Now available on Fast Track: Fabricating nano-sized BiVO4/InVO4/g-C3N4 photocatalysts for efficient degradation of Acid Blue 92 azo dye

Posted on 15. June, 2018.

Photocatalysis using semiconductors has received considerable interest in both the scientific and engineering areas. Especially, metal oxide semiconductor photocatalysts have been widely studied for environmental applications such as cleaning of air and the removal of hazardous compounds from wastewater. Metal vanadates are a notable category of inorganic nanomaterials that have received attention due to their wide applications and many researchers has been interested in the synthesis of metal vanadates of manganese, iron, etc.

Kinetic and mechanistic aspects of ligand substitution on cis- diaqua (cis-1,2-diaminocyclohexane)platinum(II) with three glycine-containing dipeptides

Posted on 7. August, 2014.

The discovery of cisplatin as an anticancer agent marks the beginning of the upsurge of interest in the use of metal complexes in cancer chemotherapy. However, cisplatin has a narrow spectrum of activity, and its clinical use is limited by undesirable side effects, including nephrotoxicity, ototoxicity, neurotoxicity, nausea, vomiting, and myelosuppression.

The mechanism of the reaction of the Tollens reagent - Download for free during the next 24 hours

Posted on 6. August, 2014.

The Tollens test for aldehydes has been used for over 100 years but no reason has been given for adding sodium hydroxide to the silver nitrate before the solution is cleared with ammonia. In this paper, a mechanism is proposed which explains why the addition of alkali makes the test much more sensitive.

Cronobacter: an emergent pathogen causing meningitis to neonates through their feeds

Posted on 4. August, 2014.

The recognition of Cronobacter as a public health concern was raised when powdered infant formula (PIF) was linked to several neonatal meningitis outbreaks. It is an opportunistic pathogen that causes necrotising enterocolitis, infantile septicaemia, and meningitis which carries a high mortality rate among neonates.

Plasticity in nest placement of the Turtle Dove (Streptopelia turtur): experimental evidence from Moroccan agro-ecosystems

Posted on 31. July, 2014.

When selecting a nest placement, birds need to balance several requirements and risks. Indeed, nest location is considered the main adaptive response against nest predation pressure, climatic conditions and human disturbances.

Computational mechanistic study of the gas phase oxidation of methanol with ozone

Posted on 31. July, 2014.

One important aim of modern combustion chemistry is to design and analyse possible new forms of non-petroleum-based fuel or fuel components for use in combustion engines.Methanol can be considered as one of the simplest oxygenated hydrocarbon compounds in this regard.
