Finally, the mixture was measured by absorbance at 562 nm, and the hydroxyl radical-scavenging activity (%) was calculated by following equation:
The results were illustrated in Figure 3(a) and, as can be seen from it, the absorbance signal of Sb (III) increased with the BPHA concentration from 6x[10.sup.-5] to 8x[10.sup.-5] M and remained constant when the concentration of BPHA was above 8x[10.sup.-5] M.
For dye N719, the absorbance spectra on 10 [micro]m Ti[O.sub.2] photoelectrodes in Figure 3(b) are slightly higher than those of dye Z907 where their quantum efficiency spectra in Figure 3(c) are comparable.
Maximum absorbance was observed at 75 mM; above which, the absorbance was decreased as shown in Figure 3(c).
As shown in Figure 7, the highest contrast of a tone image can be obtained with the use of paper A (with the lowest absorbance among the studied types of papers) and at the concentration of carbon nanoparticles in the ink of 25 mg/ mL.
Hydrogen peroxide scavenging activity = (1 - absorbance of sample / absorbance of control) x 100
luteus showed almost 100% absorbance capacity for Cr(IV) for all metal concentrations after 24 h of incubation but the absorbance ability was decreased gradually along with increase in incubation after each 24 h and finally the capacity decreased much after 96 h (Fig.
UV spectrophotometer (Genesys 10 UV, Thermo Electron Corporation) was used to validate the max/peak absorbance region obtained from fiber optic microchannel in order to compare and justify the experimental results.
Standard Reference Material (SRM) 2082 is designed to validate the pathlength for reduced-pathlength spectrophotometers and cuvettes based on the absorbance values, and data are provided to correct for differences in the temperature of the measurements and spectral bandwidth of the spectrophotometer.
where [A.sub.sample] is defined as the absorbance of the sample (sample + DPPH methanol solution), [A.sub.blank] is the absorbance of the reagent blank (sample without DPPH methanol solution), and [A.sub.control] is the absorbance of the control (DPPH methanol solution without sample).
