This paper presents the fabrication of flow-sensors based on the drag-force induced motion of artificial hairs connected to capacitive read-out. Artificial hairs were made either out of moulded silicon-nitride structures or by SU-8. The SU-8 hairs were suspended on membranes containing electrodes to form the variable capacitors. Silicon-rich-nitride hairs(More)
In this article, a dataset from a collaborative non-target screening trial organised by the NORMAN Association is used to review the state-of-the-art and discuss future perspectives of non-target screening using high-resolution mass spectrometry in water analysis. A total of 18 institutes from 12 European countries analysed an extract of the same water(More)
Effect-directed analysis has been applied to a river sediment sample of concern to identify the compounds responsible for the observed effects in an in vitro (anti-)androgenicity assay. For identification after non-target analysis performed on a high-resolution LTQ-Orbitrap, we developed a de novo identification strategy including physico-chemical(More)
Biogenic non-methane hydrocarbons such as isoprene, alpha-pinene, and beta-pinene, are emitted by forests in very large quantities. To evaluate the role of alpha- and beta-pinene and their contribution to the global production of trace gases and especially aerosol precursors, a study of the oxidation mechanism of alpha- and beta-pinene with hydroxyl(More)
In this paper an identification method is described for determining the degradation products of the reaction of alpha-pinene with hydroxyl radicals. The study is carried out in a fast-flow reactor equipped with a specially designed microwave cavity (type Surfatron) allowing to operate at pressures up to 100 Torr (1 Torr=133.322 Pa). The semivolatile(More)
In this paper a method is described for determining and quantifying the degradation products of the reaction of alpha-pinene with hydroxyl radicals. The study is carried out in a fast-flow reactor equipped with a specially designed microwave cavity (type Surfatron) allowing to operate at pressures up to 100 Torr (1 Torr=133.322 Pa).
