The decontamination of synthetic Pb(II), Zn(II), Cd(II), Ni(II) solutions was investigated, using silica gels chemically modified with poly(ethyleneimine) (PEI) as sorbents. Two families of sorbents, i.e. silica/PEI and crosslinked silica/PEI, were prepared and characterized. Then the removal of metal ions from synthetic aqueous solutions was studied by(More)
Three halophilic mycelium-forming actinobacteria, strains H195T, H150 and H151, were isolated from a Saharan soil sample collected from Béni-isguen in the Mzab region (Ghardaïa, South of Algeria) and subjected to a polyphasic taxonomic characterisation. These strains were observed to show an aerial mycelium differentiated into coccoid spore chains and(More)
The response of two marine actinomycetes such as Streptomyces sp. MADO2 and Nocardiopsis sp. MADO3 to osmotic stress in minimal medium M63 and in glycerol-asparagine medium (ISP5) was studied. The two strains were moderately halophilic and the behavior of the strain Streptomyces sp. MADO2 and Nocardiopsis sp. MADO3 towards the salt stress was varied depends(More)
Surface tension properties of an enzymatically synthesized equimolar mixture of trehalose mono- and didecanoate in aqueous solutions have been determined. At 20 degrees C a critical micellar concentration (CMC) of 50 micromol/l and a minimal surface tension of 28 mN/m have been obtained. Above the CMC, it has been shown that up to a concentration of 42 wt%,(More)
