In saline environments, bread wheat, Triticum aestivum L. (genomes AABBDD), accumulates less Na+ and more K+ in expanding and young leaves than durum wheat, T. turgidum L. (genomes AABB). Higher K+/Na+ ratios in leaves of bread wheat correlate with its higher salt tolerance. Chromosome 4D from bread wheat was shown in previous work to play an important role(More)
The enzymatic oxidation of D-glucose to 2-keto-D-glucose (D-arabino-hexos-2-ulose, D-glucosone) is of prospective industrial interest. Pyranose oxidase (POx) from Peniphora gigantea is deactivated during the reaction. To develop a kinetic model including the main reaction and the enzyme inactivation, possible side-reactions of the non-stabilised enzyme with(More)
The low biodegradability and high persistence in environment of POPs (persistent organic pollutants), and especially some of them such as PCBs (polychlorinated biphenyls), make their removal difficult and incomplete in conventional wastewater treatment plants (WWTP). A low-level quasi-continuous release of such pollutants in rivers, fluctuating around or(More)
Genetic diversity of the quality in S. sclarea and development of genotypes with enhanced essential oil (EO) content have been conducted using the varieties of hybrid origin Ambra Plus (AP) and Nataly Clary (NC), both characterised by manifestation of fixed heterosis in a number of quantitative traits, including the content of EO. One hundred and twenty(More)
This paper presents a comparison of several effective methods of deriving the critical feeding conditions for the case of a semi-batch catalytic reactor used for the acetoacetylation of pyrrole with diketene in homogeneous liquid phase. The reaction is known to be of high risk due to the very exothermic (polymerisation) side-reactions involving reactive(More)
