Slurry-phase Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and kinetic studies over supported cobalt carbonyl derived catalysts
This paper reports the preparation characterization, and performance of cobalt carbonyl cluster based catalysts for use in slurry-phase Fischer--Tropsch (FT) technology investigated. Using metalExpand
Effects of Gibberellic Acid on Growth and Development of Plants of Various Genera and Species
Growth responses of forty-nine kinds of plants were studied when gibberellic acid, a naturally occurring plant regulator, was applied to them in various ways, finding no significant differences in responsiveness between the different species of the genera studied or among the different varieties and hybrids.

Winter Hardiness in Guayule
Based on a limited study of four selections, plants of A-5o58 were most resistant to frost injury, and experimental field plantings can readily be protected from temperatures as low as 4⚬ F., and probably lower, by means of an adequate mulch. Expand
Effects of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid on the Ripening of Detached Fruit
Treated fruits attained a full yellow color and excellent flavor, even though they were subjected to drier air and lower temperature conditions than is usually maintained in their commercial ripening, while untreated fruits failed to ripen during this period. Expand
Starch Hydrolysis in Bean Leaves as Affected by Application of Growth- Regulating Substances
1. Lanolin emulsions containing various growth-regulating chemicals were sprayed on attached bean leaves and the plants were subsequently placed in darkness, together with controls. QuantitativeExpand
Movement of 2,4-Dichlorophenoxyacetic Acid Stimulus and Its Relation to the Translocation of Organic Food Materials in Plants
The stimulus resulting from treatment with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid was not readily translocated from leaves of bean plants whose sugar content was relatively low, such as those exposed to extended periods of darkness or to CO2-free air in light. Expand
Responses of Vegetative Parts of Plants Following Application of Extract of Pollen from Zea mays
Application of the extract of pollen of Zea mays in the form of a ring around the stems of bean plants resulted in marked internodal elongation, which was associated mainly with an increase in the length of the cells of the various tissues, rather than with an increased in the rate of cell division.

Polyethylene Glycols as Carriers for Growth-Regulating Substances
1. Addition of Carbowax compounds to aqueous solutions of 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid increased the effectiveness of the acid in bringing about growth responses and form changes in kidney beanExpand
