BRANCHED ALKANES FROM BLUE-GREEN ALGAE

Description: Branched alkanes from blue-green algae were separated on a 750 feet high resolution capillary gas chromatographic column. The mixture was found to be 90% of 1:1 ratio 7-methyl, and 8-methyl-heptadecane, and 10% of 6-methylheptadecane. An optical rotation of +2.5 {+-} 0.5 was obtained on a 5 mg of mixture.

Explosive material qualification chemistry sublimation studies of hexanitroazobenzene (HNAB)

Description: Sublimation studies of hexanitroazobenzene (HNAB), Sandia Lot 43-11-B, have shown all sublimation residues to be essentially HNAB (form 3), with HNAB (form 2) found in the sublimates. The sublimation condensate in the lower temperature ranges (80--130 C) has a non nitro group material, and an HNAB like (nitro group) material was found in the 160--190 C condensates. The presence of aliphatic impurity(s) in all fractions, from 80 to 220 C, has been determined albeit the concentration decreases significantly at the higher temperature ranges (200--220 C).

Food and Feeding of Juvenile Chinook Salmon in the Central Columbia River in Relation to Thermal Discharges and Other Environmental Features

Description: The relationship of thermal discharges from operating Hanford reactors to food and feeding of juvenile chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) in the central Columbia River, Washington was studied in 1968 and 1969. The primary objectives were to (1) evaluate the food composition and feeding activities of the fish and (2) determine if heated effluents influenced their welfare. Environmental conditions (seasonal changes in river temperatures and flow volumes) in relation to thermal requirements of young chinook are detailed. Data on food organisms utilized by the fish in 1968 and 1969 are presented, whereas analyses for possible thermal effects are based on the more extensive 1969 data. No consistent differences attributable to thermal increments were evident. The lack of detectable effects apparently results from the fact that the main discharge plumes occur in midriver and the effluents are well mixed before reaching inshore feeding areas. The transient nature of fish at each sampling site and the availability of food organisms in the river drift are ecological factors affecting critical thermal evaluation.

Measurement of Pair Interactions in Neodymium Ethyl Sulfate

Description: The EPR spectrum of single ions of /sup 143/Nd in a crystal of Neodymium Ethyl Sulfate, predominantly of isotope /sup 142/Nd, was observed under condition of very high Boltzmann factor, i.e., high fields and low temperatures. It was found that the interactions with neighboring ions displaced the hyperfine lines from uniform spacing, and that by measuring the deviation it was possible to find the nearest neighbor interaction. The departure from a purely magnetic dipolar interaction is smaller than previous measurements would indicate. It was found that EPR resonance at large values of H/T in magnetically concentrated crystals can yield accurate values of spin-spin interactions.

METHANE INCORPORATION BY PROCARYOTIC PHOTOSYNTHETICMICROORGANISMS

Description: The procaryotic photosynthetic microorganisms Anacystis nidulans, Nostoc and Rhodospirillum rubrum have cell walls and membranes that are resistant to the solution of methane in their lipid components and intracellular fluids. But Anacystis nidulans, possesses a limited bioxidant system, a portion of which may be extracellularly secreted, which rapidly oxidizes methane to carbon dioxide. Small C{sup 14} activities derived from CH{sub 4} in excess of experimental error are detected in all the major biochemical fractions of Anacystis nidulans and Nostoc. This limited capacity to metabolize methane appears to be a vestigial potentiality that originated over two billion years ago in the early evolution of photosynthetic bacteria and blue-green algae.

PHOTOCHEMICAL COUPLING OF BENZO [a]PYEENE WITH 1-METHYLCYTOSINE.POSSIBLE MECHANISM OF THE LINKAGE IN VIVO

Description: Irradiation of benzo[a]pyrene 1 with 1-methylcytosine hydrochloride 2a (molar ratio 1:10) at 3500 {angstrom} in methanol-acetone produces the 6-(1-methylcytos-5-yl)-benzo[pa]pyrene 3. The structure of the photoproduct shows the hydrocarbon bound through the most active 6-carbon atom to the nucleophilic 5-position of the base. The specific substitution of both moieties combined with other data allows them to understand the carcinogenic activity of the hydrocarbon and thereby to propose a possible mechanism of their linkage in vivo. In this model, the K region does not play a role in triggering the cancer process.
