  1. 1. Enzyme Immobilization in Mesoporous Silica

    Author : Hanna Gustafsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; immobilization; lipase; Mesoporous; particle morphology; feruloyl esterase; enzyme; encapsulation; silica; pore size; trypsin;

    Abstract : Catalysts are widely used in many industries for production of chemicals, pharmaceuticals, fuels and energy. There is a need for more sustainable production processes, with reduced energy and raw material consumption together with a reduction in waste and toxic by-products. READ MORE

  2. 2. Mesoporous Silica Formed with Triblock Copolymers

    Author : Katarina Flodström; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Fysikalisk kemi; 1H NMR; TEM; SAXS; in situ; mechanism of formation; cubic Ia3d; cubic Im3m; Mesoporous; synthesis; Pluronic; SBA-16; SBA-15; hexagonal p6mm; synchrotron SAXS; Physical chemistry; amphiphilic polymers; silica;

    Abstract : The formation of highly ordered mesoporous silica materials, using PEO-PPO-PEO amphiphilic triblock copolymers (so-called Pluronics) as structure directing agents, has been studied. The materials are formed through the addition of a silica source to a polymer solution of low concentration (2.5 wt ) under acidic conditions. READ MORE

  3. 3. Mesoporous supported lipid bilayers

    Author : Maria Claesson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : FRAP; Lipid bilayer; Mesoporous; AFM; Vesicle; Titania; Silica; QCM-D;

    Abstract : AbstractLipid bilayers are commonly used as simplified model systems of living cell membranes. They have shown to be important components in the development of biosensing devices where the bilayer acts as a host for transmembrane proteins, such as ion channels, that are utilized as sensing elements.

  4. 4. Enzyme immobilization in mesoporous silica

    Author : Hanna Gustafsson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; pH probe; Mesoporous silica; particle morphology; immobilization; pore size; quartz crystal microbalance with dissipation monitoring; enzyme; biocatalysis;

    Abstract : Enzymes are highly effective and versatile biological catalysts, with a high chemo-, stereo- and regioselectivity while operating under mild conditions, such as physiological temperature and pH and atmospheric pressure. Therefore, enzymes are a sustainable alternative to conventional catalysts in organic synthesis processes. READ MORE

  5. 5. Immobilization of feruloyl esterases in mesoporous silica

    Author : Christian Thörn; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Mesoporous materials; Feruloyl esterases; Protein modeling; Biocatalysis; QCM-D; Hydroxycinnamic acids; Enzyme immobilization; Silica;

    Abstract : Feruloyl esterases are a class of enzymes that can be used as biocatalysts for the modification of bioactive hydroxycinnamic acids. In industry, enzyme immobilization is often necessary to stabilize the enzymes and to allow their reuse. READ MORE
