Risk management and sustainability performance in circular supply chains
This dissertation analyzes supply chain risk management (SCRM) and sustainability performance in the context of circular supply chains (CSCs). The implementation of circular economy (CE) thinking in firms and supply chains has a crucial role in fostering innovative and efficient ways of producing and consuming. However, CE implementation is not a straightforward process, begetting risks and uncertainties that can impact the overall sustainability performance of CSCs. Therefore, managers need to adopt appropriate ...

Neo-institutionalism and business sustainability in emerging economies
This dissertation deals with the institutional environment surrounding the private sector in the various emerging markets and developing economies (EMDEs) worldwide where most of the global population lives. Its primary purpose is to identify and combine theoretical aspects of new (sociological) institutionalism/neo-institutionalism to better understand the role of institutional environments in shaping business impacts on sustainable development. Institutions shape the behaviour of individuals as well as entire groups ...
Darstellung, Eigenschaften und Reaktivität phosphorreicher Ferrocenophane
Im Rahmen dieser Arbeit wurde ein präparativer Zugang zu phosphorreichen Ferrocenophanen entwickelt, die Substituenten mit variierenden sterischen und elektronischen Eigenschaften tra-gen und die Reaktivität dieser gegenüber Elektrophilen untersucht. Die Reaktivitätsuntersuchungen des als Modellverbindung ausgewählten Diphospha-fer-rocenophans L6a gegenüber Elektrophilen haben gezeigt, dass sowohl ein als auch beide Phos-phoratome selektiv, durch stöchiometrische Kontrolle mit Monoboran oder unterschiedlichen ...
Functional characterization of disease-associated mutations in type I cGMP-dependent protein kinase
Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, and while mainly associated with behavioral risk factors, they can also be linked to genetic disorders. The cGMP-dependent protein kinase type I (PKG I) plays a pivotal role in the homeostasis of the vasculature by mediating NO/cGMP-dependent relaxation of vascular smooth muscle cells. A recently described genetic risk factor associated with PKG I results in heritable thoracic aortic aneurysms and dissections (TAAD). Although PKG isoforms Iα and Iβ ...
Diffusion of Material Flow Cost Accounting and its Contribution to Sustainable Development
This thesis aims to analyze how further take-up of Material Flow Cost Accounting (MFCA) in practice can be encouraged to support sustainable development. To achieve the aim of the thesis, three studies on MFCA are conducted at multiple levels. The first study provides a better understanding of MFCA application at the corporate level in developing countries, which are characterized by rapid structure transformation leading to serious environmental problems. The second study considers the contextual and transformational ...
Optical amplification and stability of spiroquaterphenyl compounds and blends
In this contribution, we present a systematic investigation on a series of spiroquaterphenyl compounds optimised for solid state lasing in the near ultraviolet (UV). Amplified spontaneous emission (ASE) thresholds in the order of 1 μJ/cm2 are obtained in neat (undiluted) films and blends, with emission peaks at 390 1 nm for unsubstituted and meta-substituted quaterphenyls and 400 4 nm for para-ether substituted quaterphenyls. Mixing with a transparent matrix retains a low threshold, shifts the emission to lower ...
Conceptual developments in discourse tradition theory
(De Gruyter, 2023)
The concept of discourse tradition (DT) is a core component of the system of language competence developed by Eugenio Coseriu and unfolds its analytical sharpness embedded in the differentiations of that model. The idea of DT is based on the concepts of historicity, individuality and tradition. A central topic of the debates and controversies that have arisen in Romance linguistics is the question of how historicity and individuality enter into the idea of DT. In comparison, the concept of tradition has been studied ...
Economic Aspects of Market-based Flexibility for Electricity Networks
This thesis contributes to the discussion of the utilization of network-supportive flexibility, in particular in the context of local flexibility markets (LFM). The thesis comprises five articles that are methodologically related but can be read independently. The focus of the investigations is on economic aspects and short- and medium-term market processes. Chapter 1 provides an introduction to the topic including the definition of the most important terms. Chapter 2 includes the paper, “Design of regional flexibility ...
