This paper reports on a preliminary evaluation of the grain size distribution of cadmium, lead and copper in sediment from Catarina Beach, Ilha Solteira, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Surface sediments were fractionated with <63 microm nylon sieves and subjected to three digestion procedures: the proposed open digestion, the standard USEPA-3050B and(More)
Developmental risk factors, such as the exposure to stress or high levels of glucocorticoids (GCs), may contribute to the pathogenesis of anxiety disorders. The immunomodulatory role of GCs and the immunological fingerprint found in animals prenatally exposed to GCs point towards an interplay between the immune and the nervous systems in the etiology of(More)
A method was developed to attach 4-amino-2-mercaptopyrimidine (AMP) onto silica gel surface and to determine trace metals. The surface functionalization reaction was performed with a silylant agent, chloropropyltrimethoxysilane (Si-CPTS), and the product, Si-AMP, was characterized by FT-IR and elemental analysis to evaluate the surface modification. The(More)
Uma silica gel, com área específica de 382 m g e diâmetro médio de poro de 60 Å, foi modificada quimicamente com 2-amino-1,3,4-tiadiazol, com o propósito de adsorção seletiva de íons de metais pesados e possível utilização como um eletrodo de pasta de carbono quimicamente modificado (CMCPE). São discutidas as seguintes propriedades desta sílica gel(More)
A mercury-sensitive chemically modified graphite paste electrode was constructed by incorporating modified silica gel into a conventional graphite paste electrode. The functional group attached to the (3-chloropropyl) silica gel surface was 2-mercaptoimidazole, giving a new product denoted by 3-(2-thioimidazolyl)propyl silica gel, which is able to complex(More)
