Improvement of enzymatic xylooligosaccharides production by the co-utilization of xylans from different origins
Kiran, Esra Uckun; AKPINAR, ÖZLEM; Bakir, Ufuk (Elsevier BV, 2013-10-01)
This study aimed to improve XOs production by enzymatic hydrolysis of xylans from various lignocellulosic waste biomasses namely corn cob, cotton and sunflower stalks, rice hull, wheat straw by using two commercial xylanase preparations, Shearzyme 500L and Veron 191. Shearzyme 500L showed better xylan hydrolysis capacity with high amount of xylose liberation. Xylobiose was the main hydrolysis product in each case. Even though the enzymatic hydrolyses using Shearzyme 500L resulted higher reducing sugar produ...
Improvement of bioactivity with dual bioceramic incorporation to nanofibrous PCL scaffolds
Altunordu, Gercem; Tezcaner, Ayşen; Evis, Zafer; Keskin, Dilek (2023-03-01)
Bone tissue injuries, diseases or related clinical interventions require bone tissue engineering (BTE) approaches for regeneration of large bone defects, especially for compromised situations. Most BTE applications in literature focused on composites of polymers with a single type of bioceramic. However, native bone matrix has various inorganic components. Accordingly, this study aimed to investigate the use of dual bioceramics in BTE scaffolds prepared by wet-electrospinning of Poly-caprolactone (PCL) and ...
Improvement of mechanical and flame retardancy properties of biocomposites based on low density polyethylene and polylactic acid
Altun, Yasemin; Bayramlı, Erdal; Doğan, Mehmet Onur; Department of Polymer Science and Technology (2015)
The main objective of this study was to improve the mechanical and flame retardant properties of low density polyethylene (LDPE) and poly (lactic acid) (PLA) based biocomposites. Wood flour (WF) and jute fabric were used as the fillers. In the mechanical property improvement studies with LDPE, the effect of two compatibilizing agents MA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and maleic acid) and GMA (random terpolymer of ethylene, acrylic ester and glycidyl metacrylate) functionalized polymers at dif...

Improvement of water sensitivity, mechanical properties and utilization of hemicellulose based polymeric materials
Akkuş, Merve; Bölükbaşı, Ufuk; Özkan, Necati; Department of Chemical Engineering (2015)
Hemicelluloses are sustainable resources of biopolymers with a huge potential to be converted into materials substituting petroleum-based products, but their hydrophilic characteristics pose a challenge to their industrial adoption. The main aim of this study is to decrease the water sensitivity of alkaline extracted xylan-based corn cob hemicelluloses (xylans) by heat-treatment and acetylation also by addressing their extrusion processing with sorbitol, glycerol and blends. Heat-treatment resulted in extru...
