A review on reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons with the most abundant atmospheric chemical fragments: theoretical and experimental data

Posted on 28. November, 2017.

Aerosols are ubiquitous in the atmosphere and have strong effects on climate and public health due to the reactions of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) compounds in air. Over the last decade, study of the reactions of PAHs and their derivatives in the atmosphere has become key to finding an effective way to decrease the impact of this spontaneous reaction and so reduce air pollution.

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.

Permanganate oxidation of GABA

Posted on 8. July, 2011.

Permanganate oxidation is featured heavily in Progress in Reaction Kinetics and Mechanism 36(2). The permanganate oxidation of GABA is a novel method for the synthesis of a valuable pyrrolidone skeleton. Using spectrophotometrical analysis, evidence is also given for delayed autocatalytic behaviour in the permangatae-oxidative catalysed condensation reaction of L-proline to a diketopiperazine.

Mechanism of the Osmium(VIII) - An Analysis

Posted on 12. November, 2010.

An excess dose of fursemide in the gastrointestinal system causes irritation, vomiting, diarrhoea, constipation, etc. An overdose also acts on the central nervous system, leading to headache, blurred vision, vertigo, dizziness, hearing loss, etc. In spite of such adverse effects and its diuretic property, it is exploited most commonly in horses to prevent bleeding during racing.
