  • Publication number: 20230325404
    Abstract: A method for executing a query on a target database against the most recent source data is disclosed. The method comprises maintaining linked—i.e., at least partially synchronized—databases comprising a source and a target database. The method comprises receiving a direct query against a table in the target database, the query comprising a request for using the most recent source data and requesting by the target database from the source database a status about latest data regarding the table. Upon the status indicating that data in the table do not correspond to the most recent data, the method comprises waiting up to a predefined time period for the most recent data of the table to be synchronized from the source database to the target database, and upon the data of the table not being synchronized within the predefined time period, the method comprises issuing a timeout signal.

  • Publication number: 20200243230
    Abstract: Ferromagnetic nanoparticles which are converted from paramagnetic, antiferromagnetic, ferrimagnetic or weak ferromagnetic nanoparticles by incorporation of a dopant, the dopant having a concentration less than 0.5%. Major changes occur in the magnetic properties of the host material. A weak paramagnetic material such as Mn3O4 is been converted to a ferromagnetic material that has a Curie point beyond 700° C. and shows almost temperature independent coercivity and magnetic moment. These ferromagnetic nanoparticles can be used as contrast agent, as a vehicle for targeted drug delivery, high temperature magnets, high density magnets, magnetic circuits and many more devices utilizing local interaction of the magnetic field.

  • Publication number: 20190152796
    Abstract: A method for producing stable copper(II) hydroxide. The method comprises the treatment of a copper metal powder in an acidic aqueous solution containing acetic acid in the pH range less than 3.0 and at temperature below 30 ° C. under stirring conditions. To this acidic solution an alkali metal hydroxide solution is added to raise the pH above 7.0 to form copper(II) hydroxide. The method also comprises preparation of copper(II) hydroxide by treating the copper salts water solution with an alkali metal hydroxide solution in the pH range 7.0 to 12. To improve the stability of the copper(II) hydroxide prepared according to all the said method, a small amount of alkali or alkaline metal gluconate can be added to the suspension before or after the reaction.
