Summary of "Structure and density comparison of noble gas hydrates encapsulating Xe, Kr, and Ar."

Understanding the effect of guest molecules on host framework is important for the development of structure-based properties of inclusion compounds. Here, the crystal structures of the noble gas hydrates encapsulating Xe, Kr, and Ar were studied by powder X-ray diffraction measurements. The crystal structures and hydration numbers of these noble gas hydrates were solved by the Rietveld refinements using optimized models with the direct-space technique. It was revealed that host cage size of these hydrates changed depending on type of guest molecules even though their unit-cell parameters were the same. Based on the structure models obtained, the densities of Xe, Kr, and Ar gas hydrates were also determined to be 1.837, 1.445 and 1.097 kg/m3 at 93 K, respectively. Our findings from crystallographic point of view may give insight into further understanding of the thermodynamic stability and physical properties of gas hydrates encapsulating small guests.

Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.

Separation of particles according to density by employing a gradient of varying densities. At equilibrium each particle settles in the gradient at a point equal to its density. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)

The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.

Conditions with abnormally low levels of LIPOPROTEINS in the blood. This may involve any of the lipoprotein subclasses, including ALPHA-LIPOPROTEINS (high-density lipoproteins); BETA-LIPOPROTEINS (low-density lipoproteins); and PREBETA-LIPOPROTEINS (very-low-density lipoproteins).

A 6.6-kDa protein component of VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; INTERMEDIATE-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS. Apo C-I displaces APO E from lipoproteins, modulate their binding to receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL), and thereby decrease their clearance from plasma. Elevated Apo C-I levels are associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA and ATHEROSCLEROSIS.
