The physicochemical properties of lentil starch were measured and linked up with its functional properties and compared with those of corn and potato starches. The amylose content of lentil starch was the highest among these starches. The crystallinity and gelatinization enthalpy of lentil starch were the lowest among these starches. The high amylose:(More)
The dynamic interfacial tension (DIFT) at oil-water interface, diffusion coefficients, surface hydrophobicity, zeta potential and emulsifying properties, including emulsion activity index (EAI), emulsion stability index (ESI) and droplet size of lentil protein isolate (LPI), were measured at different pH and LPI concentration, in order to elucidate its(More)
We introduce a new approach to enhancing the optical power-limiting function at near-IR wavelength (~800 nm) by coupling effective two-photon absorption in one molecule with excited-state absorption in another molecule. We experimentally demonstrate this approach by using a strong two-photon absorbing dye, AF-380, and a strong reverse saturable absorber,(More)
This paper studies the influence of alkyl-chain length in poly(3-alkylthiophene)s over the morphology of thin films and electrical parameters of the devices based on it. Regioregular poly(3-hexylthiophene) and poly(3-octylthiophene) were chosen as the semiconducting materials for the study. The morphological variations were studied by absorption(More)
Introduction: Deciphering how life would have chemically originated continues to be an intriguing mystery. Although the exact sequence of events still remains elusive, a good body of research has narrowed down possible processes that would have been crucial for the transition from chemistry to biology. One pertinent aspect is to understanding the abiogenic(More)
In this article we present an artifact due to the conventional use of periodic boundary condition (PBC) which produces misleading results on charge transport behavior at low field regime. When simulated using PBC, artifact produces a negative field dependence of mobility (NFDM) at low field regime even when the positional disorder is neglected. The artifact(More)
Irradiation effects of 8 MeV electrons on photoluminescence properties of thioglycolic acid (TGA) capped CdTe quantum Dots (QD) are presented. Steady-state and time-resolved photoluminescence (PL) spectroscopy were used for anlayzing PL properties of both irradiated and unirradiated quantum dots. The Photoluminescence peak, intensity and lifetimes were(More)
Introduction: Deciphering how life would have chemically originated on our pale blue dot continues to be an intriguing mystery for the Astrobiology community at large. Although the exact sequence of events which led to the emergence of life still remains elusive, a good body of research has narrowed down possible processes that would have been crucial for(More)
