The Tiger Summit, to be hosted by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin in Russia in November 2010—the Chinese Year of the Tiger and the International Year of Biodiversity—promises to be the most significant meeting ever held to discuss the fate of a single non-human species. The Summit will culminate efforts by the Global Tiger Initiative (GTI), launched in 2008… (More)
In this work multiple linear regression (MLR) and artificial neural network (ANN) were used to predict the gradient retention times of diverse sets of organic compounds in four separate data sets. Descriptors which were used as inputs of these models are five linear free energy relationship (LFER) solute parameters including E, S, A, B and V. In the first… (More)

A database of system constants for 32 open-tubular columns at 100 degrees C is used to identify stationary phases for obtaining a wide selectivity space in comprehensive GC. Three parameters based on the Euclidean distance (D-parameter) or vectors (d-parameter and costheta) in hyperspace are used to establish the chemical similarity and retention… (More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the retention properties of four application-specific open-tubular columns (Rtx-CLPesticides, Rtx-OPPesticides, Rtx-Dioxin and Rtx-Dioxin2) at five equally spaced temperatures over the range 60-140 degrees C. Cluster analysis is used to compare the system constants to a database of forty open-tubular… (More)
The solvation parameter model is used to characterize the selectivity of DB-608 and DB-624 open-tubular columns at five equally spaced temperatures over the range 60 to 140 degrees C. The system constants for the DB-608 and DB-624 columns were used as selectivity parameters to search a database of open-tubular columns to identify columns with similar… (More)
Cholest-7-en-6-one, 14alpha-hydroxycholest-7-en-6-one, 2beta, 3beta, 5alpha-trihydroxycholest-7-en-6-one and ten other related compounds have been synthesized by efficient routes from cholesterol. The named compounds possess some of the characteristics of the insect moulting hormones, ecdysones.
