Aqueous solubility (Sw), 1-octanol/water partition coefficient (Kow), and vapor pressure of the nonionic form of 2,2',6,6'-tetrabromo-4,4'-isopropylidenediphenol (tetrabromobisphenol A or TBBP-A) were measured. From this, enthalpies of solution and vaporization were estimated. Furthermore, enthalpy of fusion and melting point were measured to estimate(More)
The peptide synthesis from N-acetyl-L-tyrosine ethyl ester (Ac-Tyr-OEt) and amino acid amides was realized using α-chymotrypsin (CT) in acetonitrile (MeCN) or acetonitrile/supercritical carbon dioxide (SCCO2) containing small amounts of water. In both solvent systems there was an optimum water content for peptide synthesis, above which peptide hydrolysis(More)
light hydrocarbons at low temperatures is of interest in the design of the proper equipment to make such separations. In the previous paper4) of this series, the equilibrium relationships for two binary mixtures of carbon dioxide with ethylene and ethane at 0°C have been described. Those for the ethylene and ethsine binaries with carbon dioxide have been(More)
Starburst triblock copolymers consisting of 8-arm poly(ethylene glycol) (8-arm PEG), poly(L-lactide) (PLLA) or its enantiomer poly(D-lactide) (PDLA) and terminal PEG, 8-arm PEG-b-PLLA-b-PEG (Stri-L) and 8-arm PEG-b-PDLA-b-PEG (Stri-D), were synthesized. An aqueous solution of a 1:1 mixture (Stri-Mix) of Stri-L and Stri-D assumed a sol state at room(More)
This paper is concerned with optimization of the fermentation conditions for preparation of alkaline pectin lyase (poly-galacturonic acid trans-eliminase, PATE) by Erwinia carotovora IFO3830 (E.C.IFO3830). The orthogonal matrix method was adopted as the experimental design method for media. The effects of media composition on the growth rate of E.C.IFO3830(More)
The fermentation conditions for preparation of polygalacturonic acid transeliminase (PATE) enzyme by Erwinia carotovora IFO3830 were optimized for seed ratio, vibration rate, and temperature by the TFCCRD method. The results indicated that the optimum fermentation conditions for E. carotovora IFO 3830 were that seed ratio, vibration rate, and temperature(More)
An extension of the existing Generalised Beam Theory (GBT), intended to make it applicable to orthotropic thin-walled structural members, is presented and discussed. The derived equations are, then, used to analyse the local and global buckling behaviour of FRP pultruded columns and the GBT results are validated through a comparison with numerical ones,(More)
