Measurements of carbon-14 in small samples of methane from major biogenic sources, from biomass burning, and in "clean air" samples from both the Northern and Southern hemispheres reveal that methane from ruminants contains contemporary carbon, whereas that from wetlands, pat bogs, rice fields, and tundra is somewhat, depleted in carbon-14.

The present work was designed to elucidate crystallographic changes in enamel that had been demineralized in a 0.01 M acetate buffer (pH 4.0) for 2 days at 50 degrees C and then remineralized in a solution containing 1 mM Ca, 0.6 mM P, and 0.05 mM F for 1 or 2 weeks at 37 degrees C. The demineralized and remineralized enamel samples were observed by means(More)
Chloride and iodide ions exhibit noncompetitive inhibition of carbon dioxide hydration catalyzed by bovine carbonic anhydrase and competitive inhibition of bicarbonate dehydration. Consideration of the net velocity at equilibrium leads to a satisfactory resolution of the dilemma concerning the different concentrations of such anions required to halve the(More)
The concentration and particle size distribution of 19 major polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) emitted by thermal cooking were investigated. Corn, trout, beef, prawns, and pork were selected for grilling. The PAHs in the oil mist emitted when the food was grilled were collected according to particle size range and analysed by GC/MS. Much higher(More)
Novel near-infrared (NIR)-sensitizing (up to 800 nm) simple asymmetric squaraine dyes (Sq 31 and Sq 33) carrying indoline moieties that did not require the introduction of any linker groups were developed. DSSCs fabricated with Sq 33 exhibited remarkable characteristics in the long-wavelength visible and NIR region (up to 800 nm), such as a conversion(More)
