BAT for electrochemical processing of stainless steels installation

LOCHYŃSKI P., KUCZAJ A., SZCZYGIEŁ B. Please cite as: CHEMIK 2012, 66, 3, 235-240 Chemical enterprises on the area of the European Union are obliged to obtain the Integrated Permit for installations for surface metals processing, if total volume of processing tanks exceeds 30 m3. From many aspects the fulfilment of requirements in the scope of sewage influencing plays a significant role. Gradually contamination of acid baths, used for pickling and electropolishing, is caused by dissolution of stainless steel and dissolution of copper tickets...

Ammonium nitrate ? a treat of accidental explosion and terrorist attack

Ammonium nitrate ? a treat of accidental explosion and terrorist attack.

BUCZKOWSKI D. Please cite as: CHEMIK 2012, 66, 3, 227-234 This paper presents threats related to possible accidental explosions of ammonium nitrate and the application of ammonium nitrate-based explosives to launch terrorist attacks. The results of tests on the behaviour of mixtures of ammonium nitrate and flammable materials during heating and their detonation properties are described in this paper. The conducted tests indicate that ammonium nitrate contaminated with flammable materials can lead...

Application of nanomaterials in medical sciences

MORITZ M., GESZKE-MORITZ M. Please cite as: CHEMIK 2012, 66, 3, 219-226 Nanomaterials are the objects which at least one dimension are smaller than 100 nm. Small size of these structures, high surface-tovolume ratio and possibility of modification give them unique physical and chemical properties. The ability of cell and tissue targeting, drug delivery and emission of fluorescence make nanomaterials applicable in various fields such as medicine and others. Keywords: nanomaterials, bio-imaging, anticancer therapy, diagnostics, tissue regeneration, drug delivery Read more: Read more

Functionalized hybrid materials-from concept, through laboratory to business

Functionalized hybrid materials-from concept, through laboratory to business. SCHROEDER G., ŁĘSKA B., KURCZEWSKA J. Please cite as: CHEMIK 2012, 66, 3, 196-205 Functionalized materials, based on molecular receptors, determine new direction of dynamic development in chemistry. The knowledge about interactions between molecules, the control of efficient synthesis methods and the ability of properties prediction of materials carrying molecular receptors, generate real foundation for the fulfillment of rojects started from the concept, through the research studies, to commercial application. The paper describes the way from the...

Unusual survival strategies of organisms. Do they have a technical meaning?

Unusual survival strategies of organisms. Do they have a technical meaning? KAFARSKI P. Please cite as: CHEMIK 2012, 66, 3, 192-193 The author draws attention to the ecosystem as a complex and dynamic community of plant and animal species in the physical environment in which they live. It shows that nature can be a source of research ideas, and beneficial to observe the ways developed by specific organisms and understand their molecular mechanisms may be the inspiration for the design of devices profitable...
