Title: 4-(3-Methoxyphenyl)-2,6-dimethylcyclohex-3-enecarboxylic acid

Abstract

The racemic title compound, C{sub 16}H{sub 20}O{sub 3}, was synthesized to study the hydrogen-bonding interaction of the two enantiomers in the solid state. In the crystal structure, R and S pairs of the racemate are linked by pairs of intermolecular O-H...O hydrogen bonds, producing centrosymmetric R{sub 2}{sup 2}(8) rings.

  • Thorium (IV) was separated from several anions and cations commonly associated with it in environmental samples by liquid-liquid extraction with N-p-methoxyphenyl 1-2-furyl-acrylohydroxamic acid (MFHA) into chloroform at pH 3.6 - 5.5. The metal was then back-extracted into aqueous media containing 1.8 - 2.2 M HCl and determined spectrophotometrically at 500 nm (epsilon = 3.9 x 10/sup 4/ 1 mol/sup -1/ cm/sup -1/) with 4-(2-pyridylazo) resorcinol (PAR). The method was successfully applied to the analysis of thorium in coal fly ash, monazite, uranium-thorium ore, animal tissue, plant tissue, and natural waters. MFHA and PAR were chosen from thirteen hydroxamic acids andmore » nine pyridylazo reagents, as the reagent combination that provided the maximum selectivity and sensitivity.« less
  • A method is presented for the highly sensitive, selective, and rapid determination of vanadium (V) at sub-microgram levels in rocks, animal tissues, plant tissues and natural waters. The method is based on the selective extraction of vanadium (V) from strongly acidic (3-8 M hydrochloric acid) and medium with solution of N-p-methoxyphenyl-2-furylacrylohydroxamic acid (MFHA) in chloroform. The reddish-violet extract (molar absorbance 8.6 x 10/sup 3/ 1 mole/sup -1/ cm/sup -1/ at lambda max 545 nm) is then equilibrated with 3-(o-carboxyphenyl)-1-phenyltriazine-N-oxide (CPPTNO) at pH approx. 1.5. The resulting ternary complex has enhanced color (molar absorbance 1.4 x 10/sup 4/ 1 mole/sup -1/more » cm/sup -1/ at lambda max 450 nm). The ternary system obeys Beer's Law at 450 nm over the range of 0-18 ..mu.. g/ml of vanadium. The extraction system achieves 20-fold enrichment of vanadium and enables the determination of the metal down to parts per billion (ng 1/sup -1/) levels. The method tolerates the presence of a large number of anions and cations which are normally present with vanadium in rocks, plant tissues, animal tissues and natural waters. The applicability of the method was tested by the analysis of vanadium in these matrices. MFHA was selected from nine hydroxamic acids as it provided maximum sensitivity and selectivity.« less
  • The paper briefly reviews the status of titanium as an environmental pollutant and presents a new method suitable for the microdetermination of the metals in plants, animal tissues and waters. The method is based on extractive separation of titanium as its chelate with N-p-methoxyphenyl-2-furylacrylohydroxamic acid (MFHA) in chloroform or isoamyl alcohol and subsequent spectrophotometric or atomic absorption spectrometric determination. MFHA was chosen from nine new hydroxamic acids as detailed in the paper. The overall sensitivity of the spectrophotometric method with chloroform as extracting solvent is better than 1 ppb (0.001 ppm). For atomic absorption spectrometric determination isoamyl alcohol is usedmore » as extracting solvent and a sensitivity of 0.2 ppm, which is ten times better than attained earlier, is achieved. There was excellent agreement between the results obtained by the two different instrumental methods.« less
  • A new series of reagents, N-phenyl-2-furylacrylohydroxamic acid and its eight analogues, together with eight pyridylazo reagents, were explored for the selective extraction and sensitive spectrophotometric determination of bismuth (III) in standard alloys and environmental matrices. Bismuth was first extracted with a hydroxamic acid into chloroform and a pyridylazo reagent was added to the extract to form an intensely colored ternary complex for spectrophotometric analysis. The combination of N-p-methoxyphenyl-2-furylacrylohydroxamic acid (MFHA) and 5-iodo-5-(dimethylamino)-2-(2-pyridylazo) phenol (IDEPAP) provided the maximum selectivity and sensitivity (epsilon = 6.5 x 10/sup 4/ 1 mol/sup -1/ cm/sup -1/ at 590 nm). The enrichment attained through solvent extractionmore » together with the intense color of the ternary complex enabled analysis of bismuth at levels of 1ppb (0.001 ppm) and lower.« less
