Now available on Fast Track: Migration routes and stopover sites of Upland Geese (Chloephaga picta) in South America

Posted on 17. April, 2018.

The Upland Goose (Chloephaga picta picta) is a migratory species of South America, which breeds from September to April in Patagonia (Argentina and Chile) and winters from May to September in the southern Pampas (Argentina). Despite some protection in both countries, this species is still persecuted and large numbers are killed by unregulated hunting.

Sustainable nanotechnology - Free Current Commentary

Posted on 18. May, 2015.

The US National Nanotechnology Initiative defines nanotechnology as, “the manipulation of matter with at least one dimension in the range 1–100 nanometres (nm),” where the tendency is for quantum mechanical effects to become increasingly important toward the smaller end of the range.

Density functional theoretical study on the mechanism of adsorption of 2-chlorophenol from water using γ-Fe2O3 nanoparticles

Posted on 18. May, 2015.


The removal of aromatic pollutants from water is of great importance environmentally and industrially. 2-chlorophenol and phenol-like compounds are categorised as persistent pollutants and many techniques have been presented for the removal of phenolic pollutants from water. Among the most important of such techniques is the application of nanoparticles of magnetic metals such as Fe2O3

A combined quantum mechanics and molecular mechanics study on nitrogen oxide adsorption/dissociation on a tungsten oxide surface

Posted on 1. May, 2015.

The release of chemical pollutants, such as nitrogen oxides (NO and NO2), into the atmosphere is a major source of acid rain and photochemical smog. Finding methods to control and eliminate these pollutants (NOx) from the troposphere is obviously of great interest and as such, the development of NOx gas sensors for environmental monitoring is desirable.
