Effects of nitrogen depletion on the biosorption capacities of Neochloris minuta and Neochloris alveolaris for five heavy metals Applied Water Science (2021)
Neochloris minuta and Neochloris alveolaris grown in nitrogen-rich (+ N) and nitrogen-depleted (-N) media were tested for their heavy metal maximum biosorption capacities (qmax) and adsorption percent efficiencies (R%). By removing nitrogen from the growth ...
Starch, Lipid, and Protein Accumulation in Nutrient-Stressed Microalgal Cells Studied Using Fourier Transform Infrared Microscopy Frontiers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (2018)
Microalgae are fast growing organisms that can be used as feedstock for the production of biofuels. The metabolism of microalgae can be manipulated by exposing them to different environmental conditions for favoring the accumulation of ...
Photochemistry of Free and Bound Zn-Chlorophyll Analogues to Synthetic Peptides Depend on the Quinone and pH Journal of Photochemistry and Photobiology B: Biology (2015)
A synthetic peptide was used as a scaffold to bind Zn-Chlorophyll (ZnChl) analogues through histidine ligation to study their photochemistry in the presence of different type of quinones. The Chl analogues were chlorin e6 (Ce6), ...
Biofuels: The Benefits and Disadvantages as an Energy Source CAHSS Intellectual Conversations (2014)
This lecture will present the good and evil of biofuels as energy sources. The U.S. ethanol and biodiesel production levels are expected to meet 17% of demand for transport fuel by 2021. Currently, the major ...
A P450 Metabolism Experiment for Undergraduate Biochemistry Laboratories Journal of Chemical Education (2014)
A laboratory experiment is described to provide students hands-on experience in learning some aspects of microsomal P450-catalyzed metabolism. Undergraduate students in the biochemistry laboratories detect and quantify the metabolites produced from butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) by ...
Incorporation of Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry into the Undergraduate Organic Chemistry Laboratory Curriculum Journal of Chemical Education (2013)
Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS) is a powerful analytical tool for detection, identification, and quantification of many volatile organic compounds. However, many colleges and universities have not fully incorporated this technique into undergraduate teaching laboratories despite ...
