In the present study, the effect of four amino acids is studied for inhibition or promotion of hydrate formation in methane (95%)-propane (5%) mixture-water system. Thus this study reports the impact of leucine, serine, histidine and phenylalanine on mixture hydrate formation with the use of impellers such as: rushton turbine (RT) which has radial flow, pitched blade turbine upward trending (PBTU) and pitched blade turbine downward trending (PBTD) which have mixed flow. Experiments were performed in concentration of 1 wt% at 24.5 bars pressure and 2 degrees C temperature. Based on experimental outcomes all four amino acids namely leucine, serine, histidine and phenylalanine performed as promoters. Furthermore, RT experiments formed gas hydrates more quickly compared to PBTU and PBTD experiments. Mixed flow single impeller (SI) experiments have higher values of hydrate formation compared to radial flow single impeller experiments.

This study examines the impact of three amino acids such as proline, methionine and tryptophan on methane (95%)-propane (5%) hydrate formation with the use of different impellers. The concentration of amino acids was 1 wt% at 24.5 bar and 2 degrees C. Based on experimental outcomes proline behaves as inhibitor and methionine and tryptophan perform as promoters. RT experiments both formed more quickly gas hydrates and indicated higher values in rate of hydrate formation compared to PBTU and PBTD experiments ...
Can sludge dewatering reactivate microorganisms in mesophilically digested anaerobic sludge? Case of belt filter versus centrifuge
Erkan, Muge; Sanin, Faika Dilek (2013-01-01)
The anaerobic digestion process that successfully reduces the organic content of sludge is one of the most common alternatives to meet pathogen reduction requirements for particular classes of biosolids. However, recently it was reported that, much higher densities of indicator bacteria were measured in dewatered cake samples compared to samples collected after anaerobic digestion. Additionally, this increase was commonly observed after centrifugation but not after belt filter dewatering. Several hypotheses...
Influence of oxygen transfer on benzaldehyde lyase production by recombinant Escherichia coli BL21(DE3) pLySs
Angardi, Vahideh; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2007)
In this study, the effects of oxygen transfer conditions on the synthesis of the enzyme benzaldehyde lyase as intracellular in recombinant E. coli BL21 (DE3) pLysS was investigated sistematically and a comprehensive model was developed to determine benzaldehyde lyase activity. For this purpose, the research program was carried out in mainly two parts. In the first part of study, the effects of oxygen transfer together with the mass transfer coefficient (KLa), enhancement factor E (=KLa/KLao), volumetric oxy...
Effects of pH and feeding strategy on metabolite profiling of beta-lactamase producing bacillus licheniformis
İler, Nazar; Çalık, Pınar; Department of Chemical Engineering (2005)
In this study, the effects of pH and different feeding modes on beta-lactamase production and cell metabolism were investigated with Bacillus licheniformis (ATCC 25972). For this purpose, first, the effects of pH on beta-lactamase activity, cell formation, substrate consumption, as well as intracellular sodium, potassium, ammonium ion, amino acid and organic acid concentrations were investigated in V= 3.0 dm3 batch bioreactors consisting of temperature, pH, foam, stirring rate and dissolved oxygen controls....
The effect of aromatic diboronic acid on characteristics of polybenzoxazine based on phenol and 4-aminomethylbenzoate
İPEK, HALİL; Hacaloğlu, Jale (2018-11-23)
In this study, a polybenzoxazine, (PPab) based on phenol and 4-aminomethyl benzoate and its composites containing various amounts of 1,4-benzene diboronic acid, (BDBA) were synthesized by stepwise curing. It has been determined that both thermal stability and char yield were increased as the amount of BDBA incorporated was increased. The improvements in thermal characteristics were associated with condensation reactions of B-OH of BDBA and not only with hydroxyl groups of polybenzoxazine but also ester grou...
