The Population Health Epidemiology Unit of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) in Tasmania uses hospitalizations, deaths, cancer incidence and notifiable diseases data to conduct monitoring and surveillance of the health of the Tasmanian population. The data is coded according to local government area (LGA). Traditionally commercial mapping(More)
Conjugates of a triplet sensitiser (a 4,4'-dialkoxybenzophenone) with 1-acetyl-7-nitroindolines show up to 20-fold enhancement for photorelease of acetate (relative to the same indolines lacking the attached sensitiser) upon irradiation at 300 nm in neutral aqueous solution. The sensitised photolysis can be carried out in the presence of dissolved oxygen(More)
The extracellular pH (pi I,.) in many solid tumors is often lower than in normal tissues. Cells may survive conditions of acid pi 1, because antiports in their membrane exchange Na* for 11+,or 11CX)., for Cl~, and thus regulate the intracellular pH (pH,). We have therefore assessed the effects of drugs which interfere with regulation of pi I; on survival of(More)
Two cottonseed oil biodiesel samples (cottonseed oil methyl esters, COME) produced in Clemson lab, together with other two commercial cottonseed oil biodiesels were evaluated on their engine performance with the No. 2 diesel fuel as a reference. The results revealed that emission of CO, CO 2 and NO x from cottonseed oil biodiesels was lower than that of the(More)
The excited state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) reactions from a phenol (naphthol) to a carbon atom in the adjacent aromatic ring of 2-phenylphenol (1) and 2-phenyl-1-naphthol (4) are prototypical examples of intramolecular proton transfer not mediated by solvent molecules. Femtosecond time-resolved transient absorption (fs-TA) studies are(More)
The ESIPT of three 2,5-dihydroxyphenyl-substituted arenes 9-11 was studied in various solvent systems, to investigate the direction of the proton transfer from the phenol to the respective carbons of naphthyl, phenanthrenyl and anthryl aromatic rings. In neat CH3CN, 9-11 undergo direct ESIPT from the phenolic OH to the ipso-position of the corresponding(More)
In aqueous media, photochemical excitation to S(1) of 3-phenylphenols 4-8 leads to deprotonation of the phenol OH, coupled with protonation of the benzyl alcohol and overall dehydration that delivers zwitterions 17-21. The zwitterions react with nucleophiles (CH(3)OH, CF(3)CH(2)OH and ethanolamine) converting them in high quantum yields to the corresponding(More)
In aqueous media, photochemical excitation (S(1)) of hydroxyadamantyl, diphenylhydroxymethyl, and hydroxypropyl derivatives of 4-phenylphenol 5-9 leads to solvent-assisted deprotonation of the phenol OH, and protonation of the benzyl alcohol coupled with dehydration, that delivers quinone methides (QMs) 14-18. The QMs react with CH(3)OH converting them in(More)
