Kinetic modelling using PAN

Posted on 28. October, 2011.

A kinetic model described in the latest issue of Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism expresses the oxidation of maleic acid in solution using a novel modified PAN catalyst/hydrogen peroxide system. This model provides a superior fit to the experimental data compared to kinetic constants from the literature.

Chemistry of B-norsteroidal 6-ketones and their relatives

Posted on 28. October, 2011.

The preparation and reactions of B-norsteroidal 6-ketones and their relatives are reviewed in the context of the stability of the A/B and B/C ring junctions and the stereochemistry of the addition reactions to the carbonyl group. This review is a sequel to a previous article on the reactions of B-norsteroidal 4- and 5-enes (C. Uyanik and J.R. Hanson, J. Chem. Res, 2009, 713.)

Ionic liquids - an overview

Posted on 21. October, 2011.

As well as exhibiting catalytic activity for many chemical reactions, ionic liquids are used as replacements for conventional toxic solvents. They can be used to prevent chemical pollution. In Science Progress 94(3), Professor Harry Jenkins highlights the main characteristics of ionic liquids, presenting them in a form readily assimilated by newcomers to this area of research. An extensive glossary is featured as well as a chronological list which charts the major areas of development.

Crack tips on microscopy of oxidation

Posted on 21. October, 2011.

Time-dependent intergranular crack-growth in Ni-base superalloys is well known, however, there is a lack of understanding of the detailed effects of oxygen interaction in the crack tips.  The methodology of accessing and analysing this region is described in Materials at High Temperatures 28(4) which highlights some of the issues arising from  Microscopy of Oxidation 8.
