Conference Paper
The nucleation of glycine was investigated in supersaturated aqueous solutions exposed to well-controlled fluid shear under isothermal conditions. Shear rates between 25 s(-1) and 1000 s(-1) were studied using Couette and capillary flow devices. Induction times were obtained from imaging, transmission and scattering measurements, or visual monitori...
Lipase (Candida antarctica lipase B) was immobilised on silica that was produced via a mild route using a recently developed biologically inspired silica formation method. This route of immobilisation was favourable compared to traditional methods due to its simplicity, mild conditions, low cost, one-step procedure and short preparation time. Lipas...
We present the first report on bioinspired silica - produced using a green method - supported carbonic anhydrase for carbon capture and demonstrate significantly improved carbon capture efficiency and stability relevant to flue gas temperatures.
Enzyme applications are increasing in popularity due to their efficiency, and the green processing they offer. Enzymes do, however, have several inherent problems which restrict their use, such as their solubility and instability in organic media or under harsh conditions. Enzyme stabilisation and immobilisation aims to attenuate such problems. Imm...
