Yields of wheat, when grown on saline soil under dryland conditions were increased by treatments such as mulch, manure, high rates of nitrogen and phosphorus fertilizers in combination or alone and by Krilium. On the other hand, all treatments, with the exception of Krilium, had no effect on the salinity concentrations of the 0–6 inch soil layer. It was(More)
Synthesis, structure determination, and magnetic properties are reported for the metastable and crystal-chemically isotypic phases cobalt carbodiimide, CoNCN, and nickel carbodiimide, NiNCN, adopting the hexagonal system and space group P63/mmc (NiAs type) with interatomic distances of Co-N = 2.17 Angstrom and Ni-N = 2.12 Angstrom and an octahedral(More)
Iron man challenge: Iron carbodiimide, FeNCN, and its precursor iron (bis)monohydrocyanamide, Fe(NCNH)(2), have been synthesized and physically characterized. Both FeNCN and Fe(NCNH)(2) exhibit nitrogen-mediated antiferromagnetic superexchange interactions with reduced magnetic moments very similar, but not identical, to the correlated 3d oxides.
Synthesis, single-crystal structure determination, and magnetic properties are reported for manganese carbodiimide, MnNCN. The presumably unstable but inert phase adopts the trigonal system (R3m) with a = 3.3583(4) A, c = 14.347(2) A, V = 140.13(3) A3, and Z = 3. Divalent manganese is octahedrally coordinated by nitrogen atoms at 2.26 A, and the NCN(2-)(More)
Pure EuC(2), free of EuO impurities, was obtained by the reaction of elemental europium with graphite at 1673 K. By means of synchrotron powder diffraction experiments, the structural behavior was investigated in the temperature range from 10 to 1073 K. In contrast to former results, EuC(2) crystallizes in the ThC(2) type structure (C2/c, Z = 4) at room(More)
Single crystals of the complex boride series Sc(2)FeRu(5-n)Rh(n)B(2) (n=1, 3, 4) were synthesized by arc-melting the elements in water-cooled copper crucibles under argon atmospheres and were chemically characterized by single-crystal XRD and EDX analyses. The new compounds are isotypic and crystallize in the tetragonal space group P4/mbm with Z=2, adopting(More)
Dimyristoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DC(14:0)PE) and the dioleoyl analogue (DC(18:1cis)PE) were mixed with alpha-biotinylamido-omega-N-succinimidoxycarbonyl-poly(ethylene glycol) (NHS-PEG-biotin) and quantitatively converted to alpha-biotinylamido-omega-(dimyristoylphosphatidylethanolamino-carbonyl)polyethylene glycol (DC(14:0)PE-PEG-biotin) and the(More)
The synthesis and characterization of ferrofluid based MR contrast agents, which offer R2* versatility beyond that of ferucarbotran, is described. Ferrofluids were formed after stabilizing magnetite cores with dodecanoic acid (a), oleic acid (b), dodecylamine (c), citric acid (d) or tartaric acid (e). Core sizes were deduced from TEM micrographs. Magnetic(More)
