A supercritical carbon dioxide extraction method to obtain selectively volatile compounds of saffron without sample destruction has been developed. The influence of both pressure and temperature was studied, 20 MPa and 100 degrees C being the best conditions to extract the total safranal content. A decrease in supercritical fluid density was shown to be a(More)
Samples of bivalve mussels Tagelus dombeii and Semelle sólida (Navajuelas and Almejas chilenas, respectively) caught at different sites along the coast of Chile were analysed for Cu, Cd, Hg and Pb content. The analyses were performed on samples of fresh and canned products, classified according to their length. Each Navajuela sample was divided into two(More)
Near-infrared transmittance (NIT) spectroscopy was used to predict the percentage in weight of the fat, dry matter, protein and fat/dry matter contents in Zamorano cheeses, protected with a Designation of Origin by the European Union. A total of 42 cheeses submitted to official control were analysed by reference methods. Samples were scanned (850-1050 nm)(More)
An efficient electrocatalyst comprising inexpensive and earth-abundant materials for the oxygen evolution reaction (OER) is crucial for the development of water electrolysis. In this work, in-situ addition of cobalt/molybdenum ions to the electrolytic manganese dioxide has been shown to be beneficial for the OER in acid solution as its overpotential(More)
Chile is a well known producer and exporter of shell fish. These seafoods, like other specimens of marine origin, are susceptible to environmental and other contamination by trace elements, including toxicants. Therefore, adequate analytical quality assurance is mandatory before accepting analytical results. In this context, the use of at least two(More)
