The interaction of hexamminecobalt(III), Co(NH(3))(6)(3+), with 160 and 3000-8000 bp length calf thymus DNA has been investigated by circular dichroism, acoustic and densimetric techniques. The acoustic titration curves of 160 bp DNA revealed three stages of interaction: (i) Co(NH(3))(6)(3+) binding up to the molar ratio [Co(NH(3))(6)(3+)]/[P] = 0.25, prior(More)
al’s properties and acoustical characteristics have been studied for a long time and ultrasonic techniques have been used in non-destructive testing and imaging for decades. Ultrasound as an analytical tool has revolutionised diagnostics in medicine, but the application of ultrasound to material’s analyses has been held back by problems with ultrasonic(More)
In the present paper we describe the application of the thickness shear mode resonator technique for the measurement of viscoelastic parameters of milk and acidified milk gels in the megahertz frequency range. The technique provides information on the viscoelasticity of milk and milk gels in the time scale of 10(-8) to 10(-7) s. The length scale of the(More)
High-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy was applied to analyse a pseudo-ternary phase diagram for a mixture consisting of water/ethyl oleate/Tween 80 and Span 20 at 25 degrees C. The measured changes in the ultrasonic velocity and attenuation with concentration of water in oil/surfactants mixtures showed several, well defined stages and transitions between(More)
In the present work, high-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy was applied to analyze a pseudoternary phase diagram for mixtures consisting of water/isopropyl myristate/Epikuron 200 and a cosurfactant (n-propanol). Changes in the ultrasonic velocity and attenuation in the megahertz frequency range were measured in the course of titration of the(More)
Weak particle gels have attracted increasing attention in the last decade. These gels have a very short region of deformation over which their viscoelastic parameters are constant. They can be broken easily in response to external forces. Therefore the rheological measurements in these systems must be performed at very small deformations, which may(More)
In the present work, we used high resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy for the analysis of heat coagulation process in milks. Two skim milks recombined from powder samples differing by their preheating treatments as well as dairy ingredients (phosphocasein, whey protein isolate, and a milk model) were monitored while submitted to a temperature of 120 degrees(More)
Dynamics of micro-structural changes in milk during the renneting process were analysed using high-resolution ultrasonic spectroscopy in combination with dynamic rheology and NIR transmission measurements. Two independent ultrasonic parameters, velocity and attenuation were measured in the frequency range 2 to 15 MHz, as a function of time after addition of(More)
Different DNA sequences have different physical properties, which seem to be important for their biological function. In particular, (dA)n.(dT)n has many unusual features, which include resistance to conformational changes in a variable chemical environment, an unusual thermodynamics of interaction with ligands, and the inability to reassociate into(More)
Apparent molar adiabatic compressibilities and apparent molar volumes of poly[d(A-T)].poly[d(A-T)], poly(dA).poly(dT), DNA and poly(A).poly(U) in aqueous solutions were determined at 1 degree C. The change of concentration increment of the ultrasonic velocity upon replacing counter ion Cs+ by the Mg2+ ion was also determined for these polymers. The(More)
