Abstract  

The heat capacities of Ln(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2) (Ln = La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Me2dtc = dimethyldithiocarbamate) have been measured by the adiabatic method within the temperature range 78–404 K. The temperature dependencies of the heat capacities, C p,m [La(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2)] = 542.097 + 229.576 X − 27.169 X 2 + 14.596 X 3 − 7.135 X 4 (J K−1 mol−1), C p,m [Pr(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2)] = 500.252 + 314.114 X − 17.596 X 2 − 0.131 X 3 + 16.627 X 4 (J K−1 mol−1), C p,m [Nd(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2)] = 543.586 + 213.876 X − 68.040 X 2 + 1.173 X 3 + 2.563 X 4 (J K−1 mol−1) and C p,m [Sm(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2)] = 528.650 + 216.408 X − 16.492 X 2 + 12.076 X 3 + 4.912 X 4 (J K−1 mol−1), were derived by the least-squares method from the experimental data. The heat capacities of Ce(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2) and Pm(Me2dtc)3(C12H8N2) at 298.15 K were evaluated to be 617.99 and 610.09 J K−1 mol−1, respectively. Furthermore, the thermodynamic functions (entropy, enthalpy and Gibbs free energy) have been calculated using the obtained experimental heat capacity data.

Trueperella (T.) pyogenes is an opportunistic pathogen that causes suppurative diseases in domestic animals. In this work, the properties, pathogenesis and phenotypic diversity of T. pyogenes isolates from bovine mastitis were studied. Both pyolysin (plo) and collagen-binding protein (cbp) virulence factor genes were detected by PCR in all T. pyogenes isolates (n = 50). Using the tissue culture plate method, 90% of T. pyogenes isolates were able to form biofilms. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 13 antimicrobials against T. pyogenes isolates were determined. High susceptibility was observed to rifampin (96%), ampicillin (94%), ciprofloxacin (94%), and penicillin (92%), while low susceptibility was found to trimethoprim-sulphamethoxazole (10%) and bacitracin (2%). The intracellular assay revealed that T. pyogenes isolates had different cytopathogenic effects on cells. The high percentage (28.6%) of T. pyogenes isolates suggests that this bacterium is an important contributor to mastitis. Moreover, the high occurrence of multidrug resistance, biofilm production, intracellular survival, and the temporal dynamics of T. pyogenes interactions are key factors for a better understanding of how immunity acts on infections with these bacteria and how they evade immune surveillance, thus highlighting the need for the prudent use of antimicrobial agents in veterinary medicine.

Abstract

The thermal decomposition behavior of 3,4,5-triamino-1,2,4-triazole dinitramide was measured using a C-500 type Calvet microcalorimeter at four different temperatures under atmospheric pressure. The apparent activation energy and pre-exponential factor of the exothermic decomposition reaction are 165.57 kJ mol−1 and 1018.04s−1, respectively. The critical temperature of thermal explosion is 431.71 K. The entropy of activation (ΔS ), enthalpy of activation (ΔH ), and free energy of activation (ΔG ) are 97.19 J mol−1K−1, 161.90 kJ mol−1, and 118.98 kJ mol−1, respectively. The self-accelerating decomposition temperature (T SADT) is 422.28 K. The specific heat capacity of 3,4,5-triamino-1,2,4-triazole dinitramide was determined with a micro-DSC method and a theoretical calculation method. Specific heat capacity (J g−1K−1) equation is C p = 0.252 + 3.131 × 10−3 T (283.1 K < T < 353.2 K). The molar heat capacity of 3,4,5-triamino-1,2,4-triazole dinitramide is 264.52 J mol−1 K−1 at 298.15 K. The adiabatic time-to-explosion of 3,4,5-triamino-1,2,4-triazole dinitramide is calculated to be a certain value between 123.36 and 128.56 s.

Abstract

The thermal decomposition behaviors of 1,2,3-triazole nitrate were studied using a Calvet Microcalorimeter at four different heating rates. Its apparent activation energy and pre-exponential factor of exothermic decomposition reaction are 133.77 kJ mol−1 and 1014.58 s−1, respectively. The critical temperature of thermal explosion is 374.97 K. The entropy of activation (ΔS ), the enthalpy of activation (ΔH ), and the free energy of activation (ΔG ) of the decomposition reaction are 23.88 J mol−1 K−1, 130.62 kJ mol−1, and 121.55 kJ mol−1, respectively. The self-accelerating decomposition temperature (T SADT) is 368.65 K. The specific heat capacity was determined by a Micro-DSC method and a theoretical calculation method. Specific heat capacity equation is (283.1 K < T < 353.2 K). The adiabatic time-to-explosion is calculated to be a certain value between 98.82 and 100.00 s. The critical temperature of hot-spot initiation is 637.14 K, and the characteristic drop height of impact sensitivity (H 50) is 9.16 cm.

Abstract

In an effort to understand the reaction of antibiotic hydrolysis with B2 metallo-β-lactamases (MβLs), the thermodynamic parameters of imipenem hydrolysis catalyzed by metallo-β-lactamase ImiS from Aeromonas veronii bv. sobria were determined by microcalorimetric method. The values of activation free energy are 86.400 ± 0.043, 87.543 ± 0.034, 88.772 ± 0.024, and 89.845 ± 0.035 kJ mol−1 at 293.15, 298.15, 303.15, and 308.15 K, respectively, activation enthalpy is 18.586 ± 0.009 kJ mol−1, activation entropy is −231.34 ± 0.12 J mol−1 K−1, apparent activation energy E is 21.084 kJ mol−1, and the reaction order is 1.5. The thermodynamic parameters reveal that the imipenem hydrolysis catalyzed by metallo-β-lactammase ImiS is an exothermic and spontaneous reaction.
