  1. 1. Single fluid inclusion analysis using ToF-SIMS : Implications for ancient Earth biodiversiy and paleoenvironment studies

    Author : Sandra Siljeström; Jukka Lausmaa; Andrew Steele; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ToF-SIMS; time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry; fluid inclusions; biomarkers; hopanes; steranes; early life; paleoenvironment; oil; eukaryotes; Earth sciences; Geovetenskap; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : When and how life first emerged on the Earth is an area of intense research. Signs of the first life on Earth, including morphological fossils, are scarce and hard to interpret. An alternative approach is to study organic biomarkers, which are molecular fossils commonly considered as bona fide biosignatures. READ MORE

  2. 2. Application of imaging TOF-SIMS in cell and tissue research

    Author : Katrin Richter; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : TOF-SIMS; imaging mass spectrometry; cryopreparation; ions; lipids; galactosylceramide; sulfatide; fatty acids;

    Abstract : This thesis is aimed at extending the use of TOF-SIMS (time of flight secondary ion mass spectrometry) as an analytical tool in cell and tissue research. TOF-SIMS is a relatively new method that allows analysis of the chemical composition of sample surfaces. READ MORE

  3. 3. Identification and imaging of lipids in tissues using TOF-SIMS

    Author : Ylva Magnusson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : mass spectrometry; lipids; fatty acids; diacylglycerols; triacylglycerols; TOF-SIMS; adipose tissue; aortic wall; skeletal muscle; obesity; principal component analysis;

    Abstract : Introduction: Normal lipid metabolism in the adipose tissue, skeletal muscle and aortic wall is important for the physiological function of these tissues. Dyslipidemia that is often associated with intake of high energy diet and sedentary lifestyles can lead to the development of insulin resistance and cardiovascular diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. ToF-SIMS as a tool for analysing organic material in geological samples -Fluid inclusions and beyond

    Author : Sandra Siljeström; Jukka Lausmaa; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Organic material; ToF-SIMS; Other earth sciences; Övrig geovetenskap; geokemi; Geochemistry;

    Abstract : In situ analysis of organic material in rocks has potential to answer questions in geochemistry, astro- and geobiology. Recently, successful studies which included in situ analyses of geological samples with time-of-flight secondary ion mass spectrometry (ToF-SIMS) were carried out. READ MORE

  5. 5. Surface Characterisation Using ToF-SIMS, AES and XPS of Silane Films and Organic Coatings Deposited on Metal Substrates

    Author : Ulf Bexell; Mikael Olsson; Sven Erik Hörnström; Åsa Kassman Rudolphi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Materials science; Silanes; Organic films; ToF-SIMS; AES; XPS; Materialvetenskap; Materials science; Teknisk materialvetenskap; materialvetenskap; Materials Science;

    Abstract : This work focuses on the surface and interfacial characterisation of silane films of a non-organofunctional silane, 1,2-bis(triethoxysilyl)ethane (BTSE), and an organofunctional silane, γ-mercaptopropyltrimethoxysilane (γ-MPS), deposited on Al, Zn and Al-43.4Zn-1.6Si (AlZn) alloy coated steel.
