Research by Ihab Elzeyadi, a professor of architecture at the Univ. of Oregon has completed the first stage of a Green Classroom Toolbox for architects and planners to use in their energy retrofits and modernization plans.
Süd-Chemie AG and The Linde Group have opened a pilot-production plant of second-generation biofuels based on lignocellulosic biomass in Munich.
Sachets containing resin beads that absorb algal toxins are being used to monitor toxins in coastal waters.
Urz Holze, SVP of operations at Google, notes that ICT pay for themselves by reducing emissions in other sectors of the economy.
This application note describes how the ActiPix UV area imaging detector can be used to test biocatalyst substrate specificity towards a mixture of UV active compounds using a continuous engagement electrophoretically mediated microanalysis assay method.
Like a lighthouse beacon in a soupy fog, they stand out from the ones the body already produces.
Currently, different color laser light is created using different materials and processes, but with the new nanocrystals, altering the size of the nanocrystal can create any color laser.
Increased Cell Yields in CO2-Independent Conditions Using the Corning HYPERFlask Cell Culture VesselMay 8, 2009 1:02 pm | White Papers
The drug discovery and biotechnology industries continually demand large numbers of cells and high quality biologicals with minimal investment. One by product of this is the movement of some cell culture growth being conducted in large warm rooms without atmospheric control. To achieve this, media designed with buffering systems suitable for atmospheric CO2 levels must be used.
The DIN EN 14214 biodiesel standard stipulates a non-aqueous potentiometric acid-base titration for determining the acid number and a redox titration with sodium thiosulfate solution for the determination of the iodine number. While in the first case the equivalence point is detected by the Solvotrode, the iodine number is determined using a Pt Titrode.
Incomplete reaction leads to the formation of residual glycerol intermediates such as mono-, di- and triacylglycerides. In contrast, complete conversion results in the formation of highly water-soluble glycerol. The latter is separated from the final product at the end of the production process.
The following from GFS Chemicals is in response to the “Unchanging Change” editorial by Editor-in-Chief Tim Studt in the January 2009 issue of Laboratory Equipment. The respondent counters that a disproportionately large amount of attention is focused on a topic – global warming – that many consider speculative and politically motivated at the expense of issues with a far more immediate and critical impact.
In tests, the Harvard researchers are now able to calculate star velocity shifts of less than 1 m/sec.
Traces of antibiotics can be found in some commercial honey brands; method simultaneously detects the presence of 17 antibiotics in honey within less than 10 minutes.
PGL balances can withstand the rigors of field or factory work, as well as the demanding laboratory and classroom setting.
UC San Diego researchers have shown that bacterial proteins called phytochromes can be engineered into infrared-fluorescent proteins.
