Cofactor engineering of intracellular CoA/acetyl-CoA and its subsequent effect on isoamyl acetate production in Escherichia coli
Traditional metabolic engineering focused on pathway manipulation strategies like amplification addition or deletion of pathway to manipulate fluxes. However, cofactors play an essential role in cellular metabolism and ...
Effect of oils, soap and hardness on the stability of foams
A systematic study of foam stability in the presence of model nonpolar oils and their mixtures with oleic acid was conducted for two commonly used surfactants (anionic and nonionic) under neutral and alkaline conditions ...
Dynamic aspects of emulsion stability
This dissertation encompasses novel theoretical, experimental and computational advances in the understanding of the transient behavior of emulsions undergoing phase separation. Firstly, the kinetics of dissolution of ...
Theory and computational studies of magnetic carbon nanotubes and of depletion effects in colloid-polymer systems
Part I. ab initio Molecular Dynamics of Interaction of Fe Atoms with Single-Wall Carbon Nanotubes. The interaction of Fe atoms with a single-wall carbon nanotube is investigated using the ab initio molecular dynamics ...
Development of nanostructured membranes for environmental applications
Two new methods for the fabrication of porous membranes were studied. Ceramic membranes were obtained from alumoxane and ferroxane nanoparticles casted onto porous support materials. The synthesis of ferroxane nanoparticles ...
