Sediments form mountain streams in Brenna (Beskid Slaski) were examined for keratinolytic fungi. A rare psychrophilic dermatophyte, Keratinophyton ceretanicus, occurred abundantly in the sediments. The qualitative and qualitative compositions of keratinolytic fungi depended on the water contamination with sewage and on the contents of plant organic(More)
We apply density functional theory to study adsorption of ions, treated in the framework of the restricted primitive model (RPM), on surfaces modified by tethered polyampholytes. The residual electrostatic contribution to the free energy functional is approximated by using the approach proposed by Wang et al. [J. Phys.: Condens. Matter 23, 175002 (2011)](More)
We investigate the structure and adsorption of amphiphilic molecules at planar walls modified by tethered chain molecules using density functional theory. The molecules are modeled as spheres composed of a hydrophilic and hydrophobic part. The pinned chains are treated as tangentially jointed spheres that can interact with fluid molecules via(More)
We use density functional theory to study the influence of fluid adsorption on the structure of grafted chain layer. The chains are modeled as freely jointed spheres. The chain segments and spherical molecules of the fluid interact via the Lennard-Jones potential. The fluid molecules are attracted by the substrate. We calculate the excess adsorption(More)
We have studied the microscopic structure, thermodynamics of adsorption, and phase behavior of Lennard-Jones fluid in slitlike pores with walls modified due to preadsorption of chain molecules. The chain species are grafted at the walls by terminating segments. Our theoretical considerations are based on a density functional approach in the semigrand(More)
A density functional and Monte Carlo simulation study of end-grafted polymers immersed by simple fluids is presented. The polymer molecules are modeled as freely jointed tangent hard spheres with the end segments linked to the surface. The authors analyze an influence of the chain length, the grafting density, and a nature of solvent on the brush structure.(More)
A density functional approach to the retention in a chromatography with chemically bonded phases is developed. The bonded phase is treated as brush built of grafted polymers. The chain molecules are modelled as freely jointed spheres. Segments of all components interact with the surface via the hard wall potential whereas interactions between the segments(More)
A density functional study of adsorption of oligomers on weakly attractive surfaces modified with grafted chains is presented. The chain molecules are modeled as freely jointed tangent spheres. The segments interact via Lennard-Jones (12-6) potentials. Two types of substrates are considered - a neutral surface and the Lennard-Jones (9,3) surface. The(More)
Adsorption of short linear heteropolymers in slitlike pores is studied using the density functional theory and Monte Carlo simulations. The molecules are assumed to be freely jointed tangent hard spheres. The segments have different affinity with regard to the walls. Each molecule contains one surface-binding segment that interacts with the walls via(More)
We study the co-assembly of amphiphilic Janus disks and isotropic molecules by Monte Carlo simulations. A Janus particle is composed of two parts, one being attractive, A, and the other one being repulsive, R. Fluid molecules are strongly attracted by the R-sides and repelled by the A-sides. As the fluid density increases, the structure of the system(More)
