Invertase was immobilized into polyacrylamide-gelatin carrier system by chemical cross-linking with chromium (III) acetate, chromium (III) sulphate, and potassium chromium (III) sulphate. The optimum conditions, namely substrate concentration, temperature, and pH were determined. The effect of polyacrylamide-gelatin ratio and cross-linker concentration oil immobilized enzyme activity were analysed. Maximum immobilized enzyme activities were obtained with chromium (III) acetate (0.01 mol dm(-3)), chromium (III) sulphate (0.004 mol dm(-3)) and potassium chromium (III) sulphate (0.001 mol dm(-3)) for 0.177 (w/w) polyacrylamide-gelatin carrier ratio as 79%, 72% and 79%, respectively. The K-m values were 86 and 166 mM for free and immobilized enzyme, respectively. All immobilized samples were used 20 times over a period of 2 months without a considerable loss of activity.

FTIR spectroscopic characterization of irradiated hazelnut (Corylus avellana L.)
Dogan, Ayca; Siyakus, Galip; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2007-01-01)
Radiation induced molecular changes in macromolecular components of hazelnut tissues were investigated by mid-Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy. Irradiation dose of 1.5 kGy (low) and 10 kGy (high) were applied. The changes in frequency, signal intensity and intensity ratio of IR bands revealed that the unsaturated lipid concentration increased for low dose treated samples whereas it decreased and peroxidation appeared at high dose treatment. The low dose irradiation treatment, slightly increase...
Effect of processing on buckwheat phenolics and antioxidant activity
Şensoy, İlkay; Ho, Chi-Tang; Karwe, Mukund V. (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-01)
The effect of processing on functional compounds in buckwheat was investigated. Extractions of buckwheat flour were carried out before and after roasting or extrusion. Folin-Ciocalteu assays indicated that processing did not cause any change in total phenolic content in buckwheat flour. Roasted (200 degrees C, 10 min) dark buckwheat flour exhibited an increase in non-polar compounds as well as polar compounds whereas extrusion exhibited increase only in polar compounds. Antioxidant activity test (DPPH) show...

The effects of selenium supplementation on apex and right ventricle myocardia of the rat heart were investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy by examining the changes in the frequency values of major absorptions arising from lipids and proteins. Cluster analysis was used to discriminate the selenium treated group from the control by utilizing two distinct spectral regions, belonging to absorptions arising from lipids and proteins, respectively. In addition, protein secondary structur...
Differentiation of Anatolian honey samples from different botanical origins by ATR-FTIR spectroscopy using multivariate analysis
Gok, Seher; Severcan, Mete; Goormaghtigh, Erik; KANDEMİR, İRFAN; Severcan, Feride (Elsevier BV, 2015-03-01)
Botanical origin of the nectar predominantly affects the chemical composition of honey. Analytical techniques used for reliable honey authentication are mostly time consuming and expensive. Additionally, they cannot provide 100% efficiency in accurate authentication. Therefore, alternatives for the determination of floral origin of honey need to be developed. This study aims to discriminate characteristic Anatolian honey samples from different botanical origins based on the differences in their molecular co...
Use of multi-walled carbon nanotubes in matrix solid phase dispersion extraction combined with gas chromatography
Njie, Njaw; Aygün, Rüveyde Sezer; Department of Chemistry (2008)
The use of Multi-Walled Carbon Nanotubes (MWCNT) as solid sorbent in Matrix Solid-Phase Dispersion (MSPD) extraction and preconcentration method was presented to determine some commonly used organophosphorus insecticides/OPIs in honey samples using a Gas Chromatography Flame Ionization Detector (GC-FID). OPIs are poisonous compounds used to kill insects and rodents by affecting their nervous system. The limit of detections obtained after MSPD extraction were 7.0 ng/g for Malathion, Malaoxon and Fenitrothion...
