The phenomenon of flocculation in Azospirillum brasilense (MTCC-125) was studied under different combinations of carbon and nitrogen sources. Fructose and Potassium nitrate at a pH of 6.4 in the cultural medium favour a higher bio-floc production. The biofloc was studied for root adhesion and its survival efficiency in the rhizoplane and rhizosphere of(More)
We present experimental results for the thermal conductivity kappa of the pseudo-two-leg ladder material CaCu2O3. The strong buckling of the ladder rungs renders this material a good approximation to a S=1/2 Heisenberg chain. Despite a strong suppression of the thermal conductivity of this material in all crystal directions due to inherent disorder, we find(More)
Hydroxyapatite nanoparticles have been synthesized using EDTA as organic modifier by a simple microwave irradiation method and its application for the selective determination of uric acid (UA) has been demonstrated. Electrochemical behavior of uric acid at HA nanoparticle modified glassy carbon electrode (E-HA/GCE) has been investigated by electrochemical(More)
Ni doped SnO(2) nanoparticles (0-5 wt%) have been prepared by a simple microwave irradiation (2.45 GHz) method. Powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) studies confirmed the formation of rutile structure with space group (P(42)/mnm) and nanocrystalline nature of the products with spherical morphology. Direct(More)
We report the fabrication and testing of a riboflavin (RF) biosensor based on the use of Cr doped SnO2 nanoparticles. The Cr-SnO2 nanoparticles with chromium concentration from 0 to 5 wt% were synthesised by a microwave irradiation method. Magnetic studies revealed that only 3 wt% Cr doped nano-SnO2 has ferromagnetic behaviour at room temperature. This(More)
Nanocrystalline tungsten oxides (WO(3-δ)) are currently receiving a lot of attention because of their interesting electrical, magnetic, optical and mechanical properties. In this report, we present the synthesis of PEG assisted tungsten oxide (WO(3)) nanoparticles by simple household microwave irradiation (2.45 GHz) method. The samples were characterized(More)
The application effect of different formulations of Pseudomonas fluorescens siderophore viz., control, Pseudomonas fluorescens cells alone, Pseudomonas fluorescens + Fe + siderophore complex, Siderophore alone, Fe + siderophore complex alone and challenge inoculation of Pyricularia oryzae on the enhancement of growth and yield parameters and ISR mediated(More)
Single crystals of the organic nonlinear material gamma-glycine have been grown in the presence of phosphoric acid by slow-evaporation method. The crystal structure is confirmed by X-ray powder diffraction method. The thermal stability and decomposition of the sample have been studied by thermal analysis. The result shows that the transition temperature,(More)
A novel folic acid biosensor has been fabricated using Cu doped SnO2 nanoparticles (NPs) synthesized by a simple microwave irradiation method. Powder XRD and TEM studies confirmed that both the pure and Cu doped SnO2 (Cu: 0, 10, 20wt%) crystallized in tetragonal rutile-type structure with spherical morphology. The average crystallite size of pure SnO2 was(More)
