The field of corneal tissue engineering has made many strides in recent years. The challenges of engineering a biocompatible, mechanically stable, and optically transparent tissue are significant. To overcome these challenges, researchers have adopted two basic approaches: cell-based strategies for manipulating cells to create their own extracellular(More)
Several materials were evaluated for potential use in a bioreactor system for a tissue-engineered cornea. Two types of cytotoxicity tests were performed using human corneal stromal fibroblasts: a 24h cytotoxicity test based on the ASTM standard F813-01 and a 7 days growth inhibition test. It was determined that culture configuration, autoclaving and(More)
The conformations of cyclooctadecane, cyclononadecane, and cycloicosane were generated by a stochastic program that works in conjunction with MM2. The shapes of the rings are analyzed in terms of previous work by Dale and others, and in terms of distributions of energies, torsion angle distributions, and torsion angle sequences. A new shape element called(More)
Bagasse fly ash (BFA), a sugar industry waste, was used to prepare zeolitic material (ZFA) by means of alkaline hydrothermal treatment. ZFA showed improved morphology as a result of this treatment. The adsorption of the reactive dyes turquoise blue (TB) and brilliant magenta (BM), on both BFA and ZFA, was investigated in a batch contact system. A series of(More)
Heavy metal pollution is a common environmental problem all over the world. The purpose of the research is to examine the applicability of bagasse fly ash (BFA)-an agricultural waste of sugar industry used for the synthesis of zeolitic material. The zeolitic material are used for the uptake of Pb(II) and Cd(II) heavy metal. Bagasse fly ash is used as a(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of the research is to investigate the application of bagasse fly ash, a sugar industry solid waste for the synthesis of zeolites and their behavior for the sorption of p-nitrophenol (p-NP). METHODS Zeolitic materials were prepared from bagasse fly ash using alkaline hydrothermal (CZBFA) and fusion (FZBFA) treatment. Comparative batch(More)
The suitability of weathered basaltic andesite products (WBAP) as a potential sorbent was assessed for the removal of Ni (II) from electroplating industrial wastewater. A model study based on the batch mode of operation was carried out for Ni (II) removal from aqueous solution. The effect of various parameters such as hydronium ion concentration, shaking(More)
