Bicarbonate dialysis is mandatory for high efficiency treatment. In most cases bicarbonate is delivered either as prepacked powder or as a stable liquid concentrate in 6-10 I plastic containers. With a newly designed central supply system (CSS) using 800 I tanks of custom-made sterile and pyrogen free concentrates, we investigated the risk of bacterial(More)
Alkyl glycosides were sulfated with sulfur trioxide-pyridine. Dodecyl alpha- and beta-D-glucopyranoside gave the corresponding 6-sulfates in 75 and 51% yields, respectively. Separation from polysulfated compounds was carried out by reversed-phase HPLC. Tetradecyl beta-maltopyranoside (16) gave a 88: 12 mixture of 6'- and 6-sulfates. The sulfated compounds(More)

Pesticide taxes can be an important tool in the toolkit of policy-makers and are of increasing importance in European agriculture. However, little is known about the effects of such tax solutions and(More)
