Numerous interpretations regarding the content, the form, and the rationale for CSR co-exist despite the publication of international codes of conduct such as the U.N. Global Compact. The variety in perceptions of CSR can be explained by a number of factors: individual characteristics such as gender, age, and personal values; organisational characteristics such as firm size and organisational culture; and environmental factors such as industry and national institutions. The latter factor lies at the core of this thesis, which attempts to evaluate the influence of culture, i.e. informal institution, on the perception of CSR by using Hofstede’s cultural values framework. Annual reports and CSR reports and corporate web pages of thirty large corporations issued from two industries and three countries are systematically reviewed. Besides an important industry effect, several relationships between culture and the perception of CSR can be observed, though their direction is sometimes contrary to expectations or unclear. Summing up, firms perceive they need a broader commitment to CSR to acquire their social license to operate in stronger uncertainty avoidance, less masculine and less individualistic countries. Lower individualism, lower masculinity, and higher uncertainty avoidance indexes are associated with a perception of CSR as a strategy resulting in net benefits. Overall, this thesis contributes to the argument against the universality of CSR in the academic debate and shows the necessity to consider culture and industry in analysing CSR. It also insists on the importance of industrial recipes and isomorphism in integrating CSR in businesses’ corporate strategy. [less ▲]

Stainless steel bipolar plates can be excellent alternative to graphite bipolar plates since they display better mechanical properties and the manufacturing procedure is easier and cheaper. However, they are chemically instable in the corrosive environment of PEMFCs, and a thin oxide layer is developed on the plate’s surface. This layer causes a significant increase in the interfacial contact resistance (ICR) between the plates and gas diffusion layers. In an effort to characterize various stainless steel samples, before and after their exposure to the corrosive environment of a PEMFC, the interfacial contact resistance (ICR) between the plates and a commercial gas diffusion layer (GDL) was studied as a function of the pressure applied on the assembly. The ICR was studied in the range of 0-500 N/cm2 of pressure applied to the assembly; the ICR value was determined by means of galvanostatic potentiometry, where a constant current is applied to the assembly and the average value of the potential over time is recorded. The ICR is then calculated, after appropriate simplifications, as: ICR = Rtot = Iapplied / Vmonitored (1) It was observed that, besides the expected exponential reduction of ICR versus pressure, the value of the current applied to the assembly impacted greatly the obtained values for the ICR, irrespective of the applied pressure. This indicates that the observed phenomenon is not caused by any morphological changes on the interface. A possible explanation is that, at higher currents, the temperature increases locally due to ohmic heating, inducing thus changes in the GDL’s resistivity. [less ▲]

PURPOSE: Ro 28-2653 (RO) is a synthetic inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs), which is potentially effective against bronchial remodeling. Given that this molecule has very poor aqueous solubility, different cyclodextrins (CDs) have been tested to increase its solubility. The aim of this study was to prepare and to characterize inclusion complexes between RO and CDs, in order to develop nebulizable solutions. METHODS: The complex formation was investigated by phase solubility studies. (1)H-NMR spectroscopy and molecular modeling studies were carried out to elucidate the structure of the inclusion complex between RO and dimethyl-beta-CD (DIMEB). Nebulizable solutions of RO were developed with CDs and a stability study was performed over 9 months. RESULTS: The phase solubility studies showed that beta-CD and its derivatives form a 1:2 complex with RO, whereas gamma-CD includes RO with a 1:1 stoichiometry and a weak stability constant. T-ROESY spectra showed that DIMEB is able to complex two RO substituents (nitrophenyl and biphenyl groups) with preferential orientations, while molecular modeling demonstrated that the configurations observed with (1)H-NMR are energetically favorable, especially owing to H-bond formation between RO and DIMEB. Two CDs were selected to develop nebulizable solutions of RO and the stability study demonstrated that RO degradation in solution is strongly dependent on the concentration of the 1:2 inclusion complex. CONCLUSIONS: CDs are able to include RO and to improve its aqueous solubility. The beta-CD derivatives can be used to formulate nebulizable solutions of RO, the stability of which depends on the concentration of the 1:2 complex. [less ▲]

Date flesh fiber concentrate (DFFC) of Deglet Nour variety were extracted and incorporated in a bakery product. Dough rheological characteristics showed that water absorption, stability, index quality, resistance to deformation increased with the amount of added fiber, whereas degree of softening and extensibility decreased in all levels of fiber. Bread evaluation revealed that DFFC addition caused an increase of bread yield especially for the highest levels, a change of crumb color and an insignificant decrease of bread volume. Breads are subjected to sensory evaluation for odor, taste, crumb color, crumb smoothness and overall acceptability. Significant differences were not found (P > 0.05) between scores for all sensory parameters. [less ▲]

Ten normal equine isolated limbs were imaged using a knee coil in a 1.5 Tesla magnetic field, with short echo time sequences (TE < 15 ms). Magnetic resonance imaging was performed on each isolated limb in different positions, with and without extension of the metacarpophalangeal joint. Deep digital flexor tendon orientation ranged from 20 to 60 degrees in relation to the static magnetic field. Increased intratendinous signal intensity was observed when the angle between the deep digital flexor tendon and the constant magnetic field approached 55 degrees ("magic angle"). The increased signal intensity was independent from extension of the metacarpophalangeal joint. Recognition of the magic angle phenomenon is essential for proper evaluation of magnetic resonance imaging studies of the equine foot. [less ▲]
