Hydrogen sulfide emissions from the smelt dissolving tank area
of some kraft pulp mills exceed environmental limitations. There are
two main factors to consider in determining the cause of these emissions:
chemical equilibria and rate processes. This investigation
considers the chemical equilibria in the smelt shatter jet area (system
The fungitoxicity of acetone extracts from the xylem of Fusarium
wilt disease resistant tomato plants (cv. Jefferson) inoculated with Fusarium
oxysporum f. sp. lycopersici was greatly influenced by environmental
factors. Extracts obtained from plants 1 h after watering were 4-times
more toxic than extracts from plants subjected to water stress...
This investigation attempts to demonstrate that the development
of the early 20th century biological enterprise involved a striving for a
unifying theoretical perspective. A skeletal substantiation of this is
given by an overview of early 20th century biology in which some
biologists began recognizing a multiplicity of different orders of...
This study Is a rhetorical analysis of ten documents of Joseph
Smith, Jr's. early revelations spanning the period of 1829 to 1831
to determine the extent to which he used demagogic rhetoric in pursuit
of his goals. A definition of demagoguery is provided and is
applied in an analysis of...
While hydrophobic surfaces coated with the poly[ethylene oxide]-poly[propylene oxide]-poly[ethylene oxide] (PEO-PPO-PEO) surfactant Pluronic® F108 are highly resistant to plasma protein adsorption, the antimicrobial peptide nisin has been observed to adsorb in multilayer quantities at such surfaces, and the PEO chains themselves suggested to inhibit nisin exchange by blood proteins. But...
Infections in hospitals account for over 100,000 deaths per year. These infections occur at the
hospital from complications following bacterial adhesion to intravenous catheters, coronary
stents and other implanted devices. Another common problem is protein adsorption to the
surface of the device and subsequent blood clotting. Methods for combating these...
This thesis serves as a literature review of dashboards that calls for further research in the area of Feedback Mechanisms (FMs). A dashboard, for the purposes of this paper is a display used to provide performance feedback to a user. An FM is the mechanism used in a dashboard to...
