Optimization of Water Based Drilling Fluid Produced Using Modified Nigerian Bentonite and Natural Biopolymers: Reduced experiment and Response Surface Methodology

A. Arinkoola; T. Salawudeen; K. Salam; M. Jimoh; Z. Atitebi; G. Abidemi

Volume 16, Issue 1 , March 2019, , Pages 39-53

  Research has shown that many Bentonite in Nigeria are unsuitable for oil well drilling in their natural states. Their modification and blends with some additives could increase the yield and boost their suitability. Many indigenous polymers have become very popular due to environmental friendliness and ...  Read More

Lipase Immobilized into Novel GPTMS: TMOS Derived Sol-Gels and Its Application for Biodiesel Production from Waste Oil

M. Nikpour; M. Pazouki

Volume 13, Issue 1 , January 2016, , Pages 32-46

  In this essay, lipase from Burkholderia cepacia was immobilized into 3-glycidoxypropyltrimethoxysilane (GPTMS) and tetramethoxysilane (TMOS) derived sol-gels. GPTMS:TMOS molar ratio of 1:3 was found to yield the best result. The morphological characteristics were investigated based on SEM and BET analysis. ...  Read More
