Cyanobacteria as efficient producers of mycosporine‐like amino acids
Mycosporine‐like amino acids are the most common group of transparent ultraviolet radiation absorbing intracellular secondary metabolites. These molecules absorb light in the range of ultraviolet‐AExpand
A comparative study of fatty acids and sterols profiles in seed oil of five Cassia species
The fatty acids and sterols composition of seed oil were determined from five Cassia species namely: Cassia absus Linn., Cassia alata Linn., Cassia javanica Linn., Cassia laevigata Linn., CassiaExpand
Use of dielectric barrier discharge in air for surface modification of polyester substrate to confer durable wettability and enhance dye uptake with natural dye eco-alizarin
In the present work, polyester film and fabric were exposed to dielectric barrier discharge in air at atmospheric pressure to increase wettability and dye uptake properties. The surface of dielectricExpand
Bacterial Weathering of Asbestos
The process of bioweathering involving natural microbes, natural plants and transgenic animals has proven to be a very efficient and effective tool for detoxifying xenobiotics. The presentExpand
Synthesis of anthraquinone-capped TiO2 nanoparticles using R. emodi roots: preparation, characterization and cytotoxic potential
AbstractRheum emodi is a Himalayan herb of family Polygonaceace, known for its medicinal properties owing to the presence of chrysophanol, emodin, physcion, aloe emodi anthraquinones as majorExpand
A theoretical analysis of bi-metallic (Cu–Ag)n = 1 − 7 nano alloy clusters invoking DFT based descriptors
Abstract Due to its large scale applications in the real field, the study of bi-metallic nano-alloy clusters is an active field of research. Though a number of experimental reports are available inExpand
The removal of impurities from gray cotton fabric by atmospheric pressure plasma treatment and its characterization using ATR-FTIR spectroscopy
Gray cotton fabric shows hydrophobic characteristics due to presence of non-cellulosic impurities in outermost layers of cotton fiber. In the present study, atmospheric pressure plasma treatment forExpand
