Ethanol concentration and fermentation productivities were substantially increased when soya extract was added to the fermentation medium using immobilized cells of a locally isolated strain of S. cerevisiae. Very high concentrations, 152 and 162 g/l of ethanol, were obtained from a medium containing 300 and 350 g/l sugars respectively by supplementing the… (More)
Porcine pancreatic lipase (PPL) catalysed acetylation of some pentose and hexose sugars was accomplished in organic solvents after their preadsorption on silica gel. The effects of solvent polarity, type and concentration of acyl donor were investigated.
The role of ocular mucous gel in the corneal epithelial hydration, lubrication, cleansing, wettability and defense against pathogens, is investigated based on a modified DLVO theory that accounts for the apolar, as well as polar, "acid-base" surface interactions. A strong polar repulsion keeps mucus in the form of highly hydrated "sloppy" gel, which does… (More)
Resolution of alkyn-3-ols has been achieved using a lipase from Candida rugosa to esterify the alcohols with trifluoroethyl butyrate in hexane to give the (S)-alcohols and the (R)-esters. Subsequent reacylation of the product alcohols and alcoholysis of the esters with 1-butanol furnished the (S)-alcohols with good (86–91% ees) and the (R)-butyrate with… (More)
A regioselective strategy for PPL catalysed monoesterification of aliphatic α,ω-dicarboxylic acids with n-butanol have been developed. In addition to high regioselectivity, the method also ensures chemoselective esterification of a saturated acid moiety in presence of a conjugated acid function.
Penicillium corylophilum Dierckx, isolated from a contaminated water wet, double-base propellant, was able to completely degrade glyceryl trinitrate (GTN) in a buffered medium (pH 7.0) containing glucose and ammonium nitrate. In the presence of 12 mg of initial fungal inoculum, GTN (48.5 to 61.6 mmol) was quantitatively transformed in a stepwise process to… (More)
