A guide by the idea that the rate of SN2 substitution reactions are highly affected by the charge of the atoms at or near to the reaction center together and the bond length between carbon atom and the leaving group. Also the total strain energy of reacting molecules has great effects on the reaction rate. The present work employed high level ab nitio calculation (RHF/3-21G) in order to calculate the above parameters for a set of fifteen bromoalkyl amines undergoing. SN2 replacement reaction of the bromide ion by hydrogen thiosulphate ion in acidic medium.
The results of these calculations showed that the alkyl substituent at the amino group has pronounce effects on the charge value at the atoms of the molecules at or near the reaction center. On the other hand, the total strain energy of the molecules increases, as the bulkiness of the N-substituents and chain length of alkyl amine increase which prove that these theoretical calculations are in accordance with the well known chemical principle. A simple correlation of the above parameters with experimental values of the rate constant for the substitution reactions at pH equal to 4.9 showed a good relation with charge at the carbon atom attached to the leaving group as well as the charge at the leaving group. While the C-Br bond length and total strain energy showed no significant effects on the reaction.

The neurobehavioral effects of continuous dosing (as food additive) with potassium nitrate were assessed in albino rats. The rats were divided into the five groups, the control group have been fed in a concentrated forage (Barley, wheat, soybean, corn, wheatbrane) where as the treatment groups were fed with the same concentrated forage with the addition of potassium nitrate in different percentages (second group added 0.1%, 3rd group added 0.1% with 0.2%ascorbic acid as antidote, 4th group added 0.2%, 5th group added 0.2%with0.4%ascorbic acid as antidote) respectively for 5 weeks. Potassium nitrate did not produce overt signs of toxicosis but significantly decreased the open-field activity and also decreased the number of rearing during the open-field activity test, they reached to minimum level at the 4th week of treatment were reported, these decrease were followed gradual elevation to reach that values of the control group level at the end of study period. Potassium nitrate significant delayed the negative geotaxis at 45° angle and retain to reach the control level in 5th week in .The treated rats also suffered from a gradual increase in the body weight in comparison with pretreatment values, where as there was no effective significant the number of fecal boluses and swimming endurance. In this study the ascorbic acid (as antidote) in group 5 (0.4% with 0.2% potassium nitrate) differed significantly with group 4 (0.2% potassium nitrate only) that means the ascorbic acid give good result when it used for treatment of nitrate poisoning in animals. The results support the notion that in the absence of overt signs of toxicosis, neurobehavioral tests could be used to detect adverse behavioral changes induced by potassium nitrate.

Photoinitiated polymerization of methyl methacrylate has been observed using cw-CO2 laser radiation of (10.6 µm). Both of DSC and TGA thermal analysis techniques were used for identification of the thermal characteristics (Tg, Tc, and Tm) as well as the thermal stability of the laser photoinitiated PMMA and they compared with that corresponding to classical, conventionally initiated PMMA.

In cw-CO2 laser radiation, each of powers (10, 15, and 20W) was used. Although a definite increase in Tg value and thermal stability were observed while power are (10W,15W and 20W), the polymerization pattern remained basically the same in all these cases.

Multi-Photon absorption reaction phenomenon was attributed to elucidate the mechanism of interaction between the CO2 laser light and MMA monomer molecule.

Lattice thermal conductivity for silicon nanowires and quantum well are theoretically investigated in the temperature range from 2K to 300K. The modified Gallaway method for bulk crystal is used for calculating lattice thermal conductivity. All important phonon relaxation mechanism such as Umklapp scattering, Mass-difference scattering and boundary scattering are calculated at 300K. The result show that the modification of the acoustic phonon modes and phonon group velocities due to spatial confinement of phonons lead to significant increase in the all phonon relaxation rate. From our numerical results, we predicate a significant decrease of the lattice thermal conductivity in cylindrical nanowires with diameter (D=10-nm), and quantum well with thickness of the same size, results compared to that of the reported experimental as well as theoretical values.

The study tested the effect of the lipopolysaccharide, which was extracted from Klebsiella pneumoniae, on immune response of BALB/c mice infected with secondary hydatid disease caused by experimental infection with Echinococcus granulosus protoscolices.
The immunopathological changes accompanied with secondary hydatid disease in mice treated with LPS were followed in comparison with the positive and negative control group along 3-5 months period of the experiments. Criteria taken into consideration included the changes in the total and differential count of WBCs, and non-specific (innate) immune response, expressed by the change in the phagocytic index.
Results of the present study revealed an increase in the means of total and differential count of WBCs, expressed by increase in the number of lymphocytes accompanied by a decrease in number of monocytes, neutrophils and eosinophils in treated mice. An increase in the nonspecific immune responses is represented by increase in the mean of phagocytic index.
Therefore, it may be concluded that the lipopolysaccharide extracted from Klebsiella pneumoniae can be used as a non-toxic stimulator of non-specific immunity against infection with secondary hydatid disease.

The present study included isolation of Giardia lamblia from stools of patients then inoculation of giardiasis in the rat, Rattus rattus norvegicus. The induction was of two forms: parasites radiated and unradiated aiming to throaw a light on the effect of gamma radiation on virulence of infection, duration of resistance, and a period of existence in the host. The criteria which were used in this study are the mean of the production of cysts, reduction of host weight, and effect of infection on histological changes of the intestine via villi /crypts ratio. The cysts of G. lamblia were irradiated with Gamma rays in a dose 0.1122 × 10-3 ml rad/ hr and 1.5624 ×10-3 ml rad/hr for 2 and 24 hours respectively. A comparison was made between results of radiated and a unradiated G. lamblia ccysts after oral administration of dose 2 ×104 cyst/ml.
The results revealed that radiation reduced the duration of resistance and existence of the parasites in the host body
- The radiation reduced the resistance duration and existence of the parasite in host body, and reduce the production of cysts in highly significant level.
- Radiation did not reduce reduction the weight of the host infested with radiated parasites.
- Reduction in villi/crypts ratio is less animals infected with radiated parasites than those of unradiated ones.

The antagonistic ability tests of the biocontrol agent Trichoderma viride against pathogenic fungi, indicated a high inhibiting effect on the growth of two isolates of Fusarium solani and Rhizoctonia solani with modrate degree of antagonism and weak with Macrophomina phasealina. The effect of the fungal polysaccharide produced by Alternaria alternata on the radial growth of pathogenic fungi and the biocontrol agent showed that the relatively high concentrations (i.e. 4 and 5 gm/l) reduced their growth slightly, but stimulated the development of spores of Trichioderma viride simultaneously and increased their numbers. Seed treatment with spore suspension of T. viride cause significant reduction in infection percentage and disease severity of both pre and post emergence seedlings damping-off, and led to an increase in seedling length and dry weight of the seedlings in pot experiments. The addition of adhesive material (i.e. Fungal polysaccharide or gum Arabic) to the seeds increased the reduction in infection percentage and degree of severity of the disease, and also increased length and dry weight of the seedling. The microbial polysaccharide was better than gum arabic in controlling the disease, although no significant differences were noticed between them. Moreover, it improved growth characters of the plants.

The properties of the yrast levels of 78-82Sr even-even isotopes have been studied. The method of gamma energy over spin (E-GOS) has been used to analyze the energy levels of these isotopes which shows that the two isotopes 78 Sr and 80Sr lie in the γ-unstable, O(6), limit, but 82Sr isotope lies in the transition region (SU(5)→SU(3)).
The interacting boson model IBM-1 has been used to calculate the energy levels for these three isotopes each for the limit it lies and a comparision with the experimental data is done and shows a good agreement.
The backbending in the energy levels for 80Sr and 82Sr are observed but not for 78Sr.

The rates of bulk etching (VB) and track etching (VT) are considered an important parameters in identifying the track profiles and its growing rate. So, this paper aims at determining an empirical relation for the bulk etch rate of CR-39 (250 µm) with etching time and - irradiation dose. A number of CR-39 detector pieces were exposed to different doses of exposure times (9-30) hrs with 3 hrs step of increasing. A KOH solution of concentration 25% and temperature (70 1)OC was used in chemical etching of the exposed and the standard pieces of the detector which have showed increasing of VB with -doses that exposed to. A fitting process of VB curves was carried out with different exposure times for used etching times, and it was found that the polynomial form is the appropriate one to estimate the constants of the suggested empirical equation for VB as it is related to the etching and -exposure time. However, the results of the suggested equation of VB have showed a good agreement with the experiment ones under the considered conditions.

In this paper we consider parameter estimation in a linear regression setting with inequality linear constraints on the regression parameters. Most other research on this topic has typically been addressed from a Bayesian perspective. In this paper we apply Bayesian approach with Gibbs sampler to generate samples from the posterior distribution. However, these implementations can often exhibit poor mixing and slow convergence. This paper overcomes these limitations with a new implementation of the Gibbs sampler. In addition, this procedure allows for the number of constraints to exceed the parameter dimension and is able to cope with equality linear constraints.

some variables may have nominal or ordinal scale, this causes a failure of analyzing the Pearson's correlation matrix by factor analysis. However, it was suggested to replace the elements of the correlation matrix by correlation coefficients which should be calculated according to the scales of the two correlated variables. The suggested correlation matrix might become an indefinite matrix which can not be analyzed by factor analysis, so the suggested methods were established to eduction a positive definite matrix or positive semi-definite matrix.
