Halogenation of an iron porphyrin causes severe saddling of the macrocyclic structure and a large positive shift in the iron(III)/(II) redox couple. Although pre-halogenated iron(II) porphyrins such as Fe(TFPPBr8) [H2TFPPBr8, beta-octabromo-tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)-porphyrin] are relatively resistant to autoxidation, they rapidly reduce alkyl...

We have measured the dielectric relaxation of several glass forming branched alkanes with very low dielectric loss in the frequency range 50 Hz-20 kHz. The molecular liquids of this study are 3-methylpentane, 3-methylheptane, 4-methylheptane, 2,3-dimethylpentane, and 2,4,6-trimethylheptane. All liquids display...

To investigate the possibilities of personal ambient monitoring and biological monitoring for methylpentane isomers. The performance of activated carbon cloth to absorb 2- and 3-methylpentane was studied by experimental vapour exposure followed by solvent extraction and gas chromatography (GC). Urine...
