Identification of volatiles from heated tobacco biomass using direct thermogravimetric analysis – mass spectrometry and target factor analysis
Publication date: Available online 19 August 2018Source: Thermochimica ActaAuthor(s): Ashley Davies, James Thomas Grant Nicol, Chuan Liu, John Tetteh, Kevin McAdamAbstractTarget Factor Analysis (TFA) was used to identify full spectral profiles in the presence of complex overlapping signals in mass spectrometry data. This allowed interpretation of direct thermogravimetric analysis-mass spectrometry (TGA-MS) data from two varieties of tobacco biomass, heated below 350 °C. Previous TGA-MS approaches reported in biomass research use Selected Ion Monitoring (SIM) to monitor specific ions in the evolved gases. This cannot dis...

Integration of carbon dots and polyaniline with TiO2 nanoparticles: Substantially enhanced photocatalytic activity to removal various pollutants under visible light
In this study, ternary photocatalysts were fabricated through integration of carbon dots (CDs) and polyaniline (PANI) with TiO2 nanoparticles by a facile route. The photocatalysts were characterized by XRD, SEM, HRTEM, EDX, BET, XPS, FT-IR, UV–vis DRS, and PL instruments. Among the photocatalysts, the TiO2/CDs/PANI (20%) nanocomposite exhibited much higher photocatalytic performance for removal of RhB, MO, MB, and fuchsine in comparison with the TiO2, TiO2/CDs, and TiO2/PANI (20%) photocatalysts under visible light. The degradation rate constant of RhB by TiO2/CDs/PANI (20%) nanocomposite was 481 × 10-4 min-1, whi...

AbstractSynthetic biology is the engineering view on biotechnology that ultimately aims at fulfilling the quest of building an artificial cell. From the very first attempts of synthesizing life, this subject has made an impact on the media through, very often, misleading headlines and news. We review here the historical journalistic approach on synthetic biology and related disciplines, from the early twentieth century to the lastest achievements on designing protocells or genome reduction. However, it would be very naive to consider the research community and the media to be unidirectionally linked, with the latter being ...
