Protein structure depends on weak interactions and covalent bonds, like disulfide bridges, established according to the environmental conditions. Here, we present the validation of two spectroscopic methodologies for the measurement of free and unoxidized thiols, as an attribute of structural integrity, using 5,5'-dithionitrobenzoic acid (DTNB) and DyLight(More)
Poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) is one of the most commonly plastics used as dental-base material, due to its good biological compatibility and mechanical properties. Chitosan has wide application in chemical, biochemical and biomedical fields of research. In this work, chitosan (CTS) was functionalized with glycidyl methacrylate (GMA), to ease a further(More)
Quebracho extracts are used in tannery due to their high concentration of phenolics. The Mexican tannery industry uses around 450 kg/m(3) of which, 150 kg/m(3) remains in wastewaters and are discharged in drain pipe systems or rivers. The quebracho phenolics recovered from tannery wastewater (QPTW) was characterized by HPLC. The antimutagenic and(More)
