  • Analysis of Multi-Pesticide Residues in Vegetables, Food, and Fruits by SPE/GC-MS

    Cleanup of matrices is the first, the most important, and the most critical step for both broad-spectrum screening and accurate determination of pesticides and their metabolites in vegetables,meats, drinks and fruits. In most cases, solid phase extraction (SPE) methods are used to clean up the extracts before the GC-MS analysis. The ideal SPE material(s) should remove the greatest number of food ...

  • Best Practices for Optimizing PFAS Analysis

    Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are currently of great public health and environmental concern. Because PFAS are ubiquitous and commonly used in materials routinely employed for chemical analysis, laboratories are in need of streamlined protocols to minimize background contamination from these chemicals and quickly generate accurate data. This ebook outlines best practices, from the ...

  • Managing creativity: is it possible to control the birth of innovation in product design?

    The intention of this article is to explain how to improve design and product development. The objective is to point out different functions or mechanisms of the core of design tasks. Furthermore the aim is to analyse systematic control procedures in creative work. This review consists of extensively processed theoretical material connected to experiences in practical design. The beginning of the ...

  • Towards sustainable society: from materialism to post-materialism

    Finnish university students (n = 198) assessed their attitudes and achievements in implementation of sustainable development in their daily life. The data were collected using a theory-grounded semantic differential technique. A measurement instrument was created by balancing 36 variables of environmental, economic and social sustainability. As a result of logistic regression analysis ...

  • Why Move Up to Allegro 17.2-2016? So How Does Your Design “Stack-Up”? (Reason 5 of 10)

    We are not talking about how your design compares to the next guys’, we’re talking about the PCB layer structure of your design, be it rigid, flex, rigid-flex, or using inlay technology. Stackup definition, more specifically accurate stackup definition, is critical for a wide variety of reasons. The arrangement of the various materials affect the computations and analysis for ...

  • Sustainability analysis of rapid prototyping: material/resource and process perspectives

    Sustainability of rapid prototyping (RP) depends on both model–building materials (wooden–materials, photo–resins, etc.) and model–building processes (additive processes - SLA, SLS, etc.; and subtractive processes - e.g., wood–sawing). In this study, a sustainability index is developed for RP processes, and this index incorporates such sustainability factors as volumetric quantity of ...

  • Sound treatment and structural optimisation for acoustic performance of front dash with sound contribution

    Dash of the vehicle poses an important role in attenuating the sound radiated from the engine cabin. The acoustical performance of a vehicle dash system is determined by the sound transmission loss (STL). Computational modelling of such system poses challenge due to the complexity of the material properties as well as geometry. In the analysis, a numerical method with structure–sound interaction ...
