Synthesis of Heterocyclic Pyridine-Based Chalcones with Dimeric Structure

Three new heterocyclic chalcones containing pyridine moiety were synthesized and their chemical structures were determined via IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopy. General name of these compounds are α,ω-bis{3-(pyridin-3-yl)-1-(phenyl-4-oxy)prop-2-en-1-one}alkanes. The chalcones are dimers having a symmetrical structure and they can be differed by the alkyl spacer length (CnH2n, where n = 8, 10 or 12). Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) technique was employed to study their phase transition behaviors.

Electrosynthesis of Ni-Co/Hydroxyapatite as a Catalyst for Hydrogen Generation via the Hydrolysis of Aqueous Sodium Borohydride (NaBH4) Solutions

To generate hydrogen from its storage as NaBH4, a catalyst was synthesized via an electrochemical method. The catalyst, Ni-Co, had hydroxyapatite as a support catalyst. The electrochemical cell consisted of a DC power supply, a carbon anode and cathode, and a bipolar membrane to separate the cell into two chambers. The current density was adjusted to 61, 91, and 132 mA/cm2. The electrolysis time was 30, 60, and 90 min. The particles produced were analyzed by XRD and SEM/EDX and tested in the hydrolysis of NaBH4 for hydrogen generation.

Synthesis, Characterization and Application of a Diatomite-Based Composite for the Adsorption of Anionic Dyes in Aqueous Solutions

Synthesis, characterization and application of the polyaniline-diatomite (PAD) composite in the adsorption of Reactive Red 120 (RR 120) and Acid Blue (AB) dyes were carried out. The composite was prepared by the in situ polymerization of aniline. Mass of purified diatomite was mixed with a solution containing aniline dissolved in 2M hydrochloric acid at room temperature. The solid obtained was characterized using the SEM, XRD and FTIR analyses. The kinetic adsorption of dyes was described using the pseudo-second order kinetic model.


The article developed the mathematical model for the synthesis of ornamental images and implemented the software editor of ornamental images, based on symmetry theory. The paper shows the fundamental role of symmetry. It is analyzed that the symmetry theory methods are used in physics, chemistry, biology, and engineering. It was found that symmetry is based on transformation and storage. In addition, the symmetrical system is based on a set of invariants that are built according to certain rules.

The Synthesis and In Silico Antihypertensive Activity Prognosis of New Mannich Bases Containing the 1,2,4-Triazole Moiety

As a part of our continuous research on potential antihypertensive agents among morpholine and piperidine derivatives, 10 novel target compounds containing 1,2,4-triazole and morpholine or piperidine moieties have been designed and synthesized, and the docking studies have been conducted in order to find biologically active substances with the antihypertensive activity.


Synthesis methods of controllers based on the use of frequency characteristics or root hodographs are considered classic or traditional. Frequency methods are available in practical applications, and most control systems are designed based on various modifications to these methods. A distinctive feature of these methods is the so-called robustness, which means that the characteristics of a closed system are insensitive to the minor errors of the model of the real system.

The Synthesis and Theoretical Anti-Tumor Studies of Some New Monoaza-10H-Phenothiazine and 10H-Phenoxazine Heterocycles

The synthesis and anticancer activity of a series of new 3-amido derivatives of 3-chloro-10H-pyrido[3,2-b][1,4]benzoxazine and 3-chloro-10H-pyrido[3,2-b][1,4]benzothiazine is presented. The synthesized structures were characterized by UV-visible, FT-IR, 1H NMR spectroscopy and elemental analytical data. The in silico physicochemical properties disclosed that neither 3-chloro-10H-pyrido[3,2-b][1,4]benzoxazine and 3-chloro-10H-pyrido[3,2-b][1,4]benzothiazine intermediates nor their carboxyamido derivatives violate Lipinski’s rule of five.

Polymer-FLR for Mud Fluid Loss Reduction

A fluid loss reducer polymer (polymer-FLR) was synthesized using acrylamide, hydroxyethyl methacrylate, N-vinyl pyrrolidone, and N,N-dimethyl acrylamide by free radical polymerization, followed by partial hydrolysis. Its composition was confirmed using FTIR and 1H NMR spectroscopy. API mud fluid loss reduction of polymerFLR was about 10-fold lower than the blank. High temperature, high pressure fluid loss reduction of about 9-fold were achieved compared with the blank.


In recent years the chemistry of the materials for biomedical purpose is developing intensively. This is due to necessity to create of new generation of biocompatible composites for implants, effective drug delivery systems and substratum for tissue engineering. The various functional polymers that are suitable to immobilize and controlled release of synthetic medicinal substances, proteins, nucleic acids and other biopolymers under mild conditions are used for this purpose.

Genetic Algorithm Application for Synthesis and Analysis of Electromechanical Systems

One of modern possible problem solutions of analysis and synthesis in electromechanical systems is the recourse to a genetic algorithm as a method of artificial intelligence. The originality of the proposed approach lies in the usage of fractional order models to solve the above-mentioned problem. The quality function is proposed to be used in the developed algorithms for analysis and synthesis procedures of electromechanical systems. It is also proposed to get the desired outcome of results deviation from the set values by means of quality function control after each iteration.
