Red-legged Partridges Go Wild

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

In Tuscany, the red-legged partridge became extinct at the beginning of the 20th century. Attempts to re-establish this wild populations using farm reared birds have proved difficult. New research reported in Avian Biology Research suggests that natural rearing may be an important tool for improving the success of partridge reintroduction.

Detoxification of Cyanide

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

The extraction of gold and silver from minerals and concentrates with cyanide is a long established hydrometallurgy process. However, the resulting industrial effluents contain high contents of free cyanide which are highly toxic. Detoxification techniques described in the latest Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability using titanium dioxide and a hydrocyclone sparger with chlorine dioxide produce excellent results.

Efficient Odorant Synthesis

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

2-Nonen-4-olide occurs naturally in the volatile components of various foods and plant extracts, such as stewed beef/vegetable gravy,  sunflower oil,  Chinese white salted noodles watermelon, potato crisps,  lard cured with spices and aromatic herbs,  mushrooms, French fries, and flue-cured tobacco. It has an oily, coconut-like, and rancid odour. A simple, efficient and low cost synthesis of this odorant is reported in the August issue of Journal of Chemical Research.

Free Energies of Electron Transfer Reactions

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

Determination of the reaction and reorganization free energies that control the rate of electron transfer are considered in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism. The main difficulty is the lack of knowledge of the properties in the interfacial region where the reaction occurs. This review deals with procedures for obtaining these two free energies from experimental data corresponding to electron transfer reactions under restricted geometry conditions in which one or both reactants are bound to some receptor such as micelles, cyclodextrins, and polymers.

Can Solar Fuels Avert A Petroleum Fuel Crisis?

Posted on 20. September, 2012.

The world population uses vast amounts of energy mainly obtained from fossil fuels. Renewable energy from all sources amounts to just above 1% of the total required. In his latest current commentary for Science Progress, Chris Rhodes shows how by capturing even a small amount of the solar radiation striking the top of the earth’s atmosphere, the imminent energy crisis could be averted and carbon emissions dramatically reduced.
