A kinetic study of the hydrolysis of inulin was performed by using as catalyst a commercial inulinase from Aspergillus ficuum. The reaction was studied carrying out initial rate as well as time course measurements. Both inulinase and invertase activities of the enzyme were taken into account, and the corresponding kinetic parameters were determined in the(More)
An activated sludge conditioned to a low concentration of phenol was used for the biodegradation of phenol in the presence of Chlorophenols, measuring the inhibiting action of all the latter compounds and expressing it as p/(50.) As a structural property to be correlated with the measured values, the lipophilicity (log P) of the Chlorophenols was(More)
A kinetic study of the enzymatic hydrolysis of two celluloses with different structural features was performed at various temperatures (26-50 degrees C). The enzymatic system consisted of three types of enzymes: E(1)-beta-1,4-glucan glucanohydrolase; E(2)-beta-1,4-glucan cellobiohydrolase; and E(3)-beta-glucosidase. A mathematical model for the mechanism of(More)
In this work, we present the first part of the power supply system for the CUORE and LUCIFER arrays of bolometric detectors. For CUORE, it consists of AC/DC commercial power supplies (0-60 V output) followed by custom DC/DC modules (48 V input, ±5 V to ±13.5 V outputs). Each module has 3 floating and independently configurable output voltages. In LUCIFER,(More)
Observations of exotic structures in the J/ψp channel, which we refer to as charmonium-pentaquark states, in Λ_{b}^{0}→J/ψK^{-}p decays are presented. The data sample corresponds to an integrated luminosity of 3 fb^{-1} acquired with the LHCb detector from 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions. An amplitude analysis of the three-body final state reproduces the two-body(More)
The first full amplitude analysis of B^{+}→J/ψϕK^{+} with J/ψ→μ^{+}μ^{-}, ϕ→K^{+}K^{-} decays is performed with a data sample of 3  fb^{-1} of pp collision data collected at sqrt[s]=7 and 8 TeV with the LHCb detector. The data cannot be described by a model that contains only excited kaon states decaying into ϕK^{+}, and four J/ψϕ structures are observed,(More)
The data sample of Λ_{b}^{0}→J/ψpK^{-} decays acquired with the LHCb detector from 7 and 8 TeV pp collisions, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3  fb^{-1}, is inspected for the presence of J/ψp or J/ψK^{-} contributions with minimal assumptions about K^{-}p contributions. It is demonstrated at more than nine standard deviations that(More)
A highly significant structure is observed in the Λ_{c}^{+}K^{-}π^{+}π^{+} mass spectrum, where the Λ_{c}^{+} baryon is reconstructed in the decay mode pK^{-}π^{+}. The structure is consistent with originating from a weakly decaying particle, identified as the doubly charmed baryon Ξ_{cc}^{++}. The difference between the masses of the Ξ_{cc}^{++} and(More)

Violations of CPT symmetry and Lorentz invariance are searched for by studying interference effects in B^{0} mixing and in B_{s}^{0} mixing. Samples of B^{0}→J/ψK_{S}^{0} and B_{s}^{0}→J/ψK^{+}K^{-} decays are recorded by the LHCb detector in proton-proton collisions at center-of-mass energies of 7 and 8 TeV, corresponding to an integrated luminosity of 3 (More)
