    Based on wave model and wave diffraction theory, the wave potential solutions to solitary wave diffraction by arc-shaped bottom-mounted porous breakwater are derived by applying the eigenfunction expansion approach, and accordingly the horizontal wave loads on breakwater and maximum solitary wave free surfaces are analytically calculated. The evaluating results demonstrate that the porosity of lateral surface of arc-shaped breakwater may lead in an obvious reduction in wave loads on breakwater and changes the distribution of maximum solitary wave free surfaces. Furthermore, the variation of incident wave angle, nonlinear influence parameter of wave, sea water condition, and breakwater structure geometry condition may have some influence on solitary wave effects on breakwater. Compared with small amplitude wave theory, it is known that in certain shallow water conditions the results of maximum dimensionless wave forces and wave free surfaces from solitary wave theory are obviously larger than those predicted by small amplitude wave theory for shallow water, it denotes that solitary wave theory can reflect shallow water wave nonlinear effects.

    ZnS thin buffer layers were prepared by chemical bath deposition (CBD) process. The structures and optical properties of the films were studied systematically based on the chemical reaction principle. The results demonstrated that the thickness of ZnS film increased with the increase of deposition time, while the optical transmittance and the band gap decreased. The minimum Eg was determined to be 3.74 eV. The surface roughness of the as-deposited films remained a low level, of which value remained between 6~9 nm. As the concentration of the reactant increased, the optical transmittance increased first and then decreased. When the concentration of the reactants were too high or too low, the deposition reaction shifted to homogeneous reactions and impurities emerged on the surface of the films, resulting in inhomogeneous films. The optimized concentrations of ZnSO4, SC(NH2)2 and NH3·H2O were 0.03, 0.4, 4.0 mol/L, respectively. The single-phased ZnS films were homogeneous and compact with the optical transmittance over 70% at the wavelength of 450~900 nm.

    The title reaction mechanism was explored by using the B3LYP density functional theory, the MP2 method of perturbation theory and smd model method of self consistent reaction field theory. The study of reaction channels showed that there are two channels a, b in the chiral transition reaction, and in the one the proton is transferred from one side to the other of chiral carbon with only the amino as a bridge, in the other with carbonyl and amino N as the bridge successively. The molecular structure analysis showed that the sevenring structure in the transition state aTS2·2H2O is almost coplanar and each hydrogen bond angles of the seven-ring structure approach straight angle. Calculations of potential energy surface pointed out that the channel a is the dominant reaction channel and the free energy barrier of the rate-determining step is 249.5 kJ·mol-1, which is caused by the transition state with proton migration from chiral carbon to amino nitrogen. Moreover, with consideration of two water molecules as H transfer media and with inclusion of the water solvation effect of the continuous medium model,, the free energy barrier of the rate-determining step is reduced to 113.2 kJ·mol-1 and the reaction rate constant is 5.85×10-8 s-1, and the water solvation effect enables the energy barrier of the amino heterogeneous reaction increased from 13.4 kJ·mol-1to 19.3 kJ·mol-1. Therefore, water solvation effect can hinder the heterogeneous reaction of non proton transfer, and the interaction of the catalytic action of water molecules and water solvation effect can cooperatively reduce the proton transfer reaction energy barrier to a large degree.

    Triptolide (TP), the predominant active component of the traditional Chinese herb Tripterygium wilfordii Hook f. (TWHF), has been shown to exert multiple pharmacological effects. However, the clinical applications of TP are limited by its severe adverse effects, especially hepatotoxicity. The aim of this study was to investigate the potential protective effects of Notch1/NF-E2-related factor 2 (Nrf2) signaling on TP-induced hepatotoxicity. In the present study, TP caused oxidative stress and cellular apoptosis in Chang liver cells, which were accompanied by inhibition of the Notch1 activation signal. In addition, the activation of Notch1 by Jagged1 protected against TP-induced cytotoxicity, whereas the inhibition of Notch1 by DAPT or Notch1 siRNA increased the damage. We also found that activation of Notch1 upregulated Nrf2 and heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) expression and that the inhibition of Notch1 resulted in the opposite effect. Interestingly, a reduction in Nrf2 almost eliminated the protective effect conferred by Jagged1, which indicated that Nrf2 was essential in the protection against TP-induced hepatotoxicity through the activation of Notch1. Overall, these results suggested that Notch1 signaling ameliorated the detrimental effects of TP by decreasing oxidative stress and downregulating apoptosis, and that the Nrf2 signaling pathway was a key downstream mediator of this effect.

    In order to understand the urbanization process, logistic regression is introduced to mine the conversion rules of urban development. The rules are input into cellular automata (CA) model to simulate the urban development process of Foshan city. Experiments show that urbanization process is the core part in the development of Foshan city. The source of urban land comes from farmland, forests and other types of land (including orchards and ponds, etc.). In the simulation result, the overall accuracy and Kappa coefficient can reach 93.7% and 0.86, respectively. By using landscape indices, Foshan city will become more and more aggregative with the maximum patch index increase. It was found that there are 191 km2 of farmland changed into urban land in the scenarios of urban prior development, accounting for 27% of all the farmland (706 km2). In the scenarios of farmland protection and forest protection, farmland and forest can be better protected, but urban expansion will occupy other types of land use to solve the problem of lacking enough land use for urban expansion. It is found that the spatial variables have remarkable corridor effect on urbanization by analyzing the relationship between proximity variables and urban land uses.

    Yunfu pyrite deposit is a large-scaled deposit,located in the southern section of Qinzhou-Hangzhou Metallogenetic Belt. Ore textures in the Yunfu pyrite deposit can be classified into four types, including the banded, disseminated, massive and veiny. The specimens and microscopic observation show that banded ores suffered the subsequent crumpled structures, the massive ores are composed of two different particle sizes of pyrite, and the pyrite vein cut across all above-mentioned ores. The SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) coupled with EDS (EnergyDisperseSpectroscopy) measurements are carried out to yield the micro-fabric characteristics of all four types of pyrite. The pyrite grains in the banded ores present as cube euhedral crystal with the growth layer developed, implying that the crystal grows accompanying with multiple layer accumulation. The granularity of pyrite in the disseminated ores is commonly bigger than in banded ores, but the growth layer is inferior to the latter. The pyrite grains in the massive ores contact closely with conchoidal fracture developed on the surface, and therefore their crystal edges are difficult to be distinguished. The particle size of pyrite in the veiny ores is the largest among the four types of ores. The crystal shape presents as hypidiomorphic-xenomorphic implicating the limited growth space. It is conclude that the Yunfu pyrite deposit was developed with two main stages of mineralization, including an earlier exhalative sedimentary mineralization overprinted by subsequence metamorphism and deformation. The exhalative sedimentary stage is presented by the formation of banded and disseminated pyrites, whereas the later stage of hydrothermal superposition formatting is characterized by massive and veiny pyrites.

    Field experiments were conducted to study the effect of biodegradable film on the soil properties (moisture, temperature, and nutrients) and the growth of Prunus armeniaca (base diameter, new shoots, and leaf) during April to June in Tulufan, Xinjiang. The results showed that: ① the application of biodegradable film brought a significant effect on soil moisture and temperature, but not on soil nutrients. Soil water increased by 3.3%, 7.08% and 12.6% at the depth of 0<H≤20 cm, 20<H≤40 cm and 40<H≤60 cm from April to June. The average temperature of soil at the depth of 0<H≤60 cm in April increased by 1.5 ℃, while they relatively dropped at the depth of 0<H≤20 cm in May and June when the air temperature was high. Film coating can benefit soil fertility, but the soil of experimental zone was still relatively poor. ② Film coating can significantly accelerate the growth of Prunus armeniaca, e.g. the trees have stronger stems (the average basal diameter of Ⅰ, Ⅱ, Ⅲ diameter class increased by 11.86%, 9.84% and 11.80%), larger leaves (the median dimension was more than 6 ×4cm), and heavier leaves (one hundred leave mass increased by 111.69%, 5.11% and 17.56%, respectively, for Ⅰ,Ⅱ, Ⅲ diameter class). ③ The full biodegradable membrane can regulate the soil moisture and temperature, and hence benefits the growth of Prunus armeniaca. The biodegradable film should be applied generally to improve the water resources utilization and agricultural production efficiency in the apricot cultivation.
