At this stage, the complex is believed to have lost one molecule of ammonia in which case either the thiocyanate ion or one molecule of 2- mercapto pyridine becomes a bridge between the dimerized Rhenium.
iPP/POSS/ DMDBS and iPP/POSS-DMDBS, that could be attributed to the lower nucleation density and crystal growth rate, which caused by the interaction between POSS via mercapto groups according to the references 4.
The present invention relates to a rubber composition for tires, including: a modified diene rubber A which has been terminally modified with a specific acrylamide compound; a modified diene rubber B which has been modified with a silicon or tin compound and a specific modifying compound or with the modifying compound; and a silane coupling agent containing a mercapto group, the modified diene rubbers A and B, taken as a whole, having a weight average molecular weight falling within a specific range.
In addition, the accumulation of the tested metals in liver could be based on the greater tendency of the elements to react with the oxygen carboxylate, amino group, nitrogen or sulphur of the mercapto group in the metallothionein protein which is at highest concentration in the liver (Al-Yousuf et al .
