  • If the ethanol is destined for fuel use, however, fusel oils may be left in the mixture to act as a denaturant.

    3 Ethanol Production

  • Production costs include corn costs, conversion costs (defined as the cost of converting the corn into ethanol, and includes production salaries, wages and stock-based compensation costs, fringe benefits, utilities (including coal and natural gas), maintenance, denaturant, insurance, materials and supplies and other miscellaneous production costs) and depreciation.


  • The company won't give its recipe, but perhaps coincidentally, denaturant formula 38-B contains eucalyptol, menthol, methyl salicylate, and thymol.

  • The original experiments reconstituting GroEL-GroES-mediated protein folding were carried out under "nonpermissive" conditions, where the chaperonin system was absolutely required and substrate proteins could not achieve the native state if diluted directly from denaturant into solution.

  • We suspect protein misfolding, and possible formation of soluble aggregates, lead to nonfunctional protein, and hence, our use of significant amounts of denaturant that maintains protein solubility, yet decreases the physiological relevance of these experimental conditions.

  • In this study traditional semiquantitative culture-dependent methods for diagnosis of bacteria involved in central venous catheter-related infections as described by Maki were compared with the following culture-independent molecular biological methods: Clone libraries, denaturant gradient gel electrophoresis, phylogeny and fluorescence in situ hybridization.
