In the first part of the present study, 1 two steels were designed with the aim of achieving properties consistent with the specifications for the manufacture of seamless pipes. The alloys were intended to develop into mixtures of bainitic ferrite and carbon enriched retained austenite during cooling to ambient temperature from the pipe forming operations,(More)
Seamless pipes are usually quenched and tempered after manufacture in order to obtain the desired properties. The possibility of avoiding this heat treatment is explored here, by designing steels which transform into an carbide free bainitic microstructure during cooling from the hot processing phase of the pipe. The cooling conditions studied are(More)
Spawning time in salmonids is a sex-limited quantitative trait that can be modified by selection. In rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), various quantitative trait loci (QTL) that affect the expression of this trait have been discovered. In this study, we describe four microsatellite loci associated with two possible spawning time QTL regions in coho(More)
An efficient procedure for preparing enantiopure polycyclic ethers is reported. The protocol is based on the photo-oxidation/conjugate addition sequence over a chiral functionalized furan, which was prepared from commercially available tri-O-acetyl-D-glucal. The Michael addition step afforded two products with the same absolute configuration from a mixture(More)
