Heakal, E. - T. F., and K. A. Awad, "Electrochemical Corrosion and Passivation Behavior of Titanium and Its Ti-6Al-4V Alloy in Low and Highly Concentrated HBr Solutions", Int. J. Electrochem. Sci., 2011. Abstract

Passivation and dissolution behavior of Ti and Ti-6Al-4V alloy was investigated in HBr solutions over a wide concentration range from 0.01 M to 8.0 M using open-circuit potential, electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and potentiodynamic polarization measurements. In the low and high concentration domains, the open-circuit potential for the metal and its alloy was found to increase positively with time due to oxide film thickening on the metal surface. However, there is a certain critical HBr concentration at which the thickening rate of the oxide film on Ti metal has a maximum value. The results were confirmed by EIS measurements at open-circuit potential where a constant phase element model with its complex transfer function were used to analyze the obtained impedance responses. Polarization scans showed that the corrosion current density (icorr) for titanium decreases slightly with increasing HBr concentration up to the threshold value before it starts to increase appreciably. On the other hand, for Ti-6Al-4V alloy the value of icorr increases gradually with HBr concentration over the whole range, and the alloy dissolves actively due to its poor passivating ability. Interestingly, for the two materials both icorr and the critical current density of passivation (icrit) decrease with raising temperature, indicating a decrease in the corrosion susceptibility of the passivating oxide film as a result of the decrease in the extent of Br- anion adsorption at higher temperatures. The apparent activation energy for the thickening process of the passive film was calculated from the increase in the spontaneous growth rate (?1) of its inner layer with temperature. The results in general confirmed that Ti metal has a stronger propensity to form passive film in HBr solutions better than its Ti-6Al-4V alloy.

Morphine (MO) is frequently used to relieve severe pain for patients, especially for those who undergo a surgical procedure. However, when overdosed or abused, MO is toxic and can cause disruption in the central nervous system. Therefore, to prevent overdose-induced toxication, it is necessary to sensitively determine the concentrations of MO in patient's blood or urine. An easy-to-use approach for directly electrodepositing gold nanoparticles onto carbon paste electrode (CPE) to construct gold nanoparticles modified carbon paste electrode (GNMCPE) is performed. The electrochemistry of MO is investigated by cyclic voltammetry

Hassan, H. B., and A. Z. Hamid, "Electrodeposited Ni-Cr2O3 Nanocomposite Anodes for Ethanol Electrooxidation", International Journal of Hydrogen Energy, 2011. Abstract

Nanocomposite coatings of Ni-Cr2O3 supported on carbon electrodes have been prepared by electrodeposition technique from nickel Watts bath in presence of Cr2O3 nanoparticles. Their electrochemical catalytic activities have been evaluated towards electrooxidation of ethanol in 1.0 M NaOH solution by using cyclic voltammetry, chronoamperometry and Tafel plots. The performance of the prepared anodes towards electrooxidation of ethanol as a function of co-deposited Cr2O3 content was studied. The catalytic activity of fabricated electrodes increases with increasing the volume fraction percent (Vf%) of Cr2O3 in the deposited film up to 7Vf%. The Ni-Cr2O3/C (7Vf%) electrode displayed significantly enhanced catalytic activity and stability towards electrooxidation of ethanol compared with Ni/C electrode. The kinetic parameters of Ni(OH)2/NiOOH and ethanol oxidation at Ni/C and Ni-Cr2O3/C electrodes have been evaluated.

Mohamed, B. F., A. M. Gouda, and L. Z. Ismail, "Electron Dynamics in Presence of Static Helical Magnet Inside Circular Waveguide", IEEE transactions on plasma science, 2011. Abstract

The dynamics of an electron in the fields associated with a TE electromagnetic wave propagating inside a circular waveguide is analytically studied. The motion of this electron along the axis of the waveguide is investigated in the existence of a helical magnet (in which the field is perpendicular to the axis of the waveguide and rotating as a function of position along the magnet). It is shown that it can be accelerated due to its interaction with polarized fields of microwave radiation propagating along the waveguide. The fields for the lowest order TE11 modes and the deflection angle of electron trajectory, due to these fields, are obtained. Also, an expression of the acceleration gradient of the electron and its energy gain are evaluated for different intensities and frequencies of the microwave.

Mostafa, H., M. F. Shibl, R. H. Hilal, L. I. Ali, and S. A. Halim, "Electronic Absorption Spectra of Some Triazolopyrimidine Derivatives", International Journal of Spectroscopy, 2011. Abstract

The electronic absorption spectra of triazolo pyrimidine and some of its derivatives were measured in polar as well as nonpolar solvents. Assignment of the observed transitions is facilitated via molecular orbital calculations. Charge density distributions, dipole moments, and the extent of delocalization of the MOS were used to interpret the observed solvent effects. The observed transitions are assigned as charge transfer (CT), localized, and delocalized according to the contribution of the various configurations in the CI-states. The correspondence between the calculated and experimental transition energies is satisfactory.

Riyadh, S. M., "Enaminones as Building Blocks for the Synthesis of Substituted Pyrazoles with Antitumor and Antimicrobial Activities", Molecules, 2011. Abstract

Novel N-arylpyrazole-containing enaminones 2a,b were synthesized as key intermediates. Reactions of 2a,b with active methylene compounds in acetic acid in the presence of ammonium acetate afforded substituted pyridine derivatives 5a-d. Enaminones 2a,b also reacted with aliphatic amines such as hydrazine hydrate and hydroxylamine hydrochloride to give bipyrazoles 8a,b and pyrazolylisoxazoles 9a,b, respectively. On the other hand, treatment of 2a,b with a heterocyclic amine and its diazonium salt yielded the respective [1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-a] pyrimidines 12a,b and pyrazolylcarbonyl[1,2,4]triazolo[3,4-c] [1,2,4] triazines 14a,b. Moreover, 2-thioxo-2,3-dihydro-1H-pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidin-4-one (17) was prepared via reaction of enaminone 2a with aminothiouracil (15). Cyclocondensation of 17 with the appropriate hydrazonoyl chlorides 18a-c gave the corresponding pyrido[2,3-d][1,2,4]triazolo[4,3-a]pyrimidin-5-ones 21a-c. The cytotoxic effects of compounds 2b, 14a and 17 against human breast cell line (MCF-7) and liver carcinoma cell line (HEPG2) were screened and in both lines they showed inhibition effects comparable to those of 5-fluorouracil, used as a standard. The antimicrobial activity of some products chosen as representative examples was also evaluated.

Chitin is the second most abundant carbohydrate polymer in nature next to cellulose. The main source of chitin is crustacean shells. Chitosan, derived from chitin by alkaline deacetylation, characteristically plays an important role in applications. Several parameters determine the chitosan specifications, namely, chitosan sources, incubation time, pretreatment conditions, temperature and acid and alkaline treatment. Chitosan extraction has been achieved by microwave heating and compared with that of conducting the deacetylation in an autoclave. High molecular weight chitosan (as determined by viscosity measurements of chitosan in dilute acetic acid solution), white color

Geweely, N. S., and S. A. Ouf, "Enhancement of Fungal Degradation of Starch Based Plastic Polymer by Laser-Induced Plasma", African Journal of Microbiology Research, 2011. Abstract

Fourteen fungal species (Alternariaalternata, Aspergillus-candidus, Aspergillusflavus, Aspergillusniger, Aspergillus-ochrochus, Botrytis cinerea, Chaetomiumglobosum, Fusar-iummoniliforme, Fusariumoxysporum, Fusariumsolani, Penicilliumchrysogenum, Penicilliumfuniculosm, Penicill-iumitalicum and Phanerochaetechrysosporium) belonging to Ascomycete, Basidiomycete and Deuteromycete groups were isolated from composted soil in Egypt. The ability of laser induced plasma as a new technique to enhance fungal degradation efficiency of starch based plastic polymer was tested. The maximum significant plastic degradation activities for all isolated fungal species were showed after the lowest exposure time (5 min) to laser induced plasma. The highest efficient fungal degraded starch based plastic polymer was A. niger, where the initial appearance of clear zone was recorded only after two days accompanied with the highest significant amylotic activities. The evaluation of changes in starch based plastic polymer degraded by A. niger compared with uninoculated and non plasma treated A. niger degraded starch based plastic polymer was observed by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The maximum degradation efficiency accompanied with the highest loss of tensile strength (90 and 80.7%, respectively) was observed in the plasma treated A. niger degrading starch polymer. Four low molecular weight sugars were detected by HPLC in plasmaand non plasma treated A. niger degrading plastic polymer.
