Maaji, S, Adetiloye V, Ayoola O.  2007.  Normal pelvic dimensions of Nigerian women in Ile Ife by computed tomographic pelvimetry, 2007/07/01. 14:109-13. Abstract

This study was undertaken to determine the baseline pelvic parameters as assessed by computed tomographic (CT) pelvimetry in Nigerian women and to compare the pelvic parameters with those derived from other studies.The study was carried out in pregnant women at 36 weeks and above referred for routine CT-pelvimetry.
A total of 100 pregnant women at 36 weeks and above referred to the Radiology Department were prospectively recruited for this study, they included women with breech presentation after 36 weeks gestation and women who either had previous lower segment caesarean section for reasons other than confirmed or suspected cephalopelvic disproportion (CPD). The subjects' ages ranged from 24-45 years.
The mean anteroposterior and transverse inlet pelvic diameters were 11.6 cm +/-SD 0.9 and 12.0 +/-SD 0.8 cm respectively. The range of anteroposterior and transverse diameters of the inlet were 8.4 cm-14.0 cm and 10-13.8 cm respectively. The mean outlet diameter was 11.5 cm +/-SD 1.2 cm. The mean bispinous diameter of the pelvis was 10.6 cm +/-SD 0.9 cm. There was significant positive correlation between anteroposterior diameter inlet and outlet as well as the bispinous diameters (1st, 4th - 6th pairs) p<0.001.
here are significant variations in pelvic parameters of Nigerian women when compared with values from other countries of the world. These significant variations are anthropometric in origin.

Mahmoud, B, Mirghni A, Oyedotun K, Fasakin O, Manyala N.  2021.  Nanoplatelets ammonium nickel-cobalt phosphate graphene foam composite as novel electrode material for hybrid supercapacitors, 2021/06/01. 883:160897. Abstract

Nanoplatelets NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O and NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O/GF composites were synthesized through a hydrothermal approach and used as actively positive electrode for hybrid supercapacitor. Electrochemical performances of the samples were carried out in both the 3and 2-electrode measurements in 1 M KOH solution. The composite NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O/GF exhibited an improved specific capacity of 111 mAh g⁻¹ over the pristine NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O material with a 100 mAh g⁻¹, which was obtained at 0.5 Ag⁻¹. Moreover, an assembled hybrid device NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O/GF//AC revealed maximum specific energy of 47 Wh kg⁻¹ and specific power of 468 W/kg at 0.5 Ag⁻¹. The device was subjected to a long-term stability test of over 10,000 GCD cycles and could retain about 70% of its initial capacity and also proved a columbic efficiency of 99.8% at 10.0 A g⁻¹. Interestingly, the device could preserve a 1.14 V of its initial potential window of 1.4 V after being subjected to a 72 h self-discharge test, showing an efficiency of 81.4%. Based on the results discussed on this work, the NH4(NiCo)PO4·H2O/GF composite could be an excellent candidate as future energy storage material, specifically supercapacitors.

Mahmoud, B, Mirghni AA, Fasakin O, Oyedotun K, Manyala N.  2020.  Bullet-like microstructured nickel ammonium phosphate/graphene foam composite as positive electrode for asymmetric supercapacitors, 2020/04/23. 10:16349-16360. Abstract

Unique microstructured nickel ammonium phosphate Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O and Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O/GF composite were successfully synthesized through the hydrothermal method with different graphene foam (GF) mass loading of 30, 60 and 90 mg as a positive electrode for asymmetric supercapacitors. The crystal structure, vibrational mode, texture and morphology of the samples were studied with X-ray diffraction (XRD), Raman spectroscopy, Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) surface area analysis and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The prepared materials were tested in both 3-and 2-electrode measurements using 6 M KOH electrolyte. The composite material Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O/60 mg exhibited a remarkable gravimetric capacity of 52 mA h g⁻¹, higher than the 34 mA h g⁻¹ obtained for the Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O pristine sample, both at 0.5 A g⁻¹. For the fabrication of the asymmetric device, activated carbon from pepper seed (ppAC) was used as a negative electrode while Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O/60 mg GF was adopted as the positive electrode. The Ni(NH4)2(PO3)4·4H2O/60 mg GF//ppAC asymmetric device delivered a specific energy of 52 Wh kg⁻¹ with an equivalent specific power of 861 W kg⁻¹ at 1.0 A g⁻¹ within a potential range of 0.0–1.5 V. Moreover, the asymmetric device displayed a capacity retention of about 76% for over 10 000 cycles at a high specific current of 10.0 A g⁻¹.

Mahmoud, B, Mirghni AA, Oyedotun K, Momodu D, Fasakin O, Manyala N.  2019.  Synthesis of cobalt phosphate-graphene foam material via co-precipitation approach for a positive electrode of an asymmetric supercapacitors device, 2019/12/01. 818:153332. Abstract

Cobalt phosphate Co3(PO4)2 and Cobalt phosphate/graphene foam composites Co3(PO4)2/GF were synthesized via a co-precipitation technique. Co3(PO4)2/GF composite was synthesized from Co3(PO4)2 with addition of different graphene foam (GF) mass loading to optimize the appropriate amount of GF which effectively synergized its properties with those of the phosphate materials. The structural, morphological and chemical bonding nature of the synthesized products were characterized extensively using various microscopy and spectroscopy techniques to confirm the successful integration of conductive GF with Co3(PO4)2 grains. The electrochemical properties of the prepared materials were tested in 1 M KOH electrolyte by cyclic voltammetry (CV), galvanostatic charge-discharge (GCD), and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS). Co3(PO4)2/20 mg GF composite exhibited a remarkable gravimetric capacity of 57 mAh g⁻¹ higher than Co3(PO4)2 (21 mAh g⁻¹) at 0.5 A g⁻¹ in a half-cell configuration. An asymmetric device was fabricated using Co3(PO4)2/20 mg GF as a positive electrode) with biomass-derived activated carbon from pepper seed (ppAC) as negative electrode, which delivered a specific energy of 52 Wh kg⁻¹ with an equivalent power of 847 W kg⁻¹ at 1 A g⁻¹. The asymmetric device exhibited a capacity retention of 80% over 10 000 cycles at 10 A g⁻¹. The study demonstrates an adoption of a facile route for obtaining composite materials and interfaced with biomass-derived porous structures for assembly of a stable asymmetric device.

Mapayi, B, Oladimeji BY, Akinsulore A, Olutayo A, Ibigbami O.  2014.  Personality Profiles and Psychopathology Among Students Exposed to Dating Violence at the Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, 2014/05/20. 30 Abstract

Dating violence is a complex phenomenon, and researchers continue to examine a wide range of precursors and contributing factors. Evidence indicates that violent intimate partners may be more likely to have personality disorders and dependency and attachment problems compared with non-violent ones. The aim of the present study is to evaluate the interaction between the personality profiles, pattern of psychopathology, and dating violence among university students in Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife. The study utilized a cross-sectional survey design with a total of 400 students selected using a multistage sampling technique. They completed the Sociodemographic Data Schedule, the Conflict Tactic Scale (CTS), Eysenck Personality Questionnaire (EPQ), and the General Health Questionnaire (GHQ). Univariate analysis was used to determine the prevalence of dating violence, psychopathology, and personality traits, and these were expressed in percentages. Association at bivariate level was assessed using chi-square and at multivariate level using logistic regression and correlations as was appropriate depending on the type of variable. The age of the respondents ranged between 18 and 35 years (M = 21.44, SD = 2.99). The prevalence of dating violence in the previous 12 months was 34%, and the prevalence of psychopathology was 15%. In the logistic regression model constructed, it was found that the significant predictors of dating violence were the psychoticism and neuroticism personality traits, which were also found to be positive correlates of psychopathology. The magnitude of dating violence found in this study is comparable with those found in other countries of the world. This study found an association between dating violence and personality in the study population and also between certain personality traits and psychopathology. The personality profiles of students could affect their interpersonal relationships greatly, and this fact must feature in dating violence prevention programs.

Maphiri, V, Rutavi G, Sylla N, Adewinbi S, Fasakin O, Man-Yala N.  2021.  Novel Thermally Reduced Graphene Oxide Microsupercapacitor Fabricated via Mask-Free AxiDraw Direct Writing, 2021/07/27. 11:1909. Abstract

We demonstrate a simple method to fabricate all solid state, thermally reduced Graphene Oxide (TRGO) microsupercapacitors (µ-SCs) prepared using the atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD) and a mask-free axiDraw sketching apparatus. The Fourier transform in-frared spectroscopy (FTIR) shows the extermination of oxygen functional groups as the reducing temperature (RT) increases, while the Raman shows the presence of the defect and graphitic peaks. The electrochemical performance of the µ-SCs showed cyclic voltammetry (CV) potential window of 0-0.8 V at various scan rates of 5-1000 mVs −1 with a rectangular shape, depicting characteristics of electric double layer capacitor (EDLC) behavior. The µ-SC with 14 cm −2 (number of digits per unit area) showed a 46% increment in capacitance from that of 6 cm −2 , which is also higher than the µ-SCs with 22 and 26 cm −2. The TRGO-500 exhibits volumetric energy and power density of 14.61 mW h cm −3 and 142.67 mW cm −3 , respectively. The electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) showed the decrease in the equivalent series resistance (ESR) as a function of RT due to reduction of the resistive functional groups present in the sample. Bode plot showed a phase angel of −85° for the TRGO-500 µ-SC device. The electrochemical performance of the µ-SC devices can be tuned by varying the RT, number of digits per unity area, and connection configuration (parallel or series).
