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.

Shooting can affect your health!

Posted on 3. October, 2011.

Lead, a toxic heavy metal, is found in high concentrations in shooting range soils due to the abrasion and weathering of bullets accumulated over the years.  This can adversely impact the environment through leaching into groundwater or runoff into streams, lakes and rivers. In the latest issue of Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability a group from the Soil and Water Science Department, University of Florida describe how the conversion of metallic lead to carbonates may aid natural attenuation of lead in shooting range soils.

The preparation and reactions of B-norsteroidal 6-ketones and their relatives

Posted on 30. September, 2011.

B-norsteroids are involved in the the apoptopic activity of the marine sterol orostonal and the anti-tubercular activity of the parguesterols, and are used in the synthesis of hormone analogues.  The preparation and reactivity of the heavily substituted cyclopentanone B-norsteroidal 6-ketones, which have formed precursors for the synthesis of ring B-azasteroids, are reviewed by Cavit Uyanik and James R. Hanson in the September issue of Journal of Chemical Research. They suggest further areas for investigation of these modified steroids.
