Magpie Parents Appear To Induce Mortality Of Unwanted Chicks

Posted on 24. June, 2010.

According to a study published in Journal of Avian Biology, magpies favour some of their nestlings over others but in a strange and unique manner. Dr Sang-im Lee and her colleagues at Seoul National University and Ewha University, South Korea, examined the mortality of magpie nestlings and found 'rarer-sex disadvantage'. This means that sons die out more when more daughters are present in the nest, and daughters die more when more sons are in the nest.

Organotin Compounds In Technology And Industry

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

Organotin compounds find a bigger range of technological and industrial applications than the organic compounds of any other metal. Many of these applications involve catalysis or anticatalysis, often in polymer chemistry, and they have an importance out of all proportion to the tonnage of tin which is used. This article reviews the present standing of the non-biological applications of organostannanes, with an emphasis on the mechanisms of the reactions which are involved.

Intergranular Corrosion Of High Temperature Alloys In Molten Fluoride Salts

Posted on 17. June, 2010.

A number of high temperature Ni-based and Fe –Ni-based alloys, were evaluated for their corrosion resistance in molten FLiNaK salt at 850oC for 500 h, in graphite crucibles. Based on this test, the corrosion performance of the various alloys may be ranked as follows (in the order of increasing corrosion resistance): Haynes-230, Inconel-617, Incoloy-800H, Hastelloy-X, Hastelloy-N, and Ni-201.
