Fickinger of Penn State and her team have converted a mixture of petroleum and coal into a fuel that contains heat-resistant cycloalkanes.
F purposes of discussing their fates and effects, most can be conveniently divided into four categorie alkanes, cycloalkanes, olefins (or alkenes) and cycloalkenes, and aromatics.
Alkanes in the oils are, according to structure, divided into three classes: n-alkanes, branched alkanes and cycloalkanes, their distribution is shown in Figure 2.
But that process still leaves a haystack of many compounds (such as branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics) that cannot be identified.
The agents detected in both water and sediment included petrol effluents, including many poly-cyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), benzene, toluene, and xylene, long-chain and branched hydrocarbons, phenols, alcohols, chlorinated alkylbenzenes, trichlorethylene, trichlorophenol, cresols, cycloalkanes, aldehydes, ketones, many brominated and chlorinated aromatic organic compounds, di-(2-ethyihexyl)phthalate, diphenyl, hexachlorocyclohexanes, methylene chloride, styrenes, organic and inorganic acids, fertilizers and their by-products, nitrogen by-products, vinyl chlorides, salts, dust, and cement in powder form, as well as radionuclides of uranium, radium, and radon.
They include nitrogen dioxide, formaldehyde, and a wide range of alkanes, cycloalkanes, terpenes, aromatic compounds, and hydrocarbons.
The results of the risk-based sub-study shows that treating the more toxic aromatic-constituents of gasoline is significantly more effective and economical, relative to treating the less toxic alkanes and cycloalkanes.
Growth on cycloalkanes involves an additional oxygenase which almost is never present in strains that use aliphatics (Bartha 1986).
Deuterium labelling has allowed the stereochemistry of the ring closure to cycloalkanes to be determined.
11], and the molecular reference volume, [Mathematical Expression Omitted] using series of n-alkanes, branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, arenes, ethers, ketones, monochlorinated alkanes, and water.
It contains paraffins, cycloalkanes, aromatics and hetero-aromatics with nitrogen, sulphur and oxygen atoms.
All main classes of monomers including heterocyclics, cyclic olefins and alkynes, and cycloalkanes, are discussed separately as well as their specificities regarding the ring-opening polymerization techniques, the mechanisms, the degree of control, the properties of the related polymers and their applications.
