Rotterdam: Have a look from the Euromast

(From Wikipedia)

The Euromast is a tower in Rotterdam constructed between 1958 and 1960, designed by Hugh Maaskant. It was specially built for the 1960 Floriade. It is a concrete building with an internal diameter of 9 meters and a wall thickness of 30 centimetrer.

For stability it is built on a concrete block of 1,900,000 kilograms so that the centre of gravity is below ground. It has a "crow's nest" observation platform 96 meters above-ground and a restaurant. Originally 101 meters in height it was the tallest building in Rotterdam.

It lost this position for a while, but regained it when the "Space Tower" was added to the top of the building in 1970, giving an additional 85 meters. Euromast is a member of the
World Federation of Great Towers.

The Euromast is opened every day, all year round.

Under starter's orders: oils+fats 2011

oils+fats is under starting orders. Just two months now till the M,O,C, Event Centre opens its doors for oils+fats 2011, the International Trade Fair for the Technology and Trade of Oils and Fats.

All your questions about oils+fats 2011 are answered in the Visitor Guide, a practical leaflet that can fit easily into your pocket. It contains a detailed hall plan, a list of events in the accompanying programme and all the key dates and facts to do with the fair.

Not only the exhibition stands at the fair will be presenting state-of-the-art technology and developments - in the accompanying programme, too, there are a number of events of interest. For example, there's a two-day short course on oilseed and oil processing. To register go to: .

If you haven't got a ticket to oils+fats yet, then we strongly recommend you buy a Print@home-Ticket - it's 40% cheaper! As the name says, you just print it out at home, after you have registered as a visitor at

Supercritical fluid extraction of lipids from broccoli leaves 
Arnáiz, E., Bernal, J., Martín, M. T., García-Viguera, C., Bernal, J. L. and Toribio, L. (2011), European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology, 113: 479-486.
doi: 10.1002/ejlt.201000407

The supercritical fluid extraction (SFE) and fractionation of lipids from broccoli leaves is presented in this work. For this purpose the effect of the different variables on the extraction was studied, obtaining the best results at 60°C, 300 bar and 3 mL/min. Two different fractions were obtained....

Ultra high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometric analysis of oxidized free fatty acid
Tarvainen, M., Suomela, J.-P. and Kallio, H. (2011), European Journal of Lipid Science and Technology, 113: 409-422.
doi: 10.1002/ejlt.201000454

A fast ultra high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC)-electrospray ionization (ESI)-mass spectrometric (MS) method was developed for simultaneous analysis of free fatty acids (FFAs), monoacylglycerols (MAG), diacylglycerols (DAG), triacylglycerols (TAG), and their oxidized equivalents. Effect of elevated column temperature was studied in order to optimize the chromatography of closely eluting peaks and to reduce high back pressure formed in UHPLC....
