Concentrations of cadmium, cobalt, copper, chromium, iron, manganese, nickel, lead and zinc were determined in surface sediments of the Lagos Lagoon, Nigeria. The results revealed largely
Studies on some edible wild mushrooms from Nigeria: 1. Nutritional, teratogenic and toxic considerations
The biological value of 5 mushroomsChlorophyllum molybditis, Psathyrella atroumbonata, Termitomyces robustus, Termitomyces striatus andVolvariella esculenta from our collection of wild edible
Quality changes of Nigerian traditionally processed freshwater fish species.
Comparisons between fish treatment and organoleptic attributes showed obvious differences, and the fresh fish always scored highest while TD scored lowest, and Biological value, true digestibility, net protein utilization, and protein efficiency ratio were greater than casein, although they were not statistically different from each other.
Polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons in some Nigerian preserved freshwater fish species.
Rapid transesterification and mass spectrometric approach to seed oil analysis
Fatty acid composition of seed oil is determined in less than one hr using a quantitative one-vial technique. The method of analysis requires alcoholic solutions of sodium methoxide mild enough for
Synthesis of toughened elastomer from vernonia galamensis seed oil
AbstractsThis paper examines the synthesis of a toughened elastomer fromVernonia galamensis seed oil by reacting vernonia oil with vernonia oil-derived suberic acid (octanedioic acid), and
Fuel characteristics and emissions from biomass burning and land-use change in Nigeria
Nigeria is one of the 13 low-latitude countries that have significant biomass burning activities. Biomass burning occurs in moist savanna, dry forests, and forest plantations. Fires in the forest
