Effect of the Synthesis Method, Complexing Agent and Solvent on the Physicochemical Properties of LaNiO3 Nanopowders

LaNiO3 nanopowders are synthesized by sol–gel and sol-gel combustion methods using citric acid, ascorbic acid and sucrose as chelating agents, and ethanol and water as solvents. The precursor thermal decomposition towards the final solid was analyzed by X-ray diffraction, differential thermal analysis and thermogravimetric techniques which were also used to provide the adequate temperature of calcination (800°C) for achievement of the final perovskite. After calcination, the nanocomposites were characterized by powder size distribution, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and X-ray diffrac..read more

The Removal of Hydrogen Sulfide by Phosphate Ore Slurry

In the present study, the reaction process of H2S removal by calcined phosphate ore slurry was investigated by XRD and kinetics analysis. It was found that the absorption amount of H2S was 69.47 mg in 200 min, and 70.09% of the absorption caused by calcium oxide, indicating that the reaction was mainly the action of calcium oxide. Furthermore, it is showed that Fe2O3 played an important role in the removal process. Fe(III) can be dissolved form the phosphate ore, and became an efficiently catalytic oxidant. H2S can be catalytically oxidized by Fe(III)/Fe(II) system. It was indicated that about..read more

Effect of Calcination Temperature on the Photocatalytic H2 Evolution of Bronze Phase Monoclinic TiO2(B) Nanosheets

In this work, we have successfully fabricated bronze phase monoclinic TiO2 (B) nanosheets from TiCl3 under hydrothermal conditions. The fabricated samples were calcined at different annealing temperature (100, 200, 300, 400 and 500 oC) to select optimum temperature under UV light irradiation for the efficient photocatalytic water splitting. Different techniques were used for the characterization of fabricated photocatalysts. Interestingly, the sample calcined at 400 oC delivered optimum H2 evolution from water which is attributed to the relatively high surface area and effective charge separat..read more

Interrelation of Zinc and Cadmium in the Biological Samples of Indoor and Outdoor Workers of Five Zonal Areas of Coal Mining Field

Coal mining is still one of the most tough, nasty, and dangerous jobs in the world, with more fatalities than any other. The present study assessed zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd) in scalp hair and blood samples of 270 coal mining field employees, working in Hyderabad, Pakistan, aged 18-55 years. The scalp hair and blood samples of age-matched healthy volunteers (n= 70) were examined for chosen elements for a comparison analysis. For understudied metals, environmental samples (soil, water, and coal) from coal mining fields and nonindustrial areas were investigated. The Zn levels in the scalp hair a..read more

MOFs Modified Paper-Based Materials: Preparation and Application to EtOH Fluorescence Response

Based on the solvothermal method, two new MOFs with 3-(1-Oxo-1H-2,3-dihydroisoindol-2-yl)benzoic acid as the organic ligand, Zn-HBPA and Zn-bpy-HBPA were synthesized. The structure of MOFs was characterized by 1H-NMR, XRD, FT-IR and SEM. A series of modified cellulose paper-based functional materials with different spraying times were prepared by flame spraying method, and the fluorescence property of MOFs modified cellulose paper to EtOH small molecules was investigated by fluorescence spectrometer. The results of FT-IR and SEM showed that the flame spraying method could effectively improve t..read more

Development and Validation of Analytical Method for the Determination of Cefovecin Sodium in African lions (Panthera leo) Plasma by HPLC: FDA Bioanalytical Assay Guidance

The aim of this study was to develop and validate a simple high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method for the determination of cefovecin sodium in small volume of lion’s plasma. Analytical separation was obtained in less than 5 minutes (4.29-4.42 min) using a C-18 column with UV detection at λmax 254nm. The extraction of cefovecin sodium was carried out in methanol and acetonitrile. The mobile phase was composed of water: acetonitrile: methanol in a ratio of 60:20:20 at pH 3.1. The method was validated according to FDA Bioanalytical assay guidance. The limit of detection of cefovecin..read more

Antinociceptive Activity of Syzygium Aromaticum Linn. Flower Buds (Clove) Extract and its Fractions

Syzygium aromaticum (Myrtaceae) flower buds (clove) are traditionally known to possess antimicrobial, antiprotozoal, antiviral and other activities, including the antinociceptive action. Scientific evidence also suggests the antileishmanial, antiherpetic and anti-HIV activities of the buds. This paper reports the antinociceptive activity of S. aromaticum flower buds, reinforcing its use in decreasing the pain. The present study was designed to confirm the analgesic activity of S. aromaticum extract and seven of its fractions to reveal the common belief in its painkilling effects. We chose two..read more
