  1. 1. Phase transformation and surface chemistry of secondary iron minerals formed from acid mine drainage

    Author : Jörgen Jönsson; Lars Lövgren; Per Persson; Staffan Sjöberg; Douglas B Kent; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Inorganic chemistry; schwertmannite; goethite; lepidocrocite; acid mine drainage; sulphate; natural organic matter; mineral surface; infrared spectroscopy; EXAFS; XRD; ternary surface complex; copper II ; cadmium II ; lead II ; zinc II ; Oorganisk kemi; Inorganic chemistry; Oorganisk kemi; Inorganic Chemistry; oorganisk kemi;

    Abstract : The mining of sulphidic ore to extract metals such as zinc and copper produces huge quantities of waste material. The weathering and oxidation of the waste produces what is commonly known as Acid Mine Drainage (AMD), a dilute sulphuric acid rich in Fe(II) and heavy metals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Lead(II) as a Tool for Probing RNA Structure in vivo

    Author : Magnus Lindell; Gerhart Wagner; Roland Hartmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Molecular biology; lead II cleavage; RNA structure; in vivo probing; Molekylärbiologi; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Abstract : Chemical modification and limited enzymatic hydrolysis are powerful methods to obtain detailed information on the structure and dynamics of RNAs in solution. In the work presented here I have taken advantage of the properties of the divalent metal ion lead(II) to establish it as a new probe for investigating the structure of RNA in vivo. READ MORE

  3. 3. Lead exposure in indigenous children of the Peruvian Amazon : seeking the hidden source,venturing into participatory research

    Author : Cynthia Anticona Huaynate; Miguel San Sebastian; Ingvar Bergdahl; Mary Jean Brown; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; lead exposure; children; indigenous; Corrientes river; participatory research; Peruvian Amazon; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : Introduction. In 2006, a Peruvian environmental agency reported the presence of elevated blood lead levels (BLLs) in indigenous communities of the Corrientes river basin. This is a territory in the Peruvian Amazon where oil activity has been associated with serious environmental effects, with impact on an ongoing social conflict. READ MORE

  4. 4. Laboratory and Stellar Spectra in High Resolution: Studies of Fe, Pt and Tl in Peculiar Stars

    Author : Gabriele Kalus; Fysiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; high-resolution spectroscopy; hyperfine structure; peculiar stars; iron; platinum; lead; upsilon Sagittarii; HR7775; chi Lupi; isotope shift; Atomic and molecular physics; Atom- och molekylärfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Kalus;

    Abstract : The near-infrared spectrum of upsilon Sagittarii has been registered using the SOFIN high resolution spectrometer on the Nordic Optic Telescope, La Palma. For the first time 4f-5g transitions of Fe II in any astrophysical spectrum have been identified. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adjuncts to the Conventional 12-Lead ECG: Assessment of High-Frequency QRS Components and Additional Leads

    Author : Elin Trägårdh; Lund Klinisk fysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; heart disease; Physiology; Fysiologi; Cardiovascular system; Kardiovaskulära systemet; myocardial infarction; 16-lead ECG; electrocardiogram; 24-lead ECG; HF-QRS;

    Abstract : The standard 12-lead electrocardiogram (ECG) is one of the most commonly used methods for diagnosing heart disease. Standard ECG is not always optimal, however, and new ECG methods can provide additional information. Analysis of high-frequency QRS components (HF-QRS) has been shown to increase the diagnostic performance of the ECG. READ MORE
