Effect of organic amendments on phytoavailability of nickel and growth of berseem(Trifolium alexandrinum) under nickel contaminated soil conditions

Posted on 28. March, 2014.

Since the green revolution, man-induced activities have redistributed many heavy metals from the earth’s crust to all environmental compartments. Therefore, environmental contamination by heavy metals has become a growing environmental risk at a global scale.

On the chemistry of inorganic free radicals in cloud water.

Posted on 27. March, 2014.

Cloud water droplets are formed by the condensation of water on to aerosol particles, known as cloud condensation nuclei, which occurs when the relative humidity in an ascending mass of air exceeds the saturation level due to adiabatic cooling. The chemical composition of cloud droplets has been the subject of several field studies in which rainwater is collected and analysed [1,2].

From the Science Reviews archive: UV radiation-induced enterobacterial responses, other processes that influence UV tolerance and likely environmental significance

Posted on 25. March, 2014.

The ability of enterobacteria to become UV-tolerant is important because such tolerance may enable organisms to resist irradiation in the environment, in water treatment, in shell-fish, in stages of food processing, and at locations in the domestic, commercial and hospital environment.

Non-classical signalling of growth hormone in the chick neural retina?

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

Signalling normally involves the interaction of a ligand with its receptor in target sites. 
This brief review focuses on the possibility that Growth Hormone (GH) in the neural retina of early chick embryos acts non-classically or via 'non-classical' GH-receptors.

Synthesis and antitumour activity of certain pyridol[2,3-d] pyrimidine and 1,8-naphthyridine derivatives

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

In an effort to establish new candidates with improved anticancer activity, we report here the synthesis of various series of 2,4,5,7-tetrasubstituted pyrido[2,3-d ]pyrimidines and their related isosteres substituted 1,8-naphthyridines. The cytotoxic activity of the newly synthesised compounds against human breast cancer cell line, MCF7 was investigated.

From the Science Reviews archive: Effect of HCl addition and temperature on the hetrogeneous chemistry and photochemistry of ClONO2 adsorbed on ice crystals.

Posted on 24. March, 2014.

The depletion of ozone over the Antarctic stratosphere, particularly in the beginning of springtime, has been the subject of a great deal of attention during the last decade. This phenomenon has been also recently observed in the Arctic stratosphere especially during the unusually cold 1995-96 winter.
