Polar oceans are very susceptible to increased levels of atmospheric CO2 and may act as the world’s largest sink for anthropogenic CO2. Simultaneously, as atmospheric CO2 increases, sea surface temperature rises due to global warming. These two factors are important in regulating microalgal ecophysiology, and it has been suggested that future global changes(More)
The macrocyclic antibiotic, vancomycin, is covalently bonded to LiChrospher diol silica packed columns and evaluated in capillary electrochromatography (CEC) both in the reversed-phase and polar organic mode. Initially, capillaries were packed with 5 microm LiChrospher 100 A diol silica and evaluated in CEC with a reversed-phase biphenyl-pyrene achiral test(More)
Due to climate change, sea ice experiences changes in terms of extent and physical properties. In order to understand how sea ice microbial communities are affected by changes in physicochemical properties of the ice, we used 454-sequencing of 16S and 18S rRNA genes to examine environmental control of microbial diversity and composition in Antarctic sea(More)
Increasing atmospheric CO2 levels are driving changes in the seawater carbonate system, resulting in higher pCO2 and reduced pH (ocean acidification). Many studies on marine organisms have focused on short-term physiological responses to increased pCO2, and few on slow-growing polar organisms with a relative low adaptation potential. In order to recognize(More)
A flow injection analysis (FIA) extraction method has been developed for the analysis of felodipine tablets in connection with dissolution rate testing. The water-soluble oxidation product of felodipine, a pyridine derivative, was extracted into chloroform and measured at 275 nm spectrophotometrically. The FIA-extraction method has been compared with the(More)
This paper reviews the use of supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) as a sample work-up step in the analysis of drugs in various pharmaceutical formulations. Matrices studies include tablets, animal feed, creams, ointments and infusions. As in other fields of analytical chemistry, SFE has proven to be most suitable for comparatively non-polar compounds in(More)
