Synthesis of Monodisperse Magnetite: The Effect of Temperature, Sodium Hydroxide and Citric Acid Concentrations on the Size of Nanoparticles

The effect of temperature, sodium hydroxide and citric acid concentrations on the size of magnetic magnetite nanoparticles was studied. Optimal conditions for synthesis of magnetite stabilized by citric acid with narrow size distribution were found. The average size of the nanoparticles determined by dynamic light scattering and transmission electron microscopy 12 ± 3 and 6 ± 2 nm, respectively was established. The chemical composition and structure of magnetite nanoparticles was confirmed by X-ray diffraction method.

Synthesis and Luminescence Studies of Terbium Complex with 2,6-dibenzylidenecyclohexanone

Novel complex of terbium (III) with aromatic monoketone – 2,6-dibenzylidenecyclohexanone – has been synthesized. Its uncharacteristic luminescent properties have been studied using quantum chemical calculations and lumiscent spectroscopy.


Методом атомно-абсорбционной спектрометрии (ААС) определено содержание подвижных форм меди, никеля и цинка и валовое содержание ртути и мышьяка в образцах почв, отобранных в жилой зоне г. Самары, и меди в вентвыбросах. Для почв оценен вклад стадии пробоподготовки в общую погрешность аналитического определения. Для обеспечения правильности определения содержания меди в вентвыбросах рассчитан поправочный коэффициент, учитывающий наличие систематической погрешности.

Determination of the Contents of Arsenic, Mercury, Copper, Nickel and Zinc in the Soil and Ventilating Emissions by Method of Atomic Absorption Spectrometry (AAS)

The method of atomic absorbing spectrometry (AAS) determined the content of mobile forms of copper, nickel and zinc, and total content of mercury and arsenic in the soil samples selected in a residential zone Samara, and copper in the ventilating emissions. For soils the sample preparation stage contribution to the general error of analytical definition is estimated. For ensuring correctness definition of the content of copper in the ventilating emissions the correction coefficient cons idering existence of a systematic mistake is calculated.

Mass Fraction Evaluation of the Basic Substance in Dialkyl Methylphosphonate Samples by Potentiometric Titration

A technique for the mass fraction evaluation of the basic substance in dialkyl methylphosphonate samples by automatic potentiometric titration is presented. A comparison was made with a certified technique of visual titration. Several advantages of our method are shown: the ability to automate analysis, a reduced sample weight, a constant and precise volume of a titrant drop, a reduced detection time, avoiding the use of chemical indicators, an improved precision of analysis.

Fragmentation Canals of Molecular Ions of GC-MS-Registered Components of Media of Shiitake Basidiomycete Submerged Cultivation in the Presence of Diacetophenonylselenide. Isomerization of Dihydrofurans and Their Cation Radicals

The molecular ions fragmentation canals of substances registered by means of the GC-MS method in the media of Lentinula edodes (shiitake) basidiomycete submerged cultivation in the presence of diacetophenonylselenide have been substantiated. At the B3LYP/6-311++G(3df,3pd) and UB3LYP/6-311++G(3df,3pd) level, involving the NBO analysis and the R. F. W. Bader’s «Atoms in Molecules» quantum theory (QTAIM), isomeric transformations of dihydrofurans have been considered.

Modeling of Adiabatic Potential Parameters for Monosubstituted Benzenes, Pyridines, Pyrones and Thiopyrones

By means of the Density Functional Theory DFT (B3LYP) method, quantum chemical computations of fundamental vibrations spectra of monosubstituted benzenes, pyridines, pyrones and thiopyrones have been carried out. The possibility of the aforesaid method application for the studied series of compounds vibrational spectra prediction have been substantiated.

Effect of Temperature, Isotopic Composition of Water and Ethanol on the Tautomeric Equilibrium of Sulphonated Phenylazonaphtholes

The effect of temperature, isotopic composition of water and ethanol on the tautomeric equilibrium
of two phenylazonaphtholes that differ by sulphonic group in benzene ring was investigated
spectrophotometrically. It was established that enhancement of water structure under decrease of
temperature or change of common water to heavy one shifts the azoquinonhydrazone tautomeric
equilibrium to more polar hydrazone tautomer. The destruction of water structure and decrease of
