The Emigrant Pass volcanics (EPV) are a 38.3 to 36.4 Ma calc-alkaline volcanic center that erupted andesite and dacite, and a late series of felsic dikes along the south flank of the Carlin gold district in north-central Nevada. The EPV includes dacite and rhyolite porphyry dikes indistinguishable from porphyry dikes...
Independent systems theory has been used to interpret the
circular dichroism (CD) spectra in the vacuum uv of three cyclic
dimers of amino acids. First, the theory for rotational strengths is
developed in terms of degenerate and nondegenerate group functions.
All terms to first order in perturbation theory are kept....
A sophisticated computer program is developed to analyze flow linear
dichroism data on nucleic acids for individual base inclinations. Measured
absorption and linear dichroism data for synthetic AT and GC polymers and
natural DNAs are analyzed. The reliability of the program is tested on data for
the synthetic polymers, and...
The association of hyaluronic acid (HA) into a double stranded
structure has been investigated by circular dichroism (CD)
spectroscopy into the vacuum ultraviolet region. The CD of HA changes
dramatically, monitoring a cooperative transition as the dielectric
constant of an aqueous solution is reduced by adding organic solvents.
Vacuum ultraviolet absorption spectra of 13 model sugar compounds
were measured in the energy range of 50 to 80 kK. The model
sugars included three simple alcohols, four simple ethers, four cyclic
alcohol-ether compounds, and two dioxanes. All spectra show
transition bands in the energy region 50 to 65 kK....
