The heat treatment of softwood (i.e. spruce, pine, fir, and larch) may result in significant colour changes. During this study Scots pine and spruce samples were steamed and analysed for their altered hue and lightness. Treatments included: 0 to 22 days of steaming time at a temperature range of 70 to 100°C. The outcome included a variety of colours between(More)
Four important hungarian common carp (Cyprinus carpio l.) breeds (attala mirror, attala scaled, hortobágy scaled and Szeged mirror) harvested from different fish farms were analysed in this study. Main body indices, slaughter characteristics, fillet fat content, and conventional fish flesh quality characteristics were measured and compared. the slaughter(More)
The validity of the Kubelka–Munk (K-M) theory was investigated to determine the IR absorption spectra of wood based on diffuse reflection infrared Fourier transform (DRIFT) measurements taken on photodegraded samples. After analysing plenty of DRIFT spectra of wood and examining the shape of the K-M equation, it can be concluded that the measured K-M(More)
Interpretation of high resolution images provided by localization-based microscopy techniques is a challenge due to imaging artefacts that can be categorized by their origin. They can be introduced by the optical system, by the studied sample or by the applied algorithms. Some artefacts can be eliminated via precise calibration procedures, others can be(More)
The Dushman reaction taking place after the abrupt change of the absorbance in the Landolt reaction was followed by monitoring the concentration of triiodide spectrophotometrically in buffered solutions. The joint evaluation of the experimental data on the kinetic system (Landolt) and subsystem (Dushman) has revealed that the inverse of the Landolt(More)

Two conifers and two deciduous wood species were irradiated by strong UV emitter mercury lamp at elevated temperatures up to 160 °C. Other series of samples were treated in the same chamber at the same temperatures but without light. Results showed that UV light irradiation produced much greater discolouration at elevated temperatures above 80 °C than at(More)
The thiosulfate-iodate reaction has been studied spectrophotometrically in slightly acidic medium at 25.0 +/- 0.1 degrees C in acetate/acetic acid buffer by monitoring the absorbance at 468 nm at the isosbestic point of iodine-triiodide ion system. The formation of iodine after the Landolt time follows a rather complex kinetic behavior depending on the pH(More)
It has been clearly shown that not only tetrathionate but also pentathionate or even higher polythionates is formed in the oxidation of thiosulfate by hypochlorous acid in a slightly acidic medium. In thiosulfate excess, the absorbance-time curves registered at 250 nm may go through a maximum followed by a minimum, suggesting the presence of a short-lived(More)
