  1. 1. Carbon Dioxide in Inland Waters : Drivers and Mechanisms Across Spatial and Temporal Scales

    Author : Anna Cecilia Nydahl; Gesa A. Weyhenmeyer; Marguerite Xenopoulos; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; carbon dioxide; dissolved organic carbon; inland water; lake; stream; groundwater; mesocosm; carbonate system; carbon; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Inland waters are an essential component of the global carbon cycle as they are very active sites for carbon transformation processes. Much of this carbon is transformed into the greenhouse gas carbon dioxide (CO2) and emitted into the atmosphere. READ MORE

  2. 2. Carbon Emissions from Western Siberian Inland Waters

    Author : Svetlana Serikova; Jan Karlsson; Oleg S. Pokrovsky; Hjalmar Laudon; Peter Raymond; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon; carbon dioxide; methane; carbon emissions; river; lake; inland waters; permafrost; Siberia; Limnology; limnologi;

    Abstract : Inland waters (i.e. rivers, streams, lakes, ponds) emit carbon (C) into the atmosphere. The magnitude of global inland water C emission has been estimated to equal the global ocean C sink, thus making inland waters an important component of the global C cycle. READ MORE

  3. 3. Carbon Nitride : Characterization and Protein Interactions

    Author : Torun Berlind; Hans Arwin; Pentti Tengvall; Hans Hultman; Thomas E. Tiwald; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns synthesis and characterization of carbon-based materials and theinvestigation of the possible use, of a selection of these materials, in biomedicalapplications. Protein adsorption and blood plasma tests were used for this purposeutilizing a surface sensitive technique called spectroscopic ellipsometry. READ MORE

  4. 4. Nanostructured carbon-based thin films : prediction and design

    Author : Cecilia Goyenola; Gueorgui K. Gueorguiev; Lars Hultman; Sven Stafström; Yury Gogotsi; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; carbon; carbon-based; thin films; fullerene-like; modeling; dft;

    Abstract : Carbon-based thin films are a vast group of materials of great technological importance. Thanks to the different bonding options for carbon, a large variety of structures (from amorphous to nanostructured) can be achieved in the process of film synthesis. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lowcoordinated Silicon and Hypercoordinated Carbon : Structure and Stability of Silicon Analogs of Alkenes and Carbon Analogs of Silicates

    Author : Anders M. Eklöf; Henrik Ottosson; Sten Lunell; Thomas Müller; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; silenes; zwitterionic silenes; silenolates; reverse polarization; natural resonance theory; hypervalent carbon; hypercoordinated carbon; thermolysis; lowcoordinated silicon; Organic chemistry; Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Quantum chemical studies on lowcoordinated group 14-16 compounds have been performed. This thesis focuses particularly on silenes influenced by reverse Siδ-=Cδ+ bond polarization. Hypercoordinated carbon compounds are also studied. READ MORE
