Kinetic rate laws arising from theoretical expectations for the oxidation of lipids initiated by water-soluble free radicals in compartmentalized systems under different experimental conditions are deduced. In particular, the predictions for the kinetic reaction orders in: (a) intra-particle oxidizable compound concentration (at fixed number of particles(More)
In a previous work [Chem. Phys. Lipids 2000 104, 49], we have derived the following rate law for the oxidation of lipids in compartmentalized systems: R(T)=(k(1)/k(t))(0.5) k(p) [In](0.5) c(0.5) [LH], where, R(T) is the total rate of oxidation, k(1) is the rate constant for the production of free radicals, k(t) and k(p) are the intra-particle rate constants(More)
The title reactions are subjected to a kinetic study in water, at 25.0 degrees C, and an ionic strength of 0.2 M (KCl). By following the reactions spectrophotometrically two consecutive reactions are observed: the first is formation of the corresponding thionocarbamates (1-(aryloxythiocarbonyl)pyridinium cations) and the second is their decomposition to the(More)
The reactions of secondary alicyclic amines with 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl methyl carbonate (TNPMC) and 2,4,6-trinitrophenyl acetate (TNPA) are subjected to a kinetic study in aqueous solution, 25.0 degrees C, ionic strength 0.2 (KCl). The reactions are studied by following spectrophotometrically (360 nm) the release of the 2,4,6-trinitrophenoxide anion. Under(More)
In a previous study we reported a relatively low incidence of hip fracture in our population compared to figures reported elsewhere and speculated that this could be related to differences in bone density. Accordingly, we measured bone density in 259 subjects at necropsy. In 172 males we found that bone density decreased from 0.88 g/cc at age 21-30 to 0.80(More)
The reactions of a series of secondary alicyclic (SA) amines with O-phenyl and O-ethyl O-(2,4-dinitrophenyl) thiocarbonates (1 and 2, respectively) and of a series of pyridines with the former substrate are subjected to a kinetic investigation in water, at 25.0 degrees C, ionic strength 0.2 M (KCl). Under amine excess over the substrate, all the reactions(More)
We measured total, HDL and LDL cholesterol and triglycerides in 183 postmenopausal women before and 4 weeks after hormone therapy. Ethinyl estradiol or conjugated estrogens alone or in association with medroxyprogesterone, norethyndrone or norgestrel were used in different dosages either continuously or sequentially. Total cholesterol decreased from 206 to(More)
