Biodiesel production by hydroesterification of microalgal biomass using heterogeneous catalyst  [PDF]
Yordanaka Reyes, Gisel Chenard, Donato Aranda, Cristiane Mesquita, Mariana Fortes, Rafael Jo?o, Leonardo Bacellar
Natural Science (NS) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2012.410102
Abstract: This paper assesses the hydroesterification process for the production of Biodiesel from Monoraphidium contortum (MORF-1) microalgae biomass, as it is a sustainable alternative not only economically, but also environmentally and ecologically to replace petroleum diesel fuel. The Biodiesel studied in this work was obtained from fatty acid esterification, a product of microalgae and methanol biomass hydrolysis reaction. CBMM’s (HY-340) niobium oxide powder was used as catalyst. The reactions were carried out in a properly closed autoclave reactor (batch), where the reagents were mixed under constant stirring at 500 rpm for hydrolysis and esterification. The products generated were submitted to gas chromatography and oxidative stability analysis. The hydroesterification process showed itself to be a promising alternative to the conventional biodiesel production process (transesterification) as it favors the use of feedstocks with any acidity and moisture content and may be performed with acid catalyst, which favors high conversions in a small range of time (30 minutes).

Natural Science (NS) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2015.77039
Abstract: It is of great knowledge nowadays that the use of fossil fuels is responsible for the emission of gases that intensify the greenhouse effect, which threatens the survival of the humankind. The gravity of this fact could be mitigated through the indirect use of solar energy for fuels derived from vegetable that can be planted and cultivated by the world of renewable and non-polisher. Microalgae play an important role in this regard, as they have promising characteristics as potential raw material for the production of biofuels, able to absorb large amounts of CO2. Chlorophyll organisms convert these simple substances in the atmosphere, absorbing sunlight into chemical energy stored, that is, compounds with high energy, biomass can also be used to obtain biocompounds human nutritional supplement and food animal, however, have been found an important number of difficulties to economically viable production like high cost of production of dry biomass and oil extraction. Here, we review the main approaches of biorefinery concept appearing as an alternative to achieve economic viability of the production of bio-diesel based on microalgae. The major points are the following: 1) use of re-residual water, 2) marketing of Carbon Credits, and 3) development of co-products resulting from high value added.

Natural Science (NS) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ns.2014.615108
Abstract: This work studies the saponification which directs the wet biomass of algae Chlamydomonas sp. like a previous stage to production of biodiesel. This stage allows the obtainment of fatty acids to produce biodiesel, instead of the gross lipid fraction. In addition of the fatty acids, utilizing the same process one can also obtain the fraction unsaponifiable, these are soluble in apolar solvents and contain mainly carotenoids that can take action as antioxidants and photoprotectors, as they reduce the oxidation of unsaturated fatty acids. The saponification direct and extraction of fatty acids from biomass is faster and reduces the time and cost of operation. The separation of unsaponifiable matter from the biomass humid of microalgae Chlamydomonas sp., was held according to the method AOCS (Ca 6a-40), using extraction Liquid-liquid with hexane as solvent. Subsequently, phase hydroalcoholic or from soap, containing fatty acids, was acidified by addition of H2SO4 and the fatty acids were recovered by the addition of hexane. After acidulation of the soap, necessary for obtaining of the fatty acids was performed the stage of esterification for obtaining of biodiesel. The operating conditions were: molar ratio fatty acid:methanol (1:10), as catalyst 8% H2SO4 calculated in relation to the mass of fatty acid, 200 and reaction time of 90 minutes. The content of methyl esters was 96.8% determined by gas chromatography according to standard EN14103. The quality of biodiesel produced from wet biomass of Chlamydomonas sp. is according to the specification established by standard EN 14214 and RANP No. 14. For the identification of the composition the unsaponifiable fraction was used the method of High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC). The composition of the material unsaponifiable found was of: Carotenoids total (0.76%); Lutein (0.45%); Zeaxanthin (0.07%); α-carotene (0.05%); β-carotene (0.11%); 13 cisβ-carotene (0.05%) and 9-cisβ-carotene (0.03%).

Abstract: Este trabajo presenta el desarrollo de un inmunosensor amperométrico composito a base de una proteína de origen vegetal para la determinación de antí-anticuerpo de S. mansoni. El inmunosensor consiste en una matriz electródica rígida construida con grafito y resina epoxi en la que se inmoviliza covalentemente la Apirasa. La estrategia de inmovilización se basa en silanización de la matriz compósita con 3-aminopropilsilano (3-APTES) y su activación mediante glutaraldehído. La inmovilización fue monitoreada mediante voltaamperometría cíclica en Fe(CN)6(4-)/Fe(CN)63, obteniéndose una respuesta cuasi-reversible del inmunosensor y muy estable en el tiempo. La inmovilización también fue caracterizada mediante ángulos de contactos y microscopía electrónica de barrido. Estas cualidades son aprovechables para la determinación clínica de esquistosomiasis dada la rapidez y sensibilidad de respuesta.

ágora: Estudos em Teoria Psicanalítica , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S1516-14982006000200003
Abstract: the article intends to distinguish the way structure is regarded by psychology from the way it is conceived in psychoanalysis, with the aim of analyzing the specificity of the idea of structure in psychoanalytical theory and its importance in relation to temporality. to this effect, psychological structure is seen firstly from the point of view of psychological gestaltism, a structuralism without genesis, and secondly, in piagetian theory, which introduces genesis into structure. in psychoanalytical structure temporality is of the order of actualization, as it can be seen in the concept of a posteriori (nachtr?glichkeit).
