Industrial and agricultural off-gas streams are comprised of numerous volatile compounds, many of which have substantially different odorous properties. State-of-the-art waste-gas treatment includes the characterization of these molecules and is directed at, if possible, either the avoidance of such odorants during processing or the use of existing(More)
A new method is described to remove and separate biosurfactants from complex mixtures by compressing and harvesting the liquid surface layer. This method was applied to Bacillus subtilis cultures, in which the lipopeptide antibiotic fengycin as well as the polyketide antibiotic bacillaene were produced. The automated harvesting and collection in a(More)
Glycolipids are a group of compounds with a broad range of applications. Two types of glycolipids (alkylpolyglycosides and gangliosides) were examined with regard to their physicochemical properties. Despite their structural differences, they have in common that they are amphiphilic molecules and able to aggregate to form monolayers, bilayers, micelles,(More)
Local electron triggered reactions of functional surface adsorbates were used as a maskless, dry, and minimally invasive nanolithography concept to stabilize the polarisation of individual vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) on a wafer in a post-processing step. Using a 30 keV focused electron beam of a scanning electron microscope and(More)
Micromechanically exfoliated mono- and multilayers of molybdenum disulfide (MoS2) are investigated by spectroscopic imaging ellipsometry. In combination with knife edge illumination, MoS2 flakes can be detected and classified on arbitrary flat and also transparent substrates with a lateral resolution down to 1-2 µm. The complex dielectric functions from(More)
The features of matrices, suitable for affinity chromatography, have been extensively investigated and got subject for several reviews. But these investigations show, that there is still a lack in adsorbent characterization and a demand of comparative investigations of adsorbents, based on different materials with a range of different surface(More)
The intention of this work is to offer, within the shortest time, an appropriate sorption separation process for almost any odour problem. The development is based on the preparation and characterisation of new adsorbents, the strategy for the selection of the best adsorbent, the process engineering and the choice of a suitable regeneration procedure. In(More)
Process development for affinity separation is a crucial prerequisite for a successful biospecific isolation of biological active substances like glycoconjugates or enzymes. The functionalization of polymer and silica based adsorbents and their influence on the adsorption behaviour of the modified adsorbents are presented. Improvement of the immobilization(More)
