A series of Ag2S/Ag2WO4 composite microrods with different Ag2S contents (10–50 wt%) were synthesized via a facile successive precipitation route. The texture and optical properties of the pure Ag2S, Ag2WO4, and Ag2S/Ag2WO4 composites were intensively characterized by some physicochemical characterizations like N2 physical adsorption, x-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy, Ultraviolet–visible spectroscopy, x‐ray photoelectron spectroscopy, photoluminescence spectroscopy, and photocurrent measurements. Under visible light irradiation, different organic dyes, e.g., methylene blue and methyl orange dye were applied to evaluate the photocatalytic performances by their photocatalytic degradation reactions. The Ag2S/Ag2WO4 composite microrods exhibited superior photocatalytic activity and stability. The high crystallinity of Ag2WO4 and improved texture properties of Ag2S/Ag2WO4 resulted in their enhanced photocatalytic property. More importantly, the Ag2S/Ag2WO4 heterojunctions with matching electronic band structures obviously enhanced the separation of photo‐generated electrons and holes, further promoting the photocatalytic reaction.
To increase our understanding of the relationships of trunk fat mass (FMtrunk) and four anthropometric indices in Chinese males, 1090 males aged 20–40 years were randomly recruited from the city of Changsha, China. Waist circumference (WC) and hip circumference (HC) were measured using standardized equipment, and three other anthropometric indices of BMI, waist:hip ratio (WHR) and conicity index (CoI) were calculated using weight, height, HC and WC. FMtrunk (in kg) was measured using a Hologic QDR 4500 W dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scanner. There was an increasing trend of FMtrunk, %FMtrunk (percentage of FMtrunk) and BMI, WC, WHR, CoI in successively older age groups (e.g. the mean FMtrunk values were 4·63 (sd 2·58), 5·39 (sd 2·74), 5·93 (sd 2·82), 6·57 (sd 2·94) in four 5-year age groups, respectively). FMtrunk and %FMtrunk were significantly correlated with four anthropometric indices with the Pearson's correlation coefficients ranging from 0·25 to 0·86. Principal component analysis was performed to form three principal components that interpreted over 99·5% of the total variation of four related anthropometric indices in all age groups, with over 65% of the total variation accounted by principal component 1. Multiple regression analyses showed that three principal components explained a greater variance (R2 70·0–80·1%) in FMtrunk than did BMI or WC alone (R2 57·8–74·1%). The present results suggest that there is an increasing trend of FMtrunk and four anthropometric indices in successively older age groups; that age has important effects on the relationships of FMtrunk and studied anthropometric indices; and that the accuracy of predicting FMtrunk using four anthropometric indices is higher than using BMI or WC alone.
