Hemicellulose is a valuable component of agro-food industrial wastes and used in various areas such as drug manufacture and food industry for encapsulation and emulsification. In this study, effects of raw material type, particle size, and extraction conditions (alkaline concentration, temperature, time) and methods (direct alkaline extraction, alkaline extraction after component removal and acidic extraction method) on hemicellulose yields were investigated. Sugar beet pulp and corn wastes were used as raw material. The alkaline method resulted in 40.2% pure extracts, while the acidic method gave only 27.4% purity in the same extraction conditions. The optimal extraction conditions were found as 30 degrees C temperature, 10% alkali (NaOH) and 24 h time (64.3%). It was also observed that removal of constituents such as fat, protein, starch and soluble sugar increased the purity of hemicellulose from 40.2% to 58.2% at the same conditions. The results indicated that using both low alkaline concentration and low temperature allows to recover higher-quality extracts.


The Effect of dispersed phase feed rate on the production of pickering emulsions
Dönmez, Dila; Ayrancı Tansık, İnci; Department of Chemical Engineering (2018)
Emulsions are fundamental in many applications such as food, petroleum, detergent, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Pickering emulsions are defined as emulsions of any type, either oil-in water, water-in-oil or even multiple, stabilized by solid particles instead of surfactants. Solid particles may prevent the droplets from coalescing by getting adsorbed at the interface, and thus stabilizing the emulsion. Pickering emulsions have more advantages over emulsions stabilized by surfactants in terms of s...
Effect of biomass pretreatment conditions on the glucose and biodegradable film production from lignocellulosic wastes
Bahçegül, Erinç; Bölükbaşı, Ufuk; Özkan, Necati; Department of Biotechnology (2013)
Process parameters during the conversion of lignocellulosic agricultural wastes including corn cobs and cotton stalk into glucose and biodegradable polymeric materials were investigated. The investigated parameters were pretreatment type, pretreatment temperature, lignocellulosic biomass particle size prior to pretreatment, hemicellulose extraction temperature, salt type, salt concentration and polymer processing technique. Pretreatments applied to corn cobs including dilute acid, alkaline and ionic liquid ...

Dyes, which are used in different industries such as paper, plastics, leather, pharmaceutical, food, cosmetics, textiles, etc., constitute a major class of environmental pollutants. In recent studies, magnetic adsorbents combining magnetic separation technology with the adsorption process has been used to remove dyes from industrial wastewaters. The main advantages of the adsorbents are possible to be easily and simply separated from process media in a short time using the external magnetic field and will b...
Effect of nickel(II) on the biomass yield of the activated sludge
Gokcay, CF; Yetiş, Ülkü (1996-01-01)
Biomass yield of microorganisms is important in applied microbiology since it is the ultimate factor determining the amount of product produced regardless of whether product is growth-linked or not. In the case of environmental microbiology the opposite is true and minimizing the biomass produced, or the sludge in the relevant jargon, often is the prime goal. In this paper, a unique means of manipulating the microbial biomass yield of a heterogeneous culture to fulfil either of the two goals is presented. 5...
Production of recombinant proteins by yeast cells
Celik, Eda; Çalık, Pınar (Elsevier BV, 2012-09-01)
Yeasts are widely used in production of recombinant proteins of medical or industrial interest. For each individual product, the most suitable expression system has to be identified and optimized, both on the genetic and fermentative level, by taking into account the properties of the product, the organism and the expression cassette. There is a wide range of important yeast expression hosts including the species Saccharomyces cerevisiae, Pichia pastoris, Hansenula polymorpha, Kluyveromyces lactis, Schizosa...
