Investigation of Silver-Silica Nanocomposites for Advanced Applications

Due to their advanced applications, nanocomposites (NC) comprising silver particles distributed on a silica matrix have recently attracted interest. Nanotechnology permits the advancement and creation of composite materials based on silver. A rudimentary method for clarifying our scientific understanding of the Ag / SiO2 NCs is physical as well as chemical characterization in the field…

Controlled Chemical Synthesis Methods of Ag Nanoparticles

Nanotechnology is the study of tiny-scale manipulation of matter or particles. Atoms and molecules behave differently in the nano-size range. Nanotechnology helps to synthesise new nanosized materials in the processing, design, and application of materials on the atomic and molecular scale. But the growth mechanism depends on the size, physical , and chemical properties of…

Determination of Chlorogenic Acid and Sesquiterpene Lactone Content in Root, Flour and Roasted Grains of Industrial Chicory

The secondary metabolites of industrial chicory sesquiterpene lactones (STL) and chlorogenic acids (CGA) indicate potential nutritional and organoleptic added value for this crop. They are soluble major secondary metabolites that accumulate in chicory, particularly in Asteraceae. Their quantification was defined here in chicory root and its dried (flour) and roasted (grain) types, as a quality…

Studies on Micropropagation of an Exotic Ornamental Plant, Calathea crotalifera, for Production of High Quality Plantlets

In two selected varieties of exotic ornamental plants, Calathea crotalifera, an effective protocol was developed for micropropagation. The effects of various sterilisation techniques, type of explant, and the combination and concentration of plant growth regulators on the induction of shoots were investigated. When treated with a combination of 30 percent (v / v) NaOCl, 70…

Reports of the Seroepidemiologic Survey for Human Sparganosis in Mto wa Mbu Division, Monduli District, Tanzania

Sparganum is a pseudophyllidean tapeworm of the genus Spirometra plerocercoid. Northern Tanzania has been confirmed to have human sparganosis. In order to detect anti-sparganum specific IgG antibodies in the serum of normal inhabitants of Mto wa Mbu, Monduli District, Tanzania, a seroepidemiologic survey was performed. Sera was screened for antisparganum antibodies using the Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent…

Extraction of Fibres from Ashoka (Polyalthia longifolia) for Development of Yarns from PlantWaste Material

The present study focused on the development of blended yarns made from pruned ashoka plant-waste material using ashoka bast fibres, the usefulness of which was hardly explored for the purpose. Symmetrical Ashoka (P. longifolia), a perennial herb, exhibits  Pyramidal development of pendulous willowy branches. Via environmental degradation and ultimately, public health, immoral and unthoughtful handling…
