In this work the adsorption features of Na Y zeolite with the magnetic properties of iron oxides have been combined in a composite to produce a magnetic adsorbent. These magnetic composites can be used as an adsorbent for metallic contaminants in water and subsequently removed from the medium by a simple magnetic process. The zeolites:iron oxide magnetic(More)
INTRODUCTION Analysis of nipple aspirate fluid (NAF) allows the noninvasive identification of both cellular and biomolecular markers of human breast cancer, the most common female malignancy in developed countries. Cytosolic superoxide dismutase (SOD-1) represents a detoxifying enzyme able to regulate the balance between oncogenic and oncosuppressor(More)
The pyrometallurgic process that the exhausted batteries are submitted for the recovery of metallic lead generates great amount of a by-product called slag. The slag is composed mainly of iron ( approximately 60%) and lead ( approximately 6%), and this residue cannot be disposed in conventional landfill due to the high lead content. This work presents a new(More)
The lipase produced by a newly isolate Sporidiobolus pararoseus strain has potential catalysis ability for esterification reactions. In order to improve its synthetic activity, this work aimed at optimizing 'synthetic lipase' production by submerged fermentation of a conventional media based on peptone, yeast extract, NaCl and olive oil using experimental(More)
Lipases produced by a newly isolated Sporidiobolus pararoseus strain have potential catalytic ability for esterification reactions. After production, the enzymatic extracts (conventional crude and precipitated, 'CC' and 'CP', and industrial crude and precipitated, 'IC' e 'IP') were partially characterized. The enzymes presented, in general, higher(More)
A sequential experimental design strategy is used to optimize the extraction of lead from slag. The slag is composed mainly of iron (= 60%) and lead (= 6%), and cannot be disposed of in conventional landfill due to its high lead content. The extraction of lead is based on the complexing properties of ethylenediaminetetra-acetic acid (EDTA), the iron being(More)
Graphite microparticles (d50 6.20 μm) were oxidized by strong acids, and the resultant graphite oxide was thermally exfoliated to graphene oxide sheets (MPGO, C/O 1.53). Graphene oxide was treated with nonthermal plasma under a SO2 atmosphere at room temperature. The XPS spectrum showed that SO2 was inserted only as the oxidized intermediate at 168.7 eV in(More)
