Abstract Stability of therapeutic proteins is one of the most important obstacles in their development. We studied the effects of the zwitterionic amphiphile cocamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) on protein stability against elevated temperatures and shear. Bovine serum albumin (BSA) was selected as a model protein to study the interaction with CAPB. Techniques such as gel electrophoresis, fluorimetry, and surface tensiometry were utilized to study protein aggregation and protein/CAPB complex formation....

Abstract It is taken for granted that paper filters (inert cellulose filters) do not affect water. However, our experiments show that after such filters repeatedly touched water, the liquid is modified. For example, the liquid’s electric conductivity, density, structure and composition are modified. The modifications neither are ascribable to impurities present in the filter nor to organic- or biological pollutants. Our data show that the filters instigate association of water molecules and prod...

Abstract In this work, a novel structure has been proposed in order to design a highly sensitive phononic-crystals-based sensor for sensing different water-ethanol mixtures. The proposed structure consists of the steel background and water-filled holes as inclusions. Having a resonant mode inside the band gap is very important for wave propagation inside the structure and performance analysis of the sensor. The defect mode has been created by utilizing a linear radii-decreased hollow cylinder. A...

Abstract Using protic ionic liquids (PILs) to treat ammonia (NH3)-containing exhausted gases is a potential method to mitigate the air pollution and realize the ammonia recovery in industries. In order to design a new process to absorb and recover NH3, the understanding of variations in physical properties of PILs during NH3 absorption is important for process design. In this work, the density and viscosity variations of PIL of 1-butylimidazolium bis(trifluoromethylsulfonyl)imide ([Bim][NTf2]) w...

Abstract The present study is devoted to the investigation of reorientation properties of 8CB liquid crystal samples doped with gold nanorods with distinct aspect ratios. By using an optical experimental setup to probe the electro-optic response of twist cells under an AC electric field, we measure the characteristic switch times and Freedericksz threshold of doped nematic liquid crystals. The effects associated with the surface plasmon resonance and disorder induced by the metallic guest partic...

Abstract Deep eutectic mixtures composed of hydrogen-bond donors (HBDs) and hydrogen-bond acceptors (HBAs), the so-called DESs, have recently being proposed as possible “green” alternatives to mineral oils and ionic liquids (ILs) in the lubrication of steel surfaces. DESs have similar physical properties to ILs but have the advantage of being cheaper and easier to prepare. In this work, new DESs containing sulfur units in their composition were prepared and tested in the lubrication of silicon s...

Abstract It is well known that a relatively large Kerr effect in the isotropic phase of nematic liquid crystals (NLCs) is related to the existence of short-range ordering (SRO). Thus, the conversion of the long-range ordering (LRO) behavior in the nematic phase to the SRO in the isotropic phase of NLCs can characterize the nonlinear electro-optic Kerr effect. To show conversion from LRO to SRO, we employ an empirical solvent polarity scale (ETN). Interestingly, ETN originates from the solvatochr...

Abstract The paper discusses how to interpret the parameters of the basic equation used for the extrapolation of the apparent molar volume of the solute to infinite dilution. The common misunderstandings and oversimplifications have been pointed out. We present the alternative ways of the data interpretation that can be used to eliminate these obvious but frequent mistakes.

Abstract In the present study, poly (aniline-co-pyrrole) nano-sphere (PACPNS) was synthesized by micro-emulsion polymerization technique. The PACPNS was examined as a strong absorbent for lead(II) removal from aqueous media. The FTIR spectroscopy, TGA and XRD characterization were used for confirmation of construction, phase identification and thermal stability of PACPNS, respectively. FESEM images of the PACPNS showed a nanosphere structure with diameter ∼90 nm. The experimental data revealed t...
