Variation in radical antioxidant capacity and the total amount of carotenoids in razor clams, Ensis marginatus (Pennant, 1777), from the Çanakkale Strait (Abidealtı), Turkey

Metabolic activities such as breathing and digestion, resulting from natural functions of the body through oxidation, lead to the formation of free radicals that cause cancer, premature cardiac aging and some chronic diseases. Antioxidants are […]

Development of an extraction procedure and analysis of electrostatically stabilized silanates from aqueous solutions

The analyzed organosilicon derivatives of electrostatically stabilized silanates belong to a group of pentacoordinated compounds. These derivatives are:1-(N-morpholiniomethyl)spirobi(1-sila-2,5-dioxacyclopentan-3-on)at,1-(N-morpholiniomethyl)spirobi(1-sila-2,5-dioxa-4-methylcyclopentan-3-on)at,1-(N-morpholiniomethyl)spirobi(1-sila-2,5-dioxa-4-(i-propyl)cyclopentan-3-on)at. In the course of the work, the extraction process and optimization of conditions for separation and determination […]
