The valine functionalized multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTS) were prepared and characterized by using XRD, UV-Vis, FT-IR, EPR, SEM, and EDX, spectroscopic techniques. The enhanced XRD peak (002) intensity was observed for valine functionalized MWCNTs compared with oxidized MWCNTs, which is likely due to sample purification by acid washing. UV-Vis study(More)
Infrared and laser Raman spectral investigations of [Ni(II)(dppe)Cl2] and [Co(III)(dppe)2Cl2]PF6 have been made to determine the conformation and nature of bonding in Ni(II) and Co(III) dppe complexes. The stereochemistry of the two forms of these complexes has been confirmed. The role of steric interferences in cis-Planar [Ni(II)(dppe)Cl2] complex is(More)
This study investigates the structural and optical properties in the cribellate silk of the sheet web spider Stegodyphus sarasinorum Karsch (Eresidae) and the combined dragline, viscid silk of the orb-web spiders Argiope pulchella Thorell (Araneidae) and Nephila pilipes Fabricius (Nephilidae). X-ray diffraction (XRD), Fourier transform infra-red (FTIR),(More)
Infrared and laser Raman spectra of [Ni(II)(diars)2X]X, (X=Cl, Br and I) have been used as probes to determine the structures of chelated diarsine molecules. It has been observed that the effects of metal chelation and coordination geometry give rise to frequency shifts in these complexes. The variation in vibrational spectroscopic features indicates(More)
Electron spin resonance (ESR) studies were carried out for 14N-labeled deuterated 3-methoxy-carbonyl-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-pyrrolidine-1-oxyl (MC-PROXYL) and 3-carboxy-2,2,5,5-tetramethyl-1-pyrrolidin-1-oxyl (carboxy-PROXYL) in pure water and various concentrations of liposomal solutions by using 300 MHz ESR spectrometer. The ESR parameters such as the line(More)
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) studies have been carried out on Cu(II) doped Cd(C5H5NO)6(BF4)2 in single crystal and powder forms at 300 K. Angular variation of hyperfine structure lines shows the presence of two magnetic sites, indicating possible twinning in the Cd lattice. From the mean values of two sites, the angular variation plot is fitted to(More)
Single crystal electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) of Cu(C5H5NO)6(BF4)2 is studied at 300 K. The spin Hamiltonian parameters obtained at 300 K are A11 = -149.8, A22 = -50.7 and A33 = -37.7 (all in units of 10(-4) cm(-1)), g11 = 2.3452, g22 = 2.0679 and g33 = 2.0695. Angular variation of hyperfine structure lines shows the presence of a single magnetic(More)
