Effects of dietary fructooligosaccharide on digestive enzyme activities, intestinal microflora and morphology of male broilers.
Two hundred forty male Avian Farms broiler chicks, 1 d of age, were randomly allocated to four treatments, each of which had five pens of 12 chicks per pen. The chicks were used to investigate the… Expand
Effects of copper bearing montmorillonite on the growth performance, intestinal microflora and morphology of weanling pigs
Abstract A total of 128 weaning pigs (Duroc × Landrace × Yorkshire) at an average initial body weight of 7.5 ± 0.6 kg were used to investigate the effects of copper bearing montmorillonite (Cu-MMT)… Expand
Comparative effects of nano elemental selenium and sodium selenite on selenium retention in broiler chickens
Two experiments were performed to explore the selenium retention of Nano elemental selenium (Nano-Se) in Arbor Acre male broiler chickens as compared with sodium selenite. A 2×4 factorial arrangement… Expand
Effects of tourmaline addition on the dehydrogenase activity of Rhodopseudomonas palustris
Abstract The structural change of water clusters of distilled water induced by tourmaline addition was observed and a bacterium Rhodopseudomonas palustris was used to investigate the effects of… Expand
Bivalve Shell: Not an Abundant Useless Waste but a Functional and Versatile Biomaterial
Bivalve shells, available in abundance, have no eminent use and are commonly regarded as waste. Their improper disposal causes a significant level of environmental concern and also results in a waste… Expand
Adsorption and antibacterial effect of copper-exchanged montmorillonite on Escherichia coli K88
Abstract Calcium montmorillonite (Ca-MMT), sodium montmorillonite (Na-MMT) and acid-activated montmorillonite (AAM), and their Cu 2+ -exchanged montmorillonites (Cu-MMT), Cu*Ca-MMT, Cu*Na-MMT and… Expand
Effects of acid treatment on the physico-chemical and pore characteristics of halloysite
Abstract In this study, we systematically investigated the effects of sulfuric acid treatment on the physico-chemical and pore characteristics of halloysite. XRD results indicate that sulfuric acid… Expand
A potential bio-filler: The substitution effect of furfural modified clam shell for carbonate calcium in polypropylene
Shell waste has the potential to be used as a bio-filler. In this work, the commercial calcium carbonate and furfural modified clam shell were used as fillers in polypropylene. Both fillers were… Expand
Bio-filler from waste shellfish shell: preparation, characterization, and its effect on the mechanical properties on polypropylene composites.
Waste shellfish shell stacking with a significant odor and toxicity which are hazardous to human constitutes a serious environmental hazard. For utilization of waste shellfish shell resource, granule… Expand
Mechanical and thermal properties of polypropylene (PP) composites filled with CaCO3 and shell waste derived bio-fillers
The clam shell (CS) waste was first modified by furfural and hydrochloric acid to prepare fillers FCS and ACS, which were then used as fillers in polypropylene (PP), as well as the commercial calcium… Expand
