Investigation into the determination of arsenic by direct current plasma atomic emission spectromete
Improvements have been made on the currently available hydride generator system manufactured by SpectraMetrics Incorporated, because the system was found to be unsatisfactory with respect to the following: 1. the drying agent, anhydrous calcium chloride, 2. the special sample tube, 3. the direction of argon flow through the Buchner funnel when it came to dealing with real sample, that is, with reference only to aqueous extracts of soil samples. Changes that were made on the system included the r
Fimbriae of coprinus cinereus, schizophyllum commune and ustilago violacea = structural aspects and
Surface fibrils (fimbriae) have been observed on fungi from every major group. Fimbriae are thought to be involved in the following cell to cell interactions: conjugation, flocculation and adhesion. Several higher fungi exibit two other types of interactions: hyphal fusion (anastomosis) and clamp connection formation. As a prelude to examining the role of fimbriae in these processes, the fimbriae of two fungi that undergo these fusion events were examined. Electron microscopy studies revealed th
Effects of sample solvent composition and injection volume on chromatographic peak profiles of methy
The effects of sample solvent composition and the injection volume, on the chromatographic peak profiles of two carbamate derivatives, methyl 2-benzimidazolecarbamate (MBC) and 3-butyl-2,4-dioxo[1,2-a]-s-triazinobenzimidazole (STB), were studied using reverse phase high performance liquid chromatograph. The study examined the effects of acetonitrile percentage in the sample solvent from 5 to 50%, effects of methanol percentage from 5 to 50%, effects of pH increase from 4.42 to 9.10, and effect o

An analysis of decoupling procedures in generating thermal Green's functions of O([lambda]â ´) by
The Zubarev equation of motion method has been applied to an anharmonic crystal of O( ,,4). All possible decoupling schemes have been interpreted in order to determine finite temperature expressions for the one phonon Green's function (and self energy) to 0()\4) for a crystal in which every atom is on a site of inversion symmetry. In order to provide a check of these results, the Helmholtz free energy expressions derived from the self energy expressions, have been shown to agree in the high temp

Enantiodivergent chemoenzymatic synthesis of codeine
The present thesis describes our latest results in the chemistry of morphine alkaloids. An enantiodivergent synthesis of codeine utilizing a cis-cyclohexadiene diol derived from microbial whole cell oxidation of ~-bromoethylbenzene,as starting material is discussed. The total synthesis of (+)-codeine in 14 steps featuring a Mitsunobu inversion and two intramolecular Heck cyclizations is presented. Investigation of a regioselective nucleophilic opening of a homochiral vinyl oxirane, which led to

Guide to the Records of the Young Friends of North America, Committee on Conscription, 1968-1969
The Young Friends of North America, whose members were between the ages of 18-30, established a Committee on Conscription in the fall of 1968. The Committee on Conscription facilitated communication among members who were involved with draft resistance. The Committee also collected information from members who have resisted the draft since the 1940's and from those who were imprisoned for draft resistance. This collection contains photocopies of memoranda, minutes, questionnaires, brochures, bro

ANSO 103-01, Introduction to Anthropology, Spring 2002
We enter the world with the marvelous capacity to live any one of a thousand different kinds of lives, as the anthropologist, Geertz, says. Nevertheless once we begin to live that life that is to become ours, we often live it with the amazing conviction that it is the best and possibly only way to live. Those other lives that could possibly have been ours are also lived with equal conviction. Many of those thousand different kinds of lives are lived next door when society sees "race"1, gender, a
ANSO 341-01, Peoples of (Sub-Saharan) Africa, Spring 2002
Section I -- in this section we will try to gain a general understanding of African geography, prehistory, history and culture.Section II -- anthropologists are not only ethnographers, but they are also ethnologists, posing and attempting to answer theoretical questions. In this section we will explore some of the classical theoretical questions that have been posed (primarily by British and French anthropologists) in reference to African historical and ethnographic data.,This syllabus was submi
ANSO 331-01, Prejudice and the Human Condition, Spring 2001
Course Statement This is not a course in the sociology of racial or ethnic prejudice - it is a seminar that examines the implications of social and ontological foregrounding for interpretive experience, self understanding and interaction. We will orient our study within the phenomenological tradition and follow the development of Continental hermeneutics through the work of Gadamer. Our goal is to understand the implications of the prejudiced condition of existence for interpersonal interaction

This course is intended to be an introduction to the methods and theories of anthropological archaeology. This course will also explore current explanations and available data on two classic problem foci of archaeology: the origins of plant and animal domestication and settled life in the Old and the New World, and the origins of early states and urban centers in such areas of the world as Egypt, Mesopotamia, Mesoamerica and South America.,This syllabus was submitted to the Rhodes College Office
ANSO 300-02, Cultural Motifs: Aging and the Human Condition, Fall 1998
This seminar examines the phenomenon of aging in order to demystify its various dimensions. Our objective is to clear a rare discursive space in which to study and discuss topics most of us are encouraged not to talk about. We will clear such a space nonetheless, and we will examine the good, the bad and the ugly dimensions of aging in order to locate the significance of aging for our personal and collective life journeys.,This syllabus was submitted to the Office of Academic Affairs by the cour
