  1. 1. Cobalt in the hard metal production industry : exposure via inhalation and skin and the inflammatory response in human keratinocytes

    Author : Maria Klasson; Eva Särndahl; Håkan Westberg; Magnus Lindberg; Alexander Persson; Kristina Jakobsson; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cobalt; cobalt chloride; skin; HaCaT; in vitro; cell viability; pro-inflammatory cytokines; NLRP3 inflammasome;

    Abstract : Cobalt is a strong sensitizer and can cause contact allergy upon both direct contact or from airborne exposure on the skin. In the skin, keratinocytes are the first cells to come in contact with the metal and will react and respond to the danger by triggering an alarm system resulting in an inflammatory response in the skin.

  2. 2. Cobalt and Nickel Bioavailability for Biogas Formation

    Author : Jenny Gustavsson; Bo Svensson; Anna Karlsson; Piet N.L. Lens; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : 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

  3. 3. Fischer-Tropsch Synthesis over Cobalt-based Catalysts for BTL applications

    Author : Matteo Lualdi; Christofer Leygraf; Roy Johnsen; KTH; []

    Abstract : Fischer-Tropsch synthesis is a commercial technology that allows converting synthesis gas, a mixture of CO and H2, into fuels and chemicals. This process could be one of the actors in the reduction of oil dependency of the transportation sector. READ MORE

  4. 4. Deactivation of cobalt and nickel catalysts in Fischer-Tropsch synthesis and methanation

    Author : Javier Barrientos; Magali Boutonnet; Claude Mirodatos; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; cobalt; nickel; Fischer-Tropsch synthesis; methanation; deactivation; carbonyl; sintering; carbon fomation. sulfur; poisoning; Chemical Engineering; Kemiteknik;

    Abstract :             A potential route for converting different carbon sources (coal, natural gas and biomass) into synthetic fuels is the transformation of these raw materials into synthesis gas (CO and H2), followed by a catalytic step which converts this gas into the desired fuels. The present thesis has focused on two catalytic steps: Fischer-Tropsch synthesis (FTS) and methanation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Cobalt-Chromium alloys in fixed prosthodontics

    Author : Maria Kassapidou; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; prosthodontics; cobalt-chromium; manufacturing techniques;

    Abstract : Gold and its alloys have been the dominant framework materials in metal-ceramic constructions when substantial loss of tooth substance or missing teeth needs to be replaced. However, base metal alloys, such as cobalt-chromium (Co-Cr), have been introduced due to increased gold price. READ MORE
