Botryococcus braunii is a green colonial fresh water microalga and it is recognized as one of the renewable resources for production of liquid hydrocarbons. CFTRI-Bb-1 and CFTRI-Bb-2 have been reported for the first time and their performance with regard to growth and biochemical profile is presented here. The present study focused on effect of carbon(More)
The present study focused on cultivation, seasonal variation in growth, hydrocarbon production, fatty acids profiles of Botryococcus braunii (LB-572 and N-836) in raceway & circular ponds under outdoor conditions. After 18days of cultivation the biomass yield and hydrocarbon contents were increased in both raceway and circular ponds. The fat content was(More)
Of the total carotenoids in respective algal samples, beta-carotene in Spirulina platensis was 69.5%, astaxanthin and its esters in Haematococcus pluvialis was 81.38%, and lutein in Botryococcus braunii was 74.6%. The carotenoids were characterized by mass spectrometry. A time-course study of carotenoids in rats after administration of microalgal biomass(More)
ZnO-based dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) have been fabricated using hydrothermally synthesized ZnO nanoparticles by spray deposition. The effect of self-assembled nanostructures in ZnO photoelectrodes, due to the electric field during spray deposition, has been studied. Thickness of the photoelectrode is found to play a role on the cell performance, the(More)
