The green synthesis of metallic nanoparticles (NPs) has attracted tremendous attention in recent years because these protocols are low cost and more environmentally friendly than standard methods of synthesis. In this article, we report a simple and eco-friendly method for the synthesis of silver NPs using an aqueous solution of Pulicaria glutinosa plant(More)
A green, one-step approach for the preparation of graphene/Ag nanocomposites (PE-HRG-Ag) via simultaneous reduction of both graphene oxide (GRO) and silver ions using Pulicaria glutinosa plant extract (PE) as reducing agent is reported. The plant extract functionalizes the surfaces of highly reduced graphene oxide (HRG) which helps in conjugating the Ag NPs(More)
Recently, green reduction of graphene oxide (GRO) using various natural materials, including plant extracts, has drawn significant attention among the scientific community. These methods are sustainable, low cost, and are more environmentally friendly than other standard methods of reduction. Herein, we report a facile and eco-friendly method for the(More)
BACKGROUND Green synthesis of nanomaterials finds the edge over chemical methods due to its environmental compatibility. Herein, we report green synthesis of silver nanoparticles (Ag NPs) mediated with dextran. Dextran was used as a stabilizer and capping agent to synthesize Ag NPs using silver nitrate (AgNO3) under diffused sunlight conditions. RESULTS(More)
Vanadia nanoparticles supported on nickel manganese mixed oxides were synthesized by co-precipitation method. The catalytic properties of these materials were investigated for the oxidation of benzyl alcohol using molecular oxygen as oxidant. It was observed that the calcination temperature and the size of particles play an important role in the catalytic(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C11H11NO4, contains two mol-ecules, A and B, with different conformations: in mol-ecule A, the norborne and carb-oxy-lic acid groups lie to the same side of the heterocycle, whereas in a mol-ecule B, they lie on opposite sides. In the crystal, the A mol-ecules form R 2 (2)(8) carb-oxy-lic acid inversion dimers,(More)
In the title compound, C(7)H(8)NO(4) (+)·Cl(-)·2H(2)O, the organic mol-ecule is almost planar with an r.m.s. deviation of 0.0164 Å for all non-H atoms. An S(6) ring motif is formed due to an intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond. In the crystal, the mol-ecules are linked into a three-dimensional network by N-H⋯Cl, N-H⋯O, O-H⋯Cl and O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds.
BACKGROUND Sesquiterpene lactones (STLs) make a diverse and huge group of bio-active constituents that have been isolated from several plant families. However, the greatest numbers are present in Asteraceae family having more than 3000 different reported structures. Recently several researchers have reported that STLs have significant antioxidant and(More)
Suzuki-Miyaura coupling reaction catalyzed by the palladium (Pd)-based nanomaterials is one of the most versatile methods for the preparation of biaryls. However, use of organic solvents as reaction medium causes a big threat to environment due to the generation of toxic byproducts as waste during the work up of these reactions. Therefore, the use of water(More)
