In view of the increasing importance of thiophene derivatives as chemotherapeutic agents, it was considered of interest to apply the Reformatsky reaction to the synthesis of compounds containing the thiophene nucleus with the thought that these might serve as intermediates for further syntheses.
The purpose of this piece of research is to determine the chemical composition of soft winter wheat, and to make a comparative study of it. A study is also made concerning its possibilities as a balanced food.
The purpose of this research problem is to determine the chemical composition of the blackeyed pea and to make a comparative study of the results. The value of the blackeyed pea as food, its chemical nature, and possible industrial uses are studied and recorded.
The purpose of this work is to make a fairly complete chemical analysis of the Mebane 804-50 cottonseed kernel. A brief history of cotton plant and the economic value of its products are also presented.
The purpose of this investigation is to determine the suspended organic matter and the total phosphorus in the waters of Lake Dallas and to evaluate these findings. Since organic matter floating in lakes is largely composed of minute plants, animals, and detritus derived from animals and plants, the fertilizing effect of phosphorus must be considered as an integral part of this problem.
The purpose of this study is to determine the specific reaction or velocity constants and the equilibrium constant in a system of methyl alcohol and acetic acid, a bimolecular reaction of the second order.
The object of this paper is to determine the optimum concentration of sulfur dioxide to be used in the commercial dehydration of the sweet potato by this process. Attention has been given to two aspects of the problem, (1) the effect of sulfur dioxide upon the extraction of water from the sweet potato by mechanical means, and (2) the effect of sulfur dioxide upon the stability of the carotene in the sweet potato over a period of several months.
The study herein described represents a continuation of the work on 5-(2-thienyl)-5-substituted hydantoins which has been in progress in the laboratories of the North Texas State College for the past several years. It has for its purpose the study of the effect of lengthening the carbon chain connecting a cyclohexyl radical to 5-(2-thienyl)hydantoin in the 5- position.
The work encompassed by this thesis is partially a reproduction of the results obtained by John A. Marcia in his work on the photo-chemical reactions of branched hydrocarbons. The previous work done on this particular problem was rendered partially valueless because of the loss of the liquid hydrocarbon product when a fractionation column at the Texas Company Laboratory, Beacon, New York, broke during the fractionation run.
It was decided to determine whether or not 2,2,3-trimethylbutane could be formed by the photochemical reaction of isobutane and propane in the presence of mercury vapor energized by ultraviolet radiation from a mercury vapor lamp.
The water which supplies the city of Henrietta, Clay County, Texas, is obtained from the Little Wichita River. A concrete dam was built across the river at a point about a mile and a half north of town.
Evidence indicates that the sorghums were grown as cultivated crops in Egypt as early as 2200 B. C. The sorghums are native to Africa, but indications are that they may have evolved independently in India.
The purpose of this investigation is to find which season of the year organic matter increases most in the bottom deposits of Lake Dallas, the reason for the increase, and the amount of organic matter increase from year to year. It is hoped that this study will be beneficial in understanding the conditions in artificial reservoirs.
Although many sympathomimetic amines have been prepared, the perfect one has not yet been made. Chemists are still attempting to synthesize a selective drug with more prolonged effects and free from side reactions or compensatory vasodilation. With this idea in mind it seemed feasible to prepare a group of O-substituted hydroxylamines.
Lignite is a low grade of coal widely distributed throughout the world. A complete analysis of lignite has not been made, due to the difficulty encountered in the separation of the complex organic compounds bonded therein.
This thesis discusses the preparation of a-(o-nitro-p-methylphenylmercapto)-acetophenone by the reaction between acetophenone and o-nitro-p-methylbenzenesulfenyl chloride in boiling chloroform. The use of stannous chloride in glacial acetic acid for the reduction of nitro groups to amino groups was found generally satisfactory in spite of the difficulty often met with in isolating the amino product.
The introduction of the ether linkage into various compounds imparts physiological activity, hence the synthesis of various ether derivatives involving the phenol group seemed to be a possible route to tuberculostatic substances. The compounds reported in this work are to be tested for tuberculostatic properties by Parke, Davis and Company.
This investigation was limited to the preparation of substituted phenoxyacetic acids and related compounds. The types of substances prepared for testing can, in general, be placed in three groups. These are: aryloxyacetic acids, arylmercaptoacetic acids, and those acids containing the thiophene nucleus.
This thesis describes a procedure used to synthesize a-(p-Aminophenylsulfonyl)-p-methylacetophenone, a-(p-aminophenylsulfonyl)-p-bromoacetophenone, and a-(p-aminophenylsulfonyl)-p-methoxyacetophenone for study as possible new anti-tubercular agents.
This thesis describes the procedures used in preparation of the derivatives of certain alkyl phenylacetates and the necessary intermediate compounds. Compounds resembling the structure of Benadryl were prepared in this study in the hope that at least one might prove to be of value in the fight against allergy.
This thesis describes three separate and unrelated chemical experiments. The first investigates analogs for the compound DDT. The second investigates the properties of O-substituted hydroxylamines. The third investigates the action of slight changes to the structure of an antihistaminic agent.
