In this paper, the basic governing equations for isotropic and homogeneous generalized thermoelastic half-space under hydrostatic initial stress are formulated in the context of the Green and Naghdi theory of types II and III. These governing equations are solved analytically to obtain the dimensional velocities in an xy-plane. It is shown that there exist(More)
INTRODUCTION Gossypol is an axially chiral natural polyphenol classically extracted from the Malavaceae family. Nevertheless, its extraction and isolation from a plant can be quite complicated and extremely time-consuming since gossypol is known to be sensitive to degradation under solvents, high temperature and light action. Moreover, its purification over(More)
An efficient cascade transformation toward indolizine-based molecules has been developed. This process leads to the rapid construction of two C-N bonds and one C-C bond without the need of any metal catalysis. The approach involves easily accessible chromone-based Michael acceptors and propargylamine derivatives as starting materials. This cascade(More)
The study of the mixture of BSA with polyacrylic acids at different masses versus pH allowed highlighting the existence of two regimes of weak and strong complexation. These complexes were studied in diluted regime concentration, by turbidimetry, dynamic light scattering (DLS), zeta-potential measurements and nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). We have(More)
[reaction: see text] Nucleophilic substitution reactions of racemic and chiral 5-acetoxy-, 5-ethoxy-, and 5-methoxypyrrolidin-2-ones by silicon-based nucleophiles were efficiently catalyzed by TIPSOTf. This process was found to be general and accommodates a broad range of substrate-nucleophile combinations.
The phytochemical investigation of a Tunisian plant Atriplex portulacoides (Chenopodiaceae) led to the isolation of two new compounds designated as portulasoid (2) and septanoecdysone (3) along with the known 20-hydroxyecdysone (20HE) (1). Their chemical structures were elucidated on the basis of extensive spectroscopic methods including ES-HRMS, 1D and(More)
