  1. 1. Chemical recycling of cotton-based waste textiles by sulfuric acid hydrolysis

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Edvin Ruuth; [2020]
    Keywords : recycling; hydrolysis; cotton; waste textiles; sulfuric acid; glucose; chemical engineering; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Large amounts of waste textiles are produced annually, of which only a small fraction is recycled currently. The purpose of this study was to develop a method to recycle cotton-based waste textiles chemically that can be coupled to the production of biofuels or green chemicals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Methods for production of recombinant enzymes for collagen degradation

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Tillämpad biokemi; Lunds universitet/Teoretisk kemi

    Author : Tea Eriksson; Elin Su; [2020]
    Keywords : Collagenase; Subtilisin; Collagen; Enzymatic hydrolysis; Enzymes; Collagen degradation; Enzyme production; Cloning; Gene optimization; Protein expression; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : In this thesis eight enzymes have been identified with documented ability to degrade collagen or its hydrolyzed products. Collagen can be found in skin, bones, and connective tissue. Hydrolyzed collagen peptides are utilized in food, disease treatment, skincare and training supplements. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microwave Heat Treatment of Black Liquor for the Degradation of Hemicellulose

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Kemiteknik (CI)

    Author : Maja Rydgård; [2020]
    Keywords : lignin; biofuel; black liquor; heat treatment; microwave heating; chemical engineering; kemiteknik; Technology and Engineering; Chemistry;

    Abstract : The largest use of fossil petroleum is the production of fuels. Hence, finding sustainable alter-natives is an important step to reduce the emissions of greenhouse gases. One such alternative is to produce fuel from biomass, such as waste products from agriculture and the forest indus-try. READ MORE

  4. 4. The anti-amyloidogenic chaperone DNAJB6 and its interaction with other chaperones

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Matematisk statistik; Lunds universitet/Kemiska institutionen

    Author : Gemma Nilsson; [2020]
    Keywords : chaperones; DNAJB6; Hsc70; Hsp110; ATP-hydrolysis; Ab42; polyQ; biochemistry; biokemi; Chemistry;

    Abstract : In order to maintain proteins’ functionality their native folding state must be preserved. Chaperones fold other proteins and DNAJ-chaperones may collaborate with Hsc70 chaperones to prevent aggregation of aggregation-prone peptides such as polyQ and Aβ42, which form fibrils in currently incurable diseases as Huntington’s and Alzheimer’s, respectively.
