Electrophoretic transfer of proteins from polyacrylamide gels to nitrocellulose sheets: procedure and some applications.
Since reliable means of stabilizing the nitrocellulose propellants had not yet been developed, these powders were still in danger of decomposition and, thus, instability.
For a terrorist, nitrocellulose has some attractive chemical properties- it is considered to be stable, but when ignited it burns very quickly and at high temperature; and it is nearly six times more explosive than gunpowder.
American intelligence officials have reportedly received several indications from what are described as credible independent sources that al-Qaida is attempting to create nitrocellulose to make explosive devices.
Nitrocellulose, or "guncotton" as it was once known, was produced by impregnating cotton fibers or wood pulp with nitric and sulfuric acid.
It was found that nitrocellulose could be lysed with methanol or dimethylsulfoxide; however, Yoyo-1 fluorescence was diminished significantly in these solvents.
The report includes nitrocellulose description, covers its application areas and related patterns.
Growing demand for nitrocellulose, coupled with wood pulp production issues and harvest disappointments with cotton linters, have created a difficult situation in 2010 that is not expected to improve in 2011.
Researchers, however, have developed new pyrotechnic formulas that replace perchlorate with nitrogen-rich materials or nitrocellulose that burn cleaner and produce less smoke, according to an article in ACS's weekly newsmagazine, Chemical and Engineering News (C and EN).
The fire, in an open area, involved drums full of the highly flammable substance nitrocellulose, which is used in ink and coatings.
The complex stores up to 15,000 drums of a flammable chemical, nitrocellulose - a volatile substance used to make paints and varnish.
The mAbs were individually deposited on the nitrocellulose membrane and also coupled to far-red fluorescent particles.
