One important feature in the gas phase chemistry of surfactants is to ascertain whether their aggregates produced by electrospray ionization reflect those formed in the starting solution. With this aim, we have performed ESI-MS, ESI-MS/MS and ER-MS spectra of bis(2-ethylhexyl)sulfosuccinate (AOTNa) solutions in different solvents, i.e. water, water/methanol, methanol and ...

Unexpected [M + 15](+) ions were formed during the analysis of aromatic aldehydes by use of methanol in positive-ion electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. Aromatic aldehydes with electron-withdrawing groups or electron-donating groups were all tested to make sure the universality. All the aromatic aldehydes studied with methanol as the solvent could generate [M + 15](+) ...

Reported here is a comparison of electron transfer dissociation (ETD) and collision-induced dissociation (CID) of solvent-coordinated dipositive uranyl and plutonyl ions generated by electrospray ionization. Fundamental differences between the ETD and CID processes are apparent, as are differences between the intrinsic chemistries of uranyl and plutonyl. Reduction of both charge ...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) is associated with impaired ejaculation. After SCI, more stimuli may be required to trigger what remains of sexual reflexes. Penile vibratory stimulation (PVS) induces a strong afferent nerve stimulation and intense activation of the autonomic nervous system, and is considered first-line treatment. Oral midodrine may come ...

The author uses the lens of myth and fairy tales to examine the narratives generated by the analytic experience. Fairy tales are understood as representing fundamental developmental conflicts, accounting for their enduring power over time. The analytic encounter is seen as an analogue of the fairy tale in which the ...

Evidence in medicine depends on original studies but also comes from systematic review. The most the literature grows up, the most systematic reviews are needed to synthesize the evidence, since this can help operators in decision making. The Cochrane reviews are considered the most reliable instruments of synthesis, being based ...

Five perfluorocompounds [perfluoropentane, 4-(perfluoroethoxy)-perfluorobutane, 5-(perfluoroethyl)-perfluorotetrahydrofuran, 2-(trifluoromethyl)-perfluorotetrahydropyran, and 4-(trifluoromethyl)-perfluorotetrahydropyran] were analyzed by electron ionization (EI) and chemical ionization (CI), using methane and isobutane as reagent gases. Under CI conditions, isobutane does not lead to significative results whereas methane leads to high ionic yields [with respect to both CI (isobutane) and EI]. ...

The paper addresses the question: How does one read Schreber? Should one read ideas into his text to make sense of it, or should one listen to Schreber's own ideas? Freud read theories into Schreber and so did generations of psychiatric and psychoanalytic readers thereafter, creating Schreber, a myth. Looking ...

Patent blue (PB) dye has been successfully used worldwide in breast and cervix surgeries with few complications. Interference of oxyhemoglobin saturation reading by pulse oximetry (SpO(2)) and methemoglobinemia, from injection of PB dye, have rarely been reported in breast and cervix surgeries. We report here the first case of interference ...
