  1. 1. 13C-Enriched Dehydrogenation Polymers Used for Studying Light-Induced Yellowing of Lignocellulosic Materials

    Author : Jim Parkås; [2003]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; lignin model compounds; differentiating xylem; yellowing; Picea abies; 13C NMR spectroscopy; lignin; DHP; 13C-enrichment; solid state; spruce;

    Abstract : This study deals with the use of selectively 13C-enriched dehydrogenation polymers (DHPs) as models of lignin in lignocellulosic materials for elucidating the reaction pathways involved in light-induced yellowing. Methods for the synthesis of coniferin, a precursor to lignin and DHP, selectively 13C-enriched in the aromatic ring (positions 1, 3, 4, and 5) have been developed. READ MORE

  2. 2. Contrast-Enhanced Magnetic Resonance Angiography - Development and optimization of techniques for paramagnetic and hyperpolarized contrast media

    University dissertation from Jonas Svensson, Dept Radiation Physics, Malmö University Hospital, SE-205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Jonas Svensson; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; egenskaper elektriska; Kondenserade materiens egenskaper:elektronstruktur; spectroscopy; relaxation; Angiography; Magnetic resonance; Contrast-enhanced; Hyperpolarized; Condensed matter:electronic structure; 13C; supraconductors; electrical; magnetic and optical properties; magnetiska och optiska ; supraledare; magnetisk resonans; spektroskopi;

    Abstract : Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (CE-MRA) is a diagnostic method for imaging of vascular structures based on nuclear magnetic resonance. Vascular enhancement is achieved by injection of a contrast medium (CM). READ MORE

  3. 3. Hyperpolarized Nuclei for NMR Imaging and Spectroscopy – Methodology and model studies of lung and vascular function

    University dissertation from Sven Månsson, Dept. of Experimental Research, Malmö University Hospital, SE–205 02 Malmö, Sweden

    Author : Sven Månsson; [2002]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; lung function; 3He; 13C; 129Xe; Elektroteknik; Electrical engineering; Magnetic resonance; hyperpolarized;

    Abstract : Based on the principle of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) are widely used methods in medical diagnostic imaging and biological research. Clinical MRI has been restricted to imaging of protons, for reasons of sensitivity. READ MORE

  4. 4. Impact of root and mycorrhizal exudation on soil carbon fluxes : influence of elevated CO2 and metals

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Emma M. Johansson; Patrick van Hees; Bert Allard; Phil Ineson; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; amino acids; 13C; carbon cycle; ectomycorrhiza; elevated CO2; exudation; DOC; LMWOA; metal stress; monosaccharides; oxalate; Pinus sylvestris; saprotrophic fungi; soil respiration; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Environmental chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Miljökemi; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The thesis concerns the behavior of root and ectomycorrhizal (ECM) exudates. In particular, the dynamics of soluble low molecular weight (LMW) organic compounds such as organic acids (LMWOAs), amino acids, monosaccharides, and dissolved organic carbon (DOC) have been studied.

  5. 5. Achieving carbon isotope mass balance in northern forest soils, soil respiration and fungi

    University dissertation from Örebro : Örebro universitet

    Author : Björn Boström; Alf Ekblad; Phil Ineson; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; 13C; Carbon cycle; Ectomycorrhizal fungi; Forest soil; Microbial respiration; Soil respiration; Stable isotopes; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Northern forests contain a large part of the global terrestrial carbon pool and it is unclear whether they will be sinks or sources for atmospheric carbon if the climate warms as predicted. Stable isotope techniques provide unique tools to study the carbon cycle at different scales but the interpretation of the isotope data is impaired by our inability to close the carbon isotope mass balance of ecosystems.
