In the present investigation the photolysis of riboflavin (RF) in the presence of citrate species at pH 4.0-7.0 has been studied. A specific multicomponent spectrophotometric method has been used to assay RF in the presence of photoproducts during the reactions. The overall first-order rate constants (k obs ) for the photolysis of RF range from 0.42 to(More)
Particulate fractions of Thiobacillus denitrificans catalyse the phosphorylation of ADP to ATP during the oxidation of various inorganic sulphur compounds or NADH via an electron transport chain. On the other hand, a “soluble” cell-free fraction synthesized ATP from APS and inorganic phosphate. The production of ATP was verified either by the firefly(More)
Light and temperature have considerable effect on the degradation of piroxicam in aqueous solutions. The pH and acetate buffer ions also affect the degradation process. The apparent first-order rate constants for the photochemical and thermal degradation of piroxicam have been determined as 2.04-10.01 and 0.86-3.06×10(-3) min(-1), respectively. The(More)
A survey was conducted to ascertain the variations practiced in powder/liquid (P/L) ratio of Glass Ionomer Cement (GIC) used as restorative and luting material in dental clinics of Karachi. It has been observed that in the use of GIC brands, 33% (Fuji 2) and 36% (Gold Label 2) of the dentists, did not follow the recommended P/L ratios for restorative(More)
The polymerization of 1-3 M 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) initiated by riboflavin/triethanolamine system has been studied in the pH range 6.0-9.0. An approximate measure of the kinetics of the reaction during the initial stages (~5% HEMA conversion) has been made to avoid the effect of any variations in the volume of the medium. The concentration of(More)
