Silver nanoparticles are widely used, because of their antimicrobial properties. In this paper, the rate of starch digestion in the presence of nanocatalyst was compared with the rate of reaction without nanosilver. The rate of enzymatic degradation of starch was found to be increased in the presence of silver nanoparticles. It is considered that α-amylase was immobilized onto the surface of nanoparticles.
A concept of the safety boundary diagram, elaborated in our previous studies for liquid–liquid heterogeneous reactions, has been developed here for liquid-phase homogeneous semibatch reactors. With the use of this boundary diagram, inherently safe-operating conditions can be easily determined without costly and time-consuming kinetic studies. A rapid procedure to estimate the dosing time and the cooling...
