The interaction between pepsin and CTAB has been elaborately studied with a number of techniques. The enzyme-induced interaction produced complexes, aggregates, and micelles of CTAB with distinct physicochemical features. It was found that at very low surfactant concentration (much below the critical micellar concentration (cmc) of pure CTAB), the(More)
Interaction of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) with a globular protein, trypsin, has been physicochemically studied in aqueous medium in detail using tensiometric, conductometric, calorimetric, fluorimetric, viscometric, and circular dichroism techniques. The results indicate that SDS-trypsin aggregates start to form at a surfactant concentration higher than(More)
The conformational behavior of a globular protein, trypsin has been studied in presence of an anionic surfactant, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) in aqueous medium by different techniques, such as, viscometry, circular dichroism, fluorimetry, Fourier transform infra-red, UV-vis absorption, dynamic light scattering and nuclear magnetic resonance. The results(More)
Curcumin (C(21)H(20)O(6)) is a natural antioxidant which has a wide range of physiological and pharmacological actions. Here, first time this is employed for the determination of the critical micellar concentration (cmc) of both ionic and nonionic surfactants using the measurements of UV absorption, fluorescence spectroscopy and fluorescence polarization(More)
In this paper, results of physicochemical studies on the interaction of bovine serum albumin (BSA) with alkyltrimethylammonium bromide (ATAB), pentaethylene glycol mono-n-dodecyl ether (C12E5), and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) under the experimental conditions of phosphate buffer at pH 7 in the presence of 10 mM sodium bromide (NaBr), maintaining the ionic(More)
A new Schiff base compound 2-((benzylimino)-methyl)-naphthalen-1-ol (2BIMN1O) has been synthesized and characterized by (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, DEPT, FT-IR and mass spectroscopic techniques. The significantly low fluorescence yield of the compound has been rationalized in connection with photo-induced electron transfer (PET) from the imine receptor moiety to(More)
A correct description of electronically excited states is critical to the interpretation of visible-ultraviolet spectra, photochemical reactions, and excited-state charge-transfer processes in chemical systems. We have recently proposed a theory called multiconfiguration pair-density functional theory (MC-PDFT), which is based on a combination of(More)
