12 p, 2.2 MB Electrocatalytic processes for the valorization of CO2 : Synthesis of cyanobenzoic acid using eco-friendly strategies / Mena, Silvia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química) ; Gallardo Garcia, Iluminada (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química) ; Guirado López, Gonzalo (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química)
Carbon dioxide (CO) is a known greenhouse gas, and is the most important contributor to global warming. Therefore, one of the main challenges is to either eliminate or reuse it through the synthesis of value-added products, such as carboxylated derivatives. [...]

20 p, 206.6 KB State-of-the-Art Sensor Technology in Spain : Invasive and Non-Invasive Techniques for Monitoring Respiratory Variables / Domingo, Christian, (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Medicina) ; Blanch Torra, Lluís (Institut Universitari Parc Taulí) ; Murias, Gaston (Clínica Bazterrica / Clínica Santa Isabel (Buenos Aires, Argentina)) ; Luján i Torné, Manel (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Medicina)
The interest in measuring physiological parameters (especially arterial blood gases) has grown progressively in parallel to the development of new technologies. Physiological parameters were first measured invasively and at discrete time points; however, it was clearly desirable to measure them continuously and non-invasively. [...]

10 p, 699.0 KB Ocean acidification reduces growth and calcification in a marine dinoflagellate / Van de Waal, Dedmer B. (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Bremerhaven, Alemanya)) ; Uwe, John (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Bremerhaven, Alemanya)) ; Ziveri, Patrizia (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Reichart, Gert-Jan (Utrecht University. Department of Earth Sciences) ; Hoins, Mirja (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Bremerhaven, Alemanya)) ; Sluijs, Appy (Utrecht University. Department of Earth Sciences) ; Rost, Björn (Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research (Bremerhaven, Alemanya))
Ocean acidification is considered a major threat to marine ecosystems and may particularly affect calcifying organisms such as corals, foraminifera and coccolithophores. Here we investigate the impact of elevated pCO2 and lowered pH on growth and calcification in the common calcareous dinoflagellate Thoracosphaera heimii. [...]

19 p, 1.2 MB Forests trapped in nitrogen limitation – an ecological market perspective on ectomycorrhizal symbiosis / Franklin, Oskar (International Institute for Applied Systems Analysis) ; Näsholm, Torgny (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Department of Forest Ecology and Management) ; Högberg, Peter (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Department of Forest Ecology and Management) ; Högberg, Mona N. (Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. Department of Forest Ecology and Management)
Ectomycorrhizal symbiosis is omnipresent in boreal forests, where it is assumed to benefit plant growth. However, experiments show inconsistent benefits for plants and volatility of individual partnerships, which calls for a re-evaluation of the presumed role of this symbiosis. [...]

6 p, 105.3 KB Supercritical fluid extraction as a clean-up method for the extraction of pesticides from wool wax. A preliminary approach. / López Mesas, Montserrat (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química) ; Christoe, J. (CSIRO. Textile and Fibre Technology (Victoria, Austràlia)) ; Carrillo, Fernando (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya. Institut d'Investigació Tèxtil i Cooperació Industrial de Terrassa (Intexter)) ; Gutiérrez M.C. (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya.

Institut d'Investigació Tèxtil i Cooperació Industrial de Terrassa (Intexter))
Este trabajo es un estudio preliminar para el desarrollo de un metodo de extraccion de pesticidas directamente de las muestras de cera mediante extraccion con fluido supercritico. La novedad del estudio consiste en la extraccion directa de los pesticidas de la cera de lana cruda sin ninguna limpieza previa, cuando muchos autores han considerado casi imposible la extraccion directa.
The work presented is a preliminary study for the development of a method for the extraction of pesticides from wax samples by means of superficial fluid extraction. The novelty of the study is the direct extraction of the pesticides from raw wool wax without any cleanup, as direct extraction has been considered almost impossible by many authors.

31 p, 325.9 KB The long-run relationship between CO2 emissions and economic activity in a small open economy : Uruguay 1882 - 2010 / Piaggio, Matías ; Román, Carolina ; Padilla, Emilio ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament d'Economia Aplicada
The long-run relationship between carbon dioxide emissions from energy use and economic activity level is estimated for Uruguay between 1882 and 2010. We apply cointegration techniques and estimate a Vector Error Correction Model (VECM) for testing whether these variables are endogenous over the long-rung while also considering the short-run dynamics.
