Development of selective sorbent materials for the determination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) in the environment
(Universität Ulm, 2016-11-21)
In this thesis, synthesis of molecularly imprinted polymers with molecular recognition for polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) as well as the application of the polymers as pre-concentration and clean-up sorbents in the ...
Protein aggregation during bioprocessing of monoclonal antibodies in mammalian cell culture
(Universität Ulm, 2017-02-23)
Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are successful biopharmaceuticals playing an important role in the treatment of cancer, autoimmunity and inflammatory diseases. Mammalian cells are the dominant system for the recombinant ...
Development of enhanced analytical methods for ultratrace determination of mercury in natural water
(Universität Ulm, 2017-08-15)
Mercury (Hg) is a ubiquitous pollutant that is emitted to the atmosphere from both anthropogenic and natural sources. Human exposure to Hg occurs mainly from consumption of contaminated fish, as Hg exhibits very high ...
Chemical and structural analysis of Xylella fastidiosa biofilm formation
(Universität Ulm, 2018-03-20)
Xylella fastidiosa (Xf) is a gram-negative phytopathogen bacterium that affects the xylem vessels of citrus, olives, grapevines, coffee, almonds among many other plants by vascular occlusion [1–3]. Diseases such as citrus ...
Design and synthesis of submicron polymer particles for the selective capture of proteases
(Universität Ulm, 2017-03-07)
The design of biomimetic synthetic receptors capable of mimicking the molecular recognition properties of antibodies is of significant interest for the application in many analytical methods. The selective binding of ...
Mid-infrared sensors for environmental monitoring
(Universität Ulm, 2017-01-20)
