Hazelnut is one of the most important items in high-quality food products from Piedmont, Italy. The 'Tonda Gentile delle Langhe' (TGL) variety is acknowledged all over the world as the best one, and it is particularly appreciated when used to provide flavor in chocolate products. Authentication and/or traceability studies must therefore be developed to(More)
The traceability and authentication of milk were studied using trace and ultratrace elements as chemical markers. Among these variables, the group of lanthanides resulted in being particularly useful for this purpose as a result of their homogeneous distribution inside milk, which showed on the contrary to be intrinsically inhomogeneous from the elemental(More)
Numerous studies on molluscs have been carried out to clarify the physiological roles of haemolymph serum proteins and haemocytes. However, little is known about the presence and functional role of the serum metabolites. In this study, Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) was used to assess whether changes of the metabolic profile of Mytilus galloprovincialis(More)
High nitrogen concentration in wastewaters requires treatments to prevent the risks of eutrophication in rivers, lakes and coastal waters. The use of constructed wetlands is one of the possible approaches to lower nitrate concentration in wastewaters. Beyond supporting the growth of the bacteria operating denitrification, plants can directly take up(More)
Sulfonated aromatic pollutants such as Armstrong's acid, or 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonic acid (NDS), are recalcitrant to environmental breakdown and microbial treatment. This study investigated the effects of H(2)O(2) concentration, pH, microwave (MW) power and irradiation time on the oxidative degradation of NDS in aqueous solutions. The formation of hydroxyl(More)
Sulfonated aromatic pollutants such as 1,5-naphthalenedisulfonic acid (NDS or Armstrong's acid) are persistent compounds and thus resist environmental breakdown and microbial treatment. This study investigated the photo-oxidative degradation of such a persistent polar pollutant in the absence and presence of H2O2. The degradation of aqueous NDS solutions by(More)
