    • "In contrast to the oximes, little attention has been paid to the conversion of semicarbazones to their parent carbonyl compounds and the number of effective methods for this reaction remains quite limited. However, most of the reported procedures used for this purpose require the use of solid supports or other auxiliaries, solvents for the extraction from solid supports, high temperature, long reaction time, expensive and not readily available reagents, and tedious work-up procedures [21] [22] [23] [24] [25] [26] [27] [28] [29] [30] [31] [32] [33]. Consequently, there is a demand for the development of protocols using readily available reagents which operate under extremely mild reaction conditions. "

    ABSTRACT: The γcmc values of CTAB-SDS decrease from 63.67 mN/m at 10‡C to 36.38 mN/m at 90‡C, slightly lower than those of either CTAB or SDS. Correspondingly, the CMC of CTAB-SDS decreases almost by half. The increase of surface activity of CTAB-SDS can be attributed to the relatively weak electrostatic interaction at high temperature, which is supported by the increase of solubility of CTAB-SDS with rise in temperature. Catalytic effect on oxidation of toluene derivatives with potassium permanganate follows the order CTAB-SDS > SDS > CTAB. This is not caused by the dissociative effect of CTAB-SDS with low surface activity at low temperature, as seen from the fact that almost all oxidative products can be retrieved for different toluene derivatives and surfactants by mimicking the conditions of reaction. In the emulsifications of toluene derivatives at 90‡C, the time that turbid water layers of surfactant solutions take to become clear is the same as that of the catalytic effect on oxidation of toluene derivatives. Thus, it can be inferred that surfactants can improve the oxidation yields of toluene derivatives by increasing the contact between two reacting phases.

    ABSTRACT: Pure, defect-free MEL type zeolites was synthesized by using 1-ethyl-6-azonia-spiro-[5,5]-undecane (EASU) as a structure directing agent. The absence of intergrowth with MFI-type structure, which usually occurs when tetrabutylammonium (TBA) is used as a SDA, was confirmed by the observation of the weak and sharp (110) reflection in the XRD pattern of the calcined pure silica sample, as well as by the Rietveld refinement of the synchrotron powder diffraction pattern. Evidences derived from a molecular modeling study supported the high specificity of EASU towards the crystallization of defect-free MEL.
