Substituted chromens were synthesised owing to their biological activities as antibacterial, anticoagulant, vasodilatory and hypothermal (Khodairy et al., 2001; El-saghier et al., 1983; Okumur et al., 1962).
The genesis of chalcocite can be categorized into three general models: (1) hypogene hypothermal ores that precipitate from hydrothermal fluids (>150[degrees]C), (2) red bed and stratiform "sedimentary" ores that precipitate from fluids that circulate through sedimentary basins at temperatures <150[degrees]C, and (3) supergene enrichment ores that precipitate from low to ambient temperature oxidative fluids in near-surface environments.
Analyzing the T80 (the temperature in which the material loses 20% of its mass) in air, it is possible to evidence that it is lower than the corresponding temperature in nitrogen (Table 3): in fact, for the organic constituents of the studied formulations, the exposure to an oxidative hypothermal environment shifted the degradation processes to lower temperatures [16].
Each sample was placed in an anticoagulative tube or treated with heparin before hypothermal ultracentrifugation to separate serum for measurement.
In other words, it means the subcutaneous temperature could not be used to assess the hypothermal symptoms.
The patient developed hypothermal episodes with bradycadia and decreased the level of consciousness which was remitted after intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg) treatment.
Na-KCa geothermometer was more suitable for water with high calcium and using for cold water or hypothermal as well as immature hydrothermal did not lead to misdiagnosis and or unusual high temperature [14,24].
