A recent study was done comparing the total percentage of fat determined by using the automated acid hydrolysis method vs. the traditional manual method (Mojonnier Method). We have created a power point presentation, several pdf´s and a conclusion of the study for you to see the latest data. Goshen, NY (PRWEB) June 10, 2013 The study consisted of over one thousand data points from a multitude of different samples and matrices. Samples ranged from 6 different types of chips, 46...

Modeling the action of cellulases on cellulose to improve efficiency of sugar production Scientists are working hard to develop the tools and find the organisms to break down the complex structure of plant cellulose into its component sugars "“ the key step toward fermentation of those sugars into usable biofuel. This process needs to be simple and economically efficient before cellulosic biofuels can compete with fossil fuels for transportation energy use. As with any exploration of...

Discovery Has Potential to Make Renewable Fuel Production More Efficient and Economical A team of researchers led by University of California, Riverside (UCR) Professor of Chemical Engineering Wilfred Chen has constructed for the first time a synthetic cellulosome in yeast, which is much more ethanol-tolerant than the bacteria in which these structures are normally found. The yeast cellulosome could enable efficient one-step "consolidated bioprocessing" by maximizing the catalytic efficiency...

For almost thirty years, scientists have known that complex carbon compounds called tholins exist on comets and in the atmospheres of the outer planets. Theoretically, tholins might interact with water in a process called hydrolysis to produce complex molecules similar to those found on the early Earth. On the Earth, complex organic molecules are believed to have been an early step in the emergence of life; such compounds are called prebiotic. Titan, the sixth and largest moon...

Humans have either buried or burned their dead since the beginning of civilization, but now a new option is gaining interest in mortuary science circles"”dissolving bodies in lye and flushing the residue down the drain.Alkaline hydrolysis is a process that uses lye, 300-degree heat and 60 pounds of pressure per square inch to destroy bodies in big stainless-steel cylinders that are similar to pressure cookers. It was developed in the U.S. 16 years ago to dispose of animal carcasses.As...

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c84902) has announced the addition of The Biochemistry of Drug Metabolism: Principles, Redox Reactions, Hydrolyses to their offering. The first of the two volumes is divided into three parts. Part One begins by introducing xenobiotics in the broad context of physiological metabolism, and continues with an overview of the processes of drug disposition and metabolism. It then goes on to summarize the macroscopic and...

By Renard, E Langlois, V; Guerin, P Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) form an enlarged family of biopolyesters, which are biocompatible, biodegradable and non- toxic. Polyhydroxyalkanoates biodegradation corresponds to a hydrolysis involving endo- or exo-enzymatic systems in the breaking cleavage of esters bonds. This type of degradation is needed for environmental applications. In the case of therapeutic and biomedical uses, a simple hydrolysis is required. Hydrolytic degradation of PHAs is not...
