Kinetic analysis of arginine, glycine and valine on methane (95%)–propane (5%) hydrate formation

Longinos, Sotirios Nik.
Parlaktuna, Mahmut
The motivation for this study was the potential of arginine, glycine and valine to be examined as promoter or inhibitor on methane (95%)–propane (5%) hydrate formation and the examination of which flow is better for hydrate formation. The experimental outcomes indicated that glycine can be used as inhibitor while valine and arginine can be used as promoters. Rushton turbine experiments had higher values in rates of hydrate formation compared to pitched blade turbines with percentage difference of 4.3% and 4.93% between RT vs PBTU and RT vs PBTD, showing that radial flow creates better conditions for hydrate formation.

Kinetic study of the effect of amino acids on methane (95%)—propane (5%) hydrate formation
Longinos, Sotirios Nik.; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2021-01-01)
© 2021, Akadémiai Kiadó, Budapest, Hungary.The motivation for this study is the potential of environmental friendly amino acids such as alanine, histidine, phenylalanine and valine to be examined as inhibitors on methane (95%)—propane (5%) hydrate formation together with the hydrodynamic examination of three different flows in hydrate formation process. The outcomes indicated that valine and alanine behave as promoters while histidine and phenylalanine behave as inhibitors. From hydrodynamic perception radi...
Kinetic analysis of dual impellers on methane hydrate formation
Longinos, Sotirios Nik; Parlaktuna, Mahmut (2021-02-01)
This study investigates the effects of types of impellers and baffles onmethane hydrate formation. Induction time, water conversion to hydrates (hydrate yield), hydrate formation rate and hydrate productivity are components that were estimated. The initial hydrate formation rate is generally higher with the use of Ruston turbine (RT) with higher values 28.93x10(-8)mol/s inRT/RT with full baffle (FB) experiment, but the decline rate of hydrate formation was also high compared to up-pumping pitched blade turb...
Hydrate Formation Conditions of Methane Hydrogen Sulfide Mixtures
Bulbul, S.; Parlaktuna, Mahmut; Mehmetoglu, T.; Karabakal, U. (2014-01-01)
The objective of the study is to determine hydrate formation conditions of methane-hydrogen sulfide mixtures. An experimental work is carried out with different H2S concentrations and both brine and distilled water. The Black Sea conditions, which are suitable for methane-hydrogen sulfide hydrate formation, are examined. Effects of H2S concentration and salinity on the hydrate formation conditions are also obtained during the study. It is concluded that an increase in the salinity shifts the methane-hydroge...
Kinetic analyses of the effects of temperature and light intensity on growth, hydrogenm production and organic acid utilization by rhodobacter capsulatus
Sevinç, Pelin; Gündüz, Ufuk; Department of Biotechnology (2010)
Effects of temperature and light intensity on photofermentative hydrogen production by Rhodobacter capsulatus DSM1710 by use of acetic and lactic acids as substrates were studied. Experiments were conducted at 20, 30 and 38oC incubator temperatures under light intensities in the 1500 – 7000 lux range. pH of the medium and quantity of hydrogen forming together with quantity of biomass, and concentrations of acetic, lactic, formic, butyric and propionic acids in the medium were determined periodically. Growth...
Fatty acid methyl ester analysis of bacterşal isolates from salt lake, Turkey and characterization of their extracellular enzymes
Bahçeci, Hümeyra; Gültekin, Güzin Candan; Department of Biotechnology (2004)
In this study, 11 bacterial isolates from Salt Lake,Turkey were identified by using fatty acid methyl ester (FAME) analysis. They were screened for production of industrially important enzymes xylanase, cellulase, a-amylase and protease. These enzymes were characterized in terms of enzyme activity, stability, optimum temperature and optimum pH. One of the isolates was identified as Bacillus pumilus, and two of them were identified as Bacillus subtilis. Other isolates were determined to be Bacillus lichenifo...
