1.Nitration of Phenolic Compounds with Magnesium nitrate and acetic acid

By Sutapa Ray

Pages : 1-2

A mixture of calcium nitrate and acetic acid, as well as a mixture of magnesium nitrate and alumina sulfuric acid, are reported to be used as nitrating agent. Inferring from these ideas, a mixture of magnesium nitrate and acetic acid (glacial or about 80% aqueous) is introduced for the first time as a fairly efficient nitrating agent for phenolic compounds successfully.

2.Supramolecular gels: characterization and applications

By Chhabi Garai

Pages : 3-8

Over the last decade the researchers have growing interest towards supramolecular gels not only to know about self assembly process but also for their potential applications in diversified areas. Since gels are sensitive towards several external stimuli like heat, light, pH of medium etc., incorporation of suitable functional groups to these gelators make them fruitful for the use in different fields. In this manuscript, supramolecular gels, their characterization processes such as optical mic
