Related to hydroxylamine: Semicarbazide


1. a partially oxidized derivative of ammonia; reacts with carbonyl groups to produce oximes; forms acid salts, for example, hydroxylamine hydrochloride. It is a chemical mutagen that causes deamination of cytosine residues in DNA.
2. Any compound containing RNH-OH.

3 g of these macro porous resin beads were further reacted with a 100 mL solution containing 4 g hydroxylamine hydrochloride solution in 1:1 (V/V) methanol-water, at near neutral pH condition to prepare the amidoximated PAN-DVB-EGDMA beads.
Twenty-five milliliters of hydroxylamine hydrochloride solution (10 wt%) was added under continuous stirring.
Then, the nitro group gaining four electrons is reduced to the hydroxylamine on the electrode.
Briefly, under slowly stirring within an ice bath (~4[degrees]C) to 12.5 mL of HEPES 50 [micro]L of AuNSs (16 or 18 nm) was added, as well as 30, 60, or 120 [micro]L of hydroxylamine [0.1 M], and finally the dropwise addition of gold salt solution with rate of 0.375 mL/min to a final concentration of 0.07 or 0.13 mM.
All the chemicals are of reagent grade and have been used without further purification: hydroxylamine hydrochloride N[H.sub.2]OH x HCl, tetraethylrhodamine hydrochloride (rhodamine 6G), mercaptoacetic acid (MAA), N-(3-dimethylaminopropyl)-N-ethylcarbodiimide (EDC), polyvinylpyrrolidone [([C.sub.6][H.sub.9]NO).sub.n] with average molecular weight 10000 (PVP10000), and polyvinylpyrrolidone with average molecular weight 29000 (PVP29000) are supplied by Sigma-Aldrich.
Intensities of oxidized cyclic hydroxylamine 1-hydroxy-3-carboxy-2,2,5,5-tetramethylpyrrolidine hydrochloride CPH (3-CP, Noxygen, Germany) signals were recorded at 3359 [+ or -] 200 G and quantified by single integrating the low field peak of the 3-CP signal, as previously described [54].
As shown in Figure 1, in AOB, the membrane-associated AMO catalyzes the aerobic oxidation of N[H.sub.3] to hydroxylamine (N[H.sub.2]OH) which is subsequently oxidized to N[O.sub.2.sup.-] by the periplasmic hydroxylamine oxidoreductase (HAO) [12].
Nuclear isotope separations depend on careful control of redox chemistry, using reactive species such as hydroxylamine nitrate, HAN, to change the oxidation state of actinides dissolved in aqueous solution.
Additive E with hydroxylamine, on the other hand, has a rather positive effect on both early and final strengths of the cement.
may use nitrite and reduce it to ammonium, or use intermediate stages such as hydroxylamine; Sphingomonas sp.
