A sensitive and selective phosphorimetric method for the determination of 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (1-NAA) based on a flow-injection system connected to a flow cell packed with a solid support and placed in the sample compartment of a conventional luminescence spectrometer is described. A non-ionic solid polymeric resin Amberlite XAD-7 is used for the(More)
The paper describes an integrated luminometer able to perform fluorescence (FL), room temperature phosphorescence (RTP) and chemiluminescence (CL) measurements on seawater samples. The technical details of the instrumentation are presented together with flow injection (FI) manifolds for the determination of cadmium and zinc (by FL), lead (RTP) and cobalt(More)
Cancer is characterized by the uncontrolled growth of cells with the ability of invading local organs and/or tissues and of spreading to other sites. Several kinds of mathematical models have been proposed in the literature, involving different levels of refinement, for the evolution of tumors and their interactions with chemotherapy drugs.
