Polarity-Based Sequential Extraction as a Simple Tool to Reveal the Structural Complexity of Humic Acids
A sequential chemical extraction with a defined series of eluotropic organic solvents with an increasing polarity (trichloromethane < ethyl acetate < acetone < acetonitrile < n-propanol < methanol) was performed on peat-bog ...
Drug Release Kinetics of Electrospun PHB Meshes
Microbial poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) has several advantages including its biocompatibility and ability to degrade in vivo and in vitro without toxic substances. This paper investigates the feasibility of electrospun PHB ...
The utilization of biochar as a conditioner for soil enrichment
The contribution describe cultivation process of Zea mays. The effect of soil and biochar on plant growth is discussed.
Active biodegradable packaging films modified with grape seeds lignin
(The Royal Society of Chemistry, 2020-08-07)
Biodegradable packaging materials represent one possible solution for how to reduce the negative environmental impact of plastics. The main idea of this work was to investigate the possibility of utilizing grape seed lignin ...
Enzymatic Hydrolysis of Poly(3-hydroxybutyrate-co-Hydroxyvalerate) Scaffolds
Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) are hydrolyzable bio-polyesters. The possibility of utilizing lignocellulosic waste by-products and grape pomace as carbon sources for PHA biosynthesis was investigated. PHAs were biosynthesized ...
How the Supramolecular Nature of Lignohumate Affects Its Diffusion in Agarose Hydrogel
Lignohumate, as an industrially produced analog of natural humic substances, is studied from the point of view of its diffusion properties. This work focuses on its permeation ability, important in agricultural and ...
Biochar Texture – A Parameter Influencing Physicochemical Properties, Morphology, and Agronomical Potential
Biochar represents a stable form of carbon-rich organic material produced by the pyrolysis of various biomass residues. It has the potential to stabilize organic carbon in the soil and improve soil fertility, water retention, ...
The Effect of Biochar Application on Soil Properties and Growth of the Model Plant Zea Mays
(European Ecocycles Society, 2021-12-20)
The classic way of land cultivation means the use of inorganic fertilizers that are salts that dissolve rapidly in a short time and improve soil fertility. This process negatively affects soil salinity and the life of ...
