Although cross-flow membrane filtration is a very attractive option for harvesting cells and recovering enzymes from cell homogenates, the process is not without its problems. Foremost of these is the deposit of dissolved and suspended solutes onto the membrane surface during operation. The formation of these dense and sometimes compressive sublayers (often(More)
This work reports the semiconductor-assisted photochemical degradation of reactive dyes. In an oxygenated-UV-ZnO system almost total decolorization of Remazol Brilliant Blue R, Remazol Black B, Reactive Blue 221 and Reactive Blue 222 was observed in reaction times of about 60 min. Extending the photochemical treatment up to 120 min, mineralization higher(More)
The simultaneous determination of organic dye mixtures by using spectrophotometric methods is a difficult problem in analytical chemistry, due to spectral interferences. By using multivariate calibration methods such as partial least-squares regression (PLSR), it is possible to obtain a model adjusted to the concentration values of the mixtures used in the(More)
This paper deals with turbidity currents in a circular settling tank. A mathematical model with a k-epsilon turbulence model has been developed. Using this mathematical model, the following unique properties of turbidity currents in a circular settling tank are demonstrated: turbulence induced by the turbidity currents remains after most sediment particles(More)
The simultaneous determination of lanthanide family elements is one of the greatest problems in analytical chemistry, due to the close similarity of their chemical properties. Spectrophotometric methods are generally of limited use, due to the various mutual spectral interferences involved. By using multivariate calibration methods (partial least-squares(More)
