Density functional theoretical study on the mechanism of adsorption of 2-chlorophenol from water using γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles

Posted on 18. May, 2015.

The removal of aromatic pollutants from water is of great importance environmentally and industrially. 2-chlorophenol and phenol-like compounds are categorised as persistent pollutants and many techniques have been presented for the removal of phenolic pollutants from water. Among the most important of such techniques is the application of nanoparticles of magnetic metals such as Fe2O3

Assessment of Aspergillus spp. in a modern broiler breeder structure

Posted on 8. May, 2015.

Aspergillus spp. are ubiquitous opportunistic saprophytic fungi that are major respiratory pathogens in birds, which can cause significant economic losses in chickens and turkeys, with mortality, morbidity, increase feed conversion, decrease production rates and slaughter condemnations.

Fossil fuel use is limited by climate, if not by resources, and “Peak Soil”.

Posted on 1. May, 2015.

Originally the Earth was barren rock, but was transformed into a vibrant living planet by soil. So where did the soil come from and why is it so important? What is it that gives soil its amazing life-generating force?

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.
