I've really worked on the chapters in this ebook and can only say that if you put in the time you will never revert back to your old methods.

Overall my first impression of this ebook is good. I think it was sincerely written and looks to be very helpful.

100% Natural Multi-purpose Cleaner

All natural enzymatic cleaner digests stains that are present around the home. This stain digester can be used in the kitchen area, on clothes, on the carper, on pet accessories, on furniture, and even in the bathroom. It removes stubborn stains naturally as compared to using chemicals. The multi enzyme formula works within minutes and breaks down organic soils, leaving the surface clean. Stains are made up of different types of molecules. To effectively remove those stains, a variety of enzymes are needed to break them down. For instance, enzyme protease breaks down proteins and therefore is the best for removal of blood, eggs, and other protein stains. Lipase, on the other hand, is best for the breakage of fats and grease whereas amylase is best used for the breakage of starch. The enzyme concentrate is all natural, non-toxic, versatile, super sturdy, and safe for colors for use on bright colors, pets, and even kids. In addition to that, the enzymatic cleaner can also be used by other living things with allergies and chemical sensitivities. The all natural enzymatic cleaner also remove stains that occurred years ago, as attested by different customers who have purchased it. Read more...

Detergents Cleaners And Surfactants

Once the majority of debris and film has been removed, the surface should be cleaned. Commonly, detergents or cleaners are used to solubilize any deposits at this stage. Each detergent has unique properties of action for the most effective application. Generally, increasing the concentration beyond recommended levels provides little additional benefit and is not cost effective. Another variable is the contact time necessary between the detergent and application surface, which varies with the agent(s) uses and the mode of application. On the one hand, high-pressure spray requires less contact time than foams or gels. However, gels allow additional contact time with the surface and can be used in low-pressure systems (Wirtanen and Salo, 2003). Several different components may be present in a particular detergent formulation. These include alkalies, acids, surfactants, and chelating agents, in varying proportions. Such formulations are often referred to as built detergents or built...

Michael J Sutcliffe1 and Nigel S Scrutton2

Enzymes facilitate life via a plethora of reactions in living organisms. Not only do they sustain life - they are also involved in a myriad of processes that affect our everyday lives. These include applications in medicine, household detergents, fine chemical synthesis, the food industry, bioelec-tronics and the degradation of chemical waste. Since the discovery of enzymes just over a century ago, we have witnessed an explosion in our understanding of enzyme catalysis, leading to a more detailed appreciation of how they work. Over many years, much effort has been expended in the quest to create enzymes for specific biotechnological roles. Prior to the early 1980s, the only methods available for changing enzyme structure were those of chemical modification of functional groups (so-called 'forced evolution'). The genetic engineering revolution has provided tools for dissecting enzyme structure and enabling design of novel function. Chemical methods have now been surpassed by...

Characteristics And Sources Of Wastewater

Dairy cleaning waters may also contain a variety of sterilizing agents and various acid and alkaline detergents. Thus, the pH of the wastewaters can vary significantly depending on the cleaning strategy employed. The most commonly used CIP chemicals are caustic soda, nitric acid, phosphoric acid, and sodium hypochlorite 10 these all have a significant impact on wastewater pH. Other concerns related to CIP and sanitizing strategies include the biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) and chemical oxygen demand (COD) contributions (normally

New mesoporous materials

In the past 20 years or so, the field of supramolecular chemistry has become enormously important, with Jean-Marie Lehn, Donald Cram and Charles Pedersen winning the Nobel Prize in 1987. The concept of supramolecular chemistry is that molecules can self-organise into definite structures, without forming covalent bonds, but rather through weaker interactions such as hydrogen bonding. A hydrogen bond is a special type of weak chemical bond, which holds water molecules together, giving water many unique properties - the same bond is critical to the formation of the double helix of DNA, and is often of extreme importance in biological systems. Hydrophobic interactions, also important in self-assembly, are interactions between oily molecules which minimise contact with water by causing the oily parts to huddle together. One example of the latter, although not at all new, is the ability of molecules containing a polar head group and a long non-polar hydrocarbon tail (surfactants) to form...

Envelope Glycoproteins

The structure of most enveloped viruses is not as rigorously constrained as that of icosahedral virus particles. The glycoproteins are not required to form an impenetrable shell, which is instead a function of the lipid bilayer. They appear to tolerate mutations more readily than do proteins that must form a tight icosahedral shell and appear to evolve rapidly in response to immune pressure. However, the integrity of the lipid bilayer is essential for virus infectivity, and enveloped viruses are very sensitive to detergents.

Maturation Cleavages in Viral Structural Proteins

In the picornaviruses, a provirion is first formed that is composed of the viral RNA complexed with three viral proteins, called VP0, VP1, and VP3. During maturation to form the virion, VP0 is cleaved to VP2 and VP4. No protease has been found that performs this cleavage, and it has been postulated that the virion RNA may catalyze it. Cleavage to produce VP4, which is found within the interior of the capsid shell, as illustrated schematically in Fig. 2.9, is required for the virus to be infectious. As described in Chapter 1, VP4 appears to be required for entry of the virus into the cell. This maturation cleavage has another important consequence. Whereas the provirion is quite unstable, the mature virion is very stable. The poliovirus virion will survive treatment with proteolytic enzymes and detergents, and survives exposure to the acidic pH of less than 2 that is present in the stomach. Only on binding to its receptor (Figs. 1.4 and 2.9) is poliovirus destabilized such that VP4 can...

Prevention of HIV transmission

Can be done by testing their blood for HIV-specific antibodies (Chapter 2). The preparation of blood products for haemophiliacs can include treatment with lipid solvents and detergents to destroy the virions of HIV (and other enveloped viruses, such as hepatitis B virus).

Host defense mechanisms and pathogen survival strategies

There are multiple human host defense mechanisms acting all along the human gastrointestinal tract that help prevent infection by foodborne bacterial pathogens. These include non-specific defenses against all bacteria as well as defenses specific to particular pathogens that are part of an adaptive immune response. Some of the body's non-specific defenses include the acidic pH and proteolytic enzymes in the stomach, detergents and flushing action in the small intestine, as well as competitive microflora in the large intestine. The human host also combats foodborne bacterial pathogens using innate and adaptive immune responses generated via interaction between pathogen and the intestinal mucosa. In this way, the human intestine acts as a key player in the development of healthy immune functioning. A major component of intestinal immunity, responsible for generating a specific adaptive immune response to foodborne pathogens, is gastrointestinal-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), which...

By Mitotic Xenopus Egg Extract in Semi Intact MDCK Cells

Semi-intact cells are cells with plasma membranes that have been permeabilized by bacterial pore-forming toxins or detergents. Various intracellular events can be functionally reconstituted in semi-intact cells by incubation with cytosol and adenosine triphosphate (ATP Fig. 1). Because semi-intact cells allow direct access of chemicals and antibodies to the cytoplasm of the cells, they permit study of the molecular mechanisms of the reconstituted process biochemically. We used a bacterial cytolysin, streptolysin O (SLO), to permeabilize the cells (1-3). SLO binds to cholesterol in plasma membranes at 4 C. At warmer temperatures, SLO assembles to form amphiphilic hexamers, resulting in the generation of small, stable transmembrane pores (4).

The Oxidized LDL Hypothesis

Modified Ldl

Low density lipoproteins (LDL) are plasma particles that contain in association with protein several types of lip-ids with a predominance of phospholipids, free and es-terified cholesterol, for a total of about 1200 unsaturated fatty acid chains. In the presence of high levels of LDL - a well-recognized risk factor for developing atherosclerosis - influx of cholesterol and LDL into the intima is increased. In addition to binding to connective tissue elements (such as proteoglycans), accumulated LDL is progressively oxidized 36-38, 56 (Fig. 1.2.4). This increased oxidation gives rise to the production of several toxic products. For example, free radicals chain reaction within the lipid chains form hydroperoxides that easily break down, generating aldehydes (malonaldehyde, 4-hy-droxynonenal) and other toxic substances that can react with lysine moieties in the B-apoprotein part of the LDLs. Other toxic products include for example 7- -hydroper-oxycholesterol, 7-ketocholesterol,...

Onsite Pretreatment Options

As shown in Table 1.2, large variations exist in wastewater pH from different dairy factories. This may be directly attributed to the different cleaning strategies employed. Alkaline detergents generally used for the saponification of lipids and the effective removal of proteinacous substances would typically have a pH of 10-14, while apH of 1.5-6.0 can be encountered with acidic cleaners used for the removal of mineral deposits and acid-based sanitizers 11,29 . The optimum pH range for biological treatment plants is between 6.5 and 8.5 30,31 . Extreme pH values can be highly detrimental to any biological treatment facility, not only for the negative effect that it will have on the microbial community, but also due to the increased corrosion of pipes that will occur at pH values below 6.5 and above 10 6 . Therefore, some form of pH adjustment as a pretreatment step is strongly advised before wastewater containing cleaning agents is discharged to the drain or further treated onsite. In...

General features of the immune system

Immunity refers to the body's resistance to invasive pathogens (viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoa and multicellular parasites) or their toxic products, to allergens With regard to pathogens, the immune response depends on the site of infection and the nature of the pathogen. All viruses, some bacteria and some protozoan parasites replicate inside host cells, whereas many bacteria and larger parasites replicate in extracellular spaces and body fluids. To clear an intracellular infection, it is necessary to destroy the infected host cells. Extracellular pathogens are selectively destroyed and their toxic products neutralized.

Postsecretory trafficking of GRAs within the parasitophorous vacuole

The GRAs exhibit various types of membrane association. While both GRA1 and NTPases exhibit a very loose association with the MNN (Sibley et al., 1994, 1995), GRA4 is only displaced by urea treatment (Labruyere et al., 1999), suggesting an association based mainly on hydrogen bonds. In contrast, GRA2, GRA3, and GRA5-9 are only quantitatively displaced from their respective membranes by non-ionic detergents, indicating membrane-spanning domains stabilized by hydrophobic interactions. For both GRA2 (Mercier et al., 1998a) and GRA5 (Lecordier et al., 1999), the respective putative

Extraction of Microbial Cells from Environmental Matrices

An alternative method to disperse soil particles and dissociate microbial cells from soil, sediment or root parts involves the use of cation exchange resins. Shaking cf soil with, for instance, Dowex39 or Chdex-10029,40,41 is used to remove the bivalent and polyvalent cations responsible for electrostatic bonding between like-charged bacterial cells and soil particles. Detergents are also used to overcome adhesive interactions. A comparison of five different treatments (Fig. 3.2) showed that cell extraction could be improved by using Stomacher blending instead of shaking. Consistent results and a fairly rapid treatment were possible with the automated paddle action of the Stomacher. On the other hand, Lindahl and Bakken42 did not find any positive effect of the Chelex-100 treatment on cell extraction efficiency and, thus, recommended simple, threefold repeated, blending with water. Shaking in low-electrolyte concentrations, e.g. in distilled water, increases the interactive free...

Translocation Into Neuronal Cytosol

Work intended to elucidate the mechanism of membrane translocation revealed that low pH induces structural rearrangements that uncover previously buried hydro-phobic regions within the HN domain. Amino acid segments of this domain, which exclusively interact at low pH with nonionic detergents, were cross-linked with phosphatidylcholine analogues when embedded in unilamellar asolectin model membranes or became resistant to protease treatment.84-87

The Nucleocapsid

Cell, and can be isolated from virions by treatment with detergents that dissolve the envelope. The nucleocapsids of alphaviruses, and probably flaviviruses and arteri-viruses as well, are regular icosahedral structures, and there are no other proteins within the nucleocapsid other than the nucleocapsid protein. In contrast, the nucleocap-sids of all minus-strand viruses are helical and contain, in addition to the major nucleocapsid protein, two or more minor proteins that possess enzymatic activity. As described, the nucleocapsids of minus-strand RNA viruses remain intact within the cell during the entire

Lipid peroxidation

The polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) incorporated into the phospholipids of cell plasma membranes, the membranes of subcellular organelles (e.g. mitochondria) and plasma lipoproteins are susceptible to attack by certain free radicals such as *OH, LOO* and LO*. These free radicals initiate chain reactions that, if not stopped by chain-breaking antioxidants, result in the accumulation of toxic products. The process of lipid peroxidation can be conveniently divided into three stages initiation, propagation and termination.

Safety Issues

The hazard potential surrounding winery cleaning and sanitation is high owing to the use of (a) strong oxidants, caustics, and or acidic chemicals, (b) high-pressure hot water and or steam, and (c) slippery floors. Because of these, personal protective equipment (PPE) including gloves, goggles, appropriate footwear, and waterproof aprons are essential (Section 19.2.7). Given the slippery properties of detergents when discharged on floors, boots with nonskid soles should be used. Ideally, pants should not be tucked into boots as this could allow hot water or chemical directly into the boot. It is critical that employees read the product labels and understand the procedures for their use. The location of Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS), sheets that contain the necessary health and safety information for employees working with the agent, should also be readily available and clearly identifiable (Chapter 19). Finally, dry chemicals should always be added to cold water rather than to...

Water Quality

Additional attention should be paid to the water hardness. Due to the presence of calcium, magnesium, and other alkali metals, hard water interferes with the effectiveness of detergents, particularly bicarbonates, and contributes to the formation of precipitates or scale on equipment. Besides diminishing the appearance of equipment, these precipitates serve as sites for accumulation of organic debris and microorganisms, making sanitation difficult if not impossible. Perhaps the least expensive method to alleviate this problem is through installation of a water softener.


The most commonly used detergents include strong alkalies or caustics such as NaOH (caustic soda or lye) or KOH (caustic potash). Although both NaOH and KOH have excellent detergent properties and remove fats and proteins, KOH has better rinse ability than NaOH. One method is to use 1 to 2 w v sodium hydroxide in heated water (75 C 167 F to 80 C 176 F) for a cleaning time of 15 to 20 min (Wirtanen and


In biochemical assays, component A binds unprenylated Rab1A, presents it to the catalytic component B, and remains bound to it after the geranylgeranyl transfer reaction (131). In the absence of detergents, the reaction terminates when all of component A is occupied with prenylated Rab. Detergents allow multiple rounds of catalysis, apparently by dissociating the component A-Rab complex and thus allowing recycling of component A. Within the cell, component A may be regenerated by transferring its prenylated Rab to a protein acceptor, such as Rab3A GDI. In view of its function in escorting Rab proteins during and presumably after the prenyl transfer reaction, component A was renamed as Rab escort protein (REP) (131).

Sources Of Sulfur

Sulfur is found in many different compounds of natural and pollutant origin and is very common in wastewater. Domestic wastewater contains approximately 3-6 mg liter of organic sulfur as proteinaceous wastes and approximately 4mg liter of organic sulfur as sulfonates derived from detergents. Domestic wastewater also con- Industrial wastewaters also may contain large quantities of sulfur-containing compounds. Industrial wastewaters of concern are those that contain sulfonated detergents and sulfite waste liquor.

The nature of prions

Proteinase K, the misfolded protein is largely resistant. The enzyme is able to digest only 90-100 amino acid residues from the N terminus the remaining 27-30 kD portion of the protein remains intact. Misfolding also renders the protein insoluble in nonionic detergents. In prion-diseased tissues molecules of the misfolded protein aggregate as fibrils, rods or other forms, depending on the host and the prion strain.

Blood Collection

All glassware for coagulation studies must be scrupulously clean. Used glassware should be free of chemicals and any traces of human blood components. All glassware should be cleaned in detergents free of organic solvents and rinsed several times with distilled water. The use of disposable syringes and needles eliminates the need for siliconizing glassware.

Cell Disruption

Chemical action such as solubilization of the cell membrane with detergents, 2. Commony used detergents are sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and N-lauroylsarcosine (Sarcosyl). Cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) is also often used. Nonpolar detergents, such as Triton X, Tween or Nonidet P-40, which provide for milder treatments, are less common.

Stability Of Virions

Environment for considerable periods, for example, must be more stable than viruses that pass quickly from one host to the next. As an example of such requirements, consider the closely related polioviruses and rhinoviruses, members of two different genera of the family Picornaviridae. These viruses shared a common ancestor in the not too distant past and have structures that are very similar. The polioviruses are spread by an oral-fecal route and have the ability to persist in a hostile extracellular environment for some time where they may contaminate drinking water or food. Furthermore, they must pass through the stomach, where the pH is less than 2, to reach the intestinal tract where they begin the infection cycle. It is not surprising, therefore, that the poliovirion is stable to storage and to treatments such as exposure to mild detergents or to pH 2. In contrast, rhi-noviruses are spread by aerosols or contaminated mucus, and spread normally requires close contact. The...


The role of sclerotherapy is controversial, with practitioner's views based largely on professional background and country of origin rather than on clinical comparative studies. Some scle-rotherapists believe they can treat all VVs, but most accept the superiority of surgery in the presence of main stem, SFJ, or SPJ incompetence. However, the advent of foam sclerosants may revolutionize the management of such disease. The aim is to place a small volume of sclerosant in the lumen of a vein empty of blood, and then appose the walls of that vein with appropriate compression. The vein then fibroses closed without the formation of clot. Some practitioners use magnifying loupes for smaller veins, and there is increasing interest in injecting larger veins under ultrasound guidance (echosclerotherapy). The vein must be kept empty of blood both during and after the injection to prevent thrombophlebitis. Adequate compression is difficult in the perineum, upper thigh, and popliteal fossa,...

Ethylene glycol

It may be ingested accidentally or suicidally, but it is most commonly taken deliberately as a cheap substitute for alcohol. Although not toxic itself, its metabolism via alcohol dehydrogenase gives several toxic products, including aldehydes, glycolate, oxalate and lactic acid. Its half-life is about 3 h. Poisoning from ethylene glycol has many similarities with that from methanol.


However, many industrial processes are based on the use of very strong acids, and there is great pressure to find replacements for the liquid acids currently used in industrial processes. One method which has been successfully applied to increase the acidity of these systems is the immobilisation of aluminium chloride onto the pore walls. Aluminium chloride is itself a very strong acid, and is one of the commonest in industrial chemistry. It is used in a wide range of transformations, but cannot be recovered intact from reactions. Its destruction leads to large quantities of waste being generated. Aluminium chloride has been successfully attached to the walls of HMS materials, without any reduction in activity - i.e. the resultant material has the same activity as unsupported aluminium chloride. A major advantage over free aluminium chloride is the ease of removal of the solid catalyst from reaction mixtures, simplifying the process and reducing waste dramatically. The catalyst can...


Surfactants are the key ingredient of detergents. Surfactants are the surface-active agents, which make water wetter that is, a better cleaning agent. Surfactants concentrate at the interfaces of water with gases, solids (dirt), and immiscible liquids (oils). Although surfactants contribute to operational problems, other ingredients in detergents also contribute to operational problems. Most commercial solid detergents contain 10-30 surfactant. An additional critical component of a detergent FIGURE 19.15 Lauryl sulfate (sodium dodecylsulfate).
