Photochemical degradation of crude oil: Comparison between direct irradiation, photocatalysis, and photocatalysis on zeolite.
Direct irradiation for 100h of crude oil from Basilicata (Southern Italy) gave in the case of linear and branched alkanes a reduction of 9 and 5%, respectively. On the contrary, cyclic alkanesExpand

Ichthyotoxic sesquiterpenes and xanthanolides from Dittrichia graveolens
Abstract The ichthyotoxicity of Dittrichia graveolens was found to be due to the major sesquiterpenes 12-carboxyeudesma-3,11(13)-diene and tomentosin. In addition, seven structurally relatedExpand
