Prediction of hexagonal lattice parameters of various apatites by artificial neural networks

Kockan, Umit
Evis, Zafer
In this study, the hexagonal lattice parameters of apatite compounds, M-10(TO4)(6)X-2, where M is Na+, Ca2+, Ba2+, Cd2+, Pb2+, Sr2+, Mn2+, Zn2+, Eu2+, Nd3+, La3+ or Y3+, T is As+5, Cr+5, P5+, V5+ or Si+4, and X is F-, Cl-, OH- or Br-, were predicted from their ionic radii by artificial neural networks. A multilayer perceptron network was used for training and the best results were obtained with a Bayesian regularization method. Four neurons were used in the hidden layer, utilizing a tangent sigmoid activation function, while one neuron was used in the output layer with a pure linear function. The results of the training showed that the correlation coefficients for the hexagonal lattice parameters were 0.991 for the training data set, which is very close to unity, demonstrating that the learning process was successful. In addition, the average errors of the predicted lattice parameters were less than 1% for the data set prepared with single ions at the M, T and X sites, as well as for apatites with coupled substitutions involving up to three different ions at each site. Simple mathematical formulae were derived for the prediction of lattice parameters using average ionic radii as independent variables.


Calculation of the T-X Phase Diagrams for Binary Mixtures of Cholestanyl Myristate-Cholesteryl Myristate and Cholestanyl Myristate-Cholesteryl Oleate
Yurtseven, Hasan Hamit (Wiley, 2009-01-01)
T-X phase diagrams of binary mixtures of cholestanyl myristate (CnM)-cholesteryl myristate (CrM) and cholestanyl myristate (CnM)-cholesteryl oleate (CO) are calculated using the mean field theory. We expand the free energies for the phases of cholesteric, smectic, and solid solutions in terms of the order parameters for these binary mixtures (X is the concentration of CrM for CnM-CrM and the concentration of CnM for CnM-CO). From this expansion, we obtain the phase line equations for the transitions among t...
Investigating the malleability of RNA aptamers
İlgü, Müslüm; Lamm, Monica H.; Nilsen-Hamilton, Marit (Elsevier BV, 2013-09-15)
Aptamers are short, single-stranded nucleic acids with structures that frequently change upon ligand binding and are sensitive to the ionic environment. To achieve facile application of aptamers in controlling cellular activities, a better understanding is needed of aptamer ligand binding parameters, structures, intramolecular mobilities and how these structures adapt to different ionic environments with consequent effects on their ligand binding characteristics. Here we discuss the integration of biochemic...
Measurement of the inelastic proton-proton cross-section at root s=7 TeV with the ATLAS detector
Aad, G.; et. al. (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2011-09-01)
The dependence of the rate of proton-proton interactions on the centre-of-mass collision energy, root s, is of fundamental importance for both hadron collider physics and particle astrophysics. The dependence cannot yet be calculated from first principles; therefore, experimental measurements are needed. Here we present the first measurement of the inelastic proton-proton interaction cross-section at a centre-of-mass energy, root s, of 7 TeV using the ATLAS detector at the Large Hadron Collider. Events are ...

D.; Marco-Rius, Irene; Kurhanewicz, John; Vigneron, Daniel B.; Çıkrıkcı, Sevil; Aydoğdu, Ayça; Reh, Moritz; Pravdivtsev, Andrey N.; Hoevener, Jan-Bernd; Blanchard, John W.; Wu, Teng; Budker, Dmitry; Pines, Alexander (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2019-07-05)
Zero- to ultralow-field (ZULF) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is an emerging tool for precision chemical analysis. In this work, we study dynamic processes and investigate the influence of chemical exchange on ZULF NMR J-spectra. We develop a computational approach that allows quantitative calculation of J-spectra in the presence of chemical exchange and apply it to study aqueous solutions of [N-15]ammonium ((NH4+)-N-15) as a model system. We show that pH-dependent chemical exchange substantially affects ...

Clostridium acetobutylicum is a bacterial species that ferments sugar to a mixture of organic solvents (acetone, butanol and ethanol). This protocol delineates a methodology to combine solventogenic clostridial fermentation and chemical catalysis via extractive fermentation for the production of biofuel blendstocks. Extractive fermentation of C. acetobutylicum is operated in fed-batch mode with a concentrated feed solution (500 grams per liter glucose and 50 grams per liter yeast extract) for 60 h, producin...
