The influence of substrate hydrophobicity and biomacromolecules (dextran, bovine serum albumin - BSA) adsorption on the cleanability of surfaces soiled by spraying aqueous suspensions of quartz particles (10 to 30 µm size), then dried, was investigated using glass and polystyrene as substrates. The cleanability was evaluated using radial flow cell (RFC). The surface composition was determined by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The interpretation of XPS data allowed the complexity due to the ubiquitous presence of organic contaminants to be coped with, and the surface composition to be expressed in terms of both the amount of adlayer and the mass concentration of adlayer constituents. When soiled with a suspension of particles in water, glass was much less cleanable than polystyrene, which was attributed to its much lower water contact angle, in agreement with previous observations on starch soil. Dextran was easily desorbed and did not affect the cleanability. The presence of BSA at the interface strongly improved the cleanability of glass while the contact angle did not change appreciably. In contrast, soiling polystyrene with quartz particles suspended in a BSA solution instead of water did not change markedly the cleanability, while the contact angle was much lower and the aggregates of soiling particles were more flat. These observations are explained by the major role of capillary forces developed upon drying, which influence the closeness of the contact between the soiling particles and the substrate and, thereby, the adherence of particles. The capillary forces are proportional to the liquid surface tension and depend in a more complex way on contact angles of the particles and of the substrate. The dependence of cleanability on capillary forces, and in particular on the liquid surface tension, is predominant as compared with its dependence on the size and shape of the soiling aggregates, which influence the efficiency of shear forces exerted by the flowing water upon cleaning.

The almond tree (Prunus dulcis) is a drought tolerant crop. Being a rustic plant, almond tree can grow in varied climates (1) and frequently used in dryland farming. The ability of almond trees to tolerate summer heat and winter cold and to endure high water deficits are prove of its efficiency in valorization of semi-arid areas. For all these reasons, a new project of almond plantation (Profao) is implemented for valorization of marginal sols in eastern region of Morocco with the aim of helping population to have a stake in their rural economies. In this region, self-consumption constitute the important part of the almond production, which has high costs and lower profitability. Almonds are a good source of vegetable oil, protein and mineral bio elements. Many information on almond constituents and almond crops are available in Europe and USA (2), few references occur in the bibliography concerning almond crop in Morocco but there is no data on physicochemical characterization of almond and derivatives products. Therefore, in this preliminary study, sweet almond oils of four varieties (Feragnès, Ferraduel, Marcona and Fournat) were extracted mechanically and by soxhlet. Results showed that yield of oil from almonds crushed mechanically varies between 46 and 60 % of the dry mass and comparable profiles of fatty acid (FA) and triglycerides for the analyzed almond oils. The two main FA of those almond oils are unsaturated oleic acid (56-74%) and linoleic acid (19-25%); followed by Palmitic acid (2.5-8%), Palmitoleic and stearic acids, that range between 0.2-2.8% and finally minor FA (Linolenic & Arachidic acids) with quantities less than 0.1%.

This work reports on the influence of -lactoglobulin (β-LGB) and of its denaturation on the adherence of quartz particles, taken as a model of particulate soil, on stainless steel AISI 304 with mirror finish. The substrate was soiled with quartz suspensions in water or in β-LGB solutions as such or previously heated at 75°C, and dried at room temperature or in an oven at 75°C. Cleanability was evaluated after exposure to water in a radial flow chamber. Auxiliary characterizations were the surface tension and protein concentration of the solution, surface analysis of the substrate by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and contact angle measurements. The contact of stainless steel with -LGB led to adsorption of the protein, which dominated the composition of the organic layer with respect to contaminants initially present, and was not markedly desorbed upon rinsing. The presence of β-LGB at the quartz particle/substrate interface slightly increased the adherence, which was further increased when the protein was denatured. On the other hand, denaturation of -LGB enhanced its surfactant effect at the water/air interface. Comparison with systems investigated before suggests that the influence of protein via droplet spreading and soiling particles aggregation may be of minor importance compared to direct effects on the substrate/quartz interface. Stainless steel does not behave as a hydrophilic substrate owing to its surface contamination with organic compounds. It appears suitable to examine the influence of the initial surface state of stainless steel on its behavior regarding soiling and cleaning. [less ▲]

The purpose of this study was to optimize the kefir grains biomass production, using milk as culture media. The kefir grains were cultured at different changed conditions to evaluate their effects. Results showed that optimal culture conditions were using the organic skim milk, incubated at 25°C for 24 hours with a rotation rate of 125 rpm. According to results, the growth rate was 38.9 g/L for 24 h, at 25°C using the organic milk - OSM, 36.87 g/L during 24 hours, optimal time for propagation process gave 37.93 g/L kefir grains biomass when the effect of temperature level was tested. The homogenization of medium with shaker rotating induced a greater growth rate, it was obtained 38.9 g/L for 24 h, at 25°C using rotation rate at 125 rpm. The growing medium (conventional milk) supplemented with different minerals and vitamins may lead to improve the growth conditions of kefir grains biomass. The optimization of the growth environment is very important for achieving the maximum production of kefir grains biomass, substrate necessary to obtain the polysaccharide kefiran. [less ▲]

Chemical composition of the essential oils of Cistus libanotis from eastern Morocco (Tafoughalt and Jerrada) extracted from different season was analyzed by GC-MS and GC-FID. The hydro-distilled essential oil content ranged from 0, 27 % to 0, 46%, the maximum amounts were observed in summer while minimum in winter for Tafoughalt, whereas the oil obtained from Jerrada had the highest yield (0, 61 %). The essential oils consisted of terpineol-4 as the most abundant component (18, 70 % - 24, 91 %), followed by γ-terpinene (9, 82 % - 12, 25 %), camphene (5, 86 % - 13, 58 %), sabinene (7, 86 % - 9, 89 %) and α-thujene (6, 92 % - 10, 12 %). Samples collected in all seasons were found to be richer in monoterpenes hydrocarbons (52, 68 % - 57, 59 %). None sesquiterpene hydrocarbons found in the oils from summer and autumn. Drying period of leaves at normal air laboratory and distillation time also affect the oil content and composition. There was variation in terpineol-4 content from 22, 23 % (4th day of drying) to 19, 27 % (29th day of drying), and from 35, 60 % (1 hour of distillation) to 24, 17 % (4 hours of distillation). It can be concluded that the harvesting season, period of drying and the time of distillation had an effect on the yield of essential oil and chemical composition of various compounds. [less ▲]

Providing a quick, reliable and cheap indication of the expected cheese yield for a milk sample by avoiding (empirical or theoretical) formulas based on previously determined milk constituents would be an economically valuable tool useful for farmers and the dairy industry. In order to study the genetic variability of cheese yield on a large scale, mid-infrared (MIR) chemometric methods were used to predict fresh or dry Individual Laboratory Cheese Yield (RdFF and RdFS, respectively). RdFF and RdFS were determined on a total of 258 milks samples also analyzed by a MIR spectrometer. Equations to predict RdFF and RdFS from milk MIR spectra were developed using partial least square regression (PLS) after first derivative pre-traitment applied to the spectra. The cross-validation coefficients of determination (R²cv) of the two equations were equal to 0.81 for the prediction of RdFF and 0.82 for the prediction RdFS. The ratios of performance to deviation (RPD) of the two equations were both equal to 2.3. Therefore, these results suggest a practical utility of these two equations, i.e. for genetic research. Both equations were applied on the spectral database generated during the Walloon routine milk recording. The variances components were estimated using univariate random regressions animal test-day model. The dataset included 51 537 predicted records from 7 870 Holstein first-parity cows. Estimated daily heritabilities ranged from 0.31 (at 5th day in milk (DIM)) to 0.59 (at 279th DIM) for RdFF and from 0.31 (at 5th DIM) to 0.57 (at 299th DIM) for RdFS. Those moderate to high daily heritabilities indicated potential of selection for both traits. [less ▲]
