Although this would be beneficial for the monomer insertion, the [beta]-H transfer would be accelerated at the same time, since the bimolecular [beta]-H transfer to monomer reaction has been proposed as the main termination process for the BIP-iron systems [25].
Findings suggested that low IC50 value was recorded (37.48 ug/ml) with the use of aqueous extract of Anise which was due to the presence of different bimolecular species.
VenatoRx's collaborators include leading academicians and scientists from Robert Frederick Smith School of Chemical and Bimolecular Engineering at Cornell University; Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard; Gfree Bio, LLC; and Centro de Quimica-Fisica Molecular at the University of Lisbon, Portugal.
According to the diffusion-assisted charge transfer model proposed by Barati and Coley, [24] charge transfer between divalent and trivalent iron ions can be regarded as a bimolecular reaction.
Since the activation in ATRP is a bimolecular process, the inactive species [D.sub.n] formed by the polymer radical and the counterion is inherently stable and can only be activated sporadically, according to the activity of the transition metal that acts as a catalyst.
where [K.sub.SV] is the Stern-Volmer quenching constant, [K.sub.q] is the bimolecular quenching constant, and [[tau].sub.0] is the average lifetime of the molecule which always be considered as 1.0 x [10.sup.-8] s [22,23].
As shown in Figure 1, we collected samples at the locations shown in Figure 1 in each group at 24 h after the establishment of SAH for the further bimolecular analyses performed.
studied the interactions between p2 of rice stripe virus and three functional domains of NbFib2 including the N-terminal fragment containing a glycine- and arginine-rich (GAR) domain, the central RNA-binding domain, and C-terminal [alpha]-helical domain using yeast two-hybrid, colocalization, and bimolecular fluorescence complementation (BiFC) assays.
Within the whole testing pressure range, bimolecular dissociation product [P.sub.2] is the major product and [k.sub.P2] is negatively correlated with pressure.
