  1. 1. Computational studies of nickel catalysed reactions relevant for hydrocarbon gasification

    University dissertation from Borås : Högskolan i Borås

    Author : Abas Mohsenzadeh; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; DFT; H2O; CO; adsorption; dissociation; formyl; hydrocarbon combustion; hydrocarbon synthesis; water gas shift; gasification; Ni 111 ; Ni 110 ; Ni 100 ; Resursåtervinning; Resource Recovery;

    Abstract : Sustainable energy sources are of great importance, and will become even more important in the future. Gasification of biomass is an important process for utilization of biomass, as a renewable energy carrier, to produce fuels and chemicals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Environmental filtering of bacteria in low productivity habitats

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Inga Richert; Stefan Bertilsson; Annelie Wendeberg; Lise Øvreås; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bacteria; environmental filtering; diversity; ecosystem service; hydrocarbon utilization; Southern Ocean; sediment; Biologi med inriktning mot mikrobiologi; Biology with specialization in Microbiology;

    Abstract : Microbes fulfill important ecosystem functions by contributing as drivers of global nutrient cycles. Their distribution patterns are mainly controlled by environmental heterogeneities. So far, little is known about the mode of action of particular environmental drivers on the microbiota, particularly in low productivity habitats. READ MORE

  3. 3. Utilization of Low Voltage D-T Neutron Generators in Neutron Physics Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Somsorn Singkarat; [1995]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; D-T neutron generator; double-differential cross-section DDX ; n-1H scattering; directional neutron detector; time-of-flight method; natural iron; scintillation fibers; neutron energy converter;

    Abstract : In a small nuclear laboratory of a developing country a low voltage D-T neutron generator can be a very useful scientific apparatus. Such machines have been used successfully for more than 40 years in teaching and scientific research. READ MORE

  4. 4. Design and analysis of solid oxide electrolysis-based systems for synthetic liquid fuels production

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Abstract : During the past decades, considerable attention has been dedicated to renewable energy systems. This is due to the increased awareness regarding greenhouse gas emissions as well as limits of the future availability and reliability of conventional energy and power systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. RNA in model lipid membranes - interactions in bulk and at surfaces

    University dissertation from Department of Chemistry, Lund University

    Author : Agnes Michanek; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ssRNA; RNA origami; dsDNA; selfassembly phospholipids; model membranes; monolayer; QCM-D; DSC; Neutron reflectometry; hydrophobic interaction; cationic surfactants; sphingosine; phase behavior;

    Abstract : The work presented in the thesis “RNA in model lipid membranes- interactions in bulk and at surfaces” aims to characterize the interaction between RNA and model membranes with different properties as well as to determine if ssRNA associate with model membranes in different ways. Several techniques have been used to characterize these systems, including quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring (QCM-D), Langmuir film balance in combination with neutron reflectometry and fluorescence microscopy as well as differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) and isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC).
