crystallization study using different methods for the same experimental data of a glass. The present work studies the crystallization kinetics and evaluates the activationenergies for the Se 70 Te 15 In 15 glass under non-isothermal conditions. Using DSC scans
Two glasses, the first one with the composition of Li2O·2SiO2 and the second one with the addition of CaO, P2O5 and CaF2 in the stoichiometric ratio corresponding to fluoroapatite were prepared and their tendency to crystallize has been studied
by non-isothermal DTA analysis. The values of kinetic parameters calculated using the isoconversional integral method have
been used to determine the temperature dependencies of both the length of isothermal induction period and the length of overall
isothermal crystallization for both glasses. The estimated dependencies indicate that the glass containing CaO, P2O5 and CaF2 has a lower thermal stability.

Osteoarthritis, although classically conceived of as a degenerative consequence of aging, is a disease with an increasingly
well-characterized molecular pathophysiology. Pathologic changes in cartilage composition and molecular organization, as well
as elevated water content, alter the exquisite balance of biomechanical properties. Much of what is known about changes in
the extracellular matrix in osteoarthritis comes from animal models.
Previously, thermogravimetric methods have not been used for compositional thermoanalytical study of normal and degenerative
human hyaline cartilage. For this reason the research group established a sufficient new thermogravimetric protocol, which
proved water content elevation contributing to disease progression.

The electrical conductivities and the electronic, IR and NMR spectra were measured for some ethyl cyanoacetate phenylhydrazone derivatives and their lanthanide complexes in the temperature range 20–200‡C. Semiconducting behaviour was detected for these systems (positive dσ/dT). A correlation was established between the electrical properties and the structures of the free ligand molecules and their complexes. The mechanism of the conduction process was evaluated. The electronic absorption spectra in ethanol were measured and are discussed. Elemental analyses were performed and the IR and NMR spectra (of the diamagnetic complexes) were measured to throw more light on the structures of these complexes.
