Experimental and Computational Studies of the Kinetics of the Reaction of Hydrogen Atoms with Carbon Disulfide

Description: Article discussing an investigation of the reaction of H + CS₂ products. The reaction was found to be pressure dependent and in the fall-off region or near the low pressure limit. Transition state theory yields an estimate for the high-pressure limit of addition over 290–300 K of 1.3 × 10−9 exp( −7.2 kJ mol −1 /RT) cm3 molecule −1 s −1. Uncertainties are discussed in the text.

The C₂H₂ + NO₂ Reaction: Implications for High Pressure Oxidation of C₂H₂/NOx Mixtures

Description: Article discussing an experimental and kinetic modeling study of the interaction between C₂H₂ and NOx under flow reactor conditions in the intermediate temperature range (600–900 K), high pressure (50–60 bar), and for stoichiometries ranging from reducing to strongly oxidizing. The results show that presence of NOx serves both to sensitize and inhibit oxidation of C₂H₂.

Enhancing the Discovery of Tabletop Games

Description: Collections of three-dimensional materials may not be discoverable to library users if they lack adequate metadata. Discovery of these collections may be enhanced through the application of relevant cataloging standards and con-trolled vocabularies. This paper outlines how librarians at the University of North Texas Libraries used these strategies to increase access to a large collection of tabletop games.

Further Analysis on Solubility Measurement and Thermodynamic Modeling of Benzoic Acid in Monosolvents and Binary Mixtures

Description: Article discussing further analyses of the recent report (by Sandeepa et al.) on the solubility of benzoic acid in six monosolvents (i.e. tributyl phosphate, diacetone alcohol, methyl-n-propyl ketone, methyl acetate, amyl acetate, and isooctane) and five binary systems (i.e. ethanol + hexane, isopropyl alcohol + hexane and chloroform + hexane, acetone + hexane, and acetone + water) along with some numerical analyses. The reported calculations have been reanalyzed based on combined nearly ideal binary solvent/Redlich-Kister, the modified Wilson model, general single model, Jouyban–Acree model and Jouyban–Acree–van’t Hoff model. The investigated models provide good estimation of the solubility behavior of benzoic acid in the binary solvent mixtures at various temperatures.

Managing Sudden Loss

Description: Managers often face tough, emotional situations at work. One of the biggest is guiding employees and departments successfully through the loss of a coworker. Not only are there emotional components but there are also more technical and procedural responsibilities that may be overlooked. These facilities, technological, and human resources tasks need to be handled sensitively and in a timely manner. Remembering whom to contact, what property needs to be considered, and how to produce final paychecks are just a few of the concerns managers will face in a trying time. This guide aims to serve as a checklist of the basic components and tasks managers will face after the sudden loss of an employee.

The First Stalin Mass Operation (1927)

Description: This article based on new archival documents introduces a new episode of mass operations, which took place in June and July of 1927 and was directed against the broad group of “anti-Soviet” forces. It preceded many practices of mass terror of the 1930s with judicial and extra-legal mechanisms. The goal of this article is to explain motivations, justifications, and mechanisms of this repressive campaign and to put this episode in the wider context of Soviet terror. Facing the combination of a perceived danger of war and real internal social hostility expressed in broad defeatism, both threatening the perpetuation of their governmental powers, authorities resorted to repressions. The 1927 episode highlights the factor of a perceived threat of war as a crucial motivating element in Soviet repressive tactics.

Some numerical analyses on the solubility of vanillin in Carbitol® + water solvent mixtures

Description: This article reports solubility values of vanillin (component 3) in 2-(2-ethoxyethoxy)ethanol (Carbitol®, component 1) + water (component 2) mixtures at five temperatures from 298.15 to 318.15 K correlated with the Jouyban-Acree model combined with van't Hoff or Apelblat equations, and obtains models in second degree regarding the mixtures compositions.

Giant spin Hall effect in two-dimensional monochalcogenides

Description: This article, using calculations from first principles, reveals for the first time giant intrinsic spin Hall conductivities (SHC) in these materials. In particular, the article shows that the SHC resonances can be easily tuned by combination of strain and doping and, in some cases, strain can be used to induce semiconductor to metal transition that makes a giant spin Hall effect possible even in absence of doping.
