Abstract  

The TG analyses are given for variously meta- and/or para-linked aromatic polyamides with various benzimidazolyl (BI)contents. The TG curves of the polymers were evaluated within 600C by use of an equation for multiple events. The TG curves of BI-substituted polymers are expressed for triple events, though the TG curves of unsubstituted polymer are expressed for double events. The amount of residue of BI-substituted polymers at 800C is larger than that of unsubstituted polymers, perhaps because moieties concerning BI degrade at higher temperatures.

Abstract  

In order to estimate the total radioactivity induced in a concrete shield by thermal neutron-capture reactions at high-energy accelerator facilities, the observed activity of 36Cl in the concrete is expected to serve as an indicator of the thermal neutron fluence. Since 36Cl can also be produced from K and Ca by spallation reactions, we measured these production rates in order to clarify the contribution of each reaction. The Cl, K, and Ca targets were irradiated with neutrons having a maximum energy of 500 MeV. As a result, the production rates of 36Cl from Cl were only two orders higher than those from K and Ca. It was found that the 36Cl production ratios from Cl, K, and Ca were 6.7%, 6.8%, and 86.5%, respectively, and Ca was the main source of 36Cl production.

Abstract  

The positron emitters11C,13N and18F and their labeled compounds have been produced for studies on plants using a newly developed positron emitting tracer imaging system. Although this system covers, at present, a limited area in a plant, the distribution of the positron emitter fed into the plant can be visualized dynamically. Further development of positron-emitter-labeled compounds is expected to elucidate the physiological function of plants in vivo.
