Nanotechnology is gaining momentum due to its ability to transform metals into nanoparticles. The synthesis, characterization, and applications of biologically synthesized nanomaterials have become an important branch of nanotechnology. Plant extracts are a cost-effective, ecologically friendly, and efficient alternative for the large-scale synthesis of(More)
Calcium phosphate (CaP) scaffolds have been widely and successfully used with osteoblast cells for bone tissue regeneration. However, it is necessary to investigate the effects of these scaffolds on odontoblast cells' proliferation and differentiation for dentin tissue regeneration. In this study, three different hydroxyapatite (HA) to beta tricalcium(More)
Three sorbent materials (A18C6-MS, DA18C6-MS and AB18C6-MS) based on the crown ether ligands, 1-aza-18-crown-6, 1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diazacyclo octadecane and 4'-aminobenzo-18-crown-6, respectively, were prepared by the chemical immobilization of the ligand onto mesoporous silica support. The sorbents were characterized by FT-IR, scanning electron(More)
Poly (vinyl chloride) membrane electrodes that responded selectively towards the antimalarial drug chloroquine are described. The electrodes were based on the use of the lipophilic potassium tetrakis(4-chlorophenyl)borate as ion-exchanger and bis(2-ethylhexyl)adipate (BEHA), or trioctylphosphate (TOP) or dioctylphenylphosphonate (DOPP) as plasticizing(More)
The growing interest of nanotechnology in dentistry has sparked various applications of biomaterials in nanoscale to be developed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the genotoxicity effect of locally produced hydroxyapatite-silica nanocomposite (School of Dental Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia) using Comet assay on human lung fibroblast(More)
The odontogenic and osteogenic potential of dental pulp stem cells (DPSCs) and stem cells from human exfoliated deciduous tooth (SHED) have been shown clearly by various in vitro and in vivo studies. The findings are promising and demonstrated that dental tissue engineering can give a new hope to the individuals suffering from tooth loss and dental(More)
The title compound, C(14)H(11)BrN(4)O(4), comprises two crystallographically independent mol-ecules (A and B) in the asymmetric unit. In mol-ecule B, intra-molecular bifurcated N-H⋯O and N-H⋯Br hydrogen bonds and in mol-ecule A, an intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bond generate S(6) ring motifs. The dihedral angle between the phenyl and benzene rings is 5.44(More)
Nanocomposite is used as a dental filling to restore the affected tooth, especially in dental caries. The dental nanocomposite (KelFil) for tooth restoration used in this study was produced by the School of Dental Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia and is incorporated with monodispersed, spherical nanosilica fillers. The aim of the study was to(More)
The title thio-semicarbazone derivative, C(12)H(18)N(4)S, features intra-molecular N-H⋯N and C-H⋯S hydrogen bonds which generate S(5) ring motifs. The dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the thio-urea unit is 6.30 (6)° indicating planarity in the mol-ecule. Inter-molecular N-H⋯S hydrogen bonds generate dimers with an R(2) (2)(8) ring motif. The(More)
Sorbent material based on a novel thiosemicarbazone compound, C H N S, was prepared by 12 18 4 immobilizing the ligand into gel matrix (SG). The SG sorbent was characterized by FT-IR, EDX, SEM, TEM and TGA. The competitive sorption characteristics of eight transition metal ions (Ag , Cu , Co , Ni , Fe , Pb , Zn + 2+ 2+ + 3+ 2+ 2+ and Mn ) using batch method(More)
