10, experiments of ozone decomposition in model solutions of nitrobenzene, glyoxylic acid, oxalic acid, and real wastewater from aniline dye production were carried out.
Differently from nitrobenzene and oxalic acid ozonation of glyoxylic acid followed to our surprise zero order in the range of the tested initial concentration (2-16) x [10.sup.-3] mol/L in acid (pH = 3), neutral (pH = 7-8), as well as basic media (pH = 11-12).
It was also established that in the case of ozonation of a mixture of compounds (such as wastewater), containing a faster reacting compound (for example, glyoxylic acid or nitrobenzene) and a slower reacting compound (for example, oxalic acid), the compound reacting faster plays the decisive role.
In brief, HSA (fraction V, 1 mg; Sigma) was incubated in 1 mL of 0.1 mol/L borate buffer (pH 9.0) containing 0.25 mol/L glyoxylic acid and 1 mg of sodium cyanoborohydride for 12 h at 0 [degrees]C.
It entails applying a solution comprising glyoxylic acid at a pH of 1.5-2.1 to prewashed hair, keeping the solution in contact with hair for 15 to 120 minutes (with an average duration of 60 minutes); drying the hair, and straightening the hair with a hair straightening iron at temperature of approximately 200+/-50[degrees]C.
Cole, Hopkins tracked down the glyoxylic acid impurity in the glacial acetic acid reagent responsible for the already well-known Adamkiewicz reaction of proteins.

But while a wide range of techniques and products are available to Latin American consumers, such as glyoxylic acid and natural oils, they do not work as well as formaldehyde.
