Solid media were employed to determine the presence and absence of extracellular enzyme production by two genera of fruit-rot fungi, Rhizopus and Mucor. The results of this investigation revealed that phosphatase was released into the cultural medium by all the fungi examined; however, only R. oryzae, R. tritici, M. mucedo, and M. piriformis showed the(More)
Beta-sialons are ceramic phases occurring in the SiO(2)-Si(3)N(4)-AlN-Al(2)O(3) system. A series of samples with differing compositions has been investigated by magic-angle spinning nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and powder X-ray diffraction (XRD). Although the constituent nitrogen nuclei occupy positions of low symmetry in the beta-sialon(More)
A fluorescent metabolite present in seven members of the genus Rhizopus was isolated. This compound appeared green before spray treatment and purple after spray treatment with p-anisaldehyde in visible light. Subsequent purification and structural elucidation of the isolated compound yielded 1-[2,6,10,14-tetramethyl-17-carbomethyl(More)
Two nitrogen ceramic phases, the oxynitride LiSiON and the nitride LiSi2N3, have been studied by 6Li and 7Li NMR. Magic angle spinning (MAS) NMR experiments have been carried out at two magnetic field strengths (7.05 and 14.1 T). The spectra give evidence of the relative effects of the quadrupolar and chemical shift interactions. The electric field gradient(More)
