Co-products from the juice processing of guava (CG), mango (CM) and barbados cherry (CB) were investigated with a view to their exploitation as a potential source of natural antioxidants. The ethanolic extracts were analyzed for total extractable phenolic content (TEP), DPPH radical scavenging activity (RSA-DPPH), ferric reducing antioxidant power (FRAP)(More)
Organically modified vermiculites were synthesized by previous silylation of three leached vermiculites, V0.3Cl, V0.5Cl and V0.8Cl, under anhydrous conditions following reaction with imidazole (Im), which acted as chelating agent for copper retention. Elemental analysis, X-ray diffraction, infrared spectroscopy, scanning electronic microscopy, transmission(More)
The present study was carried out for evaluating the retention behavior of sanitary sewage and sand in relation to chromium and nickel ions in upflow reactors. It was found that the sludge presented a greater assimilation of the metals studied when compared to the inert material, probably due to the presence of anionic groups, which favors adsorption and(More)
