Since the middle of the 19th century, the area covered by forests in France has doubled. These new forests grow on previous agricultural lands. We have studied the influence of this agricultural history on the 15N abundance of present-day forests planted on farmlands in the Vosges mountains (north-eastern France) between 1898 and 1930. Different types of(More)
Lateral forces are inevitable in contact mode AFM imaging and they contribute significantly to the image formation under certain conditions. In cases where the objects are comparable in size to the cantilever tip and particularly in cases where the tips have a high aspect ratio, the lateral force may exceed the vertical force and may impose a severe(More)
Ionic liquids (ILs) can be partially substituted by glycerol or glycerol carbonate as cheap, safe, and renewably sourced co-solvents in the acid-catalyzed dehydration of fructose and inulin to 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF). In the particular case of glycerol, we found that HMF can be conveniently extracted from the IL/glycerol (65:35) mixture with(More)
