Biopolymers are a promising new class of adsorbent materials for separation of heavy metal ions from dilute aqueous waste streams.
Highly porous chitosan biopolymer beads have been synthesized which have internal surface areas exceeding 200 m 2 per gram of adsorbent and exhibit a high selectivity toward removal of toxic heavy metal ions over sodium metal ions.
The potential application of transition-metal selective biopolymer adsorbents to the control of heavy metal ion accumulation in TCF bleaching sequence wash waters is proposed.

  Extended life biopolymer array scanner system patent invention
Biopolymer arrays are often scanned and/or scan results are often represented at 5 or 10 micron pixel resolution.
Biopolymers are typically found in biological systems and particularly include polysaccharides (such as carbohydrates), peptides (which term is used to include polypeptides and proteins) and polynucleotides as well as their analogs such as those compounds composed of or containing amino acid analogs or non-amino acid groups, or nucleotide analogs or non-nucleotide groups.
Biopolymers include polynucleotides in which the conventional backbone has been replaced with a non-naturally occurring or synthetic backbone, and nucleic acids (or synthetic or naturally occurring analogs) in which one or more of the conventional bases has been replaced with a group (natural or synthetic) capable of participating in Watson-Crick type hydrogen bonding interactions.

 MVS Solutions - Method of making biopolymer-based nonlinear optical materials
Alignment of biopolymer molecules, which is required for NLO phenomena, is achieved by application of an electric field parallel to the surface of a biopolymer solution as the film is formed.
Biopolymers that form.alpha.-helical structures in solution are preferred because the geometry of the.alpha.-helix permits dipoles to form and allows the helices to pack in an ordered manner.
Biopolymers such as PBLG may be derivatized with a variety of functional groups, such as nitro, chosen to enhance the NLO effect.

 MVS Solutions - Biopolymer-based optical element
In a most preferred embodiment, the oriented biopolymer structure of the optical elements of the present invention is formed by applying an electric field between a pair of electrodes and parallel to a surface of a solution of a biopolymer and a helicogenic solvent and subsequently evaporating the helicogenic solvent.
In one embodiment, the photoresponsive compound is incorporated into the oriented structure of the biopolymer by contacting a solution of the photoresponsive compound, a doping solvent and, optionally, other additives such as a surfactant and a polymer binder, onto the biopolymer and subsequently evaporating the doping solvent.
Suitable temporary carrier substrates may be a variety of rigid and flexible substrates either which have poor adhesion to the oriented biopolymer film such that the oriented biopolymer film may be delaminated from the substrate or which develop poor adhesion to the oriented biopolymer film upon exposure to a solvent-based or aqueous-based solution.

 Biopolymer has good growth prospects in the World
Implementation of the Kyoto Protocol will also bring into sharper focus the relative performance of biopolymers and synthetics in terms of their respective energy use and CO 2 emissions.
As of 2002, there were 47 producers of biopolymers in the world, only 2 of which had capacity greater than 40,000 tpa and 6 had capacity greater than 10,000 tpa.
The use of legislative instruments is a significant driver influencing the adoption of biopolymers in place of the petroleum based polymers.

 about biopolymers
Whether the use of biopolymers will contribute to a more sustainable society is a question that will have to be studied by a representative life cycle analysis (LCA) of each application and by comparison with existing applications.
Representative LCAs are needed at material and product levels; they must make allowance for future developments in biopolymers and take account of all relevant environmental impacts associated with the complete product life cycle, including the depletion of raw materials, the agricultural use of fertilizers and pesticides, transportation, utilization and waste disposal.
This material issue, About Biopolymers, is based on the report ‘Tenminste houdbaar tot: verpakken met biopolymeren’, compiled by ‘het Nederlands Verpakkingscentrum’, AgLink, KIEM and Proterra.

 Space Studies Board
If that biopolymer is RNA, Figure 1 offers an autotrophic metabolism that involves fixation of carbon dioxide (4 catalysts, by analogy with the reductive tricarboxylic acid cycle), carbohydrate biosynthesis (5 catalysts exploiting cyanide-based couplings and aldol reactions), triphosphate generation (6 catalysts), nitrogen metabolism (3 catalysts), and nucleotide biosynthesis (28 catalysts, adopted directly from contemporary pathways).
This implies in turn that it is difficult to find a single biopolymer that does both, suggesting that single-biopolymer life-forms might be less robust than two-biopolymer life-forms and that the small cells that single-biopolymer life enables might be scarcer in the universe than large cells.
A biopolymer specialized for catalysis must be able to change its physical properties rapidly with few changes in its sequence, enabling it to explore "function space" during divergent evolution.
