Within the framework of a program aiming to improve the existing extractive recovery technology of fermentation products, the state of the art is critically reviewed. The acids under consideration are propionic, lactic, pyruvic, succinic, fumaric, maleic, malic, itaconic, tartaric, citric, and isocitric, all obtained by the aerobic fermentation of glucose(More)
A cold-stage SEM was used to document the morphology of ice in apple tissue and a sucrose solution frozen at rates ranging from 450 to 0.03 degrees K/min. Freezing rates of 3-mm-thick apple discs were measured with a differential thermocouple technique, which gave measurement of the growth velocity and the temperature gradient through the solidified(More)
OBJECTIVE We sought to test the hypothesis that ileal mucosal oxygen consumption is impaired in endotoxemic rats. METHODS Male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected intravenously with either Escherichia coli lipopolysaccharide (5 mg/kg) or a similar volume of vehicle. A segment of ileum was excised 8 hrs later, and the serosal and muscular layers of the bowel(More)
Aged and weathered chromated copper arsenate (CCA) treated wood was burned in an open burn research facility to characterize the air emissions and residual ash. The objectives were to simulate, to the extent possible, the combustion of such waste wood as might occur in an open field or someone's backyard; to characterize the composition and particle size(More)
Thirty-six specimens of porcelain, including 18 vacuum-fired and 18 air-fired specimens, were brought to a high bisque bake under like conditions. Both types were divided into six groups to identify the dependent variables, while employing the usual procedures for "polishing" porcelain. These specimens were studied with a scanning electron microscope with(More)
Fig. 1. Electroretinograms (ERGs, upper trace) to light stimuli, and position of the receptor pigment granules as monitored by the reflection of red light (Schott filter RG 2) in the deep pseudopupil (lower trace, increase in reflection upwards), both recorded simultaneously. The red monitoring light by itself was too weak to induce pigment migration.(More)
Sorption of cesium and strontium on kaolinite powders was investigated as a means to minimize the emissions of these metals during certain high-temperature processes currently being developed to isolate and dispose of radiological and mixed wastes. In this work, nonradioactive aqueous cesium acetate or strontium acetate was atomized down the center of a(More)
