Glyoxylic is a highly reactive chemical compound and strong acid having two functional groups such as a carboxylic group and an aldehyde group.
In these conditions, the carboxylic group formed from TEMPO oxidation appears in the FTIR spectrum, between 1,700 and 1,750 [cm.sup.-1].
Acetic acid has 1 carboxylic group; malic, tartaric, malonic, oxalic and succinic acids have 2 carboxylic groups; and citric acid has 3 carboxylic groups.
The PEC formation occurs when protonated amine group of CH interacts electrostatically with the negatively charged carboxylic group of OKG as depicted in Figure 1.
Mainly, the CNTs is modified with a carboxylic group. The carboxylic group will create reactive sites at the sidewalls and end of the CNTs where vigorous interaction with target molecules happens.
These data were almost identical to that of torachrysone 8-O-[beta]-D-glucopyranoside (2) except for the replacement of the acetyl group by a carboxylic group ([[delta].sub.C] 171.0) at C-2 [7, 8].
Briefly, the molecular structure of RosCOOH allows its anchoring to Ti[O.sub.2] by covalent bonding (through the carboxylic group) and by electrostatic interaction (through the ammonium group).
Thus, attaching of the hydroxyl group to carboxylic group of azelaic acid was performed using DIC/DMAP methodology (Figure 3).
The bands of a carboxylic group (1740 [cm.sup.-1]) can probably be attributed to FAME as it considerably weakens with increasing dryness of the sample.
It has the availability of carboxylic group in its molecular structure which allows the easy covalent binding at the nanomaterial surface.
The O/C ratio is considered as an indicator of carbohydrate and carboxylic group contents and can be directly related to aromatization of the peat-forming organic matter (Anderson & Hepburn, 1986).
