Crystal Chemistry of High-Tc Superconducting Copper Oxides by Professor Dr. Bernard Raveau, Professor Dr. Claude Michel,

By Professor Dr. Bernard Raveau, Professor Dr. Claude Michel, Professor Dr. Maryvonne Hervieu, Professor Dr. Daniel Groult (auth.)

The contemporary discovery of high-temperature superconductivity in copper­ established oxides is an occasion of significant value not just with appreciate to the actual phenomenon itself but additionally since it certainly exhibits that good kingdom chemistry, and particularly the crystal chemistry of oxides, has an important position within the synthesis and figuring out of recent fabrics for destiny appli­ cations. the various papers released within the box of excessive Tc supercon­ ductors within the final 5 years show that the nice complexity of those fabrics necessitates a detailed collaboration among physicists and strong country chemists. This e-book is predicated to a wide volume on our adventure of the crystal chemistry of copper oxides, which we've been learning within the laboratory for greater than twelve years, however it additionally summarizes the most effects that have been got for those compounds within the final 5 years in relation to their marvelous superconducting homes. now we have eager about the struc­ ture, chemical bonding and nonstoichiometry of those fabrics, taking into account that redox reactions are the foremost to the optimization in their supercon­ ducting houses, because of the significance of the combined valence of copper and its Jahn-Teller influence. we now have additionally drawn on stories of prolonged defects through high-resolution electron microscopy and on their construction through ir­ radiation effects.

Macrophage-derived Chemokine by Chantry D., Gray P.W.

By Chantry D., Gray P.W.

Macrophage-derived chcmokine (MDC) is a member oi the CC ehemokine family members. The receptor for MDC is CCR4, a G protein-coupled receptor expressed totally on the TH2 subset of T lymphocytes and on constructing T cells in the thymus. in keeping with this expression trend, MDC is a chemoattrac-lanl for those mobile kinds. MDC is additionally chemotactic for IL-2-activated NK cells, dendritic cells, and monocytes, even if no matter if those results are mediated via CCR4 or one other, as but to be pointed out receptor, is doubtful. In vivo, MDC seems to be all in favour of the migration of constructing T cells within the thymus, and of detailed subsets of mature T cells within the outer edge. within the context of pathophysiology, MDC could play an immense position within the migration of TH2 cells in the course of allergic irritation, and of С los angeles + T cells to the outside in stipulations resembling psoriasis.
