Hanaa A. El- Boraey, Ashraf A. El-shennawy, Ahmed M. Masoud, Hady S.Gado4 and Ahmed A.Bekair

  • Abstract

    Gravity separation technique has been adopted to upgrade the Egyptian low-grade phosphate ore (22.71%) from East Siba'eya area as an alternative method to the existing calcination method, which is not friendly environment and has several disadvantages and low reactivated final product. Shaking table is a gravity separation device was used for separating phosphate ore with respect to the factors influencing effective mineral separation include particle size, density and shape, riffle design, deck shape and slope, water flow, feed rate shaking motion and speed. Prior to gravity separation experiments, the feed phosphate ore was prepared by washing and desliming to remove fine clay from ores. The phosphate concentrate obtained under the optimum conditions (particle size was less than 150 mesh (100 μm), the optimal deck slope of shaking table was 10°, the optimal feed water flow rate was 8 liters per minute and the dressing water flow rate was 10 liters per minute. The results show promise for the produced grades of 29%–33% P2O5 with 68.51% recovery.

Interaction of synthesized compounds with bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated using fluorescence, absorption spectroscopy and non-radiative energy transfer techniques. The result shows that complexes cause the fluorescence quenching of BSA through a static quenching process. The binding constant (Kb) for the formation of a complex between compounds and BSA at 298 K are found to be in the range 1.03-2.61×105 mol-1L.

Thermodynamic Behaviors of Hypersensitive Transition Observed In Some Praseodymium Doped Systems with Various Amide Group Containing Ligands

Suresh Purohit

  • Abstract

    In the present research paper we have studied the thermodynamic behaviors of hypersensitive transition observed in some praseodymium doped system with alcoholic saturated solutions of amide group containing ligands. For this purpose we have choose three ligands i.e., Paracetamol, Indomethacin and Lidocaine. These ligands are drugs in nature and contain amide group. It has been observed that amide group containing ligands play very important role in biological chemistry, since proteins made up of amino acids which contain amide group in their structure. Study is based on doped crystal phenomenon. In this research paper we have choose thermodynamic efficiency (TET) and work function (A) of hypersensitive transition. Both of these parameters are very important to explain the stability of a complex. Uses of computational chemistry have been explored in order to develop better and easier methods of calculations.

Hassan El attari, Salim Mengouch and Khalil Chefira

  • Abstract

    The purpose of this paper is to study the inhibition of the corrosion of mild steel C38 in 1M HCl solution by Acetylpropionyl (ACTP) has been investigated by using weight loss, potentiodynamic polarization, and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy measurements. Results obtained revealed that the inhibition efficiency increased with the increase in concentration of ACTP but decreased with the increase in temperature. Inhibition efficiencies obtained ranged between 47, 67 to 87, 20 % in the concentration range of 1. 10-3 to 5. 10-3M/L. It appears that this compound inhibits mild steel corrosion by affecting both cathodic and anodic reactions. Electrochemical impedance studies show that charge transfer resistance increases with concentration of inhibitor and that it controls the corrosion process. El-Awady adsorption isotherm was found to fit well with the experimental data. Values of free energy of adsorption indicates that the adsorption of ACTP on the mild steel surface involves the physical adsorption process. Both thermodynamic and activation functions of dissolution and adsorption processes were calculated and discussed. Quantum chemical parameters were also studied and determined.

Zehra Ashraf, Somia Gul and Faazia Qaazi

  • Abstract

    An easy, precise, sensitive, reproducible, cost-effective spectroscopic method was developed and validated for the estimation of Clarithromycin. This method obeys Beer’s Law in concentration ranges of 0.1-0.8 mg.mL−1 for Clarithromycin. This method was validated for parameters including linearity, accuracy, precision and ruggedness as per ICH guidelines. The λ max of Clarithromycin was 205 nm in methanol. The drug follows linearity in the concentration range 0.1-0.8 mg.mL−1 with a correlation coefficient value of 0.995. The accuracy of this method was tested by recovery method implemented at three different levels, i.e., 120%, 100%, and 80%. Precision of method was studied as an intra-day; inter-day variations & repeatability. The %RSD value is less than 2% (< 2) which indicates that the method is precise. Ruggedness of method was studied with the aid of two different analysts. This developed and validated method can be adopted/ recommended for the routine quality control and quantitative analysis of Clarithromycin.

Computational Calculations of Chitosan Fragments as Corrosion Inhibitors of Metals

Ghassab M. Al-Mazaideh, Khaleel A. Abu-Sbeih , Salim M. Khalil

  • Abstract

    DFT was used to calculate the anticorrosion activity of several chitosan fragments on Fe, Al and Cu. The global quantum parameters and Gibbs function of adsorption ΔGads of inhibitors on metals have been calculated. The results showed spontaneous physical and nonspontaneous chemical adsorption of the inhibitors on the metals. The inhibitor efficiency was found to be in the order pentamer > tetramer > octamer > hexamer > trimer > dimer > heptamer > monomer. The calculated fraction of transferred electrons (ΔN), global electrophilicity index (ω) and dipole moment (μ) for the adsorption of inhibitors on the surface of the metals (Fe, Al and Cu) in the gas phase showed that the pentamer has the highest anticorrosion inhibition of all fragments. The order of the inhibition efficiency on the metal’s surface is in the order: Cu > Fe > Al. As a result, the pentamer is the best inhibitor for Cu surface. This agrees with previously published experimental results.
