Carbonyl compounds (CC) play an important role in beverage aroma since they may affect flavor of wines, brandies, and beers, among others. For this reason, it is necessary to identify and quantify CC through adequate analytical techniques. This study is a proposal of both developing and optimization of a new analytical methodology that allows investigate(More)
Interest in renewable energy sources has increased in recent years due to environmental concerns about global warming and air pollution, reduced costs and improved efficiency of technologies. Under the European Union (EU) energy directive, biomass is a suitable renewable source. The aim of this study was to experimentally quantify and characterize the(More)
The presence of carbonyl compounds (CCs) in wines has sparked the interest of researchers in several countries. The quantification of some of these compounds has been used as a parameter of quality for many fermented beverages. Although present in minute quantities (except for acetaldehyde), they have a strong olfactory impact. In addition, the CCs found in(More)
The present study proposes an analytical methodology that employs ion chromatography-conductivity detection for simultaneous quantification of inorganic (F(-), Cl(-), NO(3)(-), SO(4)(2-), and PO(3)(-)), monocarboxylate (HCOO(-), CH(3)COO(-), propionate, n-butyrate, lactate, and pyruvate), dicarboxylate (oxalate and succinate), and tricarboxylate anions(More)
The present study proposes a fast and simple analytical methodology employing C18 SPE cartridges (for preconcentration and clean-up), and a ultra-fast liquid chromatography coupled to fluorescence detector (UFLC-FLD) for determination of the following endocrine disrupters (ED): bisphenol A (BPA), 4-n-nonylphenol (4NNP), 4-n-octylphenol (4NOP),(More)
According to the demands of energy saving and carbon emission reduction, the water vs. energy nexus has become a major concern worldwide. Brazil occupies a singular position in the global energy system. A major portion of the Brazilian occupancies has electricity and the energy system expansion that, at first, possesses adequate means for supporting the(More)
The method allowed simultaneous characterization of PAHs, nitro-PAHs and quinones in atmospheric particulate matter. This method employs a miniaturized micro-extraction step that uses 500 μL of an acetonitrile-dichloromethane mix and instrumental analysis by means of a high-resolution GC-MS. The method was validated using the SRM1649b NIST standard(More)
The intensive use of pesticides such as herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and acaricides has been lead to ubiquitous contamination, being present not only in soils, water bodies and/or crops, but also in the atmosphere. Considering the massive amount of pesticides employed globally, together to their persistence, this may be an important concern(More)
This paper describes the development and optimization, by using multivariate analysis, of a GC-MS-SIM method for evaluation of the 16 polyaromatic hydrocarbons considered as priority pollutants in atmospheric particulate material by the US EPA. In order to assure an adequate separation in the shortest analysis time, a multivariate design was used to set the(More)
