TL;DR: The mechanism is different for fluorine and chlorine atoms. Fluorine atoms react and forms stable HF molecules while chlorine atoms turns into a radical by the action of UV which helps in the destruction of ozone. Long answer: Ozone depleting substance(ODS) are gases that take part in ozone depletion process. Most of the ODS are primarily ...


Here is a depiction of how 'chlorine' destroys ozone per an education source: CFC molecules are made up of chlorine, fluorine and carbon atoms and are extremely stable. This extreme stability allows CFC's to slowly make their way into the stratosphere (most molecules decompose before they can cross into the stratosphere from the troposphere). This prolonged ...


I assume the excised-off His-tag as well as the enterokinase protease are removed from the system. I would use the catalytic efficiency, i.e. the ratio of kcat/KM as the metric to compare the results of two conditions.


You expect using zeolite might selectively allow n-propanol over isopropanol into the cage of zeolite. While it may be true, 0.38 nm window kind of zeolites might have activity on the external surface as well. For example, there are several research articles available where sugars like glucose and fructose, which are quite big compared to n-propanol or ...
