Are Nanosilica, Potassium Silicate and New Soluble Sources of Silicon Effective for Silicon Foliar Application to Soybean and Rice Plants?
Foliar application of silicon (Si) is an effective way of supplying this beneficial element to plants. The emergence of new potential liquid sources for foliar application requires studies to assess the effectiveness of ...
Healing process of dog dental pulp after pulpotomy and pulp covering with mineral trioxide aggregate or Portland cement.
Considering several reports about the similarity between the chemical compositions of the mineral trioxide aggregate (MTA) and Portland cement (PC), the subject of this investigation was to analyze the behavior of dog ...
Micellization of CTAB in the presence of silicate anions and the exchange between bromide and silicate at the micelle surface: A step to understand the formation of mesoporous molecular sieves at extremely low surfactant and silicate concentrations
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier ScienceSan DiegoEUA, 2006)
Biofortification of tomato with stabilized alkaline silicate and silicic acid, nanosilica, and potassium silicate via leaf increased ascorbic acid content and fruit firmness
Leaf spraying of silicon (Si) depending on the source and concentration can biofortify the tomato fruit by increasing the content of ascorbic acid and the firmness of the fruit. The objective of this study was to determine ...
Fire retardant impregnants for woods based on alkaline silicates
The aim of this paper was to determine the fire performance of wood panels (Araucaria angustifolia) impregnated in a pressure vessel with post-cured alkaline silicates (water glasses). Several commercial silicates based ...
Effect of silicate fertilization on soil and on palisade grass plants under grazing intensities
(Sociedade Brasileira de Zootecnia, 2011)
Application of calcium silicate (SiCa) as soil acidity corrective was evaluated in a Rhodic Hapludox soil with palisade grass conducted under pasture rotation system with different grazing intensities. Experimental design ...
Ab initio molecular dynamics description of proton transfer at water-tricalcium silicate interface
For the first time, an ab initio molecular dynamics simulation was performed to describe the C3S/water interface. The simulation shows that oxides with favorable environment are protonated at first, creating very stable ...
Organofunctionalized RUB-18 from the intercalated precursor cetyltrimethylammonium cation
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2010)
Effects of silicon fertigation on dry matter production and crude protein contents of a pasture
The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of application of two silicon sources via fertigation on nitrogen use efficiency and the production and crude protein contents of the forages BRS Zuri and BRS RB331 Ipyporã. ...
