  1. 1. Cobalt and Nickel Bioavailability for Biogas Formation

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Jenny Gustavsson; Bo Svensson; Anna Karlsson; Piet N.L. Lens; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Biogas production; bioavailability; cobalt; nickel; sequential extraction; S XANES; 454-pyrosequencing.; Biogasproduktion; biotillgänglighet; kobolt; nickel; sekventiell extraktion; S XANES; 454-pyrosekvensering;

    Abstract : Supplementation of trace metals such as Co and Ni may improve anaerobic digestion of organic material for biogas formation. Which trace metals that are needed and the quantity to apply are, at least partly, related to metal speciation and bioavailability. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bioavailability of organic contaminants in a changing climate

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköping University Electronic Press

    Author : Matyas Ripszam; Peter Haglund; Roland Kallenborn; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; climate change; organic contaminants; sorption; dissolved organic carbon; bioavailability;

    Abstract : The effects of predicted future climate change was investigated with special emphasis on the association of organic contaminants with dissolved organic carbon (DOC) in the Baltic Sea.An automated method was developed for the measurements of DOC - water distribution constants at realistic DOC concentrations in brackish water.

  3. 3. Fermentation of quinoa, canihua and amaranth to degrade phytate and improve mineral bioavailability

    University dissertation from Department of Food Technology, Lund University

    Author : Vanesa Castro-Alba; [2019-09-27]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Quinoa; Canihua; Amaranth; Iron; Zinc; Calcium; Phytate; Fermentation; Accessibility; Bioavailability;

    Abstract : Plant-based diets are the main source of nutrients for vegetarians worldwide and for low-income inhabitants of developing countries, such as in rural areas of Bolivia. These diets may contain high levels of mineral inhibitors such as phytate that impairs mineral absorption in the human gut. READ MORE

  4. 4. Extraction of PCBs from Sediments: Towards Bioavailability Assessment Based on Supercritical Fluid Extraction

    University dissertation from Department of Analytical Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Tobias Nilsson; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Analytisk kemi; Analytical chemistry; Bioavailability; PCB; SFE;

    Abstract : Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) pose serious threats to our global environment. These compounds have high chemical and biological stability and they are also very lipophilic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Selenium Compounds and Antioxidant Capacity in Bovine Milk. Studies on Glutathione Peroxidase, Bioavailability and Electrochemical Techniques

    University dissertation from Pure and Applied Biochemistry, Lund University

    Author : Jun Chen; [2002]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; General biomedical sciences; Biomedicinska vetenskaper allmänt ; Kemiteknik och kemisk teknologi; Chemical technology and engineering; Livsmedelsteknik; Food and drink technology; amperometry; voltammetry; antioxidant capacity; ileostomy; bioavailability; glutathione peroxidase; bovine milk; selenium;

    Abstract : The efficacy and function of antioxidants have been intensively studied in foods and other biological systems in recent decades. This thesis concerns different aspects of the antioxidant properties of bovine milk, with emphasis on measurement of the total antioxidant capacity (TAC), the activity of the selenium-containing glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx), and the bioavailability of selenium from bovine milk in humans.
