The aims of this study were to monitor the changes in physicochemical, including spectroscopic, and biological characteristics during composting of green tea waste–rice bran compost (GRC) and to define parameters suitable for evaluating the stability of GRC. Compost pile temperature reflected the initiation and stabilization of the composting process. The(More)
By a short-term combined prophylactic-therapeutic procedure, the following compounds were found to be active against staphylococcal infections in Swiss mice: ,y-aminobutyric acid, 'y-amino-j5-hydroxybutyric acid (GABOB), 6-amino-valeric acid (DAVA), e-aminocaproic acid (EACA), trans-4-aminomethylcyclohexanecarboxylic acid (trans-AMCHA), taurine, and cysteic(More)
A simple and small-scale method for the preparation of homogenate from yeast was developed. The principle of this new method involves the shaking of a small amount of yeast-cell suspension with glass beads on a tower-shaped mixer. When this method is used the cells in 1 ml of cell suspension are broken down and 14 samples can be simultaneously processed(More)
The composting process of different organic wastes both in laboratory and on a large-scale was characterized using CIELAB color variables to evaluate compost stability for the better application in agriculture. The time courses of the CIELAB variables of composting materials were determined directly from the bottom of a glass petri dish filled with dried(More)
