Stoichiometric Approach toward Modeling the Decomposition Kinetics of Gas Hydrates Formed from Mixed Gases
Following a recent study by Giraldo et al. ( Giraldo, C.; Maini, B.; Bishnoi, P. R. A simplified approach to modeling the rate of formation of gas hydrates formed from mixtures of gases. Energy Fuels 2013, 27, 1204−1211), in which a new stoichiometry-based approach was taken to model the rate of gas hydrate formation for mixed gases, a new stoichiometric approach has been proposed to describe the kinetics of gas hydrate decomposition from mixed gases. Similar to the model of gas hydrate formation by Giraldo et al., the newly proposed model of gas hydrate decomposition has the advantage that the intrinsic rate constant of gas hydrate decomposition is only required for a single component. To test the model, gas hydrate decomposition experiments were conducted in a semi-batch stirred-tank reactor, equipped with an in situ particle size analyzer, to study the rate of decomposition of gas hydrates formed from mixtures of carbon dioxide and methane. Two gas mixtures of CO2 (1) + CH4 (2), one with x1 = 0.4 and t...
We recently generalized the formerly alignment-dependent multivariate image analysis applied to quantitative structure–activity relationships (MIA-QSAR) method through the application of the discrete Fourier transform (DFT), allowing for its application to noncongruent and structurally dive ... more
Poly-ADP-ribosylation (PARylation) is a protein posttranslational modification (PTM) that is critically involved in many biological processes that are linked to cell stress responses. It is catalyzed by a class of enzymes known as poly-ADP-ribose polymerases (PARPs). In particular, PARP1 is ... more
This review focuses on the type A cytochrome c oxidases (CcO), which are found in all mitochondria and also in several aerobic bacteria. CcO catalyzes the respiratory reduction of dioxygen (O2) to water by an intriguing mechanism, the details of which are fairly well understood today as a r ... more
