    Abstract: Pseudoalteromonas piscicida WM21 was isolated from seawater at Hurghada, Red Sea, Egypt. It was promising to hydrolyze the polysaccharides of Ulva lactuca. Ulva lactuca contained 44% carbohydrates, 5% lipids, 16% proteins, 12% Fibers and 23% ash. Optimization of reducing sugars production by P. piscicida WM21 was investigated using Plackett- Burmma...

    Abstract: In this study, 26 samples from northwest Taiwan, 12 from Mainland China, 13 from Australia and 39 from literature were jointly examined to explore relationships among pyrolysis parameters, Vitrinite Reflectance Ro%, and Atomic H/C ratio. Samples of mixed high and low maturity coal were combined in proportions determined by the total quantity in the... Show More
