Thermodynamic properties for aqueous solutions containing sodium pentane-1-sulfonate (C(5)SO(3)Na) in the absence and presence of poly(ethyleneglycol) (PEG) or poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) determined as a function of surfactant concentration from the density, sound velocity, viscosity, conductivity and vapor-liquid equilibria data, are reported here. Densities and sound velocities, allowing for the determination of apparent molar volumes and compressibilities, were measured at 288.15-313.15 K. Changes in the apparent molar properties upon micellization were derived using a pseudo-phase-transition approach and the infinite dilution apparent molar volumes and compressibilities of the monomer and micellar state of C(5)SO(3)Na in the investigated solutions were determined. The values of the infinite dilution apparent molar properties of micellar states of C(5)SO(3)Na in aqueous polymer solutions are larger than those in pure water. Vapor-liquid equilibrium data such as water activity, vapor pressure, osmotic coefficient, activity coefficient and Gibbs free energies were obtained through isopiestic method at 298.15 K. The variations of the critical micelle concentration (CMC) of C(5)SO(3)Na in water and in aqueous PEG and PVP soluti...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.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within the membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease in genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research on Alzheimer's disease and MS4A.

Pediculosis pubis

Pediculosis pubis is a disease caused by a parasitic insect known as Pthirus pubis, which infests human pubic hair, as well as other areas with hair including eye lashes. Here is the latest research.

Rh Isoimmunization

Rh isoimmunization is a potentially preventable condition that occasionally is associated with significant perinatal morbidity or mortality. Discover the latest research on Rh Isoimmunization here.

Genetic Screens in iPSC-derived Brain Cells

Genetic screening is a critical tool that can be employed to define and understand gene function and interaction. This feed focuses on genetic screens conducted using induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived brain cells. It also follows CRISPR-Cas9 approaches to generating genetic mutants as a means of understanding the effect of genetics on phenotype.

Enzyme Evolution

This feed focuses on molecular models of enzyme evolution and new approaches (such as adaptive laboratory evolution) to metabolic engineering of microorganisms. Here is the latest research.
