Spherical gold nanoparticles of approximately 16nm were synthesized using a sonochemical reduction method and characterized using UV-vis spectroscopy, atomic force microscopy (AFM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The binding of these gold nanoparticles with bovine serum albumin (BSA) and human serum albumin (HSA) was investigated using UV-vis(More)
Colloidal uncapped and starch capped CdS (SCdS) nanoparticles were prepared and interaction with bovine serum albumin (BSA) have been studied by UV-visible, FT-IR, steady state, time resolved and synchronous fluorescence spectroscopic measurements. BSA molecules adsorbed on the surface of colloidal CdS through the capping agent. The apparent association(More)
The photoinduced interaction of TGA capped CdTe quantum dots (QDs) with porphyrins such as meso-tetrakis(4-sulfonatophenyl)porphyrin [TSPP], meso-tetrakis(4-carboxyphenyl)porphyrin [TCPP], meso-tetrakis (4-N-methylpyridyl)porphyrin [TMPyP] and meso-tetraphenylporphyrin [TPP] has been studied by using absorption, steady state and time resolved fluorescence(More)
In this article, we describe a new platform for probing double stranded DNA (dsDNA) by tracing the "on-off-on" fluorescence signals of quantum dots-cationic porphyrin utilizing fluorescence and synchronous fluorescence measurements. Electrostatic interaction between the negatively charged thioglycolic acid capped CdTe quantum dots (CdTe-TGA QDs) and(More)
A simple and efficient one-pot method for the synthesis of 14-aryl-14H-dibenzo[a,j]xanthene derivatives using Ni(ClO4)2·6H2O as a catalyst is described. DNA-binding properties of 14-aryl-14H-dibenzo[a,j]xanthene derivatives 1a, 1j, 1l, 1m, and 1n were investigated using calf thymus DNA by electronic absorption spectroscopy and fluorescence spectroscopy.(More)
Novel bioactive complexes of Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II) metal ions with Schiff base ligand derived from histidine and 1,3-indandione were synthesized and thoroughly characterized by various analytical and spectral techniques. The biological investigations were carried out to examine the efficiency of the binding interaction of all the complexes with(More)
Four 2-oxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carbaldehyde N-substituted thiosemicarbazone ligands (H(2)-OQtsc-R, where R = H, Me, Et or Ph) and their corresponding new copper(II) complexes [CuCl(2)(H(2)-OQtsc-H)]·2H(2)O (1), [CuCl(2)(H(2)-OQtsc-Me)]·2H(2)O (2), [CuCl(2)(H(2)-OQtsc-Et)(CH(3)OH)]Cl (3) and [CuCl(H-OQtsc-Ph)]·CH(3)OH (4) have been synthesized in order to(More)
In this present study, we investigated thio glycolic acid-capped cadmium telluride quantum dots (TGA-CdTe QDs) as nano carrier to study the antiarthritic activity of quercetin on adjuvant induced arthritic Wistar rats. The free radical scavenging activity of QDs-QE complex was evaluated by 2,2'-azinobis-3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonic acid (ABTS),(More)
Two sensitizers based on amino acids coupled with perylene moiety having absorption in the visible region have been designed and their interaction with doped and undoped TiO2 for the application of dye sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) has been studied. The synthesized compounds PDI-PA and PDI-AA were characterized using (1)H and (13)C NMR, Mass and FT-IR(More)
The fluorescence quenching of 9-aminoacridine by certain biologically important catechols and rutin was investigated using absorption, steady state and time resolved fluorescence measurements. The in vitro-antioxidant activities of the above compounds were studied using deoxyribose degradation assay and nitric oxide scavenging assay. The experimental(More)
