Safety matches are at the very core of modern civilization, playing an unnoticed but vastly important part in everyday human activities since the middle of the 19th century. Although the general public is hardly aware of the strict and complex requirements that matches are expected to meet, it takes careful chemical engineering to control the match microstructure in a way that guarantees safe and reliable operation. In this contribution we summarize results obtained in this field by the cooperation of a match manufacturer and two Hungarian universities.

Jackfruit seed starch was annealed by single stage and double stage processes and characterised for changes in properties. Single-stage annealing gave higher crystalline order than double-stage annealed starch. No major change in the granular morphology was observed. Annealing resulted in notably altered pasting properties. Increased peak viscosity was indicative of molecular rigidity developed in the granules due to annealing. The increased thermal stability in DSC and specific peak sharpening in the XRD patterns of single-stage annealed starches indicated development of ‘site specific’ crystallinity. The new crystallites formed during the first stage of double-stage annealing were heat labile as crystallinity lowered after the second stage. Single stage annealed jackfruit seed starch can be used for noodle making.

Wild Origanum vulgare populations in Hungary have been analysed. In 2010 the morphological variability of 11 populations in five shires was investigated, the features of habitats were also described. The difference in elevation between the lowest and highest locality is 630 m. Nine plant associations, four soil types, variable pH between 4.81–7.96 and humus content from 0.54% to 6.97% were determined. Among the examined individual plants the maximum length of stem was 107 cm, the highest number of branches was 14 pairs, furthermore procumbent and mellow stems were also found. The defined colours of inflorescences are dyes of pink or purple. Despite to these we found individuals in one population with white flowers, green bracts and calyces.

Noble rot of the grape is a complex microbiological-biochemical process having grate importance in the Tokaj wine district. In this study, morphology and development of Botrytis cinerea in the berry skin as well as the presence of other moulds and yeasts on the digested exocarp of the noble rotted grapes (aszú) were investigated and presented by scanning electron microscopy. Another aim of this work was a comprehensive taxonomical characterisation of the yeasts present on the surface of the “aszú” berries in the Tokaj wine district in five vintage years. The dominant yeasts were isolated and taxonomically identified according to phenotypical properties. The most prevalent yeast species of the aszú grapes were Metschnikowia pulcherrima in the vineyard and Candida stellata in the winery (the latter species has been recently differentiated for two species, C. stellata and C. zemplinina). These two Candida species seem to be typical yeasts of Tokaj aszú berries, particularly after picking, transporting and storage of the aszú grape. These postharvest operations significantly influence mould and yeast populations of botrytized grapes.

In May 2011, young Impatiens walleriana Hook. f. plants showing downy mildew symptoms were collected from a greenhouse (Kecskemét, Hungary). The upper surface of affected leaves turned yellow and white fungal-like growth was observed on the underside. Diseased plants wilted and rapidly collapsed, resulting in losses of nearly 100%. Downy mildew of impatiens can be caused by two pathogens, Plasmopara obducens or Plasmopara constantinescui (syn: Bremiella sphaerosperma), which can be distinguished by the symptoms and by morphology of sporangiophores and sporangia. For molecular identification the 5′-end of the large subunit of ribosomal RNA gene was amplified by PCR using NL1 and NL4 primers and cloned and sequenced. The nucleotide sequence of the Hungarian isolate showed highest identity (99.72%) with two isolates of Plasmopara obducens from the United Kingdom and Serbia. On the basis of the symptoms, molecular and morphological characters, the pathogen was identified as P. obducens. The appearance of the pathogen in Hungary seriously endangers the production of I. walleriana, which is a popular ornamental in gardens and city parks. The chemical plant protection is not effective against the pathogen, by the occurrence of the first symptoms the diseased plants should be removed from the plantlet and must be destroyed.

Multiwall carbon nanotubes were synthesized either on the outer surface of iron containing mesoporous silicates using catalytic chemical vapor deposition (CCVD) or in the pore system of morphologically different mesoporous materials (hexagonal or spherical shapes) with graphitization of the template molecules. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) study shows that the CCVD method resulted in long, bent and well graphitized carbon nanotubes on impregnated samples irrespective to the morphology of the silicate. Isomorphously substituted spherical MCM-41 with low Si/Fe ratio was found to be active catalysts for carbon nanotube production in CCVD as well. Synthesis of MWNTs with graphitization of template molecules in the pores of MCM-41 was successful in hexagonal MCM-41 samples irrespective that they contain or not iron in the silicate framework. Carbon nanotube formation was not observed in spherical derivatives of these samples during the graphitization process.
