  1. 1. Volatile organic compounds from microorganisms identification and health effects

    University dissertation from Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Author : Anna-Sara Claeson; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : microorganisms; building materials; VOCs; MVOCs; amines; LC-MS MS; exposure; perceived air quality; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Abstract : Damp building materials are subjected to degradation processes due tomoisture and also microbial growth, with both of these giving rise to emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that may contribute to indoor air health problems. The overall aim of this thesis was to investigate emissions of reactive and non-reactive VOCs from damp building materials and from the microorganisms growing on them, and also to investigate the possible health impact of these compounds.

  2. 2. Metal accumulation by microorganisms : Characteristics and implications for soil systems

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Maria Ledin; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1994]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : The aim of the present study was to investigate the potential role of microbial accumulation in the mobility of metals in soil systems. As a first approach, the metal-accumulating properties of three bacterial species were studied to determine to what extent and under what conditions the accumulation occurred. READ MORE

    Abstract : Heterotrophic microorganisms are important for the flow of carbon and nutrients in the sea. Bacteria, nanoflagellates and ciliates are relevant components of the pelagic food web. In order to be able to predict the outcome of e.g. READ MORE

  5. 5. In vivo evaluations of the neutralizing effect of a hydroxyl ion-releasing resin composite and a prophylactic gel on plaque acidogenicity measured by the microtouch method

    University dissertation from Umeå : Odontologi

    Author : Anitha Persson; Umeå universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; caries; clinical; buffering; elderly; plaque pH; resin composite; restorations; microorganisms; ODONTOLOGY; ODONTOLOGI;

    Abstract : The prevalence of dental caries has decreased dramatically in most developed countries since the sixties and the number of remaining teeth in adults has increased during the last decades. Elderly as a group will during aging become an increasing risk group for caries. READ MORE
