Silver phosphate nanoparticles were biologically synthesised, for the first time, using a dilute silver nitrate solution as the silver ion supplier, and without any source of phosphate ion. The applied bacterium was Sporosarcina pasteurii formerly known as Bacillus pasteurii which is capable of solubilising phosphate from soils. It was speculated that the microbe accumulated phosphate from the organic source during the growth period, and then released it to deionised water. According to the transmission electron microscopy images and X-ray diffraction results, the produced nanoparticles were around 20 nm in size and identi...

Anderson, Kyle M. Friez, Katherine A. Miller, Timothy R. Hoover Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium utilizes a wide range of growth substrates, some of which are relatively novel. One of these unusual substrates is d-glucosaminate, which is metabolized by the enzymes encoded in the dga operon. d-Glucosaminate is transported and converted to d-glucosaminate-6-phosphate (G6P) by a phosphotransferase system, composed of DgaABC...

In this study, the possibility of using an effective short time non-thermal plasma (NTP) treatment to inactivate Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis on eggshell surface was investigated. The eggshells were artificially contaminated with S. Enteritidis at an initial concentration of 107cfu/egg and then treated with an atmospheric pressure plasma jet by using air as process gas under different experimental settings with various frequencies (20-25kHz) and reference voltages (100-80%), exposure times (60-120s), distances from plasma jet (15 or 40mm) and gas flow rates (2000-3000L/h). The best result was obtained at maximum...

Fattah Carbon paste electrode (MCPE) modified with novel Carboxymethyl chitosan/poly(1-cyanoethanoyl-4-acryloyl thiosemcarbazide) copolymers (CMCS-PCEATS) was prepared for determination of iron(II). The interaction between the modifier (CMCS-PCEATS) and iron(II) ions at the electrode surface was characterized using scanning electron microscope (SEM), the energy dispersive X-ray analyzer (EDX) and FTIR. Effect of different plasticizers (TCP, o-NPOE, FPNPE, DBP, DOP...
