Abstract

The present invention concerns a vacuum insulating glazing unit (VIG) (1) comprising a planar area and comprising a first glass pane (1a) and a second glass pane (1b), k discrete spacers (Pi) distributed over the planar area and positioned between the first and second glass panes and maintaining a distance between the first and the second glass panes, wherein k ? ? and k > 8, and a peripheral bonding seal (4) hermetically sealing the distance between the first and second glass panes defining an internal volume, V, enclosed between the first and second glass panes and bounded by an inner perimeter of the peripheral bonding seal defining the planar area, the inner perimeter having a substantially rectangular geometry extending over a length, L, along a longitudinal axis, X1, and over a width, W, along a transverse axis, X2, normal to the longitudinal axis, X1, with L= W, wherein the inner volume is under vacuum. Instead of being arranged according to a regular array, the discrete spacers are arranged according to the stress field lines of the combination of atmospheric pressure stresses, sp, applied by the atmospheric pressure on the surface of the vacuum insulating glazing, and of thermal stresses, st, resulting from a temperature difference between exterior and interior environments. This novel distribution of discrete spacers confers the VIG a strong mechanical resistance thanks to their concentrations at strategic regions, with a low thermal conductivity, thanks to the lower number of discrete spacers used.

Abstract

An object of the present invention is to find a new pharmaceutical application of a prostaglandin F2.alpha. derivative. It was found that the prostaglandin F2.alpha. derivative inhibits glutamate-induced retinal neuronal cell death in a concentration-dependent manner in rat fetal retinal neuronal cells, in other words, the prostaglandin F2.alpha. derivative acts directly on the retinal neuronal cells and exhibits a protective effect. Accordingly, the prostaglandin F2.alpha. derivative is useful for the prevention or treatment of an eye disease associated with retinal neuronal cell damage.

Abstract

An electrolyte membrane which comprises a cation exchange membrane made of a polymer having cation exchange groups and contains cerium ions is used as an electrolyte membrane for a polymer electrolyte fuel cell. in a case where the cation exchange membrane has sulfonic acid groups, the sulfonic acid groups are ion-exchanged, for example, with cerium ions so that cerium ions are contained preferably in an amount of from 0.3 to 20% of -SO3- groups contained in the cation exchange membrane. A membrane for a polymer electrolyte fuel cell capable of power generation in high energy efficiency, having high power generation performance regardless of the dew point of the feed gas and capable of stable power generation over a long period of time, can be provided.

Abstract

An electrolyte membrane is prepared from a liquid composition comprising at least one member selected from the group consisting of trivalent cerium, tetravalent cerium, bivalent manganese and trivalent manganese; and a polymer with a cation-exchange group. The liquid composition is preferably one containing water, a carbonate of cerium or manganese, and a polymer with a cation-exchange group, and a cast film thereof is used as an electrolyte membrane to prepare a membrane-electrode assembly. The present invention successfully provides a membrane-electrode assembly for polymer electrolyte fuel cells being capable of generating the electric power in high energy efficiency, having high power generation performance regardless of the dew point of the feed gas, and being capable of stably generating the electric power over a long period of time.
