The effects of the herbicide, clomazone, on acetylcholinesterase (AChE), catalase and TBARS formation in teleost fish (Rhamdia quelen) were studied. The fish were exposed to 0.5 or 1.0 mg L(-1) of clomazone for 12, 24, 48, 96 and 192 h. After 192 h of exposure period, fish were transferred to clean water and kept in the same for 192 h to study the recovery(More)
The effects of 2,4-D (1 or 10 mg/L) on acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and metabolic parameters were evaluated in piava (Leporinus obtusidens) after 96 h. AChE activity was significantly reduced in the brain at a concentration of 10 mg/L and in the muscle at both concentrations tested. Muscle glycogen and lactate were significantly reduced for both 2,4-D(More)
In this article, we study the numerical approximation of the solution of the Cauchy problem for a multidimensional linear parabolic PDE of second order, with unbounded time and space-dependent coefficients. The PDE free term and the initial data are also allowed to grow. Under the assumption that the PDE does not degenerate, using the L 2 theory of(More)
We study the space discretization of the Cauchy problem for a second order linear parabolic PDE, with one spatial dimension and unbounded time and space-dependent coefficients. The equation free term and the initial data are also allowed to grow. Under a nondegeneracy assumption, we consider the PDE solvability in the framework of the variational approach,(More)
A method is described for the determination of clomazone residues in surface water by high-performance liquid chromatography with UV detection. The method involves solid-phase extraction with C18 extraction tubes. Clomazone was separated on a C18 column with a mobile phase of methanol-water (65:35, v/v) at pH 4.0 and a flow-rate of 1.0 ml/min. After(More)
We study the space discretization of the Cauchy problem for a second order linear parabolic PDE, with one spatial dimension and unbounded time and space-dependent coefficients. The PDE free term and the initial data are also allowed to grow. Under the assumption that the PDE does not degenerate, the problem's weak solution is approximated in space, with(More)
The aim of this work was to investigate the kinetics of removal of clomazone herbicide from an aqueous solution by electrocoagulation. The experiments were performed in a cylindrical batch reactor with six aluminum electrodes in monopolar mode, arranged in series and connected to a digital DC power. The aqueous solution (tap water + clomazone) with initial(More)
We study the space discretization of the Cauchy problem for a second order linear parabolic PDE, with one spacial dimension and unbounded time and space-dependent coefficients. The equation free term and the initial data are also allowed to grow. Under a nondegeneracy assumption, we consider the PDE solvability in the framework of the variational approach,(More)
A method for the determination of five sedatives and 14 β-blocker residues in swine, bovine and equine kidney was validated. Samples were extracted with acetonitrile and purified using dispersive solid phase extraction (d-SPE) with Celite 545 with subsequent analysis by LC-MS/MS. A simplified protocol was applied to validate the method scope extension to(More)
Herbicides are very effective at eliminating weed and are largely used in rice paddy around the world, playing a fundamental role in maximizing yield. Therefore, considering the flooded environment of rice paddies, it is necessary to understand the side effects on non-target species. Field experiment studies were carried out during two rice growing seasons(More)
