Invitation to tender – Dry January evaluation 2019

We are inviting invitations from experienced evaluation teams to assess the impact of Alcohol Concern’s Dry January campaign 2019.  Full details are available here: Dry January 2019 – Invitation to tender. Dry January was first launched by Alcohol Concern in 2013.  It has since become a high profile, widely recognised national behaviour-change campaign. It is one of the best known ‘monthly abstinence’ campaigns globally.  The primary aim of Dry January is for participants to reset their relationship with alcohol. In particular, we are looking to increase participants’ desire – and ability – to better control their drinking. We are seeking an agency to conduct an evaluation of Dry January 2019 to answer key questions about the campaign’s impact, user-experiences and user motivation. The deadline for applications is 5th November.

In this study, a novel approach for effective liquid-liquid microextraction based on deep eutectic solvent (DES) decomposition was suggested for the first time. It was established that DESs synthesized from tetrabutylammonium bromide and long-chain alcohols decomposed in aqueous phase resulting in in situ dispersion of organic phase and extraction of hydrophobic analyte(s). It this process long-chain alcohol acted as an extraction solvent and tetrabutylammonium bromide acted as a dispersive agent and promoted mass transfer between aqueous and organic phases as a salting out agent. Phenomenon of DES decomposition was studie...
