Advances in Chemistry Research. Volume 60 opens with a chapter on Mössbauer spectroscopy, a spectroscopic method based on the Mössbauer effect, which can be defined as the nearly recoil-free, resonant absorption and emission of g-rays in solids.

Next, the authors the chemical structure of various alkene oligomers, kinetic features of the oligomerization reactions, and applications of oligomer studies for the elucidation of the general mechanism of alkene polymerization reactions.

The recent literature concerning self-assembled monolayers containing terminal glycans is reviewed, with a focus on their biomolecular interactions.

Following this, the results of a study are presented wherein a reliable xanthine chemical sensor was fabricated with facile wet-chemically prepared ZnO/Al2O3/Cr2O3 nanoparticles in alkaline medium at low temperature.

Various piperidine derivatives are reviewed in the context of their applications as antioxidants and anticancer agents. Today, many compounds containing piperidine are used in the treatment of various diseases.

The authors also explore green methodology for the synthesis of highly functionalized piperidine under mild reaction conditions with good yields, high diastereoselectivity, operational simplicity and easy work-up procedures.

In closing, an outline of applications of the applications of various piperidine derivatives as antipsychotic agents is provided. Antipsychotic drugs have a wide range of pharmacological effects such as promoting sleep.
