Soft elements and ligands are highly polarizable and have small charge states. Hard elements and ligands are weakly polarized and have higher charge states (Jolly). Borderline elements and ligands have polarizabilities and charge states that are intermediate to hard and soft elements and ligands.

...acid Aristolochic acid is made of a mixture of both aristolochic acid I and aristolochic acid II in a 1:1 ratio. Aristolochic acid is highly carcinogenic (cancer-causing) and nephrotoxic (harms the nephrons in the kidneys) [1]. Normally, this type of acid is found in several natural, botanical products sold commonly as 'traditional medicines' and in diet-supplements/weight loss preparations [11]. Urinary tract damage and other cancers have been linked to the intake of aristolochic acid as well as kidney damage and kidney failure which requires dialysis or worse, kidney transplantation [2]. Therefore, this makes aristolochic acid both nephrotoxic... and carcinogenic [11]. Aristolochic...

...Reaction Paper As a 70-year-old woman who has lived a typical American lifestyle of a littletoo much foot, a little to rich and a little too sedentary, I am now experiencing a wide variety of health issues that require me to take a daily regimen of prescription drugs and dietary supplements. This regimen requires me to rise an hour before breakfast to take the first pill, a Nexium tablet to control the acid reflux I’ve developed, during which time I also take my Lipitor, Evista and calcium carbonate. Because I am supposed to avoid eating or drinking any grapefruit products, I have also had to change my regular breakfast routine, which used to include this, one of my favorite foods... Adherence...

...Reaction Paper on David Cole Interviews Dr. Franciszek Piper David Cole Interviews about Auschwitz and its gas chambers are quite informative. According to my perception, the gas chambers have holes that are indicative of the fact that these holes were employed for discharging the gas Zyklon B from outside. Ceilings of the gas chambers were used for discharging the gas inside the chambers. After World War II, changes were made, as the gas chambers are not in its original form. They are reconstructed. They are not fully representing the extremity of their homicide capability, The doors at the time of killing were made airtight while after World War II, there were new doors placed, which were...

...acid rain” was introduced by Robert Smith, English engineer, in his book Air and Rain: The Beginning of a Chemical Climatology (1872) (Myers 267). Acid rains containing solutes of sulfuric and nitric acids cause serious damage to nature, because soil, water, vegetation, animals, and people become their victims. Gases that are released by burning of fossil fuels, among others, are composed from dioxins of sulfur and nitrogen. Depending on the composition of a certain fuel there may be more or less of these dioxins. Fuel oil and sour coal provide the most saturated sulfur dioxide emissions. Tons of sulfur dioxide emitted into the atmosphere...

...acid Phosphoric acid solution (0.1M) was titrated against ~0.2M NaOH solution in duplicate and titration curves of pH versus volume of NaOH (mL) were obtained. Both the titration curves displayed only 2 equivalence points instead of the expected 3 because the third equivalence point usually gets obscured as Ka3 is close to Kw, the water dissociation constant. The pH values at the observed equivalence points were nearly 1.5 times lower than the calculated values which were made based on the assumption that the molarity of the titrant NaOH was 0.2 while it actually was 0.232. Introduction An acid is defined, according to Brønsted and Lowry, as a compound which donates one or more protons... Polyprotic...
