In this study, a locally collected bentonite and activated carbon (AC) synthesized from spent lubricant oils by chemical treatment were used as new non conventional and low cost adsorbents for the copper (Cu+2) ions adsorption in a batch mode at various initial concentrations and different temperatures. Systematic studies on Cu+2 ions adsorption equilibrium and kinetics by both adsorbents were carried out. The investigation were performed at different initial concentrations of Cu+2 ions (10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60 mg/L), contact time (10-90 min), and temperatures (25-55 °C).
Depending on the results of temperature effect, thermodynamic parameters (ΔG°, ΔH and ΔS°) were estimated from two sources. First; from the adsorption distribution constant (Kd) which is represented by the ratio between the adsorbed and remained Cu+2 ions in solution at equilibrium and second, from Freundlich isotherm constant (Kf). Comparable results are obtained.
Freundlich and Langmuir isotherm models were applied to the adsorption data of the studied systems. The results obtained indicated that, the clay adsorbs Cu+2 ions more intense than AC, with higher maximum adsorption capacity. Langmuir isotherm is better fitted to the adsorption data of the study system than Freundlich isotherm.
The effect of contact time data of Cu+2 ions adsorption onto clay, conducted at various initial concentrations were applied to pseudo first and second order kinetic models. The rate of adsorption was found to conform to pseudo second order kinetic with good correlation (R2>0.99) and consistent values of the experimental (qe(exp)) and calculated (qe(cal)) adsorption capacities. The initial rate of adsorption was found to increase with initial concentration, where as the over all rate constant exhibited opposite variation. The employed adsorbents might be successfully used for the removal of other heavy metal ions from industrial wastewater.

A seriers of 1, 3, 4-oxadiazol-2-thion were synthesized by the reaction of naproxen (or acetyl) amino acid hydrazides (glycine, valine, leucine, isoleucine and tyrosine) with carbon disulphide in alkaline medium. The reaction of naproxen (or acetyl) amino acid hydrazides were treated with p-chloro benzaldehyde to give hydrazone, the hydrazones were then cyclized with lead dioxide to give 1, 3, 4-oxadiazol-2-aryl. Naproxen amino acid esters were treated with ammonia gas to give naproxen amino acid amids. The synthesized compounds were characterized by physical and spectral analysis.

In the family of heterocyclic compounds, nitrogen containing heterocycles with an oxygen atom are considered to be an important class of compounds in medicinal chemistry because of their interesting diversified biological application. The oxadiazole derivatives have been reported to have various biological activites including anti-microbal (1-3), anticancer (4, 5), anti inflammatory (6), anti-infective (7), and anti HIV (8). Substituted oxadiazole moiety has also been found to have other important activites such as antiviral (9), antifungal (10-12), antimycobacterial (13), anticouvulsant (14), antitumor (15), antimarlarial (16), and anti-hepatitis B viral activities (17). Substituted 1, 3, 4- oxadiazoles exhibit antibacterial (18-19), pesticidal (20) and analgesic activities (21-22). This paper describes the synthesis of new heterocyclic systems containing 1, 3, 4- oxadiazoles linked with naproxen.

First group was used as control, second to fifth groups were orally treated with walnut leaves coldextract, and the sixth to ninth groups were treated separately with warm extract concentration 60, 75, 90 and 120 mg/kg body weight for the two walnut extracts respectively. Rats were fed with hyperlipidemicdiet, which contains 1% cholesterol and 0.5% hydrogen peroxide in drinking water for 15 days experimental period;at room temperature around 25°C in dark/light cycle was 12/12 hours daily.
Blood samples were collected from the eye retro-ocular vein using heparinized PCV tubeat the beginning and last days of experiment. Plasma was separated and used for the determinations of blood total lipid (TL), total cholesterol (TC), high density lipoprotein (HDL-c), and liver total cholesterol. Rat's nutritional status (increased body mass-growth and food intake weights) was estimated too. Analysis of variance and Duncan test showed that, the cold and warm extracts of walnut leaves caused rat's nutritional status improvement and hypolipidemic effect in plasma TL, TC, VLDL-c &LDL-c and decreased atherogenicindices;in addition they increased the HDL-c and lowering liver total cholesterol. The walnut leaves cold extract concentration 75mg/kg body weight considered to be more efficient than other tested concentrations of cold and warm extracts. Therefore, this concentration of cold walnut extract was suggested as hypolipidemic matter with specific concentration.

In this research the absorbed dose by the thyroid gland of radioiodine 131I during treatment of the thyroid cancer after total or partial remove of the thyroid gland by operation, the radioiodine is concentrated in the un removed parts of the gland tissue depending on stage and type of disease. The thermoluminescence dosimeters TLDs are used for measuring the absorbed dose for its good efficiency in detecting alpha and gamma rays. High radiation doses was found in un removed regions, and low doses in the partial removed regions, in case of the total remove of the gland readings were lower over all the gland. Moreover much lower dose was found after second treatment by radioiodine, these measurements were welcomed by doctors of radiotherapy. Also by measuring the transmitted gamma rays from the frontal and dorsal parts of the neck it is found that the transmitted rays from the frontal part is about more than that from the dorsal part which indicate possible absorption and scattering by tissues and vertebral and also by the spinal cord, this later measurement help to consider the low possible risk of treatment by radioiodine.

This research aime to build geographyic data base with morphometric variables for 26 watersheds in northern sinjar by using data resoncces such as (SRTM) Digital elevation models programs that were used (Arc Gis 9.3 – Arc hydro 1.3 –Spatial Analyst–). Data base was used to extract measurement of 25 morphometric object that has shape characteristics or drainage or topography. Analysis results showed that most of the watersheds were almost rectangular (0.42) with a triangular formation) 0.15). First and second order in drainage were the most and longest (1421.37- 303.16) KM, (1812 -417) valley. Watersheds gave small value in longitudinal and numerical drainage density, and it was (1.81) KM (1.55) vallies, with rough texture severe topography (20.35(.
