  1. 1. The significance of ethylene and ETHYLENE RESPONSE FACTORS in wood formation of hybrid aspen

    Author : Bernard Wessels; Hannele Tuominen; Judith Felten; Totte Niittylä; Kurt Fagerstedt; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ethylene; wood formation; hybrid aspen; Populus; ETHYLENE RESPONSE FACTOR; ERF85; ERF139; cambium; lignin; xylem expansion; secondary cell wall; tension wood; cambial derivative cell fate; vessel element; time-lapse photography; molekylär bioteknik inst f nat vet biokemi ; molecular biotechnology dept of biochem ; genetik; Genetics; Physiological Botany; fysiologisk botanik;

    Abstract : The woody tissues serve to stabilise plants, store nutrients and translocate water and minerals. The formation of wood, or ’secondary xylem’, follows a well-defined developmental gradient which is initiated by cell division activity in the vascular cambium. READ MORE

  2. 2. Crosslinking of Ethylene Copolymers

    Author : Magnus Palmlöf; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : dibutyltindilaurate; crosslinking; water; ethylene diene copolymers; peroxide; polyethylene; electron beam; crosslinking density; ethylene vinylsilane copolymers;

    Abstract : The chemical reactions taking place when crosslinking poly(ethylene-co-vinyltrimethoxysilane) (EVS) have been studied. Films of EVS were stored in water at 90 °C or treated at processing temperatures in a tubular oven. The different chemical groups involved in the reactions were then followed by FTIR after different treatment times. READ MORE

  3. 3. A study of ethylene production via the 2-oxoglutarate dependent pathway in S. cerevisiae

    Author : Nina Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ethylene forming enzyme; Ethylene; respiration rate; Saccharomyces cerevisiae; cultivation; production; nitrogen metabolism; 2-oxoglutarate; enzyme engineering; metabolic modeling;

    Abstract : The detrimental effect of the petroleum industry on the environment combined with the threat of peak oil has driven the exploration for alternative strategies to produce traditional petrochemicals. Biotechnological production could be an alternative, using microorganisms to convert renewable feedstocks into desired products. READ MORE

  5. 5. Combustion dynamics and melt dripping of ethylene-acrylate copolyer composites

    Author : Roland H. Krämer; Ulf W. Gedde; Mats Jonsson; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; methacrylic acid; ethylene; calcium carbonate; ionomer; nanoparticles; intumescence; halogen-free; flame retardant; melt dripping; Polymer chemistry; Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The degradation and combustion of blends of ethylene-acryalte copolymer with calcium carbonate and silicone were studied by a combination of flammability tests, in-situ measurements and analytical experiments. Compounds of poly(ethylene-co-methacrylic acid) blended with precipitated calcium carbonate nanoparticles were prepared. READ MORE
