The purpose of this research was to develop mouth dissolve tablets of nimesulide. Granules containing nimesulide, camphor, crospovidone, and lactose were prepared by wet granulation technique. Camphor was sublimed from the dried granules by exposure to vacuum. The porous granules were then compressed. Alternatively, tablets were first prepared percentage(More)
Pretreatment of rice straw on pilot scale steam explosion has been attempted to achieve maximum sugar recovery. Three different reaction media viz. water, sulfuric acid and phosphoric acid (0.5%, w/w) were explored for pretreatment by varying operating temperature (160, 180 and 200°C) and reaction time (5 and 10min). Using water and 0.5% SA showed almost(More)
Purified β-glucosidase was immobilized on SiO2 nanoparticles with 52 % efficiency and 14.1 % yield. It had a temperature optima at 60 °C and pH optima of 5.0. Immobilized enzyme was fairly stable at 60-70 °C. After immobilization, the Km value of β-glucosidase for p-nitrophenyl-β-d-glucopyranoside (pNPG) increased from 0.9 to 1.074 mM and Vmax decreased(More)
Mobile commerce is the next growing area in electronic commerce and mobile computing. These are sophisticated, data intensive mobile applications whose success strongly depends on the efficiency by which data are disseminated to a large number of mobile users. Different techniques have been put forward of which the most promising are the push-based(More)
Proteases have found a wide application in the several industrial processes, such as laundry detergents, protein recovery or solubilization, prion degradation, meat tenderizations, and in bating of hides and skins in leather industries. But the main hurdle in industrial application of proteases is their economical production on a large scale. The present(More)
In software industries, individuals at different levels from customer to an engineer apply diverse mechanisms to detect to which class a particular bug should be allocated. Sometimes while a simple search in Internet might help, in many other cases a lot of effort is spent in analyzing the bug report to classify the bug. So there is a great need of a(More)
The extracellular β-glucosidase from microorganisms is generally produced in low levels. Therefore, in this study, a β-glucosidase hyperproducing mutant was developed by multiple exposures of ethyl methyl sulfonate (EMS) and ultraviolet (UV) radiation (both individually and jointly) to Bacillus subtilis strain (PS). The developed mutants were screened,(More)
Plant growth-promoting rhizobacteria (PGPR) pseudomonads have a large number of lipopolysaccharides on the cell surface, which induces immune responses. Cd-resistant PGPR prevalent at the Cd-affected sites under biophytostabilization was monitored. Transmissiom electron microscopy was used to the study the behavior of tolerance of PGPR to cadmium level and(More)
In this study, commercial surfactants have been investigated at economically viable dosage to enhance the enzymatic saccharification of pretreated wheat straw at high solid loadings. Twenty one surfactants were evaluated with pilot scale pretreated wheat straw and mechanism of surfactant action has been elucidated. One surfactant has improved the(More)
The aim of this work was to study the dilute acid pretreatment of rice straw (RS) and fermentable sugar recovery at high solid loadings at pilot scale. A series of pretreatment experiments were performed on RS resulting in >25wt% solids followed by enzymatic hydrolysis without solid-liquid separation at 20 and 25wt% using 10FPU/g of the pretreated residue.(More)
