Ferrous ion biooxidation is a process with many promising industrial applications: mainly regeneration of ferric ion as an oxidizing reagent in bioleaching processes and depuration of acid mine drainage. The flooded packed-bed bioreactor (FPB) is the design that leads to the highest biooxidation rate. In this bioreactor, biomass is immobilized in a biofilm(More)
2003: Spatial and temporal variations of malaria epidemic risk in Ethiopia: factors involved and implications. Critical regions: a model-based estimation of world water resources sensitive to global changes. 2003b: Global estimates of water withdrawals and availability under current and future " business-as-usual " conditions. A new perspective on the(More)
A flow-through fluorescent sensor for the consecutive determination of Fe(III) and total iron is described. The reactive phase of the proposed sensor, which has a high affinity for complexed Fe(III), consists of pyoverdin immobilized on controlled pore glass (CPG) by covalent bonding. This pigment selectively reacts with Fe(III) decreasing its fluorescence(More)
We report a method for the determination of delta(18)O isotopic abundance in olive oils. The results obtained by applying the method to various Andalusian oil samples obtained in the 2004/05 and 2005/06 seasons are discussed in relation to olive variety, geographical origin, climate and ripeness index. Application of the method to samples of assured(More)
A homochiral vanadium-salen based MOF with the pcu topology is constructed via in situ synthesis under solvothermal conditions. The synthesized MOF exhibits BET surface areas of 574 m(2) g(-1), showing the highest H2 adsorption capacity (1.05 wt% at 77 K, 1 bar) and the highest CO2 uptake (51 cm(3) g(-1) at 273 K, 1 bar) for currently known salen-based(More)
Due to the ever-increasing amount of attention paid to the 'naturalness' of ingredients in food and beverages by both consumers and controlling authorities, the search for suitable methods for the characterisation of origin is of primary importance. Within the European Community the wine production industry is often faced with the problem of origin control(More)
The uranyl complexes of N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(carboxymethyl)-2,3-diaminopropionic acid, N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(carboxymethyl)diaminobutyric acid, N,N,N',N'-tetrakis(carboxymethyl)ornithine and N,N,N',N'-tetrakiscarboxymethyl)lysine have been studied by potentiometry, with computer evaluation of the titration data by the MINIQUAD program. Stability constants of the(More)
Three new closely related CoIIYIII complexes of general formula [Co(-L)(-X)Y(NO3)2] (X- = NO3- 1, benzoate, 2 and 9-anthracenecarboxylato, 3) have been prepared with the compartmental ligand N,N',N"-trimethyl-N,N"-bis(2-hydroxy-3-methoxy-5-methylbenzyl)diethylenetriamine (H2L). In these complexes CoII and YIII are triply bridged by two phenoxide groups(More)
A new family of stable layered organic-inorganic materials has been prepared, in one-step solvothermal process. They are based on an ordered nickel cluster-type nanoribbons separated from each other by specific alkyl (heptyl- or dodecyl-) arylic mono-carboxylate moieties acting as molecular spacers, perpendicular to the 1D inorganic chains. These organic(More)
