      A low-temperature reaction route for synthesis of LiTiyV3−0.8yO8 is reported in this work. The LiTiyV3−0.8yO8 powders with high specific capacity have been synthesized via a peroxide sol-gel method, which have good morphology, small particle size, and good particle size distribution. LiTi0.04V2.968O8 shows a better electrochemical performance, which exhibits both the highest initial discharge capacity (348.9 mAh·g−1) and the best cycle performance. The effects of Ti substitute for V on the structure, morphology, and electrochemical properties of samples were studied in detail.

      The global and local electrophilicity patterns have been evaluated on a series of cycloaddition reactions to assess the reaction pathways (NDAC/IEDDAC) using the absolute scale of electrophilicity proposed by Parr et al. Regional electrophilicity at the active sites of the reagents involved in Diels-Alder processes has been described on a quantitative basis using local electrophilicity index i.e. Fukui function. Good qualitative/quantitative comparison was found between molecular energy gaps and global electronic parameters, which have been employed to assess the cycloaddition pathways successfully.

      The FTIR data collected from 36 normal SD rats, 60 1,2-DMH- induced SD rats, and 44 second generation rats of those induced rats were first preprocessed. Continuous wavelet transform was used in the analysis of FTIR. The detail signal, L1, is almost all the high frequency signal. Difference between a few adjacent detail signals are little. L5, L10 and L15 are sensitive to the change of the absorption frequency in the spectra. They have strong response to three feature peaks of the original signal. So the detail signals of the three scales were used as feature vector space. 12 feature variants were extracted using continuous wavelet analysis. Based on BPNN classification, all spectra were classified into two categoriesnormal and abnormal ones. The accuracy values of identifying normal, dysplastic, early carcinoma, and advanced carcinoma were 100%, 95%, 97.5%, and 100%, respectively.
