Abstract

Part 1. "The present study was initiated to monitor the enantiomeric ratios of pesticide residues in aquatic organisms and determine trends in their environmental persistence as a function of time."--Abstract, page iii. Part 2. "The current study investigates the development of effective epoxy resin systems using derivatives of soy oil"--Abstract, page iii. Part 3. "The process described here involves dissolving polystyrene foam in a solution of fatty acid esters derived from seed oils, such a soybean oil. The resulting solution can be used as a raw material for a variety of products and processes including, but not limited to, additional polymerization forming interpenetrating polymer networks, coatings, cleansers, viscosity selective lubricants, additives for resin systems used in composite materials, and treatments for lumber products.--Abstract, page iii.
