Oxygen reduction and water oxidation are two key processes in fuel cell applications. The oxidation of water to dioxygen is a 4 H(+)/4 e(-) process, while oxygen can be fully reduced to water by a 4 e(-)/4 H(+) process or partially reduced by fewer electrons to reactive oxygen species such as H2O2 and O2(-). We demonstrate that a novel manganese corrole(More)
A study was conducted to assess the incidence and economics of subclinical form of bovine mastitis in Central Region of India. Daily milk records of 187 animals during three seasons were collected and subjected to analysis. The economic loss due to reduction in yield, clinical expenses, and additional resources used were quantified and aggregated. The(More)
The feasibility of a hydrogen-based economy relies very much on the availability of catalysts for the hydrogen evolution reaction (HER) that are not based on Pt or other noble elements. Significant breakthroughs have been achieved with certain first row transition metal complexes in terms of low overpotentials and large turnover rates, but the majority of(More)
The instability of [Fe-Fe]-hydrogenase and its synthetic models under aerobic conditions is an inherent challenge in their development as practical H2 producing electrodes. The electrochemical oxygen reduction reaction of a series of synthetic model complexes of the [Fe-Fe] hydrogenase is investigated, and a dominant role of the bridgehead nitrogen in(More)
Total change in production and productivity are the two important dimensions of benefits of watershed development programmes along with the conservation of land and water resources. To segregate out the impact of various watershed-based interventions on crop productivity, a study was carried out in Bundelkhand region of Madhya Pradesh state of India. Data(More)
Obtaining abundant pure hydrogen by reduction of water has an important implication in the development of clean and renewable energy. Hence research focused on the development of non-noble metal based facile and energy efficient catalysts for proton reduction is on the rise. However, for practical utilization, it is necessary that these complexes function(More)
