Application of immobilized horseradish peroxidase (HRP) in porous calcium alginate (ca-alginate) for the purpose of phenol removal is reported. The optimal conditions for immobilization of HRP in ca-alginate were identified. Gelation (encapsulation) was optimized at 1.0% (w/v) sodium alginate in the presence of 5.5% (w/v) of calcium chloride. Upon(More)
The covalent coupling of an invertase from baker's yeast onto an agricultural by-product, corn grits, has been developed. The optimal conditions for each step of the chemical modification of the support have been determined: oxidation with sodium metaperiodate, amination with ethylenediamine, reduction with sodium cyanoborohydride, and activation with(More)
Autologous grafts, as the gold standard for vascular bypass procedures, associated with several problems that limit their usability, so tissue engineered vessels have been the subject of an increasing number of works. Nevertheless, gathering all of the desired characteristics of vascular scaffolds in the same construct has been a big challenge for(More)
BACKGROUND In the recent study, optimum operational conditions of cathode compartment of microbial fuel cell were determined by using Response Surface Methodology (RSM) with a central composite design to maximize power density and COD removal. METHODS The interactive effects of parameters such as, pH, buffer concentration and ionic strength on power(More)
BACKGROUND A novel implementation of a hybrid membrane bioreactor (HMBR) has been studied in this paper. It is utilized as combination of rotating biological contractor (RBC) and an external membrane, as a new biological system for oily wastewater treatment. METHODS Chemical oxygen demand (COD) and total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) as factors of(More)
A simple bio-conjugation procedure to surround a single horseradish peroxidase (HRP) enzyme molecule with dendritic polyester macromolecules (polyester-32-hydroxyl-1-carboxyl bis-MPA dendron, generation 5) was proposed. The characterization of resultant nanoparticles entitled HRP dendrozyme, was performed by transmission electron microscopy, dynamic light(More)
The present research is focused on the ultrasound assisted adsorption of Acid blue 92 (AB92) and Direct red 80 (DR80) as anionic dyes in single and binary systems onto zeolitic imidazolate framework (ZIF-8) functionalized with 3-Aminopropyltrimethoxysilane (APTES). Different techniques such as Fourier transform infrared (FTIR), scanning electron microscope(More)
In this research, the partition coefficients of biomolecules such as amino acids, enzymes and proteins in polymer-salt aqueous two-phase systems were modeled by artificial neural network systems. The input variables of the proposed neural network are weight fractions of polymer, salt and biomolecule in feed, temperature, pH of solution, difference between(More)
In this work, the individual and interaction effects of three key operating parameters of the photocatalytic disinfection process were evaluated and optimized using response surface methodology (RSM) for the first time. The chosen operating parameters were: reaction temperature, initial pH of the reaction mixture and TiO2 P-25 photocatalyst loading.(More)
