMB), is being carried out and one of the project steps is to verify experimentally the physical quantities related to the operational performance of the new fuel elements. In this context, the aim of this work is to characterize the neutron detectors due to its crucial role during the nuclear reactor criticalization. A series of experiments was performed at the IPEN/MB-01 nuclear reactor in order to characterize a set of new helium-3-filled gas proportional counters. The detectors characterization procedure takes into account the operating voltage curve and the detectors dead time. The Rossi-α method was employed in order to acquire the time difference between a detected neutron pair. The dead time determination through the Rossi-α method is very important to discriminate the reflector effect over the neutron lifetimes in subcritical reactivity levels. Furthermore, the Auto Power Spectral Densities (APSD) for those new detectors were experimentally acquired and those results were compared among some well-known detectors and with theoretical simulation results using the MCNP5 code with the ENDF/B-VII.0 library neutron data.

    Abstract: Analysis of the uncertainty quantification related to nuclear safety margins applied to the nuclear reactor is an important concept to prevent future radioactive accidents. The nuclear fuel performance code may involve the tolerance level determined by traditional deterministic models producing acceptable results at burn cycles under 62 GWd/MTU. The behavior of nuclear fuel can simulate applying a series of material properties under irradiation and physics models to calculate the safety limits. In this study, theoretical predictions of nuclear fuel failure under transient conditions investigate extended radiation cycles at 75 GWd/MTU, considering the behavior of fuel rods in light-water reactors under reactivity accident conditions. The fuel pellet can melt due to the quick increase of reactivity during a transient. Large power excursions in the reactor are the subject of interest bringing to a treatment that is known as the Fuchs-Hansen model. The point kinetic neutron equations show similar characteristics of non-linear differential equations. In this investigation, the multivariate logistic regression is employed to a probabilistic forecast of fuel failure. A comparison of computational simulation and experimental results was acceptable. The experiments carried out use the pre-irradiated fuels rods subjected to a rapid energy pulse which exhibits the same behavior during a nuclear accident. The propagation of uncertainty utilizes the Wilk's formulation. The variables chosen as essential to failure prediction were the fuel burnup, the applied peak power, the pulse width, the oxidation layer thickness, and the cladding type.

    GIMENES, CELSO H. ; MARIN, DEBORA C.L.; MARIN, JEFERSON R.; MELLO, ROBERTO C. de. Storytelling em organizações: uma ferramenta de gestão e liderança. Revista Científica Hermes, v. 3, p. 37-43, 2010.

    Abstract: Um líder bem sucedido é, um bom contador de histórias. Storytelling (contar histórias) sempre foi um recurso fundamental nos grupos humanos: neles, as histórias são usadas para socializar, comunicar, liderar, planejar, pensar, ensinar, motivar, enganar, entender, advertir e tantos outros fins. Uma história marcante, contada e repetida pelos dirigentes de uma organização é, normalmente, mais motivadora para seus colaboradores do que manuais, normas e procedimentos escritos. No âmbito das organizações, os líderes geralmente se valem das competências em contar histórias (metáforas, parábolas, casos, chavões, piadas) para divulgar suas políticas, seus planos e modos de agir. Com base na literatura disponível, este trabalho apresenta um panorama sobre o tema, a fim de colaborar com a disseminação, para as organizações brasileiras, sobre a utilização de storytelling. Conclui-se que o storytelling se tornou mais uma ferramenta a ser utilizada pelos líderes, cujos resultados de sua aplicação ainda não foram divulgados de forma ampla, devido ao ineditismo do tema, tendo-se apenas alguns relatos de sua utilização.

    BETINI, E.G.; MUCSI, C.S. ; LUZ, T.S.; ORLANDO, M.T.D.; AVETTAND-FENOEL, M.N.; ROSSI, J.L. . Effect of post-weld heat treatment on thermal diffusivity in UNS S32304 duplex stainless steel welds. Archives of Materials Science and Engineering, v. 88, n. 2, p. 49-58, 2017.

    Abstract: Purpose: The thermal diffusivity variation of UNS S32304 duplex stainless steel welds was studied after pulsed GTA welding autogenous process without filler addition. This property was measured in the transverse section of thin plates after welding process and post-heat treated at 750°C for 8 h followed by air-cooling. Design/methodology/approach: The present work reports measurements of thermal diffusivity using the laser-flash method. The thermal cycles of welding were acquired during welding by means of k-type thermocouples in regions near the weld joint. The used shielding gas was pure argon and 98% argon plus 2% of nitrogen. The temperature profiles were obtained using a digital data acquisition system. Findings: It was found an increase of thermal diffusivity after welding process and a decrease of these values after the heat treatment regarding the solidified weld pool zone, irrespective of the welding protection atmosphere. The microstructure was characterized and an increase of austenite phase in the solidified and heat-affected zones was observed for post-weld heat-treated samples. Research limitations/implications: It suggests more investigation and new measurements about the influence of the shielding gas variation on thermal diffusivity in the heat-affected zone. Practical implications: The nuclear industry, especially, requests alloys with high thermal stability in pipes for power generation systems and safe transportation equipment’s for radioactive material. Thus, the duplex stainless steel grades have improved this stability over standard grades and potentially increase the upper service temperature reliability of the equipment. Originality/value: After heat treatment, the welded plate with 98%Ar plus 2%N2 as shielding gas presented a thermal diffusivity closer to the as received sample. By means of 2%-nitrogen addition in shielding gas during GTAW welding of duplex stainless steel may facilitate austenite phase reformation, and then promotes stability on the thermal diffusivity of duplex stainless steels alloys.

    BELLONI, M. ; CONTI, T. das N.. The need for changes in electric distribution network for the use of the mini and micro on grid generators. Journal “Scientific Israel - Technological Advantages", v. 19, n. 2, p. 52-58, 2017.

    Abstract: It is expected that with the diversification of utilization rates, the increased demand for electricity and the difficulties encountered in hydroelectric generation, promote the acquisition of more renewable energy generators connected to the network. There's no way to keep a nationwide system of interconnected components and mini-generation connected to the network, effectively without the deployment of the smart grid. Through studies carried out in some inverters used in solar generators, it was verified the existence of harmonics that are injected in the distribution network, creating fluctuations of voltage and current. Rectification of the sine wave inverter, and the connection of multiple network generators cause oscillations in both voltage and frequency, making necessary a network that not only identify these fluctuations, but to interpret, going further, as should take measures to mitigate the effects of these oscillations. This requires an intelligent, interconnected network to the central data processing, intuitive and with a certain degree of autonomy, reducing response time to problems, directing and compensating voltage spikes and rectifying the quality of electricity injected by miscellaneous generators connected to the same.

    PEREIRA, CONRADO de V. . Oxidação do etanol por eletrocatalisador a base de platina e estanho (PtSn/C-ITO) preparados pelo método de redução por borohidreto de sódio / Ethanol oxidation using platinum and tin as electrocatalyst (PtSn/C-ITO) prepared by sodium reduction borohydride method . 2018. Dissertação (Mestrado em Tecnologia Nuclear) - Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares - IPEN-CNEN/SP, São Paulo. 79 p. Orientador: Almir Oliveira Neto.

    Abstract: Os eletrocatalisadores de PtSn/C-ITO foram preparados pelo método de redução via borohidreto de sódio com uma carga metálica de 20% em massa suportados em carbono Vulcan XC72 e óxidos de estanho e índio (ITO) nas seguintes composições; 50:50, 70:30 e 90:10. Os eletrocatalisadores foram submetidos a análises de caracterização por difração de raios-x (DRX), microscopia de transmissão eletrônica (MET), espectroscopia de energia dispersiva de raios x (EDX) e análises eletroquímicas pelas técnicas de voltametria cíclica e de amperometria para os estudos da oxidação eletroquímica em etanol. Nas técnicas eletroquímicas foi utilizado o eletrodo de camada fina porosa onde os eletrocatalisadores foram testados tanto no meio ácido quanto no meio alcalino. Experimentos em célula unitária alimentadas diretamente por etanol foram testados simulando condições reais de operação. As análises eletroquímicas e de caracterização física em meio ácido permitiram comparar o desempenho e estabilidades dos eletrocatalisadores em estudo e também demonstraram os benefícios da adição do estanho e do ITO, tendo como destaque o eletrocatalisador de PtSn/C-ITO 70:30. Em meio alcalino o eletrocatalisador PtSn/C-ITO 50:50 demonstrou ter o melhor desempenho nas análises de voltametria cíclica e amperometria, entretanto, a mesma eficácia não ocorreu nos experimentos em célula unitária o que leva a crer que em meio alcalino o mecanismo de oxidação do etanol sob temperatura e outros parâmetros reais pertinentes à operação da célula precisam ser mudados e/ou estudados.

Dissertação (Mestrado em Tecnologia Nuclear) - Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares - IPEN-CNEN/SP, São Paulo. 73 p. Orientador: Nanci do Nascimento.

    Abstract: O acidente ofídico há anos se tornou um problema de saúde pública no Brasil devido à alta prevalência e gravidade do quadro e o estado do Tocantins figura entre as maiores incidências do país neste agravo. Este estudo descritivo do perfil epidemiológico e levantamento dos dados clínicos das vítimas de acidente ofídico foi realizados no Hospital de Referência de Porto Nacional, Tocantins, que é referência para vários outros municípios na região central do estado. No triênio 2013 2015 houve um crescimento anual do número de casos, totalizando 149 vítimas de acidente ofídico. Os acidentes mais frequentes envolveram serpentes do gênero Bothrops, compreendendo 85,9% dos casos. Cerca de 80% das vítimas eram do sexo masculino, faixa etária prevalente entre 19 40 anos (34,9%) e o pé foi a região mais afetada (65,8%). Cabe ressaltar que em 98% dos casos houve infecção bacteriana secundária com uso de antibióticos, sendo a cefalosporina de primeira geração a mais utilizada. A maioria dos pacientes (75,2%) foi atendida durante as primeiras 3 horas, e classificados como casos moderados. O tratamento foi feito com uso médio de 6,6 ampolas de soro antibotrópico. O melhor conhecimento clínico e epidemiológico destes acidentes ofídicos pode levar a redução de gastos públicos com internações, diminuição do uso de antibiótico, diminuindo a resistência aos mesmos, afastamento laboral e possíveis sequelas, fatos que não vem ocorrendo nos últimos anos. A análise dos dados servirá como alerta para melhoria da prevenção primária com o objetivo de redução dos acidentes ofídicos e secundária, com rápido tratamento e prevenção de sequelas.

    SILVA, DAYANE F. . Análise do comportamento da contenção do reator Angra 2 durante um acidente de base de projeto / Analysis of the behavior of the Angra 2 reactor containment during a design basis accident . 2017. Dissertação (Mestrado em Tecnologia Nuclear) - Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares - IPEN-CNEN/SP, São Paulo. 143 p. Orientador: Gaianê Sabundjian.

    Abstract: Este trabalho visa verificar a integridade da contenção do reator de Angra 2, com uma abordagem mais realista, da possibilidade de conter todos os radionuclídeos gerados durante Acidentes de Perda de Refrigerante Primário por Grande Ruptura (Large Break Loss of Coolant Accident - LBLOCA). Além disso, essas informações são utilizadas para o cálculo mais realista do Pico de Temperatura do Encamisamento (PTE) da vareta mais realista do núcleo deste reator durante esse acidente. Os resultados desse estudo possibilitarão verificar a integridade da Planta após a ocorrência de acidentes considerados base de projeto. Alguns dos programas utilizados para analisar a contenção de uma usina nuclear são o RELAP5 e o COCOSYS. Esses códigos computacionais são ferramentas de análise que preveem as condições termohidráulicas dentro de um prédio de contenção de um reator refrigerado à água leve. A contenção da planta tipo Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) é um edifício de concreto revestido internamente por metal e tem limites de pressão que devem ser respeitados durante a ocorrência de um acidente. Os dados de entradas necessários para esta simulação são: adição de massa e energia geradas do estudo de um acidente do tipo LBLOCA com o código RELAP5 da planta em questão. Os resultados da análise do comportamento da contenção da planta nuclear Angra 2 durante os acidentes base de projetos estudados rupturas do tipo guilhotina do circuito primário nas pernas fria e quente foram satisfatórios quando comparados com os apresentados no Relatório de Análise de Segurança (RFAS/A2) da planta e as distribuições de pressão ficaram bem abaixo do valor de pressão de projeto da contenção (6,3bar).

Dissertação (Mestrado em Tecnologia Nuclear) - Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares - IPEN-CNEN/SP, São Paulo. 72 p. Orientador: Denise Maria Zezell.

    Abstract: Uma caracterização bioquímica eficiente da cicatrização das feridas por queimadura pode melhorar a rotina clínica para a ajustar os tratamento dos pacientes. Considerando a dificuldade de monitoramento de cicatrização, a espectroscopia no infravermelho por transformada de Fourier acoplado com o acessório de Reflexão Total Atenuada (ATR-FTIR) é uma técnica analítica a qual tem demonstrado capacidade de prover biomarcadores espectrais no materiais biológicos. Esse estudo avaliou a capacidade de usar ATR-FTIR para classificar a pele queimada com o intuito de monitorar o reparo tecidual em pacientes. Ratos Wistar com pele queimada foram avaliados pela espectroscopia ATR-FTIR nos dias 3, 7, 14 e 21 após a queimadura e comparados com amostras de grupos sadios. Os espectros obtidos foram separados nas regiões entre 900 a 1800 cm-1 e entre 2800 a 3000 cm-1 para posterior adequação quimiométrica. Avaliou-se as amplitudes das derivadas de segunda ordem dos espectros como parâmetro de discriminação, nos quais demonstraram diferenças significativas para os grupos não queimados com controle e entre grupos de queimadura usando Glicogênio (1030 cm-1), Amida I (1628 cm-1), Amida II (1514 cm-1), Colágeno em 1281 cm-1 e Colágeno em 1336 cm-1. Esses resultados indicam que ATR-FTIR é sensível para detectar os estágios de reparo tecidual e pode futuramente ser um instrumento auxiliar para a rotina clínica.

Efeito da radiação gama nas propriedades nutricionais e bioativas de alimentos minimamente processados destinados a dietas especiais / Effect of gamma radiation on nutritional and bioactive properties in minimally processed food intended for special diets . 2016. Tese (Doutorado em Tecnologia Nuclear) - Instituto de Pesquisas Energéticas e Nucleares - IPEN-CNEN/SP, São Paulo. 139 p. Orientador: Susy Frey Sabato. Coorientador: Ursula Maria Lanfer Marquez.

    Abstract: A nutrição possui papel de fundamental importância na promoção da saúde. Os alimentos in natura podem ser encontrados na forma de frutas e vegetais minimamente processados (fresh-cut) embalados. Uma alternativa para a administração de alguns alimentos in natura aos indivíduos imunocomprometidos e neutropênicos, ou até mesmo para a população em geral, é a aplicação de radiação gama, em doses sub-esterilizantes, com o intuito de oferecer alimentos de qualidade e seguros do ponto de vista microbiológico. A descrição na literatura sobre tentativas de oferecer alimentos seguros e saudáveis aos indivíduos portadores de patologias do sistema imune é escassa. Assim, o objetivo do trabalho foi avaliar o efeito de diferentes doses de radiação gama na composição química, no teor de compostos bioativos e atividade antioxidante de abacaxi, salada de frutas, mini cenouras e salada de folhas minimamente processados destinados a dietas especiais. As amostras foram submetidas à radiação gama, com doses de 0.5, 1, 2 e 3 kGy e analisadas juntamente com as amostras controle (não irradiadas). Foram analisados a composição centesimal, compostos fenólicos, flavonóides, proantocianidinas, atividade antioxidante por ORAC e DPPH•, vitamina C e carotenóides. Não foram observadas alterações significativas nos compostos avaliados antes e após a irradiação, com exceção dos carotenóides que demonstraram um aumento significativo dos teores após a aplicação de radiação gama. Assim, pode-se concluir que a irradiação, aplicada em baixas doses e em alimentos minimamente processados, promove a manutenção do valor nutricional do alimento, trazendo benefícios aos indivíduos que necessitam de alimentos seguros e de suficiente aporte nutricional que garanta a promoção e recuperação da saúde, tais como os imunocomprometidos.

Hygroscopic growth study in the framework of EARLINET during the SLOPE I campaign: synergy of remote sensing and in situ instrumentation. Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, v. 18, n. 10, p. 7001-7017, 2018. DOI: 10.5194/acp-18-7001-2018

    Abstract: This study focuses on the analysis of aerosol hygroscopic growth during the Sierra Nevada Lidar AerOsol Profiling Experiment (SLOPE I) campaign by using the synergy of active and passive remote sensors at the ACTRIS Granada station and in situ instrumentation at a mountain station (Sierra Nevada, SNS). To this end, a methodology based on simultaneous measurements of aerosol profiles from an EARLINET multi-wavelength Raman lidar (RL) and relative humidity (RH) profiles obtained from a multi-instrumental approach is used. This approach is based on the combination of calibrated water vapor mixing ratio (r) profiles from RL and continuous temperature profiles from a microwave radiometer (MWR) for obtaining RH profiles with a reasonable vertical and temporal resolution. This methodology is validated against the traditional one that uses RH from co-located radiosounding (RS) measurements, obtaining differences in the hygroscopic growth parameter (γ) lower than 5 % between the methodology based on RS and the one presented here. Additionally, during the SLOPE I campaign the remote sensing methodology used for aerosol hygroscopic growth studies has been checked against Mie calculations of aerosol hygroscopic growth using in situ measurements of particle number size distribution and submicron chemical composition measured at SNS. The hygroscopic case observed during SLOPE I showed an increase in the particle backscatter coefficient at 355 and 532 nm with relative humidity (RH ranged between 78 and 98 %), but also a decrease in the backscatter-related Ångström exponent (AE) and particle linear depolarization ratio (PLDR), indicating that the particles became larger and more spherical due to hygroscopic processes. Vertical and horizontal wind analysis is performed by means of a co-located Doppler lidar system, in order to evaluate the horizontal and vertical dynamics of the air masses. Finally, the Hänel parameterization is applied to experimental data for both stations, and we found good agreement on γ measured with remote sensing (γ532 = 0.48 ± 0.01 and γ355 = 0.40 ± 0.01) with respect to the values calculated using Mie theory (γ532 = 0.53 ± 0.02 and γ355 = 0.45 ± 0.02), with relative differences between measurements and simulations lower than 9 % at 532 nm and 11 % at 355 nm.

This type of dosimeter presents advantages that makes them a useful tool for measurements in anthropomorphic phantoms and in vivo dosimetry. Several dosimetric materials have been used in the radiotherapy sectors such as LiF, μLiF, CaSO4:Dy. The OSL dosimetry has also been widely applied using Aluminum Oxide (Al2O3:C). These dosimeters have advantages over TLDs due to their high sensitivity, extensive linearity in response to the dose, faster reading, possibility of multiple readings and the need to perform the heat treatment of the samples. The aim of this work was to compare and characterize, using TL and OSL techniques, different luminescent dosimeters (LiF, μLiF, CaSO4:Dy and Al2O3:C) to be applied in clinical electron beam used to TSEB treatments. Measurements were performed in order to study the applicability of these detectors as easy-to-take alternatives to calibration and measurements of TSEB treatments. Parameters such as dose-response curves; average sensitivity to radiation, intrinsic efficiency and energy and angular dependences were evaluated. The results show good agreement within CaSO4:Dy and TLD-100 measurements and, applying energy and angle dependence factors over the other two materials, all the four detectors can be applied as alternative easy-to-take dosimetric tools for commissioning and quality assurance of 6 MeV clinical electron beams used in TSEB treatments.

Optical properties and antimicrobial effects of silver nanoparticles synthesized by femtosecond laser photoreduction. Optics and Laser Technology, v. 103, p. 233-238, 2018. DOI: 10.1016/j.optlastec.2018.01.044

    Abstract: Silver nanoparticles exhibit a powerful antimicrobial action showing a pronounced potential to be widely used against drug resistance bacteria. The present work describes the optical properties and antimicrobial effect of silver nanoparticles produced by femtosecond laser photoreduction of AgNO3 in the presence of tryptophan water solution. The advantages of this method are the absence of hazardous chemical reducing agents in the solution, and the versatile dimensional control achieved. The synthesized silver nanoparticles were characterized by absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy and their antibacterial activity were determined by monitoring the cell viability of Escherichia coli. The effects of the silver nanoparticles concentration and laser parameters (exposure time and pulse energy), on the formation of the nanoparticles, and its influence on the bacteria growth inhibition were studied. The prepared silver nanoparticles exhibited suitable antimicrobial properties. The results demonstrated that the nanoparticles concentration plays an important role in their bactericidal efficacy. The increase in the laser energy caused an increase in E. coli growth inhibition. Irradiations with energies around 300 mu j for 60 min presented high antimicrobial activity due to the presence of kynurenine, sub product of tryptophan photolysis. The first-time formation mechanism of tryptophan silver nanoparticles in high optical intensities was also discussed.

    Abstract: Meat quality is normally defined by a combination of factors such as visual appearance, smell, firmness, succulence, tenderness, and flavor. Contamination of poultry meat with pathogens remains an important public health issue since it can cause illnesses due to negligence in handling, cooking or post-cooking storage. Conventionally, meat quality tests are based on visual evaluation or chemical analysis, which have the disadvantages of being subjective and time-consuming. To improve the biological contamination detection accuracy and productivity, the evaluation of porphyrin contents in meat by fluorescence spectroscopy is proposed, considering that most microorganisms and animal cells excrete porphyrins. For this purpose, chicken meat was cut into small pieces and separated in three groups: a control group where the meat was conserved under refrigeration, and two experimental groups in which the pieces were kept for 24 and 30 h at room temperature. Porphyrin was extracted from the meat samples and the fluorescence was measured in the range 550-750 nm, under excitation around 400 nm. The fluorescence lifetime was also studied. To ensure porphyrin synthesis, a concentration of 9.3 mM of delta-Aminolevulinic acid (ALA) was added to each sample, 2 h before porphyrin extraction. The results show that, in meat kept at room temperature and incubated with ALA, the porphyrin fluorescence increased, and a short-lived component was enhanced due to the action of microorganisms, indicating a potential new method to test meat quality.

    Abstract: This chapter seeks to compare the properties of samples manufactured by additive manufacturing (AM) by the selective laser melting (SLM) technology and compare with the precision casting (PC) processes using the Co-Cr-Mo (ASTM F75) alloy to manufacture of dental prosthesis. This AM process can be manufactured three-dimensional models by means of a laser beam that completely melts particles of powder deposited layer by layer. However, it is still relevant to know the properties of: performance, dimensional, mechanical and microstructural of this laser melting process and compare with a convencional process. The results of mechanical evaluation showed that the SLM technique provides superior mechanical properties compared to those obtained by the PC technique. It is possible to verify that the consolidation by SLM technique results in lower presence of porosity than PC technique. In addition, PC samples presented a gross dendritic microstructure of casting process. Microstructural analysis of SLM samples results in a characteristic morphology of layer manufacturing with ultrafine grains and a high chemical homogeneity. In this way, the development of the present study evidenced to improve the manufacture of customized components (copings) using the SLM technology.

    Abstract: A route of increasing development in additive manufacturing (3D printing) process using metal alloys is the selective laser melting (SLM). 3D building components is possible by laser power that completely melts the metal powder particles. SLM was applied in a biomaterial of CoCrMo alloy, to study the mechanical properties and microstructural characterization in comparison of the conventional technique – lost wax casting. The gas atomized powder was investigated by their physical (as apparent density, bulk density and flow rate) and chemical properties (X-ray fluorescence). Standard samples evaluated the mechanical properties as yield strength, elongation, elastic modulus, transverse rupture strength and the Vickers hardness. Microstructural characterization was performed using optical microscope (OM) and scanning electron microscope (SEM-EDS). Thermal analysis of CoCrMo alloy were investigated using thermomechanical analysis (TMA) and differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) techniques. The results of mechanical properties showed higher values in the SLM specimens compared with the obtained in the cast specimens. The micrographs revealed a typical morphology of consolidation process, characterized by selected layer used in the SLM technique and the dendrites arms in the casting technique. The thermal results confirm the phase’s transitions of CoCrMo alloy.

    Abstract: Biomaterial powders are in high development due to expansion of additive manufacturing (AM) processes. Selective laser melting (SLM) is a particular AM technology, which completely melts a powder bed layer by laser beam. Investigations of appropriated physical properties of feedstock (powder alloy) were the aim of this study. Cobalt-chromium-molybdenum (Co-Cr-Mo) alloy was used to overview of gas-atomized powder properties in different granulometric ranges (D1 12 - 19 μm, D2 20 - 46 μm and D3 76 - 106 μm), as their: physical, chemical properties and thermal analysis. SLM manufactured standard tensile specimens of usually granulometric range powder size provided mechanical, chemical and thermal properties of biocompatible Co-Cr-Mo alloy. The physical properties showed that powders in the range of 20 to 50 μm provide a better flow ability and packed density, which are relevant characteristics to SLM processing. Manufacturing by SLM process provided suitable mechanical properties in the health area, as well as, maintained the biocompatible properties of the Co-Cr-Mo alloy.

    Abstract: O tratamento do carcinoma hepatocelular ou câncer de fígado primário é um desafio terapêutico. Uma vez que o crescimento dos nódulos ocorre de modo lento e assintomático, levando a um diagnóstico tardio, somente 10 a 15% dos pacientes são elegíveis aos métodos de tratamento convencional, tais como a cirurgia. Tratamentos alternativos são necessários para os pacientes inoperáveis e a radioterapia interna seletiva é uma opção. Nesta terapia, microesferas contendo um radionuclídeo em sua estrutura são inseridas por meio de um cateter na artéria hepática e migram até o fígado, apresando-se nas arteríolas que alimentam o tumor. As células cancerosas são aniquiladas devido ao bloqueio da alimentação e à deposição de dose de radiação. Neste trabalho, foram produzidos vidros aluminossilicatos contendo hólmio para produção de microesferas para esta aplicação e foram avaliadas as propriedades físicas e químicas dos vidros obtidos visando à aplicação em radioterapia interna seletiva.

    Abstract: Nowadays, the development of polymeric materials reinforced with residues of vegetal fibers is becoming popular for application in different segments, from the automotive to the civil construction and furniture industry. Vegetal fiber residues may be used as reinforcement of the recycled polymer materials, for instance, to produce foams to packaging or to thermal and acoustic isolation for green building application. This work is focused on the development and characterization of recycled-HDPE/EVA foam reinforced with fiber residues from babassu coconut epicarp. Firstly, composites based on recycled-HDPE/EVA blend reinforced with babassu coconut fiber were obtained by melting extrusion process. The composites were then extruded in a special single screw for foaming. The foam samples were submitted to mechanical tests, density measurement, DSC, TG, and FE-SEM analysis.

    Abstract: The inorganic nanotube halloysite (HNT) is a promising type of natural occurring filler for polymers. Its characteristics, such as high aspect ratio (10–50), small size, and high strength (elastic modulus—140 GPa) suggest that HNTs have a potential use in high-performance polymer nanocomposites. Compared to other nanoclays and nanosilica the relatively low content of hydroxyl groups on their surfaces makes HNTs relatively hydrophobic, although, sometimes, this is not sufficient for guaranty a good interfacial adhesion in composite systems. Further hydrophobic treatment is required to improve HNTs compatibility with polymer matrixes, maximizing interfacial interactions. In the present study, different percentages of EPB (2,2-(1,2-ethene diyldi-4,1-phenylene) bisbenzoxazole) was used to perform a non-covalent functionalization of halloysite, based on electron transfer interactions. The functionalization is characterized by specific surface area (BET), thermogravimetric analysis (TG) and water/toluene extraction experiment.

    Abstract: Poly [(ethylene)-co-(vinyl acetate)] (EVA) is a thermoplastic copolymer composed of randomly distributed polyethylene and polyvinyl acetate sequences within the molecular chain. EVA combines toughness with excellent flexibility, impact and puncture resistance. Because of these properties, this material is largely used for foam production as padding in equipment for various sports and as a shock absorber in sport’s shoes. This work aims to study the influence of clay reinforcement on the performance of recycled polymer foams. The blend containing recycled HDPE (high density polyethylene) and recycled EVA (70/30 wt%, respectively) reinforced with 2 wt% of clays were prepared by melt extrusion, using a twin-screw extruder to obtain the composites. The composites and foaming agent were fed into a special single screw extruder for foaming. The samples of HDPE/EVA/Clay foams were characterized by tensile test, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscopy (FE-SEM), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TG), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), X-ray Diffraction (XRD), density measurement and the correlation between the results was evaluated.

    Abstract: There are several additives aimed on improving the processing characteristics as well as mechanical properties of the plastic materials. Being polypropylene is one of the main polymers used in the plastic processing industry due to its easy processability and application versatility, was chosen as the base resin for this study. Additives can aid the processing of polypropylene, either by promoting a better slip between the chains (lubricants), or by contributing to nucleation and crystallinity (nucleating). In this study, the raw materials copolymer polypropylene, lubricant (internal and external action), organic nucleating agent (metallic salt) and inorganic nucleating agent (metallic oxide) were considered. Mechanical tensile tests, Charpy impact and spiral flow to verify melt index were performed to characterize the samples with additives and standard (copolymer polypropylene). The interference of these additives with polymeric matrix was observed.

    Abstract: Due to its versatility and low cost, polypropylene (PP) is one of the most widely used polymers in the world, consequently in research and development of new products. The polypropylene modified was prepared by gamma irradiation in acetylene at 12.5 kGy dose, technical polymer also known as high-melt-strength-polypropylene (HMSPP). It was mixed with montmorillonite (MMT) clay and silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) for bactericide activity. HMS-Polypropylene-clay -silver nanocomposites were manufactured using twin-screw extruders. Those materials were prepared by a melt mixing process via twin screw extrusion with a wide range of processing conditions. The polypropylene nanocomposites (PPNC) surfaces were exposed to gamma-radiation (60Co) source in presence of nitrogen as inert atmosphere at 1; 3; 5; 10; 20 and 50 kGy doses for modified the surfaces in order to enhance biocide activity. The samples surfaces were characterized by Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), X-ray Diffraction (XRD), Thermogravimetric Analysis (TGA), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Energy Dispersive Spectroscopy (EDX) and evaluated by determination of bactericide effects. The results indicate the formation of structures predominantly intercalated of HMSPP nanocomposite. Contact tests for antibacterial activity of the hybrid polymer were applied against Escherichia coli (Gram-negative) and Staphylococcus aureus (Gram-positive) bacteria. The irradiations on the samples surfaces were insufficient to promote activity on contact biocide tests.

    Abstract: Polymeric hydrogels are natural or synthetic systems, which have gained interest due to their high biocompatibility with soft tissues. These types of hydrogels have been used for wound dressing as a drug delivery system. Here in this study the polymeric hydrogels based wound healing systems were prepared using poly (N-vinyl-2-pyrrolidone) (PVP), poly (ethylene glycol) (PEG), agar and neomycin drug followed by gamma irradiation to promote crosslinking and sterilization. The influence of irradiation process with 25 kGy dose was investigated. The gel fraction and maximum swelling were estimated using physicochemical methods and found about 95% gel fraction and 1100% swelling after 8 h of immersion. Neomycin released from hydrogel was carried out by Liquid Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry method and the drug concentration remained constant for 48 h. Hydrogel/neomycin exhibited antibacterial effects against Staphylococcus aureus. With these results, it can be inferred that hydrogel/neomycin is a suitable candidate for wound dressing.

    DIAS, M.S. ; SEMMLER, R. ; MOREIRA, D.S. ; MENEZES, M.O. de ; BARROS, L.F. ; RIBEIRO, R.V.; KOSKINAS, M.F. . SUMCOR: cascade summing correction for volumetric sources applying MCNP6. Applied Radiation and Isotopes, v. 134, n. SI, p. 205-211, 2018. DOI: 10.1016/j.apradiso.2017.09.014

    Abstract: The main features of code SUMCOR developed for cascade summing correction for volumetric sources are described. MCNP6 is used to track histories starting from individual points inside the volumetric source, for each set of cascade transitions from the radionuclide. Total and FEP efficiencies are calculated for all gamma-rays and X-rays involved in the cascade. Cascade summing correction is based on the matrix formalism developed by Semkow et al. (1990). Results are presented applying the experimental data sent to the participants of two intercomparisons organized by the ICRM-GSWG and coordinated by Dr. Marie-Cristine Lepy from the Laboratoire National Henri Becquerel (LNE-LNHB), CEA, in 2008 and 2010, respectively and compared to the other participants in the intercomparisons.

    Abstract: Traceability in Nuclear Medicine Service (NMS) measurements was checked by the Institute of Radioprotection and Dosimetry (IRD) through the Institute of Energy and Nuclear Research (IPEN). In 2016, IRD ran an inter comparison program and invited Brazilian NMS authorized to administer I-131 to patients. Sources of I-131 were distributed to 33 NMSs. Three other sources from the same solution were sent to IRD, after measurement at IPEN. These sources were calibrated in the IRD reference system. A correction factor of 1.013 was obtained. Ninety percent of the NMS comparisons results are within +/- 10% of the National Laboratory of Metrology of Ionizing Radiation (LNMRI) value, the Brazilian legal requirement.

    Abstract: The effects of small amounts of gallium oxide on intragrain and intergrain conductivity of La0.9Sr0.1Ga0.8Mg0.2O3-δ are investigated by impedance spectroscopy in the 280–420 °C range. Bulk specimens with 0.5, 1.0 and 1.5 mol% gallium oxide are prepared by solid state reaction at 1350 °C. All specimens achieved relative density values higher than 95%. The additive promotes grain growth indicating solid solution formation. A small fraction of the additive remains at grain boundaries and increases the fraction of the gallium-rich, LaSrGa3O7, impurity phase. The intragrain conductivity of gallium oxide containing specimens is higher than that of the parent solid electrolyte. Similar effect is found for the intergrain conductivity, which is maximum for 1 mol% gallium oxide addition.

Biogeochemical diversity, O2-supersaturation and hot moments of GHG emissions from shallow alkaline lakes in the Pantanal of Nhecolândia, Brazil. Science of the Total Environment, v. 619-620, p. 1420-1430, 2018. DOI: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2017.11.197

    Abstract: Nhecolândia is a vast sub-region of the Pantanal wetland in Brazil with great diversity in surface water chemistry evolving in a sodic alkaline pathway under the influence of evaporation. In this region, > 15,000 shallow lakes are likely to contribute an enormous quantity of greenhouse gas to the atmosphere, but the diversity of the biogeochemical scenarios and their variability in time and space is a major challenge to estimate the regional contribution. From 4 selected alkaline lakes, we compiled measurements of the physico-chemical characteristics of water and sediments, gas fluxes in floating chambers, and sedimentation rates to illustrate this diversity. Although these lakes have a similar chemical composition, the results confirm a difference between the black-water and green-water alkaline lakes, corresponding to distinct biogeochemical functioning. This difference does not appear to affect lake sedimentation rates, but is reflected in gas emissions. Black-water lakes are CO2 and CH4 sources, with fairly constant emissions throughout the seasons. Annual carbon dioxide and methane emissions approach 0.86 mol m− 2 y− 1 and 0.07 mol m− 2 y− 1, respectively, and no clear trend towards N2O capture or emission was observed. By contrast, green-water lakes are CO2 and N2O sinks but important CH4 sources with fluxes varying significantly throughout the seasons, depending on the magnitude of the phytoplankton bloom. The results highlight important daily and seasonal variations in gas fluxes, and in particular a hot moments for methane emissions, when the O2-supersaturation is reached during the afternoon under extreme bloom and sunny weather conditions, provoking an abrupt O2 purging of the lakes. Taking into account the seasonal variability, annual methane emissions are around 10.2 mol m− 2 y− 1, i.e., much higher than reported in previous studies for alkaline lakes in Nhecolândia. Carbon dioxide and nitrous oxide consumption is estimated about 1.9 mol m− 2 y− 1 and 0.73 mmol m− 2 y− 1, respectively. However, these balances must be better constrained with systematic and targeted measurements throughout the seasons.

    DOMIENIKAN, C. ; BOSCH-SANTOS, B. ; CABRERA-PASCA, G.A.; SAXENA, R.N. ; CARBONARI, A.W. . Anomalous behavior of the magnetic hyperfine field at 140Ce impurities at La sites in LaMnSi2. AIP Advances, v. 8, n. 5, p. 055702-1 - 055702-6, 2018. DOI: 10.1063/1.5006897

    Abstract: Magnetic hyperfine field has been measured in the orthorhombic intermetallic compound LaMnSi2 with perturbed angular correlation (PAC) spectroscopy using radioactive 140La(140Ce) nuclear probes. Magnetization measurements were also carried out in this compound with MPSM-SQUID magnetometer. Samples of LaMnSi2 compound were prepared by arc melting the component metals with high purity under argon atmosphere followed by annealing at 1000°C for 60 h under helium atmosphere and quenching in water. X-ray analysis confirmed the samples to be in a single phase with correct crystal structure expected for LaMnSi2 compound. The radioactive 140La (T1/2 = 40 h) nuclei were produced by direct irradiation of the sample with neutrons in the IEA-R1 nuclear research reactor at IPEN with a flux of ∼ 1013 n cm−2s−1 for about 3 - 4 min. The PAC measurements were carried out with a six BaF2 detector spectrometer at several temperatures between 10 K and 400 K. Temperature dependence of the hyperfine field, Bhf was found to be anomalous. A modified two-state model explained this anomalous behavior where the effective magnetic hyperfine field at 140Ce is believed to have two contributions, one from the unstable localized spins at Ce impurities and another from the magnetic Mn atoms of the host. The competition of these two contributions explains the anomalous behavior observed for the temperature dependence of the magnetic hyperfine field at 140Ce. The ferromagnetic transition temperature (TC) of LaMnSi2 was determined to be 400(1) K confirming the magnetic measurements.
