A simple and sensitive spectrophotornetric method for the determination ofphenol has been developed. The method is based on the oxidative-coupling reaction ofphenol with 4-amino-N,N-diethylaniline in the presence of potassium dichromate at pH 6 solution to form an intense bluish-green water-soluble dye that is stable and has a maximum absorption at 670nm. A plot of absorbance versus concentration shows that Beer's law is obeyed over the concentration range of 2.5-250 jag of phenol in a final volume of 25ml,(i-e 0.1-lOppm) with a molar absorptivity of 3.95 x 104 l.mor'cm"', a percentage recoveries of 98.10-100.75% and a relative standard deviation of better than ±0.4%, depending on the concentration level. The optimum conditions for full colour development are described and the proposed method is extended to some other phenolic compounds.

The reactions of thiosulphate ion with some bromoalkylamines of structure RR'N-(CH2)n-Br, where n = 2,3,4,5 or 6 and R - R1 - H, methyl, ethyl or isopropyl, were studied kinetically in an aqueous solution at different pH, The kinetic results for these reactions in basic medium gave explicit evidence in favour of the formation of cyclic intermediate during the reaction course. The rate of these reactions depends mainly on the reactivity of the cyclic intermediate. It has been found that thereactivity of large ring intermediate is mainly controlled by the energy of ring strain relief. As the ring size becomes small (smaller than five members) the rate of the reaction becomes very fast and can't be explained on the bases of ring strain relief only, In order to explain this observation other factors may affect the reactivity of the cyclic intermediate are taken into account, such as the electron density at the nitrogen atom, the sterochemical situation at the reaction centre and the probability of a successful reaction. Taking into account these factors gave a better explanation for the high reactivity of small ring are given, On the other hand, it has been observed that the reaction in acidic medium proceed with a different mechanism in which the reaction occurs by a direct attackment of the nucleophile on the methylene group attached to the bromo group. The dependence of the rate constants on temperature were studied in order to estimate the thermodynamic parameters which were utilized in the discussion of the factors affecting the rate of ring opening reaction.

The kinetics of the oxidation of nine amino acids (glycine, alanine, valine. leucine, norleucine, serine, threonine, spartic and lysine) by permanganate ion were studied in an aqueous medium. The results showed that the oxidation reaction proceeds through two different pathways, The first is noncatalyzed and the second is autocatalyzed by the colloidal inorganic product (MnO2). The rate of the noncatalyzed reaction is first-order in concentration of both amino acid and oxidizing agent, while the autocatalyzed reaction is first-order in concentration of amino acid, oxidizing and autocatalytic agent. Depending on the relation between the rate constant and temperature the thermodynamic parameters for the two pathways were calculated. A special care has been given to the effect of the structure of the group attached to chiral carbon atom of the amino acids on the rate and mechanism of oxidation reactions. Thekinetic results gave evidences supporting the proposed mechanism for the reaction, On the other hand, by measuring the rate of oxidation at different pH medium, the rate constant of oxidation of ananionic and zwitterionic form are calculated.

Wheat flour (WF) of 85% meal extraction was blended with/without 50g defatted soybean flour (DSF)/kg and enriched with 50 or lOOmg iron/kg diet used in vitro and In vivo study of protein digestibility, Sixty male weanling albino rats were used as a biological model for this study. Rats were divided into two major equal groups, First group as healthy control rats and second group as iron depleted rats. Each group was subdivided into six groups according to their body mass (BM), These subgroups fed experimental diets for 10 days.
Digestible protein (%) and its digestibility index, rat BM gain and its growth index were estimated using in vivo and in vitro methods, Dietary iron absorption, apparent digestibility, and rat nutritional status of iron depleted and healthy rats were determined. In addition the metabolic energy of the six diets and rat growth index were calculated.
Data analysis showed that, the in vivo protein digestibility index was lower than thai index of in vitro. Protein digestibility index of the anemic rats was higher than that index of healthy rats. The growth index of the healthy rats was higher than that index of the anemic rats. The rat growth index positively proportional to the dietary iron level, The DSF presence in diet caused growth index improvement. The WF+50g DSF+50mg iron diet improves protein digestibility and rat growth index.

Noise spectra of semiconductor laser subject to a phase-conjugate feedback were investigated theoretically. Time-delayed rate equations with feedback were solved and characteristic equations for relative intensity noise and frequency noise spectra were derived. Numerical results indicate that the relaxation resonance peak was moved to a new frequency region determined by the amount of feedback, This is a technological importance for the improvement of modulation bandwidth, Noise level was affected by the feedback parameters, mainly; the response time and the feedback rate.

In abnormal glow discharge under d.c, excitation at different pressure in a varying axial magnetic field in the range (0 to 6.5G) some measurements of plasma parameters, glow discharge resistance Rg electrical conductivity ag and electron temperature Te have been carried out for various discharge currents using double probe method, The results show that the average discharge current increase and the corresponding voltage across the discharge gap decreased consequently glow discharge resistance and electron temperature decreased with the increasing magnetic field while the electrical conductivity increases according to that. This is due to magnetic field confinement which restricts expansion of the plasma charged practices. These measurements show a good agreement with the previous studies.
