General description

Electrochemical oxidation of 3-methylpyridine (3-MP) at synthetic boron-doped diamond (BDD) thin film electrode has been investigated by cyclic voltammetry and bulk electrolysis. 3-Methylpyridine forms adduct with 2,6-dichloro-4-nitrophenol and the structure of adduct has been determined by X-ray diffraction.

O 1s X-ray emission and X-ray absorption spectroscopy is applied to probe hydrogen bonding of water (D(2)O) in 3-methylpyridine. Owing to element selectivity of X-ray spectroscopies the electronic structure of water in the binary mixture was observed selectively. Based on...

The three IQ (2-amino-3-methylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline) compounds IQ, MeIQx (2-amino-3,4-dimethyl[4,5-f]quinoxaline) and MeIQ (2-amino-3,4-dimethylimidazo[4,5-f]quinoline) have been found in boiled pork juice. To determine which Maillard reaction products are important in the formation of IQ-type mutagens in boiled pork juice, six Maillard reaction products...

In a previous work (J. Phys. Chem. B 2003, 107, 9837), we reported liquid-liquid-phase splitting at negative pressures in mixtures of H2O + D2O + 3-methylpyridine (3-MP) at the limit of pure H2O as the solvent, thus extending for the...
