Lipomyces starkeyi and Rhodosporidium toruloides are able to accumulate high lipid fractions, so called microbial oil, in their cells. Microbial oils are of high potential as dietary supplements and future energy sources. In this study, use of HHP in cell disruption of Lipomyces starkeyi DSM 70295 was investigated. The HHP process variables (pressure, time, and temp) were optimized for maximal oil yield using response surface method (RSM). The pressurized L. starkeyi yeasts were imaged by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Apple pomace was tested as sole raw material in different conditioned forms, in which only Rhodosporidium toruloides DSM 4444 was grown. The best form of apple pomace hydrolysate medium was scaled-up to 1 L and 10 L fermentor. The extracted oil samples were analyzed for fatty acid composition. A maximal lipid yield of 45.8±2.1% was obtained at 200 MPa and moderate temperature of 40 oC, within 15 min, while the lowest yield of 15.2±0.9% was observed at 300 MPa, 40 oC, and 10 min. Scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analysis revealed that lower pressure (200 MPa) caused cell distortions, whereas higher pressure (400 MPa) resulted in surface scars and swellings. It was observed that detoxified apple pomace media gave a maximum lipid yield of 47.5±2.47% at flask scale experiments. In 1 L and 10 L fermentors, the lipid yields were measured as 40.1±5.51% and 50.9%, respectively, for detoxified apple pomace medium. The apple pomace conversion was calculated as 0.08 (g oil/ g dry apple pomace) for the detoxified medium. High palmitic (C16:0) and palmitoleic acid (C16:1) contents imply that L. starkeyi-origined oils are favorable to substitute palm oil or cocoa butter. R. toruloides-origined oils were rich in oleic (C18:1) and linoleic acids (C18:2). The results proved that HHP can be effective for microbial oil extraction. Also, apple pomace was demonstrated as suitable source for lipid production.

Synthesis and electro-optical properties of a new copolymer based on EDOT and carbazole
Akbayrak, Merve; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar (Informa UK Limited, 2016-01-01)
A new copolymer of 3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (EDOT) and 5-(2-ethylhexyl)-1,3-bis(9-methyl-9H-carbazol-3-yl)-5H-thieno[3,4-c]pyrrole-4,6-dione (CzPDICz) was electrochemically synthesized using different monomer feed ratios. The resulting copolymer films were investigated in terms of their electrochemical and electro-optical behaviors. Properties of the obtained copolymer films through different monomer feed ratios were compared to each other and to individual poly(ethylenedioxythiophene; PEDOT) and homopoly...
Synthesis and characterization of hyperbranched and air drying fatty acid based resins
Bat, Erhan; Kisakurek, D; Akhmedov, IM (Elsevier BV, 2006-04-01)
In this research four hyperbranched resins having fatty acid residues were synthesized. Dipentaerythritol, which was used as the core molecule of the resins, was twice esterified with dimethylol propionic acid. This resin was then esterified with the castor oil fatty acids. The hydroxyl group present in the ricinoleic acid which constitutes almost 87% of the castor oil fatty acids was then reacted with linseed oil fatty acids and benzoic acid. The linseed fatty acids were incorporated into the structure to ...
Preparation and Characterization of Amino-Functionalized Zeolite/SiO2 Materials for Trypsin-Chymotrypsin Co-immobilization
Dogan, Demet; Sezer, Selda; Ulu, Ahmet; KÖYTEPE, SÜLEYMAN; ATEŞ, BURHAN (2021-08-01)
Inorganic supports have attracted increased attention in enzyme immobilization since they not only improve enzyme stability but also reduce the final cost of enzymatic reactions. Herein, we explored the suitability of the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials to co-immobilize trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture. For this purpose, the trypsin-chymotrypsin mixture was co-immobilized on the amino-functionalized zeolite/SiO2 materials and the immobilization yield was 80.7 +/- 7.6%. The pre-support and its modifi...
Production of neutral and alkaline extracellular proteases by the thermophilic fungus, Scytalidium thermophilum, grown on microcrystalline cellulose
Ifrij, IH; Ögel, Zümrüt Begüm (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2002-07-01)
Extracellular proteases produced by Scytalidium thermophilum, grown on microcrystalline cellulose, were most active at pH 6.5-8 and 37-45 degreesC when incubated for 60 min. Highest protease activity was at day 3 where endoglucanase activity was low. Protease activity measurements with and without the protease inhibitors, p-chloromercuribenzoate, PMSF, antipain, E-64, EDTA and pepstatin A, suggest production of thiol-containing serine protease and serine proteases. Endoglucanase and Avicel-adsorbable endogl...
Production of boron nitride by carbothermic and mechanochemical methods, and nanotube formation
Camurlu, HE; Aydogdu, A; Topkaya, Yavuz Ali; Sevinc, N (2003-09-12)
The formation of hexagonal boron nitride by carbothermic reduction of boron oxide and nitridation has been examined. Experiments were conducted in the temperature range of 1100-1500degreesC for durations between 15-240 minutes. Products were examined by X-ray, SEM and chemical analysis. The results showed that the reaction proceeds through a gaseous boron containing species, which is most probably 13203(g). It was found that all of the carbon was consumed and formation of boron nitride was complete in 2 hou...
