Bifunctional chelators in radiochemistry possess both a ligand that forms a thermodynamically stable and/or kinetically inert coordination bond to a metallic radioisotope and a functional group that provides a convenient attachment point for a biological targeting group, such as a peptide.
Polyurethane or acrylic dispersions exist in water as multiphase systems, mostly in the form of water-swollen colloidal particles composed of kinetically trapped polymer chains, with some small fraction as free soluble polymers.
Suburban music fans may know them as As Is, but the Westmont-based musicians in Forest Home are now presenting themselves as a band to see with the recently released album, "Wastement." The album, a solid collection of songs, toys with varied influences: The first song, "Oh Wisconsin," starts off with echoes of blink-182 and head-bobbing Weezer, but it quickly evolves into kinetically charged, dance floor-moving indie rock.
Replying to a question about the concern raised by Iran's former foreign minister Kamal Kharazi at a seminar in Islamabad about the IMCTC, which is led by former army chief retired Gen Raheel Sharif, Gen Ghafoor said: 'Pakistan would not kinetically become part of any arrangement that is against another country.' He recalled that the IMCTC was still in evolution phase.
As interceptors approach their target, they are designed to launch a kill vehicle that would collide with the enemy warhead and destroy it kinetically. The method is known as hit-to-kill.
During the charging and discharging process, the anode electrode is the kinetically rate limiting electrode due to the faradaic process occurring during charge and discharge process [8, 12].
[37] suggest that the growth of regular and symmetric nanostructures of metal nanoparticles appears to be controlled by a bimodal mechanism, including a thermodynamically driven diffusional growth as well as kinetically controlled aggregation process.
"These features imply a more dynamic, kinetically discontinuous replication process."
The good news is that it's a very slick horror thriller, even branching out into action; a climactic chase on the deck of a moving spaceship, with Daniels (Katherine Waterston) hanging off the edge and dodging heavy objects as she tries to trap the big mama alien, is so kinetically exciting it feels like Ridley Scott trying to out-Spielberg Spielberg.
It is worth emphasizing that the S-stabilization mechanisms proposed in this paper can be also employed in other models of ordinary [47-49] or kinetically modified [65-67] nonminimal chaotic (and Higgs) inflation driven by a gauge singlet [47-49, 53, 54, 65-67] or nonsinglet [50-52, 68-70] inflation, without causing any essential alteration to their predictions.
Put crudely, since the 1991 Persian Gulf War during which the US led the expulsion of Iraq from Kuwait, the Iraq's armed forces being predominately furnished by Soviet-supplied equipment, to an extent following Soviet military doctrine, the Russian armed forces have followed a doctrine which has stressed kinetically destroying one third of an opposing force, jamming one third thus causing the remaining forces to collapse.
No matter what the breed, the sheer soundness of a dog--the strength and balance of her overall anatomy, and how that translates kinetically in the dog's ability to move from Point A to Point B--is a huge consideration, whether the dog is trotting around a show ring or jogging around your town accompanying you in your quest for 12,000 steps.
