, compared to active carbons, they have better mechanical resistance and allow to shape their hydrophobic–hydrophilic surface character [ 8 ]. A new method of synthesis and characterization of mesoporous carbonaceous materials was presented in the

polymers may improve their mechanical behaviour (stiffness [ 3 – 6 ], failure resistance [ 7 , 8 ] and dimensional stability [ 6 , 9 , 10 ]), their gas and solvents barrier properties [ 11 – 13 ] and their thermal degradation and chemical resistance [ 6

Abstract  

In this work the thermal properties of chitins of different origin were compared using a thermogravimetric technique. The αsr method, which makes possible a comparison of the thermal resistances of materials with similar thermostability, was used. The basic range of thermal conversion was determined. In this range, the thermal resistance depends on the chitin origin. The value of activation energy was calculated. No influence on the average molecular mass, crystallinity and the degree of acetylation on the thermal resistance was observed. On the other hand, it was found that the thermal stability depends on the size and perfection of crystallites as well as on the crystalline form of the chitin.

Abstract  

The applicability of MDF synthesis procedure, the coincidence of the interfacial cross-linking and the moisture resistance of MDF-related mixes based on two industrial Portland cements (CEM I, CEM II) and poly-P are reported. The knowledge of the moisture resistance of synthesized material is of paramount importance; two independent experimental methods confirmed that the moisture resistance of MDF cements based on CEM I (or CEM II) with 5% of poly-P achieves sufficient levels at 50% RH and at ambient values of RH. The results of thermal analysis are directly related to the former knowledge on the appearance and role of cross-links in the interfacial zone of MDF cements.

The most current in vitro and in vivo results in the BioArena system and under greenhouse conditions provide a good opportunity for a fundamental renewal of biological detections and interactions in layer liquid chromatography. The adsorbent bed in a column liquid arrangement is not suitable for biological detection because the living cells do not grow there. Contrarily, the planar adsorbent layer enables the in situ biodetection of antimicrobials and the interactions among separated compounds, cells, and further various cofactors (molecules), making the study of mechanisms of action possible. The basic elements of the time- and dose-dependent quadruple immune response of plants to pathogens in relation to the function and reactions of formaldehyde and its reaction products (mainly endogenous ozone) were demonstrated. This finding opens a new horizon in the field of disease resistance in plants and perhaps in general in the biological world. These results give a good basis and possibility for studying and understanding the unique high-dilution phenomena as well, and at that time, they promise the elimination of century contradictions in this field.
