The identification of four further major constituents of the pedal gland exudate of the bontebok, Damaliscus dorcas dorcas, viz. alpha-terpineol, 2-n-heptylpyridine, m-cresol and (A)-6-dodecen-4-olide and the investigation of the stereochemistry of the double bond in (Z)-6-dodecen-4-olide by means of iterative computer analysis are described. An improved(More)
The present study treats the calculation of the continuous phase of a multiphase flow, i.e. the numerical solution of the equations for a turbulent incompressible flow. An existing SIMPLE based Single–Grid algorithm is improved applying the Multi–Grid Method. Numerical experiments for two test cases with up to 3 174 400 finite volumes show the features of(More)
A fully developed square channel flow with a Reynolds number of Re = 4410 (based on bulk velocity and duct width) has been calculated using Large Eddy Simulation (LES) technique with the Smagorin-sky eddy viscosity model. Results for the Prandtl's secondary motion which is turbulence-driven show good qualitative picture and are in good quantitative(More)
The parallelization of the solution algorithm for the set of continuity, Navier–Stokes and turbulence model equations is carried out by parallelization in space, that means by application of the domain decomposition or grid partitioning method. Using a block-structured grid the flow domain is partitioned in a number of subdomains. Usually the number of grid(More)
2-Methyl-4-nitro-1-(4-nitrophenyl)imidazole (nitrefazole) is a drug which causes a strong and long lasting inhibition of aldehyde dehydrogenase, an enzyme involved in the metabolism of alcohol. The synthesis of this compound as well as that of the isomeric 5-nitro analogue are described. It can be shown by means of detailed 1H- and 13C-NMR studies of both(More)
Two new cyclic analogues of physalaemin were designed on the basis of the conformation found in DMSO solution. Glp-Ala-cyclo(-Asp-Pro-Asn-Lys-)-Phe-Tyr-Gly-Leu-Met-NH2 (1) was synthesized by cyclization of physalaemin. In 2 the Asp residue was replaced by Glu. The linear analogue of 2 was synthesized by the solid phase method and subsequently cyclized.(More)
Selective catalytic reduction based on urea water solution as ammonia precursor is a promising method for the NOx abatement form exhaust gasses of mobile diesel engine units. It consists of injecting the urea-water solution in the hot flue gas stream and reaction of its products with the NOx over the catalyst surface. During this process flue gas enthalpy(More)
