A rapid, simple, reproducible and sensitive spectrohpotometric method for assay of (INH) was investigated. The method is based on the reaction of INH with 2,4-dinitro-1-flourobenzene reagent to give a highly colored species with maximum at λ 428 nm in aqueous medium of pH 10.3. Beer’s law was obeyed in the range of (0.05 – 2.5) µg/ml with a molar absorptivity 2.7 x 104 l.mol l-1 cm-1 .The sandell index was 0.005 µg.cm-2 and the limit of detection was 0.00984 µg/ml. The accuracy (average recovery%) was 99.99% and the relative standard deviation (RSD) was better than ±1.0%. Also it was found that the product formed was in a ratio of 1:1 with a stability constant of 5.9 x 103 l.mol-1. The method was applied successfully to assay INH in pharmaceutical formulations and agreed well with its certified value and the British pharmacopoeia method.

A number of different levels of theoretical calculations have been used for assigning the Mulliken charge to the atoms of mono-substituted pyridines, including both quantum chemical and empirical schemes. A reasonable acceptance for any successful theoretical scheme of calculation is that atomic charges produces should vary in a manner consistent with chemical intuition and more specifically, that these variation should be correlated in a sensible way with experimental observations. The Mulliken charge was calculated using six different theoretical levels (AM1, PM3, MNDO, HF, DFT, MP2). After that the Mulliken charges were tested for their ability to represent variation in the pKa values of 14 mono – substituted pyridines. In all cases the Mulliken charge at the nitrogen and the two α – carbon atoms were taken as a representative regression parameters. The Mulliken charge at nitrogen atoms calculated by AM1 and HF levels yielded the most successful correlations with pKa. Also using other theoretically calculated independent variable such as the heat of formation, leads to improve the correlation with values of pKa.

In this study homo and hetero trinuclear complexes of cobalt (II), nickel (II) and copper (II) were prepared by the reaction of their salts (chloride and nitrate) with a Schiff base ligand derived from vanillin and malonylhydrazide. Complexes of the general formulae: [M3(VMH4)2X6)], [M2M'(VMH4)2X6], [MM'M"(VMH4)2X6] and K2[M3(VM)2], K2[M2M'(VM)2], K2[MM'M''(VM)2] (where M, M', M" are the dipositive ions of cobalt, nickel and copper, respectively, VMH4, VM are the neutral and tetra basic forms of the ligand and X= Cl, NO3) were isolated from both neutral and basic media, respectively. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by using analytical, physical and spectral methods. The studies revealed the hexadentate nature of the ligand which gave hexacoordinated and tetracoordinated metal complexes with the most probable octahedral and tetrahedral or square planar structures in neutral and basic media, respectively. The stability period and the stability constants of some of these complexes in neutral solution have been studied spectrophotometrically. The compositions of the complexes were determined by the use of Job method. The results indicate the formation of only 1:1 metal: ligand complexes with similar stability constants.

DOI: 10.33899/edusj.1970.58956

In this work, several pieces of CR-39 detector were irradiated by UV radiation in order to study their physical characteristics. A UV spectrometer was utilized to read radiation coming out of the CR-39 detectors., and obtain their optical absorption. It was realized that the optical absorption wave length range was between 190-1110 nm. Near 314-316 nm at the absorption peak, a UV spectrum change was oserved in which there was an energy gap (Eg) variation which was confirmed by the Urbach equation. It was interesting to notice that the indirect inergy gap value was less than that of the direct gap value. Both direct and indirect energy gaps do increase with increasing dose of UV radiation.The number of carbon atoms (N) was calculated depending on direct and indirect energy gaps return to the equation (4).It was also observed that the excitation electron, Urbach energy (Eu), do actually decrease when UV radiation dose is increased.

Samples of the high temperature superconducting system, Bi2Ba2Ca2Cu3O10, were prepared by solid state reaction method with different sintering temperatures (810, 830, 850, 870, 890) Co. X-ray diffraction technique was used to examine the structure of the compound and showed that the sample prepared with sintering temperature at 850 Co exhibits tetragonal phase with the lattice parameters a = b = 5.42 Ao, c = 34.13 Ao. The electrical resistivity measurements exhibited that the sample prepared at 850 Co its critical temperature was Tc=120K and decreases to 87K when prepared at 870Co. However when the same sample prepared at 890 Co it showed semiconducting behavior with two activation energies (8.593 - 3.456)meV. The effect of annealing on critical temperature has been investigated on the sample which was prepared at 850 Co. The best value of Tc was (132)K at the annealing temperature 400 Co, and rises to 140K with increasing the annealing time from 24 hrs to 72hrs and this increase might be caused by the increase of oxygen content or by intergrowths of a large number Cu-O layers in the cell.

This paper proposes a novel algorithm for the automatic classification of iris images using a 2_D (two Dimension) Variation to estimate the fractal dimensions of the iris.
The new technique divided in to three main step. In the first step the segmentation process in iris recognition is used to localize the circular iris and pupil regions, excluding eyelids and eyelashes. The extracted iris region is normalized into a squares block with constant dimensions.
In the second step, the feature extraction techniques are improved and implemented. A new feature extraction technique based on a 2_D Variation to estimate the fractal dimensions is used. Finally The Normalized Correlation is used to classify the iris features. The techniques performed with perfect segmentation on a set of 995 iris images of greyscale eye images from MMU database. The as False Accept Rate (FAR) and False Reject Rate (FRR) and (RR) recognition rate are calculated for this technique. The results of the algorithm proved that. The a 2D (two Dimension) Variation to estimate the fractal dimensions method it is a good feature extraction technique. It gives FAR=(1.02) and FRR= (0.52) and a high recognition rate is 98.45%..

The study deals with the influence of temperatures and the percentage of ethanol in ethanol-water mixtures on the values of ionization constants of some oxime and phenolic acids derived from aromatic and aliphatic carbonyl compounds. These mixtures having ethanol contents in the range (25-100) percent.
Determination of ionization constant values of acids under study at different temperatures facilitates the evaluation of thermodynamic parameters of acids ionization. The last prove that ionization processes of acids are nonspontaneous (+∆G), endothermic (∆+H) and accompanied by an increase of order (∆S = -). The variation of alcoholic – water ratios seen above, facilitates the a claculation of relative ionization constants (Krelative) of acid (2) as a representative compound. The study led to a conclusion of a decrease of ionization constants of acids by an increase of alcoholic contents as properly discussed.

In this research, the algorithm of 2-Dimension variation was achieved, to extract a feature of the numerical number image. Because number recognition is very important subject in practical fields of image processing.
The number will be segmented to its individual components (one image for each digit), Then preprocess will start by truncating all unused area from all the slides using the vertical and horizontal projection.
The applied algorithm to compute the digit weight, can stated as follow:-
- compute the distance geometry using 2-Dimension Variation algorithm which will be adopted as the digit feature.
- Searching for the computed value in the data base (which was already build).
- The weight of the digit will be computed depend upon the digit rank.
- collecting all the weight to get the total weight of digit.
When the algorithm applied on different numbers the result was with very low difference not more than 5 % when using numbers with single font and it rise little bit with numbers of mixed fonts.

DOI: 10.33899/edusj.1970.58930

Voice compression is one of the important subject today specially in field of communication and application so in this paper, speech compression was adopted based on hybrid technique between wavelet and Huffman code. Wavelet in single dimension can reduce the signal size to half of the original in each level, then using Huffman code to store output the file.
Hybrid between the above two techniques give high rate of compression ratio, and closed returned signal from the original one, because of the coding technique from the lossless classification but the idea of sample down was achieved with the wavelet which produce little loss in the retrieved data, while the effected of the wavelet is positive effect due to the reduction of the high frequencies, which effect as noise in most application[specially in speech],in addition to that it give high redundancy in the component of the speech signal [in low-low components].
The practical application of the proposed algorithm give (30%) compression ratio plus stability when the file size growth up.
SNR&MSE show that retrieved speech quality is good.

Digital communications and information security has become one of the key issues to send data, there are two techniques available to achieve this goal: Encryption And concealment of information, the goal of this research is the application of technical system coverage within the audio file and the way is to change the cell bilateral least important (Low Bit Encoding) file that has been chosen here is the file named WAV used as a cover for the transfer of data, using three algorithms for this purpose, followed by a Testing Statistical and so on methods of measuring the minimum square error, in addition to measuring the proportion of noise to the original signal, was to illustrate the results within the practical side of using the MATLAB version of 10, tests showed that the concealment algorithm using the secret key to give the best results
