    The purpose of this research is to study the effect of concentration and temperature on the cellulose and lignin content, and the reducing sugars produced in the enzymatic hydrolysis of coconut coir. In this research, the coconut coir is pretreated using 3%, 7%, and 11% NaOH solution at 60oC, 80oC, and 100oC. The pretreated coir were assayed by measuring the amount of cellulose and lignin and then hydrolysed using Celluclast and Novozyme 188 under various temperature (30oC, 40oC, 50oC) and pH (3, 4, 5). The hydrolysis results were assayed for the reducing sugar content. The results showed that the alkaline delignification was effective to reduce lignin and to increase the cellulose content of the coir. The best delignification condition was observed at 11% NaOH solution and 100oC which removed 14,53% of lignin and increased the cellulose content up to 50,23%. The best condition of the enzymatic hydrolysis was obtained at 50oC and pH 4 which produced 7,57 gr/L reducing sugar

    This research was aimed at isolating solasodine from the fruit of Solanum melongena L. and identifying the product of isolation. The isolation was performed initially by direct method steam distillation followed by reflux with concentrated hydrochloric acid to extract the intended substance. Identification of the product was conducted using color test with sulfuric acid (H2SO4), color test according to Briggs and Salkowski, thin layer chromatography (TLC), and Fourier transform−infrared spectrophotometry (FTIR). The reaction of the product and H2SO4 gave a brown coloration, while the result of TLC demonstrated a brown spot with retardation factor (Rf) similar to that of standard solasodine, and the IR spectrum showed peaks similar to those of standard. These results confirmed that solasodine existed in the extract of Solanum melongena L.s fruit and therefore direct method live steam distillation followed by reflux can be used to isolate solasodine from the fruit

    Regime Switching GARCH : An Application to Dowjones Index Return

    Get PDF
    Since firstly proposed by Engle (1982) and Bollerslev (1986), ARCH-GARCH models have been used to describe volatility behaviors of time series, especially in stock market analysis. One of the weaknesses of ARCH-GARCH is its inability to model behavior transition between high volatilities and low volatilities. In this research, markov switching GARCH is investigated and applied to capture the presence of different volatility regimes, i.e. low volatilities regime and high volatility regime in Dowjones index return. However, there is no information to decide which observations belong to each of the regimes, and to account this difficulty, EM algorithm is applied for parameter estimation. The result shows that Dowjones index return includes two volatility regimes. The transition matrix of the model yields that low volatility regime is often happened than the high one

    A New Strategy to Stabilize Oxytocin in Aqueous Solutions: I. The Effects of Divalent Metal Ions and Citrate Buffer

    Get PDF
    In the current study, the effect of metal ions in combination with buffers (citrate, acetate, pH 4.5) on the stability of aqueous solutions of oxytocin was investigated. and divalent metal ions (Ca2+, Mg2+, and Zn2+) were tested all as chloride salts. The effect of combinations of buffers and metal ions on the stability of aqueous oxytocin solutions was determined by RP-HPLC and HP-SEC after 4 weeks of storage at either 4°C or 55°C. Addition of sodium or potassium ions to acetate- or citrate-buffered solutions did not increase stability, nor did the addition of divalent metal ions to acetate buffer. However, the stability of aqueous oxytocin in aqueous formulations was improved in the presence of 5 and 10 mM citrate buffer in combination with at least 2 mM CaCl2, MgCl2, or ZnCl2 and depended on the divalent metal ion concentration. Isothermal titration calorimetric measurements were predictive for the stabilization effects observed during the stability study. Formulations in citrate buffer that had an improved stability displayed a strong interaction between oxytocin and Ca2+, Mg2+, or Zn2+, while formulations in acetate buffer did not. In conclusion, our study shows that divalent metal ions in combination with citrate buffer strongly improved the stability of oxytocin in aqueous solutions

    In this 20th century, technology development becomes very fast, includes internet. This condition gave easiest and fastest way to access any kind of information, including pornography. This research aimed to explore the corelation of attitude of adolescents to pornography in internet and their sexual behavior. Using 50 senior high school students which came to internet rental at the age of 15-19 years old, had chosed by incidental sampling, the results showed that there is a positive and significant correlation between attitudes of pornography in internet with sexual behovior of adolescents (r:0.371, and p:0.009). Sexual behovior was measured from behavior of awakening and exploration, autosexuality and heterosexuality that is including kissing necking petting, heavy petting, and copulation. From pornography in internet, adolescents only learn that sex is somehow more romantic or less wrong if it "just happens " and full of passion. By portraying spontaneous, unplanned genital intercourse as the ultimate pleasure, these programs model a behavior that puts teens at increased risk for sexually transmitted diseases or unplanned pregnancies. Community counseling approach gave complete and integrated intervention model to help adolescents. For community direct intervention, non traditional sex education for adolescents was designed as community-wide educational programs And for community indirect intervention, suggested government to make regulation for internet rental business. Individual, group and peer counseling for the direct clients intervention. And parents', teachers' developing program for indirect clients' intervention
