Gamma attenuation parameters such as mass attenuation coefficient, effective atomic numbers, electron density, buildup factor, and specific absorbed fraction of energy of tungsten copper alloys (CuW(50), CuW(55), CuW(60), CuW(65), CuW(70), CuW(75), CuW(80), CuW(85) and CuW(90)) are evaluated. G-P fitting method has been used to compute energy absorption build-up factor for a wide energy range (0.015-15 MeV). The computed absorption build-up factor is used to estimate specific absorbed fraction of energy. The thickness of the medium up to 10mm and with penetration depth up to 40 mean free paths is considered. The dependence of the specific absorbed fraction of energy on incident photon energy, penetration and the thickness of the medium has also been studied. These gamma attenuation parameters change with the energy. For a given alloy's Zeff, buildup factors and specific absorbed fraction of energy values are minimum for CuW(50) and maximum for CuW(90). The mass attenuation coefficients and electron density values for CuW(50) are higher than for CuW(90). The present study is useful in the selection of gamma shielding materials. © Copyright 2016 Inderscience Enterprises Ltd.

Awareness about the toxic effects of non-essential metals are still lacking in developing countries. Lead is one among them, which ranks second in the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's top 20 lists of toxic metals.The more widespread environmental emissions of lead have been drastically reduced through the introduction of unleaded petrol. As a result, publicity about this common toxin has considerably diminished. However, there is still a problem from these sources in countries with less developed controls. Furthermore, there is still one source of lead regularly causing poisoning, namely colouring materials in printing and fluxes, on which this paper focuses. Lead poisoning has been known for centuries. Scientific studies of the harmful effects of lead exposure date to the 1700s. Lead concentrations of blood samples from printing industries in Rajajinagar were determined by meta-exchange reagent followed by Anodic Stripping Voltammetry. We have analyzed blood samples from 22 employees working in Flux and Printing press from Rajajinagar, the city of Bangalore to assess the feasibility of using the lead in solvents. Some of the solvents being used even now are known to contain this toxic metal at alarming levels. We have a list of persons who are quite often suffered from headaches and backaches. © 2014 RASĀYAN.

CaSiO3:Eu3+ (1-5 mol%) red emitting phosphors have been synthesized by a low-temperature solution combustion method. The phosphors have been well characterized by powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and optical spectroscopy. PXRD patterns reveal monoclinic CaSiO3 phase can be obtained at 900 °C. The SEM micrographs show the crystallites with irregular shape, mostly angular. Upon 254 nm excitation, the phosphor show characteristic fluorescence 5D0 → 7F J (J = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4) of the Eu3+ ions. The electronic transition located at 614 nm corresponding to 5D0 → 7F2 of Eu3+ ions, which is stronger than the magnetic dipole transition located at 593 nm corresponding to 5D 0 → 7F1 of Eu3+ ions. Different pathways involved in emission process have been studied. Concentration quenching has been observed for Eu3+ concentration > 4 mol%. UV-visible absorption shows an intense band at 240 nm in undoped and 270 nm in Eu3+ doped CaSiO3 which is attributed to oxygen to silicon (O-Si) ligand-to-metal charge-transfer (LMCT) band in the SiO3 2- group. The optical energy band gap is widened with increase of Eu3+ ion dopant. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

Two nitro substituted ethyl (2E)-2-cyano-3-phenylprop-2-enoate with molecular formula C12H10N2O4 have been synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. These two structures assemble via weak C-H···O=C/O (nitro group), C-H···N, and π-π intermolecular interactions which contribute towards the stability of the crystal packing. The lattice energies have been calculated using the PIXEL approach. Furthermore, high level DFT + Disp calculations for comparison with the pairing energies obtained from PIXEL method have been performed. An analysis of Hirshfeld surfaces and fingerprint plots facilitates a comparison of intermolecular interactions, which are the key elements in building different supramolecular architectures. Graphical Abstract: The manuscript highlights the evaluation of molecular conformation and crystal packing in two nitro derivatives of ethyl (2E)-2-cyano-3-phenylprop-2-enoate. 1. Molecular conformation in the solid state and compared with that in the gas phase. 2. Vibrational frequency calculations using TURBOMOLE. 3. Lattice Energy calculations using PIXEL. 4.

The title isomers, viz. the N-(3-methylphenyl)-, (I), and N-(2-methylphenyl)-, (II), derivatives, both C26H28N 2O4S, adopt an E configuration that places the thio-phene and trimeth-oxy-phenyl groups on opposite sides of the C = N double bond, providing a suitable orientation for formation of an intra-molecular N - H⋯N hydrogen bond. However, while the mol-ecule in (I) is close to being planar, the N-methyl-phenyl group in (II) is twisted significantly from the plane of the remainder of the mol-ecule. Both crystal structures are essentially layered and there are no inter-molecular N - H⋯O hydrogen bonds. Compound (I) has a significantly higher calculated density than (II) (1.340 cf 1.305 Mg m-3), indicating that the mol-ecular packing in the meta isomer is overall more efficient than that in the ortho isomer. © 2010 International Union of Crystallography.

The supramolecular structures of eight aryl protected ethyl-6-methyl-4- phenyl-2-thioxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidine-5-carboxylates were analyzed in order to understand the effect of variations in functional groups on molecular geometry, conformation and packing of molecules in the crystalline lattice. It is observed that the existence of a short intra-molecular C-H⋯π interaction between the aromatic hydrogen of the aryl ring with the isolated double bond of the six-membered tetrahydropyrimidine ring is a key feature which imparts additional stability to the molecular conformation in the solid state. The compounds pack via the cooperative involvement of both N-H⋯SZC and N-H⋯OZC intermolecular dimers forming a sheet like structure. In addition, weak C-H⋯O and C-H⋯π intermolecular interactions provide additional stability to the crystal packing. © 2010 The Royal Society of Chemistry.
