At a pH below the PZC of the oxides, the soil becomes electropositive, which makes it possible for the electronegative functional groups of soluble organic anions to bind to the electropositive domains of soil particles.
Similarity between naturally occurring modified desiaiylated, electronegative and aortic low density lipoprotein.
95 ppm downfield, respectively due to the effect of the attached electronegative element coupled with the fact that both carbons are [sp.
Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) and especially its modifications, such as small dense, oxidized, desialylated, or electronegative LDL, play the key role in atherogenesis, and their levels positively correlate with the disease progression [77-79].

Carbide are being defined as the compound composed of carbon and a less electronegative element, so metal carbides are composed of metal and carbon atoms bonded together.
N]2 type) of the partial electronegative oxygen atom of the hydroxyl group of the Ser at the (electropositive) silicon atom of the silicic acid molecule.
Since these atoms are increasingly electronegative towards the upper right of the periodic table, they may share a lack of ability to enter into condensation reactions that involve the delivery of a hydrogen atom.
It replaces hydrogen because of its small size but it also brings with it electronic effects since fluorine is an electronegative element--it just pulls electrons from its surroundings.
11-13) The hydroxyl group of HEA not only reacts with PIH to form covalently crosslinking networks, but also engages in intramolecular and/or intermolecular hydrogen bonding with carbonyl, ether, or other electronegative acceptor functionality in the polymeric states.
Lewis acids attract electronegative atoms as well as perturb the orbitals of unsaturated carboxylic acids.
The introduction of a fluorine atom into a molecule is known to impart unique properties due to its highly electronegative nature and small size.
When an area of the brain is in use, it shifts to an electronegative state.
Half of the incorrectly predicted stereochemistries were on compounds containing halogen atoms, which may indicate a weakness in the model for highly electronegative atoms.
The selectivity observed in this Baeyer-Villiger reaction is rather unusual, but the electronegative 2,3-diol group would control the selectivity.
