  1. 1. Phenolic Antioxidants in Wood Smoke

    Author : Jennica Kjällstrand; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : smoke; benzene; methoxyphenols; antioxidants; wood; lignin; combustion; biomass;

    Abstract : Smoke from residential wood burning constitutes a complex mixture of organic compounds with varying environmental and health effects. This thesis focuses on antioxidants and aromatic hydrocarbons emitted from small-scale burning. READ MORE

  2. 2. Deterioration of Polyethylene Exposed to Chlorinated Species in Aqueous Phases : Test Methods, Antioxidants Consumption and Polymer Degradation

    Author : Wenbin Yu; Ulf Gedde; Sahar Al-Malaika; KTH; []
    Keywords : Antioxidants; Polyethylene pipes; Chlorine dioxide; Degradation;

    Abstract : This thesis presents a study of antioxidant depletion in water containing chlorinated species (water containing 10 ppm either Cl2 or ClO2, buffered to pH = 6.8), the degradation products in the aqueous phase, and polyethylene pipe degradation scenarios. READ MORE

  3. 3. Regenerable Organochalcogen Antioxidants : An Explorative Study

    Author : Jiajie Yan; Lars Engman; David J. Procter; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; autoxidation; antioxidant; selenium; tellurium; regenerable; multifunctional; radical-trapping; hydroperoxide-decomposing; co-antioxidant; Chemistry with specialization in Organic Chemistry; Kemi med inriktning mot organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Antioxidants are widely used to protect organic materials from damages caused by autoxidation, an oxidation process that occurs under normal aerobic conditions. In this thesis, novel multifunctional organoselenium and organotellurium antioxidants were designed, synthesized, and evaluated in search for compounds with better radical-trapping capacity, regenerability, and hydroperoxide-decomposing ability.

  4. 4. Protection of Biomolecules by Antioxidants - Mechanisms and Applications

    Author : Carl Grey; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; dG; antioxidants; mass spectrometry; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; Food and drink technology; Livsmedelsteknik; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; DNA; Oxidation; Protein; Fenton reaction;

    Abstract : Reactive oxygen species (ROS) consisting of various oxygen-based free radicals as well as other reactive non-radical species produced in O2-related metabolism or through other processes are involved in the oxidation of such vital biomolecules as DNA, proteins and lipids. The types of oxidation represented here are known to cause many different diseases and disorders in human beings, such as cancer, Alzheimer's disease and ageing. READ MORE
