The effect of compressed CO2 on the specific activity of chloroperoxidase (CPO) to catalyze the chlorination of 1,3-dihydroxybenzene in cetyltrimethylammonium chloride (CTAC)/H2O/octane/pentanol reverse micellar solution was studied. The results show that the specific activity of the enzyme can be enhanced significantly by compressed CO2, and the specific(More)
We propose a new method to detect re-sampled imagery. The method is based on examining the normalized energy density present within windows of varying size in the second derivative of the frequency domain, and exploiting this characteristic to derive a 19-dimensional feature vector that is used to train a SVM classifier. Experimental results are reported on(More)
Alpha-chymotrypsin (CT)/polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP) composites was synthesized by combination of reverse micelles and CO(2). In this method, the two reverse micellar solutions containing CT and PVP, respectively, were first mixed, then compressed CO(2) was used as an antisolvent to precipitate the CT and PVP simultaneously and CT/PVP composites were(More)
A new method to prepare the cross-linked enzyme aggregates (CLEAs) was developed. Through cross-linking the enzyme (Trypsin) aggregates, which was precipitated from the CO2-expanded reverse micellar solutions, dendritic CLEAs were obtained. The sizes of the CLEAs prepared by this new method were nanometer order of magnitudes and could be tuned by changing(More)
The formation of micelles of Pluronic block copolymers in poly(ethylene glycol) (PEG) was studied using fluorescence, solubilization measurements, and frozen fracture electron microscopy (FFEM) methods at 40 degrees C. It was discovered that surfactants L44 (EO(10)PO(23)EO(10)), P85 (EO(26)PO(40)EO(26)), and P105 (EO(37)PO(56)EO(37)) can form micelles in(More)
The effect of compressed CO2 on the solubilization of bovine serum albumin (BSA) in water/sodium bis-(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate (AOT)/isooctane reverse micelles was studied by observing phase behavior and recording UV-visible spectra under different conditions. The pH values within the water cores of reverse micelles at different CO2 pressures were also(More)
