This work developed a new and efficient method of extracting and separating Co(II), Ni(II) and Cd(II) in aqueous two-phase systems (ATPS) composed of triblock copolymer (L64)+Na(2)C(4)H(4)O(6)+water and L64+Li(2)SO(4)+water using the hydrophobic extractant 1-nitroso-2-naphtol, which complexes the metal ions and partitions in the triblock copolymer micelles(More)
The adsorption affinity of lactoferrin from whey in monolithic supermacroporous cryogel was analyzed using equilibrium data adsorptive isothermal titration microcalorimetry to measure thermodynamic information governing the process. Isotherm data was obtained at temperatures of 20, 30 and 40°C, pH 6, 7 and 8, and ionic strength of 200, 600 and 1000mmolL(-1)(More)
Partition of the natural dye carmine has been studied in aqueous two-phase systems prepared by mixing aqueous solutions of polymer or copolymer with aqueous salt solutions (Na(2)SO(4) and Li(2)SO(4)). The carmine dye partition coefficient was investigated as a function of system pH, polymer molar mass, hydrophobicity, system tie-line length and nature of(More)
The nature of the interactions between 1,3-dialkylimidazolium cations and noncoordinating anions such as tetrafluoroborate, hexafluorophosphate, and tetraphenylborate has been studied in the solid state by X-ray diffraction analysis and in solution by (1)H NMR spectroscopy, conductivity, and microcalorimetry. In the solid state, these compounds show an(More)
The effect of different ionic cosolutes (NaCl, Na(2)SO(4), Li(2)SO(4), NaSCN, Na(2)[Fe(CN)(5)NO], and Na(3)[Co(NO)(6)]) on the interaction between sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) was examined by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) and isothermal titration calorimetric techniques. The critical aggregation concentration values(More)
The interaction between Allura Red and bovine serum albumin (BSA) was studied in vitro at pH 7.4. The fluorescence quenching was classified as static quenching due to the formation of AR-BSA complex, with binding constant (K) ranging from 3.26±0.09 to 8.08±0.0610(4)L.mol(-1), at the warfarin binding site of BSA. This complex formation was driven by(More)
Cinnamic acid (CA) and methyl cinnamate (MC) have attracted interest of researchers because of their broad therapeutic functions. Here, we investigated the interaction of CA and MC with bovine serum albumin (BSA) at pH 3.5, 5.0, and 7.4 using fluorescence spectroscopy, differential scanning nanocalorimetry, and measurements of interfacial tension, size, and(More)
We investigated the extraction behavior of Cu(II) in the aqueous two-phase system (ATPS) formed by (L35+MgSO(4)+H(2)O) or (L35+(NH(4))(2)SO(4)+H(2)O) in the presence of the extracting agent 1-(2-pyridylazo)-2-naphthol (PAN). At pH=3 and a PAN concentration of 0.285 mmol kg(-1), both ATPS lead to the effective separation of Cu(II) from other metallic ions(More)
We have investigated the extraction behavior of the metallic ions Co(II), Fe(III) and Ni(II) as a function of the amount of potassium thiocyanate used as an extracting agent, using the following aqueous two-phase systems (ATPS): PEO + (NH(4))(2)SO(4) + H(2)O, PEO + Li(2)SO(4) + H(2)O, L35 + (NH(4))(2)SO(4) + H(2)O and L35 + (Li)(2)SO(4)+H(2)O. Metal(More)
This study evaluates the influence of type of salt and temperature on the partition coefficient of caseinomacropetide (CMP) to determine the best conditions for the recovery of CMP in aqueous two-phase systems (ATPS) composed by poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) 1500 and an inorganic salt (potassium phosphate, sodium citrate, lithium sulfate or sodium sulfate).(More)
