Despite the high potential as feedstock for the production of fuels and chemicals, the industrial cultivation of microalgae still exhibits many issues. Yield in microalgae cultivation systems is limited by the solar energy that can be harvested. The availability of reliable models representing key phenomena affecting algae growth may help designing and(More)
This paper is focused on alkylphenols, compounds which are formed by the biodegradation of polyethoxilatedalkylphenols detergents. Our experiments show that alkylphenols act not only as detergents, but also as uncouplers of the oxidative phosphorylation. This effect, can be observed at very low doses, thus suggesting that the preferential target of(More)
