Vanadium is recognized worldwide as the most abundant metallic constituent in petroleum, and this led to expect of its existing in natural gas that associated with oil as a trace amount in ppb concentration or less. For capturing the trace amount of vanadium in natural gas we used diluted acidic medium as adsorption collection, and using the collection medium as a sample. Graphite furnace atomic absorption spectrometry (GFAAS) is the analytical method that utilized in this study to determine (nano-partical) of vanadium. The pyrolysis and atomization temperature used were 1100ᵒC and 2700ᵒC , respectively. This procedure allows determination of vanadium with a detection limit about 0.44µg/L and characteristic mass of 67 pg, the calibration graph was linear in the range (40-120)µg/L with correlation coefficient of 0.9980, and the relative standard deviation RSD% was (0.83-6.13). the accuracy of this procedure was confirmed by the determination of vanadium in a newly prepared standard solution as unknown concentration. The range of vanadium amount in natural gas supposed to be from 5-10 ng/L .

         Ethyl 2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)acetate (A1)  was synthesized by the reaction of ethylchloroacetate with imidazol, Then refluxed with hydrazine hydrate to obtain 2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)acidhydrazid (A2) . (A2)  was reaction  with various substituted benzyldehyd  to gain 6 novel compounds shiffe bases(A3-8).and 5-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)methyl)3-N-acetyl-2-(aryl)-1,3,4-(2H)-Oxadiazol (A9-12) were synthesized by the reaction of shiffe bases(A3-8)with acetic anhydride . In order to show the antibacterial  activity of prepared compounds are evaluated against four types of common bacteria (psedomonus, Staphylococcus aureus, Eschershia coli, Klebsiella peneuomina). The result of biological study are compared with standered antibiotic (metheprem & Gentamycin) . The structure of the synthesized compounds are confirmed by I.R, 1H-NMR & 13C-NMR spectra and Some chemical physical data.

         The aim of this research is the preparation of Poly (Methylacrylate) by a free radical initiating process for polymerization methyacrylate using benzoyl peroxide as an intiator at (70°C ) and(10%)   ratio of conversion. Conversion of the ester group of the Poly (Methylacrylate) in to Hydroxamicacid was carried out by treatment of (PMA) with hydroxylaminehydrochloride in alkaline medium at (pH=13) using Sodium Hydroxide. The poly hydroxamic acid was identified by (FT-IR) spectroscopy. Sorption Capacity (qe) of the metal ions (Fe3+ ) , (Cu2+ ),( Ni2+) ,( Co2+) ,( Cr3+),( V3+),( Zn2+),(Al3+)and) Pb2+) by using (PHA) was determined . Also the study showed that there was an effect of initial (pH) and temperature on the sorption capacity of the metal ions ,  by poly Hydroxamic acid.
