The native PE mass analysis was determined by gel filtration, existing as a hexameric (ab)6 subunit and trimer (ab)3 with a molecular mass of approximately 235 and 125 kDa, respectively (Fig.
As the oxidation proceeds for 24 h, more trimers and higher oligomers are formed as the dimer peak slightly decreases.
They were probably residual dimers and trimers (Vigneault et al.
1998b) reported that the quantity of migrated styrene trimers was higher than that of bisphenol A transferred from the lacquer coating of vegetable cans to the food contents, as reported by Brotons et al.
In this structure, the C-terminal tails of the sub-units of the trimer are hydrogen bonded to residues of the active site of neighboring trimers in the crystal, and thus, cross-link the molecules in the crystal lattice.
In initial studies, dimers and trimers were formed by the carbodiimide-mediated reaction of 5[prime]-mononucleotides on montmorillonite (1).
Chemical substances suspected to be endocrine disrupters -- bisphenol-A, styrene dimers and trimers, and phthalates -- have been detected in polycarbonate, polystyrene and polyvinyl chloride but research on their effects on human health remains inconclusive.
In figure 3 isoprene is the first large peak, dipentene elutes at about 11 minutes, and the trimers, tetramers and pentamers can be seen as bunches of peaks at about 20, 30 and 37 minutes respectively.
The press conference focused on new, as-yet-unpublished research led by Katsuhiko Saido of Nihon University, Chiba, Japan, suggesting that plastics - notably polystyrene -- in the oceans break down, leaving products of their decomposition, including styrene monomer and styrene dimers and trimers.
