    Benzoin balsam is an anthropic exudate obtained from the bark of several species of Styrax trees that is mainly used as a perfume fixative as well as a flavouring agent. Benzoe tonkinensis Laos (also commercialized under the denomination Siam benzoin balsam) displaying characteristic vanilla notes and already being largely used to flavour all kinds of edible goods, was intended to be proposed by Agroforex Company to the Codex Committee on Food Additives for evaluation as a food additive. For this purpose, the present paper reports the phytochemical characterisation of both the volatile and non-volatile fractions of benzoin balsams and the quantitation of some of the major components by gas and liquid chromatography techniques. Four coniferyl and two morinol derivatives were characterised for the first time in Benzoe tonkinensis Laos. Finally, two liquid chromatographic methods used to easily discriminate Siam from Sumatra balsam (also known as Benzoe sumatranus Indonesia) were developed. PMID:27211689

    The ligation behavior of bis-benzoin ethylenediamine (B2ED) and benzoin thiosemicarbazone (BTS) Schiff bases towards Ru3+, Rh3+, Pd2+, Ni2+ and Cu2+ were determined. The bond length of M-N and spectrochemical parameters (10Dq, β, B and LFSE) of the complexes were evaluated. The redox characteristics of selected complexes were explored by cyclic voltammetry (CV) at Pt working electrode in non aqueous solvents. Au mesh (100 w/in.) optically transparent thin layer electrode (OTTLE) was also used for recording thin layer CV for selected Ru complex. Oxidation of some complexes occurs in a consecutive chemical reaction of an EC type mechanism. The characteristics of electron transfer process of the couples M2+/M3+ and M3+/M4+ (M = Ru3+, Rh3+) and the stability of the complexes towards oxidation and/or reduction were assigned. The nature of the electroactive species and reduction mechanism of selected electrode couples were assigned.

  3. Spectrophotometric determination of metformin in pharmaceutical preparations, serum and urine using benzoin as derivatizing reagent

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A simple and selective spectrophotometric procedure is described for the determination of Metformin based on derivatization with benzoin. The Beers law was obeyed with 2.50-12.50 meu mol L-1 at 290 nm with coefficient of determination (r2) 0.997. The experimental conditions in term of pH, reaction time and temperature, and addition of derivatizing reagent were examined. The pure metformin-benzoin derivative was prepared and characterized by FT-IR and mass spectroscopic techniques. The method was applied for the determination of metformin from pharmaceutical preparations and serum and urine of volunteers after spiking with metformin. The results were checked by standard addition method. A number of pharmaceutical additives and serum or urine matrix did not affect the determination of metformin. (author)

  5. Magnetic properties of single crystal alpha-benzoin oxime: An EPR study

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    The electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectra of gamma irradiated single crystals of alpha-benzoinoxime (ABO) have been examined between 120 and 440 K. Considering the dependence on temperature and the orientation of the spectra of single crystals in the magnetic field, we identified two different radicals formed in irradiated ABO single crystals. To theoretically determine the types of radicals, the most stable structure of ABO was obtained by molecular mechanic and B3LYP/6-31G(d,p) calculations. Four possible radicals were modeled and EPR parameters were calculated for the modeled radicals using the B3LYP method and the TZVP basis set. Calculated values of two modeled radicals were in strong agreement with experimental EPR parameters determined from the spectra. Additional simulated spectra of the modeled radicals, where calculated hyperfine coupling constants were used as starting points for simulations, were well matched with experimental spectra. - Highlights: ► Magnetic properties of alpha-benzoin oxime were investigated, which has not yet been studied by EPR. ► Two stable radicals were found out in the irradiated alpha-benzoin oxime single crystal. ► The behavior of the radicals produced by irradiation are interesting and considerable. ► The effect of irradiation on oxime derivatives is important because of their usage in life.

    Predation of herbivorous Lepidoptera larvae by insectivorous avifauna was estimated on Lindera benzoin in edge and interior habitats at two sites in eastern Pennsylvania (USA). Clay baits modeled after Epimecis hortaria (Geometridae) larvae, the primary herbivore of L. benzoin at our study sites, were used to estimate predation by birds. In both habitat types, models were placed on uninjured L. benzoin leaves as well as on leaves that had prior insect herbivore damage. Rates of model attack were greater, and model longevity reduced, in forest edge plots compared to interiors. Naturally occurring herbivore damage on L. benzoin was greater in forest interiors. However, model attack was not significantly greater on leaves with prior herbivory damage, suggesting that birds do not effectively use this type of leaf damage as a cue in their foraging. Our findings are consistent with a contribution of bird predation towards top-down control of herbivory in this system. We further discuss these results in a broader context considering the possible effects of habitat type on leaf quality, leaf defense, and herbivore performance.

    The platinum metal chelates of benzoin thiosemicarbazone obtained with Ru(III), Rh(III), Ir(III), Pd(II) and Pt(II) were prepared from their corresponding halide salts. The complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, conductance measurement, IR, Raman, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and UV-visible spectra studies. Various ligand field parameters and nephelauxetic parameters were also calculated. The mode of bonding and the geometry of the ligand environment around the metal ion have been discussed in the light of the available data obtained. Complexes of Ru(III), Rh(III) and Ir(III) are six-coordinate octahedral, while Pd(II) and Pt(II) halide complexes are four-coordinated with halides bridging.

    New heterocyclic ring systems consisting of (±) methanodibenzodiazocine and imidazolium/benzimidazolium salts were synthesized in very good yield. Subsequently, these halide salts were subjected to the anion exchange reaction with KPF6 to yield the corresponding azolium salts in excellent yield. The possible applications of these newly prepared salts were investigated in homogeneous catalysis. Remarkable changes in the catalytic activity were observed by varying the bulkiness of N-substituent at imidazole. Catalytic activity of these newly prepared salts was tested for the benzoin condensation reaction. Exclusive formation of benzoin products were observed in good yield. Similarly, the dimerization of cyclohexen-1-one to Baylis-Hillman type product, 2-(3-oxocyclohexyl)-2-cyclohexen-1-one was studied.

    Full Text Available Alumina or silica gel are used as catalysts for a solvent-free oxidation of benzoins to the corresponding benzils. These catalysts are easily recovered after completion of the reactions, which are carried out either by heating in a sand bath or using microwave irradiation. Comparison of the results obtained with both catalysts indicates that all the reactants examined were oxidized faster on alumina than on silica under these conditions.

    The introduction of aromatic residues connected by a C-C bond into the non-reducing end of carbohydrates is highly significant for the development of innovative structures with improved binding affinity and selectivity (e.g., C-aril-sLex). In this work, an expedient asymmetric "de novo" synthetic route to new aryl carbohydrate derivatives based on two sequential stereoselectively biocatalytic carboligation reactions is presented. First, the benzoin reaction of aromatic aldehydes to dimethoxyacetaldehyde is conducted, catalyzed by benzaldehyde lyase from Pseudomonas fluorescens biovar I. Then, the α-hydroxyketones formed are reduced by using NaBH4 yielding the anti diol. After acetal hydrolysis, the aldol addition of dihydroxyacetone, hydroxyacetone, or glycolaldehyde catalyzed by the stereocomplementary D-fructose-6-phosphate aldolase and L-rhamnulose-1-phosphate aldolase is performed. Both aldolases accept unphosphorylated donor substrates, avoiding the need of handling the phosphate group that the dihydroxyacetone phosphate-dependent aldolases require. In this way, 6-C-aryl-L-sorbose, 6-C-aryl-L-fructose, 6-C-aryl-L-tagatose, and 5-C-aryl-L-xylose derivatives are prepared by using this methodology. PMID:25640727

    This work represents a novel approach to measuring photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD), and spatiotemporal light dynamics, by utilizing an instrument capable of providing a 15-second spatially-integrated one meter linear average of the PPFD, obtaining measurements at multiple locations and elevations in the subcanopy over a full year for all cloud conditions. Nearly 4,600 individual observations of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR, 400-700 nm) were made over the seven phenoseasons of a deciduous forest in the Piedmont Region, Maryland. Additionally, to quantify of the effect of various photointensities on the physiological ecology of Lindera benzoin L. Blume (northern spicebush) grown in the lab, health was determined by monitoring physical growth and biomass, and by UV-vis spectrophotometry analysis of leaf extract. Results show understory PAR is typically less than 40% of open PAR. Leafless subcanopy PAR values were almost 10 times higher than leafed season PAR, and sunflecks often three orders of magnitude higher than mean subcanopy PAR during the leafed season. Phenoseason is responsible for nearly three-quarters of the variation between plant canopy levels. Spicebush growth occurred at study locations receiving higher incidence of PAR (> 64th percentile). UV-vis spectrophotometry analysis showed significant differences in root to shoot ratios, biomass, initial stomatal conductance, chlorophyll a and b, and carotenoids. Spicebush under lab conditions significantly alter their biomass and individual pigments and pigment ratios in response to high intensity light conditions. Results suggest temporal light sequences in the field may be a very important factor in the functional ecology of northern spicebush.

  7. Spectrophotometric determination of some metal ions using hydrazones

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    In this research many starting materials were prepared, like methyl salicylate and salicylic acid hydrazide from which different derivatives of hydrazones were synthesized by coupling with carbonyl compounds like benzil monoxime and benzil mono hydrazone which are prepared and others like salicylaldehyde and benzoin. The hydrazones that were synthesized are salicylaldehyde salicylic acid hydrazone, benzoin salicylic acid hydrazone, benzil mono hydrazone salicylic acid hydrazone and benzil monoxime salicylic acid hydrazone. These reagents were determined by different methods, IR spectrophotometric determination, the nitrogen content method and melting point determination. These hydrazones act as ligands for determination of some metal ions by making different coloured complexes that were prepared for eight hydrazones with eight metal ions U (VI), Fe (II), Fe (III), Co (II), V (II), Mo (VI), Ni (II) and Cu (II). These complexes were determined by ultraviolet and visible spectrophotometer (UV/VIS) to detect their absorbance and wavelengths (λ max). The two hydrazones salicylaldehyde salicylic acid-hydrazone and benzoin salicylic acid hydrazone, were selected for determination of five metal ions (Fe (II), Fe (III), U (VI), Ni (II) and Cu (II)), using two micelles sodium n-dodecyl sulphate and pyridinium hexa decyl bromide mono hydrate. Their absorbance and wavelengths were detected using UV/VIS spectrophotometer. (Author)

    Experimental evidence involving monomer absorption studies using tritiated styrene is shown to support the proposal that additives such as mineral acids and certain inorganic salts when dissolved in the monomer solution enhance radiation grafting yields by a mechanism involving partitioning of reagents. Photoinitiators such as benzoin ethyl ether and its methyl analogue are reported as new additives for grafting of styrene in methanol to cellulose and polypropylene initiated by ionizing radiation. The partitioning concept is shown to be relevant in analogous UV grafting and curing processes. (author)

    The fluorometric assay of DNA alkaline unwinding, developed by Birnboim and Jevcak (Cancer Res 41: 1889-1892, 1981) was applied to rat liver DNA, after treatment in vivo. N-nitrosodimethylamine, for which DNA damage in rat liver has been extensively investigated, was tested as a standard compound. The results were in complete agreement (both in terms of damage and repair) with data from the literature and with our own results obtained with other methods of detecting DNA alkaline fragmentation. Sensitivity was also of the same order of that of usual methods, with the effect of 0.3 mg/Kg of N-nitrosodimethylamine being detectable. Other DNA damaging carcinogens such as 1,2-dimethylhydrazine, 2-naphthylamine and dacarbazine were also correctly detected. Compounds like nitrofurantoin, benzoin and caprolactam, which appeared clearly positive with the alkaline elution technique, but for which genotoxicity and carcinogenicity are doubtful (nitrofurantoin) or most likely negative (benzoin and caprolactam), gave negative results with this method. This is also in agreement with previous results, observed using a different approach to measuring DNA unwinding. On the basis of these and other observations, we suggest that, under certain conditions, the alkaline elution technique is perhaps not only sensitive to DNA breaks but also to changes in chromatin conformation. Unwinding methods could be more specific in the detection of DNA fragmentations. PMID:3674758

    The study of N-heterocyclic carbenes (NHCs) as organocatalysts has proliferated in recent years, and they have been found to be useful in a variety of reactions. In an attempt to further expand their utility and to study their recyclability, we designed and synthesized a series of self-supported NHCs in which the catalytic carbene groups form part of a densely functionalized polymer backbone, and studied them as organocatalysts. Of the self-Supported NHCs examined, a benzimidazole derived polymer with flexible linkers connecting the catalytic groups was found to be the most efficient organocatalyst in a model benzoin condensation reaction, and thus it was used in a variety of such reactions, including some involving catalyst recycling. Furthermore, it was also used to catalyze a set of redox esterification reactions involving conjugated unsaturated aldehydes. In all of these reactions the catalyst afforded good yield of the desired product and its polymeric nature facilitated product purification. PMID:27556435

    The possibility of curing of epoxy resin induced by femtosecond laser beam was explored through choosing different initiators . Absorption spectroscopy, infrared spectroscopy (IR), stereomicroscopy and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were applied to analyze the structure of epoxy resin systems after irradiation with a femtosecond laser beam. The experimental results show that the epoxy resin systems containing diaryliodonium salts can be cured by irradiation of Jemtosecond laser pulse, while the systems containing benzoin can not be cured. It is found that diaryliodonium salts decompose under the irradiation of femtosecond laser pulse through multi ( two ) -photon absorption, initiating the ring-opening polymerization of epoxy resin. And the appearance of cured area has a sheet structure consisting of many tiny lamellar structures.

From antimicrobial study, the leaf has very good sensitivity against both gram+ve and gram-ve organisms and fungi. The highest % of zone of inhibition indicates that the leaf can be very well useful in candidiaisi.

  18. Complexes of zinc, cadmium and mercury with some schiff bases

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Two type of complexes with different stoichiometries were isolated for zinc (II), cadmium(II) and mercury (II). These complexes having the general formulate [M (H2L)] X2 and [M(L)] (where H2L and L represent the neutral and dibasic from of the ligand derived from the condensation of benzoin with o-phenylene diamine and X2 CI- or NO3-) were prepared by the reaction of the mentioned metal salts with the ligand in both neutral and alkaline solutions. Characterization of the complexes was carried out by analytical, spectral and physical studies. In type I complexes, the ligand coordinates through both azomethine nitrogen and alcohlic oxygen atoms acting as neutral tetradentate. For type II complexes, the coordination occurs through both azomethine nitrogen and deprotonated alcoholic oxygen atoms, for which the ligand acts as dibasic tetradentate. In all complexes, the metal ions are tetracoordinated with the most probable tetrahedral geometry (author). 17 refs.; 1 fig., 3 tabs

  19. Separation and purification of fission 99Mo from neutron irradiated UAl3 alloy

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A method has been developed for the separation of fission product 99Mo from irradiated uranium aluminum alloy. The method consists of dissolution of the irradiated target in 6 M NaOH, whereby only aluminium along with 99Mo, 131I and 103Ru get into the solution with traces of 95Zr, 95Nb and 132Te, while all other fission products, activation products (239Np) and uranium remain as solid residue. Al(OH)3 precipitation at lower pH (8-9) removed some of the impurities, e.g. 95Zr, 95Nb, 132Te while AgI/AgIO3 precipitation removed almost all the 131I. 103Ru was removed by addition of NaBiO3 and evaporation to dryness. Subsequently 99Mo was purified by precipitation as Mo-α-benzoin oxime which was dissolved in dilute NaOH. This was subjected to organic impurity and trace iodine separation by passing through silver coated activated charcoal. Final purification was carried out by anion exchange separation. 99Mo was obtained with an overall recovery of 80%. Purity of the 99Mo product was found to be in agreement with the US and European pharmacopoeia. (author)

    Full Text Available TCD is a kind of organic acid that is isolated from cinnamon bark or benzoin. TCD has significant antioxidant activity and is widely used in pharmaceutical, cosmetic, and food additives. But TCD has shortcomings of low bioavailability due to poor water solubility. Therefore, we use ethanol as a solvent, deionized water as antisolvent, and hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC as the surfactant to prepare TCD nanoparticle powder. The optimum preparation conditions were determined as follows: TCD-ethanol solution concentration was 170 mg/mL, the volume ratio of antisolvent was 4 times that of solvent, and the amount of the surfactant was 0.3% stirred for 10 min by 2500 rpm; TCD nanoparticle with a mean particle size (MPS of 130±12.5 nm is obtained under the optimum conditions. SEM, FT-IR, LC-MS/MS, XRD, and DSC were used to characterize the TCD nanoparticle. The results showed that the chemical structure of TCD nanoparticle was not changed, but the crystallization was significantly reduced. Solubility, dissolution rate, antioxidant activity, the in vitro transdermal penetration, and bioavailability of TCD nanoparticles were all much better than these of the raw TCD. These results suggested that TCD nanoparticle might have potential value to become a new oral or transdermal TCD formulation with high bioavailability.

  1. New 'one-step' method for the simultaneous synthesis and anchoring of organic monolith inside COC microchip channels

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A new method for monolith synthesis and anchoring inside cyclic olefin copolymer (COC) microchannels in a single step is proposed. It is shown that type I photo-initiators, typically used in a polymerization mixture to generate free radicals during monolith synthesis, can simultaneously act as type II photo-initiators and react with the plastic surface through hydrogen abstraction. This mechanism is used to 'photo-graft' poly(ethylene glycol) methacrylate (PEGMA) on COC surfaces. Contact angle measurements were used to observe the changes in surface hydrophilicity when increasing initiator concentration and irradiation duration. The ability of type I photo-initiators to synthesize and anchor a monolith inside COC microchannels in a single step was proved through SEM observations. Different concentrations of photo-initiators were tried. Finally, electro-chromatographic separations of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were realized to illustrate the beneficial effect of anchoring on chromatographic performances. The versatility of the method was demonstrated with two widely used photo-initiators: benzoin methyl ether (BME) and azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN). (authors)

  2. PhytoBeta imager: a positron imager for plant biology

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Several positron emitting radioisotopes such as 11C and 13N can be used in plant biology research. The 11CO2 tracer is used to facilitate plant biology research toward optimization of plant productivity, biofuel development and carbon sequestration in biomass. Positron emission tomography (PET) imaging has been used to study carbon transport in live plants using 11CO2. Because plants typically have very thin leaves, little medium is present for the emitted positrons to undergo an annihilation event. The emitted positrons from 11C (maximum energy 960 keV) could require up to approximately 4 mm of water equivalent material for positron annihilation. Thus many of the positrons do not annihilate inside the leaf, resulting in limited sensitivity for PET imaging. To address this problem we have developed a compact beta-positive, beta-minus particle imager (PhytoBeta imager) for 11CO2 leaf imaging. The detector is based on a Hamamatsu H8500 position sensitive photomultiplier tube optically coupled via optical grease to a 0.5 mm thick Eljen EJ-212 plastic scintillator. The detector is equipped with a flexible arm to allow its placement and orientation over or under the leaf to be studied while maintaining the leaf's original orientation. To test the utility of the system the detector was used to measure carbon translocation in a leaf of the spicebush (Lindera benzoin) under two transient light conditions. (paper)

  3. Part I: RNA hydrolysis catalyzed by imidazole compounds. Part II. Hydrophobic acceleration of reactions and mimics of thiamin-dependent enzymes

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Catalysts modeled after the active site groups of the enzyme Ribonuclease A were synthesized and tested for catalysis of the hydrolysis of poly(rU), using a quantitative assay. The most effective of all the catalysts is N,N'-bis-imidazolylmethane, which gave a four-fold rate enhancement as compared to N-methyl-imidazole. The structure/activity relationships are discussed in light of the ribonuclease mechanism. Also examined were reactions catalyzed by the coenzyme thiamine. In an investigation of the effects of restricting conformational freedom, a thiazolium salt was attached in two positions to β-cyclodextrin. Since the catalyst gave about the same rate for tritium exchange from benzaldehyde as singly-attached catalysts, we surmise that any rate enhancement due to the restriction of bond rotations has been lost by forcing the structure into less productive conformations. The benzoin condensation catalyzed by cyanide was also investigated. The reaction was shown to be faster in water than in most organic solvents. Kinetic salt effects and the effects of added β- and γ-cyclodextrin were measured in water; salting-out ions and γ-cyclodextrin increase the rate, while salting-in ions and β-cyclodextrin decrease it. Negative salt effects were observed in formamide, ethylene glycol, and DMSO. All these media effects are discussed in relation to the compact, hydrophobic transition state for the reaction

    Dipicolinate vanadium(V) complexes oxidize lignin model complexes pinacol monomethyl ether (A), 2-phenoxyethanol (B), 1-phenyl-2-phenoxyethanol (C), and 1,2-diphenyl-2-methoxyethanol (D). With substrates having C-H bonds adjacent to the alcohol moiety (B-D), the C-H bond is broken in pyridine-d(5) solvent, yielding 2-phenoxyacetaldehyde from B, 2-phenoxyacetophenone from C, and benzoin methyl ether from D. In DMSO-d(6) solvent the reaction is slower, and both C-H and C-C bond cleavage products are observed for D. The vanadium(IV) products of these reactions have been identified and characterized. Catalytic oxidation of C and D has been demonstrated using air and (dipic)V(O)O(i)Pr. For both substrates, the C-C bond between the alcohol and ether groups is broken in the catalytic oxidation. 1-Phenyl-2-phenoxyethanol is oxidized to a mixture of phenol, formic acid, benzoic acid, and 2-methoxyacetophenone. The products of oxidation of 1,2-diphenyl-2-methoxyethanol depend on the solvent; in DMSO benzaldehyde and methanol are the major products, while benzoic acid and methyl benzoate are the major products obtained in pyridine solvent. Phenyl substituents on the model complex facilitate the oxidation, with relative rates of oxidation D > C > B. PMID:20491453

  5. Polyoxyethylene/styrene - a model system for studying reaction-induced phase separation (RIPS)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Full text: Reaction-induced, phase-separation has been studied in polymer blends. A model crystalline-amorphous system consisted of semi-crystalline polyoxyethylene (POE) dissolved in the monomer styrene, which was employed as a reactive solvent to ease processing. When the styrene was polymerised to polystyrene (PS) in the mould, phase-separation and phase-inversion are induced, and a polymer blend was formed. POE was selected with a molar mass, Mn = 8578 g mol-1 and a polydispersity of 1.19 as determined using GPC. The polymerisation of styrene was initiated using 1 wt-% benzoin methyl ether (BME) and 0.2 wt-% 2,2'-azobisisobutyronitrile (AIBN) under ultra-violet (UV) light. The polymerisation kinetics were determined by monitoring the reduction in the intensity of the C=C stretching vibration band at 1631 cm -1 in the Raman spectrum of styrene. The onset times for the liquid-solid (L-S) phase-separation and crystallisation of POE from styrene/PS were observed using simultaneous small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and wide-angle X-ray scattering (WAXS). Onset times for L-S phase-separation determined from the SAXS data were combined with the styrene polymerisation kinetics to plot the L-S phase-separation data onto a ternary phase diagram for the reactive system POE/styrene/PS at 45 and 50 deg C

  6. Safeguards on nuclear materials and chemical analyses for fuel fabrication

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Spectrofluorimetry with benzoin and spectrophotometry with methylene blue have been tried to develop a routine analytical method of determining trace amount of boron in nuclear and cladding materials. Both methods may be utilized for the boron micro-analysis although many technical difficulties are still expected. A satisfactory procedure by a pyrohydrolysis technique is established and applicable to the determination of fluoride in nuclear materials with ion selective electrode after separation from the uranium matrix. Beryllium in the Be-coating laboratory has been monthly monitored and its contamination stays well below the maximum permissible concentration. A preliminary survey on the possible recovery of NH4NO3 from the liquid waste of the uranium conversion process reveals that it is more practical to recover NH3 and NO3 independently rather than to treat the liquid waste directly to obtain in the form of NH4NO3. Several methods should be combined to solve the problem more efficiently. Finally, safeguards activities are summarized

  7. Studies on coordination chemistry and bioactivity of some nitrogen-sulfur donor ligands with some heavy metal ions

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    A bidentate NS ligand, hydraziniumdithiocarbazate (HzDTC), was prepared. The reaction of HzDTC with benzoin (HzDTCl) yielded a new Schiff base. Some complexes of cadmium(II), tin(II) and antimony(III) containing HzDTC and S-picolyldithiocarbazate (SPDTC) were prepared and characterized by a variety of physico-chemical techniques. The structure of the Schiff base, bis(methylphenyl)methylene (N-phenylmethylene-N'-phenylmethine)hydrazine, was solved by X-ray crystallography. The HzDTC and SPDTC behaved as uninegatively charged bidentate ligands. The antibacterial and anti-fungal properties of ligands and their metal complexes were evaluated against four pathogenic bacteria and fungi. HzDTC was very effective against all the microbes while the complexes of HzDTC were antibacterial. The complexes of SPDTC were effective against fungi. [Cd(HzDTC)Br. H2O], in particular, was moderately active against CEM-SS (human cell T-lymphoblastic leukemia) cells. (author)

    The occurrence of triterpene pentacyclic acids in plants is extensive, but little is known about their availability in commercial extracts. A simple GC-MS method for the simultaneous determination of betulinic, corosolic, maslinic, oleanolic and ursolic acids was developed and applied to 38 different commercial plant extracts sold as ingredients for dietary supplements. A suitable protocol was set up to perform routine control of a diverse array of samples with different botanical, chemical and physical characteristics. Remarkable quantities of corosolic acid were found in dried extracts from aerial parts of Lagerstroemia speciosa and Ortosiphon stamineus (14233 and 1132 mg/kg, respectively), while oleanolic acid was abundant in O. stamineus and Crataegus monogyna flowers (2774 and 2339 mg/kg); ursolic was identified in O. stamineus, C. monogyna, L. speciosa and Arctostaphylos uva-ursi leaves (7773, 4165, 2108 and 1034 mg/kg). Only L. speciosa was rich in maslinic acid (4958 mg/kg), while minor amounts of betulinic acid (257 and 80 mg/kg) were detected in L. speciosa and C. monogyna extracts. Lower quantities of triterpenic acids were identified in dried extracts of Harpagophyton procumbens root, propolis, Punica granatum root, Styrax benzoin, Vaccinium myrtillus fruits and Vitis vinifera seeds. Decoctions and fluid extracts lacked or contained very low amounts of triterpenic acids. Results are discussed in terms of quality and safety of these ingredients. PMID:23122121

    A fluorous porous polymer stationary phase is photo-patterned within a glass microfluidic chip to conduct CEC. During free radical-initiated polymerization, extraneous polymer forms and contributes to excessive microfluidic channel clogging. Nitrobenzene is explored as free radical quencher to limit clogging by minimizing extraneous polymer formation and a number of initiator to quencher ratios are explored with a 0.5:1 quencher (nitrobenzene): initiator (benzoin methyl ether) molar ratio shown to be optimal. The microchip patterned with a fluorous monolith was used to carry out the electrochromatographic analysis of a mixture containing fluorescent and fluorous labeling products. The fluorous monolithic column shows fluorous selectivity for compounds labeled with perfluoromethylene tags and a custom peptide is synthesized that possesses functional groups that can be both fluorescently and fluorously labeled. MALDI MS was used to identify the labeled fragments and microchip based electrochromatography was used to analyze the resulting labeling mixture. This is the first report to our knowledge that uses fluorous porous polymer monolith within a microchip to separate analytes using fluorous-fluorous interactions. PMID:24170603

    Precipitation of {sup 99}Mo by {alpha}-benzoin oxime ({alpha}-Bz) is a standard precipitation method for molybdenum due the high selectivity of this agent. Nowadays, statistical analysis tools have been employed in analytical systems to prove its efficiency and feasibility. IPEN has a project aiming the production of {sup 99}Mo by the fission of {sup 235}U route. The processing uses as the first step the precipitation of {sup 99}Mo with {alpha}-Bz. This precipitation step involves many key reaction parameters. The aim of this work is based on the development of the already known acidic route to produce {sup 99}Mo as well as the optimization of the reactional parameters applying statistical tools. In order to simulate {sup 99}Mo precipitation, the study was conducted in acidic media using HNO{sub 3}, {alpha}Bz as precipitant agent and NaOH /1%H{sub 2}O{sub 2} as dissolver solution. Then, a Mo carrier, KMnO{sub 4} solutions and {sup 99}Mo tracer were added to the reaction flask. The reactional parameters ({alpha}-Bz/Mo ratio, Mo carrier, reaction time and temperature, and cooling reaction time before filtration) were evaluated under a fractional factorial design of resolution V. The best values of each reactional parameter were determined by a response surface statistical planning. The precipitation and recovery yields of {sup 99}Mo were measured using HPGe detector. Statistical analysis from experimental data suggested that the reactional parameters {alpha}-Bz/Mo ratio, reaction time and temperature have a significant impact on {sup 99}Mo precipitation. Optimization statistical planning showed that higher {alpha}Bz/Mo ratios, room temperature, and lower reaction time lead to higher {sup 99}Mo yields. (author)

  12. CRP on “Developing Techniques for Small Scale Indigenous Molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) Production Using Low Enriched Uranium (LEU) Fission or Neutron Activation”. Final Report [Country report: Brazil

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Due to the increasing needs for nuclear medicine in Brazil and the world shortage of 99Mo observed since 2008, IPEN-CNEN/SP-Brazil decided to develop its skills for producing 99Mo through the route of 235U fission. This decision was based on: (i) the well-established laboratory for producing 99mTc generators already in operation in IPEN and responsible for the Brazilian market supply; (ii) the availability of LEU by the Brazilian Enrichment Laboratory; (iii) the established capacity to prepare targets of U-Al alloys; (iv) the availability of some human resources in uranium chemistry; (v) the possibility of operating the IEA-R1 for at least ten years more; and (vi) the recent ongoing project of the CNEN to construct a new research reactor. IAEA agreed to the participation of Brazil in the CRP dealing with the indigenous production of 99Mo in 2010. This paper will present an update of the project at IPEN, showing the efforts of the different groups towards the goal of producing 99Mo through the fission of LEU 235U targets employing the modified Cintichem process. It will present the results of the preliminary experiments dealing with the acid dissolution of metallic U targets; the separation of 99Mo from some fission-produced impurities, comprising the precipitation with α-benzoin oxime and purification in HZO and activated charcoal columns and the separation of 131I for use as primary radioisotope. It will also present the configuration of the new reactor project in Brazil and the calculations concerning the amount of the fission products generated in the 235U targets in the real conditions projected for this reactor. During this period Brazil participated in the meeting held by IAEA in Chile in 2010 with 5 researchers and one researcher went to a visit to ANL and Y-12 installations in the USA under the support of IAEA.

This lethal disease has caused severe mortality of redbay (Persea borbonia and swampbay (P. palustris trees in the southeastern USA, threatens avocado (P. americana production in Florida, and has potential to impact additional New World species. To date, all North American hosts of X. glabratus and suscepts of laurel wilt are members of the family Lauraceae.

In addition, volatile collections and gas chromatography-mass spectroscopy (GC-MS were conducted to quantify terpenoid emissions from test bolts, and electroantennography (EAG was performed to measure olfactory responses of X. glabratus to terpenoids identified by GC-MS. Significant differences were observed among treatments in both field and laboratory tests. Silkbay and camphor tree attracted the highest numbers of the beetle in the field, and lancewood and spicebush the lowest, whereas boring activity was greatest on silkbay, bay laurel, swampbay, and redbay, and lowest on lancewood, spicebush, and camphor tree. The Guatemalan cultivar of avocado was more attractive than those of the other races, but boring response among the three was equivalent. The results suggest that camphor tree may contain a chemical deterrent to boring, and that different cues are associated with host location and host acceptance.

Silkbay and camphor tree attracted the highest numbers of the beetle in the field, and lancewood and spicebush the lowest, whereas boring activity was greatest on silkbay, bay laurel, swampbay, and redbay, and lowest on lancewood, spicebush, and camphor tree. The Guatemalan cultivar of avocado was more attractive than those of the other races, but boring response among the three was equivalent. The results suggest that camphor tree may contain a chemical deterrent to boring, and that different cues are associated with host location and host acceptance. Emissions of α-cubebene, α-copaene, α-humulene, and calamenene were

    In this work, the first examples of group 4 metalloporphyrin 1,2-diolato complexes were synthesized through a number of strategies. In general, treatment of imido metalloporphyrin complexes, (TTP)M=NR, (M = Ti, Zr, Hf), with vicinal diols led to the formation of a series of diolato complexes. Alternatively, the chelating pinacolate complexes could be prepared by metathesis of (TTP)MCl{sub 2} (M = Ti, Hf) with disodium pinacolate. These complexes were found to undergo C-C cleavage reactions to produce organic carbonyl compounds. For titanium porphyrins, treatment of a titanium(II) alkyne adduct, (TTP)Ti({eta}{sup 2}-PhC{triple_bond}CPh), with aromatic aldehydes or aryl ketones resulted in reductive coupling of the carbonyl groups to produce the corresponding diolato complexes. Aliphatic aldehydes or ketones were not reactive towards (TTP)Ti({eta}{sup 2}-PhC{triple_bond}CPh). However, these carbonyl compounds could be incorporated into a diolato complex on reaction with a reactive precursor, (TTP)Ti[O(Ph){sub 2}C(Ph){sub 2}O] to provide unsymmetrical diolato complexes via cross coupling reactions. In addition, an enediolato complex (TTP)Ti(OCPhCPhO) was obtained from the reaction of (TTP)Ti({eta}{sup 2}-PhC{triple_bond}CPh) with benzoin. Titanium porphyrin diolato complexes were found to be intermediates in the (TTP)Ti=O-catalyzed cleavage reactions of vicinal diols, in which atmospheric oxygen was the oxidant. Furthermore, (TTP)Ti=O was capable of catalyzing the oxidation of benzyl alcohol and {alpha}-hydroxy ketones to benzaldehyde and {alpha}-diketones, respectively. Other high valent metalloporphyrin complexes also can catalyze the oxidative diol cleavage and the benzyl alcohol oxidation reactions with dioxygen. A comparison of Ti(IV) and Sn(IV) porphyrin chemistry was undertaken. While chelated diolato complexes were invariably obtained for titanium porphyrins on treatment with 1,2-diols, the reaction of vicinal diols with tin porphyrins gave a number of

    Various displacement models in the literature have been widely used for understanding the adsorption mechanisms of solutes in various chromatography systems. The models were used for describing the often-observed linear plots of the logarithms of the retention factor versus the logarithms of the polar modifier concentration CI(0). The slopes of such a plot was inferred to be equal to the number of the displaced modifier molecules upon adsorption of one solute molecule, and were generally found to be greater than 1. In this study, the retention factors of four structurally related chiral solutes, ethyl lactate (EL), methyl mandelate (MM), benzoin (B), and pantolactone (PL), were measured for the amylose tris[(S)-α-methylbenzylcarbamate] sorbent, or AS, as a function of the concentration of isopropanol (IPA) in n-hexane. With increasing IPA concentration CI(0), the slopes increase from less than 1, at a concentration range from 0.13 to 1.3M, to slightly more than 1 at higher concentrations. Such slopes cannot be explained by the conventional retention models. It was found previously for monovalent solutes that such slopes can only be explained when the aggregation of the mobile phase modifier, isopropyl alcohol, was accounted for. A new retention model is presented here, accounting for alcohol aggregation, multivalent solute adsorption, multivalent solute-alcohol complexation, alcohol adsorption, and solute intra hydrogen-bonding, which occur in these four solutes. The slope is found to be controlled by three key dimensionless groups, the fraction of the sorbent binding sites covered by IPA, the fraction of the solute molecules in complex form, and the fraction of the IPA molecules in aggregate form. The limiting slope at a very high IPA concentration is equal to the value of (x+y)/n, where x is the number of the solute-sorbent binding sites and y is the number of the alcohol molecules in the solute-alcohol complex, and n is the alcohol aggregation number. The model
