Correlation of Excess Volume of Oil Stocks

Binary mixtures of three, selected Iraqi crude oils had been subjected to density measurements at temperatures 15, 25, 30C and precise data had been acquired on the volumetric behavior of these systems. The results are reported in terms of equations for excess specific volumes of the mixtures.


Amino Acids as Corrosion Inhibitors for Carbon Steel in Saline Solution

   The present research involves potentiostatic investigation of the corrosion behavior of carbon steel alloy in saline (3.5% NaCl) solution.The general pattern and the experimental techniques used could be
classified into three different aspects as follows:
1. The corrosion behavior of carbon steel specimen in saline solution (blank) and in the presence of inhibitors (Val, Ser, Trp and Lys) at pH (2 and 11) with various temperatures ranging between (293313)K from the polarization curves over a range of potentials (700to-300)volt.


New photostabilizers for poly(vinyl chloride) based on some metal comlexes of 2-(6- methoxynaphthalen-2-yl) propanoate

The preparation of Bis[2-(6-methoxynaphthalen-2-yl)propanoate] chelate complexes with nickel(II), copper(II), zinc(II), cadmium(II) and tin(II)  were described in this thesis.Infrared, ultraviolet–visible, spectrophotometric techniques, magnetic susceptibility, atomic absorption, conductivity measurements and melting point were used to characterize the free ligand and the above chelate complexes. All these
