Reboxetine (RBX) electrochemical redox behavior at hanging mercury drop (HMDE) and glassy carbon electrodes (GCE) was studied in various pH Britton-Robinson universal buffers using cyclic voltammetry and square-wave voltammetry. RBX was reduced at the HMDE and oxidized at the GCE with reversible adsorption controlled and irreversible diffusion controlled processes respectively. The anodic peak is due to the amine and the cathodic peak may correspond to oxygen protonation. An oxidation reaction mechanism is proposed. The linear relation between peak currents and RBX concentration allowed simple, sensitive, precise and inexpensive voltammetric procedures to be developed. The limit of detection was 0.04 A mu M RBX. The procedures were successfully applied to human urine and RBX tablet assay. Therapeutic RBX concentrations in human serum were not detected due to strong drug-protein binding. Using bovine serum albumin, the methods were used to investigate the effect of serum protein binding on RBX determination.


Thermal catalytic hydrosilylation of conjugated dienes with triethylsilane in the presence of tricarbonyl(o-xylene)metal (metal = Cr, Mo, W) complexes
Kayran, C; Rouzi, P (Walter de Gruyter GmbH, 2001-11-01)
The thermal catalytic hydrosilylation of 1,3-butadiene (1), trans-2-methyl-1, 3-pentadiene (2), 2,3-dimethyl-1,3-butadiene (3), and isoprene (4), with triethylsilane were studied in the presence of M(CO)(3) (o-xylene) (M = Cr, Mo, W) complexes in polar and nonpolar solvents such as tetrahydrofuran, hexane and toluene. Mo(CO)(3) (o-xylene) was found to be the only active catalyst for the hydrosilylation of 3 with triethylsilane, which gave 1-triethylsilyl-2,3-dimethyl-2-butene (3a), as hydrosilylated product...
Experimental investigation of drag reduction effects of polymer additives on turbulent pipe flow using ultrasound Doppler velocimetry
Zeybek Vural, Serife; Bayram, Göknur; Uludağ, Yusuf (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey, 2014-01-01)
Drag reduction in fully developed turbulent pipe flow with 4 concentrations (200 to 500 wppm or mg/kg) of low molecular weight sodium carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) in aqueous solutions was investigated experimentally. Drag reduction was determined by pressure drop measurements. Maximum drag reduction achieved was 22% using 500 wppm CMC solution. To observe the impact of the presence of CMC on the flow, ultrasound Doppler velocimetry (UDV) was employed to monitor the instantaneous velocity distributions. Expe...
Electrochemistry of nickel(II) complexes with N,N'-bis(3,5-di-tert-butylsalicylidene)polymethylenediamines
Ozalp-Yaman, S; Kasumov, VT; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-03)
The electrochemical oxidation of several N,N'-polymethylenebis(3,5-di-tert- butylsalicylaldiminato)nickel(II) complexes, Ni(L-x), has been studied by cyclic voltammetry and in situ UV-Vis spectroscopy in DMF Cyclic voltammograms of Ni(L-x) (x = 1-4) complexes displayed two-step oxidation processes under nitrogen gas atmosphere. The first oxidation peak potentials of all the Ni(II) complexes corresponds to the reversible one-electron oxidation process of the metal center, yielding Ni(III) species. EPR spectr...
Poly(ethylene terephthalate)/Carbon Nanotube Composites Prepared With Chemically Treated Carbon Nanotubes
Yesil, Sertan; Bayram, Göknur (Wiley, 2011-07-01)
Surfaces of multiwalled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were functionalized by treatment with strong acid mixture (purification) followed by modification with sodium dodecyl sulfate, poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG), and diglycidyl ether of Bisphenol A (DGEBA). Poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET)-based conductive polymer composites were prepared by using these CNT by means of melt mixing with a twin screw extruder. Amount of carboxylic acid groups on the CNT surface increased after acid treatment but decreased with surfac...
Aryl butenoic acid derivatives as a new class of histone deacetylase inhibitors: synthesis, in vitro evaluation, and molecular docking studies

New aryl butenoic acid derivatives have been synthesized by combining hydroxy- or methoxy-substituted phenyl rings as the capping group, with a double bond in the short linker as well as metal binding groups, enoic ester, and salts bearing either methyl or morpholine. These compounds have been shown to possess promising histone deacetylase inhibition activities via in vitro fluorometric assay and molecular docking studies.
