Viscosin (1), an effective surface-active cyclic lipopeptide, was efficiently recovered from Pseudomonas libanensis M9-3 with a simple purification protocol. A major pigment also obtained during this process was identified as phenazine-1-carboxylic acid. The critical micelle concentration (cmc) of viscosin was determined to be 54 mg L (-1), and the minimum(More)
In this paper, the authors propose a model for DDT biodegradation by bacteria grown in microniches created in the porous structure of green bean coffee. Five bacteria isolated from coffee beans, identified as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, P. putida, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Flavimonas oryzihabitans, and Morganella morganii. P. aeruginosa and F.(More)
Betalains are important pigments for the food, pharmaceutical, and cosmetics industry. In the yellow Stenocereus pruinosus fruits (pitayas), total betalain concentration, Folin-Ciocalteu reduction capacity, and antiradical capacity per dry weight were 2345.9μgg-1, 7.3mg gallic acid equivalentsg-1, and 48.8μmol Trolox equivalentg-1, respectively. The(More)
In this work the physicochemical and functional properties of mesquite gum (MG) and nopal mucilage (NM) mixtures (75-25, 50-50, 25-75) were evaluated and compared with those of the individual biopolymers. MG-NM mixtures exhibited more negative zeta potential (ZP) values than those displayed by MG and NM, with 75-25 MG-NM showing the most negative value(More)

Agro-food, petroleum, textile, and leather industries generate saline wastewater with a high content of organic pollutants such as aromatic hydrocarbons, phenols, nitroaromatics, and azo dyes. Halophilic microorganisms are of increasing interest in industrial waste treatment, due to their ability to degrade hazardous substances efficiently under high salt(More)
Mesquite gum (MG) and nopal mucilage (NM) mixtures were used for microencapsulation of lemon essential oil (LEO) by spray drying. Emulsions of MG, NM and MG-NM mixtures (25-75, 50-50, 75-25) were evaluated according to the droplet size (1.49-9.16 μm), viscosity and zeta potential (-16.07 to -20.13 mV), and microcapsules were characterised in particle size(More)
A purple pigment neocandenatone (vestitol[6-->9";7O-->7"]obtusaquinone) was isolated from the heartwood of campincerán (Dalbergia congestiflora), an endemic Mexican tree. The isoflavan-cinnamyl phenol quinone methide structure of this compound was elucidated by HRMS, IR, and 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopic analysis, including 2D experiments (COSY, NOESY, HMQC(More)
Peltomexicanin (7,10-dihydroxy-6,12-dioxa-5H-tetraphen-3-one) is a new peltogynoid quinone methide isolated from Palo Morado (Peltogyne mexicana Martínez) heartwood by column chromatography. Its chemical structure was elucidated by IR, NMR (¹H, (13)C), 2D NMR experiments (COSY, NOESY, HMQC, and HSQC), ESI-MS, and UV-Vis spectroscopic analysis. According to(More)
