The invention relates to a method for producing functionalised monomers, the method comprising: a) providing a starting material selected from terpenes and terpenoids; b) forming a derivative of the starting material by incorporation of a hydroxyl group; c) esterifying the hydroxyl group of the derivative to introduce a moiety containing a vinyl group, so as to produce a functionalised monomer. The functionalised monomer can be polymerised to obtain a bio-derived polymer.

Methods and apparatus for the study of gastrointestinal transit in a human or animal subject. The method being for the study of a subject which has previously ingested a container containing first and second fluids that are detectable and distinguishable by MRI, which method comprises the steps of forming a first magnetic resonance image of at least a portion of the subjects GI tract in which the container is located, wherein the magnetizations of the first and second fluids are in-phase; forming a second magnetic resonance image, coincident with the first image, wherein the magnetizations of the first and second fluids are out-of-phase; and subtracting the second image from the first image, or vice versa, to form a composite image.

The invention relates to arc fault location in electrical power circuits, and in particular to methods of locating series arc faults through analysing transient data. Embodiments disclosed include a method of locating a series arc fault (101) in an electrical circuit (300), the method comprising the steps of: sampling current and voltage data from a supply end (303) and a load end (304) of a transmission line of the electrical circuit (300) over a time period covering a fault event; transforming the sampled data into the frequency domain; for a plurality of estimated locations of the fault, calculating an estimated supply end current and an estimated load end current from the transformed sample data; and determining a location of the series arc fault (101) based on a minimum difference between the estimated supply end and load end current data for one of the plurality of estimated locations.

A system (100) and method for determining the air leakage of a space (102) in a building is disclosed. The system (100) comprises a processor (120); a source (130) of compressed air; a pressure sensor (150) configured to measure the pressure of air residing within the space (130) and to provide background pressure signals to the processor (120); a nozzle unit (140) for metering the supply of a pulse of compressed air from the source (130) and for directing the pulse into the space (102); and a source pressure sensor (132) configured to measure a transient pressure during the pulse and to provide a transient pressure signal to the processor (120), wherein the processor (120) is configured to determine the air leakage based on changes in the background pressure signals and from the transient pressure signal. This provides a more reliable and cost effective way of measuring air leakage.
