  1. 1. Method development for the analysis of PFAS and neutral precursors in active and passive air samplers

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Pascal Camoiras González; [2019]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Poly- and perfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a chemical class of global concern because of their persistence, toxicity and widespread presence in the environment. This work aimed to develop a robust and reliable method to analyse perfluorohexane sulfonic acid (PFHxS), perfluorooctanoic acid (PFOA) and perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS), as well as the neutral volatile PFOS precursors, namely perfluorooctane sulfonamides and perfluorooctane sulfonamidoethanols (FOSAs/FOSEs).

  2. 2. Direct poly(A) RNA nanopore sequencing on the freshwater duck mussel Anodonta anatina following exposure to copper : A pilot study

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Erik Engström; [2019]
    Keywords : mussel; hepatopancreas; nanopore; sequencing; RNA; nucelotide; read;

    Abstract : Aquatic ecotoxicology is the study of toxic chemicals and its effects on aquatic biological systems with the aim of minimising threats to human health and ensure self-sustained ecosystems. Freshwater bivalves are excellent sentinels for use in ecotoxilogical research due to their filter feeding properties, stationary lifestyle and inability to regulate body temperature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Development of polymer based composite filaments for 3D printing

    University essay from Uppsala universitet/Tillämpad materialvetenskap

    Author : Elin Åkerlund; [2019]
    Keywords : 3D-printing; fused deposition modeling FDM ; composite filaments; biocompatible materials; biodegradability; medical applications; scaffold materials; poly lactic acid PLA ; polycaprolactone PCL ; hydroxyapatite HA ; mechanical properties; thermal stability; chemical composition; morphological characterization; accelerated degradation study; polymer degradation behavior;

    Abstract : The relatively new and still growing field of 3D-printing has opened up the possibilities to manufacture patient-specific medical devices with high geometrical accuracy in a precise and quick manner. Additionally, biocompatible materials are a demand for all medical applications while biodegradability is of importance when developing scaffolds for tissue growth for instance. READ MORE

  4. 4. Biomechanical Analysis of Implant plates for Mandibular Condyle fractures

    University essay from

    Author : Viswambik Rohit Kumar Dhurvasula; [2019]
    Keywords : Finite Element Analysis; Hydroxyapatite; Poly-L-lactic acid; stress shielding; Maxillofacial surgery.;

    Abstract : In the field of maxillofacial surgery, the treatment for the recovery of the fracture at condyle region of the mandible has been carried out using Bio-metals such as Titanium, Cobalt, Stainless-Steel because they were considered the standard materials for Implant plate devices for fracture fixation. Using these materials have led to undesired disturbances where the patient must undergo secondary surgery after recovery leading to exposure of the fracture site to the surrounding, metal-ion release into the human system, stress-shielding and interruption during imaging i.

    Abstract : Semiconductors are used in many electronic applications, for example diodes, solar cells and transistors. Typically, semiconductors are inorganic materials, such as silicon and gallium arsenide, but lately more research and development has been devoted to organic semiconductors, for example semiconducting polymers.
