  • Abstract

    We present a theoretical study of spiroconjugated TTFs 1-4 employing DFT/B3LYP method with 6-31G (d,p) basis set. A molecular electrostatic potential map (MEP), global and local reactivity descriptors have been computed to predict reactivity and reactive sites on the molecules. In addition, a detailed molecular picture and intermolecular interactions arising from hyperconjugative interactions and charge delocalization of the molecules were analyzed using natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis. The frontier molecular orbital analysis is used to determine the charge transfer within the molecules. The NLO properties were evaluated by the determination of first hyperpolarizabilities of the title compounds.

[DOI: 10.24214/jcbps.A.8.3.32543]

  • Abstract

    Punica Granatum Extract (PGE) is a corrosion inhibitor used for Al alloy in 1.0 M HCl solution utilizing weight loss (WL), Tafel polarization (PP), electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and electrochemical frequency modulation (EFM) techniques. A scanning electron microscope (SEM) has utilized to determine the surface morphology for Al. The temperature influence on corrosion performance with the appending of several doses was considered in the range of 25-45 ºC by WL. PP diagrams illustrate that PGE is a mixed inhibitor. The protection efficiency (IE), increased by increasing PGE concentration and with increasing temperature of solution. Temkin’s adsorption isotherm was found to be the suitable isotherm to express adsorption of the extract on surface of Al. The activation and adsorption parameters had measured and discussed. Chemical and electrochemical techniques were utilized to get results which were found to be in good agreement.

[DOI: 10.24214/jcbps.A.8.3.36176]

  • Abstract

    In this study, curing kinetic of phenol novalac epoxy resin with and without presence of silica nanoparticles (SN) was evaluated. In this case, the dynamic curing process was studied by usage of diffrential scanning calorimetry (DSC) with and without addition of silica nanoparticles in 4 heating rates, 2, 5, 10 and 15°C/min. Despite of that, from DSC analysis, the reaction exotherm was processed in order to obtain the reaction kinetic data such as the degree of reaction and the rate of reaction at different times and temperatures. Besides, a suitable model was proposed to explain the reaction kinetic data obtained from experimental section. Moreover, unknown parameters of this model were determined by a nonlinear regression analysis and then it was adapted by experimental data obtained from DSC analysis. Furthermore, the activation energy for sample containing ML-506/4 wt% NS was increased with respect to the neat resin which is due to the inhibitor effect of silica nanoparticles in the cure reaction. Moreover, transmission electron microscopy (TEM) was used in order to investigate the dispersion quality of silica nanoparticles within the mixture.

[DOI: 10.24214/jcbps.A.8.3.37791]

  • Abstract

    The inhibiting influence of ferula hermonis (FH) towards the corrosion performance of stainless steel 430 (SS430) in 2.0 M HCl was planned utilizing mass reduction (MR), potentiodynamic polarization (PP), AC impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and electrochemical frequency modulation (EFM) tests. The hindrance efficiency of the extract improved with rising the dose of extract and decreases with temperature rising. The parameters obtained from thermodynamic due to corrosion and adsorption procedures have measured and debated. The adsorption of (FH) on the SS 430 surface in HCl has got to follow Langmuir isotherm. PP showed that (FH) extract plays as a mixed kind inhibitor. (EIS) data correlated with potentiodynamic polarization results. The surface tests of protected SS 430 were examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM), atomic force microscopy (AFM), and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR).

  • Abstract

    Chitosan and its derivatives possess valuable properties for its use as a sorbent for the removal of heavy metals from aqueous solution. In the present study, the thermodynamics of Cu2+, Pb2+ and Cd2+ sorption onto low molecular weight chitosan (CS8) using isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) were investigated. Based on the ITC data, the stoichiometry data were 0.36±0.023, 0.813±0.015 and 0.029±0.006 for Cu2+, Pb2+ and Cd2+, respectively. The binding association constant (Ka) varied from (1.74±0.333) ×104M-1 to (17.3±18.9) ×104M-1. Also, all binding reactions to low molecular weight chitosan (CS8) were enthalpically favored and the interaction between the sorbent and the metal ions were enthalpically not driven at 25 °C. Furthermore, free energy of reaction values were all determined to be negative indicating spontaneous reactions. In conclusion, the ITC instrument was successfully used to measure directly the stoichiometry (N), binding association constant (Ka), the enthalpy change (ΔH) and the entropy change (ΔS).

  • Abstract

    Famotidine, a histamine H2 receptor antagonist is absorbed only in the initial part of gastro intestinal (GI) tract and has less bioavailability. Hence the drug was formulated as gastro-retentive drug delivery systems in the form of Floting microspheres to prolong its residence time in the stomach and improve its absorption. Floating microspheres of famotidine was prepared by emulsion solvent evaporation method. To prepare and evaluate floating microspheres consisting of (i) Cellulose acetate pthelet (CAP) as porous carrier; (ii) famotidine and (iii) hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) and ethylcellulose (EC) as polymers. The floating microspheres were evaluated for particle size, micromeritic properties, percent drug content, in vitro floating behaviour, and in vitro drug release. The % yield of formulations (FM1 to FM9) was found to be in the range of 79.51 ± 3.71 to 93.48 ± 0.94 %. Percentage drug content of floating microspheres formulations (FM1 to FM9) was found in the range of 77.25 ± 0.36 to 86.14 ± 2.04 %. In Vitro Buoyancy percentage of the microspheres was found to be 97.5 ± 1.53 %. At pH 1.2, the best formulation FM4 showed maximum drug release (99.36 ± 1.14 %) at the end of 12 hr. The SEM photographs of formulation FM4 showed that the fabricated microspheres were spherical with a smooth surface and exhibited a range of sizes within each batch. The results suggested that CAP is a useful carrier for the development of floating and sustained release preparations. The results suggested that CAP is a useful carrier for the development of floating and sustained release preparations.
