Ultrasonic Investigation of Aqueous L-Alanine

Authors(3) :-A. T. Shende, N.D. Chinchkhede, V. A. Tabhane

Ultrasonic are mechanical waves finds many applications in recent research. The ultrasonic velocity (u), density (ρ), and viscosity (η) of a given material can be used to determine various significant thermo acoustical parameters which can be used for various studies. This paper is deal with acoustical investigation of L-Alanine in water solution by Pulse Echo Overlap (PEO) technique and reporting the value adiabatic (βa) and isothermal compressibility (βi) of L-Alanine at different molar concentrations (0.0 to 0.01M) and temperature (283.15K to 323.15K). These values of compressibility may be use for modeling of protein synthesis using Molecular Dynamic Simulation.
