Examples

  • As a stand-in, they used a much less viscous liquid known as methoxy-nonafluorobutane, originally formulated as a more environmentally friendly replacement for ozone layer-depleting industrial solvents.

  • It can react with OH to form formaldehyde, or return to CH3O2 in very roughly equal yields, or it can photodissociate to produce methoxy, CH3O.

    Passing Gas

  • In a clean atmosphere it can react with itself to form the methoxy, but this is really slow, compared to the channel involving reaction with HO2 which has a much higher concentration.

    Passing Gas

  • Where NO is available, the CH3O2 reacts with it to form methoxy CH3O.

    Passing Gas

  • Ricinine is an alkaloid (3-cyano-4-methoxy-N-methyl-2-pyridone) that shares a common plant source with Ricin, and its presence in the system infers Ricin exposure.

  • Right: A modified form of pectin (low methoxy) can be bonded into a continuous meshwork by means of added calcium ions (the black dots), no matter what the sugar content.

  • We also developed a means of producing fragments of polyatomic molecules (free radicals such as benzyl and methoxy) by directing a pulsed laser into a specially designed pulsed supersonic nozzle, and studying these cooled in the supersonic beam.

  • I have therefore developed the determination of the carboxyl group by acidimetry by using phenolphthalein as indicator; I have further elaborated the determination of the methoxy and methylimide groups.

  • I do not want to go into details, but would nevertheless stress the enormous simplification of the micro-apparatus as compared with the macro-procedure in connection with the methoxy determination; the weighing of the substance in tin-foil caps is new in principle and of great advantage, as the hydriodic acid does not bump because of its tin iodide content.
