  2. 2. Analysis of polyfunctional thiols in beer : Developing a novel method of extraction and analysis using GC-FID

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Livsmedelsteknik och nutrition (master)

    Author : Arvid Lindmark; [2022]
    Keywords : Beer; Hops; Thiols; 3MHA; 4MMP; Food Technology; Agriculture and Food Sciences;

    Abstract : In this project, attempts were made to identify and quantify two polyfunctional thiols – 4-mercapto-4-methyl-pentanone and 3-mercaptohexyl acetate – and three monoterpene alcohols – linalool, geraniol, and β-citronellol – in beer samples. In order to avoid the use of hazardous compounds such as dichloromethane and hydroxymercuriobenzoate, common in traditional methods, two novel techniques were tested: a pure liquid-liquid extraction of the beer samples with cyclohexane, and a liquid-liquid extraction with cyclohexane followed by solid phase extraction on silver ion columns.

  3. 3. Våmacidos – den svårupptäckta sjukdomen : en studie kring hur sjukdomen uppkommer samt dess förekomst i Sverige

    University essay from SLU/Department of Biosystems and Technology (from 130101)

    Author : Linnéa Jönsson; Amanda Pettersson; [2021]
    Keywords : våmacidos; subakut våmacidos; SARA; foderrelaterade sjukdomar på mjölkkor; rumen acidosis; subacute rumen acidosis; digestive disorders of dairy cows;

    Abstract : För att mjölkkor ska ha en väl fungerande våm krävs en foderstat med en stor mängd fiberrika material som stimulerar till idissling. Vid en för hög tillförsel av stärkelse och en lägre andel fibrer i foderstaten kan mängden flyktiga fettsyror öka i våmmen. READ MORE

  5. 5. Optimizing Sample Dissolution Methods of Low Water Soluble Intermediate Organic Compounds to Support Environmental Risk Assessment during Active Pharmaceutical Ingredient Manufacturing.

    University essay from Örebro universitet/Institutionen för naturvetenskap och teknik

    Author : Warda Mohammed; [2021]
    Keywords : Active pharmaceutical ingredient; API; total organic content; TOC; chemical oxygen demand COD; biological oxygen demand; BOD; Microtox; octanol-water partition coefficient; Kow; solubility.;

    Abstract : This project focus on investigating the dissolution of low water-soluble intermediate organic compounds called active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) and organic substances that are manufactured by a pharmaceutical company, Cambrex Karlskoga in Sweden. Several dissolution methods were used and evaluated using methods including total organic carbon (TOC), chemical oxygen demand (COD), biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and Microtox toxicity test.
