A fully-integrated microsensor chip allows continuous monitoring of concentrations of blood gases (pH, pO/sub 2/, pCO/sub 2/), ions, and biomolecules, and a conductometric measurement. The chip monitors 7 different chemical properties and includes temperature control and an EPROM. It occupies 25.7 mm/sup 2/ in a standard 1.2 /spl mu/m CMOS process including(More)
The intertidal benthic macrofauna of the Schelde estuary (The Netherlands and Belgium) was sampled in late autumn of 1990 at 50 stations along the whole salinity gradient (between Vlissingen and Dendermonde), including the freshwater tidal part. All stations were situated in sheltered areas with a relatively muddy sediment. Species richness, diversity and(More)
Differentiation between human and animal remains by means of analysis of volatile compounds released during decomposition is impossible since no volatile marker(s) specific for human decomposition has been established today. Hence, the identification of such a marker for human decomposition would represent great progression for the discovery of buried(More)
Ferroelectric random access memories (FeRAMs) combine very attractive properties such as low-voltage operation, fast write and nonvolatility. However, unlike Flash memories, FeRAMs are difficult to scale along with the CMOS technology roadmap, mainly because of the decrease of available signal with decreasing cell area. One solution for further scaling is(More)
The concentration patterns of indigenous zinc and of zinc and cobalt absorbed from radiotracer solutions have been measured via flameless AA and radioactivity assay, respectively, in individual human head hairs. Patterns for indigenous zinc were found to be relatively flat and featureless. Patterns for absorbed zinc (like those for indigenous and absorbed(More)
Single head hairs from several subjects have been soaked in arsenic radiotracer solution and the arsenic absorbed on 2-mm hair segments has been determined by radioactivity assay. The absorption patterns were characterized for some subjects by regions of high uptake where (in other hairs from the same subject) regions of low uptake of copper and zinc were(More)
A stable Periodic Mesoporous Organosilica (PMO) with accessible sulfonic acid functionalities is prepared via a one-pot-synthesis and is used as solid support for highly active catalysts, consisting of gold(I)-N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) complexes. The gold complexes are successfully immobilized on the nanoporous hybrid material via a straightforward(More)
