Many microorganisms fail to degrade pollutants when introduced in different natural environments. This is a problem in selecting inocula for bioremediation of polluted sites. Thus, a study was conducted to determine the success of four inoculants to degradep-nitrophenol (PNP) in lake and industrial wastewater and the effects of organic compounds on the(More)

Two indigenous and one non-indigenous bacterial strains were evaluated for their ability to degrade p-nitrophenol (PNP) in pure culture. When these bacterial strains were inoculated into industrial wastewater to enhance the degradation of PNP in the presence or absence of glucose, all three strains degraded 20 mg/l of PNP with or without added glucose.

The introduction of robotic medical assistance in biopsy and stomach cavity exploration is one of the most important milestones in the field of medical science. The research is still in its infancy and many issues like limitations in dexterity, control, and abdominal cavity vision are the main concerns of many researchers around the globe. This paper(More)
Understanding the transport mechanism of buried explosives in soil is crucial in order to implement an effective system for their detection. A major recurring problem is the representation of diffusion processes of these compounds on soils due their different and complex properties. The aim of this work was to describe the transport of 2, 4, 6(More)
— A hyper-redundant manipulator has the advantage that it can be used in constraint space; however the control of hyper-redundant manipulator is difficult. This paper presents a concept of virtual link based two degrees of freedom (DOF) controller. With the proposed controller, manipulator of any number of links can be reduced to either a 2-link virtual(More)
The particles in nearly monodisperse sols of polystyrene in water need small amounts of adsorbed emulsifier to combat aggregation tendencies. These sols are used in the calibration of many different types of instrument including instruments capable of measuring angular light scattering functions. Using an IBM 360-40 computer with extended precision on all(More)
