Strain wars 2: Binding constants, enthalpies, entropies, Gibbs energies and rates of binding of SARS-CoV-2 variants
SARS-CoV-2 virus is the cause of COVID-19 pandemic and belongs to RNA viruses, showing great tendency to mutate. Several dozens of mutations have been observed on the SARS-CoV-2 virus, during the last two years. Some of ...
Occurrences and characterization of alunite group minerals from the Lece-Radan Oligo-Miocene volcanic complex (Serbia)
(Polish Geological Institute - National Research Institute, 2021)
The Lece-Radan area of the Oligo-Miocene magmatic complex (former Tethyan active margin, southern Serbia) contains more or less altered volcanic and/or pyroclastic rocks of predominant andesitic, andesitic-dacitic, to ...
Living organisms from Prigogine’s perspective: an opportunity to introduce students to biological entropy balance
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
All living structures, from archaea to human, are open thermodynamic systems analysed through nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Nonequilibrium thermodynamics is a field with important applications to life sciences, which is ...
Elemental composition, heat capacity from 2 to 300 K and derived thermodynamic functions of 5 microorganism species
Detailed elemental analysis and low-temperature calorimetric measurement results are reported for the first time for Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria and mold fungi. Microorganism unit carbon formulas (empirical ...
Biothermodynamics of Viruses from Absolute Zero (1950) to Virothermodynamics (2022)
Biothermodynamics of viruses is among the youngest but most rapidly developing scientific disciplines. During the COVID-19 pandemic, it closely followed the results published by molecular biologists. Empirical formulas ...
Thermodynamic properties of human tissues
(Society of Thermal Engineers of Serbia, 2020)
This paper reports empirical formulas, enthalpies of formation, molar entropies, Gibbs energies of formation, and molar heat capacities at 25°C and 37°C for human soft tissues. The results show that Gibbs energy, except ...
Entropy change of open thermodynamic systems in self-organizing processes
(Society of Thermal Engineers of Serbia, 2014)
The thermodynamic models available in the literature predict that during self-organizing processes the entropy of a cell considered as an open thermodynamic system decreases. This prediction leads to conclusion that cell ...
Electrochemical lithiation/delithiation kinetics and capacity of phosphate tungsten bronze and its chemically pre-lithiated derivatives in aqueous solutions
Monophosphate bronze (PW8O26, WPB) was synthesized by low-temperature (650 °C) heating of 12-tungstophosphoric acid (WPA). Its lithiated derivative with a low lithium content (Li3-WPB) was synthesized by heating lithium ...
Comparative study of entropy and information change in closed and open thermodynamic systems
In this paper we discuss the entropy and information aspects of closed and open systems. The information and entropy change of the system are discussed in the context of RNA synthesis.
Macroscopically-zoned grandite from the garnetite skarn of Meka Presedla (Kopaonik Mountain, Serbia)
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2012)
The macroscopically-zoned grandite from the garnetite skarn of Meka Presedla (Kopaonik Mountain, Serbia) was studied with optical microscopy, electron microprobe analysis (EMPA), Fourier transform infra-red (FT–IR), and ...
