The new software of Org·TCO2TA was developed to calculate the pH values of seawater based on the alkalinity (Alk) equation where organic acid Alk (Org-Alk) was separated into LMWOA Alk (LMWOA-Alk) and humic acid Alk (HA-Alk). In the calculations, all dissociation constants of organic acids were from ...

The corresponding reaction of secondary ethers remains underdeveloped. Herein, a practical and efficient oxidative C–H cyanation of secondary benzylic ethers with TMSCN in the presence of DDQ is described. The metal-free process is well tolerated with a wide variety of electronically varied α-monosub...

In the area, 59.63% of the total deposition fluxes of the Cr, Cu, Ni, Pb and Zn were observed in the wet season (March to July). Lower total fluxe...

Coupled dynamic headspace sampling with on-line monitoring of methane and NMHC was used to reflect the quasi-realtime release behavior of methane and NMHC by the microalgae-water phase. Alkanes, alkene...

Publication date: April 2019Source: Harmful Algae, Volume 84Author(s): Yan-Jie Sun, Guo-Fu Chen, Chun-Yun Zhang, Chang-Lu Guo, Yuan-Yuan Wang, Rui SunAbstractHarmful algal blooms (HABs) have adverse effects on the marine ecological environment, public health, and marine economy. Thus, methods for the accurate and rapid identification of harmful algal species are urgently needed for the effective monitoring of the occurrence of HABS. A method for the parallel detection of harmful algal species must be established because various HAB-forming algal species coexist in the marine environment. This work developed a multiplex PCR...
