              Im Rahmen der Dissertation wurde eine Methode zur Quantifizierung der Metabolite des zentralen Kohlenstoffwechsels von Mikroorganismen entwickelt. Die Methode wurde genutzt, um das Metabolom verschiedenster Produktionsst mme im nanomolaren Bereich zu analysieren. Bei der Analyse ...der Daten wurden Ergebnisse aus Metabolom- und Fluxomforschung kombiniert, um einen ganzheitlichen Ansatz zu schaffen. Auf diese Weise konnte unter anderem der Einfluss verschiedener Kultivierungsverfahren auf das Energielevel von E. coli untersucht werden. Weitere Messungen untersuchten den Einfluss von genetischen Ver nderungen, Stress und unterschiedlichen C-Quellen auf den zentralen Kohlenstoffwechsel von weiteren Mikroorganismen.

              Our understanding of the evolution of the earliest terrestrially adapted reptiles and amphibians during the time span 320 to 270 million years ago on the Pangaea supercontinent is known from only very restricted types of fossil localities, most of which are in North America. The ...fossil locality Bromacker in the Lower Permian Tambach Formation near Tambach-Dietharz (Germany) has developed during the last 25 years with 11 new species to be the most important and productive fossil locality for Lower Permian, terrestrially adapted vertebrates outside USA. The Bromacker locality produces the best preserved terrestrial vertebrate fossils from the Lower Permian time period (about 290 million years ago). The diversity of the fossils indicates that it represents the only fully documented example of an initial stage in the evolution of the modern terrestrial vertebrate ecosystem. The book contains first overview about the importance of the Bromacker with lot of fossil illustrations.

              This book describes the use of carbon nanotubes in form of randomly oriented networks in display technology. Carbon nanotubes can behave either like a metal or like a semiconductor and are used in this work as transparent conductive pixel electrodes as well as semiconducting chan...nel in thin-film transistors. Monte-Carlo simulations examine more closely the percolation probabilities of metallic and semiconducting nanotubes. The experimental part covers methods to create stable surfactant suspensions from nanotube powders, simple and cost-effective low temperature deposition processes from liquid phase on glass and flexible plastic substrates and patterning procedures of the created films. Electrical and optical characterization gives insight on their performance. The realization of liquid crystal and OLED displays shows the compatibility of transparent carbon nanotube electrodes with production processes. Results of the semiconductor application are presented on a transistor level. The dependence of the transistor performance on the network density for both, mixed and highly semiconducting nanotubes is discussed.

              This dissertation investigates the impact of the European regulatory measures MAD (Market Abuse Directive, introduced in 2003) and MiFID (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive, introduced in 2004) on the behaviour and information environment of sell-side financial analysts. ...The MAD and the MiFID are, amongst other objectives, geared up for the mitigation of conflicts of interest in the field of the financial analysts' investment research and the prohibition of selective disclosures. The impact of the regulatory measures is examined by using the common sell-side financial analysts' quantitative outputs target prices, earnings forecasts and stock recommendations. The main results of the empirical analysis imply that the regulatory measures induced conflicted sell-side analysts to avoid the intended impacts of the regulatory measures when issuing target prices. Moreover, the regulatory measures, which should prevent selective disclosures, can have unintended consequences, too.

              Low Bond number open capillary channel flows have been shown to exhibit collapsing free surfaces when a critical flow rate is exceeded, a phenomenon that is referred to as choking. As shown in this work, the critical flow rate can be pre-determined with sufficient accuracy for th...e presented channel geometry when certain boundary conditions are known a priori. The presented model that describes the flow rate limitation of stable liquid flow through the open channel is examined and compared to numerical simulations and experimental studies. In addition, the characteristics of the supercritical domain, in which bubbles are ingested passively into the flow in the channel, are described and a new model for bubble formation via choking is proposed.

              Coal is a rock composed of organic and inorganic materials, which contains 50% or more than 75% organic material (Fig. 1). The organic matter mostly consists of carbon (c), but is also comprised of hydrogen (H), oxygen (O), sulphur (S) and nitrogen (N). Besides organic matter, co...al contains some inorganic compounds (minerals) and water (H2O). Naturally, coal is formed from vegetation that has been consolidated between other rock strata and altered by the combined effects of pressure and heat over millions of years to ultimately form coal seams (World Coal Institute, 200

              The present volume draws on the experience of the Workshop held in Benin City, Nigeria in May 2018, where doctoral students and experienced mentors met to work on their journal articles from a simple abstract or a first draft to a concrete publication proposal. Since research art...icles are the most important academic texts in academic careers today, young African scholars must practice to choose current topics, to use appropriate methodologies and argumentation structures, to draw tentative conclusions, and to be aware of limitations and further research necessary in their field. Mentors can advise them to apply proper statistical procedures, to edit their texts carefully and to submit them in acceptable format to appropriate journals. The contributions can also serve as a general model for open and critical international and intercultural academic discourse on publishing research articles in international journals.

              In this PhD thesis, the flow stability in a laboratory three-dimensional prismatic spouted bed is investigated both experimentally and in CFD-DEM simulations. Liquid is injected in bottom-spray configuration with the aim of a homogeneous distribution of the coating suspension on ...the whole particle bed. The range of stable spouting is increased by the installation of two parallel draft plates. Nevertheless, the instable spouting regime is found to be advantageous for obtaining a homogeneous coating as the draft plates prevent the mixing in the depth of the apparatus. In addition to the investigations on laboratory scale, the residence time behavior in a continuous pilot scale spouted bed is characterized using a novel tracer method with magnetizable particles. The back-mixing in the apparatus is reduced by the insertion of separation plates with defined transfer geometries.

              Industrial processes are currently based on considerable consumption of fossil resources. Bringing down the level of greenhouse gases emitted into the atmosphere when extracting and processing these kind of resources has been main driver for the development of fossil resources su...bstitutes and for the adoption of strategies to promote their efficient use. To increase business competitiveness, to optimize the supply chain, and to increment product quality, decision-makers of the horticulture segment face the problem to choose between fossil-based resources and their substitutes. This dissertation presents an Operations Research model, developed for decision-making support in horticulture. The model determines optimal mixture of growth substrate (composed by peat and olive-mill waste compost) and optimal material of planter container (made of petroleum-based plastic or biodegradable, biopolymer), such that additional costs when substituting and environmental impacts of a potted plant are simultaneously minimized. The optimization model is applied to a case study in Italy. Here, greenhouse gases emitted by organic compounds are detected with experimental trials, the agronomic quality of potted plants is investigated, Life Cycle Assessment is performed, and decision-relevant costs are examined. The bi-objective problem is addressed using Pareto optimization. Finally, a scenario analysis investigates the variation of the outcomes by using different input parameters, in order to give a broader image of optimal solutions. Industrielle Produktionssysteme basieren derzeit auf einem erheblichen Verbrauch fossiler Ressourcen. Die Reduzierung der Treibhausgasemissionen, die bei der Gewinnung und Verarbeitung dieser Ressourcen in die Atmosph re gelangen, ist ein Haupttreiber f r die Entwicklung von Substituten f r fossile Rohstoffe und f r die Umsetzung von Strategien, die die effiziente Nutzung dieser Substitute vorantreiben.

              Two novel nanoarchitectures - including the highly branched spikecube exemplified by -SnWO4 and the biomimetic nanopeapod manifested in Au@Nb@HxK1-xNbO3 - were put forward for the first time in this dissertation, particularly aiming at enriching the library of pattern designs for... sunlight-driven photo(electro)chemical applications. Specifically, -SnWO4 spikecubes were entitled on the basis of the peculiar morphology, wherein bundles of nanopillars were self-aligned with quasi-periodicity onto each sharp face of hexahedral cube cores. Moreover, this geometric engineering was particularly carried out on a Scheelite-type (ABO4) -SnWO4 crystal with a visible-light-active band gap of 2.91 eV and subtle conduction and valence band positions, endowing the photoexcited electron-hole pairs on -SnWO4 with strong reducing and oxidizing power, respectively. Consequently, an outstanding photocatalytic activity in degrading organic dyes was observed for the -SnWO4 spikecube with an enhancement more than 150% in comparison with a benchmark visible-light-active WO3 photocatalyst. By contrast, the design of Au@Nb@HxK1-xNbO3 emulates the growth pattern of a natural plant - a peapod -, wherein sub-10 nm core-shell Au@Nb plasmonic bimetallics as the particulate peas seeded discretely inside the unidirectional cavity of the tubular HxK1-xNbO3 semiconductor as the pod. The biomimicry of this configuration endows the Au@Nb@HxK1-xNbO3 nanopeapods with strong light harvesting abilities, wherein the HxK1-xNbO3 nanopod and the Au@Nb nanopeas absorb ultraviolet and visible light via interband transition and surface plasmon resonance, respectively. More importantly, the strong near-field plasmon-plasmon coupling between neighboured Au@Nb nanoparticles allows the Au@Nb@HxK1-xNbO3 nanopeapod absorbing near-infrared light. Last but not least, dye photodegradation and water photoelectrolysis as proofs-of-concept manifested the full-spectrum utilization of diffusive solar energy by the Au@Nb@Hx
