  1. 1. Understanding Crustal Volatiles Provenance,  Processes and Implications

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Lara S. Blythe; Valentin Troll; Ralf Gertisser; [2012]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; crustal volatiles; helium; carbon; volcanic gases and fluids; xeno-pumice; magma-carbonate interaction; upper crustal contamination;

    Abstract : Knowledge of the provenance of crustal volatiles and the processes by which they are released is extremely important for the dynamics of magmatic systems. Presented here are the results of multiple investigations, which aim to understand magmatic volatile contamination from contrasting but complementary perspectives. READ MORE

  2. 2. Volatiles of Conifer Seedlings Compositions and Resistance Markers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Astrid Kännaste; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Anders Backlund; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Conifers; Norway spruce; Scots pine; Nalepella; Oligonychus ununguis; green leaf volatiles; terpenes; aromatics; benzenoids; SPME; induced defense reaction; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi;

    Abstract : Pine weevils cause major damage to newly planted conifer seedlings in reforestation areas. However, recent findings indicate that small (“mini”) seedlings, planted at the age of 7-10 weeks, are gnawed less by pine weevils than the larger, conventionally planted seedlings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Chemical defence in Norway spruce

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Marie Danielsson; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Anders Backlund; [2011]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; volatiles; terpenes; green leaf volatiles; stilbenes; stress response; nepetalactone; Picea abies; Hylobius abietis; Cinara pilicornis; Oligonychus ununguis; Heterobasidion annosum; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : Norway spruce (Picea abies) responds to stress by biosynthesis of chemical substances, which can deter invading insects or pathogens. Some of these substances are volatile and can be emitted to the surroundings while others are accumulated within the tree. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stress Related Emissions of Norway Spruce Plants

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Kemi

    Author : Marie Pettersson; Anna-Karin Borg-Karlson; Torkel Berglund; Åsa Emmer; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; volatiles; terpenes; green leaf volatiles; stress response; nepetalactone; SPME; Picea abies; Hylobius abietis; Cinara pillicornis; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : The interactions between plants and insects are mediated by volatile molecules. Plants respond to stress by biosynthesis of chemical substances which can deter invading insects or pathogens. Some of these substances are volatile and are emitted to the surroundings and may attract or repel insects. READ MORE

  5. 5. Solid-Phase Microextraction in Polymer Analysis - Extraction of Volatiles from Virgin and Recycled Polyamide 6.6

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Fiber- och polymerteknologi

    Author : Mikael Gröning; Minna Hakkarainen; Stephen Kelley; [2004]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Chemistry; polymer; polyamide 6.6; volatiles; emissions; degradation; quantitation; Kemi; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi;

    Abstract : The extraction and quantitative analysis of low molar mass compounds in polymers is an analytical challenge. It is also important from a practical point of view because the low molar mass compounds in time will migrate from the polymers into the surrounding environment. READ MORE
