Aerosol size distributions from ferrous foundry cupola furnaces vary depending on semicontinuous process dynamics, time along the tap-to-tap cycle, dilution ratio, and the physical and chemical nature of the charge and fuel. All of these factors result in a highly time-dependent emission of particulate matter (PM) 2.5 pm or less in aerodynamic diameter(More)
Concentrations of n-alkanes and PAHs in the visceral mass of the marine winkle Osilinus attratus taken from three locations on the southeast coast of Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain) over a two-year period, were evaluated at monthly intervals in order to assess if this small marine winkle may be used as bioindicador organism. Factor analysis and cluster(More)
Speciation of iron in milk was carried out by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and electrothermal atomic absorption spectrometry (ETAAS). Milk whey was obtained and low molecular weight protein separation was performed by size exclusion chromatography (SEC) with a TSK Gel SW glass guard (Waters) pre-column and a TSK-Gel G2000 glass (Toso Haas)(More)
Size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and flame atomic absorption spectroscopy (FAAS) were used for the separation of metal-containing species in milk whey. After milk ultracentrifugation, the sample was injected into a TSK-Gel G2000 glass column and eluted with 0.2M NH4NO3-NH3, pH 6.7. Low molecular weight proteins were fractionated, and the fractions were(More)
This method will allow the determination of bound copper to low relative molecular mass compounds in milk. The milk whey obtained by ultracentrifugation was submitted to fractionation by size exclusion chromatography (SEC) on a TSK-Gel2000 (Toso Haas) column with a mobile phase of 0.2 M NH4NO3 + NH3, pH 6.7. Fractions of effluent corresponding to the(More)
The purpose of the present paper is to develop an easy and quick in vitro method to compare copper availability from breast milk and infant formulas. This study focuses on the differences caused by the use of pH 2.0 (adult gastric pH) or pH 5.0 (newborn gastric pH) in the first stage of the enzymolysis. pH affects Cu solubility, a possible estimator of the(More)
Fumonisins are produced by several fungal species that are common contaminants of maize. The most abundant naturally occurring fumonisin, fumonisin B1 (FB1), has been shown to induce several animal disease syndromes. The development of analytical methods is therefore important. A new method is described that integrates extraction and purification of maize(More)
