Chitin production by Lactobacillus fermentation of shrimp biowaste in a drum reactor and its chemical conversion to chitosan
Chitin was produced by fermenting shrimp heads and shells with Lactobacillus plantarum 541 in a drum reactor with an internal volume of 3 dm3. The crude chitin yield from heads and shells was 4.5 andExpand

Fermentation of Shrimp Biowaste under Different Salt Concentrations with Amylolytic and Non-Amylolytic Lactobacillus Strains for Chitin Production
Fermentation of shrimp biowaste was conducted with two Lactobacillus plantarum strains at pH=6.0 under various salt concentrations. The non-amylolytic strain L. plantarum 541 and amylolytic strain L.Expand

Kinetic growth parameters of different amylolytic and non-amylolytic Lactobacillus strains under various salt and pH conditions.
Four Lactobacillus species were studied for their ability to grow at high NaCl concentrations and different initial pH values. Lactobacillus plantarum 541 and A6 could ferment glucose and produceExpand

Comparison of chinoli ( Brassica campestris subsp. oleifera × subsp. chinensis ) and B. napus oilseed rape using different growth regulators, plant population densities and irrigation treatments
Experiments were carried out between 1983 and 1987 in a cool but dry environment in Tasmania to evaluate the growth, development and yield of chinoli compared with the Brassica napus cultivar,Expand

Optimum parameters for production of chitin and chitosan from squilla (S. empusa)
Chitin and chitosan of high quality were produced from squilla, a by-catch of Indian Ocean fisheries, by demineralization, deproteination, and deacetylation. Optimum conditions for the production ofExpand

Effect of the apetalous flower character on radiation distribution in the crop canopy, yield and its components in oilseed rape (Brassica napus)
A Brassica napus line that produces flowers with virtually no petals (Apetalous) was compared for its physiological significance with Marnoo, a related cultivar bearing conventional yellow petals.Expand
