The well-characterized, monodisperse nature of reverse micelles formed by sodium bis-(2-ethylhexyl)sulfosuccinate/water/isooctane and their usefulness in assimilating compounds of varied interests have been exploited to investigate the effect of acetyl modified amino acids (MAA) viz., N-acetyl-L-glycine (NAG), N-acetyl-L-aspartic acid (NAA) and(More)
The course of temperature percolation in a w/o microemulsion system comprising water/bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate sodium, AOT/isooctane affected by the presence of additives has been investigated. Additives, viz., organic derivatives of chalcogens including dipyridyl diselenide (Py2Se2), diphenyl diselenide (Ph2Se2), and dipyridyl ditelluride (Py2Te2),(More)
A simple and efficient method has been described to synthesize the hitherto unknown imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine selenides (5a-l) by reaction of 2-chloroimidazo [1,2-a]pyridines with aryl/heteroaryl selenols, generated in situ by reduction of various diselenides with hypophosphorous acid. The crystal structures of 3-nitro-2-(phenylselanyl)-imidazo[1,2-a]pyridine(More)
We report a novel strategy for the synthesis of aqueous stable, carboxylated gold nanoparticles (GNPs) by using glutamic acid as the reducing agent. The ratio of chloroaurate ions, AuCl(-)(4) to glutamic acid was optimized in the reaction medium to obtain monodispersed GNPs. Glutamic acid reduced gold nanoparticles were characterized by UV-visible, FTIR,(More)
The purpose of present study was to formulate microemulsion composed of oleic acid+phosphate buffer (PB)+Tween 80+ethanol and to investigate its potential as drug delivery system for an antitubercular drug rifampicin. The pseudo-ternary phase diagram has been delineated at constant surfactant/cosurfactant ratio (K(m) 0.55). Conductivity (sigma) and(More)
The purpose of present study is to formulate microemulsion composed of oleic acid, phosphate buffer, Tween 80, ethanol and to investigate its potential as drug delivery system for an antitubercular drug isoniazid. The pseudo-ternary phase diagram (Gibbs Triangle) was delineated at constant surfactant/co-surfactant ratio (Km 0.55). Changes in the(More)
A U-type microemulsion of Brij 96 has been characterized with respect to the change in cosurfactant, oil chain length on dilution, water solubility, and water solubilization capacity. The phase behavior of the systems has been mapped with different oils. Several techniques, viz., conductivity, optical microscopy, dilution method, absorption, and FT-IR(More)
Conductivity, static fluorescence and (1)H NMR measurements have been carried out to study the micellar behavior of aqueous solutions of dodecyldimethylethylammonium bromide (DDAB), dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride (DTAC) and tetradecyltrimethylammonium chloride (TDAC) in absence and presence of alpha-cyclodextrin (alpha-CD), beta-cyclodextrin (beta-CD),(More)
In this work, we report the size tunable synthesis of water-dispersed gold nanoparticles by using octadecylamine (ODA) as the reducing agent, that electrostatically complexes with the chloroaurate ions, reduces them, and subsequently caps the gold nanoparticles. Amine-capped gold nanoparticles, thus formed, were subsequently coordinated with a secondary(More)
The microemulsion composed of oleic acid, phosphate buffer, ethanol, and Tween (20, 40, 60, and 80) has been investigated in the presence of antitubercular drugs of extremely different solubilities, viz. isoniazid (INH), pyrazinamide (PZA), and rifampicin (RIF). The phase behavior showing the realm of existence of microemulsion has been delineated at(More)
