Poly (glycerol adipate) (PGA) can be produced from divinyl adipate and unprotected glycerol by an enzymatic route to generate a polymer with relatively low molar mass (12 kDa). PGA bears a pendant hydroxyl group which imparts a hydrophilic character to this water insoluble polymer. We have examined the effect of synthesis temperature on polymer characteristics through various techniques including FT IR, 1H and 13C NMR, surface and thermal analysis, both to expand the data already present in the literature about this material and to understand better its properties for potential pharmaceutical applications.
Climate change has become a key environmental narrative of the 21st century. However, emphasis on the science of climate change has overshadowed studies focusing on human interpretations of climate history, of adaptation and resilience, and of explorations of the institutions and cultural coping strategies that may have helped people adapt to climate changes in the past. Moreover, although the idea of climate change has been subject to considerable scrutiny by the physical sciences, recent climate scholarship has highlighted the need for a re examination of the cultural and spatial dimensions of climate, with contributions from the humanities and social sciences.
It [a] real hit and miss. CNA slogan on health care reform was simple: in, nobody out. Under single payer, Nielsen states, no one, regardless of their immigration status, could be denied access to health care.. Cudi seemed genuinely thrilled to be performing and went on to explain that he prefers smaller shows because he enjoys being able to reach out and touch the audience. During his final song (), he jumped onto some speakers, through the press pit, security, etc. And made his way to the audience.
Ellie I would ask you to read your post again. It makes no sense. You say your awesome pub used plastic cups once but you are against it because they were all over the floor and bar staff tripped over them. Aim: Fire Service Instructors (FSI) are exposed to many repeated periods of high environmental temperatures when training firefighters. Such repeated exposures will impose significant strains on the function of instructors. We aimed to measure the effects of a training programme including repeated exposures to heat, termed “Wears” in the fire service, on the physiological, psychological some immunological markers of Fire Service Instructors.
Whakaari / White Island Eruption: Body recovery operationThe NZ Defence Force recovered the bodies of six people who tragically died in Monday’s eruption on Whakaari/White Island and will support efforts to recover the bodies of two others in the hope there is resolution for those families.
