Parity-odd domains, corresponding to nontrivial topological solutions of the QCD vacuum, might be created during relativistic heavy-ion collisions. These domains are predicted to lead to charge separation of quarks along the system's orbital momentum axis. We investigate a three-particle azimuthal correlator which is a P even observable, but directly(More)
Measurements of the production of forward high-energy pi(0) mesons from transversely polarized proton collisions at sqrt[s]=200 GeV are reported. The cross section is generally consistent with next-to-leading order perturbative QCD calculations. The analyzing power is small at x(F) below about 0.3, and becomes positive and large at higher x(F), similar to(More)
Two-pion correlation functions in Au+Au collisions at square root of [s(NN)] = 130 GeV have been measured by the STAR (solenoidal tracker at RHIC) detector. The source size extracted by fitting the correlations grows with event multiplicity and decreases with transverse momentum. Anomalously large sizes or emission durations, which have been suggested as(More)
We report the first observations of the first harmonic (directed flow, v(1)) and the fourth harmonic (v(4)), in the azimuthal distribution of particles with respect to the reaction plane in Au+Au collisions at the BNL Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC). Both measurements were done taking advantage of the large elliptic flow (v(2)) generated at RHIC.(More)
We report a new STAR measurement of the longitudinal double-spin asymmetry A(LL) for inclusive jet production at midrapidity in polarized p + p collisions at a center-of-mass energy of sqrt[s]=200 GeV. The data, which cover jet transverse momenta 5<p(T)<30 GeV/c, are substantially more precise than previous measurements. They provide significant new(More)
The binding of Ca2+ to micelles of glycine and taurine bile acid conjugates was studied using a Ca2+-specific electrode. An investigation of the effect of buffer concentration, pH, added electrolyte and lecithin was also carried out. The observed results indicate that the binding of Ca2+ to bile salt micelles is dependent on both the number of hydroxyl(More)
By the mid-1990s, global human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infections among women are expected to equal those among men. This trend reflects economic, political, and cultural factors that limit women's ability to protect themselves from HIV transmission. Studies in developing countries have indicated that HIV-infected women (other than sex workers) do(More)
Judicious choice of the salt form of a drug can greatly affect the aqueous solubility and formulation of the compound. The objective of this work was to demonstrate the effect of various counteranions on the aqueous solubility of the antimalarial agent alpha-(2-piperidyl)-3, 6-bis(trifluoromethyl)-9-phenanthrenemethanol. Several organic salts of this drug(More)
The degradations of 13-cis-retinoic acid and all-trans-retinoic acid in an organic solvent were determined with an HPLC assay. The degradation curves at 70, 50 and 37 degrees C all showed autocatalytic characteristics for both isomers. For this kind of complex reaction, the usual method cannot be used to estimate the shelf-lives and half-lives at room(More)
The relative availability of the orally administered hydrophobic antimalarial alpha-(dibutylaminomethyl)-6,8-dichloro-2-(3',4'-dichlorophenyl)-4-quinolinemethanol (I) from two dosage forms was determined in beagle dogs. Compound I was soluble in oleic acid to the extent of 23.5% (w/w), and oleic acid was suitable for encapsulation in soft gelatin capsules.(More)
