  • In the case of the early lengthening steps, the value of L p is low, suggesting that perhaps half of the structure either unfolds or desorbs to a random coil configuration with little hindered movement.
  • Ribosomes that reach the termination site desorb and re-enter the pool of diffusing ribosomes.

  • The land was then treated by a variety of methods, including solidification, bioremediation and indirect thermal desorption.
  • However, as both species start to reach equilibrium, the reverse rates make themselves felt and the less-strongly bound species B begins to come off the surface again, reversing the rate of adsorption to a net desorption.
  • A tool has been developed to measure the concentration of hydrocarbon compounds in a nitrogen-purge gas flow to the level of parts-per-thousand by using thermal desorption and gas chromatography.
