premii Ad Astra

Asociația Ad Astra anunță lansarea proiectului Premiilor Ad Astra 2022 (link aici), care își propune identificarea și popularizarea modelelor de succes, a rezultatelor excepționale ale cercetătorilor români din țară și din afara ei. Regulamentul de participare se poate gasi aici, iar  pagina de inscriere se poate accesa aici.

Asociatia Ad Astra a cercetatorilor romani lanseaza BAZA DE DATE A CERCETATORILOR ROMANI DIN DIASPORA. Scopul acestei baze de date este aceea de a stimula colaborarea dintre cercetatorii romani de peste hotare dar si cu cercetatorii din Romania. Cercetatorii care doresc sa fie nominalizati in aceasta baza de date sunt rugati sa trimita un email la cristian.presura@gmail.com

Rezumat:

The determination of the optimum parameters for hydroxyl radicals ({radical dot}OH) formation by a TiO2 solution has been investigated by measuring the emitted fluorescence after the reaction with terephthalic acid has occurred. After UV irradiation, the terephthalic acid was transformed into 2-hydroxyterephthalic acid whose fluorescence is directly proportional to the generated {radical dot}OH. Optimization of hydroxyl radicals’ formation using TiO2 as catalyst was carried out by studying the effects of irradiation time, TiO2 concentration and terephthalic acid concentration on the production of the fluorescent HTA with an experimental design. The aim of our research was to apply response surface methodology as a chemometric method for the optimization of the reaction conditions. The combination of irradiation time, TiO2 concentration and terephthalic acid concentration was varied at designed points of a central composite rotatable design. The three factors were found to have a significant effect upon the reaction. The optimum conditions for the reaction achievement were estimated to be 10 min for the irradiation time, 25 μg mL-1 TiO2 concentration and 0.1 mmol L-1 terephthalic acid concentration. Afterwards, using these parameters the method was applied for the determination of the ability of several plant extract samples to scavenge the formed
