15-Hydroperoxyabietic acid (15-HPA) has been isolated from Portuguese colophony of the gum rosin type and identified as its methyl ester. The structure of the compound was elucidated using UV, IR, NMR and mass spectrometry. 15-HPA methyl ester was found to be an elicitor when tested in colophony-sensitized guinea-pigs. The sensitizing capacity was verified(More)
A method is described for the determination of unconjugated terbutaline in plasma. The assay is based on gas chromatography chemical ionization mass spectrometry with ammonia as the reagent gas. Terbutaline and a deuterium labelled internal standard were isolated from plasma by ion exchange chromatography followed by extraction into t-butanol. Quantitation(More)
Thermooxidative degradation of polypropylene (PP) at close to the industrial processing temperatures was studied with thermogravimetric analysis, infrared spectroscopy, and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). GC-MS allowed identification of 47 volatile degradation products. Formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, alpha-methylacrolein, acetic acid, and acetone(More)
7-oxodehydroabietic acid and 15-hydroxydehydroabietic acid were isolated as their methyl esters from Portuguese colophony of the gum rosin type and identified as contact allergens. Another oxidation product of dehydroabietic acid, 15-hydroxy-7-oxodehydroabietic acid, was synthesized and identified as a component of Portuguese gum rosin. 7-oxodehydroabietic(More)
Hydroxylated and methylated surfaces were prepared by the self-assembled monolayer technique (SAM) of alkane thiols on gold. The surfaces were used to evaluate the influence of implant surface chemistry on protein deposition and inflammatory cell response. Implants were inserted subcutaneously in the rat for 3 and 24 h. The surface chemical properties(More)
Polymethylmethacrylate was thermally degraded in air at 300 degrees C and the volatile decomposition products studied with gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. The main product was monomeric methacrylate, although many other compounds existed among the products. Electron spin resonance spectroscopy revealed the presence of free radicals. Wistar rats were(More)
Noscapine, narcotoline and cotarnine were quantified in deproteinized plasma samples by using a coupled-column liquid chromatographic system. The drug and the metabolites were first separated into two groups on a short polar precolumn (-CN) with an acidic mobile phase, containing a low content of acetonitrile. The metabolites were transferred to a(More)
