Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Microwaves are now being used in a variety of chemical laboratories. By improving the safety features of conventional microwave ovens to give them greater control and feedback capabilities, chemists have been able to increase the potential applications for this technology. Consequently, the ability of microwave ovens to enhance the rates of various physical and chemical reactions is now being exploited in areas such as combinatorial organic synthesis, extraction of organic environmental pollutants, and digestion of samples for elemental analysis.
