Analysis and modelling of the effects of micellar solubilization on the degradation rates of n-alkanes
The transport, uptake and degradation of hydrocarbons by microorganisms has been a subject of interest for many years. The inherent low solubility of most hydrocarbons has been thought to be one of the limiting factors in ...
Transient permeate flux analysis, cost estimation, and design optimization in crossflow membrane filtration
A generalized model is formulated to predict the time-dependent permeate flux by extending previous models to include the particle transport mechanisms of Brownian diffusion, shear-induced diffusion, inertial lift and ...
In vivo phosphorus-31 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study cellular metabolism
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has emerged as a valuable tool for engineers for noninvasive, real-time studies of cellular metabolism. Two applications of NMR for studying cellular metabolism were investigated in ...
