- ItemSpectrophotometric Determination of Bromate Ions Using Phenothiazines(1995) Farrell, E. Sebastian; Joa, J. F.; Pacey, Gilbert E.A highly sensitive spectrophotometric method for the determination of bromate ion is described. The method is based on the reduction of aqueous bromate ion by a phenothiazine in acidic conditions to produce a colored species. The method is suitable for bromate ion determination in the 1–700 μg/l range. For the most sensitive reagent, trifluoperazine, the limit of detection and limit of quantitation were calculated to be 0.67 and 2.25 μg/l, respectively.

- ItemDesign and Evaluation of a New Thermospray Liquid/Liquid Extractor for the Extraction of Semivolatile and Nonvolatile Organic Compounds from Water(1996) Farrell, E. Sebastian; Pacey, Gilbert E.The recovery of several semivolatile organic compounds (SVOCs) using a new thermospray liquid/liquid extractor (TSLLE) was investigated. The base system includes a 300 mL multiport extraction vessel, jacketed in a 500 mL cooling flask, a dual-stage condenser for progressive cooling, several thermospray probes, and solvent/sample delivery systems. Aqueous mixtures of SVOCs were used to evaluate the TSLLE. For most compounds, recovery values of 80−100% were obtained during a single cycle in <1 h. The design, evaluation, and extraction capability of the TSLLE are discussed.
- ItemBehavior of Model Ionic Compounds under Thermospray Liquid/Liquid Extraction Conditions(1997) Farrell, E. Sebastian; Pacey, Gilbert E.Our previously reported procedure for the extraction of semivolatile and nonvolatile organic compounds from aqueous samples by thermospray liquid/liquid extraction was extended to the extraction of charged organic compounds from water. By thermally disrupting or extricating the solvation shell of hydrated ions, the thermospray process facilitates the extraction of these analytes from the aqueous matrix. The effects of probe temperature, probe flow rate, and sample pH on the extraction efficiency of model compounds such as phenylalanine, benzoate ion, p-toluenesulfonate ion, and naphthalenetrisulfonic acid trisodium salt were investigated. Under optimized conditions, the percent recoveries for these compounds were 95, 97, 91, and 13%, respectively.

- ItemImproving the Recovery of Ionic Solutes from Aqueous Media by Modified Thermospray Liquid-Liquid Extraction Conditions(2000) Farrell, E. Sebastian; Pacey, Gilbert E.Our previously reported procedure for the extraction of charged compounds from aqueous samples by thermospray liquid−liquid extraction (TSLLE) was essentially a one-step extraction involving large sample volumes. In this report, recirculative extraction, analysis of small sample volumes, the halide ion effect, and the effect of solvency or solvent modification on the extraction efficiency of benzoic acid (BA) by TSLLE were investigated. Compared to the one-step procedure that resulted in an extraction efficiency of only 28% for BA in n-hexane, recirculative TSLLE resulted in a BA recovery of 65% after five extraction cycles. When applied to sample volumes of 5−10 mL, TSLLE extracted BA with a precision of 2.8−6.1%. NaF, NaCl, and NaBr were also used to enhance analyte recovery. NaF gave the best recovery, 104%, for BA relative to the 88% obtained by batch processing. Some improvements in the extraction efficiency was observed when solvent modifiers such as methanol, ethanol, and 2-propanol were used.

- ItemMulti-Scale Breeding Bird and Land-cover Associations(Journal of the Tennessee Academy of Science, 2001) Butler, J. RussellThe association patterns between breeding bird diversity and amount of different land cover types at five spatial scales were analyzed. Breeding bird surveys were conducted at 2,021 randomly selected roadside locations in a 500,000 ha area of north-central Tennessee. The land cover of the area was classified from satellite imagery. Both bird and land cover data were separated into relevant groups: birds into migration guilds, and land cover into natural and artificial types. The study area was subdivided into geographic blocks ranging from 36 to 62,000 ha. Study-area richness-distribution maps for each migration guild were created. The multiscale association patterns between bird species richness and proportion of land cover types were statistically analyzed using canonical and bivariate procedures. Residents displayed relatively even distributions. However, Neotropical migrant species displayed a large distribution gap in the southeast corner of the study area. Furthermore, residents did not display land cover associations, but Neotropical and short-distance migrants were significantly correlated with amount of land cover type over the breadth of the study scales. These findings suggest that migrants may be more sensitive to habitat changes than resident bird species. In addition, the multiscale results indicate the contextual and interrelated characteristics of the small- and large-scale patterns and processes. This suggests that local as well as regional scale areas need to be assessed in order to more effectively design management and conservation strategies.
