Proanthocyanidins and ellagitannins, referred to as "tannins", exist in many plant sources. These compounds interact with proteins due to their numerous hydroxyl groups, which are suitable for hydrophobic associations. It was hypothesized that tannins could bind to the digestive enzymes α-amylase and glucoamylase, thereby inhibiting starch hydrolysis.(More)
Capillary-channeled polymer (C-CP) fibers extruded from nylon-6 are used as the stationary phase for the ion-exchange/reversed-phase mixed-mode chromatographic separation of a three protein mixture. The nylon-6 C-CP fibers are packed collinearly in a 250 x 1.5-mm i.d. column with an interstitial fraction of approximately 0.6. The effects of four displacing(More)
Aluminum aminoterephthalate MOF particulate materials (NH(2)-MIL-101(Al) and NH(2)-MIL-53(Al)), studied here as components of self-detoxifying surfaces, retained their reactivity following their covalent attachment to protective surfaces utilizing a newly developed strategy in which the MOF particles were deposited on a reactive adhesive composed of(More)
Montmorillonite K-10 functionalized with α-nucleophilic 2-pralidoxime (PAM) and its zwitterionic oximate form (PAMNa) is introduced as a versatile material for chemical protection against organophosphorous (OP) compounds such as pesticides and chemical warfare agents (CWA). Upon inclusion into the montmorillonite interlayer structure, the pyridinium group(More)
Frontal analysis was carried out employing poly(ethylene-terephthalate) capillary-channeled polymer fibers as the stationary phase for the immobilization of low-molecular-weight polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon compounds (naphthol and naphthalene) from 2% methanol/water solutions. The effects of several experimental parameters on the frontal profile, the(More)
