Radiolabelling measurements of free radicals derived from aromatic volatile organic compounds adsorbed in zeolite nanomaterials to and above saturation loadings

Posted on 10. November, 2011.

Benzene, para-xylene and mesitylene were adsorbed into silicalite, Na – mordenite, Na – ZSM5 and Li –X zeolites, and studied using the longitudinal field muon spin relaxation (LF-mSRx) technique.

Isolation and identification of antibiotic albaflavenone from Dictyophora indusiata

Posted on 3. November, 2011.

Dictyophora indusiata is a stinkhorn fungus growing in bamboo thickets which has been used as ingredient in Chinese traditional foods for a very long time due to it delicious taste and high nutritional value. It has become a popular ingredient in Chinese cuisine because advances in its cultivation since 1979 have made it cheap and easily available. It has been observed that the broth could stay unspoiled for several days if D. indusiata were added. It has been widely recognised in Chinese folk medicine that D. indusiata has beneficial effects on some diseases, such as cough, inflammation, diarrhoea and bacterial enteritis. The chemical components and antibacterial activity of extracts of D. indusiata have been reported previously, but the components which have antibacterial activity are still unknown.

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.

The distribution and bioavailability of Cd and Zn in cultivated soil of Henan Province

Posted on 28. October, 2011.

With continuing population growth and rapid economic development of China, the environmental quality of rural soil is becoming more and more important with regard to human health. A study reported in Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability assesses the spatial changes of Cd and Zn in the surface soil in the Henan Province cultivated area.

Creep-Fatigue Assessment

Posted on 28. October, 2011.

The problems of assessing creep-fatigue interaction in power plant steels are reviewed in the latest issue of Materials at High Temperatures. Stuart Holdsworth describes how defect-free or defect assessment procedures may be employed depending on component materials.

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.
