In a series of publications Estrada (Estrada, E. J. Chem. Inf. Comput. Sci. 1996, 36, 844-849; 1997 37, 320-328; 1998, 38, 23-27) employed spectral moments of line graphs in QSPR and QSAR relationship studies of various classes of compounds. A recent paper (Marković, S.; Gutman, I. J. Chem. Inf Comput. Sci. 1999, 39, 289-293) reported that in QSPR and QSAR(More)
BACKGROUND Reported incidences of prostate cancer and masculinization of animals indicate a release of compounds with androgenic properties into the environment. Large numbers of environmental pollutants have been screened to identify such compounds; however, not until recently was 1,2-dibromo-4-(1,2-dibromoethyl)cyclohexane (TBECH) identified as the first(More)
The relationship between the rate of supercritical fluid extraction of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) from coal-tar pitch and some topological invariants are examined. The aim is to explain the appearance of a minimum value on the activation energy/molar mass curve of the PAHs. Rate constants are approximated using spectral moment expansion. It is(More)
