Fines Content and Cohesion of Lateritic Soils: Conceptual Models

Laterite has been widely defined  as  a highly weathered material, rich  in  secondary oxides  of iron, aluminium, or both. It is void or nearly void of basic primary silicates, but it may contain large amounts of quartz and kaolinite. A distinctive feature of laterite and lateritic soils is the higher proportion of sesquioxides of iron…

Adsorptive Interactions of Natural Antifungals with Metal Ferrocyanides and its Pharmaceutical Potential

The study aimed to investigate the adsorptive interactions of metal hexacyanoferrates (II) and ethanol and  acetone  extracts  of  natural  antifungals.  Nickel,  manganese  and  copper  hexacyanoferrates (II) were synthesized and characterized by elemental and spectral studies. Each metal hexacyanoferrate (II) was combined with two natural antifungals: coconut (Cocos nucifera)  and  ochro (Abelmoschusesculentus)  leaf  extract.  The  antifungal …
