The African crested rat’s poisonous hairs studied by attenuated total reflection infrared spectroscopy case study

by Specac Limited  (Nov. 25, 2014)

Introduction Plant toxins are commonly used by many invertebrates, as an effective defence against predation. However, such behaviour has recently been observed in a mammal.1 The African crested rat, Lophiomys imhausi, applies a potent toxin to the fur alongside its flanks. It acquires this toxin from Acokanthera schimperi,1 a shrub abundant in ...

Effects of pH on chromate(VI) adsorption by Spirulina platensis biomass: batch tests and FT-IR studies

by IWA Publishing  (May 9, 2013)

Raw and methylated biomass of Spirulina platensis was employed in chromate batch adsorption tests at pH range 1–7. The acid conditions seemed to favour the removal of chromium (Cr) with a yield of 87.0 and 97.6% by using raw and methylated biomass, respectively. However, the chromate and total chromium determination, carried out in ...

FTIR gas analysis improves container safety

by Gasmet Technologies Oy  (Feb. 22, 2013)
