Changes in tannins, ascorbic acid and sugar content in astringent persimmons during on-tree growth and ripening and in response to different postharvest treatments
Abstract Changes in tannins, ascorbic acid and sugars in astringent persimmons ‘Rojo Brillante’ and ‘Kaki Tipo’ were investigated during fruit maturation and after postharvest treatments. SolubleExpand

n-Alkanes, PAHs and surfactants in the sea surface microlayer and sea water samples of the Gerlache Inlet sea (Antarctica).
Abstract Sea surface microlayer (SML) and sea water samples (SSW) collected in the Gerlache Inlet Sea (Antarctica) were analysed for n-alkanes and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The SML isExpand
