Through bimolecular transfer processes, a minimal number of growing radicals undergoes a chain interchange with dormant species through an intermediate adduct.
Both IM1 and IM2 transform into bimolecular product fragments [P.sub.1] and [P.sub.2] completely.
This work was carried out with GPS tracking systems, GPS 20Hz (K-Sport, Italy) and using the K-Fitness data analysis software, performed by Sport Advanced Research Group by University of Urbino Carlo Bo, School of Sport and Health Science Department of Bimolecular Science and K-Sport Universal, Italy.
The diagnosis is confirmed by bimolecular genetic testing to identify the characteristic translocation abnormalities.
The model with heat losses provides more detailed information about the effects of interphase heat exchange and numeric exponent characterizing sensitized, Arrhenius, and bimolecular rate of reactions.
These factors may include the Shockley-Read-Hall [125-128], the trap-assisted [128, 129], the surface [130, 131], and the bimolecular [132, 133] recombination phenomenologies of free charge carriers.
Non-geminate bimolecular recombination coefficients in polymer/fullerene solar cells have been determined to be 6 x [10.sup.-11] [cm.sup.3] [s.sup.-1] (for PDPP-5T/ PCBM) [33], 3 x [10.sup.-12] [cm.sup.3] [s.sup.-1] and 2 x [10.sup.-13] [cm.sup.3] [s.sup.-1] (both for P3HT/PCBM) [34, 35].
On top of that, Voc values experience a big gap when compared with other conditions; this is very possible when fewer bimolecular recombinations occur as a result of reduced number of traps and grain boundaries [12].
Structures of the intramolecular A(htel-21) and the bimolecular [[[G.sub.4][T.sub.4][G.sub.4]].sub.2] GQs were investigated by using 5-iodouracil (i[osup.5]U) [132].
The rationale for our proposal is that both formulas are equivalent since we can calculate that a drug with an I[C.sub.50] of 1 [micro]M for example would exhibit both 90% activity at 10 [micro]M and 50% activity at 1 [micro]M (based on the equation for a classical bimolecular reaction, i.e.
