    Abstract: Background: The surfactant, didodecyl dimethyl ammonium bromide (DDAB), was used to immobilize myoglobin (Mb) onto glassy carbon (GC) electrode surfaces. The Mb/DDAB film on GC electrode showed good charge transport rates. Objectives: Mb in DDAB was utilised as a redox catalyst for reduction reactions requiring multi-electron transfers. Cyclic volt...

    Abstract: The optimization of stripping processes requires the simulation of correlations for a preliminary analysis of the system behavior while avoiding complex, costly, and time-consuming manipulations on a reduced scale. This study gives a suitable strategy while selecting stripping column packings. The strategic use of the genetic algorithm NGSAIIb allo... Show More
