Commercial multi-walled carbon nanotubes (CNT) were functionalized by oxidation with HNO3, to introduce oxygen-containing surface groups, and by thermal treatments at different temperatures for their selective removal. The obtained samples were characterized by adsorption of N2 at -196°C, temperature-programmed desorption and determination of pH at the(More)
Biomagnetic immobilization of histidine-rich proteins based on the single-step affinity adsorption of transition metal ions continues to be a suitable practice as a cost effective and a up scaled alternative to the to multiple-step chromatographic separations. In our previous work, we synthesised Porous Magnetic silica (PMS) spheres by one-step(More)
The complete elimination of enzymes from the reaction mixture and the possibility of its recycling for several rounds result in great benefits, allowing the reduction of the enzyme consumption and their usability in continuous processes. In this work, it is evaluated the capture of a H6-tagged green fluorescence protein (GFP-H6) on porous magnetic spheres(More)
Magnetic nanoclusters are widely used as carriers for biomedical and bioindustrial applications. The chemical resistance of the nanoclusters is a key factor for the recycling the magnetic beads for a repetitive use in the industrial bioprocesses. In this work, a study of the chemical resistance of Fe2O3 silica-coated nanoclusters at different pH is(More)
Biodegradable poly(L-lactide acid) (PLLA) nanofiber membranes were prepared by electrospinning of PLLA and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO). The selective removal of PEO by water allows to obtain smaller fiber diameters and to increase the porosity of the membranes in comparison to PLLA membranes obtained under the same electrospinning conditions. After removal(More)
