Superoxide dismutase based biosensor for the electrochemical determination of epinephrine
New amperometric biosensor for epinephrine was developed, using a screen printed carbon electrode with tetrathiafulvalene (5% v/w) incorporated into carbon ink (SPCTTFE). Electrodic surface was modified with nanoparticles ...
Modified Laccase-Gold Nanoparticles-Tetrathiafulvalene-SPCEs Based Biosensor to Determine W(VI) in Water
It was developed an amperometric biosensor to determine tungsten in water, based on the inhibition of laccase enzyme, by tungsten ions using pyrocathecol as a substrate. The enzyme was immobilized with a proper mixture ...
Influence of nanosilica and diatomite on the physicochemical and mechanical properties of binder at unaged and oxidized conditions
Modification of binders helps address common distresses in pavements by changing their essential properties. In order to further characterize the role of additives in these changes, a set of nanosilica and diatomite modified ...
Bile salts and derivatives: Rigid unconventional amphiphiles as dispersants, carriers and superstructure building blocks
Steroidal surfactants like bile salts have a rigid amphiphilic structure significantly different from the typical head–tail one. As a result, these molecules show peculiar features in their self-assembly behavior and ...
Influence of bitumen and aggregate polarity on interfacial adhesion
The quality of the bitumen–aggregate interface formed in an asphalt mixture is dictated by the physicochemical properties of both materials, such as surface polarity. In order to better understand the role of polarity on ...
Caracterización estructural de vesículas modificadas con quitosano
Structural Characterization of Chitosan Modified Vesicles
Caracterização estrutural de vesículas modificadas com quitosana
Vesículas a base de L-α-fosfatidilcolina (PC) y mezclas de PC/fosfogliceroles fueron caracterizadas por medio de dispersión de luz dinámica (DLS), microscopía electrónica de barrido-criogénico (Cryo-SEM) y calorimetría de ...
Biosensor for Aluminum(III) Based on α-Chymotrypsin Inhibition using a Disposable Screen-Printed Carbon Electrode and Acetyl-Tyrosine Ethyl Ester as Substrate
We report on a new amperometric assay for Al(III) ions based on the inhibition of α-chymotrypsin enzyme. The immobilization of the enzyme was performed on screen-printed carbon electrodes modified with gold nanoparticles ...
Synthesis and characterization of new mixed-valent Mn(II)/Mn(III) and mixed metal Ni/Mn complexes
Microwave assisted synthesis and bench-top reactions are compared for Mn and Mn/Ni reaction systems with substituted salicylic acid (2-hydroxy-6-isopropyl-3-methylbenzoic-acid (SALOH2). When Mn salts are used, the microwave ...
Design of an optimized biomixture for the degradation of carbofuran based on pesticide removal and toxicity reduction of the matrix
Pesticide biopurification systems contain a biologically active matrix (biomixture) responsible for the accelerated elimination of pesticides in wastewaters derived from pest control in crop fields. Biomixtures have been ...
Fisico-química de las aguas superficiales de la Cuenca del río Rincón, Península de Osa, Costa Rica
Hydrochemistry of the surface waters at the Rincon River Basin, Osa Peninsula, Costa Rica
The Rincon River Basin is characterized by steep and rugged topography with outcrops of recent sediments as well as igneous and sedimentary rocks. The area is mostly covered by forest (Tropical Wet Forest) and agricultural ...
