    Full Text Available Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA refers to a family of polyunsaturated fatty acids, being represented by a group of isomers of linoleic acid called conjugated for having a double bound after a simple bound. Among its isomers, trans-10,cis-12 and cis-9, cis-12 CLA stand out. These isomers can lead to different effects on the body: anticarcinogenic, antidiabetogenic, antiatherogenesis and positive body composition alteration. The objective of this review is to describe their mechanisms of action, effects on body composition, on plasmatic lipoproteins and supplementation. Studies about CLA supplementation show its capacity of reducing fat percentage, body mass and of promoting an improvement in lipid metabolism. One of the adverse effects attributed to one of the isomers is insulin resistance by body fat redistribution. Limitations in the scientific models used in CLA researches make impossible to draw conclusions about the action of this fatty acid on human metabolism.El ácido linoleico conjugado (CLA es un ácido graso que pertenece al grupo de los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados, representado por el conjunto de isómeros del ácido linoleico, que son denominados conjugados porque poseen una doble conexión tras una conexión simple. De entre sus isómeros se distinguen el trans-10,cis-12 y cis-9, cis-12 CLA. Estos isómeros son capaces de promover efectos distintos en el organismo: anticarcinogénesis, antidiabetogénesis, antiaterogénesis y cambios de composición corporal. El objetivo de esta revisión es describir sus mecanismos de acción, los efectos en las lipoproteínas plasmáticas, en la composición corporal y la suplementación. Los estudios acerca de la suplementación del CLA demuestran su capacidad de reducir el porcentaje de grasa, el peso corporal, y de mejorar el metabolismo lipídico. Sin embargo, unos de los efectos contrarios relacionados a uno de sus isómeros es la resistencia a la insulina a través de la redistribución de

    Full Text Available O autor considera necessário o conjugado anatômico artério-venoso representado pela artéria carótida interna e seio cavernoso, bem como o plexo venoso carotídeo que reveste a carótida interna dentro do canal carotídeo da porção petrosa do osso temporal. Julga que, além de proteger a parede vascular arterial nas hipertensões arteriais súbitas, possa contribuir no mecanismo de controle e regulação do fluxo sanguíneo carotídeo, por considerar diferentes as condições fisiológicas do seio cavernoso em relação aos demais seios venosos durais e o sistema venoso endocraniano; consequente de sua constituição cavernosa, diferente dos demais canais sanguíneos venosos, com fisiollogia venosa própria e funções diferentes. Procura assemelhá-los aos demais distritos do organismo em que existem plexos cavernosos nos quais a tensão venosa chega a grandes proporções, comparada às demais regiões em que não existe esta constituição morfológica. Estabelece a correlação resultante ao mecanismo de resistência cérebro-vascular do qual considera participar, diferindo dos demais seios durais conjugado artéria carotida-beio cavernoso e veias encefálicas. Ainda valoriza o sifão carotídeo fisiologicamente e julga que o mesmo participa da hemodinâmica quando o paciente se encontra caído (em plano horizontal com hipotensão arterial, favorecendo a chegada sanguínea ao cérebro, evitando a anóxia e descerebração consequente dentro de determinados limites, sendo mais um meio de defesa do organismo.

  14. Cross linkage studies with the membranes of the vesicular stomatitis virus using radioactive 4-acido and 5-acido palmitic acid

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In the study described here the spatial arrangement of lipids and proteins in the VS virus was investigated on the basis of the covalent cross linkage technique. The formation of such cross linkages is brought about by the action of photosensitive acidosubstituted lipids, which permit acido functions to be introduced into a membrane in a previously defined position. Subsequently, photolysis helps to trigger the generation of radioactive nitrenes that react with the proteins and lipids in their immediate vicinity in a direct and non-selective way. The findings revealed by this study have raised questions as to the possibility of lipid-protein and lipid-lipid interactions, which is also discussed. (orig./MG)

    Full Text Available Las vacunas conjugadas que consisten en polisacáridos bacterianos unidos a través de un enlace covalente a una proteína portadora, han tenido un gran impacto en los esquemas de vacunación infantil, disminuyendo de forma dramática la incidencia de infecciones bacterianas. En el caso de Streptococcus pneumoniae, a pesar de que se han descrito más de 90 serotipos basados en la estructura de las cápsulas polisacarídicas y que al menos 23 tienen una importancia clínica demostrada, solo un número limitado de siete, o más recientemente 10 y 13, están incluidos en las vacunas conjugadas licenciadas. Por otra parte, la necesidad creciente de estas vacunas en el mundo requiere la incorporación de nuevos productores que se enfrentan a una elevada complejidad tecnológica, pues en todo el procedimiento de conjugación no se pueden afectar las características estructurales por las que el polisacárido es reconocido inmunológicamente. Este trabajo implementó un procedimiento de conjugación para el polisacárido de la cápsula de Streptococcus pneumoniae serotipo 14. El procedimiento comprendió la fragmentación, oxidación peryódica y posterior conjugación del polisacárido a anatoxina tetánica o diftérica. Cada intermedio fue caracterizado por métodos físico-químicos. En todas las reacciones se obtuvieron rendimientos superiores al 50%. Los conjugados generaron altos títulos de anticuerpos específicos de tipo IgG y memoria inmunológica. Se concluyó que el procedimiento permitió la obtención de conjugados inmunogénicos de serotipo 14.

  6. Respiration gating and Bloch fitting improve pH measurements with acidoCEST MRI in an ovarian orthotopic tumor model

    Science.gov (United States)

    Jones, Kyle M.; Randtke, Edward A.; Howison, Christine M.; Pagel, Mark D.

    2016-03-01

    We have developed a MRI method that can measure extracellular pH in tumor tissues, known as acidoCEST MRI. This method relies on the detection of Chemical Exchange Saturation Transfer (CEST) of iopamidol, an FDA-approved CT contrast agent that has two CEST signals. A log10 ratio of the two CEST signals is linearly correlated with pH, but independent of agent concentration, endogenous T1 relaxation time, and B1 inhomogeneity. Therefore, detecting both CEST effects of iopamidol during in vivo studies can be used to accurately measure the extracellular pH in tumor tissues. Past in vivo studies using acidoCEST MRI have suffered from respiration artifacts in orthotopic and lung tumor models that have corrupted pH measurements. In addition, the non-linear fitting method used to analyze results is unreliable as it is subject to over-fitting especially with noisy CEST spectra. To improve the technique, we have recently developed a respiration gated CEST MRI pulse sequence that has greatly reduced motion artifacts, and we have included both a prescan and post scan to remove endogenous CEST effects. In addition, we fit the results by parameterizing the contrast of the exogenous agent with respect to pH via the Bloch equations modified for chemical exchange, which is less subject to over-fitting than the non-linear method. These advances in the acidoCEST MRI technique and analysis methods have made pH measurements more reliable, especially in areas of the body subject to respiratory motion.

MÉTODOS: para este fim, utilizamos retrospectivamente o banco de dados do Hospital das Clínicas da Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto da Universidade de São Paulo, obtendo o número de pares de gêmeos conjugados, sua frequência, classificação, gênero, forma de resolução da gravidez, tentativa de separação cirúrgica, diagnóstico pré-natal e sobrevida. RESULTADOS: detectamos 14 pares de gêmeos conjugados (1/22.284 nascidos vivos e 1/90 pares de gêmeos nascidos vivos nascidos neste período (seis masculinos, sete femininos e um com sexo indeterminado. O diagnóstico pré-natal foi realizado em todos os gêmeos, e os nascimentos ocorreram por cesariana. A separação só foi possível em um dos pares, que sobrevivem em ótimas condições de saúde após oito anos. Dos 13 restantes, dez morreram no mesmo dia do nascimento e três sobreviveram apenas alguns meses (menos de um ano. CONCLUSÃO: apesar de este estudo evidenciar um número anormalmente alto de gêmeos conjugados, trata-se de um fenômeno raro, de prognóstico perinatal reservado e dependente do compartilhamento de órgãos entre os gêmeos e malformações associadas, em especial relacionadas ao coração dos fetos. Devido ao mau prognóstico dos pares e do comprometimento reprodutivo materno pela necessidade de realização de cesariana com grandes incisões uterinas, propomos que, com base nestes números, seja solicitada a interrupção precoce destas gestações, como ocorre com outras doenças fetais incompatíveis com a sobrevida extrauterina. Desta forma, a confirmação diagnóstica e a resolução da gravidez de gêmeos conjugados deve ser realizada em centro de atendimento terciário tanto obstétrico quanto perinatal, e

Due to differences in their microstructure, chemical composition and residual stress level, weld regions exhibited different responses under H{sub 2}S corrosion. Base metal exhibited the highest corrosion rate (CR) and the most cathodic corrosion potential. [Spanish] Se estudio el comportamiento ante la corrosion de las regiones de soldadura de un cordon realizado por arco metalico con gas (GMAW) sobre un acero grado API X52 mediante las tecnicas de polarizacion potencio dinamica y resistencia a la polarizacion (LPR). Los experimentos se realizaron utilizando salmuera con 300 ppm de acido sulfhidrico (H{sub 2}S) y salmuera libre de H{sub 2}S como electrolitos. Debido a las diferencias en su microestructura, composicion quimica y el nivel de esfuerzos residuales, las regiones de soldadura mostraron diferentes respuestas a la corrosion por H{sub 2}S. El metal base exhibio la velocidad de corrosion (VC) mas alta y el potencial de corrosion mas catodico.

    Full Text Available Conjugated fatty acid (CFA is the general term to describe the positional and geometric isomers of polyunsaturated fatty acids with conjugated double bonds. The CFAs of linoleic acid (CLAs are found naturally in foods derived from ruminant animals, meat, or dairy products. The CFAs of α-linolenic acid (CLNAs are found exclusively in various types of seed oils of plants. There are many investigations to assess the effects to health from CFAs consumption, which have been associated with physiological processes that are involved with non transmissible chronic diseases such as cancer, atherosclerosis, inflammation, and obesity. Conclusive studies about the CFAs effects in the body are still scarce and further research about their participation in physiological processes are necessary. This review aimed to discuss the influence of conjugated fatty acids on physiological processes in animal organism.Ácido graxo conjugado (AGC é o termo geral usado para descrever os isômeros posicionais e geométricos dos ácidos graxos poliinsaturados com duplas ligações conjugadas. Os AGCs do ácido linoléico (ALCs são encontrados naturalmente em alimentos derivados de animais ruminantes, carnes e produtos lácteos. Os AGCs do ácido α-linolênico (ALNCs são encontrados exclusivamente em óleos de sementes de vários tipos de plantas. Desenvolvem-se muitas investigações com o objetivo de avaliar os efeitos do consumo de AGCs para a saúde, já que estes têm sido associados a processos fisiológicos relacionados com doenças crônicas não transmissíveis como câncer, aterosclerose, inflamação e obesidade. Estudos conclusivos sobre os efeitos dos AGCs no organismo humano ainda são raros e mais pesquisas sobre sua atuação em processos fisiológicos são necessárias. O objetivo desta revisão é discutir a influência dos ácidos graxos conjugados sobre os processos fisiológicos.

    The charge of lead-acid batteries (LAB), as in any other type of batteries, consists of replacing the energy consumed during the discharge. Nevertheless, as no physical or chemical process is good enough to totality recharge a battery, it is necessary to supply to it more than the 100% of the energy demanded during its discharge. A critical factor to make a suitable load control of the batteries is to determine its own state of load. That is to say, to have an efficient load control, it is necessary to count on means that allow to accurately determining the residual capacity of the battery to deliver load. This one is the one of the aspects of greater interest in the research centers around world. For this reason, in this work it was pretended to develop a calculation algorithm of the state of load of batteries based on a fuzzy-neural network that could calculate the state of load without using the battery current as an input. This is because one of the main problems for the designers of battery load controllers is the correct supervision of the current that circulates around the system in all the rank of operation of the same one because the sensors do not have a linear behavior. [Spanish] La recarga de baterias plomo-acido (BPA), como cualquier otro tipo de baterias, consiste en reponer la energia consumida durante la descarga. Sin embargo, como ningun proceso fisico o quimico es lo bastante eficiente para recargar a totalidad una bateria, es necesario suministrarle mas del 100% de la energia demandada durante su descarga. Un factor critico para realizar un adecuado control de carga de las baterias, es determinar su propio estado de carga. Es decir, para tener un control de carga eficiente, es necesario contar con un medio que permita determinar con precision la capacidad remanente de la bateria para entregar carga. Este es uno de los aspectos de mayor interes en los centros de investigacion alrededor el mundo. Por tal razon, en este trabajo se propuso

    Full Text Available Supplementation with conjugated linoleic acid may reduce fat body mass and increase lean body mass in various species. Some studies have demonstrated that conjugated linoleic acid reduces body fat, in part, by inhibiting the activity of lipoprotein lipase in adipocytes. The objective of this work was to study the effect of conjugated linoleic acid supplementation on lipoprotein lipase activity in 3T3-L1 adipocyte culture. 3T3-L1 adipocytes received linoleic acid (group C or conjugated linoleic acid (group AE, supplemented with AdvantEdge® CLA, and group CO, supplemented with CLA One® in concentrations of 1 mmol/L. Heparin-releasable lipoprotein lipase activity was analyzed by means of a 3T3-L1 adipocyte culture. After 7 days, heparin-releasable lipoprotein lipase activity was lower in the groups AE and CO supplemented with conjugated linoleic acid. These results suggest that one of the mechanisms by which CLA is capable of reducing body fat is by reducing lipoprotein lipase activity.A suplementação com ácido linoléico conjugado pode reduzir a gordura corporal e aumentar a massa magra em diferentes espécies.

    Neutralizing an acidic fluid consists of adding a sodium hydroxide solution to neutralize the H group of acids, therefore increasing the pH. The injection of sodium hydroxide has to be continuous and at a proper depth inside the well to protect against the corrosion of casing and surface equipment. Neutralization is a common practice used in geothermal fields, such as at The Geysers in the US and Miravalles in Costa Rica-places where aggressive fluids cause problems for extracting and using geothermal fluids commercially. A zone surrounding wells H-4, H-16 and H-29 in the northern section of the Los Humeros, Pue., geothermal field, known as the Colapso Central, has shown evidence of aggressively acidic fluids. Several wells drilled in the area had to be repaired, thus plugging and isolating the deepest production zones. Well H-43 was drilled two years ago in the northern zone of the field, and even though it is not located in the aggressive-fluid zone, the well presents mineralogical features possibly indicating the presence of acidic fluids. Therefore, before producing this well it has been proposed we install a neutralization system with general characteristics presented in this paper. The system will prevent corrosion that up to now has prevented exploitation of the deep portion of Colapso Central, helping to develop the field in a more profitable way. [Spanish] Neutralizar un fluido acido consiste en agregarle una solucion de hidroxido de sodio. Esto neutraliza el grupo de acidos H y en consecuencia aumenta el pH. La inyeccion de hidroxido de sodio se realiza de manera continua y a una profundidad adecuada dentro del pozo para proteger a la tuberia y a todo el equipo superficial contra la corrosion. La neutralizacion es una practica comun que se viene realizando en campos como Los Geysers en Estados Unidos y en Miravalles, Costa Rica, donde la presencia de fluidos agresivos causa problemas en la extraccion y aprovechamiento del fluido geotermico con fines

    This work presents the synthesis of the binary compound PdAg and the electrochemical characterization for oxygen reduction reaction (ORR) in acid medium. The catalyst is obtained from the reduction of Pd(NO{sub 3}){sub 2}·2H{sub 2}O and AgNO{sub 3} with NaBH{sub 4} in THF. The synthesized compound was physically characterized with transmission electron microscopy (TEM), sweep electron microscopy (SEM) and x-ray diffraction (XRD) of powder. Electrochemical studies were conducted to determine the catalytic activity and intrinsic properties of the PdAg material for the ORR in acid medium using cyclic voltamperometry (CV), rotary disc electrode (RDE) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) in a solution of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} 0.5 M at 25 degrees Celsius. The electrochemical current-potential responses were compared to those of palladium and platinum. The kinetic results showed an increase in the performance of the bimetallic electrocatalyst containing Ag as compared to pure Pd, but less than that obtained with nanometric Pt. The Tafel slopes obtained are roughly120 mV dec-1, similar to that reported for Pt and Pd and for other Ru-based electrocatalysts.

    The general effects of whole-body gamma -irradiation at a mean absorbed dose of 250 rads were studied simultaneously in the unanaesthetized rabbit for 48 hours. They occurred early, with the following characteristics: arterial blood pressure decreased steadily as early as the 2nd hour and reached its minimum value on the 5th hour with a decrease of about 14%; it remained low during the following two days. Heart rate increased during the first hour, was the highest by the end of the second hour, and resumed normal value on the 24th hour. Internal body temperature increased during the 1st hour and was maximum by the end of the 2nd hour, with a mean increase of 1.2 deg C; hyperthermia steadily decreased between the 4th and the 6th hours and had completely disappeared by the 24th hour. Respiratory alkalosis is shown in the acido-basic balance by a raise of pH, a decrease of PCO/sub 2/ and arterial blood bicarbonates. These various changes seem to indicate a double origin, both central and peripheral. (FR)

    The well H-43 was drilled in Los Humeros Geothermal Field, Pue., in 2007 and 2008. When well production was measured, it was found the well produced acid fluids with high corrosion potential. Then it was decided to try to neutralize the acidity of the H-43 fluids by adding a solution of sodium hydroxide. This is a basic substance used to neutralize mainly the acid groups H+, and the goal was to raise the pH of the fluids to minimize its corrosive features. First sodium hydroxide was injected into the well to protect the casing of 244.4 mm (9 5/8 in) against corrosion and then all the surface installations. It was possible to increase the pH of the well fluid from 5.2 up to 6.8 without altering the steam production, thus demonstrating the neutralization procedure is feasible. The approximate costs of the neutralization tests performed, including equipment for the proposed neutralization system, the neutralizer (NaOH), and drilling the well are about 71.4 million pesos (around 5.5 million USD). We estimate a benefit/cost ratio of 1.5 and a return on investment in five years, considering the income from energy sales at present value. [Spanish] El pozo H-43 fue perforado en el campo de Los Humeros, Pue., en 2007-2008, y al evaluar su produccion se encontro que producia fluidos acidos de alto potencial corrosivo.

Esta es una sustancia basica que neutraliza principalmente los grupos acidos H+, con lo que se buscaba aumentar el pH del fluido lo necesario para reducir al maximo su caracter corrosivo. La inyeccion del hidroxido de sodio se realizo dentro del pozo a fin de proteger de la corrosion a la tuberia de revestimiento de 244.4 mm (9 5/8 pulgadas), y posteriormente a todos los equipos superficiales.

En 1999, la tecnología IgY se aprobó por la Oficina Federal Veterinaria del gobierno suizo como un método alternativo para sustentar el cuidado y bienestar de los animales. Muchas de las publicaciones relacionadas con IgY demuestran las características desde el punto de vista bioquímico de esta inmunoglobulina que la hace tomar ventajas sobre la IgG, entre las que refiere que los complejos inmunes que contienen Acs aviares, no pueden interactuar con los receptores Fc o del complemento sobre las células, por lo que el reemplazamiento de los Acs de mamíferos por sus similares en gallinas pudieran evitar interferencias en muchos ensayos diagnósticos. Este conocimiento ha sido la base objetiva de este trabajo que consistió en la obtención de Acs IgY anti IgG de ratón con elevado grado de pureza, los que fueron conjugados por unión covalente vía grupos amino primarios libres al isotiocianato de fluoresceína (FITC.

    Full Text Available Studies with human beings and animals have shown that dietary conjugated linoleic acid (CLA promotes changes in body structure, markedly, body fat reduction. This research aimed to assess the effect of CLA (60% of conjugated linoleic acid methyl ester, at the proportion of 1:1 of the 9, 11: 10, 12 isomers on changes in body weight, subcutaneous tissue thickness, body fat mass and concentration of serum lipids (triacylglycerols, total cholesterol, LDL and HDL in overweight dogs. Dogs of different breeds weighting 16.85±7.13 assigned in a randomized assay. Two types of diets were offered for 120 days: control (-CLA and test (+CLA, 0.3%. There was no difference between control and test groups considering body weight and serum levels of triacylglycerols, total cholesterol and LDL portion. There was a significant difference between the final and initial results for subcutaneous tissue thickness and body fat mass and for serum concentration of HDL in dogs supplemented with CLA. The addition of 0.3% of CLA in the diet of overweight dogs decreased the fat deposition on subcutaneous tissue and the development of body fat mass but increased blood levels of HDL.Estudos em humanos e animais têm demonstrado que o uso do ácido linoléico conjugado (ALC promove alterações na composição corporal, principalmente reduzindo a deposição de gordura.

    Full Text Available Avaliaram-se o teor de ácido linoléico conjugado (CLA e o perfil de ácidos graxos no músculo e na capa de gordura de novilhos bubalinos alimentados com diferentes fontes de lipídios. Utilizaram-se 12 animais castrados, da raça Murrah, com peso vivo de 306±8kg, submetidos aos tratamentos sem lipídeo adicional, grão de soja e óleo de soja, confinados durante 84 dias. Após o abate a carcaça foi resfriada a 5ºC, durante 24 horas. Foi feita secção entre a nona e a 11ª costelas da meia carcaça direita, de onde se separou músculo e capa de gordura, analisadas as concentrações de CLA e de ácidos graxos, por cromatografia gasosa. O fornecimento de óleo de soja resultou em maior concentração de CLA no músculo e na capa de gordura, e a adição de óleo de soja menores concentrações de ácidos graxos saturados, principalmente os ácidos mirístico e palmítico. Os animais que receberam a dieta com grão de soja integral também apresentaram menor teor de CLA e redução nas concentrações de mirístico e palmítico. Esses efeitos foram observados somente na capa de gordura e em menor intensidade.The effect of different fat sources on fatty acid concentrations in the muscle and in the fat layer of water buffalo steers was studied. Twelve water buffalo steers weighting 306±8kg, fed without additional fat, soybean grain or soybean oil and confined during 84 days were used. The animals were slaughtered after 16-hours-fasting and the carcass was cooled at 5ºC, for 24 hours. A section was extracted between 9th and 11th ribs from the right half carcass and this section was separated in bone, muscle and fat layer. In the last two fractions, the fatty acids, including conjugated linoleic acid (CLA, were quantified by gaseous chromatography. The soybean oil provided higher CLA concentrations in the steers muscle and fat layer. Moreover, the soybean oil inclusion promoted lower saturated fatty acids contents, mainly miristic and palmitic

    Full Text Available Paraquat is a frequently used herbicide in Colombia. Its ingestion produces a severe intoxication with a high lethality. Up to now there is not a successful treatment for it. The purpose of this study was to determine if a conjugated treatment with NAcetylcysteine; A, C, and E vitamins, Propranolol, Colchicine and Furosemide increased the survival of ten paraquat intoxicated patients attended at the San Vicente de Paul University Hospital in Medellín, Colombia, based on the predicted probability of survival, Paraquat plasmatic concentration and clinical assessment. Six patients died because of their intoxication severity, three of them due to multisystemic organic failure, and three from acute respiratory failure. The results had statistical significance, showing a direct proportion between the high plasma levels of paraquat and mortality; and the fact that those with a multiorganic involvement died, despite their low Paraquat plasma levels. Based on clinical data it is possible to conclude that the treatment is useful only for patients with mild to moderate intoxication; there is not an exact correlation between the clinical features and the Paraquat plasma levels; and the clinical features are a very good indicator of the prognosis in Paraquat intoxicated patients. Further experimental and clinical trials are needed. En Colombia se utiliza frecuentemente el Paraquat, herbicida que al ser ingerido en cualquier cantidad produce toxicidad grave y alta mortalidad, sin haberse encontrado un tratamiento eficaz para la recuperación de los intoxicados. El objetivo de este estudio fue establecer si un tratamiento conjugado con N-acetilcisteína, vitamina A, C, E, propranolol, colchicina y furosemida, disminuye la mortalidad en pacientes, basados en la probabilidad de supervivencia, los niveles plasmáticos y el seguimiento clínico.

    Full Text Available A gordura do leite de 12 vacas lactantes 7/8 Holandês-Gir foi utilizada para avaliar o efeito de diferentes dietas sobre o perfil dos ácidos graxos (AG e o conteúdo de ácido linoléico conjugado (CLA no leite. Os tratamentos consistiram de concentrados formulados com milho (MI ou sua total substituição por farelo de trigo (FT ou por polpa cítrica (PC, associados ou não a óleo de soja (0 e 2,25%. A análise cromatográfica indicou que mais de 95% dos ácidos graxos (AG foram recuperados. Não foi verificada interação significativa da presença de óleo e fonte de carboidratos em qualquer variável avaliada, à exceção das concentrações de trans-10 C18:1 e da proporção de trans-10 C18:1 e trans-11 C18:1 nos totais trans- C18:1 do leite. A fonte de carboidrato utilizada não influenciou o perfil de ácidos graxos do leite ou o teor de CLA. A inclusão de óleo de soja aumentou em 35% os AG insaturados do leite e reduziu em 14% os AG saturados, principalmente os de cadeia curta (9,66 vs 7,59 g/100 g e os de cadeia média (51,80 vs 40,86 g/100 g. As dietas com óleo promoveram aumento dos AG de cadeia longa (32,17 vs 46,47 g/100 g, principalmente C18:0 (9,44 vs 13,63 g/100 g, C18:1 (20,28 vs 29,74 g/100 g e C18:2 (2,16 vs 2,92 g/100 g. A concentração de CLA cis-9 trans-11 C18:2 foi aumentada em 230% (0,46 vs 1,06 g/100 g na presença de óleo. A concentração dos AG cis e trans-C18:1 também foi aumentada; trans-11 C18:1 foi o principal isômero trans, embora a concentração de trans-10 C18:1 tenha se elevado de 0,28 para 1,11 g/100 g na presença de óleo, sendo influenciada pela fonte de carboidrato.

    The corrosion of copper in the presence of volatile organic acids is frequent. Thus, for example, it is known that failures by corrosion of the copper tubes take place in the air conditioning equipment, caused by volatile organic acids emitted by oils used in their manufacturing. Another frequent case is the corrosion of copper objects caused by the acids emitted by the materials used in packing, wood and resins, amongst others. This communication presents the corrosion results of copper exposed to 100% relative humidity and different concentrations (10-300ppm) of formic (HCOOH), acetic (CH{sub 3}COOH), propionic (CH{sub 3}CH{sub 2}COOH) and butyric (CH{sub 3}(CH{sub 2}){sub 2}COOH) acid vapours, for short exposure times. the techniques used were gravimetric analysis, scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction (XRD).

    Naphthenic acid corrosion was observed for the first time during the distillation process of some kind of crude oils in 1920. Recent reports about naphthenic acid corrosion have been found in China, India, Venezuela, Eastern Europe, Russia and the USA. In Brazil, heavy and acid crude oil processing is rising. Some brazilian crude oils have TAN around 3,0 mg KOH/g. The presence of relatively high levels of naphthenic acids in crude oils is a bane of petroleum refiners; and more recently, of producers as well, who have reported problems during production with calcium and sodium naphthenate . Essentially, these acids which are found to greater or lesser extent in virtually all crude oils are corrosive and tend to cause equipment failures, lead to high maintenance costs and may pose environmental disposal problems. In order to give these information to PETROBRAS, The Research and Development Center of PETROBRAS (CENPES) has been working in house and with brazilian universities developing analytical technicians to know better molecular structures and distribution of these acids compounds in crude oils. This work presents the actual methods and some results from these developments. (author)

    To determine the influence that has the organic matter of the soil on the uranyl sorption on some solids is necessary to have a detection technique and quantification of uranyl that it is reliable and sufficiently quick in the obtaining of results. For that in this work, it intends to carry out the uranyl quantification in presence of citric acid modifying the Fluorescence induced by UV-Vis radiation technique. Since the uranyl ion is very sensitive to the medium that contains it, (speciation, pH, ionic forces, etc.) it was necessary to develop an analysis technique that stands out the fluorescence of uranyl ion avoiding the out one that produce the organic acids.

    Full Text Available Raman dispersion refers to the dependence of the position of Raman bands on the energy of the exciting radiation. In this work, the three main models currently used to explain this phenomenon (Conjugated Length Model, Amplitude Mode Model and Effective Conjugation Coordinate Model are discussed. Raman dispersion is a consequence of pi electron delocalization, but each model describes in a different way how pi electron delocalization affects the position of Raman bands. Here the features, qualities and problems of the three models are highlighted.

    Full Text Available Se realizan estudios cinéticos de la disolución de hidroboracita en soluciones de ácido clorhídrico y ácido sulfúrico en un reactor tanque agitado discontinuo de acero inoxidable, a presión atmosférica. Se investiga el efecto de la temperatura, el tamaño de partícula, la relación sólido/líquido y la concentración de ácido sobre la velocidad de disolución. Los resultados experimentales permiten observar que la velocidad de disolución aumenta con el incremento de la concentración del ácido y de la temperatura, y disminuye con el aumento del tamaño de partícula y con la relación sólido/líquido. La energía de activación aparente calculada para la disolución de hidroboracita en soluciones de ácido clorhídrico es 44.9 kJ/mol, lo cual no permite inferir cual es la etapa controlante del proceso; mientras que la energía de activación aparente calculada para la disolución de hidroboracita en soluciones de ácido sulfúrico es 14.6 kJ/mol, lo cual permite inferir que el proceso ocurre con control difusivo.The dissolution kinetics of hydroboracite in hydrochloric acid and sulphuric acid solutions was investigated. The experiments were carried out in a steel batch reactor equipped with a mechanical stirrer, at atmospheric pressure. The effect of reaction temperature, particle size, solid/liquid ratio and acid concentration on the dissolution rate was determined. It was found that the dissolution rate increased with increasing the acid concentration and reaction temperature. However, the increase of particle size and solid/liquid ratio decreased the dissolution rate. The activation energy for the hydroboracite dissolution in hydrochloric acid was calculated as 44.9 kJ/mol, which does not permit to know the process controlling step. The activation energy for the hydroboracite dissolution in sulphuric acid was found to be 14.6 kJ/mol, which indicates that the dissolution is a diffusion controlled process.

  4. Effects of acido-basic support properties on the catalytic hydrogenation of acetylene on gold nano-particles

    Manda, Abdullah Ahmed

    Metallic gold nanoparticles supported on gamma-Al2O 3 and magnesia-alumina mixed oxide, with different magnesia content have been prepared by sol-gel method and characterized by different techniques (inductive coupled plasma-mass spectroscopy (ICP-MS), XRD, BET surface area analysis, transmission electron microscopy (TEM), CO2 and NH 3 temperature programmed desorption (TPD), H2 temperature programmed reduction (TPR) and FTIR of adsorbed CO2). Such systems were found to produce catalysts with controllable acidity, varying from catalyst possessing large density of acidic and low density of basic sites, others with acidic and basic sites of equal strength and density, and others with large basic and low acid sites densities, respectively. The catalytic assessment of the generated acidity was carried out using 2-propanol decomposition as a test reaction. The results obtained indicate that the presence of magnesia and reduced gold nanopartilces has imparted the catalysts, 1%Au/4%Mg-Al 2O3 and 1%Au/8%Mg-Al2O3, with significant base-catalytic properties. Acetylene hydrogenation and formation of coke deposits were investigated on a gold catalyst supported on gamma-Al2O3 and gold supported on alumina-magnisia mixed oxide with different gold content; 1%Au/gamma-Al 2O3, 1%Au/15%Mg-Al2O3, 2%Au/15%Mg-Al 2O3 and 4%Au/15%Mg-Al2O3. The effect of the H2/C2H2 ratio was studied over a range of values. The catalytic activity and selectivity towards ethylene and other products were investigated at different reaction temperatures. Acetylene hydrogenation was investigated in the presence and absence of ethylene in stream. It is investigated that the adsorption of the triple bond is preferred over the double bond and during selective catalytic (SCR) of C2H2 the two hydrocarbons do not compete for the same adsorption sites. The deactivation of catalysts was studied by temperature programmed oxidation (TPO). Higher content of coke over 1%Au/Al2O3 catalyst was investigated in contrast to the other catalysts in which the basisity of magnesia-alumina supports could have played an important role in inhibiting the acidic carbon formation by possessing smaller number and/or weaker acid sites.

    Full Text Available In this paper a comprehensive review of trans-fatty acid levels reported in different types of food products is offered. The lowest levels are found in some types of bread (0,1% while the highest levels (up to 40% are found in fried potatoes. Some foods like shortenings, cakes and pastries may have up to 30% of these fatty acids. In milk and dairy products the reported levels are between 1.50% and 5.20%, in meat and derived products between 0.20% and 21,30%; in chocolates from 0% to 15, 70%. The greatest variability is found in margarines, where a variety has been reported from “trans-free products” to products containing up to 34. 30%. In relation to the trans-fatty acid profile, 18:1t is the most abundant fatty acid found in the majority of foods, followed by C18:2t, C18:3t, C18:1t y C14:1t. Due to the negative health effects of these fatty acids, there is a trend to reduce their levels in food products and to include them in the nutritional label of food packaging.En este trabajo se realiza una exhaustiva revisión bibliográfica de los contenidos en grasos trans en alimentos de distinto origen. Los niveles más bajos se encuentran en algunos tipos de pan (0,10%, y los más elevados (hasta 40%, en algunas muestras de patatas fritas. Alimentos tales como shortenings, algunos tipos de galletas y bollería contienen hasta el 30% de dichos ácidos grasos. En las leches y derivados se encuentran cantidades entre 1,50% y 5,20%; en carnes y derivados entre 0,20% y 21,30%; en chocolates desde cantidades nulas hasta 15,70%. La mayor variabilidad se registra en margarinas, entre las que se encuentran desde las “libres de trans”, hasta algunas con 34,30% de estos ácidos grasos. En cuanto a los distintos isómeros, el mayoritario es el C18:1t seguido del C18:2t, C18:3t, C18:1t y C14:1t. Debido a los efectos desfavorables que presentan sobre la salud se observa en los últimos años una tendencia a reducir este tipo de ácidos grasos en algunos alimentos y a incluirlos en el etiquetado nutricional de los alimentos.

    In this work, sulfonated polystyrene compounds (PSS) were synthesized from linear polystyrene (PS). Several methods and experimental conditions were investigated for the sulfonation of PS, producing catalytically active polymeric materials with sulfonation degrees in the range of 5.0-6.2 mmol -SO{sub 3}H/g of dry polymer. The performance of these catalysts was evaluated in transesterification reactions of beef tallow and vegetable oils with ethanol and methanol. For the sake of comparison, the same reaction conditions employed for the PSS catalysts were also used for an Amberlyst 15 (3,7 mmol SO{sub 3}H/g - Aldrich). The PSS samples were shown to be insoluble in the reaction media, leading to conversion rates of 85%, 75% and 80% of the refined soybean oil, beef tallow and crude corn oil in to ethyl esters, respectively, and 94% of the refined soybean oil methyl esters. Amberlyst 15 was studied as an alternative to the process, but its conversion rate to alkyl esters was very low in the employed conditions. These results demonstrated that our synthetic PSS materials have a great potential to act as heterogeneous catalysts for transesterification. (author)

    Full Text Available The fictional Italian author Morelli is throughout the novel “Hopscotch” (1963 Julio Cortázar's alter ego. This character proposes an unoriginal literary hypothesis in chapter 62. There is an allusion to a particular Swedish that ‘is working on a chemical theory of thought.’ The Swedish neuroscientist under analysis is Holger Hydén (1917-2000, by then professor and chairman of the Department of Histology at the University of Göteborg. Hydén, who was the first to work in neurobiological micromethods, is mentioned by Morelli due to his participation in a symposium held at the end of January 1961, in San Francisco. His pioneering work will never be completely forgotten, because Hydén's neuroscientific legacy lives and will live in Cortázar's “Hopscotch”.

    Full Text Available In the present work the antioxidant activity of different solvent (100% methanol, 80% methanol, 100% acetone, 80% acetone extracts of rice bran was evaluated following different antioxidant assays and using sunflower oil as oxidation substrate. The rice bran extracts were evaluated from the estimate of % inhibition of peroxidation in linoleic acid system, total phenolics content (TPC and loss of β-carotene in a linoleic acid system. Additionally, crude concentrated rice bran extracts were added into the sunflower oil samples and stored under ambient conditions. The extent of oxidative deterioration was followed by the measurement of peroxide-, p-anisidine-, conjugated diene-, and triene- values. The general order of antioxidant efficacy of rice bran extracts as determined by various antioxidant assays was 80% methanolic extract > 100% methanolic  extract > 80% acetone extract > 100% acetone extract. The results of the present comprehensive analysis demonstrate that rice bran extracts of the Super Kernel variety indigenous to Pakistan are a viable source of natural antioxidants and might be exploited for functional foods and nutraceutical applications.Se evalúa la actividad antioxidante diferentes extractos (100% metanol, 80% metanol, 100% acetona and 80% acetona de salvado de arroz -var.

Biologically active isomers of CLA ( cis -9, trans -11 (C18:2 and trans- 10, cis- 12 (C18:2 have been reported to have anticarcinogenic, antioxidative and antiatherosclerotic properties. Relatively rich sources of CLA include milk fat-containing foods such as kaymak. Kaymak is a kind of concentrated cream which is traditionally manufactured from buffalo or cow's milk mainly in Turkey . The objective of this study was to determine CLA concentrations during kaymak production. Kaymak was manufactured from cow's milk which was enriched with unfermented cream. Biologically active isomers of CLA in raw milk, cream and kaymak were analyzed using gas chromatography. The method was quick, repeatable and sensitive for the CLA determination of samples. Significant differences were found among the concentrations of both isomer and total CLA during the production process (pNumerosos efectos fisiológicos se atribuyen a los ácidos linoleico conjugados (CLA.

    Full Text Available The conjugated linoleic acid (CLA is a term referred to a mixture of positional and geometrical isomers of linoleic acid with double conjugated bonds in carbon atoms 10 and 12 or 9 and 11 with all of the possible cis and trans combinations. CLA is a naturally occurring substance in food. The major dietary sources of CLA are foods derived from ruminants, e.g. beef and cheese and its content increases when meals are processed. There is ample evidence showing that free radicals and oxidation processes mediated by free radicals play an important role in many pathological situations including cancer and atherosclerosis. Natural and synthetic antioxidants, tolerated by humans, are employed in order to avoid or treat these pathologies. In the present paper, articles evaluating the antioxidant or prooxidant activity of CLA have been revised. Preliminary in vivo and in vitro studies suggested the antioxidant role for CLA, however recent researches have not shown any evidence related to it. New studies have to be carried out in order to get more information on the antioxidant and protective role of CLA in free radical-related degenerative diseases.Se define como conjugado dienoico derivado del ácido linoleico (CLA a una mezcla de isómeros posicionales y geométricos del ácido linoleico con dobles enlaces conjugados en los átomos de carbono 10 y 12 ó 9 y 11 con todas las posibles combinaciones cis y trans. El CLA se encuentra de forma natural en los alimentos, principalmente de origen animal y en particular en las carnes y productos lácteos de rumiantes, y su contenido aumenta por el cocinado o procesado. Actualmente se acepta que los radicales libres y los procesos de oxidación mediados por los mismos juegan un papel importante en muchas situaciones patológicas incluyendo cáncer y aterosclerosis. Por ello la búsqueda de antioxidantes naturales y sintéticos, tolerados por el organismo, que puedan ayudar a prevenir o tratar estas patologías es

    The objective of this study was to develop a quantitative analytical method using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) to determine the antibody concentration in conjunction with bifunctional chelator. Assays were performed using a high performance liquid chromatograph, and the following conditions were used: flow rate of 1 mL / min, 15 min run time, 0.2 M sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.0 as the mobile phase and column of molecular exclusion BioSep SEC S-3000 (300 x 7.8 mm, 5 μM - Phenomenex). The calibration curve was obtained with AcM diluted in 0.2 M sodium phosphate buffer pH 7.0 by serial dilution, yielding the concentrations: 400 μg/mL, 200 μg/mL, 100 μg/mL, 50 μg/mL, 25 μg/mL and 12.5 μg/mL. From the calibration curve calculated the equation of the line and with it the concentration of the immunoconjugate. To ensure the validity of the method accuracy and precision studies were conducted. The accuracy test consisted in the evaluation of 3 samples of known concentration, being this test performed with low concentrations (50 μg/mL), medium (100 μg/mL) and high (200 μg/mL). The precision test consisted of 3 consecutive measurements of one sample of known concentration, subject to the conditions set forth above for the other tests. The correlation coefficient of the standard curve was greater than 97%, the accuracy was satisfactory at low concentrations as well as accuracy. The method was validated by showing it for the accurate and precise determination of the concentration of the immunoconjugate. Furthermore, this assay was found to be extremely important, because using the correct mass of the protein, the radiochemical purity of the radioimmunoconjugate was above 95% in all studies.

    The relationship between energy generation availability and the safety of the nuclear installation which produces this energy assumes a very special characteristic when we are dealing with naval propulsion plants. This relationship has no parallel with commercial nuclear power plants. A ship at sea is in safety only if she could dispose quickly of the energy produced by your nuclear propulsion plant. If the nuclear steam production is not assured, specially due to safety reasons, the ship maneuverability, and so its own safety it is seriously affected. We could then perceive that safety of the nuclear installation is depends on safety of the ship, which depends by its side on the availability of nuclear power. This paper intends to present briefly the main aspects of this relation. (author)

    This study examined the behaviour of a hybrid anaerobic digester in treating pig farm sewage. The experimental model consisted of a 208-litre UASB reactor at the bottom and a 195-litre high-rate sedimentator at the top. The digester was installed on a pig farm and its efficiency in removing volatile (acetic and propionic) fatty acids (VFA) was determined with hydraulic retention time (HTR) as the critical parameter for evaluating the anaerobic system`s performance. The results obtained with the five different HRTs used during the experiment are reported. The highest removal rates were obtained with an HRT of 2.8 days: 98% in the UASB, 28% in the sedimentator and 98% in the digester as a whole. An HRT of 1 day gave VFA removal rates of 40%, 12% and 50% in the UASB reactor sedimentator and digest respectively. (Author) 16 refs.

    In this paper we examined the effects of NTA on the removal of phosphorus process. The biological phosphorus removal process has been studied in the batch tests. This process indicated that there is a perturbation level (DD) of the phosphorus removal which is situated at 40 mg/g MVLSS. A dynamic lab-scale study showed a reduction of the nitrogen and phosphorus removal efficiency, ten days after the introduction of NTA in the influent water in concentration lower than DD. The precipitation of phosphate from wastewater has been examined using the Jar-Test method. The resultants of phosphate precipitation employed iron (III), aluminium (III) or lime did not reveal any differences in the efficiency between the coagulants. The present of NTA did not show a reduction of efficiency in the removal phosphorus process. (Author) 32 refs.

    Carrageenans are a group of natural carbohydrates that are present in the structure of certain varieties of red algae (Rhodophyceae). They are used in emulsions, for syneresis control and to grow up, to promote adhesiveness and dispersion. In the industry of foods they can be used for instance, as thickness and gelling agents, alone or together with other additives. The processing of foods by radiation is increasing considerably, because the efficiency of the process in the industrial decontamination of products. The objective of this work was to study the action of the ascorbic acid as potential radioprotector of the carrageenan against {sup 60} Co gamma radiation effects, using the viscosity as parameter. Samples of commercial carrageenan dissolved at 1,0% were irradiated in the presence or not of ascorbic acid, with doses of 0.0 kGy; 1.0 kGy; 2.5 kGy; 5.0 kGy and 10.0 kGy. After the irradiation the relationships viscosity/dose were established for the temperature of 60 deg C. For the dose of 10.0 kGy a better protecting effect of the ascorbic acid on the carrageenan was seen. The implications of the use of this antioxidant is discussed as a form of minimizing the effect of the radiation in irradiated foods. (author)

    The best choice for feeding the newborn child is breast milk, and when it is not possible to breast feed a baby, the breast milk is replaced by lacteal formula, which is why numerous studies focus their attention on the analysis of the diverse components of baby formula as well as functions in the breast fed baby. Fatty acids are components of great nutritional importance in the fetus and in the newborn child. Nowadays it is estimated that the fetus, during the last trimester of the gestational period and the newborn child, during the first six months of life, need a great contribution of araquidonic and docosahexaenoic acids, due to the fact that the speed of transformation of the predecessors to the hepatic level are not sufficient to cover the metabolic requirements of these fatty acids and it is the mother who contributes them through placental transport during gestation and her milk during lactation. The Organization of Food and Agriculture (FAO), the World Health Organization (WHO), the European Society of Gastroenterology, Hepato logy and Pediatric Nutrition (ESPGHAN) and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that lacteal formula imitate the composition of the breast milk, especially in the fatty polyunsaturated acids (PUFA).

    The 2,4-D herbicide is one of the main pesticides for controlling the bad grass in crops such as the water undergrowth. In Mexico the allowed bound of this pesticide is 0.05 mg/l in water of 2,4-D so it is required to have methods trusts and exacts, which can used in order to detected low concentration of it. In this work we show some for the conventional techniques and for establishing the 2,4-D concentrations. The UV-Vis spectrometer and liquids chromatography due that they are the most common used nowadays. Beside, we introduce a now developed technique, which is based on the neutronic activation analysis. Though use of the UV-Vis spectrometer technique it was possible target the concentrations interval between 1 and 200 mg/l. In the liquids chromatography interval was between 0.1 and 0.9, and by the neutronic activation analysis the interval was between 0.01 and 200 mg/l. (Author)

    Natural radiation is the largest source of radiation exposure to which man is subject. It is formed basically by cosmic radiation and the radionuclides present in the Earth crust, as {sup 40}K and the elements of the decay series of {sup 232}Th and {sup 238}U. Phosphate ores, which constitutes the raw material for the production of phosphoric acid, have a high rate of natural radiation from the decay series of {sup 232}Th and {sup 238}U. Phosphogypsum, which is naturally radioactivity, is a by-product of the production of phosphoric acid by the wet method. For each ton of phosphoric acid it is produced about 4.5 tons of phosphogypsum. This work presents the analysis of samples collected in all stages of the manufacturing process of phosphoric acid, which generates the phosphogypsum. Gamma-ray spectrometry was used to measure the concentration of the elements of the decay series of {sup 232}Th and {sup 238}U. All analyzed samples showed a high concentration of radionuclides, promoting the need for further steps in the process in order to reduce the presence of such radionuclides in the phosphogypsum. The results indicate the radionuclide {sup 238}U has higher contribution in some samples of the intermediate stages of the process. All samples exceeded the international average range of human exposure to terrestrial gamma radiation, which is 0.3 to 1.0 mSv/year. (author)

    The results of a pilot experimental study on the disinfection of treated municipal wastewater to be used in agriculture are presented. A comparative evaluation has been carried out on two parallel pilot-scale disinfection plants using respectively ozone and peracetic acid. After a preliminary sand filtration pilot unit. Both processes showed the capability of meeting the Italian standards for agricultural reuse, but the disinfection process with ozone required much higher doses than the one with peracetic acid, probably because of the higher reactivity of ozone, if compared to peracetic acid with the organic matter present in wastewater. Further research is needed in order to evaluate the efficiency of peracetic acid applied to microorganism different from the bacterial ones and to identify nature and consequences of possible disinfection by products.

    Optimum conditions to run the P{sub Mo} stage for bleaching eucalyptus kraft pulp were 90 deg C, pH 3.5, 2 h, 0.1 kg/t Mo and 5 kg/t H{sub 2}O{sub 2}. The P{sub Mo} stage efficiency increased with decreasing pH (1.5-5.5) and increasing temperature (75-90 deg C), time (2-4 h), and hydrogen peroxide (3-10 kg/t) and molybdenum concentration (0.1-0.4 kg/t). The implementation of the P{sub Mo} stage, as replacement for the A stage, decreased total active chlorine demand of the OAZDP sequence by 6 kg/t to reach 90% ISO, both in laboratory and mill scale. Such practice resulted in decreased bleaching chemical costs to produce fully bleached pulp of 90% ISO. (author)

    It is well known that polymers of N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPA) show lower critical solution temperature (LCST) behavior in water and its gels have a volume phase transition at about 34 degree centigree in water. In this study, we reported the polymerization of NIPA in the presence of N,N methylenebisacrylamide (BIS). Poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) and poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-itaconic acid) hydrogels were obtained by swelling the resultant solid xerogels to equilibrium in water. The effects of monomer composition and concentration of added cross-linking agent on the swelling behavior and mechanical properties of these hydrogels at 22 and 37 degree centigree were investigated, the latter involving measurements of shear in a DMTA system. The storage moduli at 22 degree centigree lay within the range 9.08-5.08 KPa. At a fixed BIS concentration, an increase from 22 to 37 degree centigree resulted in an increase in the shear moduli and the effective crosslinking density (v{sub e}) and a decrease in the interaction parameter hydrogel/water, {chi}.

    Correct determination of the overcharge cut-off voltage is a key point for both the optimal operation and maximum life-time of batteries in photovoltaic (PV) systems. This work presents the results of analysing the influence on charge voltage of different operation conditions, mainly current rate, temperature and state of charge (SOC). From the results obtained we have observed that voltage evolution during a charge process depends on its activation degree of the battery. The battery activation is reached when battery was previously fully charged. So, we can conclude that variation of the charge voltage with time as function of starting point (fully charged or fully discharged) together with current rate and temperature should be taking into account in the battery SOC determination and in the design of charge controllers.

    Glycerin, a byproduct of biodiesel is currently an environmental and economic problem for producers of this renewable fuel in Brazil and in others parts of the world. In order to offer new proposals for recovery, it is used for the manufacture of polyesters used in applications in diverse areas such as construction and automobile industry. This work reports the production of polymer from the mixture of terephthalic and phthalic acid in three different proportions. The polyesters showed good thermal stability, analyzed by TGA and DSC, with an increase proportional to the terephthalic acid content. The X-ray diffraction patterns show that the samples are semi crystalline polymers. The micrographs indicated the presence of a smoother surface in the polyester that has a larger amount of phthalic acid, as reported in the literature. Therefore, the materials showed good thermal properties and morphological characteristics, so it consists in a new alternative to use glycerin. (author)

    Full Text Available In this work we intend to eliminate the idea that laboratory exercises seem like cookbooks. That is, exercises shall be presented as a problematic situation. Based on observation and experimentation, the students should determine the E-Z configuration of maleic and fumaric acids. The basis of this laboratory exercise is the acid-catalyzed isomerization of maleic acid to fumaric acid. Students are given the starting material, reagents and the experimental procedure. They are told that the starting material is a dicarboxylic acid containing a C=C double bond of formula C4H4O4. Students determine melting points, solubilities, acidity and chromatographic patterns for both the starting material and the product, so that a configuration of each acid can be proposed. This type of experiment yields excellent results, because the students are left to deduce that maleic acid is less stable than fumaric acid. Additionally, they conclude that maleic acid is the "Z" isomer and fumaric acid is the "E" isomer. Finally, this laboratory exercise allows the students to develop simultaneously their critical-thinking skills with the respective laboratory techniques and not to see chemistry as recipes to be followed.

    Vented stationary lead-acid batteries are currently the most commonly used type of accumulator in stand-alone PV systems. The state-of the art of the technology suggests that lead-acid batteries will maintain a predominant position in the PV market for the next years. Additionally to the specific operating requirements of batteries in PV systems, there are other questions not completely solved related to battery characterisation and testing methods for this type of application. The objective of this work is to contribute to the operational optimisation and reliability improvement of lead-acid batteries operating in stand-alone PV systems. This objective has been approached by means of eminently experimental works. These works are focused firstly on functional characterisation of batteries, with special emphasis on capacity and characteristic voltages study and secondly on degradation analysis of these batteries taking into account the specific working conditions of stand-alone PV systems which main characteristic is its wide variability of operational conditions (current rates, temperature and state of charge). In relation with battery characterisation, a procedure for the determination of the usable capacity of lead-acid batteries has been established and applied to a set of commercial batteries at different current rate and temperature conditions. From each battery experimental data and using a model equation describing the battery capacity as function of current rate and temperature, the corresponding parameters for each battery have been obtained. A comparative analysis of the model application to experimental data and data supplied by the manufacturer is included. Also, initial gassing voltage and end-of-charge voltage values have been measured at different current rate and temperature conditions for the whole set of batteries. Experimental values of voltage from each battery have been fitted with high degree of accuracy to simple mathematical expressions for both characteristic voltages as function of current rate and temperature. From the regression analysis, temperature coefficients have been obtained. To conclude the characterisation works, an study of charge voltage evolution and overall charge discharge efficiency at different operating conditions (current rate and temperature) combined with different initial test conditions and variations of state of- charge has been performed. It has been observed that battery voltage, in many cases, could not be indicative of its actual state of charge, instead of this a strong dependence on the voltage evolution on initial battery condition has been obtained. With respect to battery reliability, an analysis of failures and degradation mechanisms of lead-acid batteries under specific PV operation condition is presented. From this analysis we can conclude that the main causes of degradation of lead-acid batteries in PV systems are due to extended periods working at overcharge or over discharge conditions and typical cycling condition. Because of this, different accelerated battery tests have been developed to reproduce these degradation mechanisms. The objective of these procedures is to considerably reduce the tests duration without causing any alteration to the physical meaning of the actual degradation mechanism. Results of applying these accelerated degradation tests to two different batteries are presented. Finally, in basis of the obtained results, a general qualification test sequence for lead-acid batteries in PV stand-alone systems has been proposed. The proposed sequence includes individual specific test procedures for: technical specifications included in the documentation supplied with the battery, visual inspection, characterisation (full charge, capacity and efficiency) and reliability (overcharge, over discharge and cycling).

    In this work the results of the temperature effect study are presented on uranyl solutions adsorbed on zirconium silicate (ZrSiO{sub 4}) and also on the compounds formed in surface with oxalic acid. The adsorption isotherms of uranyl on hydrated zircon with NaClO{sub 4} 0.5 M, show an increase of the uranyl sorption efficiency when increasing the temperature from 20 to 4 C with a sudden descent in this efficiency when changing the temperature at 60 C. The uranyl sorption efficiency increases to hydrate the zircon with a solution of oxalic acid 0.1 M, maintaining the same tendency regarding to the temperatures of the sorption in medium NaClO{sub 4} 0.5 M. The complex formation in the zircon surface with organic acids of low molecular weight increases the fixation of the uranyl in solution due to the formation of ternary systems, in the order Zircon/A. Organic/Uranyl, without altering their response to the temperature. (Author)

    The excessive use of polymers such as polyethylene (PET), polystyrene (Ps) and recently the polylactic acid (Pla) that take more than 20 years to degrade, have caused great pollution in the environment. In this study the effects of gamma radiation in the Pla to different doses were studied, in order to reduce the degradation time of this polymer. The changes in physico-chemical structure of Pla during radiation were studied by thermo-gravimetric/Mass analysis; differential scanning calorimetry; scanning electron microscopy; X-ray dispersive analysis; infrared spectroscopy; X-ray diffraction and mechanical tests of hardness, elasticity and deformation. With scanning electron microscopy, the morphology of the Pla surface unirradiated was observed, in which an apparently smooth surface was observed, after changes that had the Pla when irradiated also was observed, where the effects of radiation were observed in form of scratch, agglomeration and small fractures. By X-ray dispersive analysis was determined and verified the elemental chemical composition of the Pla; as expected the tests showed only carbon, oxygen and hydrogen. With thermo-gravimetric/Mass analysis the decomposition temperatures of Pla were determined, identifying that the degradation compounds are CO, CO{sub 2} and CH{sub 4}. With infrared spectrometry the major peaks of Pla were observed before and after being irradiated with increasing of radiation dose the intensity of the bands decreased. Also by X-ray diffraction was observed that the polymer is an amorphous material. The mechanical tests indicate that the values of each of the tests decrease significantly with increasing the radiation dose. (Author)

    Myrsinoic A acid, isolated from Myrsine cuneifolia and its hydrogenated derivative had their effect on photosynthesis tested. The compounds inhibited the electron flow (basal, phosphorylating and uncoupled) from water to methyl viologen; therefore, they act as Hill reaction inhibitors in spinach thylakoids. They inhibited partial reactions of PSII electron flow from water to 2,5-dichloro-1,4-benzoquinone, from water to sodium silicomolybdate, and partially electron flow from diphenylcarbazide to 2,6-dichloroindophenol. Their inhibition sites were at the donor and acceptor sides of PSII, between P{sub 680} and Q{sub A}. Chlorophyll {alpha} fluorescence measurements confirmed the behavior of the compounds (pool of quinones). (author)

    In this work PLLA and PDLA were synthesized using calcium methoxide (Ca(OMe){sub 2}) as initiator. This compound shows good activity in the bulk polymerization of L-lactide (LLA) and D-lactide (DLA) producing polymers with average molecular weight up to 22,300 g/mol, but with microstructure containing a significant amount of estereoerros, as revealed by {sup 13} C NMR. Block copolymers containing blocks of L-and D-lactic acid were also prepared, using the method of sequential addition of LLA and DLA in an attempt to obtain stereo complexes. Analyses of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) revealed that the polymers obtained with catalysts of calcium produced PLA microspheres with diameters of around 5 {mu}m via electro spray technique.

    Elution of nickel ions from alginate beads was studied in a temperature range of 2 to 80 degree centigrade and a sulfuric acid concentration between 0.005 to 2.5 g L{sup -}1. The elution mechanism was established by ion exchange between nickel and ions protons, obtaining a value of 93% elution at a temperature of 80 degree centigrade and a H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} concentration of 0.25 g L{sup -}1. The influence of other acids on nickel elution was also studied. The nickel elution rate was significantly influenced by temperature and concentration of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}. Elution kinetics of nickel ions was studied, and the 1-(1-α){sup 1}/3=k{sub a}ppt model properly described the kinetics of this reaction. The dependence of nickel elution on the sulfuric acid concentration was of the order of 0.33. Moreover, the intrinsic rate constants were determined and an activation energy value of 54.5 kJ mol{sup -}1 was obtained for the temperature range studied. The results indicated that the nickel elution is a process controlled by chemical reactions. (Author)

    Introducción: la sarcopenia se define como un síndrome caracterizado por la pérdida progresiva y generalizada de la masa muscular y de la fuerza. La principal causa de la sarcopenia es la alteración del metabolismo de las proteínas, en la que los procesos proteolíticos no van acompañados de una síntesis de proteínas y células musculares adecuadas, con lo que se pierde progresivamente la sensibilidad al estímulo anabólico. El enfoque más racional para retrasar la progresión de la sarcopenia y contrarrestar la resistencia anabólica es una nutrición adecuada. La carne contiene compuestos biológicamente activos, tales como creatina, carnitina y ácido linoleico conjugado (CLA) que tienen impactos significativos sobre el metabolismo de la proteína humana. Métodos: se realizó una revisión de la literatura narrativa para evaluar la evidencia hasta ahora, en relación con: 1. ingesta adecuada de carne en ancianos como prevención de la sarcopenia; 2. la ingesta correcta de compuestos biológicamente activos que contiene la carne, que tienen impactos significativos sobre el metabolismo de la proteína humana y para así obtener efectos beneficiosos en la prevención de la sarcopenia. Esta revisión incluyó 62 estudios elegibles. Resultados: los resultados demostraron que en personas de edad avanzada la terapia óptima con dieta para la prevención y tratamiento de la sarcopenia, que debe apuntar al logro de los objetivos metabólicos específicos, debe recomendar el consumo de 113 g de carne (220 kcal; 30 g de proteínas) cinco veces a la semana. Conclusión: en una dieta variada y equilibrada, para prevenir la sarcopenia, se recomienda consumir la carne 4-5 veces a la semana (carne blanca 2 veces por semana, carne roja magra menos de 2 veces por semana, carne procesada menos de 1 vez por semana), como se sugiere en la pirámide de la dieta para personas mayores.

    Introducción: Las evidencias sugieren que las mezclas de Ácido Linoleico Conjugado (ALC) de origen comercial o natural diferencialmente afectan diferencialment al estado nutricional y al metabolismo lipídico. Objetivo: Investigar el efecto de dos preparaciones de ALC como complemento de grasas dietarias con diferentes proporciones de ácidos grasos (AG) n-9, n-6 y n-3 sobre composición corporal, niveles de triacilglicéridos (TG) y metabolismo lipídico en ratones. Métodos: Se alimentó a ratones en crecimiento con dietas con aceite de oliva, maíz y canola, o colza suplementadas con una mezcla equimolecular de ALC (mezcla-ALC) o aceites ricos en ácido ruménico (AR) por 30 días. Se evaluó: ganancia de peso, composición corporal, peso de tejidos, niveles de TG plasmáticos y séricos, y parámetros de regulación lipídica. Resultados: Independientemente de las grasas dietarias, la mezcla-ALC redujo el peso corporal y depósitos grasos relacionados con hepatomegalia, incremento de TG séricos y descenso de TG musculares. El aceite de canola previno la esteatosis hepática producida por la mezcla-ALC a aceites de oliva y maíz por incremento de la secreción de TG. AR decreció los depósitos grasos sin hepatomegalia, esteatosis hepática e hipertrigliceridemia. Aceite de oliva previno el incremento de TG musculares inducidos por suplementación con AR al aceite de maíz y canola. Discusión y conclusión: Las proporciones de AG insaturados dietarios modularon la respuesta de mezcla-ALC y AR al metabolismo lipídico en ratones. Finalmente, aceite de canola previno la esteatosis hepática inducida por mezcla-ALC, y los efectos benéficos más notorios fueron observados cuando aceite de oliva fue suplementado con AR, debido a la reducida acreción de lípidos sin cambios en los niveles de TG.

    Materials obtained by the immobilization of 12-tungstophosphoric acid (PTA) on silica using the method of impregnation with excess solution in distinct solvents (aqueous HCl, methanol:H{sub 2}O, and acetonitrile) were evaluated for use as catalysts in the methyl esterification of stearic acid. Optimum conditions were established for the impregnation of 0.5 g (w/w) of PTA on amorphous silica, under stirring at 150 rpm for 24 h, using 20 mL of 0.1 mol L{sup -1} HCl as the solvent. After calcination at 200 deg C, high conversions were obtained under mild reaction conditions, resulting in high turnover numbers. The catalyst was evaluated in ten catalytic cycles of use, where the activity was reduced only slightly, attesting its stability and the possibility to apply it to industrial production of methylesters.

    Microleakage at the interface between the teeth and the restorative materials remains a problem with composite resin restorations. Microleakage at the gingival margins of class V cavities restorations still challenge as they are usually placed in dentin and/or cementum. Previous studies have shown that the cavity preparation with Er:YAG laser is possible. It has been reported that Er:YAG laser has ability to create irregular surface providing micromechanical retention for adhesive dental restorative materials and to improve marginal sealing. The purpose of this in vitro study was to evaluate the marginal microleakage on class V cavities prepared with Er:YAG laser and etched with acid or with Er:YAG laser and acid, in compared to those prepared and etched conventionally. Thirty human molars were divided into three groups, namely: group I - prepared with Er:YAG laser (KaVo KEY Laser II - Germany) and etched with 37% phosphoric acid; group II - prepared with Er:YAG laser and etched with Er:YAG laser and 37% phosphoric acid; group III (control group) - prepared with high speed drill and etched with 37% phosphoric acid. All cavities were treated with same adhesive system (Single Bond - 3M) and restored with the composite resin (Z100 - 3M), according to the manufacturer's instructions. The specimens were stored at 37 deg C in water for 24 hours, polished with Sof-Lex discs (3M), thermally stressed, sealed with a nail polish coating except for the area of the restoration and 1 mm around it, and immersed in a 50% aqueous solution of silver nitrate for 24 hours. After that, the specimens were rinsed in water, soaked in a photodeveloping solution and exposed to a fluorescent light for 8 hours. The teeth were embedded in an autopolymerizing resin and sectioned longitudinally using a diamond saw microtome under running water. The sections were photographed. The microleakage at the occlusal cavity and at the gingival margins of each specimen was evaluated with scores (0-3) by three calibrated examinators. Both results on occlusal and gingival margins have shown no statistic significant difference among the three groups evaluated (p>0.05). The Er:YAG laser have shown to be as effective as the conventional methods for cavity preparation and etching, suggesting its use for the class V cavity preparation and enamel etching. (author)

    According to World Health Organization (WHO), cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide. Prostate cancer is the second most common cancer in men. A method of radiotherapy which has been extensively used is brachytherapy, where radioactive seeds are placed inside the area requiring treatment. Iodine-125 seeds can be placed loose or stranded in bioabsorbable polymers. Stranded seeds show some advantages, since they reduce the rate of seed migration, an event that could affect the dosimetry of the prostate and cause unnecessary damage to healthy tissues or organs. For Iodine-125 stranded seeds, polyglactin 910 (poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid)) (PLGA), with a coverage of polyglactin 370 (Vicryl Registered-Sign ) is used. It was purposed in this dissertation, the study and development of the synthesis methodology for PLGA via ring-opening polymerization, as well as its characterization, with the objective of using the synthesized material to manufacture a material similar to RAPID Strand{sub Registered-Sign }. The results obtained show that it was possible to determine the optimal reaction parameters (time and temperature) for PLGA in 80/20 (lactide/glycolide) ratio. Using a temperature of 110 Degree-Sign C and reaction time of 24h, a yield of 86% was obtained, and increasing the reaction time to 72 hours, the yield was higher than 90%. The molecular mass values obtained from the samples are still very low compared to those obtained by other authors in the literature (about 20%). Failures in the sealing of vials, leaving them vulnerable to moisture and oxygen, or lack of an efficient stirring system might be possible explanations for these results. A suitable chemical reactor could solve the problem. Regarding polymer characterization, all techniques used not only confirmed the expected structure of the polymer, but also showed the highest proportion of lactide units compared to to glycolide units.

The yield was higher than 90% using a temperature of 110 °C and reaction time of 72 hours; however, the molecular weight values obtained are very low compared to those obtained by other authors. New tests using previously synthesized dimers and nitrogen atmosphere are being performed. These conditions could potentially increase the molar mass of PLGA. All techniques used confirmed the expected structure of the polymer. (author)

    This work presents a high speed NIM module (Nuclear Instrumentation Module) to detect radiation, gamma and muons, as part of a system for natural radiation monitoring and of extraterrestrial origin. The subsystem developed consists of a preamplifier and an integrated SCA (Single Channel Analyzer), including power supplies of ± 12 and ± 24V with derivations of +3.6 and ± 5V. The single channel analyzer board, consisting of discrete logic components, operating in window modes, normal and integral. The pulse shaping block is made up of two voltage comparators working at 120 MHz with a response time > 60 ns and a logic anticoincidence system. The preamplifier promotes a noise reduction and introduces the impedance matching between the output of anode / diode photomultiplier tubes (PMTs) and subsequent equipment, providing an input impedance of 1MΩ and output impedance of 40 to 140Ω. The shaper amplifier is non-inverting and has variable input capacitance of 1000 pF. The upper and lower thresholds of the SCA are adjustable from 0 to ± 10V, and the equipment is compatible with various types of detectors, like PMTs coupled to sodium iodide crystals. For use with liquid scintillators and photodiodes with crystals (CsI: Tl) is proposed to include a preamplifier circuit pHEMT (pseudomorphic High Electron Mobility Transistor) integrated. Yet, the system presents the possibility of applications for various purposes of gamma spectroscopy and automatic detection of events producing of beta particles.

    In recent publications has been reported that gold nanoparticles have an effect in reducing the expression of the oncogene Bcl -2 and have a high biocompatibility , this is the importance for using gold nanoparticles for this work. The antibody CD20 is an antibody that specifically binds to that over expressed CD20 antigen on the cell membrane of B lymphoma cell non- Hodgkin (cell line Raji) behold the importance of combining this bio molecule to gold nanoparticles since they have a high specificity with CD20 positive cells , also to carry out the antigen- antibody immunological reactions triggered mediating cell lysis, possibly by cytotoxicity and apoptosis. Therefore, this system must have characteristics of both components to eliminate B cell non- Hodgkin lymphoma.In this work it was studied a multivalent system composed of gold nanoparticles and anti-CD20 antibody, the term multi valency refers to the number of biomolecules attached to the surface of the gold nanoparticle. The synthesis and characterization of the gold nanoparticles and the multivalent system was performed and the effect of the multivalent system on the expression of oncogene Bcl-2 (group of proteins associated with the apoptotic pathway) was evaluated. Characterization of raw materials and the multivalent system was performed using spectroscopic and microscopic techniques, this to verify structural changes in raw materials and thus confirm the formation of CD20 binding to the surface of the nanoparticle gold by the bond between gold and sulfur in the cysteines of CD20. Taking advantage that the metal nanoparticles have the optical property of surface plasmon resonance, the absorption of gold nanoparticles was measured on the UV-Vis as it is affected by the surface molecules bind to it, showing a bathochromic displacement effected. The hydrodynamic diameter of the gold nanoparticles was measured to verify that the antibody is bound to the surface; this evidence was complemented by micrographs obtained by transmission electron microscopy.

    Electric energy costs are one of the main issues inside the total amounts in a WWTP, being the aeration system consumption the highest one but also the most flexible and order to reduce the global costs. In this work it has been quantified the improvement obtained when formic acid is used to do periodic cleanness of the diffusers. When this is used, manual cleanness can be kept apart. During the cleanness processes with formic acid, it has been observed a reduction in the pressure drop, between 6 and 13%, and a reduction in the power demand, between 7 and 12% . These reduction have been correlated with the annual costs, reaching an annual saving of near 3%. (Author) 8 refs.

    Preparation of physical mixture or polymer blends is a very important method to obtain a final product with excellent balance of properties, where one component can compensate for the poor property of another, and is often a modified low cost compared to development and synthesis of a new polymer. PET has become a major waste of post-consumer plastics and aiming to remedy this problem, this work aims to obtain blends from recycled PET and polyesters derived from glycerol and phthalic acid. The material with higher proportion of PET showed better thermal properties, observed by TGA and DSC, with a similar profile of pure PET. In XRD analysis showed a semicrystalline, while the SEM is a smooth surface on all materials, characteristic of pure polyester. The ratio of 50% its surface showed a probable immiscibility of polymers. (author)

    Synthetic polymers are highly resistant to degradation, being one of the greatest responsible for environment pollution. Consequently, an increase in biodegradable polymers research and development is happening. In this work we propose the synthesis and characterization of polyesters potentially biodegradable using glycerol, citric acid (CA) and adipic acid (AD). The polyesters were prepared by adding the reactants in molar ratio between glycerol:acids (1:1,5), but changing the acids ratio. The system was heated to 150-160 deg C, under nitrogen atmosphere and magnetic stirring, without catalyst adding. The samples were characterized by TGA, DSC, FTIR, XRD e SEM. The results show that the polymers prepared are amorphous polyesters, with two thermal events in 250 deg C and 450 deg C and the surfaces presents smooth and rough regions refers to bonds between glycerol and CA or AD, respectively.

    We present in this work the influence of temperature on the dynamics of homogeneous chemical systems containing bromate and 1,4-cyclohexanedione (1,4-CHD) in acidic media. In particular, the following systems were studied: bromate/1,4-CHD/acid, bromate/1,4-CHD/ferroin/acid and bromate/1,4-CHD/trisbipyridine ruthenium/acid. Investigations were carried out by means of an electrochemical probe, at five temperatures between 5 and 45 degree C. Activation energies (Ea) were estimated in different ways for the pre-oscillatory and oscillatory regimes. In any case, the Ea was found to depend on the catalyst, composition and initial concentrations. In addition, it was observed that ferroin and trisbipyridine ruthenium act as catalysts only during the transition between the induction period and oscillatory regime. (author)

    The aim of this study was to identify, with the use of {sup 31}P NMR spectroscopy, organic P species in humic acids (HA) in samples from Oxisol cultivated in chronosequence with sugar cane, pasture and Cerrado. The main forms of P-type found were orthophosphate, monoester-P (phosphate sugars) and P-diester (orthophosphate). The {sup 31}P NMR technique proved capable of identifying changes in the areas studied as a function of sugar cane burning time. In areas with 1 and 5 years of burnt cane, a decrease in recalcitrant organic P in humic acids indicated the need for use of P-humic substances for plant nutrition (author)

    Irradiation is efficient at extinction fungi contamination in peanuts. Peanuts have high biologic value protein, minerals, vitamin E, complex B, and high concentration of lipids. The objective of this research is to evaluate the gamma irradiation effect on color, total phenolic, antioxidant activity, and fatty acid profile in peanuts (Arachis hypogaea L.). Cultivars IAC-Tatu ST and IAC-Runner 886 were submitted to gamma radiation with doses of 5.0; 7.5; 10.0, and 15.0 kGy and storage at room temperature. There was no significant difference in the color of IAC-Tatu ST. However, significant difference was found in the luminosity and Chroma in IAC-Runner 886. Total fenolics differed from the control with 33.27 mg.g{sup -1} and treatment dose of 10.0 kGy with 58.60 mg.g{sup -1} in IAC-Tatu ST. This parameter not had significant difference in IAC-Runner 886 and the control with 51.59 mg.g{sup -1}. The antioxidant activity did not present significant difference with a dose of 10.0 kGy, recommended for the elimination of fungi in peanuts. The dose of 10.0 kGy showed a decrease in saturated fatty acids, increase in unsaturated fatty acids, and an increase in linolleic acid. The oleic/linoleic relation decreased justifying further research correlating storage and oxidative stability. (author)

    Due to the growing environmental awareness on the negative impact resulting from utilization of fossil fuels, and in the search for renewable energy sources, biofuels' interest as Bioethanol has rapidly expanded recently. In this context, lignocellulosic compounds have become center of attention as an abundant and economic alternative source of carbohydrates for ethanol production. In this study, cashew's bagasse acid hydrolysis was initially studied for glucose synthesis and its fermentation towards ethanol production. Sulfuric acid concentration, solids concentration and time were some of the factors evaluated. The highest glucose productivity value (162,9 mg.g de bagaco{sup -1}) , was obtained for 0,6 mol.L{sup -1} of sulfuric acid in an autoclave at 121 deg C for 15 min. For the fermentation of the hydrolyzed material by S. cerevisiae containing 16 {+-} 2,0 g.L{sup -1} of glucose metabolic, the yield and productivity obtained were 0,63 g-g glucose{sup -1} and 1,43 g.L{sup -1}h{sup -1} respectively. Ethanol concentration after 6 h of fermentation of this hydrolyzed was 11 g.L{sup -1}. In the best conditions of acid hydrolysis, a second pre-treatment with diluted sulfuric acid was performed to evaluate availability of hemicelluloses at 160 deg C and 180 deg C. For comparative purposes, alkali pre-treatment was evaluated under the conditions of 0,6 mol.L{sup -1}, 30% p/v of bagasse thermically treated at 121 deg C for 15 minutes. However, concentration of sugars was not sufficient for fermentation. Also, nitrogen supplementation of the hydrolyzed fraction did not influence significantly ethanol production. The results demonstrate that the hydrolyzed fraction from the acid pre-treatment of cashew's bagasse could be utilized for ethanol production. (author)

    Buriti (Mauritia flexuosa L.), a typical fruit from the Northeast and Center-West Amazon of Brazil, is used in many regional dishes. It is considered an excellent source of carotenoids that are A vitamin precursors, showing a majority of beta-carotene. It also presents ascorbic acid and sugar contents. Many studies have indicated that the lack of A vitamin is the main cause of night blindness and xerophthalmia. Also, ascorbic acid deficiency may cause scorbutic disease. The use of food irradiation is growing and represents an economic benefit to agriculture through the reduction of post-harvesting losses while maintaining food nutritional quality. In this study, buriti in natura was treated with gamma irradiation with doses of 0.5 kGy and 1.0 kGy. The objective was to evaluate the irradiation effects on total carotenoids, ascorbic acid and sugars concentrations of buriti. The fruit was evaluated through the total carotenoids analysis, by spectrophotometry, and the carotenoids (alpha and beta-carotene and lutein), ascorbic acid and sugars were determined by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The results showed that buriti is an excellent source of total carotenoids (44600 {mu}g/100 g). The irradiation of buriti with the dose of 0.5 kGy did not significantly change carotenoids and sugars contents. However, there was a reduction of ascorbic acid concentration with an increase of the dose, which may have been caused by irradiation or by intrinsic and extrinsic factors that alter ascorbic acid stability in food, converting ascorbic to dehydroascorbic acid, while keeping the C vitamin active form.

    Treated sewage effluent utilization for irrigation represents an antique, popular and attractive alternative to the common disposal of effluent to watercourses and includes three main purposes: effluent complementary treatment, water and nutrient source to the soil-plant system. However, because in Brazil no experiences in wastewater recycling exists consequently few scientific studies were carried out despite the importance of the subject. The present study aimed to evaluate by chemical and spectroscopy techniques the soil organic matter from soils irrigated with treated sewage effluent. Five treatments were evaluated: TSI (control) - irrigation with potable water and addition of the nitrogen as mineral fertilizer; T100, T125, T150 and T200 - irrigation with treated sewage sludge effluent and addition of the nitrogen as mineral fertilizer. The results obtained shown changes in the carbon contend and humification degree for the soils irrigated with treated sewage sludge effluent due to the increase activity of the decomposition of organic matter, stimulated by the increase of water in the soil.

    The radiometric method was applied to the evaluation of dental loss caused by carbamide peroxide when it is applied on the surface layers of enamel and dentin tissues. Also the dental loss caused by the etching with 37% phosphoric acid procedure used in aesthetic restoration was assessed for comparison with those results obtained. The tooth samples irradiated with a P standard in a thermal neutron flux of the nuclear reactor were placed in contact with 10% carbamide peroxide or with 37% phosphoric acid solution. The radioactivity of {sup 32} P transferred from the radioactive teeth to the bleaching gel or to etching acid was measured using a Geiger Muller detector to calculate the mass of P removed in this treatment and losses were calculated after obtaining their P concentrations. Results obtained indicated that enamel and dentin exposed to carbamide peroxide bleaching agent lose phosphorus. The extent of enamel loss was smaller than that obtained for dentin. In the case of acid etching, there was no difference between the results obtained for enamel and dentin loss. Also the dentin loss obtained after a treatment of 30 applications of 10% carbamide peroxide was the same magnitude of that one application of 37% phosphoric acid. (author)

    The chaoolmugra oil is one of the oldest medicines used for leprosy until the development of sulfas. In Brazil, it is known as sapucainha oil that is obtained from Carpotroche brasilienesis seeds (Flacourtiaceae). Chemical and medicinal studies of sapucainha oil were introduced in Brazil by Peckolt, Cole and Cardoso which showed that major ciclopentenyl fatty acids as chaulmoogric, hydnocarpic and gorlic were responsible for its bactericidal activity. In this work, a method for quantification of sapucainha oil acidic fraction by HRGC was established using methyl n-heptadecanoate as internal standard. The oil chemical stability was investigated by the use of GC-MS, IR, {sup 1}H and {sup 13}C NMR and showed that the main degradation products belong to the cyclopentenyl moiety oxidation. (author)

    The uranium adsorption was studied in a Mexican natural zeolite of the clinoptilolite type in presence and absence of humic acids (Ha). The adsorption kinetics of the binary U-zeolite and ternary U-Ha-zeolite systems were compared, and the effect of the humic matter impregnated in the zeolite in the uranium removal in function of the solution ph was studied. The experiments were made to environmental conditions and lightly acid ph, with fixed concentrations of uranium and Ha of 1 x 10{sup -5} M and 20 ppm, respectively, and a reason m/V of 5 mg/ml. The uranium adsorption in absence of Ha was of 96% and decreased to 45% in the ternary system U-Ha-zeolite. The data of the binary system U-zeolite were analyzed with three kinetic models of adsorption (pseudo-first order, pseudo-second order and Elovich). By means of non lineal regression was found that the uranium adsorption obeys a kinetic of pseudo-second order. It was observed that the uranium adsorption in the zeolite impregnated with Ha is favored to more ph at 5. (Author)

    According to environmental concerns, super absorbent hydrogel composites were synthesized based on rice husk ash (RHA), an industrial waste, and Chitosan-graft-poly(acrylic acid). The WAXS and FTIR data confirmed the syntheses of hydrogel composites. The effect of crystalline or amorphous RHA on water uptake was investigated. It was found that the RHA in crystalline form induces higher water capacity (W{sub eq}) of composites hydrogels due to the fact that the intra-interactions among silanol groups on RHA make available new sites in the polymer matrix, which could interact to water.

    Environmentally friendly materials, made from industrial waste, are being increasingly used as a solution to the growing amount of waste generated by society, but also as a cheaper alternative to replace conventional materials for use in construction. In this work were investigated the properties of polymer blends based on recycled PET and a polyester derived from terephthalic acid and glycerin, a co-product of biodiesel. The samples were characterized by XRD, TGA, DSC, FTIR and SEM. The polyester synthesized showed a degradation event near 300 deg C. The blends with higher ratio of PET showed thermal behavior similar to pure PET. The X-ray diffraction showed that the polymer blends are semicrystalline materials. The micrographs presents the presence of a smooth surface, indicating the possibility of miscibility between the arrays. Therefore, the blending makes possible the fabrication of low-cost materials with applications in several areas. (author)

    Humic acids samples (one deriving from a sedimentary soil and other from a peat), in aqueous media, were irradiated with gamma rays, in doses of 10, 50 and 100 kGy, in order to understand their chemical behavior after the irradiation. The material, before and after irradiation, was analyzed by Elemental Analysis, Functional Groups (carboxylic acids and phenols), UV/Vis Spectroscopy (E{sub 4}/E{sub 6} ratio), IR spectroscopy, CO{sub 2} content and Gel permeation Chromatography (GPC) ). The Elemental Analysis showed the humic acid derived from a peat had a most percentage quantity of Carbon and Hydrogen than the material from a sedimentary soil. From the UV/Vis Spectroscopy, it was observed a decrease of E{sub 4}/E{sub 6} ratio with an increase of the applied dose. The data from GPC are in agreement with this. The results showed that the molecular weight of the material increased by exposing it to a larger radiolitical dose. The peat material was less affected by the gamma radiation than the soil material. The carboxylic groups were responsible by radiochemical behavior of the material. (author)

Firstly the A. describes the positive results of examination of sediment of ticks, the cattle tick Boophilus microplus (Canestrini, 1888, received from Paraná (Leprosário São Roque , which were put on active lepers, two of them sucking during 9 days and one during 7 days. Two out of three were killed for examination and were very strongly positive for acid-fast bacilli. A series of tubes of Loewenstein medium was smeared with the sediment of such ticks. Secondly the A. relates his personnal experiment, carried out in Rio de Janeiro, trying to infect normal ticks in lepers. The experiment with Boophilus microplus was negative and was twicely positive the experiment with Amblyomma cajennense Fabricius, 1794. The experiment is being in progress and will be continued in other places of Brazil. Finally, after being given the general characteristics of Boophilus microplus, the A. describes the non-chromogenic culture of a acid-fast bacillus isolated by him from sediment of ticks (Amblyomma cajennense captured in lepers from Colônia Santa Isabel (Minas gerais, which parasitism was spontaneous. The first isolation was obtained in Loewenstein medium after 62 days incubation at 37°C. The culture is pure and the bacillus is permanent acid-fast. The plate1, in full color, represents this culture in its four generations. The colonies are pearl-white in color, dry, elevated and rough, developing slowly and beginning as white pinhead points scattered upon the surface of the medium. The culture is not yet rich enough to be inoculated into laboratory animals, which will be done when possible.

    Advances in the design of a bioreactor in the fats and oils industry have permitted the hydrolysis of triglycerides in mild conditions and improved productivity while avoiding the formation of unwanted byproducts. The present work develops a mathematical model that describes the hydrolytic activity of a tubular reactor with immobilized lipases for the production of glycerol and fatty acids from the oil trade. Runge Kuttas numerical method of high order has been applied, considering that there is no accumulation of the substratum in the surface of the membrane, where the enzyme is. At the same time, different equations based on the kinetic model of Michaelis Mentens and the Ping-Pong bi-bi mechanism were examined. Experimental data in discontinuous systems are the basis for the development of the quantitative mathematical model that was used to simulate the process computationally. The obtained results allow for optimizing both the operative variables and the economic aspects of industrial processes. (Author)

    Bromination of enaminoesters 1 and 5, in appropriate conditions, affords in good yield enamines of the corresponding 2-bromo-3.4-dioxobutanoic acid derivatives 2-3 and 6 or dibromocompounds 4 and 6. The open chain enaminoesters (1-3) are more easily hydrolyzed that enaminofuranones 5 and 6. Prolongated treatment of 6 with hydrochloric acid affords the chlorinated enamine 11. The synthesis of 3-Bromo-4-hydroxy-5-methoxyfuran-2(5H)-one 10 can be achieved by bromination of 12, obtained by hydrolysis of 5. The reaction of methyl 3-bromo-4, 4-dimethoxy-3-oxobutanoate with amidines is a good method for the synthesis of 5-bromo-6-(dimethoxymethyl) pyrimidine-4(3H)-ones substituted at 2 position. Under the same conditions the reaction of furanone 10 with benzamide does not lead to the corresponding imidazoline. (Author) 12 refs.

    Additives are added to the electrodeposition of metal coatings to improve the characteristics of the deposit. However, the objective was to investigate the effect of adding glycerin and formic acid in the deposition efficiency and deposit structure of zinc-nickel alloy obtained by electrodeposition. The depositions were made at a galvanostatic current density of 10 mA/cm{sup 2} to obtain a deposit of about 5 mm in thickness. The deposition efficiency was determined through measures of mass, chemical composition of the deposit in the presence and absence of additives was examined by X-ray Spectrometer Fluorescence (XRF) and surface characterization of coatings was performed by Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). The high levels of glycerin (0,07 M) and formic acid (0,26 M) in bath deposition increased the deposition efficiency of around 10% to 12% by mass, respectively. (author)

    The 5-ethyl-5-phenylbarbituric acid (phenobarbital) is used as a sedative, hypnotic and anticonvulsant drug. We decided to label it with technetium-99m. In order to determine the optimal conditions, different concentrations of this drug were incubated with various stannous chloride solutions. Then, {sup 99m}Tc was added and chromatography was performed using 0.9% NaCl solution, acetone and n-butyl alcohol as the mobile phase. Using a solution of 0.01 mg/ml stannous chloride and 1.0 mg/ml phenobarbital over 92% of the radioactivity bound to phenobarbital {sup 99m}Tc-phenobarbital. In the biodistribution study, {sup 99m}Tc-phenobarbital was administered in mice intraperitoneal. The main uptake of the labeled drug was in the liver, blood, kidneys, spleen and stomach. The phenobarbital is also used as anesthetic drug in animals. Earlier studies confirm that this drug can dislocate the adult worms of Schistosoma mansoni to mesenteric vein towards the liver and portal vein, so that we used infected animals, radioactivity was not found in isolated worms and we can conclude that the phenobarbital has an indirect action in relation to the displacement of the worms.

    in this work the physicochemical properties of three structured materials: metallic, polymeric and ceramic, from Sulzer Brothers Limited brand, are studied in order to removal sour gases, by absorption process, in aqueous solution of Monoethanolamine (Mea), at 30% weight. Mechanical properties, chemical composition, morphology and corrosion resistance were determined, using different characterization techniques, such as: 1) mechanically, according to standard procedures Astm E-384-1990, 2) chemically, by the corrosion resistance in the presence of an electrochemical cell, in aqueous solution of H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}, 1 N by Astm G-5-1999, 3) morphologically by scanning electron microscopy technique, and 4) efficiency of separation, by the gas chromatography technique in order to determine the chemical absorption of CO{sub 2} by Mea. The ceramic material was the hardest with 700 Hk value and tensile strength of 90 MPa, likewise showed resistance to corrosion of 10.28 m py, separation efficiency of 74% CO{sub 2}, at 10 minutes. The metallic material had a hardness of 190 Hk and it was the most resistant of tension, with 831 MPa, and corrosion resistance of 780.4 x 10{sup -6} m py, likewise promoted CO{sub 2} separation efficiency of 90% during the evaluation. The polymeric material presented hardness of 20 Hk and 35 MPa and it was not suffered surface change with electrochemical attack, with 282.4 x 10{sup -6} m py, and separation efficiency of 88%. Therefore the polymer was the most ductile, with smooth surface and greater resistance with H{sub 2}SO{sub 4}. The metal material was more resistant to plastic deformation and more corrugated surface and the second resistance in the presence of acid medium in aqueous solutions. For all the above, the metallic material is recommended by its greater separation in the reduction of acid gases and the polymer due to its greater chemical resistance. (Author)

    One denominates 'naphthenic acids' to the mixture of carboxylic acids that is present in petroleum oil, and is directly responsible for its acidity and corrosiveness in liquid phase during the refine process. These acids are also presents in distilled fraction of petroleum, causing several problems in final products quality. A possible way to remove them from petroleum distilled fractions is the adsorption in porous materials. However, the published results indicate that ion exchange resins would be the best adsorbents for this process, which would probably increase its cost. In this work, two commercial adsorbents (clay and activated alumina) were characterized by a set of physical-chemistry techniques and evaluated concerning their capacity of removing naphthenic acids from a light petroleum fraction. It was also verified the influence of a previous thermal treatment to the adsorption in their physical-chemistry characteristics and its properties. (author)

    The surface of zirconium diphosphate (ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}) was modified with salicylic acid and its effect was evaluated on the uranium (Vi) sorption. The modified surface of the material was analyzed with different analytical techniques among which are included the atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy. This analysis allowed showing that the salicylic acid is being held on the surface of the zirconium diphosphate. The reactivity of modified zirconium diphosphate compared with uranium (Vi) was investigated using the classical method of batch sorption. The analysis of sorption isotherms shows that the salicylic acid has an important effect in the uranium (Vi) sorption. According to the study conducted, the interaction among the uranium (Vi) and the surface of zirconium diphosphate modified with the salicylic acid most likely leads to the complexes formation of binary (U(Vi)/ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}) and ternary (U(Vi)/salicylate/ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}) surface.

    In this work the experimental conditions were established to evaluate the uranium (Vi) sorption to 20 and 40 C on the surface of the zirconium diphosphate (ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}) modified with a solution of salicylic acid 0.1 M. The modification of the ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7} was produced during the hydrate process, taking advantage that these are formed complexes between the carboxyl and hydroxyl groups of salicylic acid and amphoteric species of the interface solid/liquid. The method is used by lots to elaborate the isotherms that explain the behavior of this sorption in different ph conditions and temperature, the quantity of the uranium reaction is analyzed with the fluorescence technique. The results indicated that in the temperature increases the uranium sorption on the material and is more efficient to low ph values. (Author)

    The phosphoric minerals utilized in phosphoric acid production, presents high concentrations of radioactive materials: U238, Th 232, K 40. The phosphogypsum is the waste material obtained in the phosphoric acid production in wet process. This type of production method is employed for many years in Venice lagoon (Porto Marghera chemical plants). In this paper are reported evaluations of radiological impact on aquatic environment of lagoon. [Italian] Con il termine di fosfogessi si intende comunemente il materiale di risulta che si ottiene nella produzione di acido fosforico attraverso la via umida (attacco acido). Questa tipologia di produzione che ha operato per diversi decenni a Porto Marghera, e' finalizzata allo scopo di ottenere acido fosforico principalmente per l'industria dei fertilizzanti e quindi come prodotto intermedio per la chimica e per le preparazioni alimentari. Il fosforo, elemento principale della reazione, era ricavato da rocce fosfatiche di origine sedimentaria marina provenienti per lo piu' dall'Africa settentrionale. Il sistema produttivo utilizzato negli impianti di Porto Marghera era basato su una reazione principale, che partendo dal minerale attraverso un attacco acido, produceva acido fosforico: Ca{sub 3}(PO{sub 4}){sub 2} (Minerale Fosforico) + 3H{sub 2}SO{sub 4} (Acido Solforico) + 3H{sub 2}O (Acqua) {yields} 2H{sub 3}PO{sub 4} (Acido fosforico) + 3CaSO{sub 4}H{sub 2}O (Solfato di calcio (gesso)). In particolare il minerale era preventivamente macinato e vagliato, quindi si procedeva alla sua miscelazione con l'acido fosforico ed alla successiva reazione del composto ottenuto.

    Over the last decades, the need to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases has prompted the development of technologies for the production of clean fuels through the use of primary energy resources of zero emissions, as the heat of nuclear reactors of high temperature. Within these technologies, one of the most promising is the hydrogen production by sulfur-iodine cycle coupled to a high temperature reactor initially proposed by General Atomics. By their nature and because it will be large-scale plants, the development of these technologies from its present phase to its procurement and construction, will have to incorporate emergency mitigation systems in all its parts and interconnections to prevent undesired events that could put threaten the plant integrity and the nearby area. For the particular case of sulfur-iodine thermochemical cycle, most analysis have focused on hydrogen explosions and failures in the primary cooling systems. While these events are the most catastrophic, is that there are also many other events that even taking less direct consequences, could jeopardize the plant operation, the people safety of nearby communities and carry the same economic consequences. In this study we analyzed one of these events, which is the formation of a toxic cloud prompted by uncontrolled leakage of concentrated sulfuric acid in the second section of sulfur-iodine process of General Atomics. In this section, the sulfuric acid concentration is near to 90% in conditions of high temperature and positive pressure. Under these conditions the sulfuric acid and sulfur oxides from the reactor will form a toxic cloud that the have contact with the plant personnel could cause fatalities, or to reach a town would cause suffocation, respiratory problems and eye irritation. The methodology used for this study is the supported design in probabilistic safety analysis. Mitigation systems were postulated based on the isolation of a possible leak, the neutralization of a pond of sulfuric acid and finally washing the same; later some scenarios and modifications were analyzed to determine their impact on the likelihood of failure system and provide feedback design with the information produced in the probabilistic safety analysis.

    The speciation of the products from the reaction of {sup 51} Cr(VI) with concentrated acids (HClO{sub 4}, HCl e HF) was carried out by ion chromatography. The separation was made on a Partisil SCX (10 {mu}m) column, using HClO{sub 4} and Ca(ClO{sub 4}){sub 2} solutions as eluents. The eluates were measured by {gamma}-counting. The results for the reaction (1h) of carrier-free {sup 51} Cr(VI) with HCl show that 96.4% from the {sup 51} Cr is not retained on the column (anionic and/or neutral species). A similar result (92.7% not retained) is observed in a Cr(VI)-HF system. However, for the reaction with HClO{sub 4}, 82% of the {sup 51} Cr was observed as a +3 species and only 5.9% as anionic and/or neutral species. (author)

    In this study, synthesized zeolitic material from coal ash and modified cationic surfactant was used for removing the acid dye Orange 8 (AL8) by adsorption process using moving bed and fixed-bed column. The raw material and adsorbents were characterized by different techniques, such as X-ray diffraction, X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy, among others. The adsorption of AL8 was performed by moving bed in order to optimize the results when they are launched in a fixed bed. The effects of adsorption on zeolite AL8 were compared: (1) Effect of counterions Br{sup -} and Cl{sup -} surfactant used in the modification of the zeolite; (2) effect of type of coal ash used as raw material in the synthesis of zeolites (fly and bottom). The following adsorbents were used in the study: fly and bottom zeolite modified by surfactant hexadecyltrimethylammonium bromide (ZLMS-Br-Br and ZPMS-Br) and fly zeolite modified by surfactant hexadecyltrimethylammonium chloride (ZLMS-Cl). The pseudo-second-order kinetic described the adsorption of the dye on all adsorbents. The equilibrium time was reached 40, 60 and 120 min for ZLMS-Br, ZLMS-Cl and ZPMS-Br, respectively. The adsorption equilibrium was analyzed by the equations of the models of linear and nonlinear isotherms of Langmuir, Freundlich, Temkin and Dubinin- Radushkevivh (DR) and the criterion of best fit was evaluated using the error functions.The DR model was adjusted better to the experimental data for the system AL8 / ZLMS-Br, the Freundlich model for AL8 / ZLMS-Cl and Langmuir for AL8 / ZPMS. According to the Langmuir maximum adsorption capacity was 4.67, 1.48 and 1.38 mg g{sup -1} for ZLMS-Br, ZLMS-Cl and ZPMS-Br, in order. In studies employing fixed bed columns, the effects of inlet concentration (20- 30 mg L{sup -1}), flow rate (4.0 -5.3 mL min{sup -1}) and the bed height (5, 5 - 6.5 cm) above the breakthrough curves characteristics in the adsorption system were determined. The Adams-Bohart, Thomas, Yoon-Nelson models were applied to experimental data to predict the breakthrough curves and to determine the parameters that characterize the column. The mathematical models of Thomas and Yoon-Nelson adjusted well to the data of breakthrough curves. The highest bed capacity of 5.3 mg g{sup -1} was obtained using 30 mg L{sup -1} inlet Acid Orange 8 concentration, 5.5 cm bed height and 5.3 mL min{sup -1} flow rate. Acute ecotoxicity tests using Daphnia similis microcrustacean with wastewater (AL8) and after treatment with surfactant modified zeolite were carried out with the purpose of evaluating evidence of possible contamination when launched on the receiving water body. The results of this study showed that samples AL8 dye in aqueous solution does not show any toxic effect, and the treated samples showed toxicity with ZLMS-Br. (author)

    The electrocatalytical activity of binary electrodes of Pt and SnO{sub 2} and ternary electrodes of Pt and SnO{sub 2} and RuO{sub 2} for the electrooxidation of formic acid and formaldehyde was investigated by cyclic voltammetry and chronoamperometry techniques. The electrode materials were prepared by the thermal decomposition of polymeric precursors at 400 deg C. The cyclic voltammetry results showed that the methanol electrooxidation process presents peak potentials for those electrodes approximately 100 mV lower than the values obtained for metallic platinum electrodes. The Pt{sub 0.6}Ru{sub 0.2}Sn{sub 0.2}O{sub y} electrodes presented the highest current density values for potentials lower than the peak potential values. The chronoamperometric experiments also showed that the addition of SnO{sub 2} and RuO{sub 2} contributed for the enhancement of the electrode activity in low potential values. The preparation method was found to be useful to obtain high active materials. (author)

    In order to improve the corrosion resistance of biodegradable magnesium and AZ31 magnesium alloy implants, a phytic acid coating has been applied on both substrates and their protective effect against corrosion has been assessed. The morphology and the chemical nature of the conversion coating were analyzed by SEM/EDX, XRD and FTIR. The spectra showed that the conversion coating was amorphous, and it was composed of Mg, O, and P on magnesium surface, along with Al, Zn and C on AZ31 alloy. The main coating components were chelate compounds formed by phytic acid and metallic ions. The corrosion resistance of bare and coated samples was evaluated by potentiodynamic polarization technique in Hank's solution at 37 degree centigrade. The results indicate that phytic acid conversion coatings provided a very effective protection to the magnesium substrates studied. (Author)

    The aim of this work is to study the influence of the acid-basic properties of rhenium oxide supported on alumina catalyst on the catalytic performance in olefin metathesis. The literature data indicate that the environment of the active site does possess acid properties. However, the nature of the acid sites is still matter of debate. Concerning the Re O{sub x} - Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} interactions, we have shown that perrhenate ions are electrostatically absorbed on alumina. The uptake of rhenium is favoured at acidic pH (below 4), and the absorbed rhenium is in equilibrium with rhenium in solution. The results of rhenium extraction by water strongly suggest that the surface compounds of the calcined Re{sub 2}O{sub 7}/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} materials is aluminium perrhenate. Characterization of surface acidity of the catalyst by infrared spectroscopy reveals that the initiation of the metathesis reaction is governed essentially by Lewis acidity. This strongly supports the role of Lewis acidity, which is exalted by the increase of the rhenium content and the calcination temperature. Finally, we point out by ammonia adsorption-thermodesorption a band at 1320 cm{sup -1} characteristic of the Lewis acidity of aluminium perrhenate. This result is a second indication of the presence of aluminium perrhenate on the Re{sub 2}O{sub 7}/Al{sub 2}O{sub 3} catalyst surface. (author)

    Due to the environmental impact caused by PET packaging disposal, this material recycling has been thoroughly discussed and evaluated. In particular, chemical recycling enables achievement of the monomers that are used in PET resin manufacture: ethylene glycol (EG) and terephthalic acid (PTA). Therefore, studies for this process optimization are important from environmental and economic points of view. The present study investigated certain parameters that influence the depolymerization reaction of PET post-consumer via alkaline hydrolysis in order to obtain PTA. Assays were performed at 70 °C by varying the concentration of sodium hydroxide and the reaction time. The best results were obtained at 10.82 mol L{sup -1} NaOH and 9 h reaction time. Consequently, it was possible to prove this process viability, once analyses by infrared and nuclear magnetic resonance confirmed that PTA was obtained in all reactions performed. (author)

    In this work the influence of variations in the borohydrate reduction method on the properties of Pt Ru/C electrocatalysts was investigated. The electrocatalysts were prepared using 1:1 ; 2:1; 5:1; 50:1 and 250:1 molar ratios of NaBH{sub 4} to metals. The reduction was also performed by dripping or by fast addition of the solution. The results showed that Pt Ru nanoparticles obtained by fast addition had the smallest crystallite sizes. It was also noted that the catalytic activity increased as the borohydrate:metal molar ratio increased. The Pt Ru/C electrocatalysts (50:1) obtained by fast addition presented the best catalytic activity for ethanol electro-oxidation. (author)

A una concentración del 0.3 % se logró una mucho mayor reducción de la carga de esporas viables de A. alternata, F. graminearum y A. ochraceus, respectivamente. El ácido peracético podría resultar una alternativa de tratamiento no contaminante para el control poscosecha de la pudrición fúngica.The objective of this work was to determine in vitro the effectiveness of peracetic acid on the load reduction of mould spores that are responsible for rotting in fruits and vegetables to evaluate its potential application to post-harvest control. Three concentrations of peracetic acid (0.05%, 0.1% and 0.3% were used to evaluate its anti-fungal capacity against Alternaria Alternata, Fusarium graminearum, Aspergillus ochraceus, A. niger, A. flavus, Penicillium roqueforti and P. expansum. It was observed reduction of the load of spores using the lowest concentration. This effect was increased with a higher concentration of peracetic acid. It was extremely effective at a concentration of 0.3% against A. alternata, F. graminearum and A. ochraceus. It is concluded that the peracetic acid is a nonpolluting alternative treatment for post-harvest rotting control of fruits and vegetables

    Aside from their nutritional importance, fish are considered one of the most important bio indicators in aquatic systems for the estimation of pollution levels by toxic metals. This is so, since fish can bio accumulate these elements and they occupy different trophic levels and present different sizes and age. The purpose of the present study was to contribute with important data for the knowledge of nutritional and toxic constituents in muscles of the most consumed fish species from two coastal regions, Cananeia and Cubatao. Cananeia fish species analyzed were: Micropogonias furnieri (Corvina), Macrodon ancylodon (Pescada), Centropomus undecimalis (Robalo peba) and Mugil platanus (Tainha). From Cubatao, Micropogonias furnieri (Corvina), Macrodon ancylodon (Pescada), Menticirrhus americanus (Perna de moca), Sardella braziliensis (Sardinha) and Mugil liza (Tainha). For this study, analytical methodologies were developed and validated, regarding precision and accuracy, by means of certified reference materials. Micronutrients (Ca, Fe, K, Na, Se and Zn) and some trace elements (As, Br, Co, Cr, Rb) in fish muscle were determined by means of neutron activation analysis (NAA). Cold Vapor Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (CV AAS) was used for total Hg determination and Electrothermal Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (ET AAS) for Cd and Pb determinations. Proximate composition determinations according to AOAC methodologies and fatty acids profiles by gas chromatography were done in these muscle fish samples. Regarding fatty acids profile from the {omega}-6 family, Tainha species pool presented the highest values (8.9%) and Pescada species pool the lowest ones (4.4%) for Cananeia species. Fatty acids from the {omega}-3 family, Sardinha pool species presented the highest values (31.8%) for all species analyzed. Regarding micronutrients content great concentration variations between individual of the same species and between different species were observed. Discriminate analysis was used for the values for micronutrient content for all fish species analyzed in order to identify samples of similar chemical composition and respective food habits. Concerning populational risk to toxic elements exposure, in this case As and Hg, it was possible to conclude that Corvina and Pescada from Cananeia and Corvina, Sardinha and Tainha from Cubatao presented the highest values for As exceeding the Brazilian legislation limits for this contaminant. For Hg, all the species analyzed did not exceed the Brazilian legislation limits for predatory and non predatory species. Results from this study also suggest that Corvina species can be used as a bioindicator since this species bioaccumulate metals and remains in the estuary until it reaches adulthood. Thus, Corvina can be considered as a good indicator of the conditions of the coastal region where it inhabits. (author)

    This work deals with the study of norbadione A, a pigment extracted from mushrooms and known to complex cesium cations. The study of the acid-base properties of norbadione A has allowed to determine the relative acidity of the seven protonable functions of the molecule and to reveal a reversible isomerization of the double exocyclic bond of the pulvinic moieties. The observed change of configuration is induced by a hydrogen bond of the H-O-H type and by electrostatic interactions. Moreover, the microscopic protonation mechanism of the norbadione A has been analyzed, considering three different study media where the acid-base properties of the norbadione A are compared. In the presence of 0.15 mol.l{sup -1} of NaCl, it has been observed a remarkable cooperativity in the protonation of the enol groups. At last, the use of different analytical methods (NMR, potentiometry and calorimetry) has allowed to study the complexing properties of the norbadione A towards cesium and other alkaline and rare earth cations.

    The many desirable characteristics of technetium-99m have stimulated the development of labeling techniques for different molecular and cellular structures. It is accepted that a variety of factors such the drug chemotherapy can alter the biodistribution of radiopharmaceuticals. The unknowledge of these factor may result in an unexpected behavior of the radiopharmaceuticals. Since patients on chemotherapeutic treatment can be submitted to a nuclear medicine procedure, we have studied in mice, the effect of mitomycin-C on the {sup 99m} Tc-DMSA used for kidney scintigraphy. Mitomycin-C is an antineoplastic agent obtained from Streptomyces caesptosus. The metabolism of this drug produces different toxic and inactive metabolites. Mitomycin-C 0.15 mg was administered in Balb/c female with an interval of 72 hours. After one hour of the last dose, 0.3 ml of 9{sup 9m}c-DMSA (7.4 MBq) were injected and after 0.5 h the animals were sacrificed. The organs were isolated and counted in a well counter. The percentage of radioactivity (%ATI) were calculated and statistical analysis were performed (Wilcoxon Test). The results have shown that the %ATI: has increased in stomach and uterus, has decreased in kidney and ovary; has not altered in pancreas, spleen, lung, heart, liver, thymus, thyroid, bone and brain. The increase of % ATI could be justified by the metabolic process or the therapeutical effect of mitomycin-C. As an effect of this drug is observed in the uptake of the {sup 99m} Tc-DMSA by the kidney, probably an alteration in the kidney scintigraphy is expected. However, the increase of %ATI of this radiopharmaceutical in other organs by the mitomycin-C could be evaluated carefully. (author) 12 ref., 2 tabs.

    Hydrothermal alteration at the Los Azufres geothermal field is mostly composed of calc-silicate minerals that define a propylitic alteration zone, which shows progressive dehydration with depth and temperature increase. A generalized zoning of the calc-silicate zone can be observed, with zeolites in the upper part and epidote-clinozoisite at the deepest levels. An argillic alteration zone overlies the calc-silicate zone and is the dominant surface manifestation of the hydrothermal alteration. In some parts, there is a mineral assemblage composed of kaolinite-alunite-native sulfur-quartz (advanced argillic zone) formed by the interaction of vapor and shallow groundwater. The proto-fluid at the Los Azufres geothermal system is related to a neutral sodium chlorine brine, which favors deep propyllitic alteration (productive zone). This zone is characterized by secondary permeability due to fracturing. At depth the geothermal field is dominated by a pressurized liquid, yielding to vapor at more shallow zone. The gradual change from a liquid to a vapor phase occurs through boiling at depths between 1,200 and 1,500 m, and is accompanied by changes in the hydrothermal alteration mineralogy. The type of alteration passes from proylitic to argillic by means of an oxidation-acidification process, which includes the participation of a gas, particularly CO{sub 2}. Considering the physicochemical characteristic of the brine and the evolution of the paragenetic sequence, the Los Azufres geothermal field could de considered a model for hydrothermal behavior at ore deposits which develop by boiling and oxidation of low sulfidation fossil hydrothermal fluids. [Spanish] En el campo geotermico de Los Azufres la zona de alteracion hidrotermal esta formada en su mayor parte por calcosilicatos (que definen una zona paragenetica del tipo propilitico), los cuales muestran una deshidratacion progresiva conforme se va profundizando e incrementandose la temperatura. Se puede generalizar un zoneamiento evolutivo para los calcosilicatos predominando las zeolitas hacia la cima y la epidota-clinozoicita en los niveles mas profundos. Le sobreyace una zona de argilitizacion que domina las manifestaciones hidrotermales superficiales. En algunas zonas, se tiene la asociacion caolinita-alunita-azufre nativo-cuarzo (zona argilica avanzada) formada por la interaccion vapor-acuifero someros. En el sistema geotermico de Los Azufres el protofluido esta ligado a una salmuera clorurado-sodica de caracter neutro que propicia una alteracion hidrotermal propilitica profunda (zona productoras) y se caracteriza por tener una permeabilidad secundaria debido al fracturamiento. A profundiad el yacimiento es a liquido dominante presurizado para evolucionar a vapor en su parte mas somera. El cambio gradual de la fase liquida a vapor se da por ebullicion a profundidades del orden de 1,200 a 1,500 m, y esta acompanado por cambios igualmente presentes en la mineralogia de alteracion hidrotermal. Ella pasa de propilitica a argilica por un proceso de oxidacion-acidificacion, en donde la participacion de gases, principalmente de CO{sub 2}, es importante. De acuerdo a las caracteristicas fisicoquimicas de la salmuera y la evolucion en las fases parageneticas, el yacimiento de Los Azufres pudiera ser un modelo de comportamiento hidrotermal en el deposito de las menas que se dan por ebullicion y oxidacion de los fluidos hidrotermales fosiles de baja sulfidacion.

    Several physical and chemical tests were carried out to evaluate the influence of the oxalic acid in the uranium (Vi) sorption on the surface of the zirconium diphosphate. The physical analyses consist of atomic force microscopy (AFM) and total organic coal, and the chemists are the calculation of the reaction heat for the hydrate and sorption processes, the reaction speed constant and the sorption yield in the sodium perchlorate systems and of oxalic acid; these tests allow to corroborate that the oxalic acid influences positively in the uranium (Vi) sorption forming a ternary system of ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}/(C{sub 2}O{sub 4})/U(Vi), with a single configuration along the ph interval studied.

    An acidic and oxidizing gel was formulated with a purely organic matrix, xanthan gum, at low concentrations (1 to 2 wt %). This polymer gel was investigated in various media (aqueous, acidic and ceric) by means of rheology: shear thinning behaviour, thixotropy, yield stress... Evidences of unexpected rheological properties in highly concentrated media show that xanthan is quite convenient for industrial projection of this type of gel on metallic walls in nuclear plants, notwithstanding its time-limited resistance to oxidation (about a few hours). Complexation mechanisms between ceric species and polar sites of the polymer led us to characterise acidic properties of our xanthan sample by potentiometric titration and {sup 1}H NMR techniques. The matrix was finally treated by ozonolysis to suppress organic residues, as required to handle nuclear wastes. In acidic medium, ozonolysis of the gel was achieved successfully while in acidic and ceric medium this process showed limited efficiency, needing further investigation to be clarified. (author)

    Full Text Available In order to compare and contrast the efficacy of haloperidol, carbamazepine, and valproic acid in the treatment of Sydenham´s chorea a prospective study including 18 cases of this disorder was undertaken. Age of patients ranged from 7 to 15 years. Ten children were female and 8 were male. All but one had generalized, either symmetric or asymmetric chorea. The patients were divided in three equal groups, and were given a standardized dose of each of the drugs built-up over a week. Following therapy, the six children receiving valproic acid showed remarkable improvement, without side effects. Five patients receiving carbamazepine showed improvement without side effects. Only three of the patients that received haloperidol improved. In the 4 cases that did not show clinical improvement after one week of treatment, therapy with valproic acid led to disappearance of the symptoms in a lapse that ranged from 4 to 7 days. Recurrence related to discontinuation of treatment was observed in two patients. In view of the present results we recommend valproic acid as the first choice drug to treat Sydenham chorea.A fin de comparar y contrastar la eficacia de haloperidol, carbamazepina y ácido valproico en el tratamiento de la corea de Sydenham, se realizó un estudio prospectivo que incluyó 18 casos de esta patología. La edad de los pacientes varió de 7 a 15 años. Diez de los niños eran varones y el resto hembras. A excepción de uno de ellos, todos tenían corea generalizada, simétrica ó asimétrica. Los pacientes fueron divididos en tres grupos iguales, a cada uno de los cuales se le administró una dosis estandarizada de los medicamentos mencionados durante una semana. Luego del tratamiento, los seis pacientes que recibieron ácido valproico mostraron mejoría notable sin efectos colaterales. Cinco de los seis pacientes que recibieron carbamazepina exhibieron mejoría sin efectos colaterales. Solo tres de los pacientes que recibieron haloperidol mejoraron. En los cuatro casos que luego de recibir estas dos últimas drogas sin experimentar mejoría clínica luego de una semana, se instaló terapia con ácido valproico, lo que llevó a desaparición de la sintomatología en un lapso de 4 a 7 días. Se observó recaída relacionada con tratamiento discontinuado en dos de los pacientes. A la vista de nuestros resultados, recomendamos el ácido valproico como droga de primera elección en el tratamiento de la corea de Sydenham.

Assuming that in both cases, gamma radiolysis of aerated aqueous solutions and action of H{sub 2}O{sub 2} / Fe(II) system in the same conditions, the reactive species is the OH radical, we propose the kinetic expressions that are confirmed by our experimental results. Some of the accepted G-values are corrected in view of our results. Al so these results put in evidence mechanisms of molecular repair after radical attack. (Author) 79 refs.

    The extraction properties of octa-phosphinoylated para-tert butyl calix[8]arene (prepared in the laboratory) in chloroform towards uranyl ions from an aqueous-acidic-salty medium (HNO{sub 3}-3.5 NaNO{sub 3}) containing uranyl nitrate salt, was investigated. Two spectroscopic techniques UV/Vis and Luminescence were used for this study. The latter permitted analyze the fluorescence from the uranyl ions influenced by the surrounding medium. Both permitted to learn about the power of this calixarene as extractant towards the mentioned ions. Its extraction ability or capability using this calixarene at 5.91 x 10{sup -4} M towards the uranyl ions was 400% as determined by UV/Vis while fluorescence revealed 100% of uranyl ion extraction. A closed analysis of the results obtained by using these techniques revealed that the stoichiometry of the main extracted species was 1calixarene:2 uranyl ions. The loading capacity of the calixarene ligand towards the uranyl ions was also investigated using both techniques. UV/Vis resulted to be inadequate for quantifying exactly the loading capacity of the calixarene whereas luminescence was excellent indeed, using a 5.91 x 10{sup -4} M calixarene concentration, its loading capacity was 0.157 M of free uranyl ions from 0.161 M of uranyl ions present in the aqueous-acidic-salty medium. The extracts from the ability and capacity studies were concentrated to dryness, purified and the dried extracts were analyzed by infrared and neutron activation analysis. By these techniques it was demonstrated that during the extraction of the uranyl ions by the calixarene ligand they form thermodynamically and kinetically stable complexes, since in the solid state, the 1:2, calixarene; uranyl ions stoichiometry was kept with the minimum formula: (UO{sub 2}){sub 2}B{sub 8}bL{sup 8}(NO{sub 3}){sub 4}(H{sub 2}O){sub 4}CHCl{sub 3}(CH{sub 3}OH){sub 3} the methanol molecules come from its purification. It is proposed that B{sub 8}bL{sup 8} calixarene in chloroform medium is a good extractant for the treatment of nuclear wastes or radioactive wastes containing uranium in a rich aqueous-acidic-salty medium.

    The objective of this study was to determine the utility of {sup 99m} Tc-(V)- Dmsa whole body planar scan in the diagnostic of skeletal metastases. Nineteen patients were studied, having a recent {sup 99m} Tc-HDP bone scan reporting different pathologies (3 normal scans, 5 equivocal scans and 11 with disseminated bone metastases). 72 hours later, a whole body planar scan was obtained at 3 and 24 hours after the i.v. administration of {sup 99m} Tc-(V)-Dmsa. Counts per pixel were determined in regions of interest drawn over metastases sites and in normal tissue, and were correlated with the bone scan. Statistical analysis was carried out by using the Kruskal-Wallis analysis of variance followed by Mann Whitney U test. Other comparisons were done with Momios, chi square and t Student tests. 273 lesions were studied in the whole body bone scan and 184 lesions in the {sup 99m} Tc-(V)-Dmsa scintigraphy (t Student test n.s.). The tumor to normal tissue ratios were 3.3 (+/- 0.521) and the soft to normal tissue ratios were 1.01 (+/- 0.01), Mann Whitney p< 0.01. The study sensitivity was 92% an overall specificity was 97%. As conclusions we have that {sup 99m} Tc-(V)-Dmsa scintigraphy is an useful choice in the diagnostic of bone metastases when the whole body planar bone scan ({sup 99m} Tc- HDP) is equivocal or abnormal. It also points out other lesions such as in bone and in soft tissue. (Author)

    The main of our study was to check the sealing of second mandibular temporary molar pits and fissure, in vitro, with the laser of Nd: YAG, phosphoric acid at 37% and the glass ionomer cement (CIV, Fuji IX GC).The proposal was to check the structural morphologic changes in the laser irradiation upon the enamel surface to watch the pits and fissure sealing with the glass ionomer cement use after the laser irradiation and to verify the efficiency of the 'double conditioning' (phosphoric acid + Nd: YAG). At the same time we watch the evolution of the temperature in the pulp chamber's inside. Our desire was to achieve a therapeutic alternative technic to prevent the dental caries. The Nd: YAG laser parameters were the same: 79 mJ of energy per pulse; frequency of 5 Hz; mean power of 0,4 W; optical fiber on contact of 320 {mu}m diameter; fluency of 99,52 J/ cm{sup 2}, assuming that the only differential was the time of the laser application on the enamel surface. The samples were prepared with this way: Laser Nd: YAG (53 second) + acid + CIV (Fuji IX); Laser Nd: YAG (53 s); Laser Nd: YAG (20 s + 20 s) + acid + CIV; Laser Nd: YAG (20 s + 20 s); Acid + CIV; Control. Through the scanning electron microscopy (MEV) we noticed fusion and resolidification regions due to the laser irradiation and a better adaptation of the glass ionomer cement when we did the 'double conditioning'. Concerning the temperature increase we can conclude that the echeloned period was the best recommended because the temperature was found in a pattern that would not cause any damage to the dental pulp. For future studies we suggest a longer relaxing time between the laser irradiation, a comparative study of this method with other lasers, the use of other sealing materials and the study with the permanent teeth.

    This work studies the effect of temperature on the uranium (Vi) sorption onto zirconium diphosphate in the presence of organic acids (oxalic and salicylic acids). Zirconium diphosphate was synthesized by a chemical condensation reaction and characterized using several analytical techniques, in order to check its purity. This point is very important because the presence of any impurities or secondary phases may interfere with the hydration and sorption process. Prior to the sorption experiments, three batches of zirconium diphosphate were pre-equilibrated with NaClO{sub 4}, oxalic acid or salicylic acid solutions. The hydrated solids were washed and dried and then again characterized in order to study the interactions between organic acids and zirconium diphosphate surface. Uranium sorption onto zirconium diphosphate (pre-equilibrated with NaClO{sub 4}, oxalic acid and salicylic acid solutions) was investigated as a function of ph, organic acid and temperature (20, 40 y 60 grades C). Thermodynamic parameters for the sorption reactions (enthalpy change, entropy change and Gibbs free energy change) were determined from temperature dependence of distribution coefficient by using the Vant Hoff equation. Solids characterization after hydration shows that exist an interaction between organic acids and ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}. This fact was confirmed with the microcalorimetry study, the reaction heat for hydration of zirconium diphosphate in NaClO{sub 4} solution was exothermic (-269.59 mJ) and for hydration of zirconium diphosphate in oxalic acid solution was endothermic (53.64 mJ). The experimental results showed important differences in the sorption mechanisms for the reaction of Uranium with ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7} in the presence and absence of organic acids. For the zirconium diphosphate hydrated with oxalic acid, the sorption percentage was 50% from lowest ph values. For the zirconium diphosphate hydrated with salicylic acid, the initial concentration of uranium was 6 x 10{sup -4} M and a percentage of 10% was observed in the initial reaction and it reached 100% at ph 5.5. A similar behavior was observed for the zirconium diphosphate hydrated with NaClO{sub 4}, but the initial concentration of uranium was 5 x 10{sup -4} M. The temperature had an important effect on the sorption of uranium onto ZrP{sub 2}O{sub 7}. The reaction of uranium with the solid hydrated with NaClO{sub 4} was exothermic from 20 to 60 grades C, and the reaction with the solid hydrated with organic acids was exothermic from 20 to 40 grades C and endothermic from 40 to 60 grades C. In conclusion, the thermodynamic study indicated that the sorption process was activated chemisorption s. (Author)

    Isoascorbic or erythorbic acid is a stereoisomer of ascorbic acid acting as a preservative against oxidation and decoloration, recently approved for food use also in the European Market. Actually erythorbate is produced by means of a complex and long process after bio-fermentation of dextrose. In order to simplify and improve this process a membrane system was conceived able to induce acid 2-ketogluconic diffusion from fermentation broth directly into methanol where it esterficates. Acid 2-ketogluconic methyl ester is the intermediate for erythorbic acid. The principal problem was to perfectly separate water methanol to avoid saponification instead of esterification. [Italian] L'acido eritorbico o isoascorbico, recentemente approvato per uso alimentare anche in Europa, e' uno stereoisomero dell'acido ascorbico e agisce come antiossidante e preservante del colore. Attualmente viene prodotto con un complicato processo dopo fermentazione del destrosio. Per semplificare e migliorare questo processo, e' stato studiato un sistema a membrane in grado di trasferire direttamente l'acido 2-chetogluconico dal brodo di fermentazione al metanolo, dove esterifica. L'estere metilico dell'acido 2-chetogluconico e' l'intermedio dell'acido eritorbico. Il problema maggiore era quello di mantenere separati l'acqua ed il metanolo, per evitare la saponificazione al posto della esterificazione.

    Full Text Available Introduction: Trans-10, cis-12 conjugated linoleic acid (CLA and resveratrol have been shown to reduce TG content in cultured 3T3-L1 adipocyte acting on different pathways. In recent years, the method of simultaneously targeting several signal transduction pathways with multiple natural products in order to achieve additive or synergistic effects has been tested. However, the combined effect of both molecules on lipid metabolism has not been described before. Objective: The aim of the present work was to analyze the effect of the combination of trans-10, cis-12 CLA and resveratrol on TG accumulation as well as on FAS, HSL and ATGL expression in 3T3-L1 mature adipocytes, in order to assess a potential interaction between both molecules. Methods: For this purpose, 3T3-L1 mature adipocytes were treated with the two molecules, both separately and combined, in 10 and 100 μM for 20 hours. TG content and FAS, ATGL and HSL expression were measured by spectrophotometry and Real Time RT-PCR respectively. Results: Both doses of CLA and 100 M resveratrol decreased TG content in mature adipocytes. The combination of both molecules reduced TG accumulation to the same extent as each one separately. No change in FAS and HSL mRNA levels after CLA and resveratrol treatment was observed. ATGL was not modified by CLA but it was increased by resveratrol and by the combination. This combination did not increase the effect caused by resveratrol on its own. Conclusion: Lipolysis increase via ATGL is involved in the TG reduction induced by resveratrol and the combination of both molecules. The combination of these two molecules does not increase the efficacy of each molecule separately in mature adipocytes and thus it does not represent an advantage for obesity treatment or prevention.Introducción: Se ha demostrado que el ácido linoleico trans-10, cis-12 conjugado (ALC y el resveratrol reducen el contenido de TG en el adipocito 3T3-L1 cultivado actuando sobre

    A simple and rapid spectrophotometric method for the determination of ascorbic acid is proposed. Ascorbic acid reduces iron (III) to iron (II) which forms a red colored complex with dimethylglyoxime in the presence of pyridine. The absorbance of the resulting solution is measured at 514 nm and a linear relationship between absorbance and concentration of ascorbic acid is observed up to 14 {mu}g ml{sup -1}. Studies on the interference of substances usually associated with ascorbic acid have been carried out and the applicability of the method has been tested by analysing pharmaceutical preparations of vitamin C. [Italiano] Si propone un rapido e semplice metodo spettrofotometrico per la determinazione dell`acido ascorbico. L`acido ascorbico riduce il ferro(III) a ferro(II) che forma con la dimetilgliossima, in presenza di piridina, un complesso colorato in rosso. L`assorbanza della soluzione risultante e` misurata a 514 nm e si ottiene una relazione lineare tra assorbanza e concentrazione dell`acido ascorbico fino a 14 {mu}g ml{sup -1}. Si sono condotti studi sugli interferenti usualmente associati all`acido ascorbico ed e` stata valutata l`applicabilita` del metodo all`analisi di preparati farmaceutici di vitamina C.

    Molecular targeting therapy has become a relevant therapeutic strategy for cancer. The principle that peptide receptors can be used successfully for in vivo targeting of human cancers has been proven, and radiolabeled peptides have been demonstrated to be effective in patients with malignant tumors. Peptides based on the cyclic Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) sequence have been designed to antagonize the function of α(v)β(3) integrin, thereby inhibiting angio genesis. The conjugation of RGD peptides to radiolabeled gold nanoparticles (AuNP) produces biocompatible and stable m ultimeric systems with target-specific molecular recognition. The aim of this research was to evaluate the therapeutic response of {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD in athymic mice bearing α(v)β(3)-integrin-positive C6 gliomas and compare with that of {sup 177}Lu-AuNP or {sup 177}Lu-RGD. The radiation absorbed dose, metabolic activity (SUV, [18F]fluor-deoxy-glucose-micro PET/CT), renal radiotoxicity, renal and tumoral histological characteristics as well as tumoral VEGF and HIF-1? gene expression (by realtime polymerase chain reaction) following treatment with {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD, {sup 177}Lu-AuNP or {sup 177}Lu-RGD were assessed. Of the radiopharmaceuticals evaluated, {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD delivered the highest tumor radiation absorbed dose (63.8 ± 7.9 Gy) vs other treatments. These results correlated with the observed therapeutic response, in which {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD significantly (p<0.05) reduced tumor progression, tumor metabolic activity, intratumoral vessels and VEGF gene expression compared to the other radiopharmaceuticals. This was consequence of high tumor retention and a combination of molecular targeting therapy (m ultimeric RGD system) and radiotherapy ({sup 177}Lu). There was a low uptake in non-target organs and no induction of renal toxicity. {sup 177}Lu-AuNP-RGD demonstrates properties suitable for use as an agent for molecular targeting radiotherapy.

    Full Text Available The effect of 2-pyridinecarboxylic acid (picolinic acid on trypanosomes of the subgenus Schizotrypanum isolated from the bat Phyllostomus hastatus was determined in this study. Picolinic acid, at 50 ƒÊg mL-1, inhibited epimastigote growth by 99% after 12 days incubation. In addition, trypomastigote motility decreased by 50% after 6h and completely after 24h in the presence of 50 ƒÊg mL-1 picolinic acid. The 50% cytotoxic concentration on HEp-2 cell line was275 ƒÊg mL-1 after 4 days incubation. Altogether, these results indicate higher toxicity against trypanosomes. The inhibitory effect of picolinic acid on epimastigote growth can be partially reversed by nicotinic acid and L-tryptophan, suggesting a competitive inhibition. Furthermore, two anti-Trypanosoma (Schizotrypanum cruzi drugs were also evaluated with regard to bat trypanosome growth. Benznidazole, at 50 ƒÊg mL-1, inhibited epimastigote growth by 90% after 12 days incubation. Nifurtimox, at the same concentration, caused 96% growth inhibition after four days incubation. Corroborating a previous study, bat trypanosomes are a good model for screening new trypanocidal compounds. Moreover, they can be used to study many biological processes common to human pathogenic trypanosomatids.O efeito do acido 2- piridinocarboxilico (acido picolinico sobre um tripanossoma do subgenero Schizotrypanum isolado do morcego Phyllostomus hastatus foi determinado neste estudo.

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The radioprotective action of cysteamine and A.E.T. on the central nervous system of rabbits exposed to a whole-body gamma irradiation (650 rads) was studied. The rabbits were given intravenous injection of cysteamine (100 mg/kg) and A.E.T. (50 mg/kg), 20 minutes before irradiation. Modifications of behavior, arousal, electrical activities of different cerebral structures and blood acido-basic equilibrium were used as criteria. It was concluded that cysteamine and A.E.T. had a pronounced radioprotective action on central nervous system. Arousal was normal. Radiation induced hyperexcitability was reduced. Blood acido-basic equilibrium modifications did not appear to play an important role in radiation induced cerebral hyperexcitability

    La formazione di un legame ammidico é la reazione per la quale esistono forse più metodi disponibili in letteratura. Nonostante tale abbondanza di metodi, non sono molti i reattivi che formano un legame ammidico direttamente a partire dall’acido carbossilico e dalla ammina, che funzionano sia su fase solida che su fase omogenea senza la formazione di molti sottoprodoti e che limitano la possibilità di racemizzazione allorquando si lavori con α-amminoacidi. Molto versatile é ris...

    Introduccion. La hipomielinizacion con atrofia de ganglios basales y de cerebelo (H-ABC) es una rara entidad descrita recientemente. Se presentan dos nuevos casos pertenecientes a una misma familia. Casos clinicos. Caso 1: niño de 17 meses con retraso grave en todas las areas, ausencia de lenguaje y de contacto visual. En la exploracion destacaba una microcefalia con tetraparesia espastica. En la resonancia magnetica cerebral se apreciaba atrofia cerebelosa de predominio vermiano con perdida de volumen de ambos nucleos del putamen y la cabeza del caudado, y patron de hipomielinizacion de la sustancia blanca. En la electromiografia se objetivo un patron de polineuropatia cronica de predominio motor. Presento un descenso de los valores de acido homovalinico y de acido 5-hidroxindolacetico. El tratamiento con levodopa/carbidopa no fue efectivo. Caso 2: niña de 11 meses, hermana del caso anterior. Presentaba un retraso grave en todas las areas y en la exploracion clinica se detecto una microcefalia con tetraparesia espastica. La resonancia magnetica cerebral mostro hallazgos superponibles a los del hermano, con hipomielinizacion, atrofia cerebelosa y afectacion putaminal y de ambos caudados; en la electromiografia, hallazgos compatibles con polineuropatia motora de caracter desmielinizante. Presento un descenso de los valores de acido homovalinico y acido 5-hidroxindolacetico en el liquido cefalorraquideo. El tratamiento con levodopa/carbidopa resulto ineficaz. Conclusiones. Estos dos nuevos casos ayudan a caracterizar mejor esta entidad y refuerzan la hipotesis del origen genetico del sindrome, dado que se trata de dos casos pertenecientes a una misma familia.

    Introducción: estudios recientes sugieren que los niveles bajos de acidos grasos poliinsaturados omega-3 se relacionan con una mayor prevalencia de depresion; sin embargo, los resultados no son concluyentes. Objetivo: evaluar la asociacion entre el bajo consumo de acidos grasos omega-3 y la presencia de sintomas depresivos en jovenes universitarios del noroeste de Mexico. Métodos: se realizo un estudio transversal en una muestra de 706 universitarios de 18 a 24 anos de edad de ambos sexos. La presencia de sintomatologia depresiva se estimo con la escala de Depresion del Centro de Estudios Epidemiologicos (CES-D) empleando un punto de corte ≥ 24. El consumo semanal de acidos grasos alfalinolenico (ALA) y de eicosapentaenoico (EPA) mas docosahexaenoico (DHA) en mg/g de alimento se estimo por medio de un cuestionario de frecuencia de consumo de alimentos validado para la poblacion mexicana. La asociacion del consumo de omega-3 con la presencia de sintomas depresivos se evaluo con modelos de regresion logistica. Resultados: el 67% de los participantes fueron mujeres; en general, el 16,6% presentaron sintomatologia depresiva. El consumo bajo de ALA y EPA + DHA no se asocio con mayor prevalencia de sintomatologia depresiva antes y despues de ajustar por confusores. En aquellos casos con sintomatologia depresiva, los niveles ALA derivados solo de las nueces fueron significativamente menores. Conclusiones: en esta poblacion no se observo asociacion entre el bajo consumo de acidos grasos omega-3 y la sintomatologia depresiva. La posible asociacion entre el consumo de nueces y la sintomatologia depresiva requiere de mas estudios.

    Full Text Available In this study, eighteen olive varieties, originating from Spain, France, Italy, Greece and Algeria, and maintained at the olive experimental station of Boughrara (arid region of Tunisia were evaluated for their oil yield and fatty acid composition. The analysis of variance revealed significant differences among varieties for all traits (p En este estudio, dieciocho variedades de aceituna procedentes de España, de Francia, de Italia, de Grecia y de Argelia, cultivadas en la estación experimental del olivo de Boughrara (región árida de Túnez, fueron evaluadas para el rendimiento en aceite y la composición de ácidos grasos. El análisis de la varianza mostró diferencias significativas entre todas las variedades (p < 0.01. El análisis de “clusters” jerárquico clasificó las variedades en tres grandes grupos. El primer grupo incluía un subgrupo compuesto por siete variedades de aceituna Changlot Real, Koroneiki, Verdial de Vélez- Málaga, Coratina, Lechín de Granada, Cornezuelo y Leccino, que se caracterizan por su alto rendimiento en aceite, alto contenido en oleico y bajo contenido en ácidos palmítico y linoleico.

    Full Text Available La anemia de células falciformes es la enfermedad sanguínea hereditaria más frecuente y es provocada por un tipo anormal de hemoglobina, la S. Su incidencia es elevada en la población mundial, siendo de 1 : 40 en África, de 1 : 400 en la población negra americana y de forma general de 8 en 100 000 personas. Persiste durante toda la vida y el tratamiento está dirigido a prevenir los síntomas y a proteger de infecciones al paciente. Debido a la gran similitud entre la hemoglobina A y la S se dificulta la obtención de anticuerpos monoclonales específicos, por eso se sintetizó un péptido correspondiente a una zona de diferenciación entre la hemoglobina A y la S. En este trabajo se evaluó la respuesta inmunológica en ratones BALB/c, del péptido sintético, como control se empleó un péptido sintético de la hemoglobina A. La conjugación se realizó mediante el método del glutaraldehído y se emplearon dos proteínas portadoras (seroalbúmina bovina o tiroglobulina bovina. Para la inmunización se emplearon dosis de 50, 60 y 80 µg/mL en los peptidos conjugados con seroalbúmina bovina y 60 µg/mL en los péptidos conjugados con tiroglobulina bovina. Los títulos más elevados se obtuvieron cuando se empleó el péptido conjugado con seroalbúmina bovina y se inmunizó con 50 µg/mL .

    Full Text Available Objetivos: Los flavonoides ejercen efectos beneficiosos en la prevención de las enfermedades cardiovasculares. En esta revisión trataremos de clarificar algunas preguntas fundamentales respecto a la eficacia, mecanismo de acción y biodisponibilidad de uno de los flavonoides dietéticos más abundante, la quercetina. Métodos: Se utilizó la base de datos de la National Library of Medicine, Washington, DC (MEDLINE: PubMed. Se recopilaron todos los estudios en animales y en humanos disponibles online desde la creación de la base de datos hasta Noviembre de 2015. Resultados: La quercetina produce un efecto vasodilatador y antihipertensor en modelos animales y en individuos hipertensos. Es eficaz en todos los modelos de hipertensión analizados, independientemente del origen de la hipertensión, del estado del sistema renina-angiotensina, del estrés oxidativo, del óxido nítrico y de otros factores. Paradójicamente, a pesar de ejercer efectos sistémicos biológicamente demostrables, no se encuentra en el plasma tras su administración oral y sus metabolitos circulantes muestran una débil actividad in vitro. La quercetina es extensamente metabolizada en derivados metilados y glucurono- y sulfo-conjugados, que son las formas circulantes en el plasma; y glucurono-, pero no sulfo-conjugados, pueden ser hidrolizados a nivel vascular, produciendo la aglicona matriz que se acumula en los tejidos. La conjugación es un proceso reversible y, al menos con respecto a los efectos vasodilatador y antihipertensivo, el ciclo de conjugación-deconjugación parece ser un requisito absoluto. Conclusiones: Los glucurono-conjugados transportan la quercetina y su forma metilada, y liberan en los tejidos la aglicona libre, que es el efector final.

    Introduccion. El estado epileptico (EE) es la emergencia neurologica mas frecuente en pediatria. Dada la posibilidad de secuelas neurologicas y mortalidad asociadas, requiere un tratamiento agresivo precoz. Pacientes y metodos. Estudio descriptivo retrospectivo a traves de la revision de historias clinicas de pacientes ingresados en nuestro hospital entre 2010-2013 con diagnostico de EE. El objetivo fue describir las caracteristicas epidemiologicas y el manejo de estos pacientes, asi como revisar la bibliografia disponible sobre este tema. Resultados. Hemos recogido 39 pacientes (25 varones) y 51 episodios de EE. Edad media: 4,8 años. Tenian enfermedad de base 22 pacientes. Dieciocho eran epilepticos conocidos y cinco tuvieron un EE previo. De los 51 episodios de EE, 33 fueron sintomaticos, 15 febriles y tres criptogenicos. Los tipos de EE fueron: 25 parciales (de ellos, 16 complejos) y 26 generalizados. El tratamiento de primera eleccion fue benzodiacepinas en 47 pacientes (40, diacepam), fenitoina en tres y acido valproico en uno. Veintisiete pacientes precisaron farmacos de segunda linea: 16, acido valproico; ocho, fenitoina; dos, fenobarbital; y uno, levetiracetam. Diez pacientes precisaron farmacos de tercera linea para la induccion del coma: el midazolam fue el mas utilizado en nuestro centro, seguido del tiopental y el propofol. Dos EE superrefractarios requirieron inmunoglobulinas y corticoides sistemicos por presentarse en el curso de encefalitis autoinmunes. Conclusiones. Debe plantearse el esquema terapeutico del EE desde el inicio de cualquier crisis convulsiva. El tratamiento es escalonado, con benzodiacepinas en la primera etapa, antiepilepticos de amplio espectro y disponibilidad intravenosa en la segunda (acido valproico, levetiracetam en el EE generalizado y fenitoina en el EE focal), mientras que el tercer nivel varia en funcion de la experiencia de cada equipo.

    The soils in the neighbourhood of the Rio Montevecchio-Sitzerri, a stream that flows in the valley below the tailings pond of the Montevecchio-Levante mineral processing plant (SW Sardinia, Italy) are severely contaminated by heavy metals, to the extent that traditional land uses are compromised. Consequently urgent measures are needed both to abate the pollution at source and rehabilitate the contaminated land. This paper is concerned with the problem of soil decontamination using washing and leaching techniques. Laboratory experiments have been conducted in mechanically agitated reactors, using citric acid and acetic acid solutions and brine of hydrochloric acid and calcium chloride. The influence of both reagent concentration and solid-to-liquid ratio has been assessed, and in the most significant cases, the attack kinetics has been determined. The tests showed the brine to be the most effective for removing metals from the soils. Based on the findings of the investigations, the possibility of decontamination by heap leaching has been simulated in the laboratory using the column technique. [Italian] I suoi circostanti il Rio Montevecchio-Sitzerri, che scorre a valle del bacino di decantazione degli sterili dell'impianto di trattamento dei minerali di Montevecchio-Levante (Sardegna Centro-Occidentale), sono caratterizzati da un elevato contenuto di metalli pesanti, che ne pregiudicano gli usi tradizionali. Si rende percio' improrogabile sia la necessita' di intervenire sulle cause all'origine della contaminazione, sia di bonificare i suoli in questione al fine di recuperarli a nuovi usi. La memoria intende portare un contributo alle relative problematiche affrontando la possibilita' di decontaminazione mediante tecniche di lavaggio e lisciviazione. La sperimentazione di laboratorio e' stata condotta in reattori ad agitazione meccanica, utilizzando soluzioni con acido citrico, acido acetico ed una salamoia costituita da acido

    An acido-thermophillic archaebacteria,Thermoplasma strain KO-2, produced poly(A) containing RNA. The isolated poly(A)RNA showed the messenger activity in a cell-free extract of rabbit reticulocyte, indicating that the RNA is mRNA of the archaebacteria. 7-Methylgluanosine 5'-phosphate did not inhibit the reaction, suggesting that the cap structure is not present in the messenger. These results may suggest that poly(A) containing messenger arised at very early stage of evolution prior to the divergence between archaebacteria and eukaryotes.

    LiNixMnyCo1 - x - yO2 compounds (NMC) are layered oxides widely used in commercial lithium-ion batteries at the positive electrode. Nevertheless surface reactivity of this material is still not well known. As a first step, based on first principle calculations, this study deals with the electronic properties and the surface reactivity of LiMO2 (M = Co, Ni, Mn) compounds, considering the behavior of each transition metal separately in the same R 3 ̅ mα-NaFeO2-type structure, the one of LiCoO2 and NMC. For each compound, after a brief description of the bare slab electronic properties, we explored the acido-basic and redox properties of the (110) and (104) surfaces by considering the adsorption of a gaseous probe. The chemisorption of SO2 produces both sulfite or sulfate species associated respectively to an acido-basic or a reduction process. These processes are localized on the transition metals of the first two layers of the surface. Although sulfate species are globally favored, a different behavior is obtained depending on both the surface and the transition metal considered. We conclude with a simple scheme which describes the reduction processes on the both surfaces in terms of formal oxidation degrees of transition metals.

Magnetic ferrite nanoparticles and manganese ferrite doped with manganese were synthesized by coprecipitation method starting with chloride solutions of metals (iron (III), manganese (II), europium (III), gadolinium (III), terbium (III) and holmium (III)) and NaOH 5mol.L{sup -1} as precipitating agent. The magnetic nanoparticles were characterized by scanning electron microscopy, infrared spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction, magnetization curves, and thermal analysis. Most of manganese ferrite particles showed superparamagnetic behavior. After the characterization it was found that the samples synthesized manganese ferrite with more than 40 minutes heating time, crystal structure showed the characteristic pattern of the inverted manganese ferrite spinel type. The stabilization of the samples in oleic acid nanoparticles produced with a hydrophobic outer layer and facilitated by coating chitosan biopolymer, since this has a positive charge. Among the doped samples there was no significant change in the magnetic behavior. Several techniques for characterizing these materials have been used such as X-ray diffraction spectrum in the infrared region, magnetization curves and thermal analysis. The resins were tested as magnetic material for the separation of biological materials. In this paper, are used as biological targets separation of bovine serum albumin. (author)

    Full Text Available As infecções recorrentes do trato urinário inferior (ITU em meninas apresentam um grande número de causas etiológicas. Entretanto tem situações em que não se consegue detectar uma causa. Uma dessas seria o nível de estrógeno baixo. Assim foi objetivo do presente trabalho verificar a ação do estrógeno conjugado tópico em 12 crianças com ITUs de repetição. Dessas 12 meninas 10 tinham a urografia excretora e a uretrocistografia miccional normais e 2 apresentavam refluxo vésico-ureteral e uma delas pielonefrite crônica com disfunção vésico-uretral. O estrógeno tópico foi usado na vulva durante 30 dias, tendo sido medidos os níveis plasmáticos pré e pós-tratamento. Os exames de urina cultura e sedimento urinário também foram solicitados pré e pós-tratamento. Todas as crianças com ITU foram tratadas com antimicrobianos antes do uso do estrógeno conjugado. As crianças foram seguidas por um período de até 4 anos com culturas de urina semanais por 3 meses e depois mensais. Resultados: Onze das 12 meninas ficaram livres de infecções e tiveram suas culturas de urina negativas. Uma persistiu com bacteriúria assintomática por todo o período de seguimento. Nenhuma delas necessitou de antimicrobiano profilático. Ocorreu aumento do calibre anatômico da uretra após o tratamento e a avaliação estatística pelo teste t mostrou nível de significância com p< 0,001 Conclusões: Esses achados sugerem que o estrógeno conjugado de uso tópico pode agir de forma a aumentar a resistência uretral às bactérias, como também promover o aumento do calibre uretral e melhorar a dinâmica miccional Esses resultados necessitam de confirmação através de estudos com número maior de crianças.

    Full Text Available La técnica de elección para el screening de anticuerpos antinucleares (ANA es la inmunofluorescencia indirecta que utiliza como sustrato una línea de células epiteliales de carcinoma de laringe humano (IFI-HEp2, y como antisuero, anti-IgG o anti-Ig totales. Los ANA-IgG son los más importantes para el diagnóstico y monitoreo de las enfermedades del tejido conectivo (ETC, mientras los ANA-IgM son de menor relevancia clínica en estos pacientes. Sin embargo, poco se sabe de los ANA-IgA ya que estos Ac han sido menos investigados. El objetivo de este trabajo fue estudiar la prevalencia de los diferentes isotipos de inmunoglobulinas de anticuerpos antinucleares en los pacientes con ETC y evaluar la conveniencia de utilizar conjugados monovalentes o polivalentes. Se procesaron 100 sueros de pacientes con diversas ETC empleando IFI-HEp2, en los cuales se detectó 38% de ANA-IgA (títulos ≥ 1:80 y 12% de ANA-IgM (títulos ≤ 1:160. En 29 casos se detectó IgA en ausencia de IgM, en 3 casos IgM en ausencia de IgA. En todos los casos los ANA-IgG estuvieron presentes. En 6 sueros se observó un cambio de imagen con conjugado anti-IgA y en 3 con conjugado anti-IgM. Debido a la alta prevalencia de ANA-IgA detectada por IFI-HEp2, se destaca la conveniencia de utilizar conjugado anti-Ig totales en lugar de anti-IgG, mientras se desconozca la relevancia de los ANA-IgA en el diagnóstico, pronóstico y seguimiento de las enfermedades reumáticas sistémicas.The indirect immunofluorescence with epitelial cell line from human laryngeal carcinoma as substrate (IIF-HEp2 and anti-IgG or anti-total Ig as antisera, is the technique currently used for the detection of antinuclear antibodies.

    In the present work some stability studies on Supported Liquid Membranes (SLMs) to be used for chiral separations were realized. In particular, primary aim was to determine how a modification of the support surface influences the SLM stability. First, the procedure for support modification was optimised, making a screening of various compounds (sulphuric acid, nitric acid, chromic acid, sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS), glycerol, oleic alcohol, propylene glycol (PPG), bovine serum albumin (BSA)) and testing their performance by means of contact angle measurements. Next, a second screening was realized by permeation tests in a stirred cell. Finally, to compare the stability of modified with unmodified support in a process of interest for chemical and/or biochemical industries, some permeation tests for resolution of DNB-DL-Leucine were realized in a re-circulation system. Results showed a better surface hydrophilization of chemically modified support and better stability of the sulphonated support. However, in operating conditions a little high stability of the unmodified support was obtained. [Italian] Nel presente lavoro sono stati realizzati degli studi di stabilita' di Membrane Liquide Supportate (SLMs) da impiegare in separazioni chirali.

    Zinc and cadmium monosalicylates of the composition MSal, where M-Zn or Cd, Sal - twice deprotonated residue of salicylic acid O-HOC/sub 6/H/sub 4/COOH (H/sub 2/Sal), are singled out and characterized. When studying thermograms, thermogravigrams, IR absorption spectra, roentgenograms of cadmium salicylate compounds (Cd(OC/sub 6/H/sub 4/COO) and products of their thermal transformations, the processes of thermal decomposition of the compounds have been characterized. The process of cadmium monosalicylate decomposition takes place in one stage. Complete loss of salicylate acido group occurs in the range of 320-460 deg. At this decomposition stage cadmium oxide is formed. A supposition is made that cadmium complex has tetrahedral configuration, at that, each salicylate group plays the role of tetradentate-bridge ligand. The compound evidently has a polymer structure.

    We conducted a 5-year (1989-1993) retrospective analysis on a series of patients screened and treated for tuberculosis in order to determine the epidemiological aspects of the disease in mid-western Madagascar. Pulmonary forms affected 97% of patients, and predominantly men (sex ratio: 1.4); 83% of patients with pulmonary tuberculosis were coughing up acido-alcoholo-resitant bacilli. Haemoptysis and general deterioration, the most frequently met pathological signs, were observed respectively in 62% and 24% of cases. This explains the high rate of hospitalisation (42%), especially for patients with difficult access to services. Significantly, in terms of socio-professional category, live-stock breeders and farmers represented 32% of notified cases, and cattle-traders 18%. We draw attention to the possible role played by Mycobacterium bovis in human case-findings in a region characterised by cattle-breeding.

    Full Text Available The seeds of six forage legumes (Leguminosae were investigated for their protein, tannin contents and fatty acid compositions. The protein contents of forage legume seeds were found to be between 23.1 and 37.2%. On the other hand, the tannin contents of the same seeds were found to be between 0.67 and 6.33%. The fatty acid compositions of these six different species were determined by gas chromatography of the methyl esters of their fatty acids. The seed oils of different Leguminous taxa contained linoleic and linolenic acids as their major components. The seed oils of Lathyrus annuus, Onobrychis crista-galli, Trigonella foenum-graceum, Lotus corniculatus, and Leuceana leucocephala species contain 50.0, 59.4, 69.5, 37.06, and 52.6% linoleic acid, respectively, as the major component fatty acids, whereas in the seed oil of Lathyrus cicer, linolenic acid accounts for 29.7% as the major component fatty acid. The ratios of these fatty acids in the Leguminous genera were found to be highly variable. In the study of taxa, palmitic acid was found in the major saturated fatty acids, on the other hand oleic, linoleic and linolenic acids were found in major unsaturated fatty acids.

    Full Text Available This work showed some peculiarities of fatty acids profile of nine olive cultivars cultivated in a typical olive growing Calabrian area. The cultivars studied were: Cassanese, Coratina, Itrana, Leccino, Nociara, Ottobratica, Pendolino, Picholine and Sinopolese. Oils were extracted by pressure from olives collected for a period of time comprised from October to January. The samplings were repeated for three years. The evolution of the oleic acid content showed an increasing trend in Cassanese, Itrana, Coratina, Sinopolese, Pendolino, and Leccino. Palmitic and linolenic acid showed a decrease in all the observed cultivar. Some cultivars in early ripe stage showed a higher linolenic acid content than the limit established legally. From a hierarchical cluster analyses two main groups were distinguished based on all fatty acid. The same statistical results were obtained considering the oleic/linoleic ratio only, that is a constant parameter throughout the olive ripening.Este trabajo muestra algunas peculiaridades de las composiciones en ácidos grasos de aceites extraídos de nueve plantaciones de olivo cultivados en Calabria.

    Full Text Available Purified pumpkin seed oil was heated either continuously or intermittently for 10 hours at 180±5°C, and occurring changes were evaluated. Free fatty acids (FFA, peroxide value (PV, colour, polar compounds and viscosity increased, while iodine value and unsaturation decreased. Intermittent heating had the more pronounced effect on these changes. Fatty acid profile determination showed non-significant changes in palmitic (C16:0, arachidic (C20:0 and oleic (018:1 acids during heating. Statistically significant decreases were observed in linoleic (C18:2 acid content. These decreases also caused significant increases in stearic (C18:0 acid content. Of the tocopherols, only α-tocopherol was detected, which was reduced during purification and bleaching to 33%. The 10-hour continuous and intermittent heating caused an additional 14 and 23 % loss respectively. High correlations were obtained between FFA and polar compounds, PV and polar compounds, viscosity and polar compounds, IV and unsaturation, and linoleic acid and polar compounds.

    Full Text Available Conventional and high oleic sunflower oils as well as 50% mixture of both of them were heated at different temperatures under well-controlled conditions. Total polar compounds, the main groups of polar glycerides, total polar fatty acids, the main groups of polar fatty acids and the loss of initial fatty acids were quantitated. The most outstanding results demonstrated the primacy of the formation of glyceridic polymerization compounds during heating at high temperatures. After transesterification of the samples dimeric fatty acids was the most significant group of compounds obtained. As expected, linoleic acid was preferentially involved in the formation of polar fatty acids, although the participation of oleic acid became very important at low concentration of linoleic acid. Finally good statistical figures were obtained for the regression of polar fatty acids on polar compounds.

    Aceites de girasol convencional y alto oleico así como una mezcla al 50% de ambos fueron calentados a diferentes temperaturas bajo condiciones controladas. Se cuantificaron los compuestos polares totales, los grupos principales de glicéridos, ácidos grasos polares totales, los grupos principales de ácidos grasos polares y la pérdida de ácidos grasos iniciales. Los resultados más relevantes demostraron la primacía de la formación de compuestos de polimerización glicerídicos durante el calentamiento a altas temperaturas. Después de la transesterificación de las muestras, los ácidos diméricos constituyeron el grupo más significativo de compuestos obtenidos. Como era esperado, el ácido linoleico contribuyó preferentemente en la formación de los ácidos grasos polares, si bien la participación del ácido oleico fue muy importante a bajas concentraciones de ácido linoleico. Finalmente, se obtuvieron buenos resultados estadísticos para la regresión entre ácidos grasos polares y compuestos polares.

    Full Text Available Na América do Sul, alguns canídeos silvestres são considerados reservatórios naturais da Leishmania chagasi. A resposta imunológica desses animais à Leishmania é pouco conhecida, havendo a necessidade de métodos diagnósticos adequados para esse fim. No presente estudo, é descrita a padronização do ensaio imunoenzimático indireto (ELISA para o diagnóstico sorológico de leishmaniose visceral em canídeos silvestres brasileiros. Foram estudadas amostras de soro e plasma de 12 canídeos cativos: sete lobos-guará (Chrysocyon brachyurus, três raposinhas (Lycalopex vetulus e dois cachorros-do-mato (Cerdocyon thous. As amostras de um C. brachyurus e uma L. vetulus, cativos em área endêmica para LV, que apresentavam doença clínica e positividade em testes de Imunofluorescência Indireta e Reação em Cadeia de Polimerase, foram utilizadas como controles positivos. Foram comparados os conjugados anti-IgG de cão e proteína A, ambos ligados a peroxidase, cujos testes detectaram quatro (04/12 e três (03/12 C. brachyurus soropositivos para anticorpos anti-Leishmania sp., respectivamente. As médias das densidades ópticas (DOs das amostras negativas foram nitidamente mais baixas do que as médias das DOs dos positivos tanto no ELISA com anti-IgG de cão (4,8 vezes como com proteína A (15,5 vezes. Os soros de três C. brachyurus positivos no ELISA indireto foram avaliados por Western blotting e identificaram 22 bandas, sendo imunodominantes as de peso molecular de 19, 22, 24, 45 e 66 kDa. Os testes ELISA com a proteína A e o conjugado anti-IgG de cão apresentaram respectivamente concordância excelente (Kappa = 1; p<0,001 e moderada (Kappa = 0,8; p<0,0015, com o Western blotting. Ambos foram, portanto, considerados adequados a avaliações de triagem de animais cuja resposta humoral de anticorpos indica contato com o parasito, úteis para subsidiar estudos para adequação de metodologias específicas para os canídeos silvestres.

    Full Text Available São apresentados dados sobre a conjugação de cafeína e seu derivado cafeinidina com albumina de soro bovino e sua utilização para a produção de anticorpos. Galinhas poedeiras foram imunizadas e as globulinas extraídas das gemas dos ovos. Por ensaios de imunoprecipitação pode-se verificar que ambos anticorpos reagiram com seus respectivos antígenos, cafeína e cafeinidina. Também verificou-se que a posição do radical metil em mono e dimetilxantinas era importante para o reconhecimento antígeno-anticorpo. Metilação na posição N-3 pareceu ser determinante para o reconhecimento pelo anticorpo produzido para o conjugado cafeinidina-BSA. Por outro lado, metilação na posição N-7 foi importante para o conjugado cafeína-BSA. Discute-se as vantagens de um anticorpo sobre o outro e a possibilidade de seu emprego em testes imunológicos para determinação de alcalóides purínicos totais em material vegetal e seus derivados alimentícios.Data on the conjugation of caffeine and its derivative caffeinidine with bovine serum albumin and their use to produce antisera are reported here. Chickens were immunized with the conjugates and antisera were extracted from egg yolks. In immunoprecipitation assays it was verified that both antisera were efficient against their respective antigens. It was also observed that the methyl position in mono and dimethylxanthines played a role in the recognition by the antisera. Methyl at N-3 position seemed to be important for the precipitation by the antisera produced to caffeinidine-BSA conjugate. On the other hand, methylation at N-7 position was important for caffeine-BSA conjugate. The advantages of each antisera and their potential application in imunological tests as a tool to determine total purine alkaloids in plant material and derived foodstuffs are discussed.

    Full Text Available Discarded bleaching earth was used after its reactivation for the bleaching of sunflower, soybean and corn oils. The efficiency of reactivated bleaching earth was compared to the efficiency of virgin activated bleaching earth. Acid reactivated earth (pH 2.5-3 had a slightly higher content in silicone than virgin activated or neutralized reactivated earths. The best results in the color of sunflower and corn oils were obtained when neutralized earth (pH 6–7 was used at 1 and 2 % levels. Acid reactivated earth used at 2 % achieved a higher reduction in soybean oil color than virgin earth (pH 3 at the same dosage. Both reactivated earths reduced peroxide value, iron, conjugated dienes and soap, while they increased acidity and conjugated trienes. Furthermore, these reactivated earths determined higher decrements in the oil induction period than virgin earth. Reactivated earth could be used for 5 cycles for the bleaching of soybean or corn oils and for more than 6 cycles for sunflower oil.Tierra decolorante desechada, fue empleada, tras su reactivación para decolorar aceites de girasol, soja y maíz.

    Full Text Available Se conoce que desde 1893, se había descrito un experimento en el que se demostraba que en el proceso de inmunización de gallinas, el resultado consistía en la transferencia de anticuerpos específicos hacia la yema de sus huevos. Tomando como base este conocimiento, este trabajo se enfocó en demostrar que los anticuerpos de yema de huevo obtenidos a partir de gallinas inmunizadas con una preparación comercial de IgG de ratón pueden constituir una alternativa a sus similares en mamíferos al conjugarse con la enzima peroxidasa y utilizarse como reactivos en técnicas ELISA para la determinación de anticuerpos monoclonales murinos del tipo IgG. Para esto, se desarrollaron esquemas de inmunización en paralelo en gallinas y conejos a los que se les aplicaron diversas dosis del antígeno (IgG de ratón demostrándose que las gallinas son capaces de brindar títulos de anticuerpos aunque menores que en el conejo, sí razonables en sus yemas de huevo contra este antígeno, útiles para procesos posteriores. Se demuestra que el método del m-peryodato de sodio es aplicable a los anticuerpos de yema de huevo (IgY para conjugarlos a la enzima peroxidasa para su uso exitoso en inmunoensayos como el ELISA. El Sistema ELISA desarrollado sobre la base de los anticuerpos IgY mostró en su desempeño algunas ventajas a su similar desarrollado con conjugado de anticuerpos de mamíferos. Este trabajo demuestra que la obtención de anticuerpos IgY en este caso, es una fórmula que reduce los costos de producción de conjugados enzimáticos al menos tres veces, lo que conjuntamente con los elementos bioéticos la convierte en una vía atractiva para complementar los procesos tradicionales de producción de anticuerpos.

    Full Text Available Earthquake-resistant and economical housing is the most desirable need in rural areas of developing countries. These regions often suffer significant loss of life during a seismic event. To enable an efficient and cost-effective solution, a new concept of construction, i.e. a wallette of interlocking blocks with movability at the interface and rope reinforcement, is investigated. The novel interlocking block is made of coconut fibre reinforced concrete (CFRC. The reason for using coconut fibre is their highest toughness amongst natural fibres. This paper describes the in-plane behaviour of the interlocking wallette under earthquake loadings. The wallette response is measured in terms of induced acceleration, block uplift, top maximum relative displacement and rope tension. The applied earthquake loadings cannot produce any damage in the structure, i.e. blocks and/or ropes. The response of the wallette is explained in detail along with correlation of materials aspect with structural behaviour.En las zonas rurales de los países en desarrollo, entre las características principales que deben reunir las viviendas es que sean tanto económicas como sismoresistentes, ya que en estas zonas la pérdida de vidas humanas debido a los terremotos es aun elevada. A fin de hallar una solución que cumple con estos requisitos de manera técnica y económicamente efectiva, se ha investigado un nuevo concepto constructivo: un murete de bloques conjugados con movilidad en el interfaz y reforzado con cuerda. Este novedoso bloque conjugable está realizado en hormigón reforzado con fibra de coco (CFRC, elegida por su alta tenacidad, la mayor de entre las fibras naturales. El artículo describe el comportamiento dentro del plano del murete conjugado frente a las cargas sísmicas. La respuesta de esta estructura se ha medido en función de la aceleración inducida, el levantamiento de los bloques, el desplazamiento relativo máximo y la tensión de las cuerdas

Valores de la humedad relativa y la temperatura del aire fueron obtenidos continuamente, en tres puntos de medida de cada instalación al nivel de las aves, para determinar el índice de temperatura y humedad (ITH. Para los análisis de humedad y pH de la cama, fueron colectadas cuatro muestras en cuatro puntos diferentes en cada galpón, cada dos días, durante el periodo en que fueron utilizados los sistemas de calefacción. Los sistemas de calentamiento en campanas infrarrojas a gas y el sistema conjugado de intercambiador más campanas infrarrojas a gas, proporcionaron valores de humedad de la cama, inferiores a los observados en ambientes calentados por el sistema con horno a leña. En los aviarios calentados por los sistemas de campanas a gas y el horno a leña, los valores de ITH, se mantuvieron en una franja de confort para el bienestar de las aves, pero en el sistema conjugado con más campanas a gas, fue detectado estrés y desperdicio de energía. Para todos los sistemas de calentamiento los valores de humedad de la cama se mostraron adecuados, sin embargo, los valores del pH de las muestras de cama, colectadas en los ambientes de cría, evidenciaron un ambiente básico, tornándolo propicio para el crecimiento de bacterias amonificantes.

    Polymeric membranes were prepared using mass copolymerization of acrylic/styrene with weight proportions of 90/10, 92/8 and 94/6 %, while using the cross-linked divinylbenzene (DVB) monomer with weight proportions of 0.1 and 0.001 % to improve the mechanical properties. The copolymers obtained were sulfonates with sulfuric acid concentrated for 0, 30, 85 and 120 minutes to improve its ionic exchange capacity. The materials were characterized using infrared spectroscopy, thermal analysis (TGA and DSC), cross-linked level with% Gel and acidity using titration with sodium hydroxide. The IR spectrum of the membranes before sulfonating shows the existence of traditional polymer bands used with two signals from homopolymers that are lost and two new signals appearing, corroborating the copolymerization reactions. The thermogravimetry shows a higher decomposition temperature for the cross-linked DVB membranes, while the DSC is not very useful for observing transitions due to the hygroscopicity of the membranes. Finally, the percentage of gel is related to the amount of DVB used and the acidity of the membranes increases with increasing amounts of acrylic acid, sulfonation time and DVB percentage, although this value depends a good deal on the ease of solubilizing the material. The ionic properties of the membranes with better mechanical properties were evaluated with a fuel cell prototype.

    Biogas is obtained from decomposing organic material due to the action of four types of bacteria, in the absence of oxygen: hydrolytic, producers of moncarbonate compounds and acidogenics, producing organic fatty acids and other polycarbonate compounds; acetogenic, producers of hydrogen and CO{sub 2}; homoacetogenic, that can convert a considerable amount of multicarbonate or monocarbonate compounds into acetic acid and; metanogenic, producers of methane gas, the principal component of biogas. To design and build the pilot equipment proposed for this research, a 20-liter container was used with 10 kg of swine feces with identical volumes of inoculates. The aerobic fermentation process was immediate begun, followed by the anaerobic process; metabolic reactions were conducted. A total of 0.119 m3 of biogas was obtained from the anaerobic fermentation of 10 kg of swine feces, 60% (0.0714 m{sup 3}) of which was methane gas and the remaining 40%(0.0476 m{sup 3}) hydrogen sulfide (HS). During this investigation, it was concluded that obtaining this by-product (methane biogas), which can be used as a biofuel, provides an economically and ecologically sustainable alternative that reduces organic discharges (swine feces) into rivers and reduces the energy expenditures of swine farms. Because of the high generation of RSM, the creation of a biogas production plant in Tabasco is proposed.

    ísticas cualitativas y cuantitativas de semilla de girasol y aceites de semilla fueron evaluadas. Dos cultivos de girasol (Gulshan-98 y Sun Cross fueron sembrados en el campo. El tratamiento de estrés hídrico fue aplicado en el estado vegetativo y reproductivo. El análisis de la semilla de girasol mostro que el contenido en aceite disminuyo significativamente (p ≤ 0.05 (un descenso del 10,52% respecto al control debido al estrés hídrico cuando se impone en ambos estado de crecimiento. Ambos cultivos de girasol mostraron respuestas diferenciadas al estrés hídrico con respecto a los contenidos de los ácidos oleico y linoleico. Una correlación negativa significativa entre los ácidos oleico y linoleico fue observada en cv. Gulshan-98 bajo condiciones de déficit de agua en comparación con Suncross en la que tal efecto del estres hídrico sobre los ácidos oleico y linoleico no fue obsevado. Las condiciones de déficit de agua causan una reducción en el ácido linoleico en Gulshan-98, mientras que permanece inalterado en Suncross. Los contenidos de ácido esteárico aumentaron en cv. Gulshan-98 debido a la sequia, mientras que no se observo efecto del estrés hídrico sobre el contenido de ácido palmítico en el aceite de ambos cultivos de girasol.

    Introducción: Se ha comunicado una correlación inversa entre depresión y el nivel sérico de algunos micronutrientes (selenio, zinc, hierro, magnesio, vitamina B y acido fólico). Además, otros estudios han señalado que la suplementar de estos micronutrientes puede mejorar la depresión. La dieta mediterránea proporciona una suficiente cantidad de los micronutrientes mencionados, aunque ningún estudio ha probado si la prescripción de dicha dieta puede incrementar los niveles de micronutrientes en pacientes depresivos. Objetivo: Examinar el impacto de recomendar un patrón dietético mediterráneo en los niveles de micronutrientes de pacientes deprimidos. Material y Métodos: 77 pacientes ambulatorios se aleatorizaron entre un grupo de intervención (recomendaciones higiénico-dietéticas sobre dieta, ejercicio, sueño y exposición solar) y un grupo control. La evolución fue evaluada antes y después de los seis meses del periodo de intervención. Resultados: Los niveles de selenio y de zinc fueron ligeramente bajos en la determinación basal y el nivel de selenio correlacionaba inversamente con la severidad de la depresión (r=-0.233; p=0.041). El grupo activo evolucionó mejor de la clínica depresiva. Sin embargo, no se observaron diferencias significativas en los niveles de micronutrientes después de la prescripción del patrón de dieta mediterránea probablemente a causa de una insuficiente adherencia. Conclusión: Los niveles séricos de selenio, zinc, hierro, magnesio vitamina B12 y acido fólico no aumentaron en pacientes depresivos seis meses después de prescribir un patrón de dieta mediterránea.

    Highly selective Pd electrocatalysts were synthesized by the formic acid method and evaluated as cathodes for DEGFC applications. In rotating disc measurements in acid medium, the Pd/C cathode showed important catalytic activity for the Oxygen Reduction Reaction (ORR). In the presence of ethylene glycol (EG, C{sub 2}H{sub 6}O{sub 2}), Pd/C exhibited an excellent electrochemical behavior and full tolerance to the organic molecule. No current density peaks associated to the EG oxidation reaction emerged and the shift in onset potential for the ORR (Eonset) toward more negative potentials was negligible on this cathode. Moreover, the evaluation of Pd/C in a DEGFC operating at 80 degrees Celsius demonstrated its high performance as cathode. As a comparison, commercial Pt/C was tested under the same conditions showing a limited selectivity for the ORR. The detrimental effect of EG on the Pt electrocatalysts resulted in high intensity current density peaks due to the oxidation of EG and a significant shift in Eonset. Given these results, it is expected that highly efficient Pd-based cathodes can find application in DEGFCs.

En la presencia de glicol de etileno (GE, C{sub 2}H{sub 6}O{sub 2}), Pd/C exhibio un excelente comportamiento electromecanico y tolerancia total a la molecula organica. No surgieron picos de densidad de corriente asociados con la reaccion de oxidacion de GE y el corrimiento en el potencial de inicio para la RRO (Einicio) hacia potenciales mas negativos fue despreciable en este catodo. Como comparacion, se probo un Pt/C bajo las mismas condiciones y se observo una selectividad limitada para el RRO. El efecto perjudicial de GE en el electrocatalizador

    Biodiesel is the common name for fatty acid methyl esters, obtained by esterification (basic catalysis) or trans-esterification (acid catalysis) of vegetable or animal oils with alcohols, and used as liquid fuel. Production involves the reaction, under mild conditions, between the oil and, typically, excess of methanol. Traditional production of biodiesel exhibits some handicaps, such as the shift of equilibrium to fatty acids by using excess of alcohol that must be separated and recycled. As alternative, it is possible to integrate reaction/separation operations into a single intensified unit, a reactive distillation column, followed by a second separation unit. These configurations exhibit several advantages such as shifting equilibrium in the reactive region and, because of the thermal integration with the second unit, energy savings during products separation. In order to design these production sequences taking advantage of steady state knowledge (energy savings) and considering dynamic performance, this work performs a controllability analysis for six possible configurations; open-loop control properties, evaluated by single value decomposition, are probed by implementing PI controllers to the system. The reactive distillation column coupled to a stripper, without reboilers, shows to be the best option in terms of closed-loop performance and energy savings. [Spanish] Biodiesel es el nombre comun dado a metil esteres de acidos grasos obtenidos por esterificacion (catalisis basica) o trans-esterificacion (catalisis acida) de aceites animales o vegetales con alcoholes, y usados como combustibles liquidos. Su produccion involucra la reaccion entre el aceite y, tipicamente, exceso de metanol a condiciones moderadas. La produccion tradicional de biodiesel exhibe algunas desventajas como el desplazamiento del equilibrio hacia acidos grasos debido al exceso de alcohol, que debe ser separado y reciclado. Alternativamente, es posible integrar las operaciones reaccion

El objetivo de este estudio es buscar alteraciones características de las variantes hemorrágicas en el citoesqueleto que permitan diferenciar los cuadros severos y de esta forma permitan alertar sobre posibles brotes hemorrágicos o sobre la severidad de los serotipos circulantes.

    Para ello, líneas celulares de primate (VERO y/o humanas (HeLa, son infectadas con Virus Dengue (DV aislado de muestras clínicas, en células de insecto (C6/36 HT. Después de 5 días post-infección, las células infectadas son fijadas bajo condiciones de preservación de citoesqueleto y después son incubadas con una solución de anticuerpos y fluoróforos conjugados a FITC (para filamentos de actina, anticuerpos anti-vimentina conjugados a Cy3 (para filamentos intermedios, y suero policlonal contra microtúbulos, con una incubación secundaria de suero policlonal anti conejo conjugado a Alexa Fluor-488.

    Full Text Available Molluscicidal activity of Solanum nigrum var. villosum (morelle velue extracts and their fractions were tested against the mollusca gastropoda Galba truncatula intermediate host of Fasciola hepatica. The results indicated that the hydro-methanol (MeOH-H2O immature fruit extract possess the highest molluscicidal activity (LC50 = 3.96 mg/L against Galba truncatula compared with other tested compounds. After acido-basic treatment, the methanolic extract fraction isolated from the immature fruits and the richest in alkaloids was the most toxic (LC50 = 1.65 mg/L. The fractions richest in saponosides obtained from the hydromethanolic and methanolic extracts of immature fruits showed interesting molluscicidal activities (LC50 = 6.15 mg/L and LC50 = 7.91 mg/L, respectively. The observed molluscicide activity could be attributed to the presence of alkaloids or saponosides. So, the immature fruits of Solanum nigrum var. villosum could be substrates of choice for molluscicide activity. In addition, total alkaloids and saponosides present in this plant deserve further investigations in order to identify the active principles and demonstrate their activities on mollusks in their natural habitat. According to the World Health Organization’s guidelines on screening for plant molluscicides, use of these fractions may add to the arsenal of methods to control snail transmitting fasciolosis in tropical and Third World countries where fasciolosis is a common disease.

  17. Origin of highly active metal-organic framework catalysts: defects? Defects!

    Canivet, J; Vandichel, M; Farrusseng, D

    2016-03-14

    This article provides a comprehensive review of the nature of catalytic sites in MOFs. In the last decade, a number of striking studies have reported outstanding catalytic activities of MOFs. In all cases, the authors were intrigued as it was unexpected from the ideal structure. We demonstrate here that (surface) defects are at the origin of the catalytic activities for the reported examples. The vacancy of ligands or linkers systematically generates (surface) terminations which can possibly show Lewis and/or Brønsted acido-basic features. The engineering of catalytic sites at the nodes by the creation of defects (on purpose) appears today as a rational approach for the design of active MOFs. Similarly to zeolite post-treatments, post-modifications of MOFs by linker or metal cation exchange appear to be methods of choice. Despite the mild acidity of defective MOFs, we can account for very active MOFs in a number of catalytic applications which show higher performances than zeolites or benchmark catalysts.

Sin embargo, en los ultimos años se han publicado estudios con resultados variables en cuanto a evolucion neuropsicologica. Objetivo. Analizar la evolucion natural y el pronostico neurocognitivo y conductual de los pacientes con EMBL. Pacientes y metodos. Estudio retrospectivo de 10 pacientes con EMBL, con un periodo de seguimiento de mas de cinco años, durante los cuales se realizo una evaluacion neurocognitiva y conductual. Resultados. En el 60% de los pacientes las crisis se controlaron con acido valproico en monoterapia, y el 80% no presento nuevas crisis durante su seguimiento. El cociente intelectual de la cohorte se situo entre 74 y 93; tres pacientes tuvieron un cociente intelectual en rango de inteligencia limite, y seis, en rango de inteligencia media-baja. Nueve pacientes cumplieron criterios de trastorno por deficit de atencion/hiperactividad y dos asociaban otro trastorno del aprendizaje, uno de ellos trastorno de aprendizaje no verbal, y el otro, trastorno especifico de la lectoescritura. Todos los pacientes presentaron datos de pobre coordinacion motriz y visuoespacial, y tres fueron diagnosticados de trastorno de conducta. Conclusiones. El termino 'benigno' en la EMBL debe utilizarse con precaucion en cuanto a su pronostico neurocognitivo y conductual. El inicio precoz y un peor control de las crisis podrian suponer factores de riesgo de evolucion neuropsicologica desfavorable.

    The conversion of peroxynitrite(ONOO-)to nitrate(NO3-)mediated by peroxy-nitrous acid(ONOOH)has been investigated at the CCSD/6-311G(d)//B3L YP/6-311+G(d,P)level.Two kinds of pathways for the title reaction were found.The results show that the energy barrier ofisomerization through pathway 1 is around 25 kcal/mol in the gas phase.This value is significantly lower than that of isomerization without any catalysts.Thus,it indicates that ONOOH definitely makes the conversion from ONOO- to NO3- feasible.Although pathway 2 does not decrease the energy barrier of this isomerization,peroxynitric acid(O2NOOH)Was obtained;moreover,this is a new pathway for this formation.In view of the results that peroxynitrate anion Can decompose into nitrite and dioxygen.we conclude that our results are consistent with the experimental observation that nitrate,nitrite,and dioxygen are the main final products of the decay of peroxynitrite around pH7.

    To enable utilization of the broad potential of copper isotopes in nuclear medicine, rapid and robust chelation of the copper is required. Bowl adamanzanes (bicyclic tetraaza ligands) can form kinetically stable copper complexes, but they are usually formed at low rates unless high pH values and high temperatures are applied. We have investigated the effects of the variation in the pH, different anions, and UV irradiation on the chelation rate. UV spectra of mixtures of Cu(2+) and [2(4).3(1)]adz in water show the existence of a long-lived two-coordinated copper(II) intermediate (only counting coordinated amine groups) at pH above 6. These findings are supported by pH titrations of mixtures of Cu(2+) and [2(4).3(1)]adz in water. Irradiation of this complex in the ligand-to-metal charge-transfer (LMCT) band by a diode-array spectrophotometer leads to photodeprotonation and subsequently to formation of the four-coordinated copper(II) complex at a rate up to 7800-fold higher at 25 °C than in the dark. Anions in the solution were found to have three major effects: competitive inhibition due to Cu(II) binding anions, inhibition of the photoinduced transchelation from UV-absorbing anions, and photoredox inhibition from acido ligands capable of acting as electron donors in LMCT reactions. Dissolved O(2) was also found to result in photoredox inhibition.

    Full Text Available El fluoroacetato de sodio es conocido como compuesto 1080, fue descubierto por químicos alemanes durante la segunda guerra mundial. Es un compuesto inodoro e insaboro, soluble en agua, la dosis letal 50 en humanos es de 2 a 4 mg/kg. Debido a su letalidad, ha sido retirado del mercado en algunos países incluyendo Colombia. Este compuesto causa efectos bioquímicos y fisiológicos como acumulación de citrato, alteración de los trasportadores mitocondriales del citrato, acumulación de acido láctico, alteración de la regulación de la glucosa y alteraciones hidrioelectroliticas (principalmente en los niveles de calcio. Las manifestaciones clínicas de intoxicación por esta sustancia son inespecíficas, lo que dificulta su identificación y tratamiento oportuno, aumentando su letalidad. El etanol aumenta el nivel de acetato, ofreciendo así un sustrato alterno al ciclo de Krebs y puede ofrecer beneficios en el tratamiento agudo de estos pacientes. Sin embargo, el manejo de soporte es el pilar fundamental del manejo de estos casos. Se presenta un caso de ingestión intencional en un adolescente con diagnóstico tardío y con desenlace satisfactorio.

    The ISO-DALT system of two-dimensional electrophoresis was developed as a series of modifications of the original technique of O'Farrell. We have written a series of recipes and more detailed laboratory procedures that incorporate refinements and ''tricks of the trade'' as they have developed during our use of the system. The present collection is the seventh version in this series and represents the state of art as of May 1984. The seventh edition has been prepared to incorporate the changes that we have found helpful, as well as to add a few new sections such as silver staining, transfer gels, ACIDOs, and BASOs. Although these directions are specific for our laboratory, we hope that they will be helpful in other laboratories as well. Although some disagreement still exists, we recommend that gel patterns be oriented with acid isoelectric points (pIs) to the left and high sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) molecular weights at the top. This results in a system of pI and molecular weight values that run according to the Cartesian convention and facilitates the use of the charge and molecular weight standards described herein. 67 refs., 14 figs.

    Introduccion. El sindrome de Aicardi-Goutieres es un trastorno inmunitario raro debido a mutaciones en siete genes que codifican proteinas llamadas TREX1, el complejo ribonucleasa H2, SAMHD1, ADAR e IFIH1 (MAD5), las cuales estan implicadas en el metabolismo de los acidos nucleicos. A continuacion se presentan dos nuevos casos por mutacion en el gen RNASEH2B, uno de los cuales presenta una mutacion no descrita hasta la fecha. Casos clinicos. Caso 1: varon que consulto porque desde los 5 meses, coincidiendo con cuadros febriles de repeticion, presentaba perdida de los items madurativos adquiridos hasta la fecha. Caso 2: niño de 4 meses que desde los 2 meses mostraba gran irritabilidad con dificultades en la alimentacion, asociado a un grave retraso psicomotor. En ambos casos se constato un aumento de las pterinas en el liquido cefalorraquideo, principalmente de la neopterina, con calcificaciones en los ganglios basales. El diagnostico se confirmo mediante secuenciacion del gen RNASEH2B; el caso 2 presentaba una mutacion no descrita en la literatura medica. Conclusiones. Los casos corresponden a la descripcion clasica realizada por Aicardi-Goutieres. Debe tenerse en cuenta este sindrome ante un paciente con un cuadro de encefalopatia subaguda de comienzo en el primer año de vida, distonia/espasticidad en grado variable e importante afectacion/regresion del desarrollo psicomotor, especialmente si asocia aumento de las pterinas (neopterina) en el liquido cefalorraquideo y calcificaciones en los ganglios basales.

    Full Text Available Introduction. In the second half of the last century skin tuberculosis has become a rarity. With the appearance of resistance to different kinds of pathogenes, HIV-immunodeficiency and decreasing standard of living, the incidence of skin tuberculosis increses. Lupus vulgaris is a chronic form of the secondary tuberculosis of the skin. Case report. This is a case report of a 66-year-old woman who presented with a growing, painless, brownish-red, slab-shaped, jelly, cutanesous mass, 2.5 centimeters in diameter, on the tip of her nose, reaching the mucous membrane of the nose. Results. Apart from accelerated erythrocyte sedimentation rate (43/73 and a positive tuberculosis test (Mantoux 10 TU=25x25 mm, all relevant findings were within reference values. Using Ziehl-Neelsen staining, no acido-resistent bacilli were found. The skin scraping sample, taken from the affected skin and the mucous membrane, was cultivated in Lowenstein medium base, and this resulted with cultivation of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Using three-drug combination therapy for ten months, complete remission was achieved. Conclusion. Successful cultivation of pathogens represents an absolute diagnostic criterion. We present a case of a woman with lupus vulgaris, because there is a small number of cases documented around the world where the diagnosis was confirmed by culture of Mycobacterium tuberculosis. .

    An innovative mechanochemical process has been conceived to recover heavy metals from industrial ashes. The low environmental impact process is based on the transformation of heavy metals oxides into soluble salts. In particular high energy ball milling has been successfully applied on real samples from iron electrometallurgy. Heavy metals extractions higher than the ones resulting from the typical acid attack were obtained. [Italian] A partire da simulazioni termidinamiche, e' stato ideato un innovativo processo meccanochimico a basso impatto ambientale per il recupero di metalli pesanti da ceneri pericolose di origine industriale. Il processo, che prevede la conversione in fasi solubili di metalli pesanti presenti nelle ceneri sotto forma di ossidi misti insolubili, e' stato sperimentato con successo sia su campioni di laboratorio che su campioni reali. In particolare la macinazione ad alta energia e' stata applicata a campioni di cenere provenienti da elettrometallurgia del ferro, con un elevato contenuto di zinco, ottenendo risultati migliori di quelli ottenibili da un tradizionale attacco acido.

    An analytical procedure for the determination of total mercury in wastewaters and natural waters is described. Aqueous samples are fast digested with nitric acid by using the microwave-oven technique; the analysis of mercury is then performed by cold vapor atomic absorption spectrometry (CV-AAS) using two possible instrumental apparatus (batch system or flow injection). Sodium borohydride is used as the reducing agent for mercury in solution (Method A). The use of amalgamation traps on gold for the preconcentration of mercury lowers the detection limit of the analyte (Method B). [Italian] Viene descritta una procedura analitica per la determinazione del mercurio totale in acque di scarico e naturali. Il campione acquoso viene sottoposto a mineralizzazione con acido nitrico in forno a microonde e analizzato mediante spettroscopia di assorbimento atomico a vapori freddi (CV-AAS) in due possibili configurazioni strumentali (sistema batch oppure flow injection), utilizzando sodio boro idruro come agente riducente del mercurio (metodo A). L'impiego della trappola di oro per la preconcentrazione del mercurio mediante amalgama consente di determinare l'analita a livelli di pochi ng/L (metodo B).

    The study of toxic and carcinogenic substances represents one of the most demanding areas in human safety, due to their repercussions for public health. There is great motivation to remove and utilize these substances in other products instead of leaving them contaminate the environment. One potentially toxic compound for humans is strychnine (Sy). In the present study, we attempted to establish a quick, simple, direct and efficient method to remove and utilize discarded Sy in other products based on proton-transfer complexation. First, Sy was reacted with the acido organic acceptors PA, DNBA and CLA. Then, the resultant salts were direct carbonized into carbon materials. Also, this study provides an insight into the structure and morphology of the obtained products by a range of physicochemical techniques, such as UV-visible, IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopies; XRD; SEM; TEM; and elemental and thermal analyses. Interestingly, the complexation of Sy with the PA or DNBA acceptor leads to a porous carbon material, while its complexation with CLA acceptor forms non-porous carbon product.

    Nitrato-(2-hydroxy-5-nitrobenzaldehydo)(2,2′-bipyridyl)copper (I) and nitrato-(2-hydroxybenzaldehydo)(2,2′-bipyridyl)copper (II) were synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction. The coordination polyhedron of the central copper atom in complex I can be described as a distorted tetragonal pyramid whose base is formed by the phenol and carbonyl oxygen atoms of the monodeprotonated 2-hydroxy-5nitrobenzaldehyde molecule and the nitrogen atoms of the 2,2′-bipyridyl ligand and whose apex is occupied by the oxygen atom of the nitrato group. In the crystal structure, complexes I are linked by the acido ligands and the NO2 groups of the aldehyde molecule into infinite chains. In complex II, the central copper atom is coordinated by 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde, 2,2′-bipyridyl, and the nitrato group, resulting in the formation of centrosymmetric dimers. The coordination polyhedron of the central copper atom can be described as a bipyramid (4 + 1 + 1) with the same base as in complex I. The axial vertices of the bipyramid are occupied by the oxygen atom of the nitrato group and the bridging phenol oxygen atom of the adjacent complex related to the initial complex by a center of symmetry. In the crystal structure, complexes II are hydrogen bonded into infinite chains.

    Introduccion. El temblor esencial es el trastorno del movimiento mas frecuente en el adulto. Se ha considerado una enfermedad benigna, pero puede ocasionar una importante discapacidad fisica y psicosocial. El tratamiento farmacologico sigue siendo poco satisfactorio. Su etiologia, fisiopatologia y anatomia siguen sin conocerse del todo. Objetivo. El conocimiento de las bases neuroquimicas es fundamental para el desarrollo de terapias mas eficaces. Se revisan los conocimientos actuales en este campo a fin de incentivar nuevas investigaciones e ideas que permitan mejorar la comprension de la enfermedad y que fomenten el desarrollo de nuevas terapias farmacologicas. Desarrollo. Se revisan los trabajos realizados hasta la fecha en humanos y en modelos animales de neurotransmisores (acido gamma-aminobutirico, glutamato, noradrenalina, serotonina, adenosina), proteinas y otros fenomenos neuroquimicos, como los canales de calcio de tipo T en el temblor esencial. Conclusiones. Se han descrito cuatro disfunciones neuroquimicas que acontecerian basicamente en el cerebelo y el nucleo olivar inferior: alteracion del sistema gabergico, aumento del rebote postinhibitorio mediante corrientes de calcio de tipo T, disminucion de los mecanismos de inhibicion neuronal y aumento de la actividad de los neurotransmisores excitatorios. Estas disfunciones neuroquimicas comportarian un aumento de la actividad de las neuronas profundas cerebelosas con actividad oscilatoria, que se trasladaria al nucleo del talamo y a la corteza motora, y comportarian la aparicion del temblor. Son necesarios nuevos estudios para poder confirmar estas hipotesis y seguir avanzando para conseguir tratamientos farmacologicos mas eficaces para los pacientes con temblor esencial.

    Tetrachlorohydroquinone (TCHQ) was determined by two methods: iodometry and cerimetry. Tritation with aqueous ceric ammonium sulphate using potentiometric end-point detection proved to be the method of choice on account of its coefficient of variation (CV=0.475%) and its excellent accuracy. Chloranil (TCQ) was quantified by titration with aqueous ascorbic acid in acetone-water-hexamethylene tetramine (HMT), the golden-yellow color of the TCQ-HMT complex disappearing at the end point. This method is accurate and has CV=0.396%. [Spanish] Se cuantifico la tetraclorohidroquinona (TCHQ) mediante una tecnica yodometrica y un metodo potenciometrico, basado en el uso de sulfato cerico amoniacal. Se concluyo que el metodo potenciometrico es el mejor, ya que tiene un coeficiente de variacion (CV) de 0.475%, y una exactitud muy aceptable. Se desarrollo un tecnica para cuantificar el Cloranilo (TCQ) por titulacion con Acido Ascorbico en presencia de Hexametilentetramina (HMT) en medio acetona-agua; el punto final se determino por la separacion del color amarillo oro del complejo TCQ-HMT. Esta tecnica presenta un coeficiente de variacion (CV) de 0.396% y una exactitud aceptable. Se realizaron pruebas de hipotesis para verificar la exactitud de los metodos elegidos.

    Ex-situ bioremediation of real-field crude petroleum sludge was evaluated to elucidate the role of co-culture (bioaugmentation) and external nutrients supplementation (biostimulation) under anaerobic microenvironment. Maximum removal of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) was observed by integrating biostimulation with bioaugmentation (R5, 44.01%) followed by bioaugmentation alone (R4, 34.47%), co-substrate supplemented operations [R6, 23.36%; R3, 16.5%; R2, 9.88%] and control (R1, 4.36%). Aromatics fraction showed higher degradation in all the conditions studied. Fate of six selected polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was evaluated during bioremediation. Among these, four ring PAHs compounds showed good degradation by integration of biostimulation with bioaugmentation (R5) while bioaugmentation alone (R4) documented good degradation of three ring PAHs. Lower ring PAHs compounds showed good degradation with the application of biostimulation (R6). Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH) detected the presence of known PAHs degrading microorganisms viz., Bacillus, Pseudomonas, Acido bacteria, Sulphur reducing bacteria Firmicutes, etc. Application of biostimulation and bioaugmentation strategies alone or in combinations documented noticeable influence on the degradation of petroleum sludge.

    In this study, we investigated the impact of soil pH on the diversity and abundance of archaeal ammonia oxidizers in 27 different forest soils across Germany. DNA was extracted from topsoil samples, the amoA gene, encoding ammonia monooxygenase, was amplified; and the amplicons were sequenced using a 454-based pyrosequencing approach. As expected, the ratio of archaeal (AOA) to bacterial (AOB) ammonia oxidizers' amoA genes increased sharply with decreasing soil pH. The diversity of AOA differed significantly between sites with ultra-acidic soil pH (4.5, regardless of geographic position and vegetation. These OTUs could be related to the Nitrosotalea group 1.1 and the Nitrososphaera subcluster 7.2, respectively, and showed significant similarities to OTUs described from other acidic environments. Conversely, none of the major OTUs typical of sites with a soil pH >4.6 could be found in the ultra- and extreme acidic soils. Based on a comparison with the amoA gene sequence data from a previous study performed on agricultural soils, we could clearly show that the development of AOA communities in soils with ultra-acidic pH (<3.5) is mainly triggered by soil pH and is not influenced significantly by the type of land use, the soil type, or the geographic position of the site, which was observed for sites with acido-neutral soil pH.

    Puttaswamy; Nirmala Vaz

    2001-08-01

    Kinetics of oxidation of acidic amino acids (glutamic acid (Glu) and aspartic acid (Asp)) by sodium N-bromobenzenesulphonamide (bromamine-B or BAB) has been carried out in aqueous HClO4 medium at 30°C. The rate shows firstorder dependence each on [BAB]o and [amino acid]o and inverse first-order on [H+]. At [H+] > 0 60 mol dm-3, the rate levelled off indicating zero-order dependence on [H+] and, under these conditions, the rate has fractional order dependence on [amino acid]. Succinic and malonic acids have been identified as the products. Variation of ionic strength and addition of the reaction product benzenesulphonamide or halide ions had no significant effect on the reaction rate. There is positive effect of dielectric constant of the solvent. Proton inventory studies in H2O-D2O mixtures showed the involvement of a single exchangeable proton of the OH- ion in the transition state. Kinetic investigations have revealed that the order of reactivity is Asp > Glu. The rate laws proposed and derived in agreement with experimental results are discussed.

    Introducción: estudios recientes han demostrado los beneficios cardiovasculares de la dieta mediterránea enriquecida con aceite de oliva y frutos secos. Las personas con diabetes, que tienen un mayor riesgo de complicaciones cardiovasculares, podrían beneficiarse en gran medida de seguir ese tipo de patrón alimentario. Objetivos: análisis de la ingesta de grasas vegetales procedentes de frutos secos y aceites vegetales en pacientes con diabetes mellitus tipo 1 (DM1). Métodos: estudio transversal descriptivo que compara 60 personas con DM1 y 60 sujetos sanos. Se recoge la frecuencia de consumo de aceites vegetales y de frutos secos y se calcula el aporte procedente de estos alimentos en ácidos grasos mono y poliinsaturados (ácido oleico, linoleico y -linolénico). Se utilizó un cuestionario de frecuencia de consumo diseñado de forma específica. Se recogen variables antropométricas, factores de riesgo cardiovascular y variables relacionadas con la diabetes. Resultados: el consumo total de grasa vegetal procedente de aceites vegetales fue similar en los pacientes con DM1 frente a los sujetos control (3,02 ± 1,14 vs. 3,07 ± 1,27 Raciones (R)/día, P = 0,822) y de frutos secos (1,35 ± 2,24 vs. 1,60 ± 2,44 R/semana, P = 0,560). El grupo DM1 consumió menos aceite de oliva que el grupo control (2,55 ± 1,17 vs. 3,02 ± 1,34 R/día, P = 0,046). Se detectó un menor consumo de ácido -linolénico respecto al grupo control (1,13 ± 2,06 vs. 2,64 ± 4,37 g/día, P = 0,018), mientras que no hubo diferencias en el resto de ácidos grasos (oleico 28,30 ± 18,13 vs. 29,53 ± 16,90 g/día, P = 0,703; linoleico 13,70 ± 16,80 vs. 15,45 ± 19,90 g/día, P = 0,605). En los DM1 no se demostró una influencia del consumo de las grasas vegetales procedentes de aceites y frutos secos en los parámetros antropométricos, metabólicos y variables específicas de la diabetes. Conclusiones: en las personas con DM1 el consumo total de aceites vegetales y frutos secos no

    . Los residuos proteínicos fueron analizados por sus composiciones en aminoácidos. Los resultados mostraron que la extracción enzimática con celulasa o hemicelulasa podían proporcionar buena calidad en los aceites, ya que sus niveles de ácidos linoleico y oleico registraron valores similares a los del aceite control extraído con disolventes orgánicos. También el valor de índice de iodo fue similar al del control. Por otro lado, el uso de proteasas en la extracción enzimática de aceite de semilla de girasol causó algunas reducciones en los niveles de ácidos grasos insaturados, así como en el índice de iodo. Las pectinasas mostraron una tendencia similar a la de las proteinases con la menor obtención de ácido linoleico entre los diferentes aceites en estudio. Del mismo modo, el uso de celulasas no cambió la composición de aminoácidos del residuo proteínico comparado con el control, por el contrario la extracción con proteinasas causó una disminución de algunos aminoácidos, especialmente lisina, leucina, isoleucina, alanina, arginina y aspártico. A este respecto, el uso de pectinasa se portó de manera análoga al de celulasas.

    Full Text Available El reducido número de casos de cáncer en la edad pediátrica y las dificultades para la investigación, han contribuido a que existan escasos estudios sobre el estado metabólico y nutricional de estos pacientes. El objetivo principal del trabajo ha sido investigar las posibles alteraciones nutricionales y metabólicas en niños oncológicos, y concretamente el perfil de ácidos grasos plasmáticos tras recibir quimioterapia, comparándolo con el de un grupo de niños sanos. Métodos: Se seleccionaron 12 niños oncológicos con edades comprendidas entre 0 y 16 años, que hubieran recibido al menos un ciclo de tratamiento quimioterápico, un mes antes del estudio y que no estuvieran en fase terminal de la enfermedad. Se realizó encuesta nutricional, medición de valores antropométricos, estudio analítico general y perfil de ácidos grasos en plasma. Resultados: No se detectaron alteraciones en los parámetros antropométricos y bioquímicos nutricionales generales. En los ácidos grasos omega-6, se observaron valores más bajos de linoleico y ácido docosapentaenoico, niveles más altos de gamma-linoleico, y niveles de araquidónico normales. En los omega-3, encontramos valores normales de ácido alfa-linolénico y del ácido docohexanoico, y valores más bajos de ácido eicosapentaenoico. Conclusión: Parece vislumbrarse una deficiencia parcial en el metabolismo de los ácidos grasos poliinsaturados en niños oncológicos, con buen estado nutricional y tras recibir al menos un ciclo de quimioterapia. Por ello, son necesarias futuras investigaciones que permitan plantear suplementos específicos.The small number of cases of cancer in children and the difficulties of research, have contributed to there being few studies on the metabolic and nutritional status of these patients. The main objective of this study was to investigate the nutritional and metabolic alterations in children with cancer, and specifically the plasma fatty acid profile

    Full Text Available Sunflower (Helianthus annuus L. oil was coloured with pigments extracted from green leaves. Different amounts (0, 200, 400, 600, and 800 ppm of oleoresin extracted from oregano (Origanum vulgare L. as antioxidant, were added to the coloured oil. As controls, coloured oil without oleoresin (A.C. and pure oil (A.P. were used. The samples were stored at room temperature (10-20 ºC in the dark for up to six months. During this time the oxidation of oleic acid, linoleic acid, peroxides index and the chlorophyll pigments were analized and the colour of the oil was determined. During the first month, only the ratio of chlorophyll to pheophytin changed, whereas all the other parameters stayed constant, independently to the amount of antioxidant added. Since among the treatments A.C. and A.P. not significant differences (p >0,05 were found, for oleic and linoleic methyl ester acids and peroxides index, it can be concluded that the edible, coloured sunflower oil shows an equivalent stability to the pure oil, when stored at darkness for three or six month. There was not observed an evident antioxidant action with the added oregano oleorresin to the coloured oil.Se estudió la estabilidad de aceite comestible de girasol (Helianthus annuus L. de marca comercial sin antioxidantes, coloreado con pigmentos obtenidos de hojas verdes. Al aceite coloreado se adicionó oleorresina de orégano, como antioxidante, en cuatro concentraciones diferentes (200, 400, 600 y 800 ppm.

    Full Text Available This study evaluated the nutritional value of sesame and flaxseed oils and their effects on the lipid and glucose profile of rats fed diets containing different fat combinations. Fatty acid composition, refractive index, and iodine and saponification values were analyzed to characterize the oils. In the biological assay, Wistar rats were fed different diets, whose fat composition consisted of varying combinations of flaxseed oil, sesame oil, and animal fat. The primary constituents of the sesame oil were oleic (28.6%, linoleic (28.4%, and lauric acid (14.6%; for the flaxseed oil they were alpha-linolenic (39.90%, oleic (17.97% and linoleic acid (12.25%. The iodine and saponification values of the oils were within the reference range. Rats fed flaxseed oil-based diets had the lowest serum cholesterol values, whereas rats fed diets with flaxseed oil + sesame oil + animal fat had the highest glucose levels. HDL levels decreased significantly with flaxseed oil. Sesame and flaxseed oils are sources of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA, and the flaxseed oil-based diet had a hypocholesterolemic effect, whereas sesame oil showed oxidative stability since it contains high levels of monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids.Este estudo avaliou o valor nutricional do óleo de gergelim e de linhaça e seus efeitos sobre o perfil lipídico e glicose de ratos alimentados com dietas contendo diferentes combinações de gordura.

    Full Text Available In the present work, the antioxidant activity of different solvent extracts of wheat (var. Inqalab 91 bran was evaluated following different antioxidant assays using canola oil as the oxidation substrate. The bran samples were extracted with 80% and 100% methanol and acetone. A preliminary assessment of the antioxidant activity of the 80 and 100% acetone and methanolic extracts of wheat bran was done by the measurement of % inhibition of peroxidation in a linoleic acid system, total phenolic contents (TPC and bleachability of β-carotene in the linoleic acid system. Additionally, the canola oil samples were stabilized with crude concentrated extracts and subjected to ambient aging (6 months. The extent of oxidative deterioration was followed by the measurement of peroxide-, p-anisidine-, conjugated dienes-, and trienes- values. The results of ambient stored samples revealed a significant improvement in these oxidation parameters. The overall order of antioxidant activity of the extracts as determined by various antioxidant assays was determined to be; 80% methanolic extract > 100% methanolic extract > 80% acetone extracts . 100% acetone extract. The results of the present comprehensive analysis demonstrate that extracts of the wheat bran indigenous to Pakistan are a viable source of natural antioxidants and might be exploited for commercial and neutraceutical applications.

    Full Text Available The influences of temperature, concentration of catalyst and initial concentration of unsaturation on epoxide formation and esters from oleic and linoleic acids disappearance in liquid phase epoxidation reaction by molecular oxygen of soy-bean oil using molibdenyl-acetylacetonate as catalyst, has been studied. From experimental data obtained by a complex factorial design, an equation for epoxide formation reaction rate as a function of temperature, catalyst concentration and unsaturation initial concentration were deduced. A kinetic model is proposed too and using a calculation program based on 4th Order Runge-Kutta numerical procedure to simulate the reactions that took place, the kinetic coefficients and activation energies that best fitted the calculated data to the experimental data were determined.

    Se ha estudiado la influencia de la temperatura, concentración de catalizador y concentración inicial de insaturación sobre la formación de epóxido y desaparición de los esteres de los ácidos oleico y linoleico, en la reacción de epoxidación en fase líquida de aceite de soja con oxígeno molecular usando acetilacetonato de molibdenilo (AAMo como catalizador. A partir de los datos, obtenidos según un diseño factorial complejo, se ha deducido una ecuación para la velocidad de formación de epóxido en función de las tres variables estudiadas. Se propone también un modelo cinético a partir del cual, y siguiendo el método numérico de Runge-Kutta que simula la reacción que tiene lugar, se determinan los valores de las constantes cinéticas y respectivas energías de activación.

    Full Text Available El objetivo del presente trabajo fue investigar el efecto de la adición de aceites vegetales de diferente grado de insaturación a la dieta de cabras lecheras sobre el perfil de ácidos grasos de la grasa láctea. Doce cabras de raza Malagueña fueron asignadas al azar a uno de cuatro tratamientos: dieta basal sin aceite añadido y la misma dieta basal adicionada con 48 g/d de aceite de girasol alto oleico, aceite de girasol normal o aceite de lino. La dieta estuvo compuesta por heno de alfalfa (30% y un concentrado granulado (70% en el que se incluyó el aceite correspondiente. Todos los aceites redujeron el contenido de ácidos grasos saturados de cadena media de la grasa láctea (P 0,05. El aceite de girasol normal incrementó el contenido de los ácidos C18:1t10, vaccénico y ruménico y aumentó el valor de la ratio linoleico/α-linolénico (P 0,05. Los resultados obtenidos permiten concluir que la adición de aceite de lino a la dieta de cabras en lactación, en comparación con la de los aceites de girasol alto oleico y normal, modifica el perfil de ácidos grasos de la grasa láctea en un sentido más favorable desde el punto de vista de la salud humana.

    Full Text Available A crescente demanda por estanho no cenário mundial vem promovendo maior interesse no estudo de mineralizações primárias e mais complexas. Nesse contexto, estudos de caracterização tecnológica foram efetuados em duas amostras (sulfetada e oxidada, provenientes do norte do Brasil, Estado de Rondônia, com o objetivo de verificar as características da cassiterita e dos sulfetos presentes e suas associações com a ganga. Os estudos envolveram análises granulométricas, separações minerais e estudos de mineralogia quantitativa por microscopia eletrônica de varredura (MEV/EDS utilizando análise de imagens automatizada (Mineral Liberation Analyser - MLA, possibilitando a obtenção da composição mineral, as características de associação e de liberação dos minerais de interesse e a partição dos elementos químicos nos minerais portadores. Os resultados indicam que as amostras têm teores semelhantes de estanho e de zinco e a mesma assembleia mineralógica, variando apenas a proporção relativa entre os minerais presentes. O grau de liberação da cassiterita para o material cominuído abaixo de 3,36 mm é da ordem de 40 a 50%. Os estudos sugerem que o processamento da cassiterita poderia ser efetuado em duas etapas de cominuição conjugados com concentração gravítica; os mistos e rejeitos, a depender dos teores de Sn e Zn, poderiam ser remoídos para a recuperação da esfalerita por flotação, obtendo-se ainda um eventual concentrado acabado de estanho.

    Full Text Available El desarrollo de cualquier enfermedad es conjugado con la infracción de las propiedades es estructurales-funcionales de unas u otras células del organismo. El interés especial es llamado por los cambios de los eritrocitos, que membranas son el modelo de la organización molecular de las membranas celulares. En la microscopía clínica habitual no se puede determinar la forma de los eritrocitos. Las células sanguíneas, al igual que otros preparados biomédicos, son los microobjetos de fase. No cambian prácticamente la intensidad de la radiación, que pasa a través de ellos, aportan los cambios sólo de fase en la onda pasada. La microscopía electrónica lo permite hacer, pero es muy costosa y aporta los cambios considerables en la estructura del eritrocito en la fase de su preparación para la investigación. Estudiábamos los eritrocitos de los voluntarios sanos por medio de la microscopía digital holográfica, que permite recibir imágenes en 3D de los eritrocitos nativos. Para el análisis cuantitativo de deformabilidad de los eritrocitos estaba determinado el coeficiente medio de la esfericidad de los eritrocitos, la función de la dependencia de la capacidad oxigenada de la sangre del coeficiente de la esfericidad. Es propuesto el modelo matemático de la dependencia de la funcionalidad del eritrocito del área de su superficie y el grado de deformabilidad.

    Full Text Available La enfermedad meningocócica invasiva causada por N. meningitidis es un problema global de salud pública, por su alta morbilidad y mortalidad. Esta patología es causada en su mayoría por los serogrupos A, B, C, W-135 e Y. La prevención mediante la vacunación es la mejor herramienta para disminuir la carga mundial de esta enfermedad. Las vacunas no conjugadas que toman como base solo el polisacárido externo, aun cuando son beneficiosas en epidemias, producen pobre inmunogenicidad a largo plazo en los niños menores de dos años de edad, que representan la población de mayor riesgo. Las vacunas de nueva generación, en donde el polisacárido es conjugado con proteínas transportadoras, producen respuesta inmune en niños menores de 2 años, lo cual podría producir una reducción importante de la enfermedad en esta población de alto riesgo. Las nuevas técnicas de detección están contribuyendo a mejorar el pronóstico de la enfermedad, al permitir un diagnóstico más temprano y específico, conducentes a un tratamiento más oportuno. La creación de vacunas que confieran una protección más amplia, especialmente contra el serogrupo B, y protejan a la población en mayor riesgo, sigue siendo un reto.

    O objetivo deste trabalho foi analisar, em condições de termoxidação, o efeito antioxidante do extrato de alecrim sobre o óleo de soja e sua repercussão no perfil lipídico in vivo. Os óleos de soja refi nado e com adição de extrato de alecrim foram submetidos à termoxidação (180°C por 30 horas e analisados quanto à estabilidade oxidativa, compostos polares totais, índice de peróxidos e dienos conjugados. O ensaio biológico foi realizado com 32 ratos Wistar, recém desmamados, com 28 dias, em quatro grupos. Os animais receberam a dieta AIN-93G, diferindo apenas no tipo de óleo oferecido. Foram realizadas as análises bioquímicas de Colesterol total, HDL-Colesterol, LDL-Colesterol e Triglicérides. O extrato de alecrim teve um efeito antioxidante sobre o óleo de soja refi nado, reduzindo em 20% a formação de polímeros e produtos de decomposição e em 10% a formação de produtos primários de oxidação. O consumo de óleo termoxidado aumentou signifi cativamente o perfi l lipídico. Já a suplementação com extrato de alecrim na dieta não foi efi ciente como agente protetor.

    Full Text Available Las instituciones de educación superior son espacios complejos, polidimensionales y multivariables que tienen la responsabilidad de modularse a los requerimientos que demanda la sociedad actual. Ante este reto ecosocial, las universidades requieren redimensionar sus procesos misionales para dar respuestas al entorno. Desde esta perspectiva, la gerencia universitaria del nuevo milenio está centrada en un conglomerado de apotegmas entre los cuales destacan la identidad y cultura nacional, el reconocimiento de la alteridad humana, la ciudadanía universal, el conocimiento conjugado y transdisciplinario. Siendo éste un proceso aún en construcción, el artículo tiene como propósito establecer algunas líneas macro de acción que le permitan a la universidad insertarse en ese mundo sociodivergente, intercultural y universal que la rodea. La metodología se fundamentó en el estudio de diversas fuentes documentales, iniciando con los distintos enfoques epistemológicos, teóricos conceptuales, que relacionen el accionar de la gerencia universitaria postmoderna en el paradigma de la responsabilidad social. Concluyendo que la nueva praxis universitaria tiene como umbral constituir un ser integral ganado para una sociedad cambiante y compleja, por tal razón la gerencia universitaria del siglo XXI deberá apostar por la formación de un ciudadano con aptitudes para la comunica ción, el análisis creativo y crítico, el trabajo solidario en contextos multiculturales y sobre todo ganado por y para la comunidad

    Full Text Available A pesquisa se propôs a realizar um levantamento dos aspectos geográficos do município de Nanuque - MG analisando os elementos físicos conjugados com as atividades humanas realizadas ao longo dos tempos e que interferem no ciclo natural da evolução terrestre. Alguns equívocos que perduraram por muitos anos na geografia do município, como a sua posição geográfica dentro do Estado, mudanças no clima devido a diminuição da vegeta-ção nativa foram reparados. Com relação ao meio físico de Nanuque as referencias bibliográficas especificas combinadas com o trabalho efetuado no campo apontam para uma região que se encontra em equilíbrio. A atuação antrópica só foi sentida quando da retirada de grande parte da cobertura vegetal e pela urbanização. Entretanto, a questão de equilíbrio e desequilíbrio, ainda, provoca muitas discussões entre os pesquisadores que perseguem um método que expresse e quantifique com exatidão o grau de um, possível, desequilíbrio ambiental provocado pelo homem. Tentamos neste trabalho não sermos apenas repetidores de pensamentos, mas, sim, parceiros dos pesquisadores que nos deram subsídios, através de suas obras, para a realização desta pesquisa.

    Full Text Available O propósito da presente investigação foi padronizar a reação de imunofluorescência indireta para Pênfigo Foliáceo Endêmico (Fogo Selvagem. Verificamos que a pele humana normal é o substrato ideal e que pode proceder de prepúcio, cabeça, pescoço ou da parede abdominal anterior. A lavagem prévia da pele precedendo a incubação com o soro deve ser evitada pois a antigenicidade pode ser diminuída. O TAS-cálcio preserva as propriedades antigênicas da pele e deve ser preferido como diluente para os soros. Lâminas cobertas com albumina são úteis porque aumentam a aderência dos cortes de pele. A diluição apropriada do conjugado é convenientemente determinada pelo teste de imunodifusão radial (método de Ouch-terlony. Com referência à correlação entre título de anticorpos e atividade clínica, concluímos que um título igual ou maior do que 160 era de mau prognóstico pois estava associado à forma generalizada da doença ou à casos de forma localizada refratários à terapêutica usual. Contudo, esta obervação requer confirmação através de estudos que envolvam uma abordagem clínica apropriada.

El campo de estudio configurado por la Sociolinguística, la Lingüística Antropológica y el Análisis Crítico del Discurso, conjugado con los estudios feministas confieren particular atención al análisis de discurso de las revistas femeninas como agentes de circulación social de la representación de la mujer. En la década del 90, la revista femenina argentina Para Ti publica, entre otros, relatos biográficos protagonizados por supuestas mujeres reales, en los que la maternidad aparece asociada a la realización personal y construye, en torno de estas historias, un discurso que promueve actitudes y posicionamientos. El objetivo de esta comunicación es describir los distintos modos de representación de la maternidad en estas historias personales, y reflexionar acerca de los imaginarios sociales que éstas crean y difunden a través de la revista, a partir del concepto de que la identidad es una construcción de carácter social (Castoriadis, 2001 y de que nuestra sociedad organiza el universo de significaciones acerca de lo femenino alrededor de la ecuación Mujer=Madre (Fernández, 1994.

    Full Text Available The results from his study reveal that the type of fat used during the baking of shortbreads had a noticeable influence on the properties of lipid fractions as well as the correlation among these properties (acid value, peroxide value, conjugated dienes and trienes contents. For low-trans fats, the correlation between acid value and peroxide value was inversely proportional; for transcontaining fats this correlation was directly proportional. An increase in air humidity during baking caused a decrease in the melting temperature of the fractions of fats used in the process, compared to fats from pastries baked in dry air. This may be indicative of a product with a high degree of unsaturation in the lipid fraction.

    Los resultados de este estudio demuestran que el tipo de grasa utilizada en el horneado de mantecadas tienen una influencia evidente en las propiedades de la fracción lipídica y una correlación entre estas propiedades (acidez, peróxidos, dienos y trienos conjugados. Para grasas bajas en trans la correlación entre la acidez y el índice de peróxido es inversamente proporcional, para grasas conteniendo trans esta correlación fue directamente proporcional. Un aumento de la humedad del aire durante el horneado causa una disminución de la temperatura de fusión de las fracciones de grasas utilizadas en el proceso, en comparación con las grasas de repostería horneadas en aire seco. Esto puede indicar la presencia de productos con alto grado de insaturación en las fracciones lipídicas.

    Full Text Available Estudaram-se os efeitos da ovarioisterectomia na densidade mineral óssea de cadelas e da reposição de estrógenos após a cirurgia. Foram utilizadas 12 cadelas, sem raça definida, entre dois e seis anos de idade e pesos entre 5 e 15kg. Os animais, submetidos à ovarioisterectomia, foram separados em dois grupos de seis. Um grupo serviu como controle, e o outro recebeu estrógenos naturais conjugados na dose de 0,01mg/kg via oral a cada 48 horas, durante 12 meses. No dia da cirurgia e após 12 meses, foram feitas radiografias com vistas à densitometria óptica em imagem radiográfica. A ovarioisterectomia diminuiu a densidade óssea, e a reposição estrogênica, na dose utilizada, foi capaz de preservá-la.Effects on bone density of ovariohysterectomy and post-operative estrogen replacement were studied in bitches. Twelve mixed-breed bitches, ranging from 2 to 6 years of age and weighing between 5 and 15kg were submitted to ovariohysterectomy and separated in two groups of six, after a period of adaptation of 60 days. Bitches from the first group were an un-innoculated control; whereas treated bitches received 0.01mg/kg per os of natural estrogen every 48 hours for 12 months. Radiographs were taken on the day of surgery and 12 months later. Variation in bone density was quantified by optic densitometry in radiographic images. Ovariohysterectomy decreased bone density, whereas estrogen replacement moderated the effect.

Por ejemplo, el platino empleado por excelencia como el mejor catalizador para llevar a cabo la reaccion quimica entre hidrogeno y oxigeno, responsable de la produccion de energia electrica. En la busqueda de la optimizacion o sustitucion del platino, es importante contar con una metodologia que permita realizar un diagnostico in situ del estado de dicho catalizador. Este diagnostico involucra aspectos tales como la determinacion de los sitios activos y la carga y la degradacion que el catalizador puede ir sufriendo durante el funcionamiento de la celda. El presente trabajo consiste en el desarrollo de un modelo matematico que alimentado con las constantes de velocidad y los fenomenos involucrados en la reaccion de la evolucion del hidrogeno, produce como datos de salida, las curvas de polarizacion (E vs I) y de espectroscopia de impedancia electroquimica para dicha reaccion. Se considero para la modelacion, al Pt monocristalino preferenciado en las direcciones (111) y (100) como catalizador y usando diversos acidos como electrolitos. Las curvas obtenidas con el algoritmo matematico muestran una correlacion de la influencia del tipo y concentracion de los acidos usados como electrolitos y la densidad de corriente electrica debido a la evolucion del H{sub 2}. Finalmente, este modelo deja abierta la posibilidad de explorar el efecto del cambio en los valores de las variables involucradas en las reacciones de una celda de combustible, lo que nos permitira evaluar in situ el estado y comportamiento del catalizador.

    consecuencias de la desnutrición, proveer el adecuado aporte de nutrientes y prevenir el desarrollo de complicaciones secundarias como la sobreinfección y el fracaso multiorgánico. Al igual que en el resto de pacientes críticos, cuando la ruta enteral es insuficiente para asegurar las necesidades caloricoproteicas, la asociación de nutrición parenteral ha demostrado ser segura en este subgrupo de pacientes. Los estudios que evalúan el efecto de farmaconutrientes específicos en el paciente séptico son escasos y no permiten establecer recomendaciones al respecto. Respecto a las dietas enterales con mezcla de sustratos con diferente capacidad farmaconutriente, su uso no parece aportar, hasta el momento actual, beneficios claros sobre la evolución de la sepsis respecto a las dietas estándar, aunque tampoco hay clara evidencia de que sean perjudiciales. A pesar de que no hay suficiente evidencia para recomendar el empleo de glutamina en el paciente septico que recibe nutricion parenteral, este podria beneficiarse de su uso, dados los buenos resultados y la ausencia de efectos adversos atribuible a la glutamina en los diferentes estudios llevados a cabo en el conjunto de pacientes criticos. No se puede recomendar el empleo rutinario de acidos grasos ω-3 hasta que dispongamos de mayor evidencia, aunque debe evitarse en estos pacientes el empleo de emulsiones lipidicas con alto contenido en acidos grasos ω-6. El paciente septico debe recibir un adecuado aporte de oligoelementos y vitaminas. El empleo de selenio a dosis altas requiere de mas estudios para poder recomendarlo.

DC, and some semi synthetic derivatives against Tenebrio molitor L. larvae, we have developed bioassays directed to quantify repellency, larval mortality, and its effects on the development. Although costic aldehyde caused the maximum repellent effect, all the compounds showed a significant effect at some dose or time, indicating behavioral avoidance. The topical application of costic aldehyde produced the largest increase on the duration of the pupal stage. Tessaric acid exhibited the highest toxicity by topical application at the experiment closure. Both eremophilane-1(10,2,11(13-triene-12-oic, and -costic acids induced some morphological deformities.Con el objeto de evaluar sesquiterpenos aislados de la planta nativa Tessaria absinthioides (Hook et Arn y algunos derivados semisintéticos frente a larvas de Tenebrio molitor L., se desarrollaron bioensayos orientados a la cuantificación de la repelencia, mortalidad de larvas y efectos sobre el desarrollo. Aldehído cóstico produjo el mayor incremento en la duración del estado pupal por aplicación tópica. Acido tessárico exhibió el más alto porcentaje de mortalidad al finalizar el período de experimentación. Los productos eremophilan-1(10,2, 11(13-trien-12-oico y ácido -cóstico dieron lugar al mayor número de malformaciones.

    Introduccion. El estado epileptico electrico durante el sueño (ESES) es un sindrome epileptico caracterizado por la presencia de descargas epilepticas tipo punta-onda lenta de manera muy persistente durante el sueño no REM. En la actualidad, el manejo de esta patologia es heterogeneo y no hay estudios controlados con los tratamientos utilizados, ni se ha comprobado si estos mejoran la evolucion cognitiva de los pacientes. Pacientes y metodos. Se revisan los pacientes diagnosticados de ESES durante 15 años en cuatro centros hospitalarios, se recoge la presentacion clinica, el manejo terapeutico y la evolucion clinica, y se compara con la bibliografia. Resultados. Se seleccionaron 29 pacientes con ESES, 20 de ellos idiopatico y 26 de ellos generalizado. Los farmacos con los que se consiguio mayor control de la actividad electrica fueron los corticoides/hormona adrenocorticotropa (ACTH), el clobazam y el levetiracetam. La mediana de duracion del ESES en los casos primarios fue de seis meses, y en los secundarios, el doble. El 45% de los pacientes mantuvo un cociente intelectual normal y un 40% presento en la evolucion discapacidad cognitiva de diferente grado. Conclusiones. El pronostico neuropsicologico evolutivo suele ser desfavorable y la evolucion cognitiva parece estar en relacion con la duracion del ESES y el area donde este concentrada la actividad epileptica, lo que sugiere que el mal pronostico, si se trata precozmente, se puede evitar. Los antiepilepticos mas frecuentemente utilizados son el acido valproico, la etosuximida y el levetiracetam, y en nuestra muestra tambien se utilizaron con frecuencia el clobazam y la lamotrigina. Los farmacos mas eficaces para el control del ESES fueron los corticoides/ACTH, el clobazam y el levetiracetam.

    A pilot project was carried out to supply electrical services for an ecological hotel (eco-hotel), using solar and wind energy in Southeast Mexico. Fifteen small photovoltaic-wind hybrid systems were designed and built by researchers of the Electrical Research Institute of Mexico (IIE), as part of a cooperation agreement with the mexican company Carrousel Operadora Turistica, aimed at developing a technology package to supply electrical services to similar hotels sited in remote areas. Each hybrid system includes one wind generator of 500W nominal capacity, one PV panel ranging in power from 150W to 320 Watts peak, one lead-acid battery bank of 570 ampere-hour in capacity, and an electronic charge controller. This paper describes the systems and summarizes the results from the first twelve months of operation.

    The Cerro Prieto I Geothermal Field, developed and operated by the Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), has currently an installed electric power generation capacity of 180 MW and is at a very advanced stage in the development of Cerro Prieto II and III, which will allow to raise the generation capacity to 620 MW. During the exploitation of a geothermal field, in producing steam with the purpose of generating electricity, brines and waste gases are obtained. The hydrogen sulfide exhaust to the environment implies pollution problems, for this reason processes have been developed for the oxidation of these gases downstream the turbogenerator either in the flow of separated gases in the steam condensation or in the condensate produced. The Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) has collaborated with CFE in the evaluation of the environmental impact of this gas and in the development of the processes for its abatement. [Espanol] El campo geotermico de Cerro Prieto I, desarrollado y operado por la Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE), actualmente tiene una capacidad instalada de generacion de energia electrica de 180 MW, y se encuentra en etapa muy avanzada, el desarrollo de Cerro Prieto II y III, lo que permitira incrementar la capacidad de generacion a 620 MW. Durante la explotacion de un campo geotermico, al producir vapor con el proposito de generar electricidad, se obtienen salmueras y gases de desecho. La descarga de acido sulfhidrico a la atmosfera implica problemas de contaminacion, por esta razon se han desarrollado procesos para la oxidacion de este gas aguas abajo de la turbina generadora, ya sea en la corriente de gases que se separan en la condensacion del vapor o en el condensado producido. El Instituto de Investigaciones Electricas (IIE) ha colaborado con la CFE en la evaluacion del impacto ambiental de este gas y en el desarrollo de sus procesos de abatimiento.
