Abstract  

The coupling of a quadrupole mass spectrometer (QMS) via a heated capillary to a commercial thermogravimetric analyser is described. The amu and temperature ranges available were up to 1000 amu and 1500°C, respectively. The system was evaluated with test compounds, yielding gaseous species in the m/z range of 17-80, and then used for the study of thermal behaviour of scandium dipivaloyl methanate or Sc(thd)3 which is discussed in detail. Sc(thd)2 appears as the major Sc-containing species with m/z=411 in the gas phase at 200-300°C.

Abstract  

Thermal stability of vegetative cells of Listeria monocytogenes, Escherichia coli and Lactobacillus plantarum was studied by counting viable fractions and determining DSC curves of their suspensions. DSC curves in the 5–99°C range showed a series of endothermic transitions between 50 and 60°C, where the heat destruction of cells occurred. Heat denaturation of DNA required a higher temperature than cell killing. Thermal death was strongly influenced by the pH, composition and NaCl content of the suspending buffer. A mathematical model developed by us enabled comparison of DSC peak temperatures and temperatures required for loss of viability.

Abstract  

In this paper we present 57Co emission Mössbauer and AC magnetic susceptibility studies of La0.8Sr0.2CoO3-δ perovskite. The observed coexistence of paramagnetic and magnetic subspectra in the 57Co emission Mössbauer spectra, as well as the difference of their isomer shifts support the existence of electronic phase separation in this perovskite, in good agreement with the double exchange based cluster model.
