In the present article a method is described to immobilize lipase from Candida rugosa on a hollow fiber membrane, and the use of such a system for the hydrolysis of lipids is reported. The membranes were ENKA hydrophilic Cuprophan-type hollow fibers, having a large specific surface area. The immobilized lipase exhibited a high stability: the half-life time(More)
In this work a new mathematical model, based on non-equilibrium conditions, describing the dynamic adsorption of proteins in columns packed with spherical adsorbent particles is used to study the performance of chromatographic systems. Simulations of frontal chromatography, including axial dispersion, for non-equilibrium systems with non-linear adsorption(More)
We systematically investigate by Monte Carlo simulations the role of the wall structure on a fluid of flat hexagonal molecules confined between two graphite walls. Our simulations show that the centers of mass of the molecules in different layers undergo an order-disorder transition as the wall separation increases, irrespective of the details of the wall(More)
A gelatinizing model food derived from a 5% w/w cross-linked waxy maize starch suspension was simulated in coiled heaters to assess the impact of centrifugal forces on flow and heat transfer. For four coil diameters (D = 0.25, 1, 2.5, and infinity m) and three flow rates (w = 0.5, 1, and 2 m/s), heat transfer, viscous development, and the severity of(More)
Edge functions T1 and T2, which describe the polarization-dependent edge contribution to forward scattering by spheres, are derived from the exact Mie solution. All the relative refractive indices and the 64 < x < 2048 size parameter range are considered. The edge functions significantly improve the approximation methods that can be used to calculate(More)
