The dosimetric stability, linearity, dose rate dependence, and flatness of both photon and electron beams have been evaluated for a racetrack microtron at low monitor unit settings. For photons, the variation in dosimetric output about the mean is < 0.4% at 100 monitor units (MU), < 1% at 10 MU, and < 4% at 2 MU. The output dependence on the dose rate(More)
Solid-state (13)C NMR is believed to be a valuable tool for studying adsorption and speciation of xanthates on sulfide mineral surfaces, but to do that, model compounds of possible xanthate species need to be investigated. (13)C NMR chemical shift tensors for molecular fragments of potassium iso-propylxanthate and six of its decomposition products have been(More)
The sorption of Inositol hexaphosphate (IP6) onto gibbsite was investigated using a combination of adsorption experiments, (31)P solid-state MAS NMR spectroscopy, and surface complexation modeling. Adsorption experiments conducted at four temperatures showed that IP6 sorption decreased with increasing pH. At pH 6, IP6 sorption increased with increasing(More)
TRACER GAS techniques can be used for many different types of lung function tests. Thus the wash-in and washout of insoluble gases have been used for the determination of residual volume and functional residual capacity (DAVY, 1800; WILLMAN and BEi-INKE, 1938). Furthermore, measurement of the uptake of soluble tracer gas by the lungs forms the basis for(More)
HYPOTHESIS Oxides, hydrous oxides and hydroxides of aluminium and iron are important in determining the availability of trace and heavy metals in soil systems. The presence of complexing anions is also known to affect the binding of these metals in soils. Since organophosphates, such as inositol hexaphosphate (IP6), are present in most soil systems they are(More)
The molecular, crystal, and electronic structures as well as spectroscopic properties of a mononuclear heteroleptic lanthanum(iii) complex with diethyldithiocarbamate and 1,10-phenanthroline ligands (3 : 1) were studied by solid-state (13)C and (15)N cross-polarisation (CP) magic-angle-spinning (MAS) NMR, X-ray diffraction (XRD), and first principles(More)
The use of multiple high energy electron beams has been limited in the treatment of deep seated tumors. This is principally because of the rapid increase in the physical electron beam penumbra as a result of the rise in large angle scattering with depth in the patient. This decreases the transverse dose gradient between the target volume and sensitive dose(More)
Different potassium salts and zinc(II) and nickel(II) O,O'-dialkyldithiophosphate complexes were studied by solid-state 31P CP/MAS and static NMR and ab initio quantum mechanical calculations. Spectra were obtained at different spinning frequencies, and the intensities of the spinning sidebands were used to estimate the chemical shift anisotropy parameters.(More)
31P CP/MAS NMR spectroscopy was used to study the adsorption of six different O,O'-dialkyldithiophosphate ions on the surface of synthetic galena (PbS). The 31P CP/MAS NMR spectra of the surface lead(II) dithiophosphates were compared with the 31P CP/MAS NMR spectra of polycrystalline lead(II) dithiophosphate complexes of the same ligands. Surface(More)
A number of lead(II) O,O'-dialkyldithiophosphate complexes were studied by (13)C, (31)P, and (207)Pb MAS NMR. Simulations of (31)P chemical shift anisotropy using spinning sideband analysis reveal a linear relationship between the SPS bond angle and the principal values delta(22) and delta(33) of the (31)P chemical shift tensor. The (31)P CSA data were used(More)
