The temporal and diurnal changes in nitrous oxide (N(2)O) fluxes were measured between 29(th) September and 2(nd) November 1999 from urine and dung patches from cattle deposited on grazed grassland. The delta(15)N and delta(18)O values of the N(2)O emitted from soil from both treatments were examined on four occasions during this period. The diurnal fluxes(More)
Particle emissions, percentage of organic extractable materials, and mutagenicities of extracts from a diesel engine operating on a test stand have been determined for the full Federal Test Procedure driving cycle and several individual segments thereof. Particle samples were collected using a computer controlled high volume sampler. Extracts of the exhaust(More)
To evaluate the potential health risks associated with increased use of diesel engines, information is needed on the biological fate of inhaled diesel exhaust components. Appropriately radiolabeled exhaust produced by burning radiolabeled fuel could be used to gain this information. The purpose of this study was to characterize different radiolabeled diesel(More)
We present a new experimental approach, in which anion photodetachment spectroscopy is recorded with electrons of fixed kinetic energy. This approach circumvents some shortcomings of the zero electron kinetic energy method. Our method is based on a modified magnetic bottle photoelectron spectrometer (MBPES). A tunable laser is used to detach electrons from(More)
Flat pea (Lathyrus sylvestris L.) is suitable as 'pioneer plant' for the recultivation of slag heaps and mining areas for agricultural production. Flat pea contains between 20 and 30% crude protein in the dry matter and is richer in protein than other feed legumes. It is comparable to foxtail clover and lucerne as regards the content of amino acids (g/16 g(More)
2H Magic-angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (MAS NMR), echo 27Al NMR, two-dimensional (2D) echo 1H MAS NMR and 1H, 27Al and 29Si MAS NMR have been applied to study the acid sites of dehydrated zeolites. The quadrupole coupling constants CQCC determined from 2H MAS NMR spectra of Si-OH-Al sites increase with the framework aluminium content of the(More)
The temperature of zeolite samples containing various adsorbed molecules was rapidly changed (within 15 s) from room temperature to 600 K by means of a laser beam. The location of the sealed glass ampoule in a boron nitride container decreases the temperature gradient in the sample and avoids laser-induced reactions. The technique facilitates time-dependent(More)
