(Shanghai, China); Phenol (99%), anisole (98%), benzyl alcohol (99%), and benzoic acid (99%) were purchased from Sinopharm Chemical Reagent Co., Ltd.; Cyclohexanol (99%) and cyclohexyl carbinol (99%) were purchased from Aladdin Industrial Corp.
Its antioxidant potential is better than the synthetic ones such as butylated hydroxyl anisole (BHA), and butylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT) (Adegoke et al.
According to local officials, the Jiangsu-based company mainly produced raw chemical materials, including anisole, a highly flammable compound.
Among all tested samples, the highest antioxidant activity was found in hexane (H001) and methanol (M001) fractions, which were better than synthetic antioxidants butylated hydroxy toluene (BHT) and butylated hydroxy anisole (BHA).
Taking in account that coherent oxidation mechanism, some synthetic antioxidants are investigated to avoid the oxidation in stored biodiesel batches, like propyl gallate, feri-butylhydroquinone, cited in the literature as TBHQ, butylated hydroxyl anisole (BHA), and butylated hydroxyl toluene (BHT) [11-14].
Biosynthesized AgNP aqueous solution and butylated hydroxy anisole (BHA) were taken at different concentrations (2.5 [micro]g, 5 [micro]g, and 10 [micro]g/mL) in different test tubes.
This compound is a dark blue solid that is commercially available in the form of small crystals that can be dissolved in anisole, decane, toluene, and so on.
In brief, PMMA (9% in anisole) was spin-coated onto the graphene, which was dried in oven to remove the solvent.
Finally, anisole was evaluated due to its structural similarity to 1,4-DMB.
Furthermore, it is known that synthetic antioxidants used in industries such as butyl hydroxy anisole (BHA), 2,6-di-tert-butyl-4-hydroxytoluene (BHT), tercbutil- hydroquinone (TBHQ) and propyl gallate (PG), show up toxic and carcinogenic effects in animal experiments (Andrade, Cardoso, Batista, Mallet, & Machado, 2012).
