ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering

ANTE: Abstracts in New Technologies and Engineering (formerly Current Technology Database), is an abstracting and indexing service monitoring publications from the U.K. and the U.S. Coverage includes new technologies such as information technology and computing, electronics, biotechnology, medical technology, as well as engineering (including construction, electrical and chemical engineering) and allied subject areas. Abstracts are available from January 1993 to the present.

Sources covered include over 350 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.

    AB: Abstract
    A base porphyrin, etioporphyrin (EPI), was synthesized and a number of metal-etioporphyrin compounds were derived from EPI by metal insertion, these being nickel, vanadyl, palladium and platinum. The metal-etioporphyrins were supported on silica gel with various loadings to be employed as catalysts for hydrocarbon cracking and to a minor extent for hydrogenation. The porphyrins themselves were characterized using temperature programmed decomposition (TPD), temperature programmed reduction (TPR), mass spectroscopy (MS) and infra-red (IR) spectroscopy. TPD studies up to 550C indicated complete stability and TPR studies (20-500C) showed interaction with hydrogen, nickel-EPI and Pd-EPI especially showing strong interaction.
