Periodate oxidation and subsequent reductive amination with propargylamine was adopted for the controlled functionalization of amylose with alkyne groups, whereas ATRP polymerization was exploited to obtain end-(α)- or end-(ω)-azide functionalized poly(meth)acrylates to be used as "click" reagents in Cu(I) catalyzed azide-alkyne [3 + 2] dipolar(More)
Earlier studies identified large between-herd variation in estimated lactation curve parameters from test-day milk yield and milk composition records collected in Ragusa province, Italy. The objective of this study was to identify sources of variation able to explain these between-herd differences in milk production curves, by estimating associations of(More)
The objective of this study was to examine the effect of the chemical composition of a total mixed ration (TMR) tested quarterly from March 2006 through December 2008 for milk, fat, and protein yield curves for 27 herds in Ragusa, Sicily. Before this study, standard yield curves were generated on data from 241,153 test-day records of 9,809 animals from 42(More)
We present an investigation of the main chemical and physico-chemical properties of a graft copolymer of amylose and poly(n-butyl methacrylate), Am-g-PBMA, amphiphilic and able to self-assemble in water, prepared by coupling end azide-functionalized PBMA and alkyne-functionalized amylose under convenient click conditions. A deep knowledge of these(More)
The problem of the prophylaxis of post-operative phlebitis and pulmonary embolism, which may sometimes be fatal, has received considerable attention in recent medical literature. The combined experience of the Division of Orthopaedics and Traumatology and the Division of Vascular Surgery of the United Hospitals of Bergamo in the prevention of these(More)
