Topics from this paper

Genetic, biochemical and physiological studies of acetyl-CoA metabolism via acyl-condensation
PHA content anal yses and western blot experiments showed that over-expressing each gene of op r n phaC1AB alone significantly increased PHA production and over- expressing phaB resulted in the increasing of the PHA content the most. Expand
Efficient synthesis of glutaric acid from l-glutamic acid via diazoniation/hydrogenation sequence
The practical synthetic preparation of glutaric acid has remained a major challenge to date. In the present study, glutaric acid was synthesised by way of one-pot diazoniation/hydrogenation of theExpand
Melt Processing of Bioplastic Composites via Twin Screw Extrusion and Injection Molding
Polymer composites composed of polyhydroxybutyrates and natural fibers were extruded to investigate the effect of varying screw speed and lubricant loadings. Optical microscopy results show thatExpand
Is Boron a Prebiotic Element? A Mini-review of the Essentiality of Boron for the Appearance of Life on Earth

The complexation of boric acid and borates with organic cis-diols remains the most probable chemical mechanism for the role of this element in the evolution of the living world. Expand
Sustainable synthesis and applications of polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) from biomass
Abstract Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) belong to group of biopolymers that have in recent times received growing research interest as a result of being eco-friendly and close characteristics withExpand
Controlling the Isothermal Crystallization of Isodimorphic PBS-ran-PCL Random Copolymers by Varying Composition and Supercooling
The isothermal crystallization behavior of isodimorphic random poly(butylene succinate)-ran-poly(ε-caprolactone) copolyesters, PBS-ran-PCL, previously synthesized by us is studied for the first time. Expand
Optimal iron concentrations for growth-associated polyhydroxyalkanoate biosynthesis in the marine photosynthetic purple bacterium Rhodovulum sulfidophilum
Rhodovulum sulfidophilum, a marine photosynthetic purple nonsulfur bacterium with a high metabolic versatility, was evaluated for cell growth and PHA production and it was successfully confirmed that an optimum concentration of iron, an essential nutrient, promotes cell growth in R. sulfidphilum and also enhances PHA utilization. Expand
Photodynamically Active Electrospun Fibers for Antibiotic-Free Infection Control
This study explores the feasibility of integrating a bioresorbable electrospun polymer scaffold with localized antimicrobial photodynamic therapy (aPDT) capability and encapsulated a photosensitizer in polyester fibers in the PS inert state to enable aPDT. Expand
Synthesis and Properties of Bionanocomposites of Polyhydroxybutyrate-Polylactic Acid Doped with Copper and Silver Nanoparticles
Global pollution has caused a real interest on the use of biodegradable materials to the sustainable development. PLA and PHB are interesting materials due to their properties and theirExpand
The potential of oxalic – and glycolic acid based polyesters (review). Towards CO2 as a feedstock (Carbon Capture and Utilization – CCU)
Abstract Plastic materials are indispensable in everyday life because of their versatility, high durability, lightness and cost-effectiveness. As a consequence, worldwide plastic consumption willExpand
