The use of SPME-GC-MS in the analysis of flavor of virgin olive oil
The results of analysis of virgin olive oil using SPME-GC-MS were different from those from previous studies. In the headspace of virgin olive oil, not only ethanol, 1-hexanol, (E)-2-hexenal,Expand

Degradation of steam-exploded lignin from beech by using Fenton's reagent
Abstract Steam-exploded lignin from beech was obtained from a bench apparatus and fully characterized. The treatment of this lignin with hydrogen peroxide and ferrous sulfate (1.5, 5.8, 11.65, andExpand

Singlet oxygen degradation of lignin: a GC–MS study on the residual products of the singlet oxygen degradation of a steam exploded lignin from beech
Abstract The steam exploded lignin from beech obtained with log R0 = 3.42 was characterized by using elemental analysis, UV, and NMR spectroscopy. The irradiation of this lignin inExpand

Characterization of virgin olive oils from Basilicata by using 1H NMR and SPME-GC-MS
Five samples of virgin olive oils deriving from Corleto Perticara were analyzed by using 1H NMR spectroscopy and SPME-GC-MS. Fatty acids are mainly due to the presence of saturated, monounsaturated,Expand

Oxidative degradation of olive oil mill waste water
The treatment of diluted olive oil mill waste water with Fenton's reagent reduces COD. The reaction followed a zero order kinetics' The reaction needs to use large amounts of reagents to have anExpand
AGRONOMICAL AND HYGIENIC-HEALTH QUALITY OF DURUM WHEAT PRODUCTIONS FROM DIFFERENT MEDITERRANEAN ENVIRONMENTS UNDER ORGANIC AND CONVENTIONAL CROPPING
In 2009/2010, eight durum wheat cultivars were compared in organic and conventional cropping system in two different locations of south - central Italy. A huge dataset was evaluated, includingExpand
