Pyrolysis of trifluoromethane over activated carbon: role of the surface oxygen groups

Posted on 12. May, 2014.

Trifluoromethane (CHF3, HFC-23) is the major byproduct during the manufacture of HCFC-22 (CHClF2) which is one of the key feedstocks for the production of various materials, such as PTFE, PVDF, refrigerants, fire extinguishing agents and foams.


Free for the next 7 days - Chemical synthetic biology

Posted on 10. May, 2014.

The new and fashionable term synthetic biology (SB) is used mostly to indicate a field that is aimed at synthesising biological structures or life forms in the laboratory which do not exist in nature; this is based on the engineering principles of standardisation, modularisation and characterisation, coupled to systematic design.


The evolutionary ecology of nest construction: insight from recent fish studies

Posted on 9. May, 2014.

Nests are built by a wide variety of animals as functional receptacles for developing eggs and offspring, and they play a critical role in the reproductive biology of many species. Traditionally, research on the ecology and evolution of nest building and construction behaviour has focused primarily on birds, and avian studies have dominated the literature. However, as researchers working on non-bird models have realised the importance of nest construction in evolutionary ecology, the number of studies published on the nesting behaviour of nonbird taxa has increased.


Influences of natural zeolite on speciation of heavy metals during rotary drum composting of green waste

Posted on 9. May, 2014.

The water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is a free floating aquatic weed originating in the Amazon in South America and has been considered as the most noxious plant species in the world.


Synthesis of 24(28)-methylene-1α-hydroxyvitamin D3, a novel vitamin D3 analogue

Posted on 8. May, 2014.

In healthy humans, vitamin D3 which is produced from 7-dehydrocholesterol by UV exposure on skin surface, undergoes two metabolic oxidations to afford the physiologically active form of vitamin D3 (1α, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D3, calcitriol).
