  1. 1. Levulinic Acid : Versatile Building Block for Plasticizer Design

    Author : Wenxiang Xuan; Minna Hakkarainen; Karin Odelius; Rafael Auras; KTH; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; levulinic acid; plasticizer; polylactide; migration; degradation; antibacterial;

    Abstract : The utilization of renewable resources is a challenging and an importantaspect towards development of sustainable plastic products. Therefore,commercial biomass conversion to produce biobased chemicals isnecessary to replace current fossil-based chemicals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Wild plants can improve their rhizosphere chemistry in acid soils

    Author : Marion Schöttelndreier; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Växtekologi; Plant ecology; wild plants.; time pattern; soil heterogeneity; rhizotrons; rhizosphere; pH; oxalic acid; nutrient availability; malic acid; hydroponics; citric acid; 14C; biodegradation; acid soils; aluminium toxicity; Soil Science; agricultural hydrology; Lantbrukshydrologi; marklära; Plant biochemistry; Växtbiokemi;

    Abstract : Growth conditions on acid soils may be hampered by low nutrient availability and phytotoxic Al (aluminium) concentrations. In this thesis I present my studies on adaptation mechanisms of wild plants to acid soils in the close root environment, the rhizosphere. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lysophosphatidic acid : Physiological effects and structure-activity relationships

    Author : Ulrika K. Nilsson; Samuel Svensson; Karin E. Bornfeldt; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Lysophospholipids pharmacology; physiology; structure-activity relationship; muscle; smooth; drug effects; myometrium; norepinephrine; epinephrine; signal transduction; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Lipids havepreviously been considered primarily as building blocks of the cell membrane, but are now also recognized as important cell signaling molecules. Lysophosphatidic acid (LPA) is a glycerophospholipid consisting of a phosphate head group, a linker region, and a lipophilic tail. READ MORE

  4. 4. Engineering synthetic pathways for adipic acid biosynthesis

    Author : Jae Ho Shin; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
