2-{[1-(3,4-Dihydroxyphenyl)methylidene]amino}benzoic acid (DMABA) was loaded on Amberlite XAD-16 (AXAD-16) via azo linker and the resulting resin AXAD-16-DMABA explored for enrichment of Zn(II), Mn(II), Ni(II), Pb(II), Cd(II), Cu(II), Fe(III) and Co(II). The optimum pH values for extraction are 6.5-7.0, 5.0-6.0, 5.5-7.5, 5.0-6.5, 6.5-8.0, 5.5-7.0, 4.0-5.0(More)
The absorption and fluorescence spectra of imipramine and carbamazepine have been recorded in solvents of different polarity and β-cyclodextrin (β-CD). The inclusion complexes for both drugs are investigated by UV-visible, fluorimetry and DFT. Solvents study shows isotropic polarizability structure is present in imipramine while the amide group inhibits the(More)
Spectral characteristics of sudan I (SDI), sudan II (SDII) and mordant violet-5 (MV5) have been studied in various solvents and β-cyclodextrin (β-CD). The inclusion complex of the above molecules with β-CD was analyzed by UV-visible, fluorometry, and DFT methods. The solvent study shows that azo-hydrazo tautomer is present in these molecules. The increase(More)
Spectral characteristics of 1-(2,4-diamino phenylazo) naphthalene (FBRR, fat brown RR) and 4-aminoazobenzene (AAB) have been studied in various solvents, varying hydrogen ion concentrations and in β-cyclodextrin (β-CD). The inclusion complex of FBRR and AAB with β-CD were analysed by UV-visible, fluorometry and CAche-DFT methods. Solvent study reveals that(More)
Amberlite XAD-16 was loaded with 4-{[(2-hydroxyphenyl)imino]methyl}-1,2-benzenediol (HIMB) via azo linker and the resulting resin AXAD-16-HIMB explored for enrichment of Zn(II), Mn(II), Ni(II), Pb(II), Cd(II), Cu(II), Fe(III) and Co(II) in the pH range 5.0-8.0. The sorption capacity was found between 56 and 415mumolg(-1) and the preconcentration factors(More)
