Pramod Kumar Awasthi, Sonu Sankhla and Dipti Mathur

  • Abstract

    Fluorine which is chemically most electronegative element is present in combined state as fluoride due to high chemical reactivity. Fluoride in minute quantity is essential component for normal mineralization of bones and formation of dental enamel but excess consumption causes to dental and skeletal fluorosis. Globally 32% of total world is suffering from fluorosis. Drinking water having fluoride more than 1.5 mg/L due to natural and anthropogenic activities is imposing serious threat to human health so the solution of fluoride contamination isurgently required. There are many techniques for removal of fluoride from water but most of them are expensive and not approachable to common people. Taking this in consideration there is need to introduce conventional method like fluoride adsorption which is cost effective and viable method in comparison to reverse osmosis and ion exchange method. This review discuss the role of some medicinal plants like Ocimum species, Moringaolifera, Leptadeniapyrotechnica, Vetiverzizanoids, Acacia catechu, Tinosporacordifolia and Tamarind as a biosorbent of fluoride from contaminated water.

Kirti Rani

  • Abstract

    Amylase is used very significantly in textile, leather, paper and detergent industries for fabric washing, desiring of fabrics and starch processing due to having starch degrading property. In previous studies, amylase immobilization was done on to various biocompatible supports by adopting various methods to enhance its thermal and storage stability. Its immobilization onto albumin matrices such as bovine serum albumin (BSA) was observed to be very significant and low-cost enzyme Nano technique to prepare its non-toxic and low-cost amylase loaded BSA nanoparticles (BSANPs). In the proposed washing practice, coconut oil driven Cicer aritenium amylase loaded emulsified bovine serum albumin nanoparticles (BSANPs) were used and made bio-active with standardized 35U of alkaline protease for their biodegradation to allow the controlled release loaded amylase in reaction solution. Then, these bio-active amylase loaded BSANPs were used as nano-wool shampoo additives with chosen wool shampoo named, “Stergene Gentle Care” to test the stain removal efficacy from stained woolen fabric without affecting the delicacy and softness of the woolen fabric. In this washing study, chosen stains were comprised of daily routine stains of boot polish and hair color dye cream named, Cherry Blossom Shoe Polish Black and Garnier Nutrisse Nourishing color cream Black respectively. Sometimes, these routine stains are very tough to remove from the woolen/cashmere/merino/ mohair fabrics or required couple of pre-washing practices. So, keeping thisdomestic or industrial washing issue, these stains are selected very thoughtfully. And, from this washing study, effective washing findings were carried out to wash off the selected stains form woolen fabric when washed with chosen wool shampoo along with bio-active prepared coconut oil driven amylase loaded BSANPs solution as compared their washing with chosen wool shampoo alone.

Vivian Azucena-Topor

  • Abstract

    Cassava root samples were arbitrarily chosen from 14 cassava farms in 10 municipalities and 6 public markets around Iloilo, Philippines. Samples collected are of two major varieties: those with yellow roots, yellow green petiole and purple apical leaves identified as belonging to either the Golden Yellow or Lakan I variety and those with white roots, red petiole and green apical leaves belonging to the Native or Balinghoy variety. Pearson correlation revealed a significant positive linear relationship between the protein content and cyanide content in roots of Golden Yellow/Lakan I variety; while no evidence of linear relationship was observed between the cyanide and protein content in leaves; between protein content in roots and cyanide content in leaves; and also between the cyanide content in the roots and protein content in leaves. For the Native/Balinghoy variety, a significant positive linear relationship (at 0.05 level) between the cyanide content and protein content in leaves was observed between the cyanide content and protein content in roots and between the cyanide content in leaves and protein content in roots. There is no sufficient evidence to conclude that cyanide content in roots and protein content in leaves are linearly related. A curvilinear relationship between cyanide content in roots nd protein content in leaves of the Golden Yellow/Lakan I and the Native/Balinghoy varieties was observed. The relationship is positive linear for values below 40 ppm and is negative linear above it.

  • Abstract

    Transition metal complex of Cu(II) synthesized from1-phenyl-2,3-dimethyl-4-aminopyrazole-5-one (4-AAP) and benzoate ion (Benz). Synthesized complex was characterized from their elemental analysis, metal estimation, magnetic moment, molar conductance, IR, UV-Visible and EPR spectral studies. The analytical and spectral data confirmed by the composition of complex. The magnetic moment, UV-Visible, EPR spectral data of the complex suggest a tetragonally distorted octahedral geometry around Cu(II) ion. The non-electrolytic nature (1:0 type) and entry of the ligands into the coordination sphere, functional groups present in the complex were confirmed by the molar conductance and IR spectra. The DNA binding nature of Cu(II) complex with calf thymus DNA(CT-DNA method) was studied by UV-Visible absorption spectral method at 10 different concentrations. The complex shows good DNA Binding activity.

Ibrahim Mbouombouo Ndassa, Issofa Patouossa, Abel Idrice Adjieufack, François Volatron and Bernard Silvi

  • Abstract

    The Electron Localization Function (ELF) analysis has been applied on Wheland intermediates (σ complexes) obtained from the chlorination reactions of aniline catalyzed by Aluminium Chloride. This study permits us to evaluate the electronic population on Wheland intermediates obtained from this reaction in order to explain and understand the orientation of the aromatic substitution of this substituted benzene. The results obtained explain the traditional orientation of these reactions which suggested that the orientation of the second substituent in ortho and para positions in the case of aniline depend on the stability of the intermediates Wheland complexes σ1 or σ2.

The first hyperpolarizability (β0) has been computed to evaluate the non–linear optical (NLO) response of the investigated molecule and found to be 76.95 x 10-30 esu. The preliminary bioassay suggested that the compound (3) exhibits relatively good antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus.
