Biosolids and composted municipal solid wastes were surface-applied (0 and 80 Mg ha(-1)) to a degraded soil in a semi-arid environment to determine their effects on the quantity and quality of run-off water. Three and 4 years after application, a simulated rainfall was performed (intensity=942.5 ml min(-1) and kinetic energy=3.92 J m(-2)) on 0.078 m(2)(More)
Experiments were carried out to evaluate the use of some agroindustrial wastes as supports in solid state cultures for the biodegradation of crude oil Maya in static column reactors over 15-20 days periods. Spent compost and cane bagasse wastes showed superior qualities over peat moss waste as support candidates with the advantage that they contain(More)
We assessed the biodegradation of a typical oily sludge waste (PB401) in Mexico using several regimes of indigenous microbial consortium and relevant bioremediation strategies in slurry-phase system. Abiotic loss of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) in the PB401 was insignificant, and degradation rates under the various treatment conditions ranged between(More)
A molecularly imprinted polymer was developed and used for solid-phase extraction (MISPE) of the antihelmintic fenbendazole in beef liver samples. Detection of the analyte was accomplished using square wave voltammetry (SWV) at a cylindrical carbon fibre microelectrode (CFME). A mixture of MeOH/HAc (9:1) was employed both as eluent in the MISPE system and(More)
This paper analyzes the effect of bending in the formability of metal sheets. Depending on the severity of the gradient, two kinds of failure are expected: a Necking-controlled Failure, which produces a neck in the entire sheet thickness, and a Fracture-controlled Failure, in which a ductile fracture initiates at the outer surface of the sheet. Both types(More)
The hydrolytic degradation of bioabsorbable Poliglactin 910 was studied in a phosphate buffer solution, pH = 7.4, at 37 degrees C. The degradation was evaluated by analyzing the changes in weight loss, pH, DSC, mechanical properties and morphological changes. After 10 weeks, the weight loss and pH changes suggested diffusion of low molecular weight chain(More)
Droplet sizes of oil/water (O/W) nanoemulsions prepared by the phase inversion temperature (PIT) method, in the water/C16E6/mineral oil system, have been compared with those given by a theoretical droplet model, which predicts a minimum droplet size. The results show that, when the phase inversion was started from either a single-phase microemulsion (D) or(More)
