The microextraction of diclofenac and mefenamic acid from water samples was performed by using rotating disk sorptive extraction (RDSE) with molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) as the sorptive phase. The MIP was synthesized from the monomer 1-vinylimidazol (VI) together with the cross-linker divinylbenzene (DVB) using diphenylamine as the template molecule.(More)
Total element determination and chemical fractionation were carried out in airborne particulate matter (PM10) from the Cerrillos monitoring station in Santiago, Chile, sampled in July (winter), 1997–2003. Element concentration in the period under study (1997–2003) was statistically analyzed through cluster analysis in order to identify groups of elements(More)
The purpose of this study was assessing Cu and Zn availabilities in soils amended with a biosolid through the determination of their sequentially extracted chemical forms and their relationship with the contents of these metals in ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) and subterranean clover (Trifolium subterraneum L.) plant tissues cultivated in a greenhouse using(More)
Abiotic stress has a growing impact on plant growth and agricultural activity worldwide. Specific plant growth promoting rhizobacteria have been reported to stimulate growth and tolerance to abiotic stress in plants, and molecular mechanisms like phytohormone synthesis and 1-aminocyclopropane-1-carboxylate deamination are usual candidates proposed to(More)
This paper reports a simple and fast method for the simultaneous determination of estradiol (ED) and medroxyprogesterone acetate (MP) in pharmaceutical formulations by second-derivative spectrophotometry. Methanol was used to extract the drugs from formulations, and subsequently the extracts were evaluated directly by derivative spectrophotometry. The drugs(More)
In this study the sorption of nonylphenol was implemented on a rotating Teflon disk coated with a PDMS film on one of its surfaces. In this way, the disk, which has a high surface area, contacts only the liquid sample, which can be stirred at higher velocity than with the stir bar used in stir-bar sorptive extraction (SBSE), without damaging the phase while(More)
The effect of biosolid incorporation on arsenic distribution in Mollisol soils in central Chile was studied. Two soils were sequentially extracted for arsenic with a five-step method that accounts for the following arsenic forms: non-specifically adsorbed (F1), specifically adsorbed (F2), amorphous and poorly crystallized Fe and Al oxides (F3),(More)
The roles of chemical kinetics and mass transfer in two types of bioreactors (packed-column reactors and rotating disk bioreactors), used with continuous-flow sample/ reagent(s) processing, are discussed in detail. A normalized quantitative comparison between these types of reactors clearly shows that rotating disk reactors afford a significantly more(More)
The rotating disk sorptive extraction (RDSE) technique was applied to the determination of pesticides in aqueous samples. Pesticides of different polarities were considered in this study: chlorpyrifos, diazinon, fenvalarate, cyhalothrin, cypermethrin, lindane and malathion. The sorptive/desorptive behavior of the pesticides was studied using a rotating disk(More)
Montmorillonite (MMT) clays were modified by the intercalation into their galleries of ionic liquids (IL) based on imidazolium quaternary ammonium salts. This new eco-materials exhibited good features for use as a sorptive phase in the extraction of low-polarity analytes from aqueous samples. Spectroscopic analyses of the modified clays were conducted and(More)
