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...

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...

Large eddy simulations of open channel flow and flow over a wall-mounted cube

M Cevheri, R McSherry & T Stoesser
The data are from Large Eddy Simulations of turbulent fluid flow in two different flow configurations.

The two flow configurations are: 1) Open channel flow at friction Reynolds number 590; 2) Spatially-periodic flow over a wall-mounted cube at bulk Reynolds number 13000. Simulations were performed on fine, coarse and locally-refined grids. Vertical (i.e. wall-normal)...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Gear tooth root fatigue test monitoring with continuous acoustic emission

, Clarke A, &
A test rig is used to load an individual gear tooth in static bending fatigue. The two gears are meshed together, with the lower (fully restrained, rotation prevented) gear attached to a fixed shaft whilst the upper (free) gear is mounted on a shaft held in bearings. A torque is applied to this shaft using a compression testing machine via a loading arm. Acoustic Emission signals were collected by a Pancom P15 sensor (50 –...

Abdelaziz Cadi-Essadek, Alberto Roldan, Xavier Aparicio-Anglès & Nora H De Leeuw
To recycle CO2 into sustainable fuel and chemicals, co-electrolysis of CO2 and H2O can be achieved in solid oxide electrolysis cells, where the molecules are supplied to the Ni/YSZ electrode (YSZ = yttria-stabilized zirconia). We have investigated the interaction of a CO2 molecule with the clean YSZ(111) surface and with Nin/YSZ(111) (n =1, 4-7, 10, 20) interfaces, using spin polarized density functional theory (DFT) and long-range dispersion correction. In this work, we show that, although...
