The utilization of methanol by Candida lipolytica was studied with respect to the biomass, protein, lipid and other metabolites contents. Supplementation of the methanol medium with certain redox agents such as 2,6-dichlorophenol indophenol, reduced glutathione and methyl red, showed a stimulation of both growth and protein production of C. lipolytica. At(More)
Date waste dietary fibers were examined as a hypolipidemic agent. White albino rats were fed on three experimental diets: I) high carbohydrate diet free of fiber; II) and III) diets consisted of diet I substituted with 100 g/kg of date waste dietary fibers cultured with Endomycopsis fibuligera at zero time and after 60 h of culturing respectively for 8(More)
Metal doped barium strontium titanate (BST; Ba0.5Sr0.5TixM1-xO3) nanopowders have been successfully synthesized through the oxalate precursor route based on low cost starting materials. The effect of metal ion substitution, namely Fe(3+), Mn(2+), Co(2+) and Y(3+), on the crystal structure, microstructure and optical, electrical, dielectric and magnetic(More)
In the present study, various grades of sodium alginates were extracted from different brown macro-algae and their characteristics were investigated using FTIR, UV-vis and EA. The alginates were used in combination with different proportions of calcareous soil to develop new composite microparticles as potential sorbents for efficient uptake of Fe(III),(More)
The effect of surface-active agents (surfactants), as additives, on the crystallization of gypsum was studied under conditions of the simulated dihydrate process of phosphoric acid production. Calcium hydrogen phosphate and sulfuric acid were mixed with dilute phosphoric acid at 80 degrees C, and the turbidity of the reaction mixture was measured at(More)
Generally, strontium-doped lanthanum manganites (LSM) are materials connected ordinarily as cathodes in the solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). In this study, the structural, optical, electrical and magnetic properties of La1-xSrxMnO3 (x = 0.2, 0.5, 0.8) synthesized using an organic acid precursor strategy were investigated, based on using citric acid as a fuel.(More)
The technical feasibility of using agricultural wastes (mango and date industry wastes) as a substrate for the cultivation of Pleurotus ostreatus NRRL-0366 is evaluated. When comparing the biological efficiency of mushroom production, the highest yield of fruiting bodies was obtained using a mixture of date waste and rice straw at a ratio (1:1) (11.96%),(More)

Cu0.5Zn0.5Fe2O4 nanocrystallite powders (average size 13 nm) were synthesized from Cu-Zn spent catalyst (fertilizers) industries and ferrous sulfate wastes formed during iron and steel making. Cu-Zn catalyst (22.4% Cu and 26.4% Zn) was chemically treated with sulfuric acid at temperature 80 degrees C for 1 hr for the complete dissolving of copper and zinc(More)
The fabrication of hydroxyapatite-Co-ferrite nanocomposite coatings was performed on stainless steel by chronoamperometry technique. HA-CoFe2O4 nanocomposite films were characterized using X-ray diffraction, scanning electron microscopy, and vibrating sample magnetometer (VSM). The results reveal that CoFe2O4 nanoparticles dispersed within the HA matrix(More)
