    Hydrogels are polymeric three-dimensional networks able to swell in the presence of an aqueous medium. Hydrogels from natural proteins and polysaccharides are ideal scaffolds for tissue engineering since they resemble the extracellular matrices of tissue comprised of various amino acids and sugar-based macromolecules.The biocompatible and biodegradable hydrogel scaffolds are promising materials for tissue engineering. Here, we report a new class of hydrogels derived from oxidized alginate (OA) and gelatin. The prepared oxidized alginate was shown to be efficient in crosslinking gelatin, leading to hydrogel formation. The effect of degree of oxidation and concentration of OA on the mechanical...

    This practice investigates about the resistance & sustainability of a sample of available microorganisms in fruit juices vs. a natural anti microbe called vanillin. To be more precisely the anti bacterial characteristic of vanillin has been tested against famous pathogenic organism Escherichia Coli in apple juice. The practice has been experienced for different concentrations of Vanillin, controlling & reducing the microbe concentration in apple synthetic juice. The effect has been investigated by measuring sensitivity of results in two different temperatures one in 8 degree of centigrade & other in 15, in each temperature two PH have been tested (PH = 3.5 & 4.5) 0-40-80 m-molar as 3... 

    Antioxidant Production from Rice Bran and Optimization of the Process

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Arab, Fatemeh (Author) ; Alemzadeh, Iran (Supervisor) ; Maghsoudi, Vida (Supervisor)
    An antioxidant is a molecule capable of preventing the oxidation of other molecules and neutralizing free radicals. Free radicals are the root cause for many human diseases.Rice bran is one of the most important co-products in the rice milling.In this research antioxidant activity of two Iranian rice bran varieties Fajr and Tarem, extracted by three different solvents (methanol, ethanol and ethyl acetate),determined at different time of extraction by measurement of total phenolic content, free radical scavenging, inhabitation of linoleic acid peroxidation and reducing power. The methanolic extract of Fajr rice bran produced strong results in antioxidant activity. The amount of Total...

    Xanthan gum is a water-soluble exo-polysaccharide. It is produced industrially from carbon sources by fermentation using the gram-negative bacterium Xanthomonas campestris. There have been various attempts to produce xanthan gum by fermentation method using bacteria and yeast by using various cheap raw materials. In this study the cultural conditions for xanthan gum production by Xanthomonas campestris were investigated and optimized by response surface methodology, to maximize cell and xanthan production in batch experiments using YM broth without pH control. The individual and interactive effects of three independent variables (carbon source concentration (40-80 g/l), nitrogen source... 

    Optimization of Xanthan Gum Separation

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Ranjbar Golafshani, Maedeh (Author) ; Alemzadeh, Iran (Supervisor) ; Maghsoudi, Vida (Co-Advisor)
    Xanthan is a water-soluble anionic polysaccharide that is produced by anaerobic fermentation using the bacterium Xanthomonas campstris. Xanthan is used in various industries, including food industry and oil industry because of its appropriate rheological properties. For this reason, various studies have been done on the production and recovery of xanthan. In this study conditions for recovery of xanthan gum were investigated and optimized by response surface methodology. Initially xanthan production under optimal conditions that determined in previous studies i.e. YM broth at 30 ⁰C without pH control was performed. After production, the gum separation was investigated using food solvents... 

    Presentation of a Model for Prediction of Ch4/Co2/H2s Permeation Through Polymeric Membranes

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Azizi, Morteza (Author) ; Mousavi, Abbas (Supervisor) ; Maghsoudi, Vida (Co-Advisor) ; Shamkhali, Amir Naser (Co-Advisor)
    Acidic gases separation from hydrocarbon mixtures is very important in natural gas industry. In this study, the separation of CO2 and H2S from CH4 investigates by experimental and molecular dynamics simulation approaches. For achievement to this goal, it is used two polymeric families, as be divided to polyurethanes and PEBAX copolymers. It is used 4 polyurethane membranes as are named PU-1, PU-2, PU-Ether, and PU-Ester from polyurethanes group. Also, it is applied 5 PEBAX commercial membranes have be known PEBAX-2533, PEBAX-4033, PEBAX-5533, PEBAX-4011, and PEBAX-1074. It is compared between simulation and experimental works and found that there is good agreement between...
