Julieta S Riva, Lidia M Yudi


The electrochemical behaviour of several cationic dextran polyelectrolytes, aminodextran (AD), cationic dextran (CD) and diethylaminoethyl dextran (DEAE-D), at the polarized water/1,2-dichloroethane interface was studied. An investigation into the influence of the scan rate, concentration, pH, the nature and the concentration of the anion present in the organic electrolyte and the effect of the polymer molecular weight is presented. Different responses were obtained and explained considering the structural difference between these species, mainly the position of the positive charge in the macromolecule. The AD polymer is not transferred to the organic phase, regardless of molecular weight, while CD and DEAE-D are transferred from the aqueous to the organic phase at E = 0.650 V, independent of the polymer concentration and of the molecular weight. The shape of the voltammograms corresponding to DEAE-D transfer as well as the magnitude of the peak currents and the peak potential values were all dependent on the pH of the aqueous phase solution and on the nature and concentration of the anion present in the organic electrolyte. Based on this dependence, we postulated a mixed mechanism, which involves the transfer of dissolved and ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
