In-line Ozonolysis coupled to Mass Spectrometry- A New Dimension of Structural Determination for LipidsDownload
The location of double bonds within unsaturated lipids can greatly affect their biological functions. Liquid chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry (LC/MS) has become a powerful tool for lipid separation and structural elucidation. However, the determination of double bond position remains...
This thesis first describes the development of novel analytical methods for use in lipid transformations. It continues with the synthesis of vegetable oil-based polyols with high hydroxyl value (OHV) and low viscosity, an example of a lipid transformation. Vegetable oils are amenable to...
Nosema disease of the Western honey bee (Apis mellifera L.), is caused by two distinct microsporidian fungal species, Nosema ceranae Fries et al. and Nosema apis Zander. N. apis infection of A. mellifera was first documented in 1909, while N. ceranae infection of A. mellifera was described in...
Lactobacilli are commonly used in food fermentations. Preservation and changes in food quality due to fermentation arise because of the growth, metabolism and enzymatic activity of these organisms. Enzymatic pathways of lactobacilli can also be exploited for the production of bioactive...
This thesis describes the development of two types of flow-through microreactors containing lipase immobilized onto either a hollow channel support within an optical microstructured fiber capillary (MSF) or onto a silica monolith within a fused silica capillary (SM). The large silica surface area...
