The biodegradation of waters polluted by some bisphenols, endowed with endocrine activity, has been studied by means of laccase or tyrosinase immobilized on polyacrylonitrile (PAN) beads. Bisphenol A (BPA), Bisphenol B (BPB), Bisphenol F (BPF) and Tetrachlorobisphenol A (TCBPA) have been used. The laccase-PAN beads system has been characterized as a(More)
A new immobilized system: β-galactosidase-modified polypropylene membrane was created. It was obtained 13 different carriers by chemical modification of polypropylene membranes by two stages. The first stage is treatment with K(2)Cr(2)O(7) to receive carboxylic groups on membrane surface. The second stage is treatment with different modified agents(More)
The β-galactosidase was covalently immobilized onto a modified polypropylene membrane, using glutaraldehyde. The optimal conditions for hydrolysis of lactose (4.7%) by immobilized β-galactosidase in a batch process were determined 13.6 U enzyme activity, 40°C, pH 6.8 and 10h. The obtained degree of hydrolysis was compared with results received by a free(More)
