Effects of Chlorophytum borivilianum on sexual behaviour and sperm count in male rats
This study was designed to evaluate the aphrodisiac and spermatogenic potential of the aqueous extract of dried roots of Chlorophytum borivilianum (CB) in rats. Male Wistar albino rats were dividedExpand

Time-resolved SANS visualization of hierarchical structures during thermochemical reactions
Knowledge of structural changes to biomass during pretreatment will enable an informed approach to improving biomass conversion efficiencies. We developed a pressure reaction cell to monitorExpand
Cellulose-lignin composite fibres as precursors for carbon fibres. Part 1 - Manufacturing and properties of precursor fibres.
Cellulose-lignin composite fibres were spun from ionic liquid (IL) solutions by dry-jet wet spinning. Birch pre-hydrolysed Kraft (PHK) pulp and organosolv beech (BL) or spruce lignin (SL) wereExpand
