Abstract: When a silica helium thermometer immersed in liquid nitrogen gave surprizing readings, I proposed ice crystallizing on it had changed shape to accommodate water molecules’ irregular shape. Now known as ‘ice XIc’, it formed on primordial Earth’s poles, releasing latent energy as ? ~ 4? infrared laser light. Polarized by multiple reflection, it photo-phosphorylated deoxynucleotides on tropical water surfaces, creating chiral DNA. ‘Transport DNAs’ created H-bond-lined pores through proto-cell membranes. Ice-light drove a ratchet mechanism feeding them with substrates. Life originated when tDNAs replicated, their descendants govern metabolism, proteins and enzyme catalysis evolved later,~2,000/cell now complement barrels of ?-helices. Deficiencies of the trace-elements they deploy as carriers explain common disorders. Hairpin proteins bind DNA, forming ‘minions’, they pack chromosomes, enable error-free replication and maintain sequence integrity. Their proton-ordered H-bond arrays oscillate constituting biological clocks, default settings store intellectual data. Replacing carbon chemistry with energetic simplifies science. Artificial intelligence modeled on minions would help diplomats forge agreements, scientist collaborate and select marriage partners. Organelles commensurate with ?mediate biological energy coupling, accounting for muscle contraction and photosynthesis. Minion tunnels accelerate protons, fusing with nuclei obstructing them and emitting ?-rays; using these to supply power might resolve climate change.

Keyword: Metal complexes, pH-metric, stability constants, thermodynamic.
Page No: 83-90
Abstract: Ni(II) and Co(II) metal complexes of 1,2,3-triazole have been studied in water –methanol medium by pH –metric titration with the standard glass electrode, ionic strength 0.1M KNO3 and buffer soluti on at the pH 7 and 9. The titrations were carried out for the ligand against 0.05M NaOH solution as well as metal-ligand against NaOH at different temperature 35, 45 and 55oC. The p ka value (stability constant) were determined at respective Ni(II) 2.51, 2.60, 2.38 and Cu(II) 2.55, 2.30 and 2.20 and the results revealed that metal complex decreases with increasing temperature, the larger the value of the stability constant the further the reaction to the right . This implies that the complex ions with larger stability constant are more stable than the ones with smaller one. Thermodynamics studies result determined at 308k 318k and 323k respectively was calculated as follows: Cobalt (II) ?H = -52310.86 KJmol-1, ?S = -110.36 and ?G = -18320.63, - KJmol-117217.05 and - 16113.48 KJmol-1, Nickel(II) ?H = -43457.21 KJmol-1, ?S = -86.32 and ?G = -16822.41, -16005.14 and -15141.87 KJmol-1. Negative values of ?H, indicated exothermic reaction while negative Gibb’s free energy explained the spontaneity of the metal-ligand systems and the feasibility of metal complexes.

Title: ESSENTIAL OIL COMPOSITION OF VERONIA AMYGDALINA DEL FROM MEKELLE, NORTHERN ETHIOPIA.
Author: C.R.Unnithan
Keyword: Veronia amygdalina, Asteracea, essential oil.
Page No: 91-93
Abstract: The essential oil constituents isolated from the aerial parts of Veronia amygdalina Del., family, Asteraceae, from Mekelle, Northern Ethiopia was screened by GC-MS. A total of 23 constituents represe nting 95.8% in the oil of V. amygdalina were identified by GC-MS. The oil is composed of a mixture of mono and sesquiterpine components. The major essential oil contents of Veronia amygdalina identified were 1, 8-cineole (23.2%) and muuralol (17.1%). The oil also contained a- pinene (5.4%), carvone (5.3%), and caryophyllene (6.4%), humulene (6.0% farnesol (5.5 %) A comparative study of the oil constituents indicated that there are significant variations.
