Free from the archives - One-pot synthesis of 2-amino-4-aryl-5-oxo-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-4H-1-benzopyran-3-carbonitriles in aqueous media

Posted on 5. March, 2015.

The selective manipulation of one functional group in the presence of other(s) using nontoxic chemicals in economically viable and environmentally benign conditions is a formidable task for synthetic organic chemists. There is a growing interest in carrying out synthetic transformations in aqueous media.

Trophic niche and feeding strategy of the White Stork (Ciconia ciconia) during different phases of the breeding season

Posted on 5. March, 2015.

Food supply is one of the ecological factors that influence life-history traits, population sizes and community structure in birds. Indeed, understanding both the ecological continuity of animal species and their ecological niches is greatly dependent on food restriction and its variations in quality and quantity.

A QM/MM study of NO oxidation on the nanocrystalline surface of tungsten oxide

Posted on 5. March, 2015.

Nitrogen oxides play a major role in air pollution, particularly in the creation of acid rain and photochemical smog. Among the methods that can be used to capture or eliminate these pollutants are adsorption on the surfaces of metal oxide semiconductors (MOSs) and followed by conversion into other materials.

The transition from iron starvation to iron sufficiency as an important step in the progression of infection

Posted on 4. March, 2015.

Iron is an essential micronutrient for microbial life. At the start of an infection the host environment will normally restrict available iron, and innate immune responses will aim to further reduce iron, thus inhibiting growth of potential pathogens.

An improved synthesis of apigenin

Posted on 4. March, 2015.

Flavonoids are a group of common phenolic plant pigments composed of a C6–C3–C6 backbone which occur widely in higher plants and exhibit a broad spectrum of interesting biological activities including anticancer, antioxidant, neuroprotective and antihypertensive activities. Apigenin (4′,5,7-trihydroxyflavone) is a flavone which is abundantly present in common fruits, vegetables and plant-derived beverages (e.g. tea and wine), which has anti-inflammatory, free radical scavenging and anticancer effects.

Effect of diluent and storage time on sperm characteristics of rooster insemination doses

Posted on 3. March, 2015.

The increasing use of artificial insemination (AI) in the poultry industry emphasises the need for the distribution of good quality sperm. The assessment of semen quality characteristics of poultry birds gives an excellent indicator of their reproductive potential and has been reported to be a major determinant of fertility and subsequent hatchability of eggs.
