A preliminary study of chemical and microbial characteristics of the Athabasca River in the Athabasca oil sands area of northeastern AlbertaDownload
A literature review and evaluation of methods used to determine rates of bacterial uptake (heterotrophic assimilation) of organic substrates in fresh water systems was undertaken. The uptake of a \"universal\" substrate - radiolabelled glutamic acid - was determined in order to assess the effects...
Research was undertaken into the organic semiconductors tris(8- hydroxyquinoline)aluminum (Alq3) as well as bis(8-hydroxyquinoline)zinc (Znq2) to the effect of improving achievable morphological control using an inexpensive evaporation based solution synthesis method. By varying experimental...
Investigation of the Synthesis, Reactivity and Biological Properties of Various 6-Substituted D-Fructose DerivativesDownload
The detection of small tumors growing in complex organs, including breast tissue, is a challenge in modern medical imaging. The use of positron emission tomography (PET) and tracer molecules containing radionuclei such as 18F have been of significant value to detect small tumors. The commonly...
Organic chemistry has its foundations in the 19th century; since, it has grown into a number of industries affecting our daily lives such as the manufacture of goods and life saving pharmaceuticals. The need for new and increasingly efficient synthetic methods has grown in response to the...
POTENTIAL ANTHROPOSOL DEVELOPMENT USING PHOSPHOGYPSUM AS A SUBSTRATE WITH SOIL AND ORGANIC AMENDMENTSDownload
Phopshopgypsum is a byproduct of phosphate fertilizer production resulting from the production of phosphoric acid from phosphate rock (Rutherford et al. 1994a). Most reclamation plans for phosphogypsum stacks include a cover system that is installed over the stack; thus research in the area of...
QTL mapping and genetic studies in the Attila x CDC Go spring wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) mapping populationDownload
Bread wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is one of the most important staple crops in the world. Wheat breeders in Canada primarily aim to develop cultivars with favored agronomic traits such as short stature, early maturity, high yielding, preferred end-use quality such as high protein content, and at...
Large volumes of oil sands process-affected water (OSPW) are produced by the surface-mining oil sands industry in Alberta. The industry is following a no-release practice for OSPW due to its potential environmental toxicity. Both laboratory and field studies have demonstrated that OSPW is toxic...
Organic constituents of wastewaters from the existing Athabasca oil sands extraction plant were characterized and quantified. Twenty-one chemical parameters were determined on a total of ten samples taken during November and December, 1975 from the tailings pond dike filter drainage system, the...
In this study, the ability of microorganisms to degrade selected organic substrates in samples of Athabasca River water and water-sediment has been determined. Analysis of laboratory-incubated samples using gas chromatography/ mass spectrometry has shown that trace amounts (100 µg/L) of m-cresol...
