Corrosion has been the greatest problem in oil and gas industry, and many experts have always tried to combat this major problem. This has been given to the corrosion and inspection in oil and gas industry. Corrosion in oil and gas wells is driven by some electrochemical mechanisms, and when the system reaches a temperature below the dew point, the moisture will be converted to liquid and many droplets form on the pipe's wall. The corrosion in pipelines' coatings is one of the main problems in oil and gas industries for which a huge amount of money is spent each year. Coating is the first defense line in front of a corrosive environment in which pipes have been buried. Good function of coating depends on its adhesion to the metal surface. Finally, according to our results in this article, we show that, the chemical compounds inside the coating such as chlorides and sulphides can play an electrolyte role, which accelerates corrosion.

In this work, the effect of the functionalized Ni and Pd transition metals on interaction of the mercaptopyridine (MCP) with the boron nitride nanocage (B12N12) was investigated using the density functional theory (DFT) and TD-DFT method. The selected structures were optimized using the cam-B3LYP/Lanl2DZ level of theory. The adsorption energy and enthalpy values of MCP on the surface of pristine, Ni, and Pd functionalized B12N12 nanocage were negative and all adsorption process were exothermic. The results of the recovery time indicated that the pristine B12N12 nanocage with the lowest recovery time was suitable for making sensitive sensor for MCP molecule and the Ni functionalized B12N12 with the most recovery time that was favorable for making the adsorbent of the MCP molecule. The reduced gradient density (RDG) and quantum theory of atom in molecule (QTAIM) outputs revealed that the interaction of MCP with the Ni functionalized B12N12 were stronger than that of the pristine model. The UV-visible results confirmed that the adsorption of MCP on the surface of the Ni functionalized B12N12 with the most value of λmax was suitable as absorbent in UV area.

First principles calculations were performed to study the neurotransmitters, tricyclic antidepressant drugs and (5,5) carbon nanotube in the gas phase and solution media for comparison purposes. All calculations were performed using DMol3 code in materials studio 5.5. The simulation results revealed that, the nitroxazepine is quite a reactive drug, so that it can act as the electron donating specie in its interacting with carbon nanotube. In addition, the nitroxazepine is the electron acceptor and serotonin and norepinephrine is the electron donor. To explain the interaction of the carbon nanotube, serotonin, and norepinephrine with nitroxazepine, their local reactivity was analyzed through Fukui functions. The results show that the hydrogen bonding between oxygen atoms of the nitroxazepine and OH of the serotonin and norepinephrine has been assigned as the dominant interaction. In order to gain a deeper understanding of the interaction between the nitroxazepine with the carbon nanotube, serotonin and norepinephrine, calculations of binding energies, quantum molecular descriptors, the most important modes of the vibrational frequencies and density of states (DOS) have been carried out.

The aim of present study was to develop a simple, precise, accurate and reproducible spectrophotometric method for simultaneous determination of ramipril and amlodipine besylate by UV-visible spectrophotometer using the first order derivative method. According to our present knowledge, no first order derivative method was reported so far. Thus, in present study it was decided to carry out first order derivative method and it was validated in compliance with ICH (Q2 R1) guideline. Ramipril and amlodipine besylate showed absorbance at the working wavelength of 211.87 nm (zero crossing point of amlodipine besylate) and 254.34 nm (zero crossing point of ramipril) respectively using distilled water as a diluent. Linearity was established over the concentration range of 2-25 μg/mL and 2-50 μg/mL for ramipril and amlodipine besylate with correlation coefficient 0.999 and 0.998 respectively. Accuracy was obtained between 99.91-101.06% and 99.66-100.66% for ramipril and amlodipine besylate respectively. LOD were found to be 0.078 μg/mL and 0.059 μg/mL and LOQ were 0.239 μg/mL and 0.178 μg/mL for ramipril and amlodipine besylate respectively. The results revealed that the developed method is suitable for the routine analysis of determining of ramipril and amlodipine besylate in a tablet dosage form.

The Catharanthus roseus extract was used as a natural reagent to synthesize nanoparticles a brief discussion on the usage of plant extract were also summarized.Copper oxide nanoparticles (NPs) were successfully prepared using a simple way involving the combination reaction between copper nitrate and leaf extract. The synthesis under leaf extract response played an important role and led to the formation of copper oxide NPs of different size and shapes. The catalyst was characterized by XRD, FTIR, UV–Vis–DRS, PL, SEM with EDX and TEM analysis. The crystalline structure and phase identification was examined using XRD analysis, The XRD results revealed formation of pure phase without any post annealing. Formation of the metal oxygen bond of CuO nanoparticles was confirmed by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The surface morphology of the CuO nanoparticles depicted nanorods and the size difference depends upon the method of synthesis. EDX analysis confirmed the phase-purity of the as synthesized nanoparticles. UV-Vis DRS of the as obtained nanorods exhibited the absorbance in the visible region. Photocatalytic activities of the CuO nanoparticles were evaluated based on photodegradation of rose Bengal under UV light irradiation. The results suggested that the nanocatalyst CuO has potential applications as an efficient catalytic material with high efficiency for the photocatalytic degradation of organic pollutants in aqueous solution under UV light irradiation.

This work provides an overview on applicability of 12 principles of green chemistry. Green chemistry is a term that indicates the creation of chemical products and procedures that reduces the use and production of harmful materials. The goals of green chemistry for protecting the environment can be achieved via several main directions. Some of them are bio-catalysis, use of alternative repeatable raw materials (biomass), alternative reaction solution (such as ionic liquids, supercritical fluids, water), alternative reaction circumstances (microwave activation) as well as to new photocatalytic reactions. Moreover, keep natural resources on earth without using harmful materials is the main objective of green chemistry. By changing patterns of consumption and production, steps are being taken to decrease the pollution and harmful waste, which considered being one of the important goals of green chemistry. Also, it was found that, it is so serious to develop alternative technologies that are safer for both human health and the environment to prevent any further damage to human health and the environment such as reducing release of dangerous chemicals to air leading to reduce damage to lungs. In addition, design safer chemical found to be a good opportunity to improve some chemical methods via producing cleaner and cheaper products in industrial processes when harmful chemicals are replacing with biological enzymes. For all the reasons outlined here, in this review, 12 principles of green chemistry are outlined with their applications, where shows how green chemistry reduces the impact of chemical processes on the environment and how their benefit can be achieved. And, also disadvantages of 12 principles are discussed, as well.

This study investigates the uptake of the nickel (II) metal ions from aqueous sources using the xanthan magnetic biocompatible nano-composites. The desired nano-sorbent was first synthesized, analysed, and evaluated by scanning electron microscope (SEM) and Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and (FT-IR), then used as adsorbent for removing the nickel from aqueous solution. Then the effect of different parameters such as contact time, adsorbent amount, pH, initial concentration, and temperature on the adsorption rate was investigated. The equilibrium time for the stirring state was 60 min and the optimum adsorbent value was 0.1 g and the acidity of 4 was the best pH. The highest removal efficiency was obtained at 97.6%. The kinetic studies of nickel removal by the synthesized adsorbent were performed and the results obtained for batch experiments follow the pseudo-quadratic kinetic model with (R2=0.9987). Equilibrium adsorption studies also revealed that, the adsorption process was in better agreement with the Freundlich isotherm (R2=0.9978). The positive Gibbs free energy (15.08 KJ/mole-1) showed that the process was spontaneous. Also the entropy changes was positive (0.03 KJ/mole-1), indicated an increase in entropy during the adsorption process in the system. Therefore, the adsorption process was associated with increasing the disorder.

In this work, stepwise reaction mechanism of the [2+3] cycloaddition reaction among alkyl isocyanides (contains tert-butyl isocyanide, cyclo hexyl isocyanide) with dialkyl acetylenedicarboxylate (contains dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate, diethyl acetylenedicarboxylate and di-tert-butyl acetylenedicarboxylate) at the presence of acetic anhydride was investigated both in the gas phase and in solvent was studied theoretically. The potential energy of all structures participated in the reaction path was evaluated. The geometry of all the structures participated during the reaction path, the rate-determining step, and potential competitive routes during the reaction coordinate were evaluated. Also, dielectric constant effect of the solvent, the effect of substituted alkyl groups on the potential energy surfaces, and the best product configuration were investigated based upon the quantum mechanical calculations. For better understanding of the molecular interaction, the natural bond orbital method (NBO) and AIM analysis were applied. The results indicated that, the first step of the reaction was recognized as rate-determining step and the reaction rate was predicted to be dependent on the concentration of alkyl isocyanides and dialkyl acetylenedicarboxylate. It was also found that, the electron donating of different alkyl groups was not the main factor for the variation in the potential energy surfaces of the reaction; however, the steric factor of the bulky alkyl groups participating in the reaction path was found to be the main factor.
