Controlled oxidation is increasingly being practiced using solid peroxides, pH
modifiers, and catalysts that promote the generation of free radicals. This new
approach moderates the rate of dissolution and peroxide generation, which in turn
controls that rate of reaction between peroxide and the petroleum contaminants.
The use of slurried peroxides creates the opportunity to release oxidants and
oxygen over a longer period, which can promote subsequent aerobic remediation.
Adequate aqueous solubility of new chemical entities (NCEs) is one of the key
properties required for successful pharmaceutical formulation development.
Solubility is generally defi ned as the concentration of the compound in a solution
which is in contact with an excess amount of the solid compound when the concentration
and the solid form do not change over time (Sugano et al. 2007 ) .
This book is about the evolution of self-help movement organizations in
the United States. The dramatic rise and ubiquity of self-help during the
mid- to late twentieth century positions it high among other healthcare
institutions such as drug rehabilitation, the health maintenance organization
(HMO), and patient rights as an integral part of the landscape marking
our daily lives.
