We demonstrate improved power of Iatroscan thin layer chromatography/flame ionization detection (TLC-FID) technique for analysis of complex marine lipid mixture by developing protocol for the separation and analysis of glycolipids including sulfoquinovosyldiacylglycerols (SQDG), monogalactosyldiacylglycerols (MGDG) and digalactosyldiacylglycerols (DGDG). We(More)
Methylnitrocatechols (MNCs) are secondary organic aerosol (SOA) tracers and major contributors to atmospheric brown carbon; however, their formation and aging processes in atmospheric waters are unknown. To investigate the importance of aqueous-phase electrophilic substitution of 3-methylcatechol with nitronium ion (NO2(+)), we performed quantum(More)
The lattice structure and in plane molecular organization of Langmuir monolayer of amphiphilic material is usually determined from grazing incidence X-ray diffraction (GIXD) or neutron reflectivity. Here we present results of a different approach for determination of monolayer lattice structure based on application of fractal analysis and percolation theory(More)
Electrochemical impedance spectroscopy, ac voltammetry and fractal analysis were used to characterize model compounds, compound mixtures and extracted samples of sea surface microlayer (ssm) und underlying water (ulw). The reasons for carrying out this work were to use the scientific basis of these characterizations in future on-line analytical procedures(More)
Detailed investigation of Cu (II) binding with natural lipid phosphatidylglycerol (PG) in aqueous solution was carried out by voltammetric measurements at the mercury drop electrode, complemented by monolayer studies in a Langmuir trough and electrophoretic measurements, all used as models for hydrophobic cell membranes. Penetration of copper ions into the(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the connection between the lipid/amphiphile monolayer structure at the interface and its macroscopic/rheological properties, in particular, to establish the link between the fractality of the monolayer structure and its compressibility modulus. To that purpose we have used fractal analysis of images obtained by(More)
Monolayer studies and a force-area quantification approach, in combination with electrochemical methods, are applied for physicochemical characterization of surface active substances (SAS) of the sea surface microlayers (MLs) from Middle Adriatic stations. Higher primary production during late spring-early autumn was reflected in the presence of MLs of(More)
A systematic investigation of non-phosphorus containing glycolipids (GL) was conducted in the northern Adriatic Sea during two years at two stations with different nutrient loads. GL concentration varied both spatially and temporally, with values of 1.1-21.5 μg/L and 0.4-44.7 μg/L in the particulate and the dissolved fraction, respectively. The highest(More)
