  1. 1. Hydrological catchment analysis from characterisation of organic matter in stream water

    University essay from Göteborgs universitet/Institutionen för geovetenskaper

    Author : Hannes Berg Wiklund; [2020-02-05]
    Keywords : Organic matter; Time-of-flight mass spectrometry; aquatic chemistry; catchment hydrology;

    Abstract : Organic matter (OM) in aquatic systems is a complex field which have rapidly developed duringthe last decade due to the introduction of high resolution mass spectrometers. The compositionof OM in the aquatic environment is directly dependent on factors such as oxygen supply, pHand the flow rate in the local system. READ MORE

  2. 2. The role of salt inducible kinases in the regulation of the mammalian target of rapamycin pathway in adipocytes

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Sulochana Kotresh Jali; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Salt inducible kinase 2 (SIK2) is found abundantly in adipose tissue and may have a role in the development of diabetes. SIK2 is downregulated in insulin-resistant and obese individuals, thereby providing a new potential target for therapeutic solutions. READ MORE

  5. 5. Enhancing the degradation rate of microplastics and organizing a study visit about sustainability

    University essay from KTH/Lärande

    Author : Marianne Al-Ghorabi; [2020]
    Keywords : Accommodation; assimilation; Fenton reaction; microplastics; polypropylene; polystyrene; proximal development zone; study visit; visible light photocatalysis; zinc oxide nanorods; Ackommodation; assimilation; den proximala utvecklingszonen; Fenton reaktion; fotokatalys med synligt ljus; mikroplast; polypropalen; polystyren; studiebesök; zinkoxid nanorör.;

    Abstract : Microplastics take hundreds to thousands of years to degrade in nature, and pose a threat to the environment. A photocatalytical degradation method have been developed to take advantage of solar light to degrade microplastics, however it takes several months to degrade microplastics with the process.
