Biological Control 50: 103-110. that the herbicidal activity of GAF is associated with a ninhydrin-reactive compound and counteracted by selected amino acids. a C2-C9 alkane-oxidizing bacterium(More)
IN THIS STUDY, WE EXAMINED THE PHYSIOCHEMICAL PROPERTIES OF NASOENTERAL FEEDING TUBES MADE FROM TWO DIFFERENT TYPES OF POLYMER: silicone materials and polyurethane. The internal surfaces of the nasoenteral feeding tubes were analyzed for their hydrophobicity, roughness, microtopography, rupture-tension and ability to stretch. We also studied the adhesion of(More)
