A single crystal of sodium and potassium cinnamates was grown by slow evaporation of methanol solution at room temperature.
The effect of metals sodium and potassium on the electronic structure of cinnamic acid was studied. In this research many
analytical methods such as FTIR, UV, second harmonic generation (SHG) and TG–DTA were used: The spectroscopic studies lead
to conclusions containing the distribution of the electronic charge in molecule, the delocalisation of π electrons and the
reactivity of metal complexes. The SHG efficiency is more pronounced in the presence of sodium and potassium dopant in the
growth medium. Incorporation of sodium and potassium increase the thermal stability ensuring the suitability of material for
possible non-linear optical (NLO) application up to 180 °C.

A single crystal of urea–thiourea was grown by slow evaporation of aqueous solution at room temperature. The bright and transparent
crystals obtained were characterised by TG–DTA, UV and FTIR spectral analyses. A fitting decomposition pattern for the title
compound was formulated on the TG curve which shows a two stage mass loss between 200 and 750 °C. DTA curve shows exothermic
peaks supporting the formulated decomposition pattern in this temperature range. The UV and FTIR spectra show the characteristic
absorption, vibration frequencies due to urea–thiourea zinc chloride crystals. Detailed structural analysis of the compound
is under progress.

A mixed crystal of urea–thiourea was grown by slow evaporation of aqueous solution at room temperature. The bright and transparent
crystals obtained were characterized by thermogravimetric–differential thermal analysis (TG–DTA), UV and FTIR spectroscopic
analyses. A fitting decomposition pattern for the title compound was formulated on the TG curve which shows a two stage weight
loss between 200 and 750 °C. In this temperature range DTA curve shows exothermic peaks supporting the formulated decomposition
pattern. The UV and FTIR spectra show the characteristic absorption, vibration frequencies due to urea–thiourea mixed crystals.
Detailed structural analysis of the compound is under progress.

The present study was aimed to investigate the effect of different ultraviolet radiation doses on the growth, and antioxidant enzymes of three cultivars of soybean (
L.) (‘Giza-22’, ‘Giza-35’ and ‘Giza-111’). The seeds were grown in plastic pots equally filled with a mixture of pre-sieved sandy loam soil, peat-moss and vermiculite (2: 1: 1) for two weeks. The planted pots were divided into four groups and exposed to white light (1,100 Lux) (control), 3.2, 6.4 and 12.8 KJ m
radiation, respectively, for 30 days and then harvested. The results indicated that shoot dry weight was decreased with increasing UV
radiation doses; it was found that supplementation of UV
radiation increased root dry weight in all studied cultivars of soybean plants. With referring to oxidative stress, it was found that increasing UV radiation induced significant increases in H
concentration, lipid peroxidation and cell death (as ion leakage) in soybean cultivars. Increasing supplemental doses of ultraviolet radiations significantly induced reductions in all studied antioxidants (catalase, peroxidase and superoxide dismutase (SOD) activities and glutathione content).

Ezetimibe is the first in a new class of antihypercholesterolemic drugs. Since it has not long been available on the market, many of its properties may still be revealed. Analytical methods for its determination are scarce, especially regarding serum samples. A simple, fast, and effective high-performance liquid chromatography-ultraviolet (HPLC-UV) method for the determination of ezetimibe concentration in human serum has therefore been developed. Three mobile phases were analysed, and original modifications to the concentration and flow parameters were made. Of five potential internal standards (IS), only nitrendipine was found to be suitable. The analytical wavelength was chosen based on the absorption spectrum of ezetimibe in the mobile phase. Finally, an extraction analysis was performed using two different solvents, and the extrahent volume was optimised. The final method developed was as follows. Single extraction of 1 mL serum sample, spiked with IS, was performed using 10 mL of methyl-t-butyl ether. Separation was obtained at ambient temperature on a Waters C18 Symmetry Shield (4.6 mm × 250 mm, 5 μm) column. The isocratic mobile phase was composed of acetonitrile and 0.1 M ammonium acetate aqueous solution 55:45 (v/v), set at flow rate of 0.75 mL min−1. Ezetimibe was detected at a wavelength of 232 nm after 5.49 min, and the IS was detected at 8.05 min. The developed method has been validated according to ICH standards. It was found to be specific, precise, accurate and linear over the range 10–800 ng mL−1 with R2 > 0.998, and detection and quantification limits of 4.60 ng mL−1 and 13.94 ng mL−1, respectively. The method has been applied to clinical serum samples. The developed technique allowed for successful in vivo assessment of ezetimibe concentrations in samples obtained from hypercholesterolemia patients who are chronically receiving the drug.
