Expressions which represent the concentrations of oxygen and carbon dioxide in blood in terms of the partial pressures, and include the Bohr and Haldane effects, have been developed. These expressions are suitable for rapid evaluation on digital computers, are easily invertible, and are readily differentiated to yield the partial derivatives of the(More)
Two general models for batch simultaneous enzymatic and microbial reaction (SEMR) processes are presented, the second derived from and simpler than the first and accounting for enzyme denaturation. Using the second model and parameter values from the literature, simulation was used to examine a range of enzyme addition rate strategies (in which the rate was(More)
Here we report a new, bench-top synthesis for iron/iron oxide core/shell nanoparticles via the thermal decomposition of Fe(η(5)-C(6)H(3)Me(4))(2). The iron/iron oxide core/shell nanoparticles are superparamagnetic at room temperature and show improved negative contrast in T(2)-weighted MR imaging compared to pure iron oxides nanoparticles, and have a(More)
In the title compound, [Pt{Ph2P(CH2)3PPh2}2]Cl2·5CHCl3, the Pt(II) cations, located on a centre of inversion, is coordinated by two chelating diphosphane ligands in a geometry which is close to square-planar. The chelate rings adopt a chair conformation. The Pt(II) cations are arranged in layers separated by Cl(-) anions as well as CHCl3 solvent mol-ecules.(More)
Color and volatile stimulus preferences of Drosophila repleta (Patterson) Diptera: Drosophilidae), a nuisance pest of swine and poultry facilities, were tested using sticky card and bottle traps. Attractions to red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, black, grey and a white-on-black contrast treatment were tested in the laboratory. Drosophila repleta(More)
