An earthquake is a shaking incident of the earth due to the movement or shift of rocks in the lithospheric part. This occurs suddenly due to the movement of tectonic plates. Central Sulawesi is an area of Sulawesi Island that has a high level of seismicity. This is because Sulawesi Island has many active...
In order to improve quality, safety and dependability, researches on the mechanical characteristics of the aluminum honeycomb sandwich panel have been given more prominence. In the present study, an equivalent laminated model with three layers is presented to simulate the behavior of the aluminum honeycomb...
Implementation of the Gath-Geva Clustering Algorithm in the Clustering Districts/Cities in Central Sulawesi Based on Public Health Development Indicators
Nichen Grasya Peso’a, Rais, Nurul Fiskia Gamayanti
Public health development indicators are a health indicator set that can describe health problems. The health indicators set can, directly and indirectly, increase longevity and healthy life expectancy. Central Sulawesi was listed as the sixth province in Indonesia with the lowest public health development...

Monolayer SiO2 films with various dimethyl formamide (DMF) concentrations were prepared on BK7 glass by the sol–gel method. The refractive index and physical thickness of the SiO2 films were calculated using the transmission spectra of the samples. Laser-induced damage threshold (LIDT) results showed...
Preparations of Methylphenyldiethoxsilane by One Step Grignard Method and Methylphenylcyclosiloxane by Hydrolysis and Pyrolysis Methods
Min Li, Liu-Meng Chen, Bo-Quan Jiang
Methyl phenol cyclic silicone (MPCS) and methyl phenyl diethoxy silane (MPDS) are important materials for production of addition-cured liquid silicone rubber. The one step Grignard method was used to synthesize MPDS and the orthogonal test method was applied to optimize the process. The maximum MPDS...

Many potential medicines have been discovered from marine natural products (MNPs). It indicates that marine compounds are essential sources in drug development and discovery. Although many marine compounds show particular biological activity, few are recorded as antibacterial compounds. Therefore, finding...
Preparation of Methylphenylvinyl Raw Rubber by Bulk Polymerization and Ring-Opening Polymerization Methods
Ting Liu, Shi-Jian Chen, Bo-Quan Jiang
Methylphenylvinyl raw rubber (MPVRR) is one of the important materials for preparation of phenyl-containing additive molding liquid silicone rubber (AMLSR). Two methods, bulk polymerization (BP) and ring-opening polymerization (ROP), were used to prepare MPVRR. The effects of formulation, temperature...
