Microchemical Journal | Year: 2013
Innovations and trends in sample pretreatment techniques are currently focused on the development of methods that satisfy the principles of Green Analytical Chemistry. The increase in the number of publications devoted to solvent microextraction (SME) techniques testifies to the growing interest of analytical chemists in this field. In addition to miniaturization, we can see a greater than ever effort being made towards the automation of SME procedures.Rather than providing an exhaustive overview of the current state of this trend, we instead offer readers a look at what we consider to be some of the more interesting recently published solutions. © 2013 Elsevier B.V.

Ultrasonic irradiation and vortex agitation were introduced to enhance the efficiency of solvent microextraction. The present overview covers ultrasound-assisted emulsification microextraction, ultrasound-assisted surfactant-enhanced microextraction, vortex-assisted liquid-liquid microextraction, vortex-assisted surfactant-enhanced emulsification liquid-liquid microextraction, ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction and ionic liquid-based ultrasound-assisted dispersive liquid-liquid microextraction. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd.

In Hungary the partnership of 18 institutions (one organisation managing and coordinating EU and educational and training grants, 14 top universities, two research institutes, one Observatory and numerous additional HEIs, science museums, research institutes and research groups joining the consortium as indirect partners) will organise RN 2013 with the aim of enhancing the public recognition of researchers, establish further links between research career and business innovations, find and help the researchers of tomorrow in their career and also present the European context for research. The organisers will do all efforts to organise a festival-like event, where participants can enjoy innovative and high quality, but at the same time fascinating and joyful programmes. Our aim is to prove: Meeting science for the first time is as ecstatic as love is for the first sight. The protagonists of the RN 2013 will be researchers, but we will focus on the young generation more then ever, as we believe that researchers of tomorrow live among us and it is our responsibility and also great opportunity to find them and help them towards their future career. Due to the geography of the event (all regional centres and many more towns are involved) it is possible for all to find high quality and entertaining programmes within short travelling distance. Without good education it is difficult to make significant progress. The event will contribute to the enhancement of natural sciences and it will also support the education institutions to present and share their best practices in talent development.

We will focus on enhancing researchers public recognition. Researchers, presented as persons that everyday people can relate to, can draw attention to science; and can make science seen as a casual but interesting adventure. Better understanding science can also lead to improving researchers recognition. Thus, the main message of the event will emphasize the human, accessible yet important figure of the researcher working for the benefit of the society. RN is an event that attracts a growing number of visitors and cooperating bodies each year. This year we plan a brand new exciting project that retains some indispensable elements from the previous events. We will actively involve young people because we believe that future scientific and technological development lies in their hands. The main driving forces and themes of our programmes are connection and interaction. Connection and interaction between different scientific fields, Science and Arts, scientists, science and children/pupils/students, researchers and laymen, science and companies, research and everyday life, research and hobby; between partner universities, research institutes and industrial companies. Connection and interaction with media is also indispensable in order to enhance researchers public recognition and to raise awareness of the importance of science and research by putting in the spotlight scientific achievements and researchers. Our choice of key theme is reinforced and further coloured by the fact that 2011 is the International Year of Chemistry so we will closely examine chemical bonds, unions and interactions as well. Again, we will involve the public in a wide range of exciting scientific activities that are interconnected and are implemented through intense cooperation between the consortium members. Visitors will have the opportunity to meet researchers and get more deeply acquainted with the world of science.

The overall concept of BioMob is the development of research-driven clusters for biomass-mobilisation. The project, built on the outputs of a previous Altener-funded project, has a strong business focus and its ultimate goal is to see knowledge-based enterprises grow and thrive in the biomass sectors. This will support the sustainable use of biomass and the meeting of regions' renewable energy targets. At a time of intense demand for renewable energy, real possibilities exist for the transformation of rural economies through the commercialisation of applied research in the mobilisation of biomass. The challenge is to identify appropriate synergies between rural regions, research themes and enterprise opportunity. The Biomob clusters, from DK, HU, BG and IRL, have widely varying biomass resources, levels of industrial development and research profiles. Biomob provides the opportunity for them to develop world-leading research outputs, in line with lead market principles. The work programme which will facilitate this includes specific actions for identifying the gaps between industrial demands and research capabilities, international benchmarking, regional action plans and JAP development, business plans for individual enterprises, development of regional funding proposals, the development of a replication model and an action to federate the clusters into the European Institute of Technology. Dissemination activities include 8 workshops, exchanges and mentoring activities, as well as brochures, CD-ROMs and a web site, which will remain for 2 years after project conclusion. The participants include the 13 partners, 4 regional user groups comprised of industry, research instates and development organisations, an international expert group and a European organisation for the promotion of the biomass industry.
