Perspectives on “Nest Construction and Function 2015”

Posted on 18. April, 2016.

Back in September 2012 Charles Deeming organised the first conference on nest construction and function, which was held at the University of Lincoln (Deeming, 2012). Even before the meeting was over he was being asked when the next meeting would be held. 


A combined quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics study on nitrogen oxide adsorption/dissociation on a tungsten oxide surface

Posted on 1. May, 2015.

The release of chemical pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2), into the atmosphere is a major source of acid rain and photochemical smog. Finding methods to control and eliminate these pollutants (NOx) from the troposphere is obviously of great interest and as such, the development of NOx gas sensors for environmental monitoring is desirable.


The double four-component Ugi reaction between squaramic or squaramide acids with alkyl isocyanides, amines and aromatic aldehydes  

Posted on 28. April, 2015.

Squaramides have been used as linkers for bioconjugation, as pharmacophores in medicinal chemistry possessing various biological activities such as kinase inhibition, CXCR2 or vitronectin receptor modulation, and potassium channel blockade.

Posted on 28. April, 2015.

The Journal of Chemical Research is a monthly journal which has a broad international authorship and publishes research papers and reviews in all branches of experimental chemistry. Established in 1977 as a joint venture by the British, French and German chemical societies it maintains the high standards set by the founding societies.

Endangered Avian Species Captive Propagation: An Overview of Functions and Techniques - Free Article

Posted on 24. April, 2015.

Birds species, like plants and other animals are facing an unprecedented decline. About 11% of bird species are threatened with extinction. Captive breeding as a conservation tool can be used as a substitute for wild populations in research and education, to provide demographic and genetic reservoirs for reinforcing or founding wild populations, and as a last resort for species that have no immediate opportunity for survival in nature.


Humans and uniqueness

Posted on 24. April, 2015.

A defining force in the shaping of human identity is a person’s need to feel special and different from others. Psychologists term this motivation Need for Uniqueness (NfU). 


Do wild Red-legged Partridges (Alectoris rufa) use feeders? An investigation of their feeding patterns using camera trapping

Posted on 23. April, 2015.

The Red-legged Partridge (Alectoris rufa) is a native gamebird of the Iberian Peninsula, France, Italy and after successful introductions is also present in the UK. In the last decades, a general decline in wild populations has been reported, mainly attributed to loss of habitat, high hunting pressure and absence of proper game management.


Cleavage of carbofuran and carbofuranderivatives in micellar aggregates

Posted on 22. April, 2015.

Historically, based on carbamic acid, a large family of carbamate pesticides have been developed, and are also widely employed as insecticides. In 1988, Goto et al. reported the first synthesis of carbofuran, and also described the biological activity of various amino sulfenyl derivatives of methylcarbamate. Later, the synthesis of several procarbofurans was reported by Gaset et al. These derivatives present a substitution in the nitrogen proton by different organic groups.
