Sols are dispersions of small solid particles in a liquid. The particles may be macromolecules or may be clusters of small molecules. Lyophobic sols are those in which there is no affinity between the dispersed phase and the liquid (e.g. silver chloride dispersed in water). Lyophobic sols are inherently unstable, in time the particles aggregate, and form a precipitate. Lyiophilic sols, on the other hand, are more like true solutions in which the solute molecules are large and have an affinity for the solvent (e.g. starch in water). Association colloids are systems in which the dispersed phase consists of clusters of molecules that have lyophobic and lyophilic parts (e.g. soap in water).
A mixture involving a solvent such as water and very large molecules or groups of molecules that are mixed into the solvent. The large groups of molecules are prevented from settling out by a combination of hydration shells and kinetic energy from the water molecules. A change in pH can cause these large molecules to settle out and not be available to the cell. A gel is similar but the molecules are in a mesh work which holds the solvent molecules in place. Think "Jello".
a unit of time on Mars, equal to the average length of the Martian day as it would appear to an observer on the red planet. The sol equals 24 hours 39 minutes 35 seconds, which is 88 775 seconds or about 1.0275 Earth days.
Spaced ut ibary. Former name of the Merril Collection, a branch of the Toronto Public Library devoted entirely to science fiction. It publishes a newsletter, Sol Rising, and sponsors public readings and other events. Head librarian is Lorna Toolis.
Sol was the name or personification of the Sun (in Latin), and can also refer to sunlight, sunbeam, or east (the direction where the Sun rises). The Latin name is widely known, but not common in general English language usage, although the related adjective solar is more common. 'Sol' is more frequently used in science fiction writing, as a formal name for the specific star, since in many stories the local sun is a different star and thus the generic term "the sun" would be ambiguous.
Usually gold, but in Philalethan chymistry it can also refer to sulfureous component of metals, especially the sulfur of iron that is transferred to martial regulus of antimony during the latter's reduction from stibnite.
The sol was a unit of currency in Argentina and Bolivia during the 19th century, equivalent to the real. The name sol was used alongside real in Argentina, whilst in Bolivia it replaced the real in 1827 and circulated until decimalization in 1864. In Argentina, the sol was worth ten decimos, with 16 soles = 1 escudo.
Sol ist the debut album of soundartist Avagliano, which took 15 months to get finishished. This album is a tribute to our solarsystem. Sol was immediately distributed by majorlabel EMI Music Publishing.
Sol is a cross-platform project management tool. It organizes sources and configuration settings as compiler independent projects and generates native projects . A GUI is provided to visually manage projects.
The monetary unit in Ironrealm, now used heavily via electronic methods, such as credit, but originally copper coins about the size of quarters with the image of a rising (or setting, depending on one's point of view) engraved into the surface.
When organizing and managing a private or public event for an association or organized group, you must have obtained an SOL for consumption of beverage alcohol at the event, and have completed the licensee certification under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act.
Statute of Limitation: statutorily set maximum time periods during which lawsuits can be brought to enforce rights. After the time period set out in the applicable statute of limitations has run (expired), no legal action can be brought.
Skilled Occupations List. If you are intending to apply under ANY one of the skilled categories, you must have a nominated occupation which is on the SOL at the time you apply. In order to be successful in your application, your qualifications (and work experience, in some cases) must be assessed by the Australian assessing authority responsible for your SOL nominated occupation.
