How can you use “oxidizing” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • They suggest that these oxidants are capable of oxidizing organic materials causing release of carbon dioxide as seen in the Viking experiments.

  • The luc reporter was driven by a portion of the period (per) gene (its 5'-flanking sequences and those encoding the N-terminal 2/3 of the protein) in some cases or the 5'-flanking sequences of the timeless (tim) gene in the others; these molecular constructs were introduced into the D. melanogaster genome by germline transformation [ 32 18 33 ] . Reporter activity was sampled from an enzymatic reaction (luciferase oxidizing luciferin, present in the medium surrounding the antennae); the reaction produces a bioluminescent signal that is measured in counts per second once each hour [ 13 ] . One genetically based comparison made in this study involved the effects of the (normal) cry +allele compared with that of cry b, tested in LD 12:12 (12 hours of light followed by 12 hours of darkness, over the course of about 5-6 cycles per specimen).

  • Many organisms have evolved strategies to remove reactive oxygen species and repair damage, which have enabled them to prosper from the tremendous oxidizing potential of O 2 without succumbing to oxidative damage.

  • As illustrated by the examples above, an array of chemical modifications obtained by oxidizing cysteinyl residues has been exploited in combating oxidative stress.

  • Ferrate(VI) is a very strong oxidizing agent and will readily oxidize many organic molecules in aqueous solution [ 19 20 21 ] . High oxidation power selectivity and by-production of non-toxic Fe(III) make potassium ferrate(VI) an environmentally friendly oxidant for removal of industrial contaminants from natural waters [ 22 ] . We confirmed this degradative activity of ferrate using 2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT), though a mixture of dodecane and hexadecane, as might be found within microbial membranes, was not degraded by ferrate(VI) (Figures 1and 2).
