The title compound {systematic name: [2-(1-hydroxycyclohexyl)-2-(4- methoxyphenyl)ethyl]dimethylazanium benzenesulfonate monohydrate}, C 17H28NO2 +·C6H 5O3S-·H2O, is a besylate salt hydrate of the antidepressant drug venlafaxine. In the crystal, besylate anions and water molecules self-assemble, forming hydrogen-bonded dimers linked around inversion centers, with graph set R 44(6). The crystal packing features a chain of alternate dimers and venlafaxine cations in the b-axis direction with the components linked by O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds and C-H⋯O and C-H⋯π interactions. This is the first example of a venlafaxine cation with a closed conformation, as it features an intramolecular N-H⋯O interaction involving the protonated N atom. Source

It is reported in the literature that alloy C-22 (N06022) was found to be susceptible to stress corrosion cracking (SCC) in presence of bicarbonate ions, at temperatures higher than 60°C and anodic applied potentials in the order of 400 mVSCE, (where SCE is the saturated calomel electrode) when using slow strain rate tests (SSRTs). This potential range of cracking susceptibility was associated with the instability of a film that may form on the surface. In order to elucidate the role of the alloying elements on the SCC susceptibility of nickel (Ni)-based alloys, four alloys - C-22 (N06022), 600 (N06600), 800H (N08800) and Ni-201 (N02201) - were tested under the same conditions. Results showed that even though C-22, 600, and 800 may have similar electrochemical anodic behavior, only C-22 may present a clear case of SCC at anodic potentials. © 2015, NACE International.

We revisit the ultra-fast diffusion characteristics of Fe, Co, Ni, and Cu solutes, in the hcp hosts Ti and Zr, by using Density Functional Theory. The energetics of several point defect configurations, deemed relevant for solute diffusion, is evaluated. The results support the long standing beliefs that the diffusing species is interstitial in nature, and that some kind of complexing is involved at low temperatures. Though quantitative agreement with experiment is difficult to assess, we show that a rather simple dissociative model is able to rationalize the observed trends, in particular, why the Arrhenius graphs are straight for Ti whereas, generally, they are curved downwards for Zr. © 2012 Elsevier B.V.
