Hydrocolloid coated oleosomes for development of oleogels

Oleosomes are a micron sized mass of oil droplets enclosed by a specific membrane of protein-phospholipid mixtures typically found in plants and microorganisms to serve as an energy reserve for potential needs. Interest in plant-derived oleosomes in the food industry has recently grown significantly, as these unique natural emulsions are made of unrefined natural oil phase. In a similar way, there is also significant interest in converting liquid oil emulsions into soft solid oleogel structures through physical trapping with water-soluble biopolymers. Natural oleosome suspensions were stabilized with xanthan and pectin hydrocolloids and converted for the first time in this study into oleosome templated oleogel structures. 1–1.5% of hydrocolloid was sufficient to encapsulate oleosomes when electrostatic deposition was used and upon drying a soft solid structure was obtained. Oleosomes coated with xanthan gum resulted in oleogels structures with higher firmness and elastic modulus values compared pectin coated samples. These findings provided novel information in designing the gels structures composed of unrefined, natural oil in the form of oleosomes.

Hydrophobic Antifouling Electrospun Mats from Zwitterionic Amphiphilic Copolymers
Ozcan, Sefika; Kaner, Papatya; Thomas, David; Cebe, Peggy; Asatekin, Ayse (American Chemical Society (ACS), 2018-05-30)
A porous material that is both hydrophobic and fouling-resistant is needed in many applications, such as water purification by membrane distillation. In this work, we take a novel approach to fabricating such membranes. Using the zwitterionic amphiphilic copolymer poly(trifluoroethyl methacrylate-random-sulfobetaine methacrylate), we electrospin nonwoven, porous membranes that combine high hydrophobicity with resistance to protein adsorption. By changing the electrospinning parameters and the solution compo...

Zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires (NWs) grown on carbon fibers using a vapor transport and condensation approach are used as the cathode of a photoelectrochemical cell. The carbon fibers were obtained by electrospray deposition and take the form of a flexible carbon fabric. The ZnO NW on carbon fiber anode is combined with a "black dye" photoabsorber, an electrolyte, and a platinum (Pt) counterelectrode to complete the cell. The results show that ZnO NW and carbon fibers can be used for photoinduced charge separat...
Desulphurization characteristics of ladle furnace slags of a low sulphur steel
Keskinkilic, E.; Geveci, Ahmet; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali (2007-10-01)
In steelmaking, one of the most important parameters for desulphurization is the oxygen potential of the system which can be expressed either by oxygen activity of the steel or by FetO activity of the slag. Removal of sulphur from the steel is enhanced when FetO activity of the slag and thus oxygen activity of the steel decreases. In this paper, ladle furnace slags of a low S steel quality currently produced in Eregli Iron and Steel Works Company (ERDEMIR), Turkey, were studied. Activity coefficients of Fet...
Hydroxyapatite-nanosphere supported ruthenium(0) nanoparticle catalyst for hydrogen generation from ammonia-borane solution: kinetic studies for nanoparticle formation and hydrogen evolution
DURAK, HALİL; Gülcan, Mehmet; Zahmakıran, Mehmet; Özkar, Saim; KAYA, MURAT (Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), 2014-01-01)
The development of readily prepared effective heterogeneous catalysts for hydrogen generation from ammonia-borane (AB; NH3BH3) solution under mild conditions still remains a challenge in the field of "hydrogen economy". In this study, we report our finding of an in situ generated, highly active ruthenium nanocatalyst for the dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane in water at room temperature. The new catalyst system consists of ruthenium(0) nanoparticles supported on nanohydroxyapatite (RuNPs@nano-HAp), and can ...
Ionic liquid pretreatment allows utilization of high substrate loadings in enzymatic hydrolysis of biomass to produce ethanol from cotton stalks
Haykir, Nazife Isik; Bakir, Ufuk (Elsevier BV, 2013-11-01)
To enhance the enzymatic conversion of cotton stalks to glucose at high substrate loadings and subsequently to produce ethanol, biomass was subjected to ionic liquid and alkaline pretreatments. Ionic liquid, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium acetate (EMIMAc), which reduced biomass crystallinity, was effective in improving the conversion of cotton stalks to glucose (82-85%) regardless of the substrate loading used during enzymatic hydrolysis. On the other hand, the glucose yield decreased from 67% to 55% with an i...
