The aim of this book is to provide an understanding of how to
analyse and assess the performance of a company from the information
provided about it.
Financial analysis is as much an art as it is a science. Combine any
two figures from an annual report and a ratio is produced; the real skill
is in deciding which figures to use, where to find them and how to judge
Hydrogen sulfide (H2S) is a colorless gas with the smell of putrid eggs; it can exist in both nonionic and ionic forms in aqueous solution. The ratio of the nonionic form to the total ionized one is influenced by concentration of hydrogen ion in the solution. Under acidic conditions, H2S does not ionized and evaporated from water; under alkaline conditions it is easily ionized and retained in the solution.
Determination of methemoglobin (Met-Hb) in blood is important for the diagnosis of poisoning by oxidants, such as nitrite, nitrate, chlorate, chlorite, alkyl nitrites, nitroglycerin, aniline and other compounds. In 1938, Evelyn and Malloy  had devised a photoelectric method for determination of Met-Hb in blood. Minor modifications of this method were made by several researchers to increase sensitivity [2–4]. These methods are based on a phenomenon that the absorbance maximum of weakly acidic Met-Hb at 630 nm disappears by addition of cyanide.
Benzodiazepines show antianxiety, hypnotic, anticonvulsant and muscle-relaxant effects. This group of drugs has wide safety dose ranges; it means that the ratio of the LD50 to the ED50 (therapeutic index) is high. Because of its safety, benzodiazepines are being widely used in the world. Some of benzodiazepines are also being abused or used for so-called “drug facilitated sexual assault”, and thus they are under the control of the Narcotics and Psychotropics Control Law; in Japan, triazolam abuse has become one of the serious social problems.

The cometabolism of citrate and glucose by growing
Lactococcus lactisssp. lactis bv. diacetylactis was studied
using a natural-abundance stable isotope technique. By a
judicious choice of substrates differing slightly in their
C ratios, the simultaneous metabolism of citrate and
glucose to a range of compounds was analysed. These end-products include lactate, acetate, formate, diacetyl and
acetoin. All these products have pyruvate as a common
In this paper, we put forward an information theoretic deﬁnition of the redundancy that is observed across the sound inventories of the world’s languages. Through rigorous statistical analysis, we ﬁnd that this redundancy is an invariant property of the consonant inventories. The statistical analysis further unfolds that the vowel inventories do not exhibit any such property, which in turn points to the fact that the organizing principles of the vowel and the consonant inventories are quite different in nature. ...
This chapter distinguish between costs that are capitalized and costs that are expensed in the period in which they are incurred; compare the financial reporting of the following classifications of intangible assets: purchased, internally developed, acquired in a business combination; explain and evaluate the effects on financial statements and ratios of capitalizing versus expensing costs in the period in which they are incurred;...
Chapter 15 focuses on financial statement analysis, which is used to assess the financial health of a company. It includes examining trends in key financial data, comparing financial data across companies, and analyzing financial ratios.
After Studying Chapter 6, you should be able to: Understand the purpose of basic financial statements and their contents, understand what is meant by “convergence” in accounting standards, explain why financial statement analysis is important to the firm and to outside suppliers of capital;...
The reuteransucrase enzymes ofLactobacillus reuteristrain 121 (GTFA)
andL. reuteristrain ATCC 55730 (GTFO) convert sucrose into a-d-glu-cans (labelled reuterans) with mainlya-(1fi4) glucosidic linkages (50% and
70%, respectively), plusa-(1fi6) linkages. In the present study, we report a
detailed analysis of various hybrid GTFA⁄O enzymes, resulting in the iden-
