The accessibilities of the carboxyl groups may, in addition, have been lowered because of the conformation changes caused by the protonation.
Although there is a wealth of different NMR experiments that provide information on different aspects of organic matter chemistry, by far the most common use of of NMR spectroscopy in this field is to determine the relative proportions of broad functional group classes of C types, for example, alkyl, O-alkyl, aryl, and carboxyl.
Based on the solution P concentrations, it appears that benzoic and cinnamic acids behave as distinct groups, with the key differences in their structures being the distance of the carboxyl group from the benzene ring and the inclusion of a double-bond in the carboxyl side chain, both of which may influence their ability to form stable complexes with P in solution.
The viscosity peak could be reduced in a variety of ways (higher carboxyl, higher hydroxyl, lower molecular weight), but the best way was reverse thinning, i.
5 to 25 parts by weight of a heat-expandable microcapsule including a shell, and a substance capable of vaporizing or expanding under heating to thereby generate a gas and a nonpolar oil, both encapsulated in the shell, wherein the shell is made of a thermoplastic resin obtained by polymerization of a nitrile-based monomer (I), a monomer (II) having an unsaturated double bond and a carboxyl group in the molecule thereof, an optional monomer (III) having two or more polymerizable double bonds, and an optional copolymerizable monomer (IV) for adjusting the expansion properties.
chromatographic ones) enabled to get a full picture of the distribution of oil shale oxygen-containing functional groups between phenol, carbonyl, carboxyl and so-called unknown functions.
Alpha-helices are green cylinders; arrows point from the free amino end to the free carboxyl end.
Each nanodiamond's surface possesses carboxyl groups that allow a wide spectrum of compounds to be attached to it, not just gadolinium(III).
PROLOR's CTP technology is based on a short amino acid sequence, the Carboxyl Terminal Peptide that occurs naturally in humans.
Found in turmeric--the main ingredient in curry--curcumin can undermine certain TLRs when a specific part of curcumin's chemical structure--known as a "beta unsaturated carboxyl group"--reacts with so-called "sulfhydryl groups" in TLRs.
