We aim to clarify the ligninolytic capabilities of dye-decolorizing peroxidases (DyPs) from bacteria and fungi, compared to fungal lignin peroxidase (LiP) and versatile peroxidase (VP). With this purpose, DyPs from Amycolatopsis [read more]

Controlling Particle Morphology and Pore Size in the Synthesis of Ordered Mesoporous Materials

Authors: Awoke, Y; Chebude, Y; Diaz, I

Molecules. vol: 25. page: .
Date: NOV. 2020.
Doi: 10.3390/molecules25214909.

Ordered mesoporous materials have attracted considerable attention due to their potential applications in catalysis, adsorption, and separation technologies, as well as biomedical applications. In the present manuscript, we aim at a rational design to obtain the desired surface functionality (Ti and/or hydrophobic groups) [read more]

Ficin: A protease extract with relevance in biotechnology and biocatalysis

A global goal, common to all of these fields, [read more]

Natural Mordenite from Spain as Pozzolana

Authors: Presa, L; Costafreda, JL; Martin, DA; Diaz, I

Molecules. vol: 25. page: .
Date: mar-01. 2020.
Doi: 10.3390/molecules25051220.

This work deals with anomalous concentrations of natural mordenite in the southeast of Spain. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studies evidenced that the samples contain mainly monomineral zeolitic phase of mordenite (70% to 74%), usually accompanied by [read more]
