Abstract  

The isotope exchange behavior of thiourea with bis(thiourea)mercury(II) complex has been studied. The concentrations of both the metal ion and the complex were varied. The results show that the complex is labile in the kinetic sense. An increase in concentration increases the rate of exchange. Increase in temperature also results in an increase of the rate of exchange.

Abstract  

Isotope exchange behavior of bis-resacetophenone phenylhydrazone) nickel(II) complex with nickel(II) in tri-n-butyl phosphate and methanol medium has been studied. The studies were carried out at different temperatures varying the concentration of both metal ion and the complex. The results show that the complex is labile in the kinetic sense. Increase in temperature increases the isotope exchange rate. The increase in concentration also results in an enhancement of the rate of reaction.

Abstract  

The results of an instrumental neutron activation analysis of some elemental concentrations in different soil samples near the industrial areas at Tirupati, India, are reported. Altogether 14 elements, Sm, La, Cr, Co, Zn, Cs, Ce, Th, Rb, Na, K, Sr, Fe and Eu were determined. The samples were irradiated with neutrons at the 100 kW Triga - Mainz research reactor and the induced activities were measured by gamma-ray spectrometry using an efficiency calibrated high resolution high purity germanium (HPGe) detector in connection with a multichannel analyzer. The results are discussed.

Abstract  

Elemental concentrations of a few medicinal leaves are determined by instrumental neutron activation analysis using the single comparator (k 0) method. Data obtained for neem leaves, collected from two different places, have been used to see the effect of soil condition. The applicability of the method particularly for the simultaneous determination of Ca, Mg, V and Al in biological matrices has been evaluated in terms of the detection limit, precision and accuracy. The method was validated by analysing the NIST Standard Reference Material (SRM-1571) and it was found that the elemental concentrations measured in SRM-1571 are within ±10% of the reported values.
