BASIC

Beginners All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. A programming language that allows a programmer to interact with a program while it is running. BASIC is very simple and was designed for instructional purposes. However, it underlies both the DOS and Windows operating systems.

To estimate the Lewis basicity of the promoted and un-promoted catalysts, temperature programmed (TPD) experiments were conducted by using CO2 as an adsorption gas.
Increase in natural basicity of surface of rich with montmorillonite samples or formation of additional basic sites (O- atoms) by high activation temperature of catalysts were the reasons of growth of MBOH conversion.
From table 2, Adding fluoride (F) to PS will decrees PA (Proton Affinity) following the order m less than p less than o , chloride (Cl) ) will decrees PA following the order m less than o less than p , methyl (CH3) will increase PA following the order o less than m less than p , adding groups as (O-O-Phenyl) will increase PS basicity , (O-CH3-O-Phenyl) will decrease PS basicity and adding groups as (O-(C=O)-O-Phenyl) will decrease PA but less than (O-O-Phenyl) do.
For the basicity and acid neutralization capacity measurements, the set sample was ground by a mortar and pestle, and 0.
The presence of surface basicity (Table 5) suggests that fresh biochars will also have some capacity to retain anions in soil; however, the surface basicity may decrease and eventually disappear with progressive oxidation of biochar (Cheng et al.
Evaluation of the basicity of the slag melt is essential for determining the possibilities of interaction of the component of the slag with each other and, most importantly, with the components of the contacting phases (metallic and gas).
Basicity from unsubstituted and n-alkyl HALS can interact with acidic components of a formulation or metal catalysts present to initiate crosslinking reactions.
One can differentiate the substituent polar or steric properties or the solvent polarity, polarizability, as well as the hydrogen bonding acidity and basicity, responsible for the existence of the specific solvation of the solutes.
A volatile alkali, such as ammonium hydroxide, is added to perms which dissipates during the process to reduce the basicity of the solution.
Similar molecules and ions could have potential applications in areas such as catalysis and the fabrication of magnetic switches; in addition, they are expected to exhibit interesting gas-phase acidity and/or basicity properties.
This ratio, which is the ratio of basic oxide to an acidic oxide, determines the basicity of the glass and because the reaction between glass and liquid is an acid base one, an increase in the basicity of the glass will increase the rate of the setting reaction.
