Abstract: Methods and compositions are provided for simultaneous reduction of NO.sub.x and SO.sub.x in combustion effluents and process gas streams, exmploying a sorbent material of calcium or dolomitic lime hydrated with aqueous carboxamides, optionally with carbinol reductants, in amounts sufficient to reduce the NO.sub.x and SO.sub.x concentrations from the effluents. The sorbent material may be introduced as dry powders or wet hydrates in effluent streams at temperatures ranging from 400.degree. to 2400.degree. F.
Abstract: Disclosure is made of a means and method for removing immunologically reactive compounds from the blood of living mammals. The method of the invention comprises reacting the compound with an immunological homolog of the compound, bound to the surface of a lipid vesicle and thereafter separating the resulting complex from the blood plasma of the mammal.
Abstract: Pollen suppressants of the formula ##STR1## wherein Z represents a divalent organic radical of the formula --CH.dbd.CH--CH.dbd.CH--, --CH.dbd.CH--CH.dbd.N--, --CH.dbd.CH--N.dbd.CH--, --CH.dbd.CH--NH--, --CH.dbd.CH--O--, or --CH.dbd.CH--S-- or said radical in which an H of Z is replaced with a halogen atom with the proviso that no more than three H or Z are replaced by fluorine; a C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxy, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkanoyl, cyano, nitro, hydroxy, or trihalomethyl group; or a group of the formula --NR.sup.1 R.sup.2 wherein R.sup.1 and R.sup.2 independently represent a hydrogen atom or a C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl group; Y is Y.sup.1 R.sup.3 or NR.sup.4 R.sup.5 wherein Y.sup.1 is oxygen or sulfur; R.sup.3 is hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkoxyalkyl, cyclohexylmethyl, halogenated C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, phenyl, or benzyl; and R.sup.4 and R.sup.5 are independently selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, C.sub.1 -C.sub.4 alkyl, or C.sub.1 -C.sub.
