Data underpinning \"N-Cyanation of Secondary Amines using Trichloroacetonitrile\"

, Ling KB &
A one-pot N-cyanation of secondary amines has been developed using trichloroacetonitrile as an inexpensive cyano source. A diverse range of cyclic and acyclic secondary amines can be readily transformed into the corresponding cyanamides in good isolated yields, with the method successfully utilised in the final synthetic step of a biologically-active rolipram-derived cyanamide. This approach exhibits distinct selectivity when compared to the use of highly toxic cyanogen bromide. Herein we include all underpinning data for this...

Measurement of oxygen extraction fraction (OEF): an optimised BOLD signal model for use with hypercapnic and hyperoxic calibration

A Merola, RG Wise & MA Germuska
Several techniques have been proposed to estimate relative changes in cerebral metabolic rate of oxygen consumption (CMRO2) by exploiting combined BOLD fMRI and cerebral blood flow data in conjunction with hypercapnic or hyperoxic respiratory challenges. More recently, methods based on respiratory challenges that include both hypercapnia and hyperoxia have been developed to assess absolute CMRO2, an important parameter for understanding brain energetics. The aim of this project is to empirically optimise a previously presented “original...

Combining the Advantages of Powder X-ray Diffraction and NMR Crystallography in Structure Determination of the Pharmaceutical Material Cimetidine Hydrochloride

AE Watts, K Maruyoshi, CE Hughes, SP Brown & KDM Harris
The crystal structure of the anhydrous phase of cimetidine hydrochloride was determined directly from powder X-ray diffraction data. The material was prepared bydehydration of the readily obtained monohydrate form of cimetidine hydrochloride, the only form for which a crystal structure has previously been reported. As such, solid-state dehydration processes typically yield the product phase as a microcrystalline powder, and structure determination was carried out directly from powder X-ray diffraction data, using the direct-space genetic algorithm...

Integrated III-V Haemocytometer: SU-8 surface treatment and analysis

A Sobiesierski, R Thomas, DJ Morgan, PM Smowton & A Moskalenko
SU-8 photoresist is used as a microfluidic structuring material. However the native SU-8 surface is too hydrophobic to enable capillary flow. The project that this dataset relates to has been the development of a two stage surface treatment that firstly renders the SU-8 surface hydrophilic and secondly stabilises the surface so that it remains hydrophilic for the longterm (in excess of three months). Contact angles images are taken using a goniometer and digital camera and...

State estimation of medium voltage distribution networks using smart meter measurements

Distributed generation and low carbon loads are already leading to some restrictions in the operation of distribution networks and higher penetrations of e.g. PV generation, heat pumps and electric vehicles will exacerbate such problems. In order to manage the distribution network effectively in this new situation, increased real-time monitoring and control will become necessary. In the future, distribution network operators will have smart meter measurements available to them to facilitate safe and cost-effective operation of...

Data underpinning \"Reduction of Folate by Dihydrofolate Reductase from Thermotoga maritima\"

, , , &
We have shown that DHFR from the hyperthermophilic bacterium Thermotoga maritima is able to catalyse reduction of folate to tetrahydrofolate with a similar efficiency to reduction of dihydrofolate under saturating conditions. NMR and mass spectrometry experiments showed no evidence for production of free dihydrofolate during either the EcDHFR- or TmDHFR-catalysed reductions of folate, suggesting that both enzymes perform the two reduction steps without release of the partially reduced substrate. Herein we include underpinning liquid chromatography...

Data supporting results concerning colourings for the edge dynamic graph colouring problem with and without future adjacency information.

Hardy B, Lewis R &
The graph colouring problem (GCP) is a well-studied combinatorial optimisation problem that is known to be NP-hard. Most algorithms for solving the GCP do not consider the possibility of a graph changing over time. In our research, we consider a dynamic version of the graph colouring problem in which the edge set is allowed to change. By considering a dynamic graph as a series of static graphs, our approach takes a feasible colouring for the...

Lean methane flame stability in a premixed generic swirl burner: isothermal flow and atmospheric combustion characterization

, , Bowen PJ, , Giles AP & Morris SM
Gas turbine combustors operating in lean premixed mode are known to be susceptible to flame blowoff due to competing influences of increasing chemical timescales and decreasing flow time scales under these conditions. In this study, combustion stability and the onset of flame blowoff in particular, are characterized in a new swirl burner operated with fully premixed methane (CH4) and air at thermal power of 55 kW, atmospheric combustor inlet pressure, and ambient (~290 K) combustor...

H2 production by the photocatalytic reforming of cellulose and raw biomass using Ni, Pd, Pt and Au on titania

, Jones WV, &
A method has been developed for sustainable hydrogen production using sunlight and biomass. It is shown that cellulose can be photoreformed to produce hydrogen, even in solid form, by use of metal-loaded titania photocatalysts. The experiments performed verified that the process is enabled by initial hydrolysis via glucose, which itself is shown to be efficiently converted to produce hydrogen by photocatalysis. Importantly, it is shown that not only precious metals such as Pt, Pd and...

Learning to Rank Retargeted Images

Chen Y, Liu Y & Lai Y
Image retargeting techniques that adjust images into different sizes have attracted much attention recently. Objective quality assessment (OQA) of image retargeting results is often desired to automatically select the best results. Existing OQA methods output an absolute score for each retargeted image and use these scores to compare different results. Observing that it is challenging even for human subjects to give consistent scores for retargeting results of different source images, in this paper we propose...

Data for \"Deoxycyanamidation of Alcohols with N-Cyano-N-Phenyl-p-Methylbenzenesulfonamide (NCTS)\"

, , , , Ling KB, &
The first one-pot deoxycyanamidation of alcohols has been developed using N-cyano-N-phenyl-p- methylbenzenesulfonamide (NCTS) as both a sulfonyl transfer reagent and a cyanamide source, accessing a diverse range of ter- tiary cyanamides in excellent isolated yields. This approach exploits the under developed desulfonylative (N-S bond cleavage) reac- tivity pathway of NCTS, which is more commonly employed for electrophilic C- and N-cyanation processes. Analysis of reaction products from this methodology resulted in the following data: 1H, 19F...
