Overcoming the seasonal variations in fitness of the amphipod Corophium Volutator as an environmental toxicology test species using laboratory cultured specimens. (2014)
Thesis
MCGEE, D. 2014. Overcoming the seasonal variations in fitness of the amphipod Corophium Volutator as an environmental toxicology test species using laboratory cultured specimens. Robert Gordon University, MRes thesis.

The marine amphipod Corophium volutator is an important source of food for many fish and wading birds, making it an important species in an estuarine environment and a relevant toxicological test species. Historical data has indicated that seasonal v...

Optimisation of high value metabolite production from benthic marine dinoflagellate Prorocentrum lima. (2014)
Thesis
PRAPTIWI, R.A. 2014. Optimisation of high value metabolite production from benthic marine dinoflagellate Prorocentrum lima. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Toxins produced by harmful algal blooms (HABs) are known to pose contamination risks to seafood products (e.g. fish and shellfish) consumed by human. In order to control contamination risks, monitoring regimes have to be performed rigorously. The eff...

Mathematical modelling of quantum yield enhancements of methyl orange photooxidation in aqueous TiO2 suspensions under controlled periodic UV LED illumination. (2014)
Journal Article
TOKODE, O., PRABHU, R., LAWTON, L.A. and ROBERTSON, P.K.J. 2014. Mathematical modelling of quantum yield enhancements of methyl orange photooxidation in aqueous TiO2 suspensions under controlled periodic UV LED illumination. Applied catalysis B: environmental [online], 156-157, pages 398-403. Available from: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.apcatb.2014.03.046

Quantum yields of the photocatalytic degradation of methyl orange under controlled periodic illumination (CPI) have been modelled using existing models. A modified Langmuir-Hinshelwood (L-H) rate equation was used to predict the degradation reaction...
