A further exploration of a nucleophilicity index based on the gas-phase ionization potentials
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2008)
An empirical nucleophilicity index based on the gas-phase ionization potentials has been recently shown to be useful categorizing and settling the nucleophilicity power of a series of captodative ethylenes reacting in ...
Water quality index as a simple indicator of aquaculture effects on aquatic bodies
(Elsevier B.V., 2008-09-01)
This paper proposes a water quality index (WQI) to subsidize management actions in the Medio Paranapanema Watershed in São Paulo State, Brazil, as a simple pollution indicator for aquaculture activity. Water quality of the ...
Magneto-optical rotation of heavy-metal oxide glasses
Magneto-optical rotation was measured at room temperature for glasses containing Bi2O3-CdO-GeO2 (BCG), and Bi2O3-PbO-GeO2-B2O3 (BPGP). A pulsed magnetic field between 50 and 80 KG was used to measure Faraday rotation at ...
Glycaemic index effects on fuel partitioning in humans
(BLACKWELL PUBLISHING, 2006-05)
The purpose of this review was to examine the role of glycaemic index in fuel partitioning and body composition with emphasis on fat oxidation/storage in humans. This relationship is based on the hypothesis postulating ...
Refractive index changes in photochromic SbPO4-WO3 glass by exposure to band-gap radiation
(Elsevier B.V., 2010-10-01)
We report photoinduced photo-darkening in SbPO4-WO3 glass by exposure to 532 nm light with a power density of 143 mW/cm(2). The time of exposure was varied between 0 and 256 min following which visible photo-darkening, ...
