Abstract: This paper compares the efficiency of D2EHPA and Cyanex 272 to extract the divalent manganese cation from an actual leaching solution obtained by reductive leaching of a low-grade pyrolusite ore, using SO2 gas. The studied variables were the extractant concentration in the organic phase, the pH of the leached liquor and the volume ratio between organic phase and leached liquor. It was observed that D2EHPA is a better extractant than Cyanex272. Therefore, with the best experimental conditions found, both extractants reach a manganese recovery around 95% with five extraction stages conducted under the following conditions: 25?C, O/A = 2, 10% volume of extractant concentration in the organic phase, pH of the leached liquor before the mixing between 8 and 8.5, and one minute of mixing time for each extraction stage.

Abstract: objective: to analyze the core group for sexually transmitted infections (sti) among college students. methods: cross-sectional study carried out in a convenience sample comprising 711 college students of the public university of morelos, mexico, between 2001 and 2003. sociodemographic and sexual behavior information were collected using self-applied questionnaires. herpes simplex 2 (hsv-2) infection was tested in the blood. the number of sexual partners in the last year and cocaine consumption were used as indicators to construct the dependent variable "level of sti risk" in three categories: low, medium and high risk (core group). a multinomial analysis was conducted to evaluate whether different sex behaviors were associated with the variable "level of sti risk". results: there was significant association between hsv-2 seroprevalence and the variable "level of sti risk": 13%, 5.6% and 3.8% were found in high (core group), medium and low categories, respectively. there were gender differences regarding the core group. men started having sexual intercourse earlier, had more sex partners, higher alcohol and drug consumption, higher frequency of sex intercourse with sex workers, exchanging sex for money, occasional and concurrent partners compared to women. conclusions: the study findings suggest existing contextual characteristics in the study population that affect their sex behavior. in mexico, the cultural conception of sexuality is determined mainly by gender differences where men engage in higher risky sexual behavior than women.

Abstract: In cyanidation, the world wide method for precious metals recovery, the chemical analysis of cyanide, is a very important, but complex operation. Cyanide can be present forming different species, each of them with different stability, toxicity, analysis method and elimination technique. For cyanide analysis, there exists a wide selection of analytical methods, but most of them present difficulties because of the interference of species present in the solution. This paper presents the different available methods for chemical analysis of cyanide: titration, specific electrode and distillation, giving special emphasis on the interferences problem, with the aim of helping in the interpretation of the results. En el proceso de cianuración para la obtención de oro y plata a partir de sus minerales, el análisis químico del cianuro es una operación compleja y de gran importancia para su control y para la descarga de sus efluentes. El cianuro se encuentra formando diferentes compuestos, cada uno de ellos con diferente estabilidad y, por lo tanto, diferente toxicidad, diferente método de análisis y diferente método de eliminación. Para el análisis de cianuro existe una gran variedad de métodos analíticos disponibles, pero estos métodos presentan dificultades a causa de la interferencia de algunos elementos presentes en la solución. El análisis resulta complicado y los resultados pueden variar según el método utilizado. En este artículo se presentan los principales métodos de análisis químico disponibles para el cianuro: volumetría, electrodo específico y destilación, presentando las interferencias y los problemas asociados a cada técnica, con el objeto de interpretar con más precisión los resultados obtenidos con cada método.

Abstract: Objetivo. Estimar la prevalencia de infección por el virus del papiloma humano (VPH) en estudiantes universitarios y utilizar dicha frecuencia como un marcador biológico para evaluar el comportamiento sexual. Material y métodos. Se realizó un estudio transversal, en estudiantes de la Universidad Autónoma del estado de Morelos, México, durante el periodo 2000-2001. Se aplicó un cuestionario y se colectaron muestras genitales para detectar ADN de los VPH oncogénicos. Los datos se analizaron utilizando pruebas de Ji cuadrada y razones de momios. Resultados. La prevalencia global del VPH en 194 estudiantes fue de 14.4%. Las mujeres con dos o más parejas sexuales durante el último a o presentaron mayor riesgo de infección por el VPH (RM 6.0 IC 1.7-21.1), al igual que las que utilizaron anticonceptivos hormonales y espermicidas en su última relación sexual (RM 3.0 IC 1.0-8.7). Los hombres que consumieron cocaína tuvieron más riesgo de infección por el VPH (RM 7.6 IC 1.3-45.1). Conclusiones. La prevalencia del VPH es relativamente alta. La utilización del VPH como un marcador biológico de comportamientos sexuales en mujeres es pertinente; en hombres, es necesario ampliar la muestra.
