Catalytic wet hydrogen peroxide oxidation of acid dye has been explored in this study. Manganese(III) complex of N,N'-ethylene bis(salicylidene-aminato) (salenH(2)) has been encapsulated in super cages of zeolite-Y by flexible ligand method. The catalyst has been characterized by FT-IR, XRD, TG/DTA and nitrogen adsorption studies. The effects of various(More)
Two mixed ligand complexes of ruthenium(ii) [Ru(bzimpy)(bpy)(OH(2))](2+) (1) and [Ru(bzimpy)(phen)(OH(2))](2+) (2) have been synthesized and characterized by FAB mass, (1)H NMR, cyclic voltammetry and spectroelectrochemical measurements. Controlled potential electrolysis of these complexes results in the conversion of ruthenium(ii) to ruthenium(iii) at 0.6(More)
The binding of Schiff base complexes of chromium(III) of the type [Cr(salen)(H(2)O)(2)](+) and [Cr(salprn)(H(2)O)(2)](+), where salen denotes 1,2-bis(salicylideneamino)ethane and salprn denotes 1,3-bis(salicylideneamino)propane to calf thymus DNA has been investigated by absorption, emission, circular dichroism, melting temperature and viscosity(More)
Ever since the ability of laccase to oxidize non-phenolic lignin models was described, the oxidative degradation reactions catalyzed by laccase have been widely studied for paper pulp production or detoxification of aromatic pollutants. The viability of developing eco-friendly, laccase aided industrial processes has been explored. Here, we report the(More)
Formulation of biodegradable collagen-poly-ε-caprolactone (PCL) based biomaterials for the sustained release of insulin is the main objective of the present work. PCL has been employed to modulate the physico-chemical behavior of collagen to control the drug release. Designed formulations were employed to statistically optimize insulin release parameter(More)
The present study investigates the antimicrobial activity of oxidized schizophyllan (scleraldehyde) against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria by diffusion and tube dilution analysis. Schizophyllan is a natural polysaccharide produced by fungi of the genus Schizophyllum. Periodate oxidation specifically cleaves the vicinal glycols in scleraldehyde to(More)
The occupational hazards and respiratory problems of workers associated with the chromium related industries like mining, electroplating and tanning have received much focus. Although the cytotoxic and mutagenic effects of common chromium(VI) compounds are now established, to the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of apoptosis (programmed cell(More)
Interactions of [Cr(salprn)(H(2)O)(2)]ClO(4) with nucleosides and dinucleotides were studied using electrospray ionization mass spectrometry. The nucleosides 2'-deoxycytidine, thymidine, 2'-deoxyadenosine, 2'-deoxyguanosine, cytidine, adenosine and guanosine form 1 : 1 and 2 : 1 adducts with [Cr(salprn)](+), whereas the dinucleotides CpG, GpC, ApT, TpA and(More)
Global environmental regulations are changing the leather-processing industry. Pre-tanning and tanning processes contribute 80-90% of the total pollution in the industry and generate noxious gases, such as hydrogen sulfide, as well as solid wastes, such as lime and chrome sludge. The use of enzyme-based products is currently being explored for many areas of(More)
Present study deals with the evaluation of biosorptive removal of cadmium by red macro alga Hypnea valentiae. Experiments have been carried out to find the effect of various parameters such as initial cadmium concentration, experimental pH and temperature on the biosorption potential of H. valentiae. Optimum pH for biosorption of cadmium was found to be(More)
