A new HPLC method has been established for determination of 3-monoiodotyrosine (MIT), 3,5-diiodotyrosine (DIT), 3,5-diiodothyronine (T2), 3,3′,5-triiodothyronine (T3), 3,3′,5′-triiodothyronine (rT3), and thyroxine (T4) produced by hydrolysis of iodinated casein with barium hydroxide. The hydrolytic stability of each analyte was evaluated. Iodinated casein was hydrolyzed with saturated barium hydroxide solution for 16 h at 110°C and the barium ions were then removed as barium sulfate. Reversed-phase HPLC was performed on a 2.1 mm × 150 mm, 5 μm particle, C18 column with a mixture of acetonitrile and 0.1% (v/v) formic acid as mobile phase at a flow rate of 0.2 mL min–1. Acetonitrile was maintained at 5% (v/v) for 5 min and then increased linearly to 50% (v/v) within 35 min. All analytes were quantified by measuring the absorbance at 280 nm. Validation data indicated the method was linear, with regression coefficients (R2) > 0.998, in the concentration ranges investigated. Sensitivity was adequate—limits of detection (LOD) were 0.04–0.38 μg mL–1 and limits of quantification (LOQ) were 0.05–0.38 μg mL–1. Accuracy and precision were acceptable — for all the analytes recovery was 82.0–93.0% and repeatability, as relative standard deviation, was 1.0–3.0%. Hydrolytic stability tests indicated MIT and DIT are much more stable than the other analytes. rT3 was not released directly from iodinated casein but was formed by deiodination of T4 during hydrolysis. The method could be used to identify iodinated casein, to evaluate its activity and quality, and for supervision and regulation of feed additives.

The molar heat capacity, Cp,m, of a complex of holmium chloride coordinated with L-aspartic acid, Ho(Asp)Cl2·6H2O, was measured from 80 to 397 K with an automated adiabatic calorimeter. The thermodynamic functions HT-H298.15 and ST-S298.15 were derived from 80 to 395 K with temperature interval of 5 K. The thermal stability of the complex was investigated by
differential scanning calorimeter (DSC) and thermogravimetric (TG) technique, and the mechanism of thermal decomposing of
the complex was determined based on the structure and the thermal analysis experiment.

As one 3-D coordination polymer, lead formate was synthesized; calorimetric study and thermal analysis for this compound were
performed. The low-temperature heat capacity of lead formate was measured by a precise automated adiabatic calorimeter over
the temperature range from 80 to 380 K. No thermal anomaly or phase transition was observed in this temperature range. A four-step
sequential thermal decomposition mechanism for the lead formate was found through the DSC and TG-DTG techniques at the temperature
range from 500 to 635 K.

The (R)-BINOL-menthyl dicarbonates,
one of the most important compounds in catalytic asymmetric synthesis, was
synthesized by a convenient method. The molar heat capacities Cp,m
of the compound were measured over the temperature range from 80 to 378 K
with a small sample automated adiabatic calorimeter. Thermodynamic functions
[HT–H298.15] and [ST–S298.15] were derived in the
above temperature range with a temperature interval of 5 K. The thermal stability
of the substance was investigated by differential scanning calorimeter (DSC)
and a thermogravimetric (TG) technique.
