Statistical models for experimental model membranes.
(Águas de Lindóia, 2014-01-29)
Biological membranes are constituted from lipid bilayers and proteins. Investigation of protein-membrane interaction, essential for biological function of cells, must rest upon solid knowledge of lipid bilayer behavior. ...
Lipid-packing perturbation of model membranes by pH-responsive antimicrobial peptides
The indiscriminate use of conventional antibiotics is leading to an increase in the number of resistant bacterial strains, motivating the search for new compounds to overcome this challenging problem. Antimicrobial peptides, ...
Two dimensional modeling of a membrane reactor for ATR of methane
(Elsevier Science, 2012-10)
A theoretical study of a multitubular membrane reactor for the autothermal reforming of methane over a Ni/Al<sub>2</sub>O<sub>3</sub> catalyst is presented. A 2-D model is selected to account for the strong composition ...
The antimicrobial peptide microcin J25 stabilizes the gel phase of bacterial model membranes
(Elsevier Science, 2015-05)
The bacterial membrane interaction of the antimicrobial peptide microcin J25 was studied with the probe-free techniques Langmuir monolayers and infrared spectroscopy. Membrane model systems composed by phosphatidylethano ...
Removal of glyphosate herbicide from water using biopolymer membranes
(Elsevier B.V., 2015-03-15)
Enormous amounts of pesticides are manufactured and used worldwide, some of which reach soils and aquatic systems. Glyphosate is a non-selective herbicide that is effective against all types of weeds and has been used for ...
Study of fouling mechanism in pineapple juice clarification by ultrafiltration
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2003)
On a Rational Performance Evaluation for the Development of Inorganic Membrane Technology in Gas Separation and Membrane Reactors
(Berkeley Electronic Press, 2016-02)
Inorganic membranes can be made of different materials. However, there have been only few reports on membrane evaluation to convert lab-scale membranes into a prototype for industrial applications. In order to fill this ...
