The Commission charged with the ex- amination of candidates for posts in the army came with the king to the Valley, whereas they could have transacted their business just as well at home.
Besides, there has been challenge for the development of synthetic methods for 1-tetrasubstituted-2, 2, 2-trifluoroethylamines which becomes difficult to access by hydrogenation of reductive amination and imines of ketones.
PEEK can be modified either by the addition of functionalized monomers (prepolymerization) or post-polymerization modifications by chemical processes such as sulphonation, amination and nitration.
This indicates that the aminosilane coupling agent was successfully grafted onto the surface of Si[O.sub.2] during the amination process.
It is commonly produced by amination of pyruvate by the enzyme alanine transaminase, which involves interconversion of alanine and pyruvate, and a-ketoglutarate and glutamate.
Amination of biomaterials used as substratum for cell attachment has already been shown to have positive effect on adhesion, migration, and functions of normal cells [26].
This is due to the joint efforts of the quaternary amination of chitosan and 8-hydroxyquinoline which enhanced the interaction between chitosan and anionic compounds of bacteria.
Ti[O.sub.x]-NRs substrate was amino-modified in the fresh-made amination solution (40 [micro]L of APTES, 0.5 mL of DI water, and 0.5 mL of ethanol) for 20 min firstly.
The glass pieces were then rinsed with a large volume of pure water, blow-dried with argon, and soaked in APTES ((3-aminopropyl)triethoxysilane) solution for surface amination. The surface-aminated glasses were further sonicated in methanol, rinsed with a large volume of pure water, blow-dried with argon, and oven-dried.
