Now available on Fast Track: Oganesson: a most unusual ‘inert gas’

Posted on 18. May, 2018.

Oganesson, with the symbol Og, is the artificially prepared (i.e. ‘man-made’) elementwith atomic number 118, previously known as eka-radon or Uuo (‘ununoctium’), and recently ‘blessed’ with an official name by IUPAC3. Atoms of the element were first produced using the U400 cyclotron at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna, Russia, via a heavy-ion fusion reaction utilising collision of a 4820Ca beam with a 24998Cf target.

Metal accumulation and physiological responses induced by copper and cadmium in Lemna gibba L. minor and Spirodela polyrhiza

Posted on 4. July, 2013.

Aquatic plants such as duckweeds and pondweeds accumulate toxic heavy metals and other pollutants. Hence they are use for biological monitoring and removal of toxic metals from water. An article in Chemical Speciation and Bioavailability considers the physiological effects induced by copper and cadmium in these plants.

Peak phosphorus - peak food? The need to close the phosphorus cycle

Posted on 4. July, 2013.

The peak in the world production of phosphorus has been predicted to occur in 2033, based on world reserves of rock phosphate (URR) reckoned at around 24,000 million tonnes (Mt), with around 18,000 Mt remaining. This figure was reckoned-up to 71,000 Mt, by the USGS, in 2012, but a production maximum during the present century is still highly probable.

The formation of squaramic acids and squaryl diamides by the reaction of squaric acid with alkyl isocyanides

Posted on 4. July, 2013.

The reaction between squaric acid with one equivalent of alkyl isocyanides such as t-butyl isocyanide, cyclohexyl isocyanide and n-butyl isocyanide in ethanol at room temperature after 3h afforded the corresponding squaramic acid derivatives.
