Effect of polar functional groups on the phase behavior of amino acids, small peptides, solvents, and polymers
Dipolar interactions significantly influence the phase behavior of many systems of interest to the biochemical, chemical, petroleum and polymer industries. For example, the solution behavior of amino acids, small peptides, ...
Metabolic engineering of cofactors (NADH/NAD+) in Escherichia coli
Metabolic engineering studies have generally focused on manipulating enzyme levels. However, cofactors play a major role in the production of fermentation products. This thesis provides the first systematic study of cofactor ...
NMR relaxation and diffusion characterization of hydrocarbon gases and liquids
The proton nuclear spin-lattice relaxation times and self-diffusion coefficients of ethane and propane were measured at elevated temperatures and pressures. It is found that pure ethane and propane depart from the linear ...
