Experimental investigation of Al-F species formation and transformation during coagulation for fluoride removal using alum and PACl
Abstract Aluminium salts are widely investigated for the coagulation process for removal of fluoride, but the residual Al above the acceptable limit is the main concern which is mainly due to the
Improved active anticorrosion coatings using layer-by-layer assembled ZnO nanocontainers with benzotriazole
Abstract In the present work, a novel approach for the synthesis of nanocontainers by encapsulation has been presented, which are capable of responsive release of corrosion inhibitors
Advances in coagulation technique for treatment of fluoride-contaminated water: a critical review
Abstract Fluoride contamination of groundwater has become a major concern worldwide, resulting in serious medical conditions such as dental and skeletal fluorosis. Consequently, the WHO recommends
From rotten grapes to industrial exploitation: Komagataeibacter europaeus SGP37, a micro-factory for macroscale production of bacterial nanocellulose.
A novel, high yielding bacterial cell factory Komagataeibacter europaeus SGP37 is reported, isolated from rotten grapes, for the production of high quality and value added BNC and may offer a promising platform for industrial scale production of nanocelluloses.
Biotransformation of sweet lime pulp waste into high-quality nanocellulose with an excellent productivity using Komagataeibacter europaeus SGP37 under static intermittent fed-batch cultivation.
Herein, sweet lime pulp waste (SLPW) was utilized as a low- or no-cost feedstock for the production of bacterial nanocellulose (BNC) alone and in amalgamation with other nutritional supplements by
Evaluation of the efficacy of a fungal consortium for degradation of azo dyes and simulated textile dye effluents
Azo dyes are widely prevalent environmental contaminants that are recalcitrant to biodegradation processes and have detrimental biological effects. Hence, exploring the novel microbial agents and to
Influence of Alpha Nanoalumina Reinforcement Content on the Microstructure, Mechanical and Corrosion Properties of Al6061-Al2O3 Composite
Sol–gel prepared nanoparticles of alpha alumina were mixed in their varying weight percentage (0.5, 1, 1.5, 2 and 2.5 wt.%) with Al-6061 powder for synthesizing of Al6061-Al2O3 nanocomposites using
Plasmodium Hsp40 and human Hsp70: A potential cochaperone-chaperone complex.
This work establishes that the PEXEL motifs containing Type II Pf DNAJ proteins specifically interact with hHsp70 (HSPA1A), and suggests that there exists a specific factor in PfDNAJ that determines the choice of cognate Hsp70.
Studies on CdSe/PVK nanocomposites films for electroluminescent display applications
Abstract In the present work, the thin films of CdSe/PVK nanocomposites with various concentration of CdSe have been synthesized by chemical route. Polyvinyl carbazole (PVK) was used as a stabilizer
Production and characterization of Komagataeibacter xylinus SGP8 nanocellulose and its calcite based composite for removal of Cd ions
Results suggest that cellulose produced by K. xylinus strain SGP8 showed excellent material properties, and modified BNC (BNC-CaCO3 composite) could effectively be used for remediation of toxic levels of Cd from the contaminated system.
