A new and simple method has been proposed to prepare magnetic Fe(3)O(4)-chitosan (CS) nanoparticles by cross-linking with sodium tripolyphosphate (TPP), precipitation with NaOH and oxidation with O(2) in hydrochloric acid aqueous phase containing CS and Fe(OH)(2), and these magnetic CS nanoparticles were used to immobilize lipase. The effects on the(More)
The influences of pore diameter and cross-linking method on the immobilization efficiency of Candida rugosa lipase (CRL) in a mesoporous material have been investigated. Five kinds of SBA-15 with different pore-sizes (6.8nm, 9.1nm, 13.2nm, 15.6nm and 22.4nm) were chosen as the carrier. The one with pore diameter of 15.6nm was proved to be a more suitable(More)
Mesostructured cellular foams (MCFs) are suitable for biomolecular immobilization because of their relatively large-pore diameter and pore volume. Penicillin G acylase (PGA) was immobilized on aminopropyl-functionalized MCFs through Schiff base reaction. It is shown that PGA could be fixed more firmly through the covalent immobilization on(More)
The adsorption characteristics of BSA onto the magnetic chitosan nanoparticles have been investigated in this paper. The magnetic chitosan nanoparticles were prepared by adding the basic precipitant of NaOH solution into a W/O microemulsion system. The morphology of magnetic chitosan nanoparticles was observed by transmission electron microscope (TEM). It(More)
When chitosan nanoparticles were prepared in a water-in-oil (W/O) microemulsion by using 2% (wt) acetic acid (HAc) and 30% (wt) tri-n-octylamine (TOA) as solvent and precipitant, respectively, particle diameters of 7 nm were observed and the particles formed ovoid shaped aggregates. Using 0.05% HCl and 5.0M NaOH as solvent and precipitant produced(More)
In this study, macro-mesoporous silica spheres were prepared with a micro-device and used as the support for the immobilization of penicillin G acylase (PGA). To measure the enzymatic activity, the silica spheres with immobilized PGA were placed into a packed-bed reactor, in which the hydrolysis of penicillin G was carried out. The influences of the(More)
Well controlled two-liquid-phase flows in a T-junction microchannel device have been realized. The system of H2SO4 and BaCl2, respectively, in two phases to form BaSO4 nanoparticles was used as a probe to characterize the microscale two-phase flow and transport conditions of a system with interphase mass transfer and chemical reaction. Nanoparticles with(More)
Micrometer-sized silica spheres with bimodal macromesoporous structures are synthesized continuously by a modified gelation technology, and a novel coaxial microfluidic device is applied to control the size of the silica spheres. These spheres are used as a new protein adsorbent to realize fast adsorption and separation of protein mixture. BSA and lysozyme(More)
Varied interfacial tension caused by the unsaturated adsorption of surfactants on dripping droplet surfaces is experimentally studied. The mass transfer and adsorption of surfactants, as well as the generation of fresh interfaces, are considered the main factors dominating the surfactant adsorption ratio on droplet surfaces. The diffusion and convective(More)
In this work, we describe a novel, simple microfluidic method for fabricating titania-silica core-shell microspheres. Uniform droplets of silica sol were dispersed into an oil phase containing tetrabutyl titanate via a coaxial microfluidic device. The titanium alkoxide hydrolyzed at the water-oil interface after the formation of the aqueous droplets. A gel(More)
